Alternate Style Poppy Card

Hi bloggers!  I just love flower dies that can be used in different ways to create completely different looks for your projects.  Today's video will show you another way to use the Exquisite Poppy dies to do just that.  I hope you will enjoy it!

Love this card and the flowers are beautiful. I need to really study the video to try to copy these. I'm not very good with flowers - they never look as good as yours.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, gorgeous, have I said it before gorgeous, o shall I say it again gorgeous, I love it, the dies you have used fabulous and of course the wonderful poppies, well your a big winner with me on this one again Sue.

Elaine, why on earth didn't the consultant order Andrew's scan before the appointment, it is such a worry and very unnecessary - wish they would get organized, hope you don't have to wait too long.

Tina and Mick, how are things

Yvonne, your friends Jo and her Mum have got the right attitude on this long journey, if it helps them and I am sure it would if it was me, then that is the way forward for them, it is funny though, morecombe and wise and little and large.

I am sure there are other's I have forgot, so catch this big hug coming your way.

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

Pam said...

Gorgeous card, love those poppies.
Elaine, I'm sorry Andrews visit didn't go as hoped, you are right to feel frustrated with all of the waiting.
Tina, how did it go with Mick yesterday.
Yvonne, your friends are very brave and positive, good for them.
Tracey, glad you got sorted with Drs , just try and rest over the next few weeks.
June, hope you are okay, you had an emotional time.
Hugs to all.

CraftySuetoo said...

Good morning Sue and everyone. Gorgeous card, love everything about it.
Tracy, I know what you mean about Drs not reading notes, you'd think it would save them time if they had an idea of a patient's background. I'm glad you've been signed off again but you do know that if you're ill when you're due holiday you use the sick note not your holiday days. Hugs to all. Sue xxx

Steph Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. I've loved and admired this sample each time I've seen it, and still do, it's so pretty and feminine. Your idea is a great one for anyone that has this beautiful poppy but not the cornflower as now we have two species of sweet flowers from one die, which you are so good at doing. Will get the knowledge from your tutorials a little later.
Sending hugs for the day as usually xx

Barbara (C) said...

A stunning card. Love the versatility of the Poppy Die to make so many variations. Great tutorial for crafters of all experience.

Hi Sue - I just loved this card the first time I saw it and without the beautiful poppies and in different colours it would make a great card for a man. Your video shows everything perfectly and is so helpful. Thank you for giving us more ideas and inspiration. Sending best wishes

Beautiful card and more lovely poppies.

cheryl brown said...

Morning Sue,

Another beautiful card this morning, I really must get the poppy dies. I think that is the only flower I do have except for a poppy stamp.

Thank you for such lovely welcome back messages, they really gave my spirits a lift.

Tracy, I can totally sympathise with your doctor woes. My agoraphobia can be such a drawback at times for me and it annoys me too when you cannot get an appt with your usual doctor. I have lost count of the number of times that I am given appts at all hours during the day and evening instead of early morning ones so I do not have to wait in the waiting rooms too long. When I ring up to change the time given, the Appointments Dept. claims they have no knowledge of my condition. My response this year to them was "Well it should be marked in RED on my notes and why can't you read that when you book me into an unsuitable time? and I have to do this every year". Their stock answer? "Your Doctor/consultant has not told us of this". Yet I know that they do. DOH!

Gurt big hugs to all that in need of one today.
Love 7 hugs

Lovely card, Sue, and poppies again - not complaining, my favourites, too! Brilliant video, as ever, thank you so much.
Tracy, hard to believe it's nearly a year - pleased to hear you got your extra sick time so enjoy as much as you can.
Yvonne G - your 'party piece' sounds a hoot, looks like a good night ahead.
Hugs for all - and extra for Kitty, Maria, Steph, Laine, Lorraine F and Wheely.

nattyboots said...

Hi Sue
Love your beautiful card and how you use your dies ,you are just one very talented Lady, I will watch your video later with my usual coffee.

Thank you for your continued support for Andrew { i think he is now used to the waiting for the next appointment etc etc before he moves on to the next step , hopefully he wont have to wait too long } He has gone back to his Caravan to chill out , read and fish , Daniel is going to open any mail that comes from the Hospital ,if an appointment is made Andrew is only one and a half hours away from home.

Thinking of you all and big hugs to all who need one

Lovely card Sue. The poppies look great altered. Love the glittery background. I adore the lattice background, it's at the top of my wish list.

The weather is dull here in North Wales today. We were supposed to be taking daughter for a trip to the coast, the sea air will be good for all of us. There's a super craft shop in Llandudno if we need to shelter from the rain LOL

Have a lovely day all.

Hi sue and crafters.
Oooh pretty pretty. The more I look at the poppies the more I want the die. Had overlooked them before but I guess that's ur plan isn't it sue?? To get me to buy more naughty lady u are lol.

Crafty sue too. Yes I knew I'd get holidays back when using the sick note. I'd already had to rebook out 2 weeks at my last work meeting because it's time next month to book out 2017/2018 holidays and the system won't allow u to do it if u have more than an hour to book out. Lol but thanks anyway always good to be in the know about these things xx

Cheryl. Nice to see u back.

Not seen wheely or Norah for a bit. Hope u guys are ok. Hopefully see u soon xx

Love to all xx

Hi Sue
What a beautiful card today, love the background die you gave used and also those tags, must have overlooked them!! Yet another use for this beautiful poppy! I'm determined to get it now, it's out of stock on my usual site but I will look elsewhere I think. I'm making some cakes for a friend today so I will buy them with my earnings. Take care

Good morning Sue.
A stunning card with lots of lovely details and bling. A very clever way of adapting the poppy die. Thank you for the great inspiration and tutorial. X

Bejay said...

Morning, Sue,
Another wonderful way to use your poppies! Can't wait to watch the video. The dies are slowly creeping to the top of my wish list so hopefully I'll soon be able to give all these different ideas a try. Until then though I have the die cuts that Pam sent me to practise with :).
My goodness, what a difference a day makes...not sure how the weather is up country but in my part of Cornwall we seem to be getting one day wet, one day dry!! It's sunny and windy today after the showers for most of yesterday. I wonder if this heat wave will really arrive...I just hope if it does that it's a drier heat, I just can't deal with all the humidity we've been getting lately.
One more room sorted this morning (the kitchen) all I need to do now is wash the floor. I'm getting ever closer to clearing the craft that I can get in there and play with all the new goodies that have been arriving with my craft magazines. I also need to sew my new nets which are about an inch too long and are annoying me lol. I really hate sewing though so maybe the end of the craft room where my machine lives will be the last bit I clear out lol.
Happy Thursday everyone.
Bejay xx

Hi Sue, a gorgeous card and I love the way you have adapted the poppy dies to create something completely different. I have been loving all the blues/lilacs this week but please could we have something in yellow or green just for a change? I know the dies can look completely different when used with other colours, I just need the imagination to see it :D

The Tags From The Belgian Collection, The Superb Background From The Belgian Collection,
Last But Not Least The Stunning Lattice Frame (Which I Love) Adding Pearls Here And There
Diamond Sprinkles For That Little Bit Of Bling.
The Photograph Shots On Your Blog, That You Took At Each Stage Of The Card Gave Us A Clear Understanding

I Love The Very Beautiful Exquisite Poppies They Look Truly Stunning In What Ever Colour You Choose To
Produce Them.
I Love Your Sentiment "You're Wonderful" (Right Back At You) From The Creative Expression Clear Set I Must Say I Love

Hi sue, I would love to win this card, it would be a honour and go straight into a frame, crafty hugs Julie laz xx

Just to let you no I've not commented on anything for a full week, I don't know if anyone no's about this
But due to my illness I went blind in one eye, it's been like this for 2 years now and so hard to live with cos of my crafting and I'm only 44 and with the other illness which I've had for 11 years,
on Monday I went to see a different eye doctor, and they said I could have a donor eye, but the recovery would be 4 to 6 months, I don't know what to do, so I was wondering if anybody knew anyone who has had one or no's anything about it,
I can't listen to doctors anymore, because of my other illness I listened to the doctor and 7 surgeries later I'm in a wheelchair, sorry to go on and on, just wondering if anyone no's many thanks Julie laz xxx

Sue I always love when all you have to do to a die cut is add a few tweaks and you are looking at a virtually new item!! Love the color combo on this card, well done!!!

Hi Sue, what a lovely card today, I love how you show us how to use your dies to achieve different results.

Anonymous said...

So your idea to cut the petals. Also have taken notice of your tip in recent videos and again today to put the dies through the machine at an angle. I absolutely love my Spellbinder Platinum cuts intricate dies first time, every time. So nice and such a time saver not to have to run dies through several times to get a complete cut. The machine really does what they say it will do. I also cut 10 thicknesses of cardstock in one pass the other day with one of my steel rule dies. When I'm making paper flowers, this is a major time saver.

Great card, as always, and always love the videos since I'm such a visual learner.

Crewe Trish said...

Hello Sue
This is my sort of card I don't have the poppy die yet but it is next on my list. Julie so sorry to hear about your problems there are usually support groups run by real patients for most illnesses they might help. Tina it was great to hear the hospital were so pleased with Micks progress your care is certainly making a difference. Elaine Mick has such a positive attitude I hope he enjoys his time away. Pam was really worried when I couldn't see your comment at first. On a happy note our debit card has repaid the extra money we lost following our holiday firm collapse.

Tressa said...

Beautiful card. This is the first time I have noted this Belgian background die and really like it. Impressed by the different use of the poppy dies and love the end product.

Hi Sue. WOW !!! This card is gorgeous !!! I love the colours you have used for this one. The Belgian background die is beautiful and so are the Belgian tags. Really lovely Art Deco style designs. I love the effect achieved by using the lattice shadow box die underneath, very pretty with all the pearls on it. It looks like there is glitter on the Belgian background to me. I have not yet had the chance to watch your fab video Sue. I will watch it tomorrow when I get some time to myself and I can concentrate properly. Your poppies look absolutely amazing and I can't wait to see how you made them into these gorgeously beautiful flowers !!! x x x
I am sorry I was unable to comment yesterday but just to say Sue that I think yesterday's card is truly stunning !!! I am very lucky as my Steve bought me the Noble Circles as a suprise present, and it isn't even my Birthday or anything !!! They arrived only yesterday too !!! I am now inspired to make yesterday's card but I need to get the petite Atlas striplet and I really need / want / have to have your stunning paper pad !!! As always Sue you have created the most beautiful poppy flowers. Thank you so much for sharing your stunning cards. Sending you lots of love and hugs Sue from Tres x x x
