Sycamore Branch

Hello there my crafty friends!  Welcome to the final day of the 2017 Autumn die release blog launch!  We have four posts for you today starting with the sycamore branch die set.  I love this one as you have probably been able to tell since it has popped up numerous times on the samples shown previously.  I love that you can use it as a branch, or as a floral accent with your handmade flowers or just nip the leaves off and use them as I have done in the sample shown here.  Don't they look great in the bushel basket too!  If you would like a chance to win this set, you just need to leave a comment on this post.  The next set will be shown at 12 noon today.  I hope to see you then!  All for now, Sue x

Lovely card and dies Sue. Loved the sycamore branches from first time I saw them ,beautiful.
Sadly heading towards the end of the launch, it has been wonderful,a real blast. I think you have shocked a few, thrilled many and certainly made think outside of the box again.
Laughing about the legs and shoes saga, I'm a size 5, can't wear heels and definitely don't have the legs fir those type of shoes, hey ho, will never be a princess.
Elaine, how are you, Andrew and Mary doing. Thinking of you all.
Still not back to normal, my meeting is tomorrow, just wish it was over, don't think the stress is helping. Union will be present so that helps.
Take care everyone, another cold morning, think winter is here to stay.
Hug basket is refilled, plenty for all. Donita think you need a few, you seem to be having a hard time at the moment. Wishing all poorly and missing friends better times.

Dragonsnap2 said...

Wow such a useful die and beautiful card. I can see me using this die a lot so definitely on the ever increasing list. At least Christmas is coming so the list might get shorter.
Hope all goes well with the meeting tomorrow Pam.
Hope everyone has the best day possible.
Crafty hugs,

Morning Sue.
Thank you, a beautiful die set and card.
Take care and have fun.
Lisa is doing a brilliant job too Thank you.

Steph Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. I don't have much to say other than perfect. Both your autumnal season samples and dies are phenomenal I just love the past few days collections and are my true favourites of the whole launch as will be what follows. You're an amazing designer Sue, you really are and hope you can see that too.
Can you believe the true brainless idiots were still sending off big bangs last night ?!!! Oh to get away from this place. It's so nice to wake to such a beautifully designed sample.
Sending many hugs and much love from a very frosty cold Bolton.

Lovely autumnal and homey. As always another wonderful die as has been the whole launch. Especially love in this launch how so many of the dies can be used in a huge number of ways. I echo the above at how brilliant you are. Have a super day.

BridgetCG said...

Morning Sue, another go to and very useful die. The card you have made really shows off the die beautifully and with the leaves in the aperture and the bushel basket, it looks a bit like my garden at the moment. Your designs with this release are fabulous, and it is hard to decide in which order they will be purchased, so many are on my "need it" list. Have a great day everyone. Bx

Muriel said...

Hello Sue and all
so sad it is the last day already but what a release it has been! Definitely a "something for everyone" release. You have really made us stop and think Sue, and todays card is just fabulous, although it is spring here, nearly summer, it is cool and raining today and this card hit the spot. We all have some prioritising to do, hopefully Christmas will help to reduce the lists a bit. Can't wait to see the last 3 sets
Good luck Pam tomorrow,
Muriel x

Nanny Joo Joo from sunny Scunny said...

Good morning Sue,

What a beautiful way to start my big day! Yes, dare I say it, I have a big birthday today. Your card depicts the thing that most of us love about the autumn (or fall as you call it) - the wonderful colours of the changing leaves.

I will be catching up with the rest of your days posts later in the evening. Looking forward to it.

Love, Nanny JooJoo from sunny Scunny xx

Hi Sue
This is a fabulous die set. I love sycamore leaves. They bring back happy childhood memories of kicking through them! Lovely card too. Thanks for sharing.
Have a great day everyone.

Barbara (C) said...

What a lovely card. The leaves are beautiful and by cutting or colouring in so many colours means you have endless different looks to your cards and projects. I think white on white would look stunning. This is definitely one die I would like to add to my collection. BarbaraC

cr@fty said...

Unknown said...

Dear Sue and Crew,

What a wonderful card, and I wish I had both of these sets. I just love the handle on that basket, the colors of the leaves and the flair of the lettering.

Rosemarie, so sweet what your grandson said. And thanks for informing us that the video was up. I can find out what colors Sue used to make the leaves so realistic,

Pam, thank you for looking out for me. It turns out that my iPad was on silent without indicating that it was. Had to restart it to get the sound back. But I'll still take a couple of those hugs, please. And here are some for you, so you won't stress about your meeting, knowing that the union guy will be there.

Now what's this, Nanny Joo Joo? A big birthday? How big can it be? Big enough for you to get as many dies from the November release as you want? I hope you are surrounded by love and there's plenty of cake for your birthday. And if the fire department has to come because all those candles set off the fire alarm, I hope you enjoy seeing all the handsome firefighters. Happy Birthday!

Huggles to you, too, Crewe Trish, and condolences to Rosemary and Lainey about the Strictly goings on.

nattyboots said...

Hi Sue
I don't know how you keep coming up with all these wonderful ideas ,todays card is lovely ,loving the leaves in the bucket and how you have coloured them makes them look so real.

Pam Perhaps you could phone your consultants secretary to explain the flare up they could perhaps put you further up the list ,the sooner you get your operation the better . Hope all goes well for you tomorrow .
Andrew had another treatment yesterday , and Mary called in to show off her wig WOW !she chose a gray and short one very close to her own style and colour , it really suits her and does not look like a wig at all ,it has given her a real boost and it was so nice to see her smile again .
Helen had a bit of a meltdown at the weekend as it is coming up to her Dads Memorial ,then her brother and Mums , and of course the worry for Andrew , however she has bounced back and gone to work today . we will just have to help her all we can .

Will echo Pams comments and take a couple of hugs .

Sending big huggles to all my besties too

Hi Sue
What a great die to start the day and a beautiful card too. I think this one will definately be on my list as I love tucking leaves behind flowers and this is a great one to add to the collection. Love the autumnal effect you have created with the different coloured leaves, looks just like the ground at the moment here doesn't it. Thank you for sharing.
Love Diane G xxx

Good Morning Sue. Those leaves look absolutely awesome. How on earth did you manage to make them look so real. Would really love to know. I can't believe that we have come to the end of the launch. You really deserve a medal Sue. Someone is going to be very lucky. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Another MUST for my list! Love autumnal leaves &.you can incorporate them into so many cards as you have shown us this past week. Autumn is my favourite time of year & like Heather R I love to walk through them & lhear the crunching noise. (A child at heart!).
A beautiful card to start the last day of the launch & tonight I will sit down & prepare my list in order of priority. I will have to be good between now & Christmas then I might get a few from Santa! Ha ha! Thank you Sue!

Croquet Queen x said...

Hi Sue,

I can't wait to see the video on how you achieved those leaves, they truly are magnificent!!!
I have a fabulous cute Stamping Bella Halloween stamp, that would look totally awesome with these leaves done exactly the same way as you've shown, I don't want to wait a year tho, so I'll start early!! LOL

cheryl brown said...

Hi Sue,

Another WOW! from you. The sycamore leaves are a fantastic addition to your Finishing Touches Collection. I think you will have a sell out on these dies, everyone including me will NEED this set in their own collections.

A beautiful card too to complete a wonderful post for today.

Pam, dear heart, I wish all the best for you in your meeting tomorrow. Having your Union rep attending will be a big boost for you, but just remember 'Do not let them try to take your power away from you' You hold all the aces not them.

Love 7 hugs

Ruth Kidd said...

Morning Sue,

Good Morning Sue . Such a stunning card this morning , the sycamore branch looks so real with the way you have coloured with them. The added touch with the basket works so well. This card makes you feel like you can smell the leaves and you want to touch and see if they crunch.

Hi Sue, once again you have not disappointed us with these beautiful leaves which are just the right size. WakeyL

Morning Sue, lovely card and these branches will be so useful, getting tucked behind flowers.

LOVE the DELICATE leaves to add AWESOME to the branches, LOVE how you were so clever to join the branches together for the extra long branch across the top too!
SO VERSATILE for all-year-creativity :)

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, now I see where the lovely leaves earlier came from (and I foolishly confused with the Cascading Leaves) and I know that they are another must have. The Sycamore Branch looks beautiful in the autumnal colours but will be equally good in its summer clothes. Love the card and the loose leaves look great in the Bushel Basket and as a shaker, at least they will stay dry and crisp in there and not wet and soggy as are the ones in my garden.

Pam - I will be thinking of you tomorrow and as someone famous once said "don't let the b******s get you down"!
Nanny JooJoo - A very Happy big Birthday to you :D
Myra - Happy Birthday to you too, hope both you ladies have a lovely day.
Elaine - pleased that Mary, Andrew and Helen seem to be coping well, how is John doing on his medication?

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue and everyone

Has to be another favourite, they are gorgeous and so life like. Love you have done left and right facing too, and added some extras.

I love your card, so crisp and fresh and as others have said, takes me right back to walking to infant school kicking through the leaves. Much to my mothers annoyance, as dog owners were not as responsibe as they are now! Still feel the urge to kick through them all these years later sometimes. I think you have got the colours just right for this autumnal show. However, they are versatile enough to be used in summer too. Just lovely. The filled bushel basket is a great touch.

Pam, sorry to hear you’re still suffering. Hope tomorrow goes well for you. Keep strong. We’re all routing for you. X

Love Helen xxx

I love these leaves. Reminds me of Fall in New England. This would be a great die to add to my growing collection - (not just to look at, but to use).

This is another of my favorite from this release!!! I have seen these sycamore branches in a lot of your cards and I waited for it! :D LOVE, love, love this set so much!! It's just perfect for any card, at any season!! Very useful and versatile!

Judi said...

I have been waiting for this set for a couple of days now, ever since I saw the you tube video for this shaker card. Great die and beautiful card.

CCM said...

Hi Sue,
What a pretty card! Beside the colors I don’t like autumn to be honest, it brings cold and cloudy days, rain … I didn’t make a fall card ever (when to do it since I stared making cards last December?), but you never know. With this inspiration and beautiful and versatile die set, I might end up making a few or at least give it a try. But … the leaves don’t have to be brown or orange, some nice green leaves will be a great addition as floral accent. That why I love the Sycamore branch die set.

Is it already the last day of the blog launch!? This makes me sad.On the bright side we’ll get to see four samples and new die sets today. What a party!

Have a great week everyone,
Still a newbie to Craft / not longer the newest, or the only across the pond Wilsonette

Pawprintx4 said...

This is a great die for the collection because anything that serves as double duty greenery for flowers is a go for me. I am limited there and nice to have a change plus the pretty leaves for Autumn cards. Carmen, I know what you mean and I only live in South Carolina (where everyone loves Autumn). Having summer over is sad to me plus we tend to the gray/rainy chilly days...depressing).
Helen, thank you for the detailed definition for Catherine's Wheels. Very interesting in a gruesome way.
We have the very autumn day I described here today and I need to run to the grocery store,
Good luck, Pam and good day to all,
Stephanie K

A very autumnal card Sue. Love the leaves & they will look equally good in their summer foliage

Oh! I wish for two things! 1 to be retired, so I can have enough time to make more beautiful cards. 2 to own all your dies and have half your talent Sue. Oh wait is that 3? Thanks.๐Ÿ˜‰

Love this die - a must have and I've already got it from a pre-order - love the post and it will be a well used and versatile die.

Cathie said...

Beautiful card and die.

Viki Banaszak said...

This is so lovely! I love the usefulness of these leafy goodies for year round design possibilities.

Jomada-Dawn said...

Aha! This is where those lovely leaves came from, for your earlier card - and this is another lovely card. But where's the sycamore key?! Maybe something for another die set?

stitchingranny said...

Ina e most if not all your leaves and flowers, and yes, I did notice them pop up before. The leaves and flowers are must haves for me .

Hugs Helen xxx

Barbara said...

Beautiful card Sue, love the leaves!

Nanny Jo said...

What a pretty autumnal card, Sue...the colours are so rich! A tree branch is an unusual finishing touch, but so fitting on many 'landscape' or 'gardening' style cards. Nanny Jo N Ireland

Theresa said...

i really love these. pretty but so versatile, hugs xx

PaulineC said...

Love this one too. Will look fantastic on so many projects and cards.

Tooth Fairy Jo said...

Hello Sue,
Well, going by the number of comments so far, this one is definitely a winner. I like the fact the leaves are tiny and can be used as an embellishment for floral accents without overshadowing the flowers. Of course they look wonderful standing alone as you have shown us on this lovely card. They are definitely on my wish list.

Catching up again, will comment more on the last post.
Love and hugs

Last night I watched the video for this card and fell in love with the Sycamore branch, because the leaves remind me of maple leaves! This is a beautiful fall card that anyone would love to own. Thank you for sharing your talent and your designs with us.
