Angle Approach

 Good morning blog friends!  Day two of the POTW shows for me.  It's an early start this morning so this post should be popping up just as I am leaving the house heading for the studio.  I have decided to show one of the cut, fold, tuck samples that I made today.  I love these colours and, although I grabbed a sentiment from one of the sets on the show, you could easily go in any direction with this one.  It's masculine, but feminine too I think.  You decide.  First off I covered my background with the sticky adhesive sheet.  I used the Angle Approach die to cut an aperture in it.  I peeled off my backing paper and poured clear micro beads over it.  I just love the look of these and it is difficult to get the real feel for these in the photos, you just have to try them!  With the positive piece, I beaded it too, but I folded it backwards so that just a sliver of the decorative paper with the beading showed.  I mounted it below my background piece and offset it so the shape did not fit back in the hole the way it came out.  I cut another smaller one of the cut, fold tuck dies to go on top and still a smaller one to go on top of that.  So I layered up three of them in different sizes and shapes to create my focal element.   I used another decorative backing paper for the bottom of the card.  I stamped a few of the stamps from the Design Element set using a clear perfect medium and clear embossed them.  Again, it doesn't show up too well in the picture, but it adds just a nice texture to the piece.  I used some teal vintage ribbon and made a messy bow and added a fancy button and crystal pins.  I used a few pieces of the black rhinestone swirls above and below my focal element.  I finished the card with Cosmic Shimmer black PVA glue dots around the edge to frame it and add accents.  All for now, Sue x

This is a very strong looking card and I like it. it would make a great male card as you say or for a female that does not like "frillies". I watched your shows yesterday and managed to get the micro beads and pearl glues as well as the Floral Oval dies. Good luck with the rest of your shows, the stock is selling out fast

Patricia said...

Hi Sue,
good morning to you and everyone. I love this card, the papers are wonderful and the colours are really great. Really enjoyed your shows yesterday. Those dies are amazing. Wish I had enough pennies to buy, but still paying for the last lot. Have a great crafty day everyone.
It's an ideal day to craft as the weather is so nasty.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Congratulations once again on the POTW shows yesterday, thank goodness for Sky+. You never seem to run out of original ideas, thankss for all your inspiration. I love todays pattern papers and the use of the micro beads.

Hope today goes well and you are not too exhausted at the end of it.

lestim said...

Good morning Sue,, I am so happy that C T &F are the POW, I have been watching these dies for a little while but. Not really sure, now I am. Fantastic job on C&C but I wish they would shut up and let you do the demoing maybe you could do a Classroom like Barbara Grey I'm sure they would have a regular sell out at prices we can all afford rather than the hundreds needed for POTW, just my opinion. It was lovely to hear your Mom on her birthday, I hope she had a great day. Best wishes, Lesley x

Macca said...

Morning sue
Love, love, love the dies, just can't afford them all at mo. But I did get the mica flakes.
This card is beautiful and the colours just pop.
I'm feeling abit sad, as my other half has decided to get rid of sky and go with virgin. (no create and craft on it) will have to watch on computer from tuesday ..........boo!
Have a great day and a great week. Xxx

Jan said...

Morning Sue, I really think these dies have many possibilities, however this time I went for the floral ovela, nautical and the fantasy jewels !! I still haven't played with all last months!!

Great shows with a stack of inspiration, which is very much appreciated! X

Karen said...

Ooh I am so excited as I ordered this die yesterday so will be able to have a go at this lovely card soon. Is there an art to cutting through the double sided sticky, as I have been struggling to use my micro beads because of that and I really want to see them in action?
Thanks
Loved the shows yesterday, ready to tune in again now. Karen xxx

Val Spain xxx said...

Good Morning Sue. Wonderful card in my favourite colour teal. Really enjoyed the shows yesterday. Got the micro beads and pearl glue and the mirror card. Would have loved the big bundle of dies but can't get instalments out here in Spain so will have to buy them set by set. Looking forward to the remaining shows.

Hi Sue gorgeous card as ever, very suitable for male or female, Sheila. x

Heather said...

Good morning Sue I managed to see the launch of the POTW before leaving for a weekend away. Managed to resist buying for 5 minutes lol I couldn't afford to go for the POTW but bought the cut and fold set. I love doing Lace and have all the cutting stencils but it is time consuming and these dies make it so easy and giving you the same effect. I love everything about today's card thanks for sharing.
Hugs x

Hi Sue, just finnished watching this mornings show demonstrating this card, just love the way micro beads make such a difference. You are right t.v. does not do justice to how beautiful these look especially on white card.

Lydia Jordan said...

Morning Sue,
What a nice surprise to hear speak to your Mum. Great shows yesterday looking forward to more today.
I can't afford theses big bundles that are on C&C they are just too much. Will look out on other sites for individual packs.

Lovely card but would like it more in softer colours.
Have a good day.

Cinders said...

Good morning Sue,
Love this card, just watched you making it on C&C. Love the colours and design of the papers. Looking forward to more demos, just hope that we're not at the walk in centre too long as my youngest has some kind of bite or sting on his wrist that needs looking at and treated (Had to wait for them to get back to me from last night)
Have a great day

Vicki Sharkey said...

Great shows as usual Sue, love the items and your cards are amazing. I just love to see you crafting!
This is another great card, just seen you making it on air. Will have to get some of these dies. I wasn't sure about them but now I have seen your finished cards they are great. I used to be one of those who cut these by hand - it did take ages but the effect was fantastic.
Vicki :)
off to craft now, may get chance to send a photo in.

Lara B said...

Hi Sue,

Just watched you demonstrating this card. Like somne others I'm not sure about these cut and fold dies but with the micro beads on your background paper and on the "spinner" it certainly makes a striking card.

Hi Sue - love the colour combo on this card, everyone says M or F and they're right. Love what I saw yesterday and am hoping some of the samples will appear in detail on here.

Hi Sue - just love today's card - I watched POW yesterday lunchtime and bought the floral tags and baudle blossom with ribbons and pins and could have bought more and more but bank manager would not have approved!!!! I have never tried the cut fold etc so am waiting impatiently for my set to arrive so I can play and play - good luck for the rest of the week and I shall be glued to the TV - xx

Hi Sue,
What a great mix of dies on the POTW, as always, your samples are out of this crafty world. There has been some stunning ones, I like it now you pick one to demo that is not in the pile, so more interest to keep us watching, keep them coming. Today's post is lovely, love the colour combo.

This is lovely Sue - and would be such a good card for a man! Not sure about the sentiment for a man though - I am joking!!!! I love the backing paper and must have a go at using the microbeads on a paper some time. These colours are beautiful (as usual) and I really admire your creativity.

What unusual colours in this card but they go so well. I agree it is both masculine and feminine. I thought I wasn't keen on these new cut and fold dies but on seeing a close up I've changed my mind. These are another candidate for my NEED list.
So many needs and not enough money! Sigh! LOL ;0)

gwen70 said...

another super card Sue, loved the shows yesterday, and can't wait to see all of todays

magpie said...

Hi Sue, I do so love this card, everything works so well & these colours work so beautifully together.I love the colour teal & as it goes so nice with the tan colour I bet it would look stunning next to a metallic bronze!Ooooo!I love the dies on c&c,the floral ovals, the flowers & the micro beads which are so effective. The gold & cream card that you made using them yesterday was absolutely stunning!Love watching you create these beautiful cards & thank you for sharing with us such creative inspiration & confidence that we can do the same. love karen x

carolscards said...

Hi Sue, The cards you make are beautiful. It is very interesting to see how you build up the cards and use all the different folders and dies together. Many of your cards have lovely flowers and ribbons and pins on them. Could I ask how do you suggest delivering these cards, will they go in an envelope or do they need a box or something. Thanks

Love the card, Sue. Colours are really suitable for both male and female. Great stuff.

jordiegirl said...

Great card Sue - can't afford the POW this time though.

I already have a few cut, fold, tuck dies which I received with my Double-Do XL machine I use for die cutting and embossing but as yet have not made a lot of use of them - although I did use the heart one recently on a wedding card which I still have to put on my blog, will email you a copy when I have time.

Hi Sue, love the colours in the papers used in this card, the dies are lovely too. A really beautiful card. Loved the shows too. Anne x

Male or female? Probably both, but since men are so difficult (at least I think so)I would probably opt for male.

Hi Sue,
I don't know if I am getting boring or I just like certain song! Today, all I can sing is a song that struck a chord with me before while perusing your daily creations.
'Like a circle in a spiral,
Like a wheel within a wheel.
Never ending or beginning,
On an ever spinning wheel......
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind'
I think the reason it popped into my head again was because I was thinking about the Tuck & Fold die. You can never tell where the person ended or began with the folding. Then, of course, the circles and windmills just started spinning around on the card and in my mind!! Oh boy I tell you, one strange cookie in this head of mine!....LOL!!
A truly unusual card and colour scheme, but it works and is a refreshing change. If you saw my blog recently you will notice I had a yearning for Teal so I had to make a bookmark in Teal and white to get me through until my next fix of the 'Sue Wilson Teal'!!
I have really been enjoying the shows and thank you so much for showing some of my pins too, how generous you are. It's funny but I look at the older ones I made and they seem so small now compared to the newer ones (but I still like them).
I have been reading the comments by the blogfriends here and agree with Iestim and Mabe, any chance for a Classroom with Sue or something similar?
Well I hope you have a wonderful weekend dear friend; don't let them work you too hard.
Big Hugs Linda xx

janw said...

Amazing to be able to do a card with such feminine elements and yet make it so suitable for a man. WOW

Dawn Louise said...

Another brilliant card, I love it all. versatility at its best. love micro beads, had a play made a tassel out of satin ribbon, used ranger matt medium on the ends and bits of lengths and dipped them in. when dry it looks like ice and makes a lovely rattling noise. x hugs

Hi Sue,

Have been too busy to catch your POTW shows (so far) but have 'reserved' some time tomorrow!
Brilliant card today. Must admit I had to put on my extra-strength specs to make out that the background was actually micro beads! They're so fine it looks just like decorative paper. I'm VERY new to Spellbinders having only recently bought my GC - your amazing demos clinched it for me.

HI Sue just writing this quickly as you are on C&C in a min. Wonderful cards and loving your demos. Keep them coming hugs Joan xxx

Sonia said...

Hugs,

I was the lucky person who won your card yesterday thank you for your wonderful Demo's. I wondered if there could be a vintage car die set. I know there is one ford one out there but wouldn't it be great if we had a whole set even buses and tractors this would sell. We don't have enough for mens cards.

The die cuts are beautiful, but the really "wow factor" for me was the DP and teal ribbon!! ;-) They are gorgeous and anything would look good with them. The card is amazingly detailed and would be welcomed by either a male or female, I think. Nice, nice, nice!

Barbara said...

I have never been keen on these dies, not my cup of tea but you make them look so beautiful on your cards!!! Enjoying all your shows and fab demos.

Nikbee said...

Lovely colours Sue. Enjoyed the shows, a real pick me up, as been nursing a cough / cold all week after returning from Hols, warm weather to all this rain and cold took it's toll!
Agree with Lindyloo & Lestim don't see enough of your demos, we need you to have more classroom time! Bet you're thinking gosh you work hard enough as it is, how can you fit any more hours in a day? It's just we all love your demos, and need the Sue Wilson Card/demo fix! Take care Alison :)

This card would be a great male card, it really amazes me how the micro beads make the paper or card look so much more expensive.
I am loving all of your TV shows,
