Marilynne

Hi crafters!  Introducing the Marilynne die set.  The eagle eyed among you probably spotted this one during the previous post, but here is is again and it looks different with other layers added to it.  I do like to show these sorts of things as you can get the sense of dies relative to one another and how well they work together too.  Although this is quite a simple card, the Marilynne die adds a beautiful foundation for the focal element, especially with a vellum backing to add such delicateness to it, don't you think?  I think you will find this one to be a real go to for your crafting and not just for Christmas either!  Don't forget to leave your comment on the post and then be sure to pop back by at 6pm today for the final post of the day.   All for now,
Sue x

Lovely, and can imagine it in monochrome white with some glitter.

Steph Cotterill said...

Yes I did spot the outer cutting edge used to hold the sentiment and it's as pretty used alone but dad the layers and it turns into beautiful. Well done Sue, another sample that has Sue Wilson all over it xxx

Pussycats said...

Hello Sue and all
Such a beautiful card and I love the colours. I have noticed the Marilynne die on your cards and noticed you have added a snowflake in centre on this one. Take the snow flake away and I can see this being a die for all year round. I can see paper piecing to this die to create a flower in the centre.

Kiraneries said...

Hi again Sue, a gorgeous Christmas card and die set. Your Marilynne die set is very pretty and not only for Christmas.

stitchingranny said...

Yes I did spot it before and yes it does look so different with the layers added. This is what makes these dies so versatile as here it is a main element whilst on the last card it was an embellishment. These facts are what make so many of your dies useful, and this is a little gem - I love it.

Hugs Helen from Derbyshire xxx

For a compact die it certainly has not lost its detail or beauty. The inbuilt layers certainly enhance its potential for a place in the craft room. WakeyL

Hello Sue,
Love the way you've used Marilyn's shape as a backdrop and added layers from other dies to create a different look to her on this sample and on the previous sample used her in her entirety. She's gorgeous.
