Thank You Channel Card

 Hi Bloggers!  A thank you card seems appropriate for today's post as I want to thank you all for the lovely reception to my shows!  They were a good bit of fun, but I was worried with them being so soon after Christmas.  You really seemed to like the offering so that was extra nice!  I have used my teal card today for a truly simple card.  I stamped my background with the Victorian Tile stamp from Justrite using a clear perfect medium pad.  In essence, you get a watermark look when doing this.  I didn't  heat emboss the pattern as I wanted it to really look like a subtle tone on tone pattern in the card.  Next I cut a top section using the scalloped edger.  I cut a smaller bottom section using the same edger but facing the other direction.  I wanted my scallops to face my sentiment.  Next I embossed both pieces using the Creative Expressions Floral embossing folder (still one of my favs!)  I added mounting foam to both pieces to raise them for dimension.  Next I stamped a piece of white card with the same tile stamp using perfect medium again.  Now, I will have to confess here that I am terrible at cleaning my stamps which are often used with black ink.  This is no exception!  There was a bit of residue when I stamped this, however, i liked that it helped show off the pattern just a bit so I decided to go with it.  I had planned on clear embossing it to have it show up, but decided to leave it since you could see the pattern.  I stamped my Thank you sentiment (JustRite stamps) over it in black archival ink.  I mounted the teal background pieces creating a channel where my phrase was.  I  made a micro beaded flower out of spiral flower 3 and added it with some white tulle to the left side of my channel.  I used a pearl swirl as an accent across the top of the card and pierced the edges to complete it.  You could easily dress it up if it's too simple for your taste, but it's nice to have a simple,  elegant card ready for the right occasion!  Finished Dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue and thanks for the great shows yesterday. I did email in but wasn't lucky enough to be read out :-(

I really like today's card and think this would be great for new crafters to have a go at as it is stunningly simple.

Sonia Jones said...

Morning Sue, what a great card. I love it's simplicity and elegance. So beautiful. Sadly didn't get to watch all your shows yesterday as I had visitors. How rude was that? I saw bits of them though and I'll watch the videos of them today on my iPad. Have a great day and hopefully see you back on our screen soon! Hugs Sonia x

GM Sue - great card and great shows! Thank You - I ordered the embroided edges set. Think the matching stamps and die sets could become addictive. I really must give those ribbon flowers a try soon - they look stunning and your demo was really useful - I have recorded the shows also to refer to and look at your wonderful samples - there were so many - it must have taken you hours! I especially liked the lilac one so could we have that on the blog soonish perhaps?...

Great Show again Sue,I don't do too much stamping but you made it look so easy I think I could easily get into it. I would love you to be on the shows without the presenters.....let them do a tiny bit of blurb at the beginning and at the end....OOOPS! Not very diplomatic. Mabex

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, Fantastic shows yesterday, great tips and inspiration.
Your card today is so elegant, the teal card is so striking and teamed with the white and the tulle, it is glorious, I love that embossing folder, and the subtleness of stamping with perfect medium, I love it. Absolutely gorgeous.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
First I am so cross with my laptop that whatever I did yesterday I could not get it to 'watch live' C&C so I missed your programmes.I had bought my allocation before the show but that doesn't compensate for missing your demos.
Now I've got that out of my system I really do like today's card - it goes in my 'less is more' file and I have to confess that since I received my packs of teal and blush card I have not stop using them.

Izzwizz said...

Not too simple at all, it's wonderful! I thought I was the only one who did that with the stamps, glad its not just me lol! I often clean mine just by stamping off the excess ink on some scrap paper, but occasionally you get some when it resets for some reason. Anyway, since I invested in some wipes I've been a little better, though not much! I read recently that versamark can perish the rubber which has scared me a bit, so I'm more careful now when using that. Is this why you use perfect medium Sue, or is it just that you have to because that's what they sell on C&C? Anyway, loved the shows. Well done! Maddy x

Gd morning Sue,
Wow...great show and great card samples! I do hope you'll be able to post all your pretty cards for us to see.

Shame I didn't get lucky to win one of your card...maybe next time! Take care always, hope you're all well!
Lots of love, Aggie xxx

Alice G said...

Hi Sue,

Thank you for doing an easy quick card that looks elegant & would suit any occasion. I love my spellbinders dies but it can be so time consuming so its great to have inspiration that can be done quickly. I'm not a great stamper but like the idea of embossing after cos it would hide my mistakes!! Looking 4ward to seeing more of the cards you showed yesterday on your blog where we can get a chance to follow how to do them. I could watch you every day- there should be a channel just for you!!

Alice xx

utilitygirl said...

Lovely card Sue, great colour. Haven't managed to watch the shows yet - but hopefully soon.

Heather said...

I was ill yesterday but seeing you on the telly really cheered me up! Also nice to see this card close up as the stamped watermark really didn't show up on the TV screen. Thanks for all the inspiration yesterday - like you I am now hooked on Just Rite stamps and plan to increase my collection as I can afford to.

Hi Sue, Loved the shows yesterday. They got me through the ironing quite happily!! Fantastic samples as usual. My favourite Teal. What more do I need to add. Stunning! Hugs, Carol S.xx

Love this one, and so nice to see a Thank You card, too many people take too many things for granted these days... lovely colours and love the perfect medium stamping on the teal and white papers, really helps tie it all together, xxx

Beautiful card Sue, had terrible day yesterday with my internet and C & C website. Missed most of your second hour and 5pm show and lost out on the sentiment set with 2 sets of rectangles, which when it came to pay showed the price as £226...... Dont know what happened and by time cleared they were sold out. So to say I was not a happy bunny is an understatement.

Hope you enjoyed yourself

regards

Hi Sue,
Fab shows yesterday, enjoyed them so much and the samples were fantastic. Thank you for all your hard work, it's really appreciated. I've got it all recorded so I can refresh my memory when the stamp I ordered arrives (plus all the other new things I've added to my long wish list, which might take a little longer!)
Love the teal and white today. I didn't realise the background was stamped as well as embossed until I looked in close-up. Fabulous.
Looking forward to March now! Hope you have a great time in the States in the meantime,
Sue xx

Somehow I missed your blog yesterday, but what a beautiful card - just love it! Really enjoyed watching your shows from Sunday and have an ever growing list of "needs" now, as I had to tape them, and what I wanted sold out"

Thanks, Susan
