Happy Birthday

 Hello bloggers and Happy St. Patrick's Day!  I do hope everyone had a nice relaxing (even lazy) weekend!  More flowers today, but how about some pretty daisies this time.  I reached for my new A4 Art Deco Fanfare embossing folder (these will be on my show on the 30th, but are available at retailers now).  I embossed the entire coconut white card background with it.  I decided to add a more decorative touch by adding my Italian border on the side but doing a white on white with it.  I cut out the Heart circle using the Decorative frames from the Italian Collection as well.  Using some blush card, I added a circular frame to go behind it, just peeking out through the hearts so it was very subtle.  I added foam mounting tape to the back of the circle frame to raise it for dimension.  Next I stamped the Justrite daisies from their Hello Daisy stamp set in black Archival ink.  I coloured just the flowers and cut them both out by hand, nipping away the leaves from the stamped image.  I used a Milled Lavender distress marker to colour them with a Scattered Straw marker for the centres.  I mounted them on foam and added them to the middle of my circular frame, but made them overlap the edges. I cut a few leaves from the Delicate Aster die, inked through them with Shabby Shutters and added them around the flowers.  Next I stamped the sentiment which was actually part of another Justrite stamp set called Vintage Rose Labels Seven, cut it into a banner and inked the edges with Milled Lavender.  I added it below my flowers with mounting foam.  I used some matching Vintage Ribbon to tie a messy bow and added a white crystal sparkler to the centre.  As per my recent obsession, I made some matching stick pins with some beads from my stash to add to my bow.  I finished with a double white pierced mat for a simple and easy to make card. The finished dimensions are 7" x 8 1/4" in size.  Hope you like it!
  Remember, even though it is Tuesday, there is no video for tomorrow.  So you won't be too disappointed, I will post another card using some of my new die line since I have had so many requests lately!  The videos will begin again on March 27th!  All for now, Sue x

Fabulous card, I love your new embossing folders they will definitely have to be added to my 'list'. The Italian border is so pretty I haven't got any of that set yet but love them all. The daisy stamp and your colouring is beautiful.and what can I say about your pins that hasn't been said before? Yes I am lucky Pat I am surrounded by beautiful beaches and what started as an early morning walk turned into a marathon and I never got back until 4pm, dinner was a little late lol. Pam nice to see you at No 1 sending a hug to all that need one. Happy St Patricks day everyone especially my family living in Cork.

Hi Sue
I'm not usually the biggest Art Deco fan(I tend to avoid that theme and Oriental in craft for some reason?)
but when I saw this folder a bit ago it was my favourite of your designs and after seeing this card that thought still remains. It's gorgeous, I keep thinking of it as shell or fan like too as opposed to just Art Deco, so I'm wondering if it will go with your stamp Seashell Roses ?
What a lovely flower too.
Looking forward to seeing the folders in action. x

Today's gift is soooo pretty. Just the thing for a little girl through to an aged little girl (does that make sense?). The colour so gentle and soft and I love the way you make your flowers peep through the centre circle.
I'm even more sad now that my order of coffee cup and daisy will not be arriving.
See you tomorrow.

OMG One of my favourites I fell in love with this embossing folder when I first saw it and Clai01 don't think of it as Art Deco just think of it as a pretty pattern I love the way you've used it Sue- not an Art Deco image in sight The folder is a def must have for me coz I can use it for male cards too and justify the cost Happy St Patricks Day everyone

Gorgeous card, very feminine love just a hint of pink, very pretty and subtle, LOVE the art deco folder and the dies you've used. I have added these to my shopping list for Alli Pally. (I need them)
Happy St Patrick's day to everyone. My mother was Irish and every St Patrick's day would be sent a bunch of Shamrock from relatives in Ireland, we as children went to school with a little bit of this shamrock pinned to our clothes, I used to feel pretty special. Oh the memories of childhood !!!!
The day, love Brenda xxx

Hi Sue
Another stunning white on White card today. I'm also not a big fan of Art Deco, but I love this folder. I ordered a couple of them and now wish I had ordered this one as well after seeing it close up and personal so to speak. How did you manage to cook Heather after all that walking. My brother in law lives in Bournemouth and we always walk the dogs along the beach or in the New Forest. It really is lovely even when it's freezing cold. Hugs to Pam , nice to see you again. hope your knee gets better soon Cameeli, and try not to aggravate it by doing to much exercise.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW !!! This is such a beautiful, gorgeously pretty card today !!! I would really like to make this one. I really need to get the EF and the circle dies ASAP !! I love the new embossing folder it just looks fab and I think it is my favourite of all your new folders Sue. I love the white on white and the hints of colour. The circle dies (sorry can't remember their name !! ) look great with the coloured card behind them. I love your bow and stick pins too !! My Mum loves making jewelry and she is coming over today to show me how to make my own stick pins. I am not really sure where to start and she has some beautiful beads. I can't wait !! Thanks Sue for another really beautiful card !!

Pam, it is so lovely to see you back here at number one. it just wasn't the same without you. Take it one day at a time. As others have said keep crafting and visiting the blog. It has certainly kept me going through some really tough times. Lots of love and hugs to you love Tres x x x

Tina, thinking of you always too. Our little Yorkshire Terrier dog Fudge, who got diagnosed with type 2 diabetes has suddenly gone completely blind a couple of days ago. It will cost a lot of money just to remove one of the cataracts. We have got to get saving now. The vet said he may have another few years left in him yet so we owe it to him to try and help him.

Cameeli, Wishing you a speedy recovery. Hope you feel better soon love Tres x x x

Lots of love to you Sue and all the Wisonettes love Tres x x x

Good morning Sue,
Well we are at the start of another week, the sun is shining and I am off to sit I my newly organised craft room!
I am hoping that inspiration will shine in too!
Today's card is lovely Sue, I love the embossing folder, that's going to be a well used one, I find that I always get drawn to either the cascading hearts or the more lattice heart one, I have them all but just don't seem to use them, maybe that should be the theme of the week,work outside your comfort zone!
Hugs to all,

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes. Happy St. Patricks Day to all our Irish lovelies here.
Oh Sue, what a fresh pretty card you have delighted us with today, its absolutly beautiful. I adore your new folder (will have to wait until I have an A4 machine before I start investing) I was once told to "just buy them and cut it down to fit your BS" ! Errr I dont think so ! Yes it would be so lovely to be able to 'keep up' with A4 folders but id have to buy another when I eventually save enough for my machine, besides, if Im made to wait, I may be behind the times but I will be even more chuffed when I know Ive saved hard, gone to market when not really up to going, made loads of cards to hopefully help make people smile, it will be a good day when I buy my first A4 Sue Wilson embossing folder : )
MYRA - my little local shop is in Kearsley Bolton (Crafty By Nature) and she is a love stocking our most favourite goodies : )
TINA - Debenhams sometimes have a lovely collection of shoes for your MOTB outfit.
PAM - Your our Number 1 : )

Sending gentle cuddles to our family today, if you feel unwell, unloved, upset or fragile these cuddled are for you from me. Watch that knee Cameeli love.
Im done.

Love to all.

Hellooo Sue and the Wilsonettes! Happy St Patricks day all! Well, another jaw droppingly gorgeous card Sue. This is so so pretty. I do so love the beautiful deco fanfare embossing folder. The Italian edge, the heart circle die the flowers and the soft pastel colours that you have used and those pins! It's just all round breathtaking! Eeeee Sue, I think we can all be patient about the videos. You do so much for us. We all appreciate everything you have done and do. So chuffed to be a part of this, our family "Wilsonettes!". Pam, so lovely to see you again xx Cameeli, try rest your knee as much as you can. Kitty, hope everything's okay (how can you say it other than this....) with your plumbing....! Lol! Good to see you hun. Brenda, what a lovely memory of the Shamrock that you have. I'd love to go to Ireland. My dads family originated from there so who knows? Tres, so sorry about Fudge. They give you never ending love and devotion so it's nice to say it's our turn to help you if we can Margaret and Evelyn what lovely sayings x Pauline A, thinking of you and may you see properly soon. Tina, Bon Marche do some lovely things. David Emmanuel who designed Lady Dianna's wedding dress, designs for them. Anne, have a wonderful holiday! Deborah, will be thinking of you and all the families who no longer have their mums here. Out of sight but they're always there..... Heather how lucky that you live close to a beach. We used to live close to a beach too at the top of the road, just down from Scarborough Castle. Hope all is okay Norah x Not seen you but then this has taken me so long to do you'll be there already! Lol! Lovely place. Anyway, sending love and hugs to all our family Wilsonettes. xx Love Karen xx

Barbara said...

Beautiful card, just gorgeous, again I am not a fan of Art Deco but your folder is not too typical of that style and can be used with any style of card.
Tres, sorry to hear about Fudge, hope you manage to get her eyes treated, wee soul!!!!!

Hi Sue

So So pretty, I love it. The stick pins and bow are just the prettiest finishing touch. I have just got back from the wholesalers, and low and behold the art deco folder was in my post box, it's stunning. I ordered it to make my daughter a wedding card, and looking at today's background I'm glad I did.

Steph, I went on line today on the Debenhams site, and purchased my wedding shoes. Thank you. Although I looked in Debenhams on Saturday they can't show their whole range. So thank you again. X

Tres, So sorry to hear the sad news about Fudge. I know it will cost a fortune, but you can't put a price on that special friendship.I had a cat e 3days after we got married. I asked if I could have our own very 1st pet,he said when you are bored with me you can have a cat. We married on the Saturday, had a cat on Monday. Anyway sorry, when she was 16 she went blind suddenly due to old age, but she learned to maneuver her way around the house and garden. For a while she was like a pin ball machine,but as long as we did'nt move any furniture inside and in the garden she always found her sunniest spot. I did ask the vet if I was being cruel, and he said NO, she has seen all she wants to see now, just make sure she finds her sunniest spot in the garden and has your lap to cuddle up on in the evenings she will be happy. She coped very well and lived for another 2 1/2yrs. I'm sure Fudge will cope also. Lots of love to you both.

Kind regards :-)
