To My Bestie
Good Tuesday morning to all to my lovely regulars, Thank you, and to all that just pass through also a big Thank you for dropping by.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend, and will look forward to the slightly warmer weather at the start of the week , only to prepare for another cold snap at the end of the week. "Roll on Spring". Although I passed the fire station last Tuesday on the way to the wholesalers and there were some beautiful Daffodils in all their glory on their front lawn, they looked so beautiful, but so early.
This is one of the new stamps from Creative Expressions that I have been sent to make some cards for February, I've just jumped the gun a bit, but they don't mind.
This stamp is called "Best Friend".
Products used :-
Foundation White card
Sue Wilson- EF- Rambling rose-EF026
Sue Wilson-Frames & tags- Dainty rectangular Frame
Spellbinders- Matting Basics A
Creative Expressions- Best Friend stamp
Tim Holtz- Distress Inks- Wild honey
Creative Expressions- Gold Dazzler
Black & White stones from my stash
I started with an 8x8 black card, and matt and layered it with gold mirror card and an embossed layer of white card using the Rambling rose EF. I then used the spellbinders Matting dies in black, white and mirror card. On the white card I stamped the Best Friend stamp. I stamped the sentiment onto white card and cut it out with the oblong die from the SW Frame & Tags die and coloured it with the wild honey ink. I used sticky pads on each layer for dimension. I made a big luscious bow and added a gold coloured Sparkle.
I really hope you like it. Please feel free to leave a comment. It's really nice to know what you think.
Take care all, talk soon.
