Moulin Rouge


Hello crafters!  Today's video card wasn't named by me, but I think it does a pretty good job of describing it!  It definitely has that Moulin Rouge sort of feel to it!  I hope you enjoy the video, let me know what you think!
Buy from Joanna Sheen






Finished dimensions are 8" x 8 1/2" in size.  All for now., Sue x

Morning Sue

Alice G said...

So fabulous Sue. The video is so helpful. I laughed when you said there is no right or wrong to making the flower because I have tried this but mine never look as nice as yours do - I haven't quite mastered the art lol! Love the colours but I think it would also look very opulent in red, white & black.

Hi Sue
Very apt name for this one! Really love this one, very stunning. Particularly love the "fan" and the flower. Agree with Alice in that my flowers never seem to turn out like yours, but I'll get there eventually!

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, Video is fabulous, card is stunning, loving the colour combo, and watching you demo the ribbon rose was fantastic, I haven't tried these yet, but I will definitely be having a try, they look so elegant when finished.
Just a quick 'ask' - will you be showcasing the 'baby carriage' card you had on tv, I absolutely adored it ??
Lots of love from Patricia xx

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
Just watched your video and there are so many useful tips and ideas thank you. I have such a problem with glue dots but you are the glue dot master lol. I never thought of mixing the two label dies but will be from now on. The stamp is on my 'I need ' list for the new year. After many attempts at making the rose I finally achieved it ( did I get the idea from your DVD?) Carol I hope your dog gets better soon.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Although I love today's format I'm not too sure about the colour scheme. For me rust/black is quite dark but I would love to see today's gift done in different/lighter colours.
I have tried your technique with ribbon to make flowers and always seem to get into a mess with the red tape but at the end I always have a flower and as you say 'there is no right or wrong way' to make these flowers.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and Wilsonettes,
Having looked at the pictures first today as i need to wait until my smallest pint is off to school and as any mother knows that is a non stop job from when they get up, to actually getting them out the door and into the taxi, i wondered why you had put a rust satin ribbon on a blue and the palest of pink cards, but all was revealed in the video. OOOH it is a pretty card in the rust and black. The satin ribbon is such a beautiful shade and black against the rust against black is so lovely and makes a different combination.
To all my fellow Wilsonette's have a great day and Cameeli living in Central Scotland it is OK so far so hope you have a good trip up to see your elderlies.
Love and crafty hugs

Bonjour Sue. Bonjour Wilsonettes. Lamour, lamour, lamour !
That's ya lot !
Eee by gum ( as the Northerners say ) doesn't sound at all romantic does it ? Carol Edwards - love your littledog well, cant go into detail as Im still knocked off this planet, and everyday I wear a mask making you think Im such a 'happy bunny' couldn't be further from the truth ! My tears flow everyday, on and off from dawn - to bed. So love that little dog with every beat of your heart Carol xx
Getting closer to spending my voucher's - wont be much, but even a single folder will improve my stash !
Its a magnificent card today and will watch the tutorial later. I loved the flower you demonstrated Sunday, more in my league as my single brain cell hasn't the capacity to take in much instruction !
Hoping you all have a lovely day, here's wishing Cam from Richmond a very safe journey depending how high up you are driving, Lancashire way will be ok(ish)
Love to all.

this card is absolutely stunning. can't wait to see the video later.

magpie said...

Oooo very mwah la la Sue! What a beautiful card! Loving the rust and black combination. The video was fantastic! It's awe inspiring watching you go through all the techniques on how to do these things so that we can have a masterpiece like you. If not straight away to keep on doing them. Practice makes perfect no matter how long it takes! Thank you so much for the demonstration of the "rosette" circle and the reminder of the ribbon rose (yet again!). It's an age thing! I'm loving the border stamps and dies. They are gorgeous! Ooooo yes please! Wonderful Sue xx Love Karen xx

Micky French said...

Wow another stunner, it would look lovely in so many different colour ways. will certainly try this one after I have finished my C cards. Now Sue in case you read this comment do you know where I can find some sentiment stamps that include the word Husband, I have been looking through various stamp suppliers and can't find one anywhere xxxxx

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Sorry I have not commented for two days. I have been unwell due to my illness. I did see your shows on Sunday and they were fab. I have looked at all the cards I missed and they are all beautiful !! I loved your video today and today's card is just as beautiful as your other cards !! I love your colour combo. The half rosette and bracket border are unusual but lovely additions to your card. I love your ribbon rose too !! I think another great idea was to use the two tag dies from the same set and put them opposite one another to create a really pretty topper for your sentiment. a really great card Sue. Can't wait to see the next one.
Carol Edwards I hope your little doggie gets well soon. x x x
Lots of lovely Crafty Christmas Wishes to every one Love Tres x x x

Late for me today, Sue, so waited for time to see video before posting. Great card - my screen shows a teal-and-off-white card before the rust-and-black - but both look so good and love the accordion effect.

Echoing L.Steph - get well soon, Carol's dog - and like Steph says, love your pets while you can.
Steph - under all that funny banter you've obviously had a personal tragedy and I feel for you, being a great animal lover, too. Chin oop, lass!

I've been to New Orleans many times and your lovely card definitely has the Moulin Rouge look!! So glad you did the video for this card as you showed us so many wonderful techniques!!

I really enjoyed watching this video Sue, I just loved how you did the flower with the ribbon. I will DEFINATELY be having a go of that.

I also loved the stamps that matched the dies, went out straight away and bought those.

Really enjoying watching the videos, although I think I am going to have to buy lots more items. Lol
