Tropical Collection

Good morning bloggers!  We are starting today with the new Tropical Collection.  I had a lot of fun working on this one and I hope you will like the results. This post is showcasing the new Message In A Bottle die set and the new Flip Flops.  Both sets are shown here and you can see that there is also a new treat cup shape of the bottle!  The die matches the bottle shape for the perfect shaker card and also comes with an outline as well as a sentiment.  The Flip Flops comes in two sizes and can be easily put together for that 3D look to add to any of your tropical cards.  You will see a lot of these sets in the coming months as they were so much fun to use, I could hardly put them down! LOL  Leave a comment to be entered into the drawing to win one of them.   Tell me what you think of them, how would you use them!  The next post is scheduled for 12 noon today.  I hope to see you back here then for more of the new Tropical Collection!  All for now, Sue x

Stunning card Sue, the dies are igorgeous that beach umbrella in the bottle, so clever.
This die collection is proving to be as beautiful and versatile as the others. I looked at the collection and I'm intrigued as to how you will show them in all of their their glory. Treats ahead I see.
Laine, you have me worried now that you've put me in the debate between you and Yvonne, better keep my head down lol. I'm sorry your Mum still isn't too well, hugs for her.
Elaine, daily hugs for you all, hope Andrew and Helen are feeling a little better.
Dawn Searle, a sad day for you, hope everything goes as well as possible.
My usual hugs for all, especially our missing friends. If the 2 X Tinas look in, we miss you.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hola Sue. Ok so it's not hello from a tropical country but I've not been that lucky, but I'm starting to feel the sun on my back and the sand between my toes looking at this fun set and I bet you are making 'our Sam' even more excited about her looming travels when she see's this fun collection (or part of) ☺ another fantastic idea from the best.
What a wonderful first day Sue. Over 800 hits in one day ☺ if only this could happen every day, I know there are multiple visits from us per day at launch, but it shows that you could get out of 8th position and back to the number one spot where you belong ! Thank you for a great first day and look forward to the wonderful treats you have for us today xxx

Jen said...

I love these. They are really different.

Craftynetty said...

Not so sure about these, as I can't see myself using them much. However, they are a very clever idea and I am sure that I will be seeing some amazing cards made with them. Thank you.

Jan.moogie said...

Now we are entering into my favourite category 3D message in a bottle could be such fun for men and children alike and those flip flops are adorable. xxxxxxxxxxxxx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, now this is what I call a really cool card, although I have ordered loads of the new collection I was unsure about the message in a bottle ones, well after seeing this sample, it looks like I will be ordering this set too - oh my poor bank balance, but you are worth it. When I saw the flip flops front of the dies I first thought of a wishbone.... and the bottle I thought of combining that with the retail therapy dies and the new perfume dies to do a scene like a bubble bath.....that is what popped into my head anyway, how daft is that.

Pam how are you feeling, hope on the mend, and I reiterate everything you have said.

I am off to the dentist this morning, might have to have a tooth out, so not looking forward to that one little bit.

Catch up later when I get back as I am so looking forward to the next samples.

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

Jennie - The Crafty Wife said...

Aw, the bottle with the sand and umbrella is so cute. There's endless possibilities with sequins, tiny beads etc. Love the flipflops, I'd use them in a summer holiday album or scrap page.

Anonymous said...

Really great fun dies, Sue, and such a happy card. Although not ones I'd buy, always love to see your ideas on how to use all of your babies. A good start to the day!
Pam - thanks, echoing again. Haven't had time to read all the comments so rely on you.
Hugs to all.

BridgetCG said...

Hi Sue, well these two die sets are just a winner on every front, there at so many things you could do with them, and for many occasions too. I think they would be great for a bon voyage card. You card is brilliant and shows them off to perfection. Bx

Chris Curry said...

This card is a fun card, definitely makes you smile. Thank you Sue. X

Janice K said...

Good morning Sue,
Oh, I can see the bottle die and treat cup having multiple uses!!!! A celebration card using it for champagne for one! I'm really looking forward to seeing all your ideas and inspiration in the coming weeks. Beautiful card. X

Dawn Searle said...

Morning Sue
Love this set of dies, but unfortunately at this time of the morning my brain is not functioning enough to think how to use them, I am sure I will come up with some ideas later, but why a super idea these type of dies are, so versatile for male or female.

Thank you Pam for your kind words 💋
Hugs to everyone xx

Dragonsnap2 said...

Fabulous ideas for these dies. My head is reeling with all the possibilities. Love the parasol in the bottle. Not sure I'd have thought of that. This release is already a winner as far as I'm concerned. Only problem is which ones to buy first.
Hope you're feeling better Pam and echoing all your wishes.
Keep, safe, healthy and happy everyone.
Crafty hugs,

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

"Time In A Bottle" is what comes to mind seeing this card. It reminds me of the many times I spent at the beach when life was all about having fun with out a worry in the world. Those were the days. The new treat bottle is delightful and fun. And the flip flops - now who can go to the beach without them.

Cannot wait to see what other delights you have in store for us.

Beverly from Maryland, USA

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue and everyone

A fun card today. The flip flops are so cute. There's a sneaky peak of the hibiscus die too. Good idea using the little umbrella as a parasol.

Love Helen xxx

Pam, thanks for keeping us up to date, hope that you're starting to feel better too. Apologies to everyone but I find it difficult to keep up with all the comments during launch weeks. Hugs to all. Sue xxx

Yvonne19856 said...

Morning Sue. Oh my. What an unusual concept. Although I love the dies and the card, I'm not too sure it's for me. I think I would struggle with idea makes for these dies. Maybe I need to get them just to get my creative juices flowing. Xxx

Maria Illsley said...

What an unusual card but a great idea the flip flops are great. Where do you get your inspiration from

Now this is something really different. I love the flip flops!

Morning Sue
I will admit that I have already ordered the tropical collection and bottle die. They caught my eye as soon as I saw your new release so I pre ordered them x
They are so fun and I am so excited to see you working your magic with them x
See, day 2 and I'm here again in the middle of the night. It was not planned but I was woken at 5.30 by a cat fight which must have been right outside the house because it was so loud. It is such a horrible noise. I just could not get back to sleep.
Anyway George bought me a coffee because he was getting ready for work so here I am - despite what Laine had to say about the matter. Pam - Laine had no right to drag you into our disagreement. She has no scruples, but you don't need me to tell you that do you??!! x
Day 2 of this fabulous launch has begun with a card which is bright and summery - I hope this is how today's weather will be x
Happy thoughts and oodles of love to everyone x
Take care
Crafty hugs

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, How innovative is this set of dies !! A fabulous card, and I can see me using it as a 'message in a bottle' card, could be used for males with a little treasure map inside and could be used also for an 'I love you' message for Valentine's etc. I love this !! I love all your die sets that can be used for 'shaker' cards as I make lots and lots of these cards.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Clai01 said...

Morning Sue
A treasure map maybe hidden in the bottle or a party invite message ? or an address location?
for a child's pirate themed birthday card/ party invitation, secret message type of ideas ?
Fancy dress or Halloween party too perhaps, message in a bottle of Champagne with lots of shaker card sparkles? decorated as per theme.
Really different and lovely idea xx

Karen Drew said...

Such a fun idea. Love it

Hi Sue
What a fun card to start the day. I can see people having a lot of fun with this one. I looked at the flip flop die quickly and my brain didn't register the wishbones were part of the flip flop, I was trying to work out what flower they would make! Oh dear whoops! Haha. Thank you for sharing.
Love Diane G xxx
Pam hope you are on the mend. Echoing your comments xxxx

Hi Sue
Wow wow wow such a wonderful card. Reminds me of our holidays sending back postcards. The bottle is a great idea. I echo June Smiths idea that it could be a bottle of bubble bath. I had the please of meeting June at Ally Pally. Such a lovely lady. Love the flip flops as well if only I could wear them. Look forward to seeing the next card in this set.

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue,

How many other die companies have a working gumball machine? None! How many have a bottle treat cup? None! (I'm guessing.)(I've sure never seen one.)

This bottle is the gumball machine of the April die launch.

At first I wasn't very impressed, and maybe the name threw me off. How much use could there be for a message in a bottle?

But now I see. New Year's, wedding, anniversary, men's, bon voyage, congratulations, cookout or tailgate party invitation, Father's Day (soda color, with label saying World's Best Pop) Lay it sideways and put a sailboat inside. We're going to need a stamp set of labels and a ship for the bottle! Whoever said catsup or steak sauce bottle, that was clever! And I like the idea of a treasure map. In that case, the top could be cut off the mouth of the treat cup to get the map inside. It's not like it has to be sealed because you're not putting glitter in.

I can see the flip-flops being useful, too.

Rats, I was hoping to sit this one out. Now I want them.

Low bat. Gotta go.

Donita in Rhode Island, (to distinguish me from all the other Donitas)

I also love how sand and little shells and a cocktail umbrella aren't a fraction as expensive as glitter or beads

Erica of Wye said...

This is a different kind of card for you Sue though I have noticed there were a few in your last lot that you had, I can see you dong a lot with this set of dies,

Hello Sue,
What a super card - I was almost humming Hawaiian music! It's gorgeous! These flip flops could really be dressed up and I could imagine the larger pair with a Hibiscus flower on the front or pearls or sparkly gems! With one of your little bows from way back they would look very Ted Baker!! Ideas Re flowing a plenty on the blog this morning! The wishbone idea made me smile!!
Great start to the day! Love the bottle and I like the Adirondack chair too!
Another hit!

Good afternoon lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

What a delightful couple of die sets, I'm not at all surprised that you have had so much fun playing with them because the possibilities and ideas for them are endless. As a lapsed Scrapbooker, these dies would prove invaluable in suitably themed pages....particularly love the cute sandals. So much inspiration and ideas from fellow bloggers today, that must really please you Sue, it proves just how utterly fabulous your dies are.
Keeping comments short and sweet until later in the day, don't want to overwhelm everyone with my rubbbish chatter:-)

Oh my gosh, this card is fantastic, I love it, and I love this die concept, and the flip flops are adorable!

Dorothy Macdonald said...

Hi Sue,

As soon as I saw the bottle die my ideas were flowing. So much so, I had to buy it straight away. Not bought the other set of the pair.

I don't make many shaker cards, though I will still use this die for other occasions.

One could add a champagne label for anniversary cards and fill the bottle with heart sequins or similar.

Also one could fill it with numbers for birthday cards ...

Hope everyone has a lovely Easter and Crafty weekend.

Thanks Sue for all your inspirations.

Love Dorothy
of Baldock
