Good Friends

Good morning crafters!  Are you in the mood for purple today?  I am!  Actually I think this qualifies as aubergine (I love that word, it is so much prettier sounding than the American "eggplant", huh?!)  I picked the colour so it would match the ribbon, which I adore.  If you were lucky enough to get a hold of this ribbon, you will know the luxurious feel that it has, perfect for tying big bows for your cards.  I started by creating a background using the Regal Embossibility folder and extending the pattern by lining it up and running it back through the GC.  I added my ribbon across the bottom of the card and tucked the ends around the back.  I tied a big bow and added it atop with sticky glue dots, topped it with a button, Bakers twine and a couple of decorative pearl pins.  I created a focal element by stamping my sentiment and cutting it out with the largest size of the Splendid Circles, inking it while in the die with Dusty Concord distress ink which leaves a lovely soft frame.  I cut four of the Damask Motif pieces and added each one around the  circle die using the "holding hand" pieces that allow it to clip on to the edge.   The fun thing about these dies is that you can change the shape of whatever you add them to.  This circle now has a square edge shape to it, but we could have added them so it took on a diamond shape too.  You are allowed a great deal of creativity when yhou use these pieces.   I secured them into place with tape on the back of the circle and a touch of Cosmic Shimmer brand clear glue under the holder pieces on the front.  I matted the entire piece using a slightly darker shade of purple and a cream coloured edge to help it stand out.

Just imagine this in your favourite color choices and a suitable sentiment for your own needs.  It makes a fun card for anyone!  All for now, Sue x

Lizzie said...

Hi Sue
My fav colour and the card is another beauty I might do this one for my crafty friend for her birthday in Teal as she likes her Teal fix and i can start to use my teal stash lol!
Can i share my little tip (hope you don't mind Sue) But on Sue's lovely Lattice border die there are piercing holes that you can use if you don't have Mr Holtz ruler i find it easier to use than the ruler too
Thank you

Ruthie said...

Hi Sue I liked this card better when you did it in the other colourway, but that is just me the design is great. This ribbon is really striking, and the mbossing folders are so clear and deep they are amazing, mine have arrived now and I have used them all on scrap card hand have put the whole lot in one box so I can see exactly what they do.

CraftyJo said...

Gorgeous card Sue and I too think that aubergine sounds nicer than eggplant :) and I've noticed you're starting to use our spellings too - you've spelt colour the correct/English/more awkward way.

When I lived in the US for a while I had to do the same thing - adapt to my surroundings, love your post, as always.

Mia said...

hello Sue, I really like this card.. as for all of your other's. Gee, if asked to pick a favourite ???? I couldn't do that! I must change my colour settings as the card looks like chocolate brown and cream... looks amazing!
I have to make a Wedding card the colours are.. Bride - White, Bridesmaids - Black Dresses with sage green sashes around their waists, Groom and Best Man Dark Grey Suits, Cream Waistcoats and sage green tie and hanky.. white, black, sage green and cream.. I have the Moroccan Dies, Sue's Lattice dies, the Elite & Simplicity M-Bossabilities.. ouch! I have a brain freeze... any crafter out there got any ideas to help SOS!! please email dmb_25gdv@hotmail.co.uk... all suggestions gratefully received x

Another great card Sue, I love the sentiment and that bow is just superb! - doesn't that ribbon hold it's shape well, I too am hoping it might be at the NEC or Ally Pally (thinking I can buy a few extra yards if I'm saving on p&p!). I think I am right in saying it is made by May Arts and that there is also a lovely lettuce green & cream and a brown & pink stripe I would like too! Such a long, long wish list! Enjoyed this afternoon's show and looking forward to the 7 o-clock one, Sue x

Lindyloo said...

Oh Sue, I don't believe it - I'm singing...... Do I tell you or clue you up for a bit of fun? You know me---clues, but, I'm going to make it harder, so no cheating and scrolling down.
This song contains a spiral, wheel, snowball, balloon, the moon, a clock, apple, funnel, cavern, pebble, jingle and jangle and a spinning wheel? (There are lots more too, but I would never end!!) You've gotta be singing it now?!
If you haven't got it yet: It was the theme to the film 'The Thomas Crown Affair' (1968 and 1999 remake)and was sung by Sting but made famous by the Noel Harrison (Rex Harrison's son) and, of course, the inimitable Dusty Springfield. You have got to be singing it now... Oh, ok i'll tell you.
I must stop a second and say that I agree with Carol S., this fabulous 'circle in a spiral' card would look lovely in Teal but I really fancy it in Latte, ivory and candy pink. Oh now that's girlie isn't it. Well in 'The Windmills of My Mind', girlie, girlie is often just what I need..lol!
Think you have it now don't you. Bet you'll be humming that for ages now :) (Cheesy grin here!!)
Loved the shows thank you, had the family watching a bit too..Yea
Regards and hugs Linda
