Industrial Chic Background


Hello there my crafty friends!  During this post, we are featuring the new industrial Chic Background die set.  Now this background is unique in that it is made up of three dies, but the centre die has been designed so it can be easily made into a striplet as shown in this sample.  The linked edging around the striplet is part of the background that can be extended or easily nipped away and used by itself if desired.  The outer area of the background has been designed to look like a zipper and can be used to frame your Industrial Chic creations.  Leave a comment to be included in the drawing to win this one.  The last post for the day is at 3pm, hope you can pop back by here.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. Love this one. Hadn't thought to use it as a striplet. Great idea. Thank you. Off out of very early Christmas lunch with some pottery friends. Be back much later as I shall be watching iceskating after school.

redfox said...

I don't usually go for the background dies but this one is a must!! The "I NEED list" is getting longer, oh well crafting is a good addiction to have!

sandy acland said...

Another stunner of a card, I love the colours and the design. Brilliant.
Another die for my second list. Its not until you see some dies actually put on a card, you can think of ideas to use it:0)

Lovely card Sue, I wouldn't have thought striplet about this die set. That's why we need you. Although I'm not a Steampunk fan, yours have proved to be a bit more delicate and I can see flowers and pretty parts in them. I have loved all your backgrounds so far, they set the dies off perfectly.
Donita, I hope you are restored to the grid soon. Keep warm and safe.

Marie P. From Coppull. said...

Good morning Sue,A truly gorgeous set of dies. I love striplets and this one may go on to my list.
All of you Wilsonettes that read all the comments will know that my house-move is now less than a week away and last night as I was sorting out crafty invoices I opened my Xcel on the PC and started to put in what I had spent over the last 3 years which is when I made my first card. I thought Xcel had gone crazy when I asked it to add it up. I expected it to be in the hundreds and was more than a little taken aback to find it was on the thousands. How is it that I rarely have all the dies that Sue uses?. I think I must give myself a monthly budget for dies. What do you think?
Love to all. Marie P.
