Dave's Fav

Hi guys, this was Dave Bradford's favourite card from the shows so I am posting it today in his honour!  I have used the Lattice Motif die template for my focal element here, but I used the same technique as I used on yesterday's card.  Stamp your sentiment  on dark grey card then  coat your lattice die with perfect medium and align it over your sentiment and run it through the GC to transfer the ink to your card.  Using clear embossing powder, heat emboss it.  Cut out the shape and use it as the back piece for your focal element. Be sure to wipe your die off well, then cut another lattice motif in yellow card, mount with foam pieces atop your letter pressed one.  Cut the Moroccan border die twice with pale grey and twice with dark grey.  These dies will weave together quite nicely to create a cute two tone border for each side of the card.  Just use a few dots of clear Cosmic Shimmer glue to adhere the borders to your background.  I used a bit of ribbon from my stash for this one.  I cut several ribbon buckles from the yellow card and stacked them for depth. I then cut one from green card and cut away the petals and the ribbon buckle portion, leaving only the leaves and mounted it so it just peeks out from under the flower stack.  I didn't use it as a ribbon buckle per se, but rather it was intended as a bow embellishment.   I finished the card with the Cosmic Shimmer silver PVA glue dots to frame the card.  Thanks again for all your support, comments and emails.  I have been over the moon reading all of them.  I am hoping that the crazy schedule will slow down so I can catch up on blog candy and comment game winners.  Soon, I hope!  All for now, Sue x

Davy T said...

So as not to be a 'craft widow' :) I take a keen interest in my wifes crafting. As a demonstrator for our local Craft Shop 'Mountain Ash',she went as part of the 'team' to the 'Stitches' show last week. I was invited as a guest and for me, it was a great pleasure to not only meet Sue but get my photo with her :) (I'm a sucker for a Californian Bllonde :). I watch the IW and C&C demos Sue and the other crafters present, and have to agree with my wife, Sue's are some of the best and most elegant..I especially love the ones she did a time ago with Native American images. Great work keep it up, and I agree with your million fans here..a SW DVD is a MUST! :) Davy Tx

Yvonne said...

This is just beautiful.
The ribbon really does set this card off. The colours are just wonderful. I love your colour combo's, They inspire me to try different ones too x

Davy T said...

PS Sue is def QVC's top presenter and what you ladies all see in that Tim Holtz bloke, is beyond me!!! :)

Beautiful card.

AnneRD said...

Hi Sue, This really was one of the stars of the show for me, lovely colour combinbation and use of the border die. I have to say my absolute favourite was the Autumn coloured one you couldn't demonstrate because of the mesh flowers, I absolutely adore that one. A big 'THANK YOU' for all the expert demonstrations you delivered and for showing so many cards. Looking forward to Christine's shows today. Very Best Wishes, Anne x

Arenosa 12 said...

Love the interweaved border, I would never have thought of doing it. Great colour combo too.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, not surprising that this was Dave's favourite, it has a very masculine edge to it despite the ribbon. I love the way you have made the borders from 2 different colours. Enjoyed all the extra & unexpected shows and I am still waiting patiently for my goodies to arrive. Hope you get a rest this week-end.
Frances

SuzieB said...

HI Sue, I watched this one being made live, loved the way you interlinked the borders. The overall look is just stunning. I hope that you are managing to have a rest over the week-end. I look forward to seeing your show on Thursday. Trouble is C & C is not the same without you, we all got so used to seeing you on there everyday.All the best SuzieB

My dies and embossing folders came today. (i got your dies as love the lace effect)They are much nicer than on tv or the cards. Everyone you got to buy. They are fantastic.
my partner bought the raspberry board by mistake thought was for normal embossing. I didn't put him straight.lol I hinted at how lovely the folders were and he got for me. What a gem.
How are you going to display all these great cards of yours. There is no end of them. Love to see them all in a display. Be great. WELL DONE SUE KEEP UP THE HARD WORK AFTER YOU HAVE HAD A LONG GIN AND TONIC.

Vicki Sharkey said...

I can see why it's Dave's fave - its a lovely card and would look quite different in otehr colourways. I have just given my Mum her birthday card which was inspired by one you did a while ago in yellow and peach if I remember rightly. She thought it was beautiful and it has pride of place on the mantlepiece, so thanks for your help in making her day!

Pauline99 said...

Yet another super card love the layout and the way you inked your lattice die yet another way to use spellbinders.
I would love the Moroccan dies but sadly not on the show on their own, I've had my GC from the second time it was one because it sold out the first time.
I love the spotty ribbon as well I have a lot of that in my stach but only ever use it on baby cards so no I will be getting that out more often.
Thanks again for the amazing shows my pick of the day is down for Tuesday delivery fingers crossed I will be a busy bee next week.

craftimamma said...

Sue, I have watched as many of the shows as possible over the past week and have recorded several too. They've all been great. I can understand Dave loving this card. It's fabulous!

Unfortunately, having bought the GC package the week before I daren't really spend again for a week or two but your gorgeous lattice dies are right at the top of my list. I'm hoping we will be able to buy them as a single set and not part of a bundle. I can't wait to get them though and I'm glad it was such a success for you. Can't wait to see your next design as I know it will be just as lovely.

Way to go!!!!!

Hugs

Lindyloo said...

Good afternoon Sue,
Well here in S.Wales it is sunny and bright and it is so inspiring I am cleaning my office and making space for all my lovely new stash. Yes MY POTD ARRIVED!!! They are all so gorgeous and I am not trying to suck up (I seem to like that expression..lol!!) but your dies are so much better in real life. They are delicate yet bold enough to stand out. They are such well thought out designs and yet they are simple, easy flow shapes. I have thought of multiple uses for the little die already and I usually struggle with those. I can't wait to finish cleaning so I can play, play, play.
Can you tell how excited I am?!!
All I want now is the rest of my order (raspberry plate, pva's etc etc) so I can have a second dose of excitement. Not greedy am I..lol!!
Dave Bradford has wonderful taste. This card is lovely and such a clever use of the Morrocan border, will be trying that with other borders now. Thank you.
With your permission Sue, may I say to all those who don't understand 'The Holtz' (my nickname for Mr Tim), you really shouldn't put him down. He introduces fabulous products to the craft market that alot of us use and although his work is alittle dark to some, he, like our wonderful Sue, teaches us clever and innovative ways to use our stash to the fullest. If you read his books or even follow his videos etc, you will see why he is so loved.
I hope you are having a rest Sue and enjoying some sunshine.
Hugs Linda

Hi Sue, I'm feeling very under the weather today so reading your blog has helped to cheer me up. I love the card & have decided to give inking up the edges of my dies with embossing ink ago. Wasn't sure yesterday but seeing the technique again in the clear has made me think again. With Love & Light Theresa.H

craftysue said...

Hi Sue, This is yet another great card, you are so talented and your dies are beautiful,I have just convinced my husband that they are so very essential in any crafters stash, and just ordered them, I'm so excited to get them. Thanks Sue, enjoy your weekend, and can't wait for the many more brilliant cards that are to follow.

Another lovely card, which I think would be OK for a man without the bow. I cannot wait to get my border to weave together as it looks so effective. You are one very clever and at the moment tired lady I would think.

Hey Sue, this was one of my favourites too, even tho' I don't normally like yellow! I love your lattice stencils and can't wait to get my hands on those and the Morocan sets currently part of the GC blockbuster. I got edgeabilities when I bought my GC so need to get hold of these ASAP. Looking forward to the reset of your uploads from the show and Christine did well today in your absence! Take care, Ness xx

Just finished being a carer after 18 years of very hard work. I am now looking forward to following this site avidly. Love the stuff Sue Wilson. Your talent is unsurpassed. I will try to emulate but I am sure it will be a poor copy!.I have just got the Grand Calibur last week and have used it once. Lots of cutting out but no card yet! Love Joesgrandma

Dear Sue
Sweet of you to post a "Dave's Fave" it is lovely. Yesterday I received ... my bill from C&C!! I always get that about a week before my purchases!! Congrats to ladies who got theirs - have fun! I can't wait for mine(but I have to!) lol.:{}
Oh and on c&c when you were not on the presenters all remebered exactly how you made your cards they were oh and then Sue did this and then Sue did that; quite funny but lovely. They remembered every little thing! Shows they are really listening when you are on. Vee xx

Hi Sue,

I enjoyed hearing about this card on the show and noticed the weaving of the dies for the side panels which coupled with just embossing the edge of an aperture are wonderful ideas.

love from Jackie D
