More Weekend Wow Shows today

Hi Bloggers.

I have another couple of shows on Hochanda today at 11am and 3pm. Hope you can join me.

Here's today's card which I demoed in the 10am show yesterday. You can still watch on it on catch up if you wish at

For the background, I spread some CS Clear Texture Paste through the All Stirred Up Mask onto Coconut White Card. I removed the mask and added CS Luna Silver Mica Flakes and put aside to dry.

I made a frame using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares and Double Pierced Squares Set B and added it to my background once it was dry using 3d Foam Tape.

I stamped the main image from the Justrite Multi-Step Don't Forget Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed using Phill Martin's CS Platinum Embossing Powder. I removed the excess mica using a dry wet wipe. I cut out using the largest die in the Justrite Vintage Labels Eleven Dies - the whole image doesn't fit but that's not a problem.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, again using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with Phill's Platinum Powder. I cut it out using a die from the Justrite A2 Card Front Basics Dies.

I cut the largest die from the Justrite Hello Decorative Oval Frames Dies out of Coconut White Card twice. I pressed one of them into my Clear Perfect Medium Pad, added Phill's Platinum Powder and heat set.  I added more ink and more powder. Then, when I heat set this time, I also sprinkled on some CS Luna Silver Mica Flakes which became embedded into the embossing Powder.

With the other Hello die cut, I cut it in half, trimmed the split pointy bit off (see the demo) and glued to pieces to the back of the embossed die cut, off setting them slightly to form a shadow.

I embellished a pair of Sue Wilson's Laurel Leaves in the same way.

I made a scrunched up flower using 6 cuts of the smallest scalloped die in the Hello set ( I demoed this).

I assembled the card as shown adding some CS Polar White Twinkles around the edges of the image and the sentiment and adding some to the edges of the petals of the flower.

I ordered more stock yesterday including the new background stamps. You can find them and other products I have in stock from the shows on my website here.
