Cocktail Shows on Hochanda today

Hi Bloggers.

I have shows on Hochanda today at 8am, 12noon and 3pm. I hope you can join me.

Here's a card from today's shows -

For the background, I cut one of the dies from the Ecliptic Edger Die Set into a piece of Coconut White Card several times. I used this as a mask and misted through it onto another piece of Coconut White Card using Golden Mint and Scarlet Mist CS Misters, I put my mask aside to use on another project.
I made a frame out of Coconut White Card using the Double Stitched Rectangles Die Set and added it to my background using CE Mounting Cushion.  I matted onto Coconut White, then Black and another piece of Coconut White Card.

I managed to cut the 'liquid' die from the 3D Cosmopolitan Glass Die out of the waste from my background card. I cut the rest of the cocktail glass out of Coconut White Card and Heat Emboss Acetate. I cut the umbrella out of more waste background card and the straw out of Coconut White Card - both from the Cocktail Glasses Die Set. I added CS Glue around the rim of the glass and CS Crystal Chips Glitter Jewels.

I added a strawberry cut from Ruby and Brunswick Green Card (from 3D Cosmopolitan Cocktail Die Set).

I stamped the sentiment from the Cheers to You Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Onyx Black Versafine. I cut it out using die #2 from the Portuguese Background Die Set.

I'll show you how to put the Cocktail Glass die together during at least one of my shows today. You can also watch Sue put one together in this YouTube video -

  13. These must have sold out quickly as by the time I watched you on Hochanda this AM (here), the products weren't even showing. Very snazzy cards, Julia even if you don't imbibe. Successful show. I love the stamps.
