New Sue...

Happy Thursday,

I promised my first sample made with the stunning new collection of dies from Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions and for the first I had to use, of course the Opulent Octagons die.  I do have a bit of a soft spot for the striplet collection i just love the design and the flexibility and this collection has 2 amazingly designed options!

This is one of the cards the ladies and I will be making in my workshop in Darlington on Sunday so I don't want to spoil it by giving detailed instructions as that wouldn't be fair.  Simply to say I cut the triplet 4 times and mounted it onto acetate to give this window frame look.



For the centre I used the new Orange blossom flowers and leaves ( there are of course stamps to match more of those tomorrow) but for this card I thought the complexity of the die cuts deserved just the flower made up in white and set with the matching foliage.

more tomorrow,

Enjoy...

  3. Oh John good morning, I do like this card, I also bought the striplet and blossom dies so with your permission I might have a play at something similar, as you know I cannot get to the workshops so I will be sitting in my little craft room later today and scratching my head trying to work it out from the photo, but I WILL do it I promise you.

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

  13. Hi John. This is a gorgeous card, I love the striplet, I think it is my favourite die from this new collection to be honest : ) . Yesterdays Christmas card was beautiful, the poinsettias look lovely and that background die is another winner. Tuesdays card was another beauty, great colour combo and such a pretty die in the middle.
    Have a good day. Take care x
