Something different Saturday...

Happy Saturday,

I thought it was time I revisited the something different as I have been showing  slew of paper crafting projects recently so how about some MDF?

This is a really simple item to make honest its just 2 shades of the Cosmic Shimmer metallic gilding polish.

I stared by covering an MDF shaker heart form CE with Heather and powder blue gilding polish.  I then simply stamped my Christmas rose clear stamp set around the top using the powder blue polish.  Next I stamped one of the christmas rose sentiments in the centre of the heart.

For the 'frosting' i added cosmic shimmer dies clear glue all around the piece and added iced snow which, when dry, is clear so adds the frosted look where you can still see the colour and stamping.

For the roses I covered a sheet of foundation card half in heather polish and half in fern green.  I stamped the roses and cut them out with the matching dies.  I cut the free card using the foliage die in the christmas rose set, embossed them and added enchanted gold gilding polish over the top to make the embossing shine.

I added gold microbeads in the centres of the flowers and arranged it all along the bottom.

something different that would hopefully  are a really different christmas present, all I've got to do now is work out who this should go to!



  1. Good morning John today's sample is beautiful xx

  2. Morning John, a fabulous project I am really liking the gilding polishes but thought they looked very dark in the pots so I got the silver but then I saw you do the DCWV villages no I think it was Lisa who done them and then this looks pastel so must get some more.

  10. Morning John,
    Wow I love this what a great idea.
    I love your rose stamp set and the die set also.
    I've been making pages for an album all week for my Brother & Sister in law, to put the photos in from their Golden wedding party. So far I've used almost a full pot of cosmic shimmer gilding flakes. Takes a lot gilding around the edge of 11 inch square papers. Thank goodness for double sided tape lol.
    I will share photos on Facebook when I have finished the album.
    Enjoy your day.

  11. I don't normally "do" this type of thing but I will make an exception for this, John. It is so pretty.

  22. Hi John. This project is so pretty - thank goodness for all the new cosmic shimmer products, I love them all.


  23. Hi John, Your creation today is beautiful. I have not done MDF projects, for MDF craft products are not available here where I live. But I certainly can visualize how your design today can be created in cardstock. I'm loving this Gilding Polish. It's so much fun to work with now that I can order it from Canada. By the way, I just wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed your Hochanda shows on catch-up. I also want to tell you that I appreciate all the effort you go through to have so many samples for us to see on Hochanda. Great job!

  24. Hello John,
    A really beautiful project and a lovely gift! If you are stuck just let me know! You can send it here! Lol!
    Love Myra
