Thinking Of You

 Good Sunday morning crafters!  Only a few more sleeps until Christmas so I hope you are ready!  Slowly but surely I am getting there, just need to finish up all the wrapping today!  Today's card is a little aqua and white number using the stamps and dies from last Sunday's show.  I started by stamping the Lavish Corner Background on to vellum with a clear Perfect Medium pad.  I heat embossed it with white detail powder.  I glued the corners to a piece of aqua card with the embossing on the inside (it shows through the vellum but has a softer look that way).  Next I used the new Vintage Labels Six die from Justrite Stamps to cut an aperture in the middle of it.  I really liked the aperture as it had those interesting looking pieces cut out, not just an oval shape.  I added some mounting foam to the back of this piece.  On aqua card, I stamped my sentiment from the Bold sentiment set by Creative Expressions, using a clear perfect Medium pad and heat embossed it in white.  I centred my aperture over it and attached it.  I used the Timeless Rectangles and cut two of them to make a lacy piece to use behind it.  These fit nicely around the Justrite backgrounds to add a bit of a frilly edged look.  Using the jade felt from the Blossom felt pack, I made a rolled flower with a pearl centre.  I added it atop a messy bow tied from white seam binding and an aqua Baker twine bow.  I finished the card with some flatback pearls in the corner and a double white mat.  Finished dimensions are 6 1/4" x 7 1/4" in size (just a baby sized card for me, huh!)

We have a double lot of winners in the Comment Game this week!  I am so pleased that so many of you still take the time to leave comments this time of year.  I know we are all so busy with preparations to attend to, so thank you so much, I really appreciate the effort!

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, A beautiful card, although at first glance I thought it was pink and grey, but after reading it was aqua, still very beautiful.
Congratulations to all the lucky Winners. You got one Lancashire Steph, well done, enjoy !!

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
It's a lovely card - was not sure at all about the colours when I saw it on my screen. Like Patricia, thought it was pink and grey but aqua and white is a winning combination. Love the design and the idea of having the embossing showing through the vellum for a softer look. Makes sense now that you point it out but again, wouldn't have thought of it by myself.
Well done you for being nearly there as regards preparations, despite having only just come back from FL and three shows under your belt, plus all the other things you've got going on.
Luckily I only have a couple of presents to wrap, so that's done.

Hugs, Rose

Jane said...

AMAZING beautiful love love love this card.

GM Sue - love this especially the Timeless Rectangle frame - I dont have the background stamp or the focal die but going to improvise with others when I try making this in the NY - so it's a must try! Enjoy the pressie wrapping - it never fails to get me in the festive mood. We are all done now apart for getting some garden centre gift vouchers and mince pie making on X-mas Eve. Food shopping all done - it's war out there though! I had a call yday to say my cheese order I'd made in October from a local shop had been taken by another customer!!- I was not happy - but then a couple of hours later they rang to say they had found my order - it had been hidding apparently. So all is well and we have the cheese we wanted. But I am told cheese order thieves are out there if they can't find the cheese they want on the shelves, then then go hunting in customers orders - nice ehh.... Christmas just brings out the best in some folks!

Good Sunday morning to you Sue,

Although I have the pink and blue version on my screen I have to say it looks absolutely stunning. I too still have one or two gifts to wrap, but before that have to go into town (Sheffield) to collect the OH's No.3 and No.4 sons who will be visiting for the next two days. Anyhow, congratulations to all the winners and thank you Sue for sharing yet another masterpiece with us today. Enjoy the rest of your day.

Anonymous said...

Phew, ok, a few hour's on from my shock and emailed Sue. Not sure if I've calmed right down yet though ! Many congrats to the other lucky ladies and to those longing for this day and not seeing your name, here is the proof it WILL happen and now I almost feel guilty for deafening Mr Lancashire and reacting like I did earlier. Sorry ladies.

Todays card looks grey and pink on my screen also. Wondering Sue, would it be a candidate for a video tutorial one day ?
Im SO sorry, I forgot to send 'good mornings' to you Sue and all Winter Wilsonettes ! Cant imagin why !
Im sorted for Christmas all be it a miserable, very sad time only which dog addicts here will appreciate (going no further with this)
Im hoping for more craft vouchers next whatever day it falls on, so I can spend many hour's in my fav craft store choosing a craft item or two (depending on price v vouchers) to boost up my stash : )

Hoping that all lovely Winter travelling Wilsonettes have got to their destinations safely and have days full of family fun. To my other Wilsonette homies hope your day is a good one and as stressless as it can be. And if all else fails - KICK BUTT

Love and best wishes.
Hugs.

Just perfect Sue. My favourite type of card. 'Lavish' is a good adjective to describe the overall look of the card, and the lavish corners are so pretty.
I don't envy you with the wrapping. I have the kids do mine!!

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
I wasn't too keen on today's card at first because of the colours - pink and gray! However, having read the instructions I now know it's aqua and white which is a much nicer combination! Congrats to the winners especially Lancashire Steph - her mini blogs do make me smile on a morning.

Lacelady said...

Good morning Sue, what do you mean about taking time to come here? After getting up (and sometimes before that), here is my first port of call every day. Today's card is as beautiful as ever, I love that large stamp. I just wish I had a bottomless purse to be able to buy everything. Congrats to the winners.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
Another winner Sue with lovely quirks to it. I thought it looked different in the soft peach and jade until i read it and it was white. It's not until the last picture when it looks winter white that you see the true beauty of the card. Mrs W. what is happening to you, small cards!!! Please you are the only person i know that does my size of cards. Its like a piece, you need it big enough to hold in both hands to eat it. Well cards are the same for me, you need the size so that you get the maximum impact, or i just can't seem to get my head around teeny cards.
I am so chuffed for all the winners, but especially for you Steph, you deserve a win and what better time of the year than now. Enjoy it flower when it comes. You cheer up an awful lot of people each day and somehow its fair that you experience a wee bit joy as well.
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

P.S. Sorry forgot for people that don't know i'm Scots and don't know what a piece is, it's a sandwich. Bye, take care everyone

magpie said...

Gorgeous card Sue. It looks like pink and aqua on the photographs except for the last one. Don't you worry about it now, you do fantastic things for us plus, hey, it's a way of using our imagination! Lol! About the size of the card they say good things come in small packages.... (being 5ft 2 and a bit ins my husband is always saying this to me...) But in your case Sue you never go wrong no matter what the size of the card is! Congratulations to all the winners of the comment game! There you go Lancashire Steph, never give up hope! Told you you would be whoop whooping all day plus...! Lol! Thank you Sue for another wonderful masterpiece xx Love Karen xx

Hi Sue,
What a gorgeous card, love the colours. I would never have thought of turning over the embossed vellum and using the 'back' but it looks really lovely. I must admit I couldn't work out how you had used the two rectangles to make a larger one until today when I suddenly realised you had joined them horizontally not vertically deeerrr.. that's why we all appreciate your videos so much.
Thank you.

Gorgeous card, Sue, by now you might have done all your wrapping! Well done and still 2 days to go. Wish I could say the same but I have a lil excuse, well two lil excuses, my 2baby grandsons arrive on Christmas Day from Australia with their gorgeous parents and I'm having to clear all things from tiny hands including packing away my craft stuff - only for this reason would I do this!
Congrats to the winners, lovely Christmas pressies for you all, lucky people!! Ah well, back to the craft stuff packing!

Hi Sue, I just love this Awesome Card yes it does come across as Pink and Blue But if you Scroll Down to the Last Photograph that one has come out in WHITE AND AQUA.
I just love the Lavish Corner Background on Vellum which is a good name really as this Card is extremely Lavish indeed, I love every aspect of it, using Vintage Labels Six for the Aperture what a Beautiful Die, I love these New Bold Sentiments from none other than Creative Expression the best company ever, I'm very biased!
I love that you can alter them and then mount so you get the best of all, I Love how you have placed Timeless Rectangles to lay behind it just finishes it of Beautifully, love the messy Bow and not forgetting the Felt Flower, congratulations to the winners especially Lancashire Steph love and hugs from Sam x

Hi Sue

Absolutely beautiful card today, stunning.Very pretty colour scheme.

Congratulations to all the winners today, enjoy your goodies.

Steph in Lancashire, you are a lucky person, and enjoy your gift. It is weird though when you see your name as a winner. Congrats to all the other winners.

Steph:- I also lost little friends in the later part of this year 1 cat of old age, a stray that decided to make our house her home for 14 yrs, and one of 6yrs old of heart failure, we only had her for 3 and 1/2 yrs from a rescue home, but I know like you I gave them the best life ever. Hurt's like hell though. Please don't stop blogging every day, I look forward to it, you make me smile.

Kind regards :-)

Hi Sue. This is a lovely card today !! The colours look like grey and a very unpleasant shade of pink on my screen unfortunately but I can imagine them being white and aqua instead !! The lavish corners background stamp looks really lovely, especially on vellum. A great card Sue.
Congrats to all the winners but especially to Lancashire Steph !! I love to read your comments every day Steph, you really cheer me up and make me laugh even when I feel really down. I am so very pleased you are one of today's winners.
Lots of love to every one, love Tres x x x
