Doodle Rose Wreath

Hello there my crafty friends!  The Doodle Rose wreath is a whimsical die that can be used to create some lovely cards.  I have used it in today's video to create a double aperture card with different raised and recessed areas.  I hope you like it.

 The finished dimensions are 5 1/2" x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Gorgeous card Sue, lovely.
Wendy, well done you. I work with a lot if people who are now very unhappy at work due to a change in their work, you are very brave to get out, you will have a better life without it, go for the poppy dies, they are fabulous.
June, hope you continue with your good progress but take it slowly.
Betty, you sounded brighter yesterday, hope it's going well.
Elaine, so sorry Andrew is not well, give him a big gentle hug.
Tina hope Peter has managed to find a drink he likes, he must keep his fluids up.
Tina and Mick continued good wishes.
Hugs to all especially those not well. Nice to see PP back, take it slowly.

Morning Sue. What a cute card. Do you know what I was just thinking whilst enjoying the peace and quiet before my two get back from the country park resembling drowned rats !!! The way hundreds of us own the same dies from your various collections and because you have the crafting and design knowledge, you make all your collections so versatile there will never be two cards the same (unless someone replicates) I don't own this die, but many do and I bet I can safely say that every single card made with this little rose wreath will be totally different. Some companies make what I call 'one purpose' dies, it gives us one option and one option only, whereas your dies gives us hundreds of options for their use (although it has to be said that companies are following in your footsteps and producing dies very similar to your's) which is wrong in my thoughts, if they can't design their own dies from their ideas then don't take ideas from other designers and put the companies name to it ! Anyway I've put my soap box away now lol and just have time to send you a Tuesday hug, and again compliment your sweet, cute happy card, and wish you a good day xxx

Denise Bryant said...

Some clever ideas here, Sue, especially the paper piecing trick. Made easy for us with your video - thank you. Nice card, lots of uses.
Watched John late last night but drifted off half way through - so annoying. What I did see was great, though, and Alex was as enthusiastic as ever.
Wendy Pussycats - so sad you felt you had to give in your notice after all those years - however hopefully happy times ahead. Poppies GUARANTEED to cheer you up!
Bejay - my wee foster boy about the same in terms of size and naughtiness as yours - want another??!
Hugs to PP sorry you're not well enough to be up to your usual sparring with Laine, missing her too.
You okay, Tracy? Or just busy with all your new staff (as it's known in this house!).

Hi Sue. I know I have previously said that I am not a fan of the flat roses, but I am a fan of MacIntosh roses so you can probably guess that I do like this rose wreath. Very clever how you have coloured the roses on the main image.

Hi sue and crafty friends.

I was so busy I forgot to comment yesterday so apologies sue it was a Georgeous. Today's is so cute and feminine. Xx

I've been that busy as hubby has been off for a few days so I make the most of our time before I head back to work in a few weeks.
My platinum and goodies that I bought on sat are still in the box/packaging.

Today I'm doggie sitting for my mom and stepdad as they're off to Oban for the day. Zac is a massive German Shepard who just won't settle and I don't wNt him getting coloured in glitter!! Lol so I'll probably craft tomorrow xx

Betty and June hope ur doin ok after ur ops and that u will be back to normal in no time!

Wendy. U are brace giving up ur job after that amount of time. I too am 24yrs service with my company but I'm holding out for my 25years bonus then I might think about it lol xx
Love to all

Crewe Trish said...

Hello Sue
Another lovely card I wish I had just 1% of your talent. I agree with the others your dies are far superior to others I have found some of my other makes of dies have gone rusty and they weren't cheap. Elaine I hope Andrew is feeling brighter today. Wendy I always believe things happen for a reason so who knows what's around the corner.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, there is nothing wrong with a bit of whimsy now and again and there is certainly nothing wrong with this pretty card. I love the different shape and the way you created the colour for the focal wreath - a much better way than trying to individually paper piece.

Wendy pussycats - I know it will be a wrench after 24 years but I believe you have done the right thing. I have worked with several people who have made themselves physically ill through stress and being unhappy at work but too scared to leave. Much better to cut your losses and start enjoying life again. I think the poppy dies should put a smile on your face :-)


Princess Pixie! said...

Hi Sue
Another gorgeous card. I was very lucky to be given the Doodle Rose Wreath as a pressie from a friend but as yet it is unused. I am sure this card is the one you used in the launch as I remember loving it when I saw it x
Well another frustratingly boring day as my activity levels are still down in my boots. Looking on the bright side I am out of bed but that's about the full extent of my day, thank goodness for John on Hochanda. Loving the gilding polish x
So folks bear with me as I struggle to bring myself up to speed with your news, it is going to take a while. My brain cell is desperately trying to get into first gear but struggling x
Sending happy thoughts and lots of love to all especially my Blog Besties - you know who you are x
Crafty hugs
Take care

Beautiful card Sue. Think I remember this card from your new die launch.
Pam each day gets easier now, can use fingers of that hand to help out and aches, not really painful.
Thank you for your good wishes everyone.

Wendy good luck following your resignation. Some crafting time perhaps.
Tracey, enjoy your new crafty goods when you get time for them.
Guess you'll be home soon June.

Hello Sue,
