Fresh Cut Bling

I’ve been busy taking out all my old DSP papers and putting in the new ones as well as taking out the old In Colour Cardstock and putting in the lovely new In Colours.

Now I have a mountain of retired DSP and In Colour cardstock and scraps that needs a new home so if youre after some please contact me as hubby is sick of all the boxes everywhere 🙁

artichokeblingcuts-envieI made this card the other week for the make n take at a demonstration. My hostess asked for Fresh Cuts with bling so thats what she got!!

You cant see the bling too well in the photo but the small flower from the Fresh Cuts set is stamped in Mellow Moss then covered with glue from the 2 way glue pen and dazzling diamonds sprinkled all over.

We had to wait for it to dry before we pierced a hole in the centre then put a rhinestone brad through the centre – we also put the brads backs through the white note layer to secure it firmly and as we have a Mellow Moss layer in the middle of the card you cant see the back of the brad.

Inside the card we stamped the ferny leaf stamp down the right hand side of the inside of the note as you can see here.

The mellow moss piece is stamped with the collage image and then adhered to the inside of the card as shown so you still have the right side of the note to write a message on.

The taffeta ribbon is tied around the card so it covers the start of the mellow moss piece and is knotted at the front of the card.

This last picture shows the three layers and you can actually see the centre flower a bit better here.

Now I’d better get back to my sorting so I can then make some more cards and samples to share with you!

Dont forget to check out the retired stamps I have for sale on my Stamp Clearance page and remember I now have all this Designer Series Paper to clear out as well.

Have a great Easter and remember a balanced diet is one with a chocolate in each hand!!
