Wednesday Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

I thought I would share a sneak peek from the Justrite Weekend WOW that I'll be launching on Hochanda on Friday.

For the background, I dusted a piece of Coconut White Card with my Anti Static Bag and then spread some CS Clear Texture Paste through the Wavy Mask. I removed the mask and added CS White Gold Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder. I heat set it using a low speed Heat Tool (I find this best as the glitter in the powder seems to stay in place better). I will never tire of the way the texture paste crackles as you do this.

I do like to frame my mask backgrounds so I made a frame out of Coconut White Card using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares and Double Pierced Squares Set B. I added it to my background using 3D Foam and trimmed away the excess.

For the focal point, I used Justrite Hello Decorative Oval Frame Dies and Justrite Vintage Labels Eleven Dies. I cut the largest die and the 'Hello' from the Hello Decorative Oval Frame Dies out of  Antique Gold Pearl Card. I cut a couple of the dies from the Vintage Labels Eleven Dies out out Coconut White Card. I also cut one of the scalloped edged dies from the Hello set out of Coconut White Card.

I pressed the largest Vintage Labels Eleven Die Cut into Clear Perfect Medium, added CS White Gold Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set. I repeated this process a second time. I then pressed the scalloped edged die cut into Clear Perfect Medium, added Phill Martin CS Old Gold Embossing Powder and heat set. I repeated this process a second time. I stacked all the layers on top of each other using Creative Expressions Mounting Cushion and added the 'Hello' using CS Glue in a Fine Tip Glue Applicator Bottle.

I made a scrunched up flower out of Coconut White Card by cutting the 2 smallest dies in the Vintage Labels Eleven Die Set (hopefully, I'll get chance to demo this). I added a couple of leaves cut from Sue's Laced Edged Leaves Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm White Pearls and adding an Antique Gold Pearl and and a Coconut White Mat.

Thanks for stopping by.
