White On White and a Cutie Pie























Hi everyone,  Finally a few stolen moments to update my blog.  It has been a hectic past week and it doesn't show any signs of slowing down anytime soon with our Ally Pally show just looming around the corner.  I had been asked by several people to post my white wedding card from the last shows.  Here it is for you.  It was one of my favs from the shows too.  Now if I just had a wedding to go to so it would go to good use!  I used the florish embossing folder in the background and the flowers were made using either the Anemone dies,  the Daisy  dies, the Floral Lace border or the Ironworks border.  The Focal sentiment dies were the Picot edge circles, alternated with the Ironwork accents.  Just so much fun stuff on it, I love all the business (as in busy-ness) to it!  I just had to finish off the edges with the Cosmic Shimmer Pearl PVA glue.  I just LOVE that stuff, it is so easy to use.
 I was working all weekend, but I did get some time to finally meet my new Granddaughter, Leah.  Isn't she a sweetheart!  I hope Sam doesn't mind me showing her off on the blog, but she is just so darn cute!  She is such a good baby too.  She slept all the way through the night, which at six weeks is not that common (as I recall from 25 years ago when mine looked like that!)I just love the little hand up by her face!

Here she is posing for the camera with her little mischievious smile.  Can't you just seeing her breaking hearts already!
I know, I know, I'm a gushing Grandma, huh?!  I can't wait until the next time I get to play with her all weekend (then send her back home with Sam).  Isn't being the Grandma great?!!!  I was made for this role!  All for now, Grandma Sue x

Sue , I know you must have copyright on your designs but is it ok to take some ideas from them e.g.make a card of flowers but different layout ?

I wont be able to comment on your blog for a while as I am having eye surgery in the morning.
No crafting, blogs or computer, how will I cope but on the good side I will enjoy catching up with you in a couple of weeks.

Sweet and beautiful.

Sue said...

Wonderful photos of baby and the card.
This card was one of my favorites, I hope to do one similar this weekend for a friend but I may just pop on a little of the colour day if they let me know it.

Sue

Sheila said...

What a little cutie.You must be so proud.

Sheila said...

The card is amazing.I find by printing them off and putting them in a display folder I have a full library of wonderful inspiration.

Carole said...

I love this card...beautiful...and so is your grandaughter! So cute!
Just want to say as well...your DVD: fabulous and so inspiring. Thank you!

Dawn said...

Your granddaughter is gorgeous!!! and your card is beautiful, I love the white on white, very classy. Your pick of the week (or was it day?) shows were great, you are so easy to watch and your cards are always fantastic, can they order more stock for the next one as I record your shows while I'm working and something has always sold out before I get to watch, also if they sell that fast it shows they need more, we may get to see more of your prep'd card demo's that way!!! Dawn x

Lorraine said...

OH WOW YOUR GRANDDAUGHTER IS SO BEAUTIFUL BLESS ,I LOVE THIS CARD TOO I SAW THE DEMO YOU DID ON THE TV WHICH WAS FABULOUS XX

Christine Faukner said...

Sue now you'll have to do some scrapbooking with an adorable Granddaughter like that.
Love the white on white card I would say its my favourite but when I see the next one I know I'll change my mind. I was over the moon that my card was shown on create and craft when you were on. Take care Christine x

Karen said...

Gorgeous idea - I just wish I had more dies as this would be ideal for a wedding which I've got to make a card for asap. Cute little baby too - I think she will be spoilt by Grandma don't you....?!?!!!

KimberleyG said...

Wow, that's some card! The flowers are beautiful.
Congrats on the grandaughter.

Rachelsmum said...

Beautiful card, white on white looks so elegant and would make some stunning Christmas cards too but like others have said little Leah is far prettier and beats the card hands down. How lucky you are to have such a beautiful granddaughter and such a great job. xxsue

freedom99 said...

Hi sue loved the show my dies arrived on Friday so perfect for a play over the weekend, it was fun.
Your granddaughter is beautiful.
Can i ask if it would be possible to have some embossing folders that are just a bit smaller than A4?
I make a lot of these cards and i can embossed a full piece of card even using your patching idea.
Can wait to see what is next from spellbinders i missed the a few so would love to see some of them again.
Keep up the good work and hope your parents are keeping well.

freedom99 said...

Should say can't embossed a full A4 sheet.lol

Jayscrafts said...

Stunning Card, Sue. And yes, Leah is so cute. Glad you got to meet her at last. See you at Ally Pally (Sunday). Love, Julia xxx

Yvette said...

congratulations Grandma :-) love the name and she looks like a real cutie.
The card is really elegant, white on white can be very cold and boring but you've lifted the whole thing with the beautiful flowers

Uta said...

Your card is so fantastic - I like it.

Congratulations to your cute little granddaughter. She looks so sweet.

Hugs, Uta

violetclouds said...

that white on white card was one of my favourites, it looked so elegant (I suspect from what you said the cameras possibly didnt do it justice but did manage to pick up most of it). Look forward to seeing you at alexandra palace

Barbara Phillips said...

That card is probably more famous than you now, eveyone can tell its a Sue Wilson card, it is absolutely amazing.

What a little beauty!!!! I have a great grandson i drool over and another on the way and whilst their eyes are wide and bright mine are hidden behind thick glass and dim, It's just not fair, but then I'm doing the 'looking'!!!

Grandma said...

What a beauty - and the card is great too!!! Welcome to the world of Grandma's! I too am a Grandma, twice over to a 1 year old and a 5year old - both girls and both beautiful! xxx

Jenny said...

Hi Sue what a beautiful granddaughter. I have 12 grandchildren and 2 great granddaughters and they are also very beautiful. I love your white card too. Lots of love Jenny.

Ruthie said...

Hi Sue what a sweet little angel, she is going to have such fun crafting with you and mum when she gets older. The card is gorgeous and I am planning to make one similar for next year as we have at last a wedding in the family. More people should get married so I can make wonderful cards. I love as you do to use my spellbinders, I can't manage withouth them now. I like to keep the colours simple, say no more than three or preferably just two or even one colour, the spellbinders just look great whatever you do with them. So look forward to seeing your work. many thanks

magpie said...

Hi Sue,"wow" was the word most used when I saw all the beautiful cards that you had made using spellbinders on c&c! Such an inspiration! White on white looks fantastic. I've just received the spellbinders decorative edges,so here's to some great fun experimenting with them! Thank you for your website so that we can look at your cards again. Congratulations on your beautiful granddaughter. No doubt there will be a few broken hearts as she gets older! Love to you and your family x
