Pacific in Blue...

Happy Monday,

I'm back on Hochanda today at 9am, 12pm, 4pm and last chance at 7pm with the stunning Pacific Ocean collection from Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions.  Today I thought I would share another sample from today's shows.  This is a demo card for today so tune in to see how this was / is made!








This card is made simply using the linear elegance edger die and the Bora Bora die set form the pacific ocean collection along with the starflowers.  I cut the detail form the edger die four times across a piece of vanilla pearl card and backed this with periwinkle.  Next I edged a piece of periwinkle with one of the edges that come with the die.  Next I matted this onto more of the vanilla this time the edges were cut with the other edge in the set.  a few layers of vanilla and periwinkle and the main card was finished.

The main element is cut with the Bora Bora die using dies 1, 2 and 3 for the blue and dies 1 and 3 for the vanilla background.  I then cut the punched circles die along with the edges in vanilla and backed it in blue rotating it to adhere this to the front.


Finally I cut the starflower in blue and vanilla in all four sizes, added vanilla PVA glue dots and made up the flowers as shown.  I added these with a bow around the main element and finished.

Enjoy...

  30. Hi John. I didn't get a chance to watch the shows so will have to see them later on catch-up. I love the way you have used the edger dies to create the background and also what a good idea to add glue dots to the flowers to make them look even more dimensional.

  36. Sorry for my late comment, having a horrendous time at the moment but seeing your cards has cheered me up.
    This is absolutely stunning and looks like so much thought and hard work have gone into it.
