2017 Autumn Die Release Blog Launch --Industrial Chic Swirl

Hello there bloggers!  Welcome to the final die release of 2017.  There are 29 dies on offer this release and I will be showcasing each of them over the next nine days with either three or four posts per day (a bit different than previous launches).   I will be showing a single new die set per post and as always,  holding a drawing for one lucky person per post to win that die set!  Leave a comment on the post and the winners will be drawn and announced on Nov. 17th.  Again, I ask that you please sign your comments in a manner that there will be no confusion as to whose name it is when announced (ie.,  crazy crafter from Colchester, or cat lovin' crafter, or just some other funny alias you devise yourself!)  I only have one set of each die to give away so I don't want any one disappointed with two people trying to claim it!  Please feel free to leave a comment on each and every blog post, but only one per post please.
I am starting with one of my favourite new collections called Industrial Chic.  I have let my inner grunge go a bit and I think I have come up with a lovely collection of very easy to use dies, great for those pesky male cards or anyone that enjoys the sort of steampunk flair.  Starting the launch today, I am showcasing the I.C. (Industrial Chic) Swirl.  It works great in any corner and can easily be turned into a pretty sort of grunge look as well.  If this one floats your boat, please leave me a comment to be entered into the drawing to win this one.  The next post will be online at noon today for your inspection.  All for now, Sue x

Very different from your usual style Sue. Not into steam punk myself but I can see the uses for male cards

So lovely corner die! It's grunge but not too much! Perfect for men but also for female, I think, because it has a lovely feel! Great card using this!

My poor (literally) old hubby groans every time I mention your name and the words "new release" in the same breathe. I absolutely adore these new steam punk themed dies (and a good few that are not from that theme too lol.

Hello Sue,
Fabulous die and beautiful card. I love steampunk.
Pam, hope all went well at the hospital today.
Elaine, thinking of Andrew and Mary.
Donita, hope you get power soon. My pet name at the local shop when I lived at home (with mam and dad) was Lol, because I used to go every day for a 1d ice lolly!!
Pat L, how's the decorating coming along?
Yvonne, take it easy but nice to see you.

Can't stay, must get flying on my broomstick!!!

I wasn't sure...we have had Steampunk in stamping here for a long while. My husband likes these so there we go...masculine cards. While I like your traditional cards best, variety is the spice of life and my cards certainly are all over the place style wise. I like to think something for everyone. Is that a new flower I spot?
Donita, come out of the dark and Pam hope your appointment went well.
I am happy. My computer is up once more.Tried to post several times and it would drop or disappear somewhere. Who thought new carpet would be such a hassle? I have barely noticed it with the house topsy turvy.

Lovely card. Great die set. AliJ Sussex

Janice Brummett said...

This die is a must as is the Dream die. Colors are perfect! Want-no, need these dies.

Eunice (Canada) said...

Wow I really like this die! I usually don't take a fancy to these but Sue you have definitely changed my mind!

Latenight SandyH said...

My brain usually switches off when I hear "Steampunk". Industrial Chic Sue Wilson style is something else. This card is super and like a number of others I can hardly wait to see a video of you making it. I can see this die being useful all round and the virtual scissors are already snipping away. Love that background.

Take care everyone.

redfox said...

Well I never imagined you doing steampunk designs! But I'm totally loving it! As always you've obviously put a lot of thought into these designs and I've got a feeling there are going to be lots of "I need these" comments! Looking forward to seeing what comes next. God bless

Maria Illsley said...

This is definitely different for you Sue. But I like this die xx

How fun that you went with the industrial look this time around because these dies are perfect for masculine projects or anytime I want an artsy look. This die is gorgeous and would look amazing in metallic.

Karenladd said...

I've been looking over your newest die release and am so thrilled to see the Industrial Chic designs. Love the vintage look and the way they can be combined with so many other dies I already have for a fabulous Steam Punk look!
