Gold Spectacular Spin Card

 Hello my crafty friends!  Another one of the cut, fold, tuck dies this time, just different styles.  This largest die is from the Spectacular Spin Die set, while the smaller dies are from the Angle Approach  and the Floral Burst die template sets.  I wanted to use a bit of my newly discovered stash of discontinued gold card stock for this project.  Since it is the same on both sides, I attached a piece of our self adhesive sticky sheets to the back and peeled off the other side so I had an exposed sticky side and I added a piece of my background paper to it.  From experience I know that everyone will see the card on their computers differently so to give a quick description of it, the background paper is a really lovely warm reddish  brown, mahogany actually swirly pattern of gold running through it.  Lovely paper (from my stash), I believe it is from S.E.I. but the name had been cut off of it. All the other card used is a shimmery gold.  I cut the largest die using my homemade double sided piece, while the medium die was just cut from the background paper alone and the smallest die was just cut from the gold card alone.  I stacked them a top each other to form my focal element.   I used the border from the new Nautical set from Samantha Walker and cut out a strip from either side of my focal element, removed the border and used the negative space for my card.  I added foam mounting to the back of my paper to give it a floating look above the gold card which shows through.  I adhered a piece of redline tape across the bottom of the card and ruched a piece of brown velvet ribbon from my craft stash.  Once you have this finished to add some Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue under the loops to hold it permanently, especially with velvets as they will pop off the tape without it.  Using an 18" length of silky crush ribbon cut down the centre, I made two rolled ribbon roses for the corner of my card. You can see the close up below.   I stamped my sentiment on to a small tag and inked with some tea dye distress ink.  I  piece of Bakers Twine from the earthtone set and used a glue dot to pop it in to place with my roses.  I pierced the edge of the card to finish off the project.

Hi Sue Another great card the combination of colours is fantastic and I like idea of making your own double-sided paper. Unfortunately the pick of the week has not sold out and you can't get away to prepare early for the cruise but no doubt you will get there.

What a lovely card you are so clever with colours, have a great day.

Elizabeth said...

Morning Sue. Another lovely card today. You have given us some great ideas this week on tv, thank you. Going to try the paved pearls technique later.
I wanted to ask a question. On one of your cards, the grey with laced lemon ribbon going diagonally, I noticed there were some what looked like pewter coloured swirls which looked fab? Is this a taste of what's to come for us to buy!!! Hopefully she says.

Hi sue, another stunning card, but I have to say I do not like these new Cut,Fold and Tuck dies, they remind me too much of lace, which I hate, so I'm afraid I will not be adding them to my growing stack of Spellbinder dies. Sorry. Enjoy the cruise. Love, Floss

Good morning Sue,
Saw this on C&C and loved it, the colours are stunning, what a great idea to make your own backing and would not have thought to use the negative from border dies. The roses are sooo luxurious.

Another super card as usual Sue. I especially like the colour of the ribbon roses. Have memories of struggling with Lace templates in the past. This method looks much simpler!

I have to agree with all the emails on your shows yesterday that most of us got into Spellbinders because of you..I know I did!! Best thing I ever did was buy the Grand Calibur and the POTW in Nov/Dec..I've still got lots on my wish list, so keep in inspiring us on CR&CR and on here...:) Have a great day...xx

Hi Sue, Golds, brown & gorgeous golden roses, what more can we ask for, I love it.
Pleased as punch that my e-mail was read out yesterday and I hope you really did like my alternative cascading daisies, only disappointed not to be pulled out of the cup of chance.
Still waiting for my Moroccan dies and Acute Angle C,F & T dies to arrive so in the meantime I'm going to try the Beaded Asters card.
Sorry you've not got away early to do your packing but it's good for us to have a few more shows to look forward to.
Enjoy the cruise, I know all those lucky enough to be there will have a terrific time.

Hi Sue,

Been out most of the day and had to spend too much money getting the MOT and service for the car but I did pop in the craft shop and bought some TEAL COSMIC SHIMMER!! Now I can try making the pearls with it. Back to today's card and what a lovely colour combination. I got home in time for your 3pm show and just had a big smile on my face with Dean's antics. How you keep crafting I don't know. I hope you manage to get ready in time for the cruise. Enjoy!

Hi Sue, gorgeous card, love the deep, rich colour of the brown that compliments the gold wonderfully! Love the roses too. It was so funny watching you & Dean together this afternoon. Proving that things don't always go to plan! He's never right is he? Just so naturally funny & it was so good to hear all the laughter on the set. Quite a "few" people were no doubt in hysterics at home too! It's good when you're happy in your work, makes it worthwhile going. Take care Sue, one more to go before the cruise! Hope you manage to get a rest too! love karen xx

Sue Parish said...

Hi Sue,
Love the warm and luxurious colouring and textures in this card - and the roses are just gorgeous!
I enjoyed The Two Wilsons Show very much today! (And am glad I have a recording to entertain me on dull days!) Dean's expressions and antics when things went wrong were hilarious, whilst you remained so calm and dignified by comparison. You'd make a great comedy duo!
I missed the 6pm show unfortunately, but am waiting for the recording scheduled to be broadcast at midnight in the hope it's the one I missed.

Hi Sue,
I am singing.....and all I can think of is American Indians....but the song has nothing to do with them.... It must be something to do with Spirits...ahhhh that's it_
'Going on up to the Spirits in the Sky (in the sky),
That's where I'm gonna go when I die (when I die)
When I die and they lay me to rest,
I'm gonna go to the place that's the best.'
Doesn't have anything to do with your swirly fold and tuck die does it,.. so where did my mind go with that one? Well I think it was the swirly negative space from the border diecuts; they look like smoke or 'spirits' raising up to the heavens like the American Indians use to say (well they did in my favourite movies anyway!!) LOL..
Bet you didn't get that one..Oh you did? Ah well, I will win this game one day! What do you mean, I am the only one playing it.....lol!!
Love the card Sue, really simply put together as you say, yet so very effective and looks alot more time consuming.
Have a great time on the cruise. Hugs Linda xx

Hi Sue

Love the colours and dies used for this card. Keep them coming. Don't know how you produce so many cards. I have to admit I cannot produce even a 1/4 of them - but I want to make them all!
