Gilded Step Frame




Hello crafters!  As you know, I love my gilding flakes!  They just add so much elegance to any card.  Today's video shows you how to make a multi layer frame and incorporate the gilded look into your frame.  I hope you like it!

Just a quick note, the 2016 Christmas Festive die launch begins here bright and early at 6am tomorrow morning.  I hope you will be able to joins us for the reveal and get in on the fun to win one of the dies too!












The finished dimensions are 7 3/4" x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Pat, hope Sarah's doctors have good news for you all today.

Hello Sue and all
Very sumptuous card today, great video breaking it all down to steps and a gorgeous result. Love the gilding flakes frame.
Looking forward to your release, I have had a sneak peek but have to see what you do with the dies, I have a bit of a wish list and am sure it will change many times by the end of your beautiful samples.

Great card, Sue. Love black and white with gilding flakes - fab frames and am in awe of the narrow frame placements, could see things going awry for me! Falllng at the last hurdle, so to speak. Thanks for the video, always inspirational.
Hugs to poorly friends - Norah and Maria especially.
Wheely, concert sounds a blast! Glad you had a good time - recovery now.
Angela - so so sorry - don't blame yourself, kidney failure so tricky with pets. Been there too many times, but you can only trust your instincts and go with the vet's expert advice. Sooty will always be with you in your heart.
Good wishes for Andrew, Mick and Sarah.
Tracy, if you look in, thinking of you as always.
Sue, so looking forward to your take on the Christmas release dies - a few good days ahead.

Hi Sue,

Gorgeous card today, the warm colours in the gilding flakes really pop against the black card...I love using flakes and glitter especially on C cards so entirely appropriate that you used them just before tomorrow's festive dies launch...can't wait!...

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue, stunning card today, opulent and superbly elegant.
Can't wait to see what you've done with the festive collection, the dies are all beautiful and a lot of them can be used all year round (at least they will be in my hands).
The video is great, it's so good to have access to them all because I forget those lovely techniques of yours and when I see them demonstrated again I'm fine.
Hugs, Rose

Pat L said...

Hi Sue
Fabulous card and great video as always, love the gilded frame. I have cut out the Australian background and I now think I will back it with gilding flakes, must remember Stephs tip about setting it on brown paper. Festive dies tomorrow?
Sarah has just had her MRI scan, couldn't fit her in yesterday, waiting for the results and visit from the two consultants, hopefully today
Wheely glad you enjoyed the concert, rest up now!
Nanna T hope everything settles for Mick today, but what great news two grandchildren on the way!
Tracy my daily caring hugs to you and to Norah sorry you're not so well xx

Hugs and best wishes everyone

I'm not a great fan of gilding flakes but this card is really rich and so lovely. Maybe I'm changing my mind! Not changing my mind on how I'll vote today though- I'm just off to cast my vote.

Kate's Cards said...

Totally agree. Very elegant! Xxx

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, just as you said, a stunning card. I love the gilding flakes and the way you have created the frames (very tricky when they are so fine), just not so keen on the black but I think you knew that anyway lol.

Wheely - pleased you enjoyed the concert and hope you are taking time to recover.
Angela W - so sorry for you but you did your best for Sooty by loving her to the very end. Please don't beat yourself up about what if's, as 'P' said kidney failure is tricky and can strike out of the blue and at any age. What a beautiful way to remember her by planting a little tree.

Really looking forward to tomorrow. Apart from the fact it will be Friday, the referendum will be over, there is a cricket ODI to listen to but certainly not the least because we get to see Sue's new Festive dies in action - I can't wait.

Diane Green said...

Hi Sue
What a great card today, I do love gilding flakes. Thank you for the tip about the glues and dies not mixing, I like the thin boarders but know I would get in a mess, I wonder if you can make a stencil frame to put the glue through ( or just use double sided tape). One to play with I think. Thank you for sharing, I'm looking forward to seeing you the festive dies tomorrow
Love Diane G xxx

Tina I hope kick feels better as the day progresses, what exciting news, two grandchildren arriving shortly, how exciting. Xxx
Pat I hope the consultants come up with some good news for Sarah xxx

Beautiful card - reminds me of a stained glass window due to the lacy die. So pleased you explained in your video about the glue/foil technique. I had wondered about it when you made a previous card but did not like to say. Thanks.

STELLA MUNN said...

Really terrific card for our men-folk (minus the pearls etc). I have the square & rectangle double pierced frame dies & use them lots. I do think it's a shame though that you have to have the 2 sets of each to make a narrow border - unfortunately I'm not able to afford, or justify, buying 2 of each, so miss out on the narrow frames.

Another beautiful card. Pat I hope it's good news for Sarah. Tina I hope Mick is feeling better, two grandchildren how lovely.

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Good evening lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

What a gorgeously ornate concoction, a real treat for the eyes. The combination of the gilding flakes, black and coconut white card is so striking and ensures that minimal adornments are required. The noble frames are definitely an essential part of our crafting arsenal and achieve such professionally looking frames. I haven't had a chance to watch your fantastic demo yet, I'm saving it as a treat for later when the tv is inundated with referendum coverage. Can I just say that I adored yesterday's card but felt that it would be wrong of me to comment on the weekly giveaway when I've not been commenting regularly this past week or so. Good luck in the draw ladies:-)
I've been unable to comment much lately because I am being plagued by seizures at the moment and computer screens become a problem as a result. I've tried to catch up as best I can but apologies if I fail to acknowledge something significant.
I didn't expect it to be basically warm and sunnyish today so I was pleasantly surprised...it was rather fortunate because the gardeners arrived to completely gut our garden of the plants and rubbish left by the previous tenent....Darcey will be miffed because she loved to lie and hide in the long foliage and bushes:-(
We popped round to a friends house for drinks and carrot cake this afternoon and upon our return my mum couldn't find the house keys. Just as she was about to have a meltdown, our neighbour arrived keys in hand telling us that we had left them in the door!??!! What a lucky escape, anything could have happened......
Really looking forward to tomorrow and the beginning of the Blogathon, I've cheated and already peeked at the collection but nothing beats seeing Sues own interpretation of the dies, it brings them to life as only she can.
Angela, I'm so sorry for your loss, it's heartbreaking to lose our babies regardless of the circumstances. You did your absolute best for Sooty but it was kind to end her suffering when you did, please don't feel guilty you did the right thing for her....often we can cling on to those we love despite their discomfort when in reality it is time to let go for their sake. The loss is palpable and stays with you for a long time...I've just had the anniversary of my Gizmos passing under similar circumstances and you never stop missing them regardless of the passage of time. Sending you comforting hugsxxxx
Pat, how awful for you and poor Sarah having her operation cancelled again at the last minute...I've had the same thing happen to me when I was prepped for a shunt procedure only for the consultants to change their minds.....it is so frustrating:-( I do hope that the MRI helps shed some light on the situation and that the operation can be rescheduled successfully. Thinking of you allxxx
Tina, congrats on your imminent arrivals, how exciting for you and Mick, things are really starting to look up for you, you deserve some good fortunexxx
Tracy, hope both yo and Dad are okay, you are worryingly quiet of latexx
Wheely bad, glad you managed to cope with and enjoy your concert, now all you need to do is rest and recuperate....with the help of Billy:-)
Yvonne, hope you're feeling a bit more recovered after your recent exploits and can join us for the new launch over the coming daysxx
Sending my usual hugs to Beth, P, Pam, Rebecca, Maria, Theresa, Linda, Lorraine, Jan, Frances and all my blog buddiesxxx
