Finishing Touches


Hello all!  I have a new concept to introduce to you here in this post.  These are called Buckle Bars.  There are two designs, the Delicate Filigree Buckle Bar and the Scalloped Lattice Buckle Bar.  You need to cut two of them and one end will slip into the other end to create a pretty buckle. Cut four of them and make a stunning frame.   As shown in this sample, they make a beautiful border on cards.  I have other samples to show you several other ideas for them as well.  A bit different, but oh so useful you will see.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of this idea.  Day four has come to a close, but there is still one more day full of dies for your approval.  I hope you can join me at 6am for the start of our final blog launch day.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue - these buckle dies are so different and so clever. It looks like lace and the effect with the Gemini dies looks so feminine. Think these will come in so useful. I'm just amazed at how many ideas you keep coming up with! Thank you for another great day. Best wishes

Hi Sue,
The concept is intriguing, I'm waiting to see what else you've done with them. When I looked at them in the "shop" I wasn't sure how to use them but I'm getting the gist..
Absolutely beautiful card, thank you so much for our day of fab dies and cards.

Wheely Bad said...

Hi Sue

Ahhhh... I get it now!

I thought they'd look good in rows, and a few other configurations. These'd be great as napkin rings at a wedding or Christmas dinner too! They're ever so pretty. Very tempted as I'm sure I could do all sorts with these.

Tracy, will be thinking of you tomorrow xxx Melody and Molly, hope Francis is a step closer at least to getting home xxx

Have a lovely evening everyone. Hugs to Sue, Mom and all of the Wilsonettes, plenty extra hugs if they're needed xxx

sued99 said...

Lovely idea. Such a pretty card to show them off.

Sandra said...

Good afternoon Sue,
We were wondering how this would work, now I get it, what an absolute genius idea Sue, I can see it being used in so many ways,
Like handbag handles or the buckle part as the clasp on the front of your bag, Lacey edges, borders, frames!!
You can so tell that your dies are designed by a genius crafter!
Hugs
Sandra xxxx

NancyR said...

When I first saw these I will admit I was scratching my head, but now I see how they are used they are wonderful! So many different things that can be done, including using just the part between the "buckles". Great idea, Sue!

Norah McPhee said...

hello Sue,
I was just thinking that your card makes a pretty flapper girl dress and as these ladies weren't as endowed as their modern counter parts and more straight up and down your card is perfect for the period but made in such beautiful colours that would have looked lovely at that period in time. Thank you for two more inspirational dies to get our brains thinking
love and crafty hugs

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Hi again lovely Sue and the fantabulous Wilsonettes!

Please disregard my last post because this particular duo of die delights has leapfrogged into pole position on my wish lust(Rebecca , I am officially renaming list to lust after your genius faux pas!).
I lurve buckle designs, I have used them numerous times on my scrapbooking pages, And I cannot wait to see your own unique interpretations and uses for them...how naughty to tease us with the merest suggestion of the delights to come:-)
Whilst I always have a sneaky peek at your new dies before the official launch, I don't like to rush into any decisions on my faves until I have seen your accompanying cards, and I am never disappointed- if anything, there are usually one or two that don't immediately jump out and slap me in the face upon initial inspection, however all this changes when you show us your vision of their uses. I can assure you that I have never encountered a die set that I haven't yearned for immediately and been prepared to go to any lengths, legal or otherwise, to acquire them quick smart .
I meet each launch with childish wonderment at the delights on show, excited by their endless possibilities.....then reality bites and I remember that I rarely have custody of our credit card, only strictly supervised access, so I can't fill my proverbial basket with your goodies as quickly as I would like:-( This time of year brings with it stricter guidelines on my access as dies are deemed to be non essential fripperies!!??! Can you believe it? They are essential to the overall health and mental well being and as such have to be acquired in vast numbers at regular intervals!....try persuading the mentally well adjusted of their beneficial qualities is a task In itself and I dream of a day when money is no object and I have a craftroom as big as a barn to accommodate my fetish:-)
I would be feeling supremely depressed if it wasn't for this launch, the weather is chronic in Stirling and I haven't seen the Ochils in days:-( perfect crafting weather if I'd had a minute to myself but no, I had to have an emergency appointment at the GP cos my wounds have become infected- thought I'd been feeling a bit iffy for a couple of days, but all is good, on antibiotics now so onward and upward!
Sam, lovely to have you back!
Tracy, you lucky lady, a hubby who willingly takes you to a craft store is one in a million...just hope he put his hand in his pocket:-)there's no harm in milking your situation just a little after all ,as I said before, it's therapeutic:-) best of luck with tomorrow honeyxxx
Yvonne, I echo others concerns about your delicate constitution, you need to keep your strength up if you are going to assist me in locating that elusive entity Father Christmas, he's a slippery character and has been ignoring all of my calls, texts and letters:-(
I'm having a bit of brain freeze after reading all of the posts so apologies if I haven't included you in my thoughts.big hugs to all my blog buddies, especially Beth, Theresa, Maria , Wheely Bad, Jan, Saba and co, hope you are all well and enjoying our Suefestxx

Hugs,

Laine1972xxxx

The card is very pretty.
Looking forward to the final reveal.

Hello again Sue,
Beautiful card, I have been waiting to see these dies in action, they are so pretty and look fabulous used as a border. Think they would look amazing as a handle on an "Izzy Bag!"
Love and hugs

Hi Sue
Wow, such a beautiful stunning card & love every design element about it.
These buckle dies are such an ingenious design & love the way you have used them as a border which looks amazing.
Can't wait to see what other amazing designs you make Sue using the buckle dies as they're so different.

Hi Sue and all
I have to admit when I first saw this die I thought what could you do with this, I should have trusted you more Sue, your usual versatility and style of course. Beautiful card and many ideas starting to happen, great addition to the collection

Was't sure about these buckle dies when I saw the design on the packet, didn't think they would be for me, but after seeing this gorgeous card and the way you have used them, I think these dies have risen up the list of wanted dies. Looking forward to seeing more cards using them.

Love the card and having seen how these dies work I really like them.
They are going to be so useful, you are so clever coming up with these and have not seen
any dies like this.
You are so clever for thinking these ones up.

Evening Sue
Oh my goodness - how ingenious and beautifully intricate these Buckle Bars are. I was so intrigued when I saw these and puzzled. It has now all become clear and wow they are stunning. Of course they are on my wish/want/need/got to have list, along with all of your new dies, and all the dies from your previous launches which I do not own yet. It is a very long list.
I am excited to see what beauties you have in store for us tomorrow but saddened that it will be the final day. It has been such a delight and welcome distraction having so many masterpieces to enjoy. Thank you so much Sue x
My MIL had an appointment with the GP tis morning - or so she thought. When she turned up with her daughter they had the wrong day - it's tomorrow. Glad to say she has not lost her sense of humour - we did laugh.
Thank you for all your good wishes for her recovery and thank you for your concern about me. I am taking it easy I promise. I am 'baby sitting' on Wednesday. Sis in law is working so is going to bring her mum here in the morning for a few hours and then her other half will collect her when he finishes work. She enjoys mindless tv more than anyone I know so my job will be easy.
Well had a lovely evening. Jake came in from work having bought the box set containing every single episode of Only Fools and Horses. He cooked us ham egg and chips for tea (yum) and we ate it whilst being entertained with the hilarious antics of Del Boy and Rodney. No matter how many times I watch it just does not fail to have the boys and me roaring with laughter. It is rare for us to watch anything altogether that we all thoroughly enjoy. Then there was I'm a Celebrity. Oh joy - how I love Ant and Dec. Again I was honoured to be in the presence of both of my son's for the entire programme. Not only did Jake cook tea but George cleared up and sorted out the dishes but Jake had bought chocolate. What more could a mother want (except for all Sue's dies). Lol x
I really think if I could persuade the boys to offer their services to anyone who would appreciate a bit of eye candy helping out round the house we could make a fortune. I say we, because obviously they would need a manager to organise the bookings (that would be me), and I would have to take my cut of the takings.I am convinced that there must be a market out there for this kind of thing. Maybe I should get my business plan drawn up and have words with Lord Sugar x
TRACY - you are so good. I would have had to buy everything just because Sue designed them - will be thinking of you tomorrow x
LAINE - you poor thing. Never mind me resting up - think you should try and follow your own advice. I have heard rumours that Santa was last seen entering a side entrance of a Harley Street Plastic Surgeon. He really is going to great lengths to avoid us. I can't understand anyone not wanting to spend time with us x
THERESA - you are so right when you say anything tastes better when made by someone else. My egg and chips was delicious!! And then not having to clear up was the icing on the cake x
Off to bed - worn out but it is a happy worn out after the frivolity and raucous laughter with my gorgeous boys. Can't wait to see what our glorious leader has in store for us tomorrow. Take care everyone
Crafty hugs
Yvonne

Lovely card, Sue. These dies are very interesting...
Very clever concept. I would also use them as a belly
band on a gate fold card and... and... - You really
get our small grey cells spinning!

Glennis said...

What a brilliant idea - it looks great on the card
