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

Wow, what a way to start your new launch, love the card and die. The background is superb and suits the die.
So looking forward to your takes on the new dies especially the Steampunk which is way out of your usual style, but I'm sure you have a few surprises waiting for us.
Lovely shows from Phil last night, he is such a funny hapoy man.
Elaine, good news that Andrew and Mary are doing well and that you slept better. Maybe your body is telling you to slow down a bit.
The decorating seems to be going well ladies, you are all doing so much better than me. Maureen I know you don't want to get paint on your clothes but wouldn't coveralls be more convenient and less distracting for George, poor lamb.
Marie, hooe it's moving day fir you,. If so, good luck, hope you get settled soon.
Helen Bell hope you are feeling better, gotta get you fit for this launch.
At hospital this afternoon to see Anaethetist pre op, fingers crossed I get through this time.
Enjoy the marathon folks, help yourself to my basket if hugs. Thinking of poorly and missing friends.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, wow Sue what a way to start the launch, I like the die, good luck everyone

Pam I reiterate all you have said above, and hope all goes well today at the hospital

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue.
So, you spoil us yet again with another brand new collection and an in site to what you enjoying working with.
I'd like to start by saying that steam punk, cogs and industrial types subjects have never been my styles but greatly admired the talents of those that bring these subjects to life, some have it some don't and I don't. So although I'll be admiring each post you show can I ask not to be included into the draw for this collection please, I'm not being rude or picky or ungrateful but I'd rather let someone have the chance of receiving these generous gifts that will put them to wonderful use rather than site in my die box and not see the light of day. Hope I cause no ill feeling or offence by being honest.
It's one of those things like your first sample that I get pleasure looking at, and greatly admire how they are put together.
I'm really looking forward to seeing the rest of your new collections and samples that go with each die.
Enjoy your day as much as we will Sue xxx

Nanny Joo Joo from sunny Scunny said...

Good morning Sue,

Wow! So very different from you, yet a hint of style to ‘grunge’. I can see this on more feminine cards too.

Have a good day.

WOW Sue you have come into my favourite thing and mixed it with my next favourite thing, steampunk and mixed media.

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
What a great start to your new collection launch! I'm not a big steampunk lover , but this I do like! I've also had a sneaky peek at the others in this section and have to say, you have changed my opinion! Great for masculine cards but also suitable for more feminine ones too. Looking forward to the next post.
Pam, hope things go well at hospital today x
Love and hugs to all, Alison ( crafty Alimecca) xx

Great card to start The Blog Run Sue, looking forward to the next one.

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Industrial Chics,

Perhaps still a little swirly for a male card, but I love this!!! It's so different from the classic Sue Wilson look, but it still looks distinctive and still has your DNA. I'm surprised that the word isn't plain but has an industrial look, too, and I never imagined the flower looking so exotic.
I'm so excited about this! Thank you for bringing this new look into being.
I had to look up steampunk. I pictured a kid with a lot of piercings sitting on a steamer trunk on the dock. Didn't realize it comes from setting fiction in the age of steam power, but with a futuristic sci-fi twist. I think of that movie Wild Wild West, set in the time just after the railroad connected the U.S. coasts, but the bad guy had all those diabolical mechanical contraptions.
My power is still off and there's no telling when it might come back on. At work, I filled up a 1.5 liter bottle, a quart jug and my water-filtering pitcher, and supplied myself with drinking water. My power has been off for more than 24 hours, but I grabbed a popsicle from the freezer, and it was still solid. Although just barely. Do you guys call them ice lollies? That name makes more sense. Popsicle must have been a brand name. Oh! You took the lolly, we took the pop. You took the ice, we took the sicle. Now they both make sense.
Best wishes for Pam and Marie today, and, as Pam said yesterday, anyone who's decorating.
Elaine, glad everyone, including yourself, had a wellness upswing.
Here's hoping PP and Helen Bell both feel better Tuesday.
So glad, Theresa, that your husband is tuned in to what makes you happy, and Pat L that your Platinum is on its way.
And thank you, Rose in Chester, for teaching us the proper attitude for buying dies, that we are worth it.
I'm thinking that when Pam puts out a basket of hugs, we don't have to limit ourselves to just onE. The worse you feel, seems like, the more hugs you need.
Love,
Donita

Crewe Trish said...

Hello Sue
I have been waiting with mixed feelings about this launch because like Stephanie I don't do steam punk it never looks right when I try it but this doesn't need to be grungy I see it as a beautiful background.
Pam good luck today and I echo your comments

Janice K said...

Good morning Sue,
I love the beautiful background you've created for this card, the colours are gorgeous. A lovely die with great 'snipability' possibilities. X

Dragonsnap2 said...

Fabulous card. I love the background, it really suits the die. I was really pleased to see your industrial dies this time. All those cogs are brilliant for the many men I make cards for who are into cars. Great start to the new release.
Hope all goes well Pam.
Hope everyone has the best day possible.

Really pleased to see something like this Sue, your inner grundge always inspires me and re cogs, well, they keep the old wheels turning!
Fantastic design. x

Scottydog said...

Morning Sue, I'm not really into steam punk so I'm hoping you will convert me during this launch & I'm certainly liking your first offering. It is feminine but not in the usual way, yet could be used on a male card. I love swirly dies anyway so feel this could be useful. Looking forward to the rest of the launch, I haven't looked at the previews except where an email has thrust your dies at me! Lol! Hoping to be converted!

Princess Pixie! said...

Morning Sue
Never been a fan of steam punk but with the 'Sue Take' these dies really are fantastic x
Not about much today so will have to do a catch up on the days posts this evening x

laura ann kempster said...

Morning Sue,

I love how this design marries up the elegance of a swirl with the masculine/grungy cogs. I could see this one getting a lot of use on my cards and scrapbook layouts!

Looking forward to seeing the rest of the collection!

Laura K, Bucks

Krafty Runner x said...

Hi Sue,

It's great to see you release your inner grunge!
I'm liking it, it's not too out there, that it could only be used on certain cards, but this is just the right side of beautifully different and not just for those pesky male cards.

Keep your funky groove coming!

Lorraine (Island girl) said...

The card is just up my street love it.

Barbara Gosden said...

Hi Sue
Like some of the others, steam punk is not my thing and I've been looking forward to seeing how you put your own spin on to these cog dies. I think this is the prettiest cog die I've seen and I love the background for this card. I did make a grungy cog card once because I wanted a card with a minion breaking out of the machinery!

TOB said...

Have waited a long time for your range of steampunk.I bought my first steampunk stamps quite a few years ago when Visible image weren't even on TV, and have loved them ever since. This is the most feminine cog dies that I have seen around. Its gorgeous and one for my list. Hugs xx Mad craftgirl

Littlelamb said...

Love this die Sue and everything about this card. Very useful for male cards I think. Hope all goes well at the hospital today Pam. Echoing your comments. Busy day so won't get here again until this evening. Hugs for those that need them today.

Brenda Lello said...

Hi Sue,
Lovely card. I agree this die would be great for pesky male cards, I can even see myself sniping bits off for a different masculine effect. It would work equally well using soft colours for female cards. Definitely a good investment.
Good luck with your new collection.
Hugs Brenda xxx

Hi Sue - well if this die is anything to go by then we are in for some unusual treats! So useful for male cards and also scrapbooking male pages. All I can say is WOW! Looking forward to next viewing. Sending best wishes

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
Just got in from night shift but had to look before going to bed. These dies are a perfect match to the loads steampunk CE stamps I own from a very long time ago! I love steam punk, so handy for the male cards but just as good for female by just using pretty colours! I love what you've done with this die (you've always done 'steampunk' brilliantly!). Looking forward to seeing what else you do with this launch.

Hi Sue
What a lovely start to the collection, Sue Wilso does steam punk but in the most tidy and clean way. Oh Sue I am looking forward to seeing you demo this as I know you don't do mess! Have you let out your inner grunge so much that we might see lots of ink and paint covering everything? You know I am teasing. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the collection and tge samples you have made.
Love Diane G xxx
Pam fingers crossed for today xxx

Good Morning, Sue
Whilst very different from your usual style I love this card and the Industrial Chic - Swirl.
I love the "rusty look" colours you have created in the background. It reminds me of the style of doodles my Mother liked to do!!
I think we are all looking for something a little different at times and this particular die is great and I would be happy to receive this card created with a pretty feminine colour scheme as well!!

Good Morning Sue. Beautiful dies this morning Sue. A lovely card and not just for the male species of the world. The colours say everything about your Autumn release. Someone is going to be very lucky. Good luck with the new launch Sue. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

Well, this is definitely Industrial Revolution from you - and gender-neutral too (very on-trend at the moment judging by all the newspaper articles I've been reading) and this first example is just the right side of grungy for me, love it!...and would love to know how you made the background too, so maybe you could showcase this card again on the blog after the launch?

Jackie Durrant said...

Good morning Sue and thank you for allowing us all the chance of winning one of your new collection over the coming week. The idea of combining steam punk and swirls is genius! Live from Jackie xx

I love this card, but my mum will adore it. She loves steampunk and has made some amazing items. This die will be an enormous help to her. Snowy Owl 16

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
I have to take my hat off to you - your "grunge" is still elegant, and I can't wait to get my grubby little hands on it. I'm not really into full "grunge" but this is just so interesting and a heaven-sent for pesky males.
But like Ann Toppcards says "it's not only for the males".......... my brain is already whirring..............
Hugs, Rose

Jackie Trinder said...

Hi Sue this is a stunning card that is an amazing die. I can't wait to see all the other dies it is all so exciting. Take care. Hugs Jackie

I just love steampunk and this will make a wonderful embellishment, either as a whole or just using parts of the design.

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
I looked today with mixed feelings as like others have mentioned , grunge wouldn’t be my first choice! However your card is lovely. I may not use all these techniques but the corner Die is lovely and truly inspired! I could see myself using that in the top corner with the tool box and tools in the bottom corner! I just think it’s a great addition for a man’s card if nothing else . You are a very clever lady! For altered art work too, a brilliant addition to anyone’s arsenal.
Many thanks!
Donita - virtual ice lollies/ popsicles on the way!! Seriously not funny having no power or fresh drinking Water! We take these things for granted so often don’t we! Hope you get both restored very soon!
Love to all,
Myra ( Friend of Maureen! ) xxx

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I have never been over-enamoured with steampunk and grunge they just really are not my style but this card with the Industrial Chic Swirl is rather nice! Because it has been given the magic Sue touch I think the Swirl would fit in very well with the Finishing Touches and in different colours would make some unusual but lovely flowers.

Pam - hope all goes well at the hospital today and you are able to get a date.
Donita - I do hope you get your power back soon, it is no fun creeping around in the dark and I would be lost if I couldn't boil the kettle for a cuppa.
PP - I thought you were meant to be taking things easy??!!
Marie P - what a lovely surprise for you with your daughter turning up unexpectedly. Sorry your moving date has been moved though.
I hope all the decorators manage to take regular breaks to look in on the blog, it is sure to Spur you on so that you can get back to crafting :-)

Great start to your launch. Can see lots of places where this die could be nipped for multiple applications.

So different for you Sue! I think this is a truly a very unique die and will be so versatile. Like what you have done with it.

Good morning lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

What a most auspicious return to the blog for me, and a massive surprise to see another blog launch.....got a text from Yvonne informing me that it was beginning this morning and I just had to see what delights Sue had in store for us.
I adore steampunk style cards but don’t have the knowledge or expertise to create them for myself....i tried something similar years ago when i went to a local craft class but since they’ve stopped i tend not to go out of my comfort zone. I would really appreciate it if you did more cards like this fabulous beauty and perhaps some video tutorials to help me grasp the techniques used to create such a wonderful effect....i really appreciate you taking us all out of our comfort zones with this new die concept, its fabulous and i am so excited to see what other delights you can create using it.
Just in case you hadn’t twigged, i am in love with this die and card and look forward to more of the same later in the launch. Thanks for prodding my creative juices Sue, its much appreciated.
Love and hugs to all, especially my besties, i have missed you soxxx

Love and crafty hugs

Saba said...

Hello Sue,
I have been eagerly awaiting your new launch to see just what you do with this somewhat different collection and this first sample has not disappointed. Steam punk has never really been my thing and I'm hoping your samples over the next few days will convert me and give me the inspiration to come out of my comfort zone and try something different. This IC swirl is such an interesting design and to me would work well for all genders and ages. You really have let your inner grunge go with this one and I'm intrigued by your background and how you created it.
Sorry I've been missing this week, it's been so full on every day with the family being here, we've been to the zoo, Lego Land, a play barn, swimming baths and on forest trails to name but a few. They are now safely home and it will be Christmas before I get to see them again.
Donita loved your take on popcicles, hope you get your power on soon.
Lorraine lovely to see you, you've been missed.
Pam hope all went well today and youmget a date for your op very soon.
Love and hugs for all
Saba xxxx

Pat L said...

Hi Sue
I'm not really into steampunk but I think you could change my mind with this very chic swirl Die, love the background too
Pam hope all goes well for your pre op assessment
Helen hope you're feeling better today
Donita hope the power comes back before everything in your freezer defrosts
Welcome back Laine and Saba

Sending love and hugs to everyone
Pat

Sue this swirl is fantastic, so different yet so many possibilities and wonderful
that you have those mens cards covered in this launch.

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

I have never been into steampunk and grunge, they just really are not my style. However this card with the Industrial Chic Swirl is showing steampunk and grunge done the Sue Wilson way, with just the right amount of elegance and style. A great start to the release.

Glennis said...

Fantastic! I love this style

Liz said...

Love this Industrial Chic collection. Super die used on this project.

scrAPpamondo said...

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!

stitchingranny said...

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.

Pam, hope all went well at the hospital today.

Pawprintx4 said...

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.

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

TracyM #6773 said...

LOVE your card and ADORE your die Sue!
I have to confess that I had not entered the world of steampunk creations until last year and I'm so glad I did ... it started a hearty addiction. I often mix my cogs and gears with flourishes and flowers, so this die has combined them perfectly for me :)
