Days of Wine & Roses

Hello friends!  Tuesday video day again and I will be showing you how to make one of the styles of flowers you can do using the Classic Rose die.  These are very easy and a really pretty addition to any handmade card too.  Don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel by clicking on the link on the right hand side of my blog.  That takes you right to the channel and you just need to click "subscribe" in the right hand corner.  You will automatically be notified when I add new videos to the channel.  There is a second card for you to see today as well so don't forget to scroll down to have a look!

Buy from Joanna Sheen

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

A card from the Belle of the Ball  stamp set by Creative Expressions for the second card today.  I started by letterpressing the background using the Embossibility folder called Ornamental Iron.  I inked the folder with Antique Linen distress ink and embossed it onto my milk coloured card.  I stamped the border twice from the set in black on to milk card.  I added a thin black mat to them and mounted them diagonally across the corners of the card.  I stamped the dress in black and embossed it in clear and cut it out by hand.  Using an Antique Linen distress marker, I added some detail to the dress then mounted it on foam and placed it on the background.  I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with Decorative Labels Eight and inked it with Antique Linen.  Using the Vintage Florets, I made several small flowers to use around the sentiment tag.  I mounted the entire piece on a wide black mat and added Cosmic Shimmer black PVA glue dots to the edge.  A milk mat layer with piercing holes surrounds it and then a final solid milk mat.  Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

BridgetCG said...

Hello Sue, what stunning cards, great video showing the roses, and the combination of the dies. Love both cards, but have to say the first one is my favourite. Bx

Anonymous said...

"How pretty?" you say - well, very very pretty - a real Sue card. Love it all; gorgeous roses and plum card. Thank you for the video, wonder how many will be trying roses today?!
Really like the subtle letterpressing on the second card, and the design so easy to achieve.

'P' in Wales

Dreamt last night of the demo day at HW - you had to do it on the sidewalk and only two of us turned up in the morning (was it you Heater T?) then I realised I should have been at a later session. A C&C presenter was trying to sell a new cutting gizmo but it kept sticking, so you smiled sweetly, got into your very tiny red car and drove off. Bizarre, or what?

Sorry, Heather T!! 'P'

I forgot it was video day (the Bank Holidays confuse me!!!) so it was a wonderful surprise when I logged on. Will have to watch when I get home as I'm running late this morning. I've followed your instructions on how to make the rose but it will be fantastic work along with you, thank goodness for tablets that go anywhere! The second card is stunning - I love it.
Have a great day all.

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
Two very beautiful cards for us this morning. I love the plum card it's such a rich colour. I have the stamps you used to make your roses with and I wonder if you could stamp then cut them out. I'm off home today so will try later and will let you know. I love the colours and all the dies you've used in the first card, especially the way all your dies work together. The second card is a very pretty feminine card. Thanks for the hints and tips in the video and as always you make everything so achievable.
'P' in Wales you made me laugh when I read about your dream and it was definitely me with you lol
Hugs x

Lynne Mills said...

Hi Sue, brilliant cards today. Love the flowers on the first card and the dress on the second. Don't I wish I had a figure like that. Will watch video fur babies willing later with a cuppa. Lol lynne m & fur babies x x x

There is justice after all , hubby has been constantly saying "don't know what your problem is , poochies are little angels for me". Well they weren't yesterday when he was looking after them hehe. He planted lots of daliha bulbs that our youngest daughter had bought for him and poochies sat and watched. As soon as his back was turned Tilly started digging them up. It does me good to know once in a while its not just me they drive nuts lol .

Lynda - email not arrived again - craftlynnie59@hotmail.co.uk .
Lindsay - hope your rib is better and your mums ankle.
Jean - big big hugs for your son.
Yorkielass, Magpie, Norah - gentle hugs to you from the little b's

To all "Wilsonettes" may your day be bright even if the weather is not . Lol lynne m x x x

Hi Sue and Wilsonettes,
two very pretty cards today but quite different in design - like them both Just watched the video for the Wine and Roses, lovely colours. Will have to give flower making a go when back home.
Flying back to Dubai after my 4 day break in Phuket at midnight.
Hope the sun is shining for you all.
Best Wishes, Angela in Thailand x

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, A beautiful video and card, I especially loved watching you demo the classic rose. Your second card is equally beautiful, I especially love the faux letterpress technique, I haven't tried it yet - but I will !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Angela Wade said...

Hi Sue, loved yesterday's card too. Very pretty in the blue and white.
Best wishes, Angela in Thailand x

Nanna Tina said...

Hi Sue
I love both cards, lovely colours I will have to get those dies as soon as so I can have a play at making the roses, I have some smaller dies to make roses but they are just too small for my hands.
The weather is so different today and it is dull, wet and grey and hubby has dentist today so crafting will be later, managed to watch the video on my phone this morning before my family got up but battery went flat before I could leave a comment so put my computer on.
Love and hugs to all
Happy crafting
Love Tina x

Jean Z said...

Hi Sue, Both these cards are beautiful and I love the rose die must get it . love Jean Z xxx

Anonymous said...

Morning Sue. Two beautiful cards again. The first one with your roses on is lovely. When i got theses dies i cut them out in a few different colours and sat and made them all up the first ones didn't come out that well but by the time i had finished i thought they were ok and the plum card makes it look very rich. The second one is beautiful i have these stamps but never thought to cut them out by hand i have always stamped them then cut them out with a spellbinder now you know why we need you just to give us crafters your insperation and to remind us to do thing a little diffarent. Have a lovely day.
Best Wishes.

I love the deep plum of the first card and the roses are gorgeous. I keep wanting that die but am very aware of the cost of posting these highly embellished cards so might wait a while.
Have a good day all.

Denise Hancock said...

Hi Sue I love the classic rose set and use it on a lot of my cards. I have only got the Spanish background and the Seville sets so far. The others are beautiful too must add them to my wish list. The second card looks almost Victorian - very pretty.

lorraine taylor taylormadecards said...

Love the first card, but unsure on second im not keen on using stamped images as the main focal point,properly because I don't stamp unless its a sentiment,
I think everything else about the card is lovely, and that stamp is so pretty and detailed,sorry but number one wins it for me sue x
Norah that could be so tempting lol dont know how long the cards would last for in our possesion but we could have a laugh finding out lol
Take care all , raining in highlands today

Hi Sue. Morning Wilsonettes. Thank you for 2 smashing cards ( not used that before) now I know why - its an understatement to your work ! The classic rose die has to be next on my wish list then the fern, or.is it the striplet, rose then fern ? Oh dear, I hate having to make choices ! What a fab tutorial for the rose, and that little touch of sugaring - the Finishing Touch'
Off for routine bloods and to get a lump looked at, ignored it for 2 weeks and its a little painful, so time to get it checked (just below my ear and on my jawline)

Hope all of our family are well, to those not so good, I send my love and hugs.
Have a wonderful day Sue.
Love you.

Hello Sue, Two beautiful cards again and thank you for the great video, you make it look so easy, the results are wonderful. The plum card is so rich and love the embossing. The dress on the second card is so elegant, must get that stamp. Have a lovely sunny day with your Mom.
Pam and Tina gentle hugs to you.
Jean hope Gary is improving and has his operation soon, hugs to you both.
Lynne M your fur babies tale made me smile, I can imagine your hubby's face when he realised what Tilly had done, hugs to you and little bs.
Norah, Steph and Tres hope you are feeling well.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
Two very beautiful but entirely different cards for us today and being honest i couldn't pick between them as both stunning. The dress is one i have always longed for but at 5'1" have no chance of ever doing it justice, my friend Debbie now at the grand rafters of 6' she would look stunning and she has the model figure for it as well. I forgot it was Tuesday so forgot that it was movie day and the bonus of another fantastic card for our delight.
Welcome home Janet(Ecco) hope that you had a lovely time when you were away. I hope your 4 day reviver to Phuket has done you a power of good Angela.
Now Lynne, i was giving some thought to Tilly's legwarmers as they wouldn't take that long to knit up (listen i went through school being called knitty Norah and not for the normal reasons of the nit nurse either)and i am quite sure you could get her a little body vest with the tutu attached from like Matalan to full fill her ambitions of star and beam gymnastics;). How could you deprive that wee soul(my word)diva(yours) her ambitions?
Now Lorraine, all we need to make sure of is that they have a healthy overdraft and not to go too far over it,yes???
Going back to bed as having a rough wee days so i will wish you all a fanastic day and see you all tomorrow. Cameeli having gone AWOL since the wedding come backkkkkk...
Or was the festivities that lively that you are still in recoverance mode?
Love and crafty hugs to all,
Norah (Glenochil) where my hills are shining bright and clean today.

Good morning Sue,
Love the video and the tutorial on making roses, I know you have it on your blog - but just to see you making them (and I now have these dies as well) is brilliant. Thank you! Card is absolutely stunning, almost a signature card -anyone would recognise this is your work. Love the second card and the Faux letter press looks gorgeous.
Have a good day, big hugs to everyone who needs them LOL.

Hello Sue
Both cards today are absolutely fabulous. I have just watched the video and am just off to cut some roses ready to have a play! The video reminded me that I didn't reach perfection when I tried to make some last time!
I love the rich plum card you have used and it is one of my favourite colours so will try and achieve a similar result with the Spanish collection dies I have.
The second card is very elegant too and love the "posh frock stamp" you have used.
Love from Lesley S

Sandra said...

Good Morning Sue & lovely ladies,
The bank holiday weekend has confused my days, so seeing the video tutorial was a lovely surprise, thanks Sue!
Two gorgeous works of art again today, I do love those dress stamps, they look stunning however you use them, they have so much detail that they work being stamped with no colouring as well as being coloured too.
Cameeli, I hope you are well, missing your humour, (and I am excited to hear how your lovely wedding weekend went), but I am sure you are exhausted so take it easy.
Lancashire Steph, hope all goes well for you today!
Crafty Hugs to you all,

Tres said...

Hi Sue. It's video day today !! My favourite !! A two - fer as well !! You really do spoil us Sue. The video as always is just FAB !! I love you demo on your Roses dies. I have really got into making these Roses now over the last few weeks or so and to be honest, I am finding them a bit addictive !! I just want to make them in any colour card I can find !! I have not tried them using felt though yet.
I will definitely be following today's video now as I see I was not rolling them back enough after bending them round the edge of my paintbrush and not quite getting the two smallest petals quite right to fit inside the larger layers !! I am always learning something new following you !!
I really love the rest of the card to and have most of the dies you used so I will definitely be giving this card a go. I already have the plum card so I will be making Plum coloured Roses next !!
The second card today is beautiful to. I have not seen this dress stamp before. It looks very pretty. I may have to get this one. I think this dress would look beautiful on a Wedding card or Wedding invitations. The border stamps are very pretty to. X x x
Have a lovely day today, take care Sue love Tres x x x

To all the wonderful Wilsonettes, Have a lovely day today. Take care everyone love Tres x x x

Tres said...

PS I forgot to say to you Sue, I made your faux quilled leaves for the first time yesterday in white and they are just gorgeous !! All I need to get now is the faux quilled blooms flower dies !! I still love my Roses though !! Love Tres x x x

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
the first card is absolutely exquisite - the dies are just made for the colour combo of white and plum. Beautiful, elegant and divine, that's what the roses are. I'm still having to practise to get them looking as good as yours.
The second card is also beautiful but it cannot compete with the first one. HOWEVER, I would count myself very lucky to receive it.
Hugs, Rose

Love making the roses but mine were never just right - ok - but not right! Now I know where I'm going wrong and it's in the last two little pieces and the rolling or not enough of it! Lol .
Tres I think you and I have the same problem with them - but hey there is comfort in not being the only one! x
Have been cutting loads of faux quilled flowers and leaves as I go to a Care Home to craft this afternoon! Have stamped and cut the big butterflies and other birds and flowers and we will make a Spring garden picture together! - well that's the theory - practice may be a whole lot different. We will have fun - that's the main thing!
Steph - do hope all goes well today. X
Jean still thinking about you and all who need a crafty hug!
Love Myra
Ps. Did Heather turn into heater cos dream had demo taking place outdoors!! X

Beautiful, both of them, what more is there to say

love Pam

Janice Jerolymack said...

Thank you sooooo much for the rose tutorial. I will finally be able to use my dies. Very much appreciated and I just love your cards.

hazel said...

Hi Sue
Thank you for the rose tutorial and for the Video.It's a beautiful card the second card is so beautiful and very Elegant would make a beautiful wedding card
Take care

Joanna Dickson said...

Good afternoon Sue. Thanks for an excellent tutorial again. Please don't stop filming these videos. I love them.
Luckily for me I have the dies for the first card. Which I'm still playing with and will for a long time yet health permitting. The second card I have one of the elegant dresses which could look equally as stylish but I don't think it has as much detail as the dress featured here. It's the letter pressed background that does most of the work, it really makes it another wow card. I think I might try to give it a go in the very near future. My napa valley die finally arrived today so that will be something else to play with too. You have inspired me with so many ideas again. You really are a treat.
Well the sun's out here today so I'm going to make the most of it.
Crafty love to everyone, take care, Jo xx

Mary Burton said...

Hi Sue,
The first card is such a classic design, which would work in almost any colour way and create a completely different mood. The roses are lovely, they almost look real, and add great dimension to the card. Great, easy to follow tutorial, as always.
What a contrast with the second card, so dramatic and theatrical, and again, would work in many colour combos. The stamps are so detailed, a very girlie card.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, two beautiful cards today but I think the first one just has the edge for me, probably because of the roses :-)
Norah, sorry it is a bad day for you but the hills do look lovely so I'm sure they will help you feel better.
Lancashire Steph, hope the lump turns out to be nothing but you are right, it is always best to get checked out.

yvonne masterman said...

Hi Sue, two more beautiful cards the first one is my fav tho the second one is very pretty just right for a prom card. going to watch the vid now and see where im going wrong with the roses. Yvonne xxx

Karen G Ratcliffe said...

Morning Sue
Thank you for the superb video! Love the purple and white of the best wishes card. The dies are still on my wish list, but Mother's Day is coming!! Love the second card and admire how all the designs go so well together!
Very creative and lovely, as usual!
Hugs, Karen

Lynn (delphinoid) said...

I have become really good (and quite quick) at making the roses now since following your tutorial, so thanks for sharing that technique. I love to learn all the new things that you demonstrate. I'm amazed that you never run out of ideas. You really are so creative.

Sam Smithard said...

Hi Sue, I've said it before and I'm sure I'll say it many times, I Love Tuesday/Thursday as it's Video Days, The Fabulous You Tube Subcription is a Tremendous idea, Where all Your Fantistic Video's are all lined up no need to look by name, I think it's a Wonderful idea.
If people don't watch Create and Craft, (Which I only WATCH when YOU, JULIA, PHILL, and SAM are on). by watching You Tube they can at least watch your Awesome Demo's here.
Not being unkind it's without a Presenter Keep updating you on stock levels and going through Stock so for me.
The You Tube Subcription is a great big "PLUS FOR ME!"
I Love how you've used your Spanish Dies together, I really Love how you Embossed the Centre of
"The Granada Die" it's so Pretty! Then cutting
"The Galicia" in Plum is Awesome The Detail of these Dies are quite Tremendous, Fabulous Flowers using The Classic Rose Die, Sue you are one Extremley Talented Lady, The Video's are so informative and helpful for Future Reference.
We are really Lucky Today "TWO CARDS" So today your sharing another Beautiful Card I Love The Milk and Black Card together, then you've used and a Stunning Stamp From none other than "Creative Expression" who for me are now Market Leaders in Craft Products, you can trust them, the quality is perfection,
"No there not paying me to say all this Lol!"
The Stamp you've used "Belle Of The Ball" is a Stunning Stamp, the Awesome Embossing Folder is Extremley Striking and so detailed, I love all The details of this Card, The Dress Is so Pretty and you've even added a Pearl Choker on just to add that difference, I've so enjoyed watching The Video twice! and I'm sure I'll watch it again as there's always something you miss, The Cards today have been Truly Tremendous, Thanks for Sharing Sue I so much appreciate it, and The Fabulous Photograph shots.
Take Great Care Sue Love and Hugs from Sam x
To All Sue's Bloggers I do hope your all well.
Hugs from Sam

Pat S Witney said...

Hi Sue
both of these cards are absolutely stunning. I seem to have missed yesterday's as well. Not to sure if I'm on foot or horse back at the moment with our relatives staying. I will look at the video later if I have a chance, otherwise it will have to be later. the dies and stamps are stunning as are the roses. They look like velvet roses. Superb. Hugs to everyone who needs one as usual.

Beautiful cards again Sue, Cant wait for my rose dies to come now. I have a question. You often use lovely hat pins on your creations and say you make them up yourself , however I have been unable to find the blank pins for this. Please can you tell me where they can be purchased. Many thanks.... Rena
