Rust And Black Foiled Card

Good morning bloggers!  Thank you for all your lovely support with yesterday's shows!  I so enjoyed doing  them and it was really nice to see the spotty potty overflowing like it was!  For today's card, I have cut a five inch square,  rounded the corners and embossed it with the Garden Lattice embossibility folder.  Isn't the emboss lovely with that folder!  Next I cut the Marvellous Square die in black card using the largest piece which is actually a very thin edge die with some piercing on it.  Then, I added in the next two sizes in the set and simply embossed the design onto it.  This piece is the back to my focal element.  For the next two layers, I used other permutations of the Marvellous Squares and cut black card covered in sticky adhesive sheets.  I first cut a frame with the larger die and then skipped down a size and cut a second piece using  the inner square piece.  I peeled the backing paper off both of them and covered them with the copper leaf.  I used an old brush and rubbed in a circular fashion to remove the excess foil.  The circular fashion also helps to burnish the foil and bring out the beauty.  I turned the back piece to a diamond orientation and tucked the edges of the smaller piece into the lovely edge of the larger piece.  Lastly, I stamped my sentiment on rust card and cut it out with the smallest die in the set.  I used a tiny bit of black soot to ink it before removing it from the die.  I layered all the pieces up to form my focal element.  The fall away pieces from the centre were then used in the corners, but because they already had sticky back adhesive on them, I simply peeled the backing paper off and used that side to adhere them to the corners (couldn't just waste them, could I? LOL)  With my focal element finished, I decided to make a flower as an accent.  I used Sam Poole's Button Floral stamp for these.  I won't go into detail on these, but I have done a step by step tutorial that can be found on the Creative Expressions website under workshops.  I used a bit of black glitter on it for bling and added a couple of swirls and some leaves from the Jewelled Flower and flourish set.  I finished the card with a bit of paper piercing around the edges.  I hope you enjoy this set as much as I have!   
 On another note, I see that we have hit our latest goal and it is time for our blog candy drawing.  I promise to do the drawing later this morning sometime and I should be able to post the winners on the blog by the afternoon.  Please check back later to see if your name is drawn.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, gorgeous card, love the colours! Yesterday's shows were brilliant, I hope C&C have realised that they shouldn't do Spellbinders without you and Creative Expressions, you are the Queen of Spellbinders, although to be fair Julia, Hels, Sam and Christine are all part of the best crafting team there is!

'morning Sue, only managed to catch alittle of your last show I was away for a very wet weekend but I am hoping my daughter taped it and yes I'm another fan who would love if you could make another DVD whenever you get a spare moment!!! You have heard of the spare moment phrase I'm sure. Click the heels of your little red shoes!! Todays card...What to say....even I am lost for words...GORG-E-OUS, and all the best words I can think of.

Hi Sue
This card is beautiful and in a completely different colour way as well.The shows yesterday were unmissable as usual.Thank you as ever for all your generous tips.

alimecca said...

Hi Sue
These colours are right up my street - so rich and autumnal. Love the card - ordered these dies yesterday but missed out on the embossing folders even though I tried the day before! Loved the shows - good to have you back.Great tip for removing the GC shelf.

AdrienneQ said...

As happytocraft said I was Absolutely Spellbound yesterday. Knowing what was in the show I spent yesterday morning playing with the multi sets. I love the way spellbinders are now designing all these sets. The new medallions work in much the same way and I am hopping you will bring them to us on a show so that we can get your take on them.

Good Morning Sue, flaming heck its only 9am and already you've over 60comments, i'm lucky to get that in a year of all my posts combined hehehehe, well done hun! Well what can i say ,dumbo here forgot your shows were on so i missed all the inspiration, damn & blast! i could have kicked myself but being disabled that wouldn't have been a good idea, lol, this isnt yolur usual kind of card but i guess it would look good with the oriental theme that's coming back now, anyway, catch up again tomorrow, hugs, Vick xxx
P.S I ordered some of that gold 'opalescent' card Sam has it in and i got the wrinkled kraft card including some other goodies that just fell into my basket hehehe........thanks for the heads up x

SusanP, Kent said...

Hi Sue,
This is a really lovely combination - I'd never have thought it. Beautiful embossing with those fabulous dies and folders (which I should receive in a few days).
Really enjoyed your shows, at least you had presenters who let you talk and demo (for a change)!
Have a great day.
Sue

Love this card Sue, although not too sure about the colour scheme at first but it's grown on me as I read through the instructions. Going to do the ironing now and watch yesterday's shows!!

A perfect Sunday, lazing and watching your demonstrations. The family know not to disturb me unless there is a dire emergency! You are always so generous with your design tips; thanks Sue.
Very striking card today, the colour combinations as so good and the gold leaf adds the zing. Anne

lindyloo12 said...

Loved the shows,and love this card, I was not too sure about the colour combination to start with but the more I looked at it the more I liked it, you really are one brilliant card designer Sue!

Lacelady said...

I think the colour scheme for this card is more masculine than feminine, but sometimes that's what we need.

Saw your shows yesterday. Since you regularly sell out before you finish your shows, why oh why don't C&C order double what they think! I am fed up that there is so little left towards the end, and I do so feel for you when you have to change and adapt your demos. Feel free to tell C&C what I've said!

Maggie said...

What a dramatic card. I did love the shows yesterday and managed to get a few of the things before they sold out. I can't wait to try the fancy lattice die. You do make it look so easy and are so inspiring so thank you. xx

Good Morning Sue,

This card is stunning Sue I really like the colour you used. I have to say your shows were fabulous as always, you are so full of useful hints and tips it made a dull Sunday a real treat!!

I didn't manage to get the deal I wanted or the card it let me add it to the basket but then it wasn't there at checkout sadly so will have to wait and hope they have more stock soon! :(

Good Morning Sue,
I have enjoyed the shows yesterday. I was looking forward for your sing and dance routine with Dean....shame it didn't happen! I ordered my new dies yesterday and record all the show. I am loving the card, the colours are amazing! Gold and rust, and the new M-bossibility gives you that Roman and Greece feel to it! And the copper & tiger foil is so yummy! I hope it's ok to re-create some of your beautiful cards. Take care and please come back to our screen soon! My wish will be to be picked for the big candy draw!!!! Santa, hope your listening!

hi Sue,

Managed to watch some of your show yesterday whilst at my mums thinking I would watch again in the evening when i got home - but , of course, with the sell outs you weren't on!! Luckily though I saw how to remove the tray from my GC so I will see how it goes as I would like to get the A4 embossing plates.I have the square dies so will have a go at this card sometime as I haven't had a chance to use them yet.
love from Jackie D

Hi Sue, I have watched the first 2 shows this morning and will watch the late show at lunch time today. Great shows with stunning cards. I am sorry but no one can do Spellbinder shows like you. I never have to 'fast forward' on your shows. In fact I rewind constantly over the showing of the samples! Thank you for such amazing inspiration. hugs, Carol S.xx

Dawn Louise said...

Totally sumptuous card, the foil and all the detail and everything is perfect, another different colour combo for my must use file. my mum's caliber and dies arrived today so she'll be playing today, it's about time she had some time to herself enjoying something creative and know this'll do the trick. thanks for continued inspiration x

Hi Sue. I love todays fab card. The colours you have used, black, rust and gold leaf look really lovely together. A very nice combination. The way in which you have used the mavelous squares dies as embossed patterns and as frames is very clever and looks very effective. The flower looks great and I love the swirls from the jeweled flowers set. Fantastic shows yesterday. It was wonderful to see you working your magic. Have a lovely day Love Tres x x x

Anther striking card. That's why only you can be demoing spellbinders. What a super card.

Anonymous said...

Hi Sue
Cracking autumn colours. this is my favourite die set at the moment (till the other ones arrive hehe). I'm so fickle.It seems to fit in so well with all the other dies. Smashing trick to make all your dies sticky, brill for beads, glitter and frosting.
Fab shows love the chop on the calibur to break it hehe. I sent some photos of cards in but didnt seem to be printing them out on the show.Send u them later.
wonderful work feet up for a bit xxx

Good luck to everyone out there for the Candy blog too! xx Love Karen xx

Just caught the end of one of your shows on C & C yesterday, can you tell me what the white thin plate is for? Bought it a while ago and can't remember why!

thought since i just purchased all th de-lite spellbinders last week i would be safe to watch your shows, but no seeing the new dies I just had to have them. loved the cards you did for the show. Sue you should bring a tutorial dvd out for us it would definetly be another sell out. thanks again for all your inspiration.

Good evening Sue, this is the 1st time for me to place a comment on your blog. I started to read through other people's, but omg, there are soooo many - and understandably so :) . I had my GC bought for me at the beginning of this year, one of my best present's ever. Since then I have been lucky to purchase quite a few dies and recently the mbossibilities.
I record every single program that you do and just can't have enough of them. You are so inspiring, all of your cards are amazing.
I had spinal surgery a month ago and so I have not been able to go into my craft room, it's just absolute torture especially as I had new dies for my birthday and a few of the new lite dies last week.
Lots to look forward to when I recover. In the meantime though I have Create and Craft on my tv all day and your blog and other crafty sites to keep me sane.
Looking forward to your next card,
Love from Julie x

Lindsay Martin said...

Hello Sue, not sure if I like this one or not, I think it is the colours. I guess without the flowers it could make a good male card. xxx

guffie said...

what can i say Sue but WOW!!!!!!

jordiegirl said...

Unusual colours Sue - but wow they certainly go together. Another brilliant card.

Crafty Mum said...

Hi Sue,
Your card is beautiful as always and I love your colour choice that lovely burnt orange very autumn. I am still looking through the dies & embossing folders as what to choose as I am completely new only just got a CuttleBug for my Birthday in August & I just keep falling in love with everyone I see 'lol'.

Diana Sinclair said...

Another lovely card Sue and great choice of colours for this time of year. As others have commented this card without the flower would make a great male card.
Looking forwards to tomorrows card.

Hi Sue, a lovely dramatic card. I missed out on the neutral card on c&c on Sunday, I had the same problem as someone else, it was in my basket and I was just browsing the rest of the stuff I said I wouldn't buy and when I came to check out about 20 minutes later 2 of the items had gone grrrr!

Anyway as I said a lovely card and I think it could be adapted really easily to be a man's card.

Night, night :o)
