Framed Fancy Background




Hi crafters!  Using a single small configurations die, you can make an entire background.  It looks great when paired up with the Double Pierced Square Nobles to make a pretty frame.

Morning Sue. This is a beautiful card. The rich plum colour card is gorgeous and teaming it with the milk card makes it a very rich looking card. I have both the square and rectangle noble dies and i wonder what i did before you brought them out as i use them all the time. Very versatile dies.
Take care everyone.
Best Wishes.

Hello Sue!
Lovely card, and I can't imagine not having the Squares, and Rectangles anymore, they sit by my Calibur all the time!
Thank you Sue for designing them. After Spellbinder stopped the large Dies, if you hadn't bought them, then you were up the creek ! But not anymore!!!!! and they are PIERCED! Hooray!
I'm off to watch and take notes from the Video!
Take care
Love Marg

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
What an exquisite card, the background is gorgeous and had me fooled once again lol! I thought it was one of border dies until I watched the video. This is the only configuration die that I don't have but its on order and should be here this week. Your configuration dies are so clever and work with all our dies I'm using them on my Christmas cards to 'pretty up' dies I've had for years. I love the colour of the cardstock you've used and must get some.

Rosemarie said...

Morning Sue, a very regal card today, which would look great in other colours as well. Like others have said. What did we do before the noble dies. I only have the square ones at the moment (Santa please take note) but I do tend to make a lot of square cards, they give more time for playing and less on wonky measuring. The configuration dies are brilliant too, so much you can do with them. You are one cleaver lady.

Love Rosemarie x x

A truly opulent card today, that rich burgundy is so pretty and the frames just set off the card brilliantly.

Warm thoughts for Tracy, Melody & Francis. I hope your day becomes kinder for you.

Well done Molly for getting your Hochanda shares, that is a very sensible thing to do, I hope you will get more pleasure every time you watch their programmes, all the time knowing you own a piece of all the action.

My immediate reaction on seeing your finished background was that it was overly busy, but then......... As you started to put it together then added the inner frame and sentiment it suddenly popped, it was no longer busy but beautiful. The colour combination is gorgeous. Thanks.

Bejay Roles said...

Morning, Sue,
Hi everyone. I adore the colours used on today's card, Sue and the pierced frames are to die for! I think my biggest craft 'fault' is that I continuously fail to think out of the box so never seem to come up with great ideas to try with my dies. I feel like writing out 100 lines...I must try harder...I must try harder LOL.
Right, off to watch the video, oh, before I do...is it only me or do others sometimes have a problem getting the video to full page from the blog link? Sometimes I have to go direct to YouTube to enable me to utilise the full screen option.

Lorraine Freeman said...

Sue, I love today's card and your use of one die to make the background. The double pierced frames are another need.
I paper pieced with the eternal rings yesterday. I cut three into a panel and then filled in. Fantastic effect, thanks again.
Tracey, I am glad you find the arnica helpful. I hope you are less sore today. Your poor Mum hope she is safe for a while.
Linda, you will have to let me know how to recognise you. I have uploaded an up to date photo.
Laine, heartfelt sympathies for the awful headaches you suffer.
Sarah, how wonderful to have a craft room. I will get one when my youngest moves out but I don't want her to go so it's a double edged sword.
Melody and Francis, I continue to send you positive and loving vibes.
Well it's another grey old day here again, my daughter has a friend over so I will craft at the table whilst they play video games or watch movies.
Wishing good things to all

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi there Sue. Gorgeous card today. Just love what configuration dies I own unfortunately your large peicered dies may never be part of my collection due to finances but that's life, have to cut our clothes accordingly these days ! Will watch the video later when I know I will stay awake to watch it as my morning has been dashing from one appointement to another and I'm popped with no concentration and my mojo has been completely squished !! How can we own so much card, and have a collection of dies but not ideas in our mind's, but that's the point where I'm at, I'm so mentally shattered that I walk into my 'lady den' and walk straight out again !!
So for now I will continue to love and admire what you have for us and hope my own interest returns soon.
Whatever your plan's for the day, hope you have a warm sunny one (unlike up North where it's thick dirty looking fog) : (
Sending hugs.

Beautiful card today!!! I have been checking by the blog but it's been awkward as I'm having an extension at home and let's just say it's been chaos!!! It'll be worth it in the end I'm sure!

Sorry I missed yesterday! I'm trying to keep up but after being away at the weekend we are off again on Thursday!

I particularly likes yesterday's card - lots of work but very very effective. I like today's too but not so much as yesterday's.
To all who are unwell - my thoughts are with you.
To those going through difficult times I send love to you too.
Lots of love, Myra xxx

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a beautiful card and I love the rich plum. Very clear video but did I really hear you say 'quick and easy' ? It would take me all morning just to cut and place the dies for the background!

We escaped the fog of the last few days and had lovely bright days but it seems to be our turn today. The fog/mist seems to be getting thicker as the day wears on and I haven't seen Norah's hills all day. Take care if you are out and about in it.

Beautiful card! Enjoyed watching your video on this card. Thank you. You have inspired me to make a LOT of the die cuts and layer them over a sticky sheet to create a background layer that is so very interesting and lovely! I really like your newest pierced square and pierced retangle dies. Awesome! Hope you will make a set of pierced retangles that are as John Next Doors calls "Oblong" and that they can be found in the USA.

Hello sue an everyone I love video days but I can't watch it again it saying something about the flash player so I waiting for dad to get home from work because he always makes it work. But I think the card looks really pretty an I love all the little dots round the card I still think the ones you do yourself with the poke tool looks better but it's good to have all the sizes because I can't ever make them the right size.
Thank you everyone who still sending kind words for my grandad he is really not well today nan took him to hospital in middle of the night an they are still there now so nan might not comment today. Thank you everyone Molly oxoxox

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Good evening Sue and the lovely Wilsonettes!

Yeah, video day! I love your demonstrations, they are so informative and concise, I never fail to learn something useful that I can then apply to my own Cardmaking. The colour tones used today are simply stunning, one of my favourites, it is so warm, inviting and autumnal, just perfect for this time of year. On the surface this card appears rather simple and straight forward, and in some senses it is, but the time and patience needed to create the gorgeous background elevates it for me. I stupidly didn't buy the square pierced noble set when I bought its partner the rectangle, and now I'm kicking myself- I will have to rectify this mistake as soon as the expense of Christmas has passed.
Speaking of the festive season, the panic is now starting surface- whilst the inner child in me gets excited, the adult worries about making it perfect for everyone, the presents, the food, the expectations, it all seems so clinical nowadays. I can't claim to be of the generation where a satsuma, apple and one present was the norm, but when I was a little girl in the eighties we didn't get luxury gifts throughout the year, they were reserved for birthdays and Christmas therefore the wonder and specialness was maintained. But consumerism has taken hold and children seem to get what they want on demand and don't respect or value their possessions. Gosh, I still have presents from back then in near perfect condition because I knew how hard it was for my mum, a single parent, to get me them. I wish there wasn't so much media pressure but I fall into the trap every year as many of us do. I like to make things for my loved ones if I can, I have done a set of four Art Deco cross stitch pictures that I am going to get framed for my brother and I get a lot of satisfaction from making my own cards too...though if time runs out I have been known to buy some shock!horror!
With Brodies help/hiderance I am soldiering on with my cards and really enjoying playing with texture paste and copious amounts of glitter and lacquer- it transports me back to my youth when we used to make our own at school with crepe paper and that glue that smelt of fish:-) does anyone have any idea where Sue and the CE team get the beautiful gilded easels/card stands from- I would like to buy some for close family and friends to use instead of making them out of card which is time consuming and such a waste of card.
Beth, hope you are feeling okay, missing youxxx
Yvonne, are you being a good girl and getting plenty of rest before your pyrotechnic spectacular this weekend? Are you planning to spoil your guests with fudge and Eton mess...I'd be gate crashing if I lived in the vicinity but if it's a clear night we might be able to enjoy the display in Central Scotland:-)
Molly and Melody, so sorry to hear about Francis having to go to hospital, I hope it's a minor blip as he has been trying so hard recently. All my love and best wishes to you all.
Tracy, thinking of you too as you wait for confirmation of your results, hope you are managing to distract and recuperatexxx
Huge hugs to all my blog buddies, particularly those struggling with ill health or personal difficultiesxxx

Love and crafty hugs,
