Happy Christmas Mini Expression


Hi crafters!  The next die offering is the Happy Christmas Mini Expression.  This die set is also one of the largest mini expressions in the range, but it is bold and beautiful.  You can see what a statement it will make on any of your Christmas card projects.  The mixture of fonts is quite on trend too but easily readable which I feel is a real must for sentiment dies.  If this one is right up your alley, then leave your comment on this post.  Just checking, do you have a favourite die from the release yet?  I would love to know what you think of everything you have seen so far!  The next post is scheduled for 3pm today.  All for now, Sue x

Do I have a favourite? Yes! All of them. I love this one but I rarely use the sentiment Happy Christmas” I normally go for Merry Christmas
The stained glass window die works beautifully with it Can’t wait to see you demo the making of this I thinks it’s with CS crystal tints ...

Always useful! Like the triptych window. Think my favourite may be the robin & holly branch die, but then there are the frosty snowflakes & the netted stars etc. Etc so hard to choose a favourite!

Marie P. from Longridge said...

Hello again Sue.
I thought I had commented on all of your posts but obviously I haven't. Hope I haven't missed any more.

I do like this die and card but as I have not yet got around to learning the technique for stained glass with Pixie Powders I'm afraid it will have to go on the back burner for now.
Hugs
