Another Tidbit

Hi guys!  I thought I would show you another sample from Sunday's shows.  This one uses another one of the sets and matching dies on offer.  I really like this set as it is something quite from the norm.  The bundle has some crackin' stamps for the guys in it too (there will be many guy cards to follow!)  I started by simply stamping a piece of black card with the lace medallion stamp using a clear perfect medium pad.  I used clear embossing powder and heat embossed so you catch glimpses of the medallion all over the background.  Since it is tone on tone though, it isn't overwhelming, just interesting.  Next I used the largest size of the Justrite Vintage Label and Banner die set to cut an aperture in the background.  I settled on a deep rose coloured card and embossed it using the Floral embossing folder by Creative Expressions.  I used a bit of mounting foam on my background to raise it for dimension and placed it over my embossed rose coloured piece.  Next I stamped a border using the Classic Embroidered Edges Two by JustRite Stamps using a black archival ink pad on my rose card.  I layered it with a thin mat of blush card and glued it in place towards the bottom of my card.  I tied a messy bow out of black american seam binding and added a fancy button to the centre.  Next I stamped the JustRite Pearl Label stamp on blush card with a black archival ink pad.  I cut it out with the matching smaller die in the set.  I stamped it again and this time just cut out the centre with a small scalloped oval die. I did some very light inking with Spun Sugar distress ink while it was still in the die.   I stamped my sentiment in the centre.  I mounted these two pieces with foam and then placed them in the centre of my aperture, completing my focal element.  Now the fun part!  I made flowers from leftover pieces of silky crush ribbon.  You only need an inch or less for these, so save your scraps, these are so easy! Cut them into small circular-ish pieces of differing sizes.  Hold them in the middle of the circle with a pokey tool and one at a time, heat until the edges melt a bit.  Glue one or two together and add a flatback pearl to the centre to finish your flower.  I did several and cascaded them down my card (I love that look!)  I pierced the edges of my matted blush card layers to complete my card.  Finished Dimensions 7 x 8 1/4" in size.  If you aren't a pink person, just picture it in teal or lavender or taupe!  It really will work nicely with any colour you desire.  I hope you like it!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, what a beautiful striking card, love the embossing on the black card and the flowers, a great way to use up all your scrap pieces of ribbon. I can hear my bank card starting to groan as I add more dies and stamps to my list of must haves. Lol Lynne M & fur babies x x

Alice G said...

Morning Sue,

Sue this is just so breathtaking. The colours are so vibrant (they put me in mind of burlesque dancers or can can girls). Again I love how you have used the lace border and medallion stamps . This is a must for me to try today. I have everything I need to get started. To think that I always threw my scraps of ribbon away - well I won't be doing that again in a hurry. Thank you Sue.

Great card again, Sue, love the flowers, the background embossing, the colours, the all!!

Question - can I afford to go down the stamping road? Already spend way too much on dies. Trouble is, so much temptation on offer. I am weak. Help..............

Another stunning card, but not sure about the colours.

Donna Jones said...

Hi Sue,

Unusual label shape, not totally drawn to it but could use the layout with another shape. Apart from that I love the card especially the clear embossing on black card.

This is a really sumptuous-looking card! The pink is lovely. I prefer flowers done this way too, much softer. I've noticed lately that you're including the finished size of the card which I do find helpful. Thanks.

Good Morning Sue,
Love the background, the stamps, the dies, the dramatic colours, the flowers - everything! Still haven't tried doing flowers this way yet but I think they are beautiful - can imagine red poppies, the ribbon would be perfect texture for those.

CraftyJo said...

Someone here once commented that 'CraftyJo' (me!) must be at the wrong blog if I didn't like ribbons and bows :) I don't think you expect to please everybody all of the time and I assume you want us to be inspired by, and not a slave to, your ideas.

I like certain aspects of this card today, as I do most days..... it wouldn't 'do' for us all to be the same or we'd all be churning-out identical cards :)
