Bags and Glam

Time to play with my Made to Surprise shoes and bags stamp set. I wanted to do quite a simple card one. I had a few ideas but nothing seemed to work or look quite right, I was having a bad day. So decided to just go with ink resist and blending

They is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Cardmaking Tutorial
I begun by cutting a rectangle of white card using the nesting die

Using embossing ink and one.of the bag stamps. I stamped the image a number of times and heat embossed with white embossing powder

This was then blended with peacock Feathers and wilted violet.

The sentiment was heat embossed in ebony and die cut with the circle nesting die. This was blended in worn lipstick 

This was attached to the card using foam squares and was attached to the card base.

Gems and nuvo drops were then applied above the sentiment

Thanks for reading

Happy Crafting
