Frilly Channel card

Hi bloggers!  Today's video card is sort of like a petticoat card that has been morphed into a channel card, but the results are very pretty I think.  I hope you like it!

The finished dimensions are 7 3/4" x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue. What a beautiful start to the day. So much colour, such a gorgeous design. I thought yesterday's had the wow factor, today's puts a happy smile on your face that's for sure, it's soo pretty.

Again, with Sue's blessing, Id like to send my thoughts and prayers to Tina E & Paul, and the mummy & daddy of sweet little Evie, this morning they kiss goodnight to their sweet angel. I have updated a message on Tina's blog for those lovely dear friends that have supported the family since we were first told of the devastating heartbreak.
Sweet dreams little angel.

Thank you Sue xx

I love it when your card is made using dies I have...I'm such a visual learner. Beautiful card and great video today.

I used to use wax paper, but sometimes found it left a slight sheen on my card stock--not always, but sometimes depending on the type and weight of the card, so I've switched to using parchment paper. It works the same and if you are doing any inking on your die cuts you don't have the sheen and/or slight "resist" effect that the wax causes. It's dirt cheap, too....I buy it at the Dollar Store. LOL Sometimes the parchment paper die cut stays in the die and when that happens, I leave it in there and keep using it until it falls's like spraying Pam on a baking sheet.

Thanks for another wonderful card today. Have a great day!

Hi Sue, a very pretty card indeed. I don't usually go for just quite so much frill but I really like this card, the blue suits the style perfectly and I actually think I will try making something like this with the dies I have.

Tracy - glad you are coping so well with the radiotherapy. They will have to resurface the road by the time you have finished all that travelling lol.

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Good evening lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

Another fantastic demonstration to delight us with....I haven't had a moment to watch it today but I will be sure to find the time now I have a moment to relax. I love the petticoat concept, your dies lend themselves beautifully to this particular idea, the layers remind me of the old fashioned lace petticoats that I would love to have worn....don't know if I would like the accompanying corsets though:-)
I really like a channel card, I've done a fair few in recent months and I love the effect. Once again fabulous dies used to their maximum potential by a crafting that gushy enough for you Sue, I can feel you reddening with embarrassment from here:-)
I've had a manic day, popped into town to open up a bank account and get my hair cut and dyed.....need a separate bank account to put my respite award money into so that the transactions can be accounted for, didn't have the proper ID so have to return on Monday, it's not so straightforward as I imagined:-(.....on my way to the hairdressers passed by a lovely little clothes shop that I just couldn't walk past and ignore, it had a lovely coral lace dress in the window that was just my size and begging to be given a home....not to mention the fact that the Radley handbag and purse my mum has just got me for my birthday matches perfectly....I tried it on before seeing a black sparkly fringed number with £150 off it which also fitted like a glove, decisions, decisions....what the heck! Buy both! So an expensive afternoon with my hair factored in, any advice on how I now convince my mum that I NEED more of Sues dies tomorrow night?
Feeling exhausted now but it's worth it because that offending tramlines of grey down my parting is now all but a distant memory:-)
Tina, my heartfelt sympathies on today's sad event, hopefully you can all begin the long healing process now, my thoughts are with youxxxx
Tracy, you must be exhausted honey, that's a real trail for you every day, however, it's all for the best and you're only two weeks away from the finishing line:-) I hope that you have a treat planned for yourself, you deserve it after the tremendous fight and spirit you have shown over the past few months....maybe a die or three this weekend?:-)
Beth, hope you're enjoying your time off work, are you managing to get anymore crafting done? What news of the MDF structure that fought back?
Yvonne, I hope you have been suitably busy on my behalf today, those stamps won't stamp themselves after all!:-) Did you manage to satisfy your fetish by getting some of that holiday laundry out on the line? Are you suitably myself...about tomorrow night?
P, love to you and Miss Pushy, hope she's still feeling wellxxxx
Cuddles to all our poorly four paws including Lauren, Annie and Scampxxxx
Hugs to all my besties, you know who you are my dearsxxxxx
Have a lovely evening ladies......

Gorgeous card. Love the petticoat layers and all the pearls. Enjoyed the video. Informative as always but today it had an added touch for me. I had inadvertently switched on the subtitles and when it came to the bit where you said run over the die with the Tool'n One, the text said "give a quick run over with my children 12". lol!
I'm hoping to watch some of the weekend shows online. Wish Hochanda was available on Virgin.
Take care everyone.
