Woven Heart

Hello everyone!  Welcome to day four of the blog launch.  This post is dedicated to showing off the first of the new Filigree Artistry Collection dies, the Woven Heart.  The idea behind this concept was to create dies to use that would look as if you you had done Pergamano techniques of piercing and tearing vellum.  The lines have a similar style to those found in traditional Pergamano, but not the hours of work that are needed.  Moreover, the dies look equally as beautiful whether they are cut out of vellum or card so they are really versatile. If you think this new concept will be something that you would like to try, just leave a comment on this post and you will be included in the drawing.  The next next post will be at 12 noon today.  All for now, Sue x

Morning and Happy Easter Sue. What next ? Grunge style festive (ish) dies, 3D layering dies now pergamano looking dies, amazing, where on earth do you get these idea's ? I'm so pleased that you do, you really are a Fairycraft Mother, what you'd like and what you want to use on projects becomes everyone's wish come true and this new die is proof of that, we wish we had the time and knowledge for such a complicated craft and you create a gorgeous die to cover that but a lot easier to acheive - brilliant and a gorgeous sample to start our day thank you. Wherever you are enjoy your day xxx

Hi Sue
That heart is so gorgeous and Alice provides the perfect backdrop for a beautiful card.
When I first saw your new dies I was intrigued to find out the idea behind the new Filigree Artistry Collection. And now I know. As always - the idea of a genius!
Such a clever concept and I can see from first glance at this card that this is going to be another collection that I am going to have to get my hands on.

Good morning Sue,
Congratulations on this wonderful new concept! Although I admire the beauty of Pergamarno I've resisted 'dabbling' due to finances, now I can get the look at a fraction of the outlay, thank you! X

Hello Sue, Happy Easter all. What a stunning die, simply gorgeous Sue , a wonderful design. Xx

Scottydog said...

Love this concept, certainly one I would find most useful. The heart has a padded look to it & reminded me of the satin hearts you got on cards at one time before the postage increased for thicker cards! Now I am really showing my age. Can’t wait for the next instalment but will be out most of the day so will catch up later.

Scottydog said...

Forgot to wish you & all Wilsonettes a very Happy Easter!

This one is definitely the top of my list. I've always believed that you should learn something new every day and perhaps I'm the only one of your bloggers who has never heard of .Permagano. (Google will be next on my list haha)
As soon as today's gift came up on my screen it called to me and is a 'must have' Thank you Sue

Good Morning Sue and all
WOW what a stunning card this morning and loving The Filigree Artistry Woven Heart. The effect of it quilted is lovely and the fine details from around the heart looks like you have spent hours on the card. I love the finishes touches of adding the pearls and think this die would be perfect for baby cards or valentines. Alice works perfectly in the background with heart.

Hi Sue, sorry this is so late but it has been a long day and I was determined to comment before I fell into bed. Love the concept of your Filigree Artistry, I have always admired Pergamano work (and the people who do it!) but know that I would never have either the time or the patience to do it so I am thrilled that you have given us the opportunity to get the effect without all the hard work :-) Your card is lovely and the Woven Heart reminds me of a beautiful padded satin cushion.
Now going to catch up on the rest of the day.
