Double Die Cutting



Hi crafters!  Today's video really shows you how to get the most out of the Austrian border die!  You may not have thought that you could do this so it is a really good video to watch to give you more ideas for your dies.  I hope you enjoy it!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue

Love aqua and white and this card is gorgeous. I have the Austrian border set but think the daisies must be next off the wish list,

Beautiful day here today and the first day of driving and wearing shoes since surgery 6 week ago, such a good lesson not to take simple things for granted, it was even exciting to go to the supermarket !

Have a great day,

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
I love today's card so much that I watched the video twice! Lol. Although I love that shape die you've used for the frame, I can't find anywhere that sells it so I have used other dies and it looks great. How clever to cut the edge off your border die it is so pretty done that way. I couldn't sleep last night so I've been watching your videos on YouTube you have some amazing tecniques on there.

Hugs all round.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Today's gift is certainly a winner and I defy anyone not to like/love it if it came through their letterbox.
Your format and colours for today are just exquisite so gentle so gentle on the eyes. I shall certainly be trying to do this today.

Pam & Sandra - where are you. Am now worried. Hope you're both OK.
Wheelybad - so pleased that your new PA is a crafter. I can just see both of you round a table creating (in both senses of the word).lol.
Norah - do you still follow tradition at weddings by having a chimney sweep and presenting the bride and groom with a decorated rolling pin and wooden spoon?

Has to be a full crafting day as I've got two birthday cards to do and still loads of Seasonal cards.
Hope all under the weather feel better soon. To all take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

Hi Sue,
Beautiful card today such a pretty card and love the colour. Will watch the video a bit later on.
Pam missing you, hope you're ok. Muriel pleased you're able to be out and about and hope the driving goes well! CraftySue, thank you for your best wishes for my aunt. Sandra, hope you're ok too. Lynne and Lindsay , missing you both as well and hope you are both ok. Off to a reunion today of staff from school who've retired so that should be nice. Very civilised in a garden centre coffee shop - hope they're ready for us - there could be about 30 of us! It was a lovely staff room as we were all about the same age and had the same staff for years and years so were all really close friends. Quite unusual for a comp as there is usually quite a high turnover of staff. Hope everyone has a lovely day and sending love and hugs to all of my Wilsonette family. Love Alison xxx

Hi Sue. What a beautiful card. I love how you have used the border as the background.
You have made it so easy to trim the edge from this border die, that is all down to your hard work when designing your dies. Thank you : )
Pam, I do hope that you are ok, really worried now that you haven't commented for 3 days.
Sending my daily hugs to everyone. Take care.

Morning Sue and friends. I adore the aqua card its so delicate and soothing, the ice snow lifts its purity and delicacy even more. If I ever received a replica of this id spend all my day just watching the light bounce from the central background, its just one of those W.O.W cards I adore of your's (Wonder Of Wilson) for the newbies.
Your blog still wants to know if Im a robot which has only recently happened,but Im finding that with Kim's blog and other's all for the first time, so Im thinking is it changes that Blogger have made ?! Have you ladies had the same experiance ? I know CE always ask. In reply - more like the Tin Man let alone robot : ) !!!
I must try this with my French border die - wiggle it just a little bit (blast from the past there) I asked Sue some time ago about the Spellbinder Grand Frame,and its been 'put to bed' it was tired and needed a rest, so Heather, unless you can find it elswhere in cyber world Im not sure you will find it in 'craft world' forgive me if Im wrong.

Like everyone else Im concerned about our Pam,then I thought, is it near the anniversary and with all she's gone through, she maybe feeling low, but if anyone is in contact please tell her we miss her so much, thanks.

If I could have one wish today it would be to give everyone a day without pain and/or sorrow.
Love you.

Sandra said...

Good morning Sue & friends,
Gorgeous card today Sue, the best colour combination in my opinion and love the dies you have used too, I will watch video in a few mins, hugs as you prepare to fly back home xxx
Sorry ladies for worrying you, I was exhausted yesterday, we had a very busy weekend with the 'in laws' being here, then hospital Monday with Lucy, and an amazing crafting day with my lovely friends Pat & Sue on Tuesday, for some odd reason my stupid hip has taken to dislocating at any given time which is getting me down a little, Lucy's hospital visit was a little frustrating too, they apparently can do no more for the double vision, the have given her some exercises as last resort, the only other option is to have an 'occlusive' lens in one eye,so that she only gas the use of one eye, I hardly think that is a solution for a 14 year old girl! So all in all I am a little wiped out.
Pam I hope you are well, hurry back you are missed greatly, hugs xxx
Cameeli, Janet, Jess and everyone else so sorry to worry you and thanks so much for caring xxxxx
Enjoy your craft day Janet, would love to see your creations x
Well I am off to watch the video now!
Lynda, should be sending your envelope today hopefully, thank you again!
Crafty hugs to each and everyone of you angels,

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and Wilsonette Angels,
What a beautiful delicate card you have done today with beautiful colours making up the final masterpiece. I love the paleness of the blue and against the white it really does work. A card that would look lovely shining down from anyone's mantlepiece. thank you Sue for another WOW that is well deserving of it's wow status.
Alison, i am sorry that your beloved Aunt is going through a rough patch again. Some people come into our lives and we are the fortunate ones to have known them as they are so special, and i knew that Auntie was one of them with the sunshine that comes radiating off you when you speak about her. Sending hugs, thoughts and prayers to your very special lady. Have a lovely lunch out today with all your old "school" friends and remember to walk, not run and keep the voices down. LOL.
Muriel, i am so happy for you getting back your independence, but it must have been bad that you find going to the supermarket exciting. I wish you many happy hours in your wee car. I hope that your foot is now feeling better and more like itself after it's op.
No Janet, as trying to find a chimney sweep is hard but i always give a rolling pin to a new bride and a good heavy frying pan just because if their multi uses and in saying that i leave the usage up to your own imagination, like battering ..... meat to tenderize it( you thought i was going to be bad and tenderize the new groom, but i wasn't honestly with my wee halo slipping further and further).
Tres, sorry you have been having a hard time again and i hope your hubby had a lovely day yesterday for his birthday. October is a bad month for birthday's for me as well.
Welcome Janine to the Wilsonettes, i am glad that you have started back crafting as it is a wonderful stress releaser, time filler and builder of skills and confidence. Glad to see that you are not letting the stroke beat you and crafting is a great therapy for exercising various parts that went on strike with the stroke. I hope you find many happy hours again back crafting and come and meet all the lovely people in here that are just waiting to be friends.
Tina flower, i don't know how but i missed our birthday. I hope that you had a lovely day and got some lovely things. Isn't it lovely to be 21 again with years of experience.
Dawn, oh how i just wanted to cry when i read your post yesterday about your friend, such a young woman with the vibrancy knocked out of her by a terrible disease. sending you lovely friend gentle healing hugs with a wee prayer that she gets a transplant soon.
I think we are going to have to do a round up with Shep the sheepdog to gather in all our strays and stragglers as we have been abandoned by our two latest members Pam who the top of the morning is not the same and Sandra who went to the eye clinic with the wee lass and hasn't been seen since. Please come home ladies, Lynne, Lindsay, Pam, Sandra and all other friends you have disappeared without a trace. The searchers are out with their torches looking for you all, but sending hugs to you and take care, come back soon. I think while the search party is out i will get them to find my hills today as they have done a disappearance act on me as well. i am typing this with my eyes shut trying to keep them open and they are refusing to cooperate. I can see that it is going to be one of those days that i am going to be making friends with my settee all day, s i will wish you all have a lovely day with the sun shining from within if it can't shine outside, with hugs to all my Angels where ever you are.
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Pat L said...

Hi Sue
Beautiful, elegant card, love the colour, design and the gorgeous daisies. Thanks for the video too i look forward to crafting along with you when life gets back to normal.

Hugs and best wishes to everyone

Joanna Dickson said...

Good morning from a very dull and damp Blackpool.
I really like the colours in this card it's so fresh. I seem to be having problems with my comments. I've noticed this having more frequently but I post everyday unless I've mentioned being away but they aren't always publishing. Strange. I've started checking as yesterday's isn't showing and I left my comment around 7.30 ish. Anyway not to worry. Today's card looks so fresh. I also love the frame die but they are impossible to find now. Maybe they could be a new range for you Sue on one of your future releases.
Hope you all stay as well as possible and warm.
Lots of love
Jo xx

Good morning Sue - I haven't watched the video yet but this card is simply gorgeous - the aqua is a beautiful colour and I think I need it so I can try to copy your design.
Have been reading the comments and like many others I am concerned about you Pam. I hope all is okay. I also am missing news of how Robbie is getting on.
It is amazing how much of a family everyone becomes and reading everyones thoughts and concerns and troubles puts your own very much in perspective.
Must go now as I have to pick my menu for the Lady Dog Walkers Christmas meal (husband is most upset he can't come - I tell him the clue is in the title). Hope every one of you has a good day. Take care all Helen K xx

Hi Sue,
I haven't watched the video as yet as it's a bit chaotic here this morning . I love the colours and have just got the die so looking forward to seeing exactly what you have done. The daisies are gorgeous.
Pam - thinking of you. You have had so much to deal with in the last year. Sending love to you. x

Sandra - so pleased to see you back with us. Sorry the medics were not more helpful. I guess sometimes things are not so easy to fix but this is hard in one so young. Hard for Mum and Dad too. x
Norah - do you still have a Show of Presents before weddings in Scotland? We did in my day but that was a very long time ago! Just wondered if it still happened today. It was so much work and very tiring for Mum of the bride.
Muriel - so pleased you have got your freedom to roam back! Enjoy.
Dawn - so sorry to hear about your friend will add my prayer to the others for a transplant donor to be found very soon.
Alison - hope you have a lovely time meeting up with your friends for coffee.
Brenda - so sorry you not feeling so well. Hope you are a bit better today. Sending hugs to you. x
Anne - thinking of you too. Hope your husband Iain is still making good progress. Take care.
Love to all, particularly if you are suffering pain or just feeling alone.

This card is absolutely lovely and a great video showing exactly how to achieve it. The idea for embossing the frame is inspired. Thank you Sue.

Alimecca-Alison, have a great time at your reunion and don't all try to talk at once!!
Sandra, sorry hospital visit didn't go so well and that your hip is giving you so much trouble. I'll be in touch in a day or two.
Janet, hope you manage to finish your b cards. I've done all my c cards except for the "holy" ones and I'm stuck for ideas at the moment. I may do pergamano.
Pam, I do hope you are ok and that you'll soon be back with us.
Love to everyone and I hope that you all have as good a day as you can.

Hi Sue, yet another stunning card for us today! Every time I see the daisies I get to love them more and more...they have now found their way to the top of my die wish list...both sets :).

Thanks once again for the inspiration.

Hi Sue. WOW, WOW, WOW !! What a fab video, and what a gorgeous card !! I love the way you have used the Austrian Border dies. How clever !! I would never have thought of that !! I love the grand dies you have used but they seem impossible to get hold of now. Such a shame. I love the Aqua colour card stock and it is one of my favourite colours to use. The ice snow glitter, I just could not do without and I really love your fab faux quilled leaves and beautiful new Daisy Dies. This card is just Sooo beautiful Sue and another definite must for my "to do" list. Thank you so much for sharing it with us today, it is stunning.
Sending you lots of love today Sue, love from Tres x x x

Pam, I am missing you loads. It is not the same without you at the top of the blog comments. I hope you are ok. Sending you and Robbie lots of love from Tres x x x

Lynne M and Lindsey, I am missing you both loads to. I hope you are both ok. Sending you lots of love from Tres x x x

To all the Wonderful Wilsonette's, sending everyone lots of love today love from Tres x x x

Late for me today Sue, didn't want to comment until had seen video - and such a good one, thank you. Been using your frame method and, as you say, easy-easy!! Would love those label dies, though, just have plain rectangles and circles - okay, but could do with the extra these bring. Altogether a lovely card, and lots of extra tips.

Julie Laz -like your new picture - how are the dogs?
Missing Pam - hugs, whatever is happening.
All of our missing people, and now Tina E - for so long part of our lives and now not around any more. I remember Sue saying how upsetting it was for friends of long standing to just disappear from the blog and many of us feel that as well. Come back please or send a message!!!!

Brenda Lello said...

Hello Sue,
Thank you for yet another brilliant video, thank you for taking the time to show us how to create this lovely frame. The card is stunning, when I first saw it I thought you'd used one of your background dies, not a border die, WOW you are so inspirational Sue.
Take care, love Brenda xxx

Sandra, hope Lucy is coping after the disappointing response from the hospital. She is so young to have to live with this problem. Sorry about your hip, hope it gets sorted out soon.
Myra, thank you, had a rough night, and feel really grotty, so not planning to do very much at all today ...........I started this comment before lunchtime, had lunch - sat down for a few minutes......... Three hours later ........ oh well there's always tomorrow!!!

Norah, love reading your comments, today's really made me smile, hubby gets worried when I take the rolling pin from the draw.

magpie said...

Helloooo Sue and the Wilsonettes! Sue, the sentiment to this card was thought of just for you! Thank you so much for the wonderful videos that you take the time to do. The card is gorgeous and what a lovely effect from embossing the dies first and then removing two to make the frame. Love the colour and I can honestly say those Delicate daisies are gorgeous. What a great way of using the border as a background by turning it around so it cuts off the edge! Brilliant! "Thank you Sue". Also a beautiful card for whoever is the winner of the Wednesday card giveaway! As always! xx Sending love and hugs to you and your family Sue xx Also sending love and hugs to all our Wilsonettes who are in need xx Take care everybody xx Love Karen xx

Maria Alder said...

Beautiful card Sue and I actually have all the dies to be able to make this card. Thank you for showing us a very inventive way to use your die as a background and for all the inspiration you provide.

Maureen B. said...

Sue I reckon the sentiment on this card is made just for you. the card is amazing and the video makes it all so clear. Lets hope my very amateur skills can come someway to making something which may or may not(most probable!) bear some resemblance to the super card you have shown us today. Thank you as always and please keep on motivating us with your enthusiasm and creativity, what would we do without you? Many hugs Maureen

Tina Eldridge said...

Hi Sue,
I love how you have used the border die to create a background.
Thank you for showing us that technique.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a truly beautiful card and a great video full of tips and techniques. I hadn't realised the border die would do what you did - I would have been cutting it out by hand! So clever. Now my daisies have arrived I have everything I need to replicate (sort of, anyway) this card and I'm glad to see you treat your leaves the same way as I do :-)
To all of those going to the SECC this week-end, enjoy yourselves and have fun spending lol.
Frances

Darlene4527 said...

barbara macaskill said...

The colors on this card are so soft and serene looking! Am going to have to watch the video in the morning because it is 12:30am and hubby needs to get to bed! LOE this card and will see you in the morning! TFS!

Marianne's Craftroom said...

Wow love the icy feel to thsi one, gorgeous flowers and ise of the die

AnneRD said...

A very informative video Sue. The technique for getting an embossed border is so useful to know, and good to see it being demonstrated, as is the way you have trimmed back the lace border. I like the colour combination on this one. Anne x

Marianna Hammer said...

Thank you for another wonderful video. The card is stunning and you are entertaining as always. I lov it :)

Pat S Witney said...

Hi Sue
another stunner today. I love this colour combination, and how you have used the border die. Will watch the video late.
Sorry you not feeling to good Sandra, special hugs for you today.
Hugs to everyone who needs one today.
