You Make Me Smile

A very good morning to all!   I thought that the sentiment on today's card was very appropriate for the first new card of 2013 because you all make me smile everyday!  I have really enjoyed all your comments the past few days with the "orphans" and my favs of the past year too.  So many comments left by those of you new to the blog too, very exciting!  I hope to be able to keep you coming back to visit the blog this year with not only daily cards but more fun giveaways too.  And the first giveaway of the new year is to announce the winner of the "orphan" cards.  The name that I drew out to give a loving home to my orphans is.............Gham (Gail)!!!
 Please email me at americansue1@gmail.com to confirm your mailing address and I will get them posted.
For today's card, I have used soft grey card and the new blush card for the basic card.  I started by simply embossing the outer shape of the Marvellous Squares into my grey card.  Next I cut the smaller size of the same set, then before embossing, I added in the smaller sized dies in the set to add more embossed detail to my card.  I made two Spiral Flowers Four out of the blush card covered with our sticky adhesive sheets.  I micro beaded both of them for a lovely texture to the flowers.  A top tip when doing these is to not remove the adhesive sheet in the very centre of the spiral until after you have micro beaded them.  That way you can seat the flower on an area that hasn't been covered with micro beads.  It holds much better that way.  I added some round pearls to the centres (if you have any old costume jewelry with pearls you no longer wear, you can take it apart to use!)  Out of white card, I cut several of the leaves from the Bitty Blossoms set to add around my flowers.  I inked the leaves with Tattered Rose distress ink.  Next I stamped my sentiment on grey card and cut it out with one of the small sizes in the Labels 28 set.  I lightly inked it with Pumice Stone distress ink.  Using the same die to draw around, I made a faux nestie out of blush card to mat my sentiment on.  I added it with foam to the top corner of my card and glued my flowers in the opposite corner. I cut a small butterfly for my sentiment out of blush card using one of the dies from the Jewelled Flowers and Flourish set.   I pierced the grey mat then added a thin blush mat.  I decided that the card was delicate enough to add a second pierced mat out of white card to complete my project.  I hope it makes you smile too.  Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue, Congratulations to the lucky winner of the 'orphan' cards.
Your first card of the new year is fabulous, I am loving the colour theme of soft grey and peach, they complement beautifully. I love the technique of embossing with the die, I tried this technique for the first time the other day with the butterfly magic and it turned out really well.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Good morning Sue and what a way to start the morning!! What a stunning card this is. I love the Soft Grey and New Blush card together, it is so calming. Flower Four has always been a favourite of mine but I love how you have micro beaded the flowers. I can honestly say - I am smiling. Thank you for sharing.

Fabulous card to start the year, Sue, perfect in every way.
Especially like the embossing technique of including a smaller die within the bigger one - just would never have thought of that.

A very apt sentiment for today as you make me smile every morning. A beautiful simple card to start the year and I love the colour scheme. I really must get to grips with just embossing my dies and not cutting them. I have yet to succeed at doing this, but will continue.

Good morning everyone,
Grey and blush what a beautiful colour combination. There is more work in this card than on first glance - that's why I always appreciate your 'make and do' details, Sue. I will must try micro beading my flowers. All in all, it's lovely.

Susan White said...

What a lovely, serene card. This design would also adapt so well as a beautiful sympathy card, with a more simple floral accent and different sentiment. Thanks, Susan

Christine said...

A vey stylish, elegant design, which I'm sure I'll be following, but the colours (as viewed on my laptop!) seem rather sombre for the sentiment. With these colours I think it would make a very beautiful card of condolence, rather than conveying cheerfulness.
Thank you, Sue
