A Day To Celebrate

Hi guys!  A really simple card today based on repeating a pattern as a background.  The new dies are perfect for this too as they are really interesting shapes.  I cut four of the pieces from the Asian set in black card and glued them in to a lavender square shape, two up, two down.  Then I layered four of the smaller pieces from that set on top but in white for a nice contrast.  I did a bit more matting with white and black for that piece then added my sentiment.  I stamped it in black, embossed it in clear on white card.  Then I used the smaller die in the decorative labels one set and cut a frame using scalloped labels one on the inside.  I added some foam pieces for dimension then mounted it over my sentiment and then in the centre of my background.  That entire piece I put on top of a larger background that I had embossed with the new Asian embossibility folder.  I had to line it up and repeat it to make it large enough, but it is a very easy repeat on it.  I rounded the corners and matted it on white then black.  I added a messy bow out of the mauve seam binding and a fancy button in the centre of the bow to complete the card.  Again, one of those cards that will work in any colour combo and with just about any sentiment you need.  I really like the black, white and lavender myself though!  All for now, Sue x

cebelica said...

What I really like about your cards is that they are so different from the others in Blogland. You don't use those cute images, but you just use dies in a very creative way. Another fab card! Hugs! xx

melanie said...

Stuning card watched the shows last night please can you do a tutorial on the stand thanks .I was hoping for different dies in the POTD as I had the orignal POTW as I own 7 dies of the potd so couldn`t get it Maybe the buyer should have put the other dies as a bundle like you have sets from prevs ones ,Rant over as the dies are expensive singley >melanie

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, Another truly gorgeous card, and from your instructions, it seems quite an easy card to follow, I will definitely be trying this one. I also love the colour combination, my favourites. I am watching you on tv at the moment, a repeat of the 11pm show last night. I ordered the botanical swirls die and a few m-bossibilities last night, and this morning I have ordered the 2 new labels dies, I wanted the lattice die aswell, but it must have sold out last night. I am loving the shows, Sue, your cards are gorgeous. You will be exhausted after your marathon shows today. Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Sue,
I like these Patchwork type of cards and particularly like the colours here. Enjoyed your banter with martyn last night and saw quite a few cards which I shall look out for on your blog. As for the easel...well, only you could have seen that from the die!! Out most of the day but the recorder is set. Have a super day and I hope it is not too tiring - who knows you may go home early!!
love from Jackie D

alimecca said...

Hi Sue
Think the lavender & black are lovely together.I might have to consider the Asian dies.Great shows last night & thought the idea for the easel was brilliant - can you repeat it please. Managed to get the lattice die and the botanical swirl one before it sold out and unfortunately missed the les papillons - will have to try & get them somewhere else. Good luck for today.

Anonymous said...

GM Sue - well.... it certainly is a day to celebrate! Saw your 9pm show live last night and watched the repeat of the 11pm show this morning. Will be watching all day today and crafting along - might even send you an email later! In love with the botanical swirls die - can't wait to get using it!
Have a great day

Good morning Sue
It was brilliant seeing you yesterday it's been far too long. I love today's card the Asian dies are on my next 'I need' list.

Beautiful card, really liked the new dies and I am loving the shows.

Jassy said...

Hi Sue, am so loving your demos again today, such inspiration, thank you :) I worked out the little stand idea :) I found it really does need two strips across between the two dies and I'm sure it will work with many different nesties. Looking forward to receiving my grande dies ordered last night

Hello Sue, wonderful shows last night and lots more to see today. Todays card is gorgeous as always

Jacqui aka Morgana said...

Love the card as always Sue, ordered the pick of the day as soon as it came to air as I missed the dies last time and cant wait for them to arrive. Crossing my fingers that I get one of the christmas ones I really want.

Lacelady said...

Love the card Sue, saw last night's show, and I will be watching all tonday's too (and I'm recording them so as not to miss anything!)

I won't order from C&C because of their excessive shipping charges to Ireland, but I've ordered 6 of the sets on ebay instead. Spellbinders still get the sales, but C&C miss out!

(PS, my dies are only £15.95 too, so I save that way as well)

hollyberry said...

Hi Sue what a lovely card.I love the colours and as ever from you such a clever use of the dies.Lovely to see you on the TV-today is Sue watching day.Hope it goes well for you.

Fantastic card Sue, using a different colour it would be great for men too. Thoroughly enjoyed your demos last night and I'll be watching all of today's shows - thank you for all the inspiration. Pat x

Hi Sue, Love the colours but a bit too busy for my simple taste! Saw C&C yesterday, recording today. As last comment, will not pay C&C postage so will buy on Ebay or from my local craft shop. Hugs, Carol S.xx

Hi Sue, I think the Asian die looks really nice. Watched the show last night, wish they had time for more demo's.

JaneCrafty said...

Hi Sue...What a lovely card this is.... But all of them are!
I have just been watching you and so offer so many tips and techniques with the dies that my head is now exploding with ideas. I have already got a lot of the dies but the ones I have just seen are gorgeous so had to have them! I wish they could be here now so I could follow your lead! Keep up the fantastic work and look forward to seeing what else you inspire us with later!

Any day with a Sue Wilson show is a day to celebrate.

Hi Sue

Thanks so much for all your hard work in bringing your ideas to us. I ordered the POTD last night at 9.02pm - such a large variety and the Flexi Pay makes it more affordable. The M-Bossabilities folder used in this card looks very similar to one I already have, so hope to make a card like this when my dies arrive.

Hugs

beautiful inspiring card. Sue I must say watching your shows in the past on Create and Craft have made me buy a grand claibur and spellbinder dies and start crafting again after an absence of 5 years when I lost inspiration. You have now inspired me so much to start creating again. Love your shows and now I have your blog to follow. Thank you so much for your inspiration. x

Marianna Hammer said...

This card is absolutely beautiful. Now we have watched so much Spellbinders on C & C, that the mind is full of ideas. I won't wait till I get my new ones. The ideas can well be used with the ones we already have :))
How funny to have my e-mail read out on C & C. It really made me laugh :D

sheila said...

Sorry Sue, every time I put C&C on or Ideal w. something happened and I didn't catch much of it at all (really upset). Todays card is such a pretty card with such a different colour way

jennywren1947 said...

Hi Sue, like this card there,s just something about it that hits the mark.Enjoyed the last bit of ur show 2day, off work at moment after a foot op, and was trying 2 stand on 1 leg like a stork 2 do ironing, gave up in the end, put tv on and only caught the last 20 mins was really mad 2 have missed all of it

Sue Parish said...

Hi Sue,
Super card - and my favourite lavender too!
Today was my lucky day after all. When I got back from my trip to Donington there was a letter from the electricity people to say there would be an interruption in the supply to carry out essential repair work TODAY! So this morning I watched your shows expecting them to disappear at any moment! - especially as I saw their vehicles go past my cottage on their way up the lane. But some time later there was a tap on the door and a very nice man there explained that they wouldn't be able to carry out the work today, they would write again etc etc - and they were very sorry for the inconvenience caused. But the Cheshire Cat grin on my face was getting wider and wider - I just couldn't stop it!! So before he could decide I was a madwoman and that he ought to beat a hasty retreat, I managed to point at you on the TV and told him there something I really didn't want to miss today and I really didn't mind the repairs not being done!
The shows were great, thank you - and I was able to watch and record them all because it really was my lucky day! (But I do hope they'll come back before I'm stuck in a snowdrift with no electricity!)
Sue xx

magpie said...

Lovely card Sue & a great colour combination. Lavender, black & white do mix well. It's been lovely seeing you again on C&C. Your cards have taken my breath away, they're just gorgeous! Beautiful dies & I love the embossing folders. I have the Regal & the Imperial folders & they make such a gorgeous difference to your card. So classy. Everything else added is icing on the cake! Love how you did the "stand" at the back of the card. Could you put step by step instructions on your blog of how you did it? It'll help the senility problems that happen along the way.....! take care Sue, thanks for all your inspiration, not just for me but for so many of us out there. xx Love Karen xx

Hi Sue,
late leaving my comment as I have been watching all your programmes that I recorded. All those lovely dies and ribbons.

Oh why is there always so much month left at the end of your money? Another English saying.

This card is lovely. I really must get on and make some cards with my new dies.
2am now so time for bed.

I almost never leave remarks, but after looking at through
a ton of remarks here "A Day To Celebrate".
I do have some questions for you if it's okay. Could it be only me or does it seem like some of the responses appear as if they are left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at other online social sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you list of every one of your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
