Thinking Of You

 Hello crafters!  Here's another sweet card that I made using the dies from the recent May release.  I started with an aqua background.  I used the Double Stitched Rectangles to cut three small frames out of Ocean card and added them to the background with mounting foam.  Next, using the Elegant Arrangements, I cut three vases from teal card.  I cut the foliage from the die set out of two shades of green card, then added the flowers in custard, wisteria and soft salmon shades of card.  I added small pearls to the centres of the flowers as accents.  I arranged the flowers and foliage and tucked the ends under the vases in the three frames.  I used the Thinking Of You Shadowed sentiment cut out of teal and black card, then added to a white shadow and glued to the lower corner of the card.  I completed the card with white and teal mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x  9"  in size. 

Just a quick reminder that I will be doing the drawings for the winning dies from the May release and hopefully posting the list later this afternoon.  Don't forget to check back then!  All for now. Sue x

Hi Sue it was so lovely to see you yesterday you looked so well and happy even radiant.
I really loved the latest launch with all your new floral dies and vases etc I can honestly say I'm selfishly keeping my fingers crossed - sorry. Its going to be wonderful to see your new inspiration that incorporate dies from your May launch I know I said this last week but it really was my favourite for a long time, dies i know I'd use rather than 'just collect' anyway today's sample is lovely really lovely and I'm sending good luck wishes to our Particraft family. Fingers crossed, have a lovely day and see you later xxx

Hello Sue snd all
The teal and ocean are so pretty together snd really show off these beautiful dies - not that they need much showing off - they are, I think, the best of some great releases.

Good Morning Sue and all Wilsonetts.
A beautiful card Sue. Everything about it is elegant and it looks quite versatile
I would love to have seen you last evening, but as I don't have a TV I didn't. I did see my 7 week old Great Grandchild for only the second time and she is of course gorgeous.
Have a good day.
Love to all.
Marie P.

Beautiful card Sue. These vases and floral arrangements would also look amazing on a DL or slimline card xx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, oh wat a charming creation today, love the rectangles and the beautiful vase and flowers, this type of card is ideal for so many occasions, just by adding a different sentiment whether it be a die as you have done or even a stamp sentiment, one for batch making I am thinking. Thank you for the inspiration Sue xx.

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

Hi Sue

This really is such a sweet card. I love it. The colours are gorgeous. I, like many others I also watched you on TV on Jamie’s show and I agree you looked so well and radiant. It really shines through how passionate you are about what you have designed and how much enjoyment you get from it. It is contagious and makes us all want to try too.

Love Helen xxx

zoemo said...

Love this, it’s like looking in through someone’s windows and seeing their beautiful flower arrangements on display! I have quite a few sets from the finishing touches collection so my mind is now working overtime as to creating something on a larger scale with maybe a clear dome for the vase......

What a great card to give to someone whose in hospital as they cannot receive real flowers. The demonstration yesterday evening on C&C was very informative and it's a shame the wall of art didn't work! WakeyL

Hi Sue, a really lovely card and I knew you would come up with some amazing designs for the Elegant Arrangements, so much variety within the dies. It was lovely to see you last night on the TV, you looked so relaxed and happy. Great demo as always of a lovely card.

Good luck to all Wilsonettes for the draw later on.

A really sweet card, it looks amazing.

Sandra said...

This card is beautiful! I love that you have the flowers that are so popular right now but they are flat for easier mailing. Using vases gives the opportunity to create flowers of all types and colors. Repeating the flowers and vases adds even more colors and texture. This card can be used for so many different occasions but Thinking of You is a definite favorite of mine.
