Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

Hello friends!  This card isn't maybe as flashy as the ones that I usually put on offer for the card giveaway, but it is quite pretty in real life.  I hope you don't mind, but I like to change it up sometimes so that there are different styles to appeal to different tastes.  So I am hoping that you will want to leave a comment today to be in the drawing for this one!  I started with a piece of decorative paper from my stash (Teresa Collins, I believe).  I added a smaller panel that was done out of coconut white card that I embossed with the Illusion embossing folder.  I cut the largest die from the California Collection Decorative Frames Set B out of white card and inked through the die with Tattered Rose distress ink before removing it.  I stamped the sentiment from the Becca Feeken's stamp set called Friendship Vintage Labels Seven.  I cut it out with my California Collection Set A largest size.  I inked it with Tattered Rose as well and mounted it atop the other die.  For my embellishments, I stamped the Justrite daisy three times using a black archival ink pad.  I cut out only the daisy head, leaving the leaves behind.  I coloured them with Distress markers (Tattered Rose, Scattered Straw) and mounted them on foam around the lower corner of my sentiment, slightly overlapping them.  Using Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue, I added some to eachh of the centres and sprinkled them with Diamond Snow for a bit of bling.  I cut some of the Fern Trio die and added them as well as a messy bow tied from white seam binding and white tulle.  I matted the entire piece on a double white mat and added Cosmic Shimmer white PVA glue dots around the edge as accents.  The final touch was three flatback pearls in the upper corner.  Finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x 8 1/4" in size.  I'll announce the winner on Saturday's post.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. Beautiful card, I love it. The Illusion embossing folder works so well on this one, as do the flowers and the background paper : )
Pam, sending your daily hug, I am so glad that you take a little comfort from us all. It is always good to see your name at the top of the comments : )
Take care.

TDQ Karen said...

Such delicate colouring and a pretty style, what is not to like? I spent yesterday making stained glass windows, pleased with the result and the dies are fantastic. Was surprised quite how long the glue took to dry but the final result is great. Thank you so much for sharing the idea, and of course designing the wonderful Calabria die xx

Anonymous said...

Each day I am thankful for ... waking up and seeing your lovely cards. Today's is no exception. Don't think I would ever describe any of your cards as 'flashy' - opulent, extravagant, stunning, downright gorgeous certainly but always in the best possible taste!! (An old TV joke - ask OH.)

Hi Sue
What a lovely card for today's giveaway, I will have to add this folder to my wish list, I don't stamp but I have a daisy like die so that might work.
Love and hugs to all
Happy crafting
Love Tina x

BridgetCG said...

Hello Sue, I think this card is perfect, from the layout to the colours used, and love that background paper. The verse is really meaningful. I would love to win any of your cards. Bx

Eemeli said...

Fabulous creation! Maybe a bit too "peachy" to my taste but the design
and those pretty-pretty-pretty fuzzy-cut flowers are very nice.
Take care.

Hugs,

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
I'd love to win this one, it's gorgeous. Love the colours, dies and composition. The fern dies make perfect leaves for the flowers.
Hugs, Rose

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
What a beautiful giveaway card I love it. The Illusion embossing folder is so clever it looks different each time you look at it (you'd think you'd designed it like that lol). Like Nanna Tina I don't have the stamp but do have a daisy die I could use. I love the verse another 'I need' I'll never be rich.
I hope everything went well yesterday for you Steph.
Myra P that was so funny yesterday and 'P' in Wales I got the joke.

Morning Sue. It does not matter what you do with your cards they always look beautiful but this one as you say is different from your bling cards. I love the way you use a load of different dies and make them all work togeather. The embossing folder looks different each way you turn it its a must have for my collection and the fern trio with the flower heads are lovely so pleased i have got them. Hope you are having a great time with your family.
Best Wishes.

Jacquie said...

Morning Sue,

This is gorgeous, love the colours and the papers. Your embossing folders are ace, guessing these are new due to come out lol?!

The verse is brilliant Becca does do some really wonderful verses but I notice she does not do mail order from her blog so does she have a web site that we can purchase from? I have always loved her verses so it would be great to get hold of some.

Love & Hugs

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
This might not be flashy ( your word!) but it is lovely. As others have said it could easily be adapted for those who don't stamp by using flower dies. I personally like the stamped flowers. Pam pleased you're doing so well. Snow queen enjoy your new fur baby! Steph & Norah hope today is better. Jean hope your son is ok. Cameeli we are all waiting to hear how the wedding went! Love & hugs to everyone, Alison xxxx

Beautiful thought provoking verse, I love it when a sentiment is the focal point of a card. Love it! Xxx

Anonymous said...

GM Sue - lovn that Ilusion EF - I can feel another fave coming on! Thanks for the great video yday - the pinch and roll tip will make all the difference I think as when I've made them before using the stamp and rolled the petal edges over a brush and then assembled, without pinching and rolling, they never looked like yours did - know I now why!

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Thank you for today's gift - it may not be a 'fancy' as some of your gifts but still very desirable and I am still more than happy to be a foster mum.
I love the colour scheme of today. Simple and very tender and the format is truly gentle and will fit any occasion whether with a little bit more bling or even taking the ribbon away.
Am here back in Sheffield and so today is one of those days where I have to now unpack and get everything back into place here. So no crafting for me today. I hope that there are some of my Wilsonette sisters out there who feel the same when returning home - I hate unpacking!!
Take care everyone and see you tomorrow.

Anne O said...

Hi Sue

Sue from Wiltshire said...

Don't know why you would think this beautiful card wouldn't be liked as much. I think it is stunning and although it is nice to use dye cut flowers these are really beautiful too. The designs are always excellent and something we can aspire to or adapt to what we have in our stash. Thank you for bringing it to us and not hiding it away. Certainly a winner.

Hi Sue,

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
Sue, we come on to your blog for our daily dose of inspiration and delight, we are NEVER disappointed no matter what the goodies that you have in store for us and today is no exception. Not everyone likes all the pigs and whistles and to get inspired to do something totally different for others is fantastic. This card is really beautiful and magical in a totally different way from normal. I think this verse is us on this blog as we do have lovely friends who are the family we would choose for ourselves. Thank you for bringing us that continuous supply of magic each day.
Steph flower, thinking of you today as i know you will be sore and worried, but please don't. Take it as easy as you can but i know from personal experience keeping as busy as able to takes your mind off the pain, but take care.
Sue C (Snow Queen) ooooh i can feel that excitement as you are waiting to go and pick up the newest member of your family. I wish you a lot of joy with your new "baby" as there is nothing like having a lovely soft head to stroke or silky ears and they love you no matter what which is lovely and so soothing and stress relieving. I wish i could take Tia out for a walk but i think i would need to be on a pair of rollerskates and just be pulled along behind, but on second thoughts, if i can't stay up straight on my own two feet, i have no chance on a pair of rollerskates. Making friends with the pavement comes to mind somehow.
Teresa(Tob), i hope your daughter has a lovely birthday today. Now as my mum would say "couldn't you have held on for another few hours" when she could have been your birthday present. I have almost 7 years bar 4 days between my children and my daughter always wanted a wee brother for her birthday. The way she seen it, i was already 3weeks overdue so what was another 4 days? I ask you, just seeing that it wasn't her with this ever expanding tummy that was pushing on everything inside.My mum wanted him to be born early so that it could be the 18th of July and easier for her to remember, as i was June and my daughter August, both the 18th so that would make it nice and simple for her to remember. The thought "yes mum, i'll do that just so that you can remember easily" came to mind and i don't think. But it was like waiting for a number 7 bus, you wait for ages and then 2 come along at once making it a very expensive week.
Well from a rainy day Glenochil (not Georgia) with the clouds having a rest on the top of the hills (I didn't realise how tiring it was being a cloud) i will wish you all my dear Wilsonettes, a great day and if the sun isn't shining above you, i hope it is in your hearts. Sending gentle hugs to our delicate friends who need them the most,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Hi Sue, what a beautiful card. Love this set of stamps , I use mine often. It looks like the fern die will have to go on my must have list. Thanks for sharing , anyone would be delighted to win this card. Lol lynne m x x x

Spent most of yesterday on garden duty to prevent little b's from digging up bulbs and new plants. However , knew that the kitchen floor needed washing twice!!. Why twice you may ask , well every time I wash the floor ( very large L shape) my little divas sit at the back door watching me then when I have finished they run around the garden to gather up speed launch themselves through the door hit the floor and slide the length of the kitchen. The expression on their faces is priceless. This is done over and over until they have to lay down for a rest. This is when they are contained in the lounge whilst I wash the floor again. Perhaps instead of a gymnast Tilly wants to be an ice skater!!

Lynda- Annie, Bambi and even Costa-Lota ( freddy) are gorgeous. Good job Terry didn't want a snake aaarrrggghhhhhh.
Norah - wee soul her ambition !!! Tilly is so not graceful more like a bull in a china shop bless her. Sending you gentle hugs and lol hope you feel better soon x x x
Lindsay - sending you gentle hugs cuz of your poorly rib. Glad your mum's ankle is getting better.
June & Karen - hugs to you from poochies
Steph - hope all went ok yesterday.
Snowqueen - have a great first day with your puppy.

To all on this wonderful blog - hugs from my fur babies and me x x x x

Another stunning card here today, just beautioful as usual hun.

Heather Rogers said...

Well how could you possibly think we would not want to receive anything that you have created?

Your cards are always stunning but I know what you mean. When you make them every day there are some that you feel are better than others yet all may be lovely in their own way. Today's card is no exception. I love the peach and the flowers and leaves are lovely.

Janice Wallace said...

What's not to like with this card. So many ideas for us to use. Personally, I like a patterned background, love the sentiment, and the overall layout works very well, showing us not to be too symmetrical.
Cheers

Morning Sue
I am a relatively new crafter and new to your blog, and although I am supposed to be working right now, I can't stop reading your blog and looking at all the beautiful inspirational cards you create. You make everything look so easy on your videos. Your dies and embossing folders are a must have for me and I'm busy making a list as we speak.
Enjoy your day :-)

terrie said...

This card is just as flashy as your others card....it is beautiful...I like all the embellishment that you added on this card...
Well done Sue

julie laz said...

Hi Sue, all your cards are beautiful I don't think I've ever seen a bad one sue, I have not commented on your cards for the last couple of days, (sorry about that)
My 16 year old son has very bad asthma attack and was rushed to hospital Sunday, it was a very bad few hours waiting, then he passed out, the asthma is now under control,
Now They just can't get his heart rate down its 140 and he is on full oxygen, we now just have to wait, and I hate waiting, any way I came home for a cuppa and sat here and had a look at your cards and comments, I thought I would let all my Wilsonet family know, I will take all the HUGS that people give on this blog to my son. crafty hugs Julie xxx

Susan rusman I got you message thank you, hugs Julie xx

Very pretty card, Sue. Your new die cut leaves are so beautiful. Thanks for giving us the chance to win such a gorgeous card

Maureen Bleay said...

Just love this card and the apricot colouring. The embossing shows the leaf dies off to perfection and the sentiment is so right for the card. Thanks for all the inspiration Sue. Hugs Maureen Haven't commented for a couple of days due to a few days away in the smoke and a very sad occassion to go to. Will be back in full voice now hopefully!!

Robin said...

Lovely colours - like it!

Myra P said...

Hi Sue,
How could we ever put Sue Wilson's card and boring in the same sentence? Never! The card is so soft today and gentle , the daisies and fern look gorgeous. Lovely sentiment too. Love what you've done to the centre of the flowers.
I said I'd make roses last night ! Nope - was too tired! Why do they make Care Homes so hot? Picture looked pretty good! Butterflies were coloured very imaginatively! However Sue everyone loved your flowers and leaves. Two ladies asked if they could make something to send to great - grandaughters! So we made simple cards and they were so chuffed! Thanks Sue!
Karen thanks, I did have fun x
Norah been in stitches at your tired clouds! Ours here today must be exhausted because they not moving ! x
Heather T glad you saw funny side - it just tickled me and I typed a howler fairly recently!
Happy birthday to Theresa's daughter and to you for tomorrow Teresa xx
Janet hate unpacking and all the mess that goes with it! x
Julie so sorry about your son. How worrying for you sending you both love and hugs xx
Steph - ouch that sounds painful - so sorry you have an added pain. x
That's all folks, I think!
Love to all, Myra

Happy Crafting!!! :) X X

Lovely soft colour palette.

Angela Wade said...

Good Moring Sue and Wilsonettes, hope your jaw infection clears soon Lancashire Steph, you must be in agony.
I like today's card , Sue and other cards you've shown previously using this lovely 'Hello Daisy stamp '. I've just checked, as I thought this is one I already have. I do and I've got it with me!! I have quite a few stamps now and sometimes forget exactly what I have got LOL.
I have started cataloging all my stamps, dies, ink pads etc. but is a work in progress, especially as I keep adding more.
Does anyone else have this problem ??
Best Wishes all,
Angela in Dubai x

A beautiful card Sue. Anyone would be thrilled to win this. Thank you.
Bye for now.

Beth T said...

I love this card-please don't ever apologize for any of your creations!
I especially liked how you inked the die cut piece behind the top sentiment layer-it adds extra depth to the card as if you had matted with another layer of paper. This would go thru the mail much easier because the flower feature is flat.
I know I could never add all those pearl dots as evenly as you, but they add so much.
Thanks for sharing--

CraftyJo said...

I don't mind you doing 'less flashy' at all ;) Mind you, even your less-flashy are more flashy than most people make LOL.

Jean flowers said...

Beautiful card yet again Sue. I love the words on the front.
Hope everyone is having a good day.

Good Wednesday afternoon. Another lovely card. The California collection A & B are so useful I tend to use either one on most cards now. I have lots of stamps that I stamp and then use the die to frame the image. Kind regards Sandra Kent.

Pauline A said...

Afternoon Sue,
Another stunning card today and one I especially like since I bought the daisy stamp a couple of months ago but haven't used it yet but after seeing this card I really must give it a try. The embossing folder looks great but I will have to buy it as I am still using your previous collection. This is a card most people would love to display on their windowsill (facing outwards for everyone to see. Hugs Pauline A xx

Hi Sue,
What do you mean 'not flashy' it's stunning. So often less is actually more and I love the look of this card - anymore 'flash' may well have ruined it in my humble opinion. Love it.
