Festive Collection

Hello bloggers!  We have reached the final post of the 2017 Christmas die launch.  It has been eight days of four posts each day showcasing 40 new die designs.  I do hope that you have enjoyed it as much as I have!  This final post is showcasing the Poinsettia Cluster die.  Designed in what is called a lazy C design, this die set has a lovely outline detail with three poinsettias as well as the matching three poinsettias which are separate so you can add the under or on top of the outline design.  The three flowers can easily be used separately to add small floral details as well.  One last time, I will ask you to leave a comment on the post in order to be included in this drawing.  You still have time to go back and add comments to any of the posts you may have missed.  Don't forget to check back to see if your name is on the winning list!  The drawing results will be posted on the blog on the afternoon of June 28th.  Thank you so much for taking the time to pop by the blog four times each day!  All for now, Sue x

Oh Sue. What a beautiful pretty die to end on. Like Sam mentioned earlier you work so hard making sure the designs are now you wanted, that the dies look how you imagined and that you give us value for money. Then come the many many samples that you do for inspiration, and each one has been amazing, thank you. I know the nerves kick in each time but as you have bring reading, complete success again. So thank you for an amazing launch xxx Congratulations xxx

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Gorgeous post for the last one for this launch. Have loved every single card and every single die - too many to choose from so may have to lucky dip a list and see what comes out for me to buy first.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful creations from a beautiful range....

Evis M said...

Hi Sue.
This card is just stunning. The red, of the poinsettia cluster, gives the card
a 'pop' of colour. This is one die I will certainly buy.

CCM said...

Hi Sue and everyone,

What a final! How gorgeous and versatile is this delicate Poinsettia Cluster die. The card is equally elegant and beautiful. Love the background (new EF maybe?), the sentiment and the Poinsettia.
This June launch has been fantastic.Congratulations Sue! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to win a Die but as others said before, we are all winners whether we win a Die or not as we have learned so much.

I do hope that some of the new names that have appeared during this launch will continue to visit your blog and not just disappear until the next one.

In this note,
Good luck everyone and have a great day.

A special hug for you, Sue!

Still a newbie to Craft / not longer the newest, or the only Canadian Wilsonette

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, this may be a non-traditional style card but it is gorgeous and I love the Poinsettia Cluster and the way you have used it here. I look forward to seeing many more of your samples over the coming weeks. My favourites have to be the Forest Animals & the Birch Trees along with ALL of the ones containing poinsettias in one form or another and closely followed by everything else!

Yet again I would like to thank you for all the time and effort you put into designing beautiful dies and then creating lovely cards to show them off. Judging by all the comments your hard work has paid off and is very much appreciated by us all. I am sure that many stockists will soon be showing 'sold out' signs on their stock. Thank you.

Glenharon said...

Good evening Sue and the Wilsonettes,
Well we come to the very last die that is on my need list as it can do so many things and make so many plain projects pretty, oh yes i do like this poinsettia cluster but hey that was going to be a forgone conclusion considering what it had in it's make up. And so Sue this comes just under my Angel and my holly swirl must haves/needs/craves. IT can make soft corners or circles or top and bottom an oval or be a border or encapsulate a sentiment or just that finishing touch, oh yes this has so many uses and purposes that it should be on everyones need list, but i could just be bias as i love Poinsettias', lol. Thank you Sue for a walk through the days of Christmas where we can enjoy the stroll before we have no time to think of anything else bar what have i forgot or who have i forgotten to buy for days that are more a nightmare than a pleasure because my energy has ran out and left me long before we even get to the day it's self.
Girls, i wish you all good luck with the draw and who ever is lucky enough to win one of these beauties, please enjoy the pleasure and happiness that you won brings with it.
Sending hugs to all the Wilsonettes old and new, have a good night.
Love and crafty hugs

Hello Sue
I hope you realise how special you are to us all,you inspire us to attempt to emulate you.This launch has been your best yet.I don't have any craft shops near me which supply your dies so seeing your amazing creations are invaluable.

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

What a wonderful way to end a fabulous launch but with the Christmas Poinsettia. This cluster is lovely and can be used in so many ways.

I must say I have enjoyed the past eight days immensely. A new die release is an exciting time for all of us but such a large amount of work for you. This collection is just fabulous, that isn't one die that I wouldn't want. You've got all shapes and sizes and styles, there is absolutely something there for everyone. Now we can look forward to more designs from you and I'm sure there will be some wonderful new videos as well.

Congratulations Sue, you have done yourself proud.

Evening Sue. WOW What a way to finish your Christmas die launch. This is a beautiful card. The Poinsettia Cluster die is a little beauty. I have your other Cluster dies and they are used all the time. Thank You Sue for all the different dies you have launched this time. They are all beautiful and you have just been making it harder every day deciding which ones are my favourite but I think the Christmas Angel 2017, Gingerbread House, Gingerbread Man and the Three Wise Men are at the top of my wish list. Thanks once again for all your hard work and gorgeous cards over the last eight days.
Best Wishes.

Dear Sue,

You and your invisible helpers deserve much more than pats on the back. You deserve a fireworks display, chocolates, flowers, and a 21 reindeer low-altitude fly-by.

A fitting selection for the finale. Plus, the same idea can work for the other flower clusters

Hello Sue,
Well I've been waiting all week for this die to be showcased and it was worth the wait. It's definitely top of my list. I love all your cluster dies. I have the daisy cluster and am presently waiting for my star flower cluster to arrive and will have to have this one as well. I hadn't thought to use it diagonally across a card but will rectify that asap, it looks fabulous.
Many Congratulations Sue I think you have surpassed yourself with this collection, it's been a fabulous week and I have loved seeing your creations. Thank you for all your hard work and bless you for your generosity.

Donita Happy Birthday I hope you have had a wonderful day even though you were working. Loved your last comment to Sue.

Yvonne, sorry you're not feeling brilliant, hope you are soon back in the fast lane.
Crewe Trish, I often stay with my daughter in Middlewich when I'm in the UK and there is a little shop quite near has a fabulous collection of Sues dies, can't remember the name but will find it for you if you want and if it wouldn't be too far for you to come.

Wishing each and every single one of you who have commented this week good luck in the draw.

Unknown said...

Good evening lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

A superb card sample and die with which to end your impressive launch with....i am not alone in appreciating the poinsettia and this die is absolutely perfect. I love how you have used it diagonally across the card and incorporated a co ordinating EF to create a theme of sorts....such a layout could be used with your other cluster dies at any time of the year.
All good things must eventually come to an end and your festive launch is no exception:-( I have enjoyed every minute of it immensely and would like to thank you for all the hard work and dedication that has been invested by you into the production of the dies and the many card samples that have followed, it is much appreciated Sue. You have elevated so many peoples, me included, card making to new and previously out of reach levels, your dies are amazing and the card samples you create are truly awe inspiring.
I look forward to viewing more of these wonderful creations over the coming months through your YouTube videos and the Festive Friday card sample, they cannot come quick enough for me this year now that i have been suitably inspired and motivated by your launch.
I would like to wish every single person who has taken the time to comment the very best of luck in Sues generous draw.....i do hope also that we will continue to have the pleasure of your company when the launch ends because Sue really deserves to know just how much she and her work means to us all.
Donita, hope that you have had a fabulous day, enjoy your day off tomorrow and your craft crop on Saturday....I'm just a teeny bit jealous, crafting AND cake, mmmm!
Elaine, i hope Andrew has a very successful fishing trip with his mates, he deserves a relaxing break away during his holiday from the chemo sessions....i have my fingers crossed that his tackle produces the biggest Carp!
Yvonne my love, you are such a trouper, having a conversation with me when you are below par deserves a medal:-) Hope I left you feeling brighter and not suicidal!:-)
Wishing all my blog besties a lovely evening, see you all tomorrow xxx

Love and crafty hugs

Hi Sue,
a bit sad of these last glorious 8 days having come to an end but hey, we had a ball...

You have managed to keep the WOW factor up all through the blog and your last post is no exception. Love that poinsettia cluster, can be used all year round and is so versatile...

Thank you for all the work you have done with all the dies (designing and testing etc) and then the samples - you are a REAL STAR!

I already have some of the Festives 2017 but there'll be additions! Just making sure I don't win any and then I'll get ordering.............

BREXIT will have nothing on the decision-making which will take place in this house!!!

Hugs, Rose

Hi Sue,
Well as the saying goes, all good things must end! What a way to finish too - the poinsettia cluster is beautiful and definitely a must have. The card is stunning. Thank you Sue for a wonderful collection, I don't know how you keep coming up with the ideas but I'm so pleased you do!
Good luck everyone. Love and hugs to all, Alison xxxx

Hi Sue,

A Stupendous final card, I would never have thought to use the cluster in such a way, but it's so effective and I will definitely be stealing that idea.
Poinsettia's are my favourite for a Christmas card, I adore them in white and this cluster will look absolutely stunning.
So, my 'must have now' list has increased again, but oh well, a girls got to have what a girl wants! Right?
An excellent launch, thoroughly enjoyed it.
Thanks again for all that you share with us.

Hello Sue,
Thank you so very much for your Die Launch! It has been wonderful. I am really in awe of your talents! I'm extremely glad you have these talents! As for what I may purchase - this is a public blog which my husband may read!! Unlikely but possible!! Lol!
Joking aside Sue, thank you - your talent is amazing! We say thank you and it can sound quite glib sometimes but we mean it!!
I have many many favourites! I will keep my powder dry until you have made the draw! We are extremely fortunate to be part of this Draw!
I have thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience! We are very fortunate , as Wilsonettes, to follow this blog daily .
If you follow the blog daily but don't comment - please do! This is the very least that Sue deserves. As Sam said earlier please comment daily! Sam - nobody should be offended by what you said as you said it so nicely! Thank you.
Sue , your final card is gorgeous! I have the Daisy Corner Die which is quite similar too and it's so useful!
Thank you Sue, you are a star!
Love Myra, ( Friend of Maureen!!) xxxxx

Evening Sue, what an end to a truly fantastic festive launch! Your dies just get better & better and this last one is no exception. Beautiful, elegant card! As everyone has said we have really enjoyed this launch and from beautiful dies you have created some stunning cards. You must be so proud that this launch has been so well received, thank you so much. My list has just grown & grown! You really are the Queen of dies!
Like Lorraine & Stephanie I would like to say to everyone who has commented please visit Sue's blog on a daily basis because this launch has seen Sue's blog rise from number 8 to number 7 on the best blog list. Can we all help to get it back to the top 3?

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. I wouldn't necessarily rush to buy a cluster die, but I love what you have done here and it makes me look at these dies in a completely different light. Thank you. I have really enjoyed this launch again and can't wait to see if I will be lucky enough to win one of the dies in the draw.
