Inlaid Ivy



Hi bloggers!  A really lovely card today for your video treat using the Greek Island Border in a different sort of way.  It is a really useful die and this is just one more way to get the most out of it!  I hope you enjoy the video!

Buy from Joanna Sheen




The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. Thank you for reminding me that I need to buy some more glossyness (is that even a word) ? Its quite amazing what a difference it makes to your cards. And I just love how you have bought your ivy die to life in your video tutorial today. I do have the ivy but unfortunatly not the Rhodes, never mind I can improvise with another.
Hope you are having a productive time whilst having some family/leisure time too. Thank you once again for a lovely, inspirational video and look forward to Thursday's too.
Sending you love n hugs.

Muriel Kelly said...

Hi Sue and all
Lovely card, love the glossy on the leaves, I tried that on some leaves on a card this week and was really pleased with the result.
Off to play with my new Vancouver die now, it seems as if for every die I buy I want 2 or 3 others lol !!!
Have a good day, hoping you all had a lovely bank holiday

Yvonne G said...

Morning Sue
Such a crisp, clean looking card. I think the ivy is so unique and gives your cards a really different look to anything else that springs to mind. It will be lovely for Christmas cards.
Where do you get your inspiration from Sue? Do you ever lose your mojo like the rest of us? When I run out of ideas I just look at your blog and it sorts me out.
Video and cuppa later on will be the highlight of my day. Who needs Coronation Street?
Happy Tuesday everyone.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

Morning Sue
We have Sunshine!!!!
Your gift today is just beautiful. A simple format with your dies doing all the work just like you need them to do.

As you know border dies are not my favourite but having seen the Ivy one today I think it's going to be a must purchase and with the Season coming up I think it would be so so useful.

It's Knit and Natter day today so will have to be off to sort things out in between one or two laundry jobs.

Sue do you have the dates for your next visit to C&C? please.

To all in pain and suffering today I hope your day gets better. To everyone please take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

Fabulous card Sue, lovely dies and sentiment

Anonymous said...

Good morning Sue
Really enjoyed your video today. I like how you used three different coloured greens for the ivy. I would probably have been looking for a piece of green card to use, I forget about using your stamp pads for colour. The finished card is just up my street,its gorgeous.

Elizabeth Beal said...

Good morning Wilsonettes & a very good morning to you Sue...

Have just enjoyed watching your fabulous video & what an eye opener with regards to inking the card first, as someone else mentioned I would have done the exact same & used green card stock or inked whilst in the die...but your video shows a much better, less messy way & as you say it gives it a more realistic look to the ivy.

My eyes when I first viewed your gorgeous card were immediately drawn to the Ivy Borders which then in a very clever way left the beautiful centrepiece open to be made from other S W inner dies other than the Rhodes.

Thank you so much for sharing with us Sue...you are an exceptionally generous person to give your time making time consuming videos so that we also have a visual of your remarkable genius, you are an inspiration to us all.

I shall be using my smoothies for this & for the sentiment stamping...I never realised that when I included the smoothie tip it would help so many, & they truly are the best thing since sliced bread...lol...but at the same time it is good that it has helped confirm to you that they are a product worth having, especially if your inking is not so great like mine...lol

Then again they do say an artist is only as good as his tools will allow him to be....lol

Alison keep smiling Hun because if you can give yourself a wee smile every day then one day you will realise that happier memories of your aunt are in the forefront. X x x

To any Wilsonettes who needs a hug & smile, get ready to catch as they are coming your way.

To everyone please enjoy your day. Take care love Beth x x x

Hi Sue - when I first saw you ink your paper first I thought it was such a good idea and I love the way you have lacquered the leaves. I can see this die being really useful for, dare I say it, 'Christmas' cards. The inlaid effect is so different too. Thank you for another brilliant idea. Best wishes,
YvonneMayxx

lydia jordan said...

Morning Sue,
Love the way you have glossed the ivy, I must say it's so much better when you ink the card before cutting, a great tip.
This a gorgeous card and would be good for a sympathy card.
Thanks for a fantastic video.

Hi Sue
What a great card and video today, thank you for sharing. I too would be looking out my green card so the inking technique is great and looks fab lacquered. I must give that a go. Love these Rhodes dies too, oh dear beans on toast this week I think!
Take care

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a beautiful card and I love the inlay technique. Not something I have tried before but there is a first time for everything. I have used your tip for inking white card with two or three colour pads lots of times now, not just for ivy but for leaves and swirls as well. It works a treat and looks so much more realistic than a plain piece of card does. Love the glossy leaves and see that I must now get some lacquer. Hoping to receive the Canadian background and some of the new Finishing Touches dies tomorrow ready for play-time at the week-end.

Hi Sue,
I have to say Thank You So Much for a really great video! I love what you did with Ivy and especially setting into the previously cut pieces! It's just so effective. I love that Ivy set and it will be lovely for dare I say it Christmas cards too!
These Ivy dies are just so realistic and although they have lots of little curlicues they are quite sturdy and don't tear easily! If you haven't bought them ladies - get them - they are gorgeous ! I'm not on commission !! Lol!

Helloooo Sue and the Wilsonettes! what a beautiful, elegant card. The video has been riveting to watch. I love how you have used the cut ends and inserted the ivy back into it.

Oh I love this card, you're really singing from my hymn sheet with this one, it is beautiful. The video as always is brilliant, I love these Ivy dies they fit almost any occasion .
I had sub tiles with this video, don't know if anyone else had them, may be I pressed something on the iPad. They were funny, rather like predictive text. But they didn't stop me enjoying watching your lovel demo. LOL

Suzzette Yandle said...

Enjoyed the video and the techniques shown on it. Thank you for the video. I will have to try replacing the apeture around the cut away pieces.

Well, I must give you an update on my attempt of your lovely "Thanks So Much" card. I have my version completed except for the flowers which I will make today. Not having the dies you used, I used some of the dies of yours that I do have on hand. The following are the dies I used: Noble die - Ornate Pierced Rectangles, CED5502; Gemini die- Carina, CED 4405; Caribbean Island Collection - St Kitts, CED5204; Finishing Touches - Camellia, Complete Petals, CED1421; Spun Sugar Distressed Ink, a glitter that I think is close to your Iced Snow. Finished card: 6 x 7 3/8 inches. I am very pleased with the results with the combination that I selected. I will try this card again when my order of the dies you used arrive at my door. I found a company here in the US that has the dies you used up for sale on their site. I ordered them last night. Thank you for such a beautiful card!!!

IVY Cheong said...

Wow! Will definitely make this card, it's beautiful. Thank you. Live, Ivy xx

Hi Sue and all you lovely ladies. Gorgeous card today Sue!
Love the glossy leaves all shaded & toned to perfection, love the filigree dies in the centre. Thanks for sharing your expert techniques and know-how Sue, inlaying dies and shading before cutting, marvelous stuff! Green and white so crisp and clean just sings. Going to sit back and relax now with a cuppa & your video after a busy day at the office.
On the countdown now to my few days away with the girls, leaving the lads at home to fend for themselves lol.

Hi Sue,
Really lovely card. - love the ivy and I do agree it would make a lovely sympathy card.
Beth, I am trying to follow your advice. I've been out for lunch with some of the staff from my last school who had also bought me a lovely present - some Pandora earrings, bless them. It was lovely to see them again. On Thursday I am off to Rockcliffe Hall (5 star hotel in Darlington) for afternoon tea with friends from my first teaching school. Myself and one of the others are treating everyone to celebrate our 60 th birthdays, so really looking forward to that. I do remember my aunt and some of the daft things that she would do and find myself having a little giggle so I suppose the healing process has begun.
Love and hugs to you all, Alison xxx

Hi Sue. Oooooh this is a fab card and video today !! I love it all !! The video is great Sue and so easy to understand. I love the way you have used different inks straight on to a piece of card before cutting the ivy dies. It gives such a realistic blended look. I also love the way you have glossed them with clear lacker to really make them stand out on your card. Your inlaid technique looks great. I am not sure I could get my ivy to look as good as yours though !! The Rhodes dies look really beautiful Sue. Another die set for my wish list !! I think this is a really great card Sue and would be great for many different occasions, including a mans card or a sympathy card to. Thank you for sharing today and for all your continued hard work to bring us the best cards, inspiration, dies and videos !! I just don't know what I would do without you !! I hope you are having a good time with your family. Take care. Sending you lots of love and hugs from Tres x x x
