Takeover shows continue today

Hi Bloggers.

Hope you're enjoying the Takeover Shows on Hochanda. I have 4 shows today at 10am, 1pm, 3pm and 6pm. There are certainly some amazing prices! Hope you can join me.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine with the Couture Creations Chiaro Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design.

I stamped the Justrite Fleur Twist Background onto Coconut White Card using Terra Cotta Adirondack Dye Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and then added a piece of CE Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet and then CS Iced Snow Glitter Jewels. I cut the background down into 3 panels and backed with Black Card.

I stamped the sentiment panel from the Justrite Friends Antique Labels One Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Terra Cotta Ink applied with a Smoothie (for a cleaner impression). I cut it out using Justrite Antique Labels One Dies. I cut the Couture Creations Christmas Seedling Die out of Black Card.

I cut the Couture Creations Holly Branch Die out of Black Card twice and added a Black Zipper Rose.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

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