Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

 Hello bloggers!  Time for another giveaway card and I have selected this one that I demoed back in July on the Justrite shows that I shared with Julia Watts.  I started with the background and inked my Checkerboard Pinpoint embossing folder with Clear Perfect Medium.  I ran it through my Grand Calibur with a piece of black card, transferring the ink from the folder to the floor of the folder design.  I covered the card with clear embossing powder and heated it for a glossier look, which helped the raised pattern stand out more.  It just gives a bit of interest to the background without being overwhelming.  I wrapped a piece of dusty rose satin edged organza around the card in both directions and taped the ends to the back.  I tied a double bow and added it to the intersection with glue dots.  I topped the bow with a black crystal sparkler and made two matching stick pins as well.  For the focal element, I stamped the Rose Bouquet stamp by Justrite using a Black Archival ink pad on to coconut white card.  I cut it out with my California Collection Decorative Frames Set B die and inked it with Victorian Velvet while still in the die.  I removed it and stamped my sentiment (from the Rose Bouquet set as well) in the open area below the flowers.  The stamp itself is actually larger than the die and it cut off part of the leaves, so I stamped it again on a separate piece of card and cut out a few of the leaves and the flowers separately.  I used the leaves  added on top to cover the parts where the stamp was cut off.  It just makes it appear more finished that way.  I gave the flowers a bit of dimension with a ball stylus and added them atop the first stamped set.  I used Distress markers to colour the entire image and extra leaves. I added a bit of Diamond Snow to the flowers for bling too.   I added my focal piece with foam to the centre of my card.  To complete the card, I added a pierced white mat layer, then a thin black mat and a final whit mat.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x  8 1/4" in size.  If you would like to be included in the drawing to win this one, just leave me a comment (directions are on the side of my blog if you have never done it before).  I will draw a winner and announce it on Saturday's blog post.  All for now, Sue x

Was just catching up with all your shows on C&C and when you was gilding and you mentioned it looked like it had texture because of the different sized flakes I thought it reminded me of frosted glass panes, imagine it in the silver even the gold, it looked like a window would frost up with all that beautiful textured look!! loving everything and you love to win a card today too, stunning work Sue,love that dusky pink, hugs always Vick xx

Norah, you description of your part is Scotland was so beautiful, worthy of being on a tourist advertisement. You make it come alive for me.
Sandra, well done to Sophie and Lucy for their Bronze Awards, told you they would be fine. You and Paul have such a close relationship, it is heartwarming, enjoy your couple of days together.
Alison my thoughts are with you and your Auntie..
Hope all the hubbies are feeling better today, they can be such a worry.
Hugs to all, hope Steph is having a good time, our weather has turned chilly and damp here.

June said...

Morning Sue, Pam and all Wilsonettes, such a beautiful card today Sue, I remember watching the programme when you made this, especially the over hanging leaves.......amazing isn't it what sticks in your mind. You are such an inspiration to me and of course everyone else, thank you.

Vick I agree with you about the gilding flakes, the mind boggles with ideas.

I am off to our Wednesday morning craft club today so have to be quick and get ready, enjoy your day everyone.

To the lucky winner of this card, congratulations, you really do get a real masterpiece when you own one of Sue's cards.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, June Smith xxx

Enjoy your day.

Gorgeous card again, Sue, just love the dusky pink with black and like the embossed checkerboard. Fab bow and stickpins, too! Always in awe of your 'colouring in', another art unfortunately not achieved yet.

Hi Sue
A beautiful card love the roses, I am trying to make the bows I'm getting there it is hit and miss getting them right with my dodgy thumbs.
Norah I wish I could have been on a train to visit after your description of where you live it sounds so idilic love and hugs to you and your family.
Gentle hugs for Leo and Skylar and to Meg hope you can give the little ones lots of cuddles.
To all who are ill or taking care of others I send huge hugs and love.
I have been having a play with my christmas dies and made 10 up now and still have some bits to make some more cards, still not made up my mind what design to do for my 'specials'.
Happy crafting all
Love Tina x x x x x x

Good morning Sue and everyone. Gorgeous card, the pinpoint folder is a favourite as it goes with any sort of card, a bow and a bit of sparkle and I'm totally happy!
Alison (alimecca)- sorry we couldn't organise better weather for you yesterday afternoon but glad you enjoyed your day. I hope that you and your aunt have some positive news today. Norah, you should work for the tourist board - we all want to visit your beautiful hills. Congratulations to your girls Sandra. Hugs to all. Sue xxx

Vick said...

Oh and Sue, I hope im not teaching you to suck eggs here but when you say about vellum that it may break while embossing I get around it with copier paper, I always add a piece of copier paper at either side of the vellum to prevent the breakage but if its parchment paper I only use 1 piece of copier paper, doesnt always work but 9 times out of 10 it does!! And im guessing you probably are aware of it but it may help someone else reading this, hugs xx Vick

Good morning Sue
What a truly stunning card today, I love the dusky rose and black together and the stamp you've used is very pretty. That's a brilliant idea to stamp the image again because the stamp was bigger than the die. I have seen you do this before and used it on a few occasions so thanks for the idea.
Norah I love Scotland and have visited there quite a few times. The scenery is breathtaking and I think it matches my beloved Wales.
Sandra you must be so proud well done to the girls.
Janet hope all went well yesterday

Cameeli are you okay as your messages don't seem to be you!! Forgive me if you are fine as it could just be me.

Off to see my Mum today so hope I don't get told off too much - I am over 50 now and you think I would know better.

foxyg said...

Lovely card Sue. The stamp is gorgeous.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Having not like the recent gifts with black being the prominent colour today's gift has made a dint in my reasoning. I think it's because the ribbon covers a lot of it along with the focal element which is absolutely gorgeous. Sue you really do make me step outside of my box sometimes. Nicely of course. So today's gift is beautiful and it's place is still reserved and waiting. Finger/toes etc crossed.

Alimecca- Your day yesterday was absolutely fantastic (and I wasn't there in body but definitely in spirit along with Mr E).First steam trains and then Whitby and TRENCHERS for fish and chips - you don't get better than that. Mr E will be drooling when I tell him of your day.
Norah - I have just left Whitby and am now in your beautiful land of Scotland with you. I love this kind of travel as it allows me to meet up with friends! You definitely finished my day on the up side.
Sandra - very much well done to your gorgeous girls. They are made just as strong as their Mum aren't they! Your day of picking sloes for one of my favourite drinks 'sloe gin' sounds just beautiful. I finished making ours a week or so ago.

Well my visit yesterday went reasonably well. I though it would be my last visit but no they have taken me off one of my tablets and so want to see me in three week's time to check for any affects. Sometimes I just feel like a yo yo. going from one medical dept to another. This also means that our trip to Burgundy has to be put back by 10days. I know it doesn't sound much but I love to see the garden change for Autumn and I need to organise the borders ready for winter. OK whinging over at least I'll get there.

To all who are feeling a little under the weather hope you feel better soon and to everyone take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

Norah you live in such a beatiful part of the UK I always thought our lovely Wales had beautiful scenery till I paid a visit to Scotland and I was blown away with the dramatic hills up there..we travelled all around the west side and it was stunning...and as it was in winter we had snow which made it all the more stunning.
Sandra well done to your girls you much be so proud.

Good morning Sue. This is a really pretty card. Every time I see that stamp it calls to me, but it will just have to wait. I too love that embossing folder but have never tried making it shiny. That's a trick for later today. Tomorrow is my little one's 18th and she's just come down with an ear infection. As all your followers know, life can be very unfair! xx Maggie (better without a bow)

I am liking the recent heartfelt creations stamps that have been on the telly recently and have bought a few - however not this particular one. Love the card.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and my Wilsonette Angels,
The black broken up by the dusky pink ribbon & the topper. The topper is so beautiful and comes alive with the decoupage leaves and roses. It has been coloured beautifully. Thank you for all the hard work that you put in as it is so very much appreciated by us.
Frances, i hope your holiday home is giving you a lot of happiness and recharging your batteries again. See you when you come back for coffee soon i hope.
Craftynanna,sorry to read your hubby hasn't been well, but i hope that whatever it was has passed and he will be back on his feet again soon.
Sheila(Ginger) Glad that you had a fun day out with your auntie and uncle. I bet that you just made that couples day in going with them. Memories are made from acts of kindness and love.
Alison(Alimecca), hope everything goes ok for your aunt today at the hospital, thinking of you both as i know what a worry it is. I must admit to having a thing about steam trains myself as they seem more alive than the electric or diesels, with more character. I have been to Whitby a couple of times with mum and dad when i was younger, but mum has a necklace made of Whitby jet that she has had since she was 15 and it is stunning.
Brenda, if i remember back correctly your parents knew if you had been up to something well before you came tottering back home, but it was the innocuous questions that they would ask you when you came through the door testing you to see if you would own up or tell fibs. Boy did you get it if you told fibs or you actually told the truth but because certain little scunners would tell their mum & dad lies, and were seen through rose coloured glasses, but liars will always get found out and hoisted by their own petard.
Sandra, just wanted to say a big well done to both Sophie and Lucy on their achievements of gaining bronze D of E. I take my knitting with me when Campbell goes fishing just so that i am doing something with the time. The peaceful water with the quietness from all around apart from the odd bird or two chirping. So you sitting crafting while Paul is at the allotment sounds every bit as peaceful. Have a great day and go canny on the gin and sloes for pain relief(hee hee hee).
I am so glad that so many of you can picture my beautiful surroundings. As with ever where else my scenery changes with the seasons, with the autumn being my favourite i think because of all the different coloured leaves and trees. There is a woodland walk not 5 minutes from me and when the trees start shedding their leaves it is so beautiful to walk through the canopy of trees. I thinking the fact that we used to walk for miles as children and teenagers, it gave me a happiness to find the different trees and leaves. I am quite sure a number of you did bark rubbings with crayons or did collages up with dried leaves when you were younger, the wonderment just hasn't left me somehow. As i say i had a wonderful childhood with the different things that we did and all not costing a penny(which we didn't have any way). Today's children have missed out in a lot of freedom and fun just because of life' pace now and the electronic age where they all seem glue to some kind of device 24/7. Kirsten doesn't have the imagination that i or even Rory has. She can't seem to see anything that what it is originally for, but Rory can see my pictures from my minds eye and can see his own as well. It's a shame that todays children can't enjoy the world that is around them the same as some of us have always been able to. Anyway from my beautiful glowing hills with the red from the sun shining on them this morning i will go and leave you all with hugs to my Angels where ever you are today,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (glenochil)

Good Morning Sue (Just! :) )

So busy at the moment no time to check blogs even. This is a lovely card and a break from the usual type of card that you do. I love the colours and the flowers are coloured beautifully.

Have a good weekend

I love love love the background of this card. Sooooo different. I didn't see the shows with yourself and Julia so this is a first for me. As usual thanks for sharing.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW this is stunning Sue !! I love it !! The background folder looks wonderful. This is an item on my Birthday wish list so I am keeping my fingers crossed !! The ribbon really looks great and it stops the card from looking too black. I love the Californian dies and the justrite rose stamp just looks beautiful stamped, coloured in and slightly decoupaged. More dusky pink colour. I just love it. Teamed with black and white it looks like the perfect match.
Just like the sentiment you have used Sue, I would like to say a heartfelt thanks to you to for everything you do for us Wilsonettes. You really do brighten up my day !!
I hope you have a lovely day today Sue love and hugs from Tres x x x

Norah, thinking of you and your family today love and special hugs from Tres x x x

To all the Wonderful Wilsonettes, I hope everyone has a good day today. Sending you all lots of love from Tres x x x

Lesley Griffiths said...

Simply stunning. I must remember this trick with the leaves to use on an image too large for the die cut. Happy Days

SusanP, Kent said...

I remember this one and thinking at the time how the ribbon so beautifully co-ordinated with the rose. I love that the dies in this collection each have a different decorative edge.

Cathie Weary said...

I remember seeing the demo on this beautiful card. Love the way you added the extra leaves. You are so talented and we are so fortunate that you share your beautiful cards with us.

Lesley Cann said...

I absolutely love this card. The stamp and the dusty pink colour are so great. I have used this stamp quite a lot as it lends itself to many colours.

TOB said...

Simply gorgeous,I love to colour with distress markers.
Hugs to all Theresa x

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I too remember your demo of this card. I loved it then and love it even more now that I can see it in close-up. There is plenty of room on my walls for a Sue original :-).
Norah - I'll be in touch when I am free.

CraftyJo said...

Great colouring on your flowers Sue, and I like the way you've added those extra leaves.

Barbara said...

Beautiful card done in such pretty colours. I don't think Justrite have made a stamp I haven't liked, they are such high quality.

yorkshiresue said...

Diane Maitland said...

Sue, sorry I haven't been commenting on your fabulous cards recently. I am in a bit of limbo at the moment. No physio until I go back to the Fracture Clinic on Friday so am feeling a bit sorry for myself.
As always your cards have been wonderful. A fantastic mix of colours, ideas and styles.
I have been told by 'fluffy cat' that I have been missed by a few of your followers so I would like to thank them for thinking of me.
Happy crafting everyone. Diane xxx

Kathy Krug said...

hi sue, what an absolutely beautiful card, i remember you doing this one as well, didn't you say we wouldn't be able to get the ribbon as it was discontinued, or am i thinking of another ribbon, i will try the embossing folder tecnique when i get my raspberry plate on friday, thank you for your continued inspiration.
hubby has slept most of the day, probably because of the change in his medication, i think he is finding it hard not being able to drive because he has driven since he was seventeen, a total of 55yrs, thank you norah and yorkielass for your kind thoughts it does help, and thank you all for the daily cyber hugs, regards to all J

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Yet another beautiful card especially when I consider pink isn't my thing. Love the Justrite stamps and in particular the way that both you and Julia use them.

Meg said...

This is a beautiful card Sue, I love roses. Still haven't watched your last programmes - I think I'll save them for dark nights to cheer me up.

Dear Nana Tina thanks again for the hugs for our two babies. Sadly no cuddles yet as Leo is down in Kent and Skylar is in the Cayman Islands. Both babies are doing very well though.

Love and hugs to all.
Meg. xxxx

Hi Sue, I really love this card, it's got some of my favourite things, ribbon, bows, a dazzler and most of all those wonderful pins. What a wonderful card for the Wednesday give-away. Got everything crossed :). As always, thanks for sharing with us. x

Txcowgirl said...

Hi Sue,
Beautiful card this week, love the dusty rose and black.
Have had to spend a few unexpected days in bed, so I've spent all this time watching your YouTube videos on Apple TV, and loving every minute of them. You make having to recuperate much more tolerable.
Now, I am so excited, placed my first order through Joanna Sheen for several dies, some Guilding Flakes, glue, and a Stamp. She even had a few of the dies on special. Not even for sure the exact figure, get differing amounts of dollars to pounds, but I have a range, so I'm thankful my birthday is coming up soon, a great excuse for a present. I will be anxiously watching for the mailman until it arrives.
Watching the videos I get tickled at some of the expressions. I noticed cute little things you say differently, like "kitchen roll" instead of "paper towels", and "rubbish bin", instead of "trash can". I really enjoy these subtle differences in language. I'm a Texan living now in Arkansas. I live in a border city, only a few blocks from Texas, but on the Texas side of town, a "Coke" means any carbonated beverage except Dr.Pepper, not true in Arkansas. Funny little differences. Enjoy reading the comments from all the ladies here, and I hope my Texas vernacular is understood in the kind way I intend it too.
Anyway, thanks for the lovely things you make for us to use, and for the videos you share.
