Many Thanks

Hello my crafty friends!  How about a quick sneak peek for my shows starting Saturday morning?  We will be featuring my New York Collection and the Gemini dies.  They have also brought back the Finishing Touches and the Dainty Frames in case you missed them two weeks ago.  Today's card was started by embossing a piece of coconut white card with a new embossing folder called Braided Vines to give the background some texture.  Next I cut the Lyra Gemini die in silver card using all three pieces.  I cut a backing in white using just the two cutting edges.  I mounted it with foam to raise it for dimension and added it to the bottom of my embossed background.  A piece of silver card was then placed so it peeked out from underneath.  The focal element was created using the Herald Square die from the New York Collection.  I cut the largest die in the set out of silver card for a square.  I used the next largest die for a decorative white die cut, then glued the two together and cut them into a frame by using the smaller square die in the set.  I added mounting foam to the back to raise it for dimension.  I made a two tone Camellia flower using both the Complete and Open Petal styles of the Camellia die sets.  I stamped my sentiment (Bold Sentiments by Creative Expressions) and cut it into a strip and added my flower to the end surrounded by Mosaic Leaves cut in white.  I tucked in a bit of metallic silver cording from my stash to top off the floral element.  The card was then finished with a white pierced mat, a thin silver card mat and a final white mat in my usual style.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x  8 3/4"
 in size.

John Lockwood has shows on C & C today at 10am and 4pm with some great MDF products as well as other items (including a few of my dies!).  Don't forget to tune in!

Just a quick reminder, my shows are scheduled for 9am, 12 noon and 6pm on Saturday and
11am, 2pm and 7pm on Sunday.  I am particularly excited to be doing this set of shows as I have something new to share that I have been working on for absolutely forever!  It is finally available here and over the past few years, I have answered a lot of emails asking where to find this item.  While you can't see this new item on this card, it has made an appearance on the blog within the past two weeks (how is that for a tease!!)  and is likely to show up even more often now!!  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue and everyone. Beautiful card, love the Lyra edging. You are such as tease! Like many people I've had a look back at the the last 2 weeks posts and also thought what do we ask for? I've an idea but I'm not going to say it out loud, I don't want to spoil your big reveal tomorrow. Hope that things don't sell out in the first show so we get lots of "Sue time" over the weekend.

Morning Sue. Thank you another beautiful card. I shall be watching and recording your shows. Take care Kitty.

Anonymous said...

Morning Sue. You are a little tease. Can't think what it could be but then it will be a nice surprise tomorrow when you reveal it. Got the recorder ready to tape all the shows and i will be glued to the telly so i don't miss anything. Just hoping the presenters don't keep interupting when you are doing your demo's. Your card is beautiful and another new york focal front. I love this collection as there is so much you can do with all the different die frames. I think this would make a beautiful wedding,anniversary card. Have a great weekend on c&c and good luck with your big reveal.
Very icey today so take care everyone.
Best Wishes.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Goood Mooorning dear Sue and all Wilsonettes, what a stunning card to start our day. The silver card is just gorgeous and have a fair bit in my card stash. So glad you have shown us how lovely Foundation card is and recently ordered more colour's, the price maybe low but the quality is second to none just like the dies you've used today, its so elegant.
Still have loads to do to get sorted for market this Sunday, typical, will miss your first two show's but will record and watch your 7pm show (even if you DO have to sing and dance) bet your brilliant at that too lol. The more I push myself today, the more I csn sit and relax and watch your show's tomorrow. Hope they go well for you Sue. We will be there supporting you, your products, and squeeling at each name we hear and love so much.
Thank you for all you do here, and Im off to check out BLOGLOVIN as I believe like our new Paricraft lover PAT/M ELDER we can sign up to follow you and get email alerts, so Im off to get it sorted. I wont giveaway your tease lol.
If you have struggled to feel well this morning I send you heaps of cuddles hoping they will lift your spirits.
Keep smiling through Lynn M... Your husband will see the truth about your 8 paws one day !! Lol.
Love and hugs to all.

Hello Sue

Another lovely card. How do you do it, day after day. Sometimes I sit there for ages and nothing comes into my head!

I like what you have done with the Gemini die.


Sandra said...

Good morning Sue,
I think this has to be my favourite 'Lyra" card to date, I love everything about this card, the colour is pretty and the sentiments, it showcases the New York dies perfectly too! Sue I want to wish you every success Sue for your shows across this weekend, I know already that you and your products will be a sell out across the board! I can't wait for all of the inspiration that you will be bring too!
Now you really are teasing us Sue, I have had a little peek back through some cards to see if I could see anything, but no! This is going to have everyone buzzing with excitement today!
Thank you Sue for being you and for all you do! No other crafter gives so much to so many for so little in return! Hugest hugs Xxxxxxxxxx
Ladies I can guess what the chatter will be about today in the coffee shop! Any guesses on what Sue is bringing us? This blog is just so amazing, I don't know what I would do without it and all of you fellow Wilsonettes, such a kind, caring, supportive group!
Huge crafty hugs to all of you

Morning Sue, Pam and all Wilsonettes, what a tease you are Sue, I am so intrigued what can it be........I will be watching and taping the shows as I love to see all your work, I wished C&C did more demo's though. So you make sure you get an early night tonight Sue.

As to this card well I love it, I have been lucky enough to get the Lyra die so I am definitely going to try this one.

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

AnnetteM said...

What a beautiful card Sue! Even more frustration for me, as I can't get hold of the Camellia die! However, my cornflower set and beaded fanfare embossing board arrived yesterday, so I will be crafting all weekend, whilst watching you on C & C. What a lovely thought.
Have a great weekend.!

Good Morning, Sue and fellow Wilsonettes.
This is another lovely card. The Lyra Die is beautiful, and one that I have.
Seems I'll be able to get The New York Border collection this weekend :- )
I've already set the box to record all the Freeview shows!!!
And I've checked to see what's coming up on John's shows.

Congratulations, June (Smith) and Hubby on celebrating your Ruby Wedding Anniversary yesterday xx

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Today's gift is just the perfect way to finish the working week. Your new Efolder looks gorgeous and I can see it's going to be a must have. I can see this gift being a perfect Silver Wedding Anniv. card can't you. I would love to see it in a different palette too. So it's gone into my 'must do' file.
Sue what a tease you are. I guess we're all scratching our heads or frantically going through the last two weeks' posts to try and find your new product. Will be setting the recorder for the week-end. What a beautiful gift you are giving us two week-ends crafting with SW within three weeks. I'm waiting impatiently for tomorrow.

June - I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday.

Mr E's INR had risen to within his needed range and so he has decided that he's going to try driving today so fingers crossed.
As I didn't get any crafting done yesterday or this week as I think back I just have to get some done today or withdrawal systems will definitely set in. So off to get a cup of coffee and then start.

To all in pain and feeling down I hope your day gets better. To everyone please take care and stay safe. We have a little sunshine at the moment.
See you tomorrow.
Janet x

CHERYL Brown said...

Oh you little minx teasing us yet again!. Seriously now, looking forward to the shows and what a stunner of a card today. Loving everything about it. I don't use a lot of silver, mainly for Christmas cards, so this is a perfekt example of what you can do. Thank you Sue for sharing with us.
If yesterday was not a kind to you, then I wish today would be. To all the dear hearts on this blog, gurt big ((((hugs)))) to you.

Pat S Witney said...

Hi Sue
Another truly stunning card. We always run out of words to describe your cards. The Lyra die is my favourite die of the Gemini collection. This card certainly does it justice. You are a tease Sue I wonder what this new product, well I assume it's a product. I've been trawling through your cards to see if anything sticks out. I suppose we'll just have to wait until tomorrow. No need to wish you luck tomorrow as half the country will be glued yo their seats.

No doubt I will be doing the same over the weekend with your shows. I have a couple of Ideas of what you maybe hinting at but I don't want to guess here in case I spoil the surprise, so I will keep quiet.

Best wishes

Hi Sue Love the way you show the endless versatility of your dies. The Lyra has to be a favourite and the colour combo really does it for me. The whole piece works so well. Kindest regards Judith (Moran) x

Hi Sue,
I started to write this several hours ago with many an interruption since!
My friend called with her new Gemini quilted die and she'd brought some cards she had made too. They were lovely. We decided it would be a good die for paper piecing!
To return to today's lovely card! I love what you've done with the Lyra die and will definitely try that out.
Love the colours today and your little flowers are gorgeous!
About this tease? May have guessed maybe not ? Will own up if I'm wrong.
Looking forward to weekend's shows.
Angela - thanks for the hugs! So pleased the mist has rolled away! That made me smile. x
Love to everyone,
Have a lovely weekend.
Love Myra xx

Cathie Weary said...

Sue, I just love this card. The new embossing folder is fabulous and can hardly wait to order this one. So looking forward to your shows tomorrow. Last time you were on we lost our power over the weekend and I missed the shows. I was so disappointed as had been so looking forward to seeing them. Have an idea what the tease is so will have to see if I am correct. Have fun with the shows. It is always so wonderful to see you.

Bejay Roles said...

Hi Sue, This card is so pretty and I adore the colours you've used. Sorry I've not commented for a few days, been fighting a 24/7 headache for over a week so trying to limit my computer time. It looks like I've picked a nice day to feel up to typing :). As always, thanks so much for sharing with us. x

Meg said...

Hi Sue,
Another multi purpose card today - I like it very much.
The Lyra Gemini die reminds me of waves so could do that on a male card with some nautical theme.
Going to record your programmes at the weekend so am looking forward to seeing what your surprise will be.
Love and hugs to all.

Anonymous said...

This card is worthy of a WOW!! It's really striking. So many ideas to give us all heaps of inspiration for using your new dies thank you.
Well I thought I had your surprise worked out when you said it was an 'it' and I was so excited as I've wanted one the same as yours for ages and I see Phil has one now too but different colour. Hoewever having re-read the blog post again I realise its not that at all so now I'm onto a different guess which I'm pretty sure is correct but i know we won't be able to pin you down to an answer until tomorrow :)
Looking forward to all your shows at the weekend, I have tomorrow all to myself as everyone else is out at golf yay! Anniekk x
