Button Florals

Button Floral Sample Card
I had a few minutes to spare so I thought I'd put up a pic of one of the samples  from the show on Monday.  It didn't seem to me that many of the samples got a chance to be seen.  This is a really quick easy card using several nestie shapes layered up with black faux nesties behind them and all decorated with my favourite white inksential pen dotting the edges.  I did a boo-boo when I was making this card as I meant to use the thanks a bunch phrase as the stem for the flower so it would mirror the sentiment stamped on the oval nestie, but I grabbed the wrong stem so it's a best wishes to you stem!  Oh well, I had already colored the flower and glued on the button so it stayed.  (Just pretend that you didn't notice,okay!?)  See what happens when I stamp with out my glasses on!  Right now, I am still scheduled for another show on Saturday at noon.  I will keep you updated on any last minute changes to that schedule so check back.  All for now, Sue x

I thought that the idea of using sentiments for stems was very clever. Loved the show but there is always too much of the C&C presenters and not enough of the guests.

Lorraine said...

Oooh, a second helping of Sue in one week!! how lucky are we... I did email in, but it wasn't read out, it was very complimentary!
Also, I agree with PaulineC about not hearing enough from the guests.
Gorgeous card samples as always..
Luv Lynne

Lovely cards Sue. Yippee I am going to Glasgow SECC. My first craft fair. As you are on C&C on Saturday, I don't suppose you will be there. But never mind I have the TV primed and ready for recording. Please. please can we have a demo on how you tie those wonderful bows, I really struggle with that skill.

Hi Sue, A beautiful card which ever sentiment you put on. Loved the show. I agree they should let you do more demonstrating, and less of talking over you. Looking forward to Saturday, you are such an inspiration and share such great ideas with us. Bought the stamps just waiting for them to come, so I can play. Hugs x ChrisB

I was so wowed by the rest of the card that I didn't notice the sentiment oops until you pointed it out. The black and white borders really are eyecatching. Once again, I love all the elements of this card, the colours, the shapes, the papers... perfection! Just call the sentiment oops your Persian flaw.

Suzanne said...

Wow - I adore this card and so pleased you have added it hear as I missed it on the show - I love the sentiment stems and everything about the design - thanks for sharing

Ditto all above comments - I also couldn't catch the show so it's good to see some more samples.

Sue said...

This is lovely, the sentiments make perfect stems and they are pretty without being over the top cute x

Really didn't notice the "mistake" until you pointed it out!! It's not a mistake. it's a design feature! Do wish C&C would let you get on with the demo's instead of waffling even though I know it's their job!
Really looking forward to the workshop in November.

I think this card is really neat

Amanda said...

Lovely card, I have these stamps so cant wait to give it a go, looking foward to Saturdays show too!! What a treat. I too would love some bow demos, there must be a trick to tying them. I particularly liked the idea of the 6 petal flower you made, I have little ones of these now lined up on my craft desk waiting for the UTE treatment!

I really love this card!!! I'm gonna have to try it now! Thanks, Sue for all your help! I wish I could see your show. If you could let me know if there's a way for the west coast to see. Mimi :o)

Wellington said...

Hi Sue - only just managed to watch the show back & had to say thank you thank you thank you!! for the the flower making demo. I'm sure you've either explained or shown us how to do it before, but I hadn't seen it till now. I've been wanting to make those glorious paper flowers for soooooo long! And now I can :D
