Sunday Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

Today I have a sneak peek from the Justrite One day Special that I'm launching on Hochanda at 8pm on Tuesday night.

I've decided to share a simple two-fer first featuring the Justrite A2 Butterfly Garden Die Set.

I've used the largest 2 dies in the set and cut them together out of Coconut White Card. I added Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Gold Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder. I repeated the process to double emboss. I cut the largest die from the set out of Coconut White Card and glued the embossed decorative frame. I made a card blank out of Coconut White Card uing the same die.

I cut the circular die in the same set out of Coconut White Card.

I cut the butterfly circle from the same set out of Coconut White Card and double embossed.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Meadow Circles Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Four in a Square Dies.

Here's your second card -

Here, I've used Icicle Pearl Card and Black Card. All the dies used are the same as before with the addition of the butterflies (from the same set) on top of the knot of the Black Satin Ribbon bow.

I'm off to run a workshop locally today - Mixed Media and MDF. It's going to be fun!

Thanks for stopping by.

Free card with all website orders (ask for one in the comments box at checkout).

  15. Must admit I wondered about the first one when I saw it first on your Facebook page, then I came here to read the techniques and understood how you get the gorgeous gold appearance. Both cards are gorgeous so really can't chose between them

    Hope you enjoyed today's session in YG. Mixed media is not my thing else I would have joined you. Next time hopefully.

  21. Hi Julia, two very lovely cards.
    Hope you had a fun and messy day crafting :-)

  22. julia i love both of thesze cards and it is amazing how different they look in different colours even though they are the same die.
    I really couldn't choose between the two as i love them both equally.

  23. Lovely background Julia. You produce gorgeous effects.

  24. Hi Julia,
    Both great cards but love the black and white one.
