Morning Sue. It really IS pretty. I adore this die, but have had to sit on my debit card as there are so many Accessorie dies that I need to collect for my market based cards, but I know deep down that if finances and choices didn't stand in my way this would certainly be in my collection right now, so I'm off to watch you put this gorgeous sample together with this beautiful pretty die. I was happy to see you had 101 comments left yesterday, as it's so sad to see the numbers decrease after a free die launch is over, maybe those that decided to leave a year or so are starting to filter back, how lovely it would be to see those names again. Whatever your plans have a lovely day, I'm looking forward to see what Phill does with your lovely collections xxx

Morning Sue
Beautiful x
The video will have to wait. Lunch date with friends today.
Phill doing a first class job of showing off your dies Sue. When you launched them I fell in love with each and every one of them. To see them in action so very soon following a launch really is a treat x
And he has the Stitched Rectangles set B on the show - still smiling about winning those x
He has mentioned his shimmer shakers a few times. It is as if he is teasing me personally. I can't wait to see them in action.
Julia also did you proud. It is so lovely to watch the different spin that others put on the cards they make using your babies.
The Crystal Tints, which Julia had on her show really rocked my boat and have gone onto my wish/want/must have list x
As mentioned out for lunch - the effort required these days to look presentable is much more time consuming than ever before. Lol. Pick up at 12 - better get started - would hate to put people off their food x
Lots of love to all specially missing friends x

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

Very pretty card, the Flora die is on the wish list as are the Stitched Octagons which frame the focal point so well and you've also used my favourite form of bling, the Iced Snow...lush!

Beautiful card Sue. I love this little die it is so different.

Hi Sue - love everything about this card! The video is so explicit and I especially love the two tone stamping round the edges and vellum is such a gentle touch. The sentiment stamp is meant for you Sue! Sending best wishes

Love and hugs to everyone

Donita Naylor said...

What an interesting effect you achieved with one stamp in color and the same stamp in black, covered by microbeads. (Or was it Iced Snow?) It has the effect of a fancy tile under water, perhaps in a fountain in Italy.

And I'm guessing the lovely and versatile Flora would look equally fabulous framed by Hexagons rather than Octagons.

Going now to check out Phill's special.

Best to all,


Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, Wow !! this is stunning, and using the negative too, truly stunning !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Sue,
This die is my favourite (well one of the many), and the colours complement the die. The card is so beautiful, the frame sets it off and is the finishing touch to the whole gorgeous creation.

I just love that your foundation/nesting dies are larger....so many are for A2 sized cards which I rarely make. Most of mine are 6x6, 5x7 or larger.

Great card today, as always.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, this card is beautiful and I am sending the sentiment back to you. Flora is so pretty whether you use the inner or outer cut and I love the double stamping around the edge. Wisteria is one of my favourite colours and when combined with vellum it is gorgeous. Love all the little pearls on the flowers as well.


Jan Sayer said...

Pretty card.
Using the negative gives double the value.

Scottydog said...

Just love your dies where we get a positive & a negative. It really changes the look of the card completely without losing any of the prettiness of the diecut. They are also cost effective! Lol! A lovely card, thank you once again Sue.

scrAPpamondo said...

Love so much the idea to frame a negative diecut!! Thanks for the inspiration! Amazing card!

Sue MacFall said...

Very elegant and classy. Thank you Sue.

Hi sue, well I’m loving your show’s today, I’ve been in hospital for weeks now, the tv in our room hasn’t been working so the man came today to fix it, I’ve got everybody watching your shows and they love it and are buying all your things,
I was rush into hospital, as I went to bed and didn’t wake up the next morning, my husband and my 20 year old son did chest compressions and I woke up a few days later and had no idea what had taken place, enough of the sad,
I’m back now and back on your blog, a lot has happened since I’ve been away, new Dies new everything, so I’m going back to take a look beautiful beautiful cards sue, big crafty hugs Julie laz xxx

Such a pretty did Sue. Thank you for the video.

Pawprintx4 said...

This was another wonderful, informative video which makes me feel like I could do this card (with your help, of course). This just goes to show we must plan our die cutting so we get a twofer rather than waste.
Loved the stamping around the edges with the two colors. I am picking up pointers on edge stamping from you and Phill today. He is doing a fantastic job selling your beautiful new dies, stamps, & embossing folders on Hochanda.
Flora is such a dainty, lovely die and the pearls do set everything off but your card on the video was lovely also....maybe pearl drops could be used.
Have a great day, everyone,
Stephanie K

Pawprintx4 said...

Julie, my word. I just read your post and what a scary experience for you. You husband and son are heroes for their quick action. I am glad you are on the mend.

Hi Sue. I love this die used like this, in fact I had to get it when I saw a similar card to this one. Love the background too, I just can't resist a bit of sparkle.


Chris Curry said...

I can’t believe I sat and enjoyed your video this morning and then didn’t comment!!! I love this die and the negative is just as brilliant as the positive. Great card Sue, love it. Thank you. Xxx

CCM said...

Hi Sue,

Thank you for the great video and for this lovely card. Those little pearls changed the look of this card and gave the elegance that any card should have it. So small but they did so much.

Julie- You went thru a lot, poor you. Welcome back and take care.

Hugs from Toronto to you all and special hugs to all missing friends.

Lovely card as usual Sue. Haven't had time to watch the video yet but looking forward to that. Thanks

Eunice said...

Stunning card Sue, love the background on this one!!! The Flora die set off and it is amazing.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW !!! Today's card is really gorgeous !!! I am not too sure about the black stamping over the violet ink but other than that I think it is a very pretty card. Your Flora die looks amazing and has been on my huge long wish list ever since I first saw it. Such a stunning, feminine, delicate die that looks great with that lovely, dreamy, soft velum underneath it. I love that you covered the black and violet stamped flower background in glitter as I think that toned down the black perfectly. The beautiful Octagon frames you made really add that touch of elegance to the card. I think the card you made in your fab video looks lovely but when you showed us the other card you had made previously with the little pearls in the centre of the flowers, then I thought that's better, the card now looks like it is finished !!! I often do that with my cards. I make something and then display it on the mantle piece for a couple of days if I am not happy with it, while I keep looking at it and figure out what it is that is missing. Once I have tweeked it again then I am happy that it is finished !!! Steve says I am too fussy !!! But he always says I am right once I have altered it !!! Thank you for sharing your fab video and gorgeous card today Sue.
I have to say that I think yesterday's card is really gorgeous too !!! You have used some beautiful dies that co-ordinate brilliantly together and I love the colours you have used to. I recently bought the Passion Flower dies but I have not used them yet. Thank you Sue for another gorgeous card. Lots of love from Tres X X X

Latenight SandyH said...

Stunning card and great video. Clever design to the die to be able to use the negative like this and have the positive to use later. No waste to clear up from the floor either, an added bonus. Love the version with the pearls.
Julie, pleased you are on the mend after such a scary experience. Well wishes to you.
Take care everyone.
