All About The Teal

Morning craft friends!  Ah teal and black, what a nice combo, huh?  I really like this card, so simple yet so striking, I think.  From your comments on previous cards, I gather that the verdict is still out for many of you on the Cut, Fold, Tuck dies.  Hopefully this one will sway you towards the positive.  I cut about a four inch strip of teal card and embossed it with the Elegance Embossibility folder.  I used Black Distress ink to highlight the pattern and tone the colour. I added a black mat for contrast.   The Samantha Walker Nautical Frames and Accent die set provided the curly accent border.  I stamped my sentiment in the lower corner and very lightly inked the edges with more Black Soot.  I added a piece of black silky crush ribbon to the left side of my card and taped the ends to the back.  I tied a double bow and added it with a glue dot.  I topped the bow with a fancy black button (from my stash) and two decorative stick pins.  The focal element is simply the Floral Burst Cut, Fold, Tuck die cut from double sided Coordinations card that is black on one side and teal on the other.  This type card is perfect for these dies as you see both contrasting sides when you use it.  I cut it with the black side to the front and folded all my pieces so the teal sections were showing. I glued the very centre pieces so they stayed down and added a black pearl to the centre to finish it off.    Piercing the back mat layer finished it off nicely.  Obviously you could do this card in any colour and it would work, but the teal is the one that works best as far as I am concerned!  Loving the teal!  All for now, Sue x

auscrafts said...

A lovely card today Sue. I like these dies I have a lot of the original Lace hand cutting dies but never use them now because of the cutting involved .These are slowly being replaced with the spellbinder dies

scottish crafter said...

Yes Sue teal works for me. I am coming round to the dies as I was one of those not too sure. The colour, embossing and of course big bow sets this off.

Loving today's card Sue - I really like teal. I haven't tried these dies out yet but I think I will have to give them a go. This design would be great for any occasion including the guys. Pat x

Karen said...

Made a card for my friends birthday with these dies and it looked great if I say so myself. Love your card - I am a bit scared of the black soot ink if I am honest - I am a little heavy handed!

lestim said...

Hi Sue, I have four out of the five CTF dies, I don't know why I don' t have the fifth one, I think maybe it was in a bundle with other dies that I already have, anyway I love them and I'm hoping that there will be a couple of border CFT dies in the new issues. I love the colour combo of black and teal it always makes for such a dramatic card. Best wishes Lesley x

Ria said...

Hi Sue
I love this card the colour combo works really well. I do have to admit that I am still on the fence with these dies, I love what you do with them but they just don't shout out "put me in your collection".

I don't know why the jury is out on the CFT dies, they are gorgeous but then I did do lace work for a while years ago so I suppose I was pre-disposed to love them. Again stunning colour scheme and truly beautiful card.

A card with positive style and no mistake. I never liked teal and used to steer away from it but thanks to you that is no more.

That is lovely and colours are fabulous. Clever to use double-sided card like that so you have both colours showing on the cut, fold tuck die.

Hi Sue. I just love the teal colour!! It is another wonderful shade of green that I really love. The cft dies are lovely but I am still in love with my Moroccan dies at present. I have ordered the floral ovals and cant wait for them to arrive. I think they are so pretty and elegant. Your card as ever is gorgeous and love the bow too!! I never use black to make my cards but I have seen so many of your wonderful cards using that colour that I am starting to change my mind!! Love Tres x x x

Pauline99 said...

I bought these in the last big pick of the week/ day what ever it was I can't keep up. But as usual not used them yet what with card orders and illness I've not had time but seeing this card I think I will try this one it's lovely.
Teal is my fav at the moment and again I don't get the chance to use it with the kind of cards I've been doing, mostly wedding christening communion etc.
Mother in laws birthday card to do this week so can see this being used for that.
Well can't wait to see some hints for the shows I'm holding my breath waiting so you need to hurry up.lol
I bet my recent card making money is on the way out with the order for those dies.

Samples plessssssssssseeeeeeeeee.

HiggiSue said...

Lovely card, although CFT dies still not doing it for me. might use this with persian motif instead . thanks for inspiring me... but can you create me some more time to craft. lol!

lilygee said...

I bought a couple of these dies, cut them, admired them and put them away - not sure why they didn't grab me but the notion went through my mind that they were kind of outdated looking but your card looks great Sue, especially in those colours. I think we are so spoilt for choice with the spellbinders dies (particularly within the collections) and some of the dies just take back seat until someone comes up with new ideas on how to use them. I cut them in half at one point and thought they looked quite nice layered as halves and placed at the top and bottom of different labels. I'm sure there are loads of great ways to use them.

Cornish Emma said...

A lovely card again Sue, just love the teal you use. For those who aren't into the cut, fold, tuck dies they are great for men due to the fact that the engineering of them interests them, obviously do a more masculine scheme. Ive put them on cards for several men from rugby players to a soldier and had great comments back.

Tracey Harrison said...

Teal! My favourite colour! Although hard to source! Xx

Meg said...

Hi Sue,
I'm glad there are dies for cutting out the fold and tuck toppers as I used to cut them by hand(ugh)

steve.rawles said...

I think this is stunning - the strong colours do show off the cut fold and tuck die to great effect. I do find that photos don't do these dies justice as it flattens and you lose the great 3D effect you have when you see the motif in real life.

Thank you for sharing your inspirational work is always appreciated,

Steve

Barbara said...

Beautiful colour scheme but still do not like those dies!!! They just seem quite old fashioned to me and dont compare to all the lovely floral dies that Spellbinders make. Each to their own it would be boring if we all liked the same thing. Looking forward to your next show, you have really been missed.

Granny Ado said...

Fab Card. Love the colour combo

Linda (Lindyloo) said...

Oh lord Sue, I think I am really losing my eye sight. I adore everything about this stunning card, colour, layout, design elements etc.... but to me it looks like aqua blue and black. Ah well, I would love both colour combos and the card itself is AMAZING, so who cares what my silly eyes see!!
I adore the cut, fold and tuck dies, just won't be buying them as I really am trying to save for some Grand dies and hopefully your newest creations!!
Thank you again Sue for all the fabulous inspiration.
Love and best wishes Linda xx

Lucy said...

Yay!!! Teal (goes with anything, I think)!! Love it with the black and, of course, the black ribbon and bow make it perfect. I think I'd like the Cut/Fold/Tuck dies, but they're not in the crafting budget right now. I do enjoy watching what you do with them, though.

Stunning Super Singer, I love the teal and black, the big bow, I love the whole design. I love what you have done with the tuck die, Im not really a fan of them though, I think its because they are a bit manly and I love all the girly pretty things, when I clone this one I will probably use a persian or morrocan motif in its place. thank you as always Helen O xxx

Hi Sue,
I forgot to congratulate the winners yesterday!
Love the teal and black and the layout of this card - I don't have the dies you used but can imagine alternatives in their place.
Looking forward to Thursday! Have a safe journey,
Sue x

An absolutely stunning card, this colour combination works every time, but the card would look good in other colours too. You are so clever Sue!

Victoria said...

Fantastic card. Love the colors, but even better is the technique you used. Great job!

I can't believe that the verdict is still out on the cut fold & tuck dies. They are gorgeous. I have a Silhouette Cameo, so did not feel the need to buy a Grand Calibur or any Spellbinders. These dies changed my mind. I bought the machine and these dies the same day I saw them. Now, of course, I have an ever growing stash of Spellbinders and my poor cameo is feeling a bit neglected.
