You Are The Best and Blog Candy

 Hello my crafty friends!  I am headed back across the pond today for a visit.  I'll be spending a few days at CHA in California and a week with my daughter while I'm there before heading to Florida to see my Mom again for a while.   I'll be sure to schedule the daily morning blog post for you so don't worry.  I am hoping to be able to post some pictures from the trade show next week too!  Today's card is from the lovely Violette Vintage Label collection from JustRite.  I used the Lace background stamp and white embossed it on some lavender card.  I fussy cut (as in by hand) around the stamp and attached it to some deep purple card.  I stamped the Violette stamp in black and cut it out with the matching die shape.  I used Milled Lavender around the edge while it was still in the die, then coloured the flowers and leaves with the Ranger markers in Dusty Concord and Forest Moss (the flowers photographed rather blue for some reason, but they are purple). I stamped it again, but this time, just cut out the centre of the label, coloured it and mounted it on foam above the original.  On a larger piece of white card, I stamped the delicate frame from the Grand Sentiments set in black in the corner.  I stamped the sentiment inside the frame.  I added a few flatback pearls to the swirlie areas to dress it up.  I used some satin ribbon to tie a double bow, added a Dazzler and stick pins and then added it to the side of the card between my focal element and my sentiment.  I pierced the edges to bring it all together.  Yes, it's definitely a girlie one today!  Finished Dimensions are 6 3/4" x 8" in size.

I've got one more little surprise for you.  Since I will be gone for four weeks, I decided to do the blog candy drawing a tad early.  I didn't want to make you wait until I returned!  So the winners are:

Another wonderful card Sue. The Violette stamp is beautiful.

GM Sue - this label shape reminds of something - I am thinking a wine bottle label perhaps? Love the lilac with the white and black - divine colour combo. Have a safe trip and can't wait to see your fotos of CHA - I don't really know that much about it so I look forward to reading your blog next week to find out!

I LOVE IT. The colours, lace stamped border in white that looks like a doiley, the bow, dazzler, pin and little pearls really set this card off. I love how you have used the Violette Vintage Label collection and the milled lavender really makes your focal point stand out.

Have a fabulous trip Sue. Enjoy every minute with your daughter and mom, they will be delighted to see you. Have a safe trip.

Hi Sue,
Beautiful card and lovely colours they are 'justrite' for this die (sorry couldn't resist that one).
You really are an asset Spellbinders should treasure as you do a fantastic job with all the dies you make samples from.
I wasn't sure about the Violette Lable collection but after seeing your gorgeous demos on C&C I went for it, now looking closer at todays card I realise I would also like the Lace Background!!!
Hope you have a fun trip to CHA and enjoy the time with your daughter also your Mom.

Hi Sue,

Hope you have a wonderful time with your daughter and your mum - family are so precious and it's lovely that you are able to build quality time with them alongside your work commitments. I think this is a beautiful card, great colour combo and the lace background is just glorious but I am not a fan if this die shape - no idea why but just doesn't appeal to me at all but knowing you Sue you'll end up doing something genius with it that changes my mind at done point!

Safe journeys

Late comment - frantic day!!
Hope you're safely Stateside, Sue -I know CHA is a trade show but gosh would I not like to be there too! Look forward to your posts after the weekend.
Have decided stamping not for me, must just stick to the dies, can't justify the expense - but maybe one day will get a set for labels twenty.
Lovely card,, though!!!

Oh such a pretty card! I had just decided I didn't need this set of dies.....I thought, I can improvise....use another set.....make do, and then you come up with this! Lol. I have already used my Birthday (March) and next Christmas allowances, so what to do? At this rate I will be in debt to Birthdays for the next 10 years! Ah well, I don't smoke or drink, my main vice these days is Spellbinders and Justrite.....it could be worse.
