Boho Chic Meets The Striplet. . . . . . . .

Good morning everyone. Are we all ready for the weekend? I'm at work today but as its usually busy, the time passes quickly. Luckily, I still get to see a couple of Sue Wilson's shows today, yippee! (and all of tomorrows, double yippee!)

Thank you for your kind comments on my sympathy card. I'll show the other one I photographed  soon. I'm going to use that poor lily die on a happier card as its a shame to keep it just for sad occasions. 

Now, today's card was an overdue play with my lovely Striplet.
A very simple layered up card using cream and black card with a piece of First Edition Boho Chic paper with The Striplet cut out of it.
This paper has a lovely clear embossed effect pattern on it, which you can just see on the next photo.

Cream A5 card base
Black PMD card
Boho Chic 8x8 paper pad 
The Striplet
SB Botanical Swirls and Accents (the leaf die)
Sissix Squares
Hobbycraft sentiment stamp

Lovely pattern, you can just see.

Well, enjoy your weekend with Sue Wilson. Haven't broken the news to Mr D as yet but soon as he sees the remote control welded to my chair, he will no doubt roll his eyes and go and mow the lawn lol!!!

Have a great weekend folks.

  8. Hi Ang. Another great card using that favourite Striplet. I love this card, a good one for the men too, thank goodness. I have several male birthday cards to make and I will be using this die for all of them. I am sat watching Sue while I type, wish I coud afford all of her goodies! Have a good weekend. Take care.

  9. Wow Ang! It amazes me how you can make an entire card using only one die and yet there is so much interest to it!! This is brilliant! Love the colours, just so creative! You crafty woman you!! hugs :)

  10. Hi Ang,
    beautiful card today.
    What a very fab way to use a Sue die, and lovely colour choice.
    John is now a star on C & C as his cards were included in Sue's show.
    I have had good news today I won 2 tickets to Ally Pally.
    So I could meet John in person, maybe.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  11. This is gorgeous Ang! Truly truly gorgeous! Lovely to see John's work being shown He'll be on tele himself soon I just wish I could afford to buy more crafty goodies Hubby never minds but I do feel guilty at times BUT I have this Striplet and the Botanical Accents so will def be trying this out Live the colour way Right up my street

    1. PS Will be trying to catch Sue's shows Been busy with hubby swearing at his lack of DIY skills trying to mend a dripping tap!

  12. I like how you used the striplet on this card! Too bad you have to work today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend though!

  13. Hi Ang Lovely Card,love all the different ways you use the Striplets Die.I have not seen any of Sues shows,but they are recorded.I must try and see Johns Cards,that man is a winner,and it makes me so happy to see where he is going.

  14. Hi Ang,
    So pleased to see the striplet back! The paper is gorgeous, so delicate! A lovely card! Do you think John can ask Sue W to slow down for a while while the rest do us catch up. I want (no, need) so many of her Christmas sets and lim still working my way through some of the first release!
    You kindly threw open an invitation to meet up on the Thursday night of the NEC. Unfortunately, I can't manage to get up to Brum for then, but I would love to meet up with the Scottish posse for a coffee during the day on Friday if they're up for it. Best wishes, Anne O

  15. Absolutely GORGEOUS creation, the super dies Ang, and beautiful colour combo.xx
    The Journey is the Start

  16. Love your Striplet too! Super card Ang, your colour combination is lovely. Lucky you that the other half goes and mows the lawn when you get the remote, I just get a look and a sigh! Michelle x
