Friday Die Day

Hello friends

I am excited to bring you this Friday Die Day ...because I love it!
This is 'Just Because' - a stamp and die set combined!
 It is a six piece floral die set with ten stamps that include floral images and sentiments
It is from the new Spellbinders® Celebra'tions line.

The dies measure:
Flower 1 Centre – ⅜”
Flower 1 – 1⅜ x 1¼”
Flower 2 Centre – ½”
Flower 2 – 1⅞ x 1⅝”
Flower 3 Centre – ⅝”
Flower 3 – 2¼ x 2”
The return of the tag!
I've selected the largest flower stamp and randomly stamped onto the tag using
Cool Caribbean Celebra'tions ink pad.
(My first experience of using these ink pads and they stamp wonderfully,
it is a mixture of blending dye and pigment ink and can be used on paper, fabric, wood,
acrylic - just heat set on non-paper materials to become permanent).
 I've also selected Sea Spray and Delightful Daisy to create further flowers and their centres.
The flower dies match perfectly over the stamped images.
This is how they look cut/embossed.
I then layered up the flowers with small 3D Foam Squares on top of the stamped flower images.
I stamped Happy Birthday (one of the useful sentiment stamps included in this set)
 onto white card and tied around some of the Celebra'tions Linen Thread.
I'm totally hooked on these now...beware you could see them often!
This 'Just Because' stamp die set is available on the website here.
There is also the very lovely 'Sweet Treats' (a definite future FDD).

Tomorrow is Knit and Natter in the shop - as mentioned slightly different
in that we are asking for a £2.50 contribution, this ensures plenty of cake, tea/coffee
and the two chosen charities receive a larger proportion.
It would be lovely to see you if you are in Gravesend,
remember you don't need to knit, just come along for the natter!

Take care friends - have a wonderful weekend.

Morning Christine, This stamp and die set is really lovely as your finished tag shows. I hadn't realised the Spellbinders do ink pads, I will have to look at those.
I love the Sweet Treats die and stamp set too, looking forward to seeing your 'make up' with these too.
Enjoy your knit and natter tomorrow, I too wish I could pop in.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

I wish I could get to your shop, maybe one day: ) Have a good day. Take care.

Great to see how the stamps and dies work together. Wish I lived closer too I can't knit but I like a natter and love cake! X

Sandra said...

Good Morning Christine,
Oh I do love a tag! Don't those flowers look gorgeous when they are stamped, cut and embossed, it brings them to life!
I love the font on that set too, that "happy birthday" looks lovely, almost Art Deco in style?!
I too wish I could pop along to knit and batter with you all, those cakes look divine! Fancy a road trip Mrs B !
Enjoy yourselves lucky ladies!
Wishing you all a lovely weekend ladies
Crafty hugs
Sandra xxxx

Like the dies Christine, but the stamps are a bit boring, you could use coloured paper for the dies, and they wouldn't look much different.

On the other hand, those stamp pads are brilliant if they will work on fabric too!

Carolyn H said...

Have a wonderful Knit and natter tomorrow oh how I wish I could just pop in and join you,those cakes look real yummy. Love Carolyn

What a lovely idea - a first for Spellbinders I think. The stamps and dies could be used independently as well. Useful simple sentiments too. Enjoy your knit and natter day.

Janice said...

Pretty tag today Christine, love this new stamp and die set. Great FDD, thank you!
Just returned from 5 day break at Potters, Hopton on Sea with the family, so need to have a catch up on your blog later.
Enjoy your Knit & Natter tomorrow, hoping you have plenty of visitors.

A useful die set Christine, and good to see the new ink pad in action. Anne x

Pat S Witney said...

Hi Christine
Liking the dies and stamps and nice to see them being used. I didn't know that Spellbinders did ink pads. We never seem to see them being used anywhere. Is this. New venture for them I wonder?.

Elaine said...

Amazing tag ! Such a fab set. Hope the knit & knatter went well x
