Sunday Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

I have another sneak peek for you today from tomorrow's One Day Special on Hochanda launching at 6pm.

I started by popping a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of Coconut White Card. I removed the other piece of backing sheet and added CS Sunlight Speckle Gilding Flakes. I spread the flakes around the adhesive and removed the excess using a piece of Rubit Scrubit.

I cut the outer dies only from Sue Wilson's Vintage Perfume Bottles Die Set out of my Gilded Card. I dusted the remaining card with an Anti-Static Bag and cut Sue's Rose Spray Corners out twice (making 4 corners cut in total). This is a de-boss detailed die and adding the Anti-Static Bag makes it easier to release the Gilded Card from the die.

I cut Sue's Vintage Perfume Bottles out of Coconut White Card in their die pairs and glued them to their respective Gilded pieces.

For my background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card with the Creative Expressions Dotted Daisies PinPoint Embossing Folder and added CS Enchanted Gold Gilding Polish.

I matted onto another piece of Coconut White Card, then Silver Mirror Card and then another piece of Coconut White Card. I added CS Glue around the edges of my background and then sprinfkled CS Iced Crystals Glitter Jewels over.

Thanks for stopping by.
