Lovely card Sue, it's beautiful.
Elaine, special thoughts to you and the family at this very sad time, it's a blessing that Helen has your support to help her.
Donita, what a brilliant idea for making the flowers, must try that one if you don't mind.
June, you are a gem, thank you.
My daughters and grandchildren thought my champers episode was hilarious, I got more than my share , just not to drink lol.
Yvonne, hope the holiday is going well, think our Laine is missing you.
Must push on and finish my granddaughters birthday card, 15 on Sunday, then my nephew is 15 the week after and my eldest grandson is 20 on the 27th. April is a busy month for me.
Little lamb, you have every right to be proud and your gt-granddaughter too, you will be busy going to see all if the performances .
My daily hugs to you all. Hope our missing and poorly friends are okay.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, a beautiful card today, will watch the video later, but I know I will be making it very, very soon.

Pam lovely to have you back with all the comments, thank you xxx

I too have got a few birthdays this month, but only got 2 more to make and they are partly cut out, it is wonderful what inspiration Sue gives us isn't it.

Special hugs to everyone who needs them, you all know who you are. x

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

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. This is absolutely stunning and can't wait to watch the know how tutorial. If only the customers that request cards would ask for something as pretty without trying to fit a theme in such as red wine, black corsa cars and camper vans, not the split screen mind, it has to be a bay window sort !! Oh well at least I have your beauty to look at. Can't wait to see what the fb buddies take from this sample, what I do know is that each one will be as equally stunning as yours. I do hope you are following your CE friends by doing a live show for HOCHANDA at AP again this year as for various reasons I won't be going, health and distance being a couple of the problems 😕 So I'll send a hopeful hug and hope this gets through on the second attempt ! Have a lovely day Sue xxx

Debra K. said...

This is such a lovely card today Sue! This could easily be made on a smaller scale too. Love that gilding polish. Debra x

Morning Sue. A beautiful card with a real WOW factor. The frame is gorgeous with the corners and the gilding wax makes the background really pop. Thanks for another great video and this is a must try for my box of stash.

Good morning Sue. Gorgeous card, love it but I'll have to save the video for later. Do I spy mirror card, very unusual for you Sue.
Pam, pleased that you enjoyed your break, it's wonderful to have you back at your usual spot. Laine, bit worried about you, are you ok? Hugs to all, with special ones to our missing friends and those in pain. Sue xxx

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Enthralled Fans,

Thank you for this beauty! Somehow I saw this before and ordered the gilding polish. I'm trying not to order Olivia, but she has been calling to me.
Today I did some damage at the printers supply store. Got more colors of Stardream, and four colors of vellum, plus three reams of white card stock and a ream of Desert Storm. Also envelopes. My first car didn't cost that much.
Glad you're safely home, Pam. It's lovely of you to endorse the idea of cutting lots of flowers at once. Next I'll do the same with greenery. Or whitery, the way Sue does tone on tone foliage.
Knowing me, making a card is usually an act of desperation under extreme time pressure. Mainly I do my best with what's available. I like John's idea of cutting one of everything from each color as soon as he gets new dies and paper.
Isn't that gold mirror paper elegant peeking out from behind gracious Olivia!
Best to everyone.

Morning Sue,
Beautiful elegant card today those noble dies do make lovely frames. This could have flowers and tulle added to it for a lovely wedding or anniversary card and perhaps a few pearls here and there. I have been cutting orange blossom leaves in various colours, as this is my go to die for foliage. I now have quite a few that I can just choose from when adding flowers and embellishments to my cards. Thank you for your video, it is so kind of you.
Hugs xx

June, you did a great job with your summary, really appreciated it.
Thank you for the idea of a Flower Making Retreat ... I will pass, unless it was here in the North East of Scotland.
I have cut out approx 25/30 flowers to be made up today. They are for a lady who was at a Demo I did a few weeks ago.
Guess what I am doing today, good job I love making flowers.

Hi Sue,

A really elegant card this morning, love all the framing and the embossed background highlighted with the Enchanted Gold gilding polish...the Olivia die makes a stunning focal point especially when used with the pierced circles...were you thinking of a chrysanthemum flower when you designed that one?...that's what it reminds me of...

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, yes today's card is much more to my liking :-) Love P's description of a stately home ceiling and the clean simplicity of it. Although it is beautiful just as it is you could jazz it up a bit with flowers etc. if you so wanted to. The brambled rose embossing folder is going on the list along with Olivia. Thank you for the usual very informative video.

Pat L - enjoy your holiday in Spain and I hope everyone has a good time at the wedding.


Jaye said...

I love this elegant card and the colour you've made it in, Sue. It looks so opulent, but it's also one that can be adapted to use for any occasion. Thank you so much for the videos, you make things so clear and I learn so much.

Lorraine Freeman said...

Sue, I love today's card as the framing is so exquisitely done. Love the mirror card reflecting too.
Sorry to hear of Helen's Mum passing, my condolences to all concerned.
Not caught up any further than that I'm afraid.
Feeling really bleurgh today instead of getting better. More frustrating than usual as eldest son is on a visit home so would like to be able to go out with him. Hopefully next week before he goes home.
Take care all my blog buddies.

Hi Sue and everyone.
Gorgeous card Sue and the Olivia die is lovely. At Julias work shop we
made her into a rosette which I liked. Thank you for the tutorial,
always a great help. Like your pretty top !

Pam- nice to see you back at top. Hope the champagne tasted good too
and it was not all down your trousers :-)
Littlelamb- how lovely to hear that the grand children are doing so well.
Hopefully they continue and make something of it. Hope to see you at AP.
June- hope to see you too this time if OH let you go :-)
Maybe we should all have a Wilsonette badge with our names on them so
we know who is who. Pp gave stickers out one year, they were helpful.
Pat- envy you going to Spain. Have a wonderful time and enjoy the wedding.
Elaine- many hugs to you all. Hope everything alright with Andrew.
Carmen- we can sponsor eachother if you like but knowing me, this book
of mine wont turn into just a little list to soon because I still trying
to get some dies when Sue just started to make them. Can you buy her dies
and stamps easily where you live ?
Wheelybad- hope you are okay and Billy boy is fine,miss you
Sending warm hugs to anyone not feeling too good at the moment and I
wish you better soon. Tina and Nannatina, missing you.
Take care all, Maria x

Littlelamb said...

Beautiful card and great. Tutorial. Thank you Sue. I love the Olivia die. Liked it as soon as I saw it. Just need the corner dies now. Not long to Ally Pally so will look then. Started my list. Thank you Pam. Hope none of the competitions clash. Nearest to Eldest granddaughter though the others are further away and in different directions. Good to see you back Pam although June did a very good job whilst you were away. Echoing your comments.

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
The Olivia Die is at the top of my List . It really is lovely. Thank you for the great video and beautiful card. I don't have the corners either but I have other corners . Having said that I love the Atlantic Ocean set but only have the Background Die so far. Being able to just introduce the sliver of gold in the frame emphasises the need for both sets! Currently I just have Set A. They are brilliant dies! I do like the soft gold of that gilding polish as well. It's so subtle but lights up the card. Like the EF as well! I rather like it all!!!
Pat L - have a lovely time in Spain - safe travel and I hope you enjoy the Wedding! Don't forget your hat!!!
Laine - you were very quiet yesterday! Sending you a hug and hoping you aren't unwell. x
Pam - lovely to have you back but didn't June do well!!!
Love to all those going through troubled times! Missing Tina and Tina. Miss Sheila Turner too. If you look in Sheila I think of you often. Also Jean Prescott. Hope you ladies are alright.
Love to all, Myra xxx


This is another lovely card & think with some colour tweaking - or praps even not - it would be a great blokes' card. Thank you Sue xx

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

This is a WOW! It's stunning, elegant, regal or is it classy. What is the appropriate word? In this case, it's all of them. The added touch of the Enchanted Gold Gilding polish adds just the right amount of shimmer. The video as usual was very informative and had nice hints and tips. I find myself checking You Tube each day as well as your blog to see if you have posted anything new. I'm always excited when I see something from you there.

Wishing everyone a lovely day.

Saba said...

Hello Sue,
You are spot on with your description it is a truly elegant card. Thoroughly enjoyed watching your video and it made me realise just how much I need Set B! The Brambled Rose looks stunning, even more so with the gilding polish applied. Love the hint of gold Miri card in the frame and behind the Olivia. I think I need to order the sweet sentiment stamps as well, they are so clear. I saw one of them in the flesh today! My card from your Wednesday give away arrived in the post!! I can't begin to describe just how beautiful it is. There are layers upon layers of gorgeousness within it. As I'm sure every crafter would, I spent ages examining how it was built up, turning it this way and that, trying to peek underneath to see how many layers of foam you used and generally investigating ever aspect of it. Thank you so very very much Sue, I will treasure it.

Elaine good to hear Helen is coping, you are all in my thoughts.
Lorraine sorry you are feeling "Bleurgh" hope you feel brighter soon. love the expression though.
Pam it was good to see you back where you belong, whatever will we do if you go away for a fortnight. June was a star in your absence.
Pat L have a lovely holiday and enjoy the wedding, maybe a fascinator instead of a hat, easier to transport.
Laine you haven't been in yet, hope all is well.
Well I've splashed out on a new cabin sized suitcase today ready for my trip home next week. It means I will be able to pack more than one pair of knickers and a t shirt in my main suitcase for my stay and still have room to bring some of Sue's new crafting goodies home.
Love and Hugs

Sandra said...

Hi Sue,
Very classy card today, I love it and I love that sentiment too, living the life we do we do, we are always 'missing' someone. I remember when Paul and I first met, he was away for months and months, Over the course of a year I must have purchased every single
'Missing you' card on the market, just think of the money I could have saved if I was making cards all those years ago!!
3 more sleeps until Ally Pally, I just can't wait, I hope to get to meet some of you lovely ladies too.

Anonymous said...

Hi Sue,

Gorgeous card that could be adapted for so many occasions as you said. The milk and gold is an elegant combination. Love the brambled rose embossing folder. The gilding polish makes the background very beautiful, very elegant. Thank you for the videos. You make things so clear and I learn so much from each tutorial.

Pam – Good to have to back.
Elaine – Send to you all extra hugs at this sad times. You are in my thoughts.
Pat L – Have a safe trip. Enjoy your holiday in Spain. Congratulations to the new couple!
Maria – I found only one store in Canada carrying Sue’s dies and stamps. I ordered from them 2 times so far. The orders came within 3 days. You pay a lot of taxes, dollar conversion, shipping, etc. A while ago I ordered more dies (to qualify for “free” shipping) paying a small fortune. I didn’t receive the order as of yet so I emailed them … 3-5 days delivery time will be more like 1-2 weeks. I am not happy with them at this moment. I really hope to get it tomorrow. Fingers crossed. I asked Easter Bunny (my hubby) to order a few dies from Sue’s new collection, from Joanna Sheen. This will be a very interesting experiment to see how much we have to pay for a parcel coming from UK.
Also, I like your idea of Wilsonette badge. Unfortunately I won’t be there.
Sandra - Funny way to count the days till Ally Pally. I can feel your excitement. Why only 3 more sleeps? I count 4?!
Saba – Thank you for English lesson. I learned a new expression “have splashed out”.
Laine – Is everything OK there? Some ladies are missing you ... including myself :).

Best wishes,
Still a newbie to Craft / Not longer the newest and the only Canadian Wilsonette
