Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway


Hello everyone!  Time again for another Wednesday card giveaway.  For this one, I stamped a piece of raspberry card with the Rose Bouquet stamp by Justrite.  I used a black archival and stamped it all over the background, trying not to overlap but give it a nice even coverage.  I used my Galicia die to cut an aperture in the top portion of the card.  I used the die again to cut another out of black card.  I added mounting foam to the back of the stamped background and seated on a piece of white card.  I recessed the black Galicia die cut into the aperture and glued it in place.  I tied a piece of black silky crush ribbon around the bottom of the card and tied a double bow and added it to the centre of the card.  I finished the centre of the bow with a black crystal sparkler and adorned it with two matching stick pins.  I stamped the Rose bouquet Labels three stamp on to white card with a black archival ink pad.  I coloured the roses with distress markers and covered the entire piece with a sticky adhesive sheet.  I cut it out and peeled the backing off and coated it with Diamond Snow.  I mounted it with foam in the centre of my aperture.  The card was finished with a white pierced mat layer, then thin raspberry and black mats with a final white mat.  Finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x 8" in size.  If you would like to be included in the drawing to win this one, just leave me a comment.  The winners name will be posted on Saturday's post.  All for now, Sue x

Sam Smithard said...

Hi Sue, I Love The Richness of Today's Card you always get everything so right!
I Love The Colours you've decided to use, The Raspberry, Black, and a touch of White.
I Love that you've chosen The Raspberry for your Background and how you've Stamped all over using The Rose Bouquet Stamp from JustRite it shows every detail on your background, just Stunning! Then I Love how you've used your Galicia Die to cut out an Aperture in the top portion of your Card.
Then I Love how you've used The Galicia Die once more but this time in Black and it Looks amazing in Black, I Love how you've placed it through your Aperture, then I Love how you've Stamped The Rose Bouquet Labels Three Stamp and I Just Love how you've coloured the Roses with Distress Inks, then I Love how you've placed a sticky sheet on top of your stamped Rose, once the sticky side is revealed you've placed it in your Truly Awesome Diamond Snow which I Just Love, your Cards are always Truly amazing because you always add that bit extra today you've added The Beautiful Silky Crush Ribbon a wonderful Sparkler and a Fabulous pair of your Stick Pins.

Hi Sue. Great card. The pink/black combo is lovely. I love your Galicia dies and the Rose bouquet Labels three stamp together, so pretty. Not sure how but I haven't seen your Christmas dies yet so off to have a look after this. My fingers are tightly crossed for a snowman and gingerbread man die to save lots of fussy cutting, well, fussy cutting isn't really true but you know what I mean : )I hope you ok Sue and not working too hard but having a good break now and then : )
Sending my daily hugs to you Sue, Pam-another day closer to stage two of your recovery, and Robbie, Norah-I hope you are ok, Sandra- I hope the meds are kicking in! Pat- I had forgotten about the watering! all of my special friends and to all in need. Take care.

What a stunning card today, very Parisienne looking. That raspberry card is a beautiful colour. Well Sue I ordered some of your new Christmas dies yesterday.....I can never resist them, the angel is gorgeous, but then again they all are, so hard to choose. Another hot day here, but have to get moving as our son and partner are visiting from France and I need to do some much needed housework before they arrive, it has been neglected in the hot weather.
Take care everyone and have a good day

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
How can you describe today's gift as a 'Wednesday Give Away'. It really ought to be 'Today's Auction' as it's really too beautiful for a give away.
It's so Victorian in appearance and I can just see it adorning a beautiful Victorian Parlour wall. I know I cannot do it justice and give it the surrounding it really needs but I would certainly do my best and display it on my humble wall.

Pam - I know that you're excited for Friday when your Brother arrives with news of Robbie and everyone over the pond but please take care and do not do too much this week and undo all the good you and your Drs have done.

Steph - Hoping all is OK on the Birmingham front and that Mr L's Mum is getting better. Fingers are also crossed for an early apptmnt for you.

Norah - Where are you? Hope all is well with you and yours. Missing you.

Well we are certainly back into Autumn here. This is the third day we have arisen to rain/wind and very low temps. Summer has really been turned around this year. Ah well it's another Cardy/long trouser day for me and crafting indoors. At least all the jobs outside cannot be done so crafting/crafting/crafting YIPEEEEEE.

Hope all are feeling a little better today. Take care and see you tomorrow.

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
Today's card has that love look to it and would make a beautiful card for Valentines day or just for a couple still that much in love with each other. Even down to the lovely black ribbon and bow, it is lovely. Thank you Sue for our beautiful card today.
Lost a couple of days due to making friends with floor and just through pure weakness and pain, sorry.Still not back to normal pain levels and energy but getting there so will keep short.
Pam, please be careful when your brother comes as you have come so far and are just about done with your casserole pot.Sending you big cyber hugs which at the moment are stronger than physical ones.
Steph flower, i am so sorry Mr.L's mum has landed in hospital and you for sook yours for the sake of Mr L. I hope that granny L gets better soon, and you get another appointment sooner rather than later.
Happy birthday Micky, i hope that you have a lovely day flower.
Thank you everyone for caring so much and noticing, you all are the tops bar no one.
Love and crafty hugs

Myra P said...

Hi Sue,
I love today's card! I love the raspberry with black. You made one some time ago now which I think you called Raspberry Ripple ? It had a swirly border die cut in black and a pink sugared flower, I think! As a result of that I bought the raspberry card and still have some so although I don't have today's rose stamp - I will have a go with another one. Thanks Sue. I think all Creative Expressions card stock is beautiful .
Jeanette - hope you enjoy your day at the Commonwealth Games and hope weather is nice too!
Dawn S. - have a lovely time with your family.
Norah - hope you are ok! Missing you.
To everyone else - have a lovely day . If you are unwell special hugs today for you.
Love Myra

Hi Sue, morning Wilsonettes.

Happy Birthday Micky French (hope you've had lots of crafty goodies)

What a belter ! Todays card screams 'LOOK AT ME' and I'd just love to please, I'd love to sit and stroke it too if I maybe so lucky !
What a fabulous colour that raspberry card is, it shows up the background stamp perfectly. Good luck everyone.
Thank you so much to those really lovely friends here that posted messages today re my MIL and missed spinal injection, what lovely friends you really are, thank you. Still no idea what is going on with her health, and since phones are now allowed on wards, you no longer have to rely on nursing staff to give you snippets of info, so Mr L can talk to her directly and hopefully find out more, as she hadn't seen a doctor when he spoke to her yesterday ! As for me, Im more than greatful for my rice heat bag (thanks to Margaret) and meds to keep me upright ! I really hope I dont have to wait too long for another appointment, but we all know what waiting time is like - right ??!
Well, I was sad to be told my dear little craft shop may be going up for sale ! She cant compete with internet prices, its SO sad that our little craft shops are being pushed out of business. So if you have one, use it or lose it thats what I say !
That's my lot for today. Im hoping you are happy and well Sue.
To my dearest of friends that struggle daily but keep smiling through, you are an inspiration.
To Clair - Birdies or Bogies - have a good game of golf today : ) soften those knees and ..... Swing lol
Hugs to our Pam, Tina and Theresa and to our ladies that dont feel so good. Tomorrow is another day xx

Norah, glad to see you back but sorry to hear that you and your floor have become better acquainted.

Hi Sue,

Once again another beautiful card, how do you keep thinking up new designs. You are such an inspiration.

Pam said...

Welcome back Norah, so sorry you had a fall, please take care.
Meg, sending lots of prayers and good wishes for the baby and his worried parents and grandparents. They are such resilient little fighters, but you must be so anxious.
Happy birthday Mickey, have a lovely day.
Pat, the cast is pink, quite a shocking pink, can't miss it and hard to coordinate with my daily clothes.
Steph, I can understand how upset you will be with your little craft shop. I am an internet shopper, mainly due to not having a local craft shop, I used to spend hours just mooching when it was there, before making my selection.
Hugs all round x

Wheely Bad said...

Good Afternoon Sue and all the Wilsonettes

Sue, many thanks for my prize which arrived today. Please pass on my thanks to everyone at Creative Expressions too. This sentiment set had been on my neeed list so I'm absolutely over the moon xxx

I did love yesterday's cards. Perfect for kiddies, teens and young families I thought. I really, really love todays card though. I have a friend who this would be perfect for. Her birthday is I November and the stamps are on next months shopping list so I shall try do something similar for her.

Monday's excitement pretty much finished me for yesterday, so I'm catching up. Steph, I hope mum in law is ok and that the hospital will fit you back in without much fuss. Norah, I'm sorry you had a fall. I hope there's no damage done. Take care of yourself. Meg, thinking of all your family and baby xxx Hugs for you all and Special hugs for Sandra and her girls.

I have the 5 temp heat mat too. It's the first one I haven't killed in 3 months and brought it as it had a long guarantee. I'm thinking of getting a second so I can have one on my back and one on my neck. There's no room in my kitchen for a microwave so I can't use wheat bags. Bit of an issue using it in this heat though but I am rarely without it.

Have to be brief as really not feeling too sharp and need my energy for a shower, which I'm sure will make me feel much better and cooler. Going to brace my back up later and go to the shops with my PA and the dog. There's a pub nearby so we'll stop for a diet coke and sit in the garden where Billy will forage for dropped food (Mr WheelyBad having some post birthday respite and has gone fishing for 24 hours) Big hugs for Pam and Robbie, Janet Ecco, Maria,Yorkielass June, Alison 'Alimecca', Lynda, Myra, Lindsay, TOB, Brenda... & anyone I forgot. I wish Wilsonettes everywhere a happy day and special thought for those in pain, ill or recovering. Special hug for Sue, who I hope is having rests now and again and, by the way, the Christmas dies look amazing!!!!! Xxxx

Oh that raspberry is a very pretty color and with the black it looks stunning. Love all the glittery things you use on all your cards just adds that wonderful touch.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I love the raspberry card and the stamping on it. I think it was Karen Knight that said it felt a bit racey and I agree. My first thought on seeing it was 'very boudoir-ish'. I'm coming round to using more black but I don't think I'd go this far just yet :-).
