Buckle Card

Hello crafters!  Today's video is a real treat of a card that mixes up several of the collections to make a lovely buckle card.  I also show a really pretty way to make a flower out of some of your leftover strips of felt.  I hope you can take a few minutes and give it a watch!
A quick reminder too that Julia Watt has the One Day Wonder today with some new Justrite stamp sets and if you have seen any of her sneak peeks on her blog, you will know that they are just beautiful!  She will be on today at 8am, 11am, 2pm, 4pm and 7pm (it's a long one for Julia today!)  Do tune in to see her amazing demonstrations and products!

Buy from Joanna Sheen

Finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x 8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. This is a real stunner, so beautiful, I love how all of the dies work together and I love the purple card : ) Hadn't thought of folding over the top edge of the felt, it does give a lovely different look , doesn't it, will remember that one(I hope!) The tiny flowers are so pretty too.
Sending Pam your daily hug : )
Also a hug for all that need one.
Today Norah you get a special hug, so sorry you have been so down, but it is lovely to have you back : ) You have a clever lad don't you, me and numbers have a strained relationship so it's always good to hear of others that get on well with them : ) I bet your hills are stunning today, if you have the beautiful sun that we have here in Southmoor!
Glad to hear that you are on the mend Theresa.
Good luck Pat L. Enjoy your time at Chealea : )
Take care.

Wow Sue, I have seen you make a lot of these buckle cards in different forms and your video of it is still so inspiring. It's so beautiful, love the lilac. Have to have x-ray this afternoon to rule out pneumonia, but am sure will be ok as antibiotics and steroids seem to be kicking in, and I feel human again after 3 weeks. Thanks for all your support my dearest Wilsonettes.

Sam Smithard said...

Hi Sue, What a Truly Awesome Card and Fantastic Video, you are one amazing person your Fabulous idea's.
I Love how you share every thing with us, your such a kind person.
I Really Love today's Card as I'm so lucky to say I have the Fabulous Dies that you have used so I'm able to create The Buckle Card, THE SAD thing is I Don't have The Tide Together Embossing Folder
I know I can use another Embossing Folder but I so love this one I'm cross with myself for not purchasing it at the time!
Also I don't have the Beautiful Felt which I will have to purchase to make Stunning Flowers like these. I Love The White and Purple together, and The Fabulous Soft Tulle and Bakers Twine, and The New Pearls on a String which are such good value as you can cut of as much as you wish, and the price for them is Extremley good.
Fantastic Informative Video as always with lots of Tips and Techniques, I can't begin to Thank You enough for sharing, it means such a lot to me.
Take Great Care Sue
Love and Hugs from Sam x
Hugs to All, Have A Great Day fro Sam

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Beautiful! I always love your buckle cards and this one is no exception. It is exquisite. The Tied Together folder has to be one of my all time favourites and the felt flowers are gorgeous.
Norah, glad to have you back and so sorry that you have been so down. Steph hope you are getting better. Love to everyone and big but gentle hugs to everyone who needs one. Love Alison xxx

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Thank you for inviting me into your craft room this morning.
Today's gift is just what I need at this very moment. It is my turn to provide and demonstrate at my next meeting with my crafty friends at our local library. Fortunately this is giving me a full week to prepare nine sets so I have to start now preparing them.
I always love your buckle cards and white/white with a little pop of colour always does them justice.
Take care everyone and see you tomorrow.
Janet x

Lynne Mills said...

Hi Sue, absolutely love your buckle cards. The tied together emboss folder is one of my favourites. The faux pearl string is a great extra touch. Will watch video later with a cup of tea. Hope weather better for you if not come back quick as its getting sunnier and hotter here. Lol lynne m x x

I knew poochies weren't listening to me yesterday cuz the little b's ( not sure which one did it) bit through some busy lizzie plants in a tub on the patio and left them on show. Did I panic oh yes - hastily shoved the stems back into the tub and turned it round so they were at the back. Hopefully hubby wont see them for a little while, so they can either magically grow some roots or hubby will think they just didn't take. You would think fur babies would behave for me as I look after them most of the time but no , I believe its because all they have to do is look at hubby with their big eyes and he thinks they're angels. Silly man !!!,

Love and hugs to all x x x

trent999 said...

Fabulous card! Fabulous video (can you guess I love today's offering?) lol. The tied together has to be the most used embossing folder EVER, it sells out as soon as it comes back in stock, I'm so glad I've got mine. I love those cute little flowers and the colours you've used. Thanks for sharing.

Although if I stopped buying card stock Id have a bit more money to put aside for your new dies that will soon be old !! Well meds time then crack on.
Hope you are having a wonderful time in Florida and your weather is how I remember it oh so long ago now !

Sam Smithard said...

Hi Sue, it's me once again I hope you don't mind me leaving a quick message to
The "Lovely Norah McPhee"
I was Looking for Tied Together Embossing Folder and because we have obviously both signed up to your You Tube connection where you can see your Video's etc. There's also a place where you can leave messages for each other, So Norah The Wonderful Lady, saw what I was looking for she checked out some of the on-line shops and found two who still had them in stock so I managed to order one and I'm Truly Thrilled, So Norah Just In Case You Don't Check You Tube Again Today I Thought I'd Say Another Huge Thank You On Sue's Blog You Are A Lovely Lady.
Hugs From Sam x

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
Oh Sue, what a beautiful card that you have made for our delight this morning. I love your white on white cards as we know, but having that hint of colour just peeking out to say "hello" is just the ticket. Your buckle cards always look so intricate and stylish and the plainer ones or muted toned ones make the cards for those impossible people in our lives called men. This one would make a beautiful and different wedding card for someone special and you could incorporate the wedding colour scheme into it as the hint off.
Well Cameeli, i hope that Ofsted have finished and gone so that the staff can get back to normal instead of on high alert and stressed to the max. I have taken part in a few reviews for Rorys school (The Secondary Support School Service) in Alloa as a parents point of view. I get called in i think because i was the most awkward of parents and gave them a deadline at the Primary Support in how they could help Rory. He has come in leaps and bounds since, i can only sing the praises of the wonderful dedicated staff who are absolutely fantastic with him. Anyway you can breathe again Cameeli and get on with the wonderful work that people like you do.
Lindsay, are you having a thing about the "F" names the now as i couldn't help but notice how the wee foals i think all have names beginning with F. I would love to adopt poor wee Fauna but i don't think she would like my back garden somehow.
Theresa (Tob) i can only sympathise with you over your infection. If it is pneumonia it will be so sore to even have a wee cough so i'm glad that your tablets are doing some good and you are feeling that bit better than you have been this last few weeks.
Sam (Smithard) flower,left a wee message for you on google+ regarding folder.
They say that you get a whole new wind when you get blessed with grandchildren, but i think i'd just be even more knackered chasing after them. Have a great day with the wee ones Heather.
And although it is not sunny it is a bit brighter and with a wee wind for the washing, Hooray!!!!
Thank you for sending me hugs and for the caring thoughts that you all send. I think we must have the very best of lovely people on this blog and you so lift my heart and spirits just by the amount that you all do by caring about others. You are very, very special people i am so very grateful that you care, thank you.
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Lovely card and colours, the rose die is on my Need List! I have to be a bit frugal on my craft spends as I don't sell my cards, so this die set will be perfect if I can make a variety of styles of flowers

Hi Sue. Oh WOW, What a stunning card today !! And a fab video too !! Your video was just fab Sue, so helpful and easy to follow, so thank you for that. I loved it !! The card you have made today is nothing short of stunning !! It is just beautiful. I need to get the Umbria die set now !! I have everything else for this card apart from the tied together folder but I could use your heart lattice folder instead. I love the white on white with the hint of purple. Just great. Your felt flowers are gorgeous too. I think this is the most beautiful of your Buckle cards that I have ever seen. Thank you for sharing such a lovely card Sue. I made a card following your last video yesterday, using the inlaid technique. Instead of the Roses dies, I used your faux quilled leaves with white and periwinkle card to make a man's card. It turned out great !! I am very pleased with it, so thank you for sharing that card with us Sue.
Enjoy your day today, lots of love Tres x x x

Enjoy the rest of your day every one. Wishing lots of love and hugs for all those feeling down or poorly.
Wishing everyone lots of love today, love Tres x x x

Hi Sue,
A stunning card, just up my street, lacy, delicate, floral and with a hint of my fave colour, purple. Your Italian collection die sets are divine and your demo is truly inspiring. Lots to add to my wish list (again). I love the felt flowers too, they are so tactile.
Bye for now, from Sunny South Wales.

Waited until there was time to watch the video before commenting today, Sue. It's a gorgeous elegant card and thought it would be oh so difficult - and then you make it look oh so easy!! Love the mix of the dies (but sob sob don't have them). The good old much-loved TT folder always a winner, too.
Thank you so much for all your work in bringing us these twice-weekly videos, always a joy to see. And always something new to try. We sure are a lucky bunch.

Myra P said...

Hi Sue,
Hi to all crafting friends!
Great video Sue and truly lovely card. I love the colour combination - just enough colour to lift without dominating. Will be trying the new flower as I love flowers. Don't have all the dies but think I could adapt it a bit.
Thanks so much for your daily inspiration and painstaking explanations and clear photos. It is much appreciated.
Had a crazy kind of day and not had time to look at any postings as yet - will try to catch up later. My oven died - so that caused some minor trauma here!
Love to everyone who is suffering pain today. Sending you hugs and good wishes.
Love Myra

granny sue said...

Hi Sue. I'm all behind today, been busy concreting!! I am now all bathed, just need feeding and then your video to watch and all Julia's shows. Lovely evening. SueL x

Lindsay Martin said...

Love it, do I need to say any more Sue, will give it a go when I get the time!
For Norah and all those that had noticed, yes this years foals all have names beginning with the letter 'f' Florence, Frond, Flounder,aka floppy, Fauna, Fiona ( Sues name choice!) and finally Finn, each year is the next letter in the alphabet, with my forgetful mind it helps me remember how old they are! Fauna is still fighting she is a strong girl, I certainly can't take that for her.
Lynne those girls one of these days they are going to get you in such trouble;-)
Thanks to everyone for your wishes and hugs they are very much appreciated, and I would live to send many hugs back to everyone xxx
