Sue Wilson Mini Striplet Die

My 1st "C" card of 2015!
I think this mini Striplet Die from the 2015 Collection by Sue Wilson will be a useful addition to my Die stash!
I cut out of cream card and then backed with double sided adhesive sheet. I brushed through 3 shades of gold mica powder and finished by mat and layering with gold Mirri card and a few gold Liquid Pearls to finish.
Dies available from various outlets. Usually I purchase from Mycrafttoyou Crafting. Setcraft and IconUK C.
Thank you for looking today

My second sample using shaving foam...

Marbling effect with shaving foam...

Another card using the Shaving Foam Technique - I love this method as you will never get 2 pieces exactly the same! This background was quite pastel but you can see some of the vibrant green I used showing through. Mat and layered squares as shown and made the flowers from a Creative Expression Die - Faux quilled blooms  and leaves. Sentiment from a Phill Martin Set and the frame from Greek Islands Set  - I got mine from:

mounted onto a 7" square card base after I hade scored a double frame round the edge.

Sue Wilson

Square card using Sue Wilson Dies
From my own die stash I cut 2 octogons  to fit a 6" square card base ( I embossed the base card first) and in the top layer cut into the card only and backed with a piece of coloured card stock. Cut 3 of each of the next layers and stamped the sentiment onto the top and stuck together to add dimension without too much height. Cut 4 four corners from corner, Border, Tag Set. A pearlised flower into each corner to finish.
