What You Do

 Morning all!  I had been holding off on posting this card because I was getting a bit of comments requesting brighter cards, but everyone that saw it Ally Pally seemed to really like it.  It is one of my favourites too.  I picked out a decorative paper for the background (which I think was Graphic 45, but I'm not positive).  I added a matching paper strip with one of my Vintage Lace borders added in black.  I did a bit of machine zigzag stitching around the edge as an accent.  Next, I cut a length silky crush ribbon in champagne colour down the centre to make it thinner.  I added a bit across the bottom of my card, then used the rest to tie a messy bow (by messy, I mean I just let the loops go where they may, it isn't symmetrical).  I added a bit of gold tulle behind it and a fancy black button from my craft stash.  I cut the largest Decorative Labels One in black for the back layer of my focal element. a Decorative Labels 27 in black on top of that sentiment and cut it out with one of the smaller Decorative Labels 27 and very lightly inked it with black soot for a soft smokey look.  For the flowers, I used the new Krinkly Kraft paper (it is officially called twist wrap kraft paper if you are looking for it to purchase) cut small circles out of it by hand so they were a bit irregular.  I used my fingernail to stretch the paper a bit to form them into a cup shape a bit and then inked them with Black soot.  I layered up two to three different sizes and put a black brad through the centres to hold them together.  I just love the way this paper looks for flower making.  These remind me of a sort kraft looking poppy! Not to mention, these flowers only use very small pieces of it so they are a great way to use up your scrap pieces (which is just what I did!)  I cut a few leafy bits from Foliage Two set as accents.  I added a black rhinestone swirl in the upper corner and Cosmic Shimmer black PVA dots around the edges to finish it off.

Hi Sue...this card is just gorgeous...the colors are fab...the flowers are lush too.

The C&C POTD just is not the same without you...plus the dies are very small...I prefer the bigger style.

Take Care. Deborah.H. :)

Deborah said...

Maybe Spellbinders should have their own channel...there's a thought...spellbinding ALL DAY!!!LOL

Have a great day Sue.

Pam said...

This card is stunning Sue and the flowers are gorgeous. I think any of your cards can be made in brighter colours if that is what you want - I tend to like the colours you have chosen.

scottish crafter said...

Hi Sue, this card is simply gorgeous, borders, bows flowers etc all come together to make it stand out. You tend to use four colours a lot and it has become your signature style. Love it.

Carole Z said...

Hi Sue, this is a gorgeous, rich beautiful card and they are 'my' colours, I love them. I still can imagine what has possessed C&C do do Spellbinders without CE and Yourself! Looking forward to Sunday! Carole Z X

Morning Sue,

I loved this card when I saw it at Ally Pally too. In fact I loved all the cards I saw!! I was only tempted to buy the gilded gates last night, the cards did not inspire me like yours do I am afraid. Looking forward to Sunday's show. love Jean x

baconbits said...

Morning Sue,
I really like this card - truly inspirational.
Did not enjoy last night without you - what are they playing at - your touch and inspiration was definately missing. Waiting for Sunday.

Morning Sue lovely card very vintage looking. Love the poppies need to get that paper xx hazel

Anonymous said...

GM Sue - this card has all the components of your style - lovely! Re the POD I didn't tune in live but I am sort of watching the repeat - not the same without you I am afraid! and also not sure about the dies themselves - seem v. sililar to other ranges and they aren't in sets either.

Re Deborah's comment re a Spellbinders Channel - I would never get anything done!!!!

Jackie D said...

Hi Sue,
A lovely card and thank you for the tip about making the flowers, I shall experiment. Very disappointing show I thought last night, the presenters seemed to act like giggly schoolgirls and didn't really show us the dies properly so roll on Sunday and a proper show!
love from Jackie D

Jan.moogie said...

Stunning card Sue, those flowers could be made in red and then would be poppies. Love it x

Nanna Tina said...

Hi Sue
Lovely card and any colours would suit this design.
Like others the POD was not the same dies are ok but seen others very like them, as for a spellbinders channel, now there's an idea, looking forward to Sunday.
Happy crafting
Love Tina x

AdrienneQ said...

Love the card.
I did buy the dies last night as I love my spellbinders.
Can't wait to see what you do with the dies if you get them at a latter date. Did miss you and am just fast forwarding through my recording rather that stopping to look at all the cards and the demos as I do with your (and the girls) shows

Jenny L said...

Hi Sue,
what a fantastic, fabulous creation.
The Spellbinders show last night wasn't a patch on your shows. Come back Sue that's what I say to C and C.
The only thing that was good was the new lovely dies. Wish I had the pennies to buy.
Have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Victoria said...

I think it's stunning. So much detail and you always give so many different ideas for using the dies.

I also have to say that the POTD could have done with your input Sue!

Heather said...

Hi Sue
Much as I am not a lover of Black this card is very nice I like the sentiment and the lighter bow just makes it!

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, This card is STUNNING, I loved it at Ally Pally, but then I love all your creations, these are definitely my colours, I absolutely adore this card. Loving the tulle behind the messy bow too.
Regarding C&C and POTD, when I think of the gorgeous creations that you would have come up with with those dies, there is no comparison, what are C&C thinking at all.
Regarding Deborah's idea of a Spellbinders Channel, bring it on if you are the demonstrator, Sue.
Looking forward to 30th to watch you.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

nannapat said...

Love the design Sue. Colours can always be changed, and those flowers would look great in any colour. Pat x

Marianne's Craftroom said...

Fab card, love those flowers.

Rose in Chester said...

Oh Sue, just ignore people!! What do they mean, "brighter cards" - since 7th Sept. all the posts have been light bar 2. Or am I looking at something else?
Anyway, this latest creation is stunning, as usual and I'm looking forward to Sunday when we'll have the pleasure of your company again. Will HAVE TO SIT ON MY HANDS though...............
Mind you, there's always the Christmas wish list........

marg said...

Good Morning Sue!
I love these colours almost a Victorian effect with the large messy bow, Its amazing that until you read your blog, you don't see the amount of work you put in on each card. Looking forward to Sunday!
LoveMarg

kimberley said...

I think this is another stunner Sue.I think yo do a very fair mixture of dark and light cards.You know the old saying @you can't please all off the people all of the time and it wouldn't do if we were all the same.Just you keep doing what you do Sue-I am inspired by all of your cards even if i would choose to change some aspects of them,take care,x.

Heather T said...

Good morning Sue
Today's card shows why your the queen of Spellbinders you come up with such brilliant ideas. The POD. was not the same without you and I am afraid that the samples did not inspire me, I agree with Jackie D about the presenters. I think I need a doctor because I DIDN'T buy anything LOL. Looking forward to your shows on Sunday so that I can be inspired by the best. I did try to see what products you had on but there are no products listed on the website, I'll just have to be patient. Did anyone notice that the 'Spellbinder' intro music has been changed?
Hugs x

Jackie Calvert said...

This is lovely. The colours are great. I prefer you doing the demo's on C&C, you make the spellbeinders special.

debs said...

Morning Sue another lovely card love the colours. I love the lay out of the card been watching the potd but its not the same without you. Are you on on the 30th. Take care Sue

Good Morning, Sue,

Lovely card as always.

In particular the sentiment used on this card is well chosen for to-day, your sense of humour and professionalism to the fore!
Looking forward to Sunday.

happy2craft said...

Good Morning Sue,
A super 'Sue' masterpiece, this is really beautiful, so much detail, the kraft flowers are lovely.
I agree with the others, the POTD show was flat without you, but the dies are lovely, I would have loved to see what you could create with them, hope you get to do them justice. Was there no explaination why you were not hosting the 'world' launch of the D-Lites???
Looking forward to Sunday's shows.
Have a great day everyone.

I like it Sue,the colours go with the design of this card,I am not a bright colours person so this really works for me.

alimecca said...

Hi Sue
Although I'm not usually a lover of "dark" colours I think this card is stunning. Looks incredibly expensive and lush. The flowers are gorgeous. The shows last night were not the same without you and although I liked some of the dies I was a little disappointed with the size of them and agree with other comments that they are quite similar to other dies on the market. Looking forward to Sunday and the big embossing folders.

Sandra F said...

It's stunning Sue. I love everything about it.

Morning Sue, there is nothing wrong with the colours of this card its lovely. Didnt buy anything yesterday as like others have said it was not the same without you and your inspiration....c&c must be mad not to have you there! Hugs xx

CraftygasheadZo said...

Morning sue - this is gorgeous, as always your attention to detail amazes me. Why do I not think of these things?! Sorry for being a tad quiet, not been so good for a number of weeks, but at least I'm putting my new wheelchair to the test! Ha ha. Take care Zo xx

guffie said...

Good morning Sue and all the other bloggers, what a beautiful card i just love the colours i hate to say it but i tend to always lean towards these colours myself when i make cards, i thinkits because they just work and always look good together. loving all the little extra details you put in as well xx gail from eastbourne

HiggiSue said...

What a gorgeous card Sue
just love everything about it. I agree that spellbinders POTD wasn't my cup of tea and iwithout you and I wasn't one bit inspired.seems a shame decision by C&C could not be influenced by us crafters .
Perhaps we need a petition lol.

Anonymous said...

Dear Sue, love this card, I only watched the opening of the show and like most of your Fans are saying on here...What's going on?? Write in to C&C and Ideal World in NOT Ideal when you are not there.Family, friendship and fun? I don't think so....not without you. Anyhoo, I emailed both of them last night to say as much. Why not all of us do the same? Boycott and buy from somewhere else.....there are cheaper firms out there even though it seems we have to wait until they've had the biggest bite of the cherry. Can you see the steam coming off this email? Looking forward to recording your show Sue Mabex

Hi Sue

Beautiful elegant vintage card I just love it.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
First I agree whoeheartedly with all on here who are not happy with C&C - I don't know what's happening these days there they have certainly lost it - Spellbinders = Sue Wilson - don't they know that - I now buy my dies elsewhere -
OK today's card is not really me but I too love the krinkle paper for flowers - they look great when made up.

Joesgrandma said...

Profound sentiment Sue and a very vintage and attractive card. Thanks.

Love the card, especially the way you have made the poppies. What a creative mind you have. Roll on Sunday so we can get more inspiration from you. xx

nancyd said...

Morning Sue, Another great card I
like these colours and as always
your inspiration is just tops.
Agree with everyone else POTD just
wasn't the same without
Creative
Expressions as you and Julia give
really great tips.I don't know if its just
me but I find Phil very condecending I just can' watch him.
Nancyd xx




Maggie said...

Good morning Sue. This is a must have card for my vintage loving friends. The flowers are so interesting - keep those ideas coming please. xx

Erica said...

Morning Sue,

Lovely catd, beautiful colours. Just the sort of vintage feel that appeals to me.

Watched C&C yesterday. Not inspired; it need the Sue Wilson touch. Looking forward to Sunday though.

Erica x

Fieldsend said...

Love the card and colours Sue. If people don't like the colours that you do they can always change them to their own choice. Have bought the C&C POTD but that was it because as so many have said it is not the same without you. You are Spellbinder. Date's in dairy for Sunday and cannot wait. Agree that there should be a Spellbinder all day show's but only if it was you. Missed you as your style of card will be so much more sort after. Take care, June

hotpotato said...

I saw this card at Ally Pally and it really is gorgeous, nearly slipped in to my bag LOL...............I bought a pack of the krinkle paper to try out.

beachie said...

Hi Sue, its a stunning card, I love it, I am a big flower fan and these are gorgeous. You put so much into your cards, they are works of art
audrey x

Sandybee said...

I love the colours and the layout of this card Sue and any of your cards can always be adapted to other peoples choice of colour

A Spellbinders launch without you just isn't the same (No offense to Phil) but I only watched half of the programme

Another beautiful card; the colours are fabulous and I agree that the flowers are like craft poppies. Very pretty. Maddy x

Lacelady said...

Ooh, much busier than yesterday's card, but very pretty too.

I missed you with the Spellbinders, Phil demo-ed the same die last night as live this morning!

I liked the gate and the fence, but the fence looked too small to go with the gate, and no measurements on C&C for a guide.

nattyboots said...

Hi Sue, i like Deborah"s idea Spellbinding all day ,now thats just up my street.

Getting back to your card its just beautiful a real stunner .

Have a nice day.

Charmayne Ferrier Brown said...

I have had a bit of a tough day so far, so I promised myself 10 minutes to sit and look at your blog post for today with a nice cuppa. I haven't got as far as the cuppa, but the blog post has brightened my day already! I think the flowers in the kraft paper remind me of pencil sharpenings, which are very pretty, but too fragile to do anything with.

Cornish Emma said...

Hi Sue, i love these colours so this card is a winner for me. I have just got the crinkly paper so its flower making for me.

lesley said...

Hi sue this is my kind of card it stunning!! The potd shows were boring dean was like a giggly school boy he was so annoying!!! The dies looked lovely but its obvious they didn't plan it very well cos there wasn't many samples. And let's face it phil martin is not you and never will be!!! Although I have to say I quite like him and it was dean who spoiled the shows!!! If you had of done the samples it would've of sold out by midnight as it was world exclusive and I can only presume that's why c+c didn't have you!! Love lesley xx

Hello Sue, This card is stunning, the flowers are gorgeous, have the paper and will be giving them a try. Love the rich sumptious colors.
Agree with other comments re POTD, only watched 5 minutes, not the same without you. Looking forward to Sundays shows, when normal service is resumed.
Have a great day everyone.

I prefer dark cards, but know most people don't, (at craft classes I was usually the only one who would accept dark coloured card)then again, I love 'white on white' too. Variety is the spice of life!
Thank you, Sue, for everything, including fabulous variety!

bluebell said...

hi sue yes the spellbinders was done by another retailer,and for a pick of the day was not impressed at all. the program has to be moer than about selling,other things have to be added to the show to show of the benifit of the product. creative exsprresions do that with you and your demonstraters. i will wait till sunday. my mony stayed in the bank.love your caard today. hope you might considre the acetate card. love bluebell-flowerwood.

Stella Wright said...

Nice card sue but not for me it looks vintage i am a pastel fan except for men cards.|missed you on potw but i did buy a ccouple of the dies. had to save some money for you on Sunday.

Anonymous said...

Hello Sue,
I really loved this card when I saw it at Ally Pally, you were showing how you made these flowers and everyone agreed they are brilliant, what a clever use of the leftovers. As ever Sue another stunning card.
Love BrenLel

Sue B said...

I remember seeing this at AP at the weekend & like all of them, they look even more stunning up close & personal (if you get my drift). Still looking forward to your shows on Sunday, must say I'm not very impressed with the POTD or the cards that are being made using them.(Think your job's safe Sue)

Laura O said...

another fab card Sue,love it.Laura O

Lynne M said...

Hi Sue, this card is fantastic, I love the colours used. The POTD is flat and uninspiring without you. The card samples do nothing to spark my interest. It is just not the same without you demoing. Lol Lynne M x x x

Lizzie said...

Hi Sue
Beautiful card love the sentiment.
The dies on cc last night i liked i don't think they would/were your cup of tea to demo but it would be lovely to see what you would have done with them also they were small and similar to whats on the market with diff names.
Roll on Sunday LOL!
Thank you
Lizzie (serial copycat)xox

Vie Carter said...

Another super creation from the Wilson stable

Very disappointed with last night POD spellbinders show on C & C

Thought Dean gave it a very hard sell and the demonstrator was not a patch on you and your cards, they tried to say they had not had time to make cards,however if you had only been given an hour you would have made some fabulous creations.

They just went over and over how to use the grand calibar to cut and emboss - the card demo's were nothing but boring and uncreative

Hurry back onto our screens and if C & C are logging into your blog - Sue is the spellbinding Queen

Sue's card make us crafters think outside the box

Us crafters know how to use the machine we also know how to make simple cards, what we want is inspiration to improve our skill and only Sue and her great little team can provide that

Rant now over

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Today's card is lovely. I love your vintage style look. Great layout and colours. I have watched the potd on cc and I have to admit it is not particularly inspiring. I have not bought anything. I do like Phill but what on earth is he doing on a spellbinders show? With out you and Julia, create and craft have nothing. They have made a very big mistake. The shows are very disappointing. I don't claim know all there is to know about spellbinders but I think even I and probably the majority of people that follow your blog could make better more inspiring cards than those that are on there at present. I am patiently waiting to see you on cc on sunday!! Love Tres x x x

CraftyJo said...

Thanks for the close-up of those flowers, really does show their beauty. Lovely, classy card.

Ita said...

Morning Sue this card is another WOW card,also all the fantastic cards that you made for the shows the Julia had to do instead of you.It is a disgrace the way C.C. and spellbinders have droped you and Creative Expressions from the the P.O.T.D.show,It did not go very well anyway,it was boring and there was no sell out,the dies look lovely,the demos were like msaking a card from a kit,i wonder did they get the message,I suggest the all us crafters that have spellbinders because of you,should e,mail Spellbinders and C+C,but
which i am going to do so anyone reading this please do the same.I think the sales from last night were very low.I hope that you will be on on sunday.
Hugs

SusanP, Kent said...

Hi Sue,
Everything about this is just
FAB-U-LOUS. I'm fascinated with the kraft 'poppies' which are so sweet and didn't even come from a die. If there ever was such a thing as a masculine flower this would be it and even I could make them, LOL! I really want to get some of the twist wrap kraft paper.
Sue

"Talk to the Tail" said...

Lovely card again Sue. I'm also loving the flowers made out of the Krinkly Kraft paper and the way you've edged them with the ink xXx

Claveh said...

This is lovely Sue, I love the colours you have used, great card. xxx

Yvonne (Seom) said...

Well firstly I want to say what a stunning card this is. I love everything about it. It's has the WOW! factor.
Secondly I'm in California right now and got all set up on my iPad to watch the C&C POTD. well like everyone else I was so underwhelmed by Phil (nice sweet guy) he did nothing to enhance those dies I bought a cpl of them from the site before the launch show but C&C what ever possessed you to do this without the spelly queen they must have had some kind of moment, and I agree dean did come across as annoying and I usually like him as a presenter. Roll on Sunday when you are back. I also have email the IdealWord to complain. Yvonne x

hazel said...

Good morning Sue
What a beautiful card this is.Really love the sentiment the wording is very true.Love the colour combination and the dies a truly beautiful card.The POWD is not the same without you Sue.Take care Hazelx

Great flowers for masculine cards Sue. So looking forward to seeing you on Sunday (well I hope you will be on our screens!) it just isn't the same when you don't do the demos of new dies. We don't see enough of you - we want more Sue on our tvs!!!!! Yvonne xx

Jill Liddle said...

Hi Sue, as far as I am concerned, every card you do is lovely. I like to see cards done in "out of the ordinary" colours and as a previous comment says, you can always do any of your designs in whatever colour suits you. We all have different tastes and it would be practically impossible to please everyone all of the time. And anyway, seeing different colourways certainly "fires up" my imagination. Keep it up.

lydia jordan said...

Hi Sue,
Fantastic card love love mono tones.
Like almost everybody else I only watched the POTD show for a little while it was not the same as when you and Julia do the shows. Don't know what C&C were thinking.
Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday.

mabex said...

I've already put a comment on today but now there are 120 and most of you seem to agree SUE is number 1 Spellbinder Talent. No offence to Phill he seems a nice guy. Last night I emailed C&C Ideal World and Spellbinders please can you all do the same? Sue is a treasure and we need to see her more not less. Power to the Sue Wilson Fans. JUST DO IT!!! Please Mabex

lilygee said...

Those flowers are so gorgeous - I really must get some of this paper - always always something I want! If any of you other bloggers read this comment I would ask you to send an email to studio@idealworld.tv to complain about Sue not doing the demoes for the POD World Launch. Please do this because it really is not right and I know that all of you want her to be doing the demoes so please lets support her by all emailing in about it.
love lilygee xxx

lilygee said...

Hi mabex - just spotted your comment and so glad you did that and I will email Spellbinders too.

Sue Yorkshire said...

Just had a look at my recorded shows, well the first two anyway, and will be deleting the rest without looking at them.
The demo cards were like something we might have made if we had never seen the 'Sue' shows, but now that we have I think all your bloggers could have made better samples.
Poor show C&C

Hi Sue, your card is fabulous. I note you used black but it comes through to me like a french navy blue which is great.
Glad to see your bows again.

Lovely card Sue. I do like to see some of your more obscure coloured cards as it gives me inspiration to be a bit more daring as they are not colours I would normally use myself.

Like this card Sue. Linda xxx

Lovely classy, elegant card Sue x The flowers do look poppy like, liking them with that tint of inky soot. You get an "Oooooo!" or a "Wow!" from me whatever colours you decide to use. As far as I'm concerned they are "Sue Wilson" cards..... & that makes them unique in my eyes! Just like you are the unique Sue Wilson Spellbinder! Look forward to seeing you on Sunday Sue with all your wonderful demo's, xx Love Karen xx

Hi Sue....Another stunning card...I love the colours and the flowers are gorgeous..will have to get some of this paper.....I too was surprised that you were not doing the POD...I did watch some of the launch but as others have said not the same without you...(I do like Phill) I think C & C and spellbinders mad a mistake not having you for the launch of the new dies...also there were no measurements of the dies. There were some lovely one's but did save my money....cant wait for Sunday even tho I am working..hope there will be some left when i see the recording....

Chrissie...x x x

Beautiful card Sue as always. I really love your creative style.
I have bought the spellbinder dies from C&C as I thought they had great potential. I think If you had done the show we would have seen more spectacular cards.
I'm not knocking Phill as he did have a different take on making cards and to be honest dont think it's nice of people to knock him. We all have our different styles.
Look forward to seeing you on C&C on Sunday. very exciting cant wait.

Love the card Sue, great colour combination. Poppies are so effective, must try these. Looking forward to your shows on Sunday, saving all my pennies 'till then. Anne x

Barbara said...

Beautiful card Sue! The flowers are so pretty.
Watched the POD and was so dissapointed, the samples were basic and didnt give us any inspiration. It just didnt feel like a spellbinder show. Far too much giggling and carry on and Dean is one of my favourites too. Have emailed Ideal World.

I love this card too Sue! So elegant & classy! Gorgeous colour scheme. I do like bright colours, but I like these too & you give us such a mix. I did actually buy POTD from ideal world last night & added a grand calibur for my friend so she could pay over 4x months (I have one of the create & craft versions), but was working so ordered blind via my phone. I only watched the recorded show today (my 2yr old wasn't impressed!). I did miss your beautiful creations you always create & your demos. I'm sure your cards would of been amazing! Given Phils lack of time to prepare I think he did well & do usually like his demos. He's just not you though as you truly are the queen of spellbinders for me. I always record any show you do so I can stop & pause as much as I like. Thank you for being you :-) Claire xxx

This card is lovely Sue, we just love everything about it. The colours, the style, the flowers - all gorgeous.

We watched the Spellbinders shows last night and today, it's not the same without you!

Hi Sue,
I fell in love with this card at Ally Pally, it's gorgeous.
Looking forward to Sunday's shows,
Sue xx

Su said...

You don't have to be bright to be noticeable... cards I mean! I love the elegance of this colourway - another stunning creation Sue!

Unknown said...

Hi Sue, love the card, especially the roses. Skimmed through the POTD shows on C&C today, they were very uninspiring without you. I'm sure it would have sold out if you'd been there with your beautiful samples and great demos. Looking forward to your shows on Sunday.

Crafty Mum said...

Hi Sue. really loved the Poppies and will be having a go at making them..and as I have such a large stash of 12x12 patterned papers I can try and make the cards in more than one colour way.
(but will really have to practise on the bows 'lol')
