Hi Sue,
Beautiful card in such a pretty colour. I've used the noble square dies quite a bit but haven't tried a recessed design. Thanks for the video and showing us that you don't have to be confined to the shape of a die but can do more with them.

Yvonne G said...

Morning Sue
Love this card. The colour is beautifully soft and those noble dies get me every time. They have been promoted to the very top of my want/wish list.
Well I spent yesterday trying to catch up on all the posts I'd missed whilst being incapacitated for over a week. And the whole day. Haven't managed to view the videos yet. When I do get round to catching up on all the videos it will be as exciting, if not more exciting than watching your favourite box set all in one go.
It did make me chill and put my feet up and out of mischief. Have to be really careful not to overdo things otherwise I'll end up in bed for another week.
I have to say, as you are so popular Sue it is no easy task reading a whole weeks worth of comments. My brain cell felt positively overworked by the end of the day.

Janet I am so sorry to hear that you lost your sister in law. Sending you love.

June I'm sorry to hear that you lost your friend. Sending you love.

I hope that you, your family and your friends are able remember the happy times and smile a little during this terribly sad and difficult time. Sending you a both big hugs.
How fitting that you should win Wednesdays card Janet. Congratulations

Sandra - hope you are feeling better.

Theresa - hope your recovery is going well

Tracey - hope your head is ok. More to the point - is your clock working?

Lynne - hope Cully is up to her mischevious tricks soon- tail intact.

Wheely bad - hang in there hun.

If I have missed anyone I apologise but it's hard trying to remember everything. So lots of love to everyone.

Saba - thank you for welcoming me back. It is a relief to be back in the land of the out of bed and upright!!!

Still feeling fragile so I think my best plan of action is to find a comfortable spot, to park my backside and ignore all the mess and dust. One must prioritise and surely Sue's videos are so much more important.
Thank you so much Sue for all your beautiful cards. Particraft is proving invaluable to keep me out of mischief and avoiding the housework.
Try and have a lovely day everybody.
Crafty hugs

Anonymous said...

Oh so gorgeous, Sue, pleased to see this as the pierced nobles are at this moment in the post - but, now think the other set is needed too!! Love it and thank you for the video. Particularly like this as an 'innie' version rather than an 'outie'.

Steph - Happy Anniversary! So, what did you get??

CHERYL Brown said...

Good morning Sue and ladies,

A stunning video and equally stunning card.
I have recently bought the Noble ornate rectangles so will be seeing what I can create with them on the same lines as your square card.

For everybody who learnt of my ongoing saga regarding complete refurbishment of my shower room and the 'chanty raslers' builders ( Norah's quaint term for them), and my diagnosis of breast cancer that put everything on hold for a few months last year and early this year, today is the day the fitters come out and lay the new flooring. YAY!!!! A gorgeous room at last. I will be posting photos of said room on my Blog later on.

Happy Anniversary Steph and OH, have a lovely day. What was your long awaited surprize?

For everyone under the weather, I hope your day will be kind to you.
Love & hugs to all
Cheryl xxxx

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
This card is Gorgeous with a capital G but I'm a committed fan of the Noble dies, both square and rectangles. I wish I could make more of those deep cards but Royal Mail puts a stop to that because of expense (people don't want to pay the postage).
Great video, explaining the whole process so well and making it look easy.
Must experiment by using the square die with the Austrians, perhaps border/corner etc.........
Hugs, Rose

Hi Sue. What a beautiful card and I know for certain many of us can relate to the sentiment used. Its through Particraft that so many butterflies have come together, so thank you from the very bottom of my heart.

The colour used is breath takingly gorgeous so much so the last card you showed us using this shade of mauve meant I had to buy some lol.
I have just one of the noble dies, but its on 'the list' so if its not one I receive today, its a set I will definatly get, which means I will actually own one complete set at last. P my lovely in Wales, not opened our gifts yet, whereas 36 years ago I kinda took priority lol food and a four legged animal have taken 1st and 2nd place, but hey ho Im not worried lol, and thank you for your best wishes for our anniversary : )
Welcome home Yvonne, hope life is looking easier for you now, so enjoy the catch up, enjoy the video's but keep a damp cool sponge near by for your frazzeled but very happy and content brain lol.
To those 'butterflies' that are struggling may happiness and health soon return.
To our dearest butterfly of all, hope you are still finding time to make memories inbetween work.

Hello Sue, and all the ladies.
This card is so beautiful. The design of the card looking in, makes such a change from the pyramid type (if you know what I mean), and I had forgotten all about this sort of design. We do get stuck in a rut if not shaken now and again!!
Happy Anniversary Steph.
Janet and June, I hope you are feeling brighter today.
Cheryl, does this mean that you'll be able to have a shower at last? lol
Lynne M, I hope Cully is on the up and up.
Love to all who are under the weather.

Although Im not allowed to play today as we are going on a road trip to Lytham on the coast (hoping my finger's hold up to the coastal breeze, if not I'll be the only one looking a complete muppet wearing gloves on the beech !!!

Hi Sue, beautiful card in my favourite colour. The dies are so detailed they really don't need any other adornment. Nice and clear video. Feeling happy as the postman has just been with my camellia dies. So many different sizes - I love the teeny weeny ones - and I am looking forward to playing this afternoon :-)

Steph - Happy Anniversary to you and Mr L. What lovely presents you received. Enjoy your day at Lytham and I hope the sun shines for you both.

Good afternoon Sue & friends,
Well I am just about back to near normal, I was eventually diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia, I wouldn't wish it upon anyone it is excruciatingly painful, I have felt like a huge part of my life has been missing not being part of the daily events both on Sue's amazing blog and over at the cafe (my blog) ! Thank goodness for blog scheduling! So what have I missed?? I have had a quick flivk back through Sue's gorgeous cards, wow,wow,wow, Sue you have been a very busy girl!
Today's card is particularly stunning, partly due to the colour and the fabulous Noble dies, I am going to have my 'prescribed siesta' and watch the video, thank you Sue for raking the time to make your amazing videos to inspire us, I am hugely grateful xx
Love & hugs to all,
Happy Anniversary Steph & Andy, enjoy your day!

Myra said...

Hi Sue,
A bit late today but I wanted to watch the video first! The card looked quite complicated but as you say the dies and your brain did all the work! Thanks so much for the clear video instructions. This card is a real beauty and such a pretty colour. I only have the square dies in this set but well I'm weakening! It doesn't take much you know!
Congratulations Steph on your Anniversary.
Maria - hope you are having a lovely time. Be good, young lady!!
Love to all,

Margaret Rogers said...

Hi Sue
Another lovely card. But how nice it would be to see a card made using only one set of dies, but using more of the pieces. That way it wouldn't be too expensive. It takes time to build up a collection of dies, and I must admit that I get frustrated when I see a card that I like the look of, but find it impossible to create it due to a lack of dies.Still enjoy watching your tutorials though.

Norah McPhee said...

Good evening Sue and the Wilsonettes,
This is a beautiful card Sue and like a lot of others i have a stunning pale blue version on my screen but i get to see it's true beauty from the video. When i first looked at it it looked like you had embossed the bottom section or put all the cut away bits down and taken away the main die cut. It's funny how your eyes can play tricks with your brain like. I really do like your noble dies and although i have the first 4, need to save for the next ones as needed to invest in a new cutting machine although it is not one of those TODO ones as that is way out of my league but i managed to get the Big shot Plus quite reasonable and it cuts out all my special dies which is more to the point at ease instead of me having to have Rockie Marseano's muscles.
Just to let all my wilsonette angels know that my daughter Kirsten gave birth this morning to a baby boy called Harry John Fox, weight 6lbs 9.5oz by emergency caesarian because of complications but both her and the wee lad are doing fine.
Love and crafty hugs to all both on blog and not at the moment,
Norah (Glenochil)
