You're Wonderful

Hello bloggers!  I love a card with a frame and this is no exception!  I started by cutting a multi layered frame out of both Duck Egg blue and milk card using the Stitched Lattice Frames die set.  I used the largest and smallest die to create the milk frame and the two largest dies to create the duck egg blue frame and I added mounting foam to both to give them dimension.  Next I cut the Pictor Tri- Gemini die in milk card.  I cut two of one shape and two of the other shape and backed all of them with duck egg blue card.  The longer shapes were added to the inside of the frame on the longer side and the shorter Geminis were added to the shorter side. I cut the Lattice portion of the die set out of milk card and seated the entire frame over it.  I covered a piece of milk card with a sticky adhesive sheet and then glittered it with Iced Snow.  The entire frame was seated over the glittered sheet so it showed through the lattice area.  I stamped a sentiment then created a frame from the Belgian tag die using both duck egg and milk card and seated it over the sentiment.  I attached it in the centre of the frame and added my usual mats and layers to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Just lovely, the sentiment is for you Sue
Elaine, so happy that Andrew seems to have turned that corner, it will make you more settled too.
Tina, I feel so sorry for Mick, he wants to be home so much but his health is suffering, I hope they can resolve it soon.
Steph, I hope your treatment plan is sorted today.
Hugs to all, especially Tracey and her family and our missing friends.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, another winner today with this card, I so love the pierced lattice die, so versatile and also the smaller gemini's, looks fab on here in the duck egg blue.

Special hugs go to Elaine, Andrew, Tina, Mick, Steph and Tracey, as well as anyone else who would like one.

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

Morning Sue, beautifully layered and sparkly card today, love it,

thank you,

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. There will be many of us sending this sentiment your way today and everyday so please believe each and everyone that says it.
I will admit that you and your frame dies are to blame for my frame obsession and you can't deny it, you sent me gaga at first until I invested in the set B square collection to go with the original set and everything got framed, but I just can't manage the rectangle and circles sets just yet but in time I hope I will own them. I need the lattice too, maybe a bravery treat for myself once I can get out again after today.
It's a beautiful gift today Sue, but there again everyday spent with your blog is a beautiful gift, so hugs are coming your way along with a lovely day I hope xx

Lovely card, Sue, do like that lattice set but can't justify at the moment. Wouldn't
be without the noble rectangles, though, lots of outings there!
Hugs all round, especially Tracy, Tina and Mick, Elaine and Andrew, and extra to Steph for today.
Where is the battling duo - you okay L & Y? Missing the banter.

Hello Sue

I have set A and B Squares so still practicing my framing not as thin as yours but almost!
I love how you have framed this card so pretty with the Blue.
Love Marg

A Happercrafter6 said...

Lovely card Sue. I use my square frames a lot, but don't make enough cards (too many other hobbies) to justify buying the rectangular or circular ones. That's not to say I don't think about it!

Hi Sue
What a pretty card today, really loving the milk and duck egg blue colours together. You have such gorgeous colours in your range, I have to admit to going to our local craft shop which stocks a fair amount of colours and having a drool and stroke of the packets before walking away. One day, if we don't eat for a couple of weeks I could buy one of each 😀. Don't think that would go down very well do you!! Thank you for sharing.
Love Diane G xxx

Bejay Roles said...

Morning, Sue,
A stunning card today with a beautiful sentiment. Love the duck egg blue card and that stitched lattice frame seems to have found its way onto my wish list lol.

Well, after a dull and miserable day yesterday, which forced me into getting the lounge room ready for me to roll up the carpet and paint the ceiling and walls this weekend in readiness for a new carpet arriving next week, this morning the sun is out to play again...although there are a few clouds. I have to go out a bit later this morning so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will stay dry for me as it's way too muggy to even think about putting a jacket on...there's nothing worse than breaking out in a sweat while in the queue to pay in Poundland lol.
As well as the new carpet I've got a new lawn coming next week as well. I havbe to admit that I've cheated and have ordered some really lifelike artificial grass as I only need a piece 2m x 2m and it's working out cheaper than chippings, my first choice, or real grass as if I went down that road as well as ordering the turf I would also have to buy a new mower which would cost more than the new ready made lawn. Also it doesn't matter if I'm not ready to lay it when it arrives as it can just stay rolled up for a few days...what fun!!

Sending healing vibes to everyone who needs them, hugs to everyone and good thoughts to all our Wilsonettes unable to join us right now. {{{hugs}}}

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I wondered why this card did not grab me immediately as your cards mostly do but as I scrolled down I realised that it was the colours on my laptop. The first picture looks very creamy and rather busy but the other pictures show as almost white and it altered my mind immediately. Isn't it strange the way just a slight difference in shading can completely change your perception of something. Lovely card.

Hello buddies, no idea how I missed so many days on the blog. Cards have been up to the usual standard which is great, think my favourite was the rosette with the Gillian die.
I hope Mick has improved so he can avoid hospital but sounds like he needs some help from the GP at least. Hugs for you both xxx
Steph, I hope your treatment plan is sorted today and that it's not as scary as you fear.
Tracy, my friend had inflammatory breast cancer, is that the same? I hope you have kicked it's butt permanently anyway my dear xxx.
Elaine, so good to hear how Andrew is doing and yay to your peaceful nights.
Yvonne, I am so sorry that the boys have not resolved their differences yet. I hope it's not too much longer. Glad you had a great trip to the theatre and I hope the weather suits you over the next few days.
I am afraid I have forgotten what else I was going to comment on but hugs are here if needed.
I have loved the hot sunny days but yesterday afternoon it started raining and continued into the evening so my washing stayed out there. Hoping for better today.
I am meeting my Mum later so will get some bits in town then tomorrow I need to go to the specialist footwear shop and get some shoes that will fit my orthotics. Sunday I must get back to my craft table and get creating!
Sending love n hugs to you all xxx

With all of the beautiful blues you are using lately I hope that it isn't a sign of your mood! We don't want our favorite designer to be feeling blue even though your cards are absolutely GORGEOUS!! Sunny yellows and fiery oranges go with your wonderful personality! TFS!

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Good afternoon lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

What a wonderful Wedgewoodesque creation, just love the milk and duck egg blue together because it's so fresh and elegant. The design concept is superb, I am so glad that I have finally adopted the Stitched Lattice Frame, it's to die for and so, so versatile. I adore a framed card to and you do them so well, I really appreciate that touch of bling in the background it really makes the lattice work sing to me. The tri-Gemini dies are a fantastic concept and you show it's versatility beautifully, I don't have the Pictor but wonder if my Centaurus die would work equally well? I will definitely be borrowing this idea for future use , so many thanks for the excellent ideas:-)
Well, I've missed some gorgeous cards the past couple of days but I've been so busy that I only had an opportunity to pop by in passing:-( It's a much quieter day today, cloudy and overcast threatening rain again.....we haven't been blessed with the sunshine really which is a source of great despair for me, though I do appreciate that many are still struggling with the heat and would rather see the back of it, please send it my way:-)
Brodie has been hard at work recently "paying" for his keep by bringing little presents home....we returned from shopping yesterday to find a sadly deceased sparrow lying in the hallway, his forth in the past ten days.....he's getting too efficient at it and it breaks my heart, thankfully he normally brings them home alive and we can save them but it's so distressing and he thinks that he is such a clever boy:-( Nature can be so cruel at times....
Darcey is still causing havoc with my sleeping patterns, managed to get her in last night after her teasing for a good half hour beforehand but she's finding it hard to settle in the heat at night. So glad that you are getting a bit of shut eye now Elaine, hopefully your neighbour has listened to your justifiable complaint and took action. Hope Andrew and Darren have a fun night out at the cinema with his wife:-)
Tina, I'm sorry Mick is struggling again, I do hope that it doesn't lead to another stay in hospital especially since he had been doing so well. Maybe the weather will break and his appetite will return....
P, sorry to disappoint but I had a good reason for my absence, promise:-) I'm a little concerned about your blood lust and keenness to see Yvonne and I at loggerheads though, surely we should be promoting peace and harmony on the blog?:-)
Lorraine, enjoy your shopping trips, hope you find something fabulous!
Yvonne, have you just about recovered from your birthday exertions yesterday? I'm sure that I will hear all about it at great length later.....I'm having a quiet afternoon in preparation for the exertion of talking to you for any length of time, it requires strength, stamina and tolerance that I fortunately possess in abundance:-) Hope the boys had a conscience and put their petty squabbles behind them for your big dayxxx

Sorry I've missed so much, the week has flown by and I've missed you all, I had a few days of ups and downs so I've not been about. We had a lovely afternoon Saturday, I'm so chuffed with sewing machine. She looks darn good for 58 years old! There's only a little that she needs in the way of completing her set of feet and she needs the right tool box cover so I shall be scanning auctions etc she needs a very good clean and oiling but I won't run her til the motor had been checked and greased. We went to a lovely craft shop and I got a stamp, some card and some ink to do brothers save the date cards. We had a coffee and cake too. On Monday I had some lovely news that one of my friends made the Paralympic boccia team and I got in touch with an old friend on Facebook, we chatted loads and are staying in touch. Billy and I have both suffered in the heat. Mr went to interview but although they though he was great they were very honest that pay wasn't great as it was more a job for a semi retired person. He is looking again and is prepared to do most things, maybe even go back 'on site'. I got really overheated on Tuesday and ended up with cold wet towels and ice packs to cool me off. Have things sorted with social services so can go ahead and arrange a short daily visit and a longer visit once a week. Very, very thankful for this. Migraines were on off all week until yesterday night when it got so bad I couldn't bear any light and every time I sat up my eyes would clamp shut and I felt dizzy. Mr called 111 and they told me to get to the hospital. Now, a trip to see an emergency doctor is never pleasant but oh my, if they all looked like him I would never mind it! Very polite and very very good looking! He dimmed all the lights so he could examine my eyes without it being too uncomfortable and he told me and Mr which things to look out for that'd mean bringing me back. Feel a bit rotten today, thankful for zoom as eyes are blurry and dark glasses so I can read the screen :-) laying down is my preferred position as feel a bit ill. Billy being very protective of his mum since last night bless him. So glad it's cooler than it was as wouldn't fancy that heat with how I'm feeling at the minute! What a week ay?! Off for some toast to settle my tummy and some pain relief then a sleep to see if it'll all go away.

Plan is to be back soon able to read back your comments so in the meantime I'll send hugs and good wishes to everyone. Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you all soon,

T x

Norah McPhee said...

Good evening Sue and the Wilsonettes,
This first picture did nothing for me but the other pictures showing a winter white colour just looks so lovely against the duck egg blue. I really love how your card is made and i have a start in that i have the Pictor Tri-Gemini dies so i can do that bit, i have ordinary rectangles that i make the frames with so that sorts out that bit and i have another brand of lattice that i could use for the middle. See make do and mend you can get there sort of just the same,lol. Thank you Sue for the inspiration that you give each day although some days i will admit to being a bit taxing try to come up with alternatives to your design dies to try and come with some that looks in the same area but in the same country would do me fine, i don't want to be greedy.
Wheely,sorry you have been through the mill again this week and i hope that once you have a little sleep the headaches will have done a vanishing act on you. Isn't it funny how our 4 legged babies always know when we are not well? I'm sorry that the job was no use for Mr W as it can be so downing when you try for job after job and nothing comes your way, i hope that someone can see that spark of want to in him and offer him something soon. sending hugs down to you , Mr.W and Billy of course.
Oh Elaine i have my fingers crossed that Andrew keeps up with the progress he is making at the moment, but i really wish his treatment would start because at least he would know that it wasn't advancing and was getting sent into retreat. It seems so long away before he gets seen again and gets started on it but i will still send hugs your and his way that he keeps on going forward even in little steps.
Hugs to all that need, want or could do with some,
love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Hi Sue
Lovely card, I have some small layering dies and have been experimenting making frames. I have cut out some poppies and put them on a card today so had a bit of 'me' time
Turns out Mick's catheter was blocked so he had a new one fitted his tummy ache has eased off and he's drinking a lot more been drinking some of his high energy drinks but still making him feel sick but we have not had the rain they said would cool things down did start spitting but didn't last, he is not as restless so hoping tomorrow is a better day
Thank you all for your kind words, wishes and hugs I appreciate everyone of you
Happy crafting
Love and hugs to you all
Love Tina xxxx

Evening Sue. Gorgeous card. Just love your frames which, as I don't have these dies I am unable to copy. I tend to make smaller cards and they are quite big for that but I can still enjoy your beautiful cards. Love the colours too. X

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Today's card is beautiful !!! I love your beautiful Stitched Frame dies, they are a fantastic, classic design that I think will match brilliantly with any of your other dies. Real all rounder dies, these are definately on my wish list as an "essential" buy !!! The Gemini dies you have used are lovely with not one, but two fab designs in the set. I really do love these Belgian tag dies as I think they are very detailed, pretty dies. Both tags in the set are equally beautiful. A fab colour combo of duck egg blue and milk. These colours go great together. Thankyou for sharing your beautiful card. Sending lots of love to you Sue from Tres x x x
