Morning Sue, what a beautiful card, love the hexagon dies with the intricate patterns. Off to watch the video. Have a great day everyone. Bx

Steph Cotterill said...

What a beautiful start to the day. Youve made so many stunning samples with this collection of gorgeous dies. They are so very intricut and pretty and lend themselves to the most stunning backgrounds. The cards that are coming through on Facebook are just astounding Sue, followers of your inspiration and work are doing the most amazing pieces of art and showing their outstanding talent of which I'm so envious in a friendly way. I can't financially invest in the Hexagonal or Octagon collection of dies, but I'm certainly loving and investing in all the beautiful special cards I'm seeing about, thank you.
Sending love and hugs and hoping your day is full of laughter and love xxx

Morning Sue, I must say that this card shows just how fabulous your hexagon dies are. The make the most amazing show pieces. I can't wait to get back and start using mine. Not that my offerings will be half as good as yours, but I enjoy using your dies to see what I can come up with,and that's what crafting is all about. Hugs xx Pauline in S.A.

Hello Sue and all
Absolutely stunning card today Sue. Love the colour and the delicate look of the beautiful dies and of course the flowers. Will watch the video later.
Karen M I hope you are enjoying Australia wherever you are, the weather here is perfect for summer at the moment though maybe not for moving craft room ! Thank you for the good wishes, the big furniture was moved this morning so now it is a matter of moving the arsenal from the garage to the craft room so that my poor little car can have his home back.
Hugs to missing friends and all Wilsonettes

Good morning Sue,
Hexagons really appeal to me, way back in 1985 I broke with tradition and had a hexagon three tiered wedding cake! Your card is stunning, so filigree and feminine with the use of vellum. Thank you for the wonderful inspiration.x

Barbara (C) said...

A beautiful card today using one of my favourite geometric shapes. A lovely finishing touch of inking the edges of the flowers to co-ordinate with the background colour.

Lyn Cleasby said...

Lovely card. The hexagons are really so versatile. Maximum effect.

Barbara Gosden said...

Hi Sue
A beautiful card, love the flowers. I'm loving the hexagons. Looking forward to watching the video later.
B xx

Donita Naylor said...

Well put, Lyn Cleasby: Maximum effect. And Marion Scott, thank you for the word delicacy. Everything together, with the flowers done a different way, and the touch of blue, all add up to terrific.

I was thinking about the card with the high and low stamping. You know how some people wanted to add a plain color brpetween the layers of stamped flowers? Well what if you stamped two pages of flowers, each using only half the colors. Then cut the layers, put every other one in one pile and the corresponding ones in another pile and make two cards, with the layers all flowers but alternating light and dark, or however you divided your colors. Or stamp one page with leaves and one page with flowers and alternate those in the layers.

If I may join the chorus of those who say how nice the Hexagons are to work with. If I had known the Octogons were coming, I might have waited to see which ones I like better. But I already invested in the Hexagons, so I'll have to do without the Octogons.

One more day until Friday!

Best, Donita

Hi Sue - you have made such a beautiful card with these hexagon dies. Thees are my absolute favourites as they are so lacy and delicate and look amazing when they are layered and also make great standalone cards too. Thank you Sue for another wonderful card and more ideas. Sending best wishes

Muriel - glad to hear the craft room move is going well...I've just started "rationalising" my craft stash - anything I haven't used during the last five years is going to be kicked into touch!...lol

Ann said...

Good Morning Sue. You are simply amazing. The last two cards you have shown are really me. They are stunning and you couldn't have posted them at a better time for me. A lady who attends my line dance class is 80 years old next month and I have been asked by three of her friend for an extra special card. So have three cards to make for the same lady plus one from myself. Thank heaven for party craft and you Sue. I am sure I am on a winner with any of your cards. And you know what...... how much I will enjoy scrolling back and choosing which one's to add my own ideas to. I don't know where any of this family of bloggers would be without you.
June I agree with you..... I too am missing friends from the partycraft family..... come back soon. Pam... Elaine.... Helen. I hope everything is ok with you all. Best Wishes and hugs to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Hello Sue,
Another gorgeous card today! I love these Hexagons. I only have one set so far but it’s amazing what can be done with just one set! You don’t need them all ladies and you can always add another set later! They are a considered purchase but worth it!
Muriel - I’m about to embark on a Craft Room upgrade! Like Izzy I’m getting rid of stuff that hasn’t been used for a while. I need to rethink desk and some storage. I’m removing the single bed. We do not need it. Should have done this years ago!
Have a good day , whatever you are doing! Well, so long as it’s legal! Lol.
Love Myra ( Friend of Maureen) xxx

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, another gorgeous card, it is almost like a negative of yesterday's. I was interested to see how you had made the coloured and vellum background - easy when you know how :-) I love the Pinwheel flowers and you are showing us so many ways to use them they need never look the same twice. Beautiful card that I love.

Hi Sue and everyone

What a gorgeous card. I have just watched the video and it was lovely to watch it being made. I loved yesterday’s card, but this one is even better. Those pinwheel flowers are definitely a must. The touch of vellum makes it so special. I could look at these types of card all day.

Love the hexagons. Donita, same here. I bought them and the octagons will have to be passed up especially with a long list from the new launch to work at..... I do love Hexagons so its not a huge sacrifice. I think I would have chosen them anyway.
This is a beautiful card showing us why we had to have this die set. I also love, love the pinwheel flowers. They are my favorite but I have the new flowers on the way and I am sure they will be high on my favorites list too.
Just saw Julia on Hochanda making beautiful cards with Phill's stamps and some of Sue's dies too. She is delightful and a great temptress.
