Finishing Touches

Hello bloggers!  Welcome to the final day of the April die release blog launch.  I hope you have really enjoyed what you have seen so far, but it's not over just yet.  We have one more full day of Finishing Touches to premiere.  First up is the new Lace Butterfly die.  Shown here cut out of vellum, you can see the beautiful lacy effect it has.  This die was designed to give the look of Pergamano with a very distinct edge to it to look like torn vellum.  I just love the way it turned out and I hope you will too.  Let me know what you think of it.  If you are as much of a butterfly fan as I am, I am sure that this will be a real "go to" die your collection.  Leave me a comment so you can be added to the drawing to win this one.  Don't forget to make your name memorable so there is no mistaking it is you.  The next post will be online at 12 noon, I do hope you be able to pop back by the blog to have a look.  All for now, Sue x

Love the card and dies, the lacy butterfly us so delicate and ethereal.

Hugs to all especially our missing and poorly friends.

What a fabulous die, so pretty with the lacy wings, it's a favourite already.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, what a way to start the first post of the last day of your blog launch new collection, this butterfly is so gorgeous, it really has so much potential, yes you are onto a winner here, and I also love the sentiment that you have used from your stamp sets.

Hope everyone enjoyed Easter, did you eat lots of chocolate. I reiterate everything that Pam has said, Pam how are you feeling now, any better?

See you for the next post.

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

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Wow Sue. Good morning. I had to look a tiny bit longer to see this morning's treat lol and it does just as you wanted, looks so delicate especially cut in vellum. The floral, vase, and expression dies so far are on the top of my list only because my brain isn't crafty enough to see a set of 5 frame and tag dies and see many future designs and cards from them like my fb buddies do so beautifully and professionally so the beautiful selection of flowers are my love and saviour cuz if you can't find your mojo a lovely CAS with a vase and simple but elegant flower plus sentiment makes for an elegant card.
It's been wonderful so far to share your world of dies, and although the launch can't go on indefinitely - our love of your inspiration and died will.

Love n hugs as always xxx

I am sorry I missed your daffodil die post yesterday. I have always loved daffodils and called them happy flowers. Actually I love all flowers, so always look forward to your new collections to see what delights you have come up with and you never disappoint.
I am learning how to do parchment craft and spent hours yesterday picot cutting a butterfly, then this morning I opened your blog and saw this beauty! Butterflies are such a lovely addition to many cards and this one is gorgeous. Thank you.

Anonymous said...

Morning Sue. A stunning card to start your final day blogging your new dies. This butterfly is gorgeous and i love it done in the vellum, it has that parchment look to it, very lacey, delicate and just the right size to fit a few of them on to a photo frame which i am in the middle of doing to put a picture of my first grandchild in which is due in July and these beauties would just finish it off. I have all your butterflies as they are just so gorgeous and with this one cut in vellum it would look fantastic coloured in with pencils. Will see you at 12 o'clock for another of your stunning cards.
Best Wishes.

Beautiful and delicate It appears (to me) that the die is slightly larger than other butterflies you've released ... ? Do could easily be the focal pint of our smaller cards

CROQUET QUEEN said...

Hi Sue,

I'm FLABBERGASTED at how you've managed to achieve such realistic lacework to such a brilliant effect!
Butterflies are always essential, there's a standing joke with my family and friends, if I've put a butterfly on it, there's a boob under it!!! Well with this beauty no more, it's going to take centre stage rightfully on many of my cards from now on, that will keep them guessing as to why I'm making more boobs! LOL!

Beautiful butterfly, Sue, never had the patience for parchment work so love the idea of a good cheat. My lovely cousin once made me a totally fab parchment card - and it took her two days!! Has pride of place with my 'Sue' card.

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue,

Thank you again for all the new dies and ideas. I hope the supply of die sets is enough to meet demand.

Something tells me we're going to be officially introduced to Sweet William today. We saw him go by a couple of times, but we haven't yet had a formal introduction. Reminds me of the cowboy expression: "We howdied but we ain't shook."

Speaking of butterflies, I delighted in using some of the Cascading Butterflies this weekend, as well as the Atlantic Ocean background and my favorite, Striped Nasturtiums, for an 85th birthday card for my future mother-in-law. It didn't turn out as well as the cards I see here and from Sue fans on Facebook, but it was better than anything I made BSW, Before Sue Wilson.

Best of Tuesdays to everyone.

Love,
Donita in Rhode Island.

I got this die at Ally Pally and have used it several times already. It is stunning whatever you cut it out of, card, vellum or mirri card. I have used it several times already, cutting around the outline and using that as a base to put the butterfly on. Iy also looks great backed and small sections of the wings filled in with creative expressions glitter glue or pearls

Who doesn't love butterflies? This is a great addition to your April release and timed so perfectly as we are just now seeing butterflies on the east coast in the US. Sue, I am so impressed with this entire release. You've done a great job! Thank you so much for the opportunity to win some of your awesome dies. It makes me want to do the same and do giveaways on my blog but my giveaway would never compare to what you are offering.

Good afternoon lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

I adore butterflies and this one is no exception. Pergamano is an eye catching technique that takes oodles of time and patience to master so creating a die that has all the delicacy and even the lacy edges of Pergamano is so exciting. I will definitely be investing in this little beauty, its a must have for my collection as an embellishment or even the focal element....plus it will hide a multitude of sins!:-)
Have a lovely afternoon my friendsxxx

I am head over heels in love with this die ad your card is divine! Must have this die! Incredible and stunning! TFS!

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
I had decided that I didn't need any more butterflies! Then you produce this!! How could you! It's really gorgeous and in vellum has a really ethereal look! Lovely card too. I've pinned them all plus matching Dies on a special board! It helps me too as well as hopefully attracting the attention of others!
Diane - I love your description !! Having seen your Pergamano - you are being unkind to yourself! You made me laugh though!
Will try to catch up later!
Love to everyone! PP - great to have you back! Laine has missed you dreadfully!!!

Hi Sue,

Adorable Card! I love butterflies in any shape or form, they are lovely. I own your Cascading Butterflies but you just can never have enough so I added this stunning, delicate butterfly on my list as well.

Sue’s blog is on 7th now! Congratulations.

Absolutely stunning. I am also a butterfly lover so this is perfect. Love the Pergamano look. Being a parcher, this would take ages to try and recreate this in the traditional way. Would love to see more of this style.

Wonderful new dies this round! Many will be on our lists for gifts. Especially this butterfly! Swoon. 😍🙃😍 This is my absolute favorite in this collection! I adore the delicate lacey edges. They do appear to be Pergamano, which I am learning. It is so not easy but definitely worth it. Thank you for adding this to your repertoire!

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

What a lovely card to showcase your new Lace Butterfly die. The butterfly has such a delicate, ethereal look done in vellum. I've been using vellum quite frequently on my cards as I like the translucent look that it gives.
