Mechanical Holly Square

Hello crafters!  Welcome to day three.  We are starting out this morning with the Mechanical Holly Square die set.  This set has four dies in in and it gives you some fun elements to cut and combine for some interesting shapes.  You can grunge it up if you like or go with a more elegant sort of steampunk style like I have here, it looks great either way!  You can also easily nip away the holly leaves for use in any non Christmas sort of projects.  Leave your comment here if you would like to be entered into this drawing.  I will be back at noon for the next offering.  All for now, Sue x

This is a great die set. You do inspire us to look at dies differently, and chop them apart making them very versatile

Hi Sue. You know this style isn't my cuppa tea, so would like to give those that love this style a better chance of being drawn but that doesn't stop me from supporting your blog everyday. What I do like is the inner block dies, those are all year rounders, and those delicate little holly leaves with their pretty swirls, it's the cog wheels that don't appeal and why save for dies I know I'd never use. I hope to remember to check in for the remainder of the day but please withdraw my name for this collection to give at least one blogger one extra chance. A beautiful sample if made with 'my cuppa tea' dies lol. Enjoy your morning lovely lady xxx

I love that you show us all the different ways a die set can be used. This grungy snowflake design is a great artsy take on the usual winter designs, and yet can look quite traditional as well.

Good Morning Sue OHH WOWEEE. This sample card is beautiful. Apart from my favourite colours... blue and white.... always gets my vote....the die is awesome. I Never would believe you could get this look from steam punk. Well done Sue. This is why you deserve all the awards and accolades that are due to you. Another wonderful set. Someone is going to be very lucky. Sending best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Donita Naylor said...

That's a snow machine! I'd recognize it anywhere!

I love the corners. You must have composed them from other sets, because I don't see them on a set.

I'd really like to see this snow machine without holly. And those gears just make me want to turn something.

Enjoy your Saturday, Sue and Wilsonettes.

Pussycats said...

Hello Sue and all
WOW what a stunning new set , The Mechanical Holly Square die set to me is one of them sets that you could use all year round. So many different details in the dies , if I was to snip the holly of after christmas I would be saving them to add to other cards. I always think that steampunk cards are made using more darker colours and seeing your card to day shows us that pale colours can work.
Wendy, Pussycats

Lola45 said...

Good Morning Sue,

What a beautiful card, who knew Steampunk could be sooooo elegant. I am also loving the fact that you could use the inner cogs any time of year so really versatile. In fact in all the posts I've seen so far this is probably the most versatile set of dies I've ever seen. I can feel a purchase and my gilding flakes calling, lol!

Keep up the great work, beautiful dies, even more beautiful cards.

Fabulous card and die set Sue

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

Now this is a really interesting set - love how you've married mechanical elements with organic leaves but since holly leaves are so spiky they actually work very well together - and I love the wheels within wheels of the overall design, another must-have set I think...

Izzy

Crewe Trish said...

Hello Sue
I am like Stephanie and not a big lover of steam punk but this is pretty done in these colours

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

I think this has to be my favourite so far, well along with Santa. You have the Christmas elements for the non-steam punk fans but then the cog effects for those that are. Love it for itself but also its versatility to be used all year round....Great post.

Hi Sue, a beautiful Christmas card and die set. Your holly die set is different and can be used for other occasions.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, beautiful creation and looks like you have made the cogs corners from the other die's in this collection that you have already shown us, clever.

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

karenlotty said...

Brilliant! It’s definitely industrial chic but “not in your face” So it lends itself to being very grungy/shabby chic or clean simple and elegant

cards too and not just for x-mas. Like the card.
