Good morning my dear blogging chums. Hope you're all healthy and happy.
I have another new follower to welcome, Beryl. Thank you for joining our happy paddlers at The Pond. I try to please, so I shall do my best to inspire lol!
Thanks also to Toni and Judy for popping by.
Dear Ita what are you doing to that Grand Caliber? Have you tried contacting Christine Emberson? She is usually a great help with all matters Caliber and is now a Spellbinders International Ambassador. I notice there is a new GC in the pipeline, a grey one that is supposidly stronger.
Now, today is a picture heavy post. . . . . . . .blame Karenlotty lol!!! Your pics on how I did John's birthday card are at the end chuck.
This is another of my CEDT application cards (don't worry, there's only another two to go lol!!!)
The sentiment could so easily apply to all of you!
I love doing these channel set flower cards and decided on this design and the partial embossing to try and add a little interest. The embossing is actually a mask, rather than a folder.
SB Bitty Blossoms
SB Matting Basics A & B
That Special Touch Elegance mask
Black Archival ink pad
Spun Sugar DI pad
Thought it may actually make a nice sympathy card (with a change of sentiment of course lol!!!)
Hope you like it and as I said, 3 down 2 to go hahaha!!!
Now Karen, I have sort of re-done my steps using some black paper and silver pen to show how I did John's card (here for those who are wondering what I'm wittering about). Hope it makes sense. . . . . . .
A single piece of card, scored at a third of the way across.
The middle page, cut to size and scored at 5mm along the edge. This will form the "hinge".
I used 3mm red liner tape along the "hinge" and then adhered it to the right of the score line on the base card (do the to the right of the line so that you can still fold the front over)
The real thing again . . . . . . .
Hope the instructions make sense or that I'm not in a Granny and eggs sucking situation lol!!!
Hope you're all going to be watching our lovely John on C&C today. Sadly, I will be at work for both of his shows (curses, drat and double drat!!!) and sadly, they don't class "me mate's on the telly" as an emergency, which is dashed inconvenient!
I will catch up on the app thingy (not the same, as I can't email in and heckle him, lol!!!)
I've got Mr D, Nesta, the girls at the Charity shop and some from work all primed to watch (although Mr D did confess, he may not be able to watch for a whole hour).
Sorry its been a long one (I'm sure there's a bishop and actress joke lurking in there somewhere) but go have a nap to get over it, if you're not asleep already, and then have a great day!
