Its that Clarity Corset - Again!!


What a gorgeous day it has been, hope you have all enjoyed it. The only downside to nice weather is you don't want to be inside to craft - so just a quick post to show a card I made on Friday night.

I have used my new Marrianne Die to make another easel card, I sat the other night watching TV with the Cuttlebug on my knee and cut out loads of these frames, I just love how they look! I also cut out lots of
Nesties circles and now have a little box full and just waiting to be used!

On this this card I used a Textile CB embossing folder. I stamped the corset ,and heat embossed with white embossing powder, on the same purple paper I used for the backing circle. The base card is a pale mauve hammer card, and I used Dusty Concord Distressing Inks on the embossing and the punched flower. Little purple gems and a bit of Glamour Dust to finish off.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Stamping for the Weekend -  My Favourite Things
Sassy Studio Designs - Easel cardhttp://sassystudiodesigns.blogspot.com/
Delicious Doodles - Flourishes & Bling
Bling it On - Anything Goes

That's it for now - off to water the garden after all this sunshine.

Thanks for looking.

This is gorgeous Avril - love the dress, the colours and the easel design. A great idea to die cut lots of shapes in advance - must try and get myself organised!

Another fabulous card using those nesties...the whole design is simply, gorgeous and works so perfectly! Once again, lovely work Avril!
Hope you had a great weekend and you're absolutely right, it is hard to craft when it's such beautiful weather.
Love Emma xxx

Hi Avril

I am pleased you have cut lots of these dies out .. .. that means we will be seeing lots more of these gorgeous makes.

Love that corset very much and your sentiment.

You made me smile thinking about you with the cuttlebug on your knee whilst watching TV.

Love Jules xx

Avril, this is lovely! Gorgeous embossing and all the white with just the hint of color is so eye-catching! I did want to let you know that you linked it to the wrong Sassy Studios Challenge, though (the Christmas one instead of under the Dare To Be Sassy Thursday one). Thanks for playing along!

Wow, this die looks great as an easel, Avril, I would never have thought of that. I have this one but rarely use it, you've given me new inspiration for it now.
I love the embossed circle on the base too, it looks like lacy fabric to match your corset!!
Just lovely.
hugs Lisax
