Weave Effect ...

Hi Everybody,

This pretty design is using both of the new Weaving dies from Sue Wilson and they give a really unusual effect to your cards

The titles of them are  Weaving Dies Classic  and Weaving Dies Striped   and both are available from Joanna Sheen

They can be used separately or together and the look will be different each time

For this card I have used both together to create the pink and white weaves  and then added a large rose from Spellbinders   Crafty Flower Four

The vine behind the flower is  Foliage Flourish  and the sentiment is  Sentiments Three 

The base card is created from Grand Large Labels but this has been retired from Spellbinders website.

How ever you may still be able to find retired dies if you visit other companies that deal with "Close Out"  dies.

Have a browse around  Save On Hobbies  and the price will be reduced too but once they are gone there will not be any more

The turquoise card has used both dies again but I have added in the color just once and it gives another look to the design

The flowers are from  Wild Orchid Crafts  and I have added diamante into each corner from   Want2Scrap

The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley  and there are many for all occasions for you to choose from

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  9. Hi Christina
    Love both if these card that uouve put on today. I love the grand large labels, but they don't gave them on thus site. It's a shame they've been discontinued.

  11. Christina I love the weaving in the card, a really useful one without flowers for the male cards. As I have 4 sons a real must. Thanks Ann

  12. Both cards are so lovely. The weaving dies are very creative. I love Sue Wilson products but they were pretty difficult to find in the US but, thankfully, it's getting easier. We do seem to have to wait awhile for the newest products. I suspose it's the same in the UK for things from here. I'm happy I can see these products used so beautifully here on your blog.

  13. 2 lovely cards- will have to think about the weaving dies! I have the grand lg. label die and use it very often. Its a pity its been discontinued. Its a sun shine day today so will have to get the windows cleaned !!! xx

  14. Good morning Christina, I really like the strong colours which show the weaving dies off so well. Not sure I can handle these strips of paper as on a fairly good day I still can't control the movements of my hands, so will just gaze at them. Have a great day. X R os

  15. The cards are both lovely, and I especially like the rose one! I do have Grand Labels, and it's one of my favorites!

  16. Good Morning Christina :) The cards this morning are very nice. However, to be honest, I'm not a big fan of the Sue Wilson weaving dies. She has some other really nice die sets, but for me, this is not one of them. Thank you though for sharing your Christina Touch in using these dies. Enjoy a lovely day. Big Hugs.

  17. Two beautiful cards....the weaving turned out really nice
    I can see this style in many colors.
    Well done Sue

  18. Both cards are gorgeous and I love the colors. Sue Wilson's dies are awesome but pricey and can't get them too much in the US>

  19. Wow! Christina, those cards are AMAZING, love them.
    Now!! do I "need" those Dies or do I wait to see what Sue's new ones are like???
    Decisions, decisions.
