Hello, I just fell in love with this card when I first saw it on the FB Spellbinders Paper Arts Page.
The lady that designed and posted it there is Irina Blount.
I went on line to buy the 'Cross Collection' and have used them lots of times, as this card is ideal for so many different occasions.
I also used my Hougie Board to emboss some of the lines needed on the card stock layers.
The Spellbinder die is the 'Fleur De Lis' Shapeabilities Pendant.
Thanks for stopping by today.

I first saw this card design in a magazine.
I think it was in Card Making Inspirations.
I used various fonts from Quickutz Dies for the numbers and Nestabilities Stars. The Snake came from 'google' and I printed it and added some Glossy Accents onto it's 'scales'!
I think it is a fun card and I enjoyed making it.
It is easy to do but takes some time with the doodling ! Give it a go....why not!

I am not posting a card today.I have been playing a lot with this new 'bit of kit.' Well, say new but I bought my Melt Pot in April at the Ally-Pally in London.
I have only just got around to using it because I saw an article in this months Craft Stamper magazine called Faux Porcelain Flowers. I read the article and looked on the site recommended /http://sherrycheever.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/ and was hooked !!
|My first faux porcelain flower|
I had a great afternoon and this is what I produced ....not bad for a FIRST attempt .
The pink flower was cut with my Nestabilities (Dahlia) then coloured in with distressed inks and its dippy time into the pot!
The second and I think, better flower, was cut using the first four Blossom Nestie dies and some lovely printed paper.
I also used a heat gun on this one to smooth out the bits and bubbles left after I had removed it from the pot.
The video on Sherry's site is easy to follow. However, she uses a different flower and a slightly different technique to the one in the Craft Stamper mag....anyway I had great fun.
Thanks for stopping by
Have a good weekend
