just for you

 
Sue Wilson has a video demo of this card on her blog
 
I havn't done gold and black for a while.  This effect is just black card with gilding wax over it.
The background is made using mica flakes.

just a note

 
Another of Sue Wilson's Spring releases
 
I used a dark pink card from my stash.
The embossed section was covered in a double sided sticky sheet before embossing and then diamond sprinkles added.
 
I wanted the sentiment to be prominent so I glued about 4 cut layers together for depth.

today's special moments

 
Another of Sue Wilson's new release previews.
 
I used the Camellia open petal die for the flowers and slightly crimped the petals for a different look.

wishing you a wonderful day

 
This is my version of another of Sue Wilson's recent previews.
 
The embossed background I have used Sue's new 'grouting' technique where the polar white texture paste is applied over the embossed card.  Lovely effect!
 
Another first for me is the felt flower embellishment!!  I never got on with felt before as it is very delicate and I always managed to squish the flower before it finished, but using Sue's new 'Foldover Flower' die it is easy peasy!!  I love them!

you're delightful

 
Another of Sue Wilson's previews using her new die releases.
 
I gave this lots of depth in the layers.

happy birthday

 
This is one of those Sue Wilson designs that just wow-ed me!! 
 I HAD to make this!!
 
Definitely one of my very favourites.
 
I may have over-inked the flowers a little but in real time it doesn't show as much as in this photo.

just a note

 
Sue Wilson showed us this design as an example using her latest die releases, so I made my version best as I could in white and soft gold.
 
I am already collecting these new dies too. 
 
 The sentiment 'just a note' is floating on a piece of acetate.
