Bricks and Roses

Hello friends - thanks so much for stopping by. I have a card to share today that has been created using one of the Spellbinders Stamp and Die sets - I love these, although I don't mind fussy cutting, being able to Die cut the image is so quick and easy - and exact - and you have to love that! 

The  Feather Stamp and Die Set from the Earth Air Water Collection by Stephanie Low has been stamped onto white card stock using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black and coloured using Chameleon Art Pens.  It has then been cut/embossed using the co-ordinating Die and the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" Platform.

The card front has been cut/embossed using the Spellbinders 5 x 7 Matting Basics A Card Creator Etched Dies. I have used the Want2Scrap Brick Stencil and Imagine Fireworks Spray in Danube Blue and Rhubarb Stalk.   I have secured the Stencil using repostional tape to make sure it does not move while spraying.  Once the stencil has been removed, lightly splatter white paint onto the brisks.

The Flowers have been popped up onto the card front using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares. The card front is then popped up onto a pre-cut blue card base also using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  A computer generated sentiment has been adhered across the top portion of the card.  Want2Scrap Baby Bling - Black Rhinestones are an optional embellishment - randomly placing them on the brickwork.
