Portuguese Collection

Welcome back crafters!!  Day three of the Spring die release blog launch.  Today showcases the new Portuguese Collection.  We have the beautiful Porto die (shown here) and the Portuguese Border, corner and tag die set up on offer to win with this blog post.  Shown with the Canadian border, you can see how well the dies from the two collections will work together to give you outstanding results.  Like the Canadian Collection, the Portuguese dies all come with separate cutting edges and decorative inserts.  The centre designs in each shape have been paired up to give you beautiful matting and layering capabilities, while the outside shaped design is quite different.  If you would like the chance to win either of these two dies, just leave me a comment.  While you can (and should) comment on each and every blog post for a chance to win, only one comment per  post is allowed, however.  Duplicate posts will be removed before the drawing takes place (it's only fair that way!)  The next blog post is scheduled for 12 noon, don't be late! LOL  All for now, Sue x

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Happy Friday Sue and all Wilsonettes. Oh how pretty. Like a beautiful tiara, this border is a certain 'go to' die. I really cant get over just how stunning this new collection is. How on earth are you going to better this whole collection beats me. I stood catching flies when I saw them all piled up in the shop yesterday, all ready to be displayed, they are all truely incredible. And for those that dont read any other posts and missed mine yesterday, on the back of each package it gives you a few more bits of inspiration on how to use each die, thank you Sue : )
Day 3 and a magnificant start to the day, anyone would be thrilled to receive a card like this. Have another beautiful day Sue,hope you get chance to make more memories today inbetween crafting, and any other work that is lined up for you whilst in FL !
I so look forward to the next post and what you have instore for us hungry Wilsonettes lol. I have to say two metal strips... It has to be less fiddly and frustrating for my stubby stupid little fingers ? ! Right Sue ?
Sending love you and Jill.

Wow,wow,wow! these dies keep getting better & better!

CraftySuetoo said...

Good morning Sue. I'm so pleased that I have resisted looking on other websites to see what dies were in your launch because they have so much more impact when you can see how they can be used. I'm totally in love with your new border sets, they are so versatile with the separate cutting edge. Sue xxx

Carolsmith80. said...

Sue yet another stunning range your making it very hard to choose .

Breezes said...

As I live in Portugal these dies are an absolute must ! They truly reflect the traditional patterns and swirls inherent in Portuguese culture. Can't wait to start making cards in the traditional bright colours too !

Hugs,

Its quite unbelievable just how many cards you produce. You have such a busy schedule yet you produce such quantities of cards. How do you do it? It takes me ages to create a card yet you can do it in minutes. Respect. Yet more gorgeous dies.

Micki said...

This is probably a really silly question but here goes. I've noticed that in the UK you make lots of your cards 8 x 8. This is a new size for me here in the USA. It appears in tutorials that there is only the front side of the card with no second piece to open up and write your sentiment on and sign it. Is this correct? If it does have a backside, what size paper do you use for it? 12 x 12 isn't large enough. Do you use two separate pieces of 8 x 8 card and attach them at the fold somehow? I've also noticed this when they do demos on Create and Craft. I really love the 8 x 8 size and want to make some that size, but not sure about this bit. Thanks for any information.

Sandra said...

Good Morning Sue & friends,
I would like to say a special hello and welcome to all of the new viewers of this amazing blog, we would absolutely love it if you could pop in and enjoy the daily fun, after all the more the merrier, thank you for supporting Our Sue on her a Spring Launch! Xx
Sue this Portuguese Collection is lovely, that border die looks like it has a 'swag' detail to it, so pretty!
You must feel Like a proud Mum, you have really done yourself proud!
Congratulations xxxx

A Happercrafter6 said...

Re the above comment (Micki)- I shall be interested in Sue's or anyone's response as I have often wondered the same. 8 x 8 constitutes a large card to post in the UK and, whereas for some cards you don't mind, it becomes expensive for all. Most of mine need posting, not hand delivery. I know Sue only produces card fronts at demos or workshops ( been on one with her).
These dies are lovely, especially the border.

Lynne Mills said...

It is so hard to choose which collection I like the best as they are all beautiful. The border in the Portuguese collection reminds me of fancy curtain swags, just gorgeous. Lol lynne m & dirty demon destructive dastardly doggie divas x x x ( in the garden digging escape tunnels yet again)

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. This is another gorgeous card, I love all of the dies you have used on it. Still no chance of choosing just one as a favourite though!
Welcome to all of the lucky new people who have found your wonderful daily blog : )
Sending my usual daily hugs to everyone. Take care xx

Muriel Kelly said...

Hi Sue and all
what a beautiful delicate collection and the card focal point is gorgeous of course the Canada border is too. Just waiting now for all of the release to decide where to start- noticed JS has run out of some already, I guess that will be a guide lol !!
Muriel x

Mrs B said...

Micki, Sue does only, usually, make non opening cards but if you want to you can just cut another 8x8 piece but with about an extra 1/2" lip on one end so that you can join the two pieces together. I hope that 1) this makes sense 2) it helps. If not then if you email Sue and she will get back to you with an answer. Take care. Mrs B

carol edwards said...

Hi Sue gorgeous card using wonderful dies. So very pretty and flouncy x

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
Where do I start? The card and dies used are so stunning what a difficult decision for us to make about which set to choose. I cannot choose a favourite because I love them all, I think Sue that this launch is THE BEST. My Noble and Configuration sets arrived from SET yesterday and it's killing me, I can't use them because I've been told not to use my arm and to rest it completely so I can only look at the them lol.
Hugs x

June said...

Morning Sue, and all Wilsonettes, another beautiful collection, I would love to win one of these as I know everyone else does, I hope that all these new bloggers who are visiting this week will continue to support your blog, it is the highlight of my day as it is to your regulars, we don't just come on here to win a prize but to see the wonderful creations you make, learn so many techniques and share out experiences with you, it is like our own little family of crafters with you at the helm. OK rant over, what I love about these collections is the lovely names you give them and the meanings of them e.g. the names of the square from the new York collection was a combination of you and your daughter so happy memories there, I wonder why these new ones names came from, haha!!!.

I am looking forward to the 12 pictures with great excitement.

Happy May day everyone, stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Good Morning Sue, you brighten up my days with your blog and all of these gorgeous cards and the beautiful dies. It's certainly getting me through the rough time at the moment with my back in spasm. I have managed to get my husband to set up a corner of the room where I can reach most of my craft stuff and using a lap tray have managed to make one card a day but it helps, crafting is therapy saves me wallowing in misery.
I just love everything you do

Good morning Sue and Wilsonettes,
If i have got this right i think you have done some letter pressing in this mornings little Gem, Sue. I shall wait for the tutorial to see if i am right or not, as with the gold mica powder? it really give the background a beautiful look. Lovely design on top making up the focal piece but this will need to wait for a wee while on pennies to buy. Thank you Sue for another WOW in both card and the stunning dies that made it happen.

Sue makes them to demonstrate the dies and give us inspiration, we take that and put our own spin on it. Look at some of the other blogs, especially from Sue's regular followers. The you will see lots of other sizes and ways of using them, and how thy mix well with other craft items you like to use.
Cheers

Hi Sue and everyone

Wow, what lovely dies. The card is beautiful too, love the border. Looks like a bit of paper grouting going on too with the bed of roses embossing folder.

I agree about the Portuguese border looking like swag curtains. It reminds me of the arge fancy net curtain/blind that we bought from the sellers of our first house for an extortionate price in the Eighties.

More tough decisions regarding the dies again Sue, definitely spoilt for choice.

Love Helen xxx

Well said Janice Wallace. I use the dies for all sorts of shapes and sizes of card. They do work really well with 8 x 8 cards though, as obviously you have more room to play with! Yet another wonderful card this morning. Loving the new dies!

Don't know how you just keep them coming and always give such inspiration. See you at mid day till then have a good morning, LOL Eridony.

Oh Sue, how much more gorgeousness can we take? Your dies are so versatile, I spy 3 different sets in this card and they all match beautifully.
I thought Canada was my fave but now I think I'm drifting over to Portugal lol.
Micki - I don't know if it helps but I buy 8x8 card blanks with envelopes and use them as my base layer, if you can get them in the US that might be worth a try.
Blessings to all - Deb C xx
