Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

Hello there my crafty friends!  We have a New York Collection card up for grabs today!  Just leave me a comment on today's post if you would like to be included in the drawing later this month.  I started by cutting two of the Madison Squares in coconut white card, one with the centre cut out.  I stamped my sentiment in the centre of the solid die cut and embossed it in gold.  I added our new strip pearls in white around the inside edge of the frame.  I mounted it in the upper corner of a larger piece of white card.  Using both the Complete petal and the Open Petal Camellia die sets, I created a variety of flowers out of vintage gold card.  I mounted these around the bottom corner of the die along with several Mosaic Leaves, Trailing Ivy and Splendid Swirls (and the twiddlybit that is also part of that set) that I also cut out of coconut white card.  I scattered a few small white flatback pearls around the background as well.  I added a white paper pierced mat layer, then a thin gold card mat and a final white mat to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Lynne Mills said...

Hi Sue, a truly stunning card, love white/gold combo. Lol lynne m x x x

PHASE 1 the BATH is over thank goodness, poochies were quite happy to follow me upstairs until they realised that their towels were up here too and in the bathroom. Managed to grab Cully and get her in the bath unfortunately Tilly decided she could help . It was like trying to hold onto a slippery seal, lucky I rembered to use some hairdresser clips to anchor my glasses to my head cuz last bath time where the little bs jigged around so much my glasses kept coming off!!!!. Eventually got Cully rinsed off, laid the nice big towel on the floor ready shoved Tilly out and picked up Cully , put her down, grabbed the towel at the same time Tilly decided to barge back in knocking me off balance and giving Cully the opportunity for the biggest SHAKE of her life. Walls, bath surround, floor, radiator, door and ME got hit ( you must have guessed with my two that I was already wetter than if I'd had a shower) they should make drying a dog after a bath an olympic sport cuz I definitely deserve a medal. Both done, bathroom tidied, me changed when I noticed the right little b's had gone downstairs. I flew down the stairs into the lounge where right on cue the divas were rubbing themselves all over the settees and scatter cushions. Shrieking for the blighters to get off before I lose what brain cells I have left , the precious princesses ( hubbys term for them) jumped down to then sit and look at me. Lost it then cuz they both looked like they had put their paws in an electric socket cuz their fur was standing up at all different angles. Brushed them down and said that mum needed a well earned sit down, just in time for hubby to come through the door say " my little princesses have had a bath and don't you look good " followed by " Lynne did you get wet?" All I can say is God grant me patience but hurry.

Phase 2 today the haircut and knowing my two things can only get worse.

Lol and hugs to all lynne & clean but for how long devious divas x x x x

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue - a truly lovely card. I do like the way you have off-centred the message as it makes a change from being in the centre and I shall be copying this style as I like the way it leaves plenty of space for embellishment. Love the camelia dies and find myself using these most of the time now. Just wish I could make my buds look as good as yours! Best wishes

Morning Sue
I loved this gift the first time I saw it on your recent C&C Week-end. I have really fallen for white/white with a little pop of colour and today's gift just shouts true elegance and class.
As usual my SW space is dust free and ready along with my hopes for a lucky day.
I hope you're enjoying your well earned holiday and am looking forward to seeing some pictures on your return.

Steph - hope things are going OK for you whilst you're in your 'holiday camp' lol. Don't forget the escape committee are ready and waiting just for your nod to fly into action.
Sheila - both you and Nikki are in my thoughts and prayers.
Pat - now you're home take it steady Baby steps. I'm sure you enjoyed your visit from your other 2 Graces.

Well I finished my first 'Izzy Bag' or my take on one. If I say so myself I rather like the outcome so will be having another go.

To all in pain or suffering I hope your day gets better. To everyone please take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Beautiful card, stunning!
Sorry I didn't leave a comment yesterday. I thought I'd leave one later in the day, but then we decided to play golf as it was so lovely. Have to say this was the first time we've played for a year and a half! Needless to say I was absolutely shattered after it and then forgot to comment! It was a game of two halves as well - the first nine holes were a disaster but the second nine were good fortunately. - so there is hope!
P in Wales, I love my eBosser have had it since they first came out. It cuts easily and embosses beautifully.
Steph hope your stay in hospital is not too bad. Wheely hope you're feeling better today and hope things go well next week.
Lynne I've been laughing at the pooches antics at bath Time! I used to resign myself to the fact that I would end up soaking wet so used to shower our dog in my underwear or less. - not a pretty sight I hasten to add! - but at least it saved me having to dry all my clothes!!
Love and hugs to all, Alison xx

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and the fabulous Wilsonettes,
WOW Sue this is stunning today, absolutely stunning. What a beautiful wedding card this would make for my special niece who is getting married later this year and one that i know she would keep. Must get the other dies to make it so they have jumped to the top of the list. Thank you Sue for giving such stunning inspiration.
Oh Lynne, just think the bathroom might have needed cleaned from top to bottom and the precious princesses were just helping you to achieve this all at the same time saving you another trip up the stairs and extra water so were on conservation watch you see. You just don't appreciate just how thoughtful your little baby girls can be ;D. Sorry couldn't resist, did you get hurt when they did their tag act getting out of the ring? When i used to bath Milly(mum's wee dog)it was down to the undies as i didn't have a wet suit of even one of those rainsuits that the kiddies have for splashing in puddles now as that and well and you would be away(although i am not saying where to).
Lorraine, i hope you have a lovely happy birthday flower and that you get at least something that we consider of use and not something for the kitchen or bathroom like i get. Have a great day.
Sheila and Nikki sending you hugs and prayers in the hope that they help you get through this most difficult of times.
Well it is like the frozen north up here today so i am going to pin out the two shawls i have knitted for Kirsten's friends who have just had twin girls, Erin and Isla. So i shall wish everyone a lovely day and see you all tomorrow hopefully. Sending hugs to all my angels both on blog and not at the moment.

Good morning Sue and friends,
Stunning c rd today Sue, I love how you have used the Camellia dies to make those cute little roses, so pretty, the added touch of gold would make it a great Golden Wedding card. I hope you are having are having a relaxing break and that you have been dazzled by the Aurora Borealis!
Sue and I gad a lovely afternoon yesterday, firstly we visited our crafty sister Pat , it was such a delight to see her up and about and laughing too, we did have a giggle, hopefully Pat will be up to a bit of crafting next week,
Sue and I then came back here and we were determined to get an Izzy bag made, Sue made hers all in cream card, she said it was her prototype, so I wasn't allowed to photograph it! I finished mine, I went for a brown and cream theme and the finished bag is on my blog today, feel free to pop across, although I will warn you there are a crazy bunch of ladies in the 'cafe' , but we have lots of giggles !
Lynne M, my oh my you were a very brave last attempting the bathing of Tilly & Cully, I had the picture of two perfectly groomed and fluffy pooches and you stood there with water dripping from your hair and clothes! You poor thing! I hope you got dried off and warmed up. Love and hugs x
Alison, I am glad you took advantage of that gorgeous weather yesterday and enjoyed a game of golf, I ts not something I could ever attempt but there are some amazing sights to enjoy, there is a stunning golf course just by where we stay in Spain, it would be a treat just to walk round it and take in the breathtaking views!
Well I must go and see what the kittens are up to ad there is a bit of a commotion coming from the hall way.
Love and hugs to all,
Sandra xxxxxxxx

Hi Sue
Love the colours on this card, and you have used the roses that I like. Got the full petal camellia dies at the weekend,and have tried making a couple of flowers, they were far from perfect, but I will persevere until I get it right. I have arthritus in my hands, so this doesn't help. Do you have the instructions for making the different flowers in pdf form? I think this would help.

The vintage gold flower on this card is so nice and with the gold sentiment makes this look so good....Very nice card.

Cathie Weary said...

Wow, absolutely stunning card today Sue. Just love everything about it. Had no idea what the twiddlybits were until I saw you demo it. Wonderful idea. It adds just that little bit of whimsy to an arrangement of flowers. Would love to own one of your masterpieces. Hope you are enjoying your holiday.

Hi Sue .....another lovely card, stunning in fact. Love the Camelia die flowers. Tried various stockists for those dies and yet all out of stock. I will keep trying as I simply love them.
You can do lots of things with them. Such a very adaptable card, by adding different coloured flowers.

Hugs to you all. Dorothy xx

redfox said...

I really like the New York collection and best of all I actually have it! So I love seeing what you design using these dies, your cards are always an inspiration and this one's no different. Love it! Love to everyone especially if today is a difficult one for whatever reason, I understand difficult days! Sarah

Another proper 'Sue' card full of Heather T's lushisnees which made me laugh. Love the swirly dies and twiddly bits. Altogether gorgeous, who wouldn't want to win this?!
Sorry, Sue, didn't say thank you yesterday for the video.

Thanks Norah and Alison for comments re eBosser - one cross and one tick so am left on the fence! Would like to try it out also the new Sizzix Plus, but not well served for craft outlets here. Will have a long think.

Lovely card again Sue. Such a clean, bright fresh looking card with just enough colour. Like others I have been trying to get the camelia dies, everybody wants them because of the beautiful samples you have made with them. Guess I just have to be patient!

Hi Sue, stunning card and I love the flowers and foliage. It would indeed make a perfect wedding or anniversary card.

Suzzette Yandle said...

Even though your card is mostly white on white, you manage to create the most lovely of designs incorporating such dimension as to draw your eye into the collage. Those gold camellia flowers are splendid. Yes, I would love to win this card!

A stunning card - love it all - love the twiddly bits too - I have not seen this die (can't believe that) and make paper twirls using a wooden bamboo stick but s bit fiddly - I put some on a card a few posts ago but not sure how sturdy they are so will have to look out for this die xx GailT xx

Wheely Bad said...

Hi Sue

Amazing, stunning... just beautiful. Gold on white works so well and I think I'll try this for my step mum's 50th.

Quickie today, rotten headache all day due to neck spasm and computer/ phone screens are not helping!

Sorry it's short, hopefully I'll get my act together tomorrow before my P.A. takes me to pick up my "magic glasses" to hopefully stop seeing the world in stereo! Seeing one of my Dads tomorrow evening to buy him a birthday dinner, so will be busy tomorrow. If I don't stop by before town I'll be popping in before bedtime

Hugs to Steph, hope your stay in hospital will help, happy birthday Lorraine, hugs and best wishes, Still thinking of Sheila and Nikki xxx I know a few of my Wilsonette freinds have injuries at present so big hugs to all of you. Hugs and happy crafty wishes to Wilsonettes everywhere, extra hugs if you are ill, recovering or in any sort of pain.

Good night,

T x
