Three Wise Men Mini Striplet

Good morning all!  The new Three Wise Men Mini Striplet is the perfect way to not only start the day off right, but to introduce you to the new slightly smaller sized striplets.  These are just a hair over  1 3/4" x  5 1/4" in size. The original striplet size was 2" x 6" in size.   I had requests for smaller sized dies from many of you so I have included several on this latest die release.  This is the first scene that I have attempted in a striplet but I am so happy with the results.  The detailing is stunning with both embossed and debossed areas within.  I only wish you could see this one in person!  Leave me a comment to be included in the drawing and don't forget to check back.  The next blog post is scheduled to arrive at 10am.  Hope you can join us again then.  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue,

Lovely card again Sue . Love the striplet dies, this design is such a lovely background and a nice size too. JJXX

hettygarlick said...

Very dramatic! I love cards with a Christian content and they're not always easy to get (or make) now - everything has become so secular. Well done Sue for including this. Love the silver poinsettias too.

Clai01 said...

Hello Sue
some lovely details put into a small space and good idea for smaller cards too, looking forward to today and your other posts. x

Breezes said...

Three Wise Men from a very wise Sue Wilson ! Making a beautiful Christmas card easy to achieve - thank you Sue !

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue happy Saturday. The first thing that struck me was, what an unusual background but im sure all will be reveiled in due course.
Its so lovely to see you have bought in festive striplets this year as the everyday striplets are so very useful, and im sure those that have asked for the smaller size are delighted to see you have listening to them. As I've said in previous post's these festive dies are just beautiful and the best festive dies you have designed so far (in my opinion) !
Thanks again for giving us the chance to be a lucky recipient should our name be chosen.
Have a great day Sue.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

Morning Sue
This striplet completely blew me away when I first saw it Sue. It has everything which reminds us of the Season - everything that the season should be and not commercial tills ringing.
I am pleased to say that I shall see this in 'real life' as I pre-ordered it I just could not resist and it will be used on my gifts this year.

It was quite odd yesterday looking at all your Seasonal dies and sitting in temps of 34plus whilst doing it and it looks as though today is going to be the same.

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

Good morning Sue, oh what a beautiful striplet, I don't think one would need much more than this to make a stunning card, so batch making would be easy. As I have said I will wait till the end of the launch before I decide. Hazel ( baskets of joy) x

Desiree P said...

So good to see a nativity design - there are so few of them compared to other Christmassy designs. Although no longer a practising Christian, I never send Christmas cards that are not nativity related as I still believe in keeping the Christ in Christmas.

Scottydog said...

Lovely die & card Sue. This is the true meaning of Christmas & so good to find a die representing that. If I don't win it I will certainly be buying it.

Hi Sue,
Thank you so much for this beautiful die, it is such a wonderful detailed scene. I make cards for a Christian charity shop and every year they look for something that invokes the true meaning of Christmas, and this die definitely fits the bill.

Hi Sue and Lovely Wilsonettes...

I was up at 4.45am this morning and it has taken me all this time to read through all of the comments left for each of yesterdays posts...phew!!!! The sheer number of them has left me reeling and I'm now hoping that I can uncross my blurry eyes...

The thing I love most about this beautiful Striplet die Sue is that it is so different and very versatile, I can at this moment picture it being cut out in black on one side, or blue or silver or gold etc and different colour background with opposite background to first side(well I think you know what I the inspiration and vision that you grace us with Sue is beyond all words.

MARIA A...speaking of first post if you haven't already had the chance to do so please read my rendition of "wee collecting part 1"...on yesterdays first card of the launch...sure to make you chuckle (((((hugs)))))x x x

CHERYL B...Your Pete was indeed a very wise good to know that he gave you 26 happy years with so many fond memories to cherish (((((hugs)))))x x x

LYNDA...How awfully sweet of your darling little ANNIE to keep you and hubby on your toes, no one can say that she hasn't got they really laugh and wrap us around their little paws...I think so...(((((Hugs))))) to you and Annie...bless her x x x

MEG...Special (((((Hugs))))) to MONTY and his limp...bless him...don't suppose he would listen to anyone else having a word with there isn't a way they can understand what the naughty or time out step is or taking away a privilege works for kiddies...doesn't x x x

THERESA W...please by all means GIGGLE away...Lauren had the last laugh on me, or did she, she doesn't know I've posted her antics for my Wilsonette friends to read it is good to know that my rendition of Thursdays events has brought laughter to the hearts of many...I still cannot believe myself that I was able to pen such an hilarious rendition so early in the x x

FLUFFY CAT & MARIA...I wouldn't be surprised if the veterinary staff didn't have their own little giggle about the (diddy) wee sample that was handed in...I mean really, it beggars belief that an experienced dog person & past dog trainer...or people a hamster sized tiddle from a Border Collie...I think there's a little chat coming up between Lauren and myself in readiness for the next sample collection...still I guess there was enough there as they didn't ask me to do an instant, just further down the line...something to look forward to x x x

Well guess I gotta go and try and catch up on things my friends. To Sue (or Santa Sue as Yvonne so aptly put it)I would like to express a sincere thank you (such small words for tremendous deeds and generosity) for bringing us yet another star will always have my gratitude, continued support and admiration...

To my Special Friend Wilsonettes (I need not name you lovely ladies) I send you Love (((((Hugs)))))and smiles x x x, to our adorable pets Hugs and Woof Woofs x x x and to all the other wonderful Wilsonettes I send you (((((Hugs))))) and smiles to keep you through this lovely sunny day...take care in the heat or frost ( Love Beth B x x x

That card is so unusual, the striplet is lovely but when I saw it I wasn't quite sure what could be done with it. Now I know! :) A lovely card for Christmas.

Hi Sue, this die went straight to the top of my list when I had my sneaky preview. So much detail in such a small area and I think you have done a wonderful job creating it. A lovely card showing the die off really well. I agree with so many other Wilsonettes that it is lovely to have a die showing part of the Christmas story and although I make many and varied cards for Christmas I do try to keep the Christ in Christmas where possible.

Hi Sue,
What a stunning card. How you managed to get all that detail into a Striplet die is truly amazing and the result is fabulous. Like most of your followers have said, it brings the Christmas story into a Christmas card. It has gone straight into my wish basket.

Much love to you all from a very hot Croatia

Good morning Sue and lovely Wilsonettes,

Aren't we being treated to a cornucopia(thank goodness for predictive text!) of fabulous designs with our Sues new die range. I am not alone in adoring the strip let collection and this little gem will be a welcome addition. You have really catered to everyone's tastes Sue, the traditionalist will love this design, what an achievement to get such intricacy into a smaller frame. I had to have a second look at the background though, at first I thought it was die cut then my early morning brain realised that it was a mask and texture paste- I really need to try this technique soon.
I am not surprised that it has taken you so long to read through everyone comments Beth, it took me a couple of hours last night, to read and comment on the posts I missed earlier, but hey, it's fun reading about the antics of Sues faithful followers. I am so glad you managed to salvage some of Lauren's sample and a little self respect to boot. Do nt worry , even the most experienced pet owners struggle with this laborious task. I dread to think how I will get Darcey to use her litter tray if I am required to collect one in the future!
Looking forward to the rest of today's posts Sue, hopefully I can keep up with them today in between housework.

Love ans crafty hugs,

Now this is definitely one I like it is so difficult to obtain dies to convey the real meaning of Christmas. Thank you I especially like a christian message at Christmas time.

Hi Sue,
How do you do it........this is a brilliant concept. I like the fact that is slightly smaller too as we can't all make big cards. Love it.

Wonderful Sue, I love this and a smaller striplet die will be great for Christmas cards ,

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning dear Sue and Wilsonettes
Can I just say Sue without you fainting on us that this card is stunning in the black as it just sets it off to a tee. The image of the the three kings I think you have captur just perfectly in this striplet mini and it makes up a beautiful clean and simple card that is so stunning but carries so much meaning that sometimes words can't say. I must say that I love your normal sized striplets Sue but I do like this miniature selection that you have made for us as we can now make some smaller cards, saving card but still turning out a work or art to hand over at that special time of the year when we have so many people to make for. Thank you Sue and can we have some more this size for doing dainty cards during the year please.
With a lot of love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Pat Webster said...

This is so beautiful! Love the smaller size striplet!
