Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

Hello crafters!  Here is the card for today's Wednesday weekly card giveaway.  In case your monitor shows otherwise, it is milk coloured with gold accents.  If you want to be included in the drawing to win it, just leave me a comment today.  The winner will be announced on Saturday's post.  I started by stamping the Vintage Alphabet Soup background stamp using a clear Perfect Medium pad on milk card.  I had to do two stampings of it to cover the background size I wanted, but then just dusted it with gold mica powder for a soft shimmery look.  I used the Vintage Bracket and Label die to cut an aperture out of the centre of it.  On the lower portion of the background, I added a strip of milk card that I scored lines into.  Using one of the edgeability inserts, I cut a thin border out of milk card.  I used a piece of soft gold card behind it and embossed it together.  On a separate piece of milk card, I used the Wild Holly embossing folder to give texture to it.  I mounted this piece behind the aperture opening in my background.  I went back to the original piece of the background that I removed from the aperture and cut one of the tags from it so the pattern carried over.  I mounted it in the opening as a backdrop to my sentiment.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment in gold and cut it out with a simple oval die shape.  I used some Antique Linen ink on it while it was still in the die to highlight it.  I mounted it in the centre of the tag to complete my focal element.  I tied a double bow out of silky crush ribbon and added a flower made from the Spiral Blossom four and cream felt.  Two cream stick pins were added as accents.  The entire piece was matted with soft gold card before adding my final double milk mats with  pierced inner layer and completing my card.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x 8 1/4" in size.  I hope you like it, let me know.

Yes there are still a few more cards that have been shown and not given away.  That is, I left them with a coworker to post out, then forgot which ones and accidentally posted them already (yes the memory is going fast these days! LOL)  If you want to see the second card that will be in this week's drawing, just scroll to the bottom of this post!   All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. A beautiful card, on my screen most of the pics show it as a strange yellowy colour so I am glad you told us what it really is (and two of the close up pics show us gorgeous milk card with gold accents, lol) The second card is also beautiful, love the colours.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

good morning Sue
from a very very wet Burgundy.
Such a soft buttery colour scheme to start this very wet day and so gentle. I really do like the alphabet soup although as yet it's not in my collection.
And again we are being spoilt with another beautiful gift adding drama to gentleness with the colour scheme of black/blue.
I assure you that both of them would receive and wonderful welcome in my home. So fingers crossed.
Janet x

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, Love, love, love, these cards, especially the first one, I love the colours, they are really uplifting in this horrid weather. I truly didn't think I would want the alphabet soup stamp, but after seeing your creations with it, I now need it haha.
So sorry about the job Cameeli, but there will be something just around the corner.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Anonymous said...

Hi Sue - two more beautiful cards. I love the look of the gold mica on the cream card. This has inspired me to use my mica powders more than my embossing powders for a more subtle and stylish finish. Looking forward to watching Julia's shows today as I recorded them yesterday. Best wishes

Joan D said...

Good morning all. What a treat today! Really would love to give a home to either of these cards. Both are stunning, and so different . Xx

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
Well from a teaming down cats and dogs Glenochil its so nice to come in to a lovely sunny place, like our happy blog. Another 2 winners Sue and yes it is a funny yellow for the first couple of pictures, but the small close ups show off the lovely milk colour.I am really enjoying the felt flowers that you are making, there again it is probably my obsession for textures and fabrics. The black one reminds me of a pair of trousers that i have as they are a jacard material and i love them. Both cards are beautiful so it would be a hard choice, but some lucky person is going to be able to enjoy each card.
Cameeli flower it was not meant to be, so he up there has a bigger plan for you. There is something better coming for you flower, something that needs your talent more. And just remember they are the losers of an incredible person, so chin in the up position and do what you do best and smile a great big cheesy one that can light up the town.
Everything is in slow motion these days the now. Thank the lord i got heaved out of my work, otherwise i might be all day just trying to get the smallest of tasks done. You know how the clever people can film you and slow you down , well i wonder if they could speed me up, mmhh. So to my comrades in craft here that are in faster mode please can you pass on a little of your energy each so that i can be up at full speed again. Decided that i wouldn't enter the marathon this year, they might still be waiting 3 months down the road for me to finish.hee hee hee.
Right the eyes are going back to sleep along with the rest of me, so i will hopefully see you all tomorrow with any luck,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Sue Dunn said...

Wow Sue. Two card giveaway again. I love the opulence of the lettering in the alphabet, and with the gold it really does shine. Love them both as usual. Xx

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Two lovely cards today - we are being spoilt again. If I was to choose between them, it would have to be the first one - I think the colours are gorgeous . However, would happily give either of them pride of place in my little craft room. Sorry about the job Cameeli, keep smiling, I'm sure something will turn up for you. Love Alison xx

Good morning Sue
What a rich and luxurious card today so very beautiful and love it, the second card is different but equally just as beautiful and opulent too.
Well Cameeli it will be their loss not giving you the job but just remember the is a reason for everything although you may never learn the reason. Chin up and smile something better will be waiting for you.
Take care everyone in this awful weather stay safe, enjoy your day.

Pat S Witney said...

Hi Sue
Another 2 stunning cards today for the giveaway. Love how you used the mica powder instead of using embossing powders. Anyone would be honoured to win your cards Sue. The first ones colour does look a bit odd in the large picture, but ok in the smaller ones. Chin up Cameeli, a better job is just round the corner. Hope you have a nice restful day Norah, it's ok to be a bit slower, as this world is all rush rush rush. Missed you today Steph.

ros hodgkins said...

Hello Sue, I love gold cards, and i tease myself that I will be able to make a card in the style of Sue Wilson THE best card creator, and then I scroll down having read first the How- only to find it so exquisitely finished ie the pattern in the strip of gold card!!!. So I am content to ogle at my very own S W Original and dream.

Sheila - Ginger said...

Morning Sue,
When I first looked at your crd it lokked like different shades od gold but as I scrolled down to see the other images it was gold and white...even so they looked stunning in both colour ways.
I also thought the other carda was just as stunning. Once again I have everything crossed.

Love Sheila xx

Cameeli of Richmond said...

Hello again just inbetween meetings. I wanted to say a "big thank you" especially Pam, Mrs B, Tracy W, Sheila, Heather T,Patricia,Carol, Tina, P in Wales, Shirley T, Helen, snow queen,Norah, Sue, Margaret, beryl adn Jess for all the generous words of support.The Sky is blue here and the sun is trying hard to break through. As a woman the job market is always challenging, changing and evolving and its really competitive and you have to believe you are a Gladiator and when you get knocked down, you have to get up just in case they send in the LIONs.
I am lucky that I have a job and can work and I a relatively happy but do like to keep challenging myself wherever I am, but if I ever win the lottery!!! Here is Plan B
I would chuck it all in and throw a huge party for us all to meet!! Sue and her team would be our honoured guests.
Then in my dreams my vision of a crafting paradise hotel that is afordable, caters for all our needs, and collects those who need a little extra support with transport and care etc. It is place where we can nuture or souls in a tranquil and magical place with a swimming pool, lovely food, laugh and joke with all out wonderful people on the blog, and we can imerse ourselves in craft creativity in the most amazing fitted out craft room you can only dream of, filled with all our favourite crafting goodies, where we share ideas, in our day facilites or residental. And of course indulge in master classes from Sue, adn Julia and all her team etc. See you there!!
Well in my dreams its wonderful, aHH, well back to realitiy and my next meeting. thanks again to everyone

Hi Sue. Another beautiful card. I love the soft colours and the felt flower. The wild holly embossing adds extra interest. What a fabulous idea Cameeli has tho have a crafty place for us to meet. I don't drive an find it very difficult to get very far to craft events. If I win the lottery I will think seriously about setting up such a place and helping to arrange transport for guests.
Thank you for your inspiration.

Hi Everyone,
Wow as they say " follow that!" - I do mean what Cameeli has just posted! What a lovely thought! Would we actually get any crafting done or would we just talk too much!
So sorry you didn't get job - but there will be others , all being well.
Norah, so sorry you not so well! It is raining cats and dogs here also! Trust you feel stronger soon.
Tina sorry about your heating! Trust gets fixed today. Not a day to be without heating!

Sue, today's cards are gorgeous! I love the first one and just got the alphabet soup stamp very recently so looking for ideas.Like the mica powder tip!
Card number two is beautiful also but first one just has the edge - this from a lover of blue and white! Did the perfume bottle stamps on yesterday's shows have your name on them Sue, or was I seeing things?

Love to all,

Hi Sue, love both of today's cards. I think I really need the alphabet soup stamp :-)the card looks so elegant and simple when in fact there has been a lot of work put into it. I have your felt but still can't get my flowers to look quite as good as yours but I'll keep trying.

Tracy Stitt said...

Hi sue and gang. Choices choices. All these wonderful cards. I'd just love a day with sue Wilson think of all the lovely things you could create. Maybe sometime you could have an auction day for yourself sue and see how much money you could make for your charities? Hmmmm food for thought? Lol x

All the elements on this card are fabulous, the colours are so warm and rich. I like looking at all the individual pieces of the card, it feels like I'm inspecting a work of art! Although it is a work of art in our little world!

Another wonderful creation.

I was having a wee look at the blog candy, lots of goodies in there, what a great package, it's a lucky crafter that wins that!

Hello Sue
Well I love both cards but maybe the richness of the first one might tip the balance! However, I would be over the moon to display just one of them in my craft room to give me inspiration.

Hope to see you on our screens again soon, Sue.

Hi Sue

Absolutely beautiful cards today, but I think the 1st card stands out more for me, not only because it shows as yellow but it has the flower bow and beads. No:- 2 card is also gorgeous, and I would certainly be really happy if either one turned up in my postbox.

Kind regards :-)

Hi Sue,
Another stunning card. I will have to invest in some more embossing folders to help me create more texture and backgrounds.

sharon said...

Good evening Sue
Todays cards are both gorgeous. The first especially, I think because of the colour palette is so rich. I love the little horizontal border, it's so pretty. Both sentiment tags are lovely and I've put the alphabet soup stamp on my list of (many) crafty items to buy.

Such a lovely card Sue

Annie said...

First moment in my day I've been able to get to my computer. First stop Particraft and what an uplift - 2 gorgeous cards. The double embossed thin border on the first card is fabulous. Love the background also. Thanks, Sue, no matter what time of day you give me pleasure with your creations! they never fail,
Hugs Annie

Alice G said...

Beautiful cards Sue, particularly like the alphabet stamped background. I'm not sure what you mean re dusting it with mica powder does that means you didn't emboss it?

Hi sue, another stunning card with wonderful colours I'm all for elegant and not too fussy as it let the beautiful dies shine.

Loving the videos and samples but can't wait to see you back on tv and I'm hoping you get your hands on the new spellbinder dies.
Don't suppose you are going to spill the beans on all the boxes full of secrets that got delivered to creative they have been teasing us on Facebook.

Keep up the good work all the best Pauline ( freedom99)
