Dragonfly Triple Layering Die

Hello there my crafty friends!  Welcome back to the blog.  The Dragonfly is being showcased during this post.  I have had so many requests for dragonflies recently that I thought it would be really cool in this format.  I think they work so well for both masculine and feminine styled cards too as they can be either very pretty or definitely more masculine than a butterfly would be!  Imagine these guts with some of the Gilding Polishes or Glitter Kiss products too, really stunning I think!  If you like this set, please go ahead and leave a comment on this post.  I would love to know what you have liked best so far, any firm favourites yet?  We have one more post to share today and that will finish out day two, but don't worry there are at least another week or so of the launch to go!  See you at 6pm!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue
This die is amazing. What a stunner. I do love dragonflies. You are right - butterflies do seem to be more feminine. So a dragonfly is more suitable for those pesky men!
These layering dies are right up my street x

Suzzette Y in Boone said...

I am one of those card designers that like to use a dragonfly on my cards from time to time. Looking at your dragonfly and remembering the other layering dies you have shown in this latest set of releases, it dawned on me you have achieved with dies what some stamp designers have done with layered stamping. Alright! See, I know you think "out of the box".

Seymoure said...

Yes...Yes...Yes. A dragonfly! Have been hoping you would design one and you did a beautiful job.

Eunice from Edmonton said...

YEAH!!!!! I have been searching for a Dragonfly die and this one is just AMAZING!!! Your card is wonderful, you are right the gilding polish would give them the finishing touch. Thank you, thank you. As you can guess the Dragonfly is my fav so far followed by the Humming Bird!

Steph Cotterill said...

I've done it again ! I dozed off so I'm now 2 hours behind ! Can I ask for my name not to be entered for this dragonfly die please. I love everything else, the centre focal point with the new frame, the expression sentiment die and the striplet but I'm terrified of those critters, as pretty as people say they are, they fill me with the ebie jeebies and if I could run a mile from one when it approaches believe me I would, I just freeze to the spot and kind of growl lol. So I love the sample but not the subject sorry Sue xxx

ursula said...

Butterflies and dragonflies are always so handy to just add that little bit extra on a card, this dragonfly is amazing, love the card too....luv Ursula Longworth xx

Barbara Gosden said...

When I saw this die on websites I thought “another dragonfly die” but on this card I can see it is so much more and really appreciate its potential.

Marie P.from Longridge said...

Hello Sue and all followers.
I think you have opened my memory bank with this one Sue. My DH and I used to sit on the deck (We lived in Ontario then) and watch the dragonfly antics. I think I will have to add this one to my MUST HAVE collection. I think I would make a Pixie powder sheet to cut the die from. I just love it Sue. I now have a favourite from this collection.

Hi Sue. WOW !!! What a gorgeous Dragonfly die set !!! I have been looking for a Dragonfly die for ages now and this is the first one I have found that I really love/ want/ have to have !!! I think it just looks fabulous with the triple layers !!! I also think a Dragonfly is the perfect alternative to a Butterfly for the men's cards that we struggle with. The perfect embellishment for men's cards. Thanks Sue. Love from Tres X X X
