Simply The Best

 Happy Sunday morning!  You know what that means, don't you?  More weekly winners and we have a bunch today since there were two extra qualifying posts this week.  A quick run down and then on to the winners list.  I started today's card by simply embossing a piece of coconut white card using the Mystic embossing folder.  I extended it to create a larger background, but it is easily done with this design as it lines up quite easily.  I decide to use my teal card as my secondary colour so I matted it with it to create a balance.  Next I used the scalloped Posy set from Heartfelt Creations to create my focal element.  This set is actually done in a half circle shape, but I thought I would show how you can alter that with ease to product an oval. I find it easier to cut the decorative half circle first (which I did in white).  I left a gap between the two cuts that was wide enough for my silky crush ribbon.  Once the white decorative piece was cut, I cut one side of the teal card using the single curved die from the set.  Then I placed my white piece on top to decide how much room needed to be left so the other side would peek out from behind.  I do hope that makes sense as it is a bit hard to describe (but easy to show).  I cut one of the decorative oval windows in white as my next layer.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with Labels 18 die that matched it in size.  I used some Broken China to ink while in the die.  I cut a slightly larger Labels 18 to use as a mat for it. I wrapped a piece of silky crush ribbon around the card and tucked the ends around the back and taped them.   I layered all the pieces with foam pieces and mounted them in the centre of my card.  I added some flatback pearls to the flowers as accent pieces.  I tied a double bow from the silky crush ribbon and added it with glue dots to the side of the card.  It wouldn't be complete without a pearl embellishment and stick pins.  I pierced around the edges of my white mat to finish it off nicely.  Finished dimensions are 6" x 7 1/2" in size.

Winner time now!  We have a bunch too!  For the weekly game, the winners are:

Heather Toms!!!
MadebyLily!!!
Jean Deane!!!

We had two more qualifying posts with over 200 comments this week.

Wilma Brown said...

Hi Sue, my favourite colours teal and white, your first photo shocked me at first, it looks a dirty peachy colour but looking at the close ups reassured me that all was well. Gorgeous card and lucky winners.

Hi Sue
When I re read the break down of what you did to make today's card I saw it was coconut white and teal, but on my monitor it looks peach and teal and that's why I said I wouldn't have put those two colours together.

Oooh how very pink - what a shock!!
Luckily teal-and-white emerged on scrolling down. Very effective use of extended layering and altogether an elegant card.

Lynne M said...

Hi Sue, as with others the first pic looks peachy/pink with teal, so wasn't quite sure. Then scrolled down further and saw the smaller pics showing my 2nd favourite combo of all Teal/White. Love the layout of this card and have to say that now after looking at the first pic a few more times the peachy/pink and teal colours are growing on me . Lol Lynne M & fur babies who unfortunately for me don't recognise Sunday's are for extra hours in bed !!!!!!!!

Morning Sue, just woke up and thought it was my eyes and then realised it wasn't. It's either 2 different cards or the lighting, anyway I love the teal and white, lovely lay out. Well done to todays winners.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Now you have me confused today! - I see Teal but on the full photo everything else comes out Pink but on the small photos the close ups are White - anyway I'm going for Teal/White which is a beautiful colour scheme - I also really love the format for today and I cannot think of anyone who would not love to receive today's offering.

Heather said...

Morning Sue!

First of all thank you for my prize and congratulations to all the other winners.

Your card is lovely and a lesson to all to scroll down to all the pictures! LOL!

The coconut white and the Teal are lovely together if you get the balance of the white being predominant as you have as the Teal is a very strong colour and can be too much if used a lot I feel.

I can't wait to see the pastel colour cardstock you are bringing us.
Thanks again

GM Sue - lovely card - I think you need to find a stamp that says 'I am simply the best' for your blog cards - the Wilsonettes would not disagree with that sentiment I think!

you card is sooo inspiring! :D

jean.phillips1 said...

Morning Sue, like everyone has previously said, the first photo didn't look like it was teal and white, it looks very peachy but on scrolling down you see the true colour. Love the card, funny last night I was sorting out my dies and came across these ones and thought it was time I used them! It is so nice when you use some of the older dies, makes you get them out again and use them! Congratulations to all the lucky winners.

This is a really super card - it looks peach in the first picture which I just love and then the other pictures show the teal and white which also looks stunning. The embossing always looks so classy. You are so clever Sue in coming up with such different cards each day. Many congratulations to all the winners.

Annie said...

Morning and happy Sunday, Sue. This card is gorgeous. I am bowled over (again!) by your imagination and skill with manipulating shapes.
The first picture I think is one of those annoying trick of the light things that cameras do occasionally. My computer was slow today so I was reading while waiting for the pics and knew it was a teal and white before the odd pink peachy hue popped up! The other pics are all clear and show the teal beautifully.
Hugs Annie
P.S. congrats to all the lucky winners!!

Hi Sue,
When I saw the first photo I thought '...surely Sue would never put these two colours together'. As I read on though it soon became clear that the first pic was probably caused by a lighting malfunction casting an unhealthy-looking pink/orange: Phew! It's a a beautiful card in WHITE and teal.
Really like the embossing and the way you've used the dies.

Hi Sue

I take pictures like that all the time - one mis-timed click, camera lighting not ready and subject a completely different colour to what it is - I take loads of pics of mine them fiddle to the enth degree with them.. prob why my blog is out of date - because it takes me too long faffing with the photos i've taken!

That aside, the teal and coconut card is fab, so soft but smart.

Love what you did with the dies to make something completely different! I also soooo need that label die you used too.

take care, hugs

Hi Sue,
Sorry this comment is late I'm catching up after being ill.

I really like this card it's so clever I didn't quite follow the description of how you made it but that's just me. The finished result is amazing and really pretty.

Don't worry about the card looking pink I enlarged it on my iPad and it looked fine and the smaller pics show it as white on this blog.

Sorry again to leave this late,
Best wishes from Katie-Lou sweetlove x
