Hummingbird Triple Layering Die


Hello crafters!  It is finally time for the January 2019 Die Launch!  First up right out of the gate, I would like to share with you a fun new idea called Triple Layering dies!  The idea is to add some fabulous colour by layering up the dies on top of each other.  Usually you can have a top intricate cut die and a backing die, but these fabulous new dies have a whole other layer to them!  First up on offer is the Hummingbird die set.  I could hardly put this set down so you will see lots of cards using it!  I will tell you more about them in the following posts. 
  I am giving away a set of each of the dies, you just need to leave a comment on the post that you want to have a chance at winning.  I will do all the drawings and post the winners on Feb. 9th!  Please, please make your name memorable in some way on your comment!  This is important so I do not have more than one person claiming the die prize.  Please add in say the city you line in , like Jane B in Liverpool or add a funny alias like Carmen the crazy cat lady!  If you sign your comment with something that might easily be confused with another person, the die will go to the first person that claims it and I only have one set of each die to give away.  I don't want anyone to be disappointed! Please only one comment per blog post but you can comment on each and every one of the dies (more chances to win, right!)  The second post will be online at 12 noon so I hope to see you back here then!  Don't forget to leave your comment on this post!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue off we go. Keep those nerves at bay, no need for your usual anxieties especially as a lot have already sold out ! So that's the triple layer story I did wonder, very clever. A pretty sample to start day one, all I need to do now is remember we have more to come today but I dare say I'll look at the clock and find myself an hour behind, I knew I should have been more creatively productive earlier in the week cuz I'm not going to get many cards done today !
Looking forward with interest to the lunchtime post. Have a fun day Sue xxx

Sandra Smith said...

Congratulations on your new releases for January 2019. I'm so excited to see all your new dies! Love the hummingbird die and making it a triple layers is so creative. My Mom has been in the hospital for 2 1/2 weeks in another state. She loves her hummingbirds that feed off her feeders on her porch so I would definitely use this to send her a card to cheer her up. I know she'd love a card made with the hummingbird.
