Just Wanted To Say

Hi guys!  I thought I would give you a sneak peek at one of the cards that I will be showing on Hochanda today at 3pm!  I have a one hour show that is just for showcasing the City Skyline Circle Scene die set (shown here)  I will be doing the ODS that starts tonight  with shows at 6pm and 8pm as well.  Today's card is such a quick and easy card to do.  I started with a piece of coconut white card and used the Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxides to create the background.  I used the pad edge to just make stripes of colour out from a central point in the lower middle of the card. I used a gold paint pen and flicked it randomly to add a bit of a sparkle.   I set it with a heat tool to dry, then die cut the sentiment in black gloss card and glued it into the top of the card.  I used the larger building die from the City Skyline set and cut it across and extended it a bit using a piece of black gloss card.  I cut the other sentiment (Congratulations) in white and glued it below the buildings.  I attached the buildings to the bottom of the card, then completed it with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/4" x  7" in size.  I hope you can tune in to see all the other lovely samples done with this die set and then later on for the tart of the One day Special!  All for now, Sue x

Working but have your shows on record. Your background looks like it has been painted. Like the straight forward look of your skylines.

Hello Sue, this card is fab, it was one of my favourites from the release blog posts, love the way the sky has been done. Setting the shows to record, looking forward to all the inspiration. Have a great day everyone. Bx

Good Morning Sue and all
What a stunning card this morning . This die has to be my favourite from your new collection. Looking forward to watching your shows later. Hope you have lots of fun.

Steph Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to the next two days watching (and recording) your shows. When I first saw this die and sample at launch I thought WOW how amazing and how different to anything else you've bought us over the years, they are absolutley brilliant Sue and I can't wait to see what you do with them. My only hope is that you do more silhouette subject dies like landscapes, family - mother/father and baby, sister/brother and baby, trees flowers and forna, they can make such wonderful home decor and lit up in mason jars look so amazing, so please if you can design more of these amazing wonderful dies ☺
Hope your day is full of fun and you can leave your anxieties at HOCHANDA's front door and be prepared for big sell out's over the next two days. Sending hugs to take with you xxx

Hello Sue,

What a super card. I have to say that it reminds my of sunset in New York City. What a clever way of doing the background. Really looking forward to your shows over the next two days. Your samples are always wonderful and you always share such wonderful ideas and techniques with us.

Wishing a wonderful and successful two days of shows.

Morning Sue,

Beautiful skyline card, have booked a slot to sit down and watch you later on Hochanda.

Have been away for a while visiting my sister and taking in a short trip to London to watch the show Shen Yun at the Dominion theatre. Absolutely fantastic. Then came hoe to see my lovely gift from you..The mini die Happy Birthday. It must have arrived whilst I was away and will be very handy for the birthday cards I've yet to make for next month's family occasions


Love 7 hugs

The card is a winner - love the die. So looking forward to seeing you at 3pm and on the ODS. I do wish that there was another craft show other than Ally Pally ie in the North as I cannot make it to London. WakeyL

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I like this card and remember it from the launch. The background still makes me think of fireworks :-) I am looking forward to seeing you create it and have all the shows set to record. Good Luck (not that you need it) and I hope everything goes smoothly for you.

Donita Naylor said...

Ingenious background!
It looks like you can snip parts of the tall buildings or not let the windows show if you want to extend the die withou seeming to repeat the building shapes.
Going to check Hochanda.
Thank you for the tip about Maximum Crafts having the Dots embossing folder.
Best,
Donita

Good morning Sue.. A day late with my comment as usual. Yesterdays card is very striking and I do love the sky which I'm sure would lend itself to other dies in addition to the skyline.
I'm about to try to watch Hochanda on my PC and it starts in 2 minutes so BFN

Marie P from Longridge said...

What a disappointment Sue,
I thought I was going to watch you on my PC but I obviously had the wrong day as it looks like you are not on today and I was so looking forward to it.
Hope it went well as I'm sure it did.
