So, the Crisscross die seems to have been really popular with everyone. Sorry, I won't be stocking any of the new dies in my Amazon Store as I just can't compete with the low prices some sellers sell their dies for. There are so many more sellers on Amazon selling craft products than there were when I started selling on there about 4 years ago. Lots of them are under-cutting me - but beware, they may catch you out on postage if you order more than 1 item. I shall be reviewing my sales and will have to decide whether it's still worth my while selling on there or if I should wind it down. I will, of course keep you posted.
Here's today's card -
I stamped the Delicate Lily using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured the petals in using Violet Frost Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Garden Flora Mica Spray Set. I coloured the leaves in using Soft Moss Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Ink from the Garden Twist Set. I cut it out using a Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large die and inked through the die with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.
Frosted Violet Dazzler.
White Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
A lovely card, great colour. Loving the noble rectangles die.

Good morning Julia this card is gorgeous. I watched the shows I had recorded your demos were amazing. Sorry about your Amazon store I understand that things are difficult.

love this flower so pretty .Laura OReplyDelete
Just wanted to say how much I enjoy shopping at your store. I totally trust your site and receive a fabulous service. I have always found your pricing and postage to be completely fair and compares well with everyone else. If you decide to wind it down I will really miss shopping from you. Love checking out your blog every day - hope you will continue to do this.
So pretty Julia - love the colours and the lace bow. tfsReplyDelete
Hi Julia. Another pretty card love the colour. I forget you can just emboss the dies.ReplyDelete
Hi Julia. Love the colour of the card and the new dies.ReplyDelete
Love Val x
Hi julia this is a lovely card the colour of the card is a lovely shade and the lily stamp is really nice too. I too am sorry to hear about your amazon shop it would be a shame if you had to stop as your service is second to none, I prefer buying from just a couple of sites that I trust. I have to rely on buying from the Internet as I don't live anywhere near a craft shop so I don't mind paying postage as its cheaper than travelling to a craft shop!! Love Lesley xReplyDelete
this is stunning and I love the color.I am sorry to hear about your e.bay shop,I would have loved to shop with you Julia ,,but as you explained to me ,the problem was that I would be paying in Euro,.perhaps you might look into this,as as lot of my crafting friends live in"the Euro Zone" it is just a thought ,it may help and increase sales
Thanks for the inspiration of your blog and your shows last week.they were fantastic as usual.

Yes at first I was put off buying from your store as I thought the postage was the same for each item and that can obviously mount up but then I realised it was only a very small amount for any additional item, I wish I had realised that sooner. Your service is great and very quick with the delivery.
Thanks Julia for sharing your card with us today x
Hi julia, a beautiful card. Love the embossing and the flower.ReplyDelete
