Sending you a warm smile!

Good Morning, hope everybody is ok, safe and warm, I know some places in the UK are suffering a bit!

Well get your Spellbinders out and cheer yourselves up...

This one of the samples I made for last weeks Creative Expressions shows on Create & Craft.
Its an 8x8 using the new Moroccan dies, Picoh Circle, Anemones, Fluer de Lis Rectangle, Fancy Tags, Foliage (surprise surprise)
I embossed Sentiments with Cosmic Shimmer Metallics/Darks powders-they are so lush!
I inked edges with Stormy Skies Distress ink.
The paper is an old Papermania pad.
White background was embossed with A4 Mica Mask.
Also used, Decorative pins, Crinkle edge ribbon, Organza roses, Cosmic Shimmer Pearly dots, White Inksentials pen.

Go on then, go look for a Creative Expressions retailer-you know you want to!

See you soon.

  7. Hi Maria,
    This is so lovely and I love the faux stitching around the anemones; it makes it look as if you have used a thick suede fabric. That effect and the added stitching around the tag diecut really gives the card something special.
    Gorgeous colours too (I love any shades of teal, lagoon, turquoise etc)! I bet you did a 'happy dance' after finishing this one, yea?!!
    Hope you're having a good day
    Hugs Linda

  9. Hello Maria, you have got everyone on the hunt for their nearest Creative Expressions stockists, I shall have to travel about an hour to find mind but looking forward to making a day out when the weather improves as the roads in rural Norfolk are unpredictable in these conditions. I just think today's card is extremely elegant and would be fitting for may occasions
