Interwoven Border Card

Hi bloggers!  It's Tuesday video day!  I have a favourite to share with you today as I just loved the way this one came out!  I'm sure you will no doubt recognise my black, soft gold and milk card combo that I am so fond of too!  I hope you enjoy it and don't forget to become a subscriber to the Creative Expressions YouTube channel, just click the link on the right side of the blog and it will take you directly to the channel to sign up!  It is ever so easy!  It's a two -fer day as this card has been on the blog before so scroll down to see the second card after watching the video!

Buy from Joanna Sheen

Finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x 8 1/4" in size.

The second card uses the Taylored Expressions stamp set called Discover Your Wings.  I selected a piece of decorative paper from my stash and covered it with a sticky adhesive sheet.  I peeled the backing paper off and coated it with micro beads for texture.  I wrapped a piece of black seam binding around the bottom and taped the ends to the back, then matted the background with a thin black mat.  I stamped the wildflower silhouette in Black Archival ink and cut it out with a simple circle die.  I cut a larger circle to use as a mat.  I taped them together and cut the side off and mounted it against the edge of the background.  I stamped two sentiments and cut them into forked flags going in opposite directions and added them to the card with some black flatback pearls on the edges of both.  I tied a messy bow and topped it with a rose made from the same paper as the background.  I finished the card with a double pierced mat cut from matching peach card.  Finished dimensions are
7" x 8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue, as always beautiful cards again, you never disappoint me. I hope you are enjoying all of your sunshine, it is very foggy here today.
Cameeli, so happy you hae shoes and now are sorted for the big day, rest and relaxation now in order, a chilled Mamma-in-Law is the best to have.
Thank you so much everyone who send me hugs and good wishes yesterday, you will never know how much they came at a time when I really needed them, love you all.

Great cards Sue but you know me not into the black so for me the second is much nicer. Have great day everyone.

Two beautiful and very different cards today. I especially like the second one as I love to stamp. The sentiment is lovely and I love the colours. Thanks for sharing.

Vick said...

Good Morning my friend,

Well what can i say both cards are so up my street especially number one, obviously the colour combo but i love the vintage feel of the second card too as i love vintage victoriana, flowery English country cottage too, i love visiting you every morning and even though there isnt a back and forth dialogue like we would have on facebook (shame you never took that pastime up, i know.......you havent got time) i still know you read all our posts with enjoyment, bless you honey, you are such an inspiration to me Sue, hugs and have a lovely day with those you love, Hugs, V xx

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. You keep spoiling us with Two-fers. Definitely not complaining though:) Love both cards. Great video, (does any one else find the music so relaxing?) the first card, so elegant and a gorgeous colour combo, using your beautiful dies. Thanks for explaining why you designed the different sets of dies. Just one of the reasons why your dies are so popular. You really did think of everything when designing them: ) I also love the 2nd card. Such a pretty card, wonderful backing paper and the Discover Your Wings stamps are beautiful. Great design/lay out of this card too.
Pam, so glad you feel our love and comfort. My daily hug to you as always.
A hug to all in need.
Try and relax now Cameeli.
I hope you are managing to rest up a little Sue. Take care.

Morning Sue. Hope you are having a lovely time with your family and the sun is shining for you. Two beautiful cards love them both. The first one is very regal and elegant the second is a very pretty one the paper is lovely and i like the way you made the flower out of the same paper.
Best Wishes.

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
As usual I can't pick a favourite because I love them both. I am so glad that I went for Set A and set B of your California collection because it saves so much hand cutting of faux nesties and gives such a beautiful edge to your layer. I loved the video full of hints and tips thank you for that. I love the flowers made out of the backing paper in the second card so pretty.
Hugs x

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
You really are testing me with your colour schemes of black+ - as I've already said a lot of black is not my thing other than monochrome but I really do love the format of today's gift and will certainly be giving it a try out and I think my crafty friends on my craft afternoons would love to try this one too when it's my turn to demo.
It's a horribly dull and damp day here in Burgundy and oh have I a load of washing to dry - fingers crossed it may clear up so they can go outside.
Take care and see you tomorrow.

I do love stamping but I also love the design, the paper used and your gorgeous patterned rose, I saw you demo the first card ,great use of the dies but will watch the video with my morning cuppa.
Glad you feel a bit better today Pam,I think of you often and all our friends who are in any kind of pain.
Cameeli so happy you can relax now and look forward to the big day! Hugs to all xo

crafty lass said...

This is a beautiful card , I have just received my some of your dies for my birthday and cannot wait to get started . Been watching YouTube for inspiration thank you it really helps to see the dies and what can be done with them . X

ElizabethS said...

Hi Sue, two lovely cards today. I like the way you have done the bling on the forked flags on the second card, great idea.
Both sets of my (or should I say your) dies arrived yesterday, can't wait to play with them they look fab.

Sorry you were having a bad day yesterday Pam so a belated hug for you.Glad Cameeli that you have finally tracked down those elusive shoes.

PharmacyMichele said...

Two great cards-really like the 1st one. Also foggy here in Southport-hoping its lovely in Florida for you.


Rose in Chester said...

Good morning Sue,
It's the first one that sings to me - black and gold and those gorgeous dies - what is there not to love! I can see that I need the Italian border, too...........
The second one is a really pretty one, and reminds me to use my microbeads more. It just hasn't got the impact of the first but of course I would be very chuffed to be the recipient. It's got a charm of if own.
Hugs, Rose

Hi Sue
Both cards are stunning, will watch the video later when I will have not interruptions.
Norah I loved your saying of 'fandabbydozy' I loved the Crankies my late Dad came from Port Glasgow and would say that. Very dull grey morning so once I get the HW done I will get back to making a creative mess.
Love and HUGE hugs to all that are in need of one.
Happy crafting to everyone

Thank you for another great video, Sue, do like the opulence of this card - great interwoven borders and embellishment. Dies so well designed, not to have to hand cut larger nesties is such a bonus (or will be when I can manage to get these sets!)
Love the backing paper with micro beads in the second card, a pretty touch.
Have a great day Sue and Mom and all.

Even though I no longer mention names (except for 'special' events) doesn't mean that blog friends are forgotten - far from it. Wishes are always zinging across the ether - feel the power!!

Two beauties today

floss said...

Hi Sue,
Two lovely cards you have given us today. I got the dies for the first one from Joanna Sheen, when they first came out, so shall have a go at that one and I have a birthday card to make today so will do a version of the second one for that. I should be at a parchment class today but our tutor is in the USA at the moment, on a cruise to Disney Island, so the washing is out in the sunshine and it's a crafty day for me. Carry on enjoying your holiday with your Mom.x

Sandra said...

A cheery hello to all today, Sue thanks for the video tutorial, I love them as they are so very inspiring, the video's are great to work along to.
To very different cards today, both very pretty.
Are you still eating cake?
Cameeli, relax and make the mist of every precious moment with your family, making memories.
Hugs to all,
Sandra xxx

karenlotty said...

Will watch video after work Bith cards are lovely but the second one is my favourite - simple but very very effective and I have similar dies for this one! Woo hoo!

Maureen Killen said...

Good morning, Sue,

The cards, as usual, are gorgeous and a source of inspiration. My new dies have arrived, so guess what I'll be doing asap!

Hope you are enjoying yourself with your family x.

Ann said...

Hi Sue

A Two-fer WOW two gorgeous cards the first one is just gorgeous I love your chosen colours and the dies are beautiful.
The second one is a delight so pretty clean and crisp and a lovely meaningful sentiment.

Nadine in Spain said...

Two lovely cards, Sue! I appreciate the discussion of the dies in the video about your intentions when you designed them and how to achieve different results. I've never used much black in my cards, but when it's cut from such intricate dies as these, and combined with gold, it's very elegant indeed. I also like it stamped and embossing with black as the sheen from the embossed design adds more interest and a richness that is also quite beautiful. And it can be a perfect addition to men's cards, which can be more of a challenge! So, with the beautiful dies in your new collections, and some of the beautiful cards you've designed with them, I find that I've developed a new appreciation for black cardstock! Thanks for the inspiration!


Julsb said...

Good morning Sue gorgeous cards as usual. Not sure which is my favourite today, they are equally beautiful. JB xxxx

Hilary said...

Good morning Sue, and everyone.
Two stunning cards for us today Sue.

Two lovely cards again Sue but I thick the second one is beautiful and - hooray - I have got that Taylored Expression stamp set. I've not been commenting as I've been laid up with a bad case of bursitis for two weeks but think today's second offering might get me back into my craft room, even if uncomfortably, to have a try! Thank you and hope everyone has a good crafty day! xx

Hi Sue - love your first card and the way you have used your border dies is very clever. Your matting dies are brilliant as they leave such a delicate border. Great video explaining how to use them. Have a great day, best wishes

Two beautiful cards again today and I find it difficult to choose which one I like best. They are both very different and I like them both for the different elements and dies you have used.
Dull and dreary here in West Sussex at the moment but hoping it brightens up later.

Glenharon said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
Your first card is gorgeous Sue and i now finally have the borders to do this card with...hooray. The 2nd is a much plainer offering not quite me as (this is where the nutty part of Norah comes in)its not central. I am not good with anything that is not central as i have always got to straighten it up, even parking the card on the mono block has to be straight with them...see, nuts. The first card is so rich and opulent looking, so expensive i can't afford looking in its design and colour scheme.
June (Yorkielass) i think you were right the first time flower, i'm no good at bending either and the heavy in places, well that would be the body as a total.Hee hee hee.
Nanna Tina, I'm glad if i brought back happy memories for you with my little words yesterday. Until i saw them in Glasgow SECC 3 years ago with John Barrowman, i could never understand a grown woman dressing her whole life as a wee boy but, between them and John i was poorless in laughter, so have been back each year since.
Lynne m, you have 2 very smart pups there that don't want to get any wetter than is necessary, although i don't know what you were doing out in all that rain. Anyone else would have been up at the door to let them in, but maybe you were enjoying the rain too much(lol).
Lorraine flower, i would willing travel in your suitcase to go (pleading sad eyes), ok have fun and enjoy your break away.
Lindsay M, my eyes must be getting back because i miss the birth of the 2nd wee one. Are you expecting many more?
Well away i go to Falkirk as it is a beautiful day and my friend has to go to the vampire first, so first stop will be coffee shop. Beautiful day up here, but the clouds are tired, so they are resting on the top of my hills. Hope they wake up soon so that my lovely hills can get some of the glorious sunshine.
Have a great day everyone with gentle hugs and wee prayer for our fragile friends,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Hi Sue,
I agree, the second card is my favourite too, the wildflower silhouetted stamp is so pretty and a it's beautiful sentiment. The first card is so elegant, great for a golden wedding anniversary. I love using the soft gold card, understated and not too bling. The roses are lovely too, (must get some of that tulle).

Firstly the black and gold is beautiful, but the second card is really different and I like the effect with the background and micro beads - something just slightly different for you Sue. Thank you for the inspiration!
Will watch the video tonight - now back to work!!
Enjoy your day.

Hi Sue, love the colour combo on the first card but have to admit the second card is my favourite. Just reminds me of summer. Going to try to craft today as I need to get hubby's card done. Lol lynne m x x
Norah - I was trying to get poochies to go to wee yesterday before it rained too hard and silly me thought that if I went outside they
would follow me. All that happened is I got wet through.
Cameeli - glad the shoes are sorted.
Yorkielass & Lynda - Hi
Lindsay - love the name of the second foal. Hope your rib has improved.
To all on this blog lol and hugs x x x

Brawny x said...

Wow two fab cards. Can't believe how different they are. Think my fave is the flowered one. So pretty x

jane stillman said...

Margaret corgi owner said...

Good morning Sue
Two absolutely stunning cards today and the video, your generosity is really overwhelming thank you so much.
Your first card is so rich and elegant with an almost regal look while the second reminds me so much of a special aunts country cottage, she had some wall paper just like your background paper, I can almost smell her baking which was delicious especially her ginger biscuits, while looking at it! Thank you for the memory.
Cameeli so pleased you are organised, now have a well earned rest and take a chill pill so you will look your best for the big day.
Pam hang on in there you really are doing wonderful thinking of you each and every day. x
Warm wishes and hugs for those who need them.

Hi Sue,
Hi all crafting friends.
Gorgeous twofer today Sue! I just love the first card and what's more am going to copy it later on today!! I don't have the sentiment but can easily adapt that. I just love the border dies the way you have sort of interwoven them today is gorgeous! I like the second card too but just not as much as the first. Was nice to see a bit of pattern and the patterned rose too.
Trust today goes really well!
I am hoping that the weather has improved a little around Britain by now - its lovely and warm and sunny here!
Little story which I thought was so sweet yesterday when crafting with the children! A little 6 yr old had brought a furry bunny with her to show me - he is fine now she said but just after I got him his smile fell off. My Nanna sewed a new smile on! I thought that was lovely. Hope you don't mind me sharing!
Love and hugs to all who need one!

Jackie Meechan said...

Gorgeous and one so different from the other. Love them both.

Unknown said...

Hello Sue, I love both cards but the first one is my favourite, it is elegant and gorgeous. Hope you are feeling better today Pam.
The weather here in Mansfield is beautiful as I hope it is where ever you are.


Lynn (delphinoid) said...

Two Gorgeous Cards Sue!

The cards are different from each other, one with lots of elegance and the other one is very pretty. I love the background of the second one, I really must get myself some micro beads.

Happy Crafting!!! :) X X

Jill Liddle said...

Like both cards today but the first one is just a bit more me.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, two great cards today. Interweaving the borders is not something I would have thought of but must now try. I love the stamping and the rose on the second card but I'm not too sure about the micro-beaded background; maybe, probably, looks a whole lot better in real life.

Paper Junkie said...

I love them both Sue - but prefer the second one as the flower in the print is so cute! X

Janice Jerolymack said...

I have purchased your Rose Die; however, I am disappointed since I don't know how to use it. It does not come with directions and I have never seen you use the die to make them in a video. Essentially the die is useless to me and it was very expensive especially since I live in the United States and the shipping along was very costly.

Unknown said...

Both beautiful no favorite as both so different I have done the woven effect before using different border dies to great effect, anyway back to gardening now im winning the battle lol take care hugs to all x

Anonymous said...

Great cards, Sue. I love the interwoven effect & the roses are stunning.

Morning Sue. Afternoon Wilsonettes. It certainly isnt 'grim up North' as the saying goes, weather wise its sunny bright and warm (it has to be warm if I think it is with my weird health) ! Lol. Apart from that, even my skin hurts today, yep, not feeling up to par today, just one of lifes 'blips' tomorrow is another day : )
Pam - we all know there are no two days the same for you, and we are here for the okish days and the bad days you have. I admire your strength each day, and you are on my mind such a lot love.
Cam - All done. I agree with our other friends here, you have worked so hard to give your Son and future wife a beautiful wedding, time for a few Cam days before the 8th, and as.I said to Tina, hope all your hard work is appreciated by all that celebrate with you. (still intregued how you passed off Bahamas for Bognor) how on earth did you disguise that ? and it seems ages since you told us of your cunning and clever plan lol.

Sue, 2 beautiful gifts today, the first very glamerous and for a very special ocassion. I do love the colour scheme and cream/black and gold are a beautiful combination, black, no matter how much you use either enhances the main colours, or a small thin border makes other colours pop and sing, yep, I love using black.
The second 'happy' card looks happy, full of bright summer colour's a fun card not only to make I dare say, but to give and receive, and the final touch - your flower to match the background paper, superb, I also keep scraps of 'happy' paper to use with the few flower dies I have. I certainly WONT walk past this stamp should.I see it in my craft store, its one I really could do with to help me get more ' Happy' cards made for the big Summer market in May.
I shall watch your tutorial when I can concentrate on it without heavy eyes !
Hope you are managing some free Sue Time between preping future shows, making samples, and working on new stock ( there is no way I will have caught up with new set of dies before new set are released) especially as I need all the new dies and stamps to match, not forgetting all the new folders (fudge is first as it will be the back drop for our daughters wedding card)

Going to love and leave you now, but not before sharing hugs and cuddles to my lovely friends that need a Nothern/Brummie hug or cuddle today.

Love you. Thinking of Tina and family.

Fabulous cards.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW !! It's video day, my favourite !! Your card for today is just gorgeous Sue !! I love your black, milk, and soft gold colour combo. The Napa Valley die set and the border dies are both on my long wish list. I have to wait until pay day now !! This card is Sooo beautiful, Sue. Thanks for all your great hints and tips, and explaining about the design of your dies for matting and layering. It is all very helpful. I love, love love your Roses and will be making lots more of them.
I do really like the second card to but I do not have these stamps. The second card is lovely as it is something different from the norm, but I have to say the first card is my favourite. I love the patterned Rose you have made for it.
I hope you are having a lovely time with your family Sue. Enjoy your day love Tres x x x

Hi Janice Jerolymack, Sue Wilson has a large bar across the top of her blog page. It has various tutorials that you can read and try out for yourself. Sue has a tutorial called Paper rose tutorial, which was originally made for a Rose stamp. It works just the same for the Rose dies to. I followed it a while back when I bought my Rose dies and it works great. I never thought I could make Roses that look so lovely as Sue's but they do !! Just follow the tutorial and you honestly cannot go wrong. I need to follow easy instructions as I can't follow difficult things myself !! I think Sue has said she will be doing a video tutorial on how to make her Roses too at some point. I hope this helps you.
Lots of love Tres x x x

Lots of love to you Sue and all the Wilsonettes. I hope everyone is ok. Love Tres x x x

Alison D said...

Nana on the Hill said...

Hi Sue, lovely cards today a real mix to cater for all tastes.

TDQ Karen said...

Back from hols and about to catch up with what blog posts Ihave missed. I love both of today's cards and the stamps are lovely. My dies arrived while I was away so off to pick them up I. The next couple of days so I can play, so excited xx

iReneM said...

These interwoven borders are so lovely how you've used them here.
Altogether a gorgoeus card.

I like the flowery look of the 2nd card too.


Chaffinch said...

I have been waiting for ages for the second card to appear on this blog. I did manage to get a couple screen shots of it when it was on C&C - to guide me when I wanted to do something similar. There is just something about it - well worth the wait.

SusanP, Kent said...

Two beautiful cards today. Will have to save video for tomorrow though.
I love the black/gold/milk combo - it never fails. The background paper in the second card is so pretty and I do like these stamps too.

craftyhugs said...

Hi Sue,

Superb as always! Never tire of watching you, you make it all look so easy.
looking forward to seeing more inspirational cards.

Diane Green said...

The first card is beautiful Sue and I do love those colours together. I'm very excites because my California dies arrived yesterday but will have to wait to play with them. The second card is also beautiful I love the stamp and the pretty flower out of matching paper . Simple but so effective . Hope you are enjoying yourself. Love Diane G xx

Unknown said...

Afternoon Sue, well along and busy day so far for me today so sorry for the late check in. I love both of today's cards, both so different to each other. The black and gold combo isso sophisticated, and the patterned one could easily be adapted for a male themed card, so thanks so much for the idea.
Lynne, the rib is pretty sore at the moment as am having to do much more than I would like due to my mother fracturing her ankle last week.
Foaling is still going on, number three arrived at 7.35 this morning, but it was a tough delivery, as the foal was large and gphad a leg back, when we got to the mare she had pushed the head and one leg out but I had to go in and find the other, we managed to get the foal out alive, but we think there is something not quite right with his limbs so are holding off with a name for him. Sorry for the essay!! Hugs to all xxx

Carol S. said...

Two gorgeous cards and both stunning. Love the sentiments too. Hugs, Carol S.xx

Unknown said...

Both are beautiful cards.Love the sentiment on the second one.

Unknown said...

Hi Sue and all Wilsonettes
I received my dies yesterday and am able to practise today's first card, very excited! I am a micro bead fan and really like the effect it has on patterned paper. Both cards would be a dream to receive. Thanks for the explanation about the different sets and the thinking behind them. Hope you are having a good time Sue and not working too hard. Hugs to all those that need it. Enjoy your day Cameeli, I'm sure it will a day you will remember all your life with warmth and affection. I know I do with my eldest son's wedding and am waiting for next year for the youngest one to say 'I do' in July 2015.
Have a great evening all

Tina said...

Hi Sue,

2 Fantastic cards today. I love the first card so much, that is my type of card, more is more, but I do love the sentiment of the second card, and micro beads, just love em!. I find them a bit crunchy after using them when you bite your nails, there is always one little sucker stuck under your nail.

Pam sending you love and a gentle squeeze.X

Cam, So pleased you are nearing the end of the exhausting wedding process, or at least until you have to do the flowers. If I can can say anything as an old MOB of 1 week. On the day you will have done everything possible to make this day happen, so now it's your time to enjoy all the fruits of your labour. Hark at me! I got all my advice from all our friends on Sue's blog, and they really helped. They're wonderful.

Yorkielass, your so thoughtful thank you.

Steph, thank you for being there. X

Kind regards :-)

Hi Sue
Hope you are having a rest while you are over with your mum> Two stunning card today. I must try and catch up with the videos. Two to watch now. And the second one features the micro beads. Haven't seen these in awhile. Can't really say as I could choose a favourite as they are both stunning in their own way. Love reading your whimsy's Steph and Norah. Hope you will be feeling better tomorrow Steph. Hugs to you both and to Pam. I know you will have your ups and downs along the way.

magpie said...

Helloooo sue and the Wilsonettes! Ooooo Sue, two beauties today. Loved the border one in the black and soft gold. I remember what you did when you did a demo.....good grief, I'm shocked myself! Lol! I'm so glad you've done a video though......! It's is so classy and would be gorgeous for any occasion. Love the second one too, it's so pretty. I love the rose in the pretty paper. I love this style, like a Victorian vintage. Gorgeous! Thank you soooo much for all the inspiration you give us xx Oooo and to say, I have your faux suade leaves and I did a bit of an experiment with one of them. I covered it with the perfect medium, poured silver embossing powder on it and used the heat gun....it's come up pretty good! x
Just to say hi to Sophie n gran, hope you're okay x Lorraine (Freeman), hope your mum had a great birthday today! x Myra, love the story about the bunny. Children are wonderful with the things that say. We have to keep doing that, looking at life through a childs eyes. Lynne, eee eck, those fur babies aren't daft are they? I can just imagine them looking at you as if to say if you think we're going out in that you've got another think coming....! You could have done a scene from "Singing in the Rain!" I used to do that walking to work...(only in my head though 'cause it was on a main road....) lol! Lyndsey, Love the name Frond and so sorry to hear about foal number three, I hope he'll be alright x Sending love to you and your mum. I hope your rib and your mums ankle heal soon x Hope you and your friend had a wonderful day in Falkirk Norah x Cameeli, have a great time with your mum and dad tomorrow. I used to live in Scarborough....x Sending love to you Sue. Hope you are having a wonderful time with your family. Love and hugs to everyone too. So glad that the hugs help you Pam. One size fits all! Good luck everyone in the Wednesday card giveaway! See you Thursday! xx Love Karen xx

Unknown said...

Both cards are beautiful. The 1st is elegant and sophisticated. The 2nd is very Cath Kidston esque. Just can't choose a favourite.

Hugs Alice xx

Unknown said...

Hi Sue, two beautiful cards. I think if I had to choose it would have to be the first one.

johanna said...

two beautiful cards sue on the second one have you inked around the stamped piece before you took it out of the die, it looks like it and it makes a lovely finish, i think they are both lovely and this time i don't have a favourite

Victoria said...

At last, I've had a minute to watch the video. Lovely card, no wonder it's a favourite of yours. But I have to say that I prefer the second one. So different, love the fact that you've sliced a bit off the circle! Also the forked banners are quite 'funky'. Great!!

Gorgeous cards today but like the first the most.

Unknown said...

Hi Sue, I'm rather late with my comment this evening but I could never not leave a comment.
I loved The Fabulous Video today, I really enjoyed The Tips and Techniques you shared with us and how you explained the difference between The Dies.
I so Love Black as you know and putting it with your Soft Gold is Fabulous, using your Awesome Basketweave Embossing Folder for your Background, I really Loved how you entwined your Borders I must give this a try as it looked so effective, the Embossing Details on your Dies show's how Beautiful they are.
The Awesome second Card you have shared with us, today we are so lucky! I really Love The Background Paper from your Stash then coating it in my Favourite Micro Beads I so Love these they are so Tactile!
Then using The Wonderful Taylored Expression Wings Set Stamp just Beautiful I must say I love there Stamps I Love your Embellishments and The Fabulous Sentiment. Sue Thank You So Very Much For Sharing.

Great job on the video, and what an elegant card you created. Always giving us a new way to look at our dies. The second is just adorable...love the background paper.

Karen G Ratcliffe said...

Hi Sue
Wonderful, informative tutorial as usual! Love the card and your dies. So glad you explained the uses and different ways to use your dies. Both cards are exquisite, but the first card just captures my eye. Will have to get some more of your dies so I can try a card like in your tutorial. Hugs, Karen

Sandy H said...

Two lovely cards today. The first is so elegant. On the second card matching the rose to the background paper is such a clever idea. Not sure if I like the black bow but that's just my personal preference for lighter colours for bows. Off to watch the video.

Joyce Hessen said...

Wacki Macky said...

Hi Sue, love the Tuesday cards - didn't get chance to comment yesterday as we had one of the cats at the vets and he came back wearing a lampshade, he was not happy and also groggy from the anasthetic. That'll teach him to fight strays. he's neutered but tries to fend off the local strays. I think he's defending the two kittens we also have.

He managed to get the lampshade off 5 times in 3 hours so we found a collar in our cat box and put that on instead of the bandage that the vet put on. It stayed on for the rest of the night and was still on this morning so think we've got this sorted. Although he is definately not amused by it all.

He's a lot better today but will have to wear the lampshade collar and stay in for about 10 days! Can we cope.

At least he's not bumping into things today, so that is an improvement.

The two kittens were amazed by him and kept following him around the house. Still that might help him to be a bit more friendly towards them eh? They are 7 months old and although he's not nasty to them, he only has to look at them and they run off!

Didn't get much sleep last night with everything so a bit tired today. left work early.

Craftihappiness to all, love from Pearl

Marianna Hammer said...

Thank you for another lovely video. So entertaining and inspirational. And the second card is lovely too.

Unknown said...

Oh I really like this one. I particularly like the rose in the matching paper. I have been watching your You Tube video on gilded roses and have at last mastered how to make decent roses!
Thank you as usual for the inspiration - I have most of the stamps etc you have used on this one so I will definitely give this one a go.
