All good things must come to and end, but it's not really as we have a whole lot of new samples to look forward to over the next few months each showing more of this absolutely gorgeous new collection. My list sparks up again today starting with this new grass - woohoo. A really beautiful sample made with love from these very useful Finishing Touch grass. I do love a FT.
Sending love, hugs, and a day of happiness to you Sue xxx

Morning Sue, well you have certainly saved some more loveliness for the last day of the launch. Love this die, and it is now on my list as a must have, because it is extremely versatile. Your card is very striking, and the die works so well with your flowers. Have a great day everyone, and good luck for the draw. Bx

Personally just to add to my own collection i love the hexagons and the weaving dies esp
but one can never have enough lol and the new dies are all so pretty, versatile and super in their own ways, so spoilt for choices really?
Hats off to you Sue for giving us the chances to win them, very much appreciated. x
Thank you x

Nanny Joo Joo from sunny Scunny said...

Good morning Sue,

A lovely and very different leaf style to previous ones.

To choose a favourite of this September launch is almost impossible! I have already purchased many of them and they have been arriving in the last few postal days. I'm very much looking forward to seeing more of your amazing examples using them.

I am also excited to see you on our tv screens this weekend! What delightful demonstrations do you have in store for us this time??

Crafty hugs and warm wishes,
Nanny JooJoo from sunny Scunny xx

Karen Drew said...

Finishing touches are a great way to finish a die launch. They complement the other dies beautifully.
There have been so many favourites. The snow globe top of my list. The alphabet grid set, anything with the cute animals, anything to make men's cards easier are my next favourites So much choice!!!
Loving the look of these windswept grasses too.

Lovely card Sue, very useful new dies.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, this is one of those leaf dies that will come in extremely handy indeed, sometimes you only need a narrow leaf behind your elements and this fits it perfectly, yes Sue I will be sniping away at mine when I get it.

Pam I reiterate all you have said above. hope the finger is feeling better.

Off to craft group this morning and we are doing our own thing, might take some jewellery to do.

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

Hello Sue and all

Very versatile, handy grass, the length is good for the draping greenery around your gorgeous flowers, and this new one too ?
I am having the same trouble as most Wilsonettes, cutting the list down to a manageable level and am really eager to see your lovely samples on the blog over the next few weeks.
Looking forward to what the rest of the day brings

Betty McAlister said...

Good morning Sue. A beautiful card to open the final day of your new launch. Love the colours you've chosen for this clean and simple
Beauty. The hexagon frame sits so well centrally and your gorgeous flowers and grasses dies finish the card perfectly.
Ella is still one of my favourites, the Geminis, the Ecliptic Edger, the Alphabet Grid and I think I'd find good use of the tool box and BBQ dies.
So hard to have just one favourite!!!
Looking forward to your next post for another finishing touch. Xx

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, This die set is a great addition to your Finishing Touches range, a beautiful card too. I can see this die set being used for 'scene' cards and also for an 'underwater' scene etc etc.
I have thoroughly enjoyed your new season of dies, favourites are too many to mention, but the Gemini's, the beautiful edgers from yesterday, and my 'most wanted' is the intermediate weaving die set, I can't wait to see all your fabulous samples for all these stunning die sets you have created this month - I Want Them All !!!!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Finishing Touches, what's not to like?

Hi Sue

The grasses do look as though they are blowing in the wind, the die would produce a great finishing touch to so many designs.

Scottydog said...

What a start to the final day! I love the background to this card & will be interested to hear how this was done. A most useful addition to the finishing touches, trying to be practical I told myself I didn't need anymore finishing touches, but I hadn't thought of grasses, I don't have anything like these, so yes they are are going on the list. Thank you so much Sue for all your hard work & inspiration.

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Loyal Followers,

Ah, windswept grasses. Destined for my foliage file. They seem a little spikey with these pointy flowers, but they do have a lovely grace. And I bet in mixed-foliage sprays offsetting flowers, perhaps all done in white, their distinctive shape will contrast perfectly with tiny-leaf foliages.

If I had to pick ONLY ONE set to get from this release, it would have to be the first hexagons. Although I love the stitched animals and the cheeky monkeys, the stitched clouds and stars as well as the clouds you can snip from the fairy and hot air balloon snow globes, plus Victoria, Scarlet and Ella, and Sagitta and Columba, they merely add even-more-lovely variations of what I've already got. So I'll start with the hexagons. And then indulge in adding more of what I've already got enough of.

For those of us in North America, the end of the launch means our suppliers will soon offer them. Talk about pent-up demand!

Also, it will be nice when the blog gets back to "normal" and we can get to know some of the new people.

Saba, I was going on no hours sleep when I posted Tuesday, and only got three hours after that. By sunk, I just meant that so many dies were insisting on me owning them, especially the fabulous Columba, that I might as well give up on ever retiring. I didn't mean to be insensitive when you were at anchor in big weather. We're getting big waves from the approach of Jose. My Tuesday assignment was Jose-related. I got soaked in the rain and used up my iPhone battery trying to capture a tremendous wave and people watching it. That's hard. Jose isn't even near, and he's only a tropical storm, but people all trooped to one town's coast to see big waves and watch surfers ride them. It was like a sunny day at the beach, judging by how full the parking lot was, only it was raining and almost dark. Everybody and their dog strolled along the sea wall to look at the waves and sometimes get splashed.

Speaking of Tuesday,

Poppyfield Card Crafts, you noticed rosebuds on the Columba card, which I had completely missed. Where the heck were rosebuds? So I took another look, And ...

... Theresa Pace, you said something about frondy bits near the flower. Both of you together solved the mystery for me, which was that the cluster was snuggled up against Columba, and it only has one flower instead of the three on the other clusters. And for The Columba sample, Sue used a rosebud instead of the flower that comes with the cluster. Yes, those frondy bits are quite nice. I bet we see them today.

Happy Last Day of the Launch, you Dearie Pies. We shared something tremendous, didn't we? Sue, look what you have done. Not just dies that are ahead of their time, and an award-winning blog, and a rich archive of samples and tutorials, but also us.


Izzy said...

Hello Sue,

All the Finishing Touches dies are must-haves whether flowers or leaves and these are very elegant and that little bit different to what's already in the arsenal so onto they wish list they go!

Saba said...

Good Morning Sue,
Well the first of the finishing touches didn't disappoint, I love these windswept grasses, they might be classed as a finishing touch but to me they make a statement. Love the card and again those hexagon dies are really proving to be an essential.

Donita don't worry, I didn't think you were being insensitive, it actually made me chuckle. Our gale force winds never materialised so we had a quiet night. Even so they would have paled I to insignificance compared to the awful storms you are having over there. My heart goes out to all those poor people who have lost everything. Sorry you got drenched yesterday.
Pam thank you for your concern, rest assured we have a sturdy boat and a good anchor.

Love and hugs for all

Hi Sue and everyone

I always really love your finishing touches dies and these windswept grasses are no exception. Even better you have given us left and right facing ones once again, something so practical and essential for balance but something that many other designers fail to do. That's just one of the many reasons we all love your dies.

As to choosing a favourite, like most on here I have many favourites, but the very first one from your launch the Lavish accented hexagons is really memorable and is so pretty and different, I also loved all the little tools in the tool sets, see, I'm starting to list them all!

Lovely card today as well, really pretty.

Hi Sue, a lovely card and the colours suit today's autumnal feel. I love the Windswept Grasses (but then, I love all of your Finishing Touches) and I can easily see them being an addition to my family. I have too many favourites but if you twisted my arm I would have to say the Petite Petal Striplet, all of the animals, all of the Hexagons and I know I will want all of the Finishing Touches. I will have to look for a hat big enough to put all the names in lol.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW !!! What a wonderful card to start the last day of your new die launch. The windswept grasses dies look fabulous !!! I want to thank you so much for giving us a left and a right hand die for these leaves. In doing so you give us so much greater versatility, and personally I think that it is designing like this that puts you, as a designer, into a league of your own that no one else even comes to !!! You think of all the important stuff which enables the crafter to get so much more from their die set. I did not think I wanted / needed any more in the way of leaf sets but oh my word, was I wrong !!! The windswept grasses are unlike any dies I already own. They look incredibly classy and elegant as far as leaves go. I have added these to my "must have" wish list. I love everything you have shown us in this new launch, and I think it your most versatile launch ever. You have catered for everyone's taste, for every occasion, from babies to children, teenagers, women and even those difficult men !!! Choosing a personal favourite, now that is much more difficult. Top of my list is all of the Hexagons, also the new weaving die, then all of the necessities collection for the babies, children and men, the list is just endless with your new launch. Thank you for sharing another wonderful card and fabulous windswept grasses dies !!! Sending lots of love to you Sue from Tres x x x

And again, delicate finishing touches die set, it really has so much potential. Very clever to make them asymmetrical and give us two, I love symmetry. It's going to be a great last day! Thank you, Sue.

Have a great day everyone,

I think that the Finishing Touches are my favourite type of dies, perhaps they are so useful also with little creations as tags and labels, or even mixed with any other design and dies... and LOVE these windswept grasses leaves!! Fabulous linear style!!
So useful mixed with other leaves and flowers!!! Great release!

Maria Alder said...

Hi Sue and everyone.
Love your colourful happy card and the leaves do make it so
much more with the gorgeous flowers. Another die that would
be very useful for many cards. TFS Sue and thank you for all
the great stamps and dies you making.

Hugs to all who need some.

I love the hexagon die sets, the tags, and the Gemini dies best. I know that's rather broad but I have problems deciding on favorites. These dies are most versatile so I need to start there and then add more specific sets like the adorable tool box and oh, the peg board.... want that one. Sue, you make decisions hard.
Can't wait to have some of these goodies available here.
Love to all. Keep Peurto Rico in your prayers,

Good afternoon lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

What a gorgeous card sample, the colours are so rich and vibrant....cant wait to see how you achieved that beautiful background, the colour and design is so cheery, it has really brightened up what has turned into a dismal day in Stirling:-)
The finishing touches as a range are endlessly useful and these cute grasses are no exception....its always the same, you tell yourself that you really don't need anymore in your collection however i am just so easily persuaded when you create a die that is so unlike its predecessors. Sad that the launch is coming to an end, however it will be great to see if we have any new commenters and to hear everyone's news again.
Picking a favourite from the launch is like asking me which of my fur babies i love the most:-) if i had my way i would do an Yvonne and buy the entire release but since i am so high maintainance in other ways i will have to buy them gradually. I think i would prioritise the hexagon dies, peg board, all the Gemini dies, edgers and cute stitched animals and cloud, however, i certainly wont stop there.....:-)
I'm off to catch up on all the comments before my next post

Love and crafty hugs
