You Mean The World To Me


Hi bloggers! I returned from Ally Pally later than I had expected and far more exhausted too from an incredible weekend!  If you will bear with me for another day, I will get caught up on the comment game winners on Tuesday and then the blog candy contest on Wednesday!  I'll tell you a bit more about the show on Tuesday also, but I am going to keep this post short and about the card for now (need to hit the hay as they say! LOL)
 I had the pleasure of making samples with quite a few beautiful dies and this one, Elegant Labels Four, was one of my favourites.  I probably picked it up too often, but it is just so.....elegant!   It looks great turned either direction, cut out, simply embossed or layered with other dies, what more could you ask for in a die!  I cut the two largest dies in the set to create this pretty frame in lavender.  I used the inside die again to cut an aperture in a piece of white card that was just slightly larger than my frame.  I glued my lavender frame atop my white aperture and added 3D mounting foam to the back.  I cut two of the Grateful Lattice background in white.  I turned them in opposite directions and overlapped them to create a unique pattern.  I glued them together then on top of a pretty piece of decorative paper in lavender tones.  I mounted the frame over my latticed background piece.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the oval from the Radiant Rectangle set.  I inked it very lightly with Dusty Concord and mounted it vertically across the centre of the frame.  I made a rose from lavender card and sugared it with Rock Candy Dry glitter.  I tied a messy bow out of  white seam binding and added the rose to the centre.  I finished the card with a wide double mat with my paved pearl technique as an accent.  There is a tutorial on this at the top of the blog if you want to see more.  Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

This card is so elegant and I think it would look stunning on any window sill. I don't have the lattice die but I have one that they brought out last year so I'll certainly be giving this card a go.

Another stunner Sue, especially as I have that Elegant 4 die. I only have the regular lattice, but I think I could sort of produce something similar. Sorry you are so tired, Ally Pally is a big show! Take it easy for a day or two, and perhaps you will soon bounce back.

Once again you come up with such great ideas for using the dies in different ways - love the way you have used the lattice.

You must be absolutely shattered after all you've been doing lately. Hope you get some rest now. Today's card is beautiful. Love the colours, the labels die,the lattice,the flower, the bow - in fact, everything!! You are so very clever.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

Morning Sue
The Lavender colour used today is so gentle and with white makes the card so calm and soothing - something you need at the moment after last week. I love the format and can just picture roses and clematis climbing up it. The more I see this lattice die the more I need it!!!

I'm so doing this one it's gorgeous. I have both of these die sets and they are my all time favourites (tho I do adore my chrismas tree and wish I could find a way of using it all year round lol) the grateful lattice is so easy to cut out and extend as well which is so useful. Hope you are able to relax a bit Sue, you've had a very demanding week.

Hi Sue, lovely to see you at Ally Pally on Saturday. I wasn't able to come and talk to you as every time I passed your stall it was about 10 deep all around you. I bought the lattice dye that you have used behind the labels. The off cuts I have used as feathers on an owl card I was making. So no waste !!!. Have a well deserved rest today. Janice x

Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on
the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked
while people think about worries that they plainly don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

Hi Sue,
Another stunner - love the colour combo. I must agree with you, I keep reaching out for my Elegant Labels 4, it's just such a beautiful die and so versatile (as they all are, but this one gives me more inspiration than others).
Well Sue, you have truly had a marathon week and I hope you'll be able to just flop (even if only for an hour or two) today. Had a look at C&C and IW but couldn't see a show for Tuesday - am intrigued now.
Don't overdo it, you have a long journey ahead of you (to Florida) - I bet you'll sleep all the way there.
Again, thanks for all your efforts and the blog etc etc.
Got your A4 folders on Saturday and shall play with them today - waiting for the bloody washing machine man to turn up, my new (4 days old!!)is on the blink with load inside, of course.
Hugs, Rose

Hello Sue, A beautiful card, clean and crisp. Elegant Labels Four is one of my favourite dies, new know I need the Grateful Lattice die. The rose is gorgeous and I got some Rock Candy Dry glitter last week, will be having a play later. So glad that you had a great time at AP, just sorry that I could not make it. Hope that you have had a good sleep, last week was some hard work, and manage to have a little rest today.

Really enjoyed Ally P on Saturday. I'm so chuffed with my haul of stash I bought off your Rubbernecker stand, so much cheaper than the stand I was going to buy from!!!

Hi Sue. I love, love, love this card !! As always another beautiful card !! The white and lilac look great together. The labels four looks lovely. I love your lattice background too. A very clever idea to inter link two lattice backgrounds together to create a new pattern. The sentiment is sweet and your paved pearl tecnique just finishes the card perfectly. Hope you get to take some time out to relax today. Lots of love Tres x x x

magpie said...

Gorgeous, gorgeous card and in my favourite colours too! Just stunning Sue. I'm not surprised you are shattered! You work and "play" so hard. You deserve a well earned rest...not just for a day, for at least a week or more and from what I gather you'll be getting that wish soon xx We truly appreciate all you do Sue, "thank you". You take care of yourself, we'll always be here! xx Love Karen xx

So pretty, beautiful card as always, labels four is the best and I missed out on the new die to the collection the first time on C&C but managed to get it and the stamp ordered this time, cant wait for them to arrive. Sadly I am too unwell to attend any of the craft shows its my dream to one day, save up and have a ball at one lol!! tfs

Hi Sue, a very sophisticated card this one, in one of my all time favourite colour schemes. Can understand why your so exhausted with the amount of effort and enthusiasm you put into all you works of art. Enjoy a well earned break!

so glad Ally Pally didnt disappoint, you must be shattered..... i love this card and the colours are gorgeous, especially the glittered rose, it looks like ice has settled on it, would be fabulous for a winter card.....

Susan White said...

Hope you are fully recovered after your exhausting weekend Sue? Another lovely card, and I really like the combo of lavender card with white.

Thanks, Susan

Lovely card.

Heather said...

Hello Sue

This is a really pretty card I just adore lilac or purple and white. Very spiritual colour, purple. Soothing.

It was a hectic week last week had grandchildren for three 14 hour days and then one came for a sleepover and to craft on Friday. I introduced her to the shaving foam technique and gilding wax, took to it like a duck to water and she created some amazing patterns and loved it!She was absolutely thrilled when she scraped the foam off the card she thought she had done something wrong! LOL!

This next Thursday to Sunday is definitely crafting for me! :)

I hope Ally Pally was good

Another fabulous card. I love these flowers, especially with the rock glitter finish. I like how you have layered two of the lattice dies offset, it fills in a little of the space between x
