Spellbinders Hydrangeas

Hello friends - I had a busy day in The Studio yesterday, sorting out my patterned paper storage - it was fine how it was but... someone gave my DH a cupboard that as built to hold 12 x 12 patterned papers - so that it what it is doing - and as you know, one thing leads to another,  It took a lot longer than first thought - but it is perfect for the job...yes there will be photos...I am nearly ready to take some - it is about time they were updated.

Onto my card.  I showed the ladies at my last Workshop how to emboss with Dies, which is so easy - but very effective.  I also told them I would make a card using the embossed piece. I have used the Spellbinders Nestabilities Oval Ironwork Etched Dies #3 (#1 being the smallest).  The sandwich I used for the Platinum 6 was Standard Platform, die facing upwards, card stock, embossing mat followed by the embossing plate. 

May Arts Ribbon has been adhered around the centre of the embossed layer, secured using liquid glue.

I have stamped the Hydrangea from the Bunny Stamp and Die Set from the Spring Love Collection by Stephanie Low using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Back Ink and it has been coloured using Chameleon Pens.  The hydrangea has been cut out using the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" Platform and the co-ordinating die.  It is then popped up onto white card stock that has been cut/embossed using the Pierced Ovals #5 #6 Dies (#1being the smallest); using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  The layers have been popped up into the centre of the Oval Ironwork, also using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares and onto a precut card base.  

A double seam binding bow has been adhered to the left of the Pierced Ovals using liquid glue.  A lace flower and vintage button have been adhered to the bow centre.
