Lavender Thank You

Morning all!  One of my other favourites from the last shows for today's offering.  I love lavender and it is so pretty and clean when paired with white.  I started by cutting two of the Decorative labels 8 dies in the largest size in white.  I nipped away a small strip from the sides of both of them in order to make them fit as a background. Then I glued them on lavender card.  Next I stamped my Cupid background and white heat embossed it.  I roughed up the edges a bit with the side of my scissors to distress it.  Then I inked them with Dusty Concord distress ink around the edge.  Using the matching Antique Tags One die set, I cut an aperture in the bottom of my background.  I stamped my sentiment (from the Grand sentiment set by JustRite) on white card and mounted the background over it using foam pieces.  Next I cut one of the medium sized dies in the Decorative Labels 8 set in white card. I mounted it over the heart in the background using foam pieces.  I stamped my sentiment and frame on to lavender card using a black archival ink pad.  I cut it out with the matching tag die and inked it with Dusty Concord.  I cut the smallest die in the decorative Labels 8 set, cut it in half and attached it to the top and bottom of my sentiment.  I placed it in the centre of my focal element with foam pieces for dimension.  I added some flatback pearls for accents and pierced the edges of my double white mat to complete my card.  Yes, girlie indeed!  Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8" in size.
Well I had hoped to show you some pics from CHA, however, I thought I would make it easier on take them with my phone rather than my camera.  I can't seem to get them to load from my phone after several attempts!  However, I have noticed that just about everything I took pics of has been put online on You Tube already!  I decided that I would video the demos that I saw at the special invitation Ranger event, which I was invited to attend before the show opened on Sunday morning.  Absolutely no luck loading those either.  I am sure that if my skills were actually skills and not the blind fumbling that I do on the computer, I could have accomplished it.  So sorry, I hope you will be satisfied with just the cards on the blog! I love this one!   All for now, Sue x

Susan White said...

Very pretty with the white embossing. You would never know there was a heart beneath the tag, it just looks like a partial frame.

Glad you are enjoying the CHA, and you are not alone with your techy difficulties! I like to think our talents are more arty!!!

Thanks, Susan

GM Sue - georgous card - it caught my eye when on the shows immediately. Gota try this!

Paved pearl update - your blog yday inspired me to have a go - here's my update as promised - used 4 and 1/2 inch blank square card and gold PVA. Ist attempt not too bad except I didn't put a border on so the lines of dots weren't straight - lesson learnt! 2 dots mergred together so too close! then I put my hand on the corner and smudged some dots. mmmmm

Attempt No 2 - drew lines this time! mcuh better - but you can see the pencil line so think for attempt No 3 (maybe today?) I will stick a coloured cut down card in the centre and tape down with removable tape leaving border exposed - will get line that way but no pencil marks. Didn't stick my hand on it this time either - I am learning - but made 2 errors - think I start off OK and by side 4 I started to speed up and make errors - so must breath, relax and keep it slow n steady - it almost becomes an automatic action and thats when I make errors - I have 2 blobs that look like mini slugs - not good!

I think it will take practice - I expect myself to be able to do things ist time perfectly - but not this! Might also try swapping the top off the thin nose nozzle ones on the dries clear glue to see if that would give more control - has anyone out there tried that I wonder?....

Love the effect though - they are so firm on card and I feel confident I will master this technique with a little more practice -

Thank you!

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue from a bitterly icy morning here in Burgundy.
I would rather have pics of your cards any day than pics of CHA.
I too am useless at download etc so you have all my sympathy.
However Lilac for today I will have any day. I love the format and the colours are beautiful.
Will just have to get a heat gun to stay here.

Hi Sue,
love the colour and composition of this card. How do you do it?
And hey, we can't be absolutely brilliant at EVERYTHING, and I'd rather see a card from you than pics of the CHA.
I can't upload from my phone, either. OK with camera to PC... but then I'm not a brilliant photographer.
