Michelle

Hi crafters!  It is time to introduce you to Michelle!  Michelle is a lovely smaller Frame and Tag die set with beautiful detailing.  There are also some gorgeous Stamps To Die For that match this set (just so you know!) that I hope to share with you soon after the blog launch is over.  The die has a real 3-dimensionality to it with what looks like fingers wrapping around from the edge.  This set looks amazing when pared with any of the octagonal shapes as well.  Don't forget to leave your comment and your name or alias on this post.  The final post of the day will be here at 6pm.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, I see what you mean, it does look like fingers curled around, really effective. A lovely card and I'm loving the border die too.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Something quite regal about this die Sue. Can't fail to impress. Love how you've used it on the card x

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue and everyone

What a stunning card. Love the colours. The Michelle die is gorgeous. Definitely a must have I think, especially as there are stamps to go with it. It’s lovely that it can be used either way up as well and will coordinate with the octagonal brilliantly. So pretty.

Love Helen xxx

Afternoon Sue and all Wilsonettes, you are truly amazing, I am blown away every time I open the net sample on the blog, this one reminds me of arms all you to wrap around you and comfort you, sill I know but that is what it reminds me of. Like to border too.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Pawprintx4 said...

Frames and Tags is my favorite category. I find I use them most of all as they make the card and every thing else is just ornamental (IMHO). I love the place to stamp a sentiment they offer also. Cards are so easy to put together when you have a lovely focal like this Michelle. Little fingers...I see what you mean and look forward to the Stamps To Die for selections coming later.

Sam Smithard said...

To My Wonderful Dear Friend Sue, ๐Ÿฅ‡
This Card Is Just Magical Where You’ve Used Tremendous Products
I Love The Colour Palette “The Coconut ๐Ÿฅฅ White/Blue Dusk Together They Are Just Perfect ๐Ÿ‘Œ
“The Michelle Die Set” May Be Smaller “But Boy” It’s Big In Beauty!!!!!!!!
“The Michelle Die Set” (From The Frames/Tags Collection 4 Cutting Dies) Is Just Outstanding I Love The Detail
On The Top/Bottom Of The Blue Dusk Card Its So Pretty, This Is Where You’ve Used Another Magnificent Die Set
“The Chantilly Lace Edger Die Set” (From The Configurations Collection 3 Cutting Dies) It’s Such A Luxurious Die Set
You Used The Middle Die To Cut Into The Blue Dusk Card.......... Exceptional...........
The Largest Of The Edger Dies You’ve Cut Out Of “Coconut ๐Ÿฅฅ White Card” Then Backed It Using The Same Colour
You Placed These Beautiful Edgers On Either Side Of Your Card Placed, You Placed “The Michelle Die” In The Centre
Added A Small Flower Plus A Bow ๐ŸŽ€ Adding Pearls Here/There.
Hey Presto! Another Impressive Masterpiece........................
Also As You Mentioned There Is A Small Collection Of Stamps To Go With Some Of The Frames/Tags Collection...............
Sue, Thank You As Always
Sue, Lots Of Love Also Huge Hugs ๐Ÿค—
Love From Sam xxx

Hello again Sue and all

Such an elegant die, almost an art deco feel to it love the trellis and "fingers" plus the fact that it is smaller. I use a lot of the frames and tags on smaller cards for postage and they are so beautiful and detailed that they just about make a card on their own. Michelle will be lovely for those cards.
