Good Friends

 Good Sunday morning!  They come around quick don't they?!  It seems like just yesterday I was drawing the winners for last weeks comment game!  This weeks winners will be at the bottom of the post, but now for a quick rundown of a really quick card.  I stamped my sentiment in the lower corner of a piece of milk card using a black archival ink pad.  I placed my Vintage Lace motif die in the opposite corner and embossed it in to the card (no cutting here).  While the die was still in place, I inked around the outside of it using Antique Linen distress ink to bring out the pattern.  I removed my die and replaced it with a piece of copy paper with a circle cut out of it, lining it up in the centre of my die.  I inked my stamp from the Design Element set using Black archival and stamped it in the circle.  I inked around it with Fired Brick distress ink and a tiny bit of black soot to give the image a shadowed look.  I added a flourish of pearls across the open area for interest.  I added foam mounting pieces to the back of this piece and mounted it to another piece of milk card that I had added Luna Silver mica flakes.  I used some leftover strips of the self adhesive sticky paper and added them to the very edge of my milk card, peeled off the backing paper and poured the mica flakes over it.  I really like these as they are not as blingey as glitter, but give you a gorgeous texture and sparkle.  This whole card took about fifteen minutes to complete, so it is definitely a quick one!
Now on to the winners!  The three names drawn for the week are:
Bluebell!!!
Sandra F.!!!
Salem!!!

We had an additional qualifying post from June 21st.  So the winners there are:
Snuffy Snoo (Sam)!!!
Iritchie!!!
Nikkib!!!

You know the drill!  You must email me at americansue1@gmail.com to confirm your address and claim your prize!  All for now! Sue x

Hi Sue,
now that's a lovely quick card. Can be adapted for a mans card quite easily with a change the middle I think. Congrats to the winners. It's a very wet, windy, and drab day here, so I hope it's better where you are, or anyone else reading this. Have a great crafty Sunday everyone.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Pam said...

Hello Sue, love your idea of quick cards, would still take me a lot longer. I like the idea of embossing the pattern into the card for a change.

scottish crafter said...

Hi Sue, may be a quick card for you, but would take me a bit longer. So lovely and not much to it but so impressive. Good luck to the winners.

Heather said...

Good morning Sue
I have to say that I am loving your new dies and have been playing with them all the time, they go well with your other dies also. I like your 'quick' card please can you tell me which stamp set you used? Congratulations to the winners.
Hugs x

melanie said...

Stunning card I wondered how you had done the Image in middle of die now I know thanks

zerena said...

Morning, mmmm sorry not so keen on this card as the others that you have done, nice to see the embossing technique as I have not tried this yet. Zerena

A great card and would be a gorgeous Christmas card in different colours.

Linda (Lindyloo) said...

Well good morning Sue,
It was only 7hours ago that I managed to write on your post for yesterday and here I am again and I still haven't gotten to bed!! Ah well, I have been keeping myself occupied with nice crafty things though. I've been playing with your new dies again seeing what else I can come up with. They really are a lovely set of dies.
Boy have you seen the new stuff coming from Spellbinders. Awesome or what? I have been on their blog today to see the sneak peaks of the latest releases and I am blown away but the new repeatable dies; now we will be able to use one die to cut a whole A4 sheet into filigree work if we so desire. The new border 'cut and tuck' dies are cute too.
Ok, I'll shut up now 'cos you've probably seen them already. I just know I am definitely saving from right now because I can only hope that later this year you will bring them to us.
As to your card. Beautifully understated and yet full of bling and so stylish. Like this alot. It may be a quick card but it has the impression of a time consuming card and suitable for even the most decerning eye.
I hope you have a lovely day. It is sunny here so I am really happy. I really hate (and I don't like that word) but I do, HATE the rain, it really makes me ache. So today I am a happy chicky again.
yea!!
Take care. Hugs Linda xx

Just embossing is something I keep forgetting about. Great reminder!

jane gray said...

Hi sue

Take care

Jane:-)x

Dawny T said...

Wow, cant believe this card was done in fifteen minutes. Like the embossing technique and the sentiment. Must look for some stamps with the amazing sentiments you use.
Thank you for all the different ideas you give us using spellbinders.

Lydia Jordan said...

Morning Sue,
Love the simplicity of this card.
Like Wendy L I can see this as a Christmas card with different colours and perhaps other dies.
Congrats to the winners.
Have a great day everyone .

'morning, lovely card it will suit so many occasions, I must try this method more often. The flakes look Super I'll add them to my wish list.....it's getting quite long now!!mabex

Christine Harrop said...

This "simple" card (yeah, simple to you, maybe) is gorgeous. I love how the embossing is the flower and the pearl spray looks for all the world like the stem and leaves. Very clever.

kimberley said...

Another winner sue-simple but effective.i add my congrats to the winners and remain living in hope,take care ,x.

Marion said...

Hi Sue i really like this card ,very elegant looking.i will have to try the embossing only it looks good.

barbiepinkfairy said...

Love this to me it has an oriental feel to it. Will have to have a go! Have a nice Sunday everyone!

Shazza said...

great card, loving that sparkle x

HiggiSue said...

Quick cards are so handy and this is gorgeous. I need to practice using just embossing ... not had good results yet. my card either puckers or cuts in places. what weight of card works best Sue?
Have a great day
.... Lindylou... You are do naughty tempting me with new dies to desire... must got and look on the site now! Lol!! Hugs Sue

Debby Berry said...

I love the sparkling borders. Beautiful card.

Cazann49 said...

Hi Sue , Miserable weather here in Cornwall but sunny and cheerful on your blog with this stunning card!! I love, love, love your dies and cant wait to get them!..I love the colours and layout, but then I always do!!..Enjoy your day...:)..xx

Janice K said...

Wow what an amazing effect the inking gives to the card, from the picture it really looked as though you had mounted the vintage lace motif on 3D foam! Love it!!

Karen said...

lovely card, must try this technique. I haven't tried the mica flakes yet. Well done to all the winners.

Lynn said...

Hi Sue, wet and windy here too!, a day of crafting coming on me thinks! This card is wonderful definately going to try it. Lynn xx

Vanessa said...

Reading the notes I couldn't understand how you did the inking in the centre,until I realised that it was on the card front!! I thought you had cut the circle out at some point and not told us. I love this idea and as some other posters have said it can be used on lots of different occasions. As for being a quick 15 mins card......well that would be a first for me!!!
Thanks for sharing it with us.
xx

lestim said...

Hi Sue what a lovely simplecard to do, I just love it when you do a card that we all can do easily and achieve a great result every time. I can see this one being replicated many times by me in different guises.nbest wishes, Lesley xx

Clai01 said...

Beautiful card, i think it might just take me longer than 15 minutes to complete also, but it would be time well spent as it's so lovely.

Buttons said...

Wow Sue! When I first saw this card it looked as though the centre was inside the card and you had created an aperture through the middle of the flower (complicated to achieve) but no! you have given us the same look without the added complication - love it! hugs, Buttons x

Desiree said...

Hi Sue,
I really like this card and the mica flakes are so pretty. Have to echo Linda's comments - the new realease Spellbinders have got me so excited. Start saving now if you can everyone - your wish lists are going to double!

hazel said...

A beautiful card Sue.

occasionali said...

Hi Sue. This card is stunning. It looks so complicated but reading your notes make it sound so simple. 15 mins??? In my case that remains to be seen lol.
Maureen.x

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, What a beautiful card, I get the feeling of 'through the looking glass' with this card. I haven't tried using the dies just for embossing before, but the effect is gorgeous. Congratulations to the winners. Hope everyone is having better weather than here, it is miserable, raining, and looks like it is in for the day, yuck ha ha. Lots of love from Patricia xx

Sandra F said...

Another lovely card Sue.

Jane in Spain said...

Beautiful - I do like a bit of sparkle on a card - really uplifting!

auscrafts said...

love your quick card The mica flakesare gorgeous

Val in Spain xxx said...

Good Morning Sue. Beautiful caard as usual but I think it would take me longer than 15 minutes. Really simple but effective.

AdrienneQ said...

Got my mica flakes and Micro beads yesterday so already to try out some of these techniques. Had some crafting friends round for a stich in yesterday and showed them all my dies on my magnetic wall and how I use them – most impessed.

Sandybee said...

Lovely card Sue, I never think to just emboss the dies without cutting them but will try this now
xxx Sandra

hazel said...

Morning Sue stunning card, i was so transfixed on the central image i didn't notice the mica flakes until i read your description. lol. beautiful card it looks like a flower xx hazel

Jane said...

I really like this card Sue, a little different.

nmty said...

Hi Sue, what a stunning and clever card. When I initially saw it I thought the focal point was attached to the card, not part of it. a very clever use of inks and dies. Will definatley have a go at this technique. Thanks for the idea and the inspriation.

This card has an optical illusion of a hole being cut in the middle of your circle! It's so effective.

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Another lovely card. As others have said, it might be quick for you but it wouldn't be for me I'm sure. It would probably take me 15 minutes (or more!) just to do the centre.I really like challenges though so might attempt something similar & see how long it takes me. Thanks for all the inspiration.

Erica said...

Simple but effective. A good way to use stamps too.

Lara B said...

I do like the idea of embossing but not cutting - it's great. Also great idea of using the leftover strips to bling the edges. Super card Sue and top tips!

Simply stunning! Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Anthea said...

Lovely card Sue, love the embossing technique and think this could be adapted for several different situations. Cant wait for my POTD to arrive and for you to show us some more Christmas cards :) Hugs xx

Craftypurpledragon said...

Hi Sue,
I've tried embossingwith my dies instead of cutting them to great effect. Thanks for sharing the tip on one of the recent shows of using copy paper over your card when embossing with the the dies to prevent the die embossing too deep and cutting your card. I was having that problem and your solution works great.
I'm busy this weekend sorting out my craftroom and putting up new shelving for my craft stash. I can't wait to get finished and start crafting.
Love and light.
Suz x

Nanna Tina said...

Morning Sue

What a lovely simple card which could be used for so many occasions by changing the sentiment, the colour and the centre of the die. like some of the other bloggers I think it might take me just a little while longer to make.

Well Sue....You've done it AGAIN! What a great idea using a "mask" to stamp into a die cut or embossed piece. This to me looked liked a beautiful mini night sky. I love it! I've ordered the poinsettia die and the Christmas tree so can't wait for them to arrive. Congratulations to all the winners ;0)

Hi Sue, gosh, that is a quick card! Love it! It's lovely. Its very cleverly done to look like a flower in itself with the die being a flower head & the swirl being it's stem. Love the sentiment too.

Congratulations to all the winners! xx Love Karen xx

Firstly well done to all the winners this week!!! Hugs, Vick xxx

I adore this card Sue, the embossing with 'cutting' dies was taught to me by you a long time ago, via one of your shows, it didnt even occur to me to be able to emboss without cutting, WOW and i love the stark contrast between your card and the inside of the embossed die, its awesome!!! Love it, Huggles, Vick xxx
