In The Garden

Hello my crafty friends!  I was quite pleased with this Garden Shadow Box card, which uses items from several different die sets.  I started by cutting the In The Garden Shadow Box out of milk card and adding mounting foam to the back.  I embossed another piece of milk card with the Climbing Vines embossing folder and used it as my backing behind the Shadow Box.  I cut the Family Tree die in brown, added a couple of the small birds from the set in the tree along with the tyre swing and a couple of piles of leaves next to the tree.  I cut the larger spaces in the box so they made one large opening and then allowed the tree to climb out of the box onto the edge of the shadow box.  I filled the three small remaining opening with the birdhouse, clay pot and garden tools.  I used the Garden Fence and Gate die set to cut a long length of fence to cover the entire length of the card.  The card was completed with a simple milk card mat and layer.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  7 1/2" in size.

As soon as I finish doing all the drawings, the winners of the latest die release sets will be posted later on today sometime so don't forget to check back later this afternoon!  All for now, Sue x

June, hope the knee isn't too painful, this cold damp weather won't help.
Tina, hope Owens first day goes well. It is a new start for him. Hugs to you both.
Elaine, I hope Andrew and Helen are both improving, it is so close to the end of Andrews treatment, big family hug for you all.
Dragonsnap, enjoy your holiday, you will miss the family at this precious time and they will miss you too. Have a great time though.
Norah, thank you for your lovely words of Robbie. He has surpassed all of our hopes and expectations with his determination. The terrible damage done to his internal organs has not yet started to heal but we live in hopes. He is our hero, his friends are lifelong and will take good care of him.
Yvonne, you sound really tired, it could be the excitement if the last few days is catching up with you too. Take care of yourself.
Laine, missing you, are you okay honey.
Hugs to all, especially our missing friends.
Time to defrost the car, it's super cold this morning.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, wow a lovely card this morning, you can never go wrong with the shadow box dies and these garden dies fit in so well, you do know that your are onto another winner with these don't you.

Donita Naylor said...

Good morning, Sue and Wilsonettes,

This card looks fun.
Hope everyone has a good Monday.
We might visit the musical instrument museum here. The founder of Target stores built it for $250 million.
One thing about a jewelry show is that you can spend more money than at a papercrafting convention, and come home with a smaller bag. Also, you can't drive a tanzanite ring to work.
My days are numbered here in sunny Arizona and it's cold at home, but I'm looking forward to connecting back up with my crafting supplies.
Especially with Valentine's Day coming up.

Best to everyone.
Love,
Donita

Morning Sue. WOW You have made a stunning card with some beautiful colours of cardstock. I have all your shadow box dies, i just think they are so versatile and with the garden set all the little extras like the garden tools, plant pot and bird box along with the bird, leaves and tyre swing in the family tree collection are so cute. Loving the way you have put the fence right a cross the front. This would make a gorgeous guy or retirement card. Good Luck everyone for the draw later today.

Bejay Roles said...

Morning, Sue,
I love, love, love it!! I really need to get everything to be able to make this one even if it's just for one card. My sister loves her gardening. She moved a year ago from her home and we'll estate listed garden to a place with a smaller plot and she's starting again from scratch. Making a card like this for her might make her smile amid all the hard work she's doing (husband = useless lol).

Good luck everyone in Sue's amazing draw,

Sam Smithard said...

To My Wonderful Dear Friend Sue,
"In The Garden"
I Love Your "Shadow Box Cards" I Think They Are A "Superb Idea" Before You
Brought Them To Us I Had Never Seen Them Or Heard Of Them Before, Now Like
Everyone I'm Blown Away By Them And The Amount Of "Exceptional Cards"
You Can Create.
Its Good To Use Milk Card For A Change And Obviously Works Well With The Other Colours
On Your Card, I Love The Stiched Area Around The Boxes, Which Matches Your Piercing Mat.
Adding "The Stunning Climbing Vines Embossing Folder" The Detail Is So Striking And Looks Extremely
Outstanding As Your Backing Behind Your "Shodow Box Card"
I Love How You've Added "The Stupendous Family Tree Die" Cutting In Brown Foundation Card, Adding A
Couple Of "Sweet Birds" From The Same Die Set, Along With "The Tyre Swing" A Couple Of Bundles Of Leaves
That Have Fallen, I Love How "The Tree" Comes Out Of Its Box, Then Adding All The Fabulous Accessories
"The Bird Box" "The Clay Pot" "The Gardening Tools" Last But Not Least Adding "The Garden Fence And Gate Die Set"
Sue Thank You For Sharing "Your Card Today Is Stupendous" I Love It, Thank You So Very Much For The Daily
Inspiration I Truly Appreciate Everything You Do.
Sue Take Great Care
Wonderful Warm Fond Wishes To Colin And Heather
Sue Lots Of Love And Huge Hugs 🤗 To Yourself

Hi Sue and everyone

You should indeed be pleased with this card Sue. It's lovely. I still think the little birds are so cute, and love how the fence has so much detail in it. That's what makes your designs and dies a cut above the others on the market.

Love Helen xxx

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, love this card and by sheer coincidence the garden shadow box dies are on my desk waiting to make something fabulous lol. The detail you have put into this card without overcrowding it is perfect and I do love the fence running across the front.

Hello Sue,
A really lovely card today showing how well your Dies all interact with each other! I'm about to make a Shadow Box card for my Son's birthday with a Sports theme but as he loves his garden may add a bit from that set! I thought about even putting the trowel and little fork on the banner Sentiment! Thanks for all the inspiration !
It's After School Club to day so I won't see the Draw results until later! All the very best everyone!
June - I hope your husband 's appointment goes well and that you manage to get a breath or two of sea air!!
PP - you have been overdoing things again methinks! Look after yourself! If you aren't careful Laine and Maureen will come down to nurse you back to health! I do hope that thought hasn't made you worse!! Lol!

Norah McPhee said...

Good afternoon Sue and the Wilsonettes,
What a lovely card Sue and that tyre just makes me laugh but its because i oh so remember how many times the rope broke and i landed in the burn. The rope broke because my cousin had cut it to fray it abit because he thought he was being funny. Not as funny as my mum was when she scudded his backside and gave him a lecture the length of your arm on danger, hee hee. We lived between Fallin and the Throsk in an old farmhouse in the middle of the fields with the Admiralty Depot where my daddy worked was behind us fence off by big iron railings. My cousins would come along with their friends from Fallin to play with us as we had the best hide and seek places in the world.Mum would tell Jim he wasn't to go out that gate, and neither he would, he went over it after flinging his trike over first and then peddle hell for leather down the dirt track that we laughing called a road. The kids at Throsk were always bored even though they had toys galore and a playpark to play in, but they didn't have the imagination that went along with playing with the simplest of things. Our favourite time of the year was autumn when the farmer had cut the straw and bailed it up for us to make houses and castles with. Mum used to go off her head at us as the farmers labourer was as blind as a bat and had knocked down the telegraph poles on umpteen occasions because he didn't see it, so if he couldn't see that great thing sticking out of the ground, he was hardly likely to see totie us. Thank you Sue for a lovely memory trip through your tyre in the tree. I don't have these dies but i will find something to make it up and send it to my rotten(hee) cousin and bring back memories for him and in actual fact he is one of my number one protectors along with his 3 brothers who would do anything for me.
Well we have a gorgeous sunny day here at Glenochil earning it it's Costa status again although pictures can be deceiving as it is a tad cold out. My beautiful hills are so imposing against the background of the sky today showing up all it's beautiful images that live on them that your imagination can go wild with what it perceives to be on them. In the valley between two there is a bracken bush the shape looks like a little monkey playing a mandolin or banjo. It's amazing the sights you see when you are this close/far away from them because to many they are just hills. Before the rotten elctricity board came to work on the pylons and wires at the other end of the park in our village, from mum's house the trees were shaped like a big poodle dog that when in full leaveage he looked towards the main road, but in the winter time, he lay looking across the park at our house with this sad look on his face. Then the electricity board cut off his tail and between them and the new people in the end house, they lopped off his head. It was just one of those amazing sights that mother nature does every now and then to make people stop and have another look at her beautiful paintings.
Hugs to all my lovely wilsonette friends that need, could do with or just want one, and i have my fingers crossed for Owen in his new job,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (glenochil village)

Hi Sue and everyone.
Lovely card and as Norah's memories I also have them but our swing
tyre was not over any water so not as dangerous :-)

Very best of luck to everyone in the draw later !

June- good luck for your OH, hope you leg is alright x
Pp- take care and try to have some rest when you can x
Laine- hope you ok, speak to you on facebook x
Pam- thinking often of Robbie, wish him all the best for his future.
Hope you starting to feel better with your chest,hug x
Norah- love reading about your childhood and the memories you have.
Remember we said it before and I would buy it if you would write your
memoirs ! x
Sending many hugs to both Tina's, Elaine,Deb C,Craftynanna, Wheelybad,
and to anyone in pain or hurt or just if you need one. Big ones to my
lovely friends on this blog. x
Take care everyone,

Afternoon Sue, I so look forward to seeing what you create next with your shadow boxes. This is one card for men, gardeners and all of us with memories of playing on a swing like that. In fact you were really someone if you had a tyre to hang on the end of your rope. Otherwise it meant sitting on a most uncomfortable knot! Such a great card. Good luck to everyone for the draw.

I love how you could take all the elements in this collection and use in other designs. This is what makes the Shadow Box collections so versatile. Hope you are all lucky in the draw for one of Sues new release. BarbaraC

Sue this is so lovely, I have bought the tree and the picket fence and will be making
a new home card.
I just hope I can make it as beautiful as your cards.
I love all the details with the extra leaves and the tyre swing and the idea of using this
with the shadow box dies.
It is fabulous.

Hello Sue,

What a wonderful shadow box card you have for us today. It can remind you of Spring or Fall and the wonders of youth when life was carefree and full of fun. The nice thing about your dies is how we can mix and match and everything fits perfectly. What a clever girl you are.

Lovely card today Sue. I used this die yesterday but haven't got the gate and fence. Must look into that. Thank you for sharing this lovely card with us and especially for designing the dies in the first place.
