Shadow Box Collection

Good morning all!  We are starting off with the Shadow Box collection this morning.  Shown here, the In The Garden Shadow Box has a lovely crisscross detail around each of the box openings.  I have created this shadow box with the inside cutting edges attached so you will have all the opening cut out with just a single pass through your machine.  The die is packed full of gardening ides that can be used with or without the actual shadow box as well.  I have created this sample using kraft card for a more rustic look to it, but there are just so many more things you can do with it too!  Leave a comment if you like the look of this set.  The next post will be winging it's way to you at noon today.  Don't forget you can pin any of the samples or the dies as I have included the pin button on the bottom of each and every blog post for you.  I am looking forward to showing off the next set of dies to you very soon, I hope you can pop back by here then.  All for now, Sue x

Stunning start to Day 2, gorgeous card and dies. Love the shadow boxes.
June glad the dressing has been reduced, and that they are keeping an eye on the leaking. It should be easier for you to move around now.
Tina, hope Peters scan went well.
Elaine, my best wishes fir you and Andrew.
Norah, hope all is well with you and family.
Steph, how is Lottie doing.
Hugs to all poorly friends and missing friends.
Tina and Mick thinking of you.
Ladies, I have 2 tickets for Crafting Live at Peterborough from C & C fir 11th or 12th Nov, too far for me to attend, if anyone would like them please let me know . They are free, think they just want a charitable donation to British Legion.

Morning Sue
As you know I am your Shadow Box dies biggest fan and this one is no exception x
The little gardening accents are so amazing and I know that I will find them being put to good use over and over x
I have a feeling in my waters that we are in for an array of all the DIELIGHTFUL shadow box accessories today, which is my idea of heaven. Love you Sue x
Now I hope you have managed to pick yourself up after the shock of seeing my comment being posted so early!! Awake since 4. I would be an ideal candidate for nightshift at the moment x
Time for some breakfast and then (another) lazy day enjoying the launch x
Loads of love
Take care

Morning Sue and crafters all,
Beautiful cards from exquisite intricate days.
My Christmas list will be enormous!!!!!
Pam - Peter's scan gave the same results as last week, they are now thinking it may be lymphatic!!!!! Spoke will our fantastic GP and he is getting in touch with his Oncologist, so it's a wait and see game again.
June Smith so pleased your wound is getting easier to manage and leaking less.
Love and crafty hugs to all,
Tina T xxxx

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. Too cold and frosty for me to leave the house today so Grandad has left to drive to Halifax to look after his little Lottie. She's getting there thanks Pam c
That leaves nanny in the position to keep up today. This little beauty is anything but cold and frosty and rather than start my 6 months of home detention it takes me back to spring. What a beautiful retirement card this would make Sue. My reason for picking that occasion for this die is how many times do you hear "I'll have more time to garden now I'm retired" (unless you're a card making addict) hey Sue, a crafters shadow box ? What do you think of that idea ? Anyway now my mind is running riot of all the different hobbies that need a shadow box, its too early. I fell head over heels in love with my first shadow box which was the New Additions, this may be on top of the new list, but first i have to keep telling myself.... PEIRCED NOBLES !!!!
Hope you have a great day Sue reading all the wonderful comments you so deserve not only from those that admire you and your inspiration everyday, but from those that pop in for a look but don't usually leave their comment, it's good to see the names that usually stay in the background and if you've been trying to pluck up courage to leave a comment for ages and you've taken the plunge for the first time then welcome and please stay, don't hide away once the launch is over, this gorgeous blog is MORE than freebies it's help advise, and pure inspiration from the very best you can get. So welcome, enjoy and stay with the comments that are so nice to read.
Sending my usual daily hugs to you Sue. Great launch xxx

Pussycats said...

Good Morning Sue and all. I love the shadow box and I can see this would be a great one to get with so much you could and perfect for mens cards. I love all the dies you get with this collection and looks fab in the kraft card.
Hugs all round and well wishes. Wendy

CraftySuetoo said...

Good morning Sue. What a fabulous start to the day! It's great to have the option of a shadow box where all the bits cut out in one pass, I'm terrible at lining things up straight so this is perfect for me. Hugs to all. Sue xxx

I love the shadow boxes and this is no exception.
Jen from Bognor

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, love the idea of this shadow box especially the frame being one whole piece, with gardening subjects too - another idea for a man's card is popping up in my head. I am so looking forward to the other accessories for the shadow boxes, saw the sneak peak that you put on CE and fb with the glossy black shoes.........oh say no more otherwise I will spoil the surprise.

Pam I am sure someone will have the tickets, it is so nice of you to donate them to someone else, and also a donation to British Legion is brilliant.

Yvonne, you are becoming a real early bird (do you play Bingo in your spare time) - I know what it is like when you can't sleep, I laid in bed awake since 4 this morning then finally got up (I knew the blog was ready at 6), try and have a cat nap today it might help.

Thanks Tina T yes it is getting better, but still leaking a bit, I am not due to go out until Friday for a hospital appointment so when the nurse comes today she might decide to leave the dressing off to see if it will heal over with the air getting to it. You sound like you have a fantastic GP who is so supportive, let's hope the Oncologist can suggest some treatment, hope Peter is not in too much pain.

Thinking of everyone who needs a hug, you all know who you are.

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

Hi Sue and everyone

Such a cute card. Love all the elements, will be useful even without the shadow box. Like the idea of a one pass through frame too. I'm not normally a lover of Kraft card, but have to admit it looks great used here.

Pam you are very generous offering free tickets for the Peterborough show. I hope someone can use them. I have already bought my ticket and all being well hope to attend. There is a free shuttle bus from the train station. X

June, I hope you are ok and the wound soon stops weeping. X

Rose in Chester said...

Oh Sue, this is such a lovely card. THAT LITTLE LADYBIRD HAS STOLEN MY HEART, it's SO SO cute and I love them in my garden, munching all the greenfly.
The Kraft card also complements the topic.
This Wednesday is going to be a lovely day - your launch with 4 showings, John Lockwood with your previous release on the telly (all on record in case I miss something) and the most glorious autumn weather which just lures me outside, the colours are glorious.
Hugs, Rose

Ruth Kidd said...

Wow Sue, this is gorgeous and looks great in the kraft card. I love the little embossed crosses - they look a bit like cross-stitch. Hmmm, I have some sewing-related stamps which could work well in the apertures. Also have John's herb stamp set. You've got my head buzzing with ideas now!

Congratulations on another stunning release.

Good morning lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

Its no secret that i love the shadow box concept, it is just so effective and ticks so many boxes...sorry, bad joke....how great is it that you are constantly adding to the range, giving us more and more options to cater it specifically to the lucky recipient. I love when this card, it's also cute, the kraft card compliments the theme perfectly giving a rustic feel to the finished article....the mini dies are gorgeous, the little ladybird is so sweet, it will be perfect for many keen gardeners amongst us of which there are many. Looking forward to the rest of the shadow box range of accessories...spoiler alert!
June, such a shame that you are struggling to get an uninterrupted nights sleep, thankfully though, your wound is healing, hope letting the air circulate will solve the leakage issue.
Yvonne, well i nearly had a cardiac arrest at seeing your comment so early this morning, pity that you're still struggling to sleep though honey, hope that doesn't mean you'll be too tired to bitch with me tonight? Hope all goes well with the GP later, glad the locks are finally changed though.
Good news for my brother, his job is under threat since the office is being closed, he's been on borrowed time for months and desperately applying for other jobs...well, just like buses, two have come along at once, one for the justice department and one for Her Majesty's Cusom and Excise Dept:-), i'm so pleased for him because he's been really struggling lately.
Wishing a good day to all my besties, i wont bore you by naming names, you know who you are my loveliesxxx

Hi Sue, this card looks really lovely, the shadow box dies are a really good idea, you can add so much to them.

Hello Sue,
What a super start to the day! This is beautiful and I'm really tempted , particularly in view of some others coming up!! I make very few baby cards so didn't have a need for those although they are lovely! Gardening and girly things - different altogether! I like how you have used Craft card as I always forget to use that! This has gone on my List! I think I need a Shadow Box , don't you??
Pam - a very kind offer and I , too, am too far away but I'm sure someone will take you up on your kind offer!
PP - you made me laugh aloud when I read your post - thanks for that! My husband thinks we are all mad! So sorry you aren't sleeping well! Maureen makes a good alarm clock! A tap on the door and a smiley good morning - then she spoils it by saying remember I've seen you in this dishevelled state!! Lol!
Another lovely sunny day - just lovely Autumn weather. The leaves are all crunchy this morning! Brings out the big kid in me!!
Love to all, Myra ( Friend of Maureen!) xxx

Jean Bullock said...

Oh my gosh! This is adorable. I love the frame and the little embellishments. So cute. I was looking at the frame and I started thinking how fun it would be to hinge little doors over the openings and put a surprise message in each opening. I pinned as usual. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/415386765615717386/

Hi Sue, I managed to have a quick look at this card earlier whilst making my husband's breakfast and I squealed with delight. I love, love, love it - that is my sister's and cousin's birthday cards sorted for next year! All the little elements are gorgeous and although I know lots of people don't like ladybirds (especially if they come in the house and nest in the window frames) I have always loved them. Many years ago when I was a Girl Guide my camp name was Ladybird and my mum, a good artist, painted lots of them onto my tuck tin; I was so proud. Using kraft card is ideal and I am already seeing touches of raffia or seed packets poking out. I think this one may well be my favourite.

I do enjoy the kraft paper used on this card. The die set is a charmer also. I can see using the various parts on other projects. We have not had winter here as yet but I am already looking forward to spring.
