Finishing Touches

Hi there my crafty friends!  The last day of our blog launch, but I have saved the Finishing Touches for you today.  First up are the Blushing Rose die set and the Bearded Pansy die set.  For those of you that love your floral elements on cards but want to keep the dimension to a minimum, these dies are for you.  They are beautifully detailed, but don't add any real height to your cards and projects.  Both floral sets come in an assortment of sizes and with matching leaves so you have everything you need to create stunning projects.  The Blushing Rose shown here is such a striking addition to any card and the Pansy set will be great for those gardeners amongst us!  I know that you will be reaching for these sets time and time again, I know that I did!   Just a reminder too, please feel free to "pin" any of the cards or dies that you like or share them with your friends on other social media sites.  I would love for you to help me spread the word about the new release!    Leave a comment and then be sure to check back at 12 noon for the next release.  You won't want to miss it!  Al for now, Sue x

Hi Sue,
Crafty way to add flowers! Fabulous . As we all say the height of some flowers means you can't post but these will help with that. They look better cut than on the page - they are stunnung - again!
Well done again!

Oooh how I love your finishing touches, Sue! Think these both a winner and hope you'll post a card with the pansy set in due course.
Melody, hope Francis does come home today but what a time to have a cold - know what it was like when Mr 'P' was on chemo, always anxious not to catch anything.
Tracy - thinking of you.

Lots of love from Patricia xx

Linda Graham said...

I congratulate you Sue on these dies,postage is expensive these days especially if the card has dimention so these will be great,thank you,Linda x

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, well what can I say about these new dies, words fail me, you have hit the nail on the head with the Rose die, especially if we want to make a beautiful card but are conscious of the postage costs, this fits the bill exactly, I so love roses and know that these dies will be used again and again by me. Good luck everyone.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Clare W said...

GM Sue. When I saw both these sets of dies I just had to have them! So please don't put me in the draw for these. Love the rose but can't wait to see what you can do with that pansy. Don't think I've ever seen a pansy die before. Love it.

Patricia Youdell said...

These two dies are beautiful and so different - as are the cards. It amazes me how you come up with such pretty and unique dies

Morning Sue. This is a beautiful card and these dies are stunning. I think both are a must have because they are so pretty and the fact they lie flat for postage. Cant wait to see what you have done with the pansy.
Take care everyone.

Stunning card & two brilliant due sets. I think they'll be so useful all year round. The rose would look fantastic on wedding or anniversary cards.


HeatherT said...

Hi Sue,
Beautiful roses, your card is beautiful and the dies will be so useful. I love flowers of all kinds but roses are so special and I received a beautiful bouquet this morning from my husband on our 31st wedding anniversary. I made a card for him using the die that I was fortunate to win from your last launch, and he was very happy with it. Good luck to everyone for the draw!
Thanks for sharing your beautiful creations,

I've learnt that with all your flower dies you can make so many different flowers as well.
Wonderful, thanks for sharing

Two beautiful die Sue. As already been said good for posting. JJxx

hettygarlick said...

Very lovely Sue and an excellent idea. I love the dimensional cards, but sadly they're not treated well in the postal system. They arrive with the 3d flowers, bows etc completely squashed flat. Even putting them in a box doesn't always help. I now save cards like that for people I can give them to by hand. Some flower dies that can be used "flat" will be so useful - and they're beautiful too!

Hi Sue,
Gorgeous card! Love the flower dies. I love making 3D flowers, but these are such a clever alternative - especially for posting or for when time is short. I hope one of your later cards features the pansies - one of my favourite flowers as they always seem to have a cheeky grin on their faces! Best wishes, Anne O (Epsom)

Love Rosemarie Fishlock x x

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
Love these flowers! And the card is beautiful.
These dies also lend themselves beautifully to decoupaging (I know that's strictly speaking not the correct term but I think people will know what I mean), so one can even get a sort of 3D look without adding too much to the height, keeping postage to a minimum.
Hugs, Rose

Looking forward to seeing more cards with these dies. They look great.

Tressa said...

A beautiful card. It is good to have dies that produce flat flowers that still give the feeling of texture and flow. I look forward to a video of showing their use in the near future. Perfect for those occasions when we want flowers on a card but need to rely on the postal service for delivery. Such a good idea, thank you.

Welsh Dors said...

Hi Sue
When I thought I had sufficient flower dies, along comes Sue Wilson's November launch. So pleased to see non dimensional flowers, sometimes on a small card layered flowers can look too bulky. I know I won't be able to resist these.

Sandie Braithwaite said...

Just about to make a card which will be similar but with your open and closed daisies. I would like to think it would turn put a little like yours, but I will keep on thinking. .... lol. What a lovely few days we are having.

Love2papercraft said...

Hello Sue & WW!
I'll start with the last offering for Monday...what a beautiful feminine & frilly card! So many pretty elements...I spy the Corvus & Emma as well. I want them all! No surprise there :o)
Now on to today's first offering...oohh la la! The roses and this card are soooo pretty! So many techniques to try...stained glass, glitter, paper piecing...oh yay! And I'm VERY eager to see the bearded pansies in full bloom, so to speak, guided by your green thumb Sue! They've already been added to my epic Wish Lust. You are so thoughtful Sue to consider all types of paper crafters (2D & 3D) in your design process. Thank you so much :o)
Laine, "non essential fripperies"? really? Now that hurts! I'm sorry you are subject to this abuse. I'm afraid it's a world-wide epidemic tho as I too have been shamed & deemed fund-less with regards to craft purchases. Is it not the season of giving? Aren't we also taught that in order to love others, we must first learn to love ourselves? I'm simply trying to model these teachings by giving myself love in the form of Sue Wilson dies! We are so misunderstood, you and I.
Maria, I do feel sorry for Santa that the Wilsonettes' lust lists contain items that are so heavy- especially when in the quantities we seek! It's too bad our hobby isn't based on feathers instead of metal dies & paper - that's some heavy stuff! Although, considering the sacrilege I wrote in the previous paragraph, I don't think Santa will be stopping by my house this Christmas lol!
ps-I feel your pain regarding 12 hour shifts -that's my life Tuesday thru Friday. Icky.
Yvonne G. I wonder if Fools and Horses is available on Netflix. I've never heard of it, but it sounds like lots of fun! Of course it is clear your joy in the evening stemmed from a place much deeper than any show :o)
Theresa, my Mum laughs because, to this day, I tell her no one makes cinnamon & sugar toast as good as she does. She used to think I was teasing her because she didn't cook much when I was growing up, but I'm not kidding! Even though it couldn't be simpler to make, hers is the best!
Well, just 2 more posts for this launch :( sad to have it end, but what a launch it has been! Aren't we all so lucky?! (Ok, maybe Santa's lower back and reindeer won't feel so lucky on December 26th). But we are lucky & blessed to have such inspiration from Sue! As it's back to my weekly grind after a sleep, I may not get to comment on the next 2 posts (or if so, it'll be short & sweet - "how refreshing" you say). But anyway, I'll bid my adieus now & wish good luck to all in the drawings.
Hugs to all xxx Rebecca in Colorado

Tracy Stitt said...

Hi sue.
Fab fab fab I love ma flowers. I love ur card the wee rose is just perfect. I'll have to get these as well for my collection although mine never look as good. Has that been a week of new dies already?

Thanks sue for the opportunity to win a set and for sharing ur amazing talent with us all. I dunno what I'd do without my sue fix everyday lol

Well ladies chemotherapy day has arrived!!
Well if they can get the line into my hand anyways. They said they would try but my veins aren't behaving with all the bloods tests etc that they've done on the one arm as they can't use the other. So might need a picc line inserted. That's another week to wait as I have to travel to Ayr hospital for that as they don't do it in cross house. Isn't that silly?? And crosshouse is a way bigger hospital too. Ah well what can u do?

Thanks for all ur well wishes it's really kept me going ladies so thanks from the bottom of my heart

Love to all plus hugs xx

Sue my Mum is going to love these dies as she is always so conscious of postage costs. Maybe I can wait for her to buy them and then borrow them. Her budget for craft goodies is much bigger than mine but sadly only because she is on her own now so doesn't have to cater to anyone else's needs.
I do cards that usually require a box as most of mine I can give personally but it would be fab to play with these. If I was lucky enough to win these then I would share with my fabulous Mum.
Hope today's chemo goes ahead Tracey, you must just want to get it done now.
Laine, hope the anti b's are working so you feel better.
Yvonne take it steady, your boy's sound wonderful.
Sorry memory fails me again. Love n hugs where needed

Hi Sue, a beautiful and elegant card. Your rose and pansy dies are beautiful and are on my 'must have' list.

Sue Foster said...

A beautiful finishing touch with both of these die sets. A definite must have!

Gorgeous card Sue!
I really like these dies as they are just that bit different. You really cant decide which dies you need until you see what Sue does with them as it always surprises me when I say I don't need them and then really want them after looking at Sues masterpieces.

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
I've been waiting for the Finishing Touches too!! What an excellent idea - less dimensional flowers which are easier for cards which need to be posted. Another great idea!
I love dimensional flowers but these would be very very useful too.
All the best today Tracey - hope you manage to get your treatment at Crosshouse!
Love to all,
Myra xxx

Hi Sue and everyone

Lovely card to start today's blog with. I really love making the dimensional flowers, but I can see how these would be good for keeping postage costs down.

Love Helen x

Hi, I just love these flowers they are a must the pansys are my favourite, they will last longer than the ones in my garden.x

Sassy said...

I have to say this card is a stunner! It's so elegant and the flowers are perfect! No worrying about needing a thick envelope or that the mail will damage the card. No extra postage either. I cannot wait to see how you use these dies to add the 'Finishing Touches' to your cards.

Good morning lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

Wonders will never cease, I'm managing to post am rather than late pm- this is the positive effect that your wonderful launch is having on my life Sue, I am motivated to comment before I have my bath etc and feel semi human again rather than getting the mundane out of the way first! And boy am I glad I popped by earlier today because the finishing touches are normally the highlight of any launch. You never disappoint, whilst in prefer a more dimensional flower I can't fail to see the usefulness of a two dimensional alternative for those of use that love floral accents but have to bear the British postal service in mind. This card showcases your new die perfectly, the flowers really pop and I can't wait to see your interpretation of the pansy because I don't recollect any other leading brands doing this particular flower.
Thankyou for your kind well wishes, my infection is getting worse before it gets better and is very tender but I'm on day two of my antibiotics and should see an improvement soon.
Tracy, you're in my thoughts today, do you have to travel to the Beatson in Glasgow for your treatment or can they do it locally? It will be a relief to finally get started I'm sure, even if it is tinged with trepidation, feel free to whinge when times get tough honey, we're here for youxxx
Yvonne, what a couple of gems your boys are, if only I was twenty years younger.....being able to cook and clean is a rarity in a man in my experience so you have raised them beautifully. Whilst I do appreciate a bit of Fools and Horses my own preference would be something more sarcastic in tone...what a surprise I hear you say.....such as Blackadder or Alan Partridge, they are wet your pants territory for me....good job I have a strong bladder unlike you my friend:-) Santa in Harley Street you say? Well, he's going to extreme lengths to escape our clutches, I mean, changing his entire appearance to foil us is a slight overreaction if you ask me.....perhaps our reputations precede us and Sue has warned him of our extremist practises in getting what we want. Perhaps he is just looking to lighten his load on Christmas Eve at our expense, by our own admittance we have been rather naughty again this year:-)
Rebecca, I hope Santa has a good chiropractor with the extensive lusts of the Wilsonettes blowing way out of proportion now, no wonder he has went into hiding, the elves have probably went on strike as a result of our demands! He could consider gift vouchers to a reputable craft site as an lighter alternative, I'm sure Rudolph and the elves would appreciate our concessionsxxx
Linda, make sure you really milk hubby's guilt, his folly couldn't have come at a better time for you:-)
Roll on midday, though I am a little sad that our Suefest will be drawing to a close soon, I could so get used to multiple posts each day.
Love and hugs to all my blog buddies, hope you feel better soon Melody and you get Francis back home where he belongsxxxx

Love and crafty hugs,


CraftyJo said...

I avoid flowers because of the extra height they add, these would solve that beautifully.

Yvonne G said...

Morning Sue
Just a quickie then I will catch upon comments in a little while.
Love the idea of these gorgeous flowers. Not only are they beautiful but practical as well. Will make posting cards so much cheaper. Thanks again Sue for this brilliant addition to your collection.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I have been waiting for these to appear as I fell in love with the rose straight away and it is one of the dies I am expecting to arrive soon (I hope). A beautiful card that has given me an idea for one I have to make so I really hope the dies come today. I adore pansies but as I couldn't get everything I wanted they have had to go on the list - hopefully they won't be there for too long :)

Heather - Congratulations to you and Mr T on your anniversary, hope you have a lovely day.

Tracy - I really hope they can get a line in and you don't have to wait another week.

Melody - fingers crossed Francis is home today. A horrible time to get a cold, maybe one or the other of you should wear a mask?

I think these would look nice decoupaged with a little bit of creasing and glitter. Thanks again Sue. Lizzie Dev in Middlesbrough

sued99 said...

Such pretty flowers and I like that they are flat so posting is easy.

Wheely Bad said...

Hi Sue,

Ahhhh, I get it now! I must confess, I did wonder as the look of a packaging online does not always give a clear idea and... I like them very much more than I thought I would. Definitely a great advantage for the postage as I tend to think "errr... flat? What do I put on it now?" I can't wait to see the pansies in action, I can think of lots of ideas for these, backgrounds, frames, embellishments, focals... plenty of uses! Well done Sue (yet) another winner!

Will comment to all in midday post,

Hugs, T x

Lesley Cann said...

These dies will be so useful especially as they can be posted. I especially like the roses.

Chris Curry said...

Two beautiful flowers, I think the pansy would be my favourite. Thank you Sue. Xx

Hi Sue
What beautiful dies....they are gorgeous!!!! Great card too by the way.

I didn't think I needed any more floral dies but I was wrong. I really like the idea of having flowers without bulk. It makes it so much easier to mail.

these flowers are absolutely gorgeous xx

Lisbeth said...

These dies are very clever as they make very pretty flowers without adding too much dimension and pushing up the postal costs. Good idea. I think my favourites are the pansies.

Hi Sue
I just love these; pansies are especially personal to me so you can see why I love them.

Hi Sue
Love love over these dies. I like flowers but don't like adding to much height due to the high pistage charges.
