Isobel

Hi bloggers!  This post is dedicated to showing off the Isobel die set.  I love this one as it is just so different in an offset sort of symmetrical way.  It has been designed to look like an overlay more than a solid die which means that it is very delicate looking, but quite sturdy at the same time.  I have been able to add in three very useful sentiments too that all fit inside the die frame or can easily be used elsewhere with other die sets.  This frame can also be used as a vertical frame or horizontally, making it so much more versatile too.  Just leave me a comment if this one sings to you.  I will be back at noon with the next post of the day.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue,

Your dies always give something special, the care and attention to detail you add is second to none!
This gorgeous swirl cornered frame with it's art deco'ish trellis is just simply divine! It has all the usual snip ability one would expect to make fabulous corner accents. And teamed with those gorgeous flowers that you've yet to showcase, well it's an AWESOME! from me.

I have been waiting for your ladies & Isobel doesn’t disappoint.

This Isobel frame die is singing to me. Love the offset look of it. Reminds me of the victorian florishes that are so romantic and "fluid" from the Victorian era. Yes I am. I am a victorian at heart. The tiny pin dots are wonderful, too. This size looks like it will be a perfect size to be used on my USA sized cards.

Hi Sue,

If you buy this lovely frame with these 3 useful sentiments, three cards are ready.So versatile. And today's card shows the beauty of the die making a difficult decision where to add it on the list: on the top or not. I noticed some new flowers as well,so I won't say Isobel is my favourite for now, but definettly it is a must have.
