For A Special Friend

Good Morning all!  A beautiful New York collection card to get you in the mood for today's shows I hope!  The shows start at 9am this morning on C & C and I have a great new technique for the very first demo!  If you aren't in the UK, you can watch them online at  The times listed are for the live shows in the UK time zone though.  I started this card by cutting the outer die in the Times Square out of milk card. I cut the Union die out of the centre of it and used the smaller die to cut the centre out of it.   I matted the square on to Baby blue card and reinserted the Union Square back into it flush with the backing card.  I cut a second Union Square out of milk card and cut the inside square out of it as well.  I turned it to a diamond shape and added mounting foam to raise it over the square below. I stamped a sentiment and embossed it in gold.  Using the decorative frames from the Italian Collection, I cut a round frame for my sentiment.  I gave it a matching blue backing to the edge and recessed the sentiment into it.  The corners were then decorated with the centre of the Union Square die which I nipped into four pieces.  I added them in the corners with mounting foam.  I completed the card with a pierced paper edge on a milk coloured mat, then a thin Baby Blue card mat and a final milk mat.  The finished dimensions are 7" x 7" in size.

The winner of this week's Wednesday Card giveaway is:

Granny Sue!!!

Congratulations!  Please email me at to confirm your address and claim your prize.  All for now, Sue x

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
Now this is why we need to see you demo, because I have these dies and didn't realise the corners came from the Union Square die. I love everything about today's card it's beautiful and right up my street. The colours are very pretty, although I very often make cards blue and white, I've never tried blue and cream.
Looking forward to your shows fingers crossed you'll get your demo's in.
Hugs x

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue and Hi to all that visit this Saturday. Sue - lovin bloglovin and can highly reccommend it to those that have not yet joined, its so great having all Sue's cards together no more searching for that favourite card : )
Oooooo, stunning. The colour's look so bright and fresh, the lighter the card, the more it show's the beauty and elegance of your new die's its a beautiful start to our weekend.
Imagin all our little Wilsonette faces watching your every move today Sue, all those busy little fingers tapping away in hopes our emails are read out, our whooops of delight when we hear friends name, and the amount of " let Sue demo and shush" being screamed at the yapping presenter's lol - so have some really good show's today Sue and enjoy yourself, have that vision in your mind of Wilsonette World coming to a stand still whilst we do what we love doing which is watching your wonderful works of art come to life.
Who know's you may even get to eat pizza again : )
Congrats to Nanna enjoy your W. O. W
and to all that visit I send love n hugs.

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. Wow, this is a really stunning card, how gorgeous, it makes me think of those fantastic ceilings that you see in some old stately homes, or other grand buildings. The baby blue/milk card is beautiful....oooh, I just love everything about this card : ))
I hope you have fun today Sue and enjoy yourself at C&C. I am all ready to watch the shows, recorder set, family warned that I am not to be disturbed etc (maybe I should get one of those DO NOT DISTURB hotel signs to put on the door as a reminder: ))
CraftySuetoo, thank you for reminding me about Bloglovin : ) I finally remembered to click on the Bloglovin button at the bottom of todays card after reading your post. It is so easy, I was worried I may have to join Facebook (I am not a lover) but you don't have to. Once you have confirmed the email they send you get ALL OF SUE'S CARDS on one page, just keep scrolling and they keep appearing...wonderful, it is fantastic. I wish I had done it ages ago : ))
Sending my daily hugs to everyone. Take care.

Mrs B said...

Ecco of Sheffield said...

Morning Sue
Today's gift is very elegant and I can envisage it on the wall of a very 'posh' Edwardian salon. Your colours really suit your wonderful dies. I have your Times Square and am hoping that today I might be able to add another square to my collection so it's fingers crossed.
The recorder is set for all your programes today and tomorrow so I will not miss one moment of the week-end. I know you'll have sell outs but hopefully not before I can purchase. (that sounds really selfish sorry).

Congratulations to this week's give away. You are one very lucky lady.
I've logged onto Bloglovin and it's wonderful to see all your art all together making it so easy to refer back when needed.

Have to go now and get the necessary shopping done and fingers crossed I can see your shows at lunchtime. I'll say good luck and hope you're presenter has some sense to let you craft. After all that's what we want to see.

To all in pain or suffering I hope your day gets better. To everyone please take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

CHERYL Brown said...

Such a stunning card Sue, its fantastic.Great play with the dies.
AND oh my goodness, the stick pins! Gorgeous!!! We've all been trying to guess what your surprize could be and now we know. How delightful to get a collection up.
I have started to follow using your BLOGLOVIN link. I must say it was so easy to do and what struck me was the beauty of having all your cards in one place. I can now refer to past ones that I forget to print off and there they are!!! I don't need to trawl through all my emails anymore looking for the 'How to make' info.
Well done Sue.
Enjoy your shows, I'm sure there are going to be lots of sell-outs. You deserve every bit of success for all the hard work it must take to get to the finished product.
Gurt (((((((hugs))))))) to everyone and congratulations to Granny Sue for winning the Wednesday draw. A work of art to treasure.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and the fabulous Wilsonettes,
This is such a pretty card Sue and really shows up it's beauty in the milk coloured card against the baby blue which is scrumptious looking. I am just starting to play with my New York collection and starting to find out some of its joys. Love the card Sue as it shows everything off beautifully, thank you. Hope you have a great weekend at C&C that is if you last that long as us Wilsonettes know exactly what happens in your shows, they go like that German shampoo, wheeee and vroom right out the door faster than a F1 car gets of it's starting blocks. Have a wonderful time dear friend.
Well as you can see the bad penny is back after Thursday funeral,
car escapades, and bringing on the migraine from hell and so tired. Had to laugh at the Honda Assist lassie who after me telling her where i was stuck namely at the funeral palour doors telling me to get out the car and walk to safety. Well it is just me or how more safe could i get than at the funeral palour? I have a seriously warped sense of humour that definitely comes from my parents as both had mad senses of humour that anyone not knowing them would be thinking all sorts and to be honest i couldn't tell you who was the worst offender for it, mum or dad as both were level pegging on that score. Yesterday i was just so weak after the day before's escapades that i slept nearly all day, had a drink and slept again. This not having the strength to do things, normal everyday things i am finding really hard to deal with but i'm back not fitting fit but better than i was.
Well done Granny Sue on winning this weeks WOW. Just wait until it arrives as i was so excited when i won my one and it looks down on me from the top of my bookcase in the diningroom at me crafting and making a muck up, but it gives me the inspiration to go on and keep trying.
Thanks Mrs B for the bloglovein info as i didn't want to sign up either to a thingy website. I go on face book rarely because i am not into telling everyone that i am up, i have moved off my chair, etc. For keeping in contact with people you haven't seen in a long time or meeting up with old friends to have a conversation with them in private messaging it is great and that i use now and again but not all the time like some people seem to do to announce to everyone that they have sneezed, not me.
IreneM, a very happy birthday to your darling daughter. I hope you have a great day with her.
Well i am away to try and get on as i have loads of bags of clothes just waiting to go to the women's refuge and the charity shop so i will say bye for the now and have my basket overflowing here of hugs of every size and shape just waiting to be shared. Have a great Sue day everyone,
love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Myra said...

Hi Sue,
Despite my best efforts missed the 9am Show live but it is recorded so will watch later. Definitely a Do not disturb sign needed for the noon show!
Today's card is a really gorgeous one! Just love the colours and I've pinned it!
Also joined Bloglovin as I understand this will be beneficial to you as well as us! So it's nice to give you something back. First benefit I noticed today was that my email regarding your new pot came through just after 6 30 am. Previously these emails didn't come to me until after 11am. In fact I usually by- passed them but this is a great system! I don't do Facebook either - just signed up for email but then it's easy to pin .
Hope the Show went well! Will be ready and waiting for the next one!
Congratulations Nanna Sue!
Hope thei pins sell out!
Lots of love
Myra xx

Caught the second half of the first show today. Love the paper grouting technique and will have to give a go. I have a stash of beads I use for my lace bobbins so will have go at the stick pins as well.
Lovely card today, Sue.

I love the 3D shaped corner pieces! Will miss the shows today as it's my 28th wedding anniversary. xx

Ruth Kidd said...

Hi SUe, what a great 9am show with Nigel. Love the stick pins, and I hope that other retailers will have them in smaller packs.
The grouting technique is great - I can see why it was worth getting up in the middle of the night to try that out!
Have a good day everyone and enjoy the rest of the shows.

Wheely Bad said...

Hi Sue

Stunning cards today and yesterday. Just watched your midday show, got it recorded too, hoping we'll be back by 6 as we both got eye tests this afternoon at 4:30pm so maybe not the day for a splitting headache! Was made better by buying the multibuy with the border and tags and the background on its own, thank you flexi, thank you renewal voucher :-)

No comment yesterday as Mr W and I popped out to pick up my new printer and when we got home I fell asleep, waking up just to eat tea then back to sleep again! Clearly not used to all the fresh air!

Congratulations Granny Sue, enjoy your card!

Hugs to everyone, have a lovely weekend xxx

Love the soft colours of this card. Watched the show this morning and the versatility of the New York dies is outstanding. So glad I taped the show to watch again to see how you cut in to all the die-cuts to alter the shapes.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a very pretty card but just a touch busy for me. Maybe I am just jealous as I don't have these dies - yet lol!

Enjoyed your first two shows, the texture paste demo was inspired. So many lovely samples too, I look forward to seeing them appear on the blog.

Izzy - I loved your handbags and the butterfly, you are a very talented lady.

Kate's cards - Happy Anniversary, hope you have a lovely day.

Granny Sue - Congratulations on being the Wednesday Winner and enjoy your celebratory glass of something later.

Off now to join Bloglovin.

June Reynolds said...

Afternoon Sue, Beautiful card, going to try this one too. Enjoying your shows. Congrats to Granny Sue. Recorder set for both days. Joined Bloglovin too, its great! Bye for now, Junex (Cumbria)

Myra said...

Hi Sue,
Haven't seen the first show as yet but the second was really inspiring.
Izzy - hope you will read this - your bags are gorgeous .
They were just so different and make us think of other ways to use our dies. Thank you!
I loved the butterfly too! Ingenious !
The beads are gorgeous and it is very hard to find teardrop shapes in different colours. Just loved the opaque ones. Might be an idea for two or three ladies to join forces for that set.
Looking forward to the next show! I did send an email but I think if they read mine out I'd collapse with the shock of it! Sue, your card samples were gorgeous!
Love to all,
Myra xxxx

Angela Wade said...

Hi, Sue and fellow Wilsonettes.
I've watched and recorded the two shows so far. Will have to resort to the Internet for the 6pm show, which I can't record :-(
Are the beads your surprise, Sue ?

Love todays card !!! These are the two NY Squares I already have, so must give this a go ! Loved seeing you demo yesterday's gorgeous card on the first show !

Congratulations to Granny Sue on winning Sue's card :- )

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and the rest of Sue's shows, everyone.

Hugs to all, especially those who're unwell / in pain.

Angela in partially sunny S. Wales Xx
(lots of rain forecast for tomorrow :-( :-( )

Angela Wade said...

Hi, Myra, I emailed in to Sue's last shows, but never got read out. I've emailed into other shows on C&C without success too. Wish I knew the secret !!

Izzy, I thought your bags were amazingly stunning too !!
