Best Wishes

 Hello my crafty friends!  I have really wanted to share this card with you, but not until the first video went live.  Since that was last week, I thought you might want to see another card that uses the same flower technique, but with a deeper rust coloured ribbon.  Isn't it gorgeous!  This is one of the new satin ribbons that Creative Expressions is carrying (Sam Poole has it in stock I know if you are looking).  To begin, I stamped the Dotted Fronds background by Justrite.  To do this, I dabbed the flake and glitter glue on it using a piece of cut 'n dry foam.  I stamped it quickly onto black card and set the card aside.  I cleaned my stamp thoroughly first to remove any of the remaining glue residue.  I used the Red Blaze gilding flakes and covered my stamped image.  I use a piece of Rubit Scrubit pad to move the flakes over the image, then I refine it by rubbing lightly in a circular motion.  This removes any excess flake so that the detail can be clearly seen.  I used the Grand Rectangles to cut a frame and then added in an additional die during the embossing phase for some added detail to it.  I mounted the frame on foam over my background.  I cut the rust satin ribbon down the centre and made two flowers following the technique on the October 22nd post video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pu4JS2HlCb4  They look like rich autumn Chrysanthemums, don't they?  I finished my flowers with some black tulle and a Bella Rose swirl cut from black card.  I stamped my sentiment and embossed it in gold, cut it into a strip and matted it with black.  I cut the ends into a fork and mounted the end under my flowers then across the card, ending on top of the frame.  I finished the card with a double white mat with my signature piercing.  Finished dimensions are 6" x 8" in size.  Another video for you tomorrow!  All for now, Sue x

Love this card, Sue, perfect for autumn birthdays. Flowers just as you say, a rich autumn chrysanthemum. Bought the Bella Rose set after seeing you use the swirl so much - use it all the time, it's the best twirly swirl of all!!

What a fantastic way to start the day. Today's gift is something really special. The colouring is so opulent and gorgeous. The format so simple but yet makes the most fantastic statement.

Good morning Sue,
I love the new ribbon technique flowers as they do look like the curly pompom chrysanthemums and in the rust coloured ribbon they are the perfect autumn colour with the beautiful gilded autumn coloured flakes.(I love autumn because of the beautiful colours). The satin ribbon:- is it single sided so that it crinkles under heat, please?
Different type of card yet again , thank you Sue for your continuing inspiration.
Love and crafty hugs

Hi Sue - hope everyone is safe - the storm reached us this morning and the winds were horrendous but they have now subsided and the sun is out!!
Love your card today Sue and the colours are beautiful. I tried the flake and glitter method last week but I think I left the stamp on the paper too long and it stuck to the card. I notice on your blog you said do it quickly, so I am going to try it again today as I do love the results. Best wishes

I just love the backround on this beautiful card - I can't believe the detail in it. I still have to try the flake & glitter glue, for some reason I'm nervous about it! I'm glad you were so kind to show us how to make those fabulous flowers Sue - they are another 'must try' to add to my list
unfortunately in bed with MS at minute, but hopefully up soon and back into my craft room.

Hi Sue

Beautiful card, the flowers are amazing I will be going to Sam Poole for the ribbon. I'm lucky enough to have the stamp for the background, so will give this card a go. :-)

Luckily we tied everything down in the garden yesterday. I sat up until the storm started at about 1.30am doing my daughters wedding invites. After about 20 minutes we lost our electric, and it has only just come on now, I'm cold and was terribly bored not being able to go on line or watch TV, but did enjoy making tea on a camping stove. Happy days. Hope you are all well and weathered the storm.

Kind regards :-)
