Welcome to the Atlantic...

Happy Monday,

I am back on your screens on Hochanda tomorrow night at 8pm then through the day on Wednesday with the Atlantic ocean collection by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions.  I thought It was time I shared a few of the samples I made for the shows.

Today's card is one I made at my demo day at Samuel Taylor's in Brighouse on Saturday, well I stared it I added the extra layers and the bow when I got home I just had to finish this card!

I stared by cursing the detail and next square die from the Atlantic ocean background die into bright white foundation card.,  Next I cut a panel of primrose to match and embossed it with the die before adding it to the back of the die cut.  Next I added a panel in the centre made by repeating the rippled striplet die cut up and set onto more of the primrose.

I then cut the spring foliage die twice in white and gently kissed the die cut with silver chrome glitter kiss.  I then cut both of the styles of flowers that come with the spring foliage in primrose, shaped them and added them over the foliage as shown.


Next I embossed a piece of the white with the brambles rose embossing folder and added silver chrome glitter kiss over the raised pattern.  There is a video of this technique on facebook and I will have a sow on this on Hochanda in April.

Finally I added  a bow of silver ribbon and finished with a pearl embellishment and some more layers of white and primrose.

Enjoy...

  2. Morning John, oh such a lovely spring card to greet us today, still dark here so cannot comment on the weather yet. I love the colours you have used and the little spring foliage really sets the card off a treat, yes it is added to my ever growing 'to do' list. Also looking forward to the shows from tomorrow night, yippee.

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