Dazzling Doily

Today's video card features a Couture Creations Doily die and shows the technique to accentuate your  background with gilding waxes for a beautiful sheen to your cards and projects.

I can now say that tomorrow (Friday) is the day that I can finally reveal some exciting news and,  not only that, there will be the biggest, most exciting, longest lasting reveal that I have ever done!  I have never done anything like this on my blog before!  How is that for a tease!!  I will give you the complete scoop tomorrow, but there is so much to tell!  I can't wait, so I hope you will be back bright and early to share in my news and take part in the fun that is about to begin!!!

Buy from Joanna Sheen

Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

QMG, Sue, can't imagine what you have to share tomorrow - last time there was a big surprise, it was the videos and that sure was a whopper one!
Great video again today, thank you, love to watch the various techniques and this card is so luxurious. Must get some gilding wax - never been too hot on 'effects' but think I may achieve this look.

'P' in Wales

Will come to party if invited, Cameeli. Norah, sent energy to the Ochils - did you get it? Hope everyone has a good day, including the two poorly four-paws friends.

Hi Sue,
Am loving the background on this card. Can't wait to watch the video later as I've never had much success with gilding wax - it always seems to hard and just stays on my finger and does want to come off on the card. I therefore end up with a thick layer on my finger that takes ages to pick/clean off and wax not on my card where I want it. Can't wait for tomorrow's reveal.

Sam Smithard said...

Hi Sue, it's going to be a very exhausting 24 hours waiting for the Grand Reveal, on Facebook, Creative Expression have placed a photograph with Lots of Cardboard Boxes saying Surprise Coming Soon!!! I wait in great anticipation!
Today's Video is Stunning as always, I Just Love the Card you have created for us, I just Love The Couture Creations Die, that you used for your aperture then replaced after Embossing, I'm a huge fan of The Waxes from Creative Expressions they are so smooth and a little goes a long way, I Loved The Sea Garden Embossing Folder that you Used just Stunning, and many thanks for sharing The Bow Tieing technique with us once more now having it on Video we can keep referring back to it, Just Love The Extremley Rich, Opulent, and Awesome Card Just so Beautiful.
Love and hugs from Sam x
Have a great day all !

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Such a beautiful beautiful gift today. The gilding wax is just magical and although I do not use it frequently I really do think it gives a fantastic affect - really must use it more often.
Of course I will be back tomorrow as usual so after your mamouth tease cannot wait to see the reveal.

Good morning Sue
Fabulous video with great hints and tips for us. The Couture Creations dies are so pretty. You are such a tease and glad we only have 24 hours to wait. Beverley W if you keep rubbing the wax it gets warmer and is easier to spread on the card. Cameeli I will keep my fingers crossed that you will win the lottery your party sounds amazing count me in. Steph I missed your banter yesterday hope your feeling a lot better today sending you a hug.

Lynne Mills said...

Hi Sue, simply stunning card. Can't wait for tomorrow. Lol lynne m x x x

If gilding wax is difficult to use heat it gently with a heat gun, makes it easier to spread.

Anne O said...

Hi Sue
What a beautiful card. I really love it!
So what can the news be? And does it relate to the boxes on creative expressions Facebook?
Tomorrow will tell!

Brenda Lello said...

Good morning Sue,
Beautiful card, love the video, the gilding wax looks stunning and adds a gorgeous effects of this card.

I rubbed gilding wax around the top of an old planter in my garden last summer, it gave a lovely effect and will only need a little touching up this year. And I still have plenty left in the same pot for my card making - it's really does go a long way - that's what I call value!
Sue and all blog friends have a great day.
Love Brenda xxx

Amazing card,will be good to watch the video later to help me with using the waxes.Looking forward to tomorrow!

Anne Crawford said...

Another Great Video! I really appreciate this card even more after watching the video, the doily aperture is so effective as is the waxed sea grass embossing, I too find using the wax quite difficult to spread , would heating it up a little bit before using help ( as putting it in the airing cupboard type of thing? ) Hope Steph is ok as I miss reading what she has been up to , sending Hugs to help xo

Sandy G said...

Hi Sue
Another fabulous card. I love the wax on top of black card. Looks very dramatic. Thank you for showing your bow tying technique. Looking forward to tomorrow's reveal!

Hi Sue and all Wilsonettes. Yesterday I just wanted to give all my poorly, upset, and down friends a big hug, I wanted to get on the floor and wrap my arms around the 4 paws that were not well, I just felt so upset for Cameeli who had worked so hard to reach her dream, for my friends that have an illness they didn't ask for, but as we do, carry on smiling ! I cried for the mommy's of 4 paws that were so worried, re-living my awful time recently. And it's another Thursday, a day I still struggle really bad with.
I love your dream Cameel, it would be mine too, talking of mega crafting, anyone off to the Hobbycraft show in Manchester ?
Sue, yesterday's cards were stunning, if only, I can dream : )
I look forward to watching the tutorial a little later. I make Mr L take a day out for a break and time to himself, but I dont do so well on my own, but it gives me the chance to let my emotions go in private, candles flickering, but no concentration to craft, so I sit and think of designs I can try with this very special blog in front of me.
I hope everyone is safe in this awful weather, although the sun is smiling down at present.
Sending wsrm hugs to Tina and gentle hugs to you lovely friends that hurt.
Love you.
Lancashire Steph xx

snowqueen62 said...

Hi Sue and everyone
Love the gilding wax technique. I really must get some!
Will watch the video later as off to work now.

Cameeli count me in! Sounds like my idea of heaven lol!
Sue can't wait for the big reveal tomorrow how exciting!!
Hugs Sue xx

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
Oh how i like todays card and although i don't have the beautiful creations die i have like the morrocan die set and it has a beautiful roundish sort of a die, so will try it with that instead. The cameo is so lovely but that's because i have always been old fashioned and but now my tastes are in fashion, WHOOPEE. I was just thinking before watching the video that if you used a dark green mirri card and distressed it, made it would take on the same sort of a look?
Cameeli flower if you have the giant lottery party when you win i would definitely come because what you have planned is my idea of pure heaven. Oh how it would be nice to meet so many like minded crafties like myself and no husbands allowed unless they are useful like Mr. Lancshire and don't moan. Although i don't think the swimming pool could accommodate beached whales like me but i could paddle, cos i can't swim. Hey i've tried over the last nearly 5 decades, but it's 3 strokes and bubbles still.
"P" in Wales i must have received the energy boost that you sent to me because today is definitely a much better day, so thank you for thinking of me and to everyone for their wishes. I am going to try and behave today and not over do it, but you know how it is, the minute you feel better you want to get on with all the things that you couldn't do when you are unable and then you just run yourself into the ground again, so i going to do little and often. I will succeed.
Yesterday my son brought me in a little chocolate heart for valentines day.... he really is the most thoughtful of youngsters and i am so lucky to have him.
My hills have totally disappeared on me today but it is not going to take my energy, they will come back. So here's to a lovely day even if it is foggy. Have a good day everyone and i so wonder what Mrs Tease Wilson has in store for us and why did we not know of goodies coming into HQ. Everyone, look at the day and it could be the worst of weathers(which i hope it's not) and think of one of the best days that you have had and relive that happiness and enjoy,
see you all tomorrow hopefully,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

What a tease you are, it all sound very exciting. Lovely card, but you know me I would use a smaller bow.
Will watch the video later.
Have a good day.

Good Morning Sue!
I have 4 Gilding waxes but can't use them 2 have shrunk, and 2 are so hard nothing comes off on your finger at all...they were like that from the start, I thought it was me!
I hope you are OK Sue ?
I will watch the Video later as it takes a while to read all the blog there is so much news from everyone lol!
Take care

Jess Watson said...

Morning Sue, what a tease you are! Cant't wait till tomorrow for the big reveal. Today's card is lovely, I love using guilding wax it makes embossing folders 'pop'. The party sounds great Cameeli, count me in! Take care everyone, Jess xx

alimecca said...

Hi Sue
Love this card although I haven't watched the video yet. Your Sea Garden folder is absolutely gorgeous. I use gilding wax quite a lot - have loads of colours, but do find it a hit and miss experience to use. Some of the colours are really crusty & hard and others much smoother. Hope everyone is coping with this horrible weather and not in too much distress. Sue can't wait to see what the surprise is tomorrow. Love Alison xx

Love Sheila xx

Sheila - Ginger said...

Morning Sue,
PS. I wes just thinking about the boxes and was wondering if maybe you have created your own design dies...well the boxes are under the 'D' section. Just a guess but that would be wonderful if you have done this.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Well another fab video today !! I so look forward to video day. Some great hints and tips. Thank you for the double bow demo. It is so helpful. I really love today's card !! It is just stunning Sue !! I have your sea garden background folder and I love it so much. I use it all the time. The patina gilding wax looks so great on black card !! I really need to get this colour wax. The doily die looks beautiful, really stunning. Another die to add to my wish list. Your own Lacey stamps look fab but it was difficult to see the white on white embossing on my screen today. I can imagine it looks very delicate and beautiful. As always your bow is great and I love all the embellishments.
I can't wait for your big reveal tomorrow !! I am so excited I don't know how you expect me to sleep tonight !! Thank you so much Sue for every thing you do for us all on your blog. Lots of love Tres x x x

To Steph, Norah, Lindsey, and everyone who is ill. I hope you all feel better soon. Living with long or short term ilness is very hard. I wish I could take a magic wand and wave away all the illness and difficult times people are experiencing. What is so good to know is that everyone here supports and helps one another.
Cameeli I am sorry you did not get your dream job. I am sure something better will come along for you.
I love your fantastic dream of the ultimate crafting hotel. If you win the lottery please count me in !! It sounds amazing !!
Lots of hugs and love to all the Willsonettes love Tres x x x

Afternoon Wilsonettes and a good morning to our Mrs W (who mudt be chuckling away at us when she reads this over morning coffee) you may well chuckle Sue Wilson, you tease ! I think its a box for each of us with a lable inside saying "gotcha" !! Noooo oue leader wouldn't do that to us - would she ?! : 0
I bet if she could, being the wonderful person her mom helped turn her into she'd send a full box to each.
So what if we have to wait, if we can wait 9mths, we can wait 21 1/2 hour's so there : )
Im totally stunned that I make a Sue bow (mo not Suebo) a sueBOW) although having dodgy stupid short uneven fingers I must admit it takes about 4.attempts with a few 'choice' words under my breath ! But I just persevere and get there - eventually !
I DO love using the piece of card with the apature as a base for the central focal point, and gals, if you change the colour, think of all the beautiful MD cards you can make, filling that apature with flowers etc see how useful your tutorials and blog is to us Sue - teases or NO tease we are all sure to return.
Oh Tina my love, can you not visit someone to keep warm ? A letter or call of complaint is needed chick.

Well if you've not watched the video yet you're in for a real treat again.
Sending love to you all.

A lovely card. The doily is certainly very pretty, but I think it's the gorgeous background that 'dazzles'. I'd never have guessed that the embossed design started off black! Love the cameo too.

Hello Sue, Thank you for another very intuitive video. I look forward to Tuesday's and Thursday's for them as I can look at and rewind ect plus I can look it up when I need to.

Hi Sue, a lovely project, the patina wax really brings out the embossing, seemed almost a shame to cover the centre of the doily with the decagon as the centre was so pretty. Now we have to wait for your news...........looking forward to the reveal, love from Jackie D

CraftyAnn said...

This design is stunning. I've just placed my order for some your new dies, they are stunning. I just had to have the flowers, leaves and one of the bow designs. Cannot wait for them to arrive. You are so talented and it's thanks to you sharing your talent that my card making has greatly improved. Many thanks.
Take care.

I think a certain website has let the cat out of the bag! But i'm saying nothing, just can't wait until tomorrow morning!! And a great card too. I can never get my wax to look as good as yours, it just all goes lumpy and looks naff! I'm sure i'll get the hang of it eventually. Love Sarah

Hi Sue

It's a real Bobby dazzler today, it's beautiful. The cameos are lovely, and as I have said in the past cards with bows and beads are the cards I really love. Like everyone else I am looking forward to the big reveal tomorrow. We will all be up early to have a look, can't wait.

Steph and Norah, I send you both love for your best wishes and thoughts for my Berkeley dog. Steph I did;nt mean to make you cry, and I now get why you don't like Thursday's, I really do understand how you feel as I lost two 4 paws just before Christmas. Ditto with the warm hugs back to you. It's a shame I live so far away as I would stand in for your lovely Mr L on his time out. Maybe we should just hope Cameeli wins the lottery and we will all meet at her big party. Would'nt that be the party of all parties. Hopefully Berkeley's results will be back tomorrow, and fingers crossed it's not Cushing's disease.

Kind regards :-)

Stunning card Sue. It's mesmerising watching you go through each stage. Love the effect that the gilding wax had on the Sea garden embossed background. I have the Octagonals so I can do that with one of the embossing folders that I have got. It's just beautiful and love the double messy bow...and the cameo....oooo! Hey ho not long to go to the wonderful surprise that you have hidden so well! I have no doubt that most of the family of bloggers will be setting the alarm quite early for tomorrow. Nearly 13 hours to go..... Hope you are fine Sue and everyone here too. Sounds like a great party Cameeli, let yourself go and everybody enjoy it too! Good luck to everybody too on the Wednesday Double card Giveaway! Roll on tomorrow! xx Love Karen xx

Hi Sue

I hope you don't mind me leaving this message. To the lady who's Grand Calibur had broken. Oysterstamps are offering a repair service for Calibur's, or they will send the part to you to fit. I don't know if this is helpful to you.

Kind Regards

HAD to check out Barbara's comment. I think its SO bad that both those sites have spoilt our fun. I can kind of understand CE blog letting the cat out of the bag for obvious reasons, but Docrafts - WHY !! Oh well, only half the suprise is out, I dare say THE BEST IS YET TO COME.
I feel hurt for you Sue.
Hugs and much love to all (hope you have a warm snug home now Tina) xxx

Hi Sue
Another stunning masterpiece you have shared with us Sue. I shall watch the video later, although I'm late today doing my blog round. Cameeli count me in as well, so hurry up and win the lottery and we can all have a wonderful time at your hotel. we can craft to our hearts content with our fabulous Sue Wilson. Norah, now don't you get doing to much, just because your feeling a bit better than usual. Steph you take it easy as well, candles seem my idea of heaven.

Hi Sue
Forgot to mention the big reveal. Thank goodness we haven't got to wait to long now. Hope I can get on the computer first thing tomorrow I do another stint at the primary school. I only usually do Mon Tues mornings helping the 4 and 5 year olds to practise learning how to read, but I'm doing an extra stint tomorrow to help out.

Myra said...

Hi Sue,
Hi Everyone,
Wow I'm late today! I like to watch the video before I comment and had no time earlier to do both! I love today's card - love the bow, the cameo the embossing folder and the gilding wax! I am no expert but I find it helpful to slightly warm the wax . I have sat it in a shallow dish of fairly hot water for a few minutes . Have also given it a very quick blast with a heat gun! Very quick though!
Hope this helps and doesn't cause more trouble than it's worth!
Steph , so glad you a bit better - was in fits about the Suebow!
Well I need to get to this blog much earlier tomorrow!
Love to all,

sharon said...

Good evening Sue
What a beautiful card - the patina wax and seagrass embossing folder really give it an aquatic feel. Combined with black and white today's card really is a stand-out stunner.

Hi all
MESSAGE FOR TINA (hope you don't mind Sue)
Tina I hope this helps our last corgi had Cushings disease and he was fine once they got him on the right level of medication. Our vet was fantastic with him, she kept a close eye on him and did regular tests until they got his medication at the right level which at first can be difficult. He had Cushings for well over 6 years, he was over 16 when we finally lost him. We just had to keep a close eye on him anything out of the norm we had him checked as they can be more likely to get urine infections. Hang on in there girl I'm thinking of you and the 'patient'
With love and hugs
Margaret corgi owner

Sandy H said...

The gilding wax on black, together with your gorgeous bow, gives this card a real luxury look. Glad to know I'm not the only one who finds some of the gilding waxes rather solid (while others kept in the same conditions are easy to use).

Eemeli said...

A total knock-out! Love the strong colors and that bow is fabulous.
