Early Sneak Peak...

Happy Monday,

I'm back on Hochanda next Monday with the stunning new Stained Glass dies by Sue Wilson for Creative expressions.  Anyone who has seen me at a show or demo recently will know how much I love these dies I've made so many samples that I decided ti start showing some early!




For today's Post I have focused on the embossing / quilting technique where you emboss different colours of card using the die and then cut out selected sections.  I mount these behind the die cut topper, a great way to make effective yet simple card.

Some times we all need a quick simple card but we want to  make them as interesting as possible.


I have used a combination of Cobalt, Primrose, sky blue and bright white to make both of these.

If you want to see how these are made and this technique then tune in next Monday night at 8pm.


Enjoy...

  27. Two lovely cards, though I have to favour the bird one as I have a "thing" for hummingbirds. I hope you are going to show this technique John as I do not really understand what you mean by quilting!
