New Find...

Happy Tuesday,

Today I am sharing a card made with a new range of dies I have found form Find It Media (from Holland)  I saw these dies at the Newbury craft show on Saturday and I had to add a few to my basket!

Today I have made this buckle style card using the Round Flower Frame however I only used a couple of dies in the set so there are more cards coming with this die!.

I cut the 2 outline dies three times in teal card then added the central section cut in ivory.  I arranged these in a buckle formation over a piece of embossed ivory card ( embossed with the Twinkle Stars embossing folder)  I shaded the edges with a new Ocean coloured die ink ( more news of that to follow later in the week!)

I threaded a lace ribbon through the buckles and added a spray of leaves shaded in the same ink.

I stamped the sentiment ( again with the ocean ink) onto the piece that falls from the centre punching a hole to make this into a tag.

A few layers of teal and ivory and a classic card is completed.

It seems that everyone really liked my Jelly baby ( I've named him sam) so I thought i'd share another image below!


it looks like he's counting down to something doesn't it?!? x

  12. Great card and fabulous dies. Not heard of this company but I do love browsing craft shops on the continent if I ever get the chance as you can often pick things up that are a bit different. The Netherlands is particularly good but unfortunately we don't always have time.
    Hope you have a great day.
    Happy crafting,
    D xx

  13. Very pretty. Isn't it funny how things fall into your basket when you're in a craft shop or at a craft event? Happens to me too! xx

  14. Hi John

  18. Hi John,
    Beautiful card, I love buckle cards but have never made one, maybe I will give it a go today.
    Thanks for all the great inspiration,

  19. Morning John, great card. Not heard of this company so will have to check it out,

  20. Oh I like Sam and cant wait to find out why he is counting down - is Christmas coming early?
    Lovely card this morning John and nice to find something a bit different.

    Love and hugs
    Helen xx

  21. Really lovely card. The die is so pretty.

  22. Morning John, I love the Find It dies, and this card is gorgeous !!
    You are such a Teaser John, Sam could surely give us a hint !!!!!
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  23. I guess that's the benefit (or danger!) of going to craft shows - you always seem to spot ranges you might not have found otherwise.

    Loving the way you are now able to mix and match products from different companies. Looking forward to the "big reveal" at the end of the week.

  24. Eh up John
    I did wonder what you were going to do with those dies. Looks fab.
    So what colours are you going to have in each bag of John's Jelly Babies?

  25. Love the card and I will go and look up this company OOH Jelly Baby Sam is really teasing us I cannot think what the announcement is going to be I wonder if it'll involve being able to see you on tv again....?

  26. Hi John,Just love this card,really really nice. I think Sam is a little rascal and a real tease.Stay healthy and happy Lots of Love Barbara D xxx

  27. Hi John. I can understand why you like these dies so much, they are really striking and have made a great card. I don't think Sam can really be a jelly baby otherwise I am sure you would have eaten him by now! Can't you give us a little clue as to what he is counting down to???


  28. Hi John this is a stunning card those dies are gorgeous. Sam is so cute. Your count down matches our countdown to our daughter's wedding. Exciting time ahead. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  33. I have never heard of these dies but I already love them and this card is stunning. I love jelly babies but the suspense is almost too much.

  34. Hello John,
    Nice to meet you Sam! Whatever have you been eating!
    Lovely card John. Just got home today from A week in Anglesey . Commented as and when I was able.
    Glad I'm back in good time!! Lol!
    Love Myra x

  35. John this card is stunningly beautiful, and a fab
    buckle card. I love those dies and the colour combo.
    Sam the jelly baby is adorable too, i am so curious as
    to what the countdown is for.
    I am just going to have to be patient.lol

  36. Hi John, a really lovely card, great dies. I am very curious about the countdown. Bx

  37. Hello John,
    Love the card today, it's just gorgeous.
    I've gone off you big time though. I need to know now - not in 4 days as my BP and heart won't stand it ha ha.
    Maureen x

  38. Hi John
    Lovely card and very pretty die set. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the rest of the set. Now I've changed my mind about your jelly baby tease - now think it's the countdown until your new release of Christmas stamps, maybe even on tv?!

  39. Beautiful card John. I don't remember seeing these dies on Saturday. I did buy a lot of things though so probably wouldn't have bought anymore. I went home without the card I bought from John at Limetree so went back and caught him just as he was packing up. I was lucky.

  40. Gorgeous card John. Look forward to seeing more of these dies x
