Fire and Ice butterflies...

Happy Wednesday,

I hope you all enjoyed last nights show those of you who managed to tune in and watch how this card was made  Read below for 2 chances to win this card!   I am back on today at 9am, 12pm, 4pm and last chance at 7pm,  I will be carrying on with demos form the fantastic one day special bundle of Sue Wilsons die range,

Todays card is the demo card I made last last night using Sue Wilson's Fire and Ice technique with floating panels of butterfly mini striplet.

heres a few more close up shots...







I do think that the sentiment looks really nice in the silver dream gilding flakes and saves a lot of time in stamping and embossing to get the same look.

There are 8 more demos to come on todays shows, it would be great if you can tune in for a few of them.


If you would like to win this card there are 2 chances Im giving this version away here on my blog simply leave a comment below and I will randomly select a winner on Thursday.  If you want another chance ti win simply leave a comment join the win this card post on the Hochanda blog HERE

  5. Morning John, oh I did enjoy last nights show, I was glued to it, loved the fire and ice technique and the way you did the butterflies, loved it, I really did. You also made me laugh with the flakes going everywhere, it must have felt like it was snowing in the studio, haha, good tip about using the A4 box though, I will try this one. After the show finished I spent the next hour cutting out 2 sets of the striplet and I am going to see if I can make something like it, won't be as good as yours though. Like everyone else I would love to win this one, so good luck all.

    I am off to craft club this morning so will miss the first show but will be back at 12 so will catch the rest of them, looking forward to it.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  31. Beautiful card using a great technique. Enjoyed the demo and appreciated the tip about using an anti static bag on a box to store the gilding flakes in; I will have to do mine retrospectively. Mind I noticed that you still got covered - however, is there anyone who uses the flakes who ends up clear of even a stray few!!!!!!!!!

  32. Eh up John
    An opulent and glam card and your demo was superb (I'm guessing you had to be vaccumed after the show to get the gilding flakes off you lol!)

  44. Hi John,
    I really loved the show and learned so much! I have always wanted to do fire and ice so I wrote the step by step instructions down. I also loved the tips on using the colour cloud inks. They are the new inks for me! I started using them last week and I cant believe how versatile they are. Thank you so much for your inspiration!
