Thanks

Good Sunday morning all!   I hope you enjoyed the latest Christmas die launch.  I thought I would give you a break from  Christmas cards, but I will warn you that I have a lot of them to share in the coming months!  Todays card started with a Glitter Kiss background.  I actually used two colours of Glitter Kiss across the background even though it just looks like a dark blue.  I used Vintage Violet and Antique Rose Glitter Kiss, which I applied randomly across the card and allowed to dry thoroughly.  I used the Scalloped End Rectangles to make a multi-layered frame.  I cut a wider white base and then cut a thinner frame out of the leftover Glitter Kiss card.  I added the two frames together with mounting foam then attached it to the centre of the card.  I cut one more of the Scalloped End Rectangles in white and then cut it in half lengthwise.  I tucked the two sides under the edges of the frame.  Next I cut the Daisy Cluster in white.  I cut the matching flowers out of the glittered card and glued them behind the daisies in the clusters.  I attached them to the sides of the frame with mounting foam.  I cut two of the smaller sizes of the Scalloped End Rectangles and matted them in the centre of the frame.  I cut a small oval frame using the Double Stitched Ovals, then added a white backing to it and attached it to the centre of the frame on the mats.  I cut the Thanks die out of the glittered card and glued it inside the oval frame.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4"  x  8 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, oh the glitter kiss background looks amazing, with the white frontage, I have the cluster dies as well so need to add this to my 'to do' list.

I don't mind seeing the Christmas samples, it gives us all so much inspiration.

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

Good Morning Sue. I love this one. I love everything about it. It's a classic Sue Wilson Card. And I think it will be recreated many times in lots of different colours and of course many different sentiments as it could be for any occasion. Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. I find this card so pleasing with it's simple colour scheme and yet there is so much detail in the design which shows just how much you can do with one set of dies. This is a real Sue Wilson spectacular.

Happy Sunday everyone, and what a beautiful card, yes it may just look like dark blue at a distance but you can see the hues of the others when you look closely, very fresh looking too.

Hi Sue and everyone, I dont mind seeing Christmas cards as I need the inspiration. I hardly made any due to time last year as so much was going on, so need to get cracking this year.
Todays card is however stunning. You can see the colours of glitterkiss better in the close ups. And I love it against the white layers. Anyone would love to receive this card.

Hugs Donna xx
