inspirations again...

Happy Sunday,

JulianWatts and I are demoing at inspirations in Preston again today I'm showcasing the new festive dies form sue Wilson whilst Julia is having a spellbinders Christmas.  It was so nice to meet so many of you yesterday I had a fab time as I know Julia did!

Today's card was made for a magazine that wanted some examples of the fabulous weaving dies from sue Wilson.  I took this photo just before it ws sent off however I only got it back last week!  I thought this would be a perfect card to give away as it has been on the blog and published! Lol

Again as yesterday this card is up for grabs just leave a comment toady I will pick a winner for yesterday and today on Monday !  First sneak peak for the shows tomorrow


Enjoy...

  28. Hi John. I bought Sue's weaving dies on launch as I love the woven effect. So why haven't I used them? Why am I so scared of them? What a whimp!! SueL x

  29. Hi John,
    What A Truly Beautiful, Stunning Card, First Of All Please Don't Put My Name In The Draw As I Was Lucky To Win Last Weeks Background Stamp And I Don't Wish To Be Greedy!!!!
    I Really Love The Fabulous Colour Palette You've Chosen For Your Awesome Card And The Stunning Flower I Haven't Got These Dies But Must Get Them But I'm Buying Christmas Right Now, I Go To A Small Craft Class In The Town Where I Live And We Tried The Weaving Technique, Some Time Ago But We Had To Cut Strips By Using Paper Cutter Still Took Quite A While In Two Different Colour-ways I Kept Having To Check To See If It Was Correct I Had To Change Many Times, In The End I Took It Home Feeling Pleased With Myself Until I Sat And Looked At It And Yes You Guessed There Was A Mistake So That's Where I Put My Sentiment Lol!
    As "The Lovely Ang" Says You Bring The Weaving Dies To Life Thanks For Sharing John.
    Have Another Great Day
    Hugs From Sam x

    Another stunner today using the weaving dies. Love they, but they went downwards on my list when Sue bought out her Christmas Dies and you your stamps and paper pad. Keeping my fingers crossed that I get to see this stunning card close up.

  43. Morning John another beautiful card, don't have the weaving dies but they are on the wish list, but afraid the Christmas Dies took priority.
    Love both today and yesterdays cards but I think Yesterdays just shades it for me as it is one of my favourite colours

  44. Hiya John,
    I am a newbie to your blog and what a truly splendid card for my maiden visit! The weaving dies are top of my wish list but like Wendy the Christmas dies have taken priority. I love the colour combination and the style of weaving that you have chosen. I look forward to your appearances on Hochanda in the near future, your demos with mixed media are inspirationalxxxx Laine1972

    I am relatively new to your blog. This gorgeous card is lovely especially that basket weave background. Just love your cards. They have certainly got me inspired to creating with the new CE dies I've brought recently.
