Many Thanks

 Good Sunday morning all!  How about a bright and cheery Pansy Flower Square card!  I started with the Herringbone background and I cut it twice in white.  I glued them together going in opposite directions, then added a white backing behind.  I cut the Pansy Flower Square in white and added it to a backing with a sticky adhesive sheet added to it.  I paper pieced the pansy by cutting it in various colours then adding them back into the die cut.  I mounted it in a diamond orientation in the centre of the background.  I used the Many Thanks sentiment cut out of Iris card with a white shadow added.  White on white mats and layers completed the card.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Hi Sue. What a bright,colourful, happy sample on this bright sunny morning in the cottage in the beautiful countryside, I can't think of a better way to start a Sunday. If Particraft-a-holics don't smile when they see this they must be still sleepy lol. To those spending time with their dad's on father's day, enjoy your special day with this special man. 40yrs and so happy xxx 😉

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, a lovely bright sunny Pansy to greet us today, the clouds are hovering over head, mainly dark grey so looks like we are in for some more rain, but at least we are high up so no chance of being flooded like some people are, my heart goes out to them. However, I digress, this is a beautiful sample today, I actually have all of those dies so could make this later couldn't I.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Hello Sue, a beautifully card, adore all the flower squares but I think the pansy is my favourite. Very grey and windy here, think we are in for more rain.

Hello Sue and all
Pansy flower square, herringbone background, shadow sentiment and paper piecing, what is not to love about this one? When I can eventually craft again, this is on top of my list

Marie P. from Longridge said...

G'morning Sue.
My favourite flower is the Pansy and especially the purple one I love the way you have laid it against the yellow one as those 2 colours together can often be seen by people of low vision (like me) I don't have the die but having seen your lovely card I may well put it on my 'WANT IT' list
Hugs.

Lovely card I really enjoy paper piecing if it’s not too fiddly These dies are perfect for it

Pauline Austen said...

Morning Sue,What a sunny, cheerful pansy card. As I write this I'm looking at my pansies in the hanging baskets outside. Who doesn't love a pansy and with this die, you could have them all year round!
It's my husband's birthday today so he celebrates 'a two -fer' as we say and he loved his card using your African animals (zebras) stamp and die.
Enjoy your father's day those of you who are still fortunate enough to do so. Still, I look back on special memories. Hugs xx Pauline from Teesside

Good Morning Sue and all
What a beautiful card this morning and I do love seeing your creations with the flower squares. Love how you have created the background with Herringbone by cutting twice and crossing over . The pansy colours are beautiful and one of my favourite flowers and the sentiment is a perfect size.
Crafty hugs to all , Wendy

Many congratulations to Steph and her hubby

Hi Sue. Love that herringbone background and what a good idea to use the pansy in a diamond orientation which makes it look completely different.

Hi Sue
Beautiful card, I do love your flower squares but the pansy is one of two that I don’t have. Having just bought the poinsettia flower square I will now be concentrating on my Christmas cards so maybe sometime in the future I will get the lovely pansy

Happy 40th anniversary to Steph and Andrew

Love and hugs to everyone
Pat

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue

A beautiful and bright card. Love the pansies especially in such bright colours. The background of the herringbone die used twice looks amazing too and a nice contrast to the pansy square.

To Steph and hubby Andrew, congratulations on your Ruby Wedding. I hope you received some beautiful cards. Enjoy your special day. Xx

Love Helen xxx

Suzzette Yandle said...

Love your stain glass dies and your paper piecing. Your Herringbone die makes an interesting background when you place the cuts in opposite direction. Value for one's money. I like that.

Hi Sue, a really lovely bright and cheerful CAS card. I love all the flower squares but I think the pansy is my favourite as no matter how I use it, it never fails to make me smile.

Steph - Congratulations and Happy Ruby Anniversary to you and Andrew, hope you are both having a great day.

Lisa.m.hilder@gmail.com said...

Love how you've used the herringbone background both ways. I've never been keen on white on white, but the more I see you doing it the more I think I must give it a try!!
Obviously as I've said in the Christmas launch, I usually only read your blogs from the emails I get and never comment. But I will try from now on! Maybe not every day.

One thing I would like, maybe it is somewhere and I'm not looking correctly is a list of everything you've used for each demo. For example the exact colour card, make and dimensions, what glue you use (spray that you used yesterday in the video for example) any anything else. I really struggle with colour combinations and it would be so so helpful to know what your using or even maybe do a colour chart?
Thanks sue your fab and my favourite crafter by miles!! Lisa xx
