Stardust Background

Hello there my crafty friends!  I have the stunning Stardust Background to share with you during this post.  What a fabulous background this makes with it's swirly waves drawing you in!  This one looks amazing with Cosmic products on it too, don't you just love the look of the Lustre Polishes on this sample!  This one has been designed to work well with so many of the Christmas collection, but you could easily use this one for so many non Christmas sort of cards too.  It is a great one for batch card making as well as it really gives you the wow factor with very little work!  I will be back at 3pm with the third post for today, but don't forget to get your comment in for a chance to win this one!  All for now. Sue x

Ann Topp said...

Good Afternoon Sue. Omg I love this .... this is not just for Christmas...this is an all year round die...so twice as much for your money. Oh how you think of us Sue. Fantastic sample Sue. Thankyou so much. Someone is going to be very lucky. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Steph Cotterill said...

Another all year, value for money design from the best. Did you see any octopus whilst away last year or had calamari for starters and quickly pencilled a design on your serviette/paper napkin and if so that shows that most Sueaholics follow the leader lol so many times I've looked at something and mentioned what a beautiful die or folder it would make lol.
Anyway I'd better shush up before I give thoughts away that belong in my mind only 😉 so bye for now and look forward to your next adorable post xxx

Tressa said...

I do like this background die. My mind's eye has already pictured it using black card and diamond frost. I think this is a must!

I do like the colour choice you have used to make your background.

Hi Sue
This a fab background Die and as you say not just for Christmas. Sorry I didn’t comment on your first post today, it wasn’t that I didn’t like it, it’s just that I’m not into angels and didn’t want to be included in the draw

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue

A great and unusual background die. It would complement the noble classic adorned octagon dies perfectly, especially the die with the bubbles/circles. Great card too.

Steph, I agree with you. On a recent trip to St Paul’s Cathedral in London I commented several times to my husband that I could see inspiration in designs there for Sue Wilson dies. I wonder if you’ve been Sue?

Love Helen xxx
