Thank you & Just Because!

Hello Everyone!! Well its very bright here in Sunny Manchester....not very often I say that! Mr Binxz is out enjoying the weather slinking around the garden & I am pegging washing on my line for the first time this year! Today though I would show you what I have been up to with my latest set of Prima Stamps & Craftwork cards Glitz & Glamour cardstock as well as some Papermainia papers & Of course...Peel off's, whaich I have had a few comments about of late! Glad to here other's like them as much as I do!!! I embossed the dress from with Cosmic Shimmers Coco Bean Powder & while it was still hot & sprinkled some Brown Pee Wee Glitter onto give some extra shimmer! I used Tim Holts Disstress Ink Pad in Brushed Corduroy for the distressing effect on the paper & card and and Stazon Timber Brown for the sentiment. I made up the little Rosette from looped ribbon stuck to a sticky paper disk & finished off with a Papermainia Gemstone Sticker. I sent this Card to Wipso, who's blog link is on my sidebar, as a Thank you for the"Pay It Forward" gifts she sent me. Which I will be honoring very soon!

My next Card is using pretty much the same ink's and Stamps as the last one but doing something bit different with the UTEE. I stamped the cream card black with a La Blanch Script stamp and then inked around it and applied a Peel Off Boarder on the one edge & the top left corner. I gave my stamped image 3 layers of the Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel. On the last layer I sprinkled some of those tiny little balls over the image (y'know the ones that go everywhere) and a little glitter over it, then cracked it all over and rubbed some Tim Holtz Vintage photo ink over it & rubbed it into the cracks and wiped off the excess. The sentiment Stamp is by Paula Pascual from the" Mixed Sentiments" set. The fame is from a sheet of stickers I got in one of those cheap book shops. I made a double bow & cut the loops and snipped in to it. I sent this one to My Aunty as she's been a bit off ill of late!
Hope you all well & enjoying the weather were you are, as we may not have it for long!!

Great cards Lavinia, lots of wonderful techniques. I love the colour in the first card and I particularly like the second card with a bit of cracking it's very interesting and the card is very nicely balanced. You're right the weather was fantastic today, got all my sheets dry too:0)
I hope your Aunty makes a quick recovery:0) xxx
