Finishing Touches

Hi bloggers!  Day five and the final day of the Spring Die Blog Launch.  It is the Finishing Touches range today, an ever popular category within the die line.  First up is the new Foldover Flowers.  I love this die, it is another one that doesn't look like much but when you see what it can do, you will be amazed!  I specifically designed it to be used with felt, but you can also use paper and lightweight card to make the flowers as well.  Cut it, fold it over and glue the edges, then roll for the perfect felt flower.  You can see just look how lovely it comes out  on the sample shown here.  It comes in two sizes (the largest one is shown here) for true versatility.  The new Maidenhair Fern die provides a lovely detail to your floral elements.  I am sure it will be a real go to die in your crafty arsenal.  Leave me a comment to be included in the drawing and join me back here at noon for the next blog post.  All for now, Sue x

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Sunday Smiles to you Sue and all from round the world. Its absolutly pouring down here too, but who cares when we have a beautiful little flower and fern for the Finishing Touches today and cant wait to see the rest ! This plain looking strip of metal looks just like that but wait and see the end result, the lady that owns our craft shop cut one and made a sample - ooooooh. I have a feeling it may still be a bit tricky for me to feel and roll, but hey just one maybe not die out of 30, cant be bad.
Hope you all have a good day and that the weather is better where you are today, especially over the big cold pond.
Love to all.

Hi Sue, I love the card, but have great difficulty making the felt flowers, I can't seem to get the glue to stay stuck. The ferns die is a must for my stash

June said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, I was so, so pleased to see the fold over die, I have loads of felt which is just taking up space, I can now make as many flowers as I like, well if I get the die that is. I also like the maidenhair leaves such a beautiful name and will add a different view to all my flowers.

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

Val Jones said...

Morning Sue. WOW. This is a stunning card. I love the fold over flower die it look's like a pom pom and it come's in two size's which will be great to sit and make a bunch of them while you are sitting watching tv and you can never have to many flower's lol. The fern die is lovely but then again i think your hole range of finishing touches are fantastic. Will be back at noon to see what you have done with the remaining die's.
Take care everyone as the weather is horrible here.
Best Wishes.

Hi Sue,
The felt flower is perfect for lots of projects and being available in two sizes is even better. If you cut off one side you can make a fringe.
I love the delicacy of the Maidenhair Fern.

Jan.moogie said...

I just adore the finishing touches range and reach for them time and time again as they really do finish off your cards. These are no exception and they're gorgeous and so looking forward to having a go with felt as love to add texture to my cards. What more can I say beautiful card made with beautiful dies. x

Ecco of Sheffield said...

Morning Sue
I cannot believe that it's the last day. This last week has gone by in a whirl. A whirl of fantastic new dies and such beautiful samples giving us just a taste of what can be done by your wonderful dies.
I admit that my first purchases arrived yesterday and I cannot wait to see what I can do with them.

It's absolutely pounding down here and I do not envy the riders in the last stage of the 'Tour de Yorkshire' which finishes in Leeds today. They might have had glorious weather last July but will definitely see the worst today. Good luck and stay safe to all the riders.

To all in pain and suffering today I hope your day gets better. To everyone please take care and stay safe.
See you at 12.00noon.
Janet x

MRS DUCK said...

Good morning Sue and everyone
Terrific card on this grey morning and its persisting down! I don't do felt (don't like the feel of it) but can see it would be useful with other materials.
The fern is pretty and would earn its place in my craft room.
Have a great day

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
You've done it again! The flower die is really clever. I looked at it prior to the launch and didn't really understand it,but, now I've seen it " in action", it's really lovely. I can see it being used over and over again. The fern is fabulous too. It's a horrible day here in the North East, so it looks like the ironing will be calling, but then I might get the chance to do some crafting as I'm not going to the hospice today.
Hope everyone has as good a day as they can, love and hugs to you all, Alison xx

Chris Curry said...

What a beautiful card,a lovely delicate colour. What a great idea for a flower die Sue, I think the fern is maybe my favourite though. Thank you.Xx

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, How very effective this die looks, I was wondering how this die worked !!! I'm loving the fern die too, it looks really delicate.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

I think we've all seen you cut this foldover flower by hand and then wondered if we could get the same result - well, now we can!...so thank you for this one, it's a perfect addition to the Finishing Touches range, especially as it comes in two sizes - and the Maidenhair Fern isn't too shabby either...lol...another must have for me as I love anything leafy or frilly to add to the embellies on my cards.

Fabulous card, the flower die is brilliant x

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Hi Sue

As you say don't always dismiss what it looks like on the hangar! The fold over flower die I wasn't too sure about, but now having seen the sample well... another one to add to the want list. Have already ordered the maidenhair as I love, love, love the foliage dies you bring.

This card is stunning (getting bored using the word but can't be helped when its the truth)! The peachy colour sets it off beautifully. As commented on previous posts you have thoroughly spoiled us with this launch and each one seems to surpass the previous, which is difficult when they are all gorgeous.

Joanna Dickson said...

It's a grey and very wet day in Blackpool. At least your cards give me something to smile about.
This is a lovely one to start today. Love the peach colouring. I'm trying to sit on my hands as I'm at the GBCF at the end of the month, but I've got to say as each day's reveals come along its getting harder and harder.

Hi Sue
Absolutely love this card. Everything about it is just perfect.
I knew that the finishing touches were just going to be gorgeous (as always). You always manage to make them so perfectly delicate.
You are a genius.

Good Morning Sue and everyone
I saw these dies on a web site and wondered how it would be used
Well like June I have loads of felt stuck in a box so I might have to treat myself to these dies
Hope everyone is enjoying the bank holiday
Good luck everyone in the draw
Take Care all

Hi Sue
.....well more lovely dies....!!! To be fair I've never used anything like the die for the felt flower....it looks a tad confusing to me, but I'm sure it's the sort of thing that once you've seen it and used it, it would be great!!! After all I do trust you!!!!
Love

Hi Sue, a beautiful card and the fold-over flower makes a real statement, it is beautiful. A maidenhair fern die has got to find a way to come and live with me. I love all of the leaves/fronds that you have designed.

Pouring with rain here also and I need the light on to see the keyboard but it won't stop me crafting when I have posted this.

The finishing touches dies are always what make cards stand out as special in my opinion. These are no exception. Beautiful card too.

I loved what I saw this morning. The new die is so different from what I remember about how you taught us to make a similar flower by hand rolling the glued felt that had been snipped. Card is lovely!

Such a perfect card Sue, and I love the flower. I've seen you make those a number of times on TV, but how much easier to make with a die!

Hello Sue and all

Lovely Card. I do like the foldover flower but I have to have the Maidenhair Fern. I can imagine it will look lovely when cut. Thank you for sharing.

Best wishes.

Morning Sue
It's a very wet and dull day in Newcastle at the moment, but I must say your card really brightened me up. I just don't know how you come up with so many ideas. The flower looks gorgeous. I have watched you make a similar flower on youtube but you made it manually, to come up with a die for this flower is amazing.
Regards
Joan from Newcastle

Roisin said...
