On Your Special Day



Hello my crafty friends!  Here's a lovely card for that special occasion!  Almost white on white, but with just a hint of gold, giving it a lovely soft opulence.  I hope you can take a few minutes to watch.

One of our new team members, Nikki Payne, has her first solo shows today on Create and Craft too.  Please tune in to see her at 10 am and 4pm with some brand new Creative Expression stamps.  They are lovely and I'm sure Nikki's samples will dazzle you!
Buy from Joanna Sheen





Finished dimensions are 7" x 7" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Sam Smithard said...

Hi Sue, each day I turn to your Blog and think I wonder what goodies will Sue bring today, and each and every day your Cards are Just Tremendous and Today's Card is Just "Awesome" I also love the White on White, I've loved every technique on The Card that you shared with us and thank you for that, just adding the Wax gives something a little different, I'm going to give this one a try I'll let you know in about a month if I've achieved it as it'll take me that long Lol! as if I make a mistake as I often do! in the Bin it goes and I have to start once more, I'm really looking forward to watching Nikki on Create and Craft today she'll do great
Love and hugs from Sam x

Gorgeous card, Sue, and thank you for a brilliant video. Have similar dies so can rework for a Ruby anniversary coming up, but do love it in white. Good to see the bitty blossoms being created for the first time - have always cut my own but can see another set of dies are needed!

What a beautiful gift today. So elegant and pure and as you say just right for Weddings/Anniversary or just because you like the format and colour scheme.
I just love every little piece of today's gift and would be over the moon if one came through my letter box.
Busy day ahead but it's Crafting all the way so YEH.

Good Morning Sue,

I too am a great white on white fan and I love this card. I've yet to try gilding wax but I think I may have to add it to an already long wish-list. Sadly I have to watch your video a little later but am really looking forward to it. Thanks for sharing this with us and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
What a beautiful card Sue and right at the middle of my comfort zone. Your white cards are always a vision to behold and although i can't see all the detail that i know you put on it in the video, i can see it on the photographs that you put up... stunning. The gilding wax i must get hold off as the soft pearl gold just highlights beautifully and just for a change i have near enough everything to make it except the gilding wax.
Well the Costa de Glenochil has been wet for the last 8 days at least, so please everyone who needs to go out in it, watch out for the other twits on the road as it is them that makes life so treacherous on the road.
See you all tomorrow hopefully,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Beautifully Elegant! What a super card. I'm watching the 10am prog. as I type, and I like some of the doily dies - I just wish C&C would put the sizes on the website. It irritates me a lot (same goes for embossing folders).

Myra said...

Good Morning Sue and Everyone,

Just realised have missed Nikki's first show on C&C !
Something not quite right when we have to learn about programmes purely from your blog, Sue. Why don't they list the names of the Crafting Guest along with the name of the Presenter? Seems simple to me - then we wouldn't miss our favourites!

Complaint over - Sorry!

Your card today Sue is another stunner and I agree with everyone else about it making beautiful wedding card. I love using gilding wax ,particularly the softer tones as they are easier to master - or they were for me!
Love to all
Myra

Brenda Lello said...

Good morning Sue,
Love the video. As I have said many times before - I love white on white, and with a little touch of gold this card is really beautiful. I also love my bracket borders, and you have taught me how to appreciate them even more - they are not just edges!!! THANK YOU for teaching me to think out of the box.
Hope you're having a good day, take care, love Brenda xxx

Hi Sue

Love today's white on white card today. This is one I shall definitely try. I haven't watched the video yet but will do so later. Both you and Julia posted regarding Nikki's shows. I went to record the 4.00 as I thought I had missed the 10.00. But, seeing as they were both stated as creative Expressions I had already set both of them to record. When your back I must email and ask you to do an embossing video using a mask which had been stamped up using a versamark and then run it through the Grand Caliber. You showed a card using the snowflake mask over Christmas as one that hadn't been shown before. But I don't seem to do this correctly as mine smudge a bit after adding the embossing powder. Hope you got the gist of this as I tend to ramble when I'm not to sure of exactly what I'm trying to say.

Beautiful-looking card Sue, will watch the video when I get a few minutes to spare!

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW what a fab video !! it is so helpful with all the hints and tips that you give to us and it is such a pleasure watching you with no interruptions either !! Another WOW, WOW, WOW card today. It Is sooo beautiful !! I love white on white cards. The embossing is great. I have the bitty blosoom dies but I cannot seem to get on with them very well. I think I really must give them another try. The bracket dies look great. They are on my New Years wish list as I think they are a must have. Thank you Sue.
Lots of love everyone love Tres x x x
