Frames and Tags

Good morning all!  I haven't done any  country collections this time around, but I have done a few single frames (just wanted to mix it up a bit and keep you on your toes! LOL)  First up is the Heraldic Frame, shown here.  I love the way that this die set is equally at home with a girlie pink or a masculine based background.  As always, it has been designed with separate cutting edges to maximise versatility.  The Delicate Garden Frame is very detailed and would not allow for a separate cutting edge, but I have included an outer cut die to use for matting if desired.  The extra flowers match up with those in the design for layering in different colours too.  A bit more room inside the middle of the die gave me the option of including some small butterflies.  What's a garden without some butterflies? LOL  I really love both of these and they have been a real go to for many of my cards, I hope you like them too.  A quick comment is all you need to be entered in the drawing.  The next post is scheduled for 12 noon.   All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, you never cease to amaze me with your beautiful dies and what you can do with them, this die looks stunning on the card and as you say can be used for a manly card too. Got to get this one.

Still having problems trying to comment on anyone else's blog, not sure what to do.

Enjoy Friday, stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Elizabeth Beal said...

Hi Sue & Lovely Wilsonettes...Please do not worry my friends if you do not see a comment from me on each of Sues breathtaking 4 day launch, although very fatigued I am doing okay I just had some money recently reimbursed to me, for an item that was no longer available, so guess what I used it for; Lol, so as stated in my comment (where I kindly asked Sue NOT TO include my name for the PIERCED NOBLE DIES) I will only comment on the dies I haven’t pulled out of the hat. Last night I had an urge (now now girls; Lol) to write a poem instead of commenting (please include me in this draw Sue x) not my best of poems but I hope it says to Sue how much & what she means to us; hope you like it & I sincerely hope that you are all keeping well x x x

An ode to Honour Our Sue

Oh what wondrous treasures lay daily before our hopeful eyes?
The amazing and exceptional talent in this lady lies,
The pearls and bling from the glistening snow
Tutorials, videos, just so we have the know,
The gilding flakes that float graceful through the air
Peonies & Roses made with elegance and flair,
The dazzling stick pins and stylish bows to delight
The sticky two sided and card, black through to white,
The snip of a die cut and a twist here and there
Every step of her masterpiece created with care,
An abundance of cutting dies that roll out our senses
Each work of art our desiring heart caresses,
The splendored, beauteous designs our crafty friend makes
A phenomenal breathless gasp is all that it takes
To stimulate and inspire us to create a gift of our own
Through your marvellous blog OUR talents & friendships have grown
And if our ability should fail us you’d be there as our guide
Our empty thoughts banished and restored thus our pride
To our cherished friend Sue this is truly sent with love
For you are a precious gift sent from the heavens above
Long may you reign as our queen of them all?
For in our hearts you linger enraptured and enthralled.
Written by Beth B & sent with Love ‘n’ (((HUGS))) x x x

Hi Sue. Hopefully my 2nd attempt won't disappear into cyber space !

What an amazing start to another launch day. These dies had me catching flies when I first saw them a few weeks ago, they are absolutely gorgeous. I'm constantly being reminded of the statement I made some months ago " I can't buy any new dies until I've caught up with all the other dies - French, Spanish, Italian, Canadian, Caribbean, Greek etc etc " So now I'm in a real predicament ! Oh well next week will keep me away from craft stores and wifi so I can't even do a sneaky online order ! Hohum : (
I'm so looking forward to the next card and dies Sue.
So I wish you a happy day, and drink in all the wonderful compliments you so deserve.

Anne Crawford said...

Wow Sue, I love how this card is a bit of an optical illusion ! I have looked at it closely but still haven't worked out exactly which bit is on top of which? A great die for men or women's cards , I have been fascinated as to how the garden die would be used, as you have now explained the little flowers embellish the die, it sounds delightful and looks wonderful as a background .
Hugs to all xo

sued99 said...

Love both of these sets but most especially the butterfly one. Looking forward to seeing how you use this one!

To be honest at first sight the Heraldic Frame wasn´t so interesting for me but seeing it on your card it´s absolutely fantastic.
Can´t wait seeing a card made by you with the Garden Frame and the butterflies. This Frame is incredible delicate.

Yvonne G said...

Morning Sue
Oh wow. Just spectacular. I was so excited when I saw these and now that I have seen them 'in the flesh' I am even more excited. They are absolutely beautiful and I am sure we can forgive you for not giving us more countries.
I have really found my spirits lifted over the last couple of days during your launch. I find that your wonderful blog is such a heart-warming sanctuary. This may sound like an over the top statement but I know that there are so many people who will agree with me.
I do hope you don't get fed up with us singing your praises but you are so deserving of all the praise that I for one want to bestow upon you.
Beth B - brilliant 'ode'. That fatigue gets about a bit doesn't it. Rest up girl - not much more you can do but you have this wonderful launch to keep you company and then we have our great leader gracing our screens tomorrow. A good dose of Sue - just what we need. Sending love and hugs x
Alison - hope hubby is ok. Is he a typical male when it comes to recovery? x
Lorraine - who are you trying to kid? Red is so obviously your colour. The Krankies - oh how sad that you even mention them let alone pay tribute. You will be quoting Orville next x
I didn't see the comment you are referring to - I just don't get it. Why would someone want to bring such negativity to such a warm and welcoming 'place'. Enough said!!
Having said that - do you think they were referring to us Thelma? x
Sandy - I agree. Cheering oneself up is very important. Hope the new knee is well. You do realise that you will need to cheer yourself up quite a bit over the next few weeks - just to keep you sane really due to the fact that you will be acting as auxiliary, nurse, matron and doctor. Go girl - treat yourself x
Sue - hope op goes well. Love and hugs x
That's all for now. Little fragile today so off to rest with the alarm set for 12. Have a lovely morning everyone
Crafty hugs

P.S. Sue - have I told you lately that I love you? These dies need a good home and I promise I would give them my undivided attention x

Diane said...

Hi Sue

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and the Wilsonettes,
What a beautiful start to the day Sue with your beautiful card so pretty done in the pink but can understand that it could equally be for a man as it is not overtly girlie looking but boy can it be made really girlie. Now as for your other die the DELICATE GARDEN, this is going to be the very first one that i buy from this collection as it is looking through mum's garden into her little hidey place that no one could see into. This die is for me is just calling out to be made into one of those tunnel cards so that it can take me back in my mind to watching mum turn a wilderness into a place of tranquilty and beauty. Sorry Sue, me off on my ramblings again but that is what this die from the first minute i seen it takes me to. THank you Sue for bringing such wonderful dies to us.
This last few days has been lovely up here in the central belt of Scotland witth the trees starting to turn and get their autumn bloomage on them and the heather coming into full bloom. All i can here at the moment is the birds twittering their little hearts out flying in and out of their nests which is in the honeysuckle sprawling mass around next doors back door.
Take care everyone
Love and crafty hugs

Hi Sue. WOW, WOW, WOW !!! This card is absolutely stunning Sue !! Your heraldic Square dies are AMAZING !!! So very elegant and Regal looking. I really love your card. It looks so very posh.

Just like others have said, you can never have to many butterflies, or flowers too !! I think the garden frame die set is one of your most delicate and most beautiful dies yet !! As always Sue, I just could not choose between the two so they are both going on my wish list !! Thank you so much for everything. Sending you lots of love and hugs today Sue from Tres x x x

Beth B, I just LOVE the ode/ poem for Sue that you have written. It is fab !! You are very talented. Thanks for sharing it with everyone. I totally agree with everything you have written. I bet you are very clever at writing lovely poems inside your cards for family and friends. Thats the part I stuggle with the most !! Sending you lots of love and hugs today from Tres x x x

Sending lots of love to everyone today from Tres x x x

Predictive text took over there. It should read - These Dies LOL

Hello Sue.

Gorgeous, just wow. The Delicate Garden is so pretty and as you say the Heraldic Frame will be great for male cards. Thanks for sharing.

Best wishes

Erica said...

Both these dies are lovely but of the two I have to say the heraldic is my favourite and a must but will I be able to resist the garden frame? Some how I think not. Will be back for the mid day post till then LOL Happy Wye Crafter

Another stunner of a card Sue! I am immediately drawn to the Heraldic Square set. In fact I think I noticed the center of it in an earlier card and wondered where it came from. It sings to me for reasons I don't fully understand. The song is sweet and draws me in - this set is another must have for me! The sooner the better! It is definitely my favorite thus far (and that's saying a lot!) Where are these "pre-order" opportunities coming from? I want in!
I'm sure as soon as I see the delicate garden frame "in action", I'll be drooling over it as well.
Beth, I kid you not- over the last couple of days I've been tossing around in my head the idea to write a poem for the blog. Thank goodness I haven't had any time to try to put one together because no matter what it was, it would have been an embarrassment compared to the clever one you wrote! Thank you so much for sharing it!
Saba-you are indeed a sleuth of great talent!!! Perhaps I'll have to start calling you Sherlock? No. Saba is too beautiful a name to replace. Saba the Sleuth? Saba the Sleuth of Cypress? (Am I remembering your home correctly?) You do deserve a prize! Perhaps that could be an occasional game on the blog! "Name That Die!" You spent your 3 am hour well! For some reason I don't have the Greek border set, though I have the background (my first Sue Wilson die purchase!) and the Santorini (my 2nd purchase - would have been my 1st, but store was out of it). And I have the Rhodes. All of which I love - plus it's because of them I searched out this blog! Another reason to love the Greek set!
Cant wait to catch up on all the comments over the last few days. So much fun with too little a time. I miss my friends!
On that note, & the fact that it's 3 am again and I have to get some sleep before returning to work (fooey!) in a few short hours, I shall bid you all adieu! Rebecca in Colorado

Dawn Holben said...

Wow stunning card and I love both of these dies, especially the garden one.
I fell in love with that one as soon as I saw a preview of it.

Hi Sue,

More stunning dies - really like the garden frame, very pretty. Lovely card too, as always.

Beth: your "ode to Sue" is great and so very true.

I am having trouble posting comments so just hope this one doesn't disappear into cyberspace!

Lesley Griffiths said...

Loved the garden frame as soon as I first saw it so it's on pre-order already. I wasn't sure from seeing the heraldic package but it is now on my wish list as it will work well for those pesky man cards. Oh and a lovely card, Sue.
Happy Days,

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Top of the morning to you lovely Sue and the fab Wilsonettes!

Oh how much do I LOVE these two dies....if only I was as eloquent as dearest Beth I would be able to put my emotions into prose but unfortunately I don't have the required talent with the English language...I bet your sentiments inside your cards are equally stunning Beth.
Anyway, back to this mornings dies, they have just shot to the top of my wish list, particularly the beautifully delicate garden die with the little butterfly and flower adornments- who doesn't love a butterfly...I even have a discreet butterfly tattoo!....the 3D effect will be spectacular and I cannot wait to see you sprinkle it with Sue fairy dust because your interpretation always brings your dies to life. I love the card showcasing the Heraldic Squares, it's very pretty and feminine but could also be utilised in a male card with suitable colour tones. I do hope that you have the time to absorb the accolades given by us all, how you remain so humble is a mystery, my head would be the size of a football pitch by now if I had even a smidgen of your talent:-)
Had a fitful nights sleep, partly in anticipation of today's delights and your show tomorrow but mainly because my dearest Darcey is up to her old tricks again- you know how she insists on her prawns being from M&S, well I had the audacity to use another supermarket brand so she refused to come home for her supper and bedtime. Normally I would be out in my pjs yet again(silk ones of course!) trying to coax her home but I decided to play hardball and just go to bed instead...that'll teach her I thought...did it heck! Every hour for the next three hours I tried and failed to tempt her home until at 3.15am she decided enough was enough and she'd had her fun. So I'm a bit bleary eyed now and maybe need a few injections of caffeine to get me motoring again.
Yvonne, I have a degree and do not need to quote Orville in retaliation to your jibes...and if my memory serves me correctly, only one of us has ever dared to use tarty red nail polish and it's certainly not me!
The bitchy comments made yesterday were, I believe, directed at us. My immediate reaction was incredulous laughter then the anger followed by self doubt crept in. Humour is my armour, I use it to cope with life's twists and turns but if I ever thought that I had offended or angered anyone I would be mortified. Maybe I do fly close to the sun now and again but I trust that I will be put in my place by the lovely ladies of this blog who I count on as friends. What's wrong with keeping in touch with your cheeky side in the face of adversity I wonder?
I know that I enjoy the lighthearted banter and you ladies brighten up my dayxxxx
Looking forward to 12 pm, take care everyonexxxx

Love and crafty hugs,


Maureen Killen said...

Hello Sue, and all the ladies.
You have made it impossible for me to decide which of your dies I need the most, they are all so beautiful.
Beth B - what a poet, you are superb.
Yvonne G - sorry you are not too well today, take plenty of rest.
Norah - enjoy your hills today.
Everyone, have as good a day as you can.
Love Maureen xxx

Preciosos troqueles, son tan finos y delicados!!

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a lovely card and these two dies are both gorgeous. I love the girlie way you have used the Heraldic Square but I can equally see it being made very masculine in dark & metallic colours. The Delicate Garden Frame - what can I say about it other than WANT, WANT, WANT! It is beating even the striplets to the top of my list.

Snuffy Snoo said...
