Something different Saturday...

Happy Saturday,

I'm in Preston today at Inspirations with Julia Watts today and tomorrow so if you are in the area it would be great to see you!  Today's card is a demo card from my shows this week on Hochanda however due to these dies selling out `I never got to demo it fully!

This card was made using the just rite three in a row die set.  I used the die three times across the front of a 5" square card blank.  Next I used the three sure dies that come in the set and cut these into a black layer I added to make the frames.

Next I made the colour cloud background and used one piece for the back of the card and cut the pinwheel daisies from the remainder.  I stacked these up and added then to the sentiment circles cut using the stitched banners die set.

These dies did sell out on the show so I didn't get to do the demo however Julia has some still in stock on her website.



  1. Morning John, loving today's card xx

  7. Good morning John. This card is so effective - the Just Rite dies look as though they could be a useful set to have. I have been trying out some colour cloud backgrounds as you were showing on Hochanda - sold on them, so next purchases need to be more c c colours.

  8. Good morning John this is a gorgeous card I love the design. I am not surprised that the dies sold out. Have a great time with Julia today. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  22. Lovely card with a difference. Like the back part using the colour cloud.


  23. This is such a different card John from you but I think I like it 😊
    Not too far from Preston being here in Leonie Land - Bolton, but not up to getting on the car and joining you both but I know you will have a naughty fun time full of crafting banter and giggles. Have a great day xx

  24. Hi John,
    I love that card. Colours are perfect.
    Hugs, Rose

  25. Lovely card John. Have a good time in Preston.

  26. Nice card John. This die could be really useful, just imagine all the possibilities. Shame it sold out so we couldn't see the demo.

  28. Fantastic card John, just love everything about it.
    Love Val x

  29. Hi John
    Fab card John. It's a shame that the die ran out and we couldn't see the demo. The problem being that we'd still like to see it he demotes for the ones that sold out so we have an idea how to use them. Sounds like a throwback to C & C to me.

  30. Had a great time this morning watching you work your magic and passing on all of your hints and tips!

  31. Lovely card ! I also like to have that die,
    to make equally nice cards perhaps.
