Wishing

Hello there my crafty friends!  Today is devoted to showing off the newest Mini Expression dies.  I have done something a bit different with these this time.  I have done all bold single words that work really well when paired with stamps.  There is a stamp set called Big Ideas that gives you loads of sentiments to go with these, or you can do as I have done with this samples and used portions of stamps already in my craft stash.  It is quite trendy to use bold words this way and I must say that I love it!  I have used bits from several of the new releases to create this card, but I just love the way it turned out.  The Wishing die is such a popular word for card sentiments and there are just so many phrases that can follow it to change it up for any particular card you might need.  Leave your comment on this post and hopefully you can pop back by at noon for post number two today.  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue and all
The sentiment dies are so good, I am a bit of a messy stamper so they are really handy. I like the idea of mixing them up as well. The card is very springlike and lovely

Hi Sue,

Terrific stuff!
You can never have enough sentiment dies and I simply adore these large word dies, you can actually achieve some fantastic cards out of one simple word, AWESOME!!
And the stamp set is absolutely perfect, it has everything you need to say.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, yes I totally agree with you on this, the Wishing die goes so well with the sentiment stamps, I had to look at it twice before I realised that the word 'Wishing' in die format was also part of the sentiment..... stupid me.

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

Dorothy Macdonald said...

Hi Sue,

I love your creation of a Spring day, also I love all the "word" sentiment dies. I much prefer to have a die sentiment compared to a rubber stamp as I do make a mess with the ink.

Thank you for all the inspirations you give us all.

Your card says most dies are versatile.

Dawn Holben said...

This is a fab card Sue, the bold word die looks so good with the stamped words.
Sometimes some style of dies don't seem to look good with stamped words as the styles are different but asyou have done bold words they look fab together.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I have worked backwards today but this is the only comment I am leaving. I love all of today's cards but especially this one, maybe because it incorporates my favourite die of the launch so far. The mini expressions are great and I really like the font. I must look for the Big Ideas stamp set as I think it may well be very useful.
I'm not sure if this will publish as fluffycat as I have had to change my e-mail provider to gmail and consequently changed my user name but it is still me :-)
