Stamp Set Showcase Week 8 (2)

Well it is back ... Yes XF has arrived for this season yehhhhh!

I rarely watch TV, but during the winter months I really enjoy watching XFactor and Strictly Come Dancing
That means Saturday and Sunday evening entertainment is back!

Are any of you out there like me? Or do you really dislike XF and/or Strictly??

See, now i have got distracted again, although I have to say that there was 2 performances tonight that had me and my hubby in tears. Performances from the heart! AMAZING

Anyway, back to


Todays card has been made for my Sister-in-Law's Birthday and I wanted to show how Gorgeous Grunge can create a subtle background to show off your main stamp set,

Here I have used Pink Pirouette and Soft Sky to create a sky kije background using the larger splodge stamp.I was also delighted to see the Pretty Prints Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is currently in the Clearnance Rack (on my website) at a very generous discount price ... so if you don't have it already, pop over to my on-line store and purchase one ...

And here is how I created the card.

Begin by trimming a piece of Marina Mist cardstock to 14.5cms x 14.5cms

Trim another piece of Marina Mist cardstock to12.5cms x 12.5cms

Trim a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 14cms x 14cms

Trim another piece of Whisper White cardstock to 12cms x 12cms

Take both pieces of Marina Mist cardstock and randomly stamp them with the larger Splodge stamp in the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set, using Pink Pirouette and Soft Sky ink.

Take the smallest piece of Whisper White cardstock, and over stamp the card with the Postage Due stamp, and the Birthday sentiment from Wetlands stamp set, using Soft Suede ink. Wrap around some Venetian Crochet Trim and tie a bow. Then wrap some linen thread around 2 fingers around 7 tines, twist and tie a knot. Pierce a hole close to the bows and insert an Antique Brad. Mount this panel onto the smallest piece of trimmed Marina Mist cardstock.

Now take the second piece of stamped Whisper White cardstock and Dry Emboss the cardstock using the Pretty Prints TIEF through either your Big Shot or Texture Boutique.
Mount this onto the remaining piece of Marina Mist cardstock/ 
Mount onto a 6" (15cms x 15cms) square Whisper White card blank 
Then mount the smaller panel on top of this using Stampin Dimensionals.
Add some Basic Pearls and you are all done

Happy Stamping
