Spellbinders Wedding Collection One Day Special Continues Today

Hi Bloggers.

I have more shows on Hochanda today at 9am, 12noon, 4pm and 7pm. Hope you can join me. I have added photos of the samples to the Gallery section of this blog (access via the top menu) and to my Julia Watts Crafts Facebook Page.

My card went on the Spellbinders Blog last night - you can see it here. It would be lovely if you could leave a comment. The card features the Spellbinders Swirl Stripe Panel that is included in todays shows together with some dies from the last One Day Special.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card using the Creative Expressions Provencal lace Embossing Folder.

I cut the largest die in the Spellbinders Ornamental Crest Die Set out of Custard Card. I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Grand Wedding Wishes Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Bright Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the middle die in the same die set. This die cuts out the sentiment and gives you a gorgeous frame with deboss detail. I rubbed Enchanted Gold Gilding Wax over the debossed frame. Once dry, I buffed it up using a dry wet wipe.

I cut the little motif die from the Ornamental Crest Die Set out of Custard Card twice. I added CS Flake & Glitter Glue Highlighter to the die cuts and then added CS Frosty Dawn Sparkle Diamond Frost. I added these to my sentiment panel as shown.

I threaded some Craft Consortium Ivory Satin Ribbon through the large die cut and wrapped it around the back of my background. I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Ivory Ribbon and added a Craft Consortium Circle Pearl Diamante.

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

I did threaten to make some more gift boxes made using the Spellbinders Favorably Simple Gift Box Die Set and I have! I hope you watched Becca's video that I added to yesterday's blog - really good to see.
I know this one is hard to see - I've stamped the front and back panels with some of the stamps from the Heartfelt Creations Feather Grass Flourish Stamp Set stamped onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Copper Bronze Lustre Embossing Powder.
This one is made using Phill Martin's Frosty Christmas Holly Paper Pad. Wouldn't it be cool to give pressies in these or hang some on your tree?
 This final one is inspired by the video by Becca that I shared yesterday. Made with Custard Card, I've embossed through the die on the front and back with the Spellbinders Fancy Flourish Grand Impressabilities. I've wrapped the Spellbinders Swirling Grace around it (as in Becca's video) cut from Dark Grey Card. I've cut the flowers using Spellbinders Crossing Crecent Die Set and added a Craft Consortium Ivory Resin Flower.

I've added some of the Hook & Loop Discs, which you can use to fasten the flap on the boxes, to my website here. I've split them down into 10 pairs so you don't end up buying more than you want! Just £1 per pack.

Just a reminder, I've set up a category on my website with products I have in stock from the One Day Special. You can find them here. There's 10% discount on them till midnight tonight.

Stock of Leonie's masks did arrive yesterday - yay! You'll find them here. I think Leonie's co-ordinating stamps should be here on Friday. I'm planning on using the masks and stamps in the Stamping Masterclass that I'm running on Saturday June 11th - you can book a place here.

See you at 9am!

Thanks for stopping by.

    You are an inspiration to us all - wish they had given you a better counter though! I am vertically challenged like you and it can't be easy on those high counters. Great shows!

  10. Good morning Julia the card and the gift bags are all gorgeous. Those are some amazing dies that you have used. Enjoy your shows today and have a safe journey home. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  11. Very pretty Can I ask a huge favour, when you photograph bags etc that you photograph it alongside something we'd all recognise To be able to judge the size (I haven't seen Becca's video yet, that might help) Totally forgot the shows So I will watch on catch-up, that will help too I expect

  12. What great samples, Julia. Love the bags.
