April 2017 Die Release Blog Launch

Hello there my crafty friends!  Here we are at the start of the April die release blog launch!  We have a full week of previews for you, with four posts per day so plenty of chances to win a set of the latest dies as well!  Leave a comment on any of the posts that you would like to be entered into the drawings to win.  Please, however, I ask that you make your name stand out a bit from anyone else's by adding a city name (Jan K in London) or numbers to it (ie. Sandy P.123), or just a funny alias (furrycat lover in Manchester).  I only have one set of each of the dies to giveaway and that will just eliminate the issue of having more than one person claim the winning die.  I will do the drawings and announce the winners on April 27th.
We are starting out by showcasing the new Stained Glass Collection.  Shown here, the Hummingbird Stained Glass is a lovely design that will lend itself to so many techniques.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.  The next post is scheduled for 12 noon today.  Hope to see you back here then.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue,

A fantastic start to your new die release. Congratulations!

I have fallen in love with these 'stained glass window' dies. What a beautiful card, so clean, so delicate looking. I love those soft colors, make my heart melt.

Thanks for sharing and giving us a chance to win these beauties.

Good luck everyone!

Good AFternoon Sweet Sue, wow what a clever idea to create these special dies, love it and the colour choice to. hugs Shirleyxx

Debbie said...

Oh this is so beautiful! The softness of the colors you used with this gorgeous die is inspiring! I like the idea of being able to make smaller cards as we do here in the USA. I could see using this die in so many ways, including my scrapbook with my garden pictures.

Good afternoon Sue,

Gail Chase said...

Love this card, simple yet lovely. And I would love this die. Hummingbirds are one of my favorite things. Gail

Viki Banaszak said...

This is so pretty! It has been a while since I have seen a stained glass card.

Suzzette Yandle said...

WOW! This die is different from you. What can get better than Stained glass, hummingbirds and flowers? Reminds me of the days when I used to do stained glass. Using your Stained Glass collection will be much easier on my hands and fingers than the regular stained glass craft. I always seemed to get slivers of glass in my fingers and burns on my hands. I always love the look of anything in Stained glass. Looking forward to more of your Stained Glass Collection. You card is lovely!!!

Craftysusan said...

Lovely idea for a die Sue. I love the colours on this card too. xx

Hi Sue
What a wonderful start to your new release, the stained glass humming bird looks amazing

It's our 45th wedding anniversary today, although we did celebrate it last night as we were travelling home today, and the first thing I did when we got home was log into your blog, that's how special you are. Had a lovely time in Spain but it's good to be home

Love and hugs to everyone

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

Yeah!!! Release day is finally here. I've been excitedly awaiting to see what fabulous creations you have come up with and I have to say you started it off with a bang. The new stained glass dies are so different than we have seen before and the card you have created is just stunning. It reminds me of the tiny hummingbirds buzzing around the flowers in the garden on a lovely summer day. The colors you have used are so soft and alluring.

Congratulations on a wonderful start to your launch.

Beverly from Maryland, USA

Hello
I was so looking forward to your Stained Glass Collection and I am not disappointed, your card is gorgeous!
It reminds me of sitting on the deck of the home of my friend in Bailey, Colorado gazing at these fantastic little creatures hovering to sip the sugared water put out to attract them. This is going to be a very popular die!

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue and everyone

What a great start to the new die launch. I saw this card at Ally Pally and was blown away by it. It is sooo pretty. Hummingbirds are so tiny and delicate, who would not smile to receive this card. It's so sophisticated.

Probably no one will see my comments ( except maybe Pam) as there are so many comments today. Let's hope this continues.....

Maria, definitely have to arrange to meet up in September, and I hope you'll be a happy bunny again. Yes, I missed June as I arrived later than I'd planned. I hope you enjoyed using Jacobean EF. I bought the swirling hearts and its gorgeous. I hope you bare ok.

Pam, yes thanks my shoulder has settled a bit, I have physio tomorrow then back at consultant next week. I hope you are feeling a little better.

Izzy, glad you found your Fitbit.

Myra, thanks for your comments, yes hopefully by September I should be good as new. Well the shoulder, not the re of me!

Love Helen xxx

Hi sue

This is totally different from your usual dies but I love it it's so pretty and I love paper piecing it's so relaxing but I could equally do this with stains and gloss to look like a stain glass window.
