Heirloom Ovals ...

Hi Everybody,

This beautiful creation is one of the Victorian Collection from Spellbinders.

It has been shown on the Create and Craft show and is made using the Heirloom Ovals.

I absolutely love these dies as they are so much my style and I love all the pretty lace effects that they produce.

And in some flowers, ribbons and pearls and there you have not just a pretty card but a really good title for a blog name ..... YaaaY!!

I cannot name the brands I use on TV but these  flowers are  from Wild Orchid Crafts

They have the addition of Glitter Magic  and all the pearly bits are from Want2Scrap

Several cards have been given away on the shows and I really hope you will like them when they get to you.

So I am going to prepare for the 7pm show and chatting at present to some of the others guests that are on today.

Having a good time and enjoying myself ... see you later and of course I will be back tomorrow

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

    This really is a beautiful card and, like you, is right up my street with it being lacey
    Glad everything is going okay for you. I'm going to try and watch it on the laptop later.

  6. Hi Christina. How beautiful is that card decorated superbly, imagine being given a card like that you would be chuffed to bits. That die is to die for.
    Hope you are having a wonderful time on TV, I bet it is hard work.
    Kind regards

  12. Watched your presentations on my computer after they appeared in UK. Beautiful card.
    When will these dies be available in the US??

  13. I have emailed my craft supply outlet to see when they will have this collection!!! I don't want all of them but some are definitely filed under 'must haves' Think I will have to rethink my computer/craft room layout to have virtual shelves etc for all of the extra dies I keep buying. You have reinforced my intention to not only cut but ti give embossing as well, a go. Never tried it but it doesn't look that hard? Your head must be spinning with all you are doing. Amazing lady, and supportive husband. Teamwork, love it! X

  14. Morning Christine,
    I'm enjoying the demos on your shows, just a pity you don't get to do more. A very pretty card today, love it.

  15. What a stunning card ,not a colour I would use normally but
    I love it.

  17. I caught the Friday show, you did great. Much more relaxed in front of the camera now. I love the dies, all of them. The card samples were a delight to see. Good thing I am not in the UK because I would have bought them right then and there. A really good deal, but it does not translate well with the exchange rate and international shipping.

  18. Christina, having so much fun watching you on the shows. You are so relaxed in front of the camera now. Loved the cards you made along with the box, they are lovely. I wish Spellbinders would release this group in the US; you are so right about the difference between UK and US cardmaking. I collect Spellbinders dies, love them all, use them a lot. They make a card into something special.

  19. Hi Christina, you're right...this card is so 'you'! It's elegant! I love the different shape, it's nice to have a more unusual shaped card once in a while isn't it. Sadly, I've not seen you this weekend as after a stupid accident in the garden I've banned myself from watching the TV until the headache is gone, and only enough time on the laptop to clear all my emails. I know you're going to have even more fun today and I'll watch out for the reruns to record. x

  20. Hi Christina. You have worked so hard the last couple of day's. Well done. Your cards have been Spectacular, so thank you. You are so relaxed in front of the camera.Hope you have had lots of fun. Hugs. Jan. xx

  21. Beautiful card today. Love the die you used and the way you decorated it.

  22. I like the oval card and all of the embellishment...
    You do wonders using these beautiful flowers.
    Well done Christina

  23. Love, love, love this beautiful card.

  24. This card is really georgeous. I love this die. Great details on it.
    Love it.

  25. Love the new dies and you have created a beautiful card with them. Glad you are enjoying Create and Craft. Dianne

  26. Oh what a gorgeous card Christina,so pretty!

  27. This is gorgeous. I was wondering if you have a tutorial on how to make these types of cards? I have tried, but i fail every time. I guess i don't know how to cut, and have the card open correctly. Would you please help?!?!
