I hope those of you who were able to caught Saturday and yesterdays shows on Hochanda It was fab to be able to share my favourite dies from Sue Wilson's designs for the end of last year with you all. I have to admit, as I'm sure you will all see over the coming weeks, I have a bit of a thing for the orange blossom flowers, leaves and matching stamps. The good news is, if you enjoyed the shows that is, that I am back on Hochanda a week today with the launch of my New Spring collection of paper pad and stamps. I thought therefore this week I would show you one of the samples or demo card I have prepped for the show every day. I do hope you will all forgive this indulgence its just Ive had so much fun with this collection!
Today started with y favourite colours the blue and more specifically the Chambray form the paper pad, although I have only used one of the papers for the diaries on this card it shows how the papers match with all of our existing collections of foundation card and cosmic shimmer products. I am one for making things match and if I can match to what I already have in my stash that just makes it better value!
The sentiment and the daisies around it are stamped using Phill Martin's frosted Sky colour cloud blending ink using my Daisy Trail elements stamps set with the centres made using the matching PVA dimensional glue. The background, using the spring trail background stamp, is stamped in the same colour cloud before the frames and tags are loaded on top.
The diaries, well it had to be daisies didn't it!, are made using the cornflower die designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions. This makes a perfect daisy as you get all the individual petals here I have cut them in the Chambray text dot paper form my new paper pad it does match as the text running through the dots ( you have to look closely but it adds a layer of texture) is the Daisy Daisy song so there is a tie in!
I will be demoing a version of this card next week so tune in for more details!
