Ivy Trellis



Hello crafters!  Today's video shows how to use the Greek Island Background easily.  Part of the die is designed with a deboss feature to it and I show how to use it simply.   It really is a simple card, but with beautiful results that I am sure you will love.



Buy from Joanna Sheen







 The finished dimensions are 5 3/4" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Rachel Macfarlane said...

Hi Sue me again can I ask.... is there any chance you might bring out a set of square pinprick dies large enough to cover your base
Card blank.... as I have the same ailment as Leonie and I'm sure it would be popular. ..
Luv Rach :)

Hi Sue. Beautiful card, so many uses. Thanks for all your hard work making the videos, I always find it easier to understand something when I can see it rather than reading instructions. Looking forward to seeing what you have in store for us with your Christmas collection (but the Bank Manager isn't)!!! Sue xxx

CHERYL Brown said...

Good Morning Sue and all you lovely Wilsonettes.

The sun is shining here in my little corner of Somerset and I'm feeling fine.
Thank you all for such lovely comments and congratulations yesterday. We now have 5 generations back on our Family tree.

A beautiful card Sue, love the ivy. Although it is a pest in my garden, I do like ivy on cards, it suggests longevity for whomsoever receives a card with it on.
I wasn't too sure about the die when it first came out, but you have shown me to look at differently now, I am very impressed.

I don't have a wish list because the one wish I would dearly like to be granted would never ever come true. So I am now a 'Seize The Day' person and when I find it, who knows?, it could just throw itself into my basket.
My wish for those of us under the weather, that today will be kind to you and yours.
Love & hugs
Cheryl xxx

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, Wow, wow, wow, I love, love, love this card. Thank you for the video on this one, I hadn't realised that the felt flower was not a die !! it is so effective too. When I first saw the piccie I didn't realise that the colouring was distress ink until I watched the video. I absolutely love this card, and it could be fabulous for a Wedding, Anniversary or any occasion, it is stunning !! I have all the ingredients, so will be trying this one. Thank you, Sue.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Janice K said...

Good morning Sue. Another stunning card and great tutorial Which is teasing me as I know that I'll be getting the trellis die for my birthday in two months time. Not wanting to wish my life away, but I can't wait! Thanks to you I can see that I'll be NEEDING the trailing ivy die to go with it now.x

lydia jordan said...

Morning Sue,
A stunner, I was lucky enough to win the background die in the launch and I'm ashamed to say I have not used it yet. Today I'll remedy that.
I do love the simplicity of the card. Would be good for a sympathy card if the flower was left off.
Have a good day.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

Morning Sue
Today's gift is so elegant and you have just shown me that it can be either dressed up or down depending on the occasion and gender.
When you launched these dies I too wasn't quite sure but I just needed to be shown how you can use it. I think it's going on my list of needs which by the way is just getting longer and longer.

At the moment here it is dry but the clouds are black so I think it may be a stay in day and perhaps have a play day crafting. I'm up to date on bday gifts so can try out one or two things.

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

Another fab card using my favourite ivy die. Love the Greek range, but then love all the ranges!!! The soft colour of this one is perfect and show the dies brilliantly.

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
I love this die and every time I use it it gives me stunning cards. It also makes such lovely sympathy cards, something that unfortunately we shall all need at one time or another.
But what with the wine theme (because Greek) it certainly can be used for more joyous occasions.

Your card is gorgeous, it persuaded me to buy this die. And boy, am I glad I did.
Hugs, Rose

Good morning Sue
Enjoyed the video and found the tip about how to make the matching coloured mat especially useful. You have created a lovely card using this trellis background and the trailing ivy dies, I am still not sure whether I need the trailing ivy but it is growing on me!!!

Val W, men will never understand crafty mess. Dropping their clothes on the floor, leaving newspapers around or loosing their car keys they understand, but crafty mess..never.

Sam hope you are having a lovely time and enjoying every minute of your special birthday in Mauritius.

Helloooo Sue and the Wilsonettes! Oh wow! Another fantastic video showing us how to do this gorgeous card. Love everything about it and I'd never have thought of the tip of inking the outside of a card if you haven't got the right shade yourself. Plus the bling.....well, it would be sacrilege (had to go on the spell checker for that word!) not to...lol! The flower is beautiful and I have some pretty pastel coloured felt, lilac, pink, sky blue and pale green......there's no excuse now! "Thank you" so much Sue xx Sending love and hugs to you, your family and to all our Wilsonettes who are in need of some xx Love Karen xx

Video running perfectly now, Sue, and time to watch it properly. Thank you so much, full of inspiration, and love how the inking brings out the deboss so well. Altogether such a gentle card, topped with your lovely felt flower for the finishing touch. Am very fond of the trailing ivy dies, so pleased to have them.
Sam - wonder if you have internet access at all? Hope you are feeling a lot better, having a great time and enjoying your special birthday!

Elizabeth Beal said...

Hi Sue & Wilsonettes...apologies for the lateness of comment for this card but I had a heck of a busy morning then a workshop to attend with Julia Watts & John...for a first time it was really great...

As always Sue your creativity is outstanding, I have quite a lot of your Dies but not this background although it is lovely...especially the centre trellis...I simply couldn't visualize making a card from this but how you have proved me wrong...just watching your video has triggered off some ideas on what I could with this die...so guess what is next on my list.

What a great idea to ink the backing card to match your colour design...I tried it once but it didn't look right at all...but watching your video I realised it was because the border of inking was too wide & your demonstration shows that you only need a narrow border to show it off to its best.

Thank you for sharing your lovely creation & the video...it certainly has helped me to learn some new things today.

Take care & hugs & smiles sent to you & yours & to all Wilsonettes...love Beth B x x x
