Finest Quality Friendship

Morning all!  I should be just about touching down back in the UK as this post goes live.  I am looking forward to being back home, but I will miss my Mom and the Florida sunshine too.  I have a bunch of shows in March and a trade show in February to keep me busy though.  Back to Kraft card in it's purest form today.  I love black, kraft and white, it just always looks great to me.  I simply stamped the lace medallion all over my kraft card using a black archival ink pad.  I used the middle die in the Resplendent Rectangles to cut an aperture in the centre.  Next I stamped the lace background on another piece of kraft card using a perfect medium pad.  I heat embossed it with white powder.  This gave me the background for the area behind my aperture.  I covered a piece of white card with a sticky adhesive sheet and cut a frame from the Resplendent Rectangles this time.  I peeled the backing paper off and covered the frame with clear micro beads.   I then cut a larger frame out of black card and glued my beaded frame to it.  I mounted both pieces around my aperture to create a framed central focal element.  I used foam pads to raise my frame above the opening.  Next I stamped my sentiment from the With Gratitude set by Justrite and cut it out with the matching dies. I softly inked it while in the die with antique Linen distress ink.  I mounted this piece on foam and placed it in the centre of my aperture opening.  I added a double black mat and pierced the inner layer.  I easily could have added more embellishments, flowers, ribbon, etc., but I like the clean simple look to this and it could easily be used for either gender that way.  Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

I love the style of the card and the lace stamping is gorgeous but I find the colours too dark for me. Would try other colours. Welcome back Sue.

Karen R said...

A bit darks but that may just be the picture as I love craft card. Love the design xx

Lacelady said...

Welcome back Sue, I hope your flight was uneventful! Love the design of this card, but it seems a little dark to me, so I would probably use a different combination of colours.

Debs Artliff said...

Morning Sue hope your flight was ok. I like the style of this card but im not a fan of craft card. But i will try it in lighter colours. Looking forward to seeing you back on tv. Take care Sue xx

Good morning Sue,

I hope by now you have had a safe landing. Todays card is beautiful and I'm glad you didn't add anymore embellishments as I think the sentiment says it all. The kraft card is lovely with the black and white and I love the lace stamps.

Hugs, Michelle E xx

Like this card with all the textured interest - micro beads and super embossing. Must get some stamps as I only have a couple of giveaway ones and can't really try your techniques.

Welcome back, Sue! Love the design, but I think I would be tempted to put a flash of colour in it, though. :)

Annie said...

Welcome back Sue, hope your journey was smooth. I'm sure you'll miss your Mom -I know what it's like having your Mom living in another country. Boy, will you miss the sunshine with the UK weather!!! The card is lovely, bit dark for me too but design could be used with any colours. Hope we'll see you on c&c soon.
Hugs Annie

Victoria said...

Welcome back to the UK Sue, you'll need to wrap up!! I like today's design but a little dark for me. Always like your stamped backgrounds.

Your card is gorgeous, loving the kraft/black/white colour combo, beautiful and earthy, also loving the heat embossing.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hope your flight was a safe one-you should have brought your mum back with you although maybe she would prefer to wait for warmer weather!! Not so sure about the card-i think the cards are a little too dark for me also but i suppose that is easily changed,take care,x.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue from a snowy Burgundy today.
I too love kraft card and black/white is the perfect medium for it. These rectangles are waiting for me back in the UK so I am really looking forward to using them. Have you noticed how microbeads glow in the dark or low lighting? They look beautiful in full light but certainly give a very different and almost romantic atmosphere in low light.

Welcome back here Sue, good to have you back, even I definitely understand you, if you would like to stay in sunny Florida from here in this darned cold place LOL.

Christine Harrop said...

A little dark for my taste too - but life would be boring if we all liked the same things wouldn't it? You have used what is probably my favourite dies - Resplendent Rectangles. Love from Christine x

maxine h said...

Hi Sue welcome home. Love the card today, I love the colours for a guy card but would also look stunning in softer colours for a more girly feel. I LOVE the resplendent rectangles and use them a lot.

Lynne M said...

Hi Sue, welcome back you've been missed, can't wait to see you back on our screens. Love today's card, I use kraft card often for male and female cards. I enjoy using distress inks on the kraft card, as well as teaming it up with milk card for a softer effect. Lol and hugs Lynne M & fur babies ( they don't know it yet but today's the day they get a much needed trim of their fur coats !!! ) wish me luck!!!!! x x x

Carolyn B said...

Love this card Sue, like you I really like the kraft colour card with black and white. Welcome back to the English cold weather! I don't wish to rub it in, but I'm off to Australia at the end of the month so should get plenty of sunshine there!

Take care and keep warm

Was just saying how this is ideal for both men and women this card and how much I love it.
It's truly stunning and I know lots of people who would love this card both gay and straight, male and female. So will do something similar if you don't mind using my spellbinders and justrite stamps and dies and other stamps.

Sorry your site is being used by disgusting people trying to sell porn sites its terrible.

I hope you are well and refreshed and not too cold back here after your trip back home.

Absolutely gorgeous!!! Love the lace stamp, it is so realistic. I am a fan of kraft card and love the colour combination, its not too dark for me but then I am a vintage/victorian/shabby chic fan and this is right up my street.

Coffee And Cream said...

Another beautiful card. I love the simplicity of kraft card teamed with such delicate designs.

How do you get your stamping/embossing so perfect with such intricate stamps? Is it down to the quality of the stamp or the powder or is it simply mad stamping skills?!

I think the majority of my small stamp collection are the "free with magazine" type - is that the problem?

Malou said...

WOW! I love lace and I love black and white. Just perfect.

Jules Ireson said...

Oh. Wow, I love this card. The colour combination is muted and understated, but really chic. I really like the font of the sentiment, too.
