Curtained Trio


Morning bloggers!  It''s Tuesday so that means it's time for another video.  Today's features the California Collection and since this card was posted on my blog during the Feb. release, I am adding in another card for you to see today as well.  I do hope you will take a few minutes and enjoy the video and please let me know what you think of it!

Buy from Joanna Sheen








Finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x 8 1/2" in size.




I thought you might like to see the original card that I made using my new technique called the "scribble glue" idea.  This card was shown on Sam Poole's Woodland Animals shows the prior weekend.  On kraft card, I drizzled  the golden pearl, olympic gold, spring green and choco brown  Cosmic Shimmer PVA glues to create this background.  It's a bit of fun and gives you a really unique looking background as well!  Sam has the animal stamps for sale in her shop, there is a link on the side of my blog to it if you are interested.  The finished dimensions are 7" x 7" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Beautiful cards Sue, as always. Love the scribble glue & squirrel
Hope Steph Norah and all who are ill or suffering have a better day. Tina, hope you are taking out some time for you.
Thank you everyone for your continued support, it does help.

Good morning Sue and everyone. Your California dies are gorgeous, off to watch the video now before anyone else gets out of bed to disturb me. Insomnia does have a positive side in that it gives me quiet craft time, my latest project is practising your paper rose technique.
Have a good day all.

Morning Sue and all the crafty crew!!
Really lovely cards today and I especially like the little squirrel and the lace always a winner in my book.

Will have to watch the video later I am taking my partner for a day-op to drain a cyst on her breast. There is always something so fingers crossed all will be ok. Its been a bit worrying as we have gone through this last year with one on her leg . But I we remain positive and fortunate that we have each other.
Pam thinking of you hope that you feel stronger with each passing day, we all love you.
Crafty Sue sorry you have problems sleeping.
Not long now for our Ally Pally adventure!!
Have a good day everyone.

Elegant card, Sue, and great video again - thank you. As you say, the dies make the card and nothing else is needed. A good day for people who don't like bows! Hmm those pesky curlicues, know what you mean, patience needed.
Seen you've done another Jason Pollock card with the four squiggly panels behind Sam's squirrel - great effect.

'P' in Wales

Cameeli - hope all goes well for your partner. A worrying time.

GM Sue -classy card - will watch video later.

I tried the scribble dribble glue technique yday - but some of the glues hadn't been used for a bit - I have them a good shake and then a rest before using- but some thin drips came out -so think I've got a variant -the scribble and splodge technique! very effective though.

Morning Sue, Fabulous card and video, loving the border dies, this card is really beautiful.
Your squirrel card that was on Sam's show is stunning, I love the effect of the 'scribble glue' and the colours work beautifully together and Mr Squirrel is gorgeous.

Cameeli, I hope everything goes well for your partner today, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Lots of love from Patricia xx

Annie said...

Two lovely cards, Sue - the scribble effect is fabulous, such a cute squirrel. I have the stamp but not used it yet.
Not enough hours In the day!! Happy day everyone!

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. This first one is simply beautiful, I understand totally why you wanted to sit and look at it once finished :) I just adore Sam's woodland animal stamps and your scribble glue looks lovely. It gives a great background (and reminds me of sauces that you put on ice cream etc. especially the creams/browns that you used on Sunday:)) I have watched your video first today as I always forget to come back and comment after watching it later in the day!I left a comment on YouTube too. If, like me, anyone can't find how to leave a comment you have to click on the YouTube sign -bottom right of the screen-and it will be there. Just watching from this site won't show it. I hope someone can translate this into sensible directions for anyone that needs it, sorry, I am rubbish at this type of thing)Love to Pam. Take care.

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
Great video and two beautiful cards. Another thing I love about all your dies is, they all have places for the glue etc. which makes them so easy to work with. I love the scribble tecnique it looks such fun to do and gives a beautiful textured background. Sam's woodland animal stamps are so cute.
Hugs x

Forgot to wish Cameelis partner all the best today too. And Kitty, it's always good to see your comments, hopefully it's much easier for you now you know there are no "rules" when commenting :) Take care.

Anonymous said...

Morning Sue. Two beautiful cards but both very different. The first one very classy the second very colourful and cute. Loving the scribble background it looks such fun and relaxing as you could do a few all togeather and then you have them ready for the next time you need one. Hope you had a nice relaxing day yesterday after your shows on sunday. Take care sue.
Best Wishes.

Vick said...

Morning Sue,

Well another video, i cannot wait to watch! I love the videos great idea really cause we don't have SUE WILSON WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS hahaha when its so long between shows, LOL.......oh well, i lied.....i still get them, along with many others i would think, lol.......i love this 1st card simply for its feminine look, i really can't lie, i havent spotted how beautiful those borders are until now! And that card for Sam, well, i loved it the first time i saw it and that scribbling with the pearly stuff is genius!! but that doesn't surprise me in the least, c'mon ? we're talking about you!! anyway, i will have something to watch after my shower now and have been a subbie of the channel for some time now, hope you'll pop by mine when i get some video tuts done again, seem to have screeched to a halt this last few months since moving, have a lovely day Sue, big hugs my friend, Vick xx

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
This is truly elegant and beautiful. I also love the combination of colour and design. And it's so good to have a die which is detailed but still has an area for glueing/taping.
Totally different is the woodland card with the drizzle background. Looks absolutely lovely and I shall certainly try this. It could also look elegant by using just gold and black, silver etc.
You really do inspire us, thank you.
Hugs, Rose

Dear Sue Two for the price of one again! We are lucky and even though both cards are so different they are wonderful! Take Care Love Michelle S xxx

Found this video on YouTube a while ago and loved it. The dies carry the whole design beautifully. I love the scribble background - need more glues as I suspect it won't look so good in only black and white!

Jackie Durrant said...

Two beautiful cards Sue. I'm enjoying using my California collection dies, as you say, you don't need much more with such pretty shapes and patterns and the drizzle in the second is so effective. Love from Jackie D

Hello Sue, Two beautiful cards, the first one is so classy and elegant, think those borders have jumped to the top of my must have list. Love the squiggle background and the squirrel on the second card. Thank you for a great video. Love and hugs to Pam.

Hello Sue
The Sun is shining, after yesterday being such a dull, very wet day!
So that makes everyone in a happier frame of mind ( I hope)!
I love seeing what you do with your Dies, Sue!
Not keen on the Squirrel stamp reminds me of the Gruffalo which my Grandchildren adored a long time ago!
Thoughts to Pam!
Take care
Love Marg

Great tutorial Sue, the squiggle technique looks great fun. Anne x

nuttinanni said...

Love the 'squiqqle' card, what a fun one for a child. My youngest daughter could never say squirrel due to hearing problems so it always came out as squiggle. hugs Cheryl xxx

Love the California dies Sue...as always your videos are so informative...keep them coming. Would never have thought of using the glue to scribble, I like the texture and unique background shown on the sqiirrel card.

Love the cards today especially the scribble one .. xx

Anonymous said...

Hi Sue - two very different cards today, the first one very elegant and I love the border dies. I liked the scribble dribble background when I saw it on Sam's card but after seeing you demonstrate it on Sunday I couldn't wait to try it and I made two cards yesterday using this technique and was really pleased with them. Ideal for choco-holics!! Thank you for your wonderful ideas. Best wishes

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes. Another dull/bright/rainy/hailing/sun day in Lancs ! Typical UK weather you may say !
Thanks for another very helpful tutorial Sue, it made me wince when you mentioned glue and grab in the same sentance lol as with my fingers dropping card and die cuts far to soon than I should, that cosmic shimmer does GRAB and wont let go (hense my regular Marg Simpson growls) !! And my gurgling screams just as I watch that last piece of card fall in slow motion then meets an almost finished peice of work, and falls JUST where you dont want ! The times Ive had to add ribbon or embelishments to 'hide' a disaster or even throw away when I cant hide a 'Steph drop' ! So yep - glue and grip in one sentance is a 'no no' lol. It really does look more detailed and complicated than it really is, and if we didnt have you showing us otherwise, we would continue to be warey of trying.
Im not a lover of the new Sam Poole woodland animals, but who cares, we cant all like the same things or how boring would the world be ?
Cameeli - hope your partner gets on ok today, please keep us updated love.
Pam - hope your day is as good as it can be (always on our minds)
Tina - mobile probs cant take incoming calls chick : (

To all other Wilsonette family, take care, be happy, stay safe.
Love you.

samantha wade said...

Hi, love both cards so different, will watch video later as off Linedancing now but had to check your blog first.
Love Sam's new stamps and your squirrel with that drizzled background is fab, i will have a go at that, the owl is my favorite stamp too.
Thanks for 2 cards again today.

Susan White said...

Both lovely cards, but I so like that woodland creatures set by Sam Poole - trying not to buy it, as my resolution for this year is to try to use up more of what I have before I add to the mountains of stash!! Thanks for sharing, Susan

Anonymous said...

Hello Sue
I love both of today's' cards although they are so different.
I think the "squiggle technique" is so effective but would not want to use it too often and use up those lovely glues!
Sam's stamps are really great for children's cards with the lovely choice of woodland type backgrounds that are around at the moment.
Looking forward to looking at your video later.
Best Wishes

Hi Sue, I love both cards. The first using your dies is gorgeous. Thank you for the great video. The second is really cute and fun, great for kids big and small.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
I can honestly say i can try this one Sue as i have all the necessary equipment, whoooaaa must be a first for me. I really like today's cards, both are lovely and although i can't do the cheeky chappie squirrel, i have dark bronze cosmic shimmer which is a start as i will need to save up the pennies again to get his stamp collection.
Cameeli, oh how i am thinking off you and your partner. I sincerely hope that she gets good news today. I had laser treatment for cervical cancer cells when my wee lad was born and had to keep going back every 6 months and know just what was going through my mind at the time, so i am thinking of your dear friend today.
CraftySuetoo, i think a few of us know the insomnia feeling, but it is when we can get crafting done without moanin minnies in the background asking "are you not finished that yet?" I'm not quite sure how i can have insomnia as well as C.Fat.S(M.E.). Had to return early yesterday from Stirling, not a good day unfortunately, but it was nice to see my friend even just for a short while.
Sorry folks, just can't concentrate today, but i hope you all have a lovely day, we have a beauty up here and my hills are so detailed today seeing all the pictures in them that make them beautiful. See you all tomorrow hopefully and take care everyone,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Lindsay Martin said...

Two great cads today Sue, thanks so much. The borders are the only ones in the Californian collection that I haven't go, but do have lots of others, so can give it a go with them.
So good to see our Pam commenting again nice and early, and hope things go ok for your partner Cameeli. No foals but I did get a nasty bite by the back of my knee from one of the mares yesterday, so thinking it might be getting closer. Norah I know how you feel,with CFS, I have it too, you either sleep and find it hard to wake or can't sleep, with both you still feel knackered all the time, just pace yourself, and take care xxx

GMH said...

Hi Sue, love the first card and the dribble technique on the second is something I look forward too trying.

Question please: How can we get your dies, embossing folders and other products in the U.S.? The shipping rates and the exchange rates are cost prohibitive to those of us on tight crafting budgets. Any suggestions?

Thanks for all you do!

Myra P said...

Hi Sue
Hi Everyone,
What a super video! Love the card and I have everything except the borders! Oh dear! However will try to adapt!
The really detailed California dies cut cleanly from first cut! The second card is really cute and I like the background and will definitely give it a try! Not too keen on the squirrel however. Just not for me! I liked the owl .

Sorry you not so well today, Norah! Just rest and enjoy your beautiful Ochils! They are beautiful!

Hope all is well today Cameeli .

Pam, pleased you are hanging in there! Still in our thoughts and prayers.

Susan I decided to re-organise "things" in my craft room! Wish I'd never started! Agree need to use ate better use of what I have. Charity Shop is going to do quite well as I have card and paper which I"ll never use - a lot patterned! Anyone else got too much stuff? Or is it just me!
Steph agree with your Lancashire weather report - we've just about had it all today!
Love to all,
Myra

Myra P said...

Hi Sue,
Oops my comment to Susan was a bit mixed up! What I meant was - I need to make better use of what I already have! Love Myra

Hi Sue & Wilsonettes love the first card it's gorgeous it doesn't need anything bows or bling .will defently
Have a go at this as I have the dies to do it,love them & they do cut beautifully so detailed. Video was brilliant as always Sue.
The squiggle technique is a fun idea & makes a great background Sams stamps are all so cute.
Love & hugs Lynda Brock xxxx

Hi Sue
Such a clear explanation of the card today on the video. I'm now delving in to the dies I have to copy the style. I'm collecting the Italian collection first. Best wishes to you on this day of April showers.

Two lovely cards Sue but the Squirrel has won it for me. I love all Sams stamps and these ones are just so cute. The squirrel card reminds me of the cards you used to do at C&C with all the character stamps in the early days. Your cards were always so bright and colourful and I was always watching out for the blond American woman as you weren't on that often.
I would love to be able to see some of your early years at C&C and see how much you have changed. Think I will ask C&C when you are next on!!! Only kidding!!

Hi Sue
Your California die set is gorgeous. I particularly love the border dies that you have used. Not to sure what happened on Sunday as your show wasn't recorded. But would have loved to have seen the drizzle technique in action. I could use these PVA glues for other things so much go and buy some. Hugs to Pam, Steph and Norah. Glad you can see your hills today Norah. Hope your partner goes on ok today Cameeli, we are all things of you both, and will keep our fingers crossed.

Pearl said...

Fantastic cards today Sue and loved the video. The card you made was so clever and yet so simple, must get the dies you used. I only have one of them so far, but I can see many uses for it - that's the Decorative Frames set B.

I do have the new stamps now so I can try out the squirrel card, whooppee! I'm ahead of the game for once.

Thank you for sharing these cards today and craftihappiness to all, love from Pearl

Two beautiful cards, the first reminding me to try the design with some of my older dies and the second with a great glue technique that I can see being very useful for male cards. Thank you for the inspiration. x

Joanna Dickson said...

Brilliant Sue. I could watch you all day everyday and never be bored. I bet my teachers at school wish they could have kept my attention and interest the way you do lol. Enjoy the rest of your day, love Jo xx

Lesley Griffiths said...

Brilliant video and a super card. I have all the necessaries to make it so I'll pop off and make it for my friends retirement this Friday. The scribble technique looks fun to do also. Happy Days.

Blue Rose said...

Oh my gosh, how cute is that scribble card, will have to try that now. Your die layered card is gorgeously elegant, and so easy to put together, love those. Great job!

sued99 said...

Love both of these but the first is my favourite. The California dies are amazing.

Sheila Lampard said...

Hi Sue
Love the California/Hollywood dies card - lovely in black and cream.
Loved the video.
The scribbling glue technique was a scream on the Tool Shed with Dean - he makes everything such fun. So I had a go and was impressed - going to run it through and emboss now its dry!

beautiful cards Sue as always ,great video .Laura O

magpie said...

Helloooo Sue and all the Wilsonettes!! Loving the video Sue. The way you just simply use borders and other dies to make a simple yet gorgeous card. Hence the " looking outside of the box" that you've often told us to do. The California/Beverley Hills collection is beautiful and love the gorgeous Decorative frames set. Watching you put them together is magic! The squirrel card is so cute and funny and love the "go nuts!" tag. I'm sure we've always wanted to or if we have, loved doing it! Ahhh this what you meant about the scribble glue. I still haven't watched you yet...shame on me.... It's looks a great fun way doing this and I'm sure that kids would love to have a go at this....(as well as us!). It's a great effect and love the colours. Love the card full stop! Thank you too Sam, wonderful cute designs xx Awww Cameeli, hope your partner went on okay today. It's pretty worrying about things like that and sending you both a hug x Helloooo there Kitty, you're doing fine. Don't put yourself down. We all live and learn and hey, we've got the best teacher there is eh?! Clare, nothing wrong with a bit of splodge to go with the scribble! I bet it looks fantastic! Myra, I think we all have stuff hiding away and not been used. Note to myself, must use those lovely patterned papers tucked away in the draw......Mrs B, thank you for the tip about Youtube will give it a go....Lyndsey, hope the back of your knee is ok.... It would be lovely to hear when the foals arrive. I love horses... To Pam, Tina, Norah, Lynda and all who are hurting for whatever the reason, love and hugs to you. Thank you too Debbie for thinking of our lovely blog family xx Take care Sue and "thank you", take care everyone xx Love Karen xx

Hi sue, lovely cards crafty hugs Julie xx

Sandy H said...

Beautiful card using the Californian collection dies. I want those dies! The scribble glue background looks really fun to do.

Norah, sleep pattern disruption is part of my CFS (that's why my comments are usually on the 'night shift'). Know what you mean about being able to craft in peace then - when you've got the energy.
