Floating Sentiment

Hi bloggers!  Today's video card shows how to use your sentiment dies in a way that makes them appear like they are floating.  I hope you enjoy it!







 The finished dimensions are 8" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Izzy said...

Hello Sue,

I can't think why I'm still surprised at how well all your dies work so well together, it almost doesn't matter which ones you buy they will work with the ones you bought previously and that's a huge bonus as we all have to count the pennies...

Love the floating effect here, makes the most of that sentiment - now all we need is for someone to invent a non-shiny acetate as that would look even better!...

Izzy

Rosalind McLellan said...

Hello Sue

What a brilliant idea, and thank you for showing that the edges of the Gemini dies have to be nipped with scissors. I thought I was doing something wrong. Lol.

Tressa said...

Some really interesting techniques here. Now I know what to do with the piles of gloss paper I have acquired over the years!!!! I particular like the use of acetate to float the sentiment and the use of the Canadian background as you have done here. I may not have all the dies but there are some great ideas here to play around with. Thank you.

ecco of sheffield said...

Morning Sue
What a glorious way to be back after five days absence due to family visitors.
A video and a wonderful gift from yourself. Just what I needed to start me off back into 'normal' just the two of us and peace and quiet.

I have a couple of your new 8x8 Efolders and they are just wonderful to use. I love your colour palette for today and the piece of acetate is just genius to create the floating sentiment. This has definitely gone into my 'must do' file and as I have a few bdays coming up in August I'm sure that one of them will have today's style.

So off now to sort out all the bedrooms etc and return Marigny to her usual self.

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

HI SUE
FAB CARD AND VIDEO. COULD PLAY TRICKS ON SOME PEOPLE WITH THIS CARD (THE DRINKERS IN THE FAMILY) LOL, WOULD MAKE THEM LOOK TWICE. LOVE THE EMBOSSING FOLDER. YOU HAVE MY MIND RUNNING RIOT AT THE MOMENT THINKING OF ACETATE LAYERS WITH DIFFERENT XMAS DIES ON THEM. YEP REINDEER ON ONE CHRISTMAS TREE ON ANOTHER. HAVE TO GO HAVE A PLAY. REALLY ENJOY YOUR VIDEOS.

Hi Sue Great video today and a beautiful card too, love the floating effect you have achieved. It's interesting you are starting to use spray glue, so much easier than having blobs of glue squelching out - must look at JS to see if she has it on your list. Have a lovely day with your mum.

Izzy I know you can get matt laminating sheets so I wonder if they would produce the effect you are looking for? Xxx

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. What a brilliant idea using acetate to float the greeting on, certainly one to remember. Such a pretty card with a beautiful colour combo. The edging die is so pretty and enhanced by embossing, I love it.
I too must look into spray adhesive, although I did think at some point in your video you mentioned spraying the back of you edging die with custard lol which made me smile (must watch again to see if I need a hearing check lol)
Thank you for another gorgeous card and inspirational tutorial - one for Jennie to enjoy and make with Grandma : )
Enjoy your day Sue. I too look forward to the new release.

Have a nice afternoon. To all Wilsonette's and Friends, take care

Hi Sue, another really great vidoe and such a gorgeous card, so soft with the white and custard. The floating sentiment is a really great idea, I am sure it will be well used! My new craft room is finished all but hanging the curtains, so I can FINALLY get to do some crafting - whoo hoo!!!
Having everything packed away in boxes over the last few weeks has been an absolute nightmare - I have had severe withdrawal symptoms!! Now that there is a place for everything and everything in it's place - I just have to remember where it all is :o)

Awesome card using the "floating" technique. I need to try this soon.

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Good afternoon Sue and the lovely Wilsonettes,

What an absolutely beautiful card for today's demo- I have said it before, but I really love video days since watching you create something step by step seems to compute in my crumbling brain far easier than the written word seems to. This particular masterpiece is my favourite example of your genius in a while-I adore the floating sentiment technique and the tip about sanding the embossed gloss card for added texture. You are using spray adhesive a lot lately so I have ordered some from ebay for the fiddlier die cuts.im also awaiting a delivery of some custard card and the lovely scarlet card for my Christmas cards...just need to start getting the dies now! Giving it another week or two so that my credit card has fully recovered from its malaise following your C&C shows.
Had a senior moment earlier today when I got a taxi to Stirling only to discover I had left my card at home!!??!Red faces all round as I had to get another one back home to collect it, is the universe telling me to exercise caution?....well, it didn't work:-)
Hope my good friends who are ill or struggling...yes, that means you Yvonne...are feeling a bit brighter today. We miss you all.
I also hope that you are enjoying your break in Florida Sue, here's hoping that you may bring the sun back with you when you retun next month. Raining again in Stirling, ooh I wish that I could win the lottery and buy a home in sunnier climes...anywhere south of Carlisle would probably fit the bill nicely:-)

Loads of love and crafty hugs,

Laine1972xxxxxxx

After watching the video on this card, I was not able to "like it". Symbols have changed? How do I "like it" now?

Wheely Bad said...

Hi Sue

A real stunner, I think it's terrific. For non shiny acetate try using printable acetate. One side is matt with a paper like texture.

Didn't get a chance to say how much I liked the card made by little Jennie yesterday.

Also hope Molly and her granddad are doing well.

Maria, just the topstitching to go! My neck is causing me big problems, quick comment as it's making my eyes hurt when I'm not asleep. Hopefully this will be quickly back to 'normal' and I can be more sociable!

Hugs to all of you. Happy crafting,

Good evening Sue and crafty companions
What a stunner Sue, love the Canadian border, love the floating sentiment, love the swirly heart corner thingys, sorry can't remember their name. So clever and beautiful. Will watch demo later. Sue hope you're enjoying your time away with your mum x
Sandra, hope your channel crossing is not too choppy and you have a lovely time wherever you're going (hols?) x
Maria so sorry to hear about your son's car, I just can't understand some people, it happened to one of our neighbours so she typed up a note asking if anyone had seen anything and posted through all the doors nearby. Can you tell what colour the car was? Did it leave any paint on your son's car - might help. Hope you get things sorted x
Karen K, I'm so envious, a brand new craft room that sounds wonderful. I'm afraid my craft space leaves a lot to be desired and I could really do with more...... space. Hubby and I agreed to share the room so he could have a little office - sounded like an OK idea at the time but sometimes I don't think our hubbys appreciate just how much space our stashes take up lol. Enjoy! x
Lorraine, I'm glad it's not just me then, I swear I sometimes have so much stuff in my head that it leaks out, my memory is shocking so I'll keep taking the tablets, can you get tablets for your memory, must get some to help me sleep a bit better, now, what was I going to say? No, it's gone! See what I mean!! x
So glad to hear you're still alive Yvonne, also glad to hear you're not kicking your friends! Sending healing prayers for a quick recovery & hugs x x

Hello Sue,
Truly scrumptious, it's truly truly scrumptious! Like the idea of using spray adhesive, didn't know you could buy it in custard flavour though LOL. I have the linen embossing folder and it is fabulous, must give it a go on glossy card as the tone on tone effect you achieved was lovely.

Wheely Bad, sending you gentle hugs to ease your poorly neck.

Love and hugs for all
