Spellbinders One Day Special on Hochanda this evening

Hi Bloggers.

I'm launching a One Day Special on Hochanda this evening at 8pm with part 2 of Becca Feeken's Wedding Collection from Spellbinders. For those of you on Freeview who stay up late or have the ability to record, the launch show will be shown at midnight tonight. Otherwise, you can view online at Sky viewers can watch anytime, unless you're like me where my sky box just glitches constantly on the shopping channels!

On to today's card -

I made a similar one to this for the last One Day Special using the Spellbinders Quatrafoil Panel. This one is smaller as the Spellbinders Swirl Stripe Panel is a smaller die. This die can be easily extended to form a large background as you will see in some of the other samples.

So, I cut the inner die only form the Swirl Stripe Panel die set out of Coconut White Card, positioning it towards the left hand side.

I stamped the sentiment from the Heartfelt Creations Feather Grass Flourish Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Copper Bronze Lustre Embossing Powder. I wiped away the excess using a dry wet wipe. This stamp is very forgiving as it doesn't matter if you don't stamp it perfectly straight. I wasn't able to get any of these stamps for my website as there weren't many left - don't say I didn't warn you! lol! I added a little CS Flake & Glitter Glue Highlighter to the grass on the sentiment and added CS Frosty Dawn Diamond Frost.

I matted onto Peach Card. I wrapped a piece of Craft Consortium Peach Ribbon around and added a Craft Consortium Heart Buckle Charm.

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

I thought I'd also share a few bags I've made using the Spellbinders Favourably Simple Gift Box Die Set. These are easy to make. I'll try and do one in the launch show so that if you're on Freeview you can catch it in the repeat at midnight.

With Peach Card, CE Wedding Cake Singles, Clear Perfect Medium, CS Copper Bronze Lustre Embossing Powder, Craft Consortium Peach Satin Ribbon and Pearl & Diamante Heart Charm

With Craft Consortium Wild Rose 12 x 12 Paper

With CS Silver Mica Spray Mist, Spellbinders Grand Impressabilities Flower Delight, Spellbinders Bow Helpers & Closures, Craft Consortium Adhesive Pearl Heart Chain, Dark Grey Card
I may have more to show, they're quite addictive! I've just spotted a video tutorial on the Spellbinders Blog by Becca Feeken where she makes a gorgeous gift bag using this die set - puts mine to shame!

My next post on the Spellbinders Blog should go live today, around 1pm I think.

I've set up a category on my website with products I have on my website from the shows. You can find them here. There's 10% discount on them till midnight tomorrow night.

Leonie Pujol has a bunch of Creative Expressions products on her show 2pm till 4pm today. I've set up a category with products on her show on my website here. There 10% discount on those products till midnight tonight.

Stock of Leonie's masks should arrive today. You'll find them here when I've loaded the stock on. Her stamps are due in either later this week or early next week. Will keep you posted.

Hope to see you later!
