Die'sire Sneak Peeks

The fabulous new Embossalicious embossing folders are being showcased on Ideal World and Create and Craft this week. These folders are fabulous and range in size from 6" x 6", 8" x 8" up to a massive A4, the creative opportunities are endless.
I am showcasing a couple of my favourites today, the first being the Celtic Frame, giving just a touch of embossing in each corner, perfect for framing a central focal piece.
The central panel has been embossed with the Argyle embossing folder and coloured with peacock feathers Distress Ink. The fabulous dimensional flower in the centre is created with the large and small Sunflower Die'sire Quilling dies. I have coloured the edges of the die cuts with Distress Inks. I also sprayed the central flower with gold Spray and Sparkle.
The Argyle embossing folder has also been used on my second card, this time colouring with ripe persimmon Distress Ink and the papers give this card more of a vintage feel. Again the dimensional flowers have been created using the fabulous sunflower Quilling die.
My favourite samples from all those that I created for the show is this heart wreath, decorated with many Die'sire Quilling dies, including the large and small sunflower and the blissful flower and again spraying with gold Spray and Sparkle.
I added lots of large and small wooden hearts to give dimension and further interest to the wreath and then tied a piece of twine and double bow to hang.
So difficult to just pick one favourite, I also love the Paisley embossing folder too used here in the background on my tag accordion.
This is the reverse of my accordion again decorated using the Paisley embossing folder and those fabulous quilling flowers and stamps from Sheena Douglass. 

Hope you have enjoyed a few more of the samples I made for the Die'sire DT.  Look out for the shows on Create and Craft.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Was so very sure I was not going to but the flower dies but after seeing your fabulous creations am now wanting all of them...
Just love the Celtic Frame and how you have used the Argyle emb. folder within it. Would never have thought to use all three things together.
Thanks for your talent and inspiration.
