Gemini Cluster Card


Hi bloggers!  This is one of my favourite types of cards to create, girlie and floral! LOL  This video shows off the nasturtium cluster and the Columba Gemini die set and just how beautifully they work together!

Just to let you know, the Jan 2018 Die Release Blog Launch kicks off tomorrow morning here at 6am!  I have so much to share with you, I can't wait!  Hope to see you here!























 The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  9 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue, a really girlie and lovely card, the flower clusters alongside the gemini die cut is a great design. Will have to catch the video later. Have a good day everyone. Bx

Morning Sue. This sample is totally stunning it's so pretty and the cluster of nasturtions either side of the Gemini are amazing Sue. It's gorgeous from start to finish.
My list of 'Needs' is made already and like everyone else I'm really excited to see your samples. Your dies are known around the world and loved by all so you must be as excited as we are although we appreciate you get a tad nervous but honestly there is no need just enjoy the launch as much as we will.
Have a great day wherever you are. Lots of supporting hugs heading your way xxx

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

Such a delicate and feminine card, love that soft shade of pink...the Nasturtium Cluster should already be winging it's way to me as I ordered it on Saturday along with the Prism Striplet and the Linear Elegance Edger - I knew it would be fatal to tune into Julia's shows but did it anyway!

Tomorrow morning can't come soon enough - off to watch the video...

Hi Sue,
I think this is the first time that I can comment in the same day as your posting and a video too! Very very unfortunately I can't get my sound to work. How frustrating is that.
I will come back to it later and hope some magic has fixed the sound.
Love to all.

Hi Sue, a gorgeous card. So pretty, intricate and delicate your Nasturtium and the Gemini Columba dies. I love it. Thanks for your video.

P Austen said...

Hi Sue, oh yes! just love your girlie cards1 and made in pink too. I darent have a sneaky peak at your new dies as I haven't managed to get all of the dies I wanted from your last launch yet. Now I'm in a quandary as I just know that there will be lots more fabulous dies amongst your latest launch. Will just have to get plenty of paracetamol to help with my 'headaches over the next few days. lol
Really looking forward to tomorrow. Hugs xx

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, this really is a girly card - pink, pearls and flowers - what more could we ask for :-) I love the way the Nasturtium cluster echos the shape of the Gemini and thank you for showing us how you created the larger flower in the centre. Altogether a beautiful card.
I am looking forward to seeing the samples of your new dies but as pennies are a bit short on the ground this month all those that I *need* will have to go on my very long list.

Suemac - Happy Birthday to you and I hope you do have a fabulous day.
PP Yvonne - I hope you haven't over-exerted yourself with such an early comment lol

Good Morning Ladies!
Here we are on Launch Eve looking forward to the big reveal but treated to a beautiful, feminine card today.
I, too, am in love with the Nasturtium Cluster die....its been on my radar for awhile so now if my bank account would catch up with my wish list....I know several I must have on the new launch and of course when I see the new, gorgeous Sue samples I will want others which haven't occurred to me as yet.
Sam, if you got that small flower wrong, I am sure that either will work. You astound me that you can analyze Sue's cards so well. I refer to your posts often.
where is Pam? Her poor computer must be very sick.
We all miss Elaine as well,

I have my list ready but know that will change over the next few days. Thank you Sue for all your hard work.

Suzzette Yandle said...

Gorgeous card design. Love, love, love it! Great video, too. The Nasturtium Cluster flowers and spray are lovely. I really like the rose looking flower you made with this die for your card. The size of the finished larger flower will be perfect for my card making. This Finishing Touches die set is definitely on my "to buy" list. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

A lovely, delicate card. I especially like the flower clusters used in this way.

Marie from Longridge..... I don't know if you are watching the video on an iPad. If you are, trying closing everything down and then log back on from scratch. I sometimes lose sound on the videos and find this is the best way the get it back.

Today's card is absolutely gorgeous Sue !!! I love the colours you have used but above all the dies are fantastic together !!! The Ella dies are stunning Sue. I really have to have this die set. The Columba Gemini looks really beautiful. Very delicate. The Nasturtium Cluster die is Sooo beautiful. I have this die but I have not used it yet. I will definately be using it now I have watched your fab video showing how to make the flowers. Thankyou for your fab video Sue. I did not realise your new die release is starting tomorrow !!!
