Caitlin

Hello there my crafty friends!  I am continuing on with both the Celtic Collection and the same colour theme too! LOL  Next up is the Caitlin die set.  Caitlin is also a bit more tag sized, but still makes a great focal element.  She will be perfect for smaller sized cards though.  As you can see from this sample, Caitlin can be used to create a lovely background too.  There is a lovely You Tube video I have filmed that uses this die to create a larger focal element so if you like your larger cards, she will also work well for that!  Leave your message in the comment section at the bottom of the blog, then meet me back here at 6pm for the final post of the day!  All for now, Sue x

Seymoure said...

Another must have for my collection. I have a granddaughter named Kaitlyn so the name on this die is very close. I realize you used the original spelling but our Kaitlyn was made up to honor both of her grandmothers as she was our first born grandchild.

Donita Naylor said...

Hello Cait!

Very interesting how the Celtic collection is inspired by but doesn’t copy the traditional Celtic designs like you see taken from design books.

Cait looks like fun.

Why is Blogger making me sign in every time? It can’t remember me for five minutes? Is this happening to everybody?

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue

I’m surprised at how different this die looks when it is cut up and when it is backed and used in full. Lots of possibilities especially if you match with others in this collection.

Love Helen xxx

Phew I'm all Peppa Pigged out lol. Home with ears ringing but how lovely to sit with a coffee and have this lovely sample and incredible die. Honestly Sue you come up with some wonderful designs no others think about (until you plant the seed) then one by one we start to see similar designs but never fear NO-ONE does it like Sue Wilson ☺really looking forward to the final post of the day and what is to follow over the next few days xxx

lritchie said...

Hi Sue, lovely new die, I have to say I must take a look at some of my existing dies and see if they can be cut in half and used in different ways. My mind wants to use the whole die versus dissecting them.

Lovely card too!
