Friday, 10 April 2015


Hi there crafters!  My favourite spring green for today's card.  I started by embossing the top of the card with the Swirling Heart embossing folder.  I cut the bottom edge with the Phoenix edge for shape.  I just score a strip of white card and used it underneath the edge.  I stamped the Floral Doodle stamp using a clear Perfect Medium pad then embossed it in white.  I cut it out with the Herald Square dies and created a frame.  I inked it lightly with Shabby Shutters before removing it from the die.  I mounted it on foam and added it to the top of my card.  I stamped my sentiment ten cut it into a forked strip and glued it across my frame.  I made a two tone Camellia out of green and white card and seated it on white tulle at the left end of my sentiment strip.  I made two matching stick pins and added them as embellishments.  To finish off the edge of my embossing, I cut the Phoenix die in white and backed it with a spring green matching shape.  I added it with foam along the embossed edge.  The card was completed with a paper pierced white mat, a thin spring green mat and a final white mat layer.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 1/2" in size.
Remember the winners for this weeks card giveaway and comment game will be announced on Monday's blog post. I am in London at our Alexandra Palace show on the weekend so please stop by and say hi if you are in the area.  All for now, Sue x

Ecco of Sheffield said...

Morning Sue
Good luck this week-end although I really know you don't need it you will be showered with love from your Wilsonettes every day.

Today's gift is so Spring isn't it.
Such a pretty green and coupled with the white so gentle and so so calm. Again you have used one of my favourite Gemini dies which always look superb and used with your other products produces a most beautiful gift anyone would love to receive.

To all you very lucky ladies attending Ally Pally today have a really good time.
Well it's Friday again and so off to market we go! I've a long list today so fingers crossed all the stalls I need are there.

To all my Wilsonette Sisters who have been absent for sometime I hope you're all on the way to healthyness (is that a word?)and back to this wonderful blog family.

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

Morning Sue. This is a beautiful card. Loving the fresh colours and what you can do with the gemini die's they always give you a stunning finish. Have to agree with Craftysuetoo the Metro Arena at Gateshead would be ideal for a fantastic craft show or Doncaster Race Course. Hope everyone going to the show has a fantastic time over the weekend.
Take care everyone.
Best Wishes.

Gorgeous card and as everyone is saying it does shout Spring Green is not a colour I use very often (was the colour of my school uniform - yeuck!) but this shade is lovely One of the main reasons I'm coming to AP on Sunday is to see the CE card in real life AND to meet you and the rest of the gang

What a stunningly Spring Creation! I absolutely love green and this card is Gorgeous! It almost looks like green Pergomano as it is such a delicate stamp, just love every detail of this card.
Wishing you a wonderful show at Ally Pally, Sue! and to all the Wilsonettes going you are so lucky ( I wish it was me) have a fabulous time and tell us all about the goodies you have been tempted with ! ( have to say The Glasgow Show in March was poor and really disappointing this year, but it's the only one I can manage to get to )

Ooh, I like this one too - such a fresh look to it.
I wish I could get to Ally Pally, I'd love to come and say hello, but it's too far, and too expensive. I have just paid for a once in a lifetime trip to Houston in October, so that I can go see the quilt show there.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. Never been a 'green person' but boy, am I green today ! To read all these really lucky ladies that have the chance to meet you this weekend has turned me bright green, I shouldn't feel envy towards my fellow Wilsonettes and I hope you all have the time of your lives, but until we have a GOOD craft show in the Lancashire area Im afraid my dream of meeting you will always remain a pipe dream : (
Onto something a lot more happier, this gorgeous card. Although Im not into green I must invest in some of this beautiful spring green card, the lady has turned lol.
I shall be treating myself to one of your dies today, well I have a really good reason to spoil myself, I need cheering up.
So, I wish you all a good day whatever your plans. A wonderful weekend Sue, and better health to our unwell friends.

OMG SUE!!!!!!
Today's card is PERFECT!, I love the colour firstly, I just love green and what a beautiful shade of green you have used! The composition of the dies you have used is perfect too Sue, this has to be one of my favourite cards of yours Sue, I just absolutely love it! (Oh no I am beginning to sound like a certain tv presenter) but I do genuinely mean I love it!
Right then who's excited about tomorrow ? I just can't wait to meet up with so many of you, June Smith, I would love to catch up with you!
We (some of my blog ladies ) who are Sue's blog ladies too, have arranged to all meet up for a catch up and for many of us to meet for the first time, which as we have all got to know just about everything about each other over in he Cotswold cafe , the icing on the cake, we have all been bought together by our shared love of Sue and her cards and stamps and dies and.. Well the list goes on bit you get the point!
Although I feel a little sad as I would love to have met up with the lovely Sam Smithard, but she just can't make it this time, keep on that road to recovery Sam and hopefully we can enjoy our weekend together later in the year!
Right I am off to make my list and do so,e price checking!
Love and hugs to all,

Hi Sue and everyone

What a beautiful card. It seems I am in the minority as I love green. I especially love this shade of green and it looks lovely with the crisp white card.

I love the embossing folder and dies too and always think that white embossing powder is a winner.

I am going to Ally Pally tomorrow. It will be my first time and I'm really excited. It is a long way to go, but it will be worth it to hopefully meet Sue and see some of her designs in 'real life'. Oh yes and to have the chance to stock up on some more crafty goodies.

Love Helen xxx

Hi Sue,
Gorgeous card, very springlike, clean and feminine. Just lovely. Hope everything goes well at Ally Pally. Clare , TOB and Sam hope you're all feeling better. Finally got to take my aunt to Rockcliffe Hall yesterday and it was lovely to see her enjoying herself. We sat outside in the grounds and it was gorgeous. She said it was lovely to be in the fresh air for once. It made everything worthwhile.
Love and hugs to all especially those who aren't 100%. Love Alison xxx

Hi Sue. This card is really lovely !! It is sooo very pretty !! You have used my most favourite colour - green !! It is such a great pastel green shade and it goes so well with the coconut white card. I have the pastel green and it goes just as lovely with the milk card to. I love the look of your Floral Doodle stamp and it is now on my huge wish list !! I love the effect of the white embossing powder on the green card. Your fab Phoenix Gemini Die is Sooo pretty and it looks like a perfect match with your gorgeous Camelia flower dies. I love your stick pins to. This is a very nice background EF. I have, at long last, ordered your fantastic background EF Rambling Blosooms !! It has been on my wish list for such a very long time now. It will be my first ever Floral background EF and I can't wait for it to arrive and have a play !! I am sorry I can't make Alley Palley this weekend but I hope you and all the lucky ladies that are going have a wonderful time. Hubby has promised to take me in September and there is no way he will be getting out of it !!!! Thank you for today's beautiful card Sue love from Tres x x x

Sending lots of love to all the Wonderful Wilsonettes love from Tres x x x
