You Are The Best


Hi bloggers!   I thought I would share one of the Quilt cards from the September release.  I started by cutting the Cube Quilt out of coconut white card.  I attached it to a piece of sticky adhesive sheet that was attached to another piece of white card.  Next I cut the Cube Quilt three more times, out of aqua card, ocean card and teal card.  I kept all the fall away pieces and paper pieced them back into the design, which gives it a dimensional look.  I made a multi layered frame using the Double Stitched Squares and used a teal frame on the bottom and a wider white frame on top. I added it with foam over the Cube Quilt.  I cut the You Are The Best sentiment in teal and nipped it apart and placed it along a white Pierced Flag.  I inserted the end under the edge of the frame.  Using the Cosmos Flower set, I made three white flowers using just the outline shapes from the set.  I mounted them in opposite corners and used the leaves from the set to accent them.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

You certainly started a trend with these collections Sue I see other designers jumping on the band wagon!
I couldn't 'see' how these worked when the pre-launch emails came through but to say the samples and fb buddies cards blow my mind is an under statement, everyone that shares their work make the most gorgeous quilt like patterns. There dies are brilliant I love them just don't own them. Have a great day xxx

Karen Drew said...

Love this die as it is universal. Just by changing the colours it is a fab base for a card for anyone. Really like the colours you have used

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, I am so pleased you put this sample on today, I bought all 3 of the dies in the set and am over the moon with them, I have made 3 of these samples, and by cutting it out 3 times I was able to paper pierce them into place, love doing this. thank you Sue. Are there any more like this coming along.

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

Good Morning Sue.
I had a problem finding your post today and wasted a fair amount of time but thank goodness I remembered from a previous problem of a similar nature how to put it right.
I love the colours on today's card and also the design. I don't have all the dies for this one so will have to add it to my wish list.
Have a great day.

Good Morning Sue. Another beautiful quilt card. The quilt dies are not really my kind of thing....I like lace and flowers and frills..... But I have to say I have seen some really lovely cards made with these dies. Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, as Pat L above says, that sentiment goes back to you. Love this card and the aqua, ocean and teal card go together so well. Love also the outline of the Cosmos flower and the leaves, just enough detail without overpowering the design.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW, WOW, WOW !!! Today's card is absolutely gorgeous !!! I really love your new Quilting dies and I think the "Cubes" die set is just fabulous. So perfect for a mans card. I love, love, love the Cosmos Flower dies and managed to get them for my Birthday along with some of your other beautiful die sets to so I am one very "Happy Bunny" at the moment. I am so lucky. I really love the colours you have used with the "Cubes" die. Lovely large pieces for paper piecing to. The Quilting dies are still on my wish list. Hopefully not for to long though. A great sentiment die to. Thank you for sharing you gorgeous card today. Sending lots of love to you Sue from Tres x x x
