Faux Quilled Blooms and Leaves

Hi Everybody,

Another in blue and I promise I will use another color after this one.

But this blue card has caused many emails as a lot of you seem to like this shade as well.

It is from Limetree Crafts.  I buy their card from the craft shows and it is always good value for money...but the link to their website is not working at present

So there are more new dies used on this card and they are all from the Finishing Touches by Sue Wilson.

I have used  Faux  Quilled  Leaves,  Faux  Quilled Blooms  and  the  Fern  Trio and   I got all of these dies from   JGD Crafts

The ribbon is from   Mei Flower   and I have added ribbon loops with a large pearl and diamante centre which is from Wild Orchid Crafts

The pearls in the centre of each bloom are from Want2Scrap  and it makes for a very pretty card.

Book a Workshop 

Now  something I want to share with you ...  and that  is that  I have had  two  invitations  to run workshops using the  Spectrum Noir  Coloring System.

One is 13th September for JGD Crafts and they are based in Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottingham  and that class is already fully booked.

The other is 4th October for Crafting 4pleasure and they are based in Bristol ... so if you live in the area and would like to attend the workshop then email  Bev at  craftypleasures@hotmail.co.uk   

There are some places still available so email now  to secure your place, bring your pens along  and I'll see you there

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Hello Christina, yes I have to admit that I'm a great fan of this pretty blue and what delicate dies you've used. Very pretty! Janelle x

  2. Good morning Christina,
    I love your beautiful card, the use of Sue's dies is amazing.
    Oh! how I wish I could attend your "colouring class".
    Someday maybe someday I will find you in Scotland and near enough to be able to experience your talents.
    Have a great day

  13. Morning Christina,
    Another beautiful blue and white card using my favourite Sue Wilson dies, they seem to be going on all my cards at the moment.

  14. The card is gorgeous as ever Christina....that blue is such an amazing colour.....would love to join one of your colouring sessions, but alas, tooooooo far...luv Ursula xx

  15. Hi Christina, .... I am in shock as I have had the feed on the right day twice now! lol I have to agree with all of the above .... this is such a lovely blue, it sets off everything perfectly. I would dearly love to attend one of your workshops. but too far away for me as well. Come to Cardiff and I am sure I will find a way to get there! (Hint hint!) lol.
    Hugs, Karen xx

  16. Congratulations on the workshops! What a wonderful way to share your talent, and encourage others. Wish I could attend you classes, but I'm in the middle of the US.

  17. hello Christina, again a very nice card! and I agree with all of the above, come to The Netherlands to give a workshop making cards your style!

  18. Another gorgeous card with Sue Wilsons collection. Love those flowers.

  19. I just don't think I'll ever have the dies to do all this beautiful work. Most of them u can't find locally here near Sacramento CA USA. Sometimes I just improvise using what I gave but they aren't quite as nice as they could be with the same dies.

  20. I have to agree with all the comments. Lovely shade of blue.. and you've used the dies in a spectacular way.

  21. Hi Christina,
    Oh no, don't use another color...you still have many blues to go through...yes, blue is my favorite color. Nevertheless, if you must, you must. I love you card, and love, love, love, the Faux Quilled dies. I so wish I could attend your class, but I live across the pond and it is a wee bit far...isn't nice to see how much we all love you.

  22. Really pretty card Christina, I do love this blue.

  23. Hi Christina
    You keep making blue cards and I'll keep admiring them lol.

  24. Yes, I for sure love this color and the card that you made is spectular....
    Well done Christina

  25. Beautiful card Christina. You have got me hooked on the Sue Wilson dies. Hugs Rita xxxx

  26. Wow,that's another gorgeous card Christina! I love the faux quilled flowers,very pretty die you have there! TFS,:-)
