Two Colourways


Hi my crafty friends! Sounds like sage advice to me, the card sentiment.  This is the card that Dean and I thought had a Moulin Rouge/Carnival/Can Can dancer feel to it!  It sort of does, I think, but that is some of it's charm too. I managed to snap off a few quick pics before they whisked it away to be sent out after my demo.  You'll have to tell me which colour way  you prefer!   I started with a piece of striped decorative card.  I used the swirl stamp from the Butterfly Dreams set (I really like that stamp!)  and stamped it all the way around the edge of the card with a clear perfect medium pad.  I heat embossed it with gold powder.  I covered the entire piece with a sticky self adhesive sheet, peeled off the backing paper (eventually!) and covered it with micro beads for a fun textural feel to it.  I stamped the large Labels 29 stamp from the Good Friends set, cut it out with the matching die and inked it with Tattered Rose distress ink.  I mounted it with foam in the centre of my beaded background.   Next I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with Vintage labels 2 and inked it with Tattered Rose.  I also cut the next size of the die as a mat and inked it lightly too.  I stacked them up to complete my focal element.  I used the Bitty Blossoms die set to create my floral elements.  I inked them with Tattered Rose as well for a coordinating look and rolled them to form the flowers.  I cut the leaves and inked through the die with clear perfect medium and gold embossed them.  I arranged them in the corner and tucked a piece of cream tulle in with them.  I pierced the milk coloured mat to finish it off.  Still love the sentiment!  Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 7 1/2" in size.

Hi Sue. I think the striped backing in pink/orange is for me it evokes many crafty ideas. I could see a fairy or even beach type theme to it. The card has a simplicity which is my personal favourite look for a card. Hope this all makes some kind of sense - its a bit early for me 6.15! Great card.LindaT.

Viv said...

Morning Sue, it's got to be blue for me my favourite colour or cards at the moment but they are both lovely

Morning sue stunning card love the colours Tracy w x

Heather said...

Hi Sue

I agreed when you showed it on tele definitely a Moulin Rouge feel to it. However only with the red not the blue somehow the red seems more opulent than the blue and is definitely my preference. It is really beautiful I love the gold lettering and the sentiment - how poignant!

'HAPPY EASTER'to you Sue and all your happy band of lovely followers!

Phi said...

Both gorgeous cards Sue. But I must say I'm leaning more to the blue one.

CraftyAnn said...

Yet another stunning card, I think the stamp is to die for. I like both colour ways but I think I'm edging more towards the red. When my stamp arrives I think I will try it in lilac with gold embossing.
Take care and hope the Easter Bunny comes to visit you.

Jan.moogie said...

Red does it for me as I think its a warm happy colour and the blue makes me think cold, just like it is outside. Both variations are lovely Sue xx

Debs Artliff said...

Morning Sue what a great card i love both the colours that you have used. I just dont know how you keep coming up with all the stunning cards that you keep coming up with. Take care xx

Cee Bee said...

Hi Sue, thought this was great when you showed it on tv. Love both but my favourite is the red., more ooh la la!!!

THis is a card to make in various colours and see which prove most popular..I am thinking orange and brass embossing. But then I am odd:)

HAppy Easter to all the WIlsonettes.

kimberley said...

Another lovely card Sue and in two colourways to show how different a card can look.Like both so wouldn't like to say which i prefer just wish my stamps and dies would hurry up and arrive.I envy those people that say theirs have arrived within a couple of days ...mine definitely take the full ten days to arrive...maybe I've done something bad in a previous life,take care,x.

GM Sue - the red is nice but I prefer the blue - blue is one of my favourite colours though. I think its amazing how different the same design can look by just changing the colours.

Rose in Chester said...

Good morning Sue,
Both colourways are equally lovely. But as I'm a "red" girl, I prefer the first card.
You are so talented and inventive with all these designs, a true inspiration to us all.
Have a Good Day.

foxyg said...

Both great cards Sue, but the blue wins it for me.

Jan Caven said...

Hi sue
Both cards are gorgeous but am leaning more to the red, it is so cheerful, but the blue is just as lovely. I am going away for Easter so will have to catch up when I get home, so Happy Easter to everyone. Like Kimberley am still waiting for my dies and stamps so I know how she feels.
Love Jan x x

Lacelady said...

I prefer the blue version, but then blue is my fav. colour! I agree with you about the sentiment, it's a good'un! Happy Easter to you.

Anonymous said...

Good morning Sue
Blue is my favourite colour but I love it done in red, you can do identical cards but it looks so different when you do them in different colours. My dies haven't arrived yet so will have to play with them after my holiday. Happy Easter everyone

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. Such a gorgeous card. In the red colourway it is very Moulin Rouge isn't it. Like Kimberley and Clare W I think it's amazing how a different colour can change a card so much! I love blue,but can't choose between these two. I hope you have a very Happy Easter Sue. Take care.

MRS DUCK said...

Love both cards but if I had to choose, it would be blue for me.
Have a wonderful Easter Sue and everyone. X

baconbits said...

Morning Sue,
They both have a place as a favourite because simply by changing colour it chanes the feel. The red reminds me of the candy stripe outside the Barber's shop and the blue has a western feel. Both cards are fantastic.

Great cards, Sue, but definitely the tattered rose for me. When you say "carnival" it speaks to me of that huge fancy Wurlitzer trailer from way back that blasts out music.

I like both colours but I think the blue stands out more, I have put the new stamps on my wish list. I made a card using the masking tape and clear embossing powder with the Rolls Royce stamp from Creative Expressions which I was lucky to receive in your candy draw the card was a huge success thank you Sue for you tutorials xx Delyth HAPPY EASTER

Debbie Ravenhill said...

Morning Sue, I loved this card, the peacock one, when you made it on C&C. I did have a chuckle when you were trying to take off the backing paper! It is a striking card and works well with the gold. The swirl stamp is beautiful, and so universal. I do love both of the cards in both of the colour ways. Have a lovely day. Debbie R xx

sarah hyett said...

Hi Sue another stunning card, red is my favourite colour so I am always drawn to that colourway. The blue just seems to lack the warm feel that the red one does. Have a lovely Easter. X

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, Wow, Wow, Wow, I love both colourways, they look like two different cards at first glance, what a difference a change in colour gives. I must say I adore the gold embossing powder, it gives such a lush and warm feel to the cards, and the sentiment is something we should all abide by ha ha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

i like both colour ways but if i had to pick one off the shelve i would go for the reddy/pink one,maybe that's the girly side of me,or maybe because of the weather blue is too cold for me this morning lol reds seems to warm me up.

SusanP, Kent said...

Hi Sue,
Usually I'd choose blue over pink, but from these two beautiful cards I prefer the design in pink. The gold embossing seems more complimentary to the warmth of the overall colourway. The sentiment is an apt one for many of us, I think and I'll try to practise it today.

Hi Sue
Two stunningly beautiful cards I can't decide which I love the most - Sue that wasn't fair to ask!

I love all the embossing and the microbeading with the embossing under it such a good idea I'd never have thought of doing that.
The flowers are delightful and I love them as well as the bow.
Thank you for all your inspiration,

How to choose... If I was not allowed a tie result I think I would go for the rose colours, but only if my life depended on it LOL They are both stunning and who knows, if it was a hot and steamy day perhaps the cool blues would creep ahead! Maybe it's the weather influencing me!
Oh those dies are so lovely they are on my ever growing wish list!

Both are beautiful, ornate looking cards but I think I would go for the pink version. x

I like them both xx (I will never hang myself) and may I say what a fantastic result in view of the fact that you were 'winging' it xx Gail T xx

Lovely and really don't have a preference as to which colourway I like most, they both look so different, but then that is the thing with most spellie cards, you can change very little just the colour to make something very different.. xxx

Hi Sue - I like both colourways but am leaning more toward the blue one. Love those dies and stamps.

Well Sue it is hard to choose but as a lover of pink I think it has the edge. Thankyou for your blog, it has been very helpful with my journey as a crafter - it is inspirational! As someone who has only recently started blogging with my card making blog I can now appreciate what a lot of work goes into it.Many thanks.

Love both colour ways Sue, but must agree the first one is edging towards Can Can etc.
