New Release Die Blog Launch-- Noble Dies

Hello crafters!  Time for my autumn die release blog launch!  I have the next four days filled with multiple posts showing off my latest collection.  As always, I am giving away a set of each of the new dies and you only have to leave a comment to be included in the drawings.  I will announce the winners on Wed. Sept 16th so that will give you plenty of time to have a look at all the posts!  First up are my newest Noble Dies.  I cannot tell you how many emails I have received asking me to do a set of large piercing dies.  Well large it is!  These sets are as big as I was able to make them and still fit through the A4 cutting machines!  Shown here, you can see that you will be able to make nice large frames and because they are double pierced, you will have the detail on the inside and outside of each frame!  There are both Double Pierced Squares and Rectangles sets as you can see from the packaging below, but you won't get a sense of the size until you see them in person, I promise!  leave me a comment to be entered in the drawings for either of these sets.  I will be back at 12 noon for the next post, hope to see you then!  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue, fabulous card and fantastic dies, I have the ruler to do this but I don't use it a lot I find it a bit of a faff so these are ideal you really are a star.

June said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, oh wow such a beautiful card but the new dies, you are so good and kind to us Sue, we ask and you shall provide, what more could we ask, you know what us crafters like and your pierced edges are the bees knees, I would love to win the rectangle ones, mind you ever one else does too so I best get in the queue.

It is a great day today with our Queen becoming the longest reigning monarch ever, what a fantastic achievement to hold. As you are our Queen of craft Sue.

Enjoy Wednesday, stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Clare W said...

GM Sue. Fantastic! Easy perfect piercing at last for me with no wobbly bits! They are on my need list no question. Also love the HB die shown in your card.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hello Sue & WW,
Oh me, oh my, I want them both! How is a girl to keep up? Lol
Eager to see the rest of the launch. It's all so exciting!
I certainly say "I want, I want, I need" a lot on this blog. Very selfish, I am!
Rebecca in Colorado
Ha, just realized I read your post and went straight to the dies without even looking at the card. I see now that it is quite a lovely one! Here I am "wanting" that luscious "Happy Birthday" die as well.

Jan.moogie said...

Woohoo Sue gorgeous card and a chance to win some dies you truly spoil us. This first set of dies is a must have to anyone like me who cannot get their paper piercing even and straight. Thank you so much hugs xxx

Fantastic news and dies, definitely need these x

Rosalind McLellan said...

Hello Sue

Such a good idea. I am looking forward to what else you have for us.


CraftySuetoo said...

Good morning Sue. Gorgeous card, love it! Wow - pierced edges without going wonky, stabbing myself, getting to the end and finding it doesn't match up (or is this just me?)- these dies are going to be a staple in many of our craft stashes. My daughter asked me last night what I would like for my birthday, she suggested a spa day but now I know what I'm going to ask for - the pierced edge dies. Will have to wait until tonight to check the rest of your posts as we're still not allowed internet access for personal use at work. Have a fabulous day. Sue XXX

BridgetCG said...

Hello Sue, thank you for listening to the requests, as these would be perfect for so many cards, can't wait to see what else is coming. Love the card you have made, which I think includes another new one? Have a great day, will try keep up with the posts. Bx

Morning Sue, another stunning card. Just so Lovely!

Anonymous said...

Morning, Sue, you are so generous! Another few days of lusting ahead - starting right now. Have looked these out and as you say, BIG - would love them, but after loads of trying have finally got the piercing sussed so is it - for me - a cheat or not? Think not, is the answer!! Perfection looms, and with little effort oooh woweee!
Lovely card, like the shadowed sentiment and pretty floral embellishment.

hazel young said...

Brilliant idea as i have dexterity problems and arthritis. These will enable me to get the pierced look without the effort and pain. Gorgeous card Sue xx hazel

crossstitchmarg said...

Wow Sue an amazing card, and the dies are great, I'm not good at paper piercing these will be a great substitute.
Seriously though there are a lot of dies in each pack, and will looks great matting and layering with them and making frames.
I'd love a set.
Maggie in Solihull

rosiejt said...

Granny M said...

I have just ordered a precision probe to do piercing, but these dies will save so much time and be much more accurate than me trying to do it. More to spend money on though, as I can't resist your beautiful designs Sue!

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Fabulous dies. I have always struggled to get the piercing straight whenever I try to emulate you - now this won't be a worry. All I'll have to do is run it through my eBosser and - voila perfect piercing!! Thank you so much for listening to us. The squares are a must have!
Love the card as well and looking forward to the rest of the launch. Love Alison xxx

Clai01 said...

Hi Sue
many Congratulations on another super gorgeous collection of dies.
The piercing dies look absolutely fantastic and I especially love the squares if I had to choose a favourite ? as I make more square cards but if a secret Santa got me the rectangles for Christmas I'd be very happy ha!
looking forward to the next few days and Autumn just got better. x

Craftetter said...

Fantastic - going to make life a lot easier. John Lockwood told me about these dies a few weeks ago when I did a workshop with him locally to me using your Angel 2015 die. These are definately "must haves".
Hugs Elaine xx

Love Val in Spain x

Ann said...

What a brilliant idea. I love the pierced edges but have difficulty with the task as my fingers are not as nimble as they were. These are going to be my birthday present to myself. Well done Sue. These are sure to be a winner(as I hope I will be too). Keep up the good work Sue you are an inspiration to all us crafters. Love Ann

Elaine Sabey said...

Good Morning Sue
Wow! I love the effect that the piecing has on a card so glad you have designed these dies, they give such a professional look.

Love Elaine x

Jan Caven said...

Hi Sue
These dies are so useful as I can't cut straight at all , so will be high on my wish list
Love Jan x x

Sandra Holmes said...

Brilliant!! Just what I have been waiting for. Always love your style and try the pierced edge whenever I can with varying degrees of success. This will make the job sooooo much easier.

SueJ said...

A really gorgeous card Sue. The new dies look fantastic and I'm sure will fly off the shelves. Looking forward to your other posts.

Rosemarie said...

Morning Sue. Exactly what we need, brilliant, can't thank you enough. I love pierced edges but with arthritis in my hands it is quite hard going. These dies are the answer. The card is beUtiful too. See you later.

Love Rosemarie x x

Ecco of Sheffield said...

Morning Sue
Fantastic!!!!! I cannot thank you enough for producing these dies. They are just what is needed.
I cannot wait to see the actual size. Like many others my freehand cutting skills are terrible and sometimes it's like cutting the legs of a bar stool where you finish with a footstool.

See you at 12.00noon

To all in pain and suffering today I hope your day gets better. To everyone please take care and stay safe.

Diane said...

Hi Sue
What a pretty card today and how wonderful a new set of dies. These will be really useful Sue and will save so much time. Thank you.
I found the Papertiere shop in Aberdeen yesterday - hubby took me there on our way to visit a castle - what a fab shop. He was amazed at your die collection and how useful some of them were! Thank you for sharing this lovely card and collection with us.
Love Diane G xxx

Helen Bell said...

Carol Clarke said...

Morning Sue

Stunning card and what a great idea Pierced Frames these are a god send

Cdteach said...

What a simple but great idea. Who'd have thought that what initially looks like a set of basic squares or rectangles would prove to be so decorative or useful.
Thanks for giving us yet another chance to win some of your amazing dies.


Chris Curry said...

WOW. What a great idea. I look forward to seeing more samples, and trying these dies out!! Thank you Sue. Xx

The sizes of these are great, perfect for both small and large cards and projects. They're both on my birthday/christmas list :)

Marianne's Craftroom said...

Such useful dies, I love pierced and stitched dies and these are so big. Fabulous card too

hettygarlick said...

Lovely card and what useful dies to have. I do piercing with a ruler, but I find it quite slow and fiddly, and I don't always get it right! To have a die that does it perfectly is wonderful.

auscrafts said...

very useful dies love pierced edges but without all the effort

Sue from Wiltshire said...

These will make life a lot easier for finishing with one of your famous borders as not all of us are adept with a ruler and piercing tool.
They are great thanks.

Hi Sue,

Two oh-so useful sets of dies and 10 of each too - wonderful!...and an absolute godsend to those of us with dexterity problems as you will see from the comments...I'm going to go for the squares first as I'm hoping they'll mix and match nicely with my Basic and Grand sets

Love the card too...


Scottydog said...

Thank you Sue, these will be so, so useful, a staple part of everyone's craft room. A must have me thinks!

TOB said...

Hi Sue, Beautiful card and simply must have dies. My wonderful hubby said something really silly the other day as I was browsing through your new dies(on a website) he said "are there any of Sues dies you would like" I looked at him and we both laughed, Silly question "I suppose you NEED them all" and that's the problem I do need them all.Bank Manager won't allow it so will order them as I can.
Have a good day Sue.Hugs to all.

Another gorgeous card and more new dies - oh dear I just can't keep up, lol.

rolfi said...

Good morning Sue,
great useful Noble dies!!!
This is the solution for my layering cards!!!
I always use my "Guillotine" for that and it makes problems because everytime cutting is imprecise and the amount of sizes in your collection is fantastic.
My favourites are the square dies.
Rolf xxx

Yvonne G said...

Morning Sue
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh. As soon as I saw these new dies they jumped straight to the top of my want/need/just got to have/PLEASE LET ME WIN list. Pure genius, as are all of your dies but these are double no triple pure genius.
This card is stunning and as always I just cannot put into words how wonderful you are.
So excited about this launch and will be watching the clock for the next few days with the sole purpose of checking out all your new creations.
Thank you so much Sue x

Theresa - yes I'm freeview as well. I do watch on my laptop but was curious. My recliner was well reclined for most of the afternoon/evening x

Lorraine - I know what you mean by pressure. Having said that I think they feel the pressure more when purchasing cards to give to me. I am a little concerned that you are under the impression that I am mischievous. Please do not think I am like you. I am an incredibly sensible, avoid any trouble kind of a girl with a reputation to uphold. Is this not obvious from my comments - lol. Ally Pally is fast approaching - 19th and 20th September. Two weekends of Sue - what more could a girl want. Hochanda this weekend and Ally Pally next. Such a shame you won't be there. Someone needs to take you in hand and teach you some decorum and I feel I could be just the person. Having said that I don't think a weekend would give us nearly enough time to achieve a satisfactory result which would avoid causing distress to the general public if you were allowed to mix with them x

'P' in Wales - thanks for the heads up. Let's keep our fingers crossed they get there act together x

Maureen and Lynda - my reclining went well x

Fluffycat - feel better soon x

I'll be back at 12 for my next fix

Crafty hugs

Littlelamb said...

Excellent dies. Thank you so much Sue. Just what we need. Love today's card as well.

Good morning Sue, A stunning card and lovely dies,see you at 12 noon, Take care Jane B.

Evis M said...

Hi Sue.
These dies are going to be so useful.
Evis M.

Lesley Thomas said...

Wow, Sue, you have stunned me with the first two sets! Of course, I want them both!
I do hope they aren't goint to be exclusive to Hochanda, cos I can't buy from them, which peeves me no end. (they wont recognise my Irish address).

Elizabeth Beal said...

Hi Sue & Lovely Wilsonettes...Wow! What a lovely surprise to see this charming card & the beginnings of your new launch, looking forward to seeing the stunning cards you are sure to grace us with over the next four days, love the colour of the roses EF & the flowers are so pretty & delicate. Sue I have pre-ordered these piercing dies so please DO Not Include My Name For The Drawing Of These 2 Sets, if I was lucky enough to have my name chosen then I would have to ask you to go through the whole ‘RIGMAROLE’ (I won’t tease you Rebecca; Lol; it means ‘going through a lengthy & complicated procedure’) of putting the set back in to be redrawn. But I will say that you are simply magnificent to listen to the requests of your Wilsonettes & yippee have you done us proud, I like a challenge but I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to possess something that would make piercing a more viable option for me.

LORRAINE; hope you are well my friend, I’m okay thank you for asking, the garden implements are safely locked away from me; Lol; I’m just rather drained going back to work. My doc says it would be better for me to give up work but until he says ‘I’VE GOT TO’ then I shall keep going for as long as I can, after all no wages, no CE SW goodies. Mr B helps me out when I need a new machine etc but he says buying the dies is down to me which is fair enough. Lauren & Hannah are well thank you, H will be 3 on April 1st; no joke & what was I thinking of; Lol; & Lauren will be 13 next Thursday. I have decided that pouncing, with excited anticipation, on the postie delivering your SW goodies is solely your privilege in fact I would go as far to say that it is your PATENT & your exclusive right; Lol; We had to have a post-box fitted outside on the wall when Lauren suddenly out of the blue decided, if we were out, she was going to chomp on anything that came through the letterbox in a brown-ish envelope/package; so needless to say the only way I could pounce on the poor unsuspecting postie was if I was to park my carcass in a chair out the front between 11am – 3pm, (but not in a bikini, one look at my also anaemic torso would have him take flight & he’ll never deliver here again; Lol). Not feasible so I totally must resign the Lorraine/ Rebecca club EPOP (Excitedly Pouncing On Postie), sorry girls perhaps others can join so you can all grace us with hilarious comments I so love to read x x x

Thank you MAUREEN x LORRAINE x LYNDA x (hope I haven’t left anyone out) tools are safely locked away from me) Lol x x x

DIANE; hope you & ur daughter doing ok x x x NORA; Hope you have recovered from the onslaught x x x FLUFFYCAT; hope you are feeling better today my friend x x x WHEELY BAD; thank you for the lovely story on Billy glad you clarified my momentous senior confusion on the other half of him; Lol x x x REBECCA; thank you for sharing the lovely story of your gt grandmother & I wish you luck with your search x x x

LYNDA; my friend sorry to hear you were poorly with migraine & I sincerely hope you are now fully recovered. Ps. Young lady? Oh boy are you my Friend for life, perhaps you can come along & convince the kiddies that I’m only 21 + VAT, you’d have a full time job though; Lol x x x

YVONNE G; I’m intrigued as to how you got to sit in a chair & be waited on hand & foot; my kind of party; Lol you must have looked all coy & batted your eyelids at them doesn’t work for me even when I sit there trying to look beautiful & making slight gestures with my glass or plate; Lol anyways a friend once said to me make sure you rest, forget the housework it will be there next year (in month of Feb), Hmm I may be okay but I think the house is likely to get up & & take a hike to pastures new. Hope you’re feeling better & well rested x x x

I must close now & see you all later thank you Sue & sending Love ‘n’ (((HUGS))) to you & all the lovely Wilsonettes Beth B x x x

Hello Sue,

I am one of those people who was asking you to make these dies,
I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to see them.

In fact, confession time now, I've pre-ordered both - because I just couldn't choose.
I just know these are going to be so successful.
Love Brenda XXX

Gill said...

I love these layered dies - so versatile for bases, frames etc.
And instant piercing!

CHERYL Brown said...

Helloooo Sue,

Oh you are such a sweetie, spoiling us once again with the chance to win one of your fabulous new dies.
Oh they are gorgeous and will be so handy for those of us with not so dexterous hands and fingers. I can see they are going to be so popular and will be flying off the shelves of every craft company in the country. Sure to be a sell out.
Love & hugs

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
Wonderful card, I suspect the background is another one of your brilliant techniques, but can't make out how you've done it.
Those dies are very useful, doing away with the manual piercing to a large extent. I wonder how many crafters are as nifty as you with this technique - I know I'm not.
Thanks for giving us the opportunity to win one of your new dies, you are generous indeed.
Hugs, Rose

Crafty Cruiser said...

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a lovely card and I know the new pierced dies will be flying off the shelves. You have made a lot of people very happy.

Yvonne & Beth - feeling a bit muzzy today and there is definitely sandpaper in my throat but at least I seem to have stopped coughing. I haven't had a cold for years and hope I haven't passed it on to you or the other Wilsonettes :-)

Looking forward to 12 noon.

"Thank you Sue" for this chance to win a set of your dies! xx Love Karen xx Sending love and hugs to you Sue, your mom and family and to all our Wilsonettes who are in need xx Good luck everybody! xx

lilysmum said...

What a great idea Sue, can't tell you how many times I'be tried-and failed to accurately pierce a border!! A welcome addition to your ever inspiring collection. Keep up the hard work Sue, you are a blessing to us all! Hoping you are well, Theresa

Maureen Killen said...

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Top of the morning to you Sue and the lovely Wilsonettes!

What a surprise this morning to find the beginning of the new die launch- I was expecting our usual Wednesday card giveaway and was temporarily taken aback and rendered speechless, something that happens all too infrequently!
Firstly, what a lovely card, adore the new happy birthday die, but the star of the show just has to be the pierced rectangles. I know that I am not alone in having dreamed of such a die as I battled to get a perfect result with my piercing ruler- using your technique has made my attempts more consistent and I do enjoy the process of piercing, however, to have the opportunity to get perfect results every time is an utter godsend. I have admittedly over stretched my finances this past week, my bank account always haemorrhages on payday, but I couldn't resist pre ordering the rectangles and I cannot wait to receive them. You are a legend, who never fails to cater for our every crafting need, Thankyou xxx
Feeling a little rough today, I've had a throat and ear infection for five days now and it shows no sign of abating so my sympathies go out to fluffycat. In saying that, today's surprise has rejuvenated me no end.
Beth, glad to hear that you haven't came a cropper with a gardening based implement, I would seriously miss your witty anecdotes and what would all of those little cherubs do without your loving guidance. Being around the young keeps us sprightly and young at heart so the longer that you can do the better for your mental well being. The same can be said for animals, I don't think Gizmo would have lived to the age of 17 if we hadn't have had a succession of younger playmates for him- so Hannah being that much younger than Lauren must have a positive effect on her. You have a real incentive to keep working though if Mr B refuses to fund your SW addiction, fair enough, at least he can't pass comment on whether you actually need another die , card pack or embellishment:-)xxxx
Yvonne, my dear friend, it is with great regret that I cannot meet up with you at Ally Pally, you are so intuitive with your assessment of my uncontrollable propensity for debauchery- I could do with a firm hand at times and a strong moral compass and it appears that you could provide me with all of the above. You may be right though, unleashing me on an unsuspecting public may not be a good idea at this juncture, maybe with your careful guidance I could be trained before next years event and I could be trusted with the general public and our fellow Wilsonettes...are you up for the challenge?
Diane, I forgot to wish you luck with your daughters move to bonny Aberdeen, it's a beautiful city and I'm sure she will love it there- it's meant to be one of the sunniest parts of Scotland, then again, it doesn't have much competition now, does it? I hope that you are managing to busy yourself in her absence, it won't be long before mid term, be forewarned about the mountain of washing and ironing that will inevitably arrive with her though:-)
See you soon, at 12ishxxx

Love and crafty hugs,

Bejay Roles said...

Hi, Sue,
Goodness, what a great start for the new release. These dies are fantastic and so BIG!! Just what I need as I still haven't got around to buying the piercing ruler lol. With a set of these dies I would at least know that all my holes would line up and look just wonderful. The card is beautiful...especially the little butterflies and pale blue flowers :). Looking forward to all the other releases...and will be typing all my comments with my fingers crossed :). xx

Isabelle Noel said...

Wow, this die is very good idea.

Hello Sue,

This is the first time I have ever left a comment though I am a constant admirer of your cards. Thank you for designing yet another brilliant range of dies. I was thrilled to see the piercing sets so have already pre-ordered the square piercing set, just can't wait to receive it! But thank you for the chance to maybe win the rectangular set! Your cards are always masterpieces and your inspiration to us all is amazing. Have a wonderful day. x
