Hi crafters!  Second up today is the new Industrial Chic Mixed Essentials die set.  This set includes all sorts of pieces that are just perfect for putting together that fabulous steampunk/ industrial look for your cards and projects!  From the steampunk silhouette man to the timepiece, wings, bolt, cogs, key, screw and wind up key, there is surely a die that will work for whatever you need.  If you are liking the look of this set, you only have to leave a comment to be included in the drawing to win this set.   I would really love to know what you think of the Industrial Chic collection as it is a bit of a new foray for me.   If you are unsure how to go about leaving a comment on any of the posts, there are full directions written out for you on the right hand side of the blog, it is ever so easy to do.  Just give it a try, you never know you may just be the winner of a die set!  The final blog post for our launch day will be up at 3pm today.  I would love to see you back here then.  All for now, Sue x

Great set of steampunk bits & bobs, & love your card just using one of the elements in the set. I think these dies are going to be very useful as well as decorative,

Hi Sue.
Thank you a brilliant card, and a great die set too.
Take care Kitty.

Can see these dies coming in handy for the railway buffs in my family & friends, which coming from a railway town is a fair few

Amazing card and a very versatile die set! Just perfect for men's cards!!

Littlelamb said...

Brilliant card and dies Sue. Thank you. Will be great for the males who I struggle to make cards for. Looking forward to the next lot of dies.

Hi there Sue,

There’s no end to your creative talents! Pulling off steampunk designs shows the breadth of your creativity.

Whilst I’m a pink and floral kinda girl I can appreciate beauty in other styles.

Well done Sue!

Love, Nanny JooJoo from sunny Scunny xx

Terrific, great addition to your range x

stitchingranny said...

Once this one is in the bag, the others will just have to follow. I love all the steampunk dies but for me this is the one that ties them all together with all the tiny elements and that wonderful Victorian Gentleman.

I love these! Right up my street 😉

Love all the cogs and gears. They are perfect for men's cards when they can be used where we would use flowers for the girls.

Good evening lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

The steampunk theme is just so inspiring, i find myself very excited to see what your creative mind has in store for us with demos and card samples on the blog.....it is a style of card making that has always appealed to me but i have never possessed the necessary knowledge and expertise to pull it off convincingly. The backgrounds you are creating with this theme are fabulous, however would i need a full protective body suit to stop me getting it all over my clothes:-)
This card and die set are equally awesome, i can see all the elements being really useful in scrapbooking heritage pages with old photographs, not to mention the fact that many of our male counterparts would appreciate a grunge style industrial look to their cards.
I gather that the steampunk theme isnt to everyone’s taste Sue, well, each to their own, you can’t please everybody but personally i am finding it a refreshing change to your usual perfectionism and classic lines and i sincerely hope that you will treat us to this style far more often:-)
Sending love and hugs to all, particularly my blog besties who i have missed so latelyxxx

Love and crafty hugs

Hi Sue
Although I have never tried this style of card myself I am intrigued by these artistic designs. I really like both of the die sets I have seen so far and the variety of dies in this set will be very useful.

Hello Sue, such amazing card and love the new die.. The card is such a different style then we are used to seeing from you. I have a feeling this is going to be an exciting range.

carol edwards said...

Hello Sue, I certainly like the industrial chic collection. It's so clever how you've managed to mix chic with industrial dies and backgrounds together. Really out of your comfort zone, well I think you've managed to do this and keep your own style too. Carol E. X

Laura O' Connor said...

More fabulous dies. Laura O Springfield

Pawprintx4 said...

Nifty background, not sure how it was done. You really can't make a bad card but I do love your others more.I ordered all the frames & tags that Phill showed on Hochanda. I think these Steampunk dies will go over well for you though.
Pam, I hope your BP wasn't way over the top after nearly being run over going to your appointment. We have crazy drivers too and it only gets worse.
Everyone take care,

RG Stamper said...

I love the look of your Industrial Chic Collection. I have always been a steampunk fan. but not of the grungy steampunk. I like to lighten & brighten it up. These dies are going to work so well with that style. Can't wait for my already ordered dies to arrive. I am sure many of them will mix well with dies from some of your other collections.

Donita Naylor said...

Oh my, oh my, oh my! Love these and what you've done with them. Ditto on the intriguing backgrounds. This one and the first one really need to be demonstrated on videos.
The Winged Thing really does remind me of Wild, Wild West. Perfect as an abstract element, like on your sample.

I already pre-ordered the Industrial Chic sets I loved that sold out early on Joanna Sheen, but I will buy this after I don't win it.

love,
Donita



DeCor said...

What wonderful variety on this die set. Love how you used the wings. Can't quite figure out the background. .is that to come? Really like it.

Janice Brummett said...

Love the background on this card. Hope you do a video on how you created it. This die has so many different components that it makes it a must for "guy" cards. The angel wings would be very pretty on a sympathy card.

AliJ said...

Essentials, definitely. Well done these are a little different but I think they are lovely. AliJ Sussex

Eunice (Canada) said...

I love the mixed Essentials. These dies are very different but lend themselves to many different types of cards.

Latenight SandyH said...

Think the Mixed Essentials will be essential must haves. Another interesting background.

BridgetCG said...

Hello Sue, another brilliant, must have die set, love all the elements, but the wings are just fab, and look great on the card you have created, especially against that awesome background. Bx

Maria Illsley said...

Wow what a stunning card the background is great xx

Dragonsnap2 said...

I’m not really into steampunk or grunge but these dies and cards are brilliant for the men into cars etc. Thanks Sue.

Sam Smithard said...

To My Wonderful Dear Friend Sue,
This Card Is Truly Magnificent I Love The Exceptional Background Created
By The Use Of Pixie Powders Also By Swirling Of Cosmic Shimmer PVA That Both
Yourself/Julia Have Demonstrated In The Past.
The Industrial Chic Collection Would Work Great On Both Cards/Scrapbooking
I Love The Word Dies, So Many Opportunities On How To Use Them, Plus The
Fabulous Mixed Essentials Die Set Which Contains 10 Cutting Dies The Great Clock
The Key/Steampunk Gent Etc.
Sue My Dear Friend Thank You So Very Much.
Love From Sam xxx
