Just For You

Hello crafters!  Today's card uses one of the same techniques that I demonstrated on Hochanda this past weekend.  I started with a piece of Arctic Blue card on top and a piece of Bluebell card underneath it, lined up exactly.  I used the middle layering die of the Lilian die set and randomly cut it all over the card so it went through both sheets.  Next I went back and lined up the top layering die from the set directly over the cut outs on the top Arctic Blue card and cut them again.  I then glued the two pieces together as they lined up nicely from being cut this way.  I made a wide white frame using the Double Stitched Squares and attached it with mounting foam.  I cut a strip of vellum and attached it across the middle of the frame from side to side.  I used the Just For You die and shadowed it then glued it onto the vellum strip.  Using the Wildflower layering dies, I cut five flowers of assorted sizes, using the Bluebell as the top layer and the Arctic Blue as the middle layer.  I assembled them and added white base layers to all of them, then mounted them in opposite corners.  I cut a bunch of the leaves in white as accents and glued them around the flowers.  The card was completed with white, Arctic Blue and Bluebell mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4" x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all that enter this wonderful world of pretty inspiration. Is this one that you tempted us with at launch? I was catching up with your Sunday shows yesterday and was wowed with your triple layer collection, such a clever idea and I've never seen anything similar. Today's samples is really pretty, it looks complicated too, but watching your demonstrations makes it all make sense (if I make sense) ! Such a delicate soothing start to our day thank you xxx

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, stunning sample and I was so pleased you demonstrated this on Hochanda, it was amazing to watch and of course we all now know how to use the lovely 3d layering dies.

Thank you once again. xx

Morning Sue.
A very pretty card, thank you.
I am so glad you demonstrated the triple layer dies,otherwise I would have not had a clue.
Take care and have fun Kitty.

Janice K said...

Good morning Sue,
A beautiful card using a very clever set of dies. The versatility of the Triple Layer dies seems endless and, although I have to take my time working out which die is needed for each layer, the results are well worth it. Thank you for the wonderful inspiration.x

Muriel said...

Hello Sue and all
What a pretty card, love the colours but unfortunately, I have tried to watch you on the Hochanda catch up and only the first show with the mermaids is on there.
they too are gorgeous but I was really hoping to see the triples demonstrated, wonder why your other shows aren’t available?
Will watch you tube to see your lovely dies in use.

Hi Sue
I think this card is stunning x
These triple layer dies are pure genius and it was amazing being able to watch you working your magic with them on Saturday and Sunday. This card blew me away during the launch - those colours are beautiful. I must treat myself to some of the new card despite the fact that I have enough card stock to open my own shop!
Happy Wednesday everyone

Hello Sue,

The Triple Layer Dies are simply wonderful, what a clever concept that lends itself to so many endless possibilities. This one today is so crisp and bright in shades of blue and white. Watching your demonstrations over the weekend certainly made using them seem so simple.

Have a wonderful day.

Good morning Sue Wow Such a beautiful card I have the flower triple layer die but haven't used it yet After watching your Hochanda shows I will definitely be buying more of the triple layer dies they are superb I especially liked the technique you used with the gilding flakes & paste
Muriel if you click on the schedule instead of rewind & then on the day Sue did her shows you should be able to watch all the triple layer shows

Lisbeth said...

Morning Sue. I do like the triple layer flowers but I particularly love the way you have made the background using the same dies. Amazing!

ursula said...

Wow, quite complicated, had to read it over and over to try and see how it was made, but then I suppose not having the dies yet, I do not know how they work....but they should be on their way, then I can have a play.....A beautiful card, love the colour tones finished with pretty flowers...thank you Sue...luv Ursula xx

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a pretty card and I really like the way you have reversed the top colours on the flowers as it makes them stand out from the background.


Kiraneries said...

Hi Sue, a gorgeous card. I love the different layers on your background made with the same triple layers for the flowers.

Pauline Austen said...

Hi Sue
Beautiful card and your triple layer dies are so clever, it was great to watch you demonstrate how to use them and all the tips you gave too.
Love the new colours of card and I ordered the ocean card to go with my favourite aqua and the powder pink that replaces the blush card.

Good Evening all, love this card and the colour way it really shows of the dimension of the new dies wonderfully.


CraftyJo said...

Very nice - I guess I'd have to have this set of dies in front of me and follow along to understand just what you did but it's pretty even if I'm confused ;)

Hi Sue. WOW !!! What a gorgeous, gorgeous card today !!! I really love the shades of blue you have used. The Lillian die is beautiful. My favourite though are those gorgeous wild flower dies. They are absolutely fab and I just had to order them !!! This is such a pretty card Sue and I am going to try making a full card using the Wild flower dies. Thanks for your wonderful inspiration. Lots of love to you Sue from Tres X X X

Crewe Trish said...

Hello Sue
I love this and as Tres says you could make it using any of your flower dies. Yvonne who can resist Sue's new card colours I have now had to buy new drawers to separate coloured from patterned I have so much.
