Three in a row!

Happy Friday,

Don't worry I have plenty more of my experiments with the Sue Wilson Background Dies to come if you are missing them.  Today is the third in my New Spellbinders line tomorrows something different is in this line as well!

Today's card is another quick one I made using the new release dies, I was hoping to use one I really like which is Belly Band one however with the new spellbinders packaging you cant see what die is in the packet so someone in their factory must have mispackaged my Belly Band (sounds rude doesn't it!) so I found labels 38 in the packet which arrived at the same time so now I have 2. The place i ordered them from has kindly agreed to send me the correct one but it will be a couple of weeks.

Therefore for today's card I had to settle for Spellbinders Elegant Ovals instead.

Busy week at the mo so little description sorry, simply want to say how much i love the biggest oval stuck down to the duck egg blue card with the aperture foam mounted over.  may have to try this in a couple of other styles when I get time.



  1. Morning John,

    This is stunning, love it all especially the dies and colour. This looks like a beautiful Oval die that I may have to invest in, i prefer to use ovals rather than circles wherever possible. The backing paper you used looks very pretty though most of it is hidden but it looks like you have coloured part of it Blue? I may be wrong but looks great.

    Love & Hugs

  2. Fancy you getting a miss- packaged set of dies, I've never heard of that happening before, but people are human, aren't they. So glad it will be sorted out. As for ovals, they are my favourite shape, so you can't go wrong with them, for me.

  3. Ovals are a favourite shape of mine too Need to invest in more dies to do ovals! Pretty colours

  4. Hi John. What a gorgeous card, it so pretty. The Elegant Ovals are beautiful aren't they. Sorry that you have to wait to get the Belly Band dies. And how annoying that the dies in the package were a set that you already had out of the hundreds/thousands different available! Glad that you will get the right ones soon though : ) Have a good weekend. Take care.

  5. Morning John,

    Just catching up on your blogs after a few days in Frankfurt and enjoying the 45free minutes at the airport. Beautiful card. I'm in the 'oval camp' too! Very sophisticated. Best wishes. Anne O
