Every Day

Happy Sunday!  This is a card from some of the shows that I did in September.  I picked a peach coloured card accented with black as my colour theme.  I embossed the background with the Heart Lattice embossing folder for a delicate embossed background.  I wrapped some black seam binding around the opposite corners and matted it on black card.  Next I stamped the Lace Oval frame by Justrite using a black Archival ink pad on to peach card.  I used the Tattered Rose distress marker to give it some soft colour.  I used a Rusty Hinge to accent the centres a bit.  I cut out the centre with an oval die and stamped my sentiment from the Mix and Match sentiments and placed it behind the opening.  I used a bit of Tattered rose around the sentiment for a soft halo effect.  I cut two oval frames, one thicker one out of peach card and a thinner black frame and glued them over the aperture for my sentiment.  I cut a Spiral Flower 4 out of black felt and rolled it as an accent in the lower corner.  I finished it with a few pieces of the Bella Rose swirl cut in peach card.  A double pierced mat layer in peach finished the card off nicely.  Finished dimensions are 7" x 8 1/2" in size.

Now for the fun stuff, time to give prizes away for the Sunday Comment game.  We have two sets today.  For the first set, the winners are:
weefortune!!!
Sandra M!!!
Rosie!!!

For the extra qualifying post of Wed. Nov. 20th, the winners are:
Cinders61!!!
sonja_w!!!
Lydia Jordan!!!

Congratulations to all!  Please email me at americansue1@gmail.com to confirm your address and claim your prize.

I also wanted to let you know that Julia Watts will be on C & C today at noon for Toolshed with Nigel and then a later show at 5pm with Dawn.  She has some new Heartfelt Creations, the Sweet Juliet Collection and the Floral Key collection.  Don't forget to tune in to see some outstanding demos!  All for now, Sue x

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Thank you for such a beautiful and very regal gift today.
The colour scheme is so gentle even though black is part of it and the format is one of those which really is on the 'less is more' scale. Today's gift is also a very versatile one as it can be used for any occasion and even for those pesky makes in our lives if we took away the flower.
Congratulations to all the very very lucky winners.

Hi Sue,
Wasn't to sure about this card until I read what colours had been used. The peach doesn't look peach on my screen so that made a huge difference. Love the design so just imagined it was peach and black.

CraftyJo said...

I could do with buying that stamp - I have 3 sisters (though I'd only use that sentiment for one of them ;) )- the whole card is gorgeous.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Todays card is sooo beautiful !! I really love the look of this background stamp. I have your heart lattice background folder. I just love it !! Unfortunately the peach looks like cream on my screen so I will just have to imagine what peach and black look like together. Wraping black seam binding around both corners of the card is a great idea. I love the sentiment and I really love your flower and beautiful swirls to.
I watched your video yesterday and it was wonderful !! The card you made was gorgeous and I will definately be trying out gilding flake edges and then using the sea garden folder over the top. Sorry I did not get the time to comment yesterday. I will be recording Julia's shows today.
Congrats to all the winners. Happy crafting every one Love Tres x x x

Good evening Sue
I love the lace oval frame but have to admit I really don't like the colour of the base card. I'm not a peach/apricot gal, maybe it's the photo emphasizing it, as in the detailed photos it's a much softer colour.
