Thinking Of You

Good morning all!  I always take a chance when I pick up my dark papers, but I just fell in love with this tiny rose pattern on the black background and yes, I had to see it micro beaded!  I have showcased it with my blush card and coconut white card too so it lightens it up a bit.  I started by micro beading the entire background piece.  Next I cut two of the Layered Scalloped Posy die by Heartfelt Creations in blush card.  I mounted them so they were radiating out from a centre strip of white card.  I used the Rye Grass Flourish by Heartfelt Creations all over the strip and white embossed it for interest.  I matted the strip on blush and black card.  Next I cut the Timeless Amour heart in both white card and the rose patterned paper from the background.  I embossed the white inner heart with the small polka dot patterned mask.  I tape the pieces of the heart back together using the centre from the white card and the edge from the patterned paper.  I mounted it on foam in the centre of the strip. I stamped my sentiment from JustRite Stamps and cut it out with the smallest heart in the set.  I inked it lightly with Spun Sugar Distress ink for a highlight and mounted it in the centre of my heart.  I tied a messy bow out of the Flesh coloured seam binding.  I made a black rose using the technique from the tutorial at the top of the blog and added it to the centre of my bow.  I finished my embellishment with two black crystal stick pins.  I added  black rhinestone swirls in the corners.  I matted my card with a blush coloured double mat and pierced the inner layer to complete my card.  Finished dimensions are 7" x 8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

I agree a dramatic design but lovely.

Rosie said...

What a lovely composition, by using the dies so differently.

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. Lovely, this card does look black and white, no blush , on my screen too but I love it. That rose backing paper is beautiful. Hope you are getting to rest and relax. We are finally enjoying some sunshine, wonder if it will last the whole bank holiday? Take care.

Mary Gallivan said...

Hi Sue,
A lovely card. I don't normally do hearts on cards but there's plenty of other shapes I could choose from.
I like to make A6 and 6" x 6" cards. I would love to see how you would make a card that is 6" x 6" when it is matted, layered and complete.
Any chance? :-)
Have a great Bank Holiday weekend.
Best wishes.
Mary x

Good morning Sue another lovely card today, as always. I wish I could be as inspired as you. I love looking at your cards every morning. Xx

Heather said...

Morning Sue

A contrast to yesterday however although not a lover as you know of the dark cards the background paper is beautiful and with the blush is exquisite.

I am thinking on reflection it is the black and white cards that I am not a lover of and if there is a lovely soft colour as here with the black then it makes a difference for me. I really like it.

kimberley said...

I'm like quite a few of the others-the blush is not showing up on my computer and neither is the pattern on the background card but I do like the design of the card,After a horrendous day weatherwise it will be interesting to see what today brings-at least it's not raining at the moment,take care,x.

What a beautiful format and colour scheme to match for today's gift.
I love both these dies and they always give their best. Unfortunately still not a crafting day for me today as the horrible task of food shopping gets in the way but decorating nearly finished - on the last lap - so my crafting is getting nearer.
Hope you are all rested now after a very very busy week and that the Birthday Girl is ready to start all over again!

I actually thought that this was a gatefold card at first and it would work well as a gatefold. I like the way you've offset the two semicircles, very effective and a great idea for trying out with other dies too.

I love it when I have the Die you're using.... then I don't become obsessed with owning them! (so sad)!

Hi Sue

Lovely card today. The blush also looks white on my computer. so glad that you are still doing cards in the older dies as it reminds us to use them. Love the papers. I also usually like to do either 6x6 or 5x7 cards, and they all look just as nice in these sizes. hope your not working to hard Sue. Enjoy the sunshine as it's drizzling here in cloudy Witney amongst the Cotswolds.

Dear Sue
Wow what a chic looking card love the blush,black and coconut white colour scheme. I don't often use black card but this shows how wonderful it can look.
Love the posy semicircle die cut card in blush and the beaded pins and bow made of blush seam binding and then the chic looking black rose setting off the card wonderfully. The heart dies make a lovely centrepiece for the card.
Love it.

Hello Sue and what a lovely day it is. Makes the spirits lift and the call to do the gardening very strong.

Beautiful as always, Sue! I love the ideas you spark for me when you remind me that our die cuts can be cut in half or otherwise cut apart to make something that looks different.

I also want to say how much I appreciate the way you put the materials you use in bold print so it's quick to scan the text and pick them out. So often I see something and say to myself, "What die was that?" You make it easy to answer that question.
