White on Kraft


Hi bloggers!  The video is now fixed and working, sorry about that! Series two is on deck to begin on March 27th (not next week as I originally said) but I'll fill in with some good stuff in the meantime I promise!

 I just love the look of kraft card and I think this Justrite stamp set is brilliant to use with it too.  I hope you can take a few minutes and give it a watch!  It is always nice to receive a comment on the video page too!  With this video, we have come to an end of the first series that I filmed.

Hi Sue and all the crafty crew, another wonder of Wilson card as Steph would say!!
Yes this is simply gorgeous.

Pam, I was so pleased to see you had checked in. Sorry that you are in tears but your tears will help you heal as your emotions are released. Sending hugs to comfort you.

Beautiful card today and even without the video I think I might be able to have a go at something similar. Might not nd up quite as beautiful but I'll give it a go!

Pam I am so pleased that you joined us yesterday. There is some truth that time heals. It doesn't make it better but it makes it different. It does take a long time but you will get there. God bless!

Hi sue

Eemeli said...

Uh, now I am not sure if those two panels fit to each other that well. I find black to be a bit too dark chose...maybe dark brown would work better. The layout is gorgeous.


Sandy G said...

Hi Sue
Gorgeous card. Love the colours. Thanks for sharing. Thinking of you Pam.

CraftySuetoo said...

Hi Sue and everyone. I've never been a fan of Kraft card but you're changing my mind. I'll have to wait until tonight to watch the video though - work beckons!
Pam, we're all sending you our thoughts and best wishes. Sue xxx.

Anonymous said...

Hi Sue, lovely card but - like Cameeli - couldn't view the video. Will try later as it looks so interesting.
Another card will be fine next Tuesday - you spoil us already and I think we can survive without a video - just!!

Pam, so pleased you looked in yesterday. Keep strong - it's a long road and there's no satnav for it - you will find your way in time. Hugs to Tina and to Julie Laz who has such a tough time too.

Beautiful card I like the white and craft card. I have a small stash which I haven't used so will give this idea a go. Shame the video is not working I do like to watch them. I am looking forward to the next set.

Have a great day

Good morning Sue and Wilsonettes
You can watch the video if you go onto You Tube and subscribe to Creative Expressions. When I first saw the card I thought it was a glittered background, but when I saw the video I could see it was stamped using distress stains? The background stamped in this way looks fabulous. Also the Kraft card looks amazing stamped and embossed in white. Some great techniques on today's video I especially like the tip about using a black pen and dotting around the image it certainly made the image 'Pop'. Thinking of you Pam and sending a hug to you and all that need one. Congratulations Debra on your fabulous news.

Very pretty, love kraft

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
I have just tried to watch the last episode for this series and like Cameeli it says 'removed by the user'. I thought for a moment that my laptop and tablet had decided to have a lie=in.
Having said that I love today's gift. Kraft card is becoming very very popular and for me it does give that 'vintage' feel. Today's sentiment is for all who are not feeling too good for many reasons.
See you tomorrow.

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. Another kraft card beauty
: ) I love the way the colours stand out against the brown. That floral stamp is gorgeous. I'm off to watch on Creative Expressions. Sorry, but I don't know how to leave a comment on the video page! I will try to find out and do so from now on : ) Dear Pam, we are missing you being the first comment (Cameeli is doing a good job but it is not the same) but just glad that you feel able to read of our love for you. I hope the thick fog isn't causing people too many problems. Take care.

Alison Couchman said...

Simply gorgeous.
I've never used kraft card and am still undecided about it. That said, it does allow all the lovely details to show up so well. Maybe that's the job of kraft card - to step back and allow the other elements to shine? Dunno - will wait to see what else you do with it.
I do love that background stamp and the more I see you use it the more I want it.

Pauline A said...

Morning Sue, I love the way you have used the 'secret garden stamp' but as I was unable to access the video like many others, I will just have to have a play around and hopefully come up with something similar. Glad to hear that you are starting your next series of videos as we all look forward to them very much. Thank you for all of your hard work. Very much appreciated. Hugs Pauline A x

Crisco said...

Absolutely love this. The stamp and the way you have coloured it are gorgeous.

Hi Sue fab video as always. I have never tried embossing on kraft card will be now the distress paint on the stamp a gorgeous end result. hugs Theresa xx

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
Today's wonder has a prettiness to it with the white and the colouring in of the flowers. The white borders look so nice framing the panel of flowers and the sentiment. I just need both sets of stamps and i am away.
Pam flower, i am only sorry that only kind of support that we can give is in words. We cannot give you a hug to comfort but know that we are thinking of you and there will be many tears to come because you loved and were loved, but the time will come that you can start listening for the happiness that only you knew and will start to look back on the things you did that made you happy once, i can only hope that once through this horrible but necessary time you will get that comfort return. Take your time and allow yourself to grieve, but we will be here when you need us again.
Fantastic news Lindsay on your riding school license, i truly hope that you get it to work for you.

To everyone trying the video if you go on to YouTube it is there under Creative expressions.

Debra who is going to be a new grandma (granny up here is Scotland) enjoy your daughter the now before she becomes mum and remember how you wishes you could change your name to anything bar mum and not tell them what it was, (or maybe that was just me that wanted a different name from mum....mum.....mum.... Enjoy your new found status.
The fog is rolling in up here and pinching my hills again and he has brought his pal the cold with him. The gloves will need to be found for today as hands full of cuts and the weather somehow nips them just at their sorest point. Hope to see you all tomorrow,
Love and crafty hugs

Hi Sue,

Absolutely adorable card. You are such a wonderful artist Sue and just seem to always know how to add that special touch that makes a card sing! I thought the background stamp was gonna be a piece of your special paper stash so I'm even more impressed that it was a stamped, coloured image - gorgeous, and love how the little black dots just make it pop out.

Hello Sue,
The gremlins seem to be working overtime today, I started to watch the video on my iPad, only for it to freeze about three quarters of the way through. Ended up using the laptop. So a BIG thank you to Heather T telling us how we can access it on YouTube.

This card is so pretty, and I really feel you have converted me to Kraft card. I love the way you have used the background stamp and coloured it - it really makes it POP.
Another brilliant videos Sue, you really do spoil us. Thank you.
I hope you have a good day and the gremlins leave you in peace, love Brenda xxx

PAM - so pleased you are reading the blog, Keep crying when ever you need to - its all part of the grieving process, Tim would be so proud of you, his love will be with you forever. LOL

DEBRA Congratulations, it's great being a grandma!

OMG, Sue, ridiculously thrilled to see you are coming to HAVERFORDWEST!!!!!
Have spoken to Ben at SET as soon as they opened to ensure a place on July 5th, but they're not taking bookings yet.
You will love it in Pembs - such a beautiful county with staggering beaches and fabulous countryside. Hope you have a day or two like you did in Scotland for a wee break.
Can't wait. And we won't need our WOW brooches!! Can't fail to meet a lot of other Wilsonettes oh my goodness we are so lucky. THANKS Sue.

Hi Sue,Hi Everyone,
It's a gremlin day! Just been to dentist - she's not a gremlin - very nice lady! When my card was put in machine to pay - computer printed receipt but nothing from the little card reader! Receptionist pressed another button and everyone's receipts spewed out of machine! Lady said she was grateful it wasn't end of the day as they would have had miles of the stuff! I'm blaming the fog!

It is a cold grey day here! What a lovely card to cheer up a cold day!

Pam great to see your post yesterday! We do miss you and so pleased the Blog is helping a little bit!

Debra - Congratulations! Being a Grandma is so good!

Congratulations Wales on getting a visit from Sue!

Love to all, Myra

A different take on pattern. The patterned paper looks like printed paper from a stash, The overall effect is lovely and the colours may be altered to the likes of the recipient. An excellent instructional video. Can't wait for the next editions.

Hi Sue, back again! Now I've recovered from the shock of seeing Haverfordwest on your demo day list, have played the video. Love the treatment of the Secret Garden stamp and the layering of the tags. Don't like colouring in at all, but could be tempted to try something similar. Didn't dream you could do something as pretty as this from a stamp, you are such an inspiration.

Very unusual to use white and kraft card together. I'd never have thought of it, but it looks really good and makes a very pretty card. Can't wait to see the video, but have just realised I haven't watched the last one yet! I didn't know that it was possible to comment on the video page.

Hi Sue and Everyone,
A Work of Art, this one! Absolutely gorgeous in every detail! Thank you so much for showing us how to do it.
I absolutely love craft card and white.
My Granddaughter and her fiancé are marrying on 5 July, and I have
just received their invitation, and guess what... the most lovely craft card with very personal white screen printing, made and given especially by her artist bride's maid as a wedding present!
How can I compete with that when making 80 place cards... Well, today you have certainly once more inspired me!
Thank you so much, again.

Hi Sue,

The background on this card looks lovely can't wait to see how you actually made it. Although I don't particularly like brown the colours you have chosen to go with it really do pop. Thank you for sharing.

Gorgeous card, love the white embossing on Kraft card it really pops out. I don't have the Secret Garden but have the Rose Garden which is very similar. The distress stain stamping is lovely and has given me a use for my Distress stains that I have never used. Love how the black dots make the flowers really stand out. Looking forward to the new videos with your own dies!!!

I So Love Kraft Card and heat Embossing in White is Truly amazing, and then Stamping The Secret Garden Stamp from JustRite in a Distress ink Liquid I Love this Stamp and I Loved the Techniques you used, and then to bring it Life with Colour from Coloured Pencils which were just Fabulous I was extremely impressed as always.

Hi Sue and all the Wilsonettes! What can I say? Fantastic video and a beautiful card. I'm nearly leaning right over taking this Kraft card to the heart. It is lovely. Love the Secret Garden stamp and the border stamps too. Wow! Love the colouring in of the flowers and leaves. I can only say my eyes must be worse than I thought. How you did the black dots around the flowers (which makes it pop!)...I thought you had used your piercing tool........ I wouldn't mind but I only had them tested in October! Lol! Wonderful video and stunning card as always Sue. Gorgeous Wednesday Giveaway card too! Good luck to everybody on Saturday!!xx Just to say, thinking of you Cazzy D for your operation tomorrow....Congratulations Debbie on seeing the first scan of you little grandson......Nanna Pat hope you had a wonderful birthday.....Sarah (fame 01), hope your mum is fine.....Wow 'P', the wonderful news that Sue will be landing on your doorstep in Wales! So so pleased for you! x Heartfelt prayers to Pam, June, Tina and all those who are going through sad and hard times too. Don't hold back your tears, let them all out. God bless. xx Love Karen xx
