Necessities

Hi bloggers!  Next up is the new Necessities category releases.  We are starting with the new Vintage Perfume Bottle die set.  Shown here, they are a perfect set for making those girly cards.  This set would work well for teenage girls too, which can be a difficult make for many of us.  There are three different perfume bottle designs included in the set.  Each one has a separate cutting edge so they can be cut in more than one  colour for versatility.  Just leave a comment and tell me what you think of them and you will be automatically entered into the drawing to win this set.  The last post for today will be up online at 6pm today.  I hope you will be able to join us back here then for a peek.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. WOW WOW WOW What a gorgeous card, very elegant and stylish. These Perfume Bottle dies are fantastic and are going to be so useful and versatile. Can see some beautiful bottles been made out of these dies. Hoping you show the Handbag dies next as both of these sets are on my list to have now along with a couple of others. All of your cards have been gorgeous over the last few days hilighting all of your amazing new dies. You are a very clever lady and i just wish i had half of your talent. See you later.
Best Wishes.

Sam Smithard said...

To My Wonderful Dear Friend Sue,
Your "Creative Skills" Are Just So Superior To Anyone Else
I Love That You Think Outside The Box With Your Dies, Your Cards Are Stupendous Works Of Art
"The Perfume Dies" Can Be Utilised In So Many Different Ways.
I'm Sure If Anyone's Talented Enough They Could Even Add A Tag With The Brands
Of "The Person's Favourite Perfume" With The Card (Which Would Be Fun)
This Card Would Look Just Stupendous In Black/Antique Gold Such Rich Opulent Colours Together
Looking Forward To 6 o'clock For The Next "Masterpiece"
Sue, Thank You For Sharing
Lots Of Love Also Huge Hugs 🤗
Love From Sam xxx

lorraine eastwood said...

Good afternoon lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

I have been so looking forward to this set of dies, anticipating wondrous cards made by your fair hand. I love perfume bottles and have collected them for many years....it's difficult keeping hold of the stoppers however, as Brodie loves to knock them off and use them as a football:-)
There are an infinite amount of possibilities with these dies, teenage girls who can be tricky customers would be well pleased with a card featuring these delightful little bottles, as would many sophisticated ladies of taste and elegance.
I will most definitely be splashing out on these beauties, they are an absolute must have.
See you all later after 6pm, hope that you are enjoying your Easter Weekend.

Crafty hugs

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
I'm really sorry but I'm starting here today and will work backwards! Awkward - me??? Noooo!
Oh dear I wasn't going to buy any more Dies - that has gone out the window! The perfume bottles look lovely . A very useful addition to our crafty Arsenal!
Just wanted to say thanks to everyone from Maureen! I got strict instructions rather late last night to be sure to thank everyone for their kindness! It's not easy to sleep in her Ward!! she will be in Hospital until at least Tuesday. She has a small fracture picked up on a scan but not an X-ray - so it's wait to see what happens next. Hopefully not surgery!
Sorry for this Sue! I will only do this once .
Sorry about your Mum Craftysuetoo! Thinking of you.
Happy Easter Day to everyone!
Love to all, Myra ( Friend of Maureen!) xxx

Ah, the perfume bottle dies are so beautiful and your card is gorgeous too. June is right they will work really well with the Retail Therapy set. A definite for young lady cards.
Myra, thanks for update on Maureen, poor thing, hope she is not in too much pain. I hope Geirge is coping well, he has a lot going on at the moment. Fingers crossed no surgery required. How thoughtful to have arranged a wheelchair for the gang meet up, you are a lovely lot.
Pat, turkey and ham sounds delicious, enjoy your family meal.
Laine, I hope all goes well with Mums procedure tomorrow, when will she be home.
Hugs to all, specials ones fir poorly and missing friends.

Hi Sue and everyone

Just notices that my earlier comment didn't post. I must not have published properly. I think I said something along the lines of very versatile little bottles, great to be able to back them too.
Nice card, I love the embossed border and of course the flower. Which I suspect is one of your new ones...

Oh my! A fabulous card, using fabulous dies. So versatile and so much fun. I know so many ladies a card made with these dies would work for. I thought the Indonesian Collection is my favorite but now I don’t know anymore. No doubt tomorrow I will probably like something else a little more! Because you do not stop to amaze me, Sue!

Myra – Hope Maureen doesn't require surgery. Fingers crossed. I hope she feels better soon.
