Thanks so much

Hi Bloggers.

I'm demoing at Dandie Crafts in Pontypridd today 10 till 4. Like yesterday's demo, this is a ticketed event so you will need to contact the shop to see if there are any spaces available.

Here's today's card -

This is an actual card - I know I don't make many of them but they are so easy to create with Sue Wilson's Noble Dies.

So, for the card blank, I folded a piece of Coconut White Card in half. I placed one side of the largest die in Sue's Ornate Pierced Squares Noble Die Set with the cutting edge just outside the fold. I ran it through the Grand Calibur to cut out the card blank.

I spread some Phill Martin Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste in Chic Viola and Chic Aubergine through the Wavy Mask onto Coconut White Card and put aside to dry (approx 1 1/2 hours).

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Fabulous Sentiments Clear Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card. I cut it out using Sue's Pierced Flags Die Set and cut a larger die from the same set out of Amethyst Card.

I made a frame out of Coconut White and Amethyst Card using Sue's Ornate Pierced Squares Noble Die Set.

I made some flowers out of White Felt from the Wedding Felt Pack using Sue's Classic Foldover Flowers Die Set (see my video here). I cut some leaves out of Coconut White Card and rubbed some Phill Martin Chic Aubergine Gilding Wax over them.

Thanks for stopping by.

  12. Hi Julia,
    Lovely card, I love the noble dies and have this set, it's such a useful set as it's good for men's cards too. Gorgeous colours and like the way you've used 2 colours of texture paste. Hope you have a good day today.

  13. Good morning Julia this is a wonderful card. I think I should invest in some more of the noble dies. I saw something on Facebook yesterday that said Creative Expressions wasn't going to be on Create and Craft anymore. I wondered if this was just a rumour. Have a great day you are a busy lady. Hugs Jackie

    1. I've seen that too. Apparently someone said I said that but that isn't true - I said that none of us have shows AT THE MOMENT. That is true! Julia

    2. Thank you for setting the record straight. It is so easy for rumours to start circulating. I do enjoy watching you all on TV. Hugs Jackie

    A simple card but great for that, I love the Noble dies and it is nice to see them used with a bold colour and a great background. Thanks for sharing.

  34. Hi Julia

    I love it, purple ie a winner and the waves from the mask look a little like zebra stripes! I've not yet made a card from the noble dies in this way but will soon as I think it looks amazing.
