Kindness


Hello my crafty friends!  I am all packed and ready to head back home today.  I have had a lovely visit and I still got lots of cards made too.  Just take a guess, how many do you think I am bringing back with me this time?  Today's card is another one of the Label 20 samples that I found.  I started with my blue background which I embossed with the So Trendy Embossibility folder.  Now this folder is one of the smaller sized ones so I had to do my background in two sections, but it lines up and repeats quite easily so it wasn't a problem.  I decided to just emboss the top of the background and I used some reversible blue and brown ribbon and created a plaited dividing piece between the background. I added a messy bow to the side  using the same ribbon, only thinner in width.  The plaited ribbon technique is shown in a step by step tutorial on the Creative Expressions website (http://www.creative-expressions.uk.com/greatideas/toptips/list.php?ttc=3) as well as the tutorial for the two flowers on the card.  They both can be found on the page in the link above if you are interested.  For the flowers, I decided to stamp the blue paper with one of the swirls from the Justrite Kindness stamp set to give the paper some pattern before making my flowers.    I added a few leaves from the Bitty Blossom die set.  For the focal element,  I stamped the Labels 20 Kindness stamp using a coffee archival ink pad.  I added the natural pearl nestabling to the edge.  I cut another labels 20 in brown card and then cut it down the centre to add as a mat to the top and bottom of my stamped one.  I stamped my sentiment on taupe card in coffee archival ink and cut it out with a simple oval die.  I used a light inking of brushed corduroy around the edges.  I used next next size larger and cut an oval mat in brown for it and mounted them in the centre of my focal element.  I added a couple of pearl swirls to the top and bottom of the card and pierced around the edges.  By the way, the answer is 104!  Can you believe it!  All for now, Sue x

Lovely plaited ribbon. Looks really lush. I was going to guess about 50 cards, so well off! Safe journey back.

Patricia said...

Good Morning Sue, another stunner, I have all the gear to make similar so must have a go.
I would have thought about 50/60 cards but my goodness that`s "Double" my estimate. Well it will be loads for us to drool over in the next couple of months.

alimecca said...

Hi Sue
This is gorgeous. I love the ribbon - very unusual to see it plaited- really striking. Well done for making 104 cards in a short time & all different. I have just finished my 150th Christmas card and can't say I'm sorry & that was only 5 different designs!! Have to say though, they were all Spellbinder inspired! Looking forward to Sunday.

val jones said...

Good Morning Sue. Love todays card. The ribbon is a beautiful idea.

I was going to guess ay 100 'cos I know how very talented you are.

Have a good trip back to England. If you want to make a slight detour on the way back you'd be more than welcome to stay with me.

Are you coming home for Christmas - if so have a lovely holiday.
Love, Lynne xxx

happy2craft said...

Hi Sue,
Another stunning card, the colour choice is beautiful, the ribbon braid is so eye catching, a beautiful card. I would have guessed around 75 cards, so 104 is a whopping amount. Have a good flight back, it is really cold here at the moment, hope you have something warm to wrap up in.

Val said...

Hi Sue
Another gorgeous card. Just love the colours.
Will have a go as I have the background folder.

maxine h said...

Morning Sue

Lovely card, love the colours. The ribbon is a little bit fussy for me but looks great nevertheless. My guess was 50 cards so go you for making so many, I'm about to start some more christmas card orders now, thought I'd finished but had several (quite big) orders from girls at work yesterday, all the ones who leave everything to the last minute lol.
Safe journey home, looking forward to seeing you back on our screens soon,
Big hugs

sharon kirkwood said...

This is a beautifully understated card with all the elements blending seamlessly together. Again, like yesterday's card I love the colours they are so refreshing. I must try the plaited ribbon it is like the rest of the card, stunning and don't think I'll ever tire of your labels 20 offerings Sue. It's gorgeous.

Now you started my day with a beautiful card but you also made me put my brain into gear with the plaited ribbon - doesn't it really make a fantastic statement! - this really does have to go into my must try folder. Given that you have made 104 cards whilst being over the water I hope you have really had time to pamper Mum as well. Have a good journey back.

Good Morning Sue,
Knowing how talented and productive you are my guess was 100so I wasn't far out! Love these colours together and the flowers are gorgeous, but for me the plaited ribbons 'compete' with the beautiful labels feature. A great technique to have in your crafting arsenal though.
Safe journey.

Hi Sue!!
Have a safe journey back!!! I love today's card. The colours remind me of my Mum, who married in those colours during the war. You always go the extra mile with your cards!!! Loved yesterday's card too,because I love the way you use the blue. I really must get my hands working as fast as the ideas in my head, but I'm making progress. While the cat's away the mice will play, so I've finally ordered the cosmic shimmers and the postage dies etc so I'm ready to start when you get back to C&C!!!

I'm in love with today's card Sue! Labels 20 is a firm favourite. The ribbon is stunning. I'll have to learn that tequnic. Safe journey home & lookforward to seeing some of the 104 cards you've made sometime soon :-) Claire xxx

Awesome blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm
a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
There are so many choices out there that I'm completely confused .. Any recommendations? Cheers!

I have just ordered the kindness stamp and want to have a go at this card, I feel inspired with the work you have done with the labels 20 die- total brilliance. Now need you back on the telly.
