Be Who You Are/ Sneak Peek

 Hello my crafty friends!  It is finally time for a sneak peek for my shows on Sunday.  This card showcases the Cascading Fern background, which I just love and the Vintage tag frame from the Stitched Flowers stamp set, both from Justrite stamps.  It is a really simple to make card, but I liked the way it came out (snuck in a few of my dies on to it as well).  I started by stamping the Cascading Fern using a clear Perfect Medium pad on to some Periwinkle blue card.  I heat embossed it with gold detail powder.  I cut the background in to four squares and matted each piece with soft gold card.  I added some mounting foam to the backs of each square then added them to a larger piece of white card.  On coconut white card, I stamped my sentiment which is from another set on the show called Ribbons and Swags and heat embossed it in gold as well.   I stamped the frame from the Stitched Flowers, heat embossed it in gold and cut it out with the matching Vintage Tag die.   I cut two more of the same shape, one in white and one in gold.  I cut both of them in half and used them as shadow mats around the main one.  I mounted the frame with foam over the sentiment.  I made a rose from my Classic rose die and sugared it with Iced Snow, added some foliage from the Faux Quilled Leaves and two decorative stick pins that I made to match.  I finished this relatively easy card off with a pierced white mat and a few layers of blue and gold then a final white mat.  Finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x 6 3/4" in size.  The shows aren't until Sunday at 12 noon until 2pm and then again at 5pm to 6pm so I will probably show you another sneak peek tomorrow and Sunday as well.  Please check back.  All for now, Sue x

morning Sue
Such a beautiful and elegant gift to end the working week. Your colour scheme is just gorgeous and the format simple but very very elegant. I have at last managed to purchase some stick pin blanks so will be making a batch but I know they will not match up to your which are truly beautiful.
Will be recording Sunday but will not be able to watch until much later as I shall be in the midst of packing ready for the off on Monday morning heading for my spring break in France.
See you tomorrow.

I have lost over 3 stone since August last year and still could do with a bit more!! My knee has held me back, but I am happy now that I have shrunk 2/3 dress sizes for a healthy size 18/20 so todays senitment is perfect for me!! Pray I can look elegant on the big Day!! not long now until 03rd May!!

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
I have fallen in love with the periwinkle blue card, it is such a beautiful colour. I love how you have done todays card Sue, it gives it a different look entirely and could use up some of our scrap card. Haven't got any of the items needed except the black and with card, but its a start.
Oh Tina, i am feeling the pain of your poor toe and i am not even there, i can only hope that it will be healed by the time of your daughters wedding. I missed out in an explosion at least for my wedding, i think its about the only thing that didn't go wrong, but as i said i had a great day. I bought a pair of Ivory satin ballet slippers to wear at the reception as i wasn't having sore feet and they were brilliant, your daughter might want to think about that as it is a long day on your feet in high heels.
Cameeli, i think you have done brilliantly in about 7 months losing 3 stone is fantastic and i bet your son is even more proud of his gorgeous mum and that is what you will look on his wedding day... gorgeous. Oh we are going to have some stunning mums this year between Tina, Steph and Cameeli. Steph my Lancashire flower, buying shoes and a handbag will be a lot easier on you than the outfit has been, but buy ones that you are comfy in as it will be a long day of standing around (photo's seem to take forever).
Well off to collect one of the mothers who live out with the district for the childrens(which is a laugh since mine over took me a long while ago) Easter Fayre at the school. She needs to either get a £30 taxi or numerous buses and hey she's 7-8 miles away from me so it really isn't a problem.
So i will leave all you my lovely friends and glad that my wedding tale cheered up so many and they say worse things happen at sea don't they...ha ha ha.
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Pat S Witney said...

Morning Sue and wonderful Wilsonettes. What a beautiful card Sue. The fern background gives a gorgous backdrop (I always have a problem spelling that) just one of those words I suppose ! Im so looking forward to watching your shows Sunday Sue, I have always been at market before so really missed out but it will be a Sunday of Sue and Sue and Sue I cant wait : ) although I shall record to help me in the future (hope they have a lot more cups ready as they will be flooded with emails as they always are) when our special lady/ies/now magnificant male is demo'ing : )

I must get back into my craft space today as I just couldnt find the energy after yesterday - my feet are still burning and everywhere else feels like its been troden on by a rhino, but there you go, put up or shut up right ?!
Those strong awful meds will help a little.
Cameeli your a star, you have done brilliantly in prep for the big day, well done, but as far as the outfit is concerned I dont think you could do better than Debenhams, so much choice in the Classic range (very expensive) but if you think you will wear something like that again its an investment, whereas I have no family and friends I couldnt justify spending 100.00 and more on a dress, thats without all the rest to add on so my Betty Jackson navy dress (in the sale) :)
Will be worn again, very plain and understated but 'dressed ' up with me 'other clobber' ! Anyway just dont overdo it with that knee tonight Cam ! Then you can join the MOTB crew here, what a lot of proud moms on Sue's blog at the mo : ) and WE have the BEST MOMMA of ALL cuz our Momma goes on telly lol.

Im done and my meds are calling. So I wish you all love, health, friendship and caring cuddles to my ladies that need cuddles today xx

Hi Sue. WOW !! This card is really beautiful !! I love the way you have made four panels from the new Cascading Fern background stamp. You have used that gorgeous Periwinkle blue card again and this time with Gold card and Gold embossing - just fab !!! I like the stamped frame to. ( sorry forgotten it's name already !! ) I Love the sentiment and that particular stamp set is on my huge wish list. Your Rose and quilled leaves, along with with the stick pins are Utterly Gorgeous Sue !!!! Please, Please, Please could you bring us some little selections of different coloured beads especially to make different colour stick pins, in kits !!! I think it would be a great edition to the Creative Expressions Range of Craft goodies !!! I am counting down now and cannot wait to see your shows on Sunday. Thank you Sue for all that you do x x x

My stepdaughter came down for the weekend last night and she bought me a Mothers Day card and a present !! She bought me a mug with the words " The Loveliest Mum Ever " written on it and the Californian Dies Decorative Frames B set !!! I am over the moon.

Cameeli, Congratulations on your weight loss !! That is fantastic news. I am just at the beginning of mine. I am only in my second week !! I have a long way still to go. Good luck with finding a wedding outfit. x x x

Steph, I am glad you have sorted out your outfit. That will be one less stressful thing for you. Hopefully finding shoes and a bag will be much easier. x x x

Tina, I hope things are running a little better now with all your wedding preparations. I hope you are recovering a bit with your sore toe. x x x

Pam, I am thinking of you always. sending you a big hug x x x

To Sue and all our blog family, I hope everyone is ok today lots of love Tres x x x

Hello Sue and everyone,
What a stunning card, LOVE the periwinkle card with the soft gold. The Cascading Fern and the Stitched Flowers stamp sets have both been added to my wish list. Then to enhance it even more you had it added the beautiful Classic Rose and the Faux Quilted Leaves with your beautiful stickpins - Oh I just love this card!

Looking forward to Sunday shows.
Take care love Brenda xxx

Myra P - thank you, granddaughter and classmates played there violins and cellos beautifully, the music teacher was inspirational (lucky children) I'm sure some of these children will go on and continue playing.

Steph - So so pleased you got your MOTB dress and fascinator that's the hard bit over, everything else will now fall into place so sit back and look forward to enjoying the day, you deserve it, you've put a lot of effort in.

Cameeli - We'll done, you should be very proud of yourself, hope you have success looking for your wedding outfit, I don't go over doing it be careful with that knee.

Norah - HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT OF WRITING A BOOK? I think you have the whole country in stitches yesterday telling us about your wedding, I thought Ours was bad enough when the elderly priest marring us fell asleep on the altar and then he gave my husband the wrong name and cap it all the photographer didn't turn up - so some hours later when the photographer did arrive we went back to the church only managing to take a few family and guests, (not many cars in those days) for photographs to be taken.

Hello Sue, This is such a pretty card, love the fern background, so opulent. The rose is gorgeous, the iced snow is delicious. Love the delicate leaves, use mine lots. Have booked my seat for Sunday, can't wait to see you and all the goodies you bring to us.
Congratulations Cameeli on your amazing weight loss, your son will be so very proud of you. Good luck on finding your MOTB outfit, happy shopping. Steph so pleased that you have your MOTB outfit sorted, you will look amazing, the shoes and bag will be easier to find and less stressful. Tina hope your toe is feeling better and that the explosion has not held up the bridesmaid dresses to much. Norah your wedding tale had me in stitches yesterday, you are so funny and make my day.
Hugs to Pam and everyone that needs one.
Take care everyone.
Hugs June xxx

Norah you did make me smile yesterday with your wedding wedding antics,your so funny.
I also had a bit of drama with mine ,I bought my wedding dress. The assistant wrapped & boxed it up & said don't take it out of the box until a week before the wedding day but luckily I took it out to show my dad I could have cried (I did ) right down the front of my dress, there was a ink line from a pen ,so luckily I did open it & had time to sort it.
Steph so pleased you found your MOTB outfit I'm sure you will look gorgeous take a bit of a rest now hugs xx
Tina hope your poor toe is getting better,& the explosion hasn't held you up too much with the bridesmaid dresses.xx
Tres how lovely of your stepdaughter to say you are the best mum ever & to get you a sue die she sound lovely.xx
Wow Camille well done on your 3 stone weight loss you should be very proud of yourself but take care of that knee,& good luck with your finding your wedding outfit xx
Love & hugs to you all & Pam thinking of you take care

magpie said...

Helloooo Sue and all the Wilsonettes! Oh wow! Sue it's stunning! I'm loving that periwinkle blue lots and it looks so regal with the gold. With the fern background, the stunning rose, the pins and I love those leaves! I watched Julia yesterday and what a beautiful flower she made with the labels two? Or was it the labels four? Which ever one it was I hadn't got it but had the other one! Pam, thinking of you and I think all our blog family agree Norah's a gem isn't she? We'd be lost without our daily fix of humour. "Thank you Sue" for bringing us all together. Kitty hope you have a lovely day at Rushden tomorrow. Steph, glad you're fixed up now with a MOTB outfit and that you're having a rest now....Cameeli, oh wow! Fantastic weight loss, you should be so proud of yourself (as are we!), well done! Beryl, you keep going shug. Some lose it more quickly than others so don't let that put you off. Both my husband and I were slow in losing it but we got there. You should be proud of yourself too! Well done! Awww Tres, how lovely that your step daughter to do that for you. My step daughter rang me up and wished me a happy one. It meant such a lot to me too. Brenda, what a memorable wedding day it was for you too. Probably not funny at the time but it is now. As for your grandaughter playing the violin, I bet you were so proud of her. I hope she goes far. I love hearing them in an orchestra.....eee the things you wished you had done at school eh...? Norah, yours was a gem too and like everyone else it made me laugh. Anyway, at the end of the day it was all worth it eh?! Linda, good grief, it WAS a good job you did look at your wedding dress..... x Looking forward to watching you on Sunday sue. I'll be taping the first half and watching the second bit! Take care Sue and everybody, Love and hugs to you all that could do with one today xx Love Karen xx

Evening all. Beautiful card I really like the cours it seems to have a calming effect lol. Lookin forward to seeing the shows and what georgeous ness u are gonna bring to it.
Having a laugh out loud with all the wedding tales that's been happening yep have to agree with comfy shoes. I don't wear heels but bought small heels for the wedding day after our photos were done the shoes were off and my trusty white croc shoes went on. No one noticed them under the dress till we did our first dance then folk noticed and had a right laugh but I didn't care as I was havin a ball! Lol
Love Tracy from killie
