Atlantic day 2...

Happy Wednesday,

Its day 2 of my Hochanda shows featuring the Atlantic Ocean collection of dies by Sue Wilson.  I thought I would share a couple more samples form the shows.

Today's first card features the Cape Verde die in Iris, Wisteria and coconut white.  I added spray of nasturtium dies cut in velum with the outline dies cut in wisteria foundation card.  I allow used the lace edged leaves and the rippled striplet to finish off the front.

Today's second  card features the Atlantic ocean background this time teamed with the laced heart.  I added the laced heart with brown satin ribbon using the matching treat cup to make a shakers card.

Tune in today at 9am, 12pm, 4pm and final call at 7pm to see how these and many more were made.



  1. Hi John
    Such beautiful cards, I'm just watching yesterday's repeat show on Hochanda before I get ready for work, and will have to watch today's shows on catch up.
    All the samples look amazing.

  5. Morning John, oh wow the samples are fabulous but the Hochanda show last night was brilliant, the cards you had made for the show were out of this world, you have certainly done Sue's dies and stamps proud, I bet she is so proud of you too. Got to tape today's shows as out at my craft group, thank goodness for catch up too.

    I must say that the samples of card other people had sent in are wonderful too.

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