We're easing you gently into the new year's launches with this small but perfectly formed Blooming Frames collection! There are four delightful metal die sets as well as a coordinating 8x8" paper pad in this collection, all designed to work together beautifully. Each individual die set has heaps of versatility as there are different ways to use them.
The Blooming Border nesting die set is a collection of 13 metal dies, varying in size from a mini 0.4x0.4" up to a giant 7.7x7.7". Also contained alongside the nesting dies in this set are four mini flower dies - perfect for embellishing your cards, scrapbooks, and other papercrafting projects. To top it all off, this set comes with its own magnetic storage panel, to make storing your dies together a doddle!
The Floral Lace Border die set is a three-in-one design that allows you to either cut into cardstock for an embedded look, create a decorative edge on your cards, gift boxes, and panels by using one of the outline border strip dies, or cut out completely for intricate toppers, using both outline border strip dies. For mini floral embellishments, snip away the individual blooms within the design. Layer onto acetate and colour in for a stained-glass window effect. Ink through for an abstract floral look, or paper-piece for vibrant, colourful designs. The possibilities are endless!
Next up is the Floral Lace Background metal die set. Containing four nesting metal dies, including a decorative frame, two outline frames and a central floral background, this set can be used both together and independently. The main floral background has no outside cutting lines to enable you to both cut into your cardstock for a decorative background (perfect for the top of a gift box) or, when used alongside one of the outline frames, cut out for a decorative panel. By cutting the central panel and one of the outline frames together out of sturdy acetate, you will be able to create a reusable stencil for inky creations – great for mixed media fans!
The final die is the Floral Lace Diamond metal die set, containing three individual dies, sized to nest within each other perfectly. The largest and smallest dies have a cute stitched-effect design, while the middle die contains a fabulous floral edging. Stack them together with foam pads for great dimensional matt and layer results, making your toppers and stamped images demand attention on your cardmaking, box-making, and scrapbooking projects.
To complement the dies, we also have a beautiful, delicate Floral Dreams 8x8" patterned paper pad. Each pad contains 48 double-sided patterned sheets (two each of 24 designs) and is printed on high-quality 160gsm paper. You will find colourwash backgrounds in pinks, blues, and yellows, pretty butterfly and floral prints, and a variety of coordinating patterns. The 8x8” size means that these are perfect for most card sizes and could also be used on gift boxes, scrapbook layouts, home décor creations, and a whole host of other papercrafting projects.
