Show Day...

Happy Monday,

Dont forget to join me tonight at 6pm for the Launch of the One Day Special on Hochanda ( Freeview 85, Sky 663 or online at www.hochanda.com)  I will be demonstrating the brand new Cut and Emboss folder collection form Crafts Too.  These amazing folders will emboss the pattern as standard folders but during the pass will cut the centre panel out.  There are 6 different designs each with a different aperture in the centre.  Tune in to see the whole collection.

For today I thought I would share one of my favourite samples I have made for the show as it mixes the folders and the second part of the show the Media Plates.








For this card I actually used 2 of the folders the Corazon in the back and the Mariposa in the front.

I used a media plate made background for the lower layers cut with the heart and a piece of silver Lustre card in the front cut with the shaped folder.


to add some highlight and definition I added a messy bow of mixed ribbon at the bottom.  On top of this i added  spray of my starflower dies ( which I have also got on the show for anyone who missed them last time as they sold out so quickly!) I cut these form the scrap card I cleaned my brayer on so that the colours march the main card.  I shaped these and added a stick on pearl in the centre.

I will demonstrate the techniques in this card if not in tonights shows then tomorrow as I have shows at 9am, 1pm and Final Call at 5pm.


Enjoy...

  10. Great card I love the folder especially the abstract swirl design of the embossing The only thing that would put me off buying this one is the butterflies as I need my “buys” to work for all genders

  25. Love this card John and the colours. Watched the 6pm show and love the embossing folders. Tried to watch 8pm on iPad but no luck and it’s not ready on rewind yet. Might need to wait until I see my granddaughter. They have better internet. Will probably miss the 9am show as well. No Myra I won’t still be in bed! I have to go out before 8am to take my car to the garage and wait for it. Thought Myra would be here be here she said just now she was coming. Hope tomorrow goes well John. I have no doubts it will. Take carexxx

  27. Hello John,
    Isn’t that just typical - I get really cross and it works!!
    I loved the Show at 8 pm and learned so much as I always do. I did laugh about the skeleton leaves! Yes I have them ! Do I know where they are? Roughly? Lol!
    So pleased the Shows have been so successful - surprised - no!
    Ordered the flowers and leaves Dies!
    Thank you,
    Love Myra xx
