Spanish Rose

Hi bloggers!  A lovely card for today's video instalment.  The popular Codoba die is featured in this one, along with the Classic rose and decorative frames from the Italian Collection.  I really think you will like this one.  Just a gentle reminder to become a Youtube subscriber while you are there watching the video.  You will automatically be notified by email every time we add a new video to the channel.  The subscriptions are steadily growing and to sweeten the pot, I think I'll offer some blog candy when we hit the 5,000 subscriber mark.  I know it is a bit of a challenge, but all you need to do is click the Youtube logo on the side of my blog and then click on "subscribe", simple as pie!

Buy from Joanna Sheen

Finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x 7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
What an absolutely stunning card that anyone would be thrilled to receive and one that would be framed. I love what you've done with the Cordoba frame it's a brilliant idea. The corner die is such a pretty one that I've used quite a lot ( the tag in that set is my all time favourite). The video was fabulous and the tip about glueing the edges of each petal then rolling it was genius and makes the rose look more realistic thanks for that tip.
I'm already subscribed to your You Tube channel but you will easily make the 5,000.
Hugs x

Hi Sue and all Wilsonettes. Love how you co-ordinated your clothes with the beautiful Spanish Rose tutorial this morning. I feel right 'on trend'.and up to date as I have the Italian decorative frames and Cordoba die, so two down, two for my list !
As I said yesterday, I have my tea cups all stamped plus a few flowers and are ready with my marker pens.
Every piece of your gift today stands out in its own way, the pattern ftom the folder, beautiful corners and the red beneath makes it all POP, such a wonderful card.

Thank you.

To those lovely friends here that have emailed me and left caring messages here (you know who you are) show just how genuinly caring you really are, so many thanks for showing me you DO really care.
I have to be in Leeds by 1pm but have lots to sort out before the hour's drive. So I'll send friendly caring hugs to Pam and Tina, to our lovely Wilsonettes having a really awful time - I care too.
So lots of hugs and love to all...
Hope to be back soon : )

Lancashire Steph xx

Sandy G said...

Hi Sue
What a gorgeous card! The dies are fabulous and I love the felt roses. The way you curl the edges around your pokey tool makes them look so real. Genius! Can't wait to try this as I love making felt flowers. Thanks for sharing.
Hugs to all.

Alison Couchman said...

So, so beautiful. I'm sure any recipient would gasp in delighted surprise on opening the envelope. This is a card to keep and treasure. Would be great for weddings, valentines and loads of special occasions.
A day of contrasts for me today - off to a course on making wired flowers this morning then to outpatients to collect a heart monitor and learn how to use it. Strange kind of day . . .

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. This is a real stunner. I love the red/white combo : ) The roses are gorgeous and your tip on rolling the tips makes them even more rose like, brilliant. I subscribed to your Youtube a while ago, if I can do it anyone can, it is so easy. I'm sure you will reach 5000 very quickly. Not long now before you reach 5000 followers on your blog either. That will be another thing to be so proud of. It proves how much so many of us love you and are grateful for all of the time and energy you that you put into your crafting and blog. Thank you Sue:)
Pam, sending my daily hug for you : )
Julie and Lee, I missed your comment yesterday, I hope that there is some improvement Julie: )
Norah, I am sorry that you didn't have a sunny day yesterday, it was a little dull looking here but hot and dry. Fingers crossed that your hills are clear today for you : )
Lanc Steph, I hope the time passes as quickly as possible for you, just get those Promarkers out and colour the time away. I will be thinking of you : )
To everyone else that is suffering in any way send hugs.
Take care.

Brenda Lello said...

Morning Sue,
WOW what a stunning card, and like Steph I thought how well you co-ordinated with you card! I would be over the moon if I were to recieve such a beautiful card.

Hope you and all of this fantastic family have a great day, Love Brenda xxx

Steph, love and best wishes you know you are in our thoughts and prayers, same message to Pam, Julie and Lee, Lindsey, Norah, Alison, and anyone else you know who YOU are - sorry if all the names don't come to mind LOL xxx

Anne Crawford said...

Sorry about that ! I've had problems trying to have my comment published, I tried 8 times yesterday with no success , so I had to rejoin Google (at least I think that's what I did) I was getting so frustrated to think I wasn't going to get back into the blog! I Wish I had some of your patience Sue, after watching your excellent video of you making the felt roses ( which are truly gorgeous) ! I love today's card , the Cordoba die looks wonderful made into a square and I love the Spanish corners, I've put them on my wish list!
Thinking of all of you needing special hugs today xo

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
What a beautiful way to start the day; cup of coffee and joining Sue Wilson in her craft room and presenting the most gorgeous gift.
I love love love today's gift - apart from it being so elegant and regal. I can also see it in so many colours and for so many occasions and it's just the one I needed to finish off my task of three retirement cards. I spent the biggest part of yesterday trawling through Sue Wilson's works of art to find inspiration - I managed to whittle down four but still couldn't make up my mind so today's gift has done that just for me.
Today is going to be a 'cutting' day and then tomorrow it's a full on assembling and finishing.
Take care everyone especially Steph today and see you tomorrow.

Maureen Killen said...

Good morning Sue,
Hope you are well. Ooooh, this is the most gorgeous, scrumptious card ever - and I've got most of the dies!!! Yay. Will have to use the Bitty Blossoms die for the flowers but will pinch your idea of making a square out of an oblong. I know you've done it before but it looks fantastic with the Cordoba die.
I hope everyone who is ill or poorly is getting better and that Lancashire Steph gets over her hospital treatment without too much distress. Also I second the comments made by Yorkielass and Norah yesterday, I don't know how you remember all the names, I had to write yours out last night when I read all the blog - which I
do before I go to bed!!
Judy M, when I have a clear out I donate unwanted items to the local Hospice and they use them in their Art Therapy Room. Anything which I think may not be up to scratch, I give to the local school for the breakfast and after-school clubs. They are always so grateful.
I probably won't ever do such a long blog again so hope everyone is having a good day and will be able to get some crafting in! xx

Maureen Killen said...

P,s, will go now onto Youtube to help to get the 5000

Hi Sue
A really gorgeous card today and luckily I have the Cordoba Die so I can have a try at cutting it down, it looks so effective.
I will look forward to watching the video later as have lots to do this morning and then off out to lunch.
Miserable day today and looks like being awful tomorrow when I am off to Canterbury on a trip organised by the local Hospice for their volunteers. However, I am sure we will have a good time! I have been to the wonderful Cathedral before but if it is so wet we can always do a bit of Retail Therapy and I can be on the lookout for a Craft Shop!
Bye for now.

Hi Sue,
Hi to all crafting friends,
What a beautiful card Sue! I said Wow when I saw it!
Thanks for the great tips on the felt rose - don't have red but have pink and cream so will be practising later! The cordoba die I also love and it looks beautiful as a square!
Thank you. I also subscribed to You Tube ages ago but like Maggie ( better without a bow,) ,don't get any reminders. Thought it was just me! Phew! I wondered if I'd got something turned to off on my iPad which was maybe the problem? Don't know!
Steph - safe travel and remember we're with you in spirit and and if our good wishes could make you well you'd be home by tea time : ) x. Maybe you could give colouring classes on the ward . Take care.
Brenda - have a great time. Hope weather is good for you . A lovely experience ! Enjoy.
My hayfever's bad today so gardens to be avoided at the moment . Come to think of it - today's rose matches my nose!
Lee and Julia trust all is ok with you. Sending love and crafty hugs!
To all other many friens on this blog! Have a lovely day
If you can. If you are struggling - sending love to you x
Sandra - do hope you get your grand Calibur very soon - bad enough being restricted in what you are able to do without your enjoyment of the things you CAN do being spoiled too. x
Lynne - hope your neuralgic pain is a bit easier. x
Love Myra

Hi Sue,
A stunning card, what a striking colour combo, very Spanish, I think. The felt roses are gorgeous and accent the delicate dies beautifully.

fluffycat said...

Re YouTube reminders. Maggie (better without a bow) and Myra P - I subscribed ages ago but was not receiving notifications so I have had a little explore. If you click on the 'subscribed' button on the top right hand side a drop-down box titled 'subscription preferences' will pop up. I have ticked the box that says 'send me updates' and hopefully will now start to receive notifications.
It's worth a try!

Hi Sue, wow what a stunning card , just pops with the red. Love the cordoba die, it is so good when you can get multiple uses out of a die. The trick with gluing down the edge of the flower is great , I must remember it for the future. Come home soon you are soooooooo missed lol lynne m x x x

Well head didn't move in bed last night cuz pesky poochies were either side of me with their heads on my pillow stopping me from moving at all. I know how it feels in a straight jacket now!!!!!. Informed the girls that there would be NO repeat of yesterday, well they listened partly cuz no bees were chased but a few more plants lost their flower heads, if hubby asks gonna say that the roots must be ever so dry so the flowers are falling off. If I tell him its poochies I know I'll be on permanent garden patrol!!!. I swear its Tilly that is the instigator and Cully goes along with her ideas. After lunch Tilly wanted cuddles and I told her later as I had got to a good part in my book well with a glare she goes to the end of the settee plonks herself down with a huff and starts chewing the corner of another cream cushion with the side of her mouth!!!!!. Tilly I yell leave my blasted cushions alone. She looks at me for a moment then goes back
to chewing. If you stop chewing I will give you a cuddle I say. Tilly then slowly lifts herself up walks to me plonks herself down and looks at me. Well you could have knocked me down with a feather !!!!! Told hubby when he popped in and said that I knew the little beggars understand me but not that they choose to ignore what I say. My flabber has never been so gasted. This calls for devious methods on my part but I've got a feeling my two fur babies will be just as devious if not more.

June, Lindsay, Lynda, Tres, Norah, Karen,Alison,Myra,Barbara,Frances and Sandra - head slowly on the mend , thank you massive hugs and lol from fur babies x x
Steph- gentle hugs to you, hope you're soon back on the blog x x x
To all on the blog lol x x x x

Bejay Roles said...

Sue, what a wonderful card :). I can't work due to poor health so I don't have too much spare cash, which means so far I've only been able to get one of your beautiful dies (Seville). Looking at all the great cards you create with all the different die series, I can see that I'm going to have to try and save up for all of the sets :) What I really need is a fairy godmother lol.

Very striking colour combo!

Paper Junkie said...

Sue - hello. What a beautiful card - so up my street AND I have all the dies - but sadly no time to craft at present. I haven't been able to comment for some weeks due to being away so much and a lot of heartache. Been trying to catch up with my own life in between visits to my very poorly sister. When I have time I look forward to looking at all the lovely cards I've been missing. I'm a bit out of touch to say the least but I will try and comment when I can.. love to all X

greendragon said...

Love the codoba dies and adapting the rectangle into the square is a great idea. Thanks for the video on making the rose. I have subscribed to help you meet your 5000 target!

Hi Sue
How do you keep doing it? my favourite colours today. The lace effects on the corners are very pretty. The flowers look beautiful. Magpie sometimes it is your browser, I have this trouble with Julia Watts blog. I have to change from Firefox to Internet Explorer to be able to leave a message. Very excited tomorrow am going to Julia Watts workshop. Crafty hugs to all Wilsonettes in need of a hug.

Lindsay Martin said...

Lovely red and white today, I will try and watch the video before I find my way to bed, another busy one today had soe rugs to remake for a client, (I say remake rather than mend as they were in such a bad state!) got them all done though, and have so e to wash and dry tomorrow so fingers crossed I will get some crafting done tomorrow, as well as off horse shopping as Sue calls it in the evening!
Lynne thank you for sharing your photos of your gorgeous girls, will send a hat over... and perhaps some extra strength glue, think you are going to need it for your very clever girls!
Barbara I hope this morning went ok and you had a fantastic time this afternoon.
June hope you have had a good day.
Norah, I hope you are ok today in those hills, missing your post.
Julie and Lee I hope all is well with you both and there is ongoing improvement.
Gail and Tina hugs to you both as always.
Cameeli, Pam, Alison, Karen, Tres and all of the wonderful Wilsonettes big hugs to you all.
A special hug to Steph who is by now in hospital, just watch those pens on the sheets. Love and hugs to all xx

Pat S Witney said...

Hi Sue
Another stunning card today using one of your collection. A bit brain dead today as have been travelling back from Austria. lances Steph thinking of you in hospital and keep your pecker up. Lots of love to you and Norah. Hope your hills are alive today Norah. A pun, as I've been to the sound of music land. Hugs to Pam and everyone else who needs one today.

This card is so lovely must get the classic rose as I love the flower. I'm so sorry that you are having to go into hospital. Please know that our thoughts (& prayers for those of us who believe) go with you, for you to, Get well soon....
Sadly I never knew that you had new dies out as it is so hard for me to keep up due to my illness.

Karen G Ratcliffe said...

What a lovely lacy looking card. The video was very informative, especially cutting and covering the square with the beautiful felt roses. The red and white color is very rich looking. Love your designs.

Another fab card .. xx

Nadine in Spain said...

What a beautiful card, Sue! Cutting down the Cordoba die gives you more size options, and even with all the matting and layering this one will easily fit in a standard 8 x 8 envelope. Stunning!
