On Wednesday I had the chance to demonstrate a series of dies that were brilliant and that all had one thing in common… they are HUGE. Big is beautiful!
First up was the Tattered Lace Picture Perfect Rectangle & Oval Die Collection. These are very popular and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they had sold out by the time you read this. They are massive dies, much bigger than my hand! There’s the oval frame, so you can make a standalone frame, and you also get the die to cut out the centre oval, which means you can use it as an aperture, a frame, or a matt and layer. The same principle applies to the Picture Perfect Rectangle Die except that the swirl pattern on the rectangle is completely different from that of the Oval die – there’s no repetition.
The great thing about these dies is the ‘snippability’ – they don’t have to be just used as frames, you can cut into them to use parts of the swirl pattern as fantastic embellishments.
Next up was the Double Shutter Card Die Set. This is another enormous die, and again, this is proving to be very popular indeed. It’s a concept card die – the largest die enables you to cut out the card and the remaining sixteen dies in the set are used to create embellishments. The only limit really is the limit of your imagination.
Finally came the Concertina Card Dies – I’ve saved the biggest til last, as this is a massive collection of no less than FIFTY ONE dies. It enables you to cut two different sized concertinas and the rest of the dies allow you to totally go to town with your embellishments.
As I say… big is beautiful!
