Happy Birthday

 Hello bloggers!  Corner, corner, who has the corner?  I do and eight of them to boot!  The corner from the Austrian Collection is gorgeous and makes such a beautiful card too.  So simple, cut four of them and glue them to a piece of pale lavender card.  Cut a smaller pale lavender square, cut four more corners out of coconut white card, glue them into the corners so that each of the corners overlaps, creating a different pattern. Cut a wider white mat for it and add decorative white PVA glue dots to the edge after mounting the entire piece in a diamond fashion.   Out of the pale lavender card, cut the decorative middle die from my new Salzburg die and mount on to foam in the centre of the card.  Stamp your sentiment and cut it out with the smallest die in that set.  Ink it with Shaded Lilac distress ink before removing it from the die and mount in the centre of your focal element.  I added a pierced white mat layer before finishing with a thin lavender mat and a final white mat layer.  This is definitely a case of a card where the dies do all the work, but they do it so beautifully, don't they!  The finished dimension are 6 3/4" x 6 3/4" in size.
  If you are interested in any of the pictures from the roadtrip, please check Julia's blog (InkyFingerzone.blogspot.co.uk) this week as she was the photographer  for our fabulous adventure!
All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue and all crafters.
What a beautiful card, what a whirlwind of a weekend, think I managed to keep up with most of it.
Back home again now, hoping life will get back to normal now.
Thank you ladies for all your support over the past eight week, it all helped!

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. Gorgeous card, I love the lilac and white. This Austrian corner is beautiful, it works perfectly with the others. Just want to say again sue, thank you for this wonderful second collection of dies and all of the gorgeous cards. Have a great day today : )
Sending Pam and Robbie my usual daily hugs to you both : )
Norah, wonder if you will be able to sit still long enough to read this, or if you are even looking before you set off? Will you be sat outside Craftworld waiting for it to open so that you can get a front row seat to see Sue? I sincerely wish you a fantastic day : )I am sure your hills are perfect for you today : )
June, I use my piercing ruler to lightly mark out where I want my dots to go, it helps me to get them a lot straighter and evenly spaced than just doing them freehand : )
Sending hugs to Sue, my very special friends and all that are in need, no matter why. It's going to be a bit hotter today with only a little mizzle down here in Devon. We are going up on Dartmoor to soak up the fabulous views and the silence : )) Take care.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

Morning Sue
Today's gift is so so elegant and gentle. Your dies are definitely the showpiece!!
I just know you are going to muddy my waters as to which to buy now aren't you?
I love the colour scheme - lavender is one of my all time favourite colours. Reminds me of warm summer evenings sat outside with the aroma of soft lavender and bees just before they finish for the day.
Have a wonderful day in Glasgow meeting some of my Wilsonette Sisters.

Norah - Now you may not read this before setting off to meet Sue but just take it steady; no running; jumping or skipping; just have a wonderful day. Report back tomorrow please.

Sandra - hope you're not too tired and suffering from doing too much yesterday - Families and family memories are so so important and must always be treasured. Time passes by far too quickly.

HELP PLEASE - I seem to think that someone not so long ago mentioned that their emboss folders wouldn't go through the eboss machine. Can anyone please tell me the trick needed. I've tried a Creative Expressions one and it will not go through. I know that one of my Wilsonette sisters came up with a solution but for the life of me cannot remember who.

Hope you are all OK and having a day of R&R today after our wonderful week with Sue and her fantastic launch.
Take care everyone and see you tomorrow.
Janet x

Sheila Lampard said...

Morning Sue
What a fantastic card with the dies doing it all!!
A must try with the ones I have!!

Enjoy your day in Craftworld.

Lindsay Martin said...

Sue this is so gorgeous, delicate and stunning, not sure how many words I can use to describe the beautiful card today. You really have designed the most stunning dies for us all to use.
Pam you and Robbie get my daily thoughts.
Gail, huge hug for you I know I haven't been about much recently but had t stopped thinking of you and I'm so sorry it has not gone well.
Janet, I use my plates in the following order in the ebosser C B folder with paper, embossing mat, magnetic mat, D. It's the only way mine will give me a good all over emboss, I sandwich them all in the middle or my B plate starts to warp! Hope this helps.
Norah, now sit down relax, I'm so jealous of you have a fantastic day and give Sue a hug from me, poor Sue will have you hanging on her all day receiving all the hugs we are asking you to send for us, lol, enjoy your day though you deserve it Norah as you bring so much to all of us.
Big gentle hugs to all my Wilsonette friends, Jean, Lynne and the gorgeous two some, Tina, Steph, Cameeli, Tandy, P Wales, Tres, Julie and Lee, Mrs B (say hi to the ponies on Dartmoor, as I have four rescue Dartmoor Hill Ponies) and everyone else whose names have flown from my mind as always, and as always I knw as soon as I publish this your names will be right at the front of my mind so accept my useless excuse for a memory xxx

Hi Sue,
Fabulous card, I love it. EVERYTHING about it, lavender and white is so elegant.
And best of all is that I'll have these dies once I have collected them from the post office - wasn't in when the postie called.
I have a birthday card to make for a friend who likes greens and yellows - they'll go perfect in white with either of those colours, too.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes. What a wonderful weekend and Monday madness you gave us Sue, thank you.

You have welcomed Tuesday with a delicate delight that's for sure. The lavender card peeping through shows the corner dies off a treat. As you said, the dies do ALL the work, although it takes a wonderful talanted crafty brain to think of the design to start with, and that's my problem, I have no crafty imagination !
Have a safe trip up North.

Lancashire Steph, thanks for that what a lovely thought! I am planning to go Wed or Thurs this week as my little girl in kids club and work haven't needed me so far this week so am having a little me time and a little treat going to visit the shop and have a good browse. Can't wait ...... Hope you are able to treat yourself. I have some amazing justifications for why I need just one more die set .......

Thanks again xxx

Hi Sue, fantastic use of corner dies. Love the soft lavender card. Overall a card anyone would be proud to have. Have a great day in Glasgow. Lol lynne m x x x


Well the terrible twosome are firing on all cylinders. I couldn't understand why both of them kept putting their heads through the flowers in the first border in the back garden and growling softly. At last!!! found Harry the missing tunnel cleverly disguised with leaves ( Tilly has now been banned from watching telly) have managed to foil the escape plan which I believe has had my two speaking to the westie next door to get all the poochies in the street helping to dig down in their own gardens to join up with my menaces tunnel aiming for the green at the end of the houses.
Hubby has alot to answer for with his constant watching of the Great Escape . Needless to say mighty menaces are now sulking in the lounge with their backs to me. Knowing what hollow legs they have the sulks are sure to stop by lunchtime. I don't think I will ever be able to turn them into proper ladies!!!!

Norah - you go girl and have a great day - you so deserve it x x x

June, Lindsay, Karen, Lynda, Pam, Tres, Alison, Steph , Barbara n Ben, Mrs B , Angela -
lol and gentle hugs from poochies

To all "Wilsonettes " may the sun shine from within lol x x x x

Hi Sue,
You did make me smile this morning! No I don't have that corner as yet but it's on the list! I , like, Brenda will give the card a try with the Spanish corner and see if that works! Trouble is I really liked all the dies! Today's card is lovely - as you say the dies do all the work but you have to have the ideas in the first place! Thanks for dies + ideas = success!
Norah - hope you having the best day - you deserve it! Janet said "no running , jumping or skipping - good advice - no cartwheels either!! Sending hugs x
Gail pleased you back home safely. What a tough time you've had - eight weeks and counting. Sending love to you too.
In all the mayhem of the last few days if I've missed any Annniversaries or Birthdays. sorry!
Love to all, friends on the blog!
Have a great day - all the ladies going to meet Sue! Love to Sue and Julia too!
Myra

Good Morning Sue and to all of your flock.
You have used my favourite colour. I can seem to get enough lilac at the moment. Such a beautiful elegant card. The bling is stunning. I love it. The postman has just bought me two of your new beautiful dies. I am the very proud owner of Vienna and Burgundy. I'm one happy girl.
Hope you have a fabulous day whatever 6th are all doing.
Love and hugs
Jo xx

Cazzie D said...

Another pretty delicate card. Love the subtle glimps of bling.

MRS B - great tip for the glue pearls don't know why I didn't think of that!

So jealous that I can't go to Sue's demos - too far away. Sue can you do something near your home town Oxon/Berks?

Hope this blog make sense. Having my annual eye test at hospital. They've dialated my eyes so I can't really see what im typing! I have to keep a regular check on my eyes. I was glassed in my left eye 12 years ago and lost my sight in that eye then.

Sue Parish said...

Such a pretty card - and my favourite colours too. Would like the Austrians but can't have everything so will try something similar with the lovely French ones when they arrive. My Itty Bitty Classic Bows had arrived from Icon yesterday, so last nightI couldn't go to bed without trying them out. Oh my word, they make such exquisite little bows! The detail! I examined them again in daylight this morning and tried to imagine how long it would have taken to do by hand - getting the embossed lines and all the tiny pricking perfect !!! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Sue, I'm so thrilled to bits with these dies(in case you hadn't guessed!) Sue xx

Hellooooo Sue and the Wilsonettes! Gorgeous card Sue and made using corners. I love lavender, it's such a calming colour and so lovely with white.
