Using Tri-Geminis




Hi crafters!  The Tri-Gemini dies are a bit of a different twist to my Gemini collection.  They have more pieces to them, but they still fit together and have different sides that can used to create different looks with them.  Today's video will hopefully explain some of the ways in which they can be used to achieve unique styles for your crafting projects





















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

This is beautiful, love it. You are delightful too Sue
Elaine, I'm sorry Andrew is not well at the moment, hopefully the Consultant can sort it out. You have so much on your plate at the moment, you really need a good nights sleep. It takes time for the Council to gather evidence, please see your MP, tell him about your ongoing worries about Andrew, do something before you collapse with exhaustion.
Tina, I am amazed at Micks appetite, he is really trying everything. Can't believe the wrong size chair was sent out for him, causing another delay, fingers crossed its not too long for the right one to arrive.
Sending hugs to Tracey, and all who are not well on the blog.
For all Jack said he doesn't eat meat, he eats chicken nuggets, burgers and sausages and pepperoni (although not on his pizza) lol, you gotta love them.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, such a lovely card today, I must admit I don't have that die, but that is being rectified today as I have ordered it. Yes I know slapped wrists.

I reiterate and totally agree with everything that Pam has said above, it is a difficult time for so many people, special hugs to you all.

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

Hi Sue. Perfect. These dies are not a part of my family yet but hopefully still time to put that right before you launch your next collection lol.
I'm really looking forward to watching your tutorial but shall leave it for tomorrow so I can put my feet up and relax after my 2nd lot of horrible treatment. Talk about life begins at 40 lol I seem to have gone backwards since I hit that number, such is life, I'll just move on to next week when I'll start to pick up again.

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

I still remember how excited I was when I bought some of your first Geminis with their separate cutting edges so these new Tri-Gems are right up my street, especially the Centaurus with that pretty lattice insert...

Am I the only one who looked at the Antwerp diecut at the top of the card and saw Benny from the Top Cat cartoons?...I think it's the little ears at the top of the cut...

Tracy, Elaine, Nanna Tina and Wheelybad sending you my daily dose of caring hugs
It is very warm here in AntignyFrance, did some gardening yesterday evening and my husband did some odd jobs around the house for my friend, hope to get more of the garden done today or at least get it finished before we go home on Tuesday. Mind you it's lovely having your breakfast sitting outside looking out over fields to the big chateaux up on the hill

Hugs and best wishes everyone

Tressa said...

Very pretty card. I have some of the Gemini dies but had not noticed the tri-Gemini ones. I like the versatility of these dies so maybe I will have to treat myself to one of them!! I agree the use of a black background really makes the card pop, a technique I must get into the habit of using I think.

Hi Sue and everyone

How pretty is this card. I especially like the Tri - Gemini lattice with all the pearls. Will be so versatile too.

Will watch the video very soon.

Love Helen xxx

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a delightful card and informative video. The Tri-Gemini dies are so pretty and I love the lattice part of this one - such patience to stick all of those pearls on. The shadowing on this card is just enough black for me and is most effective in highlighting the beautiful detail of the dies; I really must try this.

Steph - I will be thinking of you tomorrow as you have your treatment, hope all goes well.
Thinking also of all the other poorly Wilsonettes and their husnabds/sons.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and the Wilsonettes,
I love your tri geminii's Sue as they are just so beautiful altogether or making up different looks over and over again as they can make up so many beautiful designs and shapes both in and out of the card. That tiniest of shadow below the layers in the black just pops the top layers lovely. Thank you Sue for another one of your dream makes and i can go back and watch the video when i have finished here but thank goodness these dies are ones that i do have so i can have another play with them to see what they come out with. Take care lovely lady and have a good day.
Yesterday i had my Harry from the back of 8am until Campbell came in at nearly 17:30 last night and i was shattered and sore. You'll know i went up the stairs and my head hit the pillow and that was me out for the count. He is getting around the furniture just now but that is him decided to try out this crawling lark and found he can get oh so many places that he can't get into with his walker, so if anyone finds those eyes that you can put in the back of your head, please let me know as i think i am going to need them. Yesterday would go bright through a chink in the clouds and then go awful dark and moody looking that you honestly thought that there was going to be a downpour. Today we are just covered in clouds but that's ok if it stays dry, although it can rain through the night if it would like as the plants still need watering.
Sending hugs to Tracy, Tina and Mick, Elaine and Andrew, Wheelybad, Tina E and her family and all those that need, could do with or just would like the hugs are on their way,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Great video and beautiful card. I love how you design dies with multiple uses. Let's face it, crafting comes out of our discretionary money, so we love it when we can stretch those dollars...or pounds....LOL

Have a great day.

Lorraine Freeman said...

Love the Gemini dies so triple edged just means they are even better :) Not got any yet though, something else on a very long list but as I said I must use some of the wonderful things I have already.
Going to town to meet Mum for a cuppa and have just put all the shopping away, sorted the washing and loaded the dishwasher. Once I have made dinner I shall be out for the count again, most annoying.
Glad Mick managed to sit out for a while Tina and his appetite is still good.
I hope Andrew picks up again soon Elaine and that your neighbour situation is sorted promptly.
Yvonne and Wheely I hope you are keeping well. Lynda and Maria I hope you feel better soon. Steph, I hope the treatment helps very soon.
Love n hugs for whoever else is in need.
Wishing good things to all xxx

A very delicate card today Sue, in my favourite colours again too! lol Your dies are so useful when you have the brain and eyes to see it. Or having someone who does have the brain and eyes to show us the way the way you do!! :) I'm off to make a cup of tea so I can sit down comfortably and watch the video. Thank you so much for all the help you give us.
Hugs to all in need of them today,

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW !!! What a very pretty, delicate card for today. Fab video to. I love the look of this Belgian die set. I think it is so pretty !!! I especially love how you did the black shadow effect for it to. I really love the way you are making lots of increasing and decreasing layers on your cards at the moment. They are so interesting. Just the kind of cards I love to make !!! The Centaurus tripple Gemini die looks fab on your card !!! I won this die in your die launch, and have been struggling on how to use it. Thank you so very much for this video because at long last I am finally understanding how to use it !!!!!!!! (Problem solving using my brain is practically non existent at the moment !!!) I love how you have used the frilly, Lacey part of the die and extended it to make a border right across the card, and the lattice part looks fab with all those little pearls over it. A fab colour combo to. I love many shades of the foundations blue card but I do not have this shade yet !!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful card today. Sending you lots of love Sue from Tres x x x

Sending lots of love to everyone from Tres x x x

Gorgeous card and brilliant demo and inspiration for the tri-gemini dies. Thank you so much for that x
I have the tri-gemini dies and have used them but as with most of your dies my imagination does not stretch to realising the full potential of just what can be achieved. Fabulous x
Sorry folks but still struggling with a lack of energy so again I will apologise for what appears to be a lack of interest of what is happening with you all. I can assure you that this is not the case x
Love and happy thoughts to you all
