Majestic Tree

Hello all!  We are featuring the Majestic Tree die set during this blog post.   Shown here in this sample, you can see the Majestic tree makes a lovely focal element with it's many "lift up" leaves.  Since the leaves aren't completely cut out, they give the tree real texture and interest.  The trunk has been designed so it can be cut separately in a different colour and added to the top of the tree.  The outer cutting edge has been made separate so if you want to back the top of the tree with a different shade to show through where the leaves lift upwards, it can easily be done.  Just leave your comment and you might win this die set, it is so easy to do.  There are directions on the right hand side of the blog if you are unsure how to do it. The final post for today will be up at 3pm.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, a gorgeous card mixing so many of your new releases and the Majestic Tree is so clever. Love the way some of the leaves lift for dimension and having a separate cutting die creates even more possibilities. Guess what has got to go on my list!

Good afternoon lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

This is surely a die that has to be seen in action to appreciate its beauty and majesty....i wasn’t immediately taken by this die but as always your lovely card sample has changed my mind, the dimension and colours are stunning. This is such a cute card, the sun and clouds are a lovely addition as is the basket of fruit, it really inspires. Thankyou for managing to spark my imagination yet again:-)

Lovely card Sue, showcases the Tree perfectly. Very useful and can be done in autumnal colours too. The basket of fruit is so cute, could put apples on the tree too.

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue and everyone

Gorgeous fun card. I like others have said wasn’t too sure this tree set was for me, as I have the family tree one. However, seeing this sample and reading your description changes my mind. I love the lift up leaves idea. It really is majestic and on this card it is framed so elegantly with the oval and the surrounding other cute elements. Lovely!

Stephanie K, I attempted to answer your question about the Catherine Wheel on the last post. Might be more to it, but I think that was the jist of it. X

Love Helen xxx

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. Back to the 'real world' no more peace no more tranquillity or watching the magnificent colours of the pheasants as the sun rises over the fields and into their golden feathers. No more bleating from the sheep hoping that spring will bring them lambs, no more excited 'moo's' from the barn as their fresh bedding and food is delivered by their lovely farmer with the worst of jokes ever ! It was so lovely to get away from the brainless morons who find the money for the biggest and loudest of fireworks rather than put food in the cupboard for their children ! Oh well, we'll be doing the journey again to have a peaceful New Years Eve away from the idiots again.
So from tree's lining the lanes to a Sue Wilson tree and it's a beauty Sue, to be able to fold back each leaf is wonderful and so meticulously thought out, this will go so well with your other dies already show cases and what is yet to come. You're designing of dies Sue is just out of this world, how do we thank you for all you've done and continue to do to make what we love doing continuously happier if that makes any sence ?

Look forward to the last of the day and what is still to come xxx

To My Wonderful Dear Friend Sue,
This Card Is Truly Magical, When I First Looked At This Die I Didn’t Think I’d
Possibly Use It But Then You Go And Prove Me “Totally Incorrect” As This Card Is Magnificent
“The Majestic Tree” 🌳🌳
I Love How The Tree Has Leaves That Can Stand Proud, I Love How You’ve Used The
Bushel Bucket/Plus Fruit, I Love The Background With The Clouds/Stitched Sunshine ☀️
Also The Fabulous Embossing Folder. (Sorry I Don’t Know The Name)
I Believe I’m In Agreement With The Wonderful Princess Pixie, You’ve Brought Out Yet Another Awesome
Cutting Die That I Need To Purchase.................
Take Care My Wonderful Dear Friend
Sue, Lots Of Love Also Huge Hugs 🤗
Love From Sam xxx

Hello Sue,
It’s confession time! When I saw this Die originally I thought that it was just a tree and I didn’t need or want another tree! How wrong was I ?

It’s a beautiful tree and beautifully versatile! So many seasons . I love the card too. Thank you!

Hi Sue,

Absolutely delightful!!
As we know there are many tree dies out there, but only yours is unique and tremendously creative, with it's textural quality leaves. This ability transforms it into a very lush, desirable set indeed.
As the days go past my list continues to change, I'll have to review before making the final decision :-), if only I could have them all!!

Good Afternoon Sue. Absolutely gorgeous tree. It is breaking my heart about the trees that are being chopped down in the southern part of England just to make way for yet " more progress " or so they say. These trees are living things and should be left to live their natural life. So yes I love this tree and the card. Someone is going to be very lucky. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds
