Soft and gentle and who wouldn't love to receive a gift like this.
Thank you for the tips on today's video - I love the idea of making 'twirlies' with the micro beads and will certainly be playing and adding these to me cards.

Unknown said...

Hi Sue, What a Truly Beautiful Stunning Card, I so love the Dusky Pink it is so feminine, I Love the Stamps and the Spellbinder Dies used and The "Awesome" Outstanding Flowers, your Cards always look so Rich and Opulent you'd never be able to purchase anything quite like this in the shops! I'm really lucky as I have the Dies and the Stamps so I may give this a try!! (It will probably take me a week to achieve Lol!)
Thanks for the great tip using The Fantastic Micro Beads, I really like the effect it adds to your Card.
I Love Tuesday's and Thursday's it's Sue's Video day's.
Take Care
Love and hugs from Sam x
Have a good day all!

Good morning Sue and Wilsonettes
Just when I thought I knew everything about micro beads you come up with such a brilliant idea. Although I never throw the waste from the cut adhesive sheets ( usually cut small butterflies or flowers) this is another use for the waste. I forget to use my masks for embossing I must get them out because it gives such a pretty look to the card. I love making the rolled flowers in fact I love making any flowers lol. Fortunately I never had a problem with the video. Thanks Sue it's pouring here so I'm not going out just crafting today and going to make some curly swirls with my micro beads
Hugs x

Unknown said...

Totally sensational card! You make it all look so simple, but glad I have the video to follow lol. Lover the flowers and fab idea to use wire and micro beads. I've seen you do this with glue before but the sticky back sheet means no waiting for it to dry- great when you are impatient like me!

Alice xx

Glenharon said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
What a beautiful card Sue and great idea with the wire and micro beads. Dare i mention another brand... flower soft would look good as well.
Your video kept having the stops with me as well but if you press a wee bit further on it comes back everyone. I love the varying textures in today's card as it gives individual points of interest.
Steph have found a use for that exercise band that the physio gave me, so thank you flower for the idea. In actual fact that's about the only thing that band is of any use for. Its the only way it stops me from being in pain. So girls if you've been to that certain ladies diet and fitness club, her exercise band has finally become useful.
Thank you for all your wishes, you are all simply wonderful and i am so lucky to be a part of such a great bunch if people.
Going into Stirling with half pint (Daughter) so its buggy time, whoopee.
See you all tomorrow hopefully,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

The card is absolutely stunning love the dusty pink you have used it so feminine, and yet another way to use our border dies – I'm realising what a good investment they were, thank you.
Take care, love Brenda xxx

Hi Sue, Morning Wilsonettes from a cold wet Lancashire. Oh - My - Word ! What a W.O.W (wonder of Wilson) we have today, and for once I have a few items, the rectangle die is 1 that I chose to get with my gift vouchers along with a set of border dies, I can improvise with the stamp, and should now invest in a mask (apart from the one I use to cover up when Im not feeling 'so good') I've ummmed and ahhhed over maks many times, but now its a deffinate ahhh : ) along with some floristry wire. I always keep the card when I've cut appatures, in fact I have a box that is full of appature frames (goodness knows why I thought I was being so clever using them as frames) should have guessed it was 'old info' : ) you really open up our minds Sue with all your beautiful work, but where do YOU get your inspiration from ? I think a lot of us would be closing the door to our work space until our brain kickstarted up again, so thank you so much.
This is such a pretty delicate card that with a change of colour and embelishments could be used for both male and female cards, talking of which I have an order of 10 I should be working on (but between us I have my mask on) such a lowsey day with the rechid crohns - maybe a kick in the rear will do the trick !!
Im still offering silicone to anyone who may need it to help with their troublsome hands, just ask and I'll get some to you my lovely friends.
I hope you are all keeping well and warm today. Im thinking of approaching the ribbon and red backed tape as I could do with a good giggle watching my stupid fingers tie themselves up in sticky tape ("cant go wrong") hey Sue - just watch me : ) and how come you wasn't flapping your hands like some beautiful swan trying to release the red backing from your person ? Its like Hansel and Gretal here when Ive used it, like glitter etc that red backing follows me everywhere !!!!!!! : 0
All for now my lovelies.

Hey Sue,

I love an ocassional pink card myself, sometimes I just love the total girly feel.

Beatifully done, I love those gorgeous border dies, just been a bit naughty and bought two sets of border dies and also the bitty blossoms!

Cannot wait till they thump on my floor and I'll run down, rip them open and spend three days in my crafty haven!

Hi Sue,
Hi Everyone,
What a lovely card! Thanks for the excellent tip to cut out
stamp centre. Also was great to have another demo of the seam binding flower - have made notes this time! Love the corner also! I suppose you could say I like the whole thing!! Video stopped once for me but I just blamed the weather - I blame it for everything!!!
Glad everyone seems to be a little better today!
Thanks for the offer Steph but I don't have a problem with my hands. I'm not thankful enough, sometimes we take things for granted. So pleased though that you have found something which really helps you!
Love to all,

Hello Sue, Feminine and gorgeous, love everything about it, the flowers are scrummy, had a little trouble with the video, will watch it later on my ipad. Have spent the morning with two girl friends who I have not seen since last November, one of whose husband has a terminal illness, we had tears, hugs and lots of love. we all enjoyed seeing each other, but no crafting today.
Keep smiling Steph and Norah, Steph will pass on the silicone but thanks for the offer.
