You Light Up My Life/ Sneak Peek

 Hello crafters!  Here is one of the samples that I made for Sunday's live show from CHA.  We are premiering the new Heartfelt Creations collections called Majestic Blooms and Raindrops on Roses.  I have had the pleasure of creating with both of these beautiful sets recently and what fun I have had.  Today's card shows off one of the stamps and the flower dies from one of the bundles.  I stamped the flowers with a black archival ink pad and coloured it with Distress Markers. I cut it out by hand, shaped it a little and mounted it over another stamped version that I cut out with Majestic Labels 25.  I cut the larger frame in the set as well and mounted it up on foam pieces for dimension.  I backed it with a periwinkle blue mat.  I cut the die and used several of the flowers to create my floral trio.  I edged the tips with some Shaded lilac and Tumbled Glass distress inks.  I tied a messy bow using two colours of seam binding, spritzed it and crumpled it for a shabby chic look.  I added it behind my flowers and tucked my sentiment in as well.  I made two pretty stick pins and added them for an embellishment.  I used the Cosmic Shimmer white PVA glue to add dots to the blue mat.  Then finished the card with a double white pierced mat layer to give it a nice framed look.  Finished dimensions are 7" x 9" in size.

Since it is Saturday, I need to announce the winner of the Wednesday Card Giveaway as well.  The winner this week is:

 Yorkielass (June)!!!

Congratulations!  Please email me at to confirm your address and claim your card.  Another sneak peek tomorrow as well!  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
Oh how i really like the new stamps and designs that are coming out at the CHA this year. Pretty. Today's card is so beautiful Sue and in lovely colours too. Thank you for mixing the old with the new thus showing that they are all truly interchangeable. I really need to get out my different dies and have a play but that will need to be during the week when i get a wee bit peace.
Well done June, enjoy the treat when it comes out to you.
Tracey hope you are enjoying your time with dad again and that he is well and truly on the mend.
Steph, oh i hope you are feeling a lot better today as i know just how down you can get with constant illness, you never seem as if you're getting a let up at times. Thinking of you flower.
Well from a beautiful sunny winters day looking at the beautiful Ochil hills have a great day everyone, and i hope to see you all again tomorrow,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Vick said...

I adore this card, I love the freshness of it, the clean lines and the use of the dies, but most of all I love the watercolour look that you have given the stamp, I have all the distress markers, well, the initial 30odd set I believe there is another large pack out but seeing as I haven't used up the initial distress markers I will carry on with all them for now but I love the watercolour effect you can achieve with them and the pads, as I used to (and am taking up again) paint with oils onto canvas, and started on the acrylics, but am loving the simplicity and flow of watercolouring, and Tim Holtz DI's manage it so well without me having to go out and buy more paint ! result!!! love everything darling, hugs always, Vick xx
