Faux Porcelain Flowers

Hello my crafty friends!  This card has loads of shape changes in the dies used and shows you how to achieve a porcelain look for your flowers to give your cards and projects an extra head turning look!  I think you will really like it!

Buy from Joanna Sheen

The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue
What a truly stunning card this morning I love the colours and the layout you've used. The embossing board is gorgeous and on my 'I need' list. It's so clever how you've changed the shape of the dies, and the beads on the stick pins are beautiful.
Cheryl I'm so pleased that your radiotherapy sessions are finished sending you a hug.

Another gorgeous card! Once Christmas stuff is packed away, I must start playing with the idea of cutting die cut mats in half.

Hello Sue, great video and wow this card is beautiful, the dies give it such a lacy and filigree look, love the way you cut the panels up to make different shapes. The porcelain flower is lovely. Have a great day. Bx

Hi Sue. A beautiful card today. It somehow reminds me of a Victorian ladies basque. But then you don't get many Victorian mens basques do you!!!
Love all of the layering you have done, easy but effective. Thank you for all of the tips that you share too.
Norah and Sam, thinking of you both.
Cheryl, a special hug for you today : )
Sending my daily hugs to everyone. Take care.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
what a treat to start this horrible rainy morning. A cup of coffee in your wonderful craft room and a demo from you. Who could ask for more.
I love love love today's gift. Your colours are so gentle and beautiful. I still grit my teeth when I see you cut your dies and I'm still not comfortable doing this but your gifts always look superb when you do it. I would really love this to drop through my letterbox any day.

Still have to finish off my K&N gifts as I didn't touch them yesterday. Tried to do some embroidery and that didn't go well so today I really must pull my socks up and get something done.

To anyone under the weather hoping you feel better soon. To all please take care particularly when out and about and everyone stay safe. See you tomorrow.

Maureen Killen said...

Good morning Sue and all the ladies.
This is so pretty Sue, and I love the idea of making the flowers look like porcelain, without the worry of them breaking. Since being shown by you how to change the shape of die cuts, I do cut them and it certainly widens the choice of shapes, thank you.
Cheryl - pleased for you that you've finished your treatment, enjoy Christmas!
Love to all, hope those who've been missing on the blog are ok xx

Good morning Sue & Friends,,
Sue I love today's card, both the style and the colour, that embossing folder gas to be at the top of my list, I LOVE it!
Thanks so much my dear friend Sue, for your continued Daily inspiration xxx
Cheryl, I am so genuinely thrilled that that was your last radiotherapy session, I wish foe nothing more from Santa than your full and speedy recovery my lovely friend! Xxxx
Steph, I so hope that you are at the end of your huge list of makes, think of the money! Stay warm and cosy, you sound a little like my daughter with your frustrating fingers and toes, she was diagnosed with Reynauds, some time ago now, boy do her fingers/toes look painful at times, I have tried to give her all the physical things like proper warm sheepskin boots etc but she still suffers, strangely, even on warm days, which she finds frustrating working at Lloyds bank, (you have nowhere to hide) I hope that you are almost done with your cards orders so that you can sit back and relax, xxxx
Sam Smithard &Lovely Norah, I hope you both are well enough to enjoy Christmas with your loved ones! Hugs to you both, hurry back to us, we miss your stories xxx
June, how very lucky you are, having your breakfast made for you whilst you catch up on your blogs , your husband sounds wonderful xxxxxx
Well I must go and get moving, I have to sit and make some last minute lists, of all the 'to do's' but first I think I will have a cuppa and watch today's video, thanks again Sue!
Huge crafty hugs,

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Absolutely stunning and beautiful. Really love every element of this. I think the faux porcelain flowers are gorgeous.
I got a good report from hospital yesterday, they had a really good look at the X-ray to ensure that there was no sign of a fracture in / around the implant following my horrendous fall earlier in the year if you remember. Thankfully there isn't, and the tenderness under my knee is just soft tissue damage and bruising from the fall that will heal completely in time. I was very relieved about this I can tell you. Just got to go back next December. Thanks for all your concerns and good luck messages. Anne glad Iain is doing well. Cheryl, so pleased that you have finished your treatment. Now please take it nice and steady. Norah , Lynne and Sam hope you are all ok. Love to everyone, Alison xxx
Ps got tree up too! Only problem is now one of the strings of lights has died!

Stunning card love the lacquer on the flowers.
Sending out an SOS I hope you don't mind Sue, if anyone lives in the Bristol area do you know any contacts for my daughter to be able to find a place to live ASAP in a nice area. The Estate agents do not have much on their books at this time of year and my daughter can't start her new job without accommodation in place. Thank you Warm hugs

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue and all lovely Wilsonettes. What a stunningly beautiful card you have given us today, it really cheers up our 12th day of constant rain/hail !
You have used one of my most favourite pastel colour's so much so I rarely use it, how selfish I must be to keep card to look at LOL !
Today it would be easier to say where I dont hurt, and my oramorph will be my best friend unfortunatly ! 7 cards ordered, 2 to go - talk about working flat out every day since Monday, then concentrating on the little things that may sell Sunday such as the last minute tags etc... But as all our crafty friends know, we dont just 'do' gift tags, we make those that cant be found in shops, those made with care, beauty and love (and its all down to the wonderful products our dear friend Sue bring to us)
I have the final two cards to make which are New Year cards (thanks Barbie for helping me out) not looked properly inside your tin yet (sorry) !
So its a day of completing the order, more work on market things, printing verses for said cards, and a list I just cant look at yet until after Sunday which entails my special cards ! Im sooo tired.
I shouldnt grumble considering our lovely Cheryl has the only reason to feel drained.. Sorry Cheryl. Im thrilled your treatment is over, so listen to your body and rest when it tells you too. Glad our Sam is feeling better, how we miss our friends and how we are missing them still.
Must make a start now.
Sending very special hugs to all our friends that hurt for whatever reason.
Love you.
Lancashire Steph xx

Hi Sue. WOW, WOW, WOW !! Fab video and such a gorgeous card today !! You have used the Aqua card. Just like Steph, it is one of my favourite colours in the foundations range. I have this background EF Yay !! I just really NEED these dies now !! (They are all on my Christmas wish list !!) The Porcelain Flowers look fab Sue and your messy bow and stick pins are beautiful. I love the card ideas you have created by cutting up the dies and using them in different ways. Your dies are so versatile Sue but I usually don't realise until I see the kinds of things you make with them !! Thanks for sharing this fab card today Sue. You are so inspiring !!
Sending lots of love and hugs to you and your family today love from Tres x x x

To Cheryl, I am so glad you have finished your hospital treatment. Please take care, get plenty of rest and I hope you have a lovely Christmas. Sending you lots of love and special hugs today from Tres x x x

To all the Wonderful Wilsonettes, I hope everyone has a lovely day today. Sending lots of love to you all from Tres x x x

Saba said...

Hi Sue,
Really enjoyed this video, all the trimming of the die cuts and what you did with them really shows how versatile your amazing dies are. Messy bow and daisies- fabulous and the embossing folder is top of my wish list, I love it.
Your stick pins are amazing, as someone commented a few days ago, it would be brilliant if you considered doing a "Sue Wilson" stick pin kit!!!
Your finished card was quite simply beautiful.

Cheryl so glad your radiotherapy is now behind you, rest and get strong now.
Steph your comment yesterday made me chuckle, I had a mental picture of you covered with those pesky black bits, and. your poor carpet again. Sorry I shouldn't laugh but you obviously saw the funny side too so I am not laughing at you, rather with you. You sound like you deserve a rest as well so take care of yourself. So sorry you are in pain.
Hugs for all
