Decorative Squared Octagons

Hello bloggers!  Last but not least is the Decorative Squared Octagons!  I know the name is a mouthful, but this set is absolutely beautiful.  One thing that I do need to mention is that these do not cut out of the paper, only into the paper.  They have been designed to work with the Double Stitched Octagons so if you already own that set, these can be used to make decorative frames.  Shown here, you can see the lovely pattern that they make which can be used to go around your focal element.  If this set is singing your name, don't forget to leave a comment on this post.  Just to remind you, I will be doing the drawings on Oct 26th and posting the list of winning names in the afternoon.  Please don't forget to come back by the blog on the 26th to see if your name is among the winners!  All for now, Sue x

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I wish I had the sentiment on the previous card when I was working and selling my cards. I didn't comment as should I win I don't think I would get much use from it so left it for someone else to be lucky. I do love the card though and hope the detail will be on the blog soon.
We saw the Decorative Squared Octagons on the very first post of this launch, you certainly made us wait for it :-) I think it is a fabulous die and adds interesting detail to the card.

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue

Yes this definitely, definitely sings to me. It’s a great set to compliment the Double Stitched Octogons, but you could just use them on their own as well.

You get so many dies. They makes such a statement. Wonderful!

It’s sad your new launch has come to an end, but I’ve enjoyed every post. There have been some brilliant cards to see too. Look forward to seeing more on your blogs in the coming weeks.

Thank you for your hard work and providing us all with inspiration.

Love Helen xxx

I would say it makes a stunning effect on every card and it´s a must-have.

Beryl said...

A beautiful set of dies.

Jomada-Dawn said...

Wow, that's so effective - perfect way to add interest to a card design without adding dimension (which can sometimes be important for postage). And it looks as though you can decide how wide the pattern is, based on how many of the dies you use. I wonder if you could change the spacing, too, by staggering the dies, using odd ones only ... I look forward to seeing what else you come up with.

Robin Sachs said...

This is ingenious. I couldn’t make out what it was when I first saw it advertised. Use mirror card behind, stitch on it. I’d love to have a go at playing with this. Brilliant. Thanks Sue x
