My new 'From The Heart' Craft Dies - Only 2 days to go!

Good Afternoon Everyone

Yep,... I'm still excited! (and a teeny bit nervous too!)

There are only 2 days to go until the 4th February,.. a landmark date for me as it will see the release of my new 'From The Heart' craft dies,.. my first ever collection and the result of several months of designing, testing and perfecting!

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 acheive a beautiful, seamless finish on our projects..

I can't show you the full range until they are officially released on Thursday, but what I can do is show you some of the cards that I've made with them,.. so, I'm going to show you a card a day up until Thursday, so you'll get a 'feel' for the styling etc...

So, here goes,.. this is card number 2,.. Featuring one of the sentiment dies and the co-ordinating male and female relative sets :-)

I've particularly made sure that you can actually read what the sentiment says! And also that they will all co-ordinate and work with each other too :-)

This is a 21cm x 17cm card, again made with Black & Coconut White Foundations card,.. I've made all my samples with this colour theme as I love the combination and they photograph particularly well :-)
Of course, as they are dies,.. you'll be able to cut them in your favourite colours!
I've also used some of Sues' dies and, I hope you agree, the combination of Sues' flowers etc and my sentiments is a perfect match!

Here is the completed card
(photographed in my craft room at home)






















Here's a close up of the centre of the card,. if you know me, you'll know that I say (I know,... frequently! ha ha) that the main focal point of our cards should be the words, the sentiment, what we are trying to convey... this is true not only of cards I make with my stamps, but now with my dies too :-)














And here is a close of up the Mum & Dad die cut,..
I so love having matching products,.. it makes it so easy to get a really 'finished' look.






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!

  21. Good evening Phill,
    i have just found your crafty blog today through the power of the lovely Sue. I love the cards you make as you are what i would call a perfectionist and it's not just got to be ok, it's got to be right. I am one these crafters that everything has to match perfectly(you know the proper pain that just can't let things go, yip that's me) and i so love how i can buy the full set of the different products that all match with each other but hey i've been like that since i was a wee lassie so i'm not going to change at this late stage of the game. I am so glad i have finally found out where you are hiding as i only ever see you on tv and the quick squint that they give off the beautiful makes that are around the studio. If your dies are anything like your stamps and your embossing, wax, powders, pearl drops, sprays and texture paste namely that they all match for complete control freaks like me that does not do messy in any shape or form, precise yes, co ordinated - yes, different - yes that's me, not higglety pigglety. Thank you Phill for a beautiful piece of art,
    crafty hugs
