Hello

Hi everyone!  Thank you so much for the astounding support you gave me during the shows yesterday.  I was so overwhelmed by all the kind emails and comments, it truly was very special for me.  I was very nervous as it is a bit different when your name is on them,  but I was over the moon knowing that you like my latest set of Spellbinder die templates.  This is one of my favourite cards that I made with them, not sure why, but I was very happy with it when I finished.  It's funny like that, sometimes the simplest cards just sing to you!  I think it is the flowers made from my old dictionary with the faux screw brad centres that just made me smile.  I used a strip of one of my favourite papers.  I had to piece it to get it the length that I wanted though.  The paper pad is a 6" x 6" size but I needed my strip to be 7 1/2" long.   It pieced so nicely that I didn't even need the flowers to hide the join either!  Skirting that strip of decorative papers top and bottom is the new Vintage Lace border from the Accent set.  I love this border (and it makes stunning flowers too)
These flowers were cut using the Rose Creations die templates.  I distressed them a bit using Black Soot ink and messed the petal up a bit.  You have to be a bit careful with this paper as it is from 1943 (even older than me!)  I felt it needed a little bit of a swirl so I used the Heartfelt Creations swirl die from the Iris set.  The swirl was cut from another coordinating paper from the same paper pad as my strip.  It is quite pretty with it's gold filligree in it.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with another of the Accent pieces.  I inked it with Black Soot distress ink while in the die for interest.  I cut the same shape in black and split it in half and mounted it behind to serve as a shadow.  You can see a close up below of it.  I paper pierced the edges using my Tim Holtz design ruler to complete the card.  What do you think of this one?    All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, watched your shows yesterday an sent an email with a card I made attached and was lucky enough to have it read out. Did not get pulled out of the cup though but was thrilled to be "on TV". Now back to your dies, what can I say other than they are beautiful, can't wait to get mine to try out.
Great to have you back

Sorry Sue, I forgot to say a big thank you for going to the trouble to find he answer to my query on the neutral card stock. I know now that I can safely use it also on scrabook projects.

Another beautiful sample, these dies are a must have.

Debby Berry said...

Welcome back if was great seeing you on TV seems like visiting a wonderful friend. The dies are on the way and I am really excited to create some Sue Wilson cards, glad that I have boxes of wax paper lol. The cars du jour is fantastic I especially loved the oh la la card. Guess I need to now get some feathers. Was inspired to start making my own hat pins this week too. Thanks for being my creative muse and guru.. Cheer m'dears

Sonia Jones said...

Welcome back Sue. It was great to see you last night. I hope your jet lag doesn't last too long! The dies are gorgeous and a definate must have! I like this card and with those faux screw brads would even be ok for a guy. I will definately be getting these dies. Soniax

CraftyAnn said...

Glad to see you back on the TV. It would be nice if C&C would give you a regular show like Barbara Gray, ie In the Classroom with Sue Wilson, at least you would be able to demostrate at a slower pace and not have the presenters interupting. This card is stunning and I love the new dies, cannot wait for mine to arrive.
Take care

Hi Sue,
wonderful to see you back on the tv. Well you kept that a secret your lovely design dies. Well I think you know by now that we all think they are fantastic, pity I can't afford to buy them just yet, but they are going straight to the top of my long, long list. Now for today's card, I just love everything about it wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. Finished a 90th Birthday Card last night and guess what I used your idea of the pearly dots it look fab.
Have a great crafty day everyone.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Beautiful, larticularly love the flowers.

Maryann said...

Unfortunately I wasn´t able to watch your show yesterday, as we had a fall out on our internet connection, I´m afraid, and I was soo pissed, cause I had really put my nose up to this. SIGH.
But the card here is absolutely stunning and I really love it a lot, so if that´s the kind we can make with your new dies, I know, I´m going to love them too, but boy would I really have wanted to see it all on here.
You will never need to worry about anything hun as you always does so awesome work with anything you´re doing, so just relax and enjoy it sweet Sue. And please have a wonderful week-end ahead here now okay.

Jane in Spain said...

nesscraftyqueen said...

Very pretty once again, I love the rose creations dies, I have made lots of them using three of the large petals and then making the paper roses on your tutorial and layering them, it makes the rose look more like a rose that has been blooming for a few weeks rather than bud-like. Sue, do you know how hard it is to find an old dictionary, I really love the idea of using old text and had to settle for an old copy of Jane Eyre rather than a dictionary but I'll keep looking in every charity shop I pass by!

Val in Spain xxx said...

Good Morning Sue. Wonderful card today as they all are. Lovely to see you on C+C yesterday. bought both sets of dies and a set of word stamps. Watched both shows in awe and the whole show sang to me.

Hi Sue, I love this card, especially the colour combo. I too love making flowers out of old books. I would love to use an old dictionary but in Berkshire they are rather expensive - they are considered antiques, even with pages missing. Thank goodness for distress inks. With Love & Light Theresa.H

Hi Sue
Great to see you back on TV you have been missed. I ordered my dies before I saw what they looked like,hopefully C&C won't be too long delivering. You needn't worry about people not loving your dies you have the knack of meeting everybody's needs. I love today's card and since you did a demo using the dictionary I very often use the same, so thanks for the inspiration.

Love the card these new dies are stunning. Caught one of the shows yesterday it was good to see you back.

Christine Hussey said...

Hi Sue, great shows yesterday and your dies are fantastic! No need to worry they are a definite hit! Afraid will have to wait a little longer to obtain them as craft budget rather low at the moment. Another stunning card with no bow LOL, but it doesn't need it with those gorgeous flowers! Your use of papers and colours is awesome! Agree with CraftyAnn if you can fit it in to your ever increasing workload, if yes we will all badger C&C. Hope you get the rest you deserve and get rid of that jet lag. Hugs, Christine H xx

Jean said...

Hi Sue it's great to see you back. These are my favourite dies, I just love them.

Hi Sue, I watched your show yesterday afternoon and recorded the earlier one so will hopefully be able to watch that over the weekend. Your new die designs are stunning. You have done an amazing job with them. I especially love the lace border that you've used on this card. That one has been added to my wishlist :) xx

Cornish Emma said...

This is also one of my favourite cards you have made, for me its because its not girlie girl and flouncy!!! Love the flowers, maybe thats a good way to recycle old books which are falling apart.
Sue you new dies are to die for!!

Hello Sue,
So pleased to have you back with us, the dies are just georgeous and YES I have ordered both sets cant wait for them to arrive.
I agree with CraftyAnn it would be great to have a Sue Wilson show (what about it C&C)
The shows yesterday were great looking forward to seeing some of those beautiful cards on your blog. have a good day, Bren

cats whiskers said...

Hi Dear fabulous shows yesterday, have a question, I am having problems getting the die cut out of the Dies, I saw you used waxed paper is that just the same as you would use for the kitchen or something special. I need Some, like Now!!!!!
Bought your new Dies cannot wait for postman now xx

Anonymous said...

I am back again,
I just saw catswiskers question - I rub my dies with tumble drier sheets, one sheet last ages and your die cut falls out of the die (so do tape them in)
Look forward to seeing you on C&C on 20th Sue.

Saw your show yesterday, and they are lovely dies, Sue, but I won't order from C&C as they charge £10 per item to ship to Ireland. I'll look for them elsewhere, as they are really pretty.

LOVELY CARD SUE

"Talk to the Tail" said...

Sue you're dies are gorgeous as is your card. I'll need to go round the charity shops looking for old books now as I love your flowers too. I've never seen brads that look like screws before so I'm off to trawl the W.W.W. to see if I can find them LOL :0)

CraftyJo said...

Haven't had a chance to see your show yet - I recorded it as we had visitors yesterday :( I do like the look of your new dies though.

OMG ribbon and one stamp sets sold out, thankfully I did get both sets of your Dies don't know why you worry about weather we will like them, I don't know what others think but I cant wait for your shows to be on C&C waiting for new products. The new dies are beautiful.

This card is lovely especially the vintage style flowers. I have the brads, got them from Sam Poole. You deserve a complete rest now until next week!!!

Sue Parish said...

Hi Sue, I think this is my new favourite card! It's absolutely beautiful. Will be able to make it when your new dies arrive in the post - I ordered both sets, they are so pretty I know I will use them lots. The tear drop lace was sold out (not long after the 11am show began!) but I know Sam Poole sells it too.
It was lovely to see you again on tv. I just felt rather guilty when you were disappointed that the graphic 45 papers were sold out as I was one of those who bought them! Already have some and they're such great quality and designs.
Hope you have a restful weekend,
Sue x

Hi Sue, it was lovely to see you on our screens yesterday and I have treated myself to both sets and can't wait to play with them. Your card is fabulous and I love the flowers with the screw head brads they are so effective.

Hi Sue, my first time adding a comment here and hopefully not the last. Thank you so much for all your dedication and inspiration. I love your cards and I think everyone feels motivated to try to emulate your designs. They are so gorgeous. Love love love them to bits. Many thanks, love Ann

Love the clean look of this card, Sue!!! You use things that I put aside to use one day (the old dictionary. I put one away last week, instead of recycling it with my newspapers!!! You've given me the incentive to actually use it!!!) thanks again for sharing your beautiful cards.
Anne with an E

Hello and Welcome back!!!

Congratulations on your new design...they're beautiful! The sample cards are so pretty, can't wait to re-create your designs. I watched and recorded the show on C&C...my hubby told me to watch it later but I was glued to the TV...in the end he gave up!! LOL...I'm glad you're better and back on our screens but do take care not to over do it. My local charity shop still looking for an old Dictionary that I can use for my crafting....I will re-create this pretty card, wish I have an old dictionary to copy the flowers. Lots of love, Aggie xxx

Chrisspi said...

Love the die you used for the sentiment on this card - reminds me of a sweet! Sorry I missed your shows but will see if I can find the videos online as they are always inspirational.

Joan Dickinson said...

Beautiful card, and very different.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, Glad to see you safely back and well again. I didn't get to see the shows until last night and don't know what you were worrying about - your new dies are terrific and I especially like the border die. Top of my wish list now. Today's card is lovely as usual.

Looking forward to next week's shows to see what else you bring us.

For Cats Whiskers and anyone else with the same question, since Sue told us about silicon paper I have been using non-stick baking parchment from Lakeland, not too expensive and it works a treat.

This is gorgeous.

Lynn said...

Hi Sue, I didn't see the shows 'live' I was at work, so sky+ came into play. I watched the first one this morning with my early morning coffee.....amazing dies and amazing samples, I ordered both sets yesterday lunchtime knowing that they'd be brill. Can't wait for them to arrive Lynn xx

Teresa said...

Hi Sue, Couldn't watch the shows live as was working but recorded them and watched the first last night and will watch the other tonight. The dies are just gorgeous and had to order them - can't wait for them to come but missed out on the tear drop lace unfortunately. This card is stunning - love those backing papers, what brand are they? and please tell me how you round your corners. Thanks Love Teresa (Nottingham) xxx

Tracie Carmody said...

Love Love Love this card and love the way the flowers have turned out. Gonna have to get some of that black soot. I would have thought it would be too dark but it isn't when used gently is it.

I only got to see about 10 minutes yesterday which is dissappointing but at least now I can put a face to your name :o)

Lots of love, Tracie xxxx

I am glad you are feeling better and I expect you are missing that Florida sun already. Looking forward to seeing you next week.
Best Wishes, Lesley S, West Sussex

Maggie said...

A stunning card, absolutely my favourite of the ones you made yesterday. The dies are lovely, a must have addition to my collection. I was so relieved to get the ribbon too as it went to quickly. What a success story. xx

Cinders said...

Hi Sue,
Great card, I have to start saving now as these dies are a must have!
All the best Caz x

Ladock girl said...

I love these new dies Sue, they are so pretty. This card is amazing. Love Linda xxx

Linda (Lindyloo) said...

Hi Sue,
When I saw this card on tv the first thing I said was 'that's my favourite'. I know that repeating it seems cliche as you have said the same, but it's truthful. The reason I love it so much is that the border stands out so much more as lace on this design, more than on any other of the samples. In a funny way, it is a friendly layout. It's like a wall in a ahome, with a pot of flowers sat on a shelf, trailing down the wall. See, told you I was a bit strange.... LOL!!
I cannot wait to receive them and have a play. Had the despatched notice so hopefully they will be here soon. By the way, thanks for the tip, I managed to get the sold out items (plus lots of others - to my purses dismay!!)from Sam Pooles website. I use her online shop alot and always refer to it on my blog too.
Well I hope you have had or will have fun with Leah this weekend.
Hugs Linda xx

Ria said...

Hi Sue
I love everything about this card, the colours the card used and as fo the flowers. They look so different done from dictionary pages, I know what I am going to be doing tomorrow.
This card is singing loud and clear to me.
