Sneak Peek / Fabulous Friend

 Hi bloggers!  I selected this card to show today as it showcases one of the new dies, my new line of "stamps to die for" which are on the show and one of my new embossing folders, plus I really liked the way it came out!  I cut the bottom edge of my soft gold card using two of the scalloped border dies.  Aren't they so pretty!  I don't think that these have been on any of the shows since they were released.  Next I embossed the soft gold card using my folder called "Tapestry." I embossed it while the dies were still in place by keeping the folder open, covering it with my tan mat, adding three sheets of card and the raspberry plate.   Once embossed, I wanted to give it the look of old world metal so I used the gilding wax in an assortment of colours, enchanted gold, patina and copper.  I used Black Soot over the top direct from the pad to distress it.  I cut a white piece using one of the scallop border cutting edges and taping the two pieces together.  I cut a longer piece of black card so it was just peeking out the bottom of the card.  Next I cut a frame out of black card using the two largest sizes of the Opulent Ovals.  I stamped the Vine Scroll stamp using a clear perfect medium pad and heat embossed with gold powder.  I cut it out with the matching Labels 30 dies and mounted it over my stamped sentiment with 3D foam pieces.  I made a rose out of the soft gold card and sugared it with Rock Candy Dry Glitter.  I mounted it atop a white messy bow and a black jute accent.  I finished it with two black crystal stick pins.  I added some flatback pearls to the focal element and the bottom scallop, pierced the edges to complete my card.  I hope you like it!  There are a bunch of new items on the shows, including my new embossing folders and "stamps to die for," but please don't wait if you like them as I was hoping to get a bit more stock than there is.  If they do sell out, I will be sure to put them back on further shows so don't worry!  There are six new folders in all and they are quite different, so there is a real variety of things you can do with them and looks you can achieve.    Don't miss the first demo in the 9pm hour as I hope to show you something really fun you can do with them right off the bat!  Finished dimensions are 7" x 8" in size.

   The charity auction closed last night and I was incredibly thrilled with the results.  I do plan on telling you how much money was raised but I thought it would be fun to see what your guess is.  I auctioned off 15 cards in total, the amount was not a rounded amount, it ended in pence, so take a guess.  The person who comes the closest without going over will win a prize (I love giving stuff away, so this is just an excuse for me! LOL) All guesses must include a pence amount to them (for example, 150.43, not just 150.00) that way there isn't quite the likelihood of having a bunch of the same guesses.  Just leave your guess in your comment.  I won't be able to announce the winner until next week, however.  That brings me to my second item that needs to be mentioned.  This week, I do the POTD on Tuesday evening and all day Wednesday, then the next day I leave for Ally Pally in London to setup and do the show there and I won't be back home until Sunday evening.  The weekly comment game winners will not be announced until Monday the 15th.  I have done all the blog posts for the week so it is just up to Blogger to get them up as scheduled.  I will not have internet access after Thursday until I return.  Any emails will not be answered until Monday, sorry about that.  Don't forget to tune in tonight at 9 pm and 11pm (if you are a night owl).  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue, I don't often comment, i look in every day though. I think it is great that your auction has gone so well and I think the ladies that have left amounts they think you have made are way out. Your cards are stunning and I believe there has been a bit of a bidding war going on, I might be wrong! But I feel you will have rised nearer £1976.61

WillsNan said...

Hi Sue
What a stunning card! I've been on the IW website to see what's coming up tonight and the only thing without images is your A4 embossing folders - I'll just have to keep checking back won't I. My next dilemma is 'Do I spend my pennies on IW or do I come to Ally Pally and empty my bank account there - decisions, decisions!' I'm sure some things from tonight's shows will jump into my basket. After all, it would be rude not. I so admire you for the charity auction and the demo day you've planned and I know you will raise a lot of money. My guess is £1578.17 but I hope I am way out and you actually raised much more. Good luck for tonight and tomorrow and I may see you at Ally Pally xx

GA Sue - I've been following your blog for over a year, every day and today you got me! I logged in at just after 6, a bit blurry eyed and I saw your think of a number and I couldn't for the life of me! So I thought I'll go out and do what I had to do today and think about it and log in again when I get home - but I am none the wiser! I 've looked at others guesses which range from several hundred to in the thousands so I am stabbing in the dark to say the least! so here's my guess - £423.37

I will be watching at 9 but will record the 11pm show as I am an early bird (up at 5 most days)so don't do late nights.

Love the card today - the embossed background is lovely - must try using the guilding wax like this. Can't wait to see all your fab demos tomorrow - will be watching all day. Hope shows go really well.

You are such a terror! Getting us all guessing and very excited about the shows this evening. Just wish it wasn't all quite so expensive. Never mind we can't take it with us and a card like this brings real joy to the recipient. Have a great time over the next 24 hours. Now for the guess - how about £389.42. xx

SusanP, Kent said...

Hi Sue,
Love this card featuring several of your new products. The scalloped border is gorgeous as is the tapestry folder and I've loved the opulant ovals since they first appeared. Gold with black was a great colour choice for this card.
I've checked out Ideal World to see what's on offer tonight. There's so much there - how IS a girl to choose? Looks like the my flexible friend will be getting a workout!
My guess for the auction total is £727.99.
