Papercuts Launch & Giveaway!

Happy Thursday,

Ive been given the privilege of launching the Brand New collection of Papercuts Dies by Creative Expressions and to celebrate you can win one of the dies launched!  Over the next 3 days I will be posting twice a day at 6am and 6pm and each post has at least one chance to receive a free die.  This is how it works simply leave a comment and i will pick one comment at random from each post ( and more on posts that giveaway more than 1 die)  The winners will be announced on an extra post on Sunday at 6pm!

This first post shows the amazing new Wildflower Frame die set.  The idea behind the paper cuts dies ( some of you may remember the Christmas Papercuts dies that I demoed on Hochanda last year) is that they give the look of hand cut images the style that people spend hours over using a craft knife.  The difference is you get the naive hand drawn look in an image that takes seconds to cut a real win.
















To win this die simply leave a comment on today's post!

back at 6pm!

  6. Morning John, oh WOW what a fantastic idea these paper cuts collections are, I didn't realise they were bringing out new sets, I have some of the Christmas ones and used them a lot last year, looks like I need to have a look at these new ones. I really like what you have done on this card, the blue card stock really does show them to perfection, love it and now have to wait until 6pm to see the next one. Oh and pleased that you had a great time in Frankfurt and arrived home safely, hope you managed to get a lie in this morning.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  18. Good morning John,
    This looks a lovely set of dies, I missed them at Christmas due to my husband being seriously ill and not really crafted since.
    These give the impression of being lazar cut - fantastic.
    Hope you enjoyed Frankfurt.
    Can't wait for 6 o'clock.
    Love and crafty hugs to all

This is just so different though - nothing in the pot even vaguely similar.

    Hope you had a good journey home yesterday

  75. Good afternoon John,
    what a bonnie colour of blue card that you have used this die on flower, such a pretty colour and the die cut image is beautiful. It would look really nice with one of your wee verses in the middle of it. It looks like rosehips, and red hot pokers(sorry i can't remember their real name), lupins and daisies that have been the pattern etched into the design, nice for a nice card for get well or thinking or you or sympathy i think, well that;s the occasions that i would use it for. Thank you John for a lovely idea,
    love and crafty hugs
