Friday, 2 May 2014


Hello my crafty friends!  Another week just flying by and it's Friday already!  I hope today's card will give you a little crafty inspiration for the weekend!  I started by embossing my white card using the Art Deco Fanfare embossing folder.  I wrapped a piece of Green and white striped grosgrain ribbon around the bottom of the card and taped the ends to the back.  I tied a double bow and added it to the middle of my ribbon with a couple of glue dots.  I topped the middle of it with a white crystal sparkler.  For the focal element, I used the San Francisco die set from my California Collection and used the cutting edge from the Basic Set A set to give a slightly larger emboss area which I inked while still in the die.  I used Mowed Lawn distress ink for that. I cut two of the tags from the California Collection and crisscrossed them with some mounting foam and added them to the middle of the previous die.  I stamped my sentiment in black and cut it out with the Decorative  Set B die and inked it very lightly with Mowed Lawn before removing it from the die.  I added it to my focal element with some mounting foam.  I made two pretty stick pins to match and added them to my bow.  I finished the card with a few pearls in the corners and a double white pierced mat layer.  Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue
WOW What a beautiful card. The Art Deco folder and California Collection are both in my possession so this is a must try this weekend - with just a slight change to the colour - I might try pink!
It's my 33rd wedding anniversary today and we don't usually exchange cards but I made a card using the California border and tag with a filigree bow and gilded butterfly - so I can keep it!!! LOL (Not throwing it away either).
Hooray a long weekend again!!
Enjoy your day.

Hi Sue, WOW What a Truly Awesome Card,
I really Love The Beautiful Art Deco Fanfare Embossing Folder.

I Love how you've cut out the Die, then inking using
The Mowed Lawn Distress Ink from Sir Tim Lol!
Well I Love your Cards, even if they have Bows or not, so for me its great to see The Return of The Fabulous Green/White Grossgrain Ribbon, I love the Sparkler and The Two Awesome Stick Pins!

Anonymous said...

GM Sue - love this - I ordered some californian collection (my fave set) dies that came yday - including those used in this card - I was surprised how big the Set B dies were - lovely though - you have to see them in real life to appreciate them I think. The border die was so long it didn't fit in my box - I keep my dies on mag sheets in A5 boxes labelled into types - one box is for Sue Wilson dies - so I have had to keep the border elsewhere with a note on the mag sheet in the box with the corner and tag on, as to where it is so I dont forget!

Love the green freshness of this - and that EF is a fave already!

Happy Friday all

Lynne Mills said...

Hi Sue, what a beautiful zingy card. Love the embossing folder another must have. The San Francisco die set is really lacy and pretty. The grosgrain ribbon adds a real burst of colour to the card. Just yummy. Lol lynne m x x x

Fur babies fast asleep on their backs in the lounge after waking up at 4:55am this morning. I would love to have some of their energy. Yesterday was spent chasing each other around the garden in a game of "tag your it" . The best bits were when they would have their front halves on the floor with bums in the air growling at each other as if to say "its your turn to chase me , come on ". No doubt another nutty day in prospect with them.

Gentle hugs and love to - Lynda, Yorkielass, Lindsay, Norah, Magpie and Alimecca.
Sheila - happy anniversary
To all "Wilsonettes" have a great day. Lol to all x x x x

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
What a fresh spring coloured card you have made for us today Sue. The fresh green colour adds that pop of zing to a beautiful card. I must agree about the bow though, how i would love to be able to tie a beautiful bow such as this and with the addition of the pin it makes a gift instead of just a beautiful card.
Cameeli flower, i hope you are having a lovely time with your mum and dad, and tomorrow you enjoy all the compliments that are sure to come your way with everything that you have done to make your boys' day carry off lovely and you will have a new daughter by the end of the day. Enjoy yourself our beautiful MOB and tell us all about it when you catch your breath back.
Happy Anniversary Sheila, i hope your hubby likes his card and takes you out for a lovely meal, although i think it should be a medal you get.
Enjoy your birthday money Mrs. B and all i can advise is the Dies A and B set from the California collection, the bows and roses from the finishing touches, Seville with either Cordoba or Granada from the Spanish Collection would be the starting point as they give you the biggest variety of possibilities. Combining the different ones from the sets give you endless combinations, but enjoy it most of all as it is exciting finally being able to get that longed for die, and then you can't wait for it to come. I think i am going to swap my hubby for someone elses as he never gets me a birthday present at all, so i'm so envious(ignore me) of all my lovely blog friends whose hubby actually understands and supports their hobbies and contributes to them, you are so very lucky.
Well although we are cold today in Central, we do have the sun escaping now and then trying to break free and is making for a great day for everyone. I hope that where ever you are, you're having a lovely day. Take care my dear friends, with gentle hugs to our more fragile of blog friends,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil) and my beautiful hills.

Have a good w/end everyone.

Hi Sue. Hope you are happy, well, and relaxed. Morning dear Wilsonettes. Im certain that tomorrow will be emotional for you Cam. All the hour's cutting butterflies, embossing and dreaming about them will pay off tomorrow and like Tina, guests will be talking about the day for a long time to come. So although today maybe just a bit hectic - (maybe an understatement) Im wishing for you all a special day full of special memories, and weather report looks promising : )
As one Wilsonette celebrates a new start, our Wilsonette recalls her day 33yrs ago. Happy Anniversary Sheila. Hope you love your card lol.

This card today is a great big spring green and white picture of W.O.W.ness (wonder of Wilson)ness. Its magnificent. If.I could get on the floor and throw a craft tantrum I would - I want the folder, I want the dies, I want the ribbon, the sparkler, the ink pad, I want or I'll scream and scream until Im sick !!! Woah, now Im showing my age lol !
This is such a stand out card. A card that would stop a conversation in its tracks, imagin this W.O.W standing next to a pile of cards from the best card shop, and it would still stand tall above all other's. There is NO mistaking that this is a Sue Wilson work of sensational art - ooooh, that bow Sue, breath taking.

Sending warm gentle hugs to those that feel down or unwell today.

Love you.

Hi Sue,
A lovely spring fresh colour combo today and that little touch of ink on the die cut makes all the difference. I don't use enough green in my cards,(unless its the leaves for a floral design), must try harder!
Great photos of your Mom's happy birthday celebrations, wishing you both many more of the same.
P.s. Love the die set and the embossing folder, more goodies to put on my wish list, sigh.

Enjoy yourself with mum and friends. xx

Hello there. Sue this is a beautiful card. The fanfare folder is lovely. The ribbon is rerunning. Green is my fav colour so I would be thrilled to have this card made for me.

Oh Sue. I love this its right up my street.
It's a special friends birthday in June and this is her favourite colour. I don't have all the items used but I'm sure if I put my mind to it I could come up with something.
Hope you and everyone has a fab weekend.
Lots of crafty love, Jo xx

Hi Sue
Beautiful card - absolutely beautiful. Anyone would be thrilled to receive this card. I must say I do struggle with green but I really love this shade. I tend to avoid green like the plague, which is something I need to sort out with myself. This has made me want to experimet with green. Thank you.
Bye for now.

Morning Sue :)
Yesterday I made the card for my mother in law using some of the Spanish collection. I was so impressed that I have just bought the corner and border dies.
They are just stunning and I think I'll probably end up with all the collections.
I now need to be rich lol! Xxx

Hi Sue and everyone my favourite colour ,the apple green goes so well with that ribbon.I made a birthday card for my sister in this colour last year,now I can make it with your Dies.This card is spectacular in every way.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW !! This card is soooo beautiful !! I really love it !! As you know, green is my ultimate favourite colour and the white and spring green colours are just fab together. I must give this card a try as I have all the ingredients except the mowed lawn ink, so I may have to try a different shade of green instead. My Mum loves green to so I could make this for her birthday and just save it until July !! It is such a fresh, spring looking card, it is very pretty. I bought your Art Deco EF from your stall at Alley Palley and it is beautiful !! Thank you for sharing this beautiful card with us today Sue.
Sending lots of love and best wishes to you Sue and your family, love Tres x x x

Cameeli, Sending you lots of love, hugs and best wishes for your Son's Wedding Day tomorrow. I am sure it will be a fantastic day and all your hard work with those Butterflies were well worth it. Have a wonderful day, love Tres x x x

To Norah and Steph, Sending you both lots of love today. x x x
To Pam and Tina, You are always in my thoughts. Lots of love to you, Tres x x x

To all the Wilsonettes, I hope everyone has a great day today and a great Bank Holiday Weekend. Lots of love, Tres x x x

Hi Sue, a very pretty and fresh looking card today. Mowed Lawn is one of my favourite inks from Tim and the Art Deco folder is already on my wish list.

SHARICA said...

Wow this is lovely .. keep em coming xx

Pearl said...

Wow Sue, what a fab card today. I have both Californian dies sets so will definately be giving it a try.

It works so well with the stripy ribbon and the toning ink is just magic.

Oska is still with lampshade on head but is managing not to bump into things so much now and the wounds are healing. The vet today checked him over today and he's still grounded for another week!

the kittens are going mad to get out but still being let out under supervision by Dave, bless him.

Craftihappiness to all love from Pearl.

Tina Eldridge said...

Hi Cameeli

Hope everything runs smoothly for you tomorrow, and I hope the weather is in your favour. I send all best wishes to your son and his bride for a long and happy life together. Enjoy yourself Cameeli, and if you are anything like me you will have made some beautiful memories.

Kind regards :-)

Beautiful card Sue, I do like green on cards and that bow is a proper SW bow!!!
I have the embossing folder and its gorgeous, don't like art deco but this is so versatile and can be used on any card.

Another fab card - luv everything about it and the colours are fab too xx after watching and listening to one of your shows I decided to buy the Basic and Decorative frames after you said how they layered so well xx well I cut them out with scrap card to see how they looked and decided to make a card around the samples I had cut - I am posting it today - it has to be one of the easiest cards that I have ever made - thanks for all your fab dies - I now am the proud owner of several of them and they are all fab xx GailT xx
