Tattered Lace Germany Launch Samples

A big update today with samples from the Tattered Lace Germany launch, the dies included the lavish blooms collection, the pansy, poppy, iris, lily of the valley and single fushia dies and also the Tattered Lace alpha and numbers.  I loved making the lavish bloom samples but wasn't as happy with the other flower dies.  I knew what I wanted to do but they didn't turn out the way I had envisioned them.  The sentiments are mostly in German so I apologise if I messed anything up.

Number Rainbow

Really had fun with this one, there are two sizes of TL numbers in the rainbow, however I can't find the link for the larger of the mini die set.

The spots were made using sponge daubers and the erasures on the end of a set of pencils I haven't used yet.

I cut two of each colour for the large 6 and layered them up so you could see the rainbow colours from the side, I think it's fun and gives some dimension to the card.

Tattered lace Glamor Heels

My life needs a bit more glamour at the moment and this card certainly has that lol!  The gorgeous Tattered Lace High Heel Glam is a personal favourite of mine.  Cut from black glitter card and blinged up with tiny rhinestones they look stunning and I wish I had a pair of my own, not that I could walk in them, but a girl can wish lol!

I didn't have a whole lot of black glitter card and I wanted a thin glittery border behind the flocked paper so I used a thin redline tape around the outside of the card front and liberally sprinkle on black glitter, to get a good covering a rubbed the glitter onto the tape to make sure it was stuck down well.

The beautiful flocked paper is some I bought a couple of years ago from Stampin' Up as it was retiring, I've been hoarding it and this is the first time I've cut into it, it took some doing, believe me!

I've used the Tattered Lace Westminster Collection to add accents and as a matt for the shoes with some silver mirri to add some more bling, which really sets off the black perfectly.

The stamp is embossed with Stampenous Disco Black embossing powder, which is my all time favourite embossing powder, it's fabulous for night skies and Halloween projects as well as adding a bit of sparkle to a sentiment.

I really love how this card came out, perfect for a girly get together or a BFF birthday or even a hen night invite.
