Summer Rose Card

Hi bloggers!  I am showing the letterpressing technique in today's video.  The Summer Rose Frame is absolutely perfect for this technique and it is not difficult to do either.

 The finished dimensions are 7" x  9" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue,

I know this is the Summer Rose Frame but it feels like Springtime with the lovely lavender and green colors. Lovely design and the little bit of sparkle just makes it perfect.

Have a wonderful day.

Morning Sue, a really lovely card and great video. I did not know that this letterpress technique would work so well with dies, another one to try. Have a great day everyone. Bx

Donita Naylor said...

So this is the letterpress technique! I wondered how you got the color down deep into the paper and left the veins and lines white. Thanks for showing us. Yes, it's lovely.

Happy Tuesday.

Best to all,

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, such a beautiful card today, love the lavender and green colours you have chosen. Will watch the video in a minute whilst I have my breakfast. Hope all is well with you, I tried to get to Ally Pally on Saturday but our satnav took us all wrong, the upshot was that after 3.5 hours we decided to turn around and go home, it is about 50 miles from where we live yet we drove around for over 200, you can imagine we were both exhausted and I never got to see you, I was gutted but there wasn't anything I could do. We did see a lot of London though, but everywhere now is 20 miles per hour.

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

Jacqui oakes-alcock said...

Lovely card Sue.
Well saw the surgeon yesterday had a ct scan, my shoulder is in six pieces. They are all in place so have to see how they begin healing for another two weeks to see if I need surgery.
Thanks for all the warm thoughts.

What a lovely delicate, spring like card. Those colours work so well & this die really lends itself to the letterpress technique. Thank you Sue for showing us the video, must go & see which of my dies will work like this. Only done this with embossing folders before.

Hi Sue,

The perfect card to showcase the letterpress technique and I see from her comment that Donita has already watched it!...lol...love that new embossing folder too...

Jacqui - SIX pieces!!...unbelievable - you really did some damage there...hopefully they will all knit back together by themselves...

Good Morning Sue. I have just watched your video....This is beautiful and Thankyou for showing us what letter pressing is. I have heard of this but never seen it done before.

Lovely delicate card. I really must have another go at using the letter pressing technique, its effects can be very pretty as you have shown.

Hope you had one day of rest at least after the Ally Pally.

Good morning Sue Oh what a beautiful card thank you for the video you make everything look so easy I have the rose frame so will have a go at this
June what a shame you didn't make it your Ally Pally it must have been really frustrating sometimes sat bags can drive you mad they do want to take you on ridiculous routes on times!
Stephanie I hope you are OK we haven't seen you comment recently
Sending good wishes to all

Muriel Kelly said...

Hello Sue and all
Prettycard today, lovely colours and so feminine.
Video is great, all so easy after watching your demo, I must apologise for not realising the letterpress technique a few days ago was with firs not embossing folder and leading Donita astray.
June, that must have been so disappointing not making it to Ally Pally.
Jacqui, I hope you heal well and don’t need surgery - you did a thorough job !

Pauline Austen said...

Hi Sue, what a pretty card. Another lovely embossing folder too. I've never had a go at letter pressing but after watching your video I will most definitely be having a go.
Sorry to hear about your problem when trying to get to A P June. I would have been gutted too.
Hugs to everyone. XX Pauline

CraftyJo said...

How lovely :)

Pat L said...

Hi Sue
Thanks for the great video and the card is very pretty
June what a shame you didn't get to AP after driving all that way
Steph hope you're ok, you've been missing for almost a week now

Love and hugs to everyone

karenlotty said...

Terrific card Sue
Sorry to read JUNE didn’t make it to AP We live fairly close by and sat nav never seems to take us on the same route twice I would suggest that sometimes it’s easier to get the train to AP It’s a fairly easy walk and they run shuttle buses to the venue immediately outside the station

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue

Lovely card, especially like the letter pressing and the colours you’ve chosen. They work really well together.

Jacqie, such a bad break. Hope it all begins to heal properly in place so you don’t need surgery. X

Pam, such a shame about you missing Ally Pally. Sat Navs not always useful are they? We ‘wasted’ over 2 hours recently trying to find somewhere in Leeds. Like you we gave up in the end. Hope you can make it in September.x

Love Helen xxx

Sue MacFall said...

I have got these dies and embossing folder so must have a go at this pretty card .

Karen M said...

Pawprintx4 said...

Love this card. I will watch the video a bit later. I love your videos and have not done a letterpress in a while. Hope Ally Pally was a success and fun.
June, so sorry that your GPS went bonkers on you. I want to go to Ally Pally so badly but will have to get to England first (ha). One of my friends and I are actually talking about it for next spring.I may have to find a hotel very close then.
Jacqui, 6 pieces. Ouch! Seems like surgery would be required but shoulders are tricky. I do hope you mend quickly.
Hope everyone has a good Tuesday,
Stephanie K

Crewe Trish said...

Hello Sue
Great video Sue this die is growing on me.
Jacqui no wonder you have been in so much pain.I also noticed that Stephanie has been absent for a few days which is unlike her.Yvonne don't want to make you feel bad but I have already made 8 Christmas cards I fell in love with Sue's Christmas parcel stamp so ordered it after Christmas while it was on special offer and now can't stop colouring.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a lovely card using two of my favourite colours. Thank you for the detailed video, I am sure it has helped those who were unsure of the letterpress technique. Love the embossing folder also.

I too am concerned about Steph, her last comment on Thursday was very brief. I do hope that she is ok.


Fikreta said...

so nice card

Maria Alder said...

Hi Sue and everyone,
Gorgeous card and thank you for the tutorial. It was nice to
see you Sunday and I was pretty stumped you remembered my name.
It was really nice also to see so many friends.

June, hope you find your way there in Sept.
Jacqui, hopefully you won't need any op. take care.
Do anyone know anything about Pam ? do miss her.
Hope you all had a good day. Warm hugs to all and extras for
anyone who need some.

Princess Pixie! said...

Evening Sue and all
I completely fell in love with this when you were on HOCHANDA. It is such a pretty card and I remember thinking that the technique was something I could probably manage x
The boys bought me the One Day Special which included this die so I have no excuse for not making this very card!
Well my intentions are good x
June - how frustrating. Can I just check - has your Sat Nav a man or a woman's voice? Mine is all woman and got to say is very reliable. Fingers crossed for September - the train is very easy. I used to drive but got the train last September - so simple x
Jacqui - 6???!!! Oooohhh!!! No wonder it hurt x
Crewe Trish - thanks for the salt rubbing. Lol. Well done you - I am impressed x
OK people wherever you are and whatever you are doing I am sending lots of love - specially to missing friends x
Crafty hugs

CCM said...

Hi Sue,

Elegant and feminine card. Love the soft colors and the design. Even you explained everything about letterpress technique in this great video I am not sure if I really understood (I have same question like Donita). I don't have the Summer Rose Frame or a similar die to try.This technique is a must try.

Hugs from Toronto to you all and special hugs to all missing friends.
Still a newbie to Craft / not longer the newest, or the only across the pond Wilsonette

Good morning all.
As usual your post didn't arrive in my in-box until halfway through the morning AFTER it was posted. Such a beautiful card and your tutorial was lovely to watch on my PC. I too (like Carmen-Dorothy) have quite 'Got it' but will watch the video again (and again and again until I do get it) My fault Sue not yours!
Thank you for all you give to us, you are greatly appreciated.

Hi Sue,

Wow, I love this. I had heard of the letterpress technique but never knew how to go about it, until now, so thank you Sue. Loved the video as always.

I bought this die and it just came this morning, so now I am off to play.

Thanks Sue for all your inspiration.
