Finishing Touches

Hello there my crafty friends!  Welcome to the final post of the April die release blog launch.  I have so enjoyed showing them to you, I do hope that you have liked what you have seen, maybe even have a favourite or two perhaps??  This blog post is dedicated to the final two dies in the release; the Whimsical Leaves and the Sweet William die sets.  Both sets can be seen in use in the sample shown here.  The Sweet William set can be cut and used in a number of ways to give you different effects for your floral elements.  The Whimsical leaves offer the perfect accent for use with this flowers and many others as well.  For a final time, I will ask you to leave a comment if you would like a chance at winning either of these two sets.  You have some time to get caught up with any posts you may have missed as the drawing won't be done and posted until the 27th of April as I will be away doing a small trade show for several days.  Please don't forget to make your name memorable on any of your posts and to check back on the 27th to see if your name has been drawn!  Thanks for taking the time to stop by and see all the new dies!  All for now, Sue x

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue and everyone

What a finale! Gorgeous card. Love the dies too. How clever to use the cross as a background as well.

Been great being spoilt with all these extra posts, will miss them. I was going to say I hope you can have a rest, but that doesn't look likely for a while. Take care. Thank you for all your hard work.

Love Helen xxx

Finishing off with a 'classic' Sue card but using two beautiful sets of dies - once more can't compliment you enough on your flower and foliage finishing touch dies and definitely my go to every time. Beautiful and thanks for sharing such a wonderful set of posts for the new dies.. You've made it extremely difficult for me to put them in order for my wish list ....lol may just have to have the lot when the husband isn't looking... Thanks again

Hi Sue,

Tonight’s card is just fabulous. Elegant, simple, versatile is what I can say about these two sets of dies. I love the completely different looks that can be created using Sweet Williams die set. You used them already on some cards during of this blog launch and just love them.

Sue, you brought us so much joy over the last days by sharing all these stunning cards and dies during of the amazing blog launch. It was an incredible experience for me. I enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you so much for all your hard work, your extraordinary talent and creative mind, for all the inspiration and your generosity at giving a die away to the winners commenting on the blog. I learned so much these days! The new products are so versatile and beautiful. My wish list is so long … I will struggle to priorities the dies.

Your blog, Sue, climbed on #7! Congratulations!

Enjoy the trade show. Big hugs to you, Sue.

Good luck everyone.

Yorks butterfly said...

Him Sue what a lovely pair of course to finish your new die release. I have to say that my favourites​ are the Indonesian set of dies but there are so many others that choosing a favourite is very difficult, as some of the dies I was not sure about until I saw them used on a card and then I loved them. My only problem is how to pay for the ones I would love to have and which order to get them, as I'm still trying to catch up on your previous die releases.
Great launch Sue thank you.

Yorkie girl said...

Hi Sue and everyone
Well sue you're must be so proud of your collection it's fantastic
Your final post is again a beautiful card designed using your dies gorgeous just gorgeous I see you have used the new cross die to make your background brilliant
I still have my favourite though mine has to be the butterfly I do love that one
Thank you Sue for your generosity in giving us all the opportunity of winning one of your new collection

Narrowboat girl said...

What a fab way to finish of your new launch Sue. Love the sweet William die, it too looks a little like parchment craft. Think it would look great cut in vellum. The leaves have a querky look to them that is very different. Congratulations on another fantastic set of dies

Karen Drew said...

Gorgeous card. I love the daintiness of the whimsical leaves. Such a shame we have come to the end of another launch. Will miss popping in several times a day for another dose of inspiration. Have especially loved the stained glass dies. So many different ways that they can be used to make them look so different.

Hello Sue,
What a lovely card to finish a very exciting few days! It's time to look at everything again and make decisions! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to win a Die but as I've said before we are all winner whether we win a Die or not as we have learned so much. Thank you for everything and I hope your Trade Show goes well.
I'm looking forward to watching John this evening at 8pm or 10 pm if there are interruptions here!!
Just a word on Maureen- I rang her husband and Maureen's phone has gone kaput!! It was probably over use!! All her numbers are on that . That's why we haven't heard since Sunday lunch time. She has been walking a little today and Consultant very pleased with her! She won't be home until maybe Friday but she is making progress which is the main thing! Thanks for all the lovely caring thoughts and messages.
Love to all,
PS - Laine hope your Mum is ok! Thinking of you both!

Hello Sue,

What a fantastic way to end the launch but with a beautiful card featuring the Sweet Williams and the Whimsical Leaves, they remind me a little of the Family Tree. Both are going to be a fabulous addition to my Finishing Touches collection. How very clever of you to use the Elegant Cross to make your background.

It has been so much fun over the last days enjoying all these gorgeous cards and dies during your amazing blog launch. It was incredible to see what was new each day. Your creativity and talent are just amazing. Thank you for sharing with all of us.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

What a beautiful finale. The past few days have been a real treat. It's just lovely to see where you were when I first found you and the blog to where you are one. I bet you never ever in your wildest dreams thought you'd be in a position to actually design your OWN collection of dies, with YOUR name as designer. Well lovely lady the glory is all yours, from the very first European collections to now your ideas and knowledge of craft has meant what you've needed or wished you'd had you've designed and shared with us. I've never been so lucky as I am now since I found Sue Wilson and Particraft, you have given me the reason to wake up and craft, helped me through bad times and shared my wonderful times and that is why I'm a regular every dayer. We've watched your work change from the Spellbinder day's to now and the time and love you put into your samples radiates through to your blog and onto us. This maybe the last post of the launch but it's as gorgeous as the first. It's a die I shall definitely be owning one way or another and that's a cert. Now seems the right time to say thank you again for your big heart.
To those followers that appear during die launches then disappear until the next please have some thought for Sue and how it makes her feel. I see someone has mentioned that the blog has risen to 7th position from 8th ! Considering it use to hold the #1 spot, 7th is so upsetting but if all those from the UK that only follow Sue during launch continue to follow everyday hopefully you will make a difference and help get this deserving wonderful blog back to its top spot were it should be ! After all its our way of saying "thank you for all you do"

So I'm thanking you Sue for more wonderful dies and and the inspiration you have given us this week. Hope you've enjoyed it too ☺
Sending love n hugs till tomorrow xxx

Diane Green said...

Hi Sue

Hi Sue,

Totally discombobulating!!!!!

Utterly divine card showcasing these gorgeous dies, but now I have far too many 'must haves'. What's a girl to do? You've made it far too difficult.
The final blog comes around far too quickly, but I suppose all good things come to an end (hopefully not for too long tho).
It's been awe inspiring and I'm looking forward to the many samples and videos to come.
Thank you so much for sharing.

Good evening lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

Wow! This has to be my most favourite card sample of the launch, everything about it screams class, sophistication and sheer elegance...I particularly adore the background and how you have utilised the cross die to create a stunning backdrop to the featured dies.
The Finishing Touches collection are an absolute must have for any serious card maker who seeks to elevate their cards from the ordinary to the EXTRAordinary, these two will be a welcome addition.
Many thanks Sue, for all of the hard work and dedication you put into your craft because we are always the lucky beneficiaries who, with your tutelage, have taken our cardmaking skills to another level. Your generosity deserves a special mention too, we all really appreciate the opportunity to receive one of your fabulous dies, all you require of us is genuine feedback so thanks again:-)
Thankyou to all my blog friends who have wished my Mum well with her hospital procedure today, she was up with the larks at 5.30am....even you would be impressed Pam:-)....in preparation for her ambulance calling after 8am. Her procedure went as planned, they removed 3 polyps but thankfully all went well. She returned after lunch, they were very kind at the hospital and gave her a tuna sandwich and some tea plus she tucked into the remainder of the Upsidedown Trifle when she got home. She is very tired and struggling to stay awake this evening, I'm sure that a good nights sleep will do her the world of good.
Myra, good to get some news about Maureen, glad she's alright and may be coming home by the end of the week....what has she fractured? George will be so pleased and relieved though, I hope that he is managing to cope with his situation, send them both my lovexxx
Elaine, well done Helen! I hope Andrew isn't a sore loser:-) I'm glad they've had a good time, they deserve it. Hope that you're okay too and the trip to the GP was nothing serious, take carexxx
Pam, I'm so glad you're feeling well enough to return to work, just a pity that they can't be more understanding about your illness:-( Don't be pressurised by them, and stand your ground because their attitude stinks!
Yvonne, lovely catch up though i was crushed to discover Percy's fate:-) Glad that you're back on form, as much as i am loathe to admit it, I actually missed you on the blog and the incessant texts:-)
Feeling quite drained now though, I'm not saying a chat with Yvonne is draining but.........:-)
Back to normality on the blog tomorrow then, hope some of our new commentators continue to join us after the blogathon, Sue deserves to know just how much we appreciate her and all she does. Hope that you have a fab Trade Show Suexxx
Hugs to all my blog buddies, especially those in special needxxx

Love the whimsical leaves.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a lovely 'proper' Sue-style card to end the collection launch. The very name Sweet William invokes happy childhood memories for me as my mother grew them in the garden that she created and I love them and their scent; the dies will definitely be coming home to me. The Whimsical Leaves will be joining all of your other leaves on my desk - it will look like autumn in summer with leaves everywhere lol.
Thank you so much for a brilliant launch with so many beautiful samples and thank you for giving us all the opportunity to win one of your fabulous dies. I would like to think that you will now be taking a rest but as you are going to a trade show that obviously isn't going to happen! Hope that it goes well for you. Thanks again for all your hard work that makes us all much better crafters.

Saba said...

Hello Sue,
What a finale to a wonderful week of show stopping cards and fabulous dies. The whimsical leaves are a must have and sweet Williams have slipped onto my wish list as well. It looks like I'll be paying excess baggage on my return trip. Thank you Sue for all your hard work, your inspiration and most of all for your generosity in offering us all the opportunity to win one of your new collection.
Good luck at the show, hope it's a great success but not too tiring.

Pam I'm appalled at your work situation. Go to the GP and get a sick note for a couple of weeks, that'll teach em!
Yvonne ! I have two pesky pigeons keep,trying to " make a baby" on my balcony. I've called them Bill and Betty amongst other things. I've bought a water pistol!!!
Laine so glad all went well for your mum today. Hope she feels brighter after a good nights sleep.
Myra glad you remembered the best wishes this time, I know you wouldn't want to add an extra comment during a launch.

Good luck to everyone for the draw
Saba. xxx

Evening Sue. Beautiful card to end your fabulous April launch. The Sweet William and whimsical leaf dies are must haves for everyone.
Thank you very much for all the wonderful inspiration you have given us over the last week. So many gorgeous dies to choose from, it's hard to choose favourites but Think they are the Indonesian background followed closely by your stunning butterfly.
Also thank you for your generosity in allowing some of us to win one of your dies.
Take care, xx

Sam Smithard said...

To My Wonderful Dear Friend Sue,
What A "MASTERPIECE" To End Your Tremendous April 2017 Release
I Love The Extremely Exquisite, "Sweet Williams Flower Die Set" Your So Extremely Clever
When Producing Flower Dies, Then You've Produced The Very Beautiful "Whimsical Leaves"
Cut Out Of "Coconut White Card"
The Card You Have Produced For Your "Finale" Could Not Have Been Any Better I Love The
Fabulous Background Where You've Cut Out Numerous Of "The Elegant Cross Dies"
(You're So Extremely Talented) I Presume You Placed These Onto A Sticky Sheet, Once Finished
You Added One Of "The Cosmic Shimmer Glitters" The Background Looks So Luxurious
Only You My Friend Could Think Of That To Use "The Elegant Cross" In Such A Divine Way.
Once Again Thinking Out Of The Box...
Thank You For Sharing
Sue, Take Great Care
Lots Of Love Also Huge Hugs 🤗
From Sam xxx

Sandi S said...

Hi Sue love your beautiful card. These dies are lovely. I am gutted that I missed your shows on Hochanda but have been in hospital with Pneumonia all weekend. Hopefully will try and see them on catchup. Shall miss having blogs to see all day. It was lovely to meet you again at Ally Pally and I loved the techniques you showed me. You must never stop with all the lovely dies you think up and design. Take care and I hope you can have a break soon. Love Sandra Hertford xx

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW !!! What a stunning card to finish your amazing new die release !!! This card is what I call a "proper" Sue Wilson style card !!! Classic, Beautiful, and very Elegant. I love how you have used the new Cross die for your background. I have to say Sue that I think only a genious such as yourself would come up with this idea !!! So very clever. Your Sweet William flowers are gorgeous, as are your Whimical Leaves dies. I really love them both. I can see lots of possibilities with these die sets. I cannot thank you enough for everything that you do to bring such joy and sunshine into my crafty world !!! Thank you. Love from Tres x x x
