Question Crealies?

Here is one of the most gorgeous cards I have ever seen and this person's blog is amazing, too:

S6300594_by_Elly64 by Elly64 - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

What I was wondering if anyone in the US has purchased or used the dies from Crealies that Elly used to make her amazing cards? I have found that they are in shop in the Netherlands, I think and was wondering also if they would be so expensive to get to the states that it would not be cost affective. Any more info on these dies would be greatly appreciated.

Other than the flower and the rectangular piece under the center medallion, that card is made from Spellbinders dies.

Ok, mlehemer, let's see if this helps.

#1, I'm with CathyC, I see a lot of Spellbinders in there. But you said you wanted the flower. So, I followed a hunch to Ecstasy Crafts. On the link I'm providing, go about 1/3 of the way down and you'll begin seeing flower dies. There are several styles.

If the link doesn't work, go to the store I mentioned above, search under "dies" and go to page 4/6. They're being sold under the name "Joy! Crafts," but I think they're the same ones. If not the same, they're very similar. The reason I think they're the same is that, if you go on to page 6/6, they are selling multi-frame dies which I have purchased under the name "Nellie Snellen." (If you can read the small print, the pkg says that name). Anyway, I'm still thinkin' these flowers may be the same as are on those beautiful cards by Elly64.

I don't know where Ecstasy is, but I think they're at least on this side of the Atlantic.

On the other hand, I've ordered many times from small European companies (including directly from Magnolia) and had nothing but good experiences. Sometimes shipping can be pricey, but there is usually a currency converter on those sites. If there isn't, you can always go to xe.com for currency conversion. Remember, however, that the dollar has taken yet another nose-dive recently.

Here's the link: Ecstasy Crafts

If none of these options work for you, Elly64 provides her email address on her blog. You can either ask her via that, on her card, or PM her here. On her blog, she seemed very open to being contacted.

HTH, binx

OK, I'm back. And now I'm even more sure I'm steering you in the right direction! Compare this link with her blog: Cutting & Embossing Dies

Some of the dies are identical; look at the birds and the last item!

Thanks for your input. I will definately bookmark that site for those birds but I am most interested in the flowers right now. I'll wait and see if anyone else comes forward and if no luck, maybe I will try to contact the company directly. The following link shows what I am looking for:


Welkom bij Crealies

If I'm looking at the right ones on your link, they look like the same flowers I attached the link and instructions to on my first post. Did you see them?

I think this is the flower you're looking for, but the shop is in the Netherlands also. I have bought several Crealies items from JJ Paperarts on eBay, but it looks like her inventory is down right now.

bumping to see if anyone else has some info. The Ecstasy site didn't have the same flower but did have some pretty cool dies and will keep them in mind.

I have purchased from Ecstasy craft for nearly 10 years. I buy my parchment craft supplies from them. They are the North American distributor for Pergamano and several other brands.
They are a very reliable company
They are located in Canada, but have a tiny location in up state New York so their customers in the USA only pay USA shipping costs.

I was at Ecstasy Crafts open house about a month ago and they had a lot of stuff that didn't all appear on their web site. Try to contact them for the information. They are very nice people and will do their best to help you. I love their products and their prices are reasonable.

Friends and I bought some of the Crealies dies direct a while ago. We just split the shipping costs to Canada. A friend of mine had gone to Holland and met up directly with Anna and that was how we found out about them. I have some border punches. They work in the Cuttlebug but you have to use paper shims.

Red face crealies

I have one of those dies given to me by a friend. I wanted to buy some more but I find them very expensive. They cost about 12 euros ($16)each and are not very big. You can see them all on the creators site Welkom bij Crealies
and the only real advantage is that they cut 5-6 flowers in one go. I don't think the postage would be too high as they are very lightweight.

Hope this helps,
Hugs,
Joanne

I too want a U.S. source for the Crealies dies but I want the die leaves that I see on Elly's cards. I have talked to a vendor that I order from to see if she can get them to sell. Hopefully that will solve the problem.

keep in mind that if you order from ecstasy crafts you have to pay extra for the exchange rate...they have a NY location but credit cards are all run through their Canadian office.
Ask me how I know...I found that to be deceiving that it isn't noted somewhere.

Amber My Credit card charges 4% for currency conversion. I ordered as a "retail" customer and my credit card went through as USA with no currency conversion charge and was shipped from the NY location so I didn't have to pay duty. However, I only ordered once a year because I had to order $125 to get free shipping.

I have not ordered from Ecstasy for at least a year, but I ordered from them for 10 years before that when I did parchment craft.

I wonder if the credit cards being process in Canada is just for business accounts or if they have changed it for retail customers too?

Default crealies die or something compatable.

I will check them out. I was trying to find something here in the States so I could get it sooner. And save on all the extra fees. I have been looking all over for something similar. I love the look of that tiny piece in the center. I thought maybe a snowflake die but so far I have not found any. So if anyone Can help me find a die I could use in place of the crealies die if I cannot find one here in the States? Thanks Debi

I'd like to suggest Heartfelt Creations. They have all sorts of layered flower dies and matching stamps, too!
