Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

Hi crafters!  Just one post for today, but at least it is a card giveaway day!  I used a piece of blush card and embossed it with the Jacobean Floral embossing folder for background texture.  Next I used the Double Pierced Noble Squares to make a multi-layered frame out of both black and coconut white card.  I decided to fill my frame with a wreath made from the Striped Nasturtium flowers.  I made nine flowers of them of varying sizes by cutting the solid die in black and adding the outline die cut in white.  Each flower was made by cutting two of the same sized flowers and offsetting them, then adding stamens to the centres for interest.  I attached all the flowers in a wreath shape in the frame and added a sentiment that was cut out with the Pierced Flags die set.  I finished them off with a blush seam binding bow on the side.  I added a black crystal sparkler and a couple of matching stick pins as embellishments.  White, black and blush mats and layers were added to complete the card.  The finished size is 8 1/4" x  8 1/4" in size.  Leave a comment if you would like a chance to win this card.  The winner will be announced on Saturday's blog post.  All for now, Sue x

Pam said...

Beautiful card for our back to normal day after the launch. Stunning ring of flowers.
You must be very happy Sue that your new collection has been such a resounding success, all credit is due to you.
Laine, Hapoy to hear Mum is home and okay, she will probably be tired fir a few days, make her take it easy.
Work is work I'm afraid, they talk the talk big style but they don't walk the walk and it doesn't help that some managers seem to enjoy the process as a way if beating the staff, what a way to run an organisation.
Lots of comments asking occasional bloggers to make it a regular visit, please pop in daily, it would mean so much to Sue to get the ratings back up, we don't bite and we love new people commenting along with us.
Hugs to all, especially Maureen and Geirge, CraftySuetoos Mum and all if our poorly and missing friends, we miss you.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Only ONE ??!! Lol.

Good morning Sue. There maybe only one today but what an absolute beauty and will last me all day. Congratulations on another fantastic collection that is selling out fast already but not surprising really they usually do. It was such a lovely launch and I only hope you enjoyed reading the many many comments that you deserve - not only at launch though ! Hoping you are feeling better now than you did, you must have been thoroughly exhausted by the time AP came round again.
Anyway I'll send my love n hugs and hope you have an enjoyable day xx

CraftySuetoo said...

Good morning Sue. Beautiful card, love everything about it and I'm always happy when there's a bow and some of your stick pins. Thank you for a wonderful launch, I look forward to seeing more of your inspiration in the coming weeks.
Thanks to everyone for their good wishes, mam is still in hospital but finally had an MRI scan yesterday so we're just waiting for results.
Pam, sometimes I wonder whether managers bother to engage their brain and consider circumstances, or if they are just ticking boxes! Hope that you're feeling better though.
Sending special wishes to anyone in pain or caring for a loved one, hugs to all. Sue xxx

Dawn Searle said...

Good morning Sue,
What a stunning card for your giveaway this week, just gorgeous. I love the colours and great to see bows and stick pins making a comeback. I have had to sit up with my poorly dog again for most of the night, but took the opportunity to look back through your past blog posts and I am amazed at the wonderful inspirational cards you have shown us over the years. I enjoyed the quiet time to relax and look at them without interruption. I drank coffee and watched the daylight arrive and the beautiful sunrise, although cold it is a lovely start to the day.
I have decided to spend the day making cards, if I can stay awake and today's card is one I am going to try and emulate.
Your new collection of dies are fabulous and I always think that they can't get better, but they do and I love them all.
Hugs xx
Dawn S. in Cambridge

Such a pretty card. I like the addition of the stamens in the flowers. Nice to see the blush card again too. I have tried to order some, but keep missing it when it's back in stock. I do have some honeydew and sherbert hopefully arriving today though.
I like the neatness and symmetry of this card today. Very pretty.

Tressa said...

Lovely card. I like the idea of using the flower dies to create a wreath.

I managed to grab a couple of blush card packs at the Ally Pally so am now inclined to be more generous with its use and might have a go at replicating this card with a twist as I don't have the nasturtium dies yet.


Scottydog said...

What a lovely card today Sue with your lovely signature stick pins. Love the colour combination making the design so striking.
As you can see veryone enjoyed the die launch. You must be very happy this morning at how well received they have been. Hope the trade show goes well and they don't work you too hard! Take care & thank you Sue.

Hi Sue,

Very pretty card - my Striped Nasturtiums are back home with me now that Sis has finished playing with them so I can make my own wreath with them...

I also need to rationalise my wish list as pennies won't stretch far enough to buy all my new favourties at once but it was a fabulous launch with lots of new concepts and I'm really looking forward to seeing more card samples to showcase how to use them to best effect...

Oh Sue, it's almost a relief to be back to normal - so much temptation! Been a lovely few days and here we are with another giveaway. Beautiful card, made even lovelier with a bow and stick pins putting in an appearance.
Pam - hope the bosses are being kind to you. Saw just the last of Timothy Spall programme yesterday evening - and believe there was a glimpse of your lovely view from the office in Hartlepool! Have to say didn't have a clue where it is and it's been a revelation. Such a fab location.
Theresa G - thanks - Saffron still okay but we are on limited time.
Laine, pleased things were good for your Mum - trifle always helps!!
Fluffycat - hugs, too. Is Mr Fluffy anywhere near full recovery yet?
Good wishes for all our poorly friends.

'P' - Mr F is quite happy walking around the house now most days without a stick but going out is still difficult. I am hoping that the better weather will encourage him out into the garden, at least, to help strengthen his leg. Paws crossed for Saffron and hope that you can keep her pain free.

I've seen the Nasturtiums used on a lot of your cards, Sue. I have been putting off getting them as I wanted the Noble Collection of Ornate Frames so badly. Now that I have the frames, I can work on getting the Nasturtiums. I also love your card and need to try using the pearlized paper that you mention a lot. My cards are much simpler than your's but I get so many compliments on them from using your dies. Your dies are gorgeous and make such pretty cards all on their own. Thank you for designing such lovely dies. I can't wait for your April release to reach the stores here in the U.S.

"Ring around the Roses, A Pocket full of Posies". Sorry, this phrase just came to me as I viewed today's card with visions of playtime during Brownie Scouts - more than a half century ago! Lovely card today with a dramatic flare with the use of these colors. I really like blush card, but it has been hard to find the last couple of years. So glad I have recently found some blush card in regular and heavy weight card stock. Thank you for sharing your ideas. I enjoyed your latest show on Hochanda. Your kitty-cat is so cute peeking behind your fish bowl. Great idea using hand sanitizer for a water look to the treat cups.

Hello Sue,

What a heavenly wreath of nasturtiums on your lovely card for your giveaway today. It will certainly make someone's day if they are the winner. Your design and color combination are simple but yet very pretty.

I hope that today is a little less hectic for you now that the launch is over. What a wonderful week it was of seeing your new dies and fantastic creations. But most important, thank you for sharing with all of us.

Have a wonderful day.

Beverly from Maryland, USA

A beautiful card for today's giveaway Sue. I love the tiered square frame. I have recently bought these dues but have yet the tackle tiering

Hi Sue,

So great how you made this wreath with those beautiful flowers! I have loved these flowers from the first time I set eyes on them! That why I bought this set of dies. They are so delicate and pretty and complete beautifully every card they are used on. Although I am not a fan of black on the cards, the nasturtiums are beautiful in the black and white. The beautiful blossom pink really shows them off to their full beauty.

I hope you were pleased at the response from your new launch, it is a huge success to me.

Laine - Pleased everything went as planned for your Mum. Broadchurch … yes, all of them look guilty.Ed-probably was framed by the one who did it; Jim & Ian –I ruled them out. Who is left? Leo & Lucas so far. The socks indicate Leo, the keys – Lucas. I can’t wait to watch the next episode on Sunday.I am pretty sure that the one who did it is not Leo or Lucas. There will be a twist, for sure.
Myra / Patricia – Thanks for the update. Sending to Maureen a big hug.
For all new / occasional bloggers – I am new, too. As Pam mentioned, they don't bite, so here I am still alive and one piece, after 2 months posting my comments every day (long or short, depends of my time and my mood). You’ll find many friends here. You can interfere or not in people’s comments, but for sure you’ll have fun reading what we posted. I love reading all the comments they cheer me up now end every day. I agree with Pam & Denise T, it doesn’t take long to leave a comment. If you really enjoyed the blog launch, to leave a few words it is the easiest and simplest way to help Sue to get the rating back up. Hope to see you all back.
To all fellow Canadians – Please pop in daily, I don’t have to be the only Canadian Wilsonette.

Huge disappointment – the only Canadian store that I found, didn’t advertise Sue’s new collection of dies and stamps at all. They don’t even offer these new products yet. I am waiting patiently my order from UK to come.

Hugs for all bloggers.
Still a newbie to Craft / Hopefully not longer the newest, or the only Canadian Wilsonette

I am always wary of using black and white but putting it with the blush makes it something that's really caught my eye and enthusiasm. Thanks x x x

Hi Sue beautiful card IO love the colour combination and the nasturtiums I really will have to buy the nasturtium die they are so lovely
My daughter and family went back home yesterday so I am missing my little grand daughters today our house is very quiet. But on the positive side I did get around to doing some crafting today. I feel I haven't kept updated very well on the goings on with this blog over the last two weeks but hopefully now will be able to catch up.
Sending good wishes to all who need them

Dawn Holben said...

Sue this is such a gorgeous card and so lovely to have it as a give away.

Carol Worwood said...

What a stunning card, Sue you are so talented, so generous of you to offer this as a giveaway, thankyou xx

Saba said...

Hello Sue
Such a beautiful card, once again you have inspired me. I have the nasturtiums flower die but wouldn't have thought to use them in this way, they make a stunning wreath. Nice to see a messy bow and stick pins. Hope the trade show is going well. Congratulations on a fantastic launch week.

Pam managers are a breed unto themselves. Don't let them bring you down!
CraftySue I hope all is well with your mum's MRI scan and you get her back home very soon.
Carmen Patience is a virtue, hope you don't have long to wait for your dies.
Laine hope your mum is feeling recovered today.
Love and hugs for all, special love for our Maureen, it won't be same without you at our meet up.

Good evening lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

Just a quick comment, having a tough day with a migraine:-( I just wanted to congratulate Sue on the success of the launch and compliment her on the timeless beauty of today's most favourite samples always include elements such as flowers, stick pins and ribbon so I am really impressed by your choice for today. Good luck ladies and Rolfi in the draw, I exclude myself on the grounds of greed:-)
Hopefully I will catch up with all the gossip tomorrow, meanwhile huge hugs and all my lovexxx

So feminine and yet so smart!!!
I really love this card!!!

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Oooooh what a gorgeous card !!! I really love this card !!! It's Stunning !!! I love everything about it. The blush background and Embossing Folder is lovely but your Nasturtium flowers are most definately the star of this gorgeous card. I did not think I would like flowers made in black card but with the white outline dies over the top they just look absolutely stunning. I love the beautiful wreath you have made with them. The pierced flag die is the perfect die to accommodate your sentiment and I love the ribbon and fabulous stick pins. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous card today.
Congratulations to you Sue on your amazing new die release. I, personally, have loved everything you have shown us. So much so that I don't know where to start !!! You should be very proud of yourself. You have done a wicked job !!!
I very much enjoyed your Hochanda show to. Some beautiful cards and ideas and fab demo's too !!! I know I shouldn't have but I just could not resist your one day special. I can't wait for the dies to arrive so I can start playing with them. (I had been patiently waiting for these dies to appear on Hochanda. It was not an all of a sudden thing.) I am hopefully going to make two Fathers Day cards with them to begin with. I loved all your ideas, especially the crackle glaze technique you used. Very clever !!!
Sending lots of love to you Sue from Tres x x x

Sending lots of love to everyone from Tres x x x

Evening Sue
Just the one card today? Lol x
Oh but what a card. Stunning. A bow and some beautiful stick pins making a very welcome appearance. The nasturtiums are adorable and the Jacobean Floral embossing folder gives, as always a stunning backdrop. Gorgeous x
Pam - I just do not understand the mentality of some employers and it seems the larger the organisation the worse they seem to be. I have always been so lucky. It would seem that staff morale is not important these days which makes no sense to me at all. Hope you're OK x
I have had a busy day then some friends over this evening so will finish by sending happy thoughts and oodles of love to you all x
Take care
Crafty hugs
