Finishing Touches

Hello all!  The final post of the five days of the new die blog launch!  It is always sort of sad to see it come as I really enjoy reading all of your comments!  I do want to say that I have been listening to what you say and this set is for those of you that have asked for the open petal and the complete petal to be put in the same set.  Here you go!  The new Sweetheart Flowers have both dies in the same set and there are three sizes to use.  Shown here in their simplest form, you can see that they make a pretty flower, but did you happen to notice the flower on the last post?  That too was made with this set of dies!  There are other ways in which to use these as well so they are very versatile as well as affordable!  For a final time this launch, I ask you to leave a comment to be entered into the drawing.  I will post the winners of the die drawings on Monday afternoon.  I hope you have enjoyed this launch, I know I have!  All for now, Sue x

Combining the solid and outline flower dies together is a really great idea - and is good for the bank account!
Lovely die set and beautiful card. An appropriate way to end the launches, thank you.

Hi Sue,
Lovely flower die and thank you for putting the complete flower and open flower on - it is certainly cheaper than having to get both sets!

Have a lovely weekend everyone - hopefully the weather will be better, love Alison xxx

On behalf of my sister, Chris, I would like to say that when she gets her ipad later, and sees my comments made for her, hope she approves! I know she will love this one. Flowers all the way. Won't see her until tomorrow, but I know she is ok. Both of us have our fingers crossed for a nice surprise next week! We have loved them all.

Anonymous said...

Hi Sue. Well what can i say about your last post for this new die launch but WOW you have made another beautiful card and i am loving the zig zag die as the background. These little sweetheart flowers are stunning and a great idea putting the complete and open petals together in one set. You have made it very hard to choose favourites but the ones at the top of my wish list is the Australian collection, the zig zag die and the perspectives dies but if my card would let me i would have the ALL lol. Thanks for a great week of beautiful samples using your new dies and i cant wait to see what else you can do with them when you up load your new videos. Thanks once again Sue.
Best Wishes.

lorna said...

Hi Sue,
Sad indeed :-(
It's just so nice to see your collection 4 times a day, so many wonderful things and such lovely cards. You have a true gift.
Heart flowers they're so perfect! I make mine with individual hearts so this will save so much time and effort. And you go one better by having the two in one!
Fabulous launch.
Good luck to all
:-)

Janet Wilson said...

Really good idea to have both open & closed petals in the same set, much more affordable. Love the pretty colour scheme of your card. Have really enjoyed seeing all the new dies, & looking forward to seeing them used in your videos.

Aspiring crafter said...

Well Sue, a fabulous die launch and these sweet little flowers were worth the wait.
I love the fact you have combined the open and closed in one set and I think they are really going to be so useful .
There have been so many lovely dies I have to keep rearranging my wish list!
I think this is one of my favourite launches .
Thanks for your generosity and crafty inspiration,

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a very pretty and delicate looking card. I love these sweet flowers and having open & closed petals in the same set is brilliant. The CAS zig-zag die makes a great background! Thank you very much for all the hard work that has gone into this launch, I know I have enjoyed it very much and I am sure everyone else has also, we appreciate everything you do for us.

Clai01 said...

Hi Sue

like the open and complete petals together on the flowers in a die set
and they are gorgeous together. Been a fantastic, inspiring few days but it's never really over as we can see creativity at its best every day on Particraft.
Thanks Sue for the chances to win and for just being you! x

Lesley Cann said...

A great way to finish your die launch. Lovely to have open and closed petals together. Love the way you have used the zig zag as a background. Many thanks for all your hard work over the last few days.

Rosemarie said...

Hi Sue. Sad this is the last day, these launches are so much fun. I love the idea if the complete and open petal in one set, makes it financially a little easier to get both option. Amazing due launch. Thank you so much for all your hard work.

Love Rosemarie Fishlock x x

Tracy Stitt said...

Hi sue.

Ooooh this is lovely. Great that you've done open an closed in the one package and u can use them as individual hearts. All your dies are definitely versatile in so many wAys.
I'm sad it's all come to an end this week but will have a lovely card to look at tomorrow on the blog.
Congratulations on your release sue I'm sure the sales will not be disappointing!!!
Good luck everyone in the draw. Xx

Clare W said...

GE Sue. Another for my list! Love these. Andnis that the zigzag die in the background? I think it is. Thanks for the blogathon. Great to see the new dies in action.

Wheely Bad said...

Hi Sue

A lovely idea and thank you for putting both petals in one pack. I bet you can make all sorts with these! All these dies have been fantastic and the stamps... woweee! Some beauties, of which I'm sure we'll see more of in the coming weeks. You've excelled yourself again Sue, well done xxx hugs to you and mom from Billy and I xxx

Helen Bell, happy birthday, hope you had a lovely day, hugs x

It's been very blowy here but thinking of all those in the north and Scotland. Stay in the warm if you can and craft, hope with everything crossed that there's no damage x

Lynda, big hugs from Billy and I xxx

Theresa W and Pat L, thank you for your kind wishes, sending a big hug to you both yes, it's my birthday and I have been spoilt, craft tokens to spend (yippee!), been spoilt rotton by Mr W with a 3 course meal cooked by him, an unexpected, very thoughtful extra gift ( some Lush-ious smellies, he's also funding one of my crafty habits), I had texts, emails and visitors. Seeing my family over the next 8 days due to work commitments etc so I get to stretch this one out till the week after next when I see my girlfriends. The last time I had a three week birthday I couldn't remember most of it (and it was the last century lmao).

I must go and put a can of sugar free pop on ice! My meal will soon be ready.

Wishing you all a safe and warm evening, have a lovely weekend whatever you are doing,sending hugs and a virtual slice of birthday cake to everyone. Extra hugs if you need them, I got plenty,

Loraine Jefferis said...

What a fantastic launch you've given us and this last card is beautiful. I did comment on the rose on the previous card. I thought you went around the edges with embossing powder but now I can see how you've done it with these clever flower dies beautiful. Love it and love all your other cards in the launch. Will have to start saving as I want them all. Thankyou for all your hard work on our behalf. Best wishes Loraine Jefferis xx

Val Jones said...

Hi Sue,
Last but not least. Two beautiful die sets that will lend a touch of class even to my cards.
I so admire your crafting gift ans its been very exciting looking at you new collection and the wonderful cards you've made to highlight them.
Thank you for all your hard work.
Love Val in Spain x

auscrafts said...

I like the open and complete petals together on the flowers in a die set .It's been inspiring looking at all the new dies and the differnt ways to use them

Dragonsnap2, Hinckley said...

Sue, your dies are so beautiful and this latest set are so delicate. I really love them all.
I wonder if we could live on beans on toast for a month without the family noticing so that I can get all of them?
Seriously I really am struggling to choose between them. Love this latest card too. You give me such inspiration. Thank you.

Anonymous said...

I totally agree about putting the outline and the solid image dies in one set....whether flowers, leaves, letters, numbers, etc. So convenient in many ways...storage, versatility, etc., not to mention usually more affordable.

The heart shaped petals are really pretty. And, those leaves are wonderfully pretty...already emailed my state-side e-retailer asking about your new release....hope they will stock the new release real soon...

Thanks for such a fun week...you knocked it out of the park once again!!! Standing "O" for you. You truly are amazing and such a sweet soul.

Hi Sue,

The flowers are beautiful, and to have the complete set and open petals together is a bonus. It has been a fabulous week seeing all your new dies. Have a good weekend.

crossstitchmarg said...

Hi Sue,
What a good idea having the complete and open petals in one set, and such a pretty set of flower dies. I had to go back and take another look at the flower on previous card.
I can see this die set being used often by me.
Fantastic.
Thank you so much for sharing, I keep saying this because when I first saw the dies I was a bit disappointed but you have shown me that they are all beautiful. Often we need to see what can be made with the dies before making our minds up.

Gillyflower said...

Again - I need this die!! Dear me Sue, what are you doing to us all. I had decided to stop spending in February - but mmm can't see that happening now! Just a question of doing a list of your new dies now, and put them in the order that I need to get them! I love the idea of open and full petals on one die set - genius! Finally, thank you for the last few days, it has been wonderful, we are all sad to see it end. Gilly R of Cornwall xxx
P.S. Fingers crossed for the draw!!

Erica of Wye said...

A simply wonderful launch thank you Sue, I can honestly say I have loved all the dies this time, and you finish with a lovely card and gorgeous flower dies. The shape of these is so reminiscent of the flowers we all drew as children. I am just so sad it has all come to an end, but hopefully there is always next time to look forward to. I'll be tuning in on Monday afternoon with fingers (and toes) crossed. Happy Crafting all Sue fans lots of fun ahead. Take Care Sue love Erica of Wye

Your sweetheart flowers are to die for, love the card. You must be delighted with the great response to your new collection and I'd just like to thank you for all your hard work in designing all these wonderful dies, producing all the brilliant cards to inspire us and the you tube videos to show us how to use them. Unfortunately the postman didn't have a package for me so have to wait until tomorrow to get my hands on the zigzag and the happy perspective die

Wheely bad enjoy your extended birthday

hollyberry said...

These are probably my favourites,although I love all the new dies. Having the open and closed in one set is great for those of us on a tight budget.

Donna Golby said...

Really love all your flower dies. But wasn't sure on this set. After my husband passed away 18months ago I cleared out all my craft stash that had anything to do with hearts. But I really like what you made with them and the fact the open and closed are in the same pack. I know that means less sizes and number I like John Lockwood like to cut several in one pass. But no worries. Thanks for some lovely cards and for tempting me.

Annie Pennington said...

What a superb set of dies to finish on Sue. Great idea to have both sets of petals in one pack. I enjoy using both sets of petals together, they layer so beautifully.

I did wonder how you made the flower on the previous card sample.

I really enjoyed seeing the new dies. Quite a few made it to the top of my wish list.

Wishing good things to all xxx

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue

Beautiful card. The dies are great, last but definitely not least! I love flowers and really enjoy seeing them on cards. You have so many different ones now it's great. I think it's a good idea to mix the open and closed flowers in one pack to keep down the cost too.

Wheely Bad, thank you for your Birthday wishes. Happy Birthday to you too!! I'm glad you've had a great day and hope you enjoy your ongoing celebrations. I have been to the coast, which was very bracing but nice. Going out for a meal soon, so better get ready.

Sue, I'm sorry this launch has now come to an end. Have loved every minute, though some of my comments have not posted. Not sure why, must have become more doddery now I'm a year older! Hope not!

Love Helen xxx

Norah McPhee said...

Good evening Sue,
Well what a launch you have had this week with so many different collections and additions to long standing collections. This sweetheart set will be a great set with having both sets of components in it making it more affordable and with cutting down on the number of different sizes will mean a more organised approach to our flowers. THank you Sue for all the beautiful works of art that you have brought to our eyes this week as it's great being able to see a few cards in the day but i know not sustainable as it takes a lot of time and effort but i very much appreciate the effort you do go into for die week flower. Now you can have a night off and celebrate a very successful launch as its bound to be a bit nerve wracking leading up to worrying whether they will be as well received as you would like so i hope that with all the comments that you have had assures you that it was worth it.
love and crafty hugs

Hi Sue,
I'm with Jackie D. - what a lovely end to your launch. Albeit it's a bit sad, too as we won't be seeing 4 of your gorgeous cards a day. But I suppose it'll be our turn to come up with something beautiful and send pics to you...
The dies are lovely as is your card. Even the background is easy enough to make. And I can go quite funky with this one if the mood grips me :-)
Have a really good weekend Sue, you have certainly deserved it. Thanks for all the goodies and the work you have put into them.
Hugs, Rose

Love all your open/closed flower shapes, they're so unusual and always receive compliments whenever I use them on a card and this Sweetheart variety is a lovely addition to the range...also love that embossed Zigzag Border background...

Hi Sue. Well this is a lovely card to end your wonderful die launch with !!! I love these little heart flowers. They are just soooo cute !!!! A great idea to put both the open and closed dies together in the same packaging. Lots of uses for the "waste" pieces to. Looking at the flower on your previous post it seems that there are other versions of flowers that can also be created with these flower dies. How FABULOUS Is that !!!! A great die set Sue. Congratulations on another fantastic die launch. You should be very proud of all your amazing achievements. I have so many "must have" dies from your new die release that I just don't know what to buy first. Thank you for all your hard work and inspiration. Sending you lots of love and big hugs from Tres x x x

I would like to make a suggestion Sue of some really beautiful large fancy Wedding words. I have made Wedding invitations a couple of times now for different people and I think with some really lovely posh, swirly words we would be able to make some amazing invitations. These would include the words Wedding invitation, Evening invitation, Save the date, Order of service, Menu ect all in beautiful fonts. The words would be the main focus of the cards. Clean, simple, Elegant, Sophisticated, gorgeous !!! Maybe also the same beautiful, swirly fonts for a wedding card for the Happy couple getting married to and also for Engagement cards. I hope this is not to cheeky !!! It is Just a suggestion Sue. X x x

Sending lots of love to everyone from Tres x x x

Gorgeous flowers. And yes, really helpful to have the closed and open petals in one set. The fall-away provides some really cute hearts as well! What a fabulous collection you've brought to us. I'm meant to be sitting on my hands and NOT doing any ordering. However, I can see it will take all my will power not to succumb. Thank you for your generosity in offering so many die sets to your followers. Good luck to everyone! Best wishes, Anne O (Epsom)

I really love these and putting the two in one set makes a lot of sense. I have loved seeing all your new dies and whilst it's very difficult to choose a favourite I think it has to be the leafy background from earlier today.

Great to have the closed and open in one set, Sue, making this a really affordable option.
It's been another wonderful week of temptation and inspiration, not to mention your generosity. Thank you so much. This week has disappeared in a flash! Or is it just an age thing lol?
Hugs to all.

Hi Sue,
Love these flowers, they are so pretty and I think that I need these, the difficulty is deciding which others will have to keep it company!

Good Evening Sue
My how time flies. The last day of the new die launch is here already.
I can safely say you have yet again surpassed all expectations with all the new designs and ideas. I never fail to get inspiration when I use your dies or read your blog.
All I need to do now is start saving so I can get them all for my collection.
Love

Hi Sue - what a wonderful card to finish with and what a great idea to combine both types of petal into one set. You have worked wonders as usual in designing all these dies and showing us such spectacular cards. There are so many I want, but the one at the top of my list has to be the New Zealand Noble Border die - I fell in love with this when I saw your first sample and loved it all the more when I saw it in black. It's been a great week, have a well deserved restful weekend. Best wishes

Pam Hartlepool said...

I adore this set of dies. Always a big fan of your flower dies, these are among the most beautiful and it is a good idea to have the two sets in one. Thank you for that. You new die collection is, as the others have been, simply stunning.

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Good evening again lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

What a wonderful way to complete this amazing launch, a new flower in the shape of little hearts, ingenious. Great idea to incorporate the open and full petals into one set, it means we have extra pennies to buy another die:-) I particularly loved the flower on the previous post, it shows the versatility of your dies to perfection. The zigzag die works fabulously as a background, just another way of using this stunning die, it's a real must have.
Congrats Sue on a triumphant launch, you never disappoint, in fact you always manage to give us the wow factor....where do you get all your inspiration from because the diversity of your dies is so impressive? I am so glad that you have enjoyed the past few days as much as we have, sad that it must come to an end but it means that we appreciate these moments all the more.....plus even you need to put your feet up once in a while:-) I look forward to seeing all your samples over the coming months, the best part of a launch by far because nothing compares to seeing your interpretation of the dies in action.
Wheely Bad, happy birthday honey, glad you were treated to a memorable day, why not drag it out as long as you can:-) I'm partial to a Lush goody bag too, enjoy pampering yourselfxxxx
Helen B, many happy returns to you alsoxxx
Chris Curry, thinking of you after your operation, wishing you a speedy recoveryxxxx
Feeling a bit jaded tonight so I'll love you and leave you for now, cuddles to all my bestest blog buddies, good luck with the draw girls and hoping you all have a lovely weekend, especially those of you that are under the weatherxxxx

Love and crafty hugs,

Hi Sue, what a great idea to put both open and closed petals in one set. Love the black and gold flowers on the previous card, didn't realise they were the same dies.
Have loved the new launch this week, you are such a great designer also love your inspirational cards. Thank you. x

Tea Cosy Dee said...

Hello Sue

It has been such a treat viewing all your blogs, cards and dies over the past few days. The Sweetheart Flowers are beautiful and it is a great idea to have both the complete petal and open petal dies in the one set. This die set definitely adds the finishing touches to a card.

Now it is decision time for all your dedicated followers on which dies to choose. Thank you for all the inspiration.

Best regards.

Denise in Aberdeen.

Dawn Holben said...

Such a beautiful card to finish a fantastic new launch with.
I love the idea of having both dies in one set I am so pleased that you have said this is what was used
to make the flower in the previous card as I thought it was beautiful and that I had missed a flower set.
patience is not my best point. Lol
And I was not dissapointed I should have known there would be a beautiful flower die to come.

You should be pleased and proud at all these beautiful designs of yours as every single one is beautiful, unique
and on my wish list.
Well done on another successful launch.

I have so many flower dies, but it seems that I don't have one like this one! My list is getting long. I also "need" more gilding wax. I've gotten hooked on using them since I used the wax on my Christmas card!

Anonymous said...

Lovely die set. Great idea to have the open petal and the complete petal in one set of dies. I usually have to choose between the two. Hope you do this again in the future.
Congratulations on a fabulous new die launch. They are all stunners.

Lovely die set Sue, both open and closed petals in one Great!!!!

CraftySuetoo said...

Hi Sue. Thank you for both sets of petals in one set, it means that I should have some pennies left to buy another die from your new collection - but which one? It's been a wonderful five days of new ideas, I much prefer to see new dies in use rather than just in the packaging. Now it's time to go back over your posts and try to put the wish list in order!

Thank you so much for designing a set of open and closed flowers together. I have both sets of the camellia, but can't afford to buy both sets every time a new flower comes out. You are so kind to listen to requests from crafters. Thank you.
By the way, I love the design of this set!
