Sending Love Your Way

Hello friends,  thanks so much for stopping by today - it is Saturday here in the Southern Hemisphere and a beautiful autumn/fall day.  Autumn/fall is a spectacular season here in the Nations Capital - the autumnal colours are divine - God's artwork - you have to love that! 

I am using a negative die from the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Leaves So Very Gorgeous Etched Dies Good Vibes Only Collection by Stephanie Low. I had to smile when I saw that my friend Spellbinders International Ambassador Christine Emberson had a similar idea and has a video HERE on how to create a CAS card using the same Die- she does it so well!  Don't you just love how we can start off with the same product and end up with something so different!

I have cut/embossed the  Leaves So Very Gorgeous Etched Dies Small Leaves using the inner and outer cutting edges and white card stock. NOTE:  Make sure to centre the Die in the centre of the card front.  Next I have cut/embossed the card front using the largest two dies from the Nestabilities Hemstitch Rectangles Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken.  All dies have been cut using the  Platinum Die Cutting MachineThe dies have been outlined using Chameleon Pens Detail Pen.

The card front has been popped up onto a pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  I have used stamps by both Seth Apter  and Tammy Tutterow to create a mixed media background using Imagine Memento Inks in Rhubarb Stalk, Summer Sky, Bamboo Leaves and Dandelion. 
 Faux Enamel Dots have been added using Imagine irRESISTibles Pico Embellisher in Tuxedo Black. A computer generated sentiment has been popped up using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.
