Miss You Times Three

Hello everyone!  Another peek at one of the cards for Tuesday evenings shows.  I did not think that I would have enough time to do justice to this card during a demo so I have opted to just share it with you here instead.  I started with a piece of decorative paper (white background with a small purple print to it, I apologise as I don't recall the company it is from)  I covered it with a Creative Expressions sticky self adhesive sheet.  I peeled off the backing paper and covered it with micro beads.  I rounded the top corners and attached it to some purple card at the bottom.  I cut three Venetian borders, offset them and created a petticoat for the bottom of the card.  I tied some American seam binding around the joining areas and tied a messy bow and added a pearl button embellishment to the centre.  By the way, the colour of the ribbon from the manufacturer is called mauve, but it is as lavender as it comes, very confusing.  Next I cut three of the Venetian motifs out of coconut white card.  Using the piercing holes as a guide, I cut the inside out of each of the motifs.  I interlocked them using their curly cue parts and laid them over a wide strip of purple card with a white mat.  I stamped the tiny "miss you" sentiment in each of the areas. (Yes, my hand slipped a bit in the last one, but I had already glued them down so it is what it is! I really wasn't fussed enough to re-do it!)  I added some swirly pearls above and below my diagonal strip.  I cut one of the butterflies from the Les Papillon set and added it to the corner to complete my card.  I hope you have enjoyed another little taster for the coming shows.  All for now, Sue x

Good morning from the foggy Faroe Islands.
This is a gorgeous card. And I'm so looking forward to seeing you on the show tomorrow :)

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, Another stunning card today, I love it. The colour is my favourite of all time, I love the petticoat effect and I love how you have interlocked the 3 diecuts and put the banner behind. The small mess-up with the stamping, that is something that I would do too, but if you hadn't told us, maybe we wouldn't have noticed ha ha. I got my pearl buttons and flat backed pearls amongst other things from Sam and they came on Saturday, I can now try to re-create this card. Can't wait for tomorrows show. Lots of love from Patricia xx

happy2craft said...

Good Morning Sue,
Absolutely stunning, colour is beautiful, layout brilliant, a very pretty card, cannot wait till tomorrow.
Just to let everyone know, I had a good time at Donnington, they told us how manic it was on Saturday, no tickets were sold on the day, which was the problem, too many people turned up without tickets.
Enjoyed Dean's antics, talked to afew of the crafty people like Kay from Indigoblu, Ali Reeves, Sheena, Mel Heaton, learnt afew tips, it was great.
Have a great day everyone, one more sleep, hee hee.

Good morning from a very sunny n.ireland, well at least the part I live in. Kids go back to school in just over a week so no doubt the weather will start getting better.
Stunning card I just love your take on dies you just don't use them as is. Julia did a lovely job while you were away but I missed you unique take on things.
Hoping you have lots of never seen before items for tomorrows show? I am still missing several of the new release dies and I am hoping they are on tomorrow on flexi pay. Counting down the hours.

Keep up the good work, Pauline x

Well Sue it's good job I came back to have a read of the comments, as I so love to do, because I find my comment didn't post. I don't know why. I have been up all night, maybe I nodded off while about to press enter and somehow I deleted it. What a blonde aye (no disrespect to you..LOL!)
Todays creation is just lovely. I adore the colourway you have chosen to use, it is so clean and fresh...I didn't know mauve was so pastel...LOL! Do you think some manufacturers just put the colour names into a hat to chose one?!
This layout is very effective and the lacy bottom panel is so pretty and really delicate.
Hope you're having a good day, the sun is shining brightly her in S. Wales, shame I am about to sleep through some of it.

stunning cards. After joining your blog yesterday i've just gone back through your posts and i'm up to January so far. i'm so overwhelmed with everything you've created. i'm now thinking i'm going to sit down with a card of yours on the computer and try to copy for practice. I hope you dont mind.
