feeling Cherry!

Happy Tuesday,

I promised some pictures from Ally Pally so there a couple at the bottom of a late night visit to a well Known American burger chain for dessert.  Today's card is form my favourite from the new stamp sets I have designed this set is called Cherry Blossom Elements and in this card I have used the main element and one of the sentiments.












The whole set looks like this...

I stared this card by stamping the main element with perfect medium onto lilac foundation card and embossed the design with Cosmic Shimmer true detail white embossing powder and heat set it.  I cut a mat out using the square die from the New York collection herald square die. I then hand cut the stamped image out and mounted it, with a couple of layers onto the square.

The background is made using the New York collection background which I know is rectangular however I have med it into a square.  To learn how you will need to tune into my stemming shows at the end of the month as I have a demo planned for this one.

I simply added a seam binding bow and a few pearls as well as my usual set of layers which just frame a simple stamped image (IMHO)

Ingredients:
Creative Expressions Clear Stamps by John Lockwood
Lilac & Milk foundation card
Cosmic Shimmer true detail white embossing powder
Creative Expressions craft dies by Sue Wilson
New York background
Herald Square

Enjoy...

Firstly we have Mr Phill Martin who was caught unawares eating a donut!

The second picture is Sue Wilson and Julia Watts enjoying a McFlurry, its the first time Sue has been in this chain for years so I am informed.

Sorry but these are the only pictures that came out I will check my phone for any more tomorrow.
