Thanks for popping in.
Oh boy! What a busy 2-hour TV show on HOCHANDA that was! If you missed it, you can catch up on HOCHANDA.com . They store it for about 7 days, if I’m not mistaken. We do like the old Clarity Classics, don’t we! For me, using the Speedball Brayer is like putting on a really old, comfortable pair of slippers. And with these new Backdrop stamps of ours, it spreads the ink so well. Thank you for watching and supporting. xxx
At 6pm I am launching the most amazing Trio of splendiferous Groovi Plates, designed by my dear friend Linda Williams: It’s a Wrap Part II. You may remember the first 3, and how they flew? Well these three are – dare I say it – even better! They are actually designed to create envelopes, pretty pockets and ribbon wrap arounds, but wait till you see what Linda calls an envelope! HAHAHA. I just see amazing designs, patterns, combinations, wraps. Seriously good. And a must have if you bought the first 3.
Sunday’s blog is a step by step, right? So here’s a lovely project created by Linda herself, using the Pretty Pocket plate. I am hoping to get to this demo on Monday at 8am – stock permitting!
Ready? Here goes…
Build the pattern on the flaps…
Perforate around the cutting edge, ready to picot cut, or just use a good pair of scissors to cut out the pocket.
Now for the borders. We’ll use one of the ribbon wraps for this…light blue parchment this time. And the same process. Some whitework and some colour to match the pretty pocket.
Add a touch of silver Pergaglitter to the artwork, using a mapping pen and sticky ink.
Time to see what’s inside the little secret envelope….
Ahhhh…. Presh the Pergamano Poppet is inside the Pretty Pocket!! Say that when you’ve had a couple of sherries! These are our Poppet Parchment prints. So lovely! And so many options! 18 in fact.
The No. 4 nested Picot square die fits inside the pocket like a glove.
A little whitework, a little colour, a little glitter …
Finally, mount on a piece of the new Antarctica Designer paper.
That’s it. Actually very achievable indeed. I will take you through it again tomorrow morning at 8am if you fancy.
Must dash now. Just time to have a quick cuppa before we kick off at 6. Hope you can join us on Hochanda.com
Linda, if you are reading this, all I can say is THANK YOU. You are such a good friend.
Love and hugs
