Cut Out and Layered Card

Hi bloggers!  I hope you enjoyed the blog launch for the past week or so!  Back to a video card today (and only one post, sorry!)  It's a little layering with the Anna die in today's video, enjoy!

The finished dimensions are 5 1/2" x  7 3.4" in size.  All for now Sue x

Hi Sue
Love those colours. They are so pretty. Anna is such a star. I do have a few of your Layering dies but Anna is not one of them. I do think she might need to come and join the other gang members I have!
My best friend is getting married next Saturday so Wedding Outfit Shopping is my task for the day. Wish me luck - I really do not like shopping unless it is craft related!
Happy Saturday everyone

WOW Sue how wonderful to see the final post striking up over 100 comments - Yeah Muriel back to normal, let's watch the comment numbers drop like a rock as it always does after the launch of a new collection ! How sad is that, if Sue had that many every day give or take a few numbers this blog would soon reach TOP SPOT again so if you can find the time to comment 4 times a day during the launch then why not once a day ?
Such a pretty sample this morning Sue will try to watch your tutorial when I can depending on countryside reception.
Enjoy your day whatever you're doing xxx said...

Morning Sue.
Thank you a very pretty card, and, a great tutorial.
Take care and have fun Kitty.

Marie P.from Longridge said...

Good morning Sue and all.
What a fantastic card to start the day and I have saved her in Birthdays and in Sue Wilson. I don't do Anniversary cards for many reasons but didn't want to lose easy access to Anna.
I love the beautiful colours you have chosen and the video is an unexpected bonus. You really do make everything look so easy and I think I may buy Anna when I'm taken on my next trip to my favourite craft store.
Hugs to all.

Good morning everyone. I love cards like this, my old Wellington die is one that comes out time and again for this sort of technique, but loving the Anna die too as the triple effect gives the idea a whole new look. It is going to seem odd today with only this one post there is nothing left to look forward too.

Hugs Helen xxx

Good Morning Sue and all
What a stunning card this morning and the colours are beautiful . More look on the card more details you spot from the background to sentiment. Thank you for creating the video which I know is a lot of hard work.

Very pretty card. I do like the design. I will have to catch up with the video next week after my Herefordshire sojourn so I don’t have to disturb my hosts.

Kiraneries said...

Hi Sue, a gorgeous card. Your tripled layered Anna die is beautiful and makes a lovely focal point. Thanks for your video.

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. Back to normal today! I do like this die and you have shown why on this card. It makes a really lovely centrepiece enhanced by the background made with the same die. This is such a great idea as I think it adds detail without overcrowding the whole esign.


Lesley Lawton said...

Great video Sue thank you it is good to see the process and maybe try with other dues too although I love Anna xxx

Morning Sue, arrived back from 4 soggy wet days in Northumberland. However, it didn't stop me from enjoying your wonderful dies and sample cards. What a spectacular launch this has been and so many dies which we can use all year round. Great value for money when like many others, we are just making for family and friends.
Anna looks beautiful especially in the background too.
I agree with Stephanie. It really doesn't take long to add a daily comment for Sue, as she works her socks off to inspire and teach us. Where would we be without her? Hugs xx Pauline from Teesside

ursula said...

I so enjoyed your launch and all the most beautiful samples you have shown us. Really excelled yourself with the beautiful dies again, we are spoilt for choice....beautiful video today showcasing the Anna die, so so pretty....thank you Sue....luv Ursula xx

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a beautiful card and all from one die set (excluding the sentiment) how clever is that! Anna is lovely as both a background and focal point and I love the colours. On the video you make it all look so easy, I know it would take me an awful lot longer even without the matting and layering :-)


Crafty Cruiser said...

I hadn’t thought of using the Anna die on an oblong card - mine so far have all been square. But I like this configuration very much and shall have a go. The card is absolutely gorgeous!

Hello Sue
What a gorgeous card and the colours are stunning!
I love how you have used the die in the background.
I really enjoyed seeing all the new dies and your lovely samples. So much preparation work must go in to new releases so I hope you are now finding time to relax a little! It is far too early for me,personally, to think about Christmas Cards but rest assured, when the time comes, there will be some dies from this release amongst them!!
Best Wishes

Pawprintx4 said...

Wonderful use of Anna who I am lucky to own so this card is a possible for me.
The Christmas release was better than ever and even though I have a lot of Christmas dies there are still a lot I want of this year's. I am going to start on Christmas cards early this year as I am getting a new puppy so card making might be a slow process.
Celebrate another winning launch,
Stephanie K

Betty McAlister said...

A gorgeous card Sue and I like these colours. Anna makes a lovely rectangle background. xx

CCM said...

Really enjoyed every post of the launch but sadly we have to go back to normal.On the bright side, for today's card you've used one of my favorite die sets-beautiful Anna. I'm delighted with your use of Anna, even I am not sure about the colours you have used for a anniversary card, but that is just personal taste. It is still a very beautiful design.

Hugs from Toronto
