Fog,.. perfect excuse to stay in my craft room all day! :-)
So, I'm taking the time to add a few more posts to the Blog, featuring some of the cards from my last shows on Hochanda and this is one of my favourites!
I absolutely love Chic Aubergine,.. it's a beautiful, rich, elegant colour that works so well on both white and cream cardstock...
You can be in with a chance of winning the card I made on air in Chic Magenta, over on my Facebook Page,.. you have until Friday :-)
Now, I did notice a few of you leave comments on my Blog that you're not on Facebook, so I will do a little giveaway card on here for you too :-) (details at the bottom of this post)
Here's what I used:
Foundations Milk Cardstock
Chic Aubergine Ink Mister, Twinkles and Pearl PVA Glue
Dies by Sue Wilson, Portuguese Collection, Lisbon and Corner, Border, Tag Set
Dies by Sue Wilson Camellia Complete Petals
Dies by Sue Wilson Curled Vines
Cosmic Shimmer Glacier Ice (shocked you that didn't it ha ha)
Sentimentally Yours Scribbled Sentiments Stamps
Creative Expressions Crystal Corner Embellishments
Creative Expressions Wild Roses A4 Embossing Folder
Here's what I did:
I then did all the die cutting, which was the base layer, base and largest lacy layer of the Lisbon dies, the tag from the Corner, Border & Tag set, 7 Camellia flowers and two Curled Vines.
The base layer of the card was ink misted with the Chic Aubergine Ink Mister, as were the Camellia flowers and the base layer of the Lisbon dies. These were then set to one side to dry properly (only takes about 5 minutes, depends how heavy handed you are with the ink mister)
Now the ink misted pieces were dry, I stuck the lacy part of the Lisbon die to the ink misted base with CS Glue, then went around the edges with my Chic Aubergine Twinkles and dunked it in my Glacier Ice Glitter Jewels. I then did the same to the tag die cut and stuck that on with foam tape, finishing by adding two drops of the Chic Aubergine Pearl PVA Glue to create two faux pearls in the perfect colour!
I then added a big blob of Chic Aubergine Twinkles to the centre of the Camellia flowers and also dunked these into the Glacier Ice (note that I haven't shaped the petals of these flowers, just bent them up,.. this gives more dimension, particularly when you stick them to your card with CS Glue as it dries quicker)
Once everything was dry, I stuck all the base layers together with CS Glue, then added the Lisbon topper with foam tape, the sentiment was shaped, to create a curve, this was stuck with CS Glue, but just on the two points that make contact with the card, I finished off by adding the flowers and leaves as shown, then added the lovely Crystal Corners to 'frame' the whole card.. simple!
And here's the finished card :-)
As always, everything I have used is available on my website at www.honeypotcrafts.co.uk, but I do know the Scribbled Sentiments Stamps and Crystal Corners (and indeed the pearl ones) are very low in stock..
Anyhoo, as promised, here's the card I created on air on one of my Hochanda shows and this one is for my Bloggers to win,.. to be in with a chance of winning, simply leave a comment on this post and make sure you are following my Blog (you must be a follower to be able to win) (you can also share my blog address all over t'internet too if you want :-)
I will select a name, randomly, from the comments list this Friday (6th November)... Good Luck!
Until tomorrow,... Happy Crafting!
