Glittered Three Panel Card

Hi bloggers!  I designed the new Stained Glass die collection so there would be something to make quick, beautiful cards, but they are so much more too!  Here is just one way to create a lovely card with them.

The winner of this week's Wednesday Card Giveaway is:


Congratulations!  Please email me at to confirm your address and claim your card.

The finished dimensions are 5 3/4" x  7 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Pam said...

Gorgeous card Sue, very lovely. I wouldn't have thought of a tryptych.
Congratulations to Wed winner, pussycats.
Elaine, let's hope the CT scan gets John the right medication to help him. You are in the thick of all these setbacks in your family and you are not well yourself, please take care. Glad Andrew and Helen are having time at the caravan, hope weather is good for them.
Norah, thank you, you are a sweetheart. The twins are a but up and down in their moods, only to be expected but I think they are coping. They are both adamant that they are going to the funeral on 12th, I'm pleased they want to show their last respects for their grandad.
Pat, happy that Billy is improving, you will be relieved that he didn't do more serious damage.
Maureen, how are you doing, hope things are going well.
Carmen, tiring weekend for you, take care, hugs for the Kid.
Hugs to all, our missing friends and poorly friends especially. Big hugs for all the carers too, where would we be without you.

Really beautiful card,love the background.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, I am so pleased you put this video on here today, I have all 3 of the stained glass dies, so far have only made one that you cut out the different colours and paper pierce them into the relevant spaces, I was pleased with that. But then I tried the technique that julia did on hochanda with the glaze, using pixie, mica and stains, it turned out a complete mess, if you get a chance to do a video using the glaze I would love to see it.

Pam I reiterate all you have said

Congrats to pushy cat

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs June Smith xxxx

Kitty Davies said...

Morning Sue.

CraftySuetoo said...

Good morning Sue. I am doing my happy dance at today's card and video! I adore your stained glass collection and have been trying lots of different techniques with them. Had to have a quick look at your Christmas collection, and I'm sure you can guess which ones went straight to the top of the list!
Echoing Pam's comments again. Hugs to all, Sue xxx

Debra K. said...

Fabulous card today! The stained glass looks gorgeous in that colour combination. Definitely something to try. Debra x

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue, you've bought the sun with this gorgeous sample today, everyday I'm lost for words when I see your offering and today I'm flummoxed and can't find much other than WOW ! I've seen the most stunning cards on the SWCE fb group, littered, painted, pixied you name it, pretty, delicate and some that powerful they leave you looking like a cod fish with mouth gaping wide, but never one like this - yet, won't be long though I guess. Must watch your tutorial asap, I don't own these collections just yet as I know I won't do them justice like others have, maybe one day ☺
Well done Pussycat, your one lucky kitten.
Sending my love n hugs your way and hope you have a good day xx

Dear Sue and Faithful Followers,

What a surprise that you don't try to put the colors in certain spaces but more randomly. It still come out looking fantastic! And your tutorial was over in record time!

Thank you, Rosemary Powell and Izzy, for explaining the part that confused me about the faux MOP technique.

Congratulations to pussycats! Stephanie Cotterill, you're so funny, calling her one lucky kitten.

Joining the chorus echoing Pam.

Lovely triptych card, Sue, with pretty subtle glitters in the background. Great video, as ever, thank you.
P Austen - think most of us have bought Sue's dies from various sites and are on their mailing lists, so we get happy warnings! Search Icon, Joanna Sheen, Sunrise etc and you can see the new collection.
Well done to Pussycats on the card win.
Echoing Pam again.
Anyone in touch with Wheely? - no posts for ages.

Hi Sue, a gorgeous card starring the beautiful hummingbird. I love the way you created the random effect with the glitters - must try this but it would have to be with a background or a striplet as I don't have any of the stained glass dies just yet.

Pussycats Wendy - Congratulations on being this week's Wednesday Winner. Enjoy your beautiful card.

Wishing everyone a good week-end.


Pat L said...

Hi Sue
Thank you for a great video showcasing this stunning card, I tried using the polished silk glitters with the stained glass butterfly but it turned out all blobby nothing like your beautiful hummingbird

Hi Sue. WOW WOW WOW These Stained Glass dies are fantastic and your card is gorgeous but i bet these pictures dont do it justice, i bet its more beautiful when you have it in front of you. I have all 3 of these dies and i just love all the different techniques you can do with them. I am so pleased you have done some christmas Stained Glass dies and they are at the top of my list but thats only until i have seen what you have done with the rest of the collection. Congratulations to Pussycat on winning Wednesdays beautiful card.
Best Wishes.

Maureen Killen said...

Hello Sue,
Really effective and different way to use this die, I like it.
Pam have the ostriches surfaced yet? Hope you are well and everyone is bearing up, thinking and praying for you all.
Yvonne, nice to see you, especially when it's short and sweet!! Take care, I hope you feel much better soon.
Laine, how are you? We miss you.
Elaine, I'm so sorry to read about John, as though you don't have enough on your plate, and I hope the scan results show that things are not as bad as you might think. Given up on the wheelies for the moment, sitting on a little stool weeding is the new pastime (getting up off the stool requires an industrial crane)!! I hope Andrew and Helen enjoy their stay in the caravan. Love and Prayers.
Carmen, hope the Kid is doing well.
'P' in Wales and Pat L, I haven't seen Wheelybad for ages either.
Pat L, hope Mr L is improving.
Congratulations to Pussycats, enjoy!!!
Norah, sending love.
love to all

Hi Sue,

Lovely card. I really love all the stained glass dies. You can use different techniques to create beautiful cards. Thank you for the inspiration. I will view the video later.

Pussycat - Congratulations on winning the card!

The Kid is doing OK. It is all we know so far. We are trying not to bother him too much. Long and tiring day for me. Echoing Pam today.

Feeling shocked as terrorists have struck again. What is this world coming to. My heart is with the families and loved ones of the victims. Thoughts and prayers for all effected by these horrific attacks.

Stay safe and healthy,
