Ava die set

Hi crafters!  It's time for the Ava die set!  Don't you just love all the detail in this set?  You may even notice how pretty the Caroline die from the previous post looks sitting right in the centre of the crisscrossed Ava dies!  Well spotted if you did!  The Ava die comes in three pieces; a very decorative outer section which is what shows here in this samples, an inner cutting rectangle and a very floral centre section that can be used as a focal element all on it's own.  How's that for versatility!  This was one of my favourites to reach for and I'm sure it will be one of yours too!  You just need to pop a comment on this post to be entered into the drawing.  Face it, someone has to win and it might just be you! LOL    That's it for today but we aren't even half way through yet so there is so much more to come starting here at 6am tomorrow morning!  All for now, Sue x

This is a stunning background and goes lovely with the Caroline die, though it has such pretty flowers in the centre that it seemed an awful shame to have hidden them. I am sure we will see them soon Sue, as I feel you will not be able to resist showing them off to us (well I do hope you wont lol)

Hello again Sue,

What a stunner for the last post of the day. Ava looks like beautiful handmade Belgian lace, magnificent, it's just a shame that so much of her is hidden in the card. The card is breathtaking in it's color scheme and design. I have loved every posting today, it would be so hard to say which is my favorite. Your talent and creativity overwhelms me.

Looking forward to tomorrow.

hollyberry said...

Think that this frame is my favourite,although of course they are all beautiful.

Donita Naylor said...

For a while, I worried that we had lost you to some corporate decision requiring you to do frames like many of the other companies are doing, but today's designs have proven that the real Sue Wilson, and the unsung artist who interprets your ideas, have still have the grace, beauty and genius that set you apart from all the others.

At first I thought Ava was too much. Really, she could have been two sets, because the interior leafy rectangle is a story unto itself. Also, now I see the family resemblance between Ava and Caroline.

No other company has yet achieved the elegance, pleasing proportions and graceful swirls and curves that are your trademark. Also, the intricate dies of other companies somehow aren't sharp enough to cut as well as yours cut. They're a pleasure to own, a pleasure to use and a pleasure to see our results.

Thank you for making life better in so many ways.

Love,
Donita, (from Rhode Island in the U.S.) (No, we're not part of New York or Massachusetts, we're our own state.)
