Many Thanks

 Morning bloggers and a great big Happy Birthday to my Mom!  She is 92 today!  Today's card is very similar to the one that I made for her birthday, but this is actually the card that I demoed on the POTD launch last week.  I started with the weaving and cut two Classic Weaving dies in white and two Striped Weaving dies out of Periwinkle card.  I glued the Striped atop the Classic to create the banded look.  I have done a You tube video showing how to prepare the weaving dies and do the weaving so you can check that out if you would like a more in depth explanation (it is called Woven and Framedhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwfaH_O8RRQ and you can watch it here)  I cut the  Ornate Pierced Rectangle Noble die in white using the outer and inner cutting edges to create a frame.  I used only the two outer cutting edges to create the blue edging and then glued it on top.  I added mounting foam to the frame and attached it over my woven piece. You just need to use your scissors to nip away the excess from underneath the frame.  I cut two Caribbean borders out of coconut white card covered with sticky adhesive sheets.  I glittered those with Diamond Sprinkles and glued them to the top and bottom edges of the card.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the Pierced Flags and matted it with the next size up cut in blue.  I made a Camellia flower and sugared it with Iced Snow  and seated it upon a white satin ribbon bow which I attached at the end of the sentiment strip.  I added a thin blue satin ribbon bow as well for a pop of colour,  I finished it off with two matching blue stick pins.  The card was then finished with a pierced white mat, a thin periwinkle card mat and a wider white mat.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4" x  9" in size.

I do hope that you will be able to join me for my Spring Die Release Blog Launch later this week. As usual, we will be giving away a set of each of the new dies to lucky drawing winners!  I can't wait!   For now, I am just going to enjoy the day with my Mom!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. Happy Birthday to your Mam, I hope that you both have a wonderful day together. Gorgeous card, will have to watch the video on weaving. Looking forward to seeing your new collection, I'm trying hard not to look at any sites that have already shown pictures - I prefer to wait and see how you've used them. Sue xxx

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. Happy 92nd birthday to your wonderful mom today. Wonder what suprises she has in store from her breakfast club buddies this year (maybe another pair of jeans) ? Lol. Have the most wonderful day together making memories. Yeehaa - enjoy the day.

I remember you telling us this was a version of your card to mom during your POTD. It was amazing how clear your instructions were on how to use the weaving dies, so thank you.
Woah, another launch. My craft shop owner is expecting her delivery quite soon, she is so chuffed that she gets to have them 6wks before they are aired on tv and she has arranged a demo day in her shop that will show all the new dies.
Well Sue that's me done for the day, I look forward to your launch and like all other regular Wilsonettes will be here to suppoet your new collection every step of the way.
Happy birthday to our blog family members and hope everyone celebrates hard and has fun.
Hugs all round but special hugs to 'our birthday girl' my toast to you is "have a very special day with your remarkable special daughter, may your day be full of laughter and making memories" Cheers.

Morning Sue. Another stunning card. Your demo on the the weaving die's was a great help as i was struggling with them, then i watched your demo on Tuesday night and everything just fell in to place. I think it was my little grey cells not working properly lol. Sending your mom a big hug and wishing her a fantastic 92nd birthday wishes. Hope you all have a great day with family and her breakfast club friends. I wonder what her surprise is this year. Hope we see some pic's of her cake and her friend's. Can't wait to see what you have done with your spring release die's,but as alway's there will be some stunning sample's. Good Luck for your new release this week.
Take care everyone.
Best Wishes.

Morning Sue, Wishing a very Happy Birthdsy to your Mum.
This card is lovely I must get the weaving dies but have been playing with the Pick of the day and did some weaving with ribbon on one of them. Can I ask a favour can you do a tutorial of the Black card with the gold gilding wax please. I just love that card, I did improvise and had a go using mica but it's not quite the same. I've ordered the guilding wax just waiting for it to arrive.

Thanks for all your inspiration.

You card is stunning as usual Sue, that periwinkle blue is gorgeous.

Morning Sue and wishing a very happy day to your Mom on her 92nd birthday. Hope it's a great day and will be thinking of you at the Breakfast Club! Birthdays - no calorie days, just enjoy!!
Lovely lovely card, one that my Mum would have adored. Best purchase ever was this noble set, and your weaving superb but don't think somehow I'd have the patience.
Looking forward to your new dies release, especially the samples - and yet again thank you for your generosity, though definitely not looking to win as was lucky with Carina last time.
Saw my 102 and-a-half year old aunt yesterday (unfortunately 250 miles away) she now has only 9 teeth left and laughs that they don't line up so not much use for chomping away! Otherwise in good spirits.
As it was so late for me last night, forgot to say well done to all the comment winners. Mind went AWOL.

Congratulations & Happy Birthday to your Mum Sue, I do hope she has a great day. It's my ex DH's birthday too, so I shouldn't forget it.
I love the weaving, your card is brilliant as usual. It's easier to understand it when you see the card, compared to looking at the die.

I found my Lyra die! I am a Happy Bunny now, I hadn't even managed to cut any out before I 'lost' it. It was in with all my magnetic sheets, I just didn't recognise it, though I can't think wy, it's distinctive enough.

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Firstly may I wish your mom a very, very happy birthday. I hope you both have a wonderful day - one to treasure.
Today's card is beautiful. I really like the weaving and the flower is lovely too. This could easily be altered to make a wonderful masculine card too. Looking forward to the launch of your new dies. I have seen them, but so far have resisted pre- ordering any- how long for I'm not sure!!!
Have a fabulous day.
Happy birthday to anyone who is celebrating today. Love and hugs to everyone and have as good a day as is possible. Love Alison xxx

Hi Sue
Firstly HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUR MUM?
I love this card and doesn't the Carribean border looks like it belongs, not put on top. Look forward to seeing your samples of your new dies.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, this card is delightful and I enjoyed your demo last week. Lucky Sandra to win it. I am sure your mum loved her birthday card knowing that you had not only made it but designed the dies as well. She will be so proud of her clever daughter.

I had a sneak peek at your new range but am looking forward to the official launch here on your blog because that is when we see the creative genius at work. Pennies are in short supply for this release but I won £25 on the lottery on Saturday so that has been earmarked for at least one & hopefully two of the new dies.

Have a lovely day with your mum and cherish the time you spend with her.

Hi Sue,
First of all I would like to wish your Mum a very Happy Birthday! It really doesn't seem like a year since her last Birthday! Please give her my love and say Hi to everyone at the Breakfat Club! Have a great day - don't even think about diets today! Xx
Today's card is a real beauty . It has to be one of my favourite's from the Shows last week. I just love the colours . Weaving dies are climbing that ladder which is my List!
It's a gorgeous day again here today and warmer than yesterday.
Looking forward to what you have in store for us! Oh help - that List again!
Enjoy your day with Mum,
Lots of love,

What a great card I really love the weaving dies they are so clever. Happy birthday to your mum I hope you have a wonderful day together.

Dawn Holben said...

I love this card it's absolutely gorgeous and the weaving dies are fab.
I have them and love using them too as you only have to change the colours and the effects are so different.
Wishing your mum a very happy birthday and hope you both have a wonderful day together.
I can't wait for the launch of the new dies, I already have my eyes on quite a few of them.

CraftyJo said...

Lovely colours and a very intriguing basket weave, will have to check out that video, thanks.

Karen Knight said...

Hi Sue, this is absolutely gorgeous and the weaving dies are just stunning! I have both the sets, but still haven't had the chance to use them yet, but will soon. I am leaving my job on Friday and will take a little time for myself before I find another position. So I can see lots of crafty fun time on the horizon!! I hope your Mom has a truly wonderful birthday. Hugs, Karen x

Good afternoon Sue and the fabulous Wilsonettes,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JILL(sorry if i have got that wrong because the memory is not quite what it once was) but i hope you have a lovely day Sue's mum and enjoy your great day with all your lovely friends at your local wee coffee shop.
Sue, this is such a beautiful card and i know that you mum will love her's. The blue and white is such a fresh combination and timeless. I have just received today my weaving dies after humming and hawing for a wee while now about them, but i just love the effect that they give and the fact that they can be oh so girlie or to the other extreme make one of those dreaded cards that i hate to make....mens.
Sorry i haven't been in the past couple of weeks flower but i was just so down and couldn't shake myself out of it, although i have now got my grandsons shawl made in "airforce" blue and started a new white one that is have way through. I will get trying out my new toys that i received today surffice to say, i was very naughty so that will be me for a long while as i seen s certain lady who made 4 different collections of dies, 4 different lots of stamps and lovely card jump into my basket and it wouldn't come out until i had said it could come home with me.
Sending hugs to all my angels both here and not able at the moment,
love and crafty hugs

Hello Sue,
I love this periwinkle blue card, doesn't it look fantastic when used with your weaving dies. I was on the the fence for some time re these dies - confession time. - the more I saw what they can do, the more I 'needed' them. I just love the results.

Looking forward to your new launch- The Bank isn't!!!!!!

Sending your lovely Mom Best Wishes for her 92nd Birthday (what a remarkable lady)
Enjoy your time together.

Helen Bell said...

Hello Sue and everyone

Beautiful card Sue. I hope you are having a wonderful time with your mam and I wish her a very a Happy Birthday.

I could not post yesterday so I didn't get chance to say thank you to all who those who commented on my compost bin fiasco with lovely messages to say they were pleased my beloved Izzy bag did not come to any harm. Thankfully the box was a little damp but not too soiled and the card was unharmed. Still can't believe a postman would put a cardboard box in a compost bin!

Izzy, I received your brown and cream one. It really is amazing. You are really talented. Thank you again. I've been a bit like a child as I still had the recorded shows and kept replaying to see 'my' Izzy bag being shown by different people. I can't believe I was lucky enough to win it.

I too have seen the new dies and they are great. Decisions, decisions.......

I hope you are having a lovely time with your mam Sue and enjoy your time away.

Love Helen xxx

Maggie C said...

Linda28 said...

Beautiful card Sue, I am definitely treating myself to these weaving dies, I love the effect they give. Looking forward to your new release! A big hug to your Mum on her birthday, there is no better place than Florida to age to perfection, I am amazed when I go over there how a lot of senior citizens are still so active, golfing, swimming, walking with weights etc in their nineties and over, WONDERFUL. My mother in law is ninety two in November. hugs to all, Linda.

Maggie (York) again!

Andrea Sykes said...

Hi Everyone,

These dies are amazing, I love what such a simple die can achieve such amazing effects!

I am sure you have been asked many times before but the piercing that you do around your cards and now have incorporated into some of your dies. I am amazed that you have not brought out several sets of basic shapes with pierced holes, different sizes for different sized mats and layers? Tell me is this a silly question or some thing that is just not possible?

I for one would definitely welcome these dies, I find it limited and not that easy to do pierced edges. I also would prefer it to look as perfect and professional as my dies make my creations look.

Just a thought!

Warmest regards,
Andrea x

Hi Sue
Happy Belated birthday to your mum i hope she had a wonderful day
Such a beautiful card it does look a bit difficult to make but maybe that is just me. I never saw you on C&C as been to the cabin and there is no TV or internet.
Take care
