Oh Sue, this is so lovely - totally elegant and understated. You always give us fresh ideas - would never have thought of using the ivy dies almost as a striplet. Just gorgeous. As you say, suitable for many occasions. Really must have a shot at using gilding waxes, such a pretty, delicate touch.
Thank you for another great video.

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
What a truly elegant card you've given us today it's right up my street. I love the way you've trailed the ivy across the aperture, and this embossing folder is on my 'I need' list which seems to growing from a list to a book lol. The video is easy to follow so that we can replicate this card thank you for that.
It's freezing here so I'm wrapping up warm because I'm off Christmas shopping today.
Sending you a hug Cheryl

Hi Sue and all Wilsonettes. Beautiful. I know a fairy that will love this ! I have 2 ivy die cuts on my work table, maybe it wont work so well with 2 but you've planted an idea in my head for the holly sprigs so thank you. I seem to using everyone's crafty idea's at the moment and not using my brain enough! Mr Lancashire had a very heavy parcel delivered yesterday, and what can be heavier than dies me thinks ?? Ive never wanted my birthday as much as I do this year lol.
I love video days, but have been meaning to say how terrific this seasons photographs have been, so deep and close up.
Well done for reaching your next target, its a pitty a lot more of those numbers dont join in and enjoy getting to know us Wilsonettes !
Well my basket of loving caring hugs is over flowing so please help yourself if you feel the need.
Please stay warm and safe if you are going out today, little miss 4 paws had to tip toe this morning or Mr Lancashire would have hit the deck its so icy up here, thank goodness the cats and birds had a lie in !!
Sending love to all.

lilian said...

Hi Sue & All, lovely card today, as someone suggested already going to try with the holly dies. No frost here in Cornwall today but still a very cold wind. Lilian.

PS. I dont comment every day because my hands do not always work well in the mornings and can't always prove I'm not a robot! eyes not too good either ( age thing thank goodness for craft).

Saba said...

Hi Sue
Love the card and the video is so informative as usual. I love the Eternal Rings Striplet and to use the outside cutting edge on its own makes it a " crafting essential".
I would never have thought to use it to produce an alternative Striplet look. And the little gap you left where the sentiment would go - only you would have the foresight to do that.
Thank you so much for all your inspiration. I want to go and play with my Eternal Rings edge now but have to go christmas shopping instead.

karenlotty said...

Lovely card I think I love yor latest collections the most because they're contemporary and can be used for make cards too

Anonymous said...

Morning Sue. Thanks for a great video. I think this is a very classy and elegant card and as you said could be used for many occasions. This is right up my street will be making this one but will have to wait till after christmas as hubby has hidden my christmas pressies so i cant have a sneaky play LOL. Have a safe journey home and i hope you have got your winter woolies on as it is a bit nippy outside.
Best Wishes.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Elegant is certainly the word for today's gift. White/white with a little hint of colour what more could anyone want on their special day!!
As you say it could be used for any occasion and even for those pesky males in our lives.

Sandra - have a lovely day crafting with Mrs B.
Norah - hugs are on their way for you.
Steph - keep your fingers warm and ready for crafting.

Well it's my knit and natter day and my turn to demo. So off to make sure that all eight sets have everything in them. I dread getting there and finding that one file is missing a piece. You'd think that after all these years I wouldn't panic but I still do especially if there are lots of pieces.

Wrap up warm everyone it's cold outside. To all under the weather for whatever reason hoping you feel better soon. To everyone take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

Diane said...

Hi Sue this card is really beautiful , the ivy dies are on my must have list for Christmas and I dropped a large hint at the weekend how great they would look with the pine bough and holly! I had a chuckle whilst watching the video. I was using gilding wax yesterday and was adding blending solution to some that had gone hard so had taken the lids off all the pots. Well I put them ann back on but couldn't work out which gold was which! Now I know. My lounge smells lovely today (note to self polish more and do housework not craft!). Really cold here this morning, had to scrape the car before taking my daughter to the station. Stay warm everyone. Take care Sue on your journey home. Love Diane G xxx
Ps thank you Sue for including the stamp set names. It's good to know which ones you use.
Anne C enjoy your game of mahjong and stay safe and warm xxxx
Steph keep warm too xxx
Lilian it's lovely to see you comment when you can xxx

Maureen Killen said...

Good morning Sue, and all the ladies.
I've got to say that this card is so stylishly elegant. Absolutely gorgeous and the video is so explanatory which is great.
Well, it's winter drawers on up here, I'll have to get some of the red silk ones my mother used to wear which came down to the knee and were elasticated!!
Anne - enjoy the Majong at the 19th.
Steph - lucky you, I give George hints galore but they go in one ear and out of the other!
Everyone, stay warm, look after yourselves and have as good a day as you can.
Sue - safe trip home xx

Have a safe night everyone.

Hi Sue,
getting worried now - could have sworn I left a comment this morning!
Can't find it now so here it is again - or similar, anyways.
It's a lovely, lovely card, so elegant. And as I have all the ingredients, will give it a go.
Thank you for brightening up a dull morning.
Hugs, Rose

Hi, Sue have watched the video now. I've ordered the beautiful Trailing Blossoms EB and the two new striplets with Ben at SET and should have them in the next day or two, so will have to have a go at creating this card : - )

Hugs, Angela in S. Wales Xx
