Evergreen Branch


Hi crafters.  We have reached the penultimate blog post (sorry only one more!)  The Evergreen Branches are so pretty as an accent for your floral element.  The die set has two sizes for the branches and they have a slight left and right facing orientation as well.  These can be nipped apart if you would like to use them in smaller cards or accents too.  Shown here, you can see how nicely they mix with other leafy accents too.  Think wreaths, they look amazing when done that way.  If you like this one, now is the time to get your comment on the post.  The final post of the launch will be online at 3pm today.  You can probably guess what it is, but I do hope you will come back and look for sure!  All for now. Sue x

Hello Sue,
More beautiful foliage to grace any card, Christmas or not. Love them and can see them being used to make a festive wreath. They've gone onto my ever increasing wish list!

I've just spent a happy hour watching your shows from HSN and if I'm not mistaken there were a few dies I haven't seen before on the samples? This launch is coming to the end but maybe there's a summer one just waiting in the wings!! Looking forward to seeing you on the 16th for your next shows. Hope you are having a lovely time over the pond.

Good afternoon Sue, I have been waiting to see these dies in action, they are gorgeous and the first thing I thought of was wreaths! I wonder what the last post will be......could it be Poinsettias?? Love from Jean from Corsham xxx

This is beautiful! Love the colours, the vellum , Noel die and,
of course, the branches! They seem almost a staple to be
used under any flowers, and for the wreaths too!

Loving these dies. So many uses when you think outside of the box.

Steph Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. I know this won't be one of my gifts for our anniversary only because my keeper hasn't been presented with dies from this launch (yet) but be sure, they WILL be added. This is the other MUST die for me I really love your floral and foliage does and use nothing else other than your designs so to be able to use them all year is a real financial bonus for me or my keeper considering they are the only gifts I've ever asked for since launch 1 (still have over 90 on his list) lol considering my age there are enough for him to choose from till I can craft no more lol.
Talking of adding numbers I really hope that after your beautiful launch ends you have gained MORE blog supporters leaving their comments of thanks etc to get you near to the TOP of the blog count and get you to BEST BLOG as well as TOP die designer. It maybe the last but one in the launch but we still have your inspiration to wake up to every day xxx

Marie P. from Longridge said...

Hello there Sue.
I have a number of foliage dies not yet used because I'm not good at making flowers but maybe this offering on the very last day may encourage me to try again.
This launch has been an inspiration like I don't remember having before and I have already arranged private classes at home for using and colouring stamps. I will now add the making and using of all types of foliage.
Thank you Sue for everything you do for us.

Steph Cotterill said...

Ohh yes Sue, simple,effective but brilliant and such a gorgeous addition for our projects from the start of one year right through, what more could we ask for ?
When finding time to quickly flick onto the craft channels I've yet to see any craft stock from ANYONE that not only helps you create for the festive season but all year through, and you have not only helped our inspiration all year round you have shown the world of designers that they don't have to ask a fortune for their dies that are for one use only, they can financially help those that buy their goods and are loyal to their brand without constantly holding their hands out for royalties! and can design products that will look absolutely stunning when you need them to, let's face it how many crafters can afford £€$20.00 for a pack of one or two dies to use once a year I can't, so thank you Sue for all you do and all you give and for thinking of those people and genuine 'blog friends' that support you and for giving us value for money from the largest dies, to the smallest. Will try and pop in next week depending on if I can get reception rather than emergency calls only lol. What a wonderful launch and please don't read this the wrong way but compared to the sneak peak emails the real deal IS THE VERY REAL DEAL ☺ Thank you Sue.
Have a restful afternoon /evening xxx

carol edwards said...

Hello Sue very useful foilage dies for many occasions. Beautiful card too xx

stitchingranny said...

I love these dies and they are going to be so used Sue. They are something I have been looking for, for ages. A proper Christmas tree branch type spray that is ideal just as foliage or for making wreathes even making your own Christmas tree, one branch at a time. But useful all year round too. These are super Sue, thank you.

Hugs Helen from Derbyshire xxx
