Rustic Floral Thank You

Hello there crafters!  The Cornflowers die is one of those that you just have to see in action to appreciate.  I think you will love how it looks when used with old dictionary pages too, very vintage!

Buy from Joanna Sheen

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
I adore this mornings' card, I remember being blown away when you first made a rose out of your bargain dictionary. I went straight to a charity shop to buy one and it's still going. One of my favourite things to make are flowers and your cornflower dies have quickly become one of my favourites. I love the Karft card with the red another 'must try', I tend to only use Kraft card for male cards but you've shown us that you can make really nice girlie cards by just adding colour. I enjoyed the video thanks for sharing your ideas.

Love the cornflowers, love the craft card especially with the red, just love everything about this card. This creation is just stunning. I can't wait to watch this video in a little while.
You are a genius Sue and I have decided that when I grow up I want to be a Sue. Lol!

Managed a couple of videos yesterday. Going to watch todays video and then aim for one catch up video a day until I'm up to speed.
Theresa - did you manage your marathon?
Wheely Bad - feeling your frustration but be good and don't rush x
Brenda - Happy Anniversary for yesterday x
Deb C - I've only been commenting on Sue's blog since the end of April. I love reading every ones comments. It satisfies my incredibly curious (nosey) personality. You are NOT an outsider. All Wilsonnettes share a love and admiration for our great 'leader' - the awesome Sue Wilson. I think we all feel like one big happy family and although I have never met anyone in person you do start to feel that you know people very quickly. I love going back and reading the comments that follow mine before commenting the next day. Your encouragement and congratulations will be hugely appreciated. I hope this has answered your question but I think others had already done that x
I can see blue skies and sunshine when I look out of the window. Have a lovely day everyone. Sending love and hugs your way

Just adore the flowers on this card Sue, and as mentioned by Chris Curry above they would be stunning in blue vellum, (thanks for that idea Chris).
Not sure about the colour combination on the card, but that's just personal choice, the design is wonderful.

Hi Sue,
I got such a surprise when I saw this card this morning as it is so different . However it is really growing on me, a bit like your lovely cornflowers! I love the cornflower die and use it often. The red really makes a statement with the Kraft card! I need to use it more
Norah - Happy Birthday ! Hope you have a lovely day and that Kirsten and baby Harry are both doing well.
Yorkielass - Happy Birthday to you too!
We were all new Wilsonettes once! We are all one happy bunch of crafters.
Thank you Sue,
Lots of love, Myra xxx

Unknown said...

Good morning Sue,

Another damp and cloudy day in Stirling(global warming hasn't reached bonny Scotland thus far!), which gives me plenty of opportunity to catch up on some of your fabulous demos. They are just so useful when you suffer from brain freeze with the written word.
I have never used Kraft card, it reminds me of cardboard, however mixing it up with red and cream really adds a feminine touch so I may be a convert now. I really like the effect of the newsprint and cornflower dies, I quite like a bit of shabby chic now and again too, it is a refreshing change and is about as close to distressing that I am comfortable with- paper tearing is so out of my comfort zone but it can be quite liberating if done in small doses.

Crafty hugs and kisses,

Steph Cotterill said...

Hi there Sue.
Must say, that at first sight I wasn't too sure, think it maybe the kraftcard, never a favourite of mine, but its grown on me, your card that is. I think its the pop of red and those adorable little cornflower dies you have used.
So another winner for me, and as always, really enjoyed the video.
Not yet used any of my new anniversary dies as yet as still 'recovering' from our day out ! I got as far as putting them on magnetic sheets and introduced them to their sibblings, thought id give them time to get to know each other in their storage box before dragging them away, in other words, I've felt too lazy to do anything ! Hoping to change that later if body and mind are willing later ! Oh must say... Sparkle texture paste and mask = sucess : ) wonders never cease lol.
Sending hugs to you Sue.

I love, love, love it when we get a card complete with bows and stick pins, and they look equally classy on kraft card too. Your videos are so easy to follow and I am going to attempt this one today as I have to make a 'thank you' card. I have the sentiment die too and have used it several times. It cuts beautifully on all types of card. Whilst I haven't got an old dictionary, I might just give the telephone directory a go. Hugs xx Pauline A

Hi Sue and lovely crafty ladies,
not watched the video yet, saving for later when I have time to sit down with a brew and relax. I've just made a card with the cornflowers and my son was very impressed because he thought I'd cut each petal out by hand lol, then when I showed him the dies he said I'd cheated ha ha. I love these cut out of books, they're so pretty. They's look good out of sheet music too! Thank you Sue for the inspiration and all the new ideas to try.
I just want to say a special thank you to Frances, P in Wales, Lynda, Saba, Tres, Melody and Yvonne for your very kind words, you have bucked me up no end. Tres, I know exactly where your coming from, my brain is addled and I sometimes find the volume of what's going on a bit overwhelming that I just can't keep up. I think you and all the Wilsonettes are very special and there is a great deal of love between everyone on the blog which I have truly felt personally in the last day, so thank you.
Love & blessings to all - Deb C xx

Just got to wait now for next Thursday when the work starts and hopefully by the end of next weekend it should all be sorted.

Hi Sue,
Late again today, been a busy day. Stunning card, I love the Kraft card with that pop of red. The cornflower die is one of my favourites and looks amazing made from an old dictionary, however, I just can't destroy a dictionary, but I do have some old books so I might steel my nerves and try to use one of them .lol

Deb C thank you for the idea to use sheet music instead of an old book, I might have less trauma if I use that instead!!!
Norah and Yorkielass hope you have both had a lovely birthday.
Alison, a mile is a long way to go for for a shower, make sure you keep your towel tightly wrapped around you for the journey back!

Love and hugs for all

Hi Sue. I am very late today !! I LOVE today's card and video !! As always your video is fab with lots of great tips and ideas !! Your card is fantastic Sue !! I love the rustic feel of it. I love all the dies you have used and I can't quite believe how well the Austrian Dies match together with the Caribbean Border die !! Their patterns look great together !! I love the rustic style cornflowers - just beautiful. I am not sure about using a dictionary or old book but I love the idea that someone mentioned about using coloured vellum. I think that would be a great variation. I am still unsure of Kraft card and I don't use ever use it. I do however have some different shades of brown card that I use quite a lot. (Especially for men's cards.) I love your bow and I am so pleased to see your beautiful stick pins are back !! Thanks for sharing another great video and beautiful card. Sending you and your family lots of love and special hugs today from Tres x x x

Hi Deb C, Thank you so much for your lovely comments. I love getting to know new people and make new crafty friends. I only have one crafty friend where I live and that is my step daughter who does not live with us. She is now almost 19 and does not really craft much with me any more. I do not know any more crafty minded people so visiting Sue's blog every day really cheers me up and makes me feel like part of a big crafty family. Take care. Sending you lots of love and hugs from Tres x x x

Norah and Yorkielass, just to wish you both a big Happy Birthaday !!! I hope you both had a wonderful day. Lots of love to you both from Tres x x x

An interesting way to make flowers, Sue. Ideal for a more grungy look or for using on male cards :-)

Hugs and Best Wishes to everyone,

Good morning Sue,

Have a crafty weekend everyone.
