Atlantic Ocean Collection

 Hello all!  Day four of the first die launch of 2017.  I hope you have seen a few sets that have tickled your fancy!  Today is dedicated to showcasing the latest Atlantic Ocean Collection.  This post is showing off the Background from the collection.  Shown here, it is a square background die which is a bit different from the usual rectangular shaped backgrounds.  The die has been designed with three decorative sections and the separate cutting edges.  There is so much versatility in the way it can be used, I am sure you will be reaching for it over and over.  Don't forget to add your name to the comments to be entered into the drawing to win this die set.  The next post is at 12 noon today.  All for now, Sue x

Now got a new favourite. Love this die and a square background is more useful to me as I make more square cards.

Love this die. I make quite a few square cards so very useful. Lovely card to show it off too. Great start to the day.
Crafty hugs to all.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Sunday Smiles to you. You really tickled my fancy big time with all your very clever and totally ingenious Kinetic designs Sue, and the samples you showed us were gorgeous, I imagined you having so much fun making up those samples, ending with a happy dance ☺ am I right ?
Although I'll leave a comment everyday as I do, I'd like to step down from entering the draw for the frames and tags if I may giving one extra person to take a place. You know just how useful the Kinetic dies will be for me so those are the dies I'm concentrating on for the time being they are sooo adorable. I love this die set Sue, the colours you chose are deep and mysterious and great for a male type card. Really looking forward to the rest of today's samples and treats.
Sending many hugs your way xxx

Hi Sue and everyone

A gorgeous card. Love the new background shape, and there are those butterflies again. Looking forward to seeing more today.

Dear Sue and my fellow followers of Sue who are agog like me as this release unfolds,

One would think the Atlantic was full of pretty, pretty bubbles!
I've made up my mind. You can send me this die, if you please, and feel free to throw in the chrysanthemum dies as well.
Might as well make that 5,000 sets and send one to each of us! I'd still like the flower, too, please.
Don't they look natural with those bow tails hanging down? That's like something God would do.
I couldn't risk Valentine's Day without the jewel heart, so I didn't waste any hope on winning it. I just ordered it.
But this would make an excellent win!
Enjoy your Sunday!


Donita Naylor said...

Happy Birthday Helen Bell and Wheely Bad!

For your present, we won't sing!



Anonymous said...

Really like this square set of dies, Sue, now realise where the background came from on the first launch day. Great card, too, fab colours and feeling quite a lusting for chrysanthemums!
Happy birthday Helen, and Wheely too if you look in.

Hi Sue,

This looks a beautiful die set, I particularly like square dies as I make mainly square cards. I have a few of your square dies and they all cut beautifully and are so versatile, they make a very simple card or an intricate one. Your card is lovely, great colours. I'm off to a craft fair this morning, but will pop back on this afternoon to see your next post.

Lovely card & die & while I would love to own it I'm afraid it won't be going to the top of my list as the fillables & kinetics are firmly in top spot! However it would be useful as like several other Wilsonettes I make a log of square cards.. thank you Sue.

Hi Sue,

You've hit two birds with one stone with this set!...I usually work with squares and circles and you've managed to include both here in a truly gorgeous design and it's the perfect size too for smaller cards, so very post-friendly... that spiky chrysanthemum too...


Anonymous said...

Morning Sue. A beautiful card to start day 4 of your fantastic launch, loving the colours you have used. Now this die is gorgeous and thank you for making it a square die as i make loads of 8x8 cards. I have all of your New York collection and i still use it all the time as it has become one of my all time favourites along with the pacific collection and i think this collection is going to be the same as their is a lot of unusual shapes to them. Looking forward to the rest of this collection and to see what you have made with them.
Best Wishes.

Sylvia Yates said...

I've got this die already, thanks to be able to pre-order. Now I have an idea what to do with it, lol. Which flower did you use on the sample Sue? X

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, had a bit of a lie in this morning, well it is Sunday, even though I am retired and can lie in any day I like it is still nice occasionally to do it on a Sunday, well that is my excuse anyway.

Now to day's card, the Atlantic background is the one die which was at the top of my list that I must order, I am a great lover of the 8x8 cards and use them most of the time, this is going to be such a great additional to my collection, love the square in the middle turned to look like a triangle, can imagine so many of my sentiments in there............the idea's are flowing in my head Sue can you catch the vibes please. The there next one on my list is the Chrysanthemum, I am loving this one.

Happy Birthday today to Hellen and Wheeley, have a lovely day

Hugs to some very special people including Tina T, Owen, Elaine, Andrew, Myra, Maureen, PP, Diane G, oh the list goes on and on but you all know who you are.

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

Morning Sue
I'm back - have you missed me?!! x
I cannot tell you how completely in lust I am with this die. In fact all of the dies in this launch have filled me with a burning desire which is a feeling I am not over familiar with these days - if you know what I mean. Lol x
This card is absolutely beautiful. Square cards are the ones I seem to make the most so this is a die which is just got to come and live with me. Oh who am I trying to kid - I want them all x
Well I have returned from the frozen North (yesterday) after having to go cold turkey on the blog which is a traumatic experience in it's own right. But let me tell you, to know that there is a launch on the blog and not be able see what you have done with your creations to delight and thrill us all is a not an experience I would like to repeat in a hurry x
I think Laine told you I had lost the charger for my tablet, which was so frustrating. I thought I had lost the plot. Anyway - and I will not go into the details of this story of mystery and intrigue - my dad had my charger!!! For over a week!!! After all my fuss and frustration and searching he produced the stolen goods yesterday morning as we we were leaving for the train station calmly saying these words - 'oh, this isn't what you've been looking for is it'?
I am incredibly grateful that I have my charger back but could have quite happily throttled my dad!!
Anyway I now feel like I am back in the land of the living after being out in the wilderness. I am pretty done in after almost 3 weeks at mum and dads but have quite a bit of catching up to do don't I?
The Wrinkles are so much better and it was so lovely to see them but I am pleased to be home.
Tina T - I have been thinking of you my friend. Sending you and Owen love and hugs x
Oh it is so good to be back. Bear with me whilst I attempt to get back into the swing of things x
Sending everyone happy thoughts and oodles of love especially all my lovely blog besties x
Take care

Sam Smithard said...

To My Wonderful Dear Friend Sue,
"Day 4" Of Your Tremendous New Die Collection And As "Patricia Howarth"
Mentioned This Collection Will Cost Me A Fortune Also As I Love The Complete Collection
Today's Card Just Screams Out "Pure Luxury" I Just Love The Tremendous Colour Palette Of
"The Black/Gold/Coconut White" I'm A Huge Fan Of Black Being Used On Cards Although I Do
Love Pastel Colours, But Black Makes A Card "POP"
I Just Love "The Atlantic Ocean Background" I Also Make Mostly Square 8 x 8 Cards Which I Just Prefer
I'm Not A Lover Of Small Cards But Everyone Has There Different Choices.
I Made Lots Of Christmas Cards Using The Square Background Die You Brought Out At Christmas
They Are So Extremely Useful, I Just Love How You've Cut Out The Inner Part Of The Background
Then Using The Die With The Perfect Wholes And Placing This On Your Card In An Diamond Shape
Through The Centre Showing Your Embossing Folder, I Just Love The Stunning Mat/Layering
And Your "Truly Stupendous Chrysanthemum" This Flower Is So Luxurious.
Your Card Today Is Extremely Exquisite, Elegant, Exquisite, Just Very Beautiful....
Sue I'm Aware You Make Mostly Rectangular Backgrounds (Maybe You Could Possibly Design More
Square Backgrounds, No Pressure Lol!)
Although Through Watching Your Many Videos Sue If I'm Using A Rectangular Background And Wish
For A Square, I'd Cut It Down (Like You've Shown Us Many Times)
The Centre Taking Bits Away To Create A Square (Where Ever Possible)
Then I'd Add My Sentiment To Cover The Join But Only By Watching You Sue Convert Your Dies Into
Something Completely Different.
Sue Thank You For Sharing Today's Masterpiece I'm Loving Each And Every Card You've Designed To
Go With You Debut Of 2017 Cutting Dies And Stamps.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and the wilsonettes,
I love when you do a set Sue that we can interchange with and mix and match around and this card although just showing one part of the set starts the whole thing off for me.Now don't faint because i like this card but the black in it really sets it off and apart from other cards. The taupe with the black and white is a lovely combination to work with and this is a bonnie die set to start playing with. Thank you flower for bringing another lovely set to our crafty stash.
Nice to see you PP and that your wrinklies are hopefully back to fighting fit or fit enough at least that you can go home with a clear concious, it has been sooooo quiet here on the blog, i wonder why, lol. Glad Mum and Dad are ok again though flower because as a grown up child you do worry about them when they are ill and you are not on the doorstep.
Oh and we have birthday girls with us today so a very happy birthday to both Helen and Wheelybad, i hope that you both get spoilt rotten like you deserve to be and Wheely, i hope that you are keeping a bit better this weather flower, but hugs are on there way down to you just to give you that extra wee boost.
Pam, you must be joking thinking that Myra could be up at the crack of dawn....not a chance, this lady doesn't do through the night getting up, lol.
Well i think it has dried up finally and i can see a wee bit of my hills today, not a lot, but a tad as they are still got the fog and mist clinging to them for dear life. Hugs on their way to Tina and Owen, Elaine, Andrew & Helen, and to all my lovely wilsonettes that need, want or could just do with them,
love and crafty hugs

lorraine eastwood said...

Good afternoon lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

What a fabulous card, love the rich sumptuous colours....and the die isn't all that bad either:-)
I don't seem to i do many square cards as such but this die could definitely persuade me has been a while since you have done a square based collection and it appears that it has been met with great approval and welcome, and quite rightly so!
It seems a shame to label this exquisite die as a mere background when it is clearly so much more. I will happily welcome it to my collection, only obstacle being depleted finances....well, toast and jam for a month would be worth the sacrifice:-)
Happy birthday to fellow Wilsonettes Helen and Wheely, hope you both have a fantastic day.
Myra, have a lie in this morning did we? Well it is Sunday i guess we can let you off this once:-)
Yvonne, its so nice to have you back my dear...yes, i am being sincere, just this once though! It must be so good to be back in your own bed again, and i bet the boys have missed their chief chef, bottle washer and launderer:-) Have you been missed? Well, lets just say, I've been bored with being civil to my other blog buddies and feel the need for serious banter offence my dears but nobody takes an insult quite like Yvonne!
Essential cuddles being sent to my besties and those in need, especially Tina T, tina, Elaine &Andrew, Maureen, Myra, Frances,Maria, Theresa, Tracy, Lynda, Wheely, Deb C, Pam, Pat, P, June and many morexxxx

I so like this square card a lot. Like many of those who commented above I tend to go for six inch square cards when having to send through our ever complicated British postal system so appreciate a design that gives me inpiiration like this. My American pal tells me the square cards are not acceptable in the US, if this is true, what a weird situation. They should learn from us!! How else can they appreciate such lovely productions such is today's card?

I love this set...sort of zentangle style. I do love square cards even if the postage is more. After you spend so much time on a card what is a little more postage?
Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday afternoon.

WOW! You have given us crafters so many options with this die. A die that has been designed with three decorative sections and separate cutting edges. What value! I love it when I don't have to fussy cut an outside frame.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Well I think this card is stunning !!! I love, love, love this Atlantic background die !!! Just gorgeous !!! I am so pleased you have made a square background die with this collection. Square dies are most definately my favourite, as I still love to make 8x8 square cards. I don't mind making smaller cards but I still favour the squares over the rectangles !!! I love the designs you have included within this beautiful die set. I could most definitely see myself using every single die in this background set. Thank you for such fab dies and such a fab card to !!! Lots of love to you Sue from Tres x x x

Lots of love to everyone from Tres x x x

Hello Sue,
What a dramatic and elegant card on the blog today in black and gold. I love background dies and this is one that will certainly be put to good use. I love all the swirls and holes. The chrysanthemum is a wonderful addition to your Finishing Touches.
