More Exciting News!

 Good morning all!  Card first, then news!  For those of you that don't like the dark cards, look away now!  There are a few of you out there like me that enjoy the dark contrast and this one is for you.  I really liked this one myself as I thought it had a real exotic feel to it.  I started by stamping my sentiment in the lower corner with a clear Perfect Medium pad.  I heat embossed it with gold powder.  Next I embossed just the top portion of the card using the Floral embossing folder from Creative Expressions.  I used my score board and made two lines to separate the areas and I pierced in between the lines.  Next I cut the Window Scene die from Heartfelt Creations in taupe card.  I stamped the stained glass window in black and applied Tim Holtz crackle to it and let it dry over night.  I cut the Chateau Gate window in black and glued it over the crackled window once it was dry.  I mounted the two windows a top each other and placed them in the centre of my embossed background.  I made several of the Vintage Floret flowers using varying sizes of the die.  I cut them first out of taupe card, then inked them in black.  I used a clear perfect medium pad to just tip the edges of them and then I sprinkled gold embossing powder on them and heat set the powder.  I added a flatback black pearl as a centre to each of the flowers.  I arranged them around the lower corner of my window and added a small bow of the striped grosgrain ribbon and some natural jute twine.  I matted the entire piece in taupe and pierced the inner mat as a frame to complete my card.  I promise something lighter for tomorrows offering so there is a nice balance!  Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8" in size.
  I also have some more news to let you in on!  Do you remember my charity demo in Scotland on July 6th? Well, the wonderful people at The Papeterie have agreed to film the demo day and we are going to be selling the DVD for £6 with all the proceeds going to the charity (that includes free shipping in the UK!)  They have asked that if you are interested to get in touch with them to reserve a copy (so they know how many to make).  I have also been doing some thinking about how else I could improve on the charity proceeds and I am going to do a silent auction of some of my cards.  I will put a card on the side of my blog and if you would like to make a bid on it, then just email me.  I will let you know if you have the highest bid or not, but I won't tell you the bid amount (more fun that way!)  I will put a closing date on the auction, then notify the person that has won!  What do you think!
All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, I like dark cards so this card is right up my street. Managed to track down the floret die/stamps so can't wait for them to arrive to have a play . The DVD and silent auction are great ideas . Lol Lynne M x x x

Hi sue love the card the DVD and silent auction are great ideas must get a DVD copy and try the silent card auction thanks Tracy w x

Annie said...

Morning Sue - What a generous and thoughtful lady you are - I will definitely buy a DVD and the auction will be fun! I really love this card so I am going to make a dark card to see what it looks like in the flesh so to speak... I have thought about my aversion to black in a card and I think it's a hang over from my youth (a very long time ago LOL - the big 7-0 is looming!!!)when any black on a card was connected to a bereavement. So that's one of my weekend tasks and I'll let you know! I wish I'd discovered card making years ago; I've been wandering in a sort of vacuum since I lost my husband 8 years ago and by chance I tuned into CandC last year and there you were, Sue, making these amazing creations; I've been hooked ever since - actually totally addicted is a better description LOL. I'm sure like a lot of the lovely card making ladies, I would love to give up work and just make cards all day! If I pop my clogs tomorrow all I will leave my kids is an empty bank balance and a craft "room" full of lovely goodies LOL!
Thank you for your never-ending inspiration, Sue
Hugs Annie

Cee Bee said...

Hi Sue, I am definately up for the DVD. Love the card as a fan of the darkside its a definate hit with me. ALso love the idea of using the piercing to seperate the two parts of the top layer.

A definate one for me to try. Like Annie I will only leave my loved ones a room full of stuff and creations :)

Dark cards aren't really my type, but I do like the elegant look of yours. Hugs! xx

Gail said...

Morning Sue,
I'm a bit like Annie, I think my hang up over black is from my youth. Plus I cannot see myself sending a black card to older people. But I can see the younger ones enjoying receiving a card like this.
On first seeing it I did think it was rather striking and I have surprised myself because I love it.
Great idea about the silent auction !

Rose in Chester said...

Good morning Sue,
Another beautiful card. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the composition of the window - and the grosgrain just sets it off! Your bows are just stunning - mine don't look a patch on yours no matter how hard I try.

Absolutely up for the DVD, will get in contact with them.

Back to bed for an hour or two - my cat's had her breakfast and is already waiting for me to join her.

Hope you're not snowed in where you are.

Great card Sue, love the idea of the DVD and card auction, but would much rather make the day.

Good morning Sue
What I think is, you are such a kind and generous person and I would buy the DVD and bid in the silent auction. Like a few others I did associate black card with bereavement but the more I used black card the less the association became. I particularly like the gold contrast also those flowers are amazing.

Jane said...

Good morning Sus this is very striking and again I love all the textures you use on your cards. I love dark cards and this one is gorgeous. Yes please re the DVD £6 incl postage is a good price and if it raises money too then it's a win/win ;0) The silent auction is again a lovely idea. I hope you raise lots of money x

Victoria said...

Very dramatic today, I like it (apart from the lack of a capital letter for the sentiment!!). Great fund raising ideas. I would love to bid for one of your cards Sue. Best of luck.

Maryann said...

I admit, I´m not too happy about the very dark cards, but it doesn´t mean I ddon´t like the card itself, or the color on other thing. Just that such a small card, easily get a very heavy feeling, if it´s too dark, but yes ofcause it´s a matter of taste, which can never be discussed, cause who´s to say what is good taste or not? I´m certainly not, I can only say, that I´m not too keaen on this or that, and I relaly like thw lay out in the card, it´s awesome.

kimberley said...

Very striking...I do like dark cards although I dont know who I would send this to.I think the dvd is an amazing idea...we have been waiting for another Sue Wilson one for too long and now one to help the charity will be fantastic.I'm sure it will be the fastest selling dvd in history.Maybe you could put on your blog Sue how we can get in touch with the shopas I seem to be having trouble connecting with them.Wish my dies and stamps from your shows would hurry up and arrive...they were ordered on the 4th march and I'm still waiting.Oh well will just have to try and be patient for a while longer,take care,x

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, WOW, I am a lover of dark cards, and this is absolutely stunning, I love the combo of colours and the crackle effect on the stained glass window, and the flowers with gold embossing are beautiful, I love it.
What a fantastic idea for the DVD and the Auction, brilliant.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Marleine said...


Morning Sue,

Lovely card. Brilliant idea of leaving the bottom of the card clear of embossing but finishing the end with piercing. Might have to pinch the idea. X

Donna Jones said...

Hi Sue,

Love the crackle glaze window and your flowers. Good luck with the fundraiser :-)

SUzanne Thomas said...

Hi Sue, I love the card I am going to try this one as my dillivery striver yesterday. Is there a tutorial on the flowers as I'm not sure how toile them. I am definitely going to order a DVD plus I will be taking part in this silent card auction. Cannot wait for the time to arrive. Thanks once again Sue x x x

Debby Berry said...

Good morning Sue,
I love this card, but black and white cards have become my favorite. What a wonderful idea for the charity, when will you post their information so we can help, a CD of Sue, wow. Also the card silent auction is a fab idea you could auction a card per day for a month and send lots of money to the charity. With so many fans we all would like to help. My Sue Wilson card is framed in Texas. Fantastic ideas.

Brenda Hanlon said...

Wow!!love the colours of this one. What a great way to divide the embossing from the sentiment, I will be having a go on this style. Look forward to the details to secure my DVD.

sharon kirkwood said...

What a beautiful card. I'm glad we have the close-up shots as it's only with them that we can appreciate all the wonderful details and hardwork that has went into the card. Looking forward to the silent auction.

Gorgeous card today and you have used those stunning flowers, wow. Count me in for the dvd Sue and love the idea of a silent auction.

Very dark and sultry today Sue, and your charity efforts are to be commended. I'd have a go at bidding, since I'm never successful on your shows.

Lacelady said...

Forgot to say really REALLY peeved about the Grand Calibur today. I ordered 3 on Monday, and last night they went down nine pounds! (Each!) Why do I have that kind of horrible luck?

Dawn Searle said...

Hi Sue - Love the idea of the DVD and the silent auction and I will certainly buy and bid for them. I also have a hang up from my youth as black always seemed to signify bereavement, but I have made some in the past and the recipients have loved them. I received these dies yesterday and can't wait to play.

Patricia said...

Good Morning Sue,
Another fantastic creation, great design, love all the textures. flowers and of course the "bow"
For any who do not like "dark" cards change the colour and you will have a stunning card.

Great money raising ideas, the Silent Action and the DVD should make quite a lot of money for the Charity..............every penny helps no matter what Charity it is for. Good Luck.
Have a Great Day

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
How to start the day! Today's card is the answer! I love the format and although not totally a lover of dark I do like this take of black/white(taupe). It is so dramatic and I wish I had bought the window dies. Never mind perhaps I can conjure something with the dies I have and my wish list has grown longer.
I love the idea of DVD and Auction and hope it makes a good pot of gold.

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. Such an elegant card. I used to feel the same as several others re. large amounts black only being for bereavement, but after seeing your elegant creations have changed my mind. Fantastic news about the fund raising. It is a great idea. Everybody wins. Take care.

Anonymous said...

What a stunning card. I love it. I tried the gold embossing on the edges on my poinsettias at Christmas from one of your demos and the results were amazing, so I can imagine this card has a real luxurious quality in the flesh.
Great ideas with the DVD and the silent auction, hope you raise lots.

Hi Sue
Lovely dramatic card today with the black and gold.
I think the dvd of your demos would be a good idea-I will be contacting them to say I'm interested.Also if you are going to be generous enough to auction some of your cards I would love to own a Sue Wilson original to have framed in my craft area as inspiration,so I think that is a wonderful idea-hopefully I might win and the charity benefits too.

SUE LEWIS-PAYNTER said...

The DVD and auction thing is a wonderful idea I hope you raise lots this card is stunning Sue x

Maggie said...

I like this card. I like all your cards! And I really like the idea or raising money for a good cause - just can't remember what the good cause is! However, a signed Sue Wilson original would be a wonderful treasure so let's have a go. xx

Alice G said...

Morning Sue, a very striking card, all the elements come together so elegantly including the colours. Personally, I love it but I probably wouldn't make it to send to someone because as you say, not everyone would like dark colours so it'd be a bit of a risk, but you could easily use different colours with this stunning design.

I think the DVD & auction are great ideas.

Just taking advantage of DIL's computer while I have it. Now you know that I am not a lover of the 'dark' cards but you have won me over with this one! Surprised that I am? Well I think it is just the composition the gold writing it is so elegant really it is. Lovely!

Now as for the DVD I shall reserve one today and yes I think the secret auction of one of your cards is a fab idea; go for it!

Good luck with your shows if I am not in touch before :)

Love the card Sue. Dark cards are very striking, although they are a bit like marmite - you either love them or hate them, my friend doesn't like any cards that have black on them, bit I disagree as black does make other colours pop.

Anyway, I think the silent auctions are a very good idea - what charities were you thinking of?

I really like this card Sue - you're right it does look exotic. I think if you did it in red, black and white you could also make it look quite oriental.

Lovely to hear about your charity work - we just had a clown doctor staying with us (small charity that entertains children in hospital) - like to do my bit too to support small charities!

Thanks, Susan

Hi Sue,
Great card as usual.
Black. taupe and gold are indeed exotic combinations.

Here is an e-mail address to reserve the Papertiere DVD:

charlotte.mitchell@arjowiggins.com

I absolutely love the Papertiere concept and so wish we down here in Hampshire could partake in similar events locally.

Please, Sue, will you remind us what this charity actually does up there in Aberdeen, and who will benefit from your extraordinary generosity. I think that this event
is about to take off!

Hugs,

Hello Sue.
I am loving this card Taupe with Gold on the Black background seems to soften the Black (in my opinion)
AND that background is gorgeous, love the divide idea with scoring and piercing it looks so professional.
Those beautiful Vintage flowers with a touch of gold and bow really add the WOW factor, Love it all.
I like the charity ideas, and will
definitely be supporting you.

also can't wait to place my order for the Demo DVD which will also be very popular and such a great cause, Thank you for sharing Best Wishes Shahab xx

Great card and I like the idea of auctioning your cards for charity
Sue do you have any hints what Fridays POW will be I know it cheeky to ask but I have got some Mother's day money burning a hole in my pocket

CraftyJo said...

I like the 'darkness' of the card :) not sure about the bow personally, but that's just me!

Heather said...

Hi Sue
You know if all your registered followers bought the DVD it would raise £25,200 for the charity that would be amazing!!!

Hi Sue,
I love the drama of the dark side!
This is a lovely composition - balanced and elegant. Great idea for the silent auction: I'll be looking out for it. I'm sure the dvd will be an amazing fund-raiser too.

Love the card. Not sure about a silent auction as some can afford more than others so would be in a better position to win. Maybe a contribution from people of 20p,or thereabouts, and then you draw the winner from the names?

The dvd is a great idead, and i agree with a previous blogger, if you made it a £1. to bid or something i think everyone would take part.

Glass Daisy said...

Hi Sue,
I love the layout and techniques used, however it is a bit austere for me. Navy and white would work well. Count me in for the dvd, can we have a link for that please. I am easy on whether you hold a silent auction or raffle. I would think it would have to be at least £1 each to make it worthwhile for you and the charity.

Barbara said...

Lovely card, like black and use it often in my cards. The DVD is a brilliant idea and will make lots of money for the charity. Would love to bid on a card, dont think you realise just how sought after your cards are. There is a crafter who sells her cards on ebay and often gets £20/30 for them. I think your cards will do really well!!!

Suebak said...

A beautiful thank you! x

A great card, the window die is lovely and the flowers beautiful. Good news on the fund raising event. x
