Monday Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

I have another sneak peek from the One Day Special I'm launching on Hochanda tomorrow night -

This is a really simple card where all the work is dome by the gorgeous Justrite Lavish Corners Background Stamp and Sue Wilson's St. Lucia Die Set.

I started by dusting a piece of Coconut White Card with an Anti-Static Bag. I stamped the Justrite Lavish Corners Background Stamp using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Silver Liight Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder. I trimmed it down. I cut a slightly larger piece of Coconut White Card. I ran Clear Perfect Medium around the edges, added Silver Light Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set. I added both pieces of card to a Coconut White Card Blank.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Ornate Happiness Squares Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using die #1 from Sue Wilson's St.Lucia Die Set. I cut die #3 out of Coconut White Card. I cut dies #2 and #3 together out of Coconut White Card. I added Clear Perfect Medium to this last die cut, then Silverlight Brillant Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set.

I cut die #4 from the set out of Coconut White Card and embossed with with Silverlight Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder. Finally, I cut die #5 out of Coconut White Card. I stacked up all the die cuts and my card was complete.

The winner of the card from Freebie Friday on 9th December is....................


Please email me at with your address and I'll pop your card in the post.

Before I sign off, I just wanted to warn you that most of my suppliers have increased their prices this month. I have stocked up as much as I can afford but as new stock arrives, I will have to increase my prices to compensate for the rise. Brands affected so far are Ranger, Spellbinders and Foundations Card. Many of you may be aware that Woodware are closing their business at the end of this month as they want to retire so Woodware branded products have a limited life - once they're gone, they're gone.

Thanks for stopping by.

Free card with all website orders (ask for one in the comments box at checkout).
