Best Birthday Wishes

 Hi crafters!  The lovely Tethered Hearts Striplet is creating the basis for today's card.  Starting with a piece of coconut white card, I cut the Tethered Heart striplet insert out of each side.  I selected a piece of dusty rose card from my stash and covered it with a piece of sticky adhesive sheet and coated it with Iced Snow for some bling.  I glued my cut out background on top of it so it showed through the cut outs.  Next, I cut the  reverse of it with the decorative insert cut out of the dusty rose card and the backing piece cut out of the solid white.  I glued the two pieces together and mounted them on foam and added them to the centre of my card.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the tag from the French Collection, inking it with Victorian Velvet distress ink before removing it from the die.  I cut an Austrian tag out of white card and snipped it in half and added the edges behind my sentiment tag.  I placed this in the centre of the striplet to complete the focal element.  I finished off the card with a white pierced mat layer, a thin dusty rose mat and a final wider white mat.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  8 1/2" in size.  Could be a nice one with Valentines day not far on the horizon! A simple change of sentiment would do the trick!    All for now, Sue x

This is a great die set, Sue, the card something similar to the peach and black one (which I loved). Really lends itself to this design - very effective.
Happy new week all!

Hi Sue and all Particraft friends. Wow its a dry morning for once, I dont think ive ever seen SO much hail than ive seen over the past 2 weeks, its been golf balls every day !!!
Its so lovely to start our week with a beautiful Sue card. I didnt have any striplets until your new babies were delivered to us recently, but both Hazel and Patricia make some beautiful cards/gift bags with your striplet dies, so they will adore this mornings W. O. W.
Im hoping to finish the box decorating today and move onto gift tags ! Eventually Im hoping to get my 'special' cards started ! Cmas in our house doesnt start until after my birthday, no cards up (apart from the Cmas card I won) which will be up all year round, so our cards go into the post just before the last Cmas post date, so I still have a little time on my side !
Im hoping to visit our Particraft friends blogs today without my phone crashing ! I had 4 attempts yesterday to post here ! Maybe a new phone contract should be on my list for 2015 !!
As we start a new week Im sending loving thoughts to our friends that are suffering with pain and illness, to our brave lovely friends having treatment, and to those that are down.
Love you.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
from a very dark and wet High Green.
Today's gift is truly beautiful and it would make my day and would be treasured for ever if it came through my letter box.
This is one of your dies that I have not yet purchased and having seen it again used so beautifully this morning is now a definite must have.

It's got to be a 'catching up' day today as although all cards are posted; all presents wrapped and in Santa's Sacks just waiting for the usual chocs/biscuits and then to be delivered I've still to try and do/find eight small gifts for my Knit and Natter friends for a week tomorrow and I just do not have an idea what to do. I've managed to pick up a beautiful (I do not think)chest racking cough/streaming nose etc and a head that feels twice its size so it's not going to be a good start.
So to all under the weather for whatever reason I hope you feel better soon. To everyone take care and stay safe. If going out wrap up well. See you tomorrow.

Really lovely card and probably not too time consuming!

Currently trying to fix downstairs loo - leaking through outlet pipe. Given up for now and just turned water off!!!

To those who we're asking Tilly will be 8 tomorrow! Party and sleepover done just cake for school and. Tilly and friend out for tea and build a bear after school tomorrow! Christmas can start once her birthday is over! Very bad timing!

Today need to finish special Christmas cards and finish wrapping and I should be fairly on track!

Worked til two this morning another shift in " paradise" not! Nhs drowning under the workload! Keep saying I will write a book of the trials and tribulations of A and E over the past 20 plus years.

Well ladies have a productive day. Hugs to those who need them xxx

Saba said...

Hi Sue,
Such a pretty card this morning. I have this Striplet and must confess I have not yet used it on a card yet but when I do I shall use today's card as inspiration. It's lovely.

Had a crafting disaster yesterday. Was so looking forward to making the last of my special Christmas cards using the Let it Snow. First one cut out beautifully, second one and the rotating handle snapped off my Grand C. Wasn't using undue pressure ( learned that lesson when I killed my old wizard!). I am managing to turn the bit of handle still remaining but it is not easy. Now I have to decide - try for a new handle, buy a another Grand C or change brands altogether. Oh well, you have to laugh otherwise you'd cry.

Congratulations to yesterday's lucky winners and loving hugs for those in need.

Hi Sue,
Another beauty for us today! To think that when you launched your first die sets and before I had seen you use them I said I won't by the striplet - won't use that! Crazy!
I use my striplets all the time and that one's a favourite.
Thank you for improving my card making. I too love that dusky pink!
Barbie - hope the party goes well and the sleep over! Can understand about Christmas as my younger grandson has a birthday on the 19th and we try to keep it special. Happy Bithday Tilly for tomorrow.
Janet - poor you! Get well soon. Sending sniffle busting hugs! x
Crafty Jo - so sorry - sending hugs to you too. Thinking of you.
Norah - do hope you are feeling just a little bit better. We all miss you so much but this is not selfish caring - we want to be well again and feel in a better place. Love to you, Rory and Kirsten.
Love to all the others who are missing - including Lynne and Lindsay xx
Love to all,

NOTE TO SABA

email Spellbinders customer services in US - I only asked for a UK stockist of new handles as couldn't find anything online, but they asked for my address and a new one was sent in UK - got it in five days! Free!! Unexpected and hugely pleased. They say in instruction manual: if you have a problem, contact them. Told then I don't think many people would even think of doing that, and said two handles had sold on eBay recently for huge amounts - one over £30 and the other about £26.
Moral of this story - approach Spellbinders direct!!

Tres said...

Hi Sue. This is a great card today !! Iove the striplet dies. I do not have the Teathered Hearts striplet die but it is another one on my huge wish list. Lovely colour combo to. I really like how you have cut two of the striplet dies at opposite ends from the same piece of card and then cut the third striplet in one whole piece and layered it on top with sticky squares. It really brings the card to life !! I also really love how you have used the tag dies from both of your New sets to create a really great focal point for your sentiment to. I have to say that I have your Austrian tag die and it is one of my absolute favourite tag dies at the moment. It has been used for some of my Christmas cards as I think it is so pretty and delicate looking !! It also looks fab covered with the ice snow glitter to !! Thank you for sharing this beautiful card today Sue.
