My papercraft and card making projects

thank you

This is my version of a Sue Wilson design
I wanted to use the new sentiment die so incorporated it instead of a stamped sentiment. It is larger than Sue's original but I think it kinda works.
I used milk and gold coloured card.
I have just treated myself to some of the Creative Expressions stick pin elements that Sue has introduced and made a coupe already so I hope to add them to some cards very soon!

thinking of you

This Sue Wilson design is using her new Classic Adorned Square Noble die.
The debossing on the frame is delicious.
The background has gilding flakes on it and I also used the gilding flakes for the sentiment using flake and glitter glue to stamp with.

you're wonderful

 Sue Wilson demonstrated how to make this card on one of her video blog posts.
The stamp used on the focal element is gorgeous.  I used the new latex blending sponges to shade it with ... highly recommended!!
I have just ordered some of Sue's newly released Stick Pin elements to make custom stick pins so can't wait to try out some of them soon!  I don't use them very often as I am slightly concerned of selling them in the charity shop, but thinking about it, if I use my hot glue gun to securely adhere them I am sure they will be fine!

wonderful day

This is one of those Sue Wilson designs that just sang out to me!
I love all the elements; the ivy, the edge, the colour
The recent release of new Creative Expressions embellishments is just stunning.  The pearl corners on this card are some of them.  I couldn't wait to get my hands on them!

I'm back with Best Wishes!

This is my version of a Sue Wilson design which she demonstrates as a video on Creative Expressions YouTube channel.
Ohh MYY!!  These new dies in Sue's collection are just incredible!!
This card uses both of her new weaving dies, which are such a clever idea and great fun to do.
There is also the new banner die for sentiments which is perfect, the swirls accent and the new camellia flower, all framed with the exceptional majestic square. 
I was so delighted to win one of Sue's draws and get one of the majestic die sets!!!
I want to thank Sue Wilson again for personally confirming to me that she is totally happy with me, or anyone, replicating her designs which she has also stated recently on her tv appearances.
Thank you Sue -- your support for me and my charity is just wonderful.  You have helped me raise £thousands with the sale of my cards in my chosen charity's shop.

taking a break

I might take a break from posting photos of my cards for a while, but I will continue to make them.

It has bothered me that comments have been left that I am making exact copies of Sue Wilson's cards and that it could 'infringe copyright'.

As I always make it clear in every post I publish, I  duplicate Sue's designs as they are so beautiful and I really enjoy the process of following instructions, but I am not good at designing myself.  I donate all of my cards to charity at a great personal expense, and over years Sue's designs have helped achieve a huge amount of income [£thousands] for my charity of which I am very grateful.

I do not understand why people have to comment in such negative ways.  I thought the point of the crafting community was to be encouraging and supportive.  personally I would never leave a negative comment to anyone -- I keep my thoughts to myself!

Service may be resumed when I've cooled down a bit lol!!
