Hi Sue. What a lovely suprise today to brighten a dull grey wet Saturday morning, and more video Saturday's to come too, wow.
Such a lovely tone on tone idea, gloss and matt are definatly perfect partner's and it really does show how pretty the stamp is. As Ive mentioned before, I have no stamps that match your dies but always admired how pretty they are together, so maybe its time I save up and get a few, but so many dies Id like to catch up with. I cant believe there are two dies hiding away somewhere for my anniversary gift and have 4 days still to wait 3 if you dont count today) lol roll on 16th when I am reunited with these dies, it was SO hard to pass the package over to Mr Lancashire when the postman delivered them : / never mind not too long to wait I suppose.
Sending best wishes and many congrats to Janet on your Wednesday card - enjoy : )
Whatever your plans for today Sue, hope you have a good one.
Hugs.
Lancashire Steph xx

crossstitchmarg said...

Morning Sue on this horrible wet Saturday,
I love the dramatic of the black, I like the stamp as well, must get some of these stamps to die for. I am thinking with a little change this could be made into a mans card.
Haven't got any glossy black card or the stamps but have all the other ingredients for this.
I love your videos they make such a difference and easy to follow.

Have a great day
Oh and congratulations to the winner.

Janet hampson said...

Hi Sue,
What a lovely surprise I've won the Wednesday card, and the sentiment is so appropriate (thinking of you) Unfortunately it is a bittersweet moment as I have just heard that my dear sister-in-law died in her sleep last night...she was only 62!

However she would be just as pleased for me that I had won. THANK YOU ladies for all your congrats and good wishes, you are a lovely bunch!

Now to todays card
We can never have too many video's...just love your demo's. Another stunning card today,just love the glossy black on matt black...FABULOUS!
Love Janet x

Hello Sue and all.

I love the blog and I'm happy wether it's stills or a video. I think this is a very elegant, stylish card. The matt and gloss contrast is dramatic and the hint of Pink makes the card ping. Another good base for a male card. Thanks for sharing.

Congratulations Janet.

Best wishes.

hettygarlick said...

I absolutely love this card, and black/pink is such a beautiful combination. The stamps that match the dies are wonderful. I have a couple, but not this one. I'd like it though!

Wheely Bad said...

Hi Sue

Glos and matte make a lovely combination. Stunning card, I shall spend a happy couple of hours catching up on these videos.

Janet, sincere condolences on the passing of your sister in law, I hope your card from Sue will give you a little joy at this sad time, sympathy hugs x

I've been getting tired before I've had the chance to comment! Tired now but awake so I should feel sleepy at the right time tonight for a good nights sleep and be up tomorrow in good time. Have a few crafty tasks that are getting on for 2 months overdue so plan is to get one of those at least started. I think some distraction would help the pain levels so I will work out how to spend short periods up the table tomorrow and still get things done. I have been able to do my charity knitting while I've been laid up so the time hasn't completely gone to waste.

Must go, hugs to Wilsonettes everywhere, extra hugs for all those that need them,

Hi Sue. What a lovely surprise to find a video today !! It is a fab video to. The card is beautiful Sue !! I love your mix of black matt and black gloss card. I had never really thought of putting these two different sorts of card together before but they look a great combination. I love the look of the floral stamp you have used and your colouring idea is very clever. I love the background you have made from the quilted striplet die. It is beautiful. Thank you for sharing this beautiful card today Sue. It was a lovely surprise. x x x
I just wanted to thank you also for Fridays wonderful card with the St Bart's Caribbean Die. (I hope I have the right name.) I really love this card. Lovely colours to. Also just to thank you for Thursdays amazing card and video to !! I thought this card was truly amazing using the letterpress technique and embossing the frame with gold embossing powder !! What a fantastic idea that I had never thought of doing before. The weaving is brilliant. I really need to get a weaving die as I do not have any of them yet. They are definitely moving up my wish list now.
I finally managed to get the Classic Adorned Square dies and I love, love, love them !! They are fab !! I am mixing both of your Noble Square Die sets to make two Father's Day cards and a get well soon card at the moment. I have got my Polished Silk Glitters out and am busy playing and experimenting with them. Your dies are fab Sue and they do all the work !! Thank you for all your inspiration Sue. Sending you lots of love today from Tres x x x

Uh oh! Another die to add to my wish list (actually, I should just ask for a printout of every Sue Wilson product made and check them off one by one! I believe I want them all! Not sure wher to get the black glossy, and have to come up with a substitute for the quilted striplet. I don't have the stamp either, but some patterned paper should do nicely- I couldn't make up my mind on the card I need to make today- but this lovely video sealed the deal!
