Nellie Snellen at Frankfurt

One of my favourite stands at Frankfurt was Nellie Snellen - those of you in the UK will be familiar with her lovely dies, I have a few sets, and she also does lovely stamps, which I didn't know. The card below uses one of her new dies, the circle is cut out with one die, it has slits in it, and you slot the punched shapes into the slits, surprisingly quick to do, and very, very effective, so they have gone on to my 'must have' list 



Here I am (on the right) with the lady herself, she is Dutch, and the most delightful person you could wish to meet, modest and unassuming, just lovely........


I took photos of all her samples, which were lovely, bright and with a great use of colour.....



When I  admired one of the cards, she took it off the wall and gave it to me, so sweet......





The fairy stamps are called Elin, after one of her little granddaughters




She has a new range of punches, which make these lovely flowers.....



They come in pairs, you punch a flower, then pop it in the embossing punch and press, out comes a beautiful leaf or flower with embossed detail. They come in lots of different sizes so you can layer them. Very quick and easy to do.....



She had a range of pre cut aperture cards with net in the apertures, very dainty.....













So there you go, still loads of photos to show you, I'll be back tomorrow with more

  15. Wow, there must have been such a lot to see, I'm surprised you didn't have craft overload! I'm a big fan of Nellie Snellen and have several of her punches and dies. I can't live without her tiny leaf one. Fab cards, aren't they?

  17. Wonderful pics, Enfys! The samples are terrific. I'll have to start saving for those punches. My husband just got back from the Netherlands. Now I know what souvenirs he should have brought back >.< ha ha ;- ) Looking forward to seeing your other great finds. How sweet of her to just take down a card and give it to you too.

  18. Sounds like a wonderful set of dies and punches that she has. I love the card with the netting in the opening, very pretty, I'm thinking I might try to make something like that myself.
    Your card came out beautiful. I'm not quite getting how it goes together though. I'm sure as you use these, I'' figure it out though. Very nice.
