One Day Special Shows on Hochanda today

Hi Bloggers.

I'm launching a new One Day Special on Hochanda today at 6pm (please note new time) with some more Sue Wilson Dies from the April release. There's another show at 8pm today (not on Freeview but available on Sky, Freesat and online).

Here's today's card -

I started by dusting a piece of Coconut White Card with ans Anti-Static Pad. I stamped the CE Black Orchid Stamp to Die For using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Denim Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder. I cut it out using die #4 from Sue's Bali Die Set. I stamped the sentiment from the CE Petite Lavish Sentiments Stamp Set using Cobalt Archival. I cut it out using die #2 from Sue's Indonesian Background Die Set. I cut a mat out of Midnight Blue Pearl Card using die #2 from Sue's Sumatra Die Set.

I cut die #3 and #5 together from Sue's Sumatra Die Set out of Midnight Blue Pearl Card and die #4 from the same set out of Silver Mirror Card. I glued the Mirror Die Cut behind the Midnight Blue one and then cut in half. I added it to the back of my stamped piece.

I cut die #7 from Sue's Double Pierced Squares Set B out of Coconut White Card and out of Silver Mirror Card. I cut die #5 from Sue's Indondesian Background out of the Coconut White piece. I glued this to the Silver Mirror piece. I matted onto Midnight Blue Card (with a wide border), then Silver Mirror and then Coconut White. I added my topper section and a 5mm White Pearl to each corner.

Many thanks to Sandra, Tina and Lorna for sending samples in for the shows. Their cards are on view in the Gallery Section of this blog and on my Julia Watts Crafts Facebook Page.
