Lovely card and like the the way you've used the zig zag die

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, I saw this card on Hochanda when you were on recently, and also some of the other cards using the Zig Zag die, I was unsure when it first came out but then following the demo's I just had to purchase it and it arrived a couple of days ago, I can't do any die cutting at the moment (don't feel like doing any either) but when I am able this is one of the first cards I will try and make, I am so pleased you have put the video on here.

Update on my wound: well it is responding slowly, still in a lot of pain getting fed up with trying to find a comfortable positon, but hey ho there are so many people out there who are in a worse position then me, so I am not going to feel sorry for myself. Thank you all for the lovely comments and best wishes on here.

Congrats Nannie Flash

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

GM Sue. Fab card. Will watch video later. When the zigzag first came out I wasn't sure about it until I saw your samples! Then I bought it. I've used it for Hubby's bday card and cut it in blue and black and he loved it. Think it will be a very well used die!

Didn't think I needed this die - how wrong can I be it looks so effective on this card & could be most useful as a focal point or highlight on a mans card. Oh dear my list just got longer. Thank you for the video Sue.

Morning Sue, so glad you did a demo using th zigzag border as I bought this die at Ally Pally and was having trouble with it stretching when I took it out of the die. Beautiful card today. Thank you so much for the die I won in your launch giveaway, it has just landed on my doormat! Love Jean xxx

June Horrocks said...

Congratulations Shirley xxxx

Lisbeth said...

Morning Sue. I am glad that you have done a demo using this die. I was really intrigued when I saw it and liked the effect on some of the sample cards I have seen using it, but I didn't really understand the concept. How fabulous it is and how useful for those pesky male cards. Love today's card.


Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
Another beautiful and elegant card. I always love the flowers you make, and it just goes to show that zigzag does NOT exclude round shapes. Love the colours used in it, too.
Hugs, Rose

So glad to see you use the zig zag die...I've been curious about it since its release. Loved the idea to use low tack tape on the back to get it out of the die without warping it. I saw a similar tip where the designer used Press N Seal to do the same thing...something I always have in my pantry. The beaded swirl dies are so beautiful....I purchased the set recently and love how they cut and look on a card....

Great card and always.

Belated congrats to all the recent personal time has been limited the last several days so I haven't commented as much. My apologies.

Hi sue.
Beautiful card. Just going to watch the video shortly. I really like the Maggie die no doubt the zig zag will grow on me lol.

Pam. No gardening allowed. I just meant that I was enjoying sitting on my different seating areas around the garden lol.
We had it all re done last year to help me as I was struggling to maintain it. And then when I took ill I didn't get the chance to enjoy it.
So Graeme has had to take over the grass cutting. As we have a rockery now too it's a lot easier to look after xx

Love to all xx

Susan White said...

Really effective use of the zigzag die - it looks like really posh two-tone ribbon, Susan x

Jomada-Dawn said...

Great tip about using removable tape to keep the die-cut together - I wonder if it would work in reverse - ie, to keep the "waste" bits in place and remove the main element, with a view to then cutting the same die in a different colour and then mixing the two sets together (does that make sense? I know what I mean, but not sure I've expressed it very well!) - I will have to give it a go!

Oh my word Sue, how pretty. Lovely zig zag die

Hello Sue,

I have bought this die recently, not had the chance to use it. I love the way you have used it on this card, so that gives me a little inspiration (thank you).

The card itself is just beautiful, you give me so many ideas, it takes me a bit more time to do a card compared to you but I keep trying.

Thank you so much. Love n hugs from Dorothy of Baldock xo

Have a lovely weekend Sue and everyone

Hi Sue, a beautiful card and I love all the dies and the embossing folder used. The zigzag die is one of the most unusual that I have seen and it has such a great effect. The flowers are gorgeous and I just wish mine came out as well as yours, I shall just have to practice more.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

I love this card Sue. Another I fell in love with when it was showcased on your last appearance on HOCHANDA.
Between your gorgeous samples, those made by America plus the stunning cards made by the lovely ladies on the fb group, this has completely changed my mind about this die. I know you've said and written that certain dies look nothing in their packaging, and you are ALWAYS right,and we should take more notice considering you are the designer lol. So I'm a convert and this beauty must find its way home sometime.
Looking forward to watching the tutorial which is the next 'to do' thing on my list. Hope you are having a nice Saturday Sue, I'm sure Nannieflash is, congrats Nannie you are now a member of the fairy craftmothers owners club lol.
Hugs to you Sue xxx

Norah - so lovely when you strike up friendships with like minded people and can enjoy good times together - even if your minds are all warped x
BETH - I have always been so lucky with neighbours. Even as a child I remember being in and out of all the neighbours houses. All this shopping - like me it sounds like you don't consider it to be retail therapy. Unless it involves crafty bits I loathe shopping x
WHEELY - hope you managed to get your haircut - always makes me feel better x
JAN - so nice to hear you acknowledging my being the favourite. I am still in shock about my win and the grin is still spread across my face x
TRACY - bet you hardly know yourself with all this time to fill. Try not to overdo it though. Sending you hugs x
LILIAN - sending you love and hugs - take care x
JUNE - bless you - hope antibiotics have kicked in - gentle hugs x
LESLEY S - hope you are enjoying some fun playtime x
LORRAINE - sorry you are feeling down. Huggles x
PATRICIA - welcome back x
JAN - shouting back to you x
LAINE - bet you are counting down the hours til your dentists appointment. Sending big hugs x
Can hear my bed calling so will bid you all goodnight.
Happy thoughts to you all

Oh Sue I absolutely adore this card, I love the maggie die and have just bought it
and the zigzag die so I am going to have a try at this one.
I love the dusky rose colour card and was wondering if it is from your own stash or foundation card.
Thank you for another fab video too.

Hi Sue.
Your video as always is fab !!! I love the gorgeous card you have made !!! I love your Maggie die and your zig zag die. They are both wonderful !!! I really love the flower that you made using the new Sweetheart dies. I have these dies and I really love using them on my cards. I already have a couple of your leaves and swirls dies and I was not intending to buy any more but I have just seen you put these gorgeous beaded swirl flourishes on this card and I think I may have just fallen in love with them !!! They are now going straight on my wish list. I think I will be able to use them in place of the pearl swirls and there are even places for some of the pearls to sit on to !!! Just beautiful Sue. Thank you for sharing your wonderful card and video. Lots of love to you Sue from Tres x x x

Congratulations to today's lucky card winner love from Tres x x x

Lots of love to everyone from Tres x x x

Beautiful card. Thanks for the tip on keeping the zig-zags in place when removing from the die. I was having trouble with this. The Maggie die is lovely.
Congratulations to Nannieflash.
Take care everyone.

Jean Bullock said...

Beautiful as usual. I enjoyed the video and pinned the card of course!

Lesley Griffiths said...

I'm so pleased that you have made this video as I can now get this die out of the packaging and start to use it to make stunning cards.
My Wedding Shadow Box dies that I won recently, arrived yesterday and they are amazing. I've made a gold and cream A4 size card with them and the Birthday Shadow Box set as the focal elements for my baby sister's 60th Birthday on 1st May. The interchangeability of your die sets it to be applauded.
Thanks so much Sue,
Happy Days,
