blogger the pain!! vintage floret die and stamp beautiful!!!

ok blogger had decided to play up and has not been publishing my scheduled posts so just to update you all on what you have missed,
Blog candy is now up and running as i have had some of my deliveries turn up from america, the stock is now on site click here
we have some beautiful stamps from spellbinders heartfelt creations
we have some dies which are honestly to die for!!
and we have some stuff from ranger, craft spinners, glitters,blending tools etc. so pop over and have a gander,

i had been trying so hard for so long to purchase the dies on site but trying to source them in England had proved difficult, so i bit the bullet and went direct so i could bring them to you too.

so do make sure you visit the shop as i can tell you they have been selling quick! down to 2 or 3 left on most items now, im also selling them on eBay.

anyway did everyone have a good time at ally pally ? i could not get there as its been a mad week, i had my daughters 18th to contend with last weds and then we have been doing stuff to the house fitting a new kitchen, then i had the deliveries to sort and get on-line asap so my feet didn't touch the ground.

I will stop rambling and get on with today's card..... im using one of the new sets in store,
its the leafy heartfelt creations stamp and die to match called vintage floret frame
i love this set and i think its wonderful we can now get stamps and dies to match what a difference to cards it makes

this card was to showcase the stamp and die more than anything else, so its not OTT its just so,
you will see by the close ups in the next photos how beautiful this die is.

ok started with blank card then i pick some white card, i first stamped my leafty stamp vintage floret frame, using my perfect medium pad and sprinkled Ranger-embossing-powder-Ancient-Gold in colour and heat embossed it,
i then took my leafy die and matched it to the embossed frame 
i ran it through the cutting machine and i was left with this beautiful embossed frame,
i mounted the frame using foam pads onto my cream card i then mounted that onto white card stock and then finally on to gold card stock

i did emboss my gold card stock with a embossing folder but i felt i was covering so much of the gold card up it doesn't matter whether you did or didn't emboss it.
then just for extra sparkle as the embossing powder sparkles a bit i placed three gems on to the middle of the flowers added two butterflies from les papillion dies

i cut my sentiment out of my d-lite labels embossed it and used forest green distress ink to highlight.

i placed the sentiment half in and out of the centre of the frame i could have gone for a round sentiment but i wanted a flag style popping out.
i made a bow and stuck a dazzler gem on to the middle.added that to the bottom of the card.
used faux cosmic shimmer pearls around edge of card
i felt the bottom was a bit plain so i dotted random faux pearls around the bottom.
i also added a bit of the distress ink to the side of the plain white card.

the frame is beautiful and although its very detailed it falls out the the die very easy . i use wax paper so i have no difficulties removing any dies.





i hoping on this picture you can see the detail of the stamp and die as well as the sparkle of the embossing powder.
you can do so much with this set. and use it for any occasion.

i do hope you like the die and stamp,
