Seasons Greetings

Hi bloggers!  The final post of the day is for one more of the beautiful sentiment dies; Season's Greetings!  This one is a full sized sentiment so it makes a gorgeous focal element, don't you think?  It is easily nipped apart in case you want to use the words at the top and bottom of your card or side by side rather than having a stacked sentiment.  There is a lot of versatility in this one plus it is just such a pretty font with the added detail of the holly leaves and easy readability.  If this set appeals to you, just leave a comment on this post and you might just have your name drawn out as the winner!  That's it for day six but there is still more to come.  I will be back at 6am for day number seven!  All for now, Sue x

Hi crafters and welcome back!  This post is dedicated to showcasing the Natalie die set.  Natalie is a little larger than Carol but looks great when layered up (you may have noticed her on the previous card sample.)  While there are holly leaves surrounding the outside edge, it is still rather subtle and I feel could easily be used year round.  If not the outside, certainly the inside dies could with their almost ray like centre, a gorgeous way to seat any sentiment.  Is Natalie the one you would like to win?  You know the drill by now.  One more post for today and it is coming your way at 6pm.  All for now, Sue x

Hello all!  Let me introduce Carol to you.  This die set has the feel of flowing snow drifts in winter with a snowflake inspired  centre yet nothing is particularly overtly Christmassy about her.  She looks great done in any colour and works so well with other dies (I just love the Frosty Snowflake corner with her, don't you?)  Let me know what you think of Carol, won't you?  Don't forget to use the Pinit  Pinterest button too!  It has been placed at the bottom of each blog post for you.  At 3pm the next post will appear.  All for now, Sue x

Hi bloggers!  I would like to show off some of the new Frames and Tags category starting with Angelina.  Show here, you can see what a lovely focal element this die makes.  I have tried to design with multi purposes in mind so these dies can easily be used year round rather than just for Christmas.  Add a few solidly Christmas styled dies and this one carries it off beautifully.  Angelina has been designed in three separate sections with two cutting lines so you can easily use whichever section you need.  I would love to know what you think.  A comment on this post would do the trick!  Next post will be here at noontime for your perusal.  All for now, Sue x

Let It Snow Mini Expression

Hi bloggers!  It is nice to see you back!  The final post for today is dedicated to the Let It Snow Mini Expression.  Show here, you can see just how lovely it works with the snowman, but it is equally at home with any of your Christmas cards too.  This die has a lovely swirly font but is still very easily readable too.  If this set is one you have your eye on, why not try to in it!  Just leave your comment on this post to be entered into the drawing.  Just don't forget to make your name memorable in some way (funny alias, etc.)  so there is no confusion who the winner is!  We will be starting day six here tomorrow morning at 6am.  I hope you can join us then.  All for now.

Holly Jolly Christmas

Hi there my crafty friends!  Next up is a great sentiment to go with the snowman; Holly Jolly Christmas.  This sentiment is a larger styled sentiment, but you can see it works so well with the snowman for a great festive season card.  All the dies from today's posts have been designed to be mixed and matched for maximum results, your cards will be the ones in place of pride on everyone's mantle this year!  If you are wanting to enter your name into the drawing but are unsure how to do it, there are written instructions on the right hand side of my blog.  It really is very easy to do.  You know what they say, you have to be in it, to win it!  LOL   There is one more post for today and it will be online for your viewing at 6pm.  Don't forget to check back by the blog!  All for now, Sue x

Snowball Frame

Hi bloggers!  The next die set on offer is the Snowball Frame.  Shown here, you can see just how perfectly it goes with the snowman too.  You may have even noticed it during the previous post!  This set comes with three beautifully scripted sentiment dies that work perfectly with the snowman in particular and even with many other dies in this release.  you may have spotted the "Believe" die on the Believe in the Magic frame card sample yesterday.  Pop your comment on this post if this is one that you like and then I will return at 3pm with another offering.  All for now, Sue x

Build A Snowman

Good morning all and welcome to day number five of the Festive die blog launch.  We are starting out with this cute guy from our Build A Snowman die set.  I love snowmen, there are just so many fun ways to decorate them.  This set comes with a bunch of accessory dies such as a top hat, a woollen cap, scarf, signpost, shovel, broom, bow tie, buttons, and mittens to name just a few!  There are eighteen dies in all in this set!  The snowman himself has a cute stitched detail around him to add such nice interest.  I think this snowman appeals to young and old, I know I would love a card made with this set!  If this sort of whimsy appeals to you, just leave your comment on this post.  You might be a winner!  The next post will be along at noon today.  All for now, Sue x

Believe In The Magic Frame

Hi crafters!  The second of the two themed frames is the Believe In The Magic Frame set.  Shown here, you can see how lovely it is.  While I didn't use the sentiment that comes with the set on this particular sample, it fits neatly in the centre of the frame.  This die also can be easily cut into its different components for use.  The flying Santa and reindeer has been used numerous times in my Christmas sample cards already!  This set is also a very good set for making quick cards for your festive season.  It looks lovely with pixie powders or even a caught in crystal background as I have done here.  It is sure to be a big hit with any recipient.  Don't forget to add your comment to this post for the drawing.  Another day finished, but we aren't even quite half way through this launch.  Day number five starts here at 6am.  I hope you can join us back here then.  All for now,
Sue x

Twas The Night Frame

Hello again my crafty friends!  This is the first of two new themed frames; Twas The Night Frame.  This adorable scene with Santa dropping down the chimney is sure to delight the Christmas feel in all of us.  This frame can easily be used in different sections to create totally different looking cards as well.  The best thing about it though, is that you can create a really quick card such as the sample shown very easily as you have everything you need in a single die set.  Leave a comment if this one appeals to you.  The last post of the day is at 6pm.  All for now, Sue x

Christmas Robin

Hi crafters!  The second post today is to show off the Christmas Robin die set.  This was one of my favourites to use and I think the sample really shows off the beauty of this set as well.  In this set there are two birds (facing each other),  a large pine sprig and three pine cones together on one die (large enough that it isn't easy to lose)  The robins have beautiful detailed embossed areas which really bring them to life.  The three pine cones can be used with or without the pine sprig to add versatility to your crafting projects.  This is a real go-to set if you want to make unique and stunning Christmas cards.  You are not going to want to forget this post for your comments.  Remember, someone is going to win it, it might as well be you!  The next post is at 3pm today.  All for now, Sue x

Netted Star Background

Hi bloggers!  Welcome to the start of day number four.  We are showcasing the new Netted Star Background during this blog post.  This is a 5" background that has no cutting edge to you can give it whatever sized border you desire.  It is also expandable in that you can cut and move this die as it lines up perfectly with the previous cut area.  As shown here, I have made it into a rectangular shaped background.  It also looks so pretty with tiny pearls at all the star junctions!  Leave your comment on this post to be entered into this drawing.  The second post will be at 12 noon.    All for now, Sue x
