One Day Special Shows continue on Hochanda today

Hi Bloggers.

One Day Special shows continue on Hochanda today at 9am, 12noon, 4pm and 7pm. Hope you're loving this Art Deco range from Spellbinders as much as I do.

I have a twofer for you today - simply showing how the Fairmont ODS dies work just by stacking them up.

In this first one, I've used Milk and Coconut White Card with the Spellbinders Fairmont Labels and the Spellbinders Fairmont Decorative Accents. The background is embossed using the Creative Expressions Fine Finials Embossing Folder. The sentiment is from the Creative Expressions Petite Lavish Sentiments Stamp Set, stamped onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS White Gold Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder.

I've used the smallest and the middle die in the Decorative Accents set, cutting them together out of Milk Card (I cut the larger of the 2 first then slotted the smaller inside and cut again - easier to cut this way). This gave me a pretty frame. I used little pieces of 3D Foam to mount this onto my Coconut White Fairmont Label then I added the pretty Decorative Fairmont die cut inside it securing with CS Glue. I added my sentiment using 3D Foam. I popped all this on top of the largest Fairmont Decorative Accents die cut and then onto my background.

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

Here's the second card - more dramatic in Black and Coconut White and this time using the Spellbinders Fairmont Labels with the Spellbinders Fairmont Decorative Elements.

This is simply just stacking the die cuts up, alternating between the Fairmont Labels and the Fairmont Decorative Accents. The Labels are all cut from Coconut White Card and the Decorative Accents are all cut from Black Card. This time the background is embossed using the Creative Expressions Art Deco Fanfare Embossing Folder. The sentiment is once again from the Creative Expressions Petite Lavish Sentiments Stamp Set but this time stamped using Jet Black Archival. I've added some 8mm Black Pearls to the corners.

2 easy cards to make. Across the 3 die sets, there's lots of variations.
