Good morning Sue,
A very opulent card, striplet dies are some of my favourites they are especially good on men's cards. Yvonne xx

ecco of Sheffield said...

Morning Sue
Although you have used the same colour palette for today's gift as yesterday today's gift is better for me as there is more white showing.
I still cringe when you cut your beautiful die cuts and although I know it's giving us another use for them they are so beautiful whole. I just have to grit my teeth before pulling down the cutting edge. I do love your format for the centre piece as it doesn't take the impact away from your wonderful striplet die.

It's the big monthly market today so I'm hoping there may be one or two bargains to be had as it's the last one we shall get before we return in October.

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

Hi Sue,
Lovely use of the striplet die - still one of my favourite type of die. I do like the layout but it's the colours I don't like although as Janet says, there's not as much black as yesterday. Going to watch the video now with my cup of coffee.
Have as good a day as is possible everyone, love and hugs to you all, Alison xxx

Good Morning Sue, what a lovely sentiment and such a beautiful card, those striplets really work well as a border. Hugs Shirleyxxxxxx

Tressa said...

More thinking out of the box: I think the idea of splitting the striplet gives a great result. I love the black and gold combination, using this with the light background makes it decadent as you said rather than funereal. Fabulous card.

Hellooo Sue,

A beautiful sumptuous card showing off the striplets to perfection.

Hi Sue,

You're obviously on a black and vintage gold theme at the moment and both the striplet and the Vancouver look stunning in this colour combo...

Saba - you won't see that advert over there in Germany and it's just the latest in their "I like this (expensive brand) and I like this (cheaper own brand)" series of ads...and then up pops this macaw screaming LIKELIKELIKELIKELIKELIKE....it really tickled my funnybone

Molly said...

Hello sue an everyone the card looks pretty with the gold boarders I have got to wait for dad to come home before I can watch the video because it's saying something about the flash player an he is only one who can sort it like last time. Good news everyone my granddads test were all ok so he can start his next round of chemo tomorrow. I read him all the comments everyone of you wrote an he said wow all the crossing of fingers an toes must of done the job an to say thank you to you all. Even the doctor said she can't believe his hair not started to fall out yet but said it probably will in next week or 2 oh an they sent a wig doctor to see him. Nan said I not allowed to tell you what granddad said about that an I wouldn't anyway because I don't swear. Thank you everyone your all very kind Molly oxoxox

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. Another beautiful striking card today. Black and gold alway's looks rich and decedent. The striplet die is the real star of the show, but it takes a star to create a masterpeice : )

Looks like our rescue dog gift wants to help with the decorating by carrying a roll of wallpaper into her master ! Lol, could that be classed as an act of kindness ? Lol bless her heart.
Have a wonderful day Sue.

Hi Sue what a stunner again today in this gorgeous colour combination. Love the way you cut the striplets, it makes such a fantastic boarder, yes Janet I held my breath too . Thank you so much for sharing, and all your hints and tips. Love to you and your mum from Diane G xxx

Molly and Melody I'm so glad grandads treatment has gone well so far, we will keep everything crossed for him. Oh yes I can imagine his comment when the wig Doctor visited! That made me chuckle. Big hugs to you all xxx

KT Fit Kitty said...

Wow! This looks amazing! So elegant! I enjoyed your video and I love these intricate dies! I just joined as a follower yesterday so I am enjoying the inspiration - thank you!

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, on first looking at the photographs I thought I didn't really like this card but watching the video really brought it to life and I do like it now but it is still not really one for me. Must be the black lol. Just as well we don't all like the same things or it would be a very dull world.

Molly - so pleased your Granddad's latest tests came back ok and he can go on with the treatment. When I was your age I lived next door to a lady who both made and taught others how to make wigs. I was very lucky and allowed to do some of the more simple processes but oh my, it was very fine and fiddly. I doubt the process has changed much so tell your granddad if he does eventually need a wig to appreciate all the hard work that has gone into it :-)


CraftyJo said...

Very nice, looking forward to watching the video later :)

Hi Sue
Another very striking card and as always a great instructional video, thank you for your kindness in sharing with us every day

Molly glad your Granda is able to cope with another round of chemo and will keep our fingers and toes crossed for him

Maria thank you for rembemering Sarah in your message yesterday. It is almost a year since her surgery in Great Ormond street but unfortunately the operation wasn't as successful as we'd hoped and the curvature of her spine is much worse. She is going back over there tomorrow, with mum and dad, to see orthopaedic consultant to find out what else can be done. However she is a very happy little girl and it will be her 8th birthday on Saturday

Hugs and best wishes everyone

Loving all of the elegant cards the last few days!!! The striplets are good for so many different things! TFS!

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Good afternoon dear Sue and fabulous Wilsonettes,

Don't you just love video days-I was watching some new Christmas inspired ones yesterday and I am so inspired to get started on my own, and it can't wait until Sue starts posting more of her fabulous examples.
Back to today's card, I haven't had time to watch as yet-too many household chores:-(, but I loved yesterday's colour scheme so it goes without saying that I adore today's offering. If I didn't have so many Christmas dies to purchase I would definitely be buying this striplet-sue reminds us yet again that her dies are just so versatile, though chopping them does feel like sacrilege! Another must have are the Configurations dies, I don't have any at the moment so hopefully one will be cheeky enough to jump into my basket next time I shop for goodies.
I am so excited, I had custody of our credit card yesterday(I have a joint account with my Mum), and I was coerced into getting the Peony dies and my first Christmas die, the corner , border and tag snowflake die. I have a long way to go with my Christmas collection, but if I buy a few a week hopefully I can get them all sooner rather than later because I'm itching to start...Ho!Ho!Ho!
Darcey was a good girl last night and decided that the prawns were too much of a temptation-Saba, only the babies are allowed prawns in our house I'm afraid, and they have to be king prawns for Brodie and M&S prawns for Darcey....they often get better fed than us!
Debs , hope your coping with the packing, I wish I could sneak into your suitcase and stowaway to Portugal with you, but no holidays allowed whilst iam attending SWAA...Sue Wilson Addicts Anonymous, the urge to buy related products is too strong just now so I am banned from discussing any ideas relating to breaks away!
Molly, what great news for you, granny Melody and your Grandad. I can't believe he still has his lovely long hair and I'm not surprised by his reaction to a wig because they aren't everyone's cup of tea. Besides i am sure he will totally rock the bald look anyway-I once shaved my hair off and it was great not having to spend ages every day washing and drying it. Good luck with the next course of treatmentxxxx
Sending healing hugs to Yvonne and my other friends who are in need of a bit of TLCXXXXX

Loads of love and crafty hugs,


Yvonne G said...

Hi Sue
Todays card, like yesterdays is really elegant. Black and gold make them so opulent and regal in my opinion. I adore the striplet dies and when you show us how to use them in a different way it makes them so much more valuable. Will watch the video a bit later. Hope you're having a wonderful time x

Still not quite up to speed with everything but definitely getting there slowly. Very eager to get on but aware that need to pace myself.
Moly - lots of love to you and nan and granddad - big hugs x
Deb C - special hugs to you too. Hope you have a fabulous holiday. If you can't be good be careful x
'P' in Wales - never been described as normal so will take that as a huge compliment - thank you x

God willing, be back tomorrow
Crafty hugs

NancyR said...

I really love all the cards, Sue! I'm new to your products and am anxious to get my first dies. I love watching the videos as I am learning an lot of new techniques and it is just fun to watch you create. Thank you for all the great ideas and products.

Yvonne G said...

Lorraine - we obviously commented at the same time. Is it really wise to let you have custody of the card? I have my doubts

Myra said...

Hi Sue,
Another stunning card and video! Love the colours and the way you have used the Striplet. Beautiful sentiment - if only we all did that!
Tried your floating sentiment technique with Peace on Earth - very pleased with the result - thanks so much!
Molly - thank you for telling us about Grandad - so pleased he can begin his next chemo session! You did make me smile about his comment about the wig! Love to you all. X
Izzy - have seen that advert - it's hilarious! Guess who got me to look at it? Saba! You see my husband presses the Mute Button when adverts come on! Drives me nuts but some adverts do too!
Have a good everyone,
Hope you've arrived safely, Sandra and family! Xx
Lots of love,

Lori said...

Thanks big bunches Sue, for sharing this gorgeous card and what a great tip!! I was struggling with a card and specific strip as to what to do with it. I love the strip, but have spent days trying to find what I wanted for my card. Did you hear me and come up with this just for me! :) I love your projects and watching your videos. You are so inspiring and talented. Thank you again sweetheart! Now I will go make my card! Hugs Lori

Hello Sue
Thank you for another inspirational video. I do wish you would get a trimmer with a safety guard though, I have to close my eyes.
I love your gold and black theme, it is so decadent looking. I love the sentiment and think Patricia summed up what we all feel about the value of kindness.

Pat L I hope that the consultants visit is a positive one for Sarah. Huge hugs for a brave little girl and best wishes for her birthday.

Izzy, look what you have started now, I found the video and passed it in to my lovely friends. It tickled me too and a visit to that supermarket will never be the same again.

Molly, can I uncross my toes now? Good girl not repeating grandaddy's words. Love and hugs for you and your Nan and Granddaddy.

Love and hugs for all

Hellooooo Sue and the Wilsonettes! I'm loving these elegant cards of gold, black and milk. They are stunning! I don't have any Striplet dies and I've probably said it before, but I will (when?) have a go with some borders that I have. Great video as always Sue. There are people who can understand written guides, so I am so glad that the step by step visual is there to keep going back to. "Thank you Sue" for all the hard work that you do, so that we can produce beautiful cards like these xx Sending love and hugs to you Sue, your mom and family x Hope you are having a bit of rest so that you can make wonderful memories at "home". Sending love and hugs to all our Wilsonettes who are hurting and in need xx Take care everyone xx Love Karen xx
