One Day Special Shows on Hochanda today

Hi Bloggers.

I have more One Day Special Shows on Hochanda today at 9am, 12nnon, 4pm and 7pm. I hope you can join me. I will try to show you as many products and techniques as I can throughout the day.

Here's today's card -

I've finally been allowed to have one of Sue Wilson's Weaving Dies on a show - I love these dies. I have just the Classic Weaving Die on the show - if you team this up with the Striped Weaving Die, there are so many different weaves you can do. You can see all the cards I've blogged using the Weaving Dies here.

Back to today's card. I made my own backgrounds first. I stamped 4 of the flower head stamps from the Justrite Floral Silhouettes One Stamp Set onto Milk Card using the 4 Colour Clouds that I had on my last One Day Special - Sun-Lit Cedar, Natural Rosewood, Decadent Bamboo and Decadent Oak applying the ink to the stamps using Smoothies.

For my second background piece, I inked up the Justrite Text Background Stamp with the same 4 Colour Clouds and stamped onto Milk Card.

I cut Sue's Classic Weaving Die from both of my backgrounds and wove them together.

I made a frame out of Milk Card using Sue's Double Pierced Rectangles and Double Pierced Rectangles Set B. I added it to my woven background using 3D Foam Tape.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Doodled Birds Stamp Set onto Milk Card using Sepia Archival. I cut it out using Sue's Double Pierced Flags and cut a mat out of Sand Card using the next sized die in the set.

I made another background piece with the Floral Silhouettes flower heads. I cut the largest complete flower from Sue's Striped Nasturtium Die Set from it twice. I cut the corresponding size of open flower from the same set out of Milk Card. I cut some stamens from Sand Card using Sue's Orange Blossom Complete Petals and added then to the centre of my flower and then added a Cream 5mm Pearl.

I cut a pair of leaves from Sand Card using Sue's Trailing Ivy Die Set. There are no flower or leaf dies on this One Day Special set of shows, sorry I forgot to add some! The Nasturtiums are from Sue's November release and are on Sue's One Day Special on Saturday. The Trailing Ivy Die Set is on my One Day Special on 22nd December.

I completed my card with some Milk and Sand mats and an 8mm Cream Pearl in each corner of my frame.

  10. Morning Julia, I have just finished watching the repeat of your last night's Launch show, it was fabulous. I am so pleased that you have used the weaving dies, I really love them (and to be honest I have forgotten about them), I will need to get them out again because the effect is stunning. I loved your demo's and your samples were stunning. I was drooling over the weaving card where you used gilding flakes before cutting the weaving die, the card was positively stunning. This card is really beautiful. I can't wait to see your demo's today.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
