Sunday, 13 December 2015


Good Sunday morning all!  It has been a busy week for me, but I have thoroughly enjoyed it with the recent shows on Hochanda.  I hope you enjoyed them too!  I will be back in a few weeks time with another ODS featuring the other half of that die release too.  Today's card uses a pretty stamp called Elegant Lillies.  I used the Lattice and Lace Striplet to create the background.  Using just the decorative die, I cut three of them in a row out of milk card.  I cut the Vancouver die in milk card and backed it with another piece of milk card for a tone on tone look.  I seated it in the centre of the card.  I stamped the Elegant Lilies in black on milk card and cut it out with the matching Montreal die.  I used Distress markers to colour it, then stamped another one and coloured and cut out just the Lily flower.  I mounted it upwards for dimension.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it with an oval from the Canadian Tag die set and added it to the side of the flower.  I added cream pearls to the background before adding my usual pierced mat and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  8" in size.

Now for the winners of the weekly comment game.  This week's winners are:

Maria Alder!!!
June Fletcher!!!
Yvonne H!!!

Congratulations!  Please email me at to confirm your address and claim your prize.

I managed to get the comment game drawing done last night, but I am hoping to get the much overdue blog candy drawing done and posted either later today or on Monday, fingers crossed!  All for now, Sue x

Muriel Kelly said...

Hello Sue and all
lovely card, nice to see some old friends in there too, I really like the Canadian dies and use mine so often. Managed to see 3 of the shows altogether yesterday and really enjoyed them. So many new techniques and of course extended wishlist.
Very happy you enjoy the summer comments Diane, we had a bit of a cool change today so a bit more was achieved though I admit to spending quite a while really sorting out the craft room :-)
Have a lovely Sunday

CHERYL Brown said...

Morning Sue,

Another gorgeous card that is screaming at me 'buy the striplets!!!
They must be one of your bestsellers for versatility in uses.
I do have some loyalty points to use up so a trip to my lovely treasure house, Craftasmic, of a craft shop is well due.

Next door has finally stopped the building work which has resulted in my headaches disappearing. Thank goodness for some peace and quiet in this very busy seasonal run up to Christmas Day.

6 grandchildren helping with the decorations yesterday made a lovely joyous day for me, we found so many items I had forgotten about. I have tree baubles for nearly every one of them to hang up themselves, and others brought back such wonderful memories of each of their births and their first trees. I even found ones Mum gave me from my first Christmas. Bliss.

Warm thoughts and healing prayers to those of you in pain discomfort and awaiting hospital appointments. I hope your day becomes kinder to you.

Congratulations to the winners of the comments draw, Maria was so lovely to see your name!
Love & hugs
Cheryl xxx

ros hodgkins said...

Hi Sue, I really like this card, the dies and the colours seem to show all the items separately which is lovely as sometimes same colour cards all of the individual items mix together.
Lovely to see you on .Hochanda, I'm liking this channel more and more, and I really hope this nice easy pace continues, as I find on other shows everything is at warp speed and it can confuse new crafters. X Ros

Good morning Sue
What a beautiful card this morning! I love all the striplets but this one used as a background to the gorgeous stamp is one of my favourites.
I had such a busy day yesterday sorting out things at home and then going out in the evening I completely forgot about your shows!
How could I when I had been so looking forward to them!! As I also forgot to set the TV to record I am not sure whether I am able to watch them again on the computer. I will have to find some time today to see if I can do this!
With good wishes to everyone.

karenlotty said...

A lovely card using the Striplet die I happened to win from your launch I've been so busy - life really gets in the way at times doesn't it that I haven't had a real chance to "play" with the Striplet I will definitely try this idea

Anonymous said...

Hi Sue - your striplet dies always make beautiful cards and today's card reminds me of broderie anglaise. Your demonstrations on Hochanda were mesmerising and I'm so pleased we will be treated to more shows soon. Enjoy a well deserved lazy Sunday. Congratulations to Maria, June and YvonneH on winning a prize. Best wishes

lydia jordan said...

Tressa said...

Another lovely card. Stamping and colouring are new to me and it would seem some matching stamps are going to be next on my shopping list. Ow, ow, ow!!!! Then I need some distressed marker pens. Then I need the matching dies. Aaaarrrgggghhh.

I wonder how Michaelangelo felt when he realised what he needed to produce masterpieces!!!!!!

But then I think of the beautiful end products. Is there a difference between want and need?

Congrats to the winners this week.

Hi Sue. WOW This is a stunning card. Love the background with the striplet and the stamped image is gorgeous with beautiful colours of markers used. Great shows on hochanda and it looked like you were having a lovely time. You made some wonderful cards for your demos but your sample cards were out of this world. I just wish i had half of your talent and imagination. Looking forward to your return in January as you dont seem to be on the tv very much these days. I know you are a very busy lady so to have you twice in a matter of weeks is fantastic. Congratulations to all the comment winners. Enjoy your prize.
Take care everyone.
Best Wishes.

First of all while I remember congrats to all the comment winners! A very pretty card today Sue. I have asked Father Christmas for this striplet. Lol! I saw all your shows except the last one Sue & I loved them. I didn't think I needed the buckle die but now I know I do! Maybe after Christmas.

Norah McPhee said...

Good afternoon Sue and the WIlsonettes,
This is a beautiful card Sue especially the topper that you have coloured in. The softness of the milk card makes a beautiful soft background to the lily topper. Calla lilies always look so serene whether in a bunch or just a single making a statement all on its own. The striplet background gives the beautiful detail and filigree to the more solid topper. Yes a stunner Sue and with the sentiment that we think every day that we come into your blog and see yet another WOW to inspire and lift us. Have a wonderful day Sue.
Well done to all our lucky winners this week as what a lovely surprise Christmas present that you can honestly say to OH's across the land that you won it when they ask what you have been buying this time.
Well we have a cold snap blowing across the central belt and the cars are not even trying to defrost. Our beautiful hills are topped with their icing again and look like christmas puddings, the fields are white with frost and the trees like a soft sage colour of green with the frost on them, a truely winter wonderland if it wasn't so dashed cold but that's what gloves, scrafs and hats are for. Just finishing up my special Christmas cards for the family today but brain has went on walk about again so trying to cut things out and see what looks good(not having much luck yet). So i will wish you all a lovely sunday and see what tomorrow brings, with my thoughts and prayers going to all our friends that are struggling health wise, storm wise or just because of the time of year i send you all big hugs
Love and crafty hugs

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
What a beautiful card you have given us today. The focal point looks like a " bought" topper! I love arum lilies. Oh Sue, it's a jolly good job you aren't on TV every week - although I would like that! I succumbed to two more purchases ! The shiny card and the Striplet whose name I've forgotten! Anne Crawford made me want it too!! You are both to blame!
Looking forward to trying out your buckle ideas as I bought the die and then was overtaken by Christmas!
Love the Hochanda shows. I like most of the Presenters - they are natural and don't make the Show " all about them."
Sending love to Melody and family and Tracy and many others who are not finding life at all easy just at the moment.
