Happy Birthday Wishes

Good Sunday Morning all!  Happy Birthday Wishes to you today as surely it must be someone's birthday today, do tell!  While I wouldn't say this is your usual birthday card fare,  I had the phrase to use from my last set of shows and these dies to use and it fit.  This card could easily be used for any number of sentiments, but I wouldn't mind it for my birthday at all, how 'bout you?  I started by cutting the Branching Out die in a dark taupe coloured card.  I matted it with light taupe and then a thin dark taupe mat.  To sit on top of that layer, I stamped the Filigree Leaves background by Justrite on  light taupe card using a clear Perfect Medium for a watermark effect.  I heat set it and rubbed over it with an anti static pad too remove any moisture left.  Then I used the same stamp inked with our Flake and Glitter glue.  I stamped it over the top but offset it so you would be able to see the watermark coming through.  I glittered it with Periwinkle polished silk glitter for a pop of colour.  I stamped my sentiment from the Grand Sentiment set by Justrite stamps using a coffee archival ink pad.  I cut it out with the Gold Facet dies and inked through the die with Antique Linen distress ink  (although the pic looks much darker).  I cut a second die and offset it behind my sentiment, mounting them both in the middle of my card.  I tied a bow with natural jute and added a blue button as an accent.  I decided the edges needed something fun so I used the Choco Brown PVA glue to do my paved pearl technique all the way around the edges.  The technique is in the tutorial section at the top of the blog if you would like to see more detail.  Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8 1/4" in size.

Just one set of winners this week for the Comment game.  Those winners are:

Jacqui oakes-alcock!!!
camelot 67!!!
Sonja W!!!

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

Just a quick reminder that Julia Watts will be on the toolshed today at noon and then again at 5pm.  She has one of our new demonstrators, Nikki Payne, on board with her as well, so please tune in to see all their fab demos!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. I love it! This is a bit of a change for you but it is wonderful, especially for the ladies that don't like flowers and bows! Great colours and that periwinkle glitter just makes it pop, fabulous. Congrats to the winners and I will hopefully be watching Julia and Nikki. Take care.

A great different look today, Sue, sort of krafty/vintagey. Haven't seen the paved pearls for a while and do like the effect with the darker colour.
Well won to the winners!

Hi Sue,wasn't too sure about the colouring of this one till I had a look in the close ups then decided not bad. Love the designs too. xx

tracy w said...

Hi sue
Stunning birthday card love the colour combo thank you Tracy w x

TDQ Karen said...

Morning Sue, was not too sure about this but it grows on you. I think it may be because it reminds me of animal print, which is not really my thing usually

Maryann Laursen said...

Another beautiful card here Sue, and just as wonderful as usual, gorgeous work.
Big congrats to the lucky winners here today, hope you´ll all enjoy your prizes, when they arrives. And a wonderful week ahead now to everybody around here, hope you all have loads of fun.

Jacqui oakes-alcock said...

This is a really great card, all the different textures and layers float my boat.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

MORNING SUE
I just know that I'm going to be in the minority of Wilsonettes but today's gift is not my taste. I think if it had been a little lighter or colours contrasting perhaps I would feel different.
Sorry - there are very few gifts from you Sue that don't hit the button but unfortunately for me this is one.
Congratfulations to today's winner.

Debby Berry said...

Good morning Sue,
I rather like this card it is fun and fancy. Nice job.

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
Well, I would love to receive it for my birthday as well. What a lovely background you've created. I'm not sure whether the die (branching out) appeals to me, it certainly didn't when they got it on telly. However, on your card it's very effective.
And of course, LOVE the glue dots.
Have a good Sunday
Hugs, Rose

Nanna Tina said...

Hi Sue
Very different from what we have had but still a lovely birthday card, have yet to have a go at the pva glue dots.

Hi Sue - like the card but not sure about today's colours. Would love to get the card though if it was my birthday or not!

Sheila - Ginger said...

Morning Sue,
At first glance I loved the card but not the colour but as I read on you said you used taupe colour card,,,,,,it's showing mustard on my PC but further down in the close ups the colours are taupes and then I loved it.
Congratulations to the winners.

Love Sheila xx

sonja_w said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you for picking me as a winner, what a fab start to the day. Not 100% about today's card, I love the periwinkle glitter background and sentiment but not sure about the brown pearls and overall effect, maybe a bit too busy for me. But thanks for sharing and have a great Sunday. Xx

Craftysusan said...

Hi Sue. I like the design of this card but I am afraid the colours used aren't to my taste. I love softer girly colours like lilac, pink and of course the white on white cards are stunning. Still it wouldn't do if we all liked the same things would it. Take care xx

Joanne K said...

Hi Sue, a lovely card today. Unusual colour combination but I really like it. Well done to the winners. Kind regards Joanne K x

I'm a bit undecided on this card perhaps my phone is making them appear too dark I love the paved pearl and have used it on numerous occasions & It's a technique I can do Hooray! Congrats winners All ready to watch Tool shed

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue,
Todays card makes me have cheetahs and an oasis in the Sahara Desert leaping right through my imagination this morning.
Sorry Sue, too busy for me as making the eyes burl. I look at your beautiful drop pearls and so wish they would behave like that for me.
Well done to today's winners and enjoy your early Christmas prezzie.
Love and crafty hugs

Disco Queen said...

Super card Sue. I love the branching out die & this is the perfect colour scheme for it.

Susan White said...

Really like this Sue - without the glitter, and maybe blue embossing with a denim colour it would make a fabulous man's birthday card too!

Congrats to the winners. Susan

Margaret said...

Good morning Sue
Very different but lovely all the same, don't know why but make me think of summer must be the warm colours!
Well done to the lucky winners.

alimecca said...

Hi Sue
Overall I do like the card,but not sure about the dark paved pearl border - for me it's just too dark. However, having said that, I would be very glad to receive it on my birthday, which unfortunately is not until May!

nannapat said...

Lovely design Sue but I think I would use a different coloured card for my taste. Congrats to all the winners - hope you all enjoy Julia's shows today. Pat x

Good morning Sue, I love this card, the idea of offsetting the watermark technique is great and one that I will certainly have a go at. Thank you for the wonderful ideas. x

Donna Jones said...

Hi Sue,
I was watching the Sky Jaguar appeal advert as your page loaded and it felt like I was transported to the rainforest, the paved pearls look like animal fur with the contrasting colours then with the branch die cut and stamped leaf bringing in the foliage.
Great card, one I would be happy to receive had it been my birthday.

Sam Smithard said...

Morning Sue,
Well, I so wish it was my "Birthday" as I really Love this Card, you have used so many techniques to achieve this one.
I wondered where the "Paved Pearls" had gone as we hadn't seen them for a while, and they look great!
I love the Colours you have decided to use for your Card today, using the Filigree Branch, the Watermark which I'm really loving seeing at the moment it really looks great on your work, then getting your stamp ready once more, with your Flake and Glitter Glue, and just positioning it to one side then adding the Stunning "Periwinkle Polished Silk Glitter" which is just so pretty, I Love your Card today, it's Truly Stunning, I so enjoy seeing you use so many different Ideas and ways on your Cards, it's good to see your Cards in different ways, as not every one likes the same and you offer so much more! congratulations to the Winners, I'm so looking forward to watching Julia and Nikki Payne, I really like Nikki's work I'm pleased she's joined Creative Expression, so I'll be watching but in the words of "Lancashire Steph" I'm so looking forward to watching our "Leader Sue" Love and hugs from Sam x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes. This is such a different example of your talent Sue, and I like it I must say. Very appropriate for late summer birthday's and other celebrations. Love the glitter, must get up a collection of those in the New Year. Had a near disaster with my diamond sprinkles late yesterday afternoon - (ohhh nooo, here comes waffle you are thinking with head in hands) I had put flake n flitter glue on half my card, and as I have no feeling in my index fingers I keep a cheap little bin by me for when I open 'pots of smiles' as I call them :) good job too as the OPEN pot slipped right through my fingers, and - in that slow motion mode, ended up in the bin, but someone was watching over me as.it landed right way up ! Good job as craft shop closed 'till Tuesday and too cold for me to leave the house. Talk about palpations, loardie lordie !

So, you lucky winners, did you use my Wednesday Wish letter ? Well STOP IT ! MY idea, so MY card :) *stamping feet in a diva style tantrum and picking up teddy* enjoy your gifr and many congratulations to ALL 3 of you xx

All ready to record Julia today, and wishing Nikki luck, although Lady Luck has already shone down on her as she works for the best company EVER.

Sunday snuggles to all you lady Wilsonettes, have a happy Sunday xx

Maggie said...

Hello Sue. This is a different card to our usual morning treats. I really like the striking colour combination and love the sentiment. You are a whizz with those faux pearls. xx Maggie (better without a bow)

Tres said...

Hi Sue. This is an unusual card today for you. I have to be honest and say I am not sure it is really my sort of card. I am not that keen on the colours you have used as they seem a bit dark. I do love the periwinkle glitter part and I like the birthday sentiment. I think it may be the branching out die that I don't really like. I was not very keen on it when it was launched on c+c. I do like your paved pearl technique but I don't think it goes with the branching out die. Sorry Sue. (Just personal opinion.) I must get my hands on those lovely birthday sentiments from justrite. I have set to record Julia's shows today. I can't wait to see you to on tv soon !!
Congrats to the winners. Lots of love Tres x x x

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, it's a shame my birthday was last month because I would have loved a card like this. I would have said the colours were right out of my comfort zone but the way you have put them together makes a most unusual but beautiful card.
I will be watching the tool shed today but really looking forward to you coming back.
Congratulations to today's winners.

Hi Sue, what an interesting card, not a colour combination that immediately comes to mind but I'm sure like most cards it looks better in real life particularly the twinkling blue. Not sure about the paved dots aspect but that's just me. Off to see Julia now, love from Jackie D

yorkielass said...

Hello Sue, a very different card from you today, I like it, love the textures and layers, the periwinkle blue and button are scrummy. Congratulations to the lucky winners. Will be watching Julia at noon and can't wait to see you next Sunday.

Hi Sue,
Congratulations to today's winners.

Not sure about today's card! Sorry ! However as usual learned lots from it and would happily copy the techniques used, maybe in different colours etc.

Oh Lancashire Steph, I did smile at your glitter moment! I had one myself recently - nothing to do with my fingers - just stupidity in my case!! Couldnt get top off glitter pot so opened cutlery drawer to use tip of a knife as lever- yes you've guessed it - silver glitter all over cutlery !

Love to all,

Love todays card and although different to your usual cards I think it is amazing.Especially love the periwinkle glitter shimmering through.Not everyone likes bows and flowers so this would be great for them.

Hi Sue

This is a really unusual colour style and I'm sitting on the fence on this one. perhaps it will grow on me. I really must go and have a look at the gold facet dies. they look really lovely. Congratulations to all the winners.

This is such a different card to what you normally do Sue but a nice one anyway. It´s good to see the pebbles of cosmic glue back! The glitter is also lovely as a background feature.

The branch die is lovely and so are the colours that you have used together. Thank you Sue! Congratulations to the winners! Wonderful! Enjoy your prizes xx Love Karen xx
