More of the Blues...

Hi Everybody,

I love this shade of blue and it is from a paper pack that I got at the crafts show

There are 20 sheets in the pack and it is from Limetree Craft ...

When I Googled the name it came up with quite a few and I am not sure which one it is and so I haven't added the link.

The lacy panel on the card is  the Californian Collection by  Sue Wilson  and this one is called Hollywood   from   JGD Crafts ... and they will ship abroad for those of you who are having trouble getting the die in your own country.

The pearly flourish is from  Want2Scrap
The ribbon is from  Mei Flower  and is a soft and pretty gingham and I have tied it into a double bow.

The flowers and the Diamante centre to the bow are from  Wild Orchid Crafts   and the little sentiment is from  Crafters Companion

If you look carefully at this card then you can see that the outer blue layer is the waste that is left over from the Reflective Moments

Once the filigree panel was cut for the   Blue card  shown the other day   I  couldn't just throw this away  and so here it is here.

Just by carefully positioning the die on the card you wish to cut can give you something extra ... sort of two for the price of one !!

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  12. Christina,
    What a gorgeous card, I just love it, it's blue. I would like to thank you for using your "waste" to make such gorgeous card. I cannot tell you how many times I've been made fun of for keeping my "waste", but they do come in handy, as you have demonstrated so beautifully. Just love it.

  19. I'm so glad I found your site. Seeing your cards give me such inspiration..they're all so beautiful. I also love that you use the leftover parts after using a die. I'm going to try that too. It just never occurred to me..duh! I wish someone here in the U.S. sold Sue Wilson's dies..you've made me want so many of them. :)
    I also love reading about your trips with your "film crew". Thank you for the inspiration and the interesting blogs.
