with love

A lovely Sue Wilson design today with a touch of spring green!
I made the stick pins with Sue's new Elements, and the ribbon I coloured using two green Spectrum Noir alcohol pens with some blending ink.
It is Ally Pally show this weekend -- I've got physio for my old man knew on Friday then a week holiday so I hope to get there on Saturday!! YAAY!

just because

Sue Wilson domo'ed this card on her recent tv shows.
The stamp for this frame is quite hard to get hold of - very popular - but now I have mine to make a few cards.
The new satin ribbons are lovely.  A hint when flattening it out -- don't iron them under a sheet of paper -- it will stick lol!!
Hopefully I will get to Ally Pally this Saturday!!!!!

birthday wishes

My version of Sue Wilson's card using her new corner dies
I tinted some pearlescent card from my stash with Adirondack aqua ink for the layer under the sentiment and used the same card as a final mat.
The flowers are vellum tinted with the same ink, as is the [white] ribbon.
I made the stickpins with Sue's new elements plus some of my own, snipping off the fixed pearl on the head.

best wishes

Another of Sue Wilson's designs showcasing the gorgeous new Greek Island Background die, embellished with the ivy Finishing Touches.
On my version I have used the Cornflower as an embellishment and there is a layer with diamond sprinkles under the trellis of the die.

friend like a rainbow

I had fun working out how to replicate this Sue Wilson design!
It is one that she blogged to showcase her new Square Frame die.
I used the new lilac card I bought with some of the pumice coloured card as a variation to white/milk.  It is like a very muted, palest of grey.
Luckily I also had the stamp sentiment.

Periwinkle blue and white card for this Sue Wilson design
My first attempt at this kind of ribbon bow using the new satin ribbon from creative expressions.

thanks for everything

This Sue Wilson design card is again using the 'bed of roses' embossing folder.
I used lilac and white card.
The flower is made from the camellia and the classic rose dies, scrunched up and tipped with shaded lilac ink.
[I have a new pack of card I bought labelled 'lilac' also but it is a different, more pinkish, shade.  It is a nice colour nonetheless.  I will use it soon]
