For You

Good Sunday morning all!  I think this post will go live long before I do today! LOL   I hope you enjoyed the One Day Special shows!  I will be filming a live show from Ally Pally next weekend and then one more One Day Special a few days after that!  For today's card, I have done a bit of triple stamping!  I just love this technique, it is one of those that never seems to miss in my book.  I cut three pieces of coconut white card in squares with about 3/4" difference in size and stacked them a top each other.   I used the stamp called Heart of Blessings that matches the Heart of Hearts die and inked it with a Black Archival ink pad.  I stamped it all over the background so that it caught several of the layers at once.  Next I added thin black mats to each of the stamped layers so that the small area between each mat where the stamp doesn't reach becomes covered by the mats and your eye completes the image.  I coloured each of the images with Distress markers to add a tiny pop of pink and green to the background, then added mounting foam to raise each of the layers.  Finally I stamped one more, coloured it and placed a piece of sticky adhesive sheet over it, cut it out with the matching die, and glittered it with Diamond Sprinkles.  I then added a black mat and attached it to the centre of the card.  I completed the card with a white pierced mat, a thin black mat and a last white mat layer.  The finished dimensions are 8 1/4" x  8 1/4" in size.

The winners of this week's comment game are:

Theresa G!!!
Lilian in Cornwall!!!
Patricia Howarth!!!

Congratulations all!  Please email me at to confirm your address and claim your prize.  All for now, Sue x

Such a lovely card. So clever.
I managed to watch a couple of your shows on Hochanda before the iPad started to misbehave, it was great to see you looking so well, Sue.
Congrats to comment game winners
Daily hugs to all, including Melody, Molly, Tracey, Tina and family.

A pretty but unusual card. Unfortunately I won't be trying this one as I am no longer able to stamp but it doesn't stop me enjoying it. Thanks, Sue.

Great use of the stamps, love how they continue over the layers and of course smart black and white.

Morning Sue. WOW This is a beautiful card which could be used for many occasions. The soft colours just make this image pop. Watched all your great shows and as always learned something new. Great to hear you will be back very soon, will just have to save my pennies again lol. Hope you can have a few days off before your busy schedule starts all over again. Congratulations to all the comment winners.
Best Wishes.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Sunday Smiles coming your way Sue. I really really enjoyed your show's yesterday, you looked like you enjoyed every minute of every demo. The sample cards and the cards you made on the show's were truely beautiful and full of inspiration (which is why our little black box is full of crafting show's going way back lol) and watching those early show's it's hard to believe how your techniques and style has changed since bringing in your own die collection, so if a mere craft hobbyist like me can see that, imagin what you are doing for us in respect of improvement and confidence. The card photo's that viewers sent in yesterday we're fabulous and must make your heart sing to think that it's down to you and the tools you provide that help us create such gorgeous work. Must get that mounting foam sheet ordered on Tuesday. So many of us on fb we're asking about the foam you use, and it's available to us now too - whoop whoop 😊
Triple stamping, love it, I bought this stamp when it first came out but its not left the packet yet ! I have 3 wedding cards to re-make to re-stock those I sold last week, so I'm making a pact with myself to use it on one of them, and the other heart flower stamp on another, so thank you for giving me a swift kick to get my act together. The science behind triple stamping is spot on too.
Looking forward to your up and coming show's both at AP and in the studio. Would love to go to AP but many a reason why I can't and won't - (finances and health being the main reason) maybe one day 😊
I don't suppose it's on the agenda for today, but I hope you manage a lie in for one, and some rest time to boot !
Well done winners.

Marion Bull said...

Love this card Sue, and love this technique too! Really enjoyed the shows yesterday but still have two more to watch. Can't come to Ally Pally this year but will look forward to all your future shows. Thanks for all the inspiration.

I watched most of your shows yesterday, just watching your last show now that I recorded.
Congratulations to all the winners.
Have a lovely day today.

Tina T said...

Good morning Sue,
Thank you for another unusual card, the triple stamping this way is fun, rather than stamping on three separate pieces of card and hope you have got them lined up the same. No flowers or bows!!!!
Thank you for all your fantastic demos yesterday. Hochanda need to get both yourself and Julia a lower work surface for you can work comfortably.
Waiting for your next shows as cannot get to Ally Pally as I have difficulty in walking round at the moment.
Love and crafty hugs
Tina T 💐 xxx

Lovely card Sue, missed 2 shows yesterday.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, oh such a stunning card today, it really does bring stamping into it's own, love the technique of putting the thin black card behind each layer to bring out the design.

Saw most of your shows yesterday Sue and they were as usual wonderful, you will have to stand on a step next time as the table was a bit high. Wonderful demos too.

Congratulations to all the winners

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

Hi Sue, cannot contain my excitement !!!!!!!!! I'm a winner, thank you so much.

The card is lovely,might try it in a different colour, I'd have to make it a bit smaller, as have the misty tool to help my poor old hands
Think it might be great for this technique.

Saw one of your shows yesterday, great to see you back, you are THE BEST demonstrated on TV. Will watch the rest on computer on catch up which I understand they have now.

Best Wishes Lilian in Cornwall

Hi Sue
Gorgeous card, love the triple stamping and your colouring which you demonstrated yesterday. Loved all the shows and you looked as if you enjoyed every minute too. I'm So pleased that CE are doing sheets of mounting foam and I must find out where I can buy them online, I don't order from craft channels as their postage charges are out of order

Congratulations to all the winners this weekend
Hugs and best wishes everyone

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
when I opened your blog today I went WOW! Something completely unexpected but lovely. I'm not a hearts fan but this card is lovely. And you've reminded me, I must do triple stamping again - the results are so lovely.
I hope that after your marathon yesterday you are in "lazy" mode, seeing that it'll be all systems go next weekend (and I dare say a lot of preparatory work before then), I hope the sun is shining and you're being cossetted today.
Hugs, Rose

Tracy Stitt said...

Morning sue.

Card is smashing just enough little bits of colour in it too. I wasn't good at the stamping part when I tried the technique so gave up lol.

Shows were great yesterday caught a couple and recorded the others so I'll catch them up today were fantastic as always. Alex is my favourite presenter tho she's always enthusiastic about ur stuff and at least lets u demo!! Lol x

Yorks butterfly said...

Morning Sue, a lovely card for us today, I love the triple stamp technique but forget about it so it is nice to be reminded of it, as I don't do much stamping. Enjoyed your shows on Hochanda but have not seen them all so will have to watch the rest on catch-up

SueJ said...

This is a great technique and the card is lovely.
Iv'e been absent for a few days due to the family descending on me for the last few days.
The cards posted are all lovely.

Congratulations to all the winners, enjoy your prizes.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I do hope you managed to sleep in this morning or at least have breakfast in bed, it is Sunday, after all. I enjoyed all of your shows and will be re-watching all the demo's today and during the next week. Already looking forward to your next shows. Today's card is lovely, I enjoy triple stamping and it never ceases to amaze me how effective it can be. Although not a hearts fan I think this stamp lends itself perfectly to the technique and I love the glittered sentiment.

Congratulations to all the comment game winners, enjoy your prizes.

Hi Sue
A nice clean card. I love the triple stamping. Tried recording your shows yesterday,but it seems that Hochanda is not available on Free View at the moment, so unless I can find it on my laptop,I will have to wait until May when the progamme returns. No idea why it has disappeared?

Sheila Hodges said...

Morning Sue, beautiful card as ever! Yes caught the one day special pity we can only watch online means we can't record to follow your processes but noticed your regular comments about watching demos on Utube.
Keep up the wonderful inspiration.

Paula said...

Wow, what a lovely card, and how unusual! :) I've bought a few stamps and some new ink pads, I have probably hundreds (okay, maybe not that many) of stamps from the days when I bought everything Dawn Bibby said I needed way back when! But they are all in boxes and I have no idea where I put them when I realised I wasn't a natural stamper. But I've decided to have another go, if successful you may see me making a card like this. :) I have so much trouble with my hands because of arthritis nowadays, so I have no idea if I will be able to stamp. We'll see.
Congratulations to the winners today, and hugs to all in need.

Very pretty and very unusual. I am not one for stamping, but have recently bought a few of Phill's stamps and some embossing powder and perfect medium and am gearing up to have a practice! As you said in one of your w/e demos, 'it's only a piece of card', so if I mess up I'll just turn it over and have another go!!!!! Watch this space......oh heck! Thanks for the wonderfully inspiring Hochanda demos, Sue. Fab xx

Dawn Holben said...

Sue this is a fabulous card and I love the triple stamping technique.
I think you have got the colour for this one absolutely perfect.

And I must congratulate you on the wonderful shows on honchanda, I enjoyed every single demo
and loved every single card you made especially the card with the zig zag die and the one where you put selotape
around the edge of the card and glittered it. I do appologise at the description lol
Hope you manage a lay in today you deserve the rest especiallly with ally pally coming up.

Love this card - triple stamping is such a wonderful technique. Glad your shows went well and hope you get some time to put your feet up today! Susan x

Bejay Roles said...

Hi Sue,
I keep meaning to try this technique as it's always fascinated me. I love the stamp you've used for this one and the focal heart is just too pretty with all the sparkle on it.
I would have commented earlier but I've been up to my elbows in freezing water trying to sort out my latest project...turning an old 5' water tank into a little pond for the garden. It's a work in progress to be sure as I had to take the few plants I had in there out this morning to try and sort out the soil I put in the bottom...what joy. All I can say is the temperature of the water really woke me up lol.
Amaryllis's the moment we've all been waiting for...the first two buds are fully open at last :). The base of the flowers are very pale green and this colour stays as a thin line up the middle of the petal. The rest bleaches out into the palest cream/white I've ever seen. The tips of some of the petals have a touch of a pale cerise border. I'm thinking that the original bulb had all the petals edged with colour but somehow just having a splash here and there makes them that much more special :)

Congrats to the winners this week, Lillian, that's the closest a comment winner has been to me, well done and fly the flag for Cornwall lol.

Enjoy the rest of the day and happy crafting.
Bejay xx

Tressa said...

Absolutely stunning card Sue. Love it. Not into hearts but I am sure there are other stamps which would give an equally gorgeous card. We did some stamping and colouring with Julia last week and really enjoyed it so am going to have to get some appropriate stamps to do it again. I certainly want to try your technique.

Hi Sue, I've just seen my name on the list of Comment Winners, I am over the moon, thank you so much. Congratulations to Theresa and Lilian also.

I tried to watch as much as I could yesterday, although since Freeview is off until May I have to watch via a HDMI lead from my laptop onto my TV, which is great, better than not being able to watch at all haha, but I haven't got the ability to record, so will be trying to see if the catch-up works in the same way.

This is a beautiful card, I love this technique.
Thank you once again.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

DeeDee7770 said...

Lovely card Sue. Very delicate pattern and a hint of colour. This is such a pretty stamp and die. I hope you are having a nice quiet relaxing Sunday.

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. Such a pretty card. I have the die and the stamp so should be able to create something similar. I did enjoy your shows on TV and look forward to hopefully seeing you on Saturday at Ally Pally. We have had the house on the market for the last 7 months and I am afraid if they arrange viewings on Saturday that will have to take priority.

Beautiful card & love the Heart of Hearts Die with Matching stamp, must get those as they're another must have for my collection.
Love the way you have stamped all 3 layers together & with the black mats really makes them pop & looks amazing.

Nice card, Sue, love the way the triple stamping with the matting deceives the eye! Have a previous one with this technique 'saved' to remind me to have a go.
Bejay - amaryllis sounds fab! g.luck with pond.
Well done to all the comment winners.
Sorry late - been on the 450 mile round trip to see aunt who will be 103.5 tomorrow.
Left at 6.30 back at 9 - long day and hungry critturs waiting.

'P' in Wales

Sue - apologies, you'll know why. Totally inappropriate, but still v.upset.

Hi Sue

I like today's card, like many, I have moved away from stamping except for sentiments these days. I really like stamping though so will try and reintroduce this.

Your shows were excellent yesterday, I still have one to watch as well so I'm pleased about that. I can understand why you would get a little nervous before shows, but can definitely say that it does not come through to the viewers. You are a true professional! I think the fact you do get a little nervous makes you even more endearing.

I made my in-laws an anniversary card using the beautiful lattice window striplet yesterday. It is on my mantelpiece at the moment. I have to say that I have taken great pleasure looking at it, it is definitely one of my favourite dies. I hope my in laws like it. I can't wait to make other cards with it.

Bejay, good luck with the pond. The amaryllis sounds like a lovely delicate colour. I hope you enjoy.

Love Helen xxx

Gorgeous card. Your One day special shows I was only able to catch one and a bit. Part of the first one as my internet was rubbish and I saw all of the last they were great, very inspirational.
