Ivy Garden Card




Hi bloggers!  Let's show off the Ivy Garden Background die today.  It makes an entire card as it gives you all the necessary pieces.  Add in some pixie powders for the real Wow factor!








 The finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x  7 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue,

This reminds me of a burst of spring when everything is starting to turn green after the long winter. It's so bright and fresh. The die is so intricate and creates the perfect card with very little effort thanks to your fabulous dies. Love those pixie powders.

Have a wonderful day.

Morning Sue. This die collection would make it easy for anyone at any level to make a card with the wow factor. Looking back at my first attempts of card making years ago (pre Sue Wilson dies) I thought I was the bee's knees when in fact they were totally poop lol. Now the people new to craft that are buying your collections have all they need to give them the confidence to make something special. This ivy garden is all you need to put a smile on anyone's face, the colours of pixie powders you've used to create this sample sings spring is bursting free, and with just a change of colour will fit in with the change of seasons. As soon as this die was launched there were SO many stunning cards popping up on Paul's fb group and this was all that was used apart from a sentiment because this die is all that is needed plus it's so useful to use on a full sheet of Pixied card if you're not keen on the overall look as when cut into smaller pieces pixied card looks so different. Looking forward to watching the tutorial as part of my recovery and I can't think of a better sample to ease us back into one post a day. Have a bright sunny cheerful day xxx

Good morning Sue, this is such a pretty card which looks as if you have spent ages making it yet, it's the intricate dies which you bring us that's done all of the hard work. Thank you so much. Enjoy your weekend. Hugs xx Pauline from Teesside

Really lovely card today! Love the different shades of green you've used together and the ivy dies are just fab. Debra x

Janice K said...

Good morning Sue,
I love this card (and die), the beautiful Pixie Powder background is stunning and the detail very realistic. X

Barbara (C) said...

The Pixie Powders really set off today's card. Add a sentiment to the ivy die and you have an instant card. Another great die in the latest release.

Donita Naylor said...

I never would have noticed that you put the white ivy corners back in. I found my eyes had locked into thinking the leaves were white, so when I looked at the circle, I couldn't make sense of it.

We're coming up on my favorite part of spring, where each kind of plant is a different color green.

Best to all,
Donita

Kiraneries said...

Hi Sue,a beautiful card. Lovely colours with your pixie powders. Thanks for your video.

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Stunning post, love the pixie powders and perfect colour for the dies

stitchingranny said...

Lovely card today. I prefer the one you made on the video where you cut the corners again in white and filled them back into place to give the lovely embossed detail. The paper piecing didn't look too fiddly or difficult and looks so much more finished that the one in the photos, making it well worth that little bit extra effort.

Hugs Helen xx

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I loved this set on launch and it went on my very long wish list straight away. Unfortunately it is still languishing there as others have leap-frogged over it but I am sure it will come here one day. The card is gorgeous in its simplicity and using the pixies gives it a lovely glow. Great video as usual, thank you.

Super card and video. Gorgeous pixie powder background for the Ivy Garden dies. I've been playing with the pixies today, ready to use the card with my newly acquired Passion Flower die set.

Take care everyone.

CCM said...

Hi Sue,
Enjoyed your video as always.Glad I watched this specific video where the card you made it is slightly different than the one you posted:on the one from video you cut the outer die again in white and put the white ivy corners back in, while on the card posted here you can see the white background. Small difference that at the first glance you don't even notice. Both cards are bright and fresh,celebrating the arrival of long awaited spring.
Hugs from Toronto to you all and special hugs to all missing friends.
Still a newbie to Craft / not longer the newest, or the only across the pond Wilsonette
