Have A Fabulous Day

 Hello my friends!  Custard and soft gold teemed up with Decorative Labels One and matching JustRite stamps for today's card.  I did add in a much loved piece of decorative paper (origin unknown) to help achieve the finished sample but other than that it is pretty much straight forward.  I used the Bracket Border die to cut a decorative edge into my background paper.  I added some custard coloured card underneath to help show off the pretty lattice pattern of that die.  I cut a large Decorative Labels One in soft gold card as the back drop for my focal element.  I stamped the Celebration Labels One stamp and embossed it in gold.  I cut it out with a Scalloped Labels One die.  I stamped my sentiment (Justrite) and cut it out with a smaller die in the Decorative Labels One set.  I stacked and layered all the die cuts to form my focal element.  I made a rose out of the custard card and "sugared" it  with Diamond Sprinkles.  I added some gold tulle (from my stash) and some natural jute twine and seated my flower on top.  I changed my stick pins to gold by rubbing them on a clear Perfect Medium pad and sprinkling them with gold embossing powder and heating. (Be sure to put the ends into a foam mat before heating the ends.  You do not want to be holding the pin part as it will get very hot!).  I added some flatback pearls to the corners and a double pierced mat out of the soft gold card to finish a really easy card.  What a nice way to wish someone a fabulous day, don't you think!  Finished dimensions are 7" x 8" in size.
I wanted to let everyone know that The Papeterie has begun to ship out the DVD of the demo day in July.  I am told they are painstakingly calling everyone that has reserved a copy to get their details, so please be patient.  If you haven't ordered your copy, it isn't too late to do so by just contacting The Papeterie in Aberdeen.  The DVD is a recorded version of the 20 demo cards that I did on the day for their charity auction.  Just so that you are aware, it isn't a slick multi camera filmed version, it was a single static camera that was set up and unmanned.  That being said, the cost is £6 and the proceeds go to a great charity they support called Archway.  I haven't actually seen the DVD yet (it is just painful for me to watch myself, so I decided I would pass!), but I believe that some have already been received by some of the blog followers so maybe there will be some feedback in case you are interested.  All for now, Sue x

A truly beautiful gift for today Sue. The colours are so gentle and understated but really make the card elegant.
A simple format for us to follow too and I cannot see anyone not feeling honored to receive a card like this.
I love the large square dies and am using these as the background for my C.cards this year.
Off to market this morning looking for anything crafty.

An absolutely stunning card Sue. Love everything about it. The papeterie dvd is great - no interruptions and 20 brilliant demonstrations. You worked so hard Sue and even though the camera is static it is still great to watch all your demos and pick up lots of tips. £6 for 2 dvds is a great price, especially as the money goes to charity.

Good morning Sue,
It's absolutely gorgeous - I just love everything about it.
You are super-duper talented.
Can't wait for the DVD to arrive, am a bit bemused as to why the Papeterie are phoning people - I gave them all the details when I ordered and I'm sure everyone else did, too.
Anyway, I'm set up for the day now after seeing this lovely card.
Thank you Sue and have a brilliant weekend.

Good morning Sue,
I think this card would make a lovely Golden Wedding card. I really like how you get the rose with the crushed sugar looking topping on it. Wonder if you can dip dye just the rose edges so that it has the ombre sort of a look. Anyway another winner today,
Love and crafty hugs

Hi Sue

Hell Sue, what a cracking card today. Either you got out of the bed the wrong side , or it was a spelling mistake. I would say it's the latter. Made me laugh to hear such language from a lovely lady. Your card today is really beautiful, yet again today it has everything I like in a card with the embellishments. :-)

Kind regards

CraftyJo said...

I can appreciate all the work involved in this card - love the centre bit with the Labels One but got to say the rest of it just doesn't 'do it' for me today. I know I'm in the minority but trust you don't mind me saying :) Even if I don't particularly 'love' a card I always, always find some part of it that I *do* like and can use. Thanks for the inspiration.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. What a beautiful card today !! I really love your gold and custard colour combo. Would never have thought of putting those two colours together but they look great. I have all those label one dies. I just need to get the matching stamps now and the bracket border dies. The gold embossing is lovely. Your flower is great too. Another elegant, classy looking card Sue. Lots of love Tres x x x

Snuffy Snoo said...

Hi Sue, another stunning card today!!! I just adore those roses, but I have tried so many times and mine do not even closely resemble yours. Mine have all ended up in the bin, none were worthy of adorning a card....it's so frustrating because I love them so much. I have printed off the tutorial aswell. There appears to be no hope for some people. Is there a particular flower die that you would recommend for these? The tutorial uses a 6 petal...and none of mine (and I have a few have 6 petals) I don't know if that's why or if I'm just looking for excuses. Love Sam xxx

This is a brilliant and beautiful celebration card, I love the patterned paper against the custard and soft gold, it all tones in beautifully.
I really like the focal sentiment die cut in various labels one dies, and stamped in labels one and embossed in the beautiful gold.
The sugared rose is beautiful and the recoloured stick pins really pretty too. I love the way you paper prick around the card. I need to practice it more.
