Framed Medallion

Hi crafters!  Today's video shows how to use the Double Pierced Nobles and create beautiful frames and also showcases the String Flowers as well.  I hope you have a few minutes to watch!

The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, I so love this card, I have ordered my stringed flowers but waiting for stock to come in, once I get it I can have a play, with your permission I will definitely have a go at something similar to this, just to get the idea at first then I know I will be well away, I am absolutely loving the 'A' and 'B' pierced squares and rectangles, inspirational, I love them, will you be bringing out ovals and circles as well? I do hope so. The quality of your dies are amazing.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Hi Sue,

Gorgeous card and it shows how versatile the Heraldic Square set is when you can use the centre to make the background as well as the focal point, another must-have die set and is already on the wish list...


cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
I love the card and the video and can't wait to try making one similar to yours. You know how I love your Noble dies so I wont repeat myself but all I will say to the Wilsonettes is, if it's in your budget I would highly recommend you buy them you won't regret it, they are my most 'go to' dies.

crossstitchmarg said...

Morning Sue,
A beautiful card today, I just love the Heraldic die set. I have made a few cards with it.
I might do some crafting today no looking after Grandwhikdren for me today.
Have a lovely day

Tressa said...

Having watched both John and yourself use the dies you have used in this video, I now see I have to add to my collection. The Heraldic Square is so much more useful than I initially thought - but then I haven't got the imagination to see how they can be used, I need you for that!

The end result is a beautiful card. And yes, isn't the wisteria a gorgeous colour.


Boffey6 said...

These Dies are wonderful Sue. They have made card making so much easier. Love the card its beautiful. X

Thanks so much for the video, just love the noble frames and all else just perfect. We have a mature wisteria on the west side of our house where it flourishes and the perfume is divine - as lovely as the colour. It's a total joy.
Usual hugs to Melody and Francis.

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Good evening Sue and the lovely Wilsonettes,

What a totally stunning example of your brilliance Sue, I love everything about this card, the wisteria colour is soft and feminine and perfectly suits the delicate detailing of the Heraldic Square. I love the background and clearly I have made a huge error in delaying my purchase of the pierced squares...I thought that I would get most use out of the rectangles, how daft was I?
I'm obviously going to find it very frustrating for a short time because I have invested so much time and money in the Christmas orientated cards and dies, and the newest collections have been neglected as a result. I wish money was no object but I have to prioritise saving for Christmas and presents so I have wisely/foolishly promised to curb my expenditure on craft materials....any ideas on how to cope with the severe withdrawals, particularly when Sue tempts me each and every day with her wonderful dies?
I had another trip to the GP today- tests have confirmed that my antibiotics are the wrong type to cope with my infection so I have to start from scratch on a new one....that explains why my wounds are getting worse rather than better....a side effect is sickness though which will be unpleasant, but it could be worse, I could get cellulitis like last year and end up in hospital:-(
I'm currently in bed with Darcey, with my electric blanket on and Sky+ at my disposal so life isn't that bad after all:-)
I'm super impressed with Hochanda, their delivery time is so efficient- I received my new Platinum machine at lunchtime, less than 48hrs after placing the order, a vast improvement on other leading shopping channels. My mum thinks it's because they have less customers than their competitors but I don't care, it's fantastic regardless.
Brodie has excelled himself in overriding, he hasnt stolen my last smoothie,,,,the new leather dining chairs have a higher back than the old ones and he has decided that they would serve as an ideal launch pad onto the top of our oak dresser! We've had to discourage him with a towel over the back but he was caught attempting to sharpen his claws on another chair instead- you can't have anything new with small children and animals intent on wrecking them with impunity, I despair:-(
Tracy, hope you're feeling ok honeyxxx
Molly, so sad that you can't see your Grandad yet but try and enjoy your birthday meal tomorrow, I hope you get all the gifts you wanted and have a wonderful timexxxx
Huge bear hugs to all my blog buddies, including Yvonne, Beth, Wheely bad, Theresa ,Maria, Rebecca, Jan, Deb C, Lorraine F and anyone else my solitary brain cell can't bring to mind at this precise moment:-)
Have a fab evening lovelies

Love and crafty hugs,


Norah McPhee said...

Good evening Sue and the Wilsonettes
This is a beautiful card Sue and I really love the beautiful die that you have used in the middle (the brain is on strike at its name) I really like this die and you have made many cards this past wee while with this die and all have been different but stunning. I love how you have built up the frame around about the centre and makes it look like a picture. Thank you for today's beautiful gift of pleasure,
Love and crafty hugs

The heraldic square die is wonderful, it lends itself to so many applications. Great job Sue, once again.

Happy birthday Molly case you trad the blog before school like I know you do sometimes have a wonderful day sweetheart. xXx
Little bit worried because Francis as never wanted to tell his family to much about his health because they all live in Ireland an he didn't want them rushing over, well I went an told his sister a bit more than Francis had told her an she passed it round the brothers an now one of the brothers an his wife are coming tomorrow an Francis don't know, he will be mad at me for telling them so they are going to say they just decided to pop in on a fly by visit, but I keep thinking I should tell him before they get here, now I wish I hadn't told his sister anything at all. Tracy I remember getting my wig an we had loads of fun picking it out my problem was I look so silly in it I looked like melody in a wig I was far to small for so much hair lol so I stuck to me hats. I hope your not feeling to sickly xxxx
