Split Label

Hi crafters!  As I was preparing the cards for my videos, I was hoping to bring to you a myriad of techniques and ideas.  The card in today's videos shows a way to easily change your simple label shapes into some new and interesting.  I hope you will give it a watch and let me know what you think.

Thanks for another great video, Sue,

Hi Sue
Lovely card today and fab technique to split the die shape. I would never have thought of that! Like the shadow effect too. Did you make a little blooper though? I never saw you use the label that you cut out of white! Still we can forgive you, I forget things all of the time! Saw what you did with this label on the original card.

Jackie T said...

Good morning Sue today's card is gorgeous I love what you have done with the labels. You must have spent recording all those videos for us. Have a great day and a safe journey when you return. Love Jackie

Jacquie Jacobs said...

Morning Sue,

This is stunning, love the technique had to look twice to as the black card/shadow made it look like the top was underneath the aperture and the bottom on the top!! If you get my meaning but I do love how you have split the label as you say.
Very pretty.

Love & Hugs

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
A truly beautiful and elegant card. LOVE the split label. And the tip about being thrifty with ribbon.
I'm not clear why you cut the white decorative squares out as they didn't feature in the card.
Hugs, Rose

Marianne's Craftroom said...

Very unusual, gorgeous and what a great sentiment

carol edwards said...

Hi Sue this is a stunning card, then most are you clever lady. Off to watch videox

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
You fooled me this morning - when I first saw today's gift I thought the centre piece was a cut out (negative) from the background and then I watched the video. Thank you so much for giving me a new technique and a wonderful gift.
Someone will definitely be getting a card with this technique as the focal point.
I love everything about today's gift so there is nothing more to be said.

Debbie Tinks said...

Nice card Sue X

Glenharon said...

Good morning Sue,
The background stamp that you used today is so beautiful and in the photographs it shows up really nicely. I wouldn't normally be a fan of red and white but with the black touches it makes it beautiful. I know you made it slightly different from the photographed card,but can you tell us did you cut the decorative labels 1 as triangles and just inserted or did you nip wee bits off? Just because i'm nosey.
See you tomorrow fingers crossed,
Love and crafty hugs

Micky French said...

WOW gorgeous what else can I say xxxx

Hi Sue, love today's card especially because its red along with the black and white, great tip for changing the look of the dies that background stamp is stunning. As with the others don't know what happened to the white square ? But beautiful card anyway.

No Lancashire steph as yet hope she's ok !!

Unknown said...

Hi Sue, just realised where the white square went , off set behind the centre focal element .

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW, WOW, WOW !! What an amazing card today !! I absolutely love it all !! An outstanding video again too !! Your colour combo is fab. I have the secret garden background stamp and it is a beautiful stamp. I love the white on white embossed background. I made a card cut into three sections a while back after I saw you do it in a demo. It is a great idea. I love the idea of splitting the label shape, and adding some of the secret garden stamp to one side with the border of pearls and the sentiment. This is such a great idea opening up a vast amount of new ideas and possibilities to all our label shapes !! A lovely idea of making a shadow in black for the label shape to. I can see from the photos that you put the decorative labels one under it all. It fits great and is another lovely idea. More great ideas for the bow with stick pins, a fancy pearl embelishment and swirly pearls. This really is an amazing card Sue !!!
Not long to go now until we get to see you on tv on Sunday. Have a safe journey home.
Happy crafting every one. Lots of love Tres x x x

Joanne K said...

Tina said...

Hi Sue

Beautiful card, love the white on white background. I did notice that on the demo card the labels 1 die was missing when finished, but when you look at the photo's of the card you can see what a pretty addition it makes and the focal point of the card is lovely.

Kind regards :-)

Love the colour combination to boot. Am off to watch the video. Safe journey. Looking forward to seeing you . (On the screen) Hugs. Jan. xx

Heather said...

Love the card - great idea with adding a different design on one half of the label and also the shadow technique. I, like others, noticed you fogort to add the decorative square behind but I think we can work that bit out for ourselves. Great card and thrilled to have another video to watch.

Kiraneries said...

Hi Sue, a stunning card. The split label is so different. Another new technique for me to try.

Myra said...

Hi Sue,
What a beautiful card. I loved the triptych idea and with the swirly pearls this made a beautiful backdrop. Such simple techniques - when you've shown us how!!! My mind too is off thinking of other ways to use / extend the dies I have. Great tip too about saving ribbon !
Learned to much today. Thank you! Isn't it funny how we all concentrate so hard we notice a little bit missed out! However I only remembered when I saw the close-up at the end!
Love Myra

A beautifully simple card today, but still stunning. Could be used for all different celebrations.

ssn.wht@gmail.com said...

I used the split label technique quite a lot this year as it's great for using up scraps of patterned paper, but I really love this card with the extra shadow and split triple background - so effective!
Thanks for sharing, and look forward to seeing your shows over the weekend. Susan

Julies Crafty Creations said...

This is brilliant Sue and such a nice way to use our existing dies, it gives them all a new lease of life
Thanks for the inspiration
Do you mind me asking what the card dimensions are as you normally write that on your posts but I couldn't find it anywhere on this one
Thanks Julie x

Sam Smithard said...

Hi Sue,
Well I think the lovely Tres has already said It
What another Awesome Card, I Love the Split Label technique. I love the Colours you have chosen for your Card White Red and a touch of Black. I love the White Embossed Background where you have done the Tone on Tone look once more, love how this has been split into three sections, and what can I say about that absolutely Stunning Flower Stamp and I so love how you have done it in the Red, thank you for the great tip re: the Ribbon, I loved the Sentiment, that's the great thing about yourself Sue whether your just writing your Column for your Blog or featuring in one of your Video's you explain every thing you do so well, so experienced and New Crafters can gain knowledge from your Blog, I also love to check out the small photographs of the relevant Card to get a clearer look at the fine details I may have missed in the Video love and hugs from Sam x

Chrisspi said...

Until I saw the video I really thought you had cut an aperture into the panels. The shadowing effect really gives it dimention.

Pat S Witney said...

Hi Sue
Another fantastic technique for us to try. Thanks for the inspiration. I was able to watch the video first for a change. Love the colours on this one as well. Have a safe journey back and see you on our screens soon.

Hi Sue,
Can't wait to watch the video - red and white is always a winning combination as far as I'm concerned.

Hi Sue, just watched the video, what a fab idea to do with the labels shapes. And what a fantastic card so pretty. Good way to use up bits of patterned paper you can't bear to part with.

Phew Im here, ran all the way before you locked up for the night ! (I wish, not ran since 2000 when arthritis paid me a visit, but I can dream : )
Had lots of joint injections today including both hands which equals rest and no use of injected joints until the steroid has partied round the 'hotspots' huh, when do I get to party ay ? (good job they dont inject my waffle spot or Id be stumped) to which I hear "if only !!!
Anyway, wont be beaten, or got the better of so its 'waffle time' sorry Sue and all bootiful Wilsonettes : ) I love this card, due to lack of A4 mangle I use embossed panels a lot on my cards, its my cheat so you cant see any joins on the base card, come next year I will save for an A4 mangle (inbetween saving for my mother of the bride gettup, and the newly weds honeymoon treats) good job my craft shop has a savings club : )
Well, you will be pleased Im cutting this short as stupid hands are somewhat sore now, (thank goodness I hear you sigh) so Im signing off sending love and hugs to Sue wishing you a safe journey home, and more love and hugs to all the lovely Wilsonettes. Have a restful evening, and good sleep, and see you all tomorrow (cant wait to see our Wednesday W.O.W.)

Love to all.
Lancashire (sore) Steph xxxx : )

Wacki Macky said...

Love this card today Sue, the white on white embossing is so effective I must give it a try. I've had a pot of white embossing powder for years so I have the ingredients all I need is the time!!

Craftihappiness to you all, love from Pearl

janet said...

I also love the colours of this card and the technique looks as if it will be interesting if I have some access left on my quota at the end of the month. watch the video. I wish I had unlimited download access, but sadly cannot watch many youtube presentations as they eat up my quota.
Might be able to work out how to do it from the pictures!
I miss the instructions or at least a list of ingredients.

magpie said...

Absolutely gorgeous Sue. The video is fantastic and it´s wonderful to watch you create these beautiful cards. I love this one! You make it so simple to do and the good thing is we can go over it again and again. Thank you so much Sue for the tips about the ribbon, the reminder about the panels and the black background that makes a shadow. Plus what a gorgeous background stamp that is! Stunning in the way that it gives a deboss look. Love the white on white embossing and just as lovely on the red card. Just an utterly and complete "wow!" factor. Take care Sue and thank you for your inspiration xx Love Karen xx
