Splendid Circle Halves

Good morning all!  I am sort of in love with this sample, not sure if it's the colours or the layout or the dies, probably just the combination of all of them.  Sometimes you just finish a card and you just want to look at it for a while (okay, well that's just me then! LOL)  This one just sung to me! 
I started with a piece of Graphic 45 paper for the background.  I stamped the top half of my sentiment on the top of the Splendid Circle die template.  I then stamped the bottom part to the sentiment and cut it out so that it was in the very bottom of the circle. Both circles were highlighted with broken china distress ink while in the die.   I cut two larger circles in black to use as mats.  I cut a strip of coordinating aqua card and added an adhesive strip it.  Using our new clear micro beads, I coated the aqua card to give the strip a nice shimmery texture with the beads.  I love the way these look!  I added a tan and black mat to the strip and mounted my circles above and below it showing just the sentiments.  I also wanted to say that I could have just cut the circle in half between the sentiment rather than stamping it twice, but the sentiment was rather tight so I thought it was easier to do two circles.  The other halves of the circles are hidden by the centre strip.  I added one of each of the lovely new layered flowers to the strip topped with a half pearl.  I used some black rhinestone swirls top and bottom for accents and interest.  And, of course, this one just needed the piercing today, don't you think?  All for now, Sue x

All the best Suzie B x

Morning Sue and thank you so much for your new designs. They are FAB. Love this card and all the demo's done last night and this morning.

Carol S. said...

Wow, oh Wow Sue!! This card and all your sample cards last night were just amazingly beautiful. I can't even pick a favourite. Thank you for such inspiration, even to use borders for flowers. Hugs, Carol S.xx

Debbie Tinks said...

SUE JUST ORDERED MY DIES FROM CC
LOVELY DEMOS HOPE THEY DON'T SELL OUT TO QUICK AS WE WAN'T SEE YOUR LOVELY DEMOS.
LOVE THE CARD.

Jackie D said...

Hi Sue,
Just writing this in between shows. Last nights shows showed again just how amazing you are and your own designed dies are as good if not better than the sneaky peek you gave us. All the goodies on offer are super. I loved the design you did cutting the die in half and making the pattern and am going to look at my existing dies as I'm sure that design can be done with some others. I also particularly like these layered flower dies they are going to be so versatile and the ribbon buckles will have lots of uses. I could go on and on but will stop now as I'd better at least make the bed and sort of tidy round as I will be watching all your shows today.
love from Jackie D

Kim said...

Morning Sue

You've done it again, great shows last evening and I'm looking forward to todays shows. Beautiful card, my favourite colour.
I knew you had nothing to worry about regarding your lattice dies. They are great and I'm looking forward to them arriving. Have a good day, hopefully you can have a well deserved rest on Thursday.

Much love

Kim x

Lexie said...

This is beautiful and so different too. Love everything about it.

Sue Yorkshire said...

Morning Sue

Loved your shows last night, missed this mornings for some reason thought I had set them all for recording.

Had to buy your lattice dies and the new mbossing folders and of course the Raspberry mat. (Did wonder if the white one from creative expressions is the same?)

Love your card today, the layout is brilliant

Anonymous said...

Hi Sue, Fabulous Card. I really like the idea of placing intricate designs over a plain shadow background, rather than layering on top of each other. It really shows off the designs. Loved your shows last night. So many stunning cards. Your dies were definitely my favourite, due to the level of embossing detail & versatile design. Can't wait to play with all the dies & microbeads. With Love & Light Theresa. H

Helen O said...

Good morning Sue, well done on your shows last night, loved the demos and samples, my sister and I were going to have the multibuy between us and in the end we had to buy one each lol, because we needed them all!

Star said...

Hi Sue,
Great shows but I am so disappointed with the packages C&C have produced. No Moroccan dies :( and not a good pick of the day for me. Just didn't want all those embossing folders so didn't order the pick of the day. Did get the Persian and Damask and of course your lattice dies, but will just have to wait to get the others when on general sale next month. Got a day off work to watch you so back to the tv. Good luck for the rest of the day.

Many Congratulations on your launch. Could not happen to a nicer lady. Love, Vee xx

Hi Sue, congratulations on the launch last night, all the dies and samples are brilliant as always, with a special mention for your own Lattice dies which I had to get straight away along with some of the lovely new crinkly ribbon & other goodies. Love today's card, that backing paper is beautiful and I would never have thought of splitting up the circles like that, must try it with some of my older dies. Hope you manage to survive all the shows today just so we can continue to get inspiration from your marvellous demos.

Gwenda

Judy said...

Dear Sue, I have all the shows recorded to watch later, but I couldn't resist a little peek when I was home at lunchtime and that was that! Another major Spellbinder purchase!! You really are a tempting lady, the name Spellbinder was made for you because you weave your magic with the dies and cast a spell upon us so that we all want to buy, buy, buy. I did catch you speaking about WAXED PAPER/FREEZER PAPER. I did spot that my local branch of Lakeland now sell it, (also available on line and they have stores nationwide). They call it Food Saver Paper Roll and you can buy a 30cm wide roll that is 25 metres long for £7.99. The catalogue ref is 2395. Here is the link: http://www.lakeland.co.uk/2395/Food-Saver-Paper-Roll. It is a thickish waxed paper, and I think it is similar to the product you were using in your demos. I hope it was OK for me to mention another company here, forgive me if I've broken any rules - just trying to be helpful to crafting buddies.
Thanks again for all the inspiration you give us, it is SO much appreciated.
Love Judy

I've just 'talked to you' on an earlier post, but want to add the same here as I mean it so muchm Sue! "Golly Sue, I'm yet another crafter who'd never thought of doing this! I really learn so much from watching you on C&C/IW & your fab blog about the less obvious uses of nesties. I really thank you for sharing your ideas with us."
Great shows on C&C/IW...what a treat!

Hello Sue,
How did you find time to post your card today with all the shows on C&C?
My comments are usually short, but today I have so much to say. Where do I begin? Oh, I know - you! You are so talented and yet so modest, which is part of your charm. You seem easily embarrassed about your designs - no need to be.
The waxed paper idea is brilliant.

I teach patchwork, so the star card was perfect for me.
I bought your DVD and love the techniques.
In November I bought the bundle of dies and today I ordered your lattice package (couldn't resist)
Thank you so much for sharing all of your tips and inspiration. You are so generous.

What a clever idea. I would never have thought of cutting and offsetting like that. It works really well.

Hi Sue,

Saw your shows today on C&C and Ideal World. Love your new dies and the other new Spellbinders shown today.
Your style is fantastic and I always get some inspiration from the cards you create.

All the very best.
Carol

Wow, OMG Sue what are you doing to me? You cast your spell and I follow….GLADLY:)
What a craftathon…is that a word? Well it is now!
Great shows I thoroughly enjoyed them. Stunning cards through and through!

Can’t wait for my goodies to arrive….Playing will have to wait!
(Linda… Lindyloo, you dark horse! Your card is very pretty card, can’t wait to see more of your creations)

When can we expect another lovely dies from you Sue? Grand dies would be perfect.
Firstly, you deserve a well-earned break!Thank you for the inspirations.

Nichola said...

Hi I have just found your blog Sue and I love it, all the cards are so fabulous, I am really hoping all this inspiration might rub off as I really want to make my parents each a 70th birthday card, they are so special. I will be spending loads of money by the look of it!!. Followed the C&C shows wow you are great. Nichola xx

Melanie181 said...

Well done Sue on your mamoth amount of fantastic demos over the last few days. I LOVE this card. One of my all time favourites. I can't wait for the NEC show to get some more dies ... the Splendid Circles and Romantic Rectangles are at the top of my wish list.

Lindyloo said...

Hi Sue,
before I waffle on as usual may I first say I am so sorry, I missed all the shows today as we got stuck in traffic on the way home and also my grandson was upset which slowed us right down. However, I am watching you now while I type as I recorded them all from Sky.
After watching just the intro on last nights launch I was so in love with your samples, I ordered everything. This sample caught my eye instantly also, the colour and the style are beautiful.
As to 'Sue Wilson Designs' Woe!!! How proud are you my friend, beaming I bet and so you should be. These are so different to anything Spellbinders have done before and that is the first thing that struck me actually: you had your finger on what they were missing and what the public would like. I think you are a very savey lady on the quiet and I think this is the beginning of a very lucrative union for you. (I truly hope so, because besides you deserving it, we the public deserve it as we love you both!)
Please take a big breath now and relax if you are able, we don't want to wear you out too soon, we will need you around for a long time yet...LOL!!
Big hugs and regards Linda

Sue Parish said...

Hi Sue, Loved today's card and thought it looked particularly good on tv. Have had a super day watching all the shows (and have recorded them too). Thought you were amazingly perky after so little sleep! Love the lattice dies especially but all the dies and demos were great and I will enjoy seeing them all again when I watch my recordings. Glad to hear you've got another show tomorrow morning - otherwise would be have been feeling very sad that it was all over. Thank you for all your hard work and it's been appreciated very much. Hope you get a bit more sleep tonight!
Sue x

Victoria said...

I've loved your shows this week. Another lovely card with great colour combination.

Annie C said...

Hi Sue, I am new to Spellbinders but have watched your shows several times. I watched the POTD shows and ordered the Grand Calibur and set of 4 M-Bossibilities, and even got my email read out on the midnight show ! Already ordered some dies so am looking forward to receiving my parcel ! Your cards are truly amazing, and now I've found your Blog I am well and truly hooked ! Regards, Anne x

Ali W said...

Absolutely just love this card, you are so clever Sue, I just don't know where you get all your ideas from! Your shows are all so inspirational. I have a sneaky feeling that this is the design of the card I may have won out of the cup of chance, I do hope so! I don't know where you get all your energy from, you're so amazing.

Knerten said...

What a great idea, splitting the circle in two this way :-) Great card.

Claire said...

Thank you for all your hard work in making and showing such beautiful cards.

I've taped all your shows and have watched about 4 so far, as I am saving them to savour at the weekend.

If money wasn't an option I could happily buy everything on your shows including the Creative Expressions ones.

Claire
