Double Striplet Sunday

Good Sunday morning all!  I am back to the striplets for today's double day, specifically the Tiled Squares Petite Striplet.  In the first card, I cut the top and bottom edges of a piece of coconut white card with the decorative inner die from the set.  I extended the pattern two extra sections by moving the die along, which allowed me to create a rectangular background .  I backed the piece with a black card.  Next I cut two more of the striplets out of black card using both pieces of the die.  I glued them to the sides of the background piece which created a rectangular frame for my focal element.  I used the Hugs stamp to die for called Hugs and Flowers and stamped it in black on white card.  I coloured in the flowers with a red distress marker and cut it out with the matching Hugs die.  I used the rectangle dies in the set to cut a backing and make a thin black frame.  I cut the Hugs once more out of black to create a shadow and mounted the stamped hugs slightly offset on to it.  I added mounting foam and attached it in the centre of the striplet frame.  I cut several Exquisite Poppies out of red card that was covered with sticky adhesive sheets and coated them with Lava Red polished silk glitter.  I attached the flowers in opposite corners around the focal image.  I completed the card with white, red and black mats.  The finished size is 7" x  9" in size.  Scroll down for card number two.






The second card uses the striplet background for the basis for my fire and ice technique.  I started by cutting the decorative piece of the Tiled Squares Striplet into a piece of black card six times.  I applied a piece of sticky adhesive sheet to the front of the card, then turned it over and gilded the back with Summer Meadow gilding flakes.  I trimmed the edges of the card,then peeled the front backing piece off and coated the card with Iced Snow.  I stamped my sentiment and then cut a multi layered frame using the Double pierced oval Noble die set.  I added mounting foam to the back and then seated it over my stamped sentiment.  I added this piece to the centre of the card.  I decided to keep it clean and simple without any flowers so it is more of a unisex sort of card, but you could easily doll it up with some floral elements.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  the finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  8 1/2" in size.

The winners of this week's weekly Comment Game are:

Gorgeous cards Sue, each beautiful, love No 2 background.
Congratulations to comment game winners.
Tina an Mick, so sorry that this has still not been sorted for Mick, you must be exhausted, please take care.
Elaine and Andrew, hope all is well after the treatment.
Tina and Peter, have a lovely day at the Christening,
June, hope things have settled down for you, I was in hospital in a 6 bed room where they kept the tvs on all night and couldn't sleep, they had to move me to a single room as I had pneumonia. You need your rest to recuperate.
Thank you all for your kind comments for Gary, he is overwhelmed at the support and feedback, I will let you know if we get the song online.
Hugs to Trace, Laine, Lorraine, Lynda and all who are not well, and everyone else.

Love that glitter!

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Sunday Smiles to you Sue. This is hard. The first sample made me say "WOW" it looks very art deco, love the colour scheme, love the 3D effect, love the fact it could be given to a in awkward male. The 2nd sample, well we all know how amazing the guilding flakes and iced snow are separately but when used together they give the most remarkable effect with an explosion of sparkle so I bet when it hits the light it's just gorgeous, so there is no favourite for me they are both amazing in their own way.
Pam - I can imagin there wasn't a dry eye when the song was aired. Words from the heart are what mean the most especially when the 'song writer' has/is living through it. It would be wonderful if it could be recorded for You Tube for all to hear, and I hope from the bottom of my heart it can raise thousands for charity sometime soon.
Sending best wishes to you June hope the knee is less painful, it will be tomorrow, each day will bring fewer pain meds.
Well done to the winners today enjoy your gift.
The decision I have today is should I do 'top up' cards for market next week or continue my festive order (in the middle of cutting loads and loads of the holly leaves from your festive release a few years ago to make a holly wreath card you made yonks ago, it has a red and white dotty background, with white holly wreath and red bow placed at an angle) but I'm using a different colour scheme so it's not exactly the same, but it's time consuming and trying to get the holly leaves how I want them to check if it will be ok before I stick them down is sooo frustrating cuz obviously you move one and another 6 move out of place lol or... should I do one card for market and alternate with the order ? I've no new baby boy cards in stock so what a fab reason for playing with my Onesie and Shadow box and ikkle animals and stork, after all, its ONLY October and market is a week away !!!!! No competition really, New Arrivals it IS lol.
Have a lovely Sunday Sue whatever your plans, and here is a hug to see you through the day xxx

Love it when you do two different takes on a die, Sue, and these striplets make for great backgrounds. Think number one edges in for me, probably because of the poppies!
Hope you get some sleep and are home soon, June.
Well done to the three comment winners.
Hugs for those who need them, especially missing friends.

Hi Sue and crafters all,
Happy Sunday!!!!
Two lovely cards - what a difference a die makes. Number 1 is my favourite as I love black and white!! The fire and ice looks good to. Love the poppies, I seem to you the a lot.
Congratulations to this weeks winners!!!!
Peter continues to improve, his appetite is slowly coming back. Just the problem with getting a lot of fluid down him, he gets fed up with water and lemon squash as others are "to sweet" for him which is odd as he has a sweet tooth.
I am off to my christening later this morning.
Thanks Pam for your ki

Morning sue and crafty crew.

Fabulous cards. The first one looks very retro with the colour combo love the pop of red.
Second I really love too but I think the first one pips it for me xxx

Yesterday graeme took me to craftworld and o went to town as o thought I deserved a well earned treat!! So I bought a platinum machine, the stuffed animals, the snowman scene, plenty card and glitter and a variety of other things!
Was surprised graeme kept his mouth shut!! Lol
Anyways I'd bought the sizzix big shot plus several months ago I've used it twice and it beveled my noble dies wasn't happy at all so it's now in a corner. Will no doubt go back to it eventually so will see how the platinum fairs. I do love my calibur tho.
I sold my smaller sizzix machine and a multitude of stuff with it to my cousin for her daughter who loves making things so I hope she has as much pleasure as I do.

Forgot to congratulate wednesdays winner hope u enjoy ur card x
And well done to today's winners too x

Love to all

Hello Sue,
I , too, love it when you use the same Die in different ways! I think the first card is very striking but my favourite is the second one.
I love the twinkle and sparkle!
June - good to hear you are up and walking! Well done you! You will soon be home I'm sure.
Tracy - you have had a very successful spend! Well done you! Well done Graeme too for showing such restraint! Ha ha!
Enjoy your Platinum - I love mine but still occasionally use my Calibur!
Pat L - how lovely for Sarah to meet and have a photograph taken with her heroine! I'm sure the photograph is gorgeous! Thanks for telling us!
Elaine - Andrew is pretty special too! To say he felt yuk and then that he could handle it - says a lot about him! Thinking of you .
Thinking of all those who are suffering or watching a loved one go through tough times. It's not easy!
Congratulations to all the winners today and I think I forgot to congratulate yesterday's winner too!

Maria Alder said...

Hi Sue and everyone.
Two lovely cards made out of the same die .I like it too when you
show two or three with the same die but in colours that make them
look so different on the same page so you really see the impact.

Congrats to Sandra Kent yesterday and to today's comment winners.
yay Val :-)

Pam- love to hear the Gary song and hope it will be available on line
soon for a worthy course. Hope you are doing alright.x
Tina and Peter, enjoy the Christening and hope the day been good. Maybe
try some black currant juice if he can have it and like it. Take care x
Tina and Mick- hope the outing was nice and it will be some more days
like it before the winter is here, take care x
Tracy- a quiet hubby when going to a craft shop ! He is something special
yours, keep hold of him :) Fingers crossed for you starting the IVF asap. x
June- bless you having such a disturbed sleep in hospital but like the
others say it is not a place for proper relaxing so hope you soon can go
home and physio not too painful for you, hugs x
Betty- hope your hand is alright, sound painful to have a bone removed.

Yvonne- hope you are doing alright, pace yourself when you can and the same

Two very different fabulous cards Sue. First one is ideal for males but my favourite is the second fire and ice sparkly card.
Thank you for your kind thoughts Maria. My hand has been very painful but today is slightly less so I think. Have a huge bandage and cast on it which makes it difficult to get clothes with sleeves on but hope when stitches come out in about 10 days and they just put another cast on that I'll be Able to do a bit more with my hand!
Pam look forward to hearing more about a possible download of your friends song for charity.
Congratulations to today's winners. X
