 Hello!  Another sample from the CHA show for today.  I was really happy with this one and have to admit that I made it in again with a slight variation in another colour to send to a friend of mine.  I started with the Tapestry background die and cut it in white.  I left a border around it wide enough to do some piercing and added mounting foam on the back to raise it for dimension.  I used the Majestic Blooms stamp on white card with a clear perfect medium pad.  I heat embossed it with white powder and cut the flowers out with the matching die.  Once cut, I inked them with Peacock Feathers distress ink.  I love the way the white embossing pops against the inked flowers.  I used a stylus to shape the flowers and then made a bud for the centres and added slightly larger flower pieces around the buds. I stamped the sentiment (from Taylored Expressions) and cut it into a strip, matted with teal card.  I seated the largest flower on to a white seam binding bow at the end of the sentiment strip.  I added two more flowers as accents and for a pop of colour.  I finished the card with a double white pierced mat layer.  Finished dimensions are 6 1/4" x 8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good Morning Sue,
Loved your demo last night, not least Emma Lou's Flowers!
Please, please, please, can you tell us what weight of card stock to use for flowers.
I have tried every weight on earth and never seem to able to produce such loveliness.

Do like the tapestry background die, Sue, really makes a lovely card. Sure your friend was thrilled to receive it.
Saw the show on my PC, not so good as television, but okay - the Majestic Blooms are something to lust after! Particularly liked the first card with the stamped and micro beaded background.

Hi Sue beautiful card, could not get the show on my tablet last night as the CC app would not connect so will try today. How do you manage to get the cuts on the banner sentiment look so perfect I have tried but they never look right or match? Thanks x

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
What a beautiful card you have made for us yet again Sue. I like these dies that you could put a colour behind to have it show through. But today's delight is just so right and with the touch of colour behind the sentiment and the colour of the flowers.
Cameeli flower, i really do have everything crossed for you on getting your dream job. You do know that you have all your friends here on Sues' blog wishing you well, Good Luck Cameeli.
From a soggy Ochil Hills this morning, take care everyone and hopefully see you all tomorrow.
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Tres said...

Hi Sue. What a stunning card this morning !! I really love it !! The tapestry background folder looks great. A lovely sentiment in a lovely font. I think your forked sentiments always look perfect. The flowers are gorgeous and I am starting to regret not having got them, but I think I probably will end up with them to, eventually, as well as the spellbinder create a flower dies I just could not resist buying last night !! I will have to wait until next pay day. The Heartfelt Creations majestic blooms die looks fab because you can die cut all those flowers out together all at the same time !!
Well lots of love to you Sue. I hope you are having a good time at the C H A shows.
Lots of love to everyone, love Tres x x x

Beautiful card. I bought this flower die and stamp set last night. Can't wait to have a play.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Sue,
Good morning everyone !
Thoroughly enjoyed the show but like others wished it had been longer! Would have been lovely to see more examples as tons of hard work must go into those!

It was very interesting to see the variety of flowers which can be made.

Love today's card , the simplicity , the flowers , the dies and the double piercing ! So effective.

Thank you once again.
Love Myra

Good Morning Sue

Haven't been around much due to on-going health problems so sadly missed your weekend posts. However I've just "blogged in" and have to say that yesterday's card is probably THE most beautiful card I have EVER seen(jmo). That said, I also love today's project - I just wish I had one-tenth of your amazing, awe inspiring, talent! Congrats to Sunday's winners and am off to watch recording of your show yesterday. Enjoy the rest of your day.

Hi Sue,
Well you've done it once more "FANTASTIC SHOW" Over far to quickly, why is there lots of the same shows on Create and Craft showing over and over again when the "Best the Queen of Crafting" gets only one hour not only do you use Die Cuts you Stamp, Emboss, Distress so your an all round Crafter and the BEST! OK enough of that!
Today's Card is Just so Awesome I really love this Die out of all of the Expandable Dies this is my favourite, I so Love the Peacock Distress Ink such a beautiful rich colour and the white really stands out so well, I must purchase The Majestic Bloom Stamps Love them, and I really love The Sentiment from Taylored Expression I love the Script I love how it flows. Your friend is one very lucky lady mainly to have you as a Friend and to receive such a Stunning Card, from you.
Love and hugs from Sam x

Phew, made it, ran all the way, tripped up the step on the way in but Im fine. Hello Sue and Wilsonettes. Well, WOW, what a treat we all had yesterday, although I agree with Sam, we NEVER see enough of you and your fantastic demo's ( wish the C&C camera crew had gone too) we would have had so much better views of your demo. The samples you made were truly beautiful, you may say the tools help, but you have to have the ideas plus talent to make the tools work, all of which you have in abundance dear Sue. Todays card is totally stunning, sooo pretty, so beautiful, and the colours are outstanding, I have the Peacock ink but not broken the seal as Im waiting to use my new foundation card when Im up to collecing it ! Well, just when I thought Id got a small part of my sanity back after the Geeky Scientist' card who loves cycling, I now have 2 more ' wacky' orders - an 18yr female taking her driving test, the spec I have is.2 humourus cards 1 from the dogs - 2 white German Shepherds and the recipient drives a Nissan Micra, and another from her parents !! Now then Wilsonettes, you tell me how I can make THAT order into a Wilson W.O.W ? Impossible unless I micro bead a photo of 2 GS dogs, tie a messey bow instead of a collar ! Nope, printed a bloomin Nissan Micra car, cut out the back window and printed two dogs and placed them as if they are looking out the rear window ! And used a paw print stamp for the background !!! Whatever NEXT I ask : ) what ever happened to asking for pretty, beautiful cards I wonder ?! : 0
Before I kiss you all goodnight I want to join all my other Wilsonettes in wishing our Cameeli GOOD LUCK with your ideal perfect job, may I ask Cameeli, is it sweeping up after Mrs W has poked out all the dies, cuz.those new Doillie dies will make such a mess so you will need MY help : )
Hope everyone has had a good Monday.
Lots of hugs.

Hi Sue,
Love to all friends on the blog. Steph , thanks for saying what I was thinking! We did not see camera close-ups or details of the cards to the standard to which we are accustomed! Ooh! It's true I think . We are accustomed to C&C camera crews who are superb.

Best wishes here too Cameeli! You can do it.
Keep well Margaret A!
Well done to the team making Wedding Invitations.
Been crafting with children today. Was asked " please could you make a crown for my teddy" . Aren't children wonderful - tiring but wonderful.
