Hi Bloggers.

Sue Wilson amd John Lockwood are continuing with their Pick of the Day Shows today on Ideal World and Create & Craft - please check the schedules for show times.

Here's today's card -

I finally managed to get hold of some Foundations Lilac Card - yay!

For the background, I did a fine weave using Lilac and Coconut White Card and Sue's Striped Weaving Die. Those of you who are booked onto my workshop in Milton Keynes on 16th May will learn how to do this. It is quite time consuming, but the finished result is well worth the effort.

I made a frame using Sue's Ornate Pierced Rectangles Die Set.

I cut Sue's Enjoy Expressions Die out of Lilac Card.

I cut the border from Sue's Greek Collection Corner, Border & Tag Die Set out of Coconut White Card, cut it in half and added it to the frame.

I made a flower using Sue's Cornflower Die Set using Lilac Card. I added a new Dazzler and some twirly bits cut using a couple of dies from Sue's Splendid Swirls Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White 8mm Pearls to the corners and piercing around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  20. Lovely card Julia, the weaving die looks great. Have the shows recording to watch when I can - hopefully soon.

  21. Hello Julia and all

    Lovely card. Wonderful colour, so delicate. I really like the fine weave that you do with these dies. You have probably had trouble finding lilac foundation card because Sue has it all knowing how much she likes it also. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm enjoying the C&C shows but I wish it was Sue and yourself doing them.

    Best wishes

  22. This is so wonderful, just watched Sue using these from last nights show. This is a fab colour choice, xxx

  23. Julia,

    Spectacular card today. You are so inspirational. If I lived in England, I would be signed up for all of your classes. However, I get the next best thing with your blog and your C & C appearances.

    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  26. Hello Julia, a really lovely card, the lilac card is a beautiful colour. Take care. Bx

  27. Hi Julia. Saw this card yesterday on Ideal World and thought then what a beautiful card in such lovely colours. It is nice to see you, Sue and John doing samples with the same dies as each one of you has their own unique way with them which gives me that much needed inspiration. Thank you. x
