Thanks For Being There

Hi crafters!  How about a Gemini die channel card for today.  I have chosen a raspberry card (from my stash) and stamped my sentiment (from Bold Sentiments by Creative Exp.)with a clear Perfect Medium pad.  I heat embossed it with True White detail embossing powder.  Next I cut four of the Ursa Gemini die in white using the decorative insert and one cutting edge.  I cut four matching pieces of raspberry backing pieces using just the one cutting edge (and cutting the back edge on the other side in my paper cutter).  I glued all the decorative pieces together with the backing pieces.  Next, I stacked three of them up so they were each peeking out from under the next and taped them together, added some mounting foam and attached them to the top of may card above my sentiment.  I added foam too the last one, turned it to face the top and attached it below my sentiment, creating a channel where the sentiment was stamped.  Next I cut several of the Complete petal Camellia in coconut white card and made a pretty flower, tipping the edges lightly with Picked Raspberry distress ink.  I coated it in Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue and sugared it with Iced Snow for a bit of bling.  I seated the flower to the side of the sentiment in the channel with some white tulle, Mosaic leaves and a Splendid Swirl spray behind.  I finished the card with my usual white pierced layer, then a thin raspberry mat and a wider white mat layer.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x 7 3/4" in size.  Hope you like it!  All for now, Sue x

Im not sharing the amount incase Sue wants to announce it herself, but she has had an amazing responce from you after joining bloglovin AND clicking to follow Sue and Particraft. In just a week Sue has had an amazing amount of friends show just how much her dedication and hard work means to us. So thank you to everyone for helping Sue.
What would be also amazing that if its possible, those talanted people that have blogs of their own would give Sue's blog a mention every so often and lead your friends and follower's to Particraft and bloglovin, I really hope you dont mind me asking ?
So have a wonderful day ( I know Sue will after having that email)

Wow! I love today's card it's striking, you can do so much with the Gemini dies. My visitors were still here but I managed to watch some of the shows I recorded, your samples and demos were fabulous. I loved Izzy's bag not seen the Butterfly yet though if the bags are anything to go by it will be fantastic. It was nice to hear a few Wilsonettes names mentioned and congratulations Mrs B on winning a card. It was fantastic seeing you again on our TV screens Sue it's such a pleasure watching your demos I always learn from them thank you.

Saw some of the shows , and have recorded all, great shows. Best Wishes Lilian in Cornwall

I love this card Sue, as it look so elegant. I can't afford any new kit at the moment, but the Ursa and Gemini dies have to be next on my list.
Your shows at the weekend were superb Sue and I so enjoyed watching them while I crafted.
Oh so much crafting to do and so little time! Housework should be banned, as should laundry, grocery shopping etc etc.
Have a great week Sue and thanks again.

Morning Sue. Well were to start first. Beautiful card. My husband bought me the Gemini dies at christmas and i love them. You can do so many things with them but never thought to make the handbags like Izzy, they were stunning and with the little price tags just the perfect finishing touch. The butterflies were gorgeous something different to try. Got my stick pins just waiting for them to arrive and have a play lol. Hope you had a great weekend and now get to have a couple of R&R days before you start again. Thank you for all your demo's over the weekend as always learnt loads of new thing will have to try your new paper grouting technique as that looks to have a beautiful finish to it. Joined your bloglovin over the weekend and now all my favourite cards are in one place my personel little libery lol once again thank you for all your hard work.
Take great care everyone as we have a covering of snow this morning and it's very cold.
Best Wishes.

June said...

Morning Sue, Pam and all Wilsonettes, I love todays card, I have the die but have not used it yet, so you have given me inspiration.

I so enjoyed all your shows over the weekend, you were a laugh a minute with Dean, you make a great team hilarious. I would have loved to win all the samples but it was not to be, I do have my special Wednesday giveaway that I won last year and I treasure that.

Have a great Monday everyone, grandchildren back at school today, stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Morning Sue
Hope you're not feeling too tired after that marathon week-end you've just had. I'm so pleased that I managed to get one of your NY bundles before the sell outs started.
I love today's gift. The raspberry backing just shows the Gemini die to perfection. I'm hoping that this die may be coming my way at the week-end as I've sown the seeds. Just hoping they

Although I've only watched the first show up to now I see that many friends were mentioned and one very lucky lady won a SW piece of art. Congratulations Mrs B.
Izzy - your handbags are an absolute delight. Do you have a template for them?
Steph - hope everything goes well today.

I too think that housework etc should be banned and I have the perfect stamp if needed to be reminded. 'Crafting for ever housework NEVER'.

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

Hi Sue,

Very "theatrical" card today with those repeating swags - just love it and since I have Ursa I shall be trying this myself...and congrats on your sell-out weekend! was wonderful to see that cup of chance brimming over with e-mails on every show...


Ladies, I'm just going to e-mail Sue to see if we can figure out a way to post details of how to make up the bags - they're very simple to make, there are no actual templates as such (well, just one maybe for the sides of the Lyra clutch bag) but I have two prototypes left here that I can take measurements from and that's really all you would need with a brief run-through of how to cobble up each bag...but I don't want to become the Bag Lady who's spreading herself all over Sue's park bench and annoying everyone!


alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Great card today, love everything about it - colours, dies used, layout etc. Fabulous. Really enjoyed all of the shows and pleased that were such a success. Will now have to curb my spending after buying the stick pin set!
Very cold here today. Dave has gone to Norfolk until Wednesday night so I've got some time to play until then! Hope everyone is ok and sending extra special hugs to those feeling down, poorly or having treatment. Love to everyone, Alison xxx

Chris Curry said...

A lovely card Sue, at the end of an extraordinary weekend. I especially love the camellia flowers, is picked raspberry a new ink? I definitely don't have it and want it. Thank you Xx

pinky said...

Perfectly gorgeous. Love the raspberry colour and the sentiment looks like a die cut, its so raised. Love it.

lydia jordan said...

Morning Sue,
Gorgeous card, and a great weekend, loved all of the shows I just have the last one to view on catch up.
I adored you stick pin bundle but the kit was too big for me, I'm hoping that they may be sold in smaller packs at a later date.
Thank you Sue for the great tips and ideas you gave us, loved the grouted paper technique, must get some sparkle paste.
Hope you manage to get a little rest.

MRS DUCK said...

Good morning Sue and everyone
Adore this card as I love the raspberry and the dies.
Only managed to catch a couple of shows but you were a joy to watch as usual.
Have a great day.

Saba said...

Good morning Sue
What a Stunning card. Love the dramatic feel the raspberry card combined with coconut white gives. It really shows the Ursa die off to perfection.
Your shows were fantastic. You really pushed the boat out with all your amazing demos. There were so many ideas, hints and tips packed into them. I think that is one of the reasons your shows stand out from the rest, you don't just die cut and stick, but rather you show us inspirational ways to use our dies, new techniques (loved paper grouting) and you are not afraid to demo things which must be so scary to demonstrate live on air, like embossing paste.
Your demos are so clear and easy to follow, and you teach us so much, thank you Sue, you really must put so much thought and hard work into your pre show prep and it shows. The amount of emails showed just how much love and respect there is for you and your products.
And thank you for showing Izzys bags again, they are just gorgeous.
I was thrilled to have a couple of my emails read out and couldn't resist testing Nigel with his pronunciation of the german for Squirrel. It was lovely to hear so many Wilsonettes names being read out and then Mrs. B winning one of your wonderful cards was the icing on the cake!!
Looking forward to April already.

Izzy, you are not annoying anyone lady. We have fallen in love with your handbags and it showed on Sue's face during the shows that she has fallen for them too.

Love and hugs for all in need

Ps. I'm lovin Bloglovin.

Good morning Sue, and all the ladies.
Sue, your card is stunning, and so were the shows over the weekend. I had a great time doing very little, just sending in e-mails (1 got read out but Dean didn't say my full name - boo hoo) and letting George wait on me hand and foot (slight exaggeration).
And so many Wilsonettes names read out, and a couple pulled out of the pot - congratulations.
Alimecca - enjoy your husband free time and craft, craft, craft!!
Steph - hope all goes well today.
Izzy - fabulous idea of using the dies in handbags.

Lovely card Sue, I am particularly drawn to all the Gemini die set, perhaps because I was born in June, (10th, just after you).

Hello Sue and everyone

Sue, you excelled yourself this weekend. You are a true professional. Excellent demonstrations, clear and easy to follow instructions, stunningly beautiful card samples and it was clear to everyone that you were enjoying the shows and we're having fun.

You give so many variations on using your fabulous dies along with great hints and tips. I hope you are extremely proud of all you have achieved, you are well loved and respected so many people. I am proud to be one of your many followers.

Hi Sue, a lovely card and the raspberry card is gorgeous. I thoroughly enjoyed your shows at the week-end and will be watching all the demo's again on the recorder.
Congratulations to all those who had e-mails read out and especially Mrs B for being pulled from the cup.

It is snowing lightly here but the ground is so wet from all of yesterday's rain that it is not settling - yet! Take care if you are going out anywhere today.

Sue, hope you have a nice relaxing day and I am already looking forward to your return on C & C after Easter.

Love todays Raspberry and white with the gorgeous camellia flower. I am really enjoying playing with this die set as it makes so many different types of flowers for us. I was playing yesterday and made 3 Sue cards, or rather Sue dies cards. The Gemini dies are fast becoming a firm favourite just because of their versatility in design. Thank you Sue for all your hard work that you have put in this weekend for us and i hope that you get a couple hours rest before going at it hammer and tongs again. Take care dear friend as don't want you burning yourself out because of work overload. I have ordered some of your beads and spacers up just so that i can on some special cards make them look that bit more special. Thank you Sue for sourcing them for us and managing to get them into the country.
Issy haven't seen your butterfly flower but i did see two bags and they were stunning so thank you for inspiring us even more on Sue's wonderful blog.
After the marathon yesterday i am not quite in the pink today so i will leave you all with a basket full of hugs of all shapes and sizes for all that needs one both here on the blog and not, come home soon girls.
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Take care

Myra said...

Good Morning Sue,
How are you this morning? Totally exhausted I think but do hope you are delighted with the response to the Weekender. I thoroughly enjoyed the Shows although I still have two to watch! Today's card is beautiful . I do like that die very much but Lyra is still my favourite Gemini . Having said that I don't have any of the new launch Gemini dies, ...yet!
Izzy - never a bag lady! Maybe a designer Bag Lady! Chanel, Dior - eat your heart out.
Great to hear all the familiar names read out and cards shown!
You can see the counter on Bloglovin! Super!
Love to all ,
Myra xx

SusanLily said...

Hi Sue, what a wonderful weekend of shows. I managed to order 2 sets of dies after reminding my Husband that Mother's Day and Easter are coming up soon, ha ha.
Your cards are so inspirational. How do you become a Wilsonnette?

Oh this is stunning :)

Cathie Weary said...

Sue, you must be exhausted after all your shows this weekend. I watched all of them and you did an outstanding job once again. So many tips and techniques. It was nice to hear Mrs. B's name heard as a card winner. Loved your paper grouting technique and will have to try it out. Today's card is lovely as always. Thanks so much for all you do.

scrAPpamondo said...

So beautiful card with this gorgous flower and leaves! Love the Mosaic leaves and Ursa Gemini dies!!

Brenda Lello said...

Hello Sue,
What A beautiful card, love the Germini dies they are so versatile, and it's amazing how many different ways you have already shown us they can be used.
Your shows were brilliant at the weekend Sue, so many beautiful samples and the demos and tips were fantastic. I hope you are not to exhausted after such a marathon LOL
Take care, Love Brenda xxx

Maxine T said...

Love your Gemini dies, I am a gemini maybe that is why.
I have just ordered two of them. Maxine T

fluffycat said...

P.S. Sue, my prize from the die launch has just arrived. Once again I thank you so very much.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. I am so sorry I have been "missing again" but I caught some sort of tummy bug. Combined with my long term illness it totally knocked me off my feet for several days !! One big bonus though was that it provided me with the perfect opportunity to relax and watch all of your shows on c+c over the weekend. WOW, WOW, WOW !! What a weekend !! It has been amazing Sue. Your dies are just outstanding. Your samples are so incredibly gorgeous and your demo's were fab, with loads of hints, tips "tricks" and the new "grouting technique" !! WOW !! Then your wonderful surprise - a massive bumper pack of beautiful beads and stick pins that we have waited soooo long for. But Oh my were they worth the wait !! I just had to order them even though I could not really afford them. The way I see it is that they are a long term investment as I am certain I will be card making for many more years to come - hopefully !! I am a complete beginner with these stick pins and I cannot wait for them to arrive so I can get started.
Today's card is another WOW card for me. I love the colours you have used. I have yet to buy a Gemini Die, but they are all on my huge wish list. I just cannot collect all your die sets quickly enough. To be honest I have not got a clue which one to go for first as they are all so beautiful. The Ursa used on today's card is so pretty and using it to make a channel card with the sentiment in between is such a fab idea Sue. I love, love, love your new Camelia Dies and these to are on my wish list, along with the beautiful Mosaic Leaves Dies. Thank you for absolutely everything Sue. You are amazing !! Sending you lots of love and great big hugs from Tres x x x

Congratulations to the Wednesday Card Giveaway winner and all the winners of the comment game. Lots of love from Tres x x x

Izzy - What can I say about your handbag cards except WOW, WOW, WOW !! They are amazing. So clever, so beautiful, so inspirational, so girly and so wonderful !! Honestly Izzy, they are gorgeous. I love your Gemini Butterfly to. You are so talented. I really hope you could give us all some instructions for making them. Then maybe I could talk hubby round to just buying me one little Gemini Die so that I colud make some !! Thank you so much love from Tres x x x

To all the Wonderful Wilsonettes, have a lovely day everyone lots of love from Tres x x x

Hi Sue loved your shows this weekend, I have ordered the New York dies and can't wait for them to arrive, love your card the colours are great, I have the Gemini delphinus die so I am off to have a play. Thanks for all the inspiration take care love Pam

Wheely Bad said...

Hi Sue,

stunning colour card, the white really pops on that raspberry. The die has elbowed it's way to the top of my list, I managed to get those stamps from JS a few week ago, very pleased with them, I have all the shows recorded, and will catch up those I missed during the week, and see the ones I didn't miss again, just to drill into my head what I'm doing! I just hope that pizza had all the trimmings as you deserve it and that you are putting your feet up for a few days for a well deserved rest.

Izzy, I think your bags are amazing and would love it if something can be sorted so we can find out how they were made x

Having a crafty afternoon, but not cards sadly. Am finishing off some storage as I need to re jig my bedroom where the printer lives away from paint, ink and lord knows what in tje craft half a room. My new printer is bigger than my last one as it has a scanner too and I need to get a few things moved to fit it in. Also got to ring my Dad and arrange to get together so a busy (by my standards) day!

Just had some brilliant news, my nephew has just got an apprenticeship at a care home to start after he's finished college. He is really a caring young man and has always gotten on well with older people. He's 19 so he has a clearer idea of what he wants to do with his life.

Will sort the bloglovin thing asap but would rather sign up on the laptop than on my phone, I just prefer to sign up to new stuff that way.

Hugs to Wilsonettes everywhere, extra special hugs if you are ill, in any sort of pain, in treatment or recovery. Have a lovely rest of day!

This just has to be another 'wow'. Love it & wouldn't have thought of using the die in this way. Thanks Sue!

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

What another beautiful card and such an effective use of the dies. Also love the colour combo, but I don't think you can go wrong with red and white!. Want to say thanks to Sue for your generosity, I was lucky enough to be one of the winners from the extra qualifying post for a set of stamps and ended up also having my email pulled from the cup of chance on C&C on your last show. What a weekend!! Thank you again.

Stunning card today, and I love the raspberry card.

I have to say again how I really enjoyed your demo's over the weekend. especially last evening after a lovely day with Claire and Craig, only to finish the evening off with a glass of wine round about midnight watching your last show with Deano. Perfect end to a perfect day.Thank you

Kind Regards to all :-)

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Evening Sue. All I wanted to say about your remarksble weekend has already been said, but what the heck, so nice for you to read all the deserving compliments over and over, right ? Lol.
Your show's are so professional in everyway. Your explanations of how to change the look of your dies open up a world of different idea's for all of us, and for the new crafters, how can they go wrong with your wonderful clarity.
Its SO nice to see lots of new names leaving their thanks and compliments for you Sue. WELCOME to each new friend at Particraft - enjoy your time here.
Hope the pain in your ear's is easing Mrs B, I read you were pulled from the big cup, owie, at least you have an amazing card to show for the bruises (a show I still have to catch up with)
Thank you Sue for the most amazing weekend and look forward to April so much.
Well, congratulations again for doing so well on bloglovin, may your number's continue to rise as a thank you for all your hard work, for your continuing generosity only to be found here, and for making budding crafter's of us, boy Sue, you have the most talanted 'children' ever.
Love and hugs to you Sue and all before me and those that call in after.

Lovely card, Sue, like the use of the Ursa die - very effective and love the flower and embellishment!
Sorry, late today - been hectic - and sadly 'Life in General' got in the way yesterday so didn't get to see any shows sob!! Will get on to catch-up later in the week. Wonder if you had lots of sell outs? Imagine so.
Haven't read comments so hope all are well and happy and sorry if I've missed anything of note!
