One Day Special on Hochanda this evening

Hi Bloggers.

I'm launching a Spellbinders One Day Special on Hochanda this evening at 8pm with more shows tomorrow at 9am, 12noon, 4pm and 7pm. Hope you can join me.

Here's today's card -

This is a very simple card to construct.

I've used :

Spellbinders Savoy Labels S4-587
Spellbinders Savoy Decorative Elements S4-589
Spellbinders Platinum Machine
Creative Expressions Petite Lavish Sentiments
Watering Can Archival
Cosmic Shimmer Frosty Jade Colour Cloud
That Special Touch - A Touch of Class
Self Adhesive Pearls - White 3mm & 5mm
Card - Coconut White & Aqua
Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

For the background, I cut a piece of Coconut White Card to 5 3/4" Square and ran it through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine using the emboss sandwich. Leaving the mask in place I pounced Frosty Jade Colour Cloud through the design using a Smoothie.

I stamped the sentiment from the Petite Lavish Sentiments stamp set onto Aqua Card using Watering Can Archival. I cut it out using the smallest die in the Savoy Decorative Elements Die Set and inked through the die with Frosty Jade. I cut the other 2 dies in the same set out of Aqua Card and inked through the dies with Frosty Jade.

I cut dies #2 and #4 (where #1 is the smallest) in the Savoy Labels Die Set out of Coconut White Card and inked through the dies with Frosty Jade. Then I stacked all the die cuts on top of each other as shown using 3d Foam. I love how the shape fits neatly into the frame created by the mask - very neat and tidy!

I completed the card by adding a few White Pearls and piercing around the edges.

I have added a section of my website containing items from the ODS that I have in stock. You can find them here. There's 10% discount on them till midnight tomorrow night.

John Lockwood's ODS continues today and there's 10% discount on the items I have from his show till midnight tonight. You can find them here.

See you at 8pm!

Thanks for stopping by.
