One Day Special Win & Bonus...

Happy Wednesday,




I'm launching the One Day Special tonight at 8pm on Hochanda ( Freeview Channel 39, Sky 663 and online at www.hochanda.com) so I thought I would do a bonus post today and show 2 cards form tonight's shows let me know which one you prefer and I will demo it on the show!  Both Cards today are primarily made with just Bright White foundation card.


The first card is made  using Colour Cloud blending ink with a couple of different techniques that I will demo.  The rest of the card is made using the Australian background die and the stunning Maggie frames and tags dies ( got to be one of my favourites from this collection I just love the swirls and the dot details around the frame.  I also added a spray of the Sweetheart flowers and used the rose blooms embossing folder.

The second card is made using the Metallic Gilding polishes ( I will have the whole 12 on the show early warning these sold out in record time last time I had just 6 on!)  This card is again made using the same flowers and embossing folder 9 hows that for a variety of uses?!?) as well as bright white foundation card.

I have added a few more pictures so don't forget to tell me which card you prefer I will choose one comment at random and they will receive the demoed card!


See you at 8pm, Enjoy...

  1. John, both cards are stunning but for me the 2nd card does it. The gilding polishes are, in my opinion, amazing, (i cannot stop using them) and the gold and red combination makes for a regal, elegant card. Beautiful.

  2. Morning John, both cards are gorgeous, but I would choose the first one because of the summery feel to it, like the weather we just had and hoping it will come back xx

  10. Hi John. Two fantastic cards, it's amazing to see how you've made such different cards with the same basic ingredients - you're a craft chef! The second card gets my vote, it's just so striking. See you at 8! Sue XXX

  11. Love them both, but I'd like to see you make the second one as I have some metallic gilding polish and haven't dared to use it yet! Some tuition would be handy.

  12. Hi John,
    Thanks for these cards, it is amazing what can be done with inks and polish !!!!!
    Both are beautiful but no 2 gets my vote.

  13. Morning John. Couldn't get in yesterday ! 😣 just managed an early comment on Particraft and lost connection for most of the day, not a happy bunny. But yesterday's card is absolutely beautiful and I can't wait for your shows, and record your inspiration. I think that as we seem to have lost out Summer, the first card has my vote, it's cheerful, happy, and makes me smile, although the 2nd card has the WOW factor due to it being full of drama, the first card is full of summer and smiles.
    Have a lovely day xx

    I love the first card which is so pretty, and it will be great to see the techniques you mention. I hope you get to demo with the gilding polish before it sells out, I've got a pot but am a bit unsure about using it.
