Gilded Gate Frame




Hi guys!  I thought I should show you the card that actually gave me all the leftover bits that I used on yesterday's card.  I decided that I wanted to use the Gilded Gate to provide a sort of fancy frame for the hearts.  I thought that the arched shape would be very pretty if I nipped out the actual gates and put two of the gates together like this.  I rather like it, and it definitely gives you more options for using your gate in other ways.  I ended up with four gates from this card and the four more from the demo that I prepped to do this card, so that is how yesterday's card came to be.  I used the Crazy Daisy embossing folder to emboss the white background for interest.  I attached my two gates then cut two of the Vines of Passion in red for the centre.  I matted that piece in red then cut a larger piece of white card to go around it.  I used the beaded swirl accent stamp and a clear perfect medium and stamped around the edge of the white card.  Using white powder, I heat embossed for a tone on tone look.  I finished the card with a double mat of white and Cosmic Shimmer white PVA dots all the way around the edge as accents.  I added a double bow tied out of frilly edges white ribbon, stick pins and a heart Dazzler for the centre.  I was contemplating doing the entire card in white and micro beading the two hearts.  That might have looked very pretty two, but you can definitely see other options so there is great versatility here.  Finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x 8" in size.   Do tune in for Julia's shows today and I will see you on Sunday!   All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue
You certainly show us how to get the full potential out of our dies. I love this heart die (well if I was honest I love all the dies lol) . Your demos were brilliant yesterday I particularly liked the gazebo card. I will definitely be watching Julia today.

Good morning Sue,
this card is just what the doctor ordered on this grey and drizzly day.
But then your blog is my daily treat and never disappoints.
Thanks again for sharing - you are simply THE BEST.

Debs Artliff said...

Morning Sue what a beautiful card i love it az i like white and red together. But i like how you show us how to use the left overs and not to throw then away. Ive set the recorder to record all of your shows as well as julias today. Looking forward to april the 9th. Take care Sue xxx

Rose in Chester said...

Oh, of course watched all your shows (apart from the first half of the second hour) and the time just flew by. You give such good advice - was MOST IMPRESSED by the tip that one can use the rectangle dies to make squares, too.
Have a great day.

CraftyAnn said...

Stunning card. So much enjoyed watching your shows, you put so much time and thought into your cards all the results are stunning. I'll soon be getting a 'square bottom' from sitting watching all the shows!
take care

Jean Deane said...

Morning Sue,
What a beautiful card you are so imaginative I would never have thought of using the gates like that, wish I had just a bit of your imagination!!! Love those red hearts so detailed have ordered both sets of dies (really naughty but did have some money saved towards them ,flexi pay so useful)
Have a nice rest today will be watching some of the shows but hubby painting so have to help (unfortunately) will catch as many as I can as I cannot record them here in France.

Hugs

Very ingenious use of the gate die, Sue, makes s great frame for the hearts. A super card.
Enjoyed the shows, wish more time for demos - fantastic sample cards as ever. What a lot of work for you and Julia, but we love them!! Thank you.
Can't get the sets, but really like some to buy singly (or singular as Leonie says!) Particularly gazebo, bonsai, window, gate. Oh - is lust a deadly sin? I see hell on the horizon.

Victoria said...

Loved your shows yesterday Sue, and this card today shows off the versatility of the dies again - and your cleverness too! I'm sure that they sell better when you and Julia ar on!

nuttinanni said...

What fantastic shows, watched them all and of course put in an order!
You really are amazing and so generous with your tips to inspire us. Could you do some card samples using the first set of Die-lites, bought them on the premiere but bit lost in ways of using them? Cheryl x

Debby Berry said...

Good morning Sue,
We drove to Wales yesterday and I was able to watch your shows on my iPad during the trip. What fun, hours of Sue Wilson. This card caught my eye on the show as well. Beautiful.... See you tomorrow in Wales...

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. Beautiful, so pretty and adaptable. I recorded yesterdays shows but haven't watched them yet. Sure there are lots of lovely things to go on my wish list. Hope you get a rest today. Take care.

Anonymous said...

GM Sue - saw and realy enjoyed all your shows yday. I wasn't keen on the 2012 D Lites for some reason but some of these new ones I thought were really nice - I went for the guilded gate, the filigree vase and the 2 sets of flowers - I also like the church window but decided to leave off that one for now anyway!

Must try guilding again - Like you I get v. messy - I did a workshop at a show to learn how to do it and ended up with it everywhere including in my hair and clothes - and the result wasnt very good either! but it wasn't using Cosmic Shimmer glue so perhaps that will be better and cleaner from what you said on TV yday! I do hope so - it put me off trying it again but I must.

Will be watching your shows again tomorrow.

Happy weekend

Maryann said...

What a gorgeous card here Sue. I actually had guessed it would have to be this already yesterday on the show, and I totally love both of them, and I love how nothing is getting wasted, as I think, that´s probably the mainreason for, why I at least has been a bit reluctant to cut too much in my diecuts before, but after watching several shows here the last weeks, you´ve given me sooo many great ideas, that I´m begnning to try lots more out too now, and is looking at my dies in a very different way now too. Thanks sooo much for that and thanks sooo much for all the fun shows too, it´s always soo much fun to watch them, when yu´re there.

Dawn Searle said...

Hi Sue
Fantastic shows yesterday and I succumbed and ordered Set 1 and the gilding waxes all of them!! Love this card today and I may have to order the gilded gate die as this was my favourite in Set 2. You are always so generous in how you demonstrate everything for us to enable us to make the same card if we want to. Can't wait for the shows with Julia and yourself.
Hugs Dawn S.

alimecca said...

Hi Sue
Love this card - how you think things up defeats me, but I'm so glad that you keep coming up with all of these wonderful ideas! The shows were really good yesterday and although I wasn't too keen on the original d litres, I think some of these look gorgeous especially the bonsai, vase,flowers,gazebo etc,etc! I thought the card you did with the bonsai in soft gold was so elegant! The new gilding wax looks very interesting too.

Oh I am so pleased you are putting your cards on Sue, as I bought Set 2 plus some other goodies, like wax, smooth glitter (couldn't resist that) anyway, I wanted to ask a favour, can you please put the heart one that is in black red and kraft card in an email please please, please....... I love it and want to see it close up, I need to make a card for my son for his partner as they have been together a year and he has asked me for a card for a fortnight's time and that one just spoke volumes to me and I thought, ooh I can make that, as black and red are his favourite colours! Hugs to you my friend and cannot wait to watch you again tomorrow, enjoying Julia's show at the minute, thanks again my friend, Hugs, Vick xxxx

morning Sue
First thank you for the two hour launch yesterday it was fantastic. I finally decided on set 2 after seeing yesterday's card and even more pleased seeing today's card that I chose that one.
Today's card is wonderful - full of inspiration and statement. I love the format and it just shouts for Red/White - I have a wedding anniversary coming up and their colour scheme was Red/White so my card format is solved. As a side comment I had just finished knitting a bag in these two colours yesterday!

Morning Sue,
I LOVE the mostly tone on tone with just enough red to pop everything out - WOW! Really enjoyed your shows yesterday and got to see most of each demo. I shouldn't still be amazed by your skills, but I always am. Brilliant. I did resist the urge to buy everything in sight (very painful) as I know I won't have time to get the most from them all. I've decided to wait until they go on general sale and 'cherry pick' the ones I really want. Back to Julia now. Have a great weekend.

"Wow, wow,wow!" Sue this is absolutely gorgeous. You know when a card takes your breath away? This one is it for me! This heart die is beautiful. It was great seeing you & your demo's & cards were fantastic! Hope you're managing to have a good rest today ready for tomorrow. xx Love Karen xx

Hi Sue. Two things; firstly, gorgeous card! Secondly thanks for showing the shaving foam technique a couple of weeks ago. I ran a 'Get Crafty for Comic Relief' party yesterday and used the foam as one of my demos - everyone loved it, lots of 'Ohhh''s for the big reveals. I had very few samples left at the end! We raised around £83! Happy crafting & thanks for the inspiration, Suz xx

Lovely card Sue. Ordered the guilding wax yesterday, and one of the glitter sets, money is a little tight this month due to the wet and cold weather, but will be adding the D-lites as soon as I can to my stash..!!! Shame you got cut off your last demo yesterday in the second hour!! Missed all todays but looking forward to seeing you tomorrow, while I sit and make a card. xxx

Malou said...

Gorgeous card. Love it.

jeffrey bubbles said...

The die you used is really good. Could you tell me if this is the same die that I got in the first set of di-lites? I know it was not available for a while. The card yesterday was really great as is this one also. I am not very imaginative with my dies but am learning to be with your help. Kathy xx

Sue Parish said...

You are so clever Sue. I love the gate die made into a frame on this card and the pillars from the same die looked fab with the arched window on another of my favourite cards from the shows. I'm going to have to have these two dies at least .....!
Sue xx

Marianna Hammer said...

What a gorgeous card.

Brenda Hanlon said...

Beautiful card Sue, just wish my funds would stretch to some new dies at the moment but sadly its not to be. It's great watching the demos but it's like being a kid in a candy store with no pocket money!!!! Still great to watch you though and get more inspiration for the dies I do have.

Hey would
you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm looking
to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time making a decision between
BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your
design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm
looking for
something unique. P.S Sorry
for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

Review my blog Please visit my site

Gorgeous card Sue, as always. Now you have taught us to look closer at each die, I can see that this one has many, many uses. I will be watching tomorrow, eager for more inspiration from you. Oh! if only I had a money tree in the garden!

Excellent website you have here but I was
wondering if you knew of any message boards that cover the
same topics discussed in this article? I'd really love to
be a part of group where I can get suggestions from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest. If you have any
suggestions, please let me know.
Cheers!

Hi Sue - gorgeous card and love all the detail. I was glued to the TV for all your shows yesterday which were fantastic (my email was read out too!!) I ordered both sets even though my last order hasn't arrived yet.... I've watched all Julia's shows today and I'll be ready with the 'buttons' tomorrow too. Take care.
