Sneak Peek

 Hello crafters!  I had an absolute blast at Ally Pally Sat. and Sunday and it was so nice to finally meet so many of you that leave me such lovely comments daily!  I am hoping that some of you that took pictures will email them to me so I can post them on the blog (hint, hint)  later in the week.  I managed to get home and get all the drawings done and caught up from the weekend, but the rest will have to wait until Tuesday or Wed.  For today, I thought I would show you a sneak peek at one of the cards from my wedding show this evening.  It is only an hour this evening but Create and Craft have extended freeview hours so my show will be able to be seen at 9pm tonight.  Now I have never done a wedding show, but I have always wanted to so they have kindly allowed me.  The show is geared mostly towards those individuals that make wedding invites, cards, stationery etc, however as you can see from this sample, that I have also included some cards that you may just want to make if you are going to someones wedding as well.  I had this pretty pearly paper in my stash for ages and I pulled it out for this card.  For the background of the card, I embossed some detail into the paper using the Tracery mask.  For the bottom portion of the background, I used the reverse side of the paper and added a thin strip of the striped patter.  I used one of the edgeability edges and inserts to create a border between them.  I added flatback pearls to the border as accents.    I cut several simple ovals for my focal element.  I stamped the wedding cake on milk card, coloured it with pale blue and silver mica powders and cut it out and mounted it up on the ovals.  I used the Blossom Five die set to create the pretty roses and added a spray of them along the side of the oval with some cream jute.  I tipped the flowers in the matching mica powder by swiping a clear perfect medium across the tops and edges of the petals, then dusting them with the mica.  I stamped my sentiment and embossed it in silver.  I cut it out with the Fancy Framed Tags Two dies and added it to the bottom of the card with foam pieces.  A double pierced milk mat was added to finish the card.  Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8" in size.  I do hope you can join me for the show this evening and Tuesday morning at 10.

Thank you for your patience in announcing all the winners this week.  The first announcement is for the Wednesday Card Giveaway.
This week's winner is:   Yvonne May!!!

Vick said...

Morning Sue,

I do like the blue and white as a change for a wedding card, I have a stamp that i got from JOanna Sheen very similar to this so i may play with that to see what i can get with the dies too, as i had this stamp years before there were dies on the market! I do find it great to sometimes review older stamps as i for one forget what i have and you have just reminded me, hugs to you sweetie and my tv is on to record tonight, hugs, Vick xxx

morning Sue
What a beautiful gift for the bride and groom.
I'm so cross that I haven't a wedding coming up in the near future so I cannot find anyone to send today's gift to (perhaps I'll just make one and keep it lol).
So So pleased that you all had a good time this week-end and that you managed to meet Sue. Meeting Sue is one of my all time wishes. Perhaps one day. Good luck for today Sue and after today perhaps you will be able to get a little R&R.
Congratulations to all the lucky winners.
Take care and see you tomorrow.

Alison Couchman said...

A gorgeous wedding card today. I never find any in the shops that are 'enough' to mark such an occasion but this would make the couple feel very special.

Have been away for a few days with my big sis while she got some biopsy results. Thankfully all is well so it is lovelier to be back than usual - such a relief!
Congratulations to the winners.

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
oh what a lovely, lovely card you made, so glad you are sharing this with us.
The mask looks stunning, and I just love all the flowers, the topper and the clever way you added even more interest (by way of contrast) at the bottom. And that bow is cute!
Can't wait to watch your show tonight, I'm sure I shall enjoy your creativity even if a wedding show is not something I usually watch (not likely to do invites, order of service and all that malarkey.)
So glad you've got the SEARCH facility back, it's marvellous. Wonder whether many other people make use of it when wanting to look at specific cards (wedding, white, Christmas etc)
Congrats to the lucky winners.
Hugs, Rose

GM Sue - great card - yes I will be watching on Freeview tonight - about time C&C transmitted later ALL the time me thinks rather than just ocassionally and normally stopping transmission at 6pm. End of rant.

I haven't had the need to make a wedding card since I started crafting - we are quite a small family and most that will get married already are, and hopefully they will stay that way.

I felt absolutely shaterred yday morning after visiting AP on Saturday but I feel OK today - think the travelling sapped my energy levels - we were travelling for about 6 hours in total but it was worth it and we would do it again although perhaps with a day of rest beforehand in future!

Look forward to seing you on the TV tonight - where do you get your energy from? I want/need some.

Regards to all

Dear Sue What a wonderful card and love the colour combo! I was at Ally Pally yesterday and loved it!

Cannot wait for today's show. Well done for all the winners. Take Care Love Michelle S xxx

Cameeli, if only we did, you would be such a giggle, I can imagine that you would lift anyone's spirit! (I still can't believe you bought an EBosser though)!
Hugs to all that need one,
I am waving my two youngest off on their first Duke of Edinburgh trip today, their ruck sacks are bigger than them, it will be an anxious couple of days!

karenlotty said...

Beautiful wedding card Sue I'm into wedding cards that don't feature brides and grooms as many ceremonies these days are civil ceremonies In other words the bride is not in the trad dress & veil Are you still going to be using the Filigree delights dies later as mentioned? I had a great day at Ally Pally I spent far too much money! Life's too short to worry! Got to record show - teaching Salsa tonight

Victoria said...

How wonderful - because I've got a wedding card to make today! I've got a similar stamp so will use this lovely card as inspiration. Thank you Sue.

Morning Sue and Wilsonettes. Oooo hang on ... Is it a bird ? Is it a paper arrow with a message ? Is it Superman after all ? NO its Sue Wilson, superwoman ! Looking rather dazed and lost not knowing quite where she's due next - home, Peterborough or USA ? Wow Sue, if you bottled your energy you'd be a billionaire !!! Think we all need some. Im buzzin after reading all the reports of AP and adrenilin pumping and not even there : ( I must say Im so chuffed for TRES, you little darlin, after thinking you'd go home feeling deflated after not meeting Sue your dream came true, you must have felt on a high. To all other lucky Wilsonettes that got there im thrilled for you all, not only as you met each other, that you had a wonderful time with Sue, shouldnt envy you, but maybe slightly.

I have to finish this later as we have a long drive to Leeds as its my clinic day with my Rheumatologist and if we get caught up in motorway traffic then I will be late, so will catch up later. In the meantime, try and enjoy the sun (Cassie will be joining us as there is a big park near the hospital) she's not been left yet (another story) so while Im being picked and poked and turned inside out some lucky hound will be having big fun !
Love and leave for now.

Hi Sue
Sounds like Ally Pally was a great success.
I think you made Brenda (Lello's) day when you turned and recognised her! Lovely memory for you Brenda.
I'm sure all Wilsonettes enjoyed seeing you up close and personal!
Back to today - lovely card, as usual.
Looking forward to tonight to watch you on C&C.
(Sorry to mention, but I note Heartfelt is on today - such superb viewing) - shame I have to do a days work first!!

Lindsay Martin said...

Lovely card, with a good colour choice today Sue, as others have said where do you get your energy from, I'm exhausted just thinking about your schedule at the moment. Well done to all the ladies who managed to get to see the wonderful lady herself, will have to drag her to the midlands to do a show, how about it Sue? Also congratulations to Yvonne for winning the card and all this weeks other winners. So pleased your day wasn't too bad Pam and Carol, and that all our well wishes worked a little to help you both through. Steph I hope all goes well today and the hound enjoys his run, Alison such good news for your mother, certainly a celebration moment for you. Norah and Lynne, hope you are both ok, will try and pop back later for my daily dose from you both, hope those furbabies have been doing their jobs in keeping you laughing Lynne. Still no foals, I even checked in the night as one is looking very ready, will bring her in tonight as I can keep an eye from my bed using cameras which is less stressful for them and warmer for me! Take care all off out to teach some poor child the art of staying on a horse. Love and keep well all Wilsonettes xx

Good afternoon Sue- or I think I should be saying Superwoman.

Reading the comments everyone seemed to have such a good time at AP and I am hoping maybe I will be strong enough to go later in the year.

I love todays card and as I have had my Mum to stay this weekend (I love her dearly but!!) I still need to make a wedding card.

Congrats to todays winners. Pam I hope this 'first' wasn't too awful and you can go forward with your life with happy memories of your darling Tim.
Rosemarie hope the wedding was all you wished it to be and you enjoyed the day.

Sue I am out tonight but I have already set the box to record. Please can you bottle your energy and send it out. Thanks. Love and hugs to all who are in need. Take care Helen xx

Alison, so glad your sister had good results, you can now breath easier now.

SusanP, Kent said...

Lovely paper made even more interesting with the gorgeous texture from the tracery mask! A fabulous card. Just one question - why don't my Blossom five flowers EVER look as good as yours?

Lynne Mills said...

Hi Sue, gorgeous card, I can't wait for your show tonight. I have already told hubby that from 9-10pm the telly is mine. Hope you will be able to rest up at some point this week after your weekend at AP and before your weekender at C&C. lol lynne m x x x
Yorkielass & Lynda - thanks I am feeling better.
Lindsay - thought for sure the foal would have put an appearance in by now. Hobnail boots no longer doing a tap dance more of a shuffle. Pesky poochies have been their usual idle selves today, hubby cut the back garden grass yesterday and they believe that I really want them to bring in the grass cuttings they can reach from the bag containing garden waste waiting for day to put out for collection. I love them to bits but the hoover will soon start smoking with the constant use its getting. But I will get my own back as they will have to be bathed as their fur is turning a lovely shade of green!!!!!!!!! lol

Lovely card as usual. I shall be watching but on the PC as Freeview stops at 6pm. You'll find they have extended 'live' hours not freeview hours. I hope I'm wrong though!

Joan D said...

Lovely card and superb colours too. I don't think I'll be able to watch the show on freeview as it now finishes at 6. Disappointed as I shall be out and can't record it. Xxx

Rosemarie, so pleased your daughters day was as beautiful as you wished for, was thinking of you (your next Tina) and you will be fine, so proud : )
To all our 'family' who have birthdays, celebrations for good news etc go celebrate hard : ) to our Wilsonettes who are not so good, gentle hugs to you. My hospital appointment got my Consultant filling in an 'to be admitted form' great !!! I have NO time, I cant waste time lazing about on a hospital ward I just cant, not yet !!!
Well, I must get sorted so I can sit and relax and watch our wonderful Sue demo her W.O.W's for us, cant wait, as for todays card, any new bride and groom would cherish this magnificent work of art.

Margaret corgi owner said...

Hi Sue
Such a rich and beautiful card love the colours and oh how I wish I could get my stamping to look half as good as yours.

Sandra your boys will have a fantastic time try not to worry they will be fine, and well done to them for doing their D of E I can still remember doing mine many moons ago! lol

Rosemarie delighted to know all went so well, you will have very special and wonderful memories for years to come.

Pam so pleased you found the strength to face yesterday, Tim will be so proud as he watches over you. You are one strong and very brave lady.

Hope all goes well for you today Steph, take care lovely lady.

Delighted to hear everyone who were lucky enough to be at AP had a fantastic time. Sincerely hope it was a great success for you Sue, it is the least you deserve after all your hard work.

Tina try and stay calm all will be well on Friday after all your hard work and planning it is bound to be fine. Keep calm and enjoy every minute and accept all the lovely compliments you will be getting too. If you are nervous you will miss all those lovely little memories that only a mum notices, they are yours to treasure forever. You will have all your family with you, draw on their calm and strength you will be fine. Take a deep breath or two, I know you can do it. You are in my prayers, I will be thinking of you.

Warm wishes and hugs to all who need them at this time.
