1 more day to wait and another sneaky sample :-)

Good Morning Everyone

OK,.. it's now starting to get really close to the official release date (tomorrow!) of my 'From The Heart' craft dies that I am bursting for you to see them!

Still, one more day means I still can't show you the full collection, but I can show you another sample card, made by me, using one of the dies from the range..

As I've mentioned in the last two posts, I've purposely used only Black and Coconut White Foundations card for my samples, a) because I love the combination and b) because they photograph particularly well

Only one more day to wait!

Just so you all know,.. I won't be on TV with my dies until early March...

Anyhoo, I loved making these cards,.. and, to be honest, they were easy to do, once I'd chosen the die set that I was using,.. You know sometimes when you have crafters block?,.. well, I didn't get that with the dies,.. they just made it more fun to spend time deciding on the layout I wanted etc...

So, this card has a 'Thinking Of You' sentiment,.. I think this is one of the most underused sentiments out there,.. as we all assume it's for a sad occasion, but, if you use different colours to the black and coconut white, it can mean anything... 'Thinking Of You' on the front of your card and then 'On Your Special Day' on the inside,... 'Thinking Of You' on the front of your card and then any of my sentiment stamps on the inside,... such an 'open' sentiment that has so many uses (I think so anyway lol)

This is a 16cm x 22cm card and, as always, the sentiment is my focal point...
I hope you like it :-)

One more day!

Here's the completed card






















And here's a close up of the centre of my card... notice I've added tiny pearls on the hearts that connect the words :-)













And here's a close up of the actual sentiment,.. I just love the detail and guess what,... you can actually read the words! :-)







Remember,..
I will give away one of my samples on Thursday, to celebrate the release of my dies, so, be sure to leave a comment (good, of course!) and I will choose a name at random on Thursday afternoon.. I will go through the comments from all my 'reveal' posts :-)
(Good Luck!)

Happy Crafting!

  2. Hi Phill,
    I'm So Truly Pleased To See Your New Range Of Dies I'm Sure They'll Be Truly Tremendous As Is All Your Products, I Saw A Very Quick Video On YouTube Where You Introducing Them But You Couldn't See Them All!!!!
    The Filming Where You Had Them And All Your Other Fantastic Products Is This At Your Shop In Nottingham!!!!!!
    I'm Not Going To Say Good Luck With Your Dies Simply Because You Won't Need It!!! Because You'll Do Brilliant.

  3. Another fantastic card. I think you made the best decision to use black & white as it really does show all the detail off brilliantly.

  5. Morning Phill, another beautiful mono card showing another really useful new die from your very first die collection bet you are ready to burst (I can almost hear that dirty excitable laugh as you go for launch tomorrow) you trying to out shine Tim Peak ? Well you will be just as successful you just won't take up 2 hour's of Newsnight - you will look so much smarter than Tim as you orbit the earth tomorrow lol. The rest of the collection looks fab, I'm just hoping I don't have to 'smuggle' them in and shred the receipt before hubby see's it !! Anyway, I know they will be joining my family of dies sometime soon as everyone of the sentiments are going to be so useful and for every occasion - I'm 100% they will soon be hard to find due to sell out's

    Enjoy and celebrate tomorrow.

  18. Hi Phill
    I do like to see cards where the lovely words are the focal point and " Thinking of You " is such a versatile sentiment. The monochrome colours work so well.

  21. Good morning Phill,
    As you say "Thinking of You" is a sentiment that has many uses and could be for many different occasions. And yes i like the fact that you can actually see and read what the sentiment says and not play a guessing game at what it might be. Have a great time showing their merits flower and i think we all know that you enjoy your time in the limelight, lol. Have fun flower,
