Happy Birthday

 Good Sunday morning all!  This one happens to say Happy Birthday, but could easily be for a wedding, anniversary or just thinking of you (it was probably just the handiest sentiment stamp at the time!LOL)  Using the Bevelled Glass striplet, I cut a background by continuously cutting the die three times across a piece of coconut white card.  It is amazingly easy to line up and cut each time so you have a quick background ready to go.  I placed a self adhesive sticky sheet behind it so the adhesive was exposed through the cut out areas on the front.  I coated it with Diamond Sprinkles for a blingey tone on tone white card.  Next I gave it a thin white mat and added white flatback pearls to the some of the cut out areas.  Using the Delicate Daisy Open Petal die set, I cut several and layered them up to make two different sized white flowers.  I added a pearl to the centres then seated them on a piece of white tulle to the left side of my card.  I stamped my sentiment (from the Cr. Exp. Bold Sentiment stamp set) using a clear Perfect Medium pad and heat embossed it with Silver Shine embossing powder.  I cut it into a strip and ran the Brushed Pewter Distress stain dabber along both sides to edge it.  I added some mounting foam to the back and tucked the end under my flower.  I completed my card with a white paper pierced mat, a thin silver card mat and a final white mat.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  8" in size.

Now for the Weekly Comment Game winners.  This week's winners are:
Helen Bell!!!
Nina Spear!!!

I don't think I've ever been first to comment. Good morning Sue.
I really like this card. It looks delicate and intricate but understated. I bet it's looks even better than the photo in your hand.
Gorgeous. Another one to try.
Happy Sunday everyone. I wish mine was. I really hope it gets better as the only reason for this very early visit is due to chronic pain in my lower back.
Enjoy your day
Congratulations to the winners. Lucky lucky you.
Lots of love

Morning Sue.

Heather Rogers said...

Very elegant Sue. As for a DVD. I personally like others just save your videos from you tube to my computer so it is not for me. However there seems to be a good positive response. Maybe sell them through Joanna Sheen then there would be no p+p!

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
I love the way your striplet dies look when used straight across your card. Today's gift as you say can be used for any occasion and one I could have ready made up without it's sentiment and therefore just waiting to be used. White/White is just the colour palette I love and so today's gift has everything I just need so a big Thank You is needed from me.

I managed yesterday to use your striplet die from your last launch to do just this yesterday as I do not have today's die and it looks just wonderful. Oops shouldn't have said that 'self praise is no recommendation' as I was always taught.

The weather forecasters for once got it right and we had snow all day yesterday. We haven't had any more overnight but it's very very icy this morning. The garden looks very pretty but the bird tables are going to need clearing so the little feathered friends can feed today.

To all in pain or suffering I hope your day gets better. To everyone please take care and stay safe. The lights have just dipped so am prepared for a power cut. Nothing unusual here so off I go to get my coffee before it happens. See you tomorrow.

Sunday smiles to you Sue and all winning Wilsonettes today.
Elegant,stunning, delicate and expensive looking. Sometimes less is more and speake's volumes, this is what today's card says to me. It's a "look at me, Im beautiful and graceful"
It's not a die I own at present but Its on Mr L's list he asked for, he wanted a list of those I have and have not, so roll on Valentine's day...
To our Jo, sorry to read you are so uncomfortable this morning, I hope the pain ease's as the day goes on.
Sending love to all Wilsonettes today those staying to say "Hi" and to those not feeling so good.
Your garden sounds so pretty Janet.
Love to all.

Congratulations to the winners - enjoy your prize.
Thanks to everyone yesterday for the lovely comments, it really made my day and I felt better than I have for a week and a bit! Even Dave noticed I'd cheered up!
Jo sorry to hear you're not feeling too well yourself. Please be careful . You have my sympathy as back pain is awful. Hugs to you.
Hope everyone has a good day. Love and hugs to all, especially those under the weather. Love Alison xxx

Such a stunning, versatile card, can see it could be for any occasion. I'm thinking along the lines of a man's card, adding cogs, wheels or clocks instead of flowers.

Hi Sue

This has got to be in my top two of all time. White on white is so classy and the strip dies can be changed to create the same effect, as can the sentiment. Just love the overall effect

Tres said...

Hi Sue. A gorgeous card today !! I really love it !! Well I always love all your cards any way !! Today's is just as stunning. This particular Striplet Die is one of my most favourite and most used of all your Striplet Dies. I have made loads of cards with this one. It is one of my "go to" dies. A real "must have". I love my ice snow glitter so I will be using this instead of the diamond glitter as I just have to have a go at this card Sue !! I really love your White on White cards but I have still not made one yet. I really love the Daisy Dies to,they are gorgeous !! Just like you say Sue, a change of sentiment and the card could be used for many different occasions. Thanks for sharing this gorgeous card today.
Although I have not been around for a few days (can't keep up with life at the moment with this illness.) I still look in every day at your beautiful cards Sue. Every single one of them is as beautiful as the previous one. (Video's too.) I just don't know how you do it Sue. Well actually I do know, the designs of all your dies, stamps and background EF's are just second to none !! I very rarely use any others now. A BIG THANK YOU SUE for everything. X x x
Sending you much love and plenty of hugs today Sue. I can't wait now, to see you back on our screens on c+c. Take care love Tres x x x


Congratulations to all of today's lucky winners !!
Congratulations also to yesterday's lucky card winner !!

Hi Sue

Very elegant. I'm another who has this die and has it at number one for versatility. Man cards, lady cards, as an additional on kits or with stamps... a true all rounder. I need those sentiment stamps as small sentiments often get lost!

Got to be quick as Mr W will be back with the shopping very soon.

Congratulations to the winners, enjoy your prizes x

Joanna I hope your back eases. I know (as do others) how horrible it is when it wakes you up. Hope you are up to some crafting to distract you from it for a little while, Hugs x

Got to print and finish the last of the paperwork today. Would rather curl up and sleep but already had 2 extensions. Cold weather and I just don't suit and I understand the draw of hibernation! Billy happily using my blanketed legs as a dog bed at present so not a lot getting done as once the shopping is away we have a light lunch and I will lock myself away... Billy is a big dog who likes a big amount of attention so I shall leave he and Mr W to it for a few hours and get things finished. Not before time too!

Happy Sunday, stay warm, safe and enjoy a relaxing afternoon crafting, Hugs to you all, extra if you need them,

Hi Sue,
This is my first ever blog comment so I hope I am doing it correctly (not too clever with computers). I have followed your blog for many months and decided it was time to tell you how gorgeous your cards are and that you give me so much inspiration. I also like reading about your Wilsonettes, they are so friendly. Today's card is lovely, the striplet is very versatile. Another for my growing list of SW dies.
Hope to be back tomorrow if I am doing this the right way!
Take care all

Brenda Lello said...

Hello Sue , WOW what a stunning card. I love it .......... AND I have the dies to do my take on this one.
I used this die with my 8yr old Grandaugh some time ago. She chose ginger and custard card with gold behind the striplet - and was so proud of her efforts. It was really good, her Mum couldn't believe she had made it.

Congratulations to all of the winners, enjoy. LOL

Take care Sue, love Brenda xxx
