Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

Today I have a sneak peek from my Justrite One Day Special which starts tomorrow night at 8pm on Hochanda.

For the background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card using the Couture Creations Ooh La La Embossing Folder.

I stamped the image from the Justrite Large Oval Celebration Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Black Detail Embossing Powder. I coloured in with CS Summer Garden Watercolour Set using a Water Brush. I cut it out using the middle sized oval cutting die from the Justrite Hope Oval Frames Die Set. I used the dies either side of that one to cut a frame out of Sky Blue Card.

I cut the largest die inthe same set out of Sky Blue Card and then the next 2 dies together out of Coconut White Card.

This all might make a bit more sense if I show you a picture of the die set so here you go -

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with Black Detail Powder. I cut it out using the smallest 2 ovals in the same die set (the smallest one gives a pierced detail and does not cut). I cut the next sized die out of Sky Blue Card.

I cut 2 pairs of corners using the Justrite A2 Card Front Basics Die Set out of Sky Blue Card (this die set is my favourite from the shows and I think it'll be the first sell out - more on that tomorrow).

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