Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

Hi there my crafty friends!  Guess what, no Christmas card for the giveaway!   I thought I would give you a reprieve today! LOL    I started this card with a piece of peach card and cut four of the Pavo Gemini dies in white.  I used both cutting edges for them as well as the decorative centre piece.  I created a frame by hooking the ends of each of them into a large square shape and glued them to the card.  For the focal element, I cut the Porto die in white and backed it with white, then used the smaller die in the Porto set for the frame around the sentiment.  I cut this one in white and backed it with white card as well, but used the inner die to cut it into a frame.  I stamped my sentiment and then mounted the frame over it.  I cut three flowers using the Classic Foldover flower and some matching peach felt (from my stash).  I rolled them and just cut them at different lengths to create different sized flowers.  I added some white Mosaic Leaves around them as accents.  I finished the corners with some white pearl corners and added my usual pierced mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8 1/4" x  8 1/4" in size.  If you would like to be entered into the drawing to win this card, just leave me a comment.  I will post the winner's name on the Saturday blog post.  Al for now, Sue x

Hi Sue
Another lovely card! How do you think these up?
I'm rather fond of the peach colour card because I really really do not do pink in any way shape or form (not a criticism just my personal taste)
I'm also a little in love with the Gemini dies!
Ok I'm probably a little in love with all of the dies (lol)

Sam Smithard said...

To My Very Special Friend Sue,
What Can I Say Other Than "WOW" Today's Card
Is Well And Truly Tremendous I Just Love The
Fabulous Colour Palette You Have Used And The Fantastic Dies,
That Are Extremely Versatile I Have The Dies And I Love
Them, Like All Your Fantastic Dies They Cut Remarkably Well
The Christmas Dies Are Outstanding Even The Extremely Delicate Dies Cut
So Very Well, One Lady Asked Me To Try And Cut An Angel Die
It Wasn't Your Beautiful One I Tried Every Way Even Using
Fine Card But No It Wouldn't Cut Through All Areas, When I
Compared The Cutting Areas To Yours They Weren't As Deep
Your Dies Are First Class.
Congratulations To The Winners Of The Gift Dies.
Take Care My Dear Friend
Warmest Fond Wishes To Your Mom And Colin

Sue, I love everything about today's card except for the peach background. I think the flowers are especially lovely in felt.

Tracy, thanks love but I must not spend on myself until after Christmas. I do have a die coming from Sue so I hope I am well enough to craft by the time it comes.
Linda N, how are you doing?
Belay, I hope the cold is short lived.
Melody, I hope you are well and that Francis is not over doing things. Huggles for you both.
Well my friends this bout is still going on with a vengeance. I miss chatting to my Mum. She was going to visit me but it's so hard for me to talk she keeps putting it off in the hope that the next day I will be better but it's not happened yet.
Going through my old recordings of John shows and just keeping the ones where I plan to get the die or have them. I can see me keeping them all :)

Hello Sue & All The Wilsonettes!
I hope you are all well & keeping warm! It is blowing a howler & raining, here in Rosemarket! We have a coal fire (thankfully!), which is blazing away but I am still freezing cold!
I hope none of you have had this dreadful flu, that's been going around? My Mum & I have both had it for about two weeks & it's only now we are getting over it! Mum was a lot worse than I was, as she is A LOT thinner than me! HEHE!
I really should get going on my Christmas cards (although I've made a few) but it has been too cold to move from the fire! Well, that's my excuse, anyway! HEHE!
Sue, you've made a lovely card again, today!It looks so elegant (as always!)! The colour combination makes it look very warm! I would love to be in with a chance of winning such a lovely card as this!
I hope that everyone going through tough times will find comfort soon!
With Love & Best Wishes,
From, Mary Blight XXX

julie laz said...

Hi sue, omgoodness I've missed everything, I've had a bad few weeks with my illness,
Just looked at all your new dies, and o my goodness sue what a beautiful and fabulous set,
I need them all, can't tell The husband (lee) that, as everyone no's he'll get them all for me, I can't even say I like something anymore with out him getting it for me, he sees the illness and wants to give me everything, ( love him ) so I don't say anything now,
Not doing much crafting of late in my craft room, but I have been book folding and using all you're finishing Touchings dies to finish them off and everybody loves them,
your card today is beautiful in every way possible,
just to say I've seen and loved all the cards from the last few weeks and I've saved them and will make them when I get back crafting,
Crafty hugs to all Julie laz xxxxx

Really like the filigree look that the Gemini dies have given you here, beautiful against the peach. Looking froward to tomorrow, as last year (where has the time gone?)I discovered from one of your bloggers that anything you eat on Thanksgiving is calorie free...... it's like Nessie, you either believe in it or not! Enjoy your Thanksgiving.

Oh, I just love the Pavo die, and this card really shows it off. Very lovely card again, and I do love the Christmas ones also, not at all tired of seeing your creations for the holiday.
Any plans to bring Hochanda to the USA? It sounds like a very inspiring channel for crafters. I was very excited when you appeared on Create and Craft, but it seems there are no new Creative Expression items on anymore. I am assuming you are now exclusive to Hochanda? I must say Create and Craft is very boring without you, Sue.
To all the Wilsonettes or Wilsonites, hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Not sure if you celebrate in England, but it doesn't have to be a holiday to have a thankful heart. God Bless!

Good evening lovely Sue and the fab Wilsonettes,

Perfectly peachy! Today's card is a vision of loveliness, and how refreshing to see some of your older dies again- we should never neglect them in favour of solely using the newer editions. Really adore the felt flowers, wondering if Julia stocks it because it's on my next shopping list. The peach card is fast becoming a fave of mine, it's so soft a nd feminine and a pleasant change from other girly colours like pink.
Who wouldn't want to be the lucky recipient of this little beauty- though I must say that I could never get fed up of your Christmas themed cards, I love them and would welcome them all year round!
We've had a cold but sunnyish day in Stirling for a change, couldn't really make the most of it though, had to get my stitches out- I was a little nervous but had no need to be because it wasn't anything more than a slight tugging sensation and the infected areas were much improved so I don't need any more antibiotics:-) I guess I'll have to stop acting like the walking wounded so that I can get out of doing the dishes!
Wishing we celebrated Thanksgiving in the UK, imagine having two turkey dinners with all the trimmings in the space of four weeks!
Txcowgirl is spot on when she said that you shouldn't need a holiday to be thankful for what we have though, often we moan about our aches and pains, lack of money, bad weather etc etc rather than celebrating and appreciating the things in our life that are good.
We have adopted Black Friday though, you can't move for sales and offers at the minute- good for Christmas presents, not so good for the credit card though:-) wishing all of our American friends a happy Thanksgiving and hoping you get to enjoy the day with your loved onesxx
Julie, what a gem of a hubby, I'd be exploiting his generosity to the max- my addiction to Sues dies is such that there are no depths that I wouldn't sink to to acquire them, including making my family feel sorry for me:-) Unfortunately I am single and my Mum is immune to my emotional blackmail so I have to fund my own fetish:-( But seriously, he's worth his weight in gold.
Mary B, I don't think I would get much crafting done in this weather if I had an open fire to snuggle up to either
Tracy, hope you enjoyed your walk and the sunshine stretched to Ayrshire today. You rock that wig girl, though make sure it's securely in place because those winds on the coast can be brutal:-)
Yvonne, you poor dear, I hope that migraine hasn't been exacerbated by your baby sitting duties- company can be so tiring even if all you are doing is talking. Put your feet up and enjoy the Apprentice, it looks like a classic tonightxxx
Special hugs to Beth, Rebecca, Wheely Bad, Jan, Lorraine F, Maria, Saba, Theresa and anyone in need of a good cuddlexxx
Melody, Molly and Francis, thinking of youxxx

Crafty hugs,

Gorgeous card again today Sue, I love the look you get from layering four of the dies.
Very beautiful and so very elegant especially with that colour too.

DeCor said...

This card is such a testiment to all the care and attention that you give to the design of your dies, but the lovely way you have overlapped the ends and they look like that is how they are made to be...so eye catching! It may not be a Christmas card, but you could easily adapt it to be one! Thank you again for you great inspiration.

I love those dies! What a beautiful card Sue. After Christmas I'll be making another wish list for more dies. I love all of your products especially your pins and beads. I'm making Christmas pins for all of the ladies at our craft store. Have a great day!

Saba said...

Hi Sue,
Bit late for me but couldn't miss commenting on this beautiful card, love the Pavo die and how you have used it as a frame.
Not usually a fan of peach but I think you have just converted me, it looks so soft and gentle.
Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration, enjoy the rest if you can.

Tracy hope you enjoyed your walk, thinking of you.
Yvonne sorry you were not well yesterday.
Lorraine, glad those stitches are out, I think anyone who has had their stitches removed should get at least a week off washing up duties.
Melody sending you a big hug.
Love to all
Saba

I love this peach color. Happy Thanksgiving, Sue, even if you are in the country we are celebrating leaving. Of course, if I left the states, that's where I would go, too. Love the card. Myra from Florida
