Hi Bloggers.

The Takeover Weekend is well underway on Hochanda. I have my first pair of shows today at 11am and 2pm with a selection of Creative Expressions Embossing Folders and lots of goodies that will work with them.

I have a trio of cards for you today featuring Sue Wilson’s Apron Die Set, various folders and other products. Be sure to have a look further down this post to see a selection of cards that I’ve made using the Woodware Stamps on the shows and the Ranger Gel Plate.

Apron Trio Embossing Folders

As I said, all the cards feature the Apron Die Set (I could have made dozens of cards with this set). The sentiments have been cut out using die #2 in the Ella Die Set.

Apron Wendy Vecchi Ink Pads

On this one, I coloured a piece of Coconut White Card with Patina Wendy Vecchi Make Art Ink using a Smoothie. Once the ink was dry, I cut the main die and the oven glove from the Apron Die Set. I embossed the Apron using the Zig Zag Squares Embossing Folder and sanded it back using a Sanding Block. I had a piece of Coconut White Card with mopped up ink on it – Garden Patina and Violet Wendy Vecchi Make Art. I cut the bottom section of the Apron and the pocket from it.

I cut the utensils out of Coconut White Card, Silver Shine Pearl and Steel Pearl Card. I added my utensils, then my pocket using CE Mounting Cushion. I trimmed the bottom section of the apron and added it using CE Mounting Cushion.

I added some Pastel Bakers Twine.

For my background, I dragged the Garden Patina Make Art Ink Pad across a piece of Coconut White Card. I embossed it using the Daisy Trail PinPoint Embossing Folders and highlighted the peeks in the design with Violet Make Art Ink using a Smoothie.

I matted onto Black Card and Coconut White Card. I completed my card by adding a 5mm White Pearl to each corner of my background.

Apron Pinpoint Embossing Folder Gel Plate

On the Apron on this one, I used a print from the Ranger Gel Plate with Red Geranium Make Art Ink and the Lavish Diamonds Embossing Folder.

For the background, I painted a piece of Coconut White Card using Moonlight Rose CS Luna Paste. Once dry, I embossed with the Graded Diamonds PinPoint Embossing Folder. I then added Antique Rose CS Glitter Kiss on top.

The sentiment is from the Woodware It’s the Little Things Stamp Set. I’ve edged the Ella Die Cut with a little Moonlight Rose Luna Paste applied with a little piece of Cut n Dry Foam and some Glitter Kiss.

I’ve added a Small Black Circle Dazzler to each corner of my background.

Apron Gel Pate Embossing Folders

Another Gel Plate print on this one – this time I have used the Decadent Dots 3D Embossing Folder and Violet Wendy Vecchi Make Art Ink. I cut the oven glove from the same.

I embossed the pocked using the Radiant Rings PinPoint Embossing Folder. I embossed the bottom section of the Apron using the Lavish Diamonds Embossing Folder. I added Blossom CS Gilding Polish to both pieces.

For the background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card with the Zig Zag Squares Embossing Folder. I spread Moonlight Mist CS Luna Paste all over the deboss side and put aside to dry.

There are 3 other sets of lovely Woodware Stamps on the shows which work brilliantly with the Ranger Gel Plate –

The stamps are Pomegranate, Fan Flowers and Magnolia Spray. I’ve used several of the Wendy Vecchi Make Art Ink Pads with the Ranger Gel Plate 3 Pack.

I’ve uploaded my samples from my shows to the Gallery on this Blog and to my Julia Watts Crafts Facebook Page.
