Frame it with Configurations

Good morning Sue. I love todays card as the dies give such a lovely lacy look. Both Canadian shaped sets are on my birthday wishlist so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that, coupled with the background die that I already own, I will soon be able to create a similar design. Great tutorial.x

ecco of sheffield said...

Morning Sue
Today's gift is so beautiful and gentle; so feminine even without
floral or bow enhancements.
Your background colour also shows your wonderful dies to perfection
Unfortunately I cannot watch your video as this new laptop is playing
tricks on me and it's turning the video screen green when I want
to watch. I really do not like having to get used to new versions
of technology.

We are still under pure blue skies and no rain. The grass has now turned
a delicate shade of brown and is crispy and we have small cracks appearing
in the lawn.

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

Hello Sue

What a great card, I love it.


Yvonne G said...

Morning Sue
Such a lovely colour combination. Really delicate. You have shown over and over again how versatile the configuration dies are, not to mention how gorgeous they are. Once again thanks for sharing and giving us all such wonderful ideas and inspiration.

After flicking through the tv guide last night checking on C & C, on Thursday 23rd at 4pm and 7pm, there just so happens to be a one day wonder. So not only is Sue on C & C, but it is going to be a one day wonder. So excited I nearly wet myself!!!!!
So, as I am expecting Birthday money today, I will be able to indulge myself - can things get any better!!!!

Have a terrific Tuesday everyone

What a perfectly beautiful card to wake up to, once again Sue you show us that all of your dies can be mixed & matched in so many effective ways...love the hint on the video about cutting outer die, then taping inner die before removing outer die, this hint will come in handy for so many newbies to card craft, for me too. I have the configurations & just adore the lacy effect around the background & the colour of todays card is also nice & refreshing too. Thank you for sharing this gorgeous card & for the video...I love to make notes on word Doc' whilst I am watching as it really helps.

Dear Sue
What a beautiful card this is. I love the lilac and white colour palette.
I have the Canadian background die so must get it out and use it. I hadn't thought of cutting it down.
Thank you for the inspiration.
Got to take my little dog Annie to the vets as she's not walking very well plus she needs her jabs for the year (so she's going to love me). I will catch up on your blog cards and videos later. Take good care.

Love Katie-Louise sweetlove

CHERYL Brown said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,

Another bright day with glorious sunshine
Family coming tomorrow so off to do my early morning shop. It's so quiet without the school run, just suits my agoraphobia to a T.

I bless you for bringing out these lovely configuration dies, I didn't buy them all but my goodness, aren't they so versatile? They are on a par with your finishing touches dies, of which I do have rather a lot of.
Your card today is just so beautiful & delicate, with a subtle touch of colour.

I had a good sale at our Church Fete on Saturday, and raised £110.70 to forward to Cardiomyopathy UK in memory of my beloved husband Pete. I sold some more items to a visitor yesterday so that will be added.

Love & hugs to all

Good morning Sue, long time no post but we have had a nightmare with our internet! I have watched todays video and have partially satiated my 'watch Sue Wilson' habit and am also so glad to see you are back on our TV screens this week! The card is absolutely gorgeous. The colours are beautifully soft and the design simple but classy as usual! My new craft room will hopefully be finished this coming weekend, so looking forward to getting super organised and getting some serious crafting done with all the new CE die and crafty goodies purchases!! Hugs, Karen x

Saba said...

Good morning Sue,
Enjoyed the video and absolutely love this card. The Canadian background is superb.
I wish I could still get C&C here in Germany, I will be able to see the shows on the I pad but it's not the same. Please have a word with with someone there, I've still not had a reply from them and I wonder whether they even realise they have lost their European viewers.
Sorry, rant over, just so annoying.

Yvonne, wishing you a very happy birthday, hope you have a lovely day, don't eat too much broccoli And make sure there are no little accidents when you watch the shows. LOL
Wheelybad, well done to Mr. W. The e cigarette will save him a fortune and then you can spend it all on crafty things!!
Lynda, hope Annie's injections have helped her and she is recovering now.
Chery well done, Pete will be smiling down at you.
Lynda Mellor, how exciting for you a new grandchild, hope the day passes quickly.
Love and hugs for all

Pauline A said...

Morning Sue,I just love the way you have designed the Canadian background using 2 pieces because I have always shied away from using such intricate die due to the fact that I must have had to pass one through, which, although lovely, took an age to cut and even then I had to use a craft knife to finish it off. So, this is a definite die which I must have now. I always look forward to your videos and love today's card as it's so pretty. Hugs xx Pauline A

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Top of the morning to you Sue and my Wilsonette friends!

Wowzers! My favourite background ever makes a welcome appearance-and I am hoping that it will be included in the OneDay Wonder on Thursday when I can do a bit of bulk buying. I love the Configuration die as a frame, it's very effective and high on my list of must haves. I am looking forward to watching the master at work later as I have a busy day ahead.
I am going out for another caci facial-it re educates the facial muscles and is commonly used on stroke victims....and Kylie Minogue uses it on her bum!!??! Hopefully it will stop my face travelling south at such an alarming rate, it been years since my jowls were cheekbones!:-)
I am going to be super restrained at the shops afterwards, strictly essentials only, so that I have plenty of pennies for Thursday-Inot long to go now girls!
Darcey, the light of my life, had me trailing the streets again in the rain after 1am this morning-she likes to sit outside the house taunting me for hours refusing to come to bed. And I thought animals were less hassle than children....more fool me!:-)
Yvonne, Happy Birthday, hope you enjoy your day and get plenty of cash for Sues shows.
Cheryl, congrats at raising so much in memory of your dearest Pete, it's a worthy cause.
Beth, your daily dittys really cheer me up and bring a smile to my face, hope you enjoy your well deserved break and get plenty of man hours in your freshly decorated craftroom.
To all of my Wilsonette buddies and their furry babies, hope you have a lovely day-here's hoping some of Janet's sunshine from Burgandy shines down on you.

Love and crafty hugs,

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue.
Beautiful. The sentiment comes back to you for allowing us into your craft world of video tutorial's which I always look forward to. I had the Canadian background last month as my anniversary gift but not used it yet ! Unfortunatly the cards I have been asked for needed to be plain (the Canadian background is far from plain) but I fully intend to use it at the first opportunity I get.
I also adore the configuation dies which are highlighted on my 'gift list' for Mr L to choose from, the lacy die I do own is so special and beautiful for many reasons.
Like everyone else I shall look forward to your one day wonder on Thursday. For now I send warm hugs and love for the day.
Sending hugs to Tina (thinking of you) love to Sam too.

Yet another beauty in blue and white! Right up my street as they say.
The Canadian background is a firm favourite of mine and it's really easy to chop up as well! Very useful.
Will watch the video later as been a bit busy so far this morning.
Not long now until Thursday - sorry you can't watch on TV Saba . I know you watch Sue's videos on your TV . I'm useless but I take it you can't transfer programmes from iPad to TV ? What about watching later using their recorded programmes? Still No? I give up! xx

Lynda - I hope Annie is feeling better after her injections.

Beautiful use of your dies Sue, shows them off to perfection.

Hi Sue
Great video today, love the way the background die splits to help the middle bit go through the machine, the middle bits are always tricky aren't they. It shows your dies are designed by a crafter. The card is very pretty, the configuration edge is beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing. Love Diane G xxx
Yvonne happy birthday xxx
Cheryl fantastic raising that amount if money xxx
Lynda congratulations on your new grandchild xxx

Hi Sue

What a pretty card. How I love those configurations dies, for price and adaptability they must be the best value die range on the market, such a pretty lacy mat and the Canadian background, its on the list, that's all I can say!

Wow, C & C on Thursday, what a treat! I'll have to record 4pm but will be watching at 7pm for sure :-)

Saba, lol but I think any saved cash on his part will go on fishing gear!!! xxx

Cheryl well done on raising all that money in memory of your late husband xxx

Rolfi, let us know how your caught in crystal turns out, though I'm sure it'll be beautiful xxx

Sleepy day, think it's the heat so that's me for today. Sending hugs to all who comment on this wonderful blog, many extra hugs if you're not feeling well, in pain or just need some extra hugs,

Mary Lynn Cox said...

This is one of my all time favorite cards. It has beautiful color, lots of pearls for bling, and a lacy feeling to it. I wonder if it could be a gents card with color changes and no pearl.

Sandy H said...

Stunning card. The Canadian background is near the top of my wishlist. Off to watch the video.
Hope you had a lovely birthday, Yvonne.
Take care everyone.

Wow, I need to come up with better words! Your cards are just soooo beautiful. Your instructions are so helpful. You have an incredibly creative mind and I'm so pleased and thankful you bless us with your creations! It's funny but over the last week, I've been thinking I wanted to add the Canadian background to my collection-now I know I do! If only my bank account increased as quickly as my wish list! Lol. I'll have to see if C & C will be airing the same time in the states snd set it up to record. Yay I'm looking forward to it. Well I better get off to bed since it about 220 am here. Hopefully I'll dream of more of your lovely cards! Thank you again for your fabulous videos beautiful colors... I just really likf everything about thif
