Dark and Spiffing...

Happy Monday,

Today I am starting to share some Sneak Peaks from my New Media Collection of dies that launch on Hochanda on saturday Live from the Create It show in Kent.

I used all of the new dies its on this card and will be demoing the techniques I used on Saturdays show.

You may notice a New Jelly baby this one is called Spiffing Sam as he is pretty spiffing in his top hat!

I know this is an unusual card and style for me but I have really enjoyed designing and using these dies!

More tomorrow,



  1. Morning John, a really different card but I like it, a bit steam punk, looking forward to the show to see how this was achieved.

  2. Morning John, oh what a treat we are in for on Saturday when you launch these at the Detling show, yes I hope to be first in the queue, got a VIP ticket, am loving spiffing Sam with his Top Hat and also the clock face, the cogs and chains too. Yes you have my vote on these.

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

  4. Hi John. Love the clock face, cogs and wheels. I use this sort of look for men's cards and am always on the look-out for more variations of them. Can't wait to see what you have come up with.
