'morning Sue, Thanks as always for a wonderful video and lovely design. I see you've been treating yourself to a new white cutting mat....no surprise that a new one was needed with the hundreds or thousands of cards you make. Mabex

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
What a beautiful beautiful gift today. So rich and elegant.
Your colour scheme is not my usual set of colours but today's gift has changed my mind.
This is one which will definitely go into my 'must do' file and I think I know just the person who would love to receive it.
Busy day ahead - it's my crafty afternoon with my 'knit and natter' friends so have to gather all that's needed together and have to finish a 'welcome to your new home' card.
See you tomorrow.

Hi Sue, love the colours used . Vibrant and classy too. Lol lynne m x x x

Alison Couchman said...

Lovely card and great video tutorial as always.
I can see myself using this design often, maybe changing a few of the embellishments to give a slightly different feel each time. Suspect this is a favourite already.

Crisco said...

And another great tip learned! The embossed area under the sentiment is gorgeous, as is the whole card.

gwen70 said...

Very striking card Sue

Joan D said...

Certainly a bright and cheerful card. Will put this one on my ever growing list of designs to have a go at. Hoping to have a play with some of Sue's new dies today. Have a good one xxxx

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Sorry, but not my favourite! I think it must be the colours as I do like the individual aspects of the card. I think I will give it a go using different colours or even white on white to see what it is like then. Do love the rose though! Love to everyone, Alison xx

Glenharon said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
I cheated and found this gem yesterday on youtube and it is maybe the one to turn me from not liking darker cards into a lover, as i really found this striking Sue. The black embossing powder really does take the embossed part up a number of notches and the iced rose... it's so pretty. Yip a definite Wonder of Wilson.
To all going to SECC this Sunday i definitely will have a WOW badge on with it's customary bow and some bling of course so just look out for the dafty with a scooter and her badge and you'll just know its me. My hubby wonders just why i can't act my age and be sensible. This life is too short to act sensible all the time and you only get the one chance to life so enjoy what you can and keep the serious for the necessary. So come on who's going to join me in wearing our badge proudly? No point in wearing a C&C badge as they are allergic to coming north of the border.
Sam, i think that if someone who had been doing crafts for 15 years has asked you a relative newby in years i would take that as a complement and she must see your gift and rate it highly. I think we are all hard on ourselves and scared at times that it wont be up to what the person wants or is looking for, but they have asked you for a reason so allow yourself that wee bit pride in the work you are doing as someone else rates it highly.
I hope that Tres and Tandy, you are feeling a wee bit better today. It doesn't take that long to go down the hill but i know trying to get back up it to semi normality seems to take forever. Take it slow and do what we tell new mums to do... have a nap or a break as often as you do when you have a newborn. If folk can't accept you how you are when they come they are the losers. Your real friends and family should know how hard it is for you and be able to accept your bad days as well as your good.
Steph i enjoyed the Bunty i think well after when i should have. My "daddy" always got my Bunty for me every week and one week the lassie in the papershop says to him "John, your lassie must be getting big now. You've been buying that comic for years now, how old is she now". What did he turn around and reply, "oh she's 23 now". Now in my defense it was a scrimmage as to who got in first read it and since my mum had never had one when she was young, she pinched mine. Oh the happy days of the Four Mary's and Bunty's next outfit. And i think i possibly still have my collection in my cupboard down at mum's.
Awh well, now that reminiscing is out i think i shall go and leave you now and hope to see you all tomorrow. Back to reality and Jack as he has been busy outside, so take care everyone,
Sending love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

This card is beautiful - I love everything about it. Stunning.
Thank you for all your videos Sue. I have just discovered them on youtube so I have been watching them all non-stop. I thought they were only on Joanne Sheen's website twice a week - great discovery for me. Thank you for all your hard work in putting these together - they are an invaluable source of inspiration. I don't know anyone else who crafts, so your blog and these videos enable me to learn and develop. You are a STAR.
Bye for now.

Always been a bit partial to raspberry ripple, Sue, and this card is yummy too. Have some elements but can improvise and hopefully produce something similar. (Should never have sold that Secret Garden stamp!)
Late today - sad day here with lots of tears, My wonderful Molly cat aka My Girl, not even six years old, has had to be PTS with terminal kidney failure. We will miss her loving personality, always ready for a nose-to-nose love in. A special gorgeous cat.

Thanks for today's video.....an island of tranquility in an otherwise hectic day!! You're right that other colours would look fab too as I really like the format of this one. I'm at last getting to grips with 'pinning' but going through all the historic blog posts might take a little while! Vicki x

Brenda said...

Hello Sue,
What a beautiful card, it's not a colour I would have chosen but putting it with black-and-white it stands with the best, the sugared rose is exquisite and I love embossing black-on-black it really adds a touch of class.
Thank you Sue for showing us this brilliant video and all the wonderful techniques you've been included.
Take care, Love Brenda xxx

magpie said...

Hellooooooo to you Sue and all the Wilsonettes! Thank you for the great video Sue. Susan P and Rose, they are a great learning curb on how to do different techniques. Easier than written instructions sometimes! This card is gorgeous! Black embossing on black card is stunning. I love how the embossing powder "melts" to the shiny/raised effect. It is so theraputic watching "go".... like you say too Sue it gives the card a focal point. Love the colours. They are the colours of the card "Thinking of You" that I was lucky enough to win on a Wednesday card giveaway! It was even more beautiful in real life. It can be done so wishing all you ladies good luck for tomorrow! So sorry about your boiler Steph and that you have had to use Walter Hottle bottle. It's usually the case that outside is warmer than the inside! I hope it has been mended now. Oh my goodness! I remember Bunty....can't remember how far back that was. I had Mandy too and my sister had Twinkle, plus The Beano and The Dandy....I was a late fifties baby?! Great idea Moyra about the dazzler or the W.O.W badge! It would be lovely to meet up with our Sue's blog family in person. Norah, you are so right that we can be so hard on ourselves with our cards.....Tina sending you big big hugs and loving thoughts and to all those who need one today, and everyday. I have never known a blog family who feel so close to each other. I am soooo glad that I joined you Sue! It's a wonderful privilage to be a part of it. xx Love Karen xx

It doesn't help when my brain feels a few years younger than my body, and I just cant seem to 'get cracking' much before its almost time to think about our evening meal !! Think Im on a slow wind down which is NO use to me at all.
I do love your video days Sue, and for once I can say I have the border dies and the main focal stamp, but not the background stamp, but Im sure I can improvise when stamina allows.
Hope all you ladies are able to meet up at the show, it will be a very memorable time for you all and a great time to enjoy.

Thank you for another beautiful card Sue, your blog is my saviour, and.I'll never be able to express my appreciation enough.
Hugs to you all. Thinking of you Tina

Hi Sue
Hi Everyone,
I thought I had done this hours ago but heyho ! Here goes again! Internet access here is spasmodic so let's blame that. I have been unable to see the video because of the above but I can see the photos! I do like the raspberry and black combo and the rose, bow and pearls are lovely! Will watch the video all being well on my return home. However the card gets a thumbs up from me !
Steph, - Bunty - wow what a blast from the past! Something I looked forward to every week. Had forgotten about Walter but the four Marys were unforgetable. At that age my crafting expertise was embroidery and making paper clothes for dolls like the ones on Bunty - had a shoe box full of them!
Norah! I only wish I could see you wearing your Wow badge with bow and dazzler! Life is too short to be too serious! We need to have fun! Enjoy!
I'm rambling so I'd better stop!
Love to all, Myra

Great colour combo today Sue, so vibrant and lush. Love the tip for lining up the dies; this also gives the card some dimension.The sugared flowers are always so beautiful.

Beautiful, beautiful card in one of the favourites - raspberry!!! A nice simple card (still lots of steps) but elegant. Thank you.

What a fantastic dramatic colour
combination. Sadly I don't have
any raspberry card but I'm sure
it will work well with other
colours. If I can use up some
of the cardstock I've already
got then perhaps I can justify
treating myself! The sugared
rose is beautiful. Saving the
video for tomorrow.

Hi All
I like the colour combo, that raspberry card is so vibrant love it. The pearls look so pretty around the die. Lovely layout of the card so balanced and effective.

Hi sue. Love the raspberry on this card but you are right i can see it in a lot of other colours. I think the pearls just finish it off.
Best Wishes
