Just For You

Hello everyone!  Another Labels twenty card today from the 4 Day Deal shows (which were only really two days!)   I started with a pale blue background that I embossed with the Mystic Embossibility folder.  Since the background is larger than the folder, I needed to extend it which is easily done by moving the background along and matching the pattern in your folder before embossing a second time.  Using black card, I cut two of the lovely scrolly corners from the Samantha Walker Botanical Swirls and Accents set and glued them in opposite corners.  I cut the largest size of the labels 20 out of white card as a backdrop for my focal element. On pale blue card, I stamped the Justrite Kindness stamp using a clear perfect medium ink pad and white embossed it.  I stamped the sentiment in the centre using a black archival ink pad.  I cut it out with the matching die shape and then used the die to create a faux nestie as a mat.  (A faux nestie is where you trace around the die shape with a pencil and cut the shape by hand.  This gives you a slightly larger size to use as a mat).  I tied a messy bow out of white seam binding and added a fancy black button (from my craft stash) to the centre.  To finish off the card, I added a couple of black pearl stick pins, some black rhinestone swirls as accents and I paper pierced the edges of the mat.   I just love the way the matching stamps just add that extra little bit to pull the whole card together, don't you?  All for now, Sue x

Another lovely card today Sue, and those botanical swirls look lovely on the card. I like the pale blue/black theme too.

Lacelady said...

The stamps certainly compliment the dies beautifully - are these something else I 'need' to add to my list of wants? Yes!

Shame C&C didn't get enough stock - why do they consistently understock? (or underestimate the demand?)

'morning Sue,watching your too short of a show, your skills mean you sell out too soon. Look out Eskimo's if Sue ever decides to sell fridges in your area!! Just goes to show you/WE.... REALLY do need a regular SUE WILSON SHOW on TV.Love the latest cards just catching up after visiting the Kettering Show. 'Twas great to meet you as all your fans will agree. Thanks again Mabex

Anonymous said...

PS I meant to ask...are the corner swirls to match with the main swirls? If so any details available please, Mabex

Good Morning Sue,
What a gorgeous card, love the colours, the die and the stamps, you never fail to impress. I caught the 7pm show, not surprised there was nothing left, at least you can get ready to see your Mum in your own time now. I hope you have a wonderful time, and I look forward to the 'grungy' cards you mentioned on the show, hee hee.

kimberley said...

Another winner SUE.I have simply run out of superlatives to describe your work.We see little enough of you on tv without your 4 day shows turning into 2 day shows! Have a wonderful time with your mum and have a happy thanksgiving when it comes.Unfortunately I won't be able to be in the states for it this year so have some turkey for me!,take care,x.

Anonymous said...

GM Sue - managed to catch your last show live last night - you tempted me into ordering the bella rose and iris die sets - think that swirl is gona be in constant use one way or another! also got some more sticky sheets and the rock candy glitter which looks lovely.

Love this card - definitely another must try!

Expect you will be having a well earned rest today after all those shows and Kettering at the weekend. Don't know how you do it!

Great to see you on C &C over the last two days. Glad you had such success with your sellouts but sorry not to have seen more of you.

I like this card very much. The pale blue really stands out against the black and gives an elegant understated air. The stamps also add another dimension. I am waiting in eager anticipation for mine to arrive.

Gorgeous card as always Sue :-). Can't wait to get my hands on these stamps when all my 4 day deals arrive!!! Or should I say 1-2 days?! Lol! Labels 20 is going to be another fab addition to my spellbinders arsenal! Especially when used with those stamps. My tub has got so heavy I can't actually put it on my selfs, it has to stay on the floor area as it pulls the screws out the walls :-/. They are really long screws & thick shelves too!!! Oops! Lol!

Hi Sue,
I agree with you these matching stamps dafinitely add that little bit extra and pull the whole card together, as do the colours you have used and to emboss in white gives this card a very elegant look, just love it all.
Hope you are having a peaceful day, Love BrenLel

This is a gorgeous card. I am slowly building up my collection of dies and recently upgraded to a Grand Calibur (so glad I did). Sad that my Christmas multibuy still hasn't arrived after waiting for a month (I have been chasing it up, but feeling frustrated because I really want to make a start on my Christmas cards). I love to watch your demonstrations on C&C and from now on I will be following your blog looking forward to seeing your daily card for inspiration. Kim <3=:-) x x x
