Spellbinders Sale One Day Special on Hochanda Tonight

Hi Bloggers.

Tonight, at 8pm, I'm launching a One Day Special with some gorgeous Spellbinders dies at great prices. Hope you can join me.

I cut the border die from the Spellbinders Venetian Accents out of Bright White Card 6 times. I added a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet to a sheet of Custard Card. I peeled away a section of the backing sheet and added one of the border die cuts. I peeled away more of the backing and added another border. I continued this until all 6 borders were secured. I used the backing sheet to make sure all the delicate areas of the die cuts were secured to the adhesive. I added CS Frosty Dawn Diamond Frost to the remaining adhesive.

I cut the #1 die and the #3 in the Spellbinders Floral Burst die set out of a remaining piece of Custard Card with adhesive on it. I removed the backing sheet and added Frosty Dawn Diamond Frost. I folded and tucked both die cuts. I cut the #2 and #3 dies from the Floral Burst die set out of Bright White Card. I folded and tucked them and then stacked all the die cuts, offsetting the two #3 die cuts as shown.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Meadow Circles Stamp Set onto Bright White Card using Watering Can Archival. I cut it out using a die from the Venetian Accents Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm White Pearls, 8mm White Pearls and a couple of White Mini Pearl Swirls and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

I'm not stocking any of the Spellbinders dies on the shows as I just can't match the prices on Hochanda but I'm offering 10% off other products I have in stock on website. You can find them here. Offer applies till midnight tomorrow or while stocks last. Discount will be applied at checkout.

I am still not caught up with all my website orders - I'm really sorry. I will make sure ALL the backlog is cleared by Thursday at the latest. Many apologies - regular customers will know that I usually try to get orders out quickly.

  26. Hello Julia.

    Lovely Card, I love yellow. I really like the Venetian Border die and the background you have made with it. Thanks for sharing.

    Congratulations Marion Scott.

    I finally managed to catchup with your recent shows and really enjoyed your last show with Leonie and your giggling about your hiccup with stamping. I am sure everyone like myself, understands about orders taking longer than your usual very fast delivery.

    Best wishes
