Once again its my day for the Creative Expressions design team, seems to come round every week, and it's worth popping over to the Creative Epressions blog as we have three new members of the design team so here's the chance to see some new takes on the fantastic range of Products!
This month we were asked to use the new single and frame stamps shown by Julia Watts last month and I really love this Curled Frame stamp with a beautiful sentiment.
I started by stamping the image onto a pale blue card using a navy ink pad which I then heat embossed using Cosmic Shimmer detail clear embossing powder. I then added a few dots of cosmic shimmer ivory PVA glue dots to the circles handily provided on the frame.
I matted this onto another piece of the navy and added a strip of ribbon down the left hand side.
This whole piece, before being finished off was then added to a large 20 x 2o piece of coconut white card with a small, 21.5cm x 21.5cm, mat. To finish the card I die cut a couple of the butterflies, in more coconut white, using the dies form Sues Magical Butterflies die set. I also added a coupe f the Grand Vinery dies cuts, again in the white peeping cut form the stamped image.
Finally the card was dressed with Cosmic Shimmer pearl PVA glue which I used to make different sized dots, used as the bodies on the butterflies as well as to add some decorative edges in alternate corners.
