Miss You

 Hi bloggers!  Purple, black and white make up the colours for today's card.  I started with the white background and did a white on white embossing using the Lace Vintage Labels three stamps from Justrite Stamps for this.  I like how it gives a bit of detail but doesn't take the focus away from the main event so to speak.  I cut an Elegant Labels four die out of black card and embossed it together with the purple card to form a backing frame for it.  Next I stamped the larger stamp in the Lace Vintage set in clear and black embossed it.  I cut it out with the matching Vintage Labels three dies to create a frame.  I stamped my sentiment on purple card and cut it out with the oval from from Resplendent rectangle set.  I used some white frilly edged ribbon and threaded it across and under my sentiment.  I tucked the edges of the oval under so it held my ribbon in place.  I tied a double bow with it and added it at the side of my card with a lavender Dazzler and black stick pins as embellishments.  I finished the card with a double white mat and white PVA glue dots all the way around the edge.  Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

GM Sue - Elegant Labels 4 - love it and also really liking the black on black embossing. Managed to catch up with the recordings of your Sunday shows yday but the stupid DVD thing only recorded the first hour - so not happy! Will have to diligently read your blog to try and see what I missed - Love the Becca dies and would love to see you both on C&C together - what a combo that would be!! I would love to get one of her bow makers but don't think they are available in the UK unless you know something I dont perhaps?.. if so, do tell!

I will probably be in the minority today but today's gift isn't hitting the spot with me.
I think it's the colours as the format looks beautiful - will have to try a different colour scheme.

Good morning Sue,

Maggie said...

Hello Sue. Somehow this card seems to want to do a cancan! Think it's the purple, lace and ribbon that does it. Very chic. Will come and say hello if you are at Ally Pally. xx

Marion said...

Hi Sue you no what im going to say ,would prefer it without the big bow ,i no lots of people like them but i think they take over the card sorry.

Lacelady said...

Oooh, an almost buckle card with ribbon - you never cease to amaze me with your inventiveness. Very pretty card!

Pat S Witney said...

Hi Sue

love today's card and the colour combination. I think the white embossing loses itself in this card as it's quite well covered over.

lydia jordan said...

Morning Sue,
I'm with Marion on the bow front have said it before I like smaller bows, and I must admit that this card just not do it for me I think the black centre piece is a bit overpowering. Sorry Sue.

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. Lovely card using purple, one of my favourite colours. I am not sure about there being too much black, keep looking at it but not sure. The problem is that all cards look so different "in the flesh" as it were that pics just don't do them justice. And that is ALL pics, not just yours Sue :)Take care.

Sandy G said...

Hi Sue
Thank you for sharing your card with us. As always it is beautifully made but it doesn't appeal to me. I think maybe the black is too overpowering. Love the pretty lilac dazzler.

Striking colours and gorgeous design Sue. A really elegant card. Pat x

Jean Johnston said...

The colours on my screen are very strange and there is an odd shadow round the white centre piece so I am sure I am not seeing this to best effect. First time I have not really liked one of your cards Sue.

Barbara said...

I have just received my card that I won from the Tool Shed show on Sunday on C&C. It is absolutely beautiful, its the one with the Lacy Tiers cut in acetate and glittered on the reverse. Your cards are even better in real life if that's possible Sue! My husband thought it was gorgeous and he is extremely picky as an artist himself! Can I ask Sue how do you get your layers so perfect? I have to get the Lacy Tiers dies now!!!!

magpie said...

Gorgeous card Sue. The dies my husband surprised me with included the A2 Filagree Delight and Labels Thirty so I could do a bit of playing there! Love all the colours, they go so well together. Whoo hoo! I've won one of your beautiful cards! Wow! Wonderful! It seems like the four leaf clover has been working it's magic! It is also be a fantastic pre-wedding anniversary (23rd) present that, like everybody else, so longs to win from you. It will certainly take pride and place here at home. Thank you everybody for your lovely congratulations wishes. They were lovely to see! Thank you Sue, it's so made my day/month/year/lifetime! Good luck to all of you in your dream to win a card also. Never give up! Sue, have a wonderful time at Ally Pally and enjoy meeting and putting faces to some of your merry army of followers! xx Love Karen xx

Paper Junkie said...

Love the colours of this one Sue - and I have the dies (but sadly not the stamps)! X

Pearl said...

This card is fantastic Sue and uses all of the dies that I love. The Elegant Labels four die I especialy like and fits in well with the size of card that I like to create. Although there are only 3 dies in the set, each die makes an impact on a card, whether used singly or in combination. The smaller one is great for using as a ribbon buckle. The black card and embossing is magnificent and makes such a dramatic impact. The ribbon is fab and now that I have some myself, I can see why you love it so much too.

Craftihappiness to you Sue, love from Pearl

Hi Sue,
I love seeing your cards each day and I have saved a huge file of them!!
I'm rather concerned about you though! I hope you aren't feeling sad about anything as there has been so much black used in recent cards I just hope it isn't a reflection of how you are feeling.
kind regards, Janet (Kent)
