Fabulous Day

 Good morning all!  I thought I would show off one of the pretty matching stamps for the Spanish Collection with today's card.  On aqua card, I stamped the Floral Cartouche stamp using a black archival ink pad.  I cut it out with the outer cutting edge of the Valencia die.  I coloured the stamped image with Distress markers and highlighted areas with a soft lead white pencil.  To create the background I used the Quilted Flower embossing folder with a piece of coconut white card.  I wrapped some zircon green seam binding around opposite corners and taped the ends to the back.  I used mounting foam on my stamped die cut and added it the centre of the card.  I stamped a sentiment and then cut it out with the Fancy Framed Tags One set.  I inked it through the die with some Tumbled Glass and Dusty Concord distress inks and mounted it in the middle of the card.  I tied a messy bow with the zircon seam binding and added some Bakers Twine before finishing it with a white crystal sparkler in the centre.  I made two fancy stick pins to adorn the bow.  The rest of the card was completed with some matting and layering with both aqua and white card and a pierced mat layer.  Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 9" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes. Beautiful card, as always, never fails to delight me.
Gail, hope you and hubby enjoyed your outing. Your brother would never begrudge you any thing, just as my brother didnt. He knew that I did all I could for him and loved him always, your brother will too.
Steph hope your market sales went well, and that you didnt overdo it. Norah, is it a woman thing to hide everything amongst our older stuff and say Oh I have had that for ages.
Happy day everyone

I do like the idea of a stamp matching the die but I don't sell many of my cards so couldn't justify buying loads of matching stamps I'm a cd rom crafter and try & create toppers to match my existing dies (I do like a challenge!) I will try stamping coz you can do so many different things eg heat emboss etc

Hi Sue and all Wilsonettes, hope you all enjoyed the warm sunny weekend. What a start to the week - plenty of warm sun and another Sue card to wow at. Its stunning, really beautiful.

Just to let you know that TINA E will probably be away for a while as she e-mailed me in the early hours to let me know her dad passed last night. The family will be devistated as he had left hospital and returned to his nursing home after he won the chest infection,so Im not sure if Tina will pop in today to tell you in her own way, but if not, then Sue, you will know why Tina isn't around.
TINA - you are in my thoughts. Love to you all.
Gail, hope you managed a little 'you time' with hubby and it was as enjoyable as it can be love.
Pam, my daily hug for yesterday and today. And friendly hugs to ALL that need or just feel like a little cuddle.
Have a beautiful day Sue.

GM Sue - love this - I have this stamp and haven't used it yet so this is just the ticket - love those blue/purple colours just the thing to cool one off on a day when 25C will be reached here apparently!! I am not a fan of those white crystal sparklers - they look a bit plasticy to me although they might look better in real life I am thinking?

Another beautiful day here in Sheffield - all the windows and doors open for a change.
I defy anyone not to love today's gift. The colour scheme is just to die for and the format well there aren't enough words to describe how beautiful the stamp fits your wonderful die. I shall definitely have to have a serous look at the stamps which match your dies. Pehaps I can talk nicely to my Mr.Banker!lol.
Crafty day for me today. Washer already doing it's stuff so I can get on finishing one or two gifts.
Take care and see you tomorow.

Hi Sue,
Really like this one. I always like the way you colour in - mine never looks as good when I use Distress Markers! I can colour with pencils so that would have to do. The matching stamp is gorgeous.
Tina - so very sorry to hear the news that your beloved dad has passed away. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Steph and Norah hope you both didn't overdo it yesterday and that you are well today.
Gail- hope you managed to enjoy your hubby's birthday yesterday - I'm sure that's what your brother would want.
Love and hugs to everyone especially those mentioned above. Xxxx Alison

Gorgeous card so much detail to take in, Love the flowers they just pops out at you. Thank you for a beautiful start to my day.
Hope you had a good weekend. Ours was a bit manic up early each day (I don't normally do early) driving into London, helping to pack up my sisters home and move her to a flat near Russell Square - a parking nightmare!!!! Anyway she is in now and today we can relax - well until this afternoon when we do the school run picking up grandchildren ............ Who said what do you do when you retire? But we wouldn't want it any other way!
Hope you and everyone has a good day, Love Brenda xxx

Lynne Mills said...

Hi Sue, what an amazing creation today. Love the colours used, the stamp is beautiful. Anyone would be overjoyed to receive this card. Lol lynne m x x x

After the grass episode with poochies on Saturday it was agreed that poochies would be with hubby yesterday in the garden while I had some time in craftroom. Well it started off ok but with my two little b's it went downhill fast. Enjoying colouring in a stamped image of flowers hear hubby calling me , ran down the stairs and out into the garden - what do do you want I said - Cully nudged a pebble out of that plant tub he said ( have several top heavy plants on patio so put pebbles on top of tub to stop them blowing over in the wind) - well put back the pebble then I said and went back to craft. "Lynne " gets called out minutes later , so yet again run downstairs and out to garden . "Tilly's just done it now " says hubby , so I say yet again put the pebble back then and return to craft muttering to myself like Mutley out of the wacky races cartoon . After waiting for 10 mins thought yes I've now got peace. No Cully does the pebble trick again whilst hubby is watching her and he just had to call me back down to tell me. Sometimes I don't think he realises how close he is to a clip round the ear!!! Darling I say with gritted teeth I dont need to know everything poochies are doing. Back upstairs I go with the intention of clearing up cuz lost the urge to craft now , "LYNNE" come quick , oh what now - Tilly's swiped the stick I was using to repot my seedlings hubby moans - Welcome to my world I tell hubby and DO NOT call me again, my sympathies now lie with yoyos cuz I know how they feel!!!!. The rest of the day was spent running interference between hubby and poochies cuz they wanted to help with the gardening by digging up what hubby was trying to plant out. So definitely gonna try for a lazy day today.

Norah - a plastic sheet with water would save me keep washing the kitchen floor x x
Lindsay - glad foals enjoyed the sunshine.
Magpie - chaos would ensue if my two met your budgies x x
June, Lynda, Alimecca, Tres - lol and hugs from Tilly n Cully.
Tina - gentle hugs to you and your family on the passing of your dad x x x

Waking up to one of your cards will do it Sue (have a fabulous day). Oh my, I love that stamp with your die. Boy do I want it, it will have to go in my bucket list again, but it'll stay near the top. I wish this card was posted on Wednesday, so I had a chance of winning it.
PS, it's pouring with rain here in Ireland.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
What a stunning card Sue, just everything about it makes it simply stunning. It is coming through as a beautiful ocean sort of colour and out of all your stamps that you have out to coincide with your dies, this is the only one i do have,WHOOPPEE playtime here i come.
Pam, as if us women would stoop to such a thing as hide and seek with our things.
Dawn, i hope you have a lovely time with your great niece this afternoon and a very happy 5th birthday to her.
I hope the Beavers had a great weekend away at "camp". I used to help out at the Rainbows when my daughter was young just so that they could continue on as they were short on staff and i didn't mind and it was a joy to see the smiles on the little ones faces. Parents want their children to go to these things but don't want to help when it is needed to keep them alive for the children. Great times and so much fun teaching the children crafty things and some of the old fashioned games that i played at the Brownies.
Gail i hope you and your hubby had a lovely time out at the theatre and for a meal. I know that your mind would still be wandering to your brother, but i trust that you did gain a wee bit benefit from the day.
Oh Tina flower, i am so, so sorry to hear about your dear dad. Words cannot express how down and sad i am for you as i know just how much it hurts. We are all here for you when you need us with cyber hugs and wee prayers being sent your way. Thank you Steph for letting us know about Tina and please pass on our hugs and thoughts to her please.
Well after the weekend of the sun playing hide and seek with us, i am hoping that it will stay out today. I just seemed to say that we had it and then it would disappear for the day, so fingers crossed that it stays out today. EVERYTHING is finished partaining to the front door and it looks so lovely in place. Inside and out, hubby has totally finished and papered the wee front hall that it is in. I think someone must have swapped my hubby for a lookalike as this finishing off is SO unusual and not normal, but i think i will keep the lookalike as he does a much better job than the original.
See you all tomorrow hopefully, gentle hugs to our special and fragile friends today,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Lynne, I think the sun must have gone to your fur babies heads, my puddy tats are all flopped about lazing in the sunshine and totally ignoring the birds who are going daft at the feeding station.
Tina, so sorry to hear about your dad, thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Hoping for a fabulous day for everyone else.

I love this card! I'm always a little leery of coloring on colored paper because I'm not sure how the colors will come out--but this is beautiful.

Hi Sue, another lovely design! I can't always make it to the computer to visit your fabulous blog, but when I do it's always with the greatest anticipation - and I'm never disappointed. Thank you for all the inspiration and our daily treat! Love to you and all the Wilsonettes, Judy M

Hi Sue,
Hi to all crafting friends,
What a beautiful card today Sue! I love everything about it - the colours used, the stamp, the colouring , bow and sparkler. Someone mentioned they look a bit plasticky - not in real life - they do really sparkle. Thanks for all the close up shots of each element! You really are a star!
Oven broke down on Friday - mended today! Tumble dryer broke today! Was only finishing off some bath towels! Aargh!
Crafting with the children again today so should be fun! Also played piggy in the middle last week! Getting a bit long in the tooth for that!
Steph thanks for letting us know about Tina's Dad. x
Tina - so very sorry to learn of your sad news. Losing a Dad is hard. Good Dads are real treasures and when I think of my Dad now it's always with a smile because he was lovely! You have my sincere sympathy. x
Gail pleased you had a lovely night out.
Norah - I think it was the excellent labouring job you did that made all the difference! x
Have a lovely day everyone.
Love Myra

Hi Sue. Another beautiful card. Love this stamp and have put on my must have list-along with the rest of your dies (well the ones I haven't got yet anyway). I have spent the weekend looking for your hearts lattice embossing folder and everywhere is sold out because it's so popular. I'm sure I shall get one soon though. Looking forward to tomorrow's card too.
Warm regards
