Love That Craft Stash!

Morning everyone!  I will tell you right now that this card is actually pale yellow and black.  I know my picture taking skills leave a lot to be desired, but I'm going to blame this one on the equipment! LOL  I was having a good rummage through some of my craft stash, the stuff you buy because you think, "I'll use that," but you hardly ever do!  You know what I mean, all crafters have some of that stash.  Well, I found a lovely cameo and I haven't a clue where it came from but I was completely smitten with it.  So I pulled out my Floral Oval dies to put together a quick card so I could see the cameo on a card.  I started with the Valor Embossibility folder to create an embossed background.  I cut the largest Floral Oval die out of black card for my focal element.  I stamped my sentiment on pale yellow card, and cut it out with the middle size of the Floral Ovals.  I used Black Soot distress ink with a very light hand and inked the piece while it was still in the die.  I layered the two pieces turning the large oval in a vertical fashion.  Using mounting foam, I added them to the top of my background.   I ran a piece of black silky crush ribbon around the bottom of the card and taped it to the back.  I tied a double bow and added my matching cameo to the centre of the bow.  I used a glue dot to add my bow to my card.  I cut up a black rhinestone swirl spray and added pieces to the top and bottom of the card.  Three rhinestones were added to the top and bottom of my focal element  to complete the card.  Super easy and super quick.  I love the way the cameo looks too!  Now if I just could remember where I got it! LOL  All for now, Sue x

What a great way to showcase the cameo. I'm loving that ribbon! Yes, I think all crafters have "stashes" that threaten to take over some of our precious space. I'll try to make use of your example and use some of it. Thanks, Sue, for another gorgeous card.

Hi Sue what good use of the cameo, I know what you mean by having a stash. When I am out and about I often buy bits to use at a later date and when I search through my bits often wonder to myself "now what project did I buy this for". Great card nice to see the bow back, wish mine turned out as good as yours.

Claire said...

What a stunning card! Love the cameo, really sets the bow off. I love the layered ovals too, I have used them a lot just lately, they are so elegant. Love Jean x

Jenny L said...

Hi Sue,
wonderful card love the cameo. Pity about the colour not coming out true. I bet it looks great in those colours. You are right we all have stashes we buy and never use, but the difference with me and I don't know about the rest of you is I can't remember where I put things. Except for my Spellbinders of course. Have a great crafty day everyone, as the sun is shinning.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

jacqui said...

Great card Sue.

kimberley said...

Another winner Sue although i think this would have to be for someone very special as its so spectacular.have a big stash myself but don't have anything like the cameos must try to look out for some, take care x

Buttons said...

That cameo is delicious and it really stands out so well on this. You're right, you needed to say that it was yellow - oh the joy of cameras!! Hugs, Buttons x

lindyloo12 said...

Hi Sue Yipee a sunny day for a change! You have done it again Sue, yet another spectactular card, I wish I had your imagination Sue. This card made me go all sentimental as Cameos remind me of my Nan as she always wore one that my Grandad gave her. I only have a small craft room so I try to have a "tidy" every couple of months or so, and am always amazed at how many things I had forgotten I had, I am off to a craft show tomorrow though so am bound to add more to my stash, so had better have a tidy up today to make room!

Carole Z said...

hi Sue, wow I love this card..and yes we all have those stash boxes don't we? Love the use of the cameo; I'm not a fan of the portrait cameos that are 'on trend' at the moment, but this floral one is gorgeous on your card, Carole Z X

auscrafts said...

Morning Sue ,another lovely card ,love the cameo ,must find the ones I have

Julia Watts said...

Beautiful cameo, lovely card. Julia xxxx

Karen said...

This is fantastic, the floral oval is top of my wish list, but I am on a self imposed "use what you have first' regime at the moment. I think this might be the one that tempts me though, just love it

marg said...

Good Morning Sue
My first thought was Victorian and then I noticed the beautiful Cameo and yes that is still my thought ...lovely card Sue!
LoveMarg

Jayne59 said...

Morning everyone
Well another beautiful card Sue. Your Cameo reminded of all the odds and bits I collect at craft and jewelery fairs like Scarf rings and flat painted and varnished stones etc. I really must dig them all out again and use them up like this. Your inspiration keeps so many people across the globe crafting or getting them to return to crafting. You truly are an ambassador for spellbinders and card crafting.

Thankyou so much

Beth Peake

Patricia said...

Good Morning Sue,
Oh! WOW! I love it, love how you have used the Cameo. I have some similar,different colour though, must go and rummage in "my stash" look for them and use.......
Thank you once again for another stunning card.
Have a Great Day

Maryann said...

A really awesome card Sue, and I too absolutely LOVE the Cameo. It´s really gorgeous as is the entire card here. I love the palae yellow and it looks even better with the black too, so all together you made a clear winner here.
Have a wonderful eweek-end hun and lots of great fun.

Maggie said...

Hello Sue, that's a wonderful use of the cameo. I bet the colours are more vibrant in real life, but don't you worry as we get the idea and then we can try it ourselves! Who would receive such a beautiful card - must be someone very special I think. xx

Janice K said...

What a beautiful cameo!! Shame we can't get those here. The Floral Ovals have now gone to the top of my wish list. Thanks for the inspiration Sue. x

Jane in Spain said...

I have some 3D embellishments that I can never really decide where to use - this has certainly given me a few creative ideas! Another lovely card - thank you

Ruthie said...

Great card Sue, I thought I must buy that die, and just went to play and guess what I already have it. Do you think I have too many spellbinders, NO you can never have too many. I love the little rhinestones, just that little detail makes the whole thing pop and come togeter.

Jane said...

Tell me about it I have a massive stash, funny that you have never use the cameo me neither, I have a bag of them got them from China . I love the card its beautiful lemon and black are a fab combo.

Nanna Tina said...

Hi Sue
I have these finds when I am suppose to be tidying my stash and then everything stops to 'play'and as you say its remembering where you bought the item, might need to add notes on my craft buys ha ha, I love the colours, I make a few yellow cards as it is my grandaughter Isabelle's favourite colour, I even made yellow christmas trees last christmas as that is what she wanted, happy crafting
Tina x

Sandybee said...

Even though it's black and pale yellow in reality, black and cream is one of my favourite colour combinations. The cameo is just a perfect finishing touch.
xx Sandra

Vicki Sharkey said...

What a stunning card Sue. it's great when you can use those items you keep for a rainy day (and ahven't we had plenty of those!). I looked on ebay adn there are loads for sale in the jewellery making section and quite reasonable, all different sizes too.

Your card is just stunning. I made a Black & Yellow card for my daughter's birthday last week but with a much more vibrant Yellow.(As Yellow is her favourite colour). It was not nearly as good as yours though.

Wow what a gorgeous and very stylish card.
If you do remember where the cameo came from please share the secret with your blog friends!
If only my bows came out the same as yours it would be great. I know you have 1 dvd for stamping, have you thought about a dvd of bows and Spellbinders / Heartfelt Creations? Take care.
Margaret

Cdteach said...

I'm sure we all have an embellishment somewhere that we love and it never seems to fit with a made card IYKWIM, so it's great to see a card that has been made with the cameo as the starting point and this is something worth thinking about when sorting through our stash.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Wow what a gorgeous card!! I love the idea of turning the ovals opposite ways. I love the great big bow to and that cameo oval is very pretty. Such a wonderful card for for lots of occasions. Looking forward to seeing you on cc love Tres x x x

Christine Hussey said...

Morning Sue, what another stunner! It would have to be someone very, very special for me to give the cameo away as I would want to keep it for myself (is that being selfish?). I think by the time I get on to ebay all the cameos will be gone. A truly beautiful card, TFS. Have a lovely Saturday, hugs Christine H x

Good morning Sue
This is such a gorgeous card! it would look great in what looks like navy and cream as it does in your black and pale yellow!

The cameo is beautiful! It adds that extra touch to what is already a beautiful card!

The dodgy equipment (lol) gives us crafters an idea of what other colours go together.

Have a great day!

Love the Cameo, that is one of the items that I tend to have in my stash and keep thinking I can't use it because it's too lovely.
Looking forward to your shows next week. I hope you have something really wonderful as I have been saving a little just incase.
Regards and hugs Linda xx

Sue, have never seen these Cameo's before but they are beautiful,what a shame the true colour of the card did not appear as it should, but this does not in any way detract from the beauty of the card. I can only dream of aspring to making cards of your quality, but wil soldier on as I sm enjoying my grand calibur, dies and your daily postings.

This is breathtaking Sue! I love black and yellow together and even though this is kind of faded, it is still gorgeous! I wish you could remember where you got that cameo too, because I want some!
