Shows on Hochanda today

Hi Bloggers.

I have shows on Hochanda today at 11am, 2pm and 5pm. Hope you can join me. As I said yesterday, the shows are with a bunch of lovely Justrite Stamps at great prices. Do be sure to grab a bargain if you can.

I plan to show you lots of techniques rather than make completed cards so hit the record button!

Here's today's card which has quite a few technques in it -

With this one I started with the central panel. I stamped the sentiment and the frame from the Justrite Birthday Vintage Labels Four Stamp Set onto Milk Card using Cosmic Shimmer Flake & Gitter Glue applied with a piece of Cut n Dry Foam. I then added Ice Blue Cosmic Shimmer Polished Silk Glitter. When doing this, you do not need to scrub or wipe off the excess glitter - just tap it off. I used a couple of dies from the Justrite Vintage Labels Four Die Set to cut them out.

I went around the edges of the oval die cut with Phill Martin CS Decadent Teal Colour Cloud using a Smoothie.

I made myself an ink pad by misting a piece of Cut n Dry Foam with Aqua Breeze Cosmic Shimmer Ink Spray Mist. I used it to ink up the Justrite Dotted Fronds Background Stamp and stamped onto Milk Card. I cut it down to a panel and inked around the edges with Decadent Teal Colour Coud. I matted onto a piece of Black Card.

I popped a little more Aqua Breeze Ink Spray Mist onto my Craft Sheet and added a little Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent Mica Powder. I mixed this into the ink and added it to my Ink Pad. I used this to ink up the Justrite Cornflower Damask Background Stamp and stamped onto Milk Card. I trimmed it a little, edged with Decadent Teal Colour Cloud and matted it onto a piece of Black Card. Unfortunately, it's really hard to catch the gorgeous shimmer on camera.

For the main background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Art Deco Fanfare Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Decadent Teal Colour Cloud.

I popped some Aqua Breeze Ink Spray Mist onto my Craft Sheet and mixed it with a little Cosmic Shimmer Warm White Matt Chalk Paint. I used a little piece of Cut n Dry Foam to pick it up and 'ink' the Justrite Dotted Fronds Background Stamp and stamped onto Milk Card. I cut 2 sizes of Sue Wilson's Perfect Peony : Complete Petals Dies out twice and cut the corresponding Perfect Peony : Open Petals Dies out of Milk Card twice. I glued the Open Petal die cuts to the Closed Petal die cuts at the centre only, shaped them, stacked them up offsetting them and added a Small Black Circle Dazzler.
I cut some leaves out of Black Card using Sue's Laurel Leaves Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm Cream Pearls and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

I don't have many of the items that are on today's shows but you can see the items that I do have in stock on my website here.

Thanks for stopping by.
