Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

Morning all!  Think lilac, gold and white for today's card because try as I might, I couldn't get the card to really show the true colour very well.  It is one of my favourites from the past weekend's shows though, so first up on offer for the weekly giveaway.  I started by embossing vellum with my new Art Deco Fanfare embossing folder.  Although the pattern actually goes the other way, I ended up using it in this direction, which gives it a completely different look.  I glued it atop a piece of soft gold card for my outer background and added flatback pearls to the corners.  Next I stamped the Floral Lace background by Justrite using a clear Perfect Medium pad on to lilac card.  I heat embossed with with Gold Detail Powder.  I covered it with a sticky adhesive sheet and coated it with (my much loved) Iced Snow.  I matted it with a thin soft gold mat and added it to the background with mounting foam.  I stamped the label from The Baking Label stamp set by Justrite on coconut white card and heat embossed it with gold as well.  I cut it out with the matching vintage tag die and before removing it, I inked it with Shaded Lilac distress ink.  I stamped my sentiment (from the Stitched Flower set) and cut it out with a small die in the Vintage Labels Seven die set.  I inked through the die with Shaded Lilac again.  I used the new Tranquil Moments die set and cut it out of coconut white card and layered my sentiment and tag on it with foam and added it to the centre of the card.  Using the Classic Rose die, I made a flower out of coconut white card, inked it lightly with Shaded Lilac, then sugared it with Iced snow.  I cut some Faux Quilled Leaves out of soft gold and cut them apart and added them around my flower with I seated upon some gold tulle on the card.  I made matching stick pins to finish the embellishment.  A double white mat with Cosmic Shimmer white PVA glue dots were added completed the entire card.  It's a stunner in real life, shame my pics aren't able to do it justice! 

 If you would like to be included in the drawing to win this one, just leave me a comment.  I usually post the winners name on Saturday's post, but I will be away at Ally Pally all weekend, so both the card winner and the Comment Game winners will be posted on Monday's blog post this week.  

I have been getting a few emails asking how to leave comments, so I have put up an explanation on the right side of the blog! 
 The finished dimensions are 7" x 8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue,

Elegant and stunning card Sue, love it. Thank you.

I've been so busy these last couple of days that I haven't had time to thank all you ladies for the good wishes on my birthday last Sunday. I was going to name you all but there were too many, so you know who you are and thank you sooooooo much.

Well Sue, I couldn't believe my ears when you wished me happy birthday on the tele. I watched your show late on Sunday night and it rounded a really lovely day off - so once again thank you very much. Everyone is so kind and makes you feel special.

Much love,

Shirley T. xxxxxxxxxx

Morning Sue and all SW bloggers! This card is divine, Sue, so elegant and beautiful. The ef pattern sideways does, as you say, give a lovely different effect. I have it and not used it yet, it's on my desk waiting... and the Faux Quilled Leaves are gorgeous.
Cameeli, soooo happy that your partner's little op went well :-)
Happy Wednesday to everyone, weekend creeping closer and closer, yay!

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue from a beautiful sunny but cold morning in Burgundy.
What a beautiful gift to start my first spring morning here.
I love your colour scheme for today and your dies look gorgeous.
I managed to order your new emboss folders and the two paper packs on Sunday so hopefully they will be waiting for me when I get back to the UK.
No crafting today have to go food shopping and as the supermarket is 45ks away (90k journey)it takes nearly all day.
See you all tomorrow.

GM Sue - ohh I do love this and those leaves are wowee!

Wilsonettes - can anyone out there advise which train station is best to get to AP on Saturday - Alexanra Palace train staiton or Wood Green Underground? the directions on the website say buses run for both every 15 mins but when do the buses start running? is it walkable from either station I am wondering?..

Are we still thinking of meeting for 10ish at the Rubbernecker stand to see our idol?..

Alison Couchman said...

A truly 'Sue' style card. I love all the various styles you make but this is in your signature style. Just gorgeous and I'd love to win it.

Carol W - you can use either station. In my opinion it's not walkable unless you are used to long walks. I'd use Wood Green tube as I always found the trains less frequent from Ally Pally station. Mind you, I am talking from the point of a few years ago when I lived around that area. Might be different now - p'raps someone else can help.

Lynne Mills said...

Hi Sue, yet another fabulous card. Love the use of vellum for the background. Thought I was ok as stomach bug eased up but now back in bed as really bad with neuralgia to left side of head making it so painful to move my head. Looks like I will have to miss Ally Pally this time as it can take up to 2 weeks before the pain lessens. Oh well there is always next time. Hope everyone who manages to get to AP has a great time. Hope to see you sometime soon Sue. Love to all lynne m & fur babies x x x
Still sending hugs to Pam
So pleased everything went ok for your partner Cameeli x x x

Absolutely stunning card Sue, this one really stood out for me on the show. This isn't just a card, it's a mini masterpiece! Can you imagine how special you would feel if someone gave this to you on your birthday and said they had created it just for you.
I'm having a craft play day today and I'm going to try the Fire & Ice technique for the first time using one of the Justrite background stamps.
Thanks for sharing all your ideas with us Sue.

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
Another stunning card Sue that you have brought us today. Everything is so beautiful about it, the colours look so right with each other and with the vellum giving it that delicate touch to it. Hope you have a great time at A.P. this weekend Sue and that you get to meet a lot of our very special friends from here. It will be nice for you finally to meet some of us that you read each day, although where you get the time to read our comments i really don't know. Have you managed to find away of getting 30 hours into a 24 hour day? Have a great time everyone that is going, but really sorry that Lynne you are not going to make it because of your neuralgia flaring up as it is a very painful annoyance that you can well do without. I have my fingers crossed that it will subside sooner rather than later for you.
Cameeli, so glad to read that everything went well yesterday for your partner and that with some time and tlc she is going to come through stronger.
Shirley, everyone on this blog and you started it off is special and a family that we are honoured to be a part of, so i am glad that your birthday was a good one and that small touch that we could do made it special for you. I know that the special people on this blog make everyday a better day for me and a lot of others. Reading that someone is thinking of you when you are feeling at your lowest, i find such a special thing and one that i truly appreciate, but as i said, that is because this blog is filled to the brim with the loveliest people on earth.
Hubby left my washing out last night because according to him it was going to be sunny! Well it's now even wetter than it came out the washing machine, and it was almost dry last night. MEN. Always know everything. The weather forecast that i seen said it was going to be showery in the West but since it was coming across us on their map, i wouldn't leave it out. Well it can stay there as i haven't the energy nor the strength to get the arms up to take it off the line or lift the basket in. See you all tomorrow hopefully,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Hello Sue, WOW this card is so beautiful, love the opulence of the soft gold card and the delicate leaves. The whole card is scrummy. Someone is going to be very lucky on Monday. Wish I was going to Ally Pall, maybe next time.

I was beside myself when I was playing it back and it just finished as you were finishing the first card! So happy my friend had it still, the only thing is I can't keep it! See you Sunday at Ally Pally, so looking forward to it, much love Janet x

Hi Sue
Another stunning card today. Must try gold with purple and white, my favourite colours. Shame the second two pictures haven't loaded on my computer. Very odd as the ones below them have. Mind you I had the same problem with Julia's pictures as well. I do love the Art Deco folder you've used Sue, your new embossing folders are gorgeous. must try them on vellum to use as a background. I do this sometimes but only for small cards. love the stamps used as well. Glad that your partners biopsy went well Cameeli. Hope it's good news next week. Hugs to Pam, and hope your washing dries today Norah. Hope your feeling well today Steph as well.

Glad all went well for your partner Cameeli and the results are sound brighter this morning Norah so hope you are feeling a bit better. Hugs to all xo

iReneM said...

WOW!! this is absolutely stunning, Sue.

I didn't get the fanfare EF on Saturday much as I'd have liked to...but I have made my version of one of your Saturday samples with my new purchases, using the letterpress technique with the quilted flower EF covered with iced snow and one of your delicious crystal sparklers.

Hello to Delia :) Maybe I'll see you when you visit Colemans again.

Hi Sue,
Hi Everyone,
What a beautiful card Sue. I know they are all lovely but I have really fallen for this one! Again it's lovely to see lilac with gold! I've always put it with silver! It looks so rich.
My cascading feathers stamp came yesterday! It's beautiful. I purchased it on its own as I didn't want the set.

Shirley so pleased you had a lovely birthday ! I think we were all chuffed when Sue wished you a Happy Birthday!
Alimecca can sympathise with the migraine - like your name " spaced out" for the day after. I say - I'm better - just not all here yet" . Get well sonn.
Lynne so sorry about the neuralgia ! That is an awful pain according to the medics! So sorry you missing Ally Pally but just keep warm and get well soon.
Looking forward to hearing about all the Weddings!
Love Myra.

Stunning card as always and not a colour combo I would have thought to use ie lilac with soft gold but looks good to me xx GailT xx

Cameeli of Richomnd said...

Hi Clare W and for anyone who needs to get to Ally Pally by public transport see below!!
I will be ther all being well at 10 am.

By Tube

Wood Green is the nearest underground station on the Piccadilly Line. (journey time is 20 minutes from Piccadilly Circus). Exit Wood Green Station and go to bus stop A to pick up the W3 bus up the hill to Alexandra Palace.

By Rail

Alexandra Palace has its own British Rail Station, fittingly called Alexandra Palace Station. It is located at the Wood Green entrance to the Park. A regular train service runs direct from Moorgate (weekdays only) or from Kings Cross, changing at Finsbury Park.

By Bus

Take the W3 bus or shuttle from outside the station to the main Palm Court entrance. Some shows offer a free shuttle bus service from both Wood Green and Alexandra Palace stations check on the page of your event to find out more.
Hope that helps

Cameeli xx

Hope your house move goes without too much stress CraftySue (hope ALL your craft boxes are marked up well and safe) with a stiff warning that should anything get wrecked the culprit has to pay double the cost so you can christen your new craft space with new Sue products : )
Alison- how did the craft show go the weekend ? We cant wait to hear/read !
Julie - glad you got some help from our family here I must admit I was thinking of emailing a card but Im just not that confident with what I do (sorry love) but Im so pleased your stress levels were lowered by some lovely ladies xx

Well, what an awful night - up 5 times, pacing feeling like Id had a rib torn out and sewn to my hip ! Now, Ive never had a rib torn out so how would I know how that feels !? I dont, just my gruesome imagination on how it may feel ! Im so shattered my eyes look like the 'paved effect' lol
WOW - I ooooo'd and arrrrr'd over this card on Sunday, its SO pretty and delicate and good luck to all : )
Keeping my fingers crossed for our FIRST MOTB this Friday, we will all close our eyes and wish hard for a beautiful day a BIG Wilsonette Wish : )

Brenda Lello said...

Hello Sue,
Lovely lilac with the gold it all looks so rich. I would love to give this card at home it would be truly cherishd.
Been having internet problems these last few days so haven't been able to blog, we are staying at our younger daughters taking care of grandchildren, there are not many places in this house you can get a good Internet connection hopefully today I found one!
Looking forward to Alley Pally on Saturday hope to meet lots of our 'family'
Take care, love Brenda

Clare W - I go to Wood Green tube station and you just have to cross the junction and get the free bus to Alley Pally. I hope this is helpful
Steph - I feel for you - wish there was something we could do help LOL
Nora - the sun is shining here send your washing round and I will take it out for you!
Cameeli - I am so glad you and your partner got through yesterday and just think positive you got so much to look forward to, when I was in your position a MacMillan nurse told me to focus on the future, that is some years ago and it really helped,

Vanessa Lee said...

Hi Sue
What a joy it is to sit and read the blogs each day, I feel that I know so many people. Each day brings such a mix of news. Pleased to hear Cameeli's news and sorry to hear some are still suffering and having to miss the show. As always the card is beautiful. I spent the evening trying out yesterday's video with some of the dies I already had, pleased with the result. I do so enjoy the video each week. Thanks again Sue. Best wishes to all in the give-away

What a fabulous card today Sue. Oh how I would like to win this.
I have just been watching my recorded programmes from Sunday - phew, that Dean is fun but he could talk the hind leg off a Donkey!
Great demos and cards.
I treated myself to the beautiful Cascading Ferns stamp and the Home Bakery stamps and dies(with Christmas pressies in mind)Didn't get them from C&C though, I found a better deal elsewhere.

Loved this one when I saw it on the show, such great colours.
Keep going Pam you're doing well. Sorry to hear you're not well at the moment Lynne and are going to miss the show, Steph take things easy and pop that rib back in the cage;-) Rosemarie the weekend is looking good for nice weather, bound to be good on Friday as it's normally great for my birthday! Still no foals here but have a very happy and relieved daughter as she has passed her skills tests in literacy and numeracy so is one step closer to getting her primary teaching course done and into employment. Keep well all and those who are not so good today keep warm and look after yourselves xx

Hi Sue, and lovely blog friends.

What a stunner of a card today,it's pure sophistication.

Cameeli, I'm glad everything went well yesterday for your partner, we will all keep our fingers crossed for a good result.

Norah, sorry you are not feeling good today, if I lived nearer I would come and wring a few things out for you. X

Steph, you sound as if you are in a lot of pain, sounds awful. I hope you can have lots of 40 winks today. If the pain will let you. Sending you big hugs X

Very pretty, rich and elegant card today.
Wish I lived nearer and could get to Ally Pally but just too far away up here in Lanarkshire. We have the Ross Papercraft Show and the Sincerely Yours shows coming up in Edinburgh soon.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW, WOW, WOW !!! Sue this card is absolutely gorgeous !! I really love everything about it !! I have never tried lilac, white and gold card together, but I will now !! It looks great with the gold embossing powder too. I really love that new background stamp from Justrite and I have added it to my big long wish list. I have really taken a shine to the new vintage tag dies to. Your Art Deco folder looks fab, especially with the Vellum. ( I really must use Vellum more often with my cards.) I think it gives the card such a lovely delicate feel to it. I love the sentiment and the stitched flower stamps are also on my wish list as I love their funky, fun, whimsical look and I love buttons to !! Your stick pins are fab and your rose, quilled leaves and gold tulle finish this card to perfection. I would Sooo love the chance to win this gorgeous card Sue.
I am sorry I could not comment yesterday but our internet connection went down for a whole day. I finally got to see your video from yesterday and as usual it is totally fab !! The card you made was fab to and now I need some more beautiful Sue Wilson dies !! They are such "must have" dies. I also loved your beautiful Squirrel card to and I loved the scribble, dribble glue technique. I saw you demo it on c+c with Dean and it looks like a lot of fun. I will have to try it when my teenage step daughter comes to visit. We always have a good laugh when we attempt new crafty techniques together !!
Well I only missed one day but such a lot has happened on this blog !!
Cameeli, I am so glad your partners minor op went ok. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you both and wish you both lots of love. X x x
Steph, So sorry to hear you are in pain. I hope you feel better soon. Sending you lots of love. X x x
Lynne Mills, so sorry you are unwell to and I am sorry you will miss Alley Palley. X x x
Lindsey Martin, I am so glad your daughter is doing so well and I am sure she has a great teaching career ahead of her. X x x
Norah, I know exactly how you feel. I read your comment from yesterday and I to suffer from insomnia which is quite unbelievable considering the nature of this illness.( M. E .) I have had some sort of throat infection for the last two days and it really made my
M. E. a million times worse. Try to rest today and hope you feel better tomorrow X x x

I am hoping to be well enough for Alley Palley on Saturday and I am hoping to meet lots of Willsonettes for the first time. X x x
Lots of love to you Sue and everyone love Tres x x x

Tres said...

Pam and Tina, you are always in my thoughts to. Wishing you both lots of love Tres x x x

Pearl said...

Hi Sue, lovely card today, the colours and shapes go so well together. It's a masterpiece.

So many comments today, I can't read them all! I can't think why there are so many but would it be something to do with the Wednesday card giveaway perhaps.....:-)

I'd be so pleased to receive a card from you Sue, I'll keep trying.

I would love to give the card today a try myself.

I've just received some new Spellbinders and I love the new packaging - gone is that plastic pack that is just so impossible to open. Well done Spellbinders.

Craftihappiness to you all, love from Pearl

Pearl said...

.....the stamps I've just had a great too, love the new animal shapes
