Autumn Swirl from Heartfelt Creations

Its slipper day!
oh yes I can hear you say "You always have your slippers on Simms"
True, but its actually not naughty to live in them on Saturdays, so go right now and get those marabou piped kitten heels on-and the lads too if thats what floats your boat!
ooh but before you go skidding into the shoe rack, have a look at todays card..

Its another example of the stunning Autumn Swirl stamp set from Heartfelt Creations, available through Creative Expressions.

Unfortunately pics were taken before I got the new camera, need I say more...

I stamped with White chalk ink- I find it better than White Brilliance.
I glazed the leaves on the topper with glossy accents and then sprinkled a small amount of Cosmic Shimmer pastel glitter- I know you cant see the lovely effect in the dodgy pics!
If you dont like bright coloured glitters then I definitely recommend this Pastel set, you dont see pastels too often do you.

I also used some pearly dots, Spellbinders dies, Vintage ribbon.
The sentiment is from Claritystamp.

Ok now you can go for the slippers!
Enjoy your day, whatever your doing.

  7. Hi Maria and thank you for this stunning card. It's so nice to see something different now and again, and this subtle white stamping is just that.
    Well I am the exception to the rule, I live out of my slippers. I am a barefoot girl and only put slippers on my feet to go onto the cold kitchen floor. But I get your theme and it's perfect with me too!! Enjoy and please continue to entrall us.
