I hope those of you who were able to catch Sue's shows on Hochanda at the weekend enjoyed them! I thought this week I would show some of the cards I have made using the dies that were the One Day Special. I thought I would strait with my favourite flower stamps to die for ( I have been waiting , ever since I drew these for Sue, for these too come out so that I can use them!)
I stared this card by stamping the three largest stamps in the set using CS flake and Glitter glue, once it had gone off ( I always leave this glue at least 5 - 10 minutes to key to the card) I added bronze polished silk glitter which gives a stamped image that literally glitters ( its better in real life) I then cut these out with the matching dies from the set , shaped them and placed a PVA pearl in the centre using Phill Martin's CS Frosted Mink.
Next I cut an aperture in a square of coconut white foundation card using die number 2 and three from the Grace Frames and Tags set. I then cut the bottom of the square using the filigree section and one of the cutting edges form the Corvus Gemini die set. P I placed this over a piece of card covered in double sided adhesive sheet.
I then covered the aperture in rose copper polished silk glitter. I repeated this again with the bronze and again with the rose copper to make the Skirt on the card of the different colours and layers. I added More of the frosted mink PVA on the layers and foam mounted all the layers together.
Next I cut the smallest of the pierced flags set. mounted it onto a scrap of Phill Martin's frosted Mink paper pack and stamped the sentiment form my Pierced flags clear stamp set for CE. I mounted this under the aperture and let the flag flow over the top.
Long instructions but I hope you got the gist in case you want to make something similar.
