I'm continuing with the Spellbinders One Day Special on Hochanda today with shows at 9am. 12noon, 4pm and 7pm. Lisa Horton has shows today too at 10am, 1pm and 5pm with some fab MDF. Hope you can join us.
I have another two-fer for you today featuring the die sets that are in the One Day Special.
Here's the first card - made entirely from Steel Pearl Card -
Alcohol Ink Applicator Tool to colour some pieces of Steel Pearl Card (I just did the edges of the mat pieces). I cut the inner die and one of the outside edge dies from the Spellbinders Acanthus Leaf Duality Die Set towards the bottom of a piece of Steel Card and added this to my Alcohol Inked card.
Spellbinders Acanthus Leaf Card Creator Die Set (love this die set - lots of techniques to show you with this) from another piece of Alchol Inked card. I then cut both dies together out of Steel Card and glued the 2 pieces together.
Craft Consortium Pearl Hearts with the same Alcohol Inks as before.
Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.
Here's the second card (and it is an actual card! lol) -
A5 Heat Emboss Acetate with Purple Twilight, Sailboat Blue and Sunset Orange Alcohol Inks using the Applicator Tool.
Coconut White Card in half. I popped the 2 pieces together and secured them with a piece of Craft Consortium White Satin Ribbon adding a Craft Consortium Small Circle Pearl Diamante Charm.
Justrite Chrysanthemum Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using one of the small dies from the Spellbinders Acanthus Leaf Tags Die Set and inked through the die with Chic Pumpkin Colour Cloud using a Smoothie. I cut the corresponding larger die from the set, again out of Coconut White Card and inked through the die with Chic Pumpkin.
Craft Consortium 5mm Pearls to the right hand corners.
I hope you've enjoyed today's two fer. I love Alcohol Inks - there are so many techiques you can do with them. I hope to be able to able to demonstrate some of them (please see last night's launch show on catchup on Hochanda's website here). Tim Holtz has done a bunch of videos on Alchol Inks - I've included a couple below -
