Hi Sue. Beautiful card but for some reason the video won't play properly on the laptop today, so as soon as I've written this I'm going to find a different gadget to watch it on. Have a fabulous time at the CHA, I'll bet it's an Aladdin's cave of crafty goodies.
Congratulations Debra on your win. Hugs to all. Sue XXX

Beautiful card Sue, love the colours.

Janice K said...

Good morning Sue. Another stunning card and great tutorial, thank you. I must remember to use my embossing powder on other elements of my cards, I tend to restrict it to just a stamped image, yet I can see from this design that it looks very good on frames and die cuts too.
Congratulations to Debra.x

A beautiful card. Love the colour used. Seems some Adirondack inks are now having to go on the shoping list along with the myriad of other things which I am struggling to prioritise. Hope the CHA goes well.

Gosh Sue, this is beautiful love the way you have done the background and what a great tip for the sentiment, one I will certainly be trying. Thank you for sharing, Such a beautiful card and as usual a great video.

Anonymous said...

Great video. Do you ever apply the ink to the inside of the embossing folder to achieve the inking step and the embossing/debossing at the same time? Does that make sense?

Beautiful card today....always thankful for videos....I'm such a visual learner.

Jan D., Florida, USA

Bejay Roles said...

Lovely and awesome card today. I will have to wait until later today to view your video. Thank you for sharing your creations with us crafters.

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
This card is divine. You are a super-talented person, the way you use all the dies and embossing the sentiment is just a masterstroke! I shall certainly adopt that technique.
Have a great time at the CHA.
Hugs, Rose

hettygarlick said...

That's beautiful and I love the effect of the heat embossing. I would never have thought of doing it on the background card like that. I learn something new every day from you Sue!

Dorothy Macdonald said...

Hi Sue,

Loved watching your informative video, also what a beautiful card, just my favourite colour too.

Different techniques throughout, loved the heat embossing too. (Old favourite of mine, so must try and use it more often).

Love n hugs from Dorothy of Baldock

Lorraine Freeman said...

I will watch the video later Sue but the card is lovely :)
Weefortune, I am so sorry for your loss.
Laine, I had a set of circle dies (not SW!) and have two presents on their way one of which could be more dies. All orders have arrived and I now have £20 Amazon credit plus more cash to spend. I am so lucky. I hope Darcy is better now. I do not envy you the task of getting cats into baskets.
Maria A, thank you I had a lovely but tiring day, I was too exhausted to go out in the evening.
Hazel T, I hope you had a wonderful 60 th.
Congratulations Debra.
Thanks to Frances, Theresa, Cheryl and Long Island Jan for my birthday wishes. I appreciate them all.
Wheely, thank you too. I hope the migraines continue to ease.
My head does not like me today but I have popped along to a friend's open house to look at the new Stamping up catalogue. It's very nice stuff but expensive and I would rather spend my money on Sue items. Made a pretty thank you card so that will be very useful. At least I can combine Christmas and Birthday :)
Going to chat to my Mum and the see if daughter wants to watch some tv. If not then I shall play with some goodies.
Wishing good things to all xxx

A very lovely card Sue. I am looking forward to watching the video, as I have several new ones to catch up on. When I'm folding clothes I sit and watch Sue all morning, it makes laundry a chore to look forward to.

America said...

Love the Color and brilliant to heat-emboss the framing as well as sentiment for super lovely shine that makes this such a beauty! (I also like to off-set sentiments with extra layer in a darker tone to make it pop even more). Adding the extra layers always creates a great look of amazing dimension and I love that you've done that here. Fabulous way to use longer multi-ribbons too. So gorgeous. Another great Video!
