Sam Smithard said...

Hi Sue,
As always Awesome Video that I will watch many times, I really love "The JustRite Floral Stamp Set" and it's great how you ruched the Ribbon either side of your stamped image, and those Fabulous Gilding Waxes they are brilliant on your project, I store mine in a A5 container when you open the lid they smell is divine if you like that sort of thing!!!
It shows up on your background so well, and like you mentioned just the touch of Antique Linen Distress Ink which is great as it's not to heavy around the edges of your stamped images once they've been through the Grand Calibur, "Fantastic Card" as always Sue thanks for sharing and the wonderful Video's I know it must take up a lot of your time when your home but they are so much appreciated!!!
love and hugs from Sam x
Cameeli I don't know you but Good Luck For The 23rd!!!

Morning Sue, Good Luck to Cameeli on 23rd.
I watched my recording of your Show on C&C, oh Sue I will never have any money haha, thank goodness for Flexipay, as I had to have both bundles.
I loved your video today, and your card is stunning, I really love the focal image stamp, and the ruching is so pretty, definitely an Art Deco feel.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Thank you for another great video, Sue, love the small details - subtle waxing on the background, colouring on the pyramage edges, lines on the black borders - all make it extra special. It's those touches that make your cards so unique.

Steph - had a laugh at your Nissan card with the dogs - sounds inspired!

Good morning Sue
I've just watched the video and as usual you've included some fabulous techniques. What I love about your videos is you make everything achievable for us. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule for us. I love the card and for me it's Art Deco, I must try more stamping because you've produced some amazing cards using stamps. Good luck for the 23rd Cameeli you must be so pleased to be short listed.

Hi Sue,
a beautiful card, must try that ruched ribbon technique.
Love the black and white with just a hint of gold...
Just lovely, brightening up an otherwise cold and grey morning.
Great video instructions.
Hugs, Rose

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
I have to agree that it definately has that art deco feel to it. I can see the garter homage and because of the colours it would not look out of place in that era. It's a lovely card Sue and the fact that the boys like it as well means that it one less we have to try and rack our brains at a mans' card, as they are notoriously difficult to make a card for.
Cameeli fingers are still crossed for you as it is wonderful that you have been shortlisted. All your Wilsonette friends have their fingers and everything that we can crossed in making your dream come true.
Well if i say my beloved hills have snow on them it will tell you what kind of weather Costa de Glenochil has today. Take care everyone and hopefully see you tomorrow.
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Marianna Hammer said...

Good morning :)
Why did I have this strange feeling that you had already shown us this video? Everything was very familiar. Weird feeling. Perhaps I have seen you make it on tv...
But I do love the card. And thank you so much for sharing this video with us. I absolutely love every single video, and I'm so grateful that you make them.
Love from the Faroes :)

Margaret said...

Good morning Sue
A really stunning card so elegant crisp and beautiful. I love the centre element set off so well by the ruching which gives the card texture, done with satin would give this card a real look of luxury. I simply love it.

Sue from Wiltshire said...

Lovely card and great video. I have tried the ribbon technique before but it didn't work well, think the red tape is the key and will have another go. That tape is a must have in the craft room. Thanks for sharing.

Good luck for the 23rd Cameeli hope all goes well

Hi Sue,
Hi fellow crafters.
Just watched the video and it is so interesting and informative. Love the black and white. Love the ribbon technique which I hadn't thought of doing with the seam binding! Will be giving that a try. Another masterpiece!

Was wondering what Maggie ( better without a bow ) will say today as we have two bows!

All the best for 23rd Carmeeli.

Love to all Myra

yorkielass said...

Hello Sue, Beautiful card, your close up pics really show the detail. I agree it does have an Art Deco feel, love the ruched ribbon and the faux pyramage.. I have the stamps and use them lots. Thank you for the wonderful videos Sue, they must take a lot of time out of your busy life and are soooo appreciated by us Wilsonettes.
Camelids good luck for the 23rd, I have everything crossed for you, sorry I spelt your name incorrectly yesterday, did not notice until too late.
Steph you are sooo funny,enjoyed the car story, glad you are back on form.
Have a great day everyone.

I'm off to watch the video now - loving the look of *most* of this card but you know my views on ribbons and bows ;) - the opposite to almost everyone else on here!

Hi Sue,
Don't know about a card for a man, but it would be perfect for my sister! lol
Really lovely, the ruching is just perfect.

Tres said...

Hi Sheila Lampard. I read you are from Chislehurst, Kent. I am from Orpington in Kent !! I did not realise anyone lived that close to me !! My hubby's family live in Chiselhurst. Hope you have a great crafty day Love Tres x x x

Tres said...

Hi Sue. What a fab video today !! Some very helpful tips and great techniques to. I love the pyramage style topper with that lovely flower stamp. I have your tapestry background folder and it is one of my absolute favourites. It is just perfect for a mans or womans card and it is such a lovely design. I use it all the time. I bought your sea garden background folder a little while ago and that I think that has also become one of my new favourites !! I think your colour combo is great. Black, milk and a touch of gold. The vintage labels 3 dies from Justrite are on my ever growing wish list. I like your ruched technique to with the ribbon. Another great idea to try.
Thank you for all your hard work to bring us all these new videos and stunning cards.
Have a great crafty day to Sue and everyone Lots of love Tres x x x

MRS DUCK said...

Good afternoon Sue and everyone
Sorry, I know I'll be in the minority but too much ruched ribbon for me. The rest of the card is lovely but the ruching doesn't do it for me, sorry.
Hope you have managed to see your daughter whilst you've been in California.
Best wishes.

hi Sue

Love today's card. I like the ruching but don't think I will put it on any of my cards. will look at the video later. Good luck for the 23rd Cameeli. Hope you are keeping well Steph as I can't see a comment from you today.

Maryann Laursen - Carmeeli hopes to get "the job of her dreams" and to be shortlisted means that she is one of the candidates to be selected for another (probably final) interview. We all wish her well.

Hello Mrs W. Hi there beautiful Wilsonettes. High 5 Cameeli Id like to cross my fingers but I cant, they are too short and dont work too good which is WHY I just have to try rouching that ribbon, if nothing else it will make me laugh just watching my stupid fingers trying to keep the ribbon AND and red liner tape in line ! Maybe I should make a comedy video of me attempting to rouche : )
I adore that stamp set and I treated myself to the Peacock Feathers guilding wax today. I also bought a pot of mica powder and its even prettier than everyone says - I just want to blooming well use it, and I will once I've got these 'crazy' driving test cards out the way ! Is it to much to ask to get back to making my 'usual' nice cards and use 'normal' craft goodies, and I HAVE HAVE to start the Valentine cards ready for the market/craft fair ! Mind you, a good night sleep is required as these weird cards are keeping me awake at night - If I see another Micra I may just cry : ) Or ask for therapy, I need proper craft therapy, the ONLY way to get that is to watch our Sue again and again and sooo much beauty to chose from, thank you Sue.
Im done.
Off for therapy.
Love you all.
