Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. Wonderful card.I love the woven background, and the paper you have used. The black frame is gorgeous too. My gorgeous Wednesday Winners card turned up yesterday, and it's true Wilsonettes, it really is more beautiful "in the flesh" : ) Take care.

Good morning Sue
I love this technique thanks for sharing. Although I like the black with Kraft card the blue is my favourite. The tip with the frame is brilliant and the embossing gives it a professional look. When I first bought the twisted metal dies I wasn't quite sure how to use them but you have given us some great ideas. At last I've been able to leave a comment on your video lol

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,

Beautiful cards - I like them both but prefer the one in black. But would also try this with a postbox-red or dark emerald green. Thank you for showing us so clearly, beautiful background and frames, must give this a go.
You really are inspirational.
Hugs, Rose
PS After months and months of dithering, I finally bought metal tags & accents and don't regret it at all - I use it a lot, it looks so elegant.

Hugs, Rose

Great card (with a different sentiment) for men. Very clean and unfussy. hugs Cheryl xxx

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
I love the colour scheme on both cards and agree today's gift is just perfect for the males in our lives.
The focal die was one of the very first I bought when I started crafting with the Grand Caliber and it is always beautiful to use.
The format of today's gift is fantastic - the basket weave and then the basket background looks superb. Will definitely be having a go at today's format.
See you tomorrow.

Enjoyed the video, Sue, thanks! A great card with the weaved (woven?) background, always like kraft and black together. Glad to see you are still demoing Spellbinders - did wonder if you would after your new dies came out but, of course, still looking forward to seeing YOUR dies on show!!

Hi Sue. Great card! Loved the lattice effect. Love Nicola x

Pat S Witney said...

Hi Sue
Today's card is very striking. Like the other comments, I to think it would be good for male cards. Although anyone would be pleased to see your card. Love the lattice on the card, and the detail on the frame. I will be watching the video later to see how this is done. Hope Norah and Steph are keeping well today.

Denise Hancock said...

Hi Sue love the lattice technique. Although I prefer the black background you have shown us the different colour ways. Got your lattice leaf dies this week so all my creations have them on. I love it!

Morning Wilsonettes. Will be back later, but for those friends that know of Tina and Berkely, and not re-read any posts from yesterday, it's sad news. Berkely fell asleep at home yesterday afternoon. Tina was all alone so we sobbed and broke our hearts together over the phone. Thinking of you so much today Tina and family. Its such a very sad time. Thank you Sue for allowing me to keep our family informed here.
Will watch your lovely tutorial a little later.
Hugs to all.

Hi Sue,
Love the woven, basket weave in the background. Will have to watch the video later on to see exactly how you did this. Unfortunately, I have to make a sympathy card today - never easy. Love to everyone. Alison xx

marg said...

Good Morning Sue!
I will watch the video and know that I will love the card.... as they look so much better there and I will love your techniques. My Calibur has been away for 2 weeks at the mender so when it retuurns I will be able to make this card. Do you think that your older folders will ever be back in stock Sue?
I really need the Heart Lattice!
Love Marg

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
What a difference a lighter colour makes to this card. The black with the craft is just not me, sorry Sue, but the pale blue is for me better looking and closer to what i may be tempted to make. It does make a nice card for a man or a tomboy woman (can you get that? mmmh not sure) but not every woman likes the sugar and spice cards. I have though finally order some of that craft card to try but it reminds me off cereal boxes.
Having just seen Steph's entry at the bottom i am just so so sad. Tina my flower, i am sending you a big hug and my thoughts are with you. I hope that Berkeley is pain free now that she has left our mortal earth for pastures new that she is happy amongst the angels.
Sorry folks, need to get myself back together again and get a grip as my hubby would say, but i can't the now,
Norah (Glenochil)

Jess Watson said...

Morning Sue, great card for men, love the way you have used the Kraft card to weave a background. Will watch the video later. Sad thoughts to Tina and family, take care, Jess x

Susan White said...

Loving the lattice work Sue - I've often done a similar thing with patterned paper, but never with embossing, and it looks really effective. Thanks for sharing, Susan x

Marianne's Craftroom said...

Great technique, I have done this with ribbon

fame01 said...

Hi Sue
Well you couldn't have done a better card so to speak for some inspiration for me as I have just found out a good friend of ours as had a major stroke and lost his speech eye sight and cannot walk and sadly lost his memory so this card I am going to take my inspiration from as we are going to visit him on Sunday, fantastic card thanks sue for the idea hugs sarah xx

Alison Couchman said...

Great card Sue - good to have a different style as not everyone likes all the frills and furbelows.

It may be that it just doesn't show up on the video but I don't see the point of the stamping. I suspect you'd have to see it in real life to see the difference it made.

I'm glad you let us see how to work with an error too. It happens to me far too often and it helps to see how you altered your design and what you did with the unexpected. Thank you.

Micky French said...

I love this card, the lattice is a really nice effect I will certainly try that out.

Gives me some interesting ideas for using for lots of different occasions, and for both genders. Lovely.

Good morning Sue and every one. Enjoyed watching this video. I have strips of Kraft paper left over after making Sheena's Faux leather booklet. So I will be experimenting over the weekend to make a card based on this tech., Thank you. Kind regards Sandra Kent.

snowqueen62 said...

Morning Sue and everyone
Today's card is perfect inspiration for a mans card. Just what I needed for the new man in my step-daughters life whose birthday is next week and we are travelling down to Devon tomorrow to meet him.
So sad to hear about Tina's Berkley, sending lots of love and hugs her way.
Hugs Sue x

Hi Sue, this is a good technique and one we can utilize our little scraps of card - and we all have lots of those don't we? Thanks for the idea.

Hi Sue, and yes I did enjoy the demonstration for today! The background lattice weaving is so effective and the blue version is so pretty for someone not feeling so well. Love from Jackie D

Sheila - Ginger said...

Morning Sue,
Great video today. I love how you did the lattice work it's so effective. Out of the two colours I do prefer the blue if using as a get well card but otherwise they are both fabulous cards.

Love Sheila xx

Theresa Pace said...

oh i like what i see!. can't watch video yet as at work and it is blocked by organization. but something to watch tonight. i think i really need the square grand dies for all the matting and layering and other extras i can see in your card xx

Lynn (delphinoid) said...

Lovely card Sue!

I love the lattice, it reminds me of doing paper weaving at work/school with the children but yours it much prettier with a lovely detail.

Both colour combinations of the cards are lovely and I love the Twisted Metal Die you've used.

Happy Crafting!!! :) X X

Lacelady said...

Amazing how you come up with these ideas Sue, but I love them. Sunny here today, which makes such a nice change, so I'm going to craft all morning.

Margaret said...

Good morning Sue
Really like the woven lattice idea, but your tutorial on cutting frames to me has been invaluable, as I have had a few slips with mine! However I have found I can hide some slips by running the frame through the GC in an embossing folder! I do like how you have achieved the embossing on your frame it looks so elegant. Perfect for a male card.

Good morning Sue and all blog ladies,
I just want to say my thoughts are with all of you that are going through tough times at the moment, you are in the right place, crafting is such a great therapy!

Huge hugs

Vie Carter said...

Like the lattice technique, however the card is a little sombre for me, would love it though in pastels colours, however would be great for a male card


CraftyJo said...

This looks very interesting, can someone please find me some time so I can catch-up on all these wonderful videos???? ;)

yorkshiresue said...

Hi Sue
Well today's background is not the norm but is very eyecatching and can be done in any color to suit the rest of the card you are doing
Yet again a Sue Wilson special

Love the use of kraft paper on this. A lovely masculine card today.

Terry Owen said...

Another stunning card. Thank you Sue :)

Sam Smithard said...

Hi Sue, Fantastic Video as always, I Really Love The Lattice effect Card using Kraft Card. I must say I liked both Colours but for me I Loved The Black One, I tried this technique a long time ago when I stuck it all together and turned it around right at the very end I'd gone wrong so I just stuck a Flower on its surprising what Flowers or Butterflies can hide Lol.
I really love The Twisted Metal Die from Spellbinder and I also must purchase The Grand Dies for matting and layering I've always wanted to purchase the more Fancy Dies! I Love The Background, I Just Love The Embossing Folder, and the Fabulous Stamp using Perfect Medium since watching your Video's I've started placing my Card on top of my stamp rather than using a Acrylic (I think that's how you spell it!) especially with The Large Background Stamp as I was finding I couldn't Stamp them correctly, then you suggested once in using a Brayer to go over The Card well I had one I hadn't used for a very long time, so now I use this and it's perfect every time, Sue you're a Star and I can't Thank You enough for all information you share with us, Where else do you get Stunning Cards Everyday and Video's Twice a Week YES I'm very biased when it comes to this Blog as it's "THE BEST."
Take Care Sue Love and hugs from Sam x
To all you Wondeful Wilsonettes, I just wanted to say I'm thinking of you all, please take care you ladies that are not well, and Tina my Heart goes out to you.
Hugs from Sam x

very elegant card!

Anonymous said...

Hi Sue and Wilsonettes. Have now caught up with both video's and as per very informative and gives us our Sue fix we all yearn for, as we just dont get to see enough of you elsewhere ! The last time you used Craft Card I vowed to buy some, but when I see it Im not sure, but as I dont buy my own cards, then I need to remember who I AM hoping to please, so again I must invest to play !
Both yesterday's and today's card are beautiful and today's card would be ideal for Sarah to give as it has that tactile feeling for someone who is strggling with loss of vision. It also made me feel better when it didn't 'work out as planned' as I have SO many oopsadaisy days, an I hear those pesky flakes laughing at me from behind the cupboard door (a quick shake of their box soon hushes them) !
One thing Id like to ask our family is - even after burnishing our micro beads well, do you find the odd bead escaping from its place, rolling around your work space looking towards the exit route ?? I work them well into whatever Ive used them on but always find a few not so happy to play even with adhesive paper hanging on to them !
Im sure Tina would be touched to know how many friends here feel her saddness and devistation today, and I know in time she will find the strength to post here again. And if you are popping in Tina, to get quiet support, we are ALL holding your hand through this angry sad time.

Hugs to all.
Lancashire Sad Steph xx

Brenda Lello said...

Hello Sue,
Brilliant video - love the card, think I like the blue best but part of me can see times when the black could come into its own. Thank you for showing us how you make the frame, I can see this technique will be so useful, love it - thank you.
Steph, thank you for keeping us all informed about Tina, if you talk to her tell her our thoughts are with her, and to focus on the lovely memories she has of her beautiful Berkley - also keep talking about him ...... With any bereavement I promise you it helps.
Love and crafty hugs, Brenda xxx

A good instructional video for an interesting technique that I haven't used in a long time. The embossing of the background makes for a more interesting feature on the card. I must get those twisted metal tags and frames.

Pauline A said...

Hi Sue, Thanks for today's video. Watching you is like having a personal tutor in the room. I enjoyed the woven lattice technique especially in the black and kraft co loured card. I have to make a 40th birthday card for my step son and will definitely give this ago. Just hope that it turns out half as good. Hugs Pauline A x

Cameeli of Richmond said...

Sue the Video was great I love the Lattice technique.

I have been a little disturbed with the sadness surrounding loss on the blog and I hope you won't mind if I add a poem to help heal those who are feeling sad, lonely or bereaved.


Friend, please don’t mourn for me
I’m still here, though you don’t see.
I’m right by your side each night and day
and within your heart I long to stay.

My body is gone but I’m always near.
I’m everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I’ll never depart
as long as you keep me alive in your heart.

I’ll never wander out of your sight-
I’m the brightest star on a summer’s night.
I’ll never be beyond your reach-
I’m the warm moist sand when you’re at the beach.

I’m the colorful leaves when fall comes around
and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I’m the beautiful flowers of which you’re so fond,
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.

I’m the first bright blossom you’ll see in the spring,
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I’m the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
and you’ll see that the face in the moon shine is mine.

When you start thinking there’s no one to love you,
you can talk to through the Lord up above you.
I’ll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
and you’ll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.

I’m the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I’m the smile you see on a baby’s face.
Just look for me friend, I’m every place!

Catch up again with you tomorrow.
Cameeli xx

Hi Sue
What a lovely technique. Must try this. Your talents are neverending
Irene Allen

SusanP, Kent said...

Had to laugh when I first opened your email as I read the heading as 'Lovely Lettuce'. Time to visit the optician! This technique looks great and it's SO enjoyable to watch you doing it, but I just know I'd make a right mess of it! A fantastic design for a masculine card.

Barbara said...

Beautiful card Sue, the video is so inspiring and instructive. You make all the demos look so easy!!!
So sorry about Berkeley, my thoughts are with Tina and hope she is coping. Glad that she had Steph to talk to. It would be nice if we could give a card to Tina from all us!!!

Fiona said...

HI Sue, A great male card, thanks for the inspiration. Fiona

Hello Sue, I love this card so "male" friendly which is why I have pinned it. I hope you enjoyed sunshine as we have had it nearly all day.

Steph thank you for keeping us all informed, I feel so sad for Tina but Berkeley was so loved and she will have that with her forever. Cameliee your poem was so beautiful, thank you. Love and best wishes to our whole Wilsonettes community.

Great card & video Sue! I love to paper weave, but have never created an open weave like this. I'm off to give it a try. Thanks for the inspiration. Theresa x

Myra P said...

Hi Sue,
Hi Everyone,
Arrived in Spain earlier today - nice to see some warm sunshine ! Unable to see video today as reception rather poor! However can see the photos and read! Agree with others who say these would make lovely cards for the men in our lives!
Also agree would be lovely to show our care for Tina but this would be a bit difficult!
Steph you are doing a 'great job' and no doubt as you say you will pass on all our good wishes and love. Try not to upset yourself too much - trust Cassie is settling in!
Love to all,
Buenos noches , Myra P

magpie said...

Helloooo Sue and fellow Wilsonettes! Wonderful to see the basket weave again Sue and in video! Lots of "pinning" to do when I get the hang of it......! It's a fantastic male card. A "live and learn kerb" to an error made good by a different way. That's me too.....(just the error! Lol!) As I don't comment on the Wednesday card Giveaway (For those who don't know me, I've been lucky enough to have won one!) I can now say it was a "wow" from me! Just gorgeous Sue, loving the pink! Just to say "thinking of you all" Norah, Sarah, Steph and Tina. Sending tons of hugs and love to you. Tina, thinking of you sooo much. Berkeley will always be around you and he'll be letting you know that he is there. Imagine that you can see him bounding in a big field that is full of daffodils, bluebells and wild flowers. You were so blessed with one and another. Eeee ecky thump nobody else would do! Do so so understand.........Hope you are okay Sue and managing to rest in your busy schedule. I don't know you do it! Wonder woman eat your heart out! God bless Sue and all Wilsonettes xx Love Karen xx

Hi Sue
I really do like the weaving technique and love the card you have made using it.

Victoria said...

Another great technique shown really clearly in the video. As you say, it would be appropriate for a male recipient, but as always, you can vary your colours.

Gosh so new to all this and with Sue's help my first post on her blog.

Been a huge fan for several years and plucked up courage to do something new and let the great lady know how thrilled I am to watch her videos and see her beautiful cards, that are so inspiring.

Loved the watermark effect and then the emboss on the lattice work.

Tracy Stitt said...

Hi sue, live this card simple but stunning!! My heart goes out to Tina and anyone else who's feeling a little low.
Cameeli that was a really touching poem loved it.
On a brighter note my best mate Mandy became an aunty twice today both ladies were having a section done! Can't believe on the same day. Different hospitals tho Her sister had a bouncing baby boy and her husbands sister a bouncing baby girl.
Love Tracy from killie xx

Hello Sue - very late with my comment today. Just finished a commissioned wedding card and used your lattice bows die - it looks just wonderful. When I've got a camera that works (mine bit the dust a few months ago) I will send you a photo. Away dog/housesitting for my daughter tomorrow until Sunday but hopefully they will leave their laptop so I'll have some internet. Wishing all the Wilsonettes a good week-end.X

Alice G said...

Great card Sue, lots of brilliant tips as always!

Janice Wallace said...

Its amazing how a colour change makes a card so different. Both lovely, but I like the blue best.
hugs to Tina, so sad to lose a loyal companion. They are always there for us when we feel low.

Hi Sue
Today's card is very different to your usual ones
I do like it though and the techniques you have used to create it the centre for the sentiment is lovely and I love the way you have hooked them together to create that special look that only you and spellbinders do
You Take Care Sue
Hugs to you and yours
Theresa xx

Sandy H said...

I've got several male cards to make so thanks you for the inspiration, Sue. The basket-weave embossing folder is one of my favourites but I'd never have thought of using it to make a lattice in a month of Sundays. Haven't got any Kraft Kard so I'm going to try if with a manilla folder.
Thank you for sharing the lovely poem Cameeli.

Hi all
Clever background it looks so effective. This combo would be great for males. That die cut in black is very pretty.

Marianna Hammer said...

Thank you for another wonderful video :)
This is a lovely card for a man. It's so hard to find ideas for men's cards. I'll have to make one for next Saturday, and I will most probably get help here on you blog :)
