Monday, 4 May 2015


 Hello my crafty friends!  I hope everyone enjoyed the blog launch last week!  I still have so many cards to show you from previous releases as well so I hope you don't mind if I post some of those first.  Today's card is one of my favourites.  You may have seen it briefly during the last blog die launch or at Ally Pally or even on the POTD shows recently, but I think it still deserves it's day on the blog!  I started by cutting an aperture with my Decorative Frames from the Italian Collection out of white card..  I backed it with black card to create a dramatic backdrop.  Next I used an assortment of various flower dies to create some pretty flowers to go around the top of the aperture.  The Camellia complete petal, the Delicate Daisy open petal, the cornflower and even the tiny flowers from the Blossoming Branch were all used.  I even added in some foliage from the Delicate Fronds die set.  Next I cut a frame using the Classic Adorned Square Noble die set.  I cut a thin edge of black card using both of the Noble square sets and glued it on to the frame.  I mounted it with foam over the aperture.  I cut the expressions die "Enjoy" in white and glued it to the centre of the aperture.  The card was then finished with a white pierced mat,  a thin black mat and another wider white mat.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  7" in size.

I thought I would include a pic of my Mom's 92nd birthday, which was last Monday (scroll all the way past the cards).  She is looking very well and yes, we did eat all that cake! LOL   All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue, wow you are so much like your lovely Mum, that picture is a real treasure, she looks fantastic and I would never have said she was 92, she looks so much younger. So pleased you were able to spend the time with her.

Now to the cards, yes I saw this on the POTD, and Ally Pally and believe me the picture does not do it justice, you have to see it to believe it, what a beautiful creation, that is what dies are all about, and yes I do 'enjoy'.

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

Cathie Weary said...

Good morning Sue. Thanks so much for sharing such a beautiful card. The flowers are so pretty. It was so nice you were able to spend time with your Mom on her birthday. I am sure she really appreciated it.

Lynne Mills said...

Hi Sue, omg what an amazing card. Love love love it. Great pic of your mom she looks fabulous. So glad you managed to eat the cake, real shame to have left any!!!. Lol lynne m x x x

Poochies asleep now after hubby took them over the park.Typical hubby though, they all come back covered in grass and blossom and I'm the one that has to hoover the mess up, cheeky beggars. Count down to doggie haircuts begins, appt booked for Wednesday morning so told hubby he has to help this time bathing the wriggling worms before he goes to work as payback for the grass/blossom. He's hoping he has to go to work early to get out of it, told him as the little b's are his precious princesses it's only right he gets to help pamper them!!! ( definitely not how poochies view the event). Thought cuz I'm short I'll cut an opening in the top and both sides of a swing bin liner then at least I might stay a bit drier this time hehe.

Lol and hugs to all lynne m & dastardly devious doggie duo x x x

Lovely and bright card, love how you have used all the different flowers. Happy belated birthday to your Mum, she looks fantastic. Nothing wrong with a piece of cake on special occasions :)

Angela (UK) said...

Hi Sue, I hope you enjoyed your visit with your Mom, she certainly looks really well. Love the card, alot of cutting went into this card. Like you I love to make my own flowers, going to the effort of making a card, then sticking on shop bought flowers seems like cheating somehow. I've just bought the peony solid die, they've very pretty, think I'm going to have to buy the matching set - lol. Angela (UK)

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
This card definitely needs its day on the blog it's beautiful. I loved this card the first time I saw it, the different colours and flowers make the card 'pop'. I've certainly enjoyed the new die launch but I love looking at all the other cards you've made using your 'old dies'. I would like to thank you for all your hard work you've put in so that we can enjoy some fabulous products.
Your Mom is looking beautiful and doesn't look her age, you look so much like her. That cake looks gorgeous it would have been rude not to eat it all lol.
I'm off home today I have a hospital appointment Tuesday, hopefully things are okay so that I'll be able to 'play' with my new dies, it's killing me not being able to lol.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. Wonderful start to the new week. Such an array of beautiful Sue flower's on a bright sunny spring Monday morning in Lancashire. It looks amazing on screen but in real life it would render us breathless that's for sure !
Thank you again for giving us Wilsonettes such an outstanding launch. Every single die will be a complete sell out in no time and I think all will agree, these have been the best.

What a remarkable mom you have. You look so like her Sue, that smile and twinkle has surely been passed from mother to daughter. There is nothing wrong at all about eating cake (and all of it) ask Janet (eco) connoisseur of all cake lol.
To all newby Sueaholics that joined us during the launch and 'blogged' for the first time - Welcome to this addictive world of Particraft, full of friendship and happiness, hope to see you soon again.
Whatever your Bank Holiday plans - enjoy. And im sending extra special hugs to you Sue today, have a wonderful day making memories and hopefully basking in the gorgeous FL weather you are hopefully having.
Love to all.
Lancashire Steph xxx

Janice K said...

Good morning Sue, firstly a big thank you for the beautiful examples of your gorgeous new dies, it's always so much better to see what you can do with them as it helps to decide on the wishlist order!
A fantastic càrd today, the black background really makes those stunning flowers pop, something I must remember to do myself.
A lovely photo of you with your mum, I hope you manage to find the time to scrapbook it with some of your beautiful dies! Thank you for sharing all your wonderful inspiration with us.X

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Morning Sue

Well what a fabulous weekend with the launch and I can't wait for my pre-orders to arrive. Love today's offering. First saw it I think on the POTD and though it a little different then and even more so now. Its has a different slant to your usual with all the beautiful floral colours set of wonderfully on the black and white. Can see this also with the flowers produced tone on tone, but this one does have a vibrant colour about it.

Love the photo of you and your mum and hope you all enjoyed the cake!!!!

Ann Caves said...

Hi Sue
This has to be a an all time favourite card the composition is just stunning the flowers are super and colours just divine.This is a card anyone would love to receive and frame its a true work of art by a very accomplished designer- classy. Love the pic of you and your mom she does not look 92. Have a great day everyone- keep crafting.

Morning Sue

Sue your 'Mom' is looking wonderful and I only hope that if I'm still around at 92 I'll look half as good. Hugs to Mom on this sunny but still cold Bank Holiday morning.

I loved this gift when I first saw it and I cannot remember which show it was but it still has that beautiful impact. Beautiful colours for the flowers which bounce and shout 'I'm here look at me'. I have, as usual, a bday gift to make this week and I think it may be on the lines of today's gift.

Well as I've said it's sunny but still cold. When ob when will I be able to get out of these winter woolies and don some nice light summer ones. Did you notice I only exchanged winter for summer woolies.
Did anyone watch the last stage of the 'Tour de Yorkshire' yesterday afternoon. It was fantastic and showed Yorkshire in her full glory. A good finish too and no crashes and what a boost for the UK as the first time Yorkshire Tour and a member of SKY (the UK cycling team) won. Such a good advert for the country.

Usual Monday morning MR Tesco should arrive early and then I think a little crafting is called for. I wonder what the numbers will be today.
To all in pain and suffering I hope your day gets better. To everyone please take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

Hi Sue. Lovely pic if your mum celebrating her special birthday. She looks so well. Loved this card on C&C always love a flower selection on a card like this gives such dimension. Looking forward to seeing more of the cards you demonstrated on C&C I like to print them off and keep them in a Sue Wilson inspiration folder for easy access. May be magazine or a book of your cards is another idea. x

Hi Sue,
This card is one of my favourites. Sings to me every time I see it.
I think you should show it to us at least once every year.
Your mum looks well, indeed. And so do you.
Don't work too much and enjoy your time with your mom.
Hugs, Rose

Hi Sue
A lovely picture of the two of you that I'm sure you will treasure. The card today is beautiful. I was lucky enough to speak with you at Ally Pally and saw this card, it is truly beautiful.

hotpotato said...

wow I love the card Sue it's stunning. Your mum bless her looks fab for her age, she looks a good ten years younger than her 92 yrs. x

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, firstly I would like to say thank you for sharing the lovely picture of you and your mum on her birthday. You both look very relaxed and happy.

On to today's gorgeous card. I saved the picture of it on the last die launch as this is the die I was lucky enough to win. I am pleased to now have the full how-to instructions. I don't have the Noble dies so on my test card I fudged it with some old Spellbinders and was still pretty pleased with the result.
Happy Bank Holiday to everyone.

Sandra said...

Good morning Sua & friends,
Well Sue, ifell in love with this card when I saw it on the last launch, it showcases perfectly your different flower dies and the gorgeous 'Delicate Fronds' die too!
I think it really stood our because it wasn't your usual style.
Now, what a treasure your mom is, she just looks like she is In her 60's, this photo also highlights how alike the two of you are! You have a few similarities around your mouth and your cheeks too !
Well I hope the sun is shining for you and your amazing mum!
I am off to the Cotswold Cafe (my blog) to see what the ladies are up to in my absence, you wouldn't believe me if I told you,! Today we have a virtual trip to France to peek inside Janet (Ecco)'s French country home !
Thanks for sharing that stunning card again, it really is gorgeous!
Love &hugs

Lynn Dalby said...

Hello Sue and all

Beautiful Card. I can well understand you wanting to give this card it's time in the spot light, it is absolutely stunning. I had noticed it and am pleased to get a better look at it. Thank you for sharing.

I hope you are more at ease now after such a great launch and all our reactions. They are all wonderful.

Best wishes.

Joan said...

Morning Sue
I must say that you look like your mam,you would never believe that she was 92. A beautiful card today. The coloured flowers are gorgeous,not used to seeing your flowers in colour, so it makes a nice change.

Jan Moss said...

Morning Sue. Wow this card is absolutely shouts spring. Clean and fresh.
Your Mom looks wonderful, certainly looks younger than her years. I can see where your good looks come from!! Have a great week. Hugs. Jan. xx

Mac Mable said...

Yes your card certainly deserves it's day on the blog, so pretty, just love it! Loved these past few days too with all the new exciting and fabulous dies and all your gorgeous samples x

Lesley Thomas said...

Sue, your mum never looks 92 - I think she looks at least 20 years younger than that.
The card you made her is absolutely stunning. I have ordered the dandelion set, because I could see some of them as stamens for flowers. Now I've got the open peonies coming to me too - the closed set is out of stock, so I'll have to wait for that.
Still one of the best ideas for flowers out there, the idea of open and closed sets is a brilliant concept and I have the others so I couldn't miss out on these.

Hi Sue,
This is a lovely picture of you with your mom , She looks great and it doesn't look anywhere near the grand age she is. Thank you for sharing this very very personal moment with us.
I saw this card at Ally Pally and on POTD The photograph of it is stunning but to see it in real life as it were, it really takes your breath away it is so beautiful.

Sue I owe you an apology. On your last posting yesterday and I said I loved the pansies. Oops the eyes are not what they used to be. ( or the brain) so yes a BIG apology from me, I also love Peonies. We have some Red also deep Pink ones in the garden and they are just coming into bud, they always make such a fabulous display.
Hope you are having a good day, love and hugs. Brenda XXX

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Hiya Sue,

What a fab photo of you and your beautiful Mum-I can see where you get your youthful good looks from, if only it could be bottled!:-)
Today's card really stood out for me during the recent POTD launch shows-it is a real break from the norm for you and I just love the colour pop against the black background. The cluster of flowers would work really well on scrapbook layouts too, so I must give it a try soon.
I so regret not investing in the Noble dies when they were on CandC so they are top of my wish list for sure.
Wishing everyone a happy, sunny Bank Holiday Monday-I am going make a start on some birthday cards today using some dies from the recent shows.

Crafty luv,

CraftyJo said...

Lovely card Sue and that photo of you and your mum is super :)

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and the Wilsonettes
What better way to show off your beautiful flower dies than making them into the colourful focal point of your card today Sue. What a beautiful card for any occasion and that I know I would be very pleased to put in a frame as a piece of art decor as opposed to being "just a card" which I use in the losiest sense of the words. Sue we don't mind what collection you choose to show as all your cards are WOW's to us because they are truly fantastic. So glad your mum Jill had a wonderful birthday and all the more special in that you make sure you are there on her special day. Her friends at her morning breakfast club really look after her well in your absence don't they.
Well folks at Casa Cala ni Sith the moment I am busy papering and still trying to pack up mums things for the various places as I can't obviously take all her things. I called in Marie Curie to come and take away 21 boxes of ornaments, plates and other things and that is just some of it, I still have a lot more to go through though and pack up and get to new homes that need it so I shall say good bye the now from breezy Glenochil and sending hugs to all my Angels that are both on blog at the moment and not, sending wee prayers up for those that need them
Love and crafty hugs
Norah ( Glenochil)

Helloooo Sue and the Wilsonettes! Oh! I love this card with all the beautiful pastel coloured flowers and foliage. The black really makes it pop all over! Stunning! When I met you at Ally Pally (I was a bit awe struck!) my husband took photographs of every beautiful card that you made. They are now one click away! I love the photograph of you and your mom. She looks amazing! Beautiful photograph of you both and so clear to see how much you love each other. Plus it would have terrible to have wasted any of the cake! Lol! xx hope you're having a rest now after your marathon show x Gorgeous dies and cards! xx "Thank you" xx Sending love and hugs to you Sue, your family and all the Wilsonettes that need one today xx Love Karen xx

Wheely Bad said...

Hi Sue

Firstly, thank you for sending us that bank holiday sunshine I asked for! :-)

What a lovely picture of you and mom. You are very alike- The apple never falls far from the tree! She looks amazing and if I didn't know her age I'd never guess at 92! Hugs to you both x

I remember this card, the multicolour flowers are so striking. I think a backtrack through earlier releases unseen cards is a great idea. Might stir up some mash ups of earlier and later releases.

Must wrap up now. I have had a pair levers made for me to make using my sewing machines foot pedal with my arm easier. It needs a good test in the next few days so I must go and choose a quick project to whizz up and prepare for it.

Have a lovely bank holiday everyone, hugs to you all - loads extra if you need them,
