Festive Collection

Hi bloggers!  I have long been fascinated by the look of all things 3D, especially when it comes to crafting!  This post is dedicated to showcasing the new 3D Fireplace die set.  Shown here, you can see just how realistic the fireplace looks.  The die set comes with a number of items that can be used to build up the scene and add detail to your festive cards and projects.  While the die has been specifically designed to be used in a 3D manner, you can easily nip away the tabs and just use it on a flat card as a regular fireplace, but I think you will have more fun when you add the dimensional detail to it!  The die cut will fold flat for posting too so now worries there.  Leave me a message on this post if you would like a chance to win this one.  I will be back at 6pm  for the last post of the day.  All for now, Sue x

Oh Sue, this is magical. The festive season is a beautifully but tastefully decorated fire surround, and I love what you've done designing this die and the inspiration you have shared. I'd forgotten I'd seen this in the previews, what a beautiful reminder, thank you xxx

Bente Sørflaten said...

Dragonsnap2 said...

Another one that I wasn't sure about when I saw the preview, even though I like 3D cards. Having seen what you've done with it though, I'm converted and it's on the shopping list. I do sometimes have a problem visualising what they'll look like when I just see a die.

Sue, you have brought back childhood memories of hanging the stocking at Christmas, the scene looks so real. I'm sure children will love a card like this.
Rosemarie, pkease don't worry about these tests, it's best that they check everything out and can then go forward to making you better. We will support you through this just as you support rveryone else. One for all and all for one, as they say.
Hugs to all.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I absolutely adore this fireplace and I love that it folds flat for postage - you really do think of us, don't you. I have several ceramic fireplaces that take a tea light and come out every Christmas. I would love to be able to make this one so that I could share my fireplaces with my friends. The little extras - candelabra, mantel clock, stocking & wreath are so sweet and I have already mentally assigned them to a shadow box card as well.

Rosemary - sorry your time at the hospital was upsetting but don't worry about the tests; doctors just love tests to rule out everything before deciding what is actually wrong :-)

CCM said...

Hi Sue,

This day is getting better and better!So much fun (for us, for you it was a lot of work). You are spoiling us with all these new amazing set of dies. You thought about everything: Christmas stockings, a wreath … all these details make the scene so real.

Cannot wait to see what other delights you have in store for us.

Rosemary – So sorry you have to do more tests. I know is not fun but it is better to check out everything than to be sorry later. Hope the results will be good. Like Pam said, we are here for you.
Elaine – Fingers crossed for John’s CT scan.

Have a great day everyone.

The possibilities are great and not just for Christmas I think - how about father's day cards - without the stockings and wreath though eh?

Thank you so much for your daily inspiration Sue.

Well, you've gone and outdone yourself yet again Sue with this gorgeous die set! It is adorable, so warm and inviting and so reminiscent and evocative of a cold winters night.....would be perfect for many occasions, not just Christmas, and i can envisage your little cat die sitting close to that lovely fire, warming itself as it snows outside:-) i have longed for a fireplace die with stockings hanging waiting to be filled with goodies and now you have been kind enough to provide me with one:-) Thanks Sue, you always have your finger on the pulse, such a clever and innovative idea!

To My Wonderful Dear Friend Sue,
This Is A Extremely Impressive Die That Can Be Used. In So Very Many Ways
One Way I Would Make Like A "Faux Window" To Go Over The Fire Place Also Before
Placing The Window In Place, I Would Stamp A "Christmas Tree" Add A Touch Of Diamond Sprinkle
Place Acetate Into The Window Frame, Cut The Window Down The Centre, So The Window Can Be Opened
Another Die I'm Hoping To See On A Video Tutorial.......
Sue Take Great Care
Sue, Lots Of Love Also Huge Hugs 🤗

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
I'm late again! Sorry!
This is a lovely scene you have created . You have brought a room to life and have only used card , Dies and colouring materials! Quite an achievement!
It's so homely - it's difficult to judge but could this set or some of it be used behind your door/ window Dies as a Christmas Card? As I say hard to judge until you see the sizes.
Pat L - great to know that Sarah is having such a lovely holiday in Florida! If anyone deserves it - Sarah does! The family too. They are in Florida , your friends are in Barbados and you are left at home in your Nurse's Uniform! Never mind such is life sometimes! Sending you a hug though!
Yvonne - so pleased about Dillon - and still impressed by your early posting!

Norah McPhee said...

Good evening Sue and the Wilsonettes,
Oooo Sue, this just needs that big man in the red suit to make an appearance. What a great idea and from my wee brain, what about wee girls and boys dolls houses, they can now have a proper fireplace in it as long as they make sure that the fire is out before Santa makes his appearance down the dollies chiimney as we don't want him getting a burnt bum. Oh boy could I go back in time here Sue and make up some lovely things with you dies for my old dolls house. Thank you flower for setting that wee Norah out to play although having said that, I'm not much bigger now, hee hee hee.
Well we have had every kind of weather up here today and some of it just not nice at all. My friend is going down south for his brother in laws funeral on Saturday so said that he was taking down clothes that he didn't wear, so I spent last night going through Rory's wardrobes and got at least one bag of brand new clothes that he is never had on his back and today I have spent it going through mine leaving a trail of destruction in its wake. I went up to my friends house with 6 black bags full of clothes, shoes, belts and even some make up for those poor folk left with nothing after that horrific fire. O.H. doesn't know why I would put make up in the bag, but not all women are like me and wear nothing. Some women like to put their face on and at times like this, putting their face on is a way for them to combat their grief and put on a make believe front, well that's what I think anyway, he might be right, I might just be being stupid but at least I have tried. His car is going to be stowed as he has 3 bags already and his new friend was giving him things to take down as well, so we think both the back seat and the front will be chockablock with items. I said to him earlier that I hoped he was travelling light because there wouldn't be any room for anything else, ha ha ha.
Sending hugs to all the Wilsonettes, I hope that tomorrow is a better day for some that need it,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah ( Glenochil)
