Celebrate the Journey Show

Evening everyone:) x I hope you are all well and all had a  good weekend!
WOW! what an amazing few days I have had.....Yesterday I met Emma Lou and Richard from Heartfelt Creations to discuss the Create & Craft show today.....not sure what they thought of my choice of restaurant :) And of course today we had the 2 live hour shows bringing you the Celebrate the Journey collection..... an amazingly beautiful collection.
The shows went very, very well and were very enjoyable with the help from the fabulous Dean:)
I am so sorry I didn't get round to blogging a sneak peek of some of the cards yesterday, but I am here this evening to share one of my favourite samples that I made for the show.
  • I started with a black card blank measuring 7"x7"
  • I chose one of the 6" x 6" pink panels from the paper collection and adhered this to the card.
  • I die cut 2 of the decorative dies from the Timeless Amour die set. and adhered these to the top of the card.
  • Next I die cut and stamped a variety of size Vintage Florets and made them into one medium rose and 2 small roses. I also stamped and die cut some of the classic leaves and cut them up into single leaves.
  • I stamped and die cut the Celebrate the Journey Sentiments in dusky pink and used the decorative compass to back the medium sized rose in the centre.
  • I also added some of the flourish leaves in black card from the Gift Ensemble die set.
  • I added the leaves and roses as in picture.
  • Next I cut out one of the plain decorative panels and matted it onto some black card. I adhered this to the bottom half of the card with some foam pads.
  • I stamped the bicycle  in black ink onto cream card, coloured it in with distress markers and adhered this to the centre of the panel.
  • I used 2 of the wheels which are from the sentiments stamp set and used my ball tool to create a more rounded effect and added these with some 3D glue gel to each wheel to add a little bit of dimension to the bicycle.
  • Next I stamped and die cut out the 'Special Day' sentiment.
  • Finally I added some Stickles Glitter.
I also would like to thank you all on behalf of myself and Emma Lou for your emails....we had so many:) and Congratulations to the ladies that each will be receiving a card:)

I hope you liked my card  today:)

  7. Fabulous shows Nikki and the samples were stunning. It was great to see you and Emma Lou. Yesterday's card is beautiful, bicycles always remind me of times gone by a much slower and perhaps more enjoyable pace. Hope you manage a little rest today! :)
