Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

 Hi bloggers!  I am probably taking a bit of a chance on this one, I expect the response might be rather mixed as it is quite wild, but I really like it!  I started with peach card and stamped the Iron Swirls Background by Justrite on it in black.  I used the Majestic Circles to cut an aperture in the centre. I added height to the background by adding mounting foam to the back.  Then I recessed the stamped cut out piece back into the aperture.  I cut one more Majestic Circles out of white card and used a smaller die on the inside to create a frame.  I glued that in to the recessed aperture.  I stamped a sentiment and cut it out with Fancy Framed Tags Two.  I highlighted it with Tattered Rose ink while still in the die.  I also cut a white shadow mat for it.  I offset the shadow and used mounting foam to add height and added it across my aperture.  I made a Faux Quilled Bloom and seated a top a white seam binding messy bow.  I made two fancy stick pins to match.  I finished the card with a white pierced mat layer, then added thin peach and black mats for balance and a final white mat to complete the card.  Finished dimensions are 6" x 7 1/4" in size.  If you are adventurous and would like to be entered in the drawing to win this card, just leave me a comment.  I will post the winners name on Saturday's blog post.  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue and everyone, such a beautiful card again. Loved the video yesterday , especially the flower, who would have thought of doing that, just Our Sue.
Robbie has had his neck brace removed, whoo hoo. Another step forward. He is such a determined young man but this step had him very nervous, so glad that the surgery was successful with the donor bone.
Good ,luck Ita and June for hospital visits, you will be in my thoughts today.
Hugs to baby Leo x. Also to all my blog friends, today is the day, will the cast come off or not, thank you for all your good wishes, I will let you know later as appointment with consultant at 2.45pm
Keep well everyone, hugs to all x

June said...

Morning Sue, Pam and everyone, oh wow I love this card Sue, it is gorgeous, I know I keep saying that but as you know I absolutely love all your cards, I am definitely going to try this one out. I also loved yesterdays video especially the flowers as Pam said only you could come up with that neat little trick, another one for me to try.....oh my to try list is getting longer and longer. I go to a small craft club on a Wednesday and we each pick out a card that they like and everyone else makes their take on it, well today I am going to do my take on your 'Aperture in a background' card, so looking forward to it. I also love on your new videos the fact that you are reiterating some of the techniques that you do, pricking round the card is a prime example, I am definitely hooked on this. Well best get ready, shower waiting, tea getting cold and hubby is cooking breakfast. Good luck today Pam with the cast removal, also wonderful news about Robbie having the neck brace off, what was it that Neil Armstrong said (I think it was him) one small step .........one giant leap........ Have a great day everyone, stay safe, healthy and happy. June Smith xxxxx

Hi Sue, very lovely card, do not usually do black as the elderly lady I give my cards to is not keen, but this colour combo is lovely. Lilian

Anonymous said...

Hi Sue. Morning all.
Isnt this what card making/crafting is all about - trial and error and experimentation. You do all those things for us, show us your end results then we take it from there. Mr L always says " dont always make cards you would like to receive as so many people have different tastes" I will admit to making a few cards that Id 'bin' given the chance, but to my shock and extreme horror, someone has picked it out, bought it and taken it away (whilst Ive cringed with embarrasment) !! So yes, Mr L can be right sometimes ! So what am I rattling on about ?! That some people will class it as Marmite - I love it. It's different so maybe that's why. No matter what you come up with, wether it be a 'typical' Sue card or something completly different, it's the inspiration, help, tips etc that makes Particraft what it is, but also some of the lovely ladies we are lucky to find here, saying that - Pam, today my thoughts go with you to your appointment. Good Luch hon.
Ita - I repeat my message to you that I left yesterday.

To all my lovely very special friends - you know who you are, I send love and gentle hugs.
To Sue - have a good day and Thank you for being you.

Will check back later to get a Pam update LOL.

Love you.
Lancashire Steph xx

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
I would not call myself adventurous but I really do think today's gift is wonderful! I love the way that you've made the background stamping the main feature with the circle as a supporting role.
I also love the colours for today. They remind me very much of the colours used in the 30s -not that I can remember them in real life-but peach/black was definitely the colours for 30s lingerie. I would love to have your beautiful piece of art sat on my wall giving me inspiration.

Well we had a really good day for the market yesterday - sunshine all the way and very very hot it was too. I managed the main street of stalls because Mr E's little man who sells wonderful black pudding always stands the main street with his two very large drums fired by calor cooking the most wonderful pudding and selling homemade pates etc. You can just see that happening back in the UK can't you!! The H&S people would have a dickey fit - what cooking on the main street with no safety barriers to stop people from getting near the drums and then also selling cooked meats etc within a couple of feet away on the same stall!!
So armed with black pudding and garlic bought from a stall a little further up the street we ventured up one side and down the other passing the pastry shop with 'we'll call there on our way back' and finished at the bottom at our normal coffee stop to sit and watch and oh don't you just see some sights and some really wonderful characters. some time ago on one of our local Friday markets we had to sit inside and there saw a totally different world of characters just ready really for an author to include in their latest story. One of the tables four men sat ages from 60 onwards; each having a different hat on but all having a newspaper open in front of them choosing which horses to back that day (it's one of those cafes where you can also place your daily bets etc). They also have their little glass of something to help them make their decisions and then in walked a very tall and sturdy lady with her husband following and yes he is quite a bit smaller than her. They met friends and she started to talk to the other lady and although I could not make out everything that was said she was passing on the latest gossip with all the wonderful actions necessary. We there and then called the bottom table of gentlemen 'the betting table' and the lady 'madame gossip'. We see them nearly every Friday morning when we have to sit inside. Anyway we decided to walk the back way to the car and missed the pastry shop out completely!! Well there's Friday coming up when it's the normal market day.

We might have had a glorious day yesterday but it started raining very heavily in the night and it's still coming down like stair rods.

Pam - fantastic news on the Robbie front. Another really big step for him.
Steph - hope you're feeling a bit more lively today. It doesn't hurt having a lazy day you know. We all have some of those.

Hope everyone is feeling a little better today. Take care when out and about and see you tomorrow.
Janet x

Hi Sue,WOW i love this card,the colours are lovely together and background in black on the peach really stand out,i have just had delivery of the iron swirls stamp cant wait to try it,thank you so much for sharing your talent Linda x

Dawn Searle said...

Morning Sue and everyone,
This 'wild' card is beautiful, I am loving the black stamped onto the peach card and the faux quilled flowers really set it off beautifully. I have so many dies I thought I would look for a storage system, but it would work out so expensive. I bought some cheap cd storage boxes from Ikea and some empty cd jewel cases which are also very cheap. I cut a piece of magnetic sheet to fit and put a set of dies inside, even Sue's larger ones fit in. I then label the cd case and stand them upright in the cd boxes and I can flick through and find the die i want. I put flower dies in one box, Christmas dies in another etc. the large border dies I lay onto an A4 magnetic sheet with a small label above each die telling me the name and I can get around five or six on each sheet.
I hope that you get your cast off today Pam and such wonderful news for Robbie, it will be a long road for him but with support from his loving family he will succeed.
Have a good day everyone.
Love and hugs
Dawn Searle xxxx

Just love this card, Sue, my two favourite colours so what's not to like?! Can't imagine there would be anybody with adverse comments but hey ho we're all different. If I did this (as well I might) would go one step further and make a black circle and black ribbon - now that would cause a ruction. Would very much like to win this please and thanks for the chance. Nice embellishment, as always.

'P' in Wales

Ita - thinking of you and hope all goes well, what a tough time you're having. Sending hugs.
Pam - let's hope today's the day!

Helen Kington said...

Good morning Sue and all Wilsonettes - I love todays card and as everybody has said yesterdays video and flower idea were just brilliant.
Pam I hope all goes well today - I remember when my cast came off all I could think was look how hairy my leg had got!!! I hope Robbie keeps up with his progress - small steps .
I have been checking in each day but I have been feeling slightly down and not wanting to 'talk' why I don't know. So hugs to all who are in need this blog family are there for all. Take care here's hoping the sun stays out for a while so I can walk my dog in the dry especially as Wednesday is doggie coffee day. Our small group all go to the local coffee shop after our walk and sit outside. Ozzie likes to sit on my lap and I usually end up looking like I have had an accident as I get wet from his paws in all the wrong places!!! I will leave you now with that picture. Hope everyone has a good day. Helen xx

Anonymous said...

Hi Sue - don't know what you mean about being wild but I absolutely love this card. I love the ironwork background stamp and I'm so pleased you explained how you cut out your circular border - I made a card only yesterday and forgot about using a smaller die so it didn't cover the aperture and it didn't look right! I shall now remedy this! Thank you for sharing another wonderful card with us. Best wishes

Yes I do like it, so you didn't take much of a chance for me. Love the flower, how do you think outside the box all the time? To think of other ways to use the dies are not always on my mind so when you do it, you make it look so easy. I have the leaf dies so will be using it as centres for larger flowers. Thank you . hugs xxx
P.S. Good luck to

barbiepinkfairy said...

Good Morning Sue and all the Wilsonettes, I love this one and will give it a go. I bought a gorgeous paper at mine and Steph's crafty heaven which would be ideal for the background and I fancy it microbeaded.I need to do a retirement card so may do it for that.

Steph hope you are less tired today but remember sleep is good for you and nature tells you when you need it.

Norah hope you are OK today?

Pam, good luck with your plaster but be aware your foot will feel like you don't own it!


Lynda I am hoping to do Ally Pally on the Saturday but need to book train. Just considering staying over and going out with my brother on the Sat night as he lives in Greenwich and then doing market Sunday morning. Just adds to cost but makes a great weekend and Tilly is coming too and adores her Uncle and London so we could have a real girlie weekend.

It a sorry about your health problems but support guaranteed here.

Well ladies school hols continue roller skating (steph you from here originally or are you imported! Do you remember the Navada?) Then macaroons making a new venture but believe they can be tricky!

Love to all xxx

Morning Sue, I really like this card, we should all take a leaf out of your book and try to create something completely different otherwise we get stuck in a rut and all our cards end up looking the same. Thanks for the inspiration.

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
this card is absolutely beautiful.
Every single element of it. I love the recessed technique, so effective. Stick pins to die for, in fact there's nothing NOT to like about this card.
Hugs, Rose

iReneM said...

This is gor-ge-ous.

How could you think it wouldn't be liked, Sue, LOL.

Love it :)

Nana on the Hill said...

I simply love this card, the background is beautiful, and you've managed to make it look quite Gothic. As usual Sue, a stunner.

Ivonka said...

I don't think you're taking a chance, Sue - I think it's lovely and not too wild at all!
I haven't been around for a few days so shall sit down with a cuppa and work through the blogs that I've only glimpsed. Looking forward to the video in particular. Happy crafting! Yx

My first thought was wow, that is different to the norm but, I have to say, I do like it. The combination of black and peach makes it quite stunning.

Hi Sue, this works for me..love it!

Kiraneries said...

Hi Sue, it is a gorgeous card and I love it especially the stamped background. I was really disappointed I missed the last two weeks of your blog. Wifi where we were staying in France was useless and hubby would not let me use my phone for wifi over there. Home and back to normal now with lots of your cards to catch up on.

Susan White said...

Wow - totally wonderful! Love the way the peach and black are so striking, and the lovely little flower - hope you pick me!!! Susan x

Mary Burton said...

Hi Sue,
The iron swirls background is so gorgeous, and it always looks so different when stamped in other colours and styles. I like the way that the black ink brings out the black beads of the stick pins. Very elegant.

Maxine T said...

Sue, I don't find this wild at all, I love it. Keep them coming.

Beth T said...

You crack me up! I don't see any risk at al!!! It's a stunning card and I would recognize it anywhere as one of your gorgeous designs. Can't wait to make a similar one!

Lynne Mills said...

Hi Sue, this creation is one of my all time favourites. I love the peach/black combo very zingy. It brightens a very overcast day. Keep bringing us your amazing talent , I for one are very grateful. Lol lynne m x x x x

Well nearly had to call out doggie rescue as went to forest yesterday and Cully took off like a rocket straight for the trees/bushes and disappeared from sight. Tilly ran around in circles looking for her sister. Called and whistled but no Cully. After a while of wondering what the devil to do ( hubby kept saying she shouldn't run off like that !!!) honestly sometimes I could slap his head for the daft comments he comes out with. Instead breathed deeply and inspiration/desperation hit, I used one of three words that
no matter where my devious divas are in the house they can hear me say these words"Cully breakfast" I called loudly. Sure as eggs are eggs out came the little monster running up to me as if to say "where's my food then". Tilly distanced herself from Cully as if to say "you're on your own for this one". Hubby got the leads on the girls and that was the end of playtime in the forest. I could feel Cully's eyes boring into the back of my head all the way home in accusation of the missing breakfast.
Told hubby after all the excitement!!! I would have a layin this morning, so he would take poochies across the road to the park for a run. Well my body was ready for a layin but my brain and the working cells I have left had other ideas. 20 to 6 I woke up, decided that I would join hubby in the park. Poochies spotted me and ran straight at me jumping up at the last minute to plant muddy paw prints on my t shirt and leggings. That got me thinking ( I am known for going off in tangents) if I put ink on poochies paws I could have my own designer range of clothes called "Paws for thought" ' told you I only have a few working brain cells. Oh well back to reality and housework.

Lindsay - hugs to your little man, fingers crossed his leg improves.
Norah - hope you feel better today
Pam - hope all goes well and the plaster comes off.

June, Karen, Alison, Lynda, Steph, Barbara, Mrs B, Margaret CO, Tres, Angela,Myra, Maria and everyone I have missed - lol as ever.

purplenana said...

Hi Sue
Lovely card as ever, as you said slightly different colours, but black and peach work together particularly for a "thank you" or "just to say" type card. Thank you once again for a chance to win one of your cards.

Christine said...

I've never been called 'adventurous' before, but I must be as I love everything about this card ! It would be something special if I was to win it. Good luck everyone, and thank you Sue.

I love the peach card Sue and the black stamping looks striking on it. Gorgeous card, elegant in my opinion. Pat x

Lindsay Martin said...

Ooh Sue, I love this one, so you won't get any negatives from me....!
Pam I'm so pleased Robbie is continuing with steady progress, he will feel so much better without the neck brace on once his confidence returns and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you that you get to have your cast off, just as it's starting to get cooler!
Norah, hope you're ok.
Jackie, I know how you feel missing out on your pastry, we want to our local one day agricultural show last week where we were showing one of our ponies, we took her come, cleaned up the trailer and got ourselves changed, got back to the show and had some lunch, but were too full for our ritual of show doughnuts, so decided we would wait awhile. We kept looking round the show found a lovely ice cream stall so my daughter and i had an ice cream each, again now too full for he doughnut. We watched the main display, and on our way back around the show decided to go to one of the clothing stalls, buy our yearly hoodies etc, then finally get out doughnut, only when we got there they told us they had runout... Well to say I wasn't impressed was an understatement, I'd been looking forward to them for the last year!
Lynne, those girls of yours do,make me chuckle, good job you remembered the lucky words!
Helen, glad to see you feel able to comment today.
Alison hope the head is all better today.
DaiLy hugs to all my friends including, Steph, Karen, TOB, Tina, Tres, Sandra, Margaret, Linda, Cameeli, Myra, Theresa, Julie and Lee, wheelybad and p in Wales xxx

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, adventurous, me? I don't think so, but I love this card! The peach is gorgeous as is your stick pin. I can't think of anyone who wouldn't want it on their wall.

Lynne, to get my cats in at night I have a new magic word 'Dreamies!' it rarely fails and I wish they had been available years ago.
Frances

Love the colors and think this card is lovely, I like mixing up black with different colors, such as yellow and blk. or lime green and black.
Yvonne N.

SusanP, Kent said...

I like it. The black on peach is a lovely combination. The stick pins don't do it for me though. I just don't like them on anything for some reason I can't work out.

hollyberry said...

A really beautiful card that has different colours that are gorgeous.

terrie said...

Great looking card...the color is a different but everything you added to the card as embellishment makes this card really nice.
Well done Sue

Tina Eldridge said...

Hi Sue and lovely blog friends

I also think the card was different for you, and I love it. I love the peach and black colour combo and the stick pins are fab.

Pam. Fantastic news about Robbie, that's really good news and going in the right direction. Good luck today Pam, will look in later.Hugs to you and Robbie X

Norah, I hope you are OK today. We were short changed yesterday. Thinking of you. X

Steph, I hope that nail is not giving you jip today. Did you get my email about the focal point, I did'nt put it on my blog, I sent it to your email. Hugs X

Ita. I hope everything goes well for you at the hospital, thinking of you. X

Hugs to Margaret, Yorkielass, Lynda and Lydsay bummer about those doughnuts.

Kind regards to all

Sonia Jones said...

This card is lovely and i love the pricked edging you do. I only wish mine were half as good LOL. Hugs Sonia

Susi Mortimer said...

Hi Sue, as you say different, but yet so beautiful, and the colours are lovely also. Have a great day everyone. Susi x

Barbara said...

I like it!
I don't think we are really seeing the true colour in the picture, it doesn't do it justice.
You never make a card I wouldn't like to own, sometimes I might prefer it in a different colour but I love all your cards.

LYNNE those girls certainly keep you fit. Don't you just panic when they disappear out of sight and don't come when you shout. You hear that many stories of dogs going missing/stolen. I like to give Ben some freedom but have had quite a few occasions when I have thought I had lost him and would never let him off the lead again but I love to see him running about free. The joys of having dogs!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lesley Griffiths said...

Well I think it is just lovely.

Tandy said...

Hi Sue,
Love everything about this card I wish we could buy your stick pins. Good news about Robbie and I hope you got your cast off today Pam. Norah I hope you are alright. Special love to Baby Leo. Love and hugs to all.

Hi sue.
So what if its a little wild. I really like it. Quite like the peach too but I love the techniques you've used it really brings it to life.
And that's what I love about this blog it brings me a little bit of life everyday and makes me thankful for what I have.
Love to all
Tracy from killie xx

Alison D said...

Hi Sue, gorgeous card today. The background image is so pretty and the stick pins are always perfect. My daughter and I have started making our own pins now just so they match the cards. Thank you, Sue, for sharing this clever embellishment tip, it makes a big difference to our projects. Love and hugs,
Alison D x

SHARICA said...

Fab card today .. xx

Pam said...

Hello everyone - The pink cast has gone (hurrah), foot and ankle very swollen but consultant pleased with progress. Unable to get a boot on and rather than another cast they have splinted the ankle which can be removed at night. I have to try walking on the foot and exercise the ankle, use crutches for assistance and build up my mobility. Back in 6 weeks for review, physio to be arranged and off work for another 4 weeks as unable to drive yet. A good result I think.
Ita and June, hope your visits to hospital went well, come on girls, lets show them.
Hugs to all and thank you everyone for the good wishes, you really dont know how much it helps.
Cameeli and Norah, you are both AWOL, hope you are well and we miss you both. Would love to see you both back on blog.

Hi Sue love today's card it's very pretty and yes the colour of posh undies!!! Lol. That's a bit racey! Just returned from my uncles funeral in wales - 4 hour journey both ways but worth it to say goodbye - he had a good send off. Rather tired now though. Enjoy your evening Sue. Love Diane G xxx
Pam great news on your leg and Robbie take care and don't overdo it xxx

Myra P said...

Hi Sue,
I just love today's card . The colour combination is beautiful and I'm sure it will look even more beautiful in real life. Love the stick pins today . Always admire them but these are just perfect. Will give this a try but will have to use another large stamp as don't have this one.
Pam - great news! So pleased for you and it must be wonderful to have the cast off! Just take things slowly - freedom and independence are just around the corner! Great news too about Robbie .x

Norah - do hope you are ok ! We do miss you when
you don't comment. Sending a special hug!
I am so tired today I will just leave it there. Still to finish some prep. for tomorrow but Friday's is done!
Sending love to all who are going through tough times and are suffering.
Love to all , Myra
