Just Wanted To Say Hi

 Good Sunday morning all!  I hope everyone has had a good week and is enjoying a relaxing (crafty) Sunday!  It's my Mom's birthday today but I can't share her card as I have used some of my second release dies for it!  However,  I'm happy to share today's card as it shows yet another way to use your Classic Rose die set!  Working from the back, I used the Quilted Flower embossing folder and inked the negative side with Aqua Adirondack ink to letterpress my coconut white card.  Once I got it inked evenly, I lightly spritzed it with water to reactivate the ink a bit, then ran my white card through.  The ink transferred to the floor of the design giving it a soft aqua hue.  For the focal element, I used the Floral Lace Background and stamped it on Aqua card using a Clear Perfect Medium pad.  I heat embossed the image with white detail powder.  I matted it with a thin white and black mat and black seam binding around the opposite corners.  I added foam to the back for dimension before attaching it to my letterpressed background piece.  For my sentiment frame, I used the Ribbons and Swags stamp in black, cut it out with Vintage Labels seven and inked through it with Aqua ink.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out vertically with a smaller Labels Seven die.  I inked it as well with aqua before removing it.  I tied a messy bow out of black seam binding and added it to the lower corner.  Using the Classic Rose die, I cut several of various sizes and inked the edges with aqua ink then snipped into them at each of the inward scallop areas.  Using a flower shaping tool, I shaped each of the petals to give them a rounded appearance before stacking them up and offsetting them.  This gives a Camellia appearance to the flowers when you leave them open like this.  I added a small Dazzler to the centre of the largest one and used flatback pearls in the middle of the four smaller flowers.  I seated the large flower on my bow with some Bakers Twine.  I made some matching stick pins by gluing my beads to the Creative Expressions blank pins with Glossy Accents and allowing them to dry well.  I finished the card with a pierced white mat, a thin black mat and a final white mat layer.  Finished dimensions are 7" x 8 1/2" in size.

A quick message before I get to the Sunday Comment Game winners.  I am part of the Creative Expressions team and only use their products exclusively.  I do not endorse other companies products and for that reason,  find it difficult to have comments left on the blog suggesting them to others to buy.  I ask that you please understand and respect the fact that I may have to delete those comments from time to time as I would not want others to think that I am endorsing products other than the ones that I personally use.  I haven't a problem with anyone that wants to leave a comment suggesting any of the Creative Expressions products.  I am also more than happy to answer any questions that I may have missed in a blog post if you email me directly.

Now on to the winners and there are lots of them this week!  They are:

Good morning Sue and all the crafty crew!!
A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY JILL !!!!

I just adore this card and love the c classic rose!!

Just adding the ribbon and a tiny butterfly to the table names and I have completed them. I am not sure why but I grossly underestimated how long it take me to make them!!

Have seen shoes and will pick them up later today. Its been a bit like Cinderella!! Just hope these will fit.
Thank you for all the kind wishes and advice.

Hugs to Pam, Norah, Janet, Steph, Mrs B, Sandra. I hope you all enjoy the day.

What a beautiful way to start this Sunday morning. A truly elegant and very classy gift along with the most gorgeous colour scheme.
There isn't anything on today's gift that I do not love and I defy anyone not to like such a gift coming through their letterbox.

May I please use today's gift to say Hi and Happy Birthday to your Mom. Hope you have a wonderful day; first at your breakfast club and then the rest of the day with your beautiful daughter and the rest of your family.

Hope you don't mind that little paragraph Sue but it is a special day.

Take care everyone and see you tomorrow.

HAPPY 91st BIRTHDAY JILL :))
Wishing you a wonderful day with Sue and the rest of your family and friends:)
Sue, Fantastic card :) I love the aqua colouring, it is such a delicate colour but it has some depth too! Oh, I know what I mean but I just can't find the words this morning! Great how the rose die can look different, they are beautiful. The very thin black mat does make a difference too doesn't it, I have started using one much more than I used to. My goodness you have got a lot of cards to send out!
Congratulations to all of the lucky winners:)
Sending Pam her Good Morning x
A hug for all in need.

Have a great day with your Mom Sue, we are looking forward to some pics:) Take care.

Hi Sue
FIRSTLY I'D LIKE TO WISH YOUR MUM A HAPPY 91ST BIRTHDAY. ENJOY YOUR DAY WITH YOUR FANTASTIC DAUGHTER AND FRIENDS.

another stunning card today Sue. Must try the letterpress technique, my first try turned out rather a mess. Perhaps because I added the ink directly from a pad. I have the quilted flower embossing folder, and have ordered the rest. Will try the flowers as well. I'm not to good at making flowers so thanks for the extra tutorial. Nearly forgot congratulations to all the winners. What a lot their are this week.

Jacquie said...

I've always been a bit scared of trying this technique but it looks so good I'll just have to give it a go. Can't believe I'm one of the lucky winners - thank you -I'm so excited. Please wish your Mum a vey happy and enjoyable birthday and I hope you all have a lovely day.

Hi Sue. Firstly I would just like to say a BIG HAPPY 91ST BIRTHDAY to your Special Mum, Jill !!!!! ( All Mums are special !!) I hope you all have a wonderful time with your family and friends. Lots of love and hugs, Tres x x x

Sue, This card is amazing !! Just when I think you have made the best card I have ever seen, then you go and make another, just as stunning. I so wish I had some of your creative talent !! I really LOVE this Aqua colour and have been trying to get hold of the Aqua Foundations cardstock. I will keep trying, because for me, personally it is a must have. Your quilted flower embossing folder looks fab, and I love the look you have created with the letter press technique. Another item for my wish list. It is just beautiful. I never realised how pretty it was !! The Lacey background stamp with white embossing looks gorgeous. More beautiful focal dies and my new favourite Classic Rose dies !! ( Except for the Cordoba dies which I just adore !!)
I love what you have done with the Classic Roses, they are gorgeous, and such a beautiful finishing touch to this card. Beautiful stick pins too. A truly beautiful card today Sue. Thank you so much for sharing this one with us. X x x
Congrats to all of today's winners. There are so many. X x x
Cameeli, good luck with your shoes x x x
Steph, good luck with Market day today. I hope all goes well for you. X x x

Hi Sue - really pretty card and love the lacy background stamp. I have white embossing powder but must get some of your true white as it looks much whiter than mine. Love the aqua shade too.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU JILL ON TODAY YOUR 91ST. I hope that you enjoy today with your family and friends and have the best day ever.

What a beautiful card you have made for us today Sue. I know that you love black in your cards and this one gets my vote. I normally find black a bit over whelming but done like you have today is just hitting the right balance for me to give it that wee bit va va voom. So many supplies used that i must admit i had lost the thread have way, sorry.
Oh it started out as one of those days today with me setting the alarm last night for 6:20 to get hubby up for his work as it was "Tuesday" and woke my son up at 7:30 for school. I had lost 2 days some how, so after being shouted at by hubby that it was his day off, i went back to bed to recover.
Cameeli i am sure they are just waiting for you to slide your foot into for the perfect fit. I think that with everything that you have been doing i think you need a spa day to relax before the last week off bedlam starts. Have a good day out today anyway flower.
Oh boy have i had fun this morning looking at all the different parts of the world that our Wilsonettes come from. We have all Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales as well as USA, Faroe Islands, Spain and France joining in, thank you everyone for giving us that little bit of knowledge as it is so nice to see where everyone is living and so great for Sue to see her talent is so very much appreciated across the world literally. IF those horrible black clouds disappear from over me then we have a lovely day here at Glenochil in the Wee County, but it looks like they are here to stay somehow.
Happy Birthday to Karen(JazzyLady) and CraftyCJ's mums 70th birthday. I hope that both ladies and anyone else who is having a birthday this weekend has a lovely on with their most special people.
Congratulations to ALL our winners this week as i know your minds are telling you "no it's not you" but yes it is and i hope you enjoy your prize when it arrives.
Have a great day everyone where ever you are,
Love and crafty hugs to all my wonderful Wilsonette friends,
Norah (Glenochil)

Hi Sue, please wish your mum Many Happy Returns from me and I hope you both have a lovely day.

Maureen Killen said...

Good afternoon,

Happy Birthday to your mum and I expect you will both be going to the Breakfast Café to meet up with her friends and have good food and a gossip! Your card is lovely, Sue. I adore the colours and the design.

This is a message for Julie Laz. I ordered the dies from C&C straight away, and am still awaiting delivery.

This is a tip for Tracy Stilt. Whenever a parcel comes from C&C I tell my husband that I've ordered something for a friend whose internet package limits her use and she can't log in. He can't use a computer - so I'm safe.

Congratulations to all the winners - lucky people.

From a very rainy and very cool Tyne and Wear x

Hello from sunny Blackpool, well at the moment. It keeps popping in and out lol, but at least it's dry.
Hope you are having a wonderful day with your Mum. 91 years young wow.
You have made a lot of lucky people very happy today. Hope they all enjoy their prize as much as I have from a weeks ago.
I absolutely love the colours you have used in this card as well as the techniques. I should get a lot braver with ink than I currently do. It may sound silly to some but im a bit of a perfectionist so need to build my confidence up.
Thank you as usual for sharing such a lovely card and I'm very excited to know you have a second launch in the pipeline although I would like to have more of this launch first. Again I need a lottery win haha.
Lots of love to you, you Mum and all of your like minded followers. Have a happy Sunday, Jo xx
