If the show fits...

Happy Thursday,

Join me on Hochanda today at 9am, 12pm, 4pm and last chance at 7pm to see more from the shadow box collection of dies! Thanx for all the votes yesterday on which card to demo the voting was pretty split so I managed to get both cards in the first hour I will hopefully go through more demonstrations today.

Todays card is another demo from the shows that I will hopefully take you all through ( those that are able to tune in) at 12pm today this card using the Retail Therapy accessory set.  A perfect card for ladies of all ages.

I love the way that the nail polish and lipstick come out in this die I used glossy accents to add shine to the products .

I especially like the large shoe which is great for more complex cards like this one or can be used for clean and simple cards.

Here i Tied the shoe with some diamond sprinkles and black gloss card to make a ruby slipper!

I thought as I have been going for a twofer these this week I would add this card made using the same set.

This is based on a video card made by Sue Wilson for the Creative Expressions you tube channel so click over there to see how this one was made.



  1. Morning John, great cards and a fabulous set of dies very useful as I have seven granddaughters so there is so many ways to use them.
