Day 4 Spellbinder samples

Hello Again Crafters,

Well I haven't long been back from C and C towers after 3 more hours of showcasing these amazing dies.  May I send a massive thank you to everyone for their fantastic emails - I hope that you enjoyed the 2 hours special with myself and Dean - what a laugh he is such a brilliant presenter to work with, the problem is you don't now what is coming next! We tried to answer lots of questions relating to die cutting and particularly the Spellbinder dies and in between throw in some demonstrations.  It was fun and I think one of the best shows that I have been involved in.

Today was the last shows of the week I have a workshop tomorrow at the shop and looking forward to playing with Joanna's stunning Holly Pond Hill stamps.  I do hope that the snow doesn't fall again tonight and stop everyone from getting to the shop.  Fingers and toes crossed.

Anyway, as promised more samples from the shows.

This one is actually a tent card but it was a struggle to get the photo right with this one.  
I really liked making this one as it was quite straight forward - the dies definitely did all the work.
I have used parts of the Adoring Squares set, the Stately Circles and the Butterflies.  They all seem to really gel with each other.  The paper that I have used is from the Papermania vintage collection. I picked this up on my travels.

The second sample for tonight is quite an eye catching one.  I have used Decorative Labels 22 and cut it very simply in black card and embossed it.  Unfortunately you cant see the embossed on the background but I have used the Special Touch Eyelet mask.  The stamping on the card is from the Beaded Elements stamp plate from Creative Expressions which has been embossed with Cosmic Shimmer embossing powder from the Vintage set.

I hope that you have enjoyed tonights offerings and I will pop back tomorrow to show you a few more.
Thankyou as always for having a peep and hope to see you here again soon.
Take care and Bye for now
Jo xx

  5. Hello Jo! Thank you for showing your demo cards here - saves me having to flick through the recording. You answered one of my questions about inking during the show which I thank you for. But I have another question (sorry). can you tell me the difference between the distress inks and the Adirondacks that you were using. (Love the currant colour!!) Why would I need these as well as the distress inks. Sorry if this isnt the right place to ask!!
    Take care

  7. Hi Jo
    Really enjoyed your shows especially the 2 hour session with Dean! Lots of great tips and demonstrtons. Would love you to describe how you made the steam punk book, that was one of the few shows I missed and didn't record. Have a great Workshop. Anne

  8. Really love your demos, Jo as you are always so clear. I cannot record the shows, so it's whatever I manage to 'catch', but I did enjoy the two hour show yesterday. I have some of the new Spellbinders pre-ordered. Although not from C & C, my choice is very much inspired by you!

  9. Loved the shows Jo annd your demos were so educational. Love Dean. He is my favourite presenter and really does happy shows.
