Winners and another Chance...


Happy Tuesday,

Below are the winners from the weekend however I found another Card from my Hochanda Shows that I have to give away so theres a bonus chance today!  If you want to win todays card simply comment below, I have decided to do a weekly giveaway whether that be a Card, MDF piece or a stamp set etc so every Tuesday from now on will be giveaway day!

Todays card is the demo card I didi on Hochanda to shows wonderful paper Grouting technique.  This is where you use a plastic card to grout the debased side of an embossed piece of card using sparkle texture paste.  I tied this with the outside die from the Canadian background (honestly I could keep using this die forever lol)

I added a flower made using the dandelion clocks die set and the maidenhair fern.  With the ferns I grouted these with texture paste as well so that they had a little shimmer on them to match the background.

The winners from the weekend are:

Thursday - Rachel Macfarlane
Friday - Ruth Jameson
Saturday - Barbara W
Sunday - Anne (till Lady)
Monday - Mrs B

Simply email me at Lockers@live.co.uk with your address and I will send the appropriate card to you, please mark your email with which day you won as I get seriously confused at times (typical bloke I know lol)

Enjoy...

  8. What a beautiful card and I have everything to try it out except the maidenhair fern. However that is easy to substitute. So glad I bought a pack of this card on Saturday, despite the fact I didn't need it.
