Split Channel Card



Hi crafters!  I have a lovely channel card to share with you today.  I had this card sample with me at Ally Pally  last weekend and had lots of questions about it.  I did say that there was a video for it, so this perfectly timed!  I hope you enjoy it!  I have missed taking some extra photos of it too somehow, so sorry about that!

Hello Sue and everyone, beautiful card today. I love the split channel.
Mt twin grandsons Jack and Ryan are 11 today, they are growing up so quickly. I will see them after school today.
Dorothy lovely memories of your mother in law.
Myra, can imagine you and hubby as Romeo and Juliet, you are never too old for love.
Meg I bet you miss your baby cuddles, sad they are so far away from you.
Txcowgirl you will enjoy your goodies when they arrive.
Not been out for a few days as they are laying broadband cables in the Close and it is too dangerous for me to walk out, but moving around house okay.
Love and hugs to all, have a great day.

Morning Sue. This is a beautiful card very elegant,classy and simple. I made this one when you blogged it for your new released dies in the foundation teal and white. It turned out lovely but i will have to invest in some of the aqua and pale green colours as they look very clean and fresh. It will be much easier to make now you have done the video for it as it did take me awhile to work out how you had made it lol. Thank you for your videos they are so informative.
Best Wishes.

Gorgeous card today Sue and my friend Carols favourite embossing folder. It was one of the cards we had hoped to make when she came to stay last week but we ran out of time, so now are planning another get together soon, I hope.
Lovely to have you back Norah as your memories bring to mind my own childhood. Not as happy as yours but my brothers and I had our moments and I treasure those memories. Thanks for sharing xxx

June said...

Good morning Sue, Pam and all Wilsonettes, I have just watched the video and it is a really wow, I saw the card at Ally Pally and it really is a sight to behold, the colours used are wonderful, if any of you know me out there you will know that aqua is my favourite colour, I am going to have a go at this, got all the ingredients in my craft room.

Happy 11th birthday to your grandsons Jack and Ryan, give them an extra special hug for me.

To all who are feeling unwell, or are suffering I am sending healing hugs too.

Have a safe, healthy and happy day everyone, hugs June Smith xxx

Love the card, Sue, aqua and white such a nice colour scheme and do like the French channel!! Nice touch of sparkle with the iced snow, bought some (and midnight) at H.West but not used yet. Thanks for another great video - don't watch on You Tube as like the surprise on video days and think I might hog out if I go there.

Lindsay Martin - are you okay? - not posted for ages. Anyone out there in contact?
Txcowgirl - always an upside to having an enforced bed stay - hope your JS parcel arrives soon.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Your gift today is exquisite using a gorgeous colour palette and beautiful dies. It just oooozes elegance and I would be in seventh heaven if I received such a gift.
Your new efolders are lovely to use and I think they are the best you have done so far.

Myra P - You are never too old for love. Your evening sounds wonderful. We have to make the most of making such wonderful memories.
Sandra - missed you yesterday hope you're OK and have not taken in too much of the gin before putting the sloes in. lol.

It's quite dark this morning with a wind and definitely on the chilly side. Time for a wardrobe change around me thinks. Autumn is fast approaching.

To all who are not feeling too good this morning hope you feel better as the day goes along. To all take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

Diane said...

Hi Sue. This is very pretty and when you watch the video quite straight forward to do. I love the pale card and the French boarder, think that one might come my way soon. My lovely friend Jackie bought some of your card for me at Ally Pally so having stopped stroking the packet I will open it today and have a look. I had a busy day yesterday where the phone and doorbell kept going. Lovely to catch up with people but I had things planned which didn't happen so once they are out of the way I can play :) . Have a great day Sue whatever you are doing. Take care love Diane G xxxx

Lacelady said...

I would like to have seen it 'in person', but Ally Pally is a long way from the west of Ireland. I love the concept, so I will have to have a go myself.

Debo said...

Hi Sue!
Yet ANOTHER stunning card!!!

We bought your A4 Checkboard Pinpoint Embossing Folder at Ally Pally last Saturday. LOVE it!!!!!!

But we have a request: Can you bring out an embossing folder with the dotty part of the pattern ALL OVER the folder, to create a linen look????
Also, we love the original Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder but is not big enough to even cover a C6 card. We keep buying other dotty embossing folders in larger sizes but the dots get bigger and further apart, nothing is as small and pretty as the original. I know it can be extended but that is a hassle and it is still limited. With the PinPoint range, is there any possibility that you can bring out an A4 'Swiss Dot' folder????

Oh, and we also bought some of your dies - they are just SO pretty and SO versatile!!!

Thanks Sue!

Debbie and Ann

Helen Kington said...

Good morning Sue - this card is just magical it is so pretty and I think the aqua card may be another purchase I need to make along with some new dies.
Just back from walking my dog and I think it will have to be a rest day as my foot is playing up. The ironing can definitely wait.
Hope everyone is having a good day - it is bright sunny but a bit breezy here. Take care all ~Helen K xx

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW !! This card is stunning !! I really love it all !! As always, this is a fab video, with you making it all look so easy !! Thank you. Just like one of the other ladies, I do not watch your videos on You Tube as I like to watch them for the first time on your blog because then they are lovely exciting surprises !!
The Aqua is one of my favourite card colours and looks great with the coconut white card. Your Austrian Salzburg die matches so perfectly with the French border die. (It is all on my wish list.) I love your Rows of Bows background EF and this is on my wish list to !! I love that you have added the ice snow glitter giving this beautiful classy card a lovely hint of bling. I have never made a "channel card" before but what you have done, adding the glitter in the gap has made it much more appealing to me. ( I never thought of doing that !!) I really need to give this technique a go now. I really love your beautiful bow to. (I am hooked on making those at the moment.)
Thanks for sharing this amazing card today Sue.
Wishing you a lovely crafty day, lots of love Tres x x x

Pat L, I am so sorry to hear about your grand daughter in hospital. Please know I will be thinking of her and you, and all of your family going through such a difficult and upsetting time. My heart goes out to you all and I really hope everything goes ok. Sending you lots of love and best wishes from Tres x x x

Norah McPhee said...

Good afternoon Sue and my amazing Wilsonettes,
I loved this card the first time i seen it Sue but have only just managed to get the dies. It is so pretty and soft, and would make a beautiful card for most occasions. The colours are beautiful in the soft colours but i bet it would look so dramatic in your favourite black and white making it possible for a lot of different tastes. Thank you Sue, i love when i see the videos even if i have seen them a few times, ok a lot of times before, but i never get tired of watching. Hope you have recovered from your mad few weeks and feeling more like yourself again. Sending you hugs anyway just to say thank you dear friend.
Janet flower we all need to let off steam sometimes otherwise you would end up as daft as me. You carry on as i am quite sure that we ALL understand that. And another lady Jane or Janet, you are not ungrateful, and did not sound it either so way lay that wee idea right out of the brain, ok. Stop being so hard on yourself as you have no need to. Sending you hugs just to say hello.
Myra, Romeo and Juliet couldn't have looked more beautiful or felt as content as i bet you and lovely Mr P did. Glad you have had a wonderful finish to your holiday and you are feeling the benefits of it. Enjoy your last day in the sunshine flower.
Happy Birthday to Jack and Ryan, Pam. I hope they have a lovely day today even if it does include school. Glad to see that you are being wise and not tackling outside with all the commotion going on outside as we can do without you injuring yourself and having a major setback. Sending you a hug to keep you going but please don't do too much. Hugs to young Robbie as well and come on Robbie you can do it and beat that chair, have every faith in you being whole again someday soon.
NancyD, get Skype hook up to your laptop and them you will at least be able to see them on there, in person and hear them. I know it is not the same as seeing them in the flesh, but at least you will not miss them as much. You need a mic and camera if they are not built into your laptop or computer.
Happy 18th to Maggie(better without a bow) daughter. Sorry you are not well wee lass but you will have plenty of time to celebrate when you are, all i would say is enjoy every minute of it.
Sheila(Ginger) i am so glad you seen in reality what i see every day of my life, literally. I have woken up to these hills where ever i have lived and still love the magnificence of the beauty that surrounds me. I hope that you found my fellow Scots as hospitable as i know they are and can be. My cousins live in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire and they literally are up in Scotland bank holidays, real holidays. Only one of them has been abroad twice. Once Iain(6'3" but younger than me so wee cousin) took his mum and dad on their ruby wedding to New York and once to Tenerife in which he said he wouldn't go back as it was awful barren looking and nothing to see. His wee brother (Stuart 6'8" still younger so wee cousin) brought his wedding party up here to Edinburgh to get married as my mum couldn't travel down to see him get married. His wee sister(Melanie she's off normal height)is getting married, again in Edinburgh with the whole family being brought up from South because of mum again, next year. Although she knows mums gone now she is still having it up here because of me. I must have the loveliest wee cousins on the planet.
Sorry two parter i got carried away again

Norah McPhee said...

Welcome TxCowgirl to the wonderful of Wilsonettes. I am so sorry you are not well at the moment but quite sure that wee touch of retail therapy would help and do wonders to cheer you up. Make plans of all the things you want to attempt when you get back on your feet but please take it easy and don’t rush at it. Sending a get well hug in the hope that it will make you feel better.
CraftyNanna, i hope that your dear hubby is back feeling better soon and that once the medication has kicked in, he will feel a lot more like himself. Sending him get well hugs that will hopefully give him that much needed boost.
Diane, are you the Dianewithchips Diane because i get confused easily and not used to seeing your real name. I hope that you are getting a bit more stable and more able than you have been. You have been missed flower, but i do hope that you are now on the upside.
Lindsay and Lynne, missing you so much her on the blog. I am missing your horses and capers and Lynne's Tilly and Cully and what they have been up to. Lindsay i hope that you are ok and Lynne that your hubby is back to feeling more like himself soon. Take care dear girls((hugs)).
Well i am going to see if me and my brain can connect to make a wedding card for our nephew and his lovely fiance who after 15 years engaged have decided to get married in a fortnights time in Cancun. When was this decided... last Friday or Saturday. I never ever thought this day would come as she always wanted her parents to go but her mum wont go across water in boat or plane or even under in the channel tunnel. So they are going to have a big party when they come back, and quite right they are too. I am so happy that this wee lass will finally get to be a bride as she is a beautiful person inside, he couldn't do any better as she has stuck through the good and bad and still loves him. So excited as i can now make up invites to the party instead of the wedding, whey hey.
Have a wonderful day everyone and hope that it is good to you,
Love and crafty hugs to all my special Wilsonettes,
Norah (Glenochil)

Good Afternoon Ladies,
Sue, this card was on your work area at Ally Pally and I love it, I love the Aqua card, but sadly couldn't buy any at he show as there was none. I bought that die though, so I may have a go in a different colour.
I am so cold today, I just can't get warm at all today, maybe it's time to put the dreaded heating on! I am going to find the winter part of the quilt out today too !
Yesterday was just 'one of those days' but today is a new day so onwards and upwards!
Had Lucy home poorly since Monday night, I think she caught what Soph had before the weekend but worse, so everyone seems to have had it expcept me!
Pam great to hear you are still moving about, it's so easy to stop and cease up! You have come so far! Hugs xx
Lynda, hope you gave recovered from your nose bleed, I will get round to emailing you back, was lovely to hear from you! Hugs to you xxx
Janet, the Gin us still in it's bottle! I have the laborious task of 'pricking the sloes' I think I got fed up last year and stabbed them all with a fork! Paul has suggested freezing them so that their skins burst as an easier method but I'm not sure! Any recommendations ladies?, there must be a sole gin expert among us! I also thought that raspberries would be a nice alternative?!
Well I am off to watch the video, I must get some cards made, I will update my blog tomorrow!
Warm, gentle hugs to everyone , especially Mrs B, Pat, Lynda,Cameeli, Brenda, Myra, Lynne, Norah, Pam, Steph, lovely Margaret, Tres, Janet, June,Julie,Nanna Tina! Emeeli, Hazel , & everyone of you kind, caring & genuinely wonderful Blog Family members xxxxxx

Hi Sue, a gorgeous card in one of my favourite colours. Another video for me to watch later - so much better on the laptop than the tablet.
Lynda - dianeandchipps posted yesterday thanking everyone that is thinking of her.

Myra P said...

Hi Sue,
I just had to come inside as its very hot today! Good excuse to have a look at your lovely card! It is stunning! I just love it - all of it! Will have so many to try when I get back home tomorrow - all being well. I'm sure I've said this before but I haven't seen a shade of card from Creative Expressions which I did not like. They are all really tasteful colours and when we add Sue magic to that - Bingo - its a winner every time. Thank you Sue, gorgeous card today yet again.
Pat L - so sorry to read that your little granddaughter is unwell. GOSH is the best - and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Txcowgirl - welcome ! It's lovely to have new people join . Sorry you have been unwell. Do hope you are able to get out of bed very soon! Sending a hug!
Lynda - sorry about the horrid nose bleed! Hope you okay now. Hugs on way to you too.
Norah - so thrilled you got something lovely to look forward to. Thanks for your good wishes! x
Pam - Happy Birthday to Jack and Ryan! Have a lovely evening. Thanks for your good wishes too! So pleased you making good progress. x
Thanks too to Janet, June and Sheila - it was a lovely evening and a super memory. So much for which to be thankful.
Sending love to all including - Sandra, Margaret, Anne, June, Wheelybad Bad, Tres, Julie L, Brenda L, Janet, Steph, Lynda , Lynne, Lindsay, TOB Theresa , Frances and Alison . Special hug for Sue!
Love Myra

I do love your videos! The aqua card is so pretty and the shaping of the channel makes for extra interest. I adore this border: it's my fave from your second collection.

Diane Maitland said...

Hello Sue, another wonderful card, I love the effects you used and love the pastel blue. I now have over 100 of your videos and love to watch them, especially when I didn't have internet access in hospital.

Thank you Lynda, I am plodding along. back at Fracture Clinic tomorrow so hope that things are healing well.

Hello Norah, yes I am dianeandchipps, friends with fluffycat. Real name Diane Maitland.

Happy crafting everyone xxxxx

Barbara said...

Lovely card and beautiful colours, haven't tried a split channel yet.
I couldn't wait for your videos every week and watched them all on YouTube but still enjoy watching them again.
TXCOWGIRL welcome to Sues blog and hope you are feeling better.
LYNNE M hope you and hubby are okay and Tilly and Cully are behaving.
NORAH nice to see you back and hope you enjoy making your invites to the party.

Wheely Bad said...

Hi Sue

Oh wow, just amazing. Another die on my list and this after yesterdays beauty too (I just checked back). I think this would work with other dies and EFs too and in many colours. I am gagging to get up that table. I think I'd need to take a flask and a picnic as I'd be there all day lol.

There's so much to say, Pam, wishing Jack & Ryan a happy birthday and I hope you are improving more each day. Sending healing hugs to Pats granddaughter at GOSH, Sandra I put the heating timer on today to give the place a little warmth early in the morning. I try to last til mid October but I was so cold this morning! Lynne M, hubby and fur babies I hope hubby is feeling better and you're all ok, Lindsay I hope you're ok too, i miss the horsey stories too. Lynda, nosebleeds are horrid, I've had more than my fair share and sympathise. A cup of tea and a biscuit works wonders a little while after to perk you up again, Norah, I'd love to visit Scotland one day as my paternal gr.grandparents are Scottish and we are proud of our ancestry. I'm going to do my family tree next year and find out more. I love being a Suffolker too and love the beauty of my home. It's a heck of a lot flatter than Scotland, what you consider a slight bump we call a mountain! Love to you, Rory and the rest of your family.TxCowgirl, best wishes to you and hope you feel better soon. Special hugs to you all.

I'm gaving a much needed quite day. In a bizarre position on my side laying on the sofa as I can't sit or lay down without lots of discomfort. In two days I've been booking interviews with the independent living people and with a cleaner for tomorrow, done a dogwalk Tuesday bouncing around on the dreadful pavements but I do love it and so does Billy. Two car journeys, again not the most happy situation for my spine the yesterday to see the nurse for a certain tri-annual test that involved a certain amount of contortion on my part laying on my side as on my back was out of the question! I'm paying for it all today, with the neck and the back sending their messages of complaint down my arms and legs. More than I've done in months. The dog walk was because Billy had to visit the vet for his jab and after he's very sleepy and clingy. He was a good boy and got a chewy for behaving so well. May have been the young lady vet who kept saying how lovely he is and me giving him treats while he jabbed him. He didn't even sneeze out his kennel cough vaccine. He's curled up behind my legs putting his weight on the back of my legs which he does when my back hurts this much. It feels so nice and eases the pain. He's such a good boy even if he likes a good bark!

Special hugs too for "Our Sue", Janet Ecco, Myra, Maria, Yorkielass Sue, Leo and Skylar, Pams Robbie, Brenda, Theresa and anyone ill or in pain. Hugs to Wilsonettes everywhere and happy crafting.

That'll teach me for not checking my spelling!

Wheely Bad said...

Head like a sieve me!

Julie L, Alison (Alimecca) and Diane M (mystery solved for me too!) Special hugs to all of you and hope you're ok!

You'll have to excuse me. Getting my hugs in for everyone in case I'm not back for a few days again.

Hi Sue, A lovely card, loving the split channel.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Txcowgirl said...

Hi Sue and friends,
Just yesterday I had watched the video on this very card. The die for this is in the order I'm waiting, not to patiently for. So I will try this one right away, I think. So very pretty.
Thank you everyone for the thoughtful comments, it's nice getting to know ya'll (Texan for all of you) a little. BTW, my real name is Dawn, don't know if you ever hear this name over there. After rereading I see another Dawn on the list! Dawn Searle, do you live in England?
Thank you Pam, so looking forward to my shipment. Happy Birthday to your twins. Not sure what "the Close" is, but be careful.
Yorkielass, thank you for the well wishes. This is off subject, but your name brought it to mind. My scrapbooking friend, has a little Yorkie (Yorkshire Terrier), named Yogi, and on Monday she had let him out for his potty break, when suddenly a big hawk swept down grabbed him, flew over her house with him, then dropped him.
He suffered some bad puncture wounds from the talons, and an injury from the fall. He had to have surgery, but is slowly getting well. I had never heard of such a thing before, poor little guy.
Norah, I appreciate your comments, and yes, having the internet, and videos of Sue's have really inspired me. It's very boring if you just have to lay around, so I'm thankful for technology. I also have a Cricut Explore, which they just updated with a new Print and Cut feature, so this gives me time to read up about it. So yes there is a plus side. BTW, my very best friend and neighbor, her name is Nora, also, but without the "h".
Sandra, just have to ask, as I am so curious. What is sole gin, and "pricking the sloes"? Isn't gin a form of alcoholic beverage? Sounds kind of unpleasant.LOL
Myra, thanks for the hugs, love me some hugs! Sorry it's hot there, we are finally cooling off here a bit.
Barbara, thank you for the welcome.
Wheely Bad, appreciate the hello. Please get better, back problems are no fun, and so don't overdo. Thank the Lord we have our furry friends to give us their devotion. Just this year lost my two sweet shelties, Betsy and Amos. Still not ready to start over with new babies, maybe next year.
Thanks Anonymous, almost missed your post, I will let you know when my package from JS gets here. Maybe a while as it has far to travel.
Sorry if I went on to long, but it was nice reading the blog and the comments. Thanks for brightening my day.
Txcowgirl, Dawn

magpie said...

Helloooooo Sue and the Wilsonettes! Gorgeous card and a great video Sue! Wow! I loved the 3d bows card with the Austrian die and the Iced Snow which is my favourite to use for the shiny that I like. I have been doing similar cards only without the bows....that's because I haven't got them...but still happy with what I have! Lol! The Wednesday card giveaway is stunning! The vintage rose and the gorgeous pink with the black heated background was truly awesome! I really do love the Victorian Velvet too....haven't got that either, but I love it! Lol! Good luck to everybody! Todays card is beeeautiful! Another great video Sue x I love the French border, tag and corner die. The corner I've been cutting four and making it as a focal point. That set is so so pretty. Love the Rows of bows EF and the Iced Snow sparkle! I love everything about it Sue. It is so elegant. "Thank you so so much Sue" for your inspiration xx Sending you and your family love and hugs and I hope you are managing to get a bit of rest after your marathon of wonderful cards and shows at Ally Pally! xx Pam, "Happy birthday" to Jack and Ryan! Sheila, hope you get this stunning set of dies on your birthday, Saturday! Hope you've left your list hanging around accidently....oh, how did that get there...? lol! Crafty Nanna, hope your husband is feeling better? Maggie's daughter, "happy 18th birthday" to you, get well soon xx Norah, Wonderful about your nephew and his bride to be after being together for 15 years. How romantic xx Wheelybad, thinking of you xx Lynne, Yorkielass, Lynda, Cheryl and thinking of and sending love and hugs to all our Wilsonettes who need some. take care everyone xx Love Karen xx

Karen Knight said...

Hi Sue, what a pretty and elegant creation you have for us today. Ribbons, bows, sparkle - what more could a girl ask for?! Have not signed in for a while as I have been away on my hols and just got back. Was in a villa up in the mountains - internet, electricity and water were all in sporadic supply!!! I thought 'buffering' was a thing of the past but ooooh no! Just trying to connect was painful to say the least!! I returned home to find my C&C weekender had been delivered and the first thing I did was cut out the angel... she is stunning!! My Christmas cards this year have gone to a whole other level. Thanks for bringing us such wonderful products. Hugs to all. Karen xx

Good Evening, Sue and Wilsonettes.
I loved this card when you first show cased it as part of the new Die collections Launch. I have all the ingredients for this one :-)

I've missed posting the last two days, as I was busy packing, taking 'Fur Babies' to kennels, travelling etc.
Will play catch up.

Hugs to everyone.

Take care everyone.
