In My Thoughts Always

Good Sunday morning all!   The Tethered Heart striplet has been used in a double channel style card for today's post.  To begin, I embossed a piece of coconut white card using the Art Deco Fanfare embossing folder.  I cut it into three strips (they were roughly about
1 1/2" wide strips).  I added mounting foam to the backs of all the strips. I mounted the strips on a piece of teal card, leaving a gap between each that was just slightly more narrow than the striplets.
 Next I cut two of
the Tethered Hearts striplets and
glued them into place spanning across the channel area, just catching the edges of the striplets on to the embossed strips.  I stamped my sentiments in black Archival ink and cut it out with the Austrian tag.  I inked through the die with Peacock Feather distress ink before removing it.  I seated the tag on an oval cut from teal card.  I added the sentiment tag in the middle of the two striplets.  I completed the card with a double white mat layer.  On the inside mat, I added Cosmic Shimmer white PVA glue dots all the way around to frame the card.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  9" in size.

GM Sue - love this and I have all the ingredients to have a go myself after the Ccards are done! Saw your latest feature in Simply Cards & Papercraft Mag Issue 131 - love the cards you did here and the layers measurements are also helpful. Well the house deep clean is done and the xmas decs are going up today - the hubby and I always have differences of opinion when decorating the house - he wants all our 27 years of x-mas decs up at the same time it seems! whereas I have the less is more philosophy - mmmmm..... could be an interesting day. Happy Sunday all

Sunday smiles to you Sue. Happy Sunday to all. Congrats to all winners, enjoy your gift : )

What a lovely choice of colour today Sue, it show's through your beautiful striplets a treat, I agree with nancyd with regards to your photography, the close up's are lovely.
Well after an awful day home alone yesterday, today is another day ! So with a minimal amount of crafting done (due to a fretful daddy's girl dog) today has to be head down and crack on, but with a fight with her car harness, and been litterally 'dragged' round the park I must admit to hurting some what ! Such is life.
So to my dear friends that also feel they have been in the wrestling ring I send you gentle hugs and hope you feel better as the day goes on. On the plus side my new Sue dies are waiting my collection from 'our craft shop' on the down side, I cant bring them to their new home till Tuesday, boohoo.
Sending love to you Sue and all that Parti on here today.

Anne Crawford said...

Lovely card! I love the Art Deco EB , I ordered the Bevelled Glass striplet and the Córdoba die yesterday , I know they are from previous collections but they have been on my wish list for ages so I thought I would have an extra Christmas present for Iain to give me ! I ordered from Icon , thanks Norah , they had the best price.
Also ordered 7" cards from Anna Marie as she has a special offer on linen effect cards, pity about the postage but she usually puts a wee extra in which is a nice touch!
Well we had great fun with Sandy yesterday, he was just so excited the whole day and announced he was the leader and would tell us what to do , we have the tree and decorations up but still a wee bit more to do ( always glad when I can just sit and admire it )
Love and Hugs to all xo

Congratulations to all the winners.....xxxx

Happy Sunday morning Sue,

Now I wouldn't have dared to put two such busy patterns together but it works!....maybe because you've used the Fanfare folder "upside down" to mirror the heart shapes in the striplet - not that there's a right way or a wrong way with this folder...great card and another idea to try...

Congrats to all comment game winners...


Marion Bull said...

Well I like all your cards Sue, some more than others but this one today is breathtaking! How beautify are these striplet dies I need (not want) them all! Happy Sunday everyone.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
You really know how to start the day off with a bang Sue. Today's gift is just one example of that. Not only using your beautiful Teal card -which I treasure every bit of-but use one of my favourite efolders and then to finish off your beautiful beautiful Heart Striplet. Who could ask for more!!!

Sandra - I always talk to both my parents. I think it's just a natural thing to do and besides loved ones never leave us while you think/remember them. They are always with me. Re Acupuncture I have an apptment with a clinical technician (whatever that title means)on 10th Dec who will show me how to use a TENSE machine. I thought hard about acupuncture/TENSE and came down on tense. So I have everything crossed that it will help.
I totally agree with you re parking spaces. In France the notices at the end of the disabled spaces says 'take my space; take my disability' I think we should do the same.

Well I'm off to visit my eldest daughter for the day. I believe she has a new lodger (a poorly Owl who has fallen down a chimney.

Congratulations to all you very lucky winners.
Hope everyone under the weather feels better very soon. To all please take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

barbiepinkfairy said...

Lovely technique! Must try this one. Hopefully quite a quick card to do!

Happy Sunday to all. Worked until 2 am so good to escape at that time in fact 5 hours is enough for me these days when people want to see a doctor because " my brains frozen and I can feel blood rushing around my body" my face says it all!

Hoping to get some crafting done a friend has just called around and seen the post box I have done for my daughters classroom and the shelves I have done for her teachers desk and as a teacher herself wants some too! Nice to be appreciated but the to do list gets longer!

Well must go. See you all tomorrow!

Love and hugs to all :

Steph hope you recover soon and dies are waiting so you need to be fighting fit!
Tandy: don't let bullies get to you you are worth more than that,
Gail: so sorry to hear about your husband what a year you have had but you still contribute on here. Hopefully we will give you some sanity as your journey continues
Cheryl good luck with your ongoing treatment.

See you all tomorrow xxx

Thanks as usual for the inspiration. Happy Sunday everyone.
Lots of love

Sandra said...

Good morning Sue & friends,
You can't go far wrong with a Striplet Die and some peacock feathers Distresss inks! Lovely card Sue xxx
Janet, good luck with the 'Tens' machine, I have used them before, first time when I was in labour with my son (now 22), then again while pregnant with the girls, thee first time was more successful, by the time I had through girls my back/pelvis had deteriorated so much the nerves were all damaged, so the Tens didn't really work, I didn't understand about the nerve pathway until I gad my second hip surgery, I gad been in theatre for 8+ hours while they struggled to remove the dialed joint and try and rebuild my pelvis! they decided that the best form of pain relief would be to give me an Epidural while under anaesthetic, I was bought round from surgery having had only the epidural for pain relief to discover that it didn't work, because of the extent of nerve damage the epidural hadn't worked, I think they could hear my screams 40 miles away! Waking up to full pain of an 8 hour reconstruction operation with no pain relief is a nightmare that will haunt me for many years!
I can honestly say I have given acupuncture a try and it really hasn't worked, so I think we can tick that off the list, I think that they are running out of options!
I think today will mostly be playing with my new dies that arrived yesterday !
Steph, I hope you have a better day today x
I best go get organised ,
Crafty hugs to all,
Sandra xxxx

Rose in Chester said...

sue and the wonderful Wilsonetts can you help me, I wonder when you get your dies for the first time what do you do, do you cut them all out of copy paper and keep them with the dies,
as I get new dies I forget about my other older dies and I find it hard not knowing what dies I have, and there not getting use, as there at the bottom of the pale,
I need some sort of reference,
Any ideas will be much appreciated many thanks Julie xx

TOB said...

Wow Sue love this card. It's different,in, that the die is not just channelled into the paper instead I love the way you have cut the paper and then set the die cut over it. I will be trying this one.

Stunned to see I am a winner today. I have been without Internet all day and am now resorting to trying out my mobile phone for access! I'm not very techno savy. Today's card is another winner, I love the striplets and the ways you use them. Thanks for the opportunity to take part in the draw. Congratulations to all the other winners

Hi Sue. This card is totally, utterly super cool! I love the blue card you've used for the backing and the way you use your striplet dies always fascinates me. I have some on my ever elongating wish list :). As always, thanks for sharing with us and congrats to this weeks lucky winners. x

Hi Sue
A bit late today as had the family for the day! It's wonderful but can be tiring , particularly when the children want to craft as well!
Today's card is beautiful and I just love your striplet dies. They are so very useful and versatile . Love the teal and white.
Julie - My dies are all on magnetic sheets in boxes and each box has a list on the front of its contents. I have all my Christmas dies in the same box as they are not used all year. Hope this helps a little. x
Love to all,
Myra xx
