Layered Lavender

Hi bloggers!  Today's video card is a simply stunning look in lavender!  A bit of stamping to add interest, and an all around easy card to replicate!  It's a short video too which is great for those of you with tight schedules.  I hope you like it!

Buy from Joanna Sheen

The finished dimensions are 8" x 8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Not quite to my taste but I do like the stamping around the edges xxxx

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
What a fabulous card you've given us this morning. I've just watched the video and seen how easy it is to make. Your right the dies do all the work for you. I love how you've used the corners it enhances an already beautiful die. I forget to use my smaller stamps in this way thanks for reminding me. Lavender is such a pretty colour especially when it's with white.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

Morning Sue
What a beautiful gift to start a very dark and cold morning and in your lovely craft room too.
Today's gift has all the combinations anyone could want; lavender in colour; beautiful dies and just that touch of 'Sue Wilson'. Who could ask for more!!
As you say a very generic piece of art and definitely one which has gone into my 'must do' file.

Now; my day yesterday trying to make candles with candle wax that I'd got from burned out candles went not too bad to say that it was the first time I'd tried to work with wax. I was surprised just how small the amount of melted wax I got from the mountain of solid I had but I got three medium sized pots. The thing I didn't do was to save some liquid to top up as the candles cooled down leaving a dent in the middle but I'll know next time. Now the only thing to do is light one and keep fingers crossed that they burn ok.
Well after that it's back to what I know and so it's a paper crafting day. I'ved started my G.Grand-daughter's first year book so have to continue with that and hopefully do better with that.

Norah - missed you yesterday - hope all's well with you and yours and that Kirsten got the keys to her new house OK.
Sandra - Yes I do remember the programme 'The Good Life' and thoroughly enjoyed it. I have to admit that I do like to find a new life for things which have come to the end of their current lives if possible. Perhaps it's because of how I was brought up where things had to be re-used because of the lack of money. I'm sure that's where my eldest daughter gets her ways from as she tries to find a use or a home for just about everything. Not a bad way to live I think.

I hope everyone is managing to keep warm and dry having seen some of the pics of the weather you're having. I'm certainly better here. It may be bitterly cold and not getting above freezing with some winds but we have not had any snow yet. (perhaps I souldn't have said that)lol.

To anyone suffering or in pain I hope your day gets better. To everyone please take care when out and about and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

carol edwards said...

Morning Sue, Pam and all Wilsonettes such a beautiful card today, I will be watching the video in a minute but the colours and design are gorgeous, can't wait to try this one. I so wished I had your talent.

Have a great Thursday everyone, stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs June Smith xxx

Gorgeous card, Sue, at first glance thought uh oh - another of Sue's lovely pieces of matching patterned paper but NO as the video showed, and it's created a really lovely edging to the background. The frame is also inspired with it's extra corners added. Altogether just lovely.

'P' in Wales

Pam, good to see you at number 1!

Hello Sue,

Another fantastic card. Jo is ordering the New York squares for me.


karenlotty said...

Love it Lilacs are my favourite coloured in the pastel palette At first glance I felt it'd make a stunning Christmas card - I saw it as a snowflake (Christmas in January what am I doing!) Will watch later - I'm on my way to work now

TOB said...

Wow Sue I adore this card. Before I saw the video I thought you had used patterned paper for the backing, silly girl I am, I should have known it was embossing powder,(In the silly corner for me this morning).
Thank you for all your comments yesterday I am going to the Drs this afternoon so hopefully I will get a date for the ultrasound for my shoulder.
Didn't get to knit and natter yesterday as I was too scared of slipping on the ice.
Please be careful everyone if you
are going out it's so horrible out there.
Warm hugs to all. Love Theresa xx

An amazing card,lovely colours.

Muriel Kelly said...

Hi Sue and all

I can't believe how your dies go together in so many lovely combinations, this card is beautiful and as you said so generic.
I feel for you all in the freezing cold and rain, keep warm and safe, I am not a winter person even in Oz. We are having a really hot humid summer here, like having our humid February weather since early December, quite draining.

Diane said...

Hi Sue
Loving this colour combination today and extending the dies with corners. What a great idea. I like the twisted dies for the sentiment too, must keep that one squirrelled away for later use. It has been a really windy night here so I think a quiet day crafting is on the cards. Take care everyone. Love Diane G xxx

Good morning Sue, I love lavender, the flower as well as its colour, so to stamp those beautiful little flowers to be a border to lavender card is such a bonus for me. I have these stamps yet not used that beautiful cluster, I will address that very soon. Thank you for all of your work.

Good morning Sue,

Beautiful card today - love all the lacy textures going on and it's good to see some of the New Yorkers in action live as I'm still trying to decide which ones I need first...

btw, that oriental flower/chickenwire top you're wearing would make a lovely background die!...who owns the copyright?

Hi Sue

What a very pretty card, I do love lilac. My prize arrived yesterday afternoon. Thank you very much and please pass on my thanks to Creative Expressions.

I thought I'd stop in now as my PA and I have a few little tasks to do today. Although there's a little sun peeping through the clouds I'd rather go back to sleep. A meeting with the kettle is in order...

Have a good day everyone. Take care if you're out and it's icy or snowy. Kind of weather to stay in the warm and craft!

Hugs all round, extra available if they're needed.

Saba said...

Hi Sue,
Thank you for a very informative video explaining how you made this lavender beauty. I Especially liked the way you mounted up your sentiment and then trimmed off the excess, I had one of those -:"why didn't I think of that" moments when I watched you do this. That's one of the reasons we all love watching your videos, whatever level of crafter we are, there is always something new to learn from watching you. So thank you for sharing.
The card is gorgeous and I did have a go at emulating it when you showed it on your November launch, but now, having watched the video I think I will have another go and see if I can improve on my first attempt.

Loving hugs for all in need of one.

A few days ago I thanked you for making me smile each time I open your lovely blog. Today I thank you again for making me smile. You bring so much happiness and joy back into my life Sue. I look forward to getting up and walking into Particraft to see what is waiting, I so enjoy the video days and have learnt so much.
Your blog has also bought me happiness and joy with all the lovely ladies Ive found along the way, they are all so talanted Sue, and a lot of it is down to you and the inspiration and help you give.
So not only do your cards make me smile everyday, so do the friends you have helped me find.
Thank you.
Love to all this Thursday. Stay warm and as happy as you can.
Love you.

Bejay Roles said...

Hi Sue, First of all I have to say that when you smile on the intro to your videos it's like the sun coming out...very welcome with today's weather down here in the south-west and for most of the rest of the UK too.
I love this card, it's so pretty. The lavender card is such a great shade, I think I need to hop over to Joanna's website and check out the different colours she's time I started using some better quality card stock :). As always, thanks so much for sharing with us. x

Norah McPhee said...

Good afternoon Sue and the wonderful Wilsonettes,
this is so pretty today Sue, so delicate looking and in such a pretty colour scheme. What you could do to this card to make it suit a special occasion or in a particular colour favourite with the person to make it personal to them. Thank you Sue for bringing another beauty to us today.
You know how we never make a mistake just a crafty inspiration well i think that was me last night. I had taken a topper out of one of my Hunkydory kits and the background card to match and had a brainwave. So i cut the sentiment out of the topper and mounted it on gold and then had it standing proud of the topper which i put on foam squares as well and added it to a third of the background card and this is where the brain failed considerable as i didn't cut down the length of the background and when i put 4 of the New York corners on with the borders, it wont fit in an envelope OR on a card base as it is too big, so i cut a piece of white card and stuck it on the back of my work of Norah and made it into a little wall plaque instead. Not quite the card i had intended but it would have been a shame to waste it as it looked so pretty. Ok everyone, i've owned up to my disaster, how about you? I was too tired to start over afterwards so the card is still not made. It was nice to wake up this morning with no baked alaska for hills like i have had for the last few days. Made me wonder how you can bake ice cream in an oven without it melting on you, answers please on a postcard to the Glenochil Yokel. See the random thoughts that go through this mind of mine on a daily basis and sometimes i just don't know what starts them off on the road.
I'll tell you Mrs B, it must be one of the few times that his mind has wandered in my direction in a long while as normal he can't understand how i can be so tired or sore.
Kirsten is getting stuck in today again with her MIL who has taken the day of her work to help. She came home to borrow one of her dad's hammers(I didn't ask)but i did warn her not to use it on her FIL as in her words doing her nut in. She is wondering who promoted him to chief gaffer of works. He had come in on his lunch break to be director of operations and hover over Kirsten and his wife Marie to the point the pair of them told to go back to his work out of their road before they got taken up for spousal battery charges. He is trying to tell my Kirsten how she doesn't need to do this and that as it just creates more work, only Kirsten was far too long in her granny, grampa and my company to take any notice and do things the lazy way as she knows that it would just need all redone again. See when you think they don't take a blind bit of notice of what you say, something always comes along to prove you wrong and gladden your wee heart.
Hope that your day has been a good one for you all and sending you all hugs
love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Sandra said...

Hi Sue & friends,
Such a pretty feminine card, so versatile too, from a birthday card to a get well card.
Its great to see new ways to use the dies too. Can I please make a request Sue???? Could you please make a video tutorial of all the different ways to make up the different flower dies you have bought us, from the classic rose to the faux quilled and the camelia dies too, I think it would be great to get some inspiration, I have seen you use them all in different ways but it would be great to have them all I one place.
Janet, how did candle making go? I am not sure if I am alone here, I think it may be a sign of age, it relates to the Good Life comment from yesterday, I seem to have developed the habit of keeping plastic pots and jars, we get yoghurt in these little buckets and I cant seem to throw them away, I am turning to a hoarder! I fid myself saying I'll keep that just in case'!!!!
I hope that all of our lovely Blog family are warm and safe from, these gales are terrible again today!
Huge hugs to all,
Sandra xxxx

Hi Sue,
I really love today's card and the video was super too. I keep getting these lightbulb moments when you show something I haven't thought of! Also I watched the previous video as I was unable to watch it that day. I just think the Gemini dies are so versatile and lovely. Thank you for everything you teach us each week. x
Norah - it's so good to have you back ! Sorry you did too much yesterday but you did make me laugh about the hammer! Hope it returns to its toolbox as a tool and a weapon!
Steph - I agree this is such a happy blog and a warm place to be x

Txcowgirl said...

So beautiful Sue, amazing how you find never ending ways to use the dies. Very thankful you share these with all of us.
Norah, enjoyed the story of your happy accident. Bet you get many a compliment on your new home decor.
Not sure how you would bake ice cream either, but here in the south, we do fry ice cream. My California sister in law swears we'd fry anything in the south, and I guess she's right. People at our state fairs fry Twinkies, bubble gum, chocolate bars, etc. and enter them in contests, then they have booths where you can buy them. It's a coveted title if you're the winner.

Hi Sue,
Really pretty card, love the lavender . Really good video too! Thank you.
Janet, pleased the candles came out quite well and at least you know what to do next time. Theresa, hope you got some joy about your appointment for ultrasound. Hopefully it won't be too long. Norah good to hear from you. Well it's been a lovely day here apart from the strong winds but it now seems as though they have changed direction and are now straight on the back of the house, so a disturbed night me thinks! Still better than the snow and ice we had yesterday, - ended up going sideways on one of the estate roads and nearly ended in someone's front garden! Fortunately managed to control the skid before that happened! Sending everyone love and hugs , Alison xxx
