Coffee With A Friend

Hello my friends!  Here is another sneaky peek for the Show on Sunday.  This one uses the new  Coffee Cup stamp set by Justrite stamps!  This new embossing folder is not in stock just yet so it isn't on the Sunday show, but I promise to have it on the next shows that I am doing in March.  I embossed the background using the new Art Deco Fanfare folder using milk coloured card.  I added a tone on tone border cut from my California Collection border set.  I thought it would look pretty with a row of cream pearls to accent it.  I stamped my sentiment and coffee cup on to some decorative paper that I had in my stash.  It was stamped with a Coffee Archival ink (appropriately enough) to give it a soft vintage feel.  I stamped the coffee cup a second time and fussy cut (by hand) it out and mounted it upwards.  I stamped just the flower on the cup again and cut and mounted it upwards as well.  I added a tiny bit of shading with a Tattered Rose distress marker.  I made several roses in differing sizes using the Classic Rose die set from my Finishing Touches range.  You can easily do this just by following the paper rose tutorial at the top of my blog and just substitute the die shapes for the stamped images.  They are the same shape!  I "sugared" all three with Diamond Sprinkles and then seated the largest flower atop a messy bow that I tied from two colours of seam binding (Mimi Brown and London Tan) and I added a jute twine bow in cream too.  I placed the two smallest flowers in the opposite corner on the same jute.  I made a couple of stick pins to match  from beads in my stash and put the ends into the knot on the bow.  Finally I finished the card with a some swirl pearls and a pierced mat, then a thin brown mat and a final milk coloured mat.  The finished  dimensions are 7" x 8" in size.

Now to announce the winner of the Wednesday Card Giveaway!  This week's card goes to:

Mrs. B!!!

Congratulations!  Please email me at to confirm your address and claim your card.  Don't forget to check if you are a winner tomorrow as there will be quite a large list this week!  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue and Wilsonettes
Today's card is truly beautiful, I love this embossing folder and can't wait until it's in stock. The border is on my 'I need' list but will I ever clear my list when you bring us such amazing products? I haven't stopped playing with my prize since it arrived yesterday it's even prettier in real life. I love your attention to detail it makes all my cards look as if I spent hours on them. Only one sleep until we see you on our screens and I'm so looking forward to your shows. I hope your finishing touches dies are going to be back in stock soon. I love the pins you've made, I have bought some Creative Expressions blank pins and have loads of beads so I'm going to try to make my own (I don't think they will look like yours though lol). I enjoyed reading about the butterflies Cameeli thanks. Congratulations Mrs B, also I hope Nora and Steph are well.

Morning Sue and my dear Wilsonettes. MRS.B. Im thrilled to bits you were chosen to receive Wednesday's card, well done. Its wedding flowers today, so off to the 'white side' to meet my daughter, her man, and her future MIL (1st time I have met her) ! SAM - id love to take your advise but not today hon. When I get back from Yorkshire I have to get my baskets ready and prettily presented for tomorrow, then wrap the card order I have to hand over at market in tissue paper and Messey Bow and stamp 'Thank You" on card and die cut it out to attatch to the parcel (if a job is worth doing) etc

Sue, your card today is undescribable, it's the kind of gift you want to give your very best girlfriend after latte and catch up on a summer afternoon spent al frsco at a quaint little coffee shop. I can NEVER see myself making cards such as your's Sue, but if I persevere taking my horrible body to market each month, then I can collect your wonderful collection of craft items. I was SO looking forward to thawing out with hot coffee and water bottle whilst watching your 5pm show, instead I've just had to set to record so I know its done (but I understand)
Hope all our lovely ladies wake up happy and healthy this Saturday morning. Sending love to all.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
I LOVE today's card, the colours, the decorations, just everything about it. Must admit to liking brown and cream together always makes a good combination in my book. The cup of coffee just suits being stamped in the mocca ink. And those little roses are so cute and just the right size.
SO pleased for you Mrs D. on winning Wednesday's beautiful card front, i hope you enjoy it's beauty when you get it on your "craft desk" or in my case, diningroom table.
Steph, take it as easy as you can today flower, with quite a few coffee stops to recover and let the legs catch up. It will give you time to interrogate the MIL as to how she is with your little pride and joy (daughter), but also to merge over both your children and doing what is in their interest. Enjoy the company today Steph and good luck with tomorrow.
Well got hubby on the back so will have to go and get work done. I hopefully will see you all tomorrow, take care.
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Hi Sue,
What a refreshing change for a card. I'm taking a break from sorting out my crafty stash but now I have some more items to put on my wish list. Starting with the art deco background! Love it.

Wow wow wow is all I can say about today's card. Coffee and cream what more could we ask for. love the new embossing folder and the stamp.

Congratulations Mrs B on winning Wednesday's card, and try not to go overboard while you are out for the day Steph and good luck for tomorrow. hope you have some sunshine today Norah.

Hi Sue

Sorry I have'nt blogged for a few days, but I have had a look at your cards every day,but have'nt been in the right frame of mind to comment. I think all of them have been absolutely beautiful, but I really love today's card.

I I could send that card I would send it to Margaret,Corgi owner and Heather T. Thank you Heather for all your lovely thoughts and hugs on my email, and Margaret, thank you for all the advice you have given me regarding Berkeley on my blog. Even as I type Paul has just taken her back to the vet. Even since cutting back on the DDAVP medication she has gone from an active dog with a wee problem, to a dog that won't eat,drink and won't even get up for a wee now. Margaret, did it get that bad before to stopped medication for Oliver, and do you think maybe we ought to get a 2nd opinion. It is heart breaking to see her go down hill in just 2 wks of starting the drugs. Sorry to be so sad, and use Sue's blog but if you have any advice I would love to hear from you.

Kind regards

Tina X

Sorry Sue to use your blog like this.

Love the colour of this card and those stick pins are gorgeous

Debo said...

Oh Sue! You post such amazing photos of your beautiful cards so that we get to see all the detail - thank you!

Just wanted to say, I bought your Embroidered Striplet die and spent a whole day playing with it!! It was longer than I'd realised but I managed to cut smaller versions by only going part way through machine, then turning it round, moving the die up and cutting the second half. AMAZING!!! Today I suddenly thought of making a background with it...havent had chance to try it yet but think it will look stunning!!!
The only downside is that now I want ALL of them!!!!

Congratulations, well done and thank you for such beautiful, clever, versatile designs!
