One Day Special on Hochanda starts this evening

Hi Bloggers.

I have a One Day Special on Hochanda this evening starting at 8pm and continuing tomorrow at 9am, 12noon, 4pm and 7pm. Hope you can join me.

Here's today's card and hopefully a demo -

I've only used Coconut White Card for this card.

I cut a frame out of using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares Set B.

I cut the Couture Creations Crystal Aroma Die out of the centre of a piece of card. I embossed the 'waste' by running it through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine with the Couture Creations Large Circles Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design.

On another piece of card, I pounced Lavender Lace, Clear Day and Pretty in Pink Colour Clouds using Smoothies. I stacked the 2 frames up on top of the background and then inserted the Crystal Aroma Die Cut.

I used the same method with the Colour Clouds to colour another piece of card and then cut the Couture Creations Script Thanks Die. I cut one of Sue's Pierced Flags and added the Thanks die cut.

I cut the Couture Creations Falling Blossoms Die Set twice and using 2 sets of flowers the same size. I coloured them using the Colour Clouds then shaped them and added an 8mm White Pearl. I cut the smaller die from the Couture Creations Mercanto Flourish Die Set. I cut it down and added it either side of the flower.

I assembled the card as shown using the colour clouds to colour one of my mats.

I have a few of the items on the ODS in stock on my website. I'm offering 10% discount on them till midnight tomorrow night. You can find them here. Discount is applied at checkout.

Hope to see you later.

Thanks for stopping by.
