Floating fire and ice...

Happy Friday,

I thought you might like to see this card today from  yesterdays shows using the baubles paper cuts die.  I demoed this card on the 12pm show click HERE if you want to see how this card was made.

I used the fire and ice technique from Sue Wilson however rather than placing the adhesive around the edge of the die cut I have floated the die cut in a frame within the adhesive.



  1. Watched you making this and thought it looked lovely.

  2. Great card, really lovely.


  3. Good morning John this is a stunning card I love it. Have a great day today. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  4. Morning John, thank you so much for putting this card on your blog today, I saw you making it on Hochanda, and as I cannot tape anything from there I was wanting to have a record of how it is done, it is such a beautiful card and the technique used is stunning.

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

  5. Morning John,
    This card is stunning, i actually managed to watch your show when you did the demo for this rather than watch a recording of the show.
    Loved all your demos now trying to resist buying more stuff, I've already got loads I have ordered. I am being good, I haven't asked my Sister Rose yet if she's already ordered these dies but I'm guessing she has lol.
    Enjoy your day

  6. Morning John and crafters all,
    Stunning card !!!
    Just watching this being made as I had recorded all the shows.
    Thanks for the inspiration John.
    Love and crafty hugs.

    Hi John,
    striking card, I watched you demo it and am impressed. I love Sue's fire and ice technique but always forget the sequence of applying flakes/glitter until I see it again. Thanks for that John.
    Hugs, Rose

  11. Loved the shows John the cards were brill I loved the demo of the wrapping paper. Took me back years I'm almost eighty and I went to s craft gathering we had to do the patterns all by hand no stamps in those days 😀 thank you John love June Horrocks xxxxx

    Take care

  30. Hi John

    Stunning. I love snowflakes and silver together... Just works!

    Hugs, T x

  31. Eh up John
    Great card. I think you're making me lean towards silver for Christmas rather than automatically reaching for gold.
    May even use a bit more sparkle too.
    Have a great weekend.
