Yesterdays Flower

 Good morning blog friends!  First of all I would just like to say a big thank you for all your support, kind words and wonderful emails after my POTD shows, I really truly appreciate all of them!  I see that we have reached (and exceeded) the blog candy goal so I will be back later today with a second post listing the winners, so be sure to check back.  For today's card, I thought it would make sense to show the card that yesterdays flower was supposed to have been used for.  You can see how the ultra thick, even though it is "clear" does add a yellowish tint to the flowers.  Sometimes it doesn't look out of place, but with the blue decorative paper I used, it just looked too green for me.  Oh well, I ended up with two sample cards and that is never a bad thing as far as I'm concerned!  Today's card was one of my favourites from the show.  I love blue and brown together, so I was quite happy with this one.  We were supposed to have the silky crush ribbon on the show, but there just wasn't enough of the stock.  I had already made the card so it just didn't get into the "demo" pile.  It is pretty self explanatory though, I think, nothing too tricky here.  I used the Fancy frame Tag Two die templates to create a repetitious look for my sentiment.  I cut three of them with the centre die in place creating little frames for my wording.  I stamped them on decorative backing paper that corresponded to my backing paper.  I think it created a bit of interest without being too overwhelming since the pattern was so fine.  I used a bit of mounting foam on the frames and recessed the wording.  I stacked them horizontally and added some of the brown silky crush ribbon up and down the side.  I tied a double bow and added a matching flower made using Sam Poole's button floral stamps (there is a tutorial I did for these on the Creative Expressions website under the workshop section).  There is a close up below of the flower too.
I added a couple of crystal stick pins and some pearlie bling on my ribbon strip and below my sentiments, pierced the edges and the card came together for me.  I hope you like it! Don't forget to see if your name gets drawn later today!  All for now, Sue x

Sue,
This is lovely the colors together are sweet. Happy Friday.

barbiepinkfairy said...

Love this card especially the colour combos! Really enjoyed the shows had to resist buying but loved your demos! I bet it takes you a couple of days to get over a marathon like that!

Karen R said...

I like the repeated greeting and can see lots of variations using various tag dies,like the holly for Christmas. Hope you have recovered from your marathon POTD stint XX

mags said...

Love this card today Sue. The colour combo is super and love the flower and the repeating sentiment panels. Just super.

Good Morning Sue,
I loved this card when it was shown on C&C the colours and the repeated sentiment are great I really like that idea.
I can see me using that sometime soon.
This colour combination is one I have really taken to of late.
Thank you for all your inspiration
Have a Great Day

Morning Sue what a lovely card through that when It was on Tv I just love the colours I never thought about doing a brown card I will now have ago at this one.

CraftyAnn said...

A stunning card. the colours together are lovely. I had the best day for a long while on Wednesday watching your fab demos and picking up so many ideas. It would be great if C&C would have regular workshops featuring yourself and spellbinders, it would be fantastic with no regular stock updates and no presenter waffling on. I think you deserve the same respect as Barbara Grays' in the classroom. I have emailed C&C in support of this idea.
Take care.

scottish crafter said...

Hi Sue, love the colour combo and of course the complete card. This seems simple to Create so I will have to give it a try today as my stock of cards is depleting. I support the call for you to be given a "classroom" show on C&C on a regular basis, you are a great teacher.

BridgetCG said...

Hi Sue, this card is really lovely. Love the tags. Well done on the shows.Bx

happy2craft said...

Good Morning Sue,
I too loved this card when you showed it, it is very striking with those colours, I thought it was this card that the other flower should have gone on, lol.
I hope you had a good day yesterday, would love the harlequin card to be posted next, lol. There were so many lovely cards.
Have a great day everyone

shirley said...

Morning sue another fantastic card i love the bow and flower on it.I would just like to say that my POTD arrived yesterday and it is fantastic i am new to spellbinder dies and the grand calibur but now you have got me hooked on it.
I love your blog your cards are outstanding and you are a very tallented lady thank you for sharing your wonderful work.
kind regards shirley xxx

Ladock girl said...

Morning Sue, love this card, it's such a nice colour combo. Loved all the shows yesterday and I have recorded them for future reference when my new dies arrive. It would be great if you could design a die that would build an extra room in my house, I'm running out of space with all these dies lol. Linda xxx

Izzwizz said...

Love the blue and brown together and turning the tag into frames is such a great idea. Thank you, maddy x

cebelica said...

Gorgeous card. That flower in the middle of the bow looks fantastic. Hugs! xx

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, This card is adorable. I love the blue and brown combo, they really complement each other. This card is a simple card but so very elegant, it is beautiful. Loving the bow and the bling, and the flower is 'to die for', it is so beautiful. I, too, think that it would be fantastic for you to do workshops on C&C without all the sales pitches, just like Barbara Gray does. I loved all the shows but I really loved the shows later in the day because you were allowed to do more demo's. Lots of love from Patricia xx

Anonymous said...

GM Sue - I agree with Craft Ann's comments - 'In the classroom with Sue Wilson' would be a massive hit I am sure - more emphasis on demos would be better and would sell even more goodies me thinks. Although it might be even tougher on you!!!!!! Afterall, anyone can buy the stuff but its what to do with it that really counts and leads to further purchases. there is too much emphasis on the products, especially when there are so many of them to go thro, which they have to do legally I think but it just takes too long and is too repetitive. We don't want much do we!!!

Anyway, love teh blue/brown combo - will be trying this one.

Morning Sue, yes these colours really do it for me too. I love this combinaton. Love the card too, I admired it when I saw it on the show. Thanks for the ideas.

Love the card ,any chance of you doing a tutorial of the roses you did with flower die I tried one yesterday but looked nothing like your`s you did on your show while it was still fresh in my mind i did do the stand stunning ,I think it would be great as post above mentioned class with Sue Wilson > Melanie

Shahab said...

Good Morning Sue,
what a gorgeous card this is so simpmle ,and stunning, it's amazing how the tags can be used, and I just love the flower too !
Sue don't know where I was going wrong last night but I played back your demo how to make a stand, and followed your instrucions over and over but when I put my plates through my calibur I end up with everything being cut, the strip dosn't stop the dies cutting through ,after 6 attempts I gave up but am not giving up as I think you have converted me to making card fronts from now on, as long as I get round to mastering making the stand. I have just had an email to say all the lovely new dies I purchased on Tuesday have been dispatched and should be with me on thursday I'm so excited, Sue once again thank you for sharing your knowledge and inspiration with us, and I just love this card.
I'm off to buckingham Palace on Sunday, Hope you have a wonderful weekend..Hugs Shahab x

kimberley said...

Very ,very pretty. Love the simplicity of this card-I think that is what makes it even more stunning.The colours are two that I love together and I must try to do the flower with the embossing powder.I received my card from your first POTD show that I was lucky enough to win and it is even more impressive in real life.I also agree with everyone else about 'in the classroom' with Sue Wilson.I am sure if c and c could calculate which shows are the most watched then you would win hands down They really need to give it serious consideration.Also any chance of another dvd from you -I have your first one and it is used so much it is almost worn out,take care,x

You've proved that brown and blue don't have to be the colour combination of a school uniform LOL!!!

Heather T said...

Good morning Sue
There has never been a card that you've made that I didn't love and today is no exception. I loved it whe it was shown on C&C and I am so glad you have shown it on your blog today so we can get a good look at it. I agree with everybody that you should have your own show and I
E mailed C & C some time ago asking them to give you your own show. I know they have to tell you what's on the shows but I would rather get more demos in than hear the same thing over and over all the time.

You´ve just made another stunner here again Sue, soo gorgeous work always. I´m totally in awe about all your wonderful work.
I agree with the many more here, that you should get your own show on C & C, that would be just awesome, and I promisse, I´ll be there as often as I possibly can, that´s for sure. I just soooooo LOVE your shows there. You´re an awesome demonstrator, and it´s sooo easy to follow your instructions always.

I just love blue/brown combinations - particularly for men's cards. We don't see enough of you on tv and it would be absolutely brilliant if you could have more regular shows on C&C showing us your many talents. Keeping fingers crossed - Yvonne xx

Rose in Chester said...

As nattyboots, have used brown and pink together, but not brown and blue. It looks good and I'll certainly use that colour combo at some point in time.
The design of the card is, as usual, lovely.
Have a good rest Sue, make this weekend a "pamper" one.

Hi Sue, Fabulous card. I can see why it was one of your favourites. I love the colour combo & use of patterned paper on the flower.
I too would love C&C to have an 'In the Classroom with Sue Wilson'. I have found that I have been watching C&C less & less since January as I am no longer picking up many new tips & ideas. This means more of my craft budget is being spent in local shops or online. However, I always tune in to see your shows as they are inspiring & full of new ideas mixed with things I had forgotten.
With love & light Theresa.H

Enjoyed all your shows and have recorded them all.
I am going to try and make the stand and hope it will work out will let you know.
What size are the cards you make as they appear bigger on the tv.
Have just been informed that the dies I ordered are on the way, can't wait to have a play.
Take care

Maid of Kent said...

Beautiful card, like the colour combination. I too would be delighted to have a classroom class with Sue Wilson. Those stock up dates and keep repeating what is on the show drive me NUTS!!! Your demos sell the the products, how many times have we looked at a die, and thought it not worth buying, then you demo with it and it is the best thing since sliced bread, and we are all trying to get our hands on it. Let's have a regular Sue fix. We are addicts. Hugs Ann

Absoutely gorgeous card love the combination.

Beautiful and so stylish! :)

Loved the shows - I treated myself even though I have heaps of dies already, but a girl cant have too many! lol

lesley said...

Hi sue I love this card but I love the idea of you doing a classroom even more!!! Lol it drives me mad watching you on c+c as you only get 1 demo done in a show and things sell out so quick that sometimes you don't even get to demo them!! We spend so much money on dies and we don't even get to see how to use them.I bought both background dies but they sold out so quick that you didn't get to show what can be done with them!!! Ok sorry rant over but c+c do drive me mad!!lol love lesley xx

nzillingworth said...

Hi Sue
Fabulous card, smashing new tags. Very useful i thought. Taken a long time for these to come out. Been chopping down the middle of dies to do the same job for years. Now will look perfect. Would never think to pur blue and brown together but it looks fab. another 10 out of 10

I had to get a new wifi router so I could keep watching your blog Sue - your flower looks exactly the same colour on my screen. I wrote an email to every programme you were on, on C&C, they read out three of them, but no luck with the 'spotty Potty'!

Hi Sue,
I prefer the brown/blue combination of this card to the brown and turquoise yesterday. Who knows why - maybe a ratio thing?
Anyway, this is a lovely card I like the repetition of the tags (bought this die set with 2 others from the show) and the pleasing arrangement of all the other elements.
Have a great weekend.
Sue

Hi Sue
The blue and brown are so pretty together and that spotty paper is soooo must have.
I have some of the crushed ribbon and I am looking forward to using it, the bows are amazing.

This is a very sweet card. Lovely colors and that sweet rose again. It's strange how your lovely bows have changed the way I look at cards :)

Beautiful card Sue & love the blue/brown together. Like how you've put the dies in a downward 1,2,3, order & the spotted paper along with the diagonal diamondy paper pattern match so well together. Lovely flower too Sue xx Love Karen xx ps, managed to get on the voting website, love & good luck to you, you deserve it! xx

Hi Sue,

Just catching up after visiting my mum for a few days. i loved this card when you showed it on TV lovely colour combination. may I also add my voice in agreement to all your other blog followers. I would love you to do a classroom show occasionally without interruptions though I appreciate it would be a lot of work for you and you already do so much for us with your daily blog.

love from Jackie D
