April Die Release Blog Launch/ Under The Waves Frame

Hello there my crafty friends!  It's time for the April Blog Launch starting today!  We have twelve dies we are releasing as well as a matching paper pad.  As always, I will be giving away one set of each of the dies and the paper pad this release.  You just need to leave a comment on the blog post of whatever die (or paper pad) you would like to possibly win.  I will do a drawing for the lucky winners and the full list of winners will be posted on April 19th in the afternoon.  Please make sure to make your name memorable in some way as I only have one set of  each to give away. 
We are starting out with one of my personal favourites, the Under The Waves frame.  I love that this die does all the work for you to create a stunning card!  I decided to keep this one very muted and soft (but it does have a beautiful shimmer to it that you will be able to see in close ups when it has it's full day on the blog soon).  This set has two dies in it, the frame and a shadow backing die for it too.  It is really easy to add some of the elements in a dimensional manner too.  Don't forget to leave your comment if this set is singing to you.  I will return at noon with the second post of the day!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. You're so right, these frames do do all the work. I have a few, your birthday, wedding, Mother's day frames all make the prettiest and easiest of cards plus you could always hide a fish or turtle from your other Under The Sea collection. Like the hint lol.
Sit back and enjoy reading all the wonderful posts you'll receive over the next few days xxx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, well I wasn't expecting this when I logged onto the blog this morning, such a beautiful die from the frames and tags collection, what a stunner, only 2 dies in the set but they tell a wealth of stories, they can be used as per your design with the colouring on them but you could also snip them about to create so many other designs onto a card, even creating a fish tank background behind acetate - well that was the first thing that popped into my head when I saw it.

Good luck everyone, it would be lovely to see you all visit Sue's blog every day not just when it is a blog launch, she provides a wealth of information.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Deb E Isle of wight said...

Wow what a great start to the launch - love the water theme (like the last one, but different) and this is so snippable and versatile. This is straight onto my shopping list. Love it and can't wait to see what else is to come....

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. I guess you must be missing your holidays by the sea, judging by the flavour of your recent releases! What a wonderful detailed die this is and I am sure it could be used for lots of different scenes by snipping into it.

I couldn't comment for a few days so you caught me by surprise with April release. I do love a surprise especially this kind.

What a great way to start the new launch. The Under The Waves frame is beautiful and has many elements that can be snipped and used separate. Love the idea to have a shadow backing die for this frame.
I already love this release.

Hugs from Toronto to you all.
Stay safe and healthy.

I lost my job few months back and there was no way to get income for my family, things was so tough and I couldn't get anything for my children, not until a met a recommendation on a page writing how Mr Bernie Wilfred helped a lady in getting a huge amount of profit every 6 working days on trading with his management on the cryptocurrency Market, to be honest I never believe it but I took the risk to take a loan of $1000. and I contacted him unbelievable and I was so happy I earn $12,500 in 6 working days, the most joy is that I can now take care of my family I don't know how to appreciate your good work Mr. Bernie Doran God will continue to bless you for being a life saver I have no way to appreciate you than to tell people about your good services.
