Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

 Hi my crafty friends!  What a whirlwind the trade show has been!  Three days of demoing my new die line, talking to stockists and getting feedback.  I am officially over the moon with how well they have been received!   Thank you so much for helping me get the word out about them.  Just to answer the emails and comments asking,  the dies are not being launched on C &C, just our Creative Expressions stockists!  You  have done such a great job of letting your local retailers know that you would like them to carry the line, thank you so much!     I will come down from cloud nine now so I can talk about today's card.  I embossed the background with the Interlocking Circles embossing folder for some background texture.  I matted it with periwinkle card.  Using the Raindrops on Roses die set from Heartfelt Creations, I cut four of them in coconut white card.  I glued them to the four edges on my background.  Next I cut a labels 18 in white and did a matching "Faux nestie" in blue by tracing around the outside of the die and hand cutting it to match.  I mounted this in the centre of the card on foam.  On a separate piece of paper, I stamped the floral bouquet from the Majestic Morning collection, coloured and cut it out.  I mounted it on Labels 18 in the middle of the card as my focal element.  I tied a messy bow out of sky blue seam binding and added a white crystal sparkler to the centre.  I stamped a sentiment and cut it out with a small tag die and tucked the end under the bow embellishment.  I finished with a double white pierced mat layer and added some flatback pearls as embellishments.  Finished dimensions are 8" x 8" in size.  Don't forget to leave a comment on today's post to be entered in the drawing for the card!  I will announce the winner's name on the Saturday post.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue, So glad your trade shows went really well, everyone will adore your new dies !!
I, for one, am upset that C&C won't be selling them, especially as I want 'lots' of them, and the flexipay there certainly helps me, but hey ho I will have to be patient haha !!
Your card today is stunning, I'm loving the four Raindrops on Roses die-cuts placed like a frame around the stunning focal image, and the white dazzler is gorgeous, I really need those.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Good news about your dies Sue and well deserved.

Hi sue,
Glad your dies went well at the trade show. One of my local craft shops tells me they have Julia going to them to demonstrate your dies so I have told everyone to get themselves there. They will not be disappointed. Enjoy your success with the dies, you deserve it. Today's card is lovely and has a bit of a Victorian feel about it. X

Rachel Taylor said...

So pleased everyone wants your dies ,you deserve it ! This card is so very pretty .love the vase of flowers .

Alison Couchman said...

Congrats on the response at Stitches Sue. I'm glad the retailers get the stock as some of them are generally more affordable than C & C. IconUK always has the best prices - don't know how they do it.

Gorgeous, gorgeous card. I'm a relative newbie to die cutting and your blog is a great source of ideas and inspiration. It's great to see all the different ways to use dies - today's card is perfect example so thank you.
Alison

Good morning Sue
Another stunning card it's so intricate and my kind of card. Congratulations on your success at the trade show we all knew it would. I'm surprised at C&C not selling your dies because they sell everyone else's, oh well it's their loss. The dies my son bought for me came yesterday and I haven't stopped playing with them. The tag from the Spanish border set is the prettiest tag I've ever seen and I'm going to have to sit on my hands so that I don't use it on every card lol. The dies will sell themselves once samples are seen of the cards made using your dies.

GM Sue - love this card and the rain drops on roses die is lovely.

Many thanks to those Wilsonnetes who responded to my call out yday re comments and advice on starting a papercraft club - appreciated. I now need to investigate suitable venues and insurance costs and then make a decisions as to whether it could be a 'goer' or not - I'll keep you posted with progress.

Re a question on one of yday's posts - I do believe it was Steph who coined the phrase the 'Wonder of Wilson' or WOW and that's really apt I think as Sue's dies are defintely WOWEE - I think we would all agree on that.

Glad the trade show was a success Sue.

Good morning Sue. I love the raindrops on roses dies. This card today is beautiful and the pink and blue look lovely together. I'm glad your range went down well at stitches. Xx

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
What a beautiful gift today - really sets me up to face the hassle today is going to be.
I love the colours clean and fresh - you cannot go wrong with any shade of blue and white for me.
The more I see the Raindrops on Roses the more I like it but for now my pennies have been spent on 'Sue Wilson' dies (now I wonder why!!!(lol).
Cannot get to crafting today as it's hospital visit but definitely tomorrow - it has to be!
See you tomorrow.

Good morning Sue today's card is just gorgeous. I'm so pleased that the trade show went well for you it is brilliant that so many people will be selling them. I was hoping to see you demoing the dies on C & C but that's not to be It will be a boost to the independent retailers to have products this desirable that they don't have. Have a great day everyone. Love Jackie

MRS DUCK said...

Good morning Sue and everyone
A beautiful and elegant card. Enjoyed playing with my Striplet die yesterday afternoon. If its C&C s choice not to sell your dies, then more fool them. Seems to be the Stephanie Weightman Channel at the moment product and presenter wise.
We'll give other retailers our cash for your stunning dies.
Best wishes.

So delighted about your new dies. The ones I have are lovely. Talking of which, great card - love the Raindrops on Roses dies.

floss said...

Hi again Sue,
Just a note for people who order their dies off the internet or like to go shopping in a shop, try MSA crafts or Sunrise Crafts. They are both going to stock Sue's dies. Who needs C and C anyway , they are way over-priced. X

Donna Jones said...

Hi Sue,
Pretty card, the die cuts look like a lace doily when arranged that way, pretty flower stamp too.
Congratulations on the success of your dies.

Hi Sue. So glad that the show went well and the retailers want your dies as much as we do : ) Todays card is so soft and gentle, love the sky blue card and ribbon, and both the Raindrops on Roses die and the floral bouquet stamp. It all works together beautifully. I hope that can get a rest now before C & C on Sunday. Only 4 sleeps now : )) Take care.

Good morning Sue, I'm so glad that your dies have received such a positive response from retailers, they are stunning and this card showcases that. I love the lacy, doily effect you've achieved and the soft colours are beautiful.x

Good Morning Sue,
Really thrilled for you that the tradeshow was a success, it's only right it should have been, because you have put so much work and effort into creating these beautiful dies, we all love them - but I'm sure by now you've realised that!!!
Today's card is just gorgeous, love these lacy effects dies, they almost have a Victorian feel, just love it all.
Hope the next few days are a little calmer for you, take care, love Brenda xxx

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
I loveeee this card today as it has the look of my mums old scraps to it. They have that victorian feel to them, the time of beauty and decadence in dresses. Each time i see the raindrops on roses demoed into a card it is beautiful and i wish i had these beautiful dies.
I am so glad that the retailers are seeing the potential in your beautiful dies Sue, as they deserve to be used my a wider audience than just us we drop at our special site. The versatility of them are fantastic and once they start demoing in their classes that craft shops have, they are going to be in much higher demand.
Thank you Cameeli for sending me some energy today as i will need it. Meeting my friend for coffee at Dunelms, a squint through there and then into Hobbycrafts. By the time we're finished in there i am in need of the 2nd coffee back at coffee shop, so i will use my extra energy boost wisely (in Hobbycrafts) although today is a window shopping day.
We're having a Brigadoon morning up here, you know when the wee village appears in the fog from nowhere, well that's Glenochil today. I hope that when i leave this morning that it is still here when i get back and doesn't do a full Brigadoon on me!
Take care everyone, i hope to see you all tomorrow.
Love and craft hugs,
Norah (Glenochil)

Hi Sue,
I'm so glad to hear that your dies have gone down well. It's one thing having all your friends rave about something but quite another getting the all important retailers on board as well. So many congratulations it must have been quite nerve racking and stressful. As for today's card it is a real beauty.

Really pretty card. Congratulations on the response to your dies. The dies I have bought are robust and cut beautifully too. Wonder what's next, when you have had a long rest of course!

Good luck Claire W, if it's meant to be it will happen.

Denise Hancock said...

Hi Sue lovely card - I was thinking about how one would use this die in the raindrops on roses set!!!. My Hollywood die set came yesterday so will have a go with it today. I have now got 7 sets of your new dies and will be looking for more when funds allow. There are lots of creative expressions suppliers stocking you beautiful dies. Create and Craft are the ones who will be missing out.

Hi Sue,
So glad that your dies have been a success at the trade show. You really deserve it as they are all fabulous. I am really surprised that C and C are not going to be stocking your dies if that is their choice, but have to say, it will be good news for the independent sellers! Whilst I admit that flexi pay is good, goods can usually be bought from other suppliers a lot cheaper and often with free p&p! Hope you can have a rest before the shows on Sunday. Well done again. Love Alison xx

Janice Wallace said...

Hi, Sue, everything in this card is stunning, I just love it.
Not surprised that your dies went down so well, and how great that you are not selling through c&c. Time the smaller retailers got a chance, plus we don't all like create and craft, not the best customer service if you have a problem, they are getting too big to care about their customer or smaller suppliers.
cheers,
Janice W

Morning Sue, what a fantastic card today simply love it. Well C&C have certainly thrown their dummy out the pram as the saying goes by not selling your dies, their loss! So glad the trade show went well, we all knew it would. Nora when you are out and about go and see the new craft shop that has opened in Grangemouth, she has lots of lovely things, and a lot cheaper than other craft shops in the area, give it a try. Take care everyone, Jess xx

A very effective card today Sue. I'm glad your blog followers have helped promote your dies. It's the least we could do in return for all you do for us.. c&c buyers have made a mistake but I'm sure you will still have phenomenal success through local retailers.
Caz x

Anne Crawford said...

Gorgeous Gorgeous Card! How I would love to receive a card such as this , but as it's Christine's Birthday she should have it ( in theory anyway)
I love this Raindrops on Roses die, but probably wouldn't find as many ways to use it as Sue does, you are just so clever!
I think ( and I'm pretty sure all The Wilsonettes will back me on this ) it really is time you had your Own Show demoing your own wonderful dies and designs ( QVC now don't seem to have any craft shows, maybe time to rectify that, although I hate their postage charges, but we would all be able to see you demoing your own products) I agree with Ang. (Mrs Duck ) C&C does seem overloaded with Stephanie Wieghtman's person and products , maybe they need a bit of competition? Just an Idea! Hope this brighter spell of weather is lifting the spirits of us all! xo

Brenda Hanlon said...

The dies are fab, it couldn't have gone any other way. This card is stunning, you're onto a winner in every way, gorgeous card.

ElizabethS said...

Hi Sue, love the card today, very pretty and delicate - love the colours.
I have been playing with the dies I bought from your range last week and they are brilliant. I was laid in the bath last night designing (in my head) what else I could do with them - using your phylosophy that dies don't have to be just the shape you see. Got a few ideas to try anyway.

Beautiful feminine card. I love it.
I am so pleased your new dies are a success - you deserve them to be. The amount of work that must have gone into designing/producing these is incredible. They are a joy to work with and all cut so beautifully. I can't wait to add more to my collection.

I am so pleased for your success with your latest collection of dies, and it's thoroughly deserved as they are just beautiful. I have a few already, but I think I may have to have them all.

Very pretty, delicate card love the touch of pale blue
Glad you had a successful time at Stitches and it's create and crafts loss not selling your dies, the cheapest place on the internet is IconUK followed by Joanna Sheen
Best wishes, Pat

Pat S Witney said...

Hi Sue
Surely you didn't think that your new dies would be well received by everyone. You are such a fantastic designer and you know just what us crafters will like. I'm glad that C & C aren't carrying your dies as I hate paying postage. I always find sites that hols creative expressions goods and don't charge any postage. Now back to the card. just love the white on white with just a hint of blue. I love the raindrops on roses dies, and have already bought the Happy Birthday stamp. These shown are next on my list. Hope you have a nice rest after a hectic time at the NEC and will record your shows as usual.

Jackie Durrant said...

A lovely card Sue, will be quite appropriate for Mother's Day with a change of sentiment tag. I'm so pleased for you that your dies are being so well received, time now for a rest after such a hectic few days, love from Jackie D

Hi Sue,
Beautiful card - would be a lovely wedding card. I'm so pleased your dies are such a success - you so deserve it. I've made a list in the order I hope to get them. Looking forward to seeing you on the box this weekend

Morning Sue and Wilsonettes. What a W.O.W. Just what I need. The very first glimps of this card makes it look like it's swathed in lace. Its beautiful Sue. Now then, didn't I say how chuffed all your girls would be to hear how wonderfully your new dies etc went down at the Trade show ? I hope my craft shop lady paid you a visit, I'll be VERY disapointed with her if she didn't !
My Feux Quilled flower die set appeared yesterday, so when Im thinking straight I'll take your advise Sue, and run them through with wax paper and play. Im neither in the zone to make anymore cards for market Sunday, or craft at all. I may share at some point as I love our Wilsonettes and I know a lot of you give fantastic support.
I wish Christine Happy Birthday. I agree.
And to all not feeling as bright as they'd like, or having a low day, love and thinking of you. Cameel, your doing a great job at the gym xx
Love to you Sue and our ladies.
Lancashire Steph xx

Good Morning Sue,

Once again another beautiful card to start our day and one which I would soooo.. love to win. So I'm keeping my fingers well and truly crossed. It's always a joy to log onto your blog each day to see what delight awaits us. I know I for one am NEVER disappointed. I too am surprised that your dies are not being sold via C&C and can't help wondering why this is!? Although I usually buy the majority of my dies through Joanna Sheen's website anyway, like one or two others, being able to buy them through C&C via the "flexipay" option has been useful in the past - looks like (like Patricia (Howarth)) I too will have to start saving my pennies.

Beautiful card looks just like a real lace doily.

Mac Mable said...

So very glad for you about the feedback of your dies from the trade show. They are fabulous and well deserved from all your hard work. Love the very pretty card today and thanks for sharing x

greendragon said...

Love the raindrops on roses die. Beautiful card. I always buy my dies online after having many issues with C&C customer service, so good to hear they are available - although they are peskily out of stock at the moment, so I am having to wait for the one I have just ordered. Shows how popular they are - did you ever doubt it!?

Kiraneries said...

Hi Sue, a gorgeous card. So delicate and pretty with the lacy die. So glad to hear your dies have been so well received. It is C&C's loss and the small retailers gain and ours. I can very often find dies and other items cheaper elsewhere.

Meg said...

So pleased your trade show days were a success - how could they not be.

I love this card and the sparkle looks pink on my screen which brings out the pink of the flowers - lovely.

Lindsay Martin said...

Hi Sue, another stunner today, very pretty and so delicate. Silly old c&c for not having your dies, but I'm sure you will do just as well without them, it's great news that so may of the retailers were so positive about them and deservidly so as we all know how amazing they are. Ss

Gail said...

Glad you had a productive time at the show and not surprised that you have so much interest in your dies xx glad C&C not stocking them as they just 'bump' up the prices so glad that the local retailers get a fair shot and supplying them to the public rather than having to wait until C&C have had the exclusivity xx Like the card but a bit too fussy for me - sorry but as always I can the design element and thought that has gone into making it xx GailT xx

yorkielass said...

Hello Sue, Love today's card, it is so fresh and delicate. My goodies have arrived, have just put them on to magnetic sheets and will be playing later, they are such gorgeous dies CONGRATULATIONS again Sue and stay on cloud nine as long as you like, it is so deserved.
Happy Birthday Christine. Norah enjoy your day out. Hugs to Steph.
Take care everyone.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Today's card is so beautiful !! The raindrops on roses die looks great !! The card looks very pretty and delicate and as someone said earlier i think it looks like Victorian lace to !! I love the colours you have used and the central focal point is also very pretty. I love your interlocking circles background folder to. This is a really beautiful feminine card Sue. I am so glad your trade shows were such a success. All your dies sets are just gorgeous and I cant wait to get my hands on some more of them. Unfortunately I have to wait until I can save up some more money now. I recieved the classic bow set of dies yesterday and the bows are just sooo cute !! This is such a beautiful set Sue. I really want/need the filigree bow set now !! I have your Roses die set to but I have never made a rose before and I just sat and stared at them !! Please post some instructions for them on your blog soon as I really want to to make some but don't know where to start !!
I hope everyone is ok. Take care and lots of love to you all, from Tres x x x

Alison Hayman said...

Hi Sue - another stunning card. Glad it all went well at the trade show - we never doubted how well they would be received.

Jacquie said...

Hi Sue,

This is stunning, love how you have used the die and the limited colour palette really enriches the card.

Shame your dies wont be available on C & C as then they may have been at an affordable combined price, with flexipay lol! At least we are able to purchase them from Creative Expressions.

Love & hugs

Hi Sue,
I'm so pleased that you have been encouraged by the response to your dies. Your work speaks for itself because everything you do is amazing and your dies are top of that list.

Karen Knight said...

Hi Sue,
Love the card - very pretty. Anyone would be over the moon to receive such a creation. Some of your dies arrived in time for the weekend, and had a brief play before getting poorly. They cut like a dream! Hope to have a real long play time this weekend. Congrats on the interest generated at Stitches and I hope to see a very different type of flood..... Sue Wilson products all over the craft shops!! Love Karen x

Margaret said...

Hi Sue
Delighted to know that you are experiencing the success that you so deserve, well done.
A most delightful card so delicate almost like lace, I love this Heartfelt die.
Take care everyone, thinking of you Steph, Heather T and Tina with Berkeley, don't overdo things Norah.
Margaret corgi owner

Message to Patricia Howarth and those that had hoped to see Sue's dies on C & C please don't despair!
Please do take a look on IconUK web site who are stocking Sue's new dies, they are the cheapest I can find, and postage is free (so that alone saves on C & C very high charges)
There is very little waiting too. I ordered Monday evening and they arrived well packed today, quite often they dispatch within 1 hour of receiving an order! I have used them for some time now and never had any problems, unlike C & C.

Mrs B said...

Hi Wilsonettes. Just wanted to say that Sue chose not to sell through C & C as she wasn't prepared to make everyone else wait due to C & Cs exclusivity clause. Once again Sue is thinking of all of us crafters rather than making £'s fast, bless her. We will all get a better deal from Joanna Sheen etc by paying a fair price and NO P & P. Flexipay always seems like a good option but when you look around it's not always the saving you think it is. I have fallen into that trap before now. Hope this all makes sense.Take care.

Jayne S said...

Really pretty card which would be lovely for mothers day.

I am so pleased your dies have been so sucessful. Its about time you are recognised for your amazing talent in creating such lovely intricate dies and the beautiful and unusual cards you have been inspiring us to have a go at for many years. I do hope this is just the start of your future success.
As usual your card today is stunning. Patiently awaiting for your dies i ordered to arrive. Although disappointed the bow dies have sold out. I will wait for more stock to come in.

Ruth Davies said...

Hi Sue - My Italian dies arrived last week from Joanna Sheen and they are gorgeous and cut beautifully. I can also recommend IconUK for dies, including Spellbinders - they have always given me great service and there is no P&P to pay.

Trish said...

Hi Sue,
Beautiful card as always. TFS. I'm not surprised your dies have been well received, they're great. Mine arrived last wee and I'm delighted with the results.
