My Nicest Thoughts

 Good Sunday morning all!  Today's card is one of those quirky cards that I could just see in my head so it had to be made!  It is probably the first fully flat card I have made in ages so it may not look like my style to you.  I am trying to incorporate more things that are a bit out of my comfort zone so who knows where that may take me this year!  I started by cutting two of the largest die in the Resplendent Rectangle die set out of camel coloured card.  Next I cut a piece of camel card to fit just inside the two rectangles when they are side by side.  I used the fancy edge from them as a decorative  edge on my card.  Next I cut two of the large corner from Samantha Walker's Botanical Swirls and Accent set out of the camel card.  I cut two more out of the wine coloured card.  It is helpful to use a piece of wax paper between the die and the card when cutting these to help it release easily.  If you will notice, I left the dashed edge on my triangle piece too as I think it is quite pretty.  This edge of the die does not cut away completely so it is your choice to cut it off or leave it on when trimming the triangle.  The next step is to back each of the corners with the opposite coloured card.  Then starting in one corner, alternate them as you put them in to place, overlapping each one as you go.  This leaves you a diamond shaped area in the centre of the card.  I placed one of the dies from the Marvellous Squares in this area, then simply embossed the shape into it.  Remember my card is flat so it was easily done.  While the die was still in place, I lightly inked the area with Antique Linen distress ink.   I stamped my sentiment in the middle of the embossed area using a plum Archival ink pad.   When I do a card that is simple like this one, I can't help but think what it may look like in other colour combos like blush/ grey or teal/white or gold/taupe.  Finished dimensions are 6" x 8" in size.

 Time for more Comment Game winners!  This week the names that I drew out are:

Vinnie Styles!!!
CheekyPaws!!!
Crafty Jo!!!

Congratulations to the winners!  please email me at americansue1@gmail.com to confirm your address and claim your prize.  All for now, Sue x

Lovely card.

Pam said...

I love your "Nicest Thoughts" Sue and the colour combinations on this card are endless. It is stunning. I am enjoying the CHA shows from C & C and have already purchased my World Launch dies, so looking forward to receiving them, and that Seashell Embossing Folder is amazing, cant wait to see what you do with them. I still think we have the cream of Spellbinders with you.

Lacelady said...

This is pretty, but please don't leave your comfort zone all together, I love it how it is!

Alice G said...

Morning Sue,

As far as I'm concerned, you always think outside the box!! You never fail to surprise me with the ideas you come up with- it seems so obvious now you've done it but I would never have thought of putting 2 of the rectangles together like that for the background- brilliant!

Fantastic card and it made my head start thinking about making this kind of symmetrical card with dies that I have. I love playing with geometric shapes and fitting them together. Your card is a great inspiration.

Hugs, Eemeli

So different and so stylish Sue. Just shows how versatile spellbinder dies are. The new ones which have been launched at CHA are spectacular and I can't wait to see what you do with them. YvonneMayxx

Celina Dee said...

I love this card!! Thank you so much for sharing it with us. Hope the CHA is a blast.

Anonymous said...

GM Sue - it'a must try! Watched the CHA/C&C shows last night - ordered the adorning squares and shell beauty 3D embossing folder which looks very detailed. Hope you are having a good time - wish they'd show some footage of the show and the Spellbinders stand rather than just the C&C studio.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
What a way to start a day!! Today's card is certainly a winner with me. I love the concept and the colour combo. I shall certainly be trying it out in teal and blush and then other colours too. It's a great card for any generation I think.

Thanks, Susan x

Lynne M said...

Hi Sue, wow what a brilliant card. I used the corner die for some cards Xmas just gone and the effects you can achieve are stunning ( my humble opinion) . Missed you on the spellbinder launch shows not the same without you. Lol Lynne M

Joesgrandma said...

Great use of these corner dies Sue. Love the neutrals too!

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. You may be stepping out of your comfort zone but you are still showing us fantastic cards and making us look outside the box at our dies etc. Thank you. I love this card. So suitable for so many occasions. Saw the Spellbinders launch. Great dies.( I know you are going to stun us with your take on them. Can't wait to see your ideas.) Hope we get to see something of the CHA show rather than just a studio, which could be anywhere! Take care.

val jones said...

Good Morning Sue. All your ideas are wonderful, so keep them coming. Love this card.

baglady said...

Hi Sue. I still think you are the BEST in design innovation. For me you have always 'thought out of the box' and long may it continue! Hope we get to see you over the next couple of days at the CHA either on screen or at the stand with a demo or two. Linda T.

kimberley said...

What a very lovely card Sue and i love the colour combo.Hope you are enjoying the show and agree with a lot of the above comments-seems c&c are missing a trick with just showing us the studio-it seems a shame not to show us shots of the show and although the demonstrators they have had on seem pleasant they don't have your magic touch.Enjoy your break with your lovely family but please come back to us with more of your stunning ideas,take care,x.

Marion said...

Hi Sue I love this card ,good for posting and no big bow yeh.this is the kind of thing i would like to do ,not too fussy.
Love marion

happy2craft said...

Good Morning Sue,
A stunning card Sue, your inspiration is endless, love your quirky ideas, keep them coming because they are just as stunning as your comfort zone ideas, lol.
Hope you are having a great time at CHA. Hope you had chance to 'delve deep' into the Spellbinders booth, to find all the 'hidden' goodies and stuff to bring back home.
Don't they make 'little' cards in the USA, hee hee. The sample cards are NOTHING compared with yours, you showcase the Spellbinders soooo much better, really missed you.
Give your Mom a hug.

Patricia said...

Good Morning Sue,
WOW! a flat card from Sue Wilson.....No!!!
I like it, never thought of doing this with that Die.
Although I really like this idea, please do not come out of your comfort Zone for too long.
Have an other Great Day at the show

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, This is so beautiful, I love the overlapping corners in alternating colours, it produces a gorgeous pattern. Did you attach the corners before you embossed the centre ???? I love those two colours together too.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

cebelica said...

Very nice card. Hugs! xx

gwen70 said...

absolutely stunning Sue, love the colours. Could you show a sample some time using the botanical swirls full die, not the corners as I am struggling with it.

Bosquie said...

Lovely card Sue.Very different .XX

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, this is why we read your blog - who else would have thought of using corners in this way. The colours are good also, striking but understated at the same time.

Victoria said...

I've always fancied that large corner die and this card shows it off really well. Enjoyed the shows from CHA yesterday but the samples were nowhere near your standard Sue!

Hi Sue. Opening your blog each morning is like having a christmas stocking every day - I have this sense of anticipation as the computer's firing up! The colours and design today are absolutely fabulous! Your talent is awesome!
If I hadn't been so "persuaded" at the last Tool Shed you did I may have managed one of the world Launch bundles yesterday but alas! I'll have to wait! Unfortunately bank managers just would not understand the MUST HAVE/CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT aspects of crafting.... LOL!
Hugs Annie

Hi Sue, what a beautiful card, I love this one. Must say I find myself incorporating a lot of your ideas into my cards these days, like the frames on diecuts by cutting two the same size and cutting one in half, that's such a useful idea. I also love the way you combine two frames to make a larger one, as you have done here. Hope you're having a great time at CHA. Love Maddy xxx thanks for all the inspiration :-)

Jackie D said...

Hi Sue,
Yes this is definitely a wow of a card, really effective so I will be trying this l;ater on today if I get the time. Enjoyed the shows last night and it was a bit of a coup getting Stacey and Kim on I thought but it did also reveal that our card making is rather more adventurous shall we say on this side of the pond! Hope you are enjoying browsing the show I'm sure we would all like to be there with you but we will await some pictures and all the new things on your return
love from Jackie D

lydia jordan said...

Hi Sue,
Always stunning whatever style you do, love the colours.
The new dies look wonderful, can't wait to see what you do with them the samples on the show were nothing to write home about.
Like some of the others I was hoping to see more of the show not just the studio.
Have a great day.
