Oh my,.. I can't quite believe it, but, my new 'From The Heart' craft dies are released by Creative Expressions today!!
I've called this my 'From The Heart' Collection and these are sentiment dies (as you would probably have expected from me) and they are designed around our friends, families and the events/occasions that we come across in our lives,..
I've also designed co-ordinating relative sets too, so we are able to achieve a beautiful, seamless finish on our projects..
I'm now allowed to tell you (as they are released today) that there are 9 sets in the collection, 6 sets with full sentiments and 3 sets with relatives :-)
All featuring the same, beautiful font and the connecting heart theme, and all with extra heart dies to complete the look.
I will be adding more relatives and some numbers to co-ordinate soon :-)
And so, I have two more cards to show you, that I've made myself, still in the black and coconut white themes, but this time, I have purposely left all the extra embellishments off the card, no flowers (I know - shocking!), but, I wanted you to see how fabulous these dies are as stand alone sets,.. all I've used are the extra heart dies that come in the sets (and a border and corner of Sues)
Here is card no.1, this is a 17cm x 22cm card, featuring the Happy Birthday To You die and Grandma from the Grandparents set (I've made sure that they were not forgotten in my sets,.. they're too important and should be cherished!)
I love this card, quite simple for me, bit of embossing, bit of die cutting, few pearls (well, lot's!) but, as you've heard me say hundreds of times,.. look where your eyes are drawn,... to the sentiment..
I've made good use of the scraps of black and coconut white card too by using the extra heart dies and creating dimension (putting them on a foam pad lol)

And here's card no.2,.. this is a 17cm x 17cm card, featuring the With Very Best Wishes' die and the Female relatives set..
The hearts around the outside of the frame are from black card and the extra heart dies and I've covered them in Glacier Ice Glitter Jewels :-)
Classic, straight lines and texture from the embossing folder make this stylish card really easy to create.
The focal points (now this will shock you ha ha) are the sentiment and daughter die cuts,.. Add these to some matting and layering and different levels on foam tape to create dimension and and you're onto a winner.

Coupled with a little glacier ice and some pearl strips/corners and you really can't go wrong...
The little tiny pearls on the hearts add a gentle finishing touch that brings the whole design together.
I really hope you like my 'From The Heart' craft dies,.. I've been so careful to design them for us, as crafters, to use for the projects and people we make the most for... family and friends...
The complete collection of dies will be on my website today, with delivery being tomorrow, we will ship them out as soon as they are booked in to stock..
Here's your quick link to the Craft Dies by Phill Martin section on my website :-)
I will give away one of my samples today, 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 later on this afternoon.. I will go through the comments from all my 'reveal' posts :-)
(Thanks so much for all your kind words too - much appreciated!)
