Florette Frame

Hello bloggers!  This is going to be the last video card for 2013.  We will start them back up for you after the new year.  Today's video  showcases a technique for changing the shape of the die used.  I hope you enjoy it!

Morning Sue.
Thank you a very elegant card.
Sue you forgot your trade mark,
No beads on the sentiment.LOL.
Take care have lots of fun Kitty

Mrs B said...

Hi again Sue. Ok, have watched the video now. How clever, so obvious when you see it! Thank you.I am going to be looking at my dies in a different way now! On? thing I keep meaning to say is that you use glue dots alot, and peel them off easily, I have several sheets of one make that I won but I cannot get them off properly no matter what I do! Any tips or hints Sue or fellow Wilsonettes? Or do I give up, throw them away (don't like waste though, unless really necessary) and buy like Sue's. Take care.

BridgetCG said...

Hi Sue, lovely and elegant, great use of the dies. great video showing step by step. Bx

carol edwards said...

Hi Sue beautiful card Sue and so elegant, going to watch video for new ideas. Thanks for bringing videos to us they really help. Mrs B I don't use many glue dots, but think some are better than others. I usually just press the dot on with backing still in place, then pull backing away. Not sure if this helps.x

Jackie T said...

Morning Mrs W. Morning Mrs Wilsonettes. What a dreadful night weather wise, hope your homes etc have stood up to it. Cam from Richmond - weather report for your forthcoming fairy dust journey - AWFUL with strong possibility of blizzard snow storms ! Sorry to bring you misery !
I keep re-visiting yesterday's card, it was so beautiful, but back to today's card, Im going to watch the tutorial in a mo, I always love to watch the video's, the way you explain what you are doing, the tips to make things easier, and what to do if something is particularly tricky, so thank you for all the tutorials this year and cant wait for the start up again next year.
I love black and white cards, they look so strong yet feminine when you need them to be.
Maybe next year I can start to slowely build up my SB/JR/CE etc goodies so I can actually re-create one of your W.O.W's (Wonder of Wilson)'s
well its voucher day, so I can start 'collecting' after Ive received my voucher gifts for Christmas : )

Have a great day everyone.
Lots of love.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Thank you for letting me join you this morning in your beautiful craft room.
Today's gift is just beautiful - the colour scheme - such a classical one and changing the look of the dies - which I wouldn't have though of in a million years is fantastic. Shall be having a different look at my dies in future to see what I can do.
It's a crafting day for me today - Yeh- so will be one happy bunny.

Unknown said...

You are inspirational I have both of the dies unused and would not have thought of using the floret die this way. Seeing this has inspired and my New Years craft resolution will be to be braver and just go with any inspiration and experiment

Glenharon said...

Good morning Sue,
What a beautiful card and the fact that it is milk and black it is not as stark as the white. I need to build up next year to the goodies that you have used, although i do have the flower dies AND stamps(its the only actually set i have). I love the crocheted black lace, but i don't think the re-dying like you do the seam binding would work somehow, so will have to wait to get that as well.
Mrs D:- i have the same trouble when trying to get the glue dot off their carrier sheet, so i put the flower or ribbon on top off it and really give it welly with the burnishing it on so that it stays put. You could also put the glue dot attached to the carrier sheet straight to the card and again give it some welly with burnishing it onto the card (bone folder works great if not able with the welly).
Have a great day everyone and see you all tomorrow hopefully,
Love and crafty hugs
P.S Sorry Sue to hijack your blog each day, but it's nice that we can get hints and tips. Your blog is our crafty clubhouse. thank you.

Lacelady said...

Beautiful card again Sue. This time I managed to watch the video first. Great idea to cut down that background to fit the labels die. I've loved all the videos you have done, it's sooooo nice not to have a presenter butting in every 30 seconds. (if not more), and great you have teamed up so that we can go buy what we need - what you might call a complete package!

Hi Sue,
What a Truly Awesome Card in Milk and Black, when you look at the close up still shots you can see the Colour in the Background of your Basket weave Embossing Folder,
I'm so in love with the Black Crouche Ribbon it adds such Elegance to the Card, I really love the fabulous technique using your Label 28 to Create a frame around the Vintage Floret Frame to create a completely different look, I also like how you cut out your floret flowers then inked them without using your Block so much easier than trying to get it correct on a block, I Love the Sentiment from JustRite well Sue another Fabulous Video and I am so looking forward to the new ones in the New Year love and hugs from Sam x take care all!

Hi Sue,
Fab combination of black and white always looks elegant. I use it as a fall back colour combination if I'm in a hurry or stuck for colour. Thank you so much for taking the time to do the videos they are an invaluable source of inspiration and techniques. You really are the best.

Hi Sue,
What a lovely card - and one I shall sit down and shamelessly copy (well, sort of) this weekend - it'll be a change from Christmas cards.

Can't wait to see what you've got for us in 2014.
Thanks for sharing this gorgeous card.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW !! Todays card is just amazing !! Your video is fantastic too !! Your idea to make the floret frame into a label shape is pure GENIOUS !! I love your milk and black colour scheme and I love the dies and stamps. The flowers are very pretty and that lace is beautiful !! More dies and stamps to add to my wish list !!
I am disapointed that this is your last video until after Christmas. I have watched every single one so far and I am totally hooked on them. I will be having withdrawal symptoms over Christmas !! I cannot wait for them to start up again.
Lots of Crafty Christmas wishes to every one love Tres x x x

Hi Sue,
Another rather miserable day here so always cheering to see your card. Card doesn't seem fitting somehow - more like a mini work of art!

Thanks for all you have done this year. Trust you and your family will have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year. Just in case I get side- tracked from now until Christmas.

Also Happy Christmas to everyone on the Blog. Trust you all remain well and safe over the Christmas season.

Hello Sue, Ooooh I'm late today, out delivering presents and cards all day, phew!!!! A very sophisticated card today, love the black and cream, got some crochet ribbon from Julia, it is sooo gorgeous. What a fantastic way to use the frame die, a true Sue touch of genius. Thank you for the fantastic video and for the hard work and inspiration you have put into your blog this year, looking forward to the 2014 treats.
Congatulations to the winners.

Hi Sue, I'm extra late - again. Good reason, though!
Really want to say thank you for all the great videos you post for us - it really has been a total delight on each occasion and full of inspiration (not to mention NO PRESENTERS waffling on).
Today's card, as ever, full of ideas and do love the central feature cut to fit the label frame and then backed - not to mention the letterpress technique which must really try. Can't imagine a day now without a 'Sue' fix!!

magpie said...

First of all I'd like to say Sue what a stunningly pretty card for the Wednesday giveaway yesterday. They were lovely colours that you used. Good luck everybody! Todays card, is gorgeous. As always loved the video. It's so theraputic watching you create a masterpiece bit by bit. Clever thinking of cutting around the background die to fit inside a labels die. Will have to do the inking of the embossing folder. Not got around to doing that yet. Thank you sooo much Sue for all the inspiration, the ideas, the videos, your time and your wonderful games to win prizes and a Sue Wilson original! Plus you are there at the end of our questioning emails!! Wishing you a very "Happy Holiday" Sue and a fantastic and wonderful New Year! Have a very Merry Christmas and A Happy New 2014 everybody! xx Love Karen xx
