So Happy

Good morning all!  I thought I would give you a break from the Christmas cards today (maybe even tomorrow!), but it will be a bit of a mix up from here on in til the end of the year as I have loads of them!  Today's offering is from my previous set of shows and has a lovely technique that I enjoyed demoing at Ally Pally recently as well. I started with a piece of coconut white card covered with a sticky adhesive sheet.  Randomly I sprinkled our polished silk glitter over it using the Rose copper, sea green and hunter green colours.  I burnished it with my finger into the sticky adhesive sheet and that is important to do to get the glitter adhered well and made smooth.  Tap off any excess.  I inked my Swirly Leaf background with a black archival ink pad and stamped my image on to the glittered piece.  This glitter is brilliant as it is so smooth, you can stamp images on it.  I wanted to see what it would look like if I layered it again, so I covered the piece with another sticky sheet and poured clear micro beads over it.  In person, it has a sort of holographic look to it so I have decided to call this my "holographic technique" for future use.  I stamped  a piece of white card with one of the Mix 'n Match sentiments from JustRite designed by Becca Feeken using a black archival ink pad.  Once dry, I embossed the piece with my Heart Lattice embossing folder for texture.  I attached my beaded holographic piece to the upper side.  I cut  a Scalloped Border Two out of black card, using an insert and two cutting ridges.  I cut a white border slightly larger using just the two cutting edges. I glued the black border to it  and embossed the two pieces together.  I added it with mounting foam across my card, hiding the bottom the beaded piece.  I used the dusty rose felt to cut a Spiral flower four and rolled and glued it into place, adding a black pearl to the centre.  I added it to the side of my card atop a messy bow tied out of black seam binding and black jute bow.  I finished the card by adding flatback pearls to all the junctions in the embossed background and a double pierced white mat.  Finished dimensions are 7" x 8 1/4" in size.

morning Sue from Nievre - Burgundy.
Am so pleased to have my daily dose of Sue Wilson after my two day absence.
A beautiful gift to start the week with a new technique which looks wonderful. Will definitely have to give this one a go. Another must give it a go is using your felt for flowers I keep promising myself this but still haven't got around to doing it.
Congratulations to all winners this week-end.

Todays card is lovely. The composition is perfect, adding texture with decorative edges - it's something I aiways struggle with. I love the mixture of silk glitters and I'm astonished that you can stamp onto them - I watched yesterday in amazement! By the way, the weekend shows where fabulous, I was glued to the screen and I'm already looking forward to next weekend.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW !! Such a beautiful card for today. I love it all !! Your heart lattice background looks great. I love the idea of being able to put gems or pearls on the intersections of the design. Your holographic glitter technique looks wonderful, very effective. I must give this a try. The border dies look lovely. My other half has ordered me some of the original borders and insert dies as I wanted to start experimenting with borders and achieving lots of different looks by mixing and matching them. (for my birthday.) Love the sentiments you have used and what a gorgeous felt flower !!
Thankyou so much for working so hard to bring us such fantastic shows and demos over the weekend. It was a shame about the toolshed show but other than that it was very enjoyable. ( apart from leonine who talked so much that I think we all missed out on some extra demos. ) Your cards were superb Sue. As always create and craft don't realise what a hugely popular and extremely talented lady you are. I wish you could just have your own tv show instead !! I cannot wait to see toolshed next weekend. I bought to much stuff this weekend and my other half says I must sit on my hands while watching your shows next week !! Having exhausted my birthday wish list, the polished silk glitters are now on my christmas wish list !! lots of love Tres x x x

Hi Sue

So late writing a comment tonight as we have had a power most of the day.That's what you get for living in the country.

Your card today is gorgeous. I love everything about it. Lucky I have everything you have used in my workroom,so I think I will make this one tonight as I am waiting to hear from my son to say he is boarding his plane at L A to come home after a tour in America. I can't wait.

Kind regards :-)

I absolutely adore this card!
And I so enjoyed watching you on Create and Craft on my computer from my holiday in Torshavn.
I do hope that I can remember your technics :)
By the way, someone mentioned your DVD....? Have you made one? I didn't know. Is it about card making as we have seen from you on C&C? Where do you sell it?

Sue I love this technique. I watched you demo this technique at the weekend on Create and Craft. I could watch you all day long...
Thank you for all the inspiration. Libby
