Hello My Friend

Hello bloggers!  From the other end of the spectrum, same die as yesterday, but a completely different look this time!  I cut the French Background out of coconut white card and left a wide border.  I added mounting foam to the back and matted it on to another piece of white card for a tone on tone look.  Out of lilac card (I know it looks  blue in the pic), I cut a flower using the Delicate Daisies open petal die set and used several of the sizes to layer up to create a pretty floral element.  I used the Mosaic Leaves and cut several of them to add around my flower.  I couldn't find any green card that I liked so I inked up some white card with Forest Moss Distress ink, then cut the leaves out of it.  I stamped my sentiment on to vellum using a Clear Perfect Medium pad and heat embossed it with white powder.  I cut it into a strip and tucked the end under my flower.  I used a few of the small butterflies from the Magical Butterfly die set to add around the card (truth be told, they were covering a few smudges!)  I added Iced Snow to the wings and small  3mm pearls to the body.  I finished the card with a white pierced mat then a larger solid white mat.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x 8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Who would have thought that was the same die as yesterday? Very pretty, Sue, and love the new mosaic leaves. The open petal flower is so lovely too. We should all be happy now!!

Muriel Kelly said...

Hi Sue

Who would believe you could get two such different cards from one die, but that is what is so good about your dies, their versatility. Beautiful card again today,
Cant wait to see the new collection

June said...

Morning Sue, Pam and all Wilsonettes what a lovely fresh and bright card to welcome in this damp and dull Monday. I love that you have used the same die as yesterday and don't worry Sue I won't tell anyone about the smudges being hidden by the butterflies, we all do it hehe!!!

Congratulations to all the winners announced yesterday. I was at the NEC all day and didn't get a chance to go onto the website to comment.

Sue you should have seen your dies fling out the window on all the stands, they were so, so popular - just as we all know and love.

Have a great Monday everyone, stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs June Smith xxx

Wow, that blue color is such a nice touch. And you can easily just pick any

all the details.


Sandy G said...

Hi Sue
Gorgeous card. I love this background die. Please could you make this one in a square? Have seen your new square dies. Fabulous! I hope. Joanna gets them in soon. Thanks for sharing. Please please please could you get rid of the pesky robot thingy!
Hugs all round.

Gail said...

Fabulous card - I love the flower embellishment

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
What a difference a day makes! It just shows how versatile your beautiful dies are. Today's gift is just simply gorgeous. White/White with just a hint of lilac for the flower an how to make anyone smile when they receive such a gift. Thank you for starting my week off so beautifully.

Sandra - hope the girls footy was a success and that if you went you were well and truly wrapped for warmth.

As most of you say fireworks should only be set off by controlled organisations. I see far too much of the suffering caused by them via my daughter and all the little furry friends she has to deal with after.

As I'm here in France I shall be remembering my loved ones tomorrow as they always use the actual 11.11 for their ceremonies. I always bring a poppy with me as they don't have them over hear.

Well it's the start of my last week here - where has the last five weeks gone! Still have much to do so on a very very damp and dull morning I shall get a 'wriggle' on and move! (not a pretty site! lol).

To all who have an occasion to celebrate hope your day goes well. To all under the weather hope you feel better soon. To all take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

heather harrison said...

Morning Sue. Wow! What a difference a different coloured card can make. I love the white on white it always looks so delicate. The pop of colour finishes it of perfectly. Thank you Sue again. Have a nice day. Hugs Heather.x

carol edwards said...

Hi Sue and everybody, such a beautiful card and looks lovely in white. I have the flower dies now but think I really need to get this French die. X

Anonymous said...

Hi Sue and all Particraft friends hope you all slept well.
A beautiful fresh start to the week. White always looks so clean and pure, but with the addition of fresh 'happy' colour's its a card to brighten anyone's day. Your daisy dies are so cute Sue, Im wondering if they would look out of character on my festive cards lol as I would add those beauties to any cards I can (shame men feel 'uncomfortable' with flowers on their cards) well, some men.
Im doing really well not taking a peek at your new dies that are being shown on other websites, I just want to wait until you launch them yourself, and if I lose out by a sell out then I can always order from Barbie and my little craft heaven - keeping fingers crossed there is a new square die to replace the retired expensive SB die as I adore the large square frame you add to your cards, they frame focal points so brilliantly.
Well that's me done - before I go I want to welcome TOB back home after too long away from us, so lovely to see your comment again Theresa : )
Pam - I hope each day feels a little less dark for you.
To our friends that have woken in pain both in body and mind, my comfort basket is full of comforting hugs, take as many as you need (if only they could be real hugs)
To anyone celebrating today, have a wonderful day full of happiness and laughter.
We really need our missing Wilsonettes to join us again, its not the same without your funny tales or tails, please hurry home.
It would be SO lovely to see the number's go up to over 200 everyday not just one day a week.
Have a lovely day Sue whatever your day brings, and to you all - hope your day is as happy and productive as it can be.
Love you.

Morning Sue. How different can two cards look using the same die. This is a beauty. All clean and crisp with just a hint of colour. I see you are teasing us with one of your new dies. Cant wait to see what you have done when you show your new samples. Good Luck for the new launch.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and Wilsonette friends,
Oh how pretty the French background looks when all cut out of white and added to the white built up card. The touch of colour of the blue daisy and green leaves looks so lovely. Thank you Sue for another beautiful card.
What a twit i am, as it wasn't until i was actually up seeing Jim yesterday and putting his crosses down that i actually realised what i had done. I have been buying 2 crosses for so many years now, 1 for me and 1 for mum and dad to put down that i forgot this year that i only needed one. OH was watching the parade at the cenotaph on the television which surprised me to start with and then for him to actually shut up and go into thought for the 2minute silence, i was amazed as it the first time in all our years of marriage that i have seen him do it.
Well someone has pinched my hills today as they are nowhere to be seen, so i think today is a stay at home day in front of the fire. A pair of bootees to go and that is 4 sets made up for wee boys so far. With all the wee boys that have been born this past wee while i have run out, plenty of wee girls outfits but had no wee boys left. At least i can get a few different things made up with my stock of wool thus reducing the wool mountain and second making up some useful wee clothes.
Sending hugs to all my Angels both on blog and not at the moment. You are missed girls and i hope that you are feeling better day by day. It is so nice to read of all that went to the NEC and so glad that you all had such a great time even if it was tiring. Take care everyone,
Love and crafty hugs

Hi Sue - so pleased to see another card with my favourite French die. This one is so pretty and the daisies and butterfly just add to the delicacy of it. Best wishes

Sue from Wiltshire said...

Such a beautiful dye. Trouble is they are all beautiful but I, and many others I am sure, can't have them all.
This dye reminds me of a spiders web.
It just shows how you can change the colours and you have another stunning card. Love it.

Chris Curry said...

What a contrast. I really like the delicacy of this one. I love the daisies and use them a lot. Thank you Sue.

Another lovely card today and such a clever way to hide smudges!
I love the all-white with accent of colour, for a less dramatic look (but NOTHING beats black teamed with gold/red/emerald green/turquoisy blue).

Hi Sue, love today's card - so delicate and perfect inspiration for my daughter-in-law's birthday at the end of the month! I have many floral dies but I have to give in to my wish for your delicate daisies after this particular card!!! Thanks for the great tip of inking a piece of card to get the colour we need - I must do that instead of searching through my stash, it would be much quicker!!!

Hugs, Belinda. X

Just love this French background die, but really struggle to get it to cut out entirely. Have tried various ways, and with release paper etc, but there's still a section that doesn't cut properly,so have butterflies over that bit,! Will try again with maybe a thinner card. Your design is fabulous x x x

Your card today is beautiful Sue. I love the French background die, it is fab. Your new Mosaic leaves look great !! I can't wait to see all your new dies in action. I love the Delicate Daisy dies you have used on todays card. I got the open petal ones for my Birthday which I have used recently on a card I made. They are Sooo very pretty and I really love them. Now I want to get the complete petal dies to go with them. I think they will have to go on my Christmas wish list. Lovely sentiment, and your little butterflies look so cute !! They are on my wish list to !! A truly beautiful card today Sue. Thank you for sharing it.

Sam Smithard said...

Hi Sue,
Another Late Comment From Me, I've Been Christmas Shopping Today I've Nearly Finished My Shopping, Then They'll Just Need Wrapping But At present I Can't Find Any Wrapping Paper I Like, I Know It's Silly As It Just Gets Wripped Off But I Like My Gifts To Look Nice With A Great Big Bow!
Well Today's Card Just As Stunning As Yesterday's, I Loved The Black And Now Using The Same Stunning French Background Die But Today In The White, Very Beautiful So Just By Changing The Colour Pallete We Get A Different Look.
I Love The White On White With Just A Touch Of Colour From Your Leaves And Delicate Daises (I've Just Used This Same Die On A Birthday Card) I Love The Open Daisy Its So Pretty And Extremely Delicate, Hence The Name Delicate Daises. Those Stunning Leaves Great Idea Using Distress Ink To Get Colour Of Choice, I Love Your Beautiful Sentiment Heat Embossed In White On Vellum It Looks Amazing.
So From Yesterday's Awesome Black Card With A Touch Of Colour, To Today's Awesome White Card With A Touch Of Colour, I Personally Believe What Ever Colour Pallette You Choose Using One Of Sue's Dies Will Turn Out To Be Terrific.
Sue Thank You For Your Truly Beautiful, Stunning, Exquisite Cards Whatever The Colourway You Work So Hard To Bring Us Fabulous Cards And Everyone Single Card Is Fabulous.
Sue Thank You For Sharing Your Terrific Cards With Us, Thank You For Your Extremely Hard Work, You Are One Extremely Talented Lady, Who Inspires Me Every Single Day, Thank You For The Great Photography Shots, Great For My Pinterest Folder For Your Cards I've Now Got Nearly 6,000 Followers Of Your Cards Alone Which Changes All The Time, I Place All The Different Shots Taken At Different Angles In My Folder, As You See So Much That You May Have Missed First Time Around.

I thought initially you had embossed the die, it was an optical illusion but I loved it, really made me digest the card! Thank you for giving me some ideas with my die. I have been chopping into it but I love the examples you have made.

Hi Sue, love this card I want to purchase the dasiy dies but I want to get both dies. I am having a hard time getting them in stock together any suggestions? Thanks Sue

This card is lovely. Much more my cup of tea with the French backgound die in white. The open petal daisies are so pretty and oh I want the new leaves die.

Dorothy, try Joanna Sheen for the daisies.

As usual Sue, so original and a real wow card. Using a limited colour pallet and a bit of sparkle ads to the elegance. Your demonstrations are so relaxing and easy to follow together with your lovely speaking voice - just my favourite card craft demonstrator.
