Festive Collection

Hi there my crafty friends!  First up today are a couple of dies that work beautifully together.  Shown here, the Woodland Animals and the Winter Wonderland die sets are on offer this post.  The Forest Animals have a gorgeous set of matching stamps that are available separately that add such detail to these dies, I just love the realistic look that they bring to the die cuts.  The Winter Wonderland sentiment die is one that can be used both in the positive as I have done here or as a negative cut out as well.  The lovely thing about that is not only the versatility, but you can arrange the words in the sentiment to fit whatever space you need for your own projects!  Leave me a comment if you would like to be entered into the drawing to win either one of these sets.  I hope to see you back here at noon today for the second post of the day.  All for now, Sue x

What a lovely start to Day 4, this is gorgeous. Two lovely sets, just love those deer. Stunning card.
I must confess to ordering the stained glass twosome yesterday, looking forward to seeing them in the flesh.
Happy Fathers Day to all dads out there and to my dear dad who died when he was 59, miss you every day Dad.
Maureen, hope the street party raised lots of money for the.hospuce, such a worthy cause. It all sounded such fun and the weather was perfect.
Elaine, hope Andrew and Darren are having a great time. Are you feeling better now Hun.
Saba you and Carmen sure have Laines curiosity working overtime, you are naughty girls.
Julie Laz, hope you get your machine sorted soon, I have the Ebisser which is great, rather fancy the Gemini if I need a new one, looks so much neater too.
Hugs to all, those on holiday have a great time, thinking iof all our poorly and missing friends, missing Norah, so quiet without her, caring hugs for the Kid.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, is it really Day 4 of the new release samples, oh you have my brain going round in circles, these 2 die sets today are fantastic, it is not until you see them made up that you realise how wonderful they are and to have the stamps to go with them really brings the deer etc. to life. Someone is really going to be so happy to receive these.

Pam I reiterate all you have said above, lost my Dad in 2002 but only seems like yesterday but happy fathers day to my husband and sons.

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

Good morning Sue,
A beautiful card to start the day, today's Dies really appeal to me.
Pam! as always I echo your summary.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Thinking of you today Sue, also wonderful memories of my own dad who missed out on watching his gorgeous grand-daughter become mummy to his first great grand-daughter, so like you Sue special thoughts are for our very special and wonderful roll models xx

This sweet, beautiful collection is a must, paper and pen to my left ready for this to be added. Your sample has showcased but a few of these majestic for rest friends, so I look forward to seeing lots more inspiration in the future (unless already made up and you're now into the Autumn release) !! Lol
I can't think of a lovlier way to start a Sunday, and I know we are in for another special day full of wonderful inspiration.
Sending hugs your way xxx

Donita Naylor said...

Songs make such good sentiments because they start the music in people's heads. I'm still in love with your swirly-rumped deer family. Lots of possibilities in the woodland set, because they don't have to be in winter. I can see that big dead tree as a fallen log with moss and squirrels. Interesting to emboss stars in the snow. Thanks again for letting us binge on treats this week.
Love,
Donita

Great woodland set.

Dragonsnap2 said...

I love this card Sue and the dies are gorgeous. Once again you've hit the spot.
Love and hugs to all those missing their dads today. My dad passed away just two weeks after his 52nd birthday when I was just 21. It's over forty years ago now but I still miss him.
Thoughts and prayers to all.
Crafty hugs.

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

What a way to start the day. I love being out in the mountains and watching the wildlife, I go to the National Parks in Western Canada every fall just for that purpose, so this card is just magical. The deer look so lifelike. I especially like all the little critters that you have included and the various trees. Fantastic.

See you for the next posting.

What a magical set of dies so many possible uses for these beautiful dies running
through my head both for Winter and every other season of the year. The sentiment
font is lovely and the Christmas song is one of my favourites.

Happy Father's Day to all Dad's sadly I lost mine when he was 59yrs old such a long
time ago but I still hear his voice in my head and Bless the role model he was to all.

Big gentle hugs to all

Krafty Runner x said...

Good Morning Sue,

It's so surreal that we're waking up to such a perfect winter wonderland scene while the sun is already splitting through the sky and I'm already too hot!! (and it's only 7.30!!)
What a stupendous full set, you've packed a lot into this one and the sentiment being a nice change from the usual, is a valuable addition for any Christmas card.

HAPPY FATHERS DAY! My Dad's 91 and I thank my lucky stars for him, he's my rock! (Sadly we lost my Mum 10 years ago).

Patricia Howarth said...

What a fabulous set of dies Sue. I love the variety of sizes, they would help me enormously with perspective when I'm making scenic cards. The words can be used all year round too with a little bit of snipping.

To My Wonderful Dear Friend Sue,
"The Forest Animals Die Set" Comes Along With A Co-ordinating Matching Stamp Set
Which For Myself Is A Huge Plus........
The Tree Die From 2015 Would Also Be Extremely Useful I Used It A Lot Last Year.....
I Love The Animal Collection Which Includes, Squirrels/Rabbits/Hedgehog/Fox/Birds/Deer Family
Also The Trees Etc:-
I Love You Used The "Twinkle Twinkle" Embossing Folder, For The Background Also The Stunning
"Tree Collection" Cut Out Of Green Card.
It Looks Like You've Stamped Your Deer Family With Black Ink, On Gold Card, Then You've Cut Them Out
Using The Matching Dies....
I Love How You've Added "Iced Snow" To The Bottom Of Your Card, For The Look Of Snow.........
Plus You've Cut Out Your Poinsettias In Beautiful White Vellum Creating A Soft Look To Your Card
You Also Added A Thin White Satin. Ribbon To Create Your Bow........
Sue, Then You've Added Your Remarkable Sentiment Out Of "Gold Card" It's Beautiful With A Superb
Font.
These Are A Definite Die Set/Matching Stamps I Need In My Collection Even If I Cut Them Out Of "Coconut White Card"
I Would Love To Colour Using My "Alcohol Pens Copics"
This Is Such A Versatile Die Set, Also "The Forest Family Stamps" Can Be Used All Year Round,
Great For A Gentleman's Card, With The Extremely Beautiful Hills Of "Scotland" Used As The Background.
Sue, My Wonderful Friend, You've Done It Once Again You've Produced A Set Of Impressive Cutting Dies Also
Phenomenal Stamps To Match.
Sue, Thank You For Your Kindness Also Sharing Lots Of Terrific Ideas Of Christmas Cards For The Coming Months,
Also For The Pinterest Button So We Can Look Back On Your Impressive Work.......

Happy Father's Day one and all. I always have a bit of a wobble on days like this as Steve is not here with me and the boys. As you know my dad was 81 last Sunday and I am so grateful that it looks like he is going to be around for a good while yet x
Was late last night as had an emergency visit to the vet with Dillon. He is not a well dog. Vet said there is a possibility it could be neurological. Anyway no definite answers yet x
I am amused at the Winter Wonderland song whizzing round my head whilst there are blue skies and blazing sunshine. Not terribly appropriate. Lol x

Hello Sue,
A lovely card and a great selection of woodland creatures and trees! A very useful Die set. You really have got something for everyone in this Launch . Something to suit all ages too. Looking forward to seeing what else you do in the weeks ahead! All being well!
Elaine - yes I'm cooking today! It will be nice though. So pleased Andrew enjoyed his surprise - he so deserved to be treated! Well done Darren though for actually planning it all.
Carmen - I am fortunate to have a friend like Maureen! Even though she does sign off " Who on earth is Myra!" Lol .I've met some lovely friends on this blog and some I feel are friends whom I haven't met! Hope that makes sense.
Well I must get on! Have a lovely day everyone!

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a gorgeous card and I adore all of the forest animals. They, along with the stamps, will be joining my collection. I have your previously released trees (which are regularly used) and the deer and I can see all of these lovely new ones playing happily alongside them. I like the font on the sentiment die and that the words are separate so can be placed anywhere, you really do think of everything.

Missing Norah and her descriptions but I can tell you that there is no sunshine on her hills at the moment. Although the hills are beautifully green and clear the sky is full of cloud and there is a stiff breeze blowing. If anyone 'down south' would like to share their sunshine we will happily accept it.

Beverly - the National Parks sound amazing.
Elaine - so pleased that Andrew enjoyed his treat.

Hello Sue,
Really like these dies. The animals and scenery on the first are great, and well, you doesn't like "A Winter Wonderland"? Fabulous.
Pam, I'll find out later this week how much money was raised as all the stall's money and donations have to be collected and totalled. We hope it's good.
Elaine, so good to read that Andrew really enjoyed his treat.
Carmen, I am a member of the Myra Appreciation Society, although to say she's a friend is pushing it ha ha.
Yvonne, so sorry to read about Dillon, hope the cause is soon discovered and treated successfully. Pleased to read that your parents survived their visit to you!!!
Norah pet, happy birthday on this sunny day. Hope you are spoilt and pampered.
A little bit of unnecessary information!!! I am T Total, never drink alcohol. My daughter made the most amazing fruit drink yesterday with strawberries floating on the top. It was in a gigantic jug and she kept filling up my glass. I drank at least half of the jug on my own as others were having wine, etc. At the end she said "have some of the strawberries mam" and put about 6 of them into my glass - they were delicious. My sister in law decided to have some (after she'd been on the wine) and said "It's lovely, what's in it?", to which my daughter listed the ingredients. I wondered why I was having difficulty in finding the right words for things hic. I can't remember what she said but the word liqueur was mentioned a few times ha ha xxx

The die set itself is brilliant with all its variety of woodland creatures. And another lovely sing along sentiment for us to sing along to all day long! Love it.

Norah Happy Birthday hope you have a wonderful day. xxx
Rosemary so glad you didn't laser cut your hubby!
Elaine so happy to hear Andrew enjoyed his treat, it must have done your heart good to know he was having a a good time.
Yvonne I hope they soon find out what is wrong with Dillon and it's not bad news, you must be very worried. You are one of the lucky ones still having your dad but it must be hard knowing the boys are missing theirs today. Big hugs.
Maureen I would have loved to have seen you yesterday, you are hilarious when sober, you being tiddly would have been a sight to see!
For those of you seeing your dads today give them an extra cuddle, for those of us who missing ours cherish the memories.
Love and hugs for all
Saba xxx

Love these woodland animals & can not wait to see the accompanying stamp set. I want them both.

Very nice card. Can't wait to get them all. To hard to pick favourite because they honestly are all great designs. I moved from ONTARIO to ALBERTA and I live an hour away from EDMONTON. If there are any Sue Wilson fans in Edmonton I would love to meet up with some fellow card makers. In the area I live there are no scrapbooking clubs or retreats that I have heard about. I would really like to be around people that will help me grow as a card maker and have a common hobby as me so we will have lots to talk about.

What a beautiful set of Forest Animals and trees. And there are matching stamps. This is good! Your "Walking In A Winter Wonderland" sentiment die cut is perfect for this card design. I like, too, that one can use the positive and the negative parts of this sentiment die. I like your vellum poinsettias. Great design. It reminds me of the times when my husband and I walked into the woods near Christmas time to find that special tree. I always chose a tree that was twenty feet tall! I liked the top of the tree.

Hi Sue,

A winter scene, Perfect Sue. A family of deer, among the trees, so serene, just beautiful and tranquil. Wish I was there!

Thank you Sue for these lovely dies.

What a stunning pair of die sets! The animal set & matching stamps all topped off with the birch trees & words, just gorgeous & not just for Christmas either, Autumn birthday cards for animal lovers no problem anymore. Thanks Sue,just brilliant x

Dawn Holben said...

I love both of these sets and your beautiful card.
I really like the style of the words on the winter wonderland and that the words
are seperate.
And what can i say about the absolutely wonderful deer set and trees.
I also like the idea of a matching stamp too.

STELLA MUNN said...

Another versatile one. Not sure how you think up all these designs.....but I'm very grateful!!! Xx

Norah McPhee said...

Good afternoon Sue and the Wilsonettes,
I ilove this winter wonderland set of the various animals, the trees bare and in leaf. This is a definite needed set as i can see so many different seasons, reasons to use and all sorts of cards that this die set is going to help make. The amount of different cards you could make just with this die set alone is pheomenal and i can not wait to get this set and start experimenting. The variety of people that you could make for with this one set is terrific so in my mind it is not a want scenario, it is most definitely a need. Thank you Sue for such a wonderful die set that is just so brilliant.
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Good evening lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

What a superb set of dies, i loved the original deer family and the winter tree die sets from a couple of years ago so this new set fulfills a lot of my wishes and will help me to create fresh, new and different Christmas cards this year. The various animals, trees etc are just so adorable and will create the most magical of winter scenes....the font of the sentiment is gorgeous by the way, i adore it and think that your new batch of sentiments from this launch are your best and most exciting yet.

Love and crafty hugs

Hi Sue,

A lovely start to Day 4.This card reminds me of the real stories my dad used to tell me when I was young. This is the way I was imagining his forest: bright and calm filled with deer, rabbits, foxes and squirrels and lots of birds. So of course I love the Forest Animals dies. Added on my wish list.

Pam – Hope you’ll get the stained glass die soon.
Elaine - Glad Andrew enjoyed his surprise
PP – So sorry to read about Dillon.
Maureen- If you enjoyed the drink, who cares about the ingredients.
Melissa – Glad to see more Canadians joining the blog. Welcome!

Have a great weekend everyone,
Still a newbie to Craft / not longer the newest, or the only Canadian Wilsonette
