It's A Girl

 Good Sunday morning all!  I have switched gears in order to show you a completely different sort of sample which is from the Cupcake Celebration stamp set by Justrite on today's shows.  I had a blast playing with them as they are a bit of the cutesy side so it appealed to me, but they aren't over the top either!  The set has several completely different phrases with it including some for new babies, birthdays and special days in general, very well rounded.  There is a matching die set with adorable cupcakes and a matching stand.  I picked out a pink and cream striped background paper from my stash and used the shaped die from the Cupcake Stand die set to cut an aperture in the middle.  On a piece of milk card, I stamped the frame from the set and embossed it with ivory embossing powder for a tone on tone look.  I added mounting foam to the back of my striped background and mounted over the stamped frame.  Using milk card again, I cut the cupcake stand die and mounted it in the centre of the frame.  I cut a variety of cupcakes using the striped paper, milk card and dusty rose card and mixed and matched them to make six cupcakes for the stand. I put a bit of Iced Snow on the top of the cupcakes as an embellishment too.   I glued them in place then cut a bow to add to the bottom of the stand too (added a tiny pearl to the centre of it).  I tied a messy bow out of chalk seam binding and added it to the corner of my aperture.  Using some of the off white felt from the Blossom felt pack, I made a flower and added it to the centre of the bow with some Bakers Twine.   I stamped the It's A Girl sentiment in two parts using a Clear Perfect Medium pad and Ivory embossing powder.  I cut them into two flags and added them to the top of the card with a little curl to the edge.   I matted the card with milk card and a thin layer of dusty rose.  On the milk card layer I added PVA glue dots using the new Ivory PVA glue from Cosmic Shimmer.  To complete the card, I added three small cream pearls to the upper corner.  Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8" in size.

It's Sunday Comment Game winners time now!  The winners for this week are:

Sonja Stephenson!!!
Maggie H!!!
Christine C and Ella!!!

For the extra qualifying post of Wed. April 2nd, the winners are:

Good morning Sue and everyone. A very different "Sue" card today, looking forward to seeing more this afternoon. I'll be recording the shows as it's my Mam's birthday today.

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
What a gorgeously pretty card this is - no mistaking who it's for!
The paper and cupcakes are just lovely, as is the lovely bow and felt rose. I've not yet had the courage to do one of them, you make it look easy but I've a funny feeling it isn't that easy.
Looking forward to the shows.
Congrats to the winners.
Have a great Sunday everyone.
Hugs, Rose

What a pretty card, Sue, sugar and spice and all that!! Not too cute and cupcakes just wonderful. Like Kitty, wonder how you fit it all in - especially as you do ALL of the prep for your shows and demo days.
Looking forward to Tool Shed - think it;s with Dean which will be great, the Wilson duo!
Have a good day, Sue, I'm sure we will.

Good morning Sue
Such a pretty card and I would never have thought to put cupcakes on a baby card but it works brilliantly. I love the felt flower and the cream embossing powder and glue (I've ordered it already from your show lol). I am going to my sons today so your shows are on record, I will watch them later on tonight. Congratulations to all the lucky winners.

Good morning Sue

Good luck with the shows today I hope we are going to get them all this time! I have to say I am not in to 'cutesy' cards they don't do it for me. But it wouldn't do for us all to be the same it would be a dull world indeed. However I shall still be watching as you will I am sure have lots of other goodies, hints and tips and I love your demos. Have a great time and congratulations to the comment winners.

What a fab card and very in vogue with the cup cakes. Hope my video recorder works as I will be travelling back home to the Midlands from Surrey when your programme is on, but should be back for the 5o'clock one. Can't wait to see your demos. Have a grata day x x x

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Thank you for today's gift. A very different style for you but one that has immediately gone into my 'must do' file. In the main I don't do 'cutie' cards but I have an adopted granddaughter who has just had her bedroom done out with the theme of cupcakes so today's style and format will just fit the bill when it's her birthday (she will be six this time round).
Still haven't tried the felt flowers yet - I really must get round to doing this - note to myself.
Will be trying to watch your shows today whilst in the midst of last minute packing the car etc for the off tomorrow morning. This means that for the next couple of days I will not be able to see you. I can already feel withdrawal coming on so roll on Wednesday when we can meet again. Congratulations to this week's lucky winners.
Take care everyone. See you Wednesday morning.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes from a dull Grey autuminal Bolton, but the sun will shine at midday when you light up my lounge with your lovely smile Sue, im thrilled you are with Dean and not DB (sorry) or id have to record but miss all the helpful tips I SO badly need to help me ! Its the first time Ive been able to watch a live show as the market dates have always clashed so Im thrilled to be at home today.
Happy Birthday Shirley have a lovely meal out with your family.
Cameeli - SO happy and relieved you found your wedding outfit and you had a lovely experience to boot... So... Come on spill the beans : ) sounds like us moms are almost ready for our 'special' day Tina, hope all ok with the plans.
We start with our 1st mom of the bride next week : )
This beautiful cute pretty card today really is full of Sunday smiles, I too would never have thought of welcoming a new baby with cupcakes but it really works.
One thing I have never been able to afford to buy is a complete set of stamps and dies that go together, its something Id love to save for as it really does help bring everything together beautifully, as do the felt flowers, so I think I must treat myself to a few pieces of felt soon.
Have a great time today Sue. Cant wait to drewl over ALL the new goodies.
Congrats to all the winners today, enjoy your gifts.
Love you.

Good morning Sue. What a brilliant, fresh idea for a new baby card. It makes such a change from the traditional cradle, crib, pram etc. Which I am guilty of making myself. This would work brilliantly for either sex. Yet again you wow me. Lots of love, Jo xx

Hi Sue
Another stunning card today. Mind you, you never ever do anything else but make stunning cards. This card certainly works for a baby card, and who doesn't like cupcakes. It was my grand daughters birthday yesterday (12 yrs old). And she wanted a recipe book for cupcakes which she received. She would have loved a cake like this. Will be recording your shows as usual. like Lanc Steph I'm glad your not on with DB as she talks right over the demonstrator and never stops to give them a chance to speak. it's as if she's doing the show on her own, and as if she's the main attraction,( which she's not). So glad you found your outfit Cameeli we all said you would find something that was just perfect. And I'm so glad the ladies in the shop were so nice. Hope everyone has a nice day and hugs to everyone who needs one.

Jess Watson said...

Morning Sue, gorgeous baby card, thinking outside the box as you always do! Will be watching your shows today and recording as well.
Well done Cameeli I bet you look fantastic in your outfit, now you can relax and enjoy the run up to the wedding.
Congrats to the winners today, enjoy your prizes.
Take care, Jess x

Hello Sue
What a scrumptious card! Lovely background paper, stamps, dies, felt flower etc.
I had never thought of cupcakes for a baby card as I tend to think of prams, cradles or tiny feet as my focal point, but I think the cupcakes work really well in your lovely card.
Looking forward to seeing your shows today. It is a little breezy and wet in West Sussex today so I will not feel guilty watching TV when there is so much to be done in the garden!
Best Wishes

Alison Couchman said...

Very pretty card today. I love the way you've cut the sentiment into two flags. The problem is that I really don't get the whole cupcakes thing. I can see they are pretty but it's a trend that's been going for ages and I can't see why. That said, I have been told I'm not a proper girlie 'cos I hate shopping and don't buy shoes unless I need them. Maybe I'm missing the girlie gene?
Congrats winners and have a lovely Sunday all.

Hi Sue,
I'm with the other Alison I'm afraid in that the card is very pretty , but just don't do or understand the cupcake trend! For the life of me, I just don't understand the fuss over a little cake! Still, each to their own. Congratulations to the winners and looking forward to your shows today, already set recorder. Love to everyone, Alison xxx

iReneM said...

Oooh, a 'delicious' baby card.
Those cupcakes look good enough to eat.
It was so lovely to meet you yesterday, Sue.
ALL of your samples on the blog are an inspiration but they are even more amazing IRL. I wish I had taken more photo's.
I loved the demo's I was able to watch and wish I could have stayed all day but my dear aunty who is nearly 90 was coming to visit and I don't see her very often so had to get home.
I hope you will be at Colemans again real soon. So much stock sold out which proves you are very good for business, LOL
I have the faux quilled flower dies on order, which was just one of the dies that disappeared off the rack.

Well done, Sue, and thank you for your excellent, inspirational demo's.

Good afternoon Sue,

There seems to be two trains of thought so far as todays card is concerned, but I am definitely in the "love it" camp. This particular die would fit so many different occasions and the two things - cake and celebration that is - are natural soul mates, at least in this household they are. Thank you Sue for sharing this with us today and congratuations to all of todays winners. Hope you enjoy the rest of your day Sue.

This one is a bit on the cute side but not overly so and it is for a birth, so this one gets the thumbs up from me. The execution is as always superb.

Hello again!!
Yes all the ladies on the blog brought me fairy magic and good luck Thank you!! But Sue's flowers inspired me to be brave and go totally LILAC including elegant hat!! As I really love deep blues and purples, but too dark, but Lilac just seemed perfect!!

Tina hope all goes well next week.
Only 6 days now to Ally Pally looking forward to it enormously!!
The day is dull but somehow it is full of magic!!

A different look to this card and definitely girly too. Great looking cupcakes & the felt rose looks fab in the centre of the bow.

Helloooo Sue and all the wonderful wilsonettes! Ooooo, love it, love it, love it! It's a "sugar and spice and all things nice card". So so pretty and although it can be used for a lot of occasions, I love the baby born theme. Stunning Sue and could just "eat" it!! I'm recording your show so I'll be able to watch it soon. But what I saw of the string pearls package I'm chomping at the bit! Kitty, great news that you're going to be a grandma again! Shirley, "Happy 29th Birthday" wishes to you and that's a great idea of yours! Janet, have a great time in France knowing that you're back in time for the Wednesday card giveaway should put a spring in your step! Jackie, hope you enjoy the Blythe spirit show. Angela Lansbury is a great actress, bedknobs and broomsticks...what happy memories! Loved both films. We've booked to see Warhorse in October and can't wait. Cameeli, fantastic news that you've got an outfit! Wonderful! Congratulations to all the lucky winners too on the comment game. Wonderful! Enjoy your prizes! Take everyone, sending love and hugs to those who could do with one today xx Pam, thinking of you xx Love Karen xx

Hi Sue
WOW how adorable is this card I love cup cakes so sweet stunning love everything about it .. hugs sarah xxx

SusanP, Kent said...

This card is so pretty. The Justrite set is quite different from anything I've seen before and looks so versatile. I enjoyed your first hour on the Tool Shed (had to record the 2nd hour for later). No doubt everything will have sold out by the time I've made up my mind what I 'need'. You really excelled yourself with the variety of card samples.

SHARICA said...

Nice Bright sweet card today .. xx

Sheila - Ginger said...

Hi Sue,
Sorry I missed your dhow this morning but it was because I was at a Craft Show...I needed a thing or two so I just had to go...well it would have been rude to let my friend down! Lol! Today's card is just gorgeous and I love the colours and the new stamps too.

Love Sheila xx

Cathy Davidson said...

Hi Sue. Thanks for a lovely comical 2 hour show. You little madam, we all heard you regarding those 'pesky' flakes -do it do it lol !
How lovely of you to acknowledge Shirley T's birthday she will feel so honoured I bet just hope she hit the red button before going out to lunch !
So lovely to hear familiar names and congrats to you winners : )
Taping 5pm show and miffed as Im missing so much help - Ive tried, but I just cant listen to DB undermining brilliance and art when her projects dont seem to have moved on from her early days. Sorry dont mean to be rude, but it seems my feelings are shared by many friends here.
Your demo's were truly amazing Sue. Thank you xxx
So lovely to hear Pam and Nick's email.

Love you all.
Lancashire Steph xxx

Hi Sue

Saw most of the shows, Sue - really loved the plum card with the mulled wine gilding flakes and thanks for all the lovely samples and new tips (liked the squiggly doodles - shades of Jason Pollock!)

'P' in Wales

SO glad you have The Outfit, Cameeli, and that it was a great shopping experience - eventually. You'll be a vision in lilac.
Happy birthday, Shirley T - good that you had a shout out from Sue and agree with Steph - lovely to hear lots of our blog friends mentioned - inc Steph and Lindsay, Pam and Nick and lots more.

Myra P said...

Hi Sue
Hi Everyone,
Ooh Sue, what a cute card! I dont usually like overly cute cards but this is lovely! I loved yesterday's so much I bought the stamp! When the Bailiffs come for the piano it will be all your fault!
Happy Birthday Shirley! I like your style!
Cameeli , so pleased you got a lovely lilac outfit and and an enjoyable experience into the bargain!
Have seen small part of Toolshed! Dean is hilarious but I thought the Wilson Twosome worked very well!
You look great Sue.
Congratulations to all the winners today and to yesterday's winner - I forgot to say that yesterday! Grandchildren and co just left and I'm a little tired!
Love to all,

Unknown said...

Hi Sue, love the card. Unfortunately I didn't get to see the shows today. Got new computer and having lots of trouble with it, am near tempted to see if I could get my old one fixed. Thought it wasn't worth it as it is 9 year old, but having second thoughts. Rant over. Hopefully it will let me on tomorrow.

Glenharon said...

Good evening Sue,
A beautiful card that can be for many occassions not just to introduce a beautiful new life to the world. Since more brides are now having cupcakes wedding cakes instead of the traditional 3 teir it would be.
Oh how i did enjoy your show with Dean today as he is almost like a cheeky little boy who is always upto mischief. It always seems such along time between your visits to our screens. I know that we are so very, very lucky to have you doing your videos and that you must think us greedy for wanting more of you, but you have a style like no other. Thats me got my recordings to keep me going until your next screen appearence.
Happy birthday Shirley, i hope you have had a terrific day. Well done to all our winners this week, enjoy your prize.
Cameeli i am so very pleased you have found you perfect wedding outfit just waiting for you to step in to it, now you will look a picture like our other gorgeous wedding mums.
See you all tomorrow hopefully,
love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Unknown said...

loved todays cards, here and on the show. I hope you managed to sell DB a leaf die, she obviously likes them.
Are we going to manage a "mother of the bride" photo gallery. It would be lovely to see the up coming wedding pictures.

Thoroughly enjoyed all of your shows on Create and Craft today. I recorded them all and just finished watching the last one. I like to wait until everyone has gone to bed before settling down to watch, so that there are no distractions. Absolutely Brilliant! :-)

Sandy H said...

Very cute. I wouldn't have thought of using cupcakes for a new baby card - senior moment when I looked for the third flag saying "Thing".

Glad you've found your perfect outfit Carmeeli. Now you can relax and enjoy the build-up to the big day. Hope you had a fantastic birthday Shirley. Crafty hugs to Pam.

Wonderful Tool Shed show today. Thank you for all the demos and tips.

Congratulations to all the lucky winners.
