Heartfelt Thanks

Hi bloggers!  Silver, dusty rose and white are the colours for this one.  I started by embossing a piece of dusty rose card from my stash with the Butterfly Dreams embossing folder.  I used Pearl Lustre gilding polish over the top to highlight the butterflies.  I cut the Atlantic Ocean Border twice out of coconut white card and backed it with silver mirror card.  I accented them with pearls and added mounting foam to raise them for dimension and attached them to the edges of the card. I cut the Megan die twice out of white card.  I backed it with dusty rose card on one and cut the centre out.    I cut the inside die and backed it with vellum and reseated it in the same opening.  I cut the second Megan die in half , adding the centre die to it and adding each half to show on the top and bottom of the focal element.   I stamped my sentiment and seated it in the centre of the card, adding a small flower as an accent.  White, silver and dusty rose mats and layers were added to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Very lovely card Sue.
You must be so happy that your new collection was so well relieved but I think the lucky winners from the draw will be even more ecstatic. So many of our regulars drawn and their lovely posts show their joy and happiness. Each and every one so well deserved.
Laine many congratulations on your double win, so good that you have these lovely dies, your Mum must be breathing sighs of relief lol. Seriously honey, just goes to show good things happen to good people and we are all pleased fir you and all other winners.
Myra, so hapoy for you.
Carmen, you must be thrilled too, first the Kid surprises you with his return to Work, then you are a winner too.
Rosemary now you can think of all the lovely cards you can make with your new die whilst having you scan, much better than counting backwards.
June, lovely surprise to come home to after craft club,enjoy, my friend.
Bejay, couldn't have chosen a better die for you.
Lynda, the face will heal fine, hope the back eases soon, don't let it spoil your big birthday celebrations.
Maureen, you must be so hapoy to get rid of the equipment, I know I was.
Hugs to all, take care today it's very wet windy and do cold, is it still June, it feels like winter. Thinking of our poorly and missing friends.

Morning Sue. A drab, grey, wet miserable start to the day but as usually you bring the sunshine into our lives by giving us another gorgeous sample. I reach for the Butterfly Dreams folders whenever my card calls for a delicate background as butterflies symbolise many things and have shown up at many occasions when least expected. Unfortunately I don't have this borders and to be honest I've never been one for art deco but the more I see these dies on your samples and the more I see our fb buddies use them on their beautiful work, the more I'm liking them (dare I sneak them into the list somewhere, hmmm deception isn't my thing) ! But I'm glad I have the Megan die as she's sooo pretty, and many a card has been admired when I've used her.
We know how 'jittery' you get when you launch your new collections, and nothing we say will stop that, but after reading over 400+ messages per day you must be more than thrilled about how this one was received, the best and most useful thing about this year's festive dies is value for money not only their beauty, but to think a lot of them are all year rounders is amazing, you must be the only designer that has done that, all other festive dies on the market are one season use but you give us more (wonder how long it will take for other companies to 'follow your lead') and how annoying is that for us to see, do they not have their own ideas without taking other's ? Grrr and they launch them before your collections are shown to the world so it looks like they are the first to ever think like this - HA but we know different lol.
So now I'm excited to see all the new samples and get a new board started on pinterest ☺
I will love n leave you with my usual hugs for a lovely day xx

CraftySuetoo said...

Good morning Sue. Lovely card, you have a very delicate touch with the gilding polish. It's not a surprise that your Christmas collection has been so popular, so many of the dies can be used year round.
Congratulations to all the winners but it was wonderful to see so many "regulars" on the list. Laine wow what a day you had!
Pam, hope you were ok at the docs. Hugs to all. Sue xxx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, a really lovely card today Sue, I wish I could get the gilding polish right when I do embossing folders, mine always seems to go everywhere I am too heavy handed, perhaps you could show me what I am doing wrong when I come to Ally Pally in September, yes I have booked my ticket and my wonderful d-I-l is taking me in the car with my buggy.

Oh Sue I sent off my email to you and then forgot to put the winning die in the subject field so sent another email straight afterwards, sorry, silly me.

I was overjoyed to be picked out as a winner of one of the festive collection dies, it is such an honour believe me Sue you don't realise what this means to us Wilsonettes. Congratulations to every winner especially our lovely regulars and all new bloggers, I do hope you stay with Sue and comment on her blog everyday, you will get to realise how much work she puts into the blog and also how much you will benefit from it too. Yes Beverly it was such a lovely surprise.

Pam I reiterate all you have said. How did you get on at the Drs.

Special hugs to everyone that needs them.Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

love all the details on this one, especially that cute little flower and the vellum behind the inner Megan cut - so effective...

Great to read all the happy comments from our lucky winners and even better that our poorly members are now recovering.

snowy said...

Beautiful card, love that embossing folder. I bet you slept a little easier after such a wonderful reception to your festive die launch. We all know how gorgeous your dies are, but there is also something else that sets it aside from other designers, that is the price. Your dies are such good value for money, with other dies companies wanting extreme amounts. We all know craft has gone up in price like everything else but some companies have got greedy(in my opinion) Sue, you give us great dies, great prices, great versatility, and the inspiration to be better crafters and for that I will always be truly grateful. Wow its the longest post I have ever written so I'm off to have breakfast and then hubby and I are going craft shopping Yaye .Congrats to all who won. Hugs xxx Snowy Owl 36

Morning Sue a lovely card made from the beautiful Megan die, one (of many) I haven't got but do NEED!

You made some crafters very happy yesterday Sue, but I hope Lorraine went & bought that lottery ticket yesterday as she was on a roll.
I reiterate what Snowy Owl said, your dies are such good value, especially as they are so versatile and can be mixed & matched & you show us so many different uses for each & every one. Pleased to hear you made LOTS of Christmas samples, looking forward to seeing them all soon!

Hi Sue, I really like this card and love the dusky rose. The borders are showing on my laptop as if they were backed with gold which detracts somewhat from the overall effect but I am sure that if I could see silver it would look beautiful.

Congratulations to all the very lucky winners in yesterday's draw especially Myra, June, Bejay, Rosemary & Carmen. Laine - Wow! You should invite Uncle B up more often, it would seem that he is your lucky charm :-) I hope everyone enjoys playing with their prizes and make some beautiful cards. Sue, you have made so many people very, very happy and I hope you you are pleased with the success of your launch - don't ever doubt yourself because your creativity helps us all to be better crafters.

Look at all the happiness you spread! So glad to see so many familiar names, and what a lucky, lucky, deserving ducky Laine is!

Can't even feel disappointed because I already ordered what I wanted.

On today's card, thanks for the idea of mirror behind the Art Deco. Lots of glam for a very small amount of mirror card.

Rosemary, congratulations on your win, your scan date and the relaxer they'll give you. You'll do fine and then it'll be over.

Thanks for the hug. And hugs all around, whether you need one or not.

Sorry so late in congratulations. (Broadband playing up and phone dead - trees touching lines. Tamworth (?) getting speeds of 26+ and us only 2.3 at last check, so frustrating.) So - nice to see many of our regulars both near and far, as Pam has so
nicely mentioned; therefore will just echo. Have to mention Laine separately of course as she seems to be the real winner this time!!
It was a great release, Sue, one that I ordered has been refunded as supplier said it was damaged. Have to think again now!

Hello Sue,
Such a pretty card done in dusky rose. Nice to see the Megan die again, love the added touch of vellum behind the centre. I never think to cut my dies in half and use them behind the main die but it is really effective and I must try to remember to do it Thank you Sue.

Laine! Didn't you have a fantastic day yesterday. I'm sooo happy for you.
Karen hope your hubby will soon be fit and well again.
Elaine, glad you had a happy day yesterday, if anyone deserves one it's you.

Hi Sue,

Beautiful card, beautiful colours, beautiful embossed background and details. The first word that comes to my mind to describe the Megan die is Elegance. Thanks again Sue for another daily dose of inspiration.

Thank you all for your congratulations on my win. It was a great day for me and the rest of the winners, not only that we won one of Sue’s amazing creations but also, because each and every of you were happy for us. Sue made this possible, and we are coming back every day to post our comments, to show our appreciation for her amazing talent and generosity.
Sue, hope you are proud of your New Festive Collection and of this amazing blog as well. I know that we are so proud of you.

Karen M - All the best for your hubby. Wishing him a speedy recovery
Elaine – You made my day! I am happy for all your happiness. I don’t know when was last time to hear that you were so happy. A big hug for you and yours.
Rosemary – We’ll be there with you and for you on Saturday. Everything will be OK.
Maureen – Happy to see that you remembered who is Myra :)
P.Laine - Hey Princess, you got your well deserved Crown and crowd! Congratulations!

Dear friends, we celebrated today all June’s b-day, including Kid’s b-day who turned 27 this month. Our “family” is complete and the life is back to normal. Now is time to make plans for our coming long weekend. On Saturday, July 1st is Canada day. Most people will get the following Monday off, including my boys and I. We might have a wet weekend but I care less. I have three days to relax and to spend time with my family. It's all that matters.

Have a great day everyone!

A really beautiful card Sue as they all are. I keep adding to my wish list and it's getting so long I may have to win a lottery and buy them all!! Would't that be a surprise eh?

Very pretty card. The new die is beautiful and it reminds me of the lovely border die which I still need to get.
Have a great weekend all,
