One Day Special continues on Hochanda today

Hi Bloggers.

I have One Day Special Shows on Hochanda today at 9am, 12noon, 4pm and 7pm. Hope you can join me.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card using the Creative Expressions Climbing Vines Embossing Folder.

For the panels, I stamped one of the border stamps from the Justrite Confetti Trio Background onto Coconut White Card 3 times using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Silver Shine Detail  Embossing Powder. I matted the panels onto Silver Shine Pearl Card and added them to my background using Mounting Cushion.

I stamped the sentiment from Phill Martin's Butterfly Elegance Sentiments onto Coconut White using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with Silver Shine Detail Powder. I cut it out using die #2 from Sue Wilson's Maldives Die Set. I cut dies #3 and #4 from the set together out of Silver Shine Card and die #4 out of Coconut White Card.

I stamped a couple of the stamps from the Stamps to Die For Autumn Leaf Bouquet using Clear Perfect Medium. I embossed some of them with CS Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder and some with CS Silverlight Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder. I made a template with the waste from die cutting the 2 smallest solid leaf dies from Sue's Autumn Leaf Trio Die Set and used it to cut out my stamped images.

I cut all 4 of the flower dies from Sue's Cape Daisy Die Set out of Coconut White Card. I used a Perfect Medium Pen to colour in the tips of the petals, added CS Silver Shine Powder and heat set. I constructed my flower, added a centre cut from Silver Shine Card and an 8mm White Pearl.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm White Pearls to the corners and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat

I have loaded pics of the samples from the One Day Special into the Gallery section of this blog and onto my Julia Watts Crafts Facebook Page.

Thanks for stopping by.
