Colourful Spring Card



Hi bloggers!  I just love this bright springtime card and it is so easy to achieve too!  The best thing about it is that it only uses a single die set!













 The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue. What a happy colourful sample that I'm sure I've seen you demo on HOCHANDA, forgive me if I'm getting mixed up with a similar kind. This must show just how versatile this die is as a stand alone die or one that can be snipped here and there to show it in a different light. This is on my very very long list of needs but as Fathers day is fast approaching your new Pressed Shirt is hopefully on its way for when I feel like crafting again to prepare for the May market. Will enjoy watching the Sue Wilson way with a large hot milky and cinnamon coffee later. Thanks for starting our day with another smile xxx

A beautiful card.
Love the pretty colours and the die you have used :))

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

This is the die that started the January die release launch - I loved it so much that I had to have it, not only is it perfect for a quick one-die card but also has plenty of snippability potential...it was well worth the investment...

Good Morning Sue. What a refreshing spring or summer looking card. And very versatile as it can be used for any occasions by changing the sentiment. As usual you have given us a video that's easy to follow......and with all those little tips that make so much difference you have made it simple enough for the new card makers as well as the experienced ones. Beautiful work Sue. Sending
best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards

A bright, cheerful card which I saw you demo on HOCHANDA & you made it look very quick & easy. Unfortunately don’t have this die, on the list but been pushed further down since your latest release! I like the way you can alter the look by snipping into it. Thank you Sue.

Morning Sue, what a lovely cheerful card! Love the die set and love all the colours you have used! Love Jean xxx

Sue MacFall said...

What pretty colours, so fresh and springlike. I love the layout too, thank you Sue.

Donita Naylor said...

Amazing how you can coordinate the frame and the focal element by using the same Distress colors. Once you showed this, I went looking for the journaling stamps, and I love them! They just look so delicious in those colors. And the glitterbitz adds another layer of wonderful.

Once again, your video is fun and helpful.

I was recently working with some Spellbinder dies, and compared to your dies, the Spellbinders seem dull. Yours really bite in and cut clean and sharp, even the really intricate ones.

Enjoy your Tuesday!

Best to all.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I fell in love with this card and die on the launch way back in January. I watched the video as soon as it was available and also enjoyed your demonstration on Hochanda. The die has been at the top of my list since then and I am hopeful that I will very soon be able to reduce the list by a few, the trouble is the list just keeps getting longer and longer with each new release :-).

Carmen-Dorothy - thinking of you and your fellow Torontonians in the aftermath of yesterday's tragedy. :-(

Muriel Kelly said...

Hello Sue and all
Like others I fell in love with this set and card in the release and had to have it !! So glad I did it is so pretty.
My grand daughter was here today and back tomorrow - she loves my craft room and although only 8 she is so careful with everything and loved making cards with me- she loves the city skyline and glitter on the stained glass - hopefully building some great skills and memories.
Hugs

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue

A lovely spring card today. Lovely, especially as Spring seems to have disappeared again.
Good that it uses only one die set, but the die set is versatile and can be snipped into to create different types of cards.

Love Helen xxx

Hi Sue. Love this card, probably mostly to do with the colours you have used. I have the stamps and the distress oxides but do not yet have the die so it looks as though it is going to have to move to the top of my shopping list!
