Beautiful new Dies

Do you want to make some gorgeous, quick and easy Christmas cards?  Have you seen all the beautiful new dies you can now get at Joan's Gardens.  I didn't time it, but I'm sure this card took less than 30 minutes to create.  I used a pretty blue pearl, textured card stock for the background.  The beautiful bell and border are some of the new Cheery Lynn dies that Joan now has.  The bell was die cut using  the "Bow and Bell" die (DL163).  The bell and bow are die cut as two separate pieces.  The border along the bottom is the new Cheery Lynn "Dancing Doily Lace Border" (DL134).  I used only a portion of it on my card because the die cut border is longer than my card.  The embellishment behind the sentiment is from the Spellbinders "Ironworks Motifs" die set.  The sentiment is from the JustRite "Christmas Trimmings" stamp set and was cut out with a Spellbinders oval Nestability then attached with dimensionals over the Ironworks motif.  The sentiment reads "May all the Blessings of the season fill your Heart and Home with Joy."  A few pearls were added to complete the card.

This bell could also be used for anniversary or wedding cards.  These new dies, from Cheery Lynn, are as beautiful as some laser cut designs that I remember were so expensive. Now you can create as many beautiful cards as you want using these great dies.  Even though this is a very delicate design, it popped right out of the die.  I know you will love designing with it.

I am looking forward to using some of the other new dies you will see at Joan's Gardens.  They are all so beautiful, it was hard to decide where to start.  I think I might use the delicate die cut Santa's Sleigh and border for my next card.  What are your favorite new dies that Joan recently posted?   Maybe you can help me decide where to start!

I love your card and I am waiting to get my order from Joan's so that I can play, which should be today. I would love to see what you do with the candle. Thanks for all the great cards.

Selma, perhaps you can help me. I wish to post my HOPE card to Joan's Gardens Card Challenge. Her instrux state it will close THURSDAY at 6 a.m. and the collection is already closed today - WEDNESDAY. I see her date is incorrect.

But may I still upload my creation?

Selma, I am entranced with the beauty of your work. I love it all. I'm eager to see what you will do with the new Lacey Pumpkin Corner Flourish and the Princess's Garden Window Frame.
