Two more Collections

Click to Enlarge
Hi Everybody,

Todays card issuing more of the Craft Die Collections from Sue Wilson.

Todays dies are Granada from the Spanish collection and Hollywood from the California collection  and both are from JGD Crafts

Once again it shows you how these dies can be mixed and matched together for some really pretty results.

I have used Broken China to ink the card while it was still in the die and that produces the  pattern that can be seen around the edge.

Here you can see in close up how the Hollywood die looks when it is layered with the Basic Frames

I have used lots of foam tape and pads to give  depth to the design as flat cards although lovely ...  are not my thing.

The little label with the sentiment is one I had in my stash and is from another set

The stamp is one I have had for a long time and I have no idea where it is from

But the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the added glamour is the glitter from Glitter Magic.

All the pearls on the card are from Want2Scrap

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  24. Hi Christina, I particularly love the way you glitter up a whole die cut layer. Can you tell me, do you use glitter card or do this yourself? I have tried to apply glitter to a die cut but the glue makes it warp or I get an uneven finish. Do you have a tutorial video on how you achieve this look? Thanks for all the wonderful things you teach. Regards Jenny.

  25. Lovely card Christina! I'd love some of those dies,they look awesome.TFS :-)
