Another day of demoing!

Happy Friday,

I hope some of you managed to cath the opening of Hochanda!  I know there were some teething problems but it seemed to get slicker as they day went on.  Hopefully the show at 8pm (which I have just got home from as I am writing this on Thursday night) went well for you all and that the website will be running for tomorrows shows!

I will announce the winners of the giveaways (don't forget I did offer the same prize on Facebook) later in the week when I get some time!

Todays card is another of the demos I have planned which I promise I won't rush!!

This card is made using one of the stamps to die for and one colour (turquoise Pool) of the new Cosmic Shimmer Colour Cloud blending Ink. The colour cloud has been used for all the shading and colouring on this card which is why I love it so much

Enjoy...

  1. Hi John,
    Lovely card - love the turquoise colour. Recorded your stint yesterday and you did well. Obviously on launch day one would expect a few hiccups but I bet not having a website lost orders! Keep going, will certainly record your gigs and watch when I've the time - that flower looks different from the normal folded, must watch how you did that.
    Best wishes, Rose

  2. Morning John, better late than never a gorgeous card and your debut on honchanda
    Was great your shows were good but poor Chloe her second show was not very good quality her first show with Lee was great but the second one was very grainy filming but it looks as if once the gremlins are ironed out it will be great.

  4. Hi John this is a gorgeous card. I love all the details. I know there were a few technical issues yesterday but it all seemed to go pretty well. I loved your demos you really got the chance to explain what you were doing. I will be watching again today I now have a television where I craft. Have a great day. Hugs Jackie

  6. Hi John
    Yesterday seemed to go okay. The sound seemed a bit hollow. But that might be because it was in somewhere new. I'm looking forward to recording today's show, as I'm busy today packing for our holidays. Today's card is lovely, especially the blending inks.

  7. Morning John, oh I am so enjoying your demos on Hochanda, have learnt so many new things already, brilliant. I have a couple of questions regarding embossing but I will save them until I can get to Ally Pally (hopefully if I can find someone to take me).

    Your on again in about 45 minutes so got to get my ironing done, first. Love this card and am waiting to see how you do it.

    Enjoy Friday, stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  8. Hi John,
    Loved the show I finally managed to watch the taped one this morning.
    This card is beautiful, not surprised you were late the amount of stuff you are doing lately.
    I'm going to watch your next show live, best make a cup of tea first. Only problem is they haven't got the sound very good today, if I turn the channel over to another now I'll get blasted out of the room it will be so loud. Lol. Hopefully the glitches will be sorted soon.
    Thanks
    Maggie

  18. Pretty card, John. The flowers are very different. I also tried to watch on the web from eastern US, but the constant buffering just didn't make it. I was disappointed that I didn't actually get to see it. I'm sure things will get better.

  20. Hi John, I watched the first three hours yesterday and then off and on during the day. It looks like it's going to be a good channel. Yes there are teething problems, but they can soon be sorted. Janice xxx http://createdbyjan.blogspot.com

  21. fab card today, I love the colour and have a feeling these new inks are going to be popular. I have one in the frosty aqua but have not tried it yet.
    I really enjoyed watching last nights show, you were brilliant but wish they would sort the sound out.

    Congratulations on some truly informative, utterly fantastic demo-your appearances have been the highlight of the new channel so far. Thanks for the effort and preparation you have obviously put in beforehand. Great card, as always, just about to enjoy my first live hour today- got them all on tape. You are inspirational, keep up the good work!xxx

  25. Hi John

    You're doing a great job. Brilliant demos, so nice to see them start to end! Being "first up" can't have beeb easy but you're an natural at this, you describe the process so well and share brilliant tips and advice. On top of designing... is there anything crafty you can't do?

    Hugs, T x

  27. Hi John,
    This is a truly stunning card, I watched the demo for this ( and recorded it). It was lovely to see you go through all of the techniques and I think the pace of the shows makes them more interesting and watchable.
    Thanks for all the inspiration and great crafty tips.

  28. Hi John, I didn't manage to catch you yesterday but I watched you today. Wow, thank you" for a wonderful demonstration today on how to do this card. I have noticed this technique being done a lot just recently on different blogs/magazines. With your demo, for some reason, it has stayed in my brain so keep up the good work! lol! I remember seeing you at Ally Pally with Julia at the beginning of the year and you saying that, people don't believe you when you tell them that you all get on and swop ideas with each other. That to me was wonderful to hear x It's a beautiful card and a great technique which I hope to do for Christmas cards x "Thank you" and you're a natural x

    You are very good at this , so clear and I am sure you helped the presenters by being so calm and relaxed.
