Well, some of you may have noticed the links appearing in the text in yesterday's and Monday's post as my website is now live and taking orders! There's only about 300 products on there at the moment. Last night I added Sue Wilson's new dies. They're in stock now - you can see them here. There are new dies in the Canadian, Portuguese, Nobles, Finishing Touches, Expressions and a new collection - Configurations. I don't have any of the new striplets or gemini dies - seem to have forgotten to order those!
Here's the link to the homepage - juliawattscrafts.co.uk You can also click on Shop in the top menu of this blog. Don't expect it to be as slick as alot of the sites out there - it's really early days yet and I'm just getting to grips with it! I am offering 10% discount during the launch period which expires midnight 4th May. Everyone who attends my Milton Keynes Workshops will receive a code to get a permanent 10% discount on my site - those who attended the March Workshop will receive their code via email next week. You can also book workshops at both Kettering and Milton Keynes via my website. At the moment, I'm just delivering to UK addresses. I will try and expand to European addresses soon.

Back to today's card -
Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Wild Roses Embossing Folder. I then spread some Phill Martin CS Decadent Denim Sparkle Texture Paste over the deboss side, removing as much of the excess paste as possible. I put aside to dry - it doesn't take long as the paste isn't very thick when applied in this manner.
I cut a frame out of Cobalt Card using a couple of dies from the Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics B Die Set. Once the background was dry, I added the frame to it using 3D Foam, trimming off the excess. I cut a mat out of Coconut White Card using Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics A.
I stamped the sentiment from John Lockwood's Fern Frames Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Cobalt Archival. I cut it out using the smallest die in Spellbinders Floral Assortment Die Set and inked through the die using Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink and a Smoothie.
I cut the circular die from the Spellbinders Blooming Collection Die Set out of Cobalt Card.
I made a flower out of Coconut White Card using Spellbinders Flower Play Die Set (again! it's what people want to see me demo!), I added Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue and some CS Iced Snow Glitter Jewels. I tied a bow using Creative Expressions Off White Satin Ribbon. I tied another bow out of the thinner ribbon in the Bluebird Satin Ribbon Pack. I made a couple of decorative stick pins using Creative Expressions Stick Pin Elements and Glossy Accents.
Pearl Corners and piercing around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
