Addicted to Stamps ” Gold “

Helloooooo you lovely crafters hope you are all tickety boo, fit as fiddles and such like. I myself have just had a bit of a tiff with a very sharp Sushi knife and instead of finely slicing my salmon have managed to slice the top off  my finger. Needless to say the Sushi is in the bin , I didn’t think my dinner guests would appreciate the outrageous red colour ! I’m going to keep this short as am in a fair bit of pain and am sporting quite a large bandage luckily on my left hand……looks like my Sushi party has turned into a pizza party !

 

Its time once again for another challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and our theme this week is GOLD being a jeweller I just love working with the stuff so I made a couple of cards and here they are for your perusal.

 

 

Looking back on some of my recent posts I’ve noticed that I am somewhat addicted to hearts of late and most of my cards feature them, please bear with me as I’m sure it’s a passing fancy . For this card I used the dreaded gilding flakes, I really love the effect but boy how I hate the mess, the mutts and I tend to become blinged up on the rare occasion that I use them and this time was no exception , even hubby got a little unexpected bling as he was quite curious about the process and stuck his finger in the flakes and sent them flying  all around the house. He was really amused by it all and quite impressed I have to say until he went to work sporting a bit of the shiny stuff on his forehead. He phoned me a little later when he reached our shop to inform me of how gorgeous he looked !!! I used the Indigoblu heart stamp which I lathered up with flitter glue and then added the gilding flakes ….and well made a mess rubbing them into the glue and generally getting all sticky and blingy. I wont bore you with the rest because A. it’s obvious what I did next and B’ my likkle finger wreally wreally hurts . Stamped sentiment by SU with their lovely gold embossing powder .

Yes I know another heart , your lucky I’m only sharing two as I made six variations on this card ! I used some gorgeous DP from a 12 x 12 paper pad that i have that was really expensive and fabulous and up until now I couldn’t bare to cut it up, of course the cover is hiding from me so cant tell you the name of its creators. The butterfly  is a Hero Arts Sizzix combo stamp and die cut stamped onto Rich Razzlebury card by SU and embossed with SU gold embossing powder and the same again for the sentiment.

Thank you all so much for supporting us at Addicted to Stamps we are a new challenge and its great to see so many of you wonderfully talented crafters joining in.

Take care
