Happy Birthday

Good Sunday morning all!  Today's card is almost in the clean and simple realm as it is so quick and easy.  I started with a piece of coconut white card and embossed it with the Art Deco Shells embossing folder for texture.  I gave it a thin pink mat.  Next I cut two of the Floral Melody corners out of coconut white card.  I added the larger flower in straw yellow behind and then did the rose in a dusty rose colour and the two lilies in blush card.  I added the corners with mounting foam in opposite corners.  I cut the Happy Birthday mini expression die  twice out of dusty rose card and glued them in a diagonal fashion in the centre of the card.  White mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, D

Petal Pocket Flowers

Hello and welcome back!  This is our last post for this blog launch, but it is one of my absolute favourites!  Introducing the Petal Pocket Flowers to you!  Now when you see the actual die, you are certainly going to wonder what you are supposed to do with it (it looks like some sort of ninja throwing star!) LOL  The flower is so easy to assemble, you just need to fold on the fold lines and the flower forms itself, quick and easy! Watch the video on our YouTube channel and you will see how easy it is!  Ink the edges if you like, add the centre and you are done!  You just need to leave a comment one last time and wait for the drawing and winners to be posted on the 27th of April!  I hope you have all enjoyed this launch.  All for now, Sue x

Starlight Daisy die set

Hi bloggers!  The Starlight Daisy die set is the next floral die set up on offer.  This set is a bit more bold, but with a decorative die centre.  The three sizes of flowers are designed with an inner decorative die and an outer cutting edge so they can be used to cut into the card or you can cut them out completely.  You can also use the outer cutting die with the matching Stamp To Die For to have a completely different looking flower so they are so versatile.  If you want a flower that makes a bold statement, then this is the flower for you!  Leave your comment on this post if you would like a chance to win this one.  The final post of this blog launch will be showing up at 3pm today.  All for now, Sue x

Beautiful Hydrangea die

Hello and welcome back!  This next set is called Beautiful Hydrangea and is it ever!  The die is a bit different in that the flowers cut and lift up to create the look of the Hydrangea without having to put in individual flowers.  It also comes with a lovely sentiment die that is just perfect for any occasion!  Don't forget to use the Pinit button at the bottom of each post to save any cards or die samples for later inspiration.  There is one final day of this blog launch and it all starts tomorrow morning at 6am.  It is all about the flowers tomorrow!  All for now, Sue x

Climbing Floral Vine

Hi there my crafty friends!  We have reached the final two days of the launch and these will both be shorter days with only three posts per day.  For the start of the penultimate day, I would like to share the Climbing Floral Vine with you.  This die adds a lovely floral detail to your cards and can be used as a border, a focal element or even a background as I have done here.  It is easily snipped into smaller bits and can be used as an accent die too.  I think you will find yourself reaching for this one quite a bit!  Leave your comment here if this is one you would like a chance to win.  The next post will be online at 12 noon today.  All for now, Sue x

Petite Butterflies

Hi bloggers!  The final post today is dedicated to the Petite Butterflies die set.  The set has been designed with six small butterflies of varying sizes, perfect for an accent on any card. You can see two of the designs on this sample card.  There is even a side view butterfly which looks amazing resting on any floral element.  It's a small set, but it will be a perfect go to when you just need a little something!  Add a comment on this post to enter your name into the drawing to win this one.  The next day's dies start here at 6am.  I hope to see that you have been by the blog!   All for now,

Squared Squares Noble die set

Hello there my crafty friends!  I think you are really going to like the new Squared Squares Noble die set.  This set is unique to anything I have ever designed.  It only cuts into the paper, there are no cutting edges added.  However, it has been designed to work in conjunction with both sets of the Double Pierced Noble Squares or you can use a paper cutter to cut the outside lines.  Every other die in the set works with the original Double Pierced Noble Squares and the other half of the work with the B set, it just alternates from set to set.  I have used the Double Pierced Square sets to cut the edges on the card sample shown so you can see that you will still get the piercing around the frames if you do.  If you like this die set, just leave your comment here.  The last die set is at 6pm tonight.  All for now, Sue x

Sending

Hello crafters!  This post is dedicated to showing off the Sending Mini Expression die.  Again, I have used it with the coordinating clear stamp set called Big Ideas to add the rest of the sentiment (in this case, the "Birthday Wishes."  I just love having the large sentiment word to really grab your attention and doesn't it work well in the oval frame to fill up the top of the card.  There are just so many other stamps in the set that can be used with it too.  If you like this sentiment die, just leave a comment on this post ad you will be entered into this drawing.  That is the last of the mini expression dies for this release, but we have more great dies sets to showcase in the coming days.  The next one will be online at 3pm today.  I do hope that you will pop back by the blog to have a peek!  I think you will really like it!  All for now, Sue x

Happy

Hi bloggers!  We are starting today with the Happy mini expression die.  I just love this bold and swirly Happy die, it is just so happy! LOL  It can be used with so many of your stamps and even other dies.  The style is to mix and match fonts these days so you can go mad with this one!  Shown here with the Garden Circle as the focal element, it just looks great as a bold sentiment to go with the stamped birthday wishes.  I'm sure anyone would love to receive a birthday card like this, don't you agree?  Leave your comment if you would like a chance to win it and join me back here at noon for the next post.  All for now, Sue x

Congrats

Hello and welcome back!  The Congrats mini expressions die is more of a stand alone die than the others, but there are still quite a few sentiments in the Big Ideas stamp set that will work with it very well.  Shown here, I decided to allow it to say it all and paired it with one of the die sets already shown during the launch.  It is a lovely, highly readable font, that will surely be the focal element on any of your cards.  If this one appeals to you, then you know what to do!  I would love to hear what you think of the launch so far too.  There is still a bit more to come but I won't hold you to a favourite if you share it with me!  LOL  We have one more Fabulous  Mini expression to share with you today and it will be up on the blog at 6pm.  All for now, Sue x
