Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

Hi crafters!  I have chosen the demo card with the paper grouting technique as this week's card giveaway.  I used a piece of vintage silver card and embossed it with the Bed Of Roses embossing folder.  Next I used the Polar White Sparkle Texture paste and a plastic palette knife and spread it into the lines from the embossing to effectively "grout" them.  You need to allow it to dry well (I always leave them overnight myself).  I ran a bead of Cosmic Shimmer  dries clear glue all the way around the edge of the piece and coated it with Iced Snow.  This dries very quickly, ten minutes at most.  Next I cut four of the Madison Square in coconut white card, using the inner square as well to create frames out of all of them.  I off set two of them and glued them together, then did the other two the same way.  Then I glued each of them together, offsetting them once again to create  an almost round shape from all the squares!  I added them with mounting foam to my background.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it into a forked strip and matted it with silver card.  I mounted it across my focal element and added a white satin ribbon bow, some silver twine, Mosaic Leaves and a pretty flower made from my Complete Petal Camellia.  I "sugared" it with Iced Snow too.  I finished the card with a white pierced mat, a thin silver mat and a wider white mat.  The finished dimensions are
7 1/4" x  7 1/4" in size.  If you would like to be included in the drawing to win this one, just leave me a comment and check back on Saturday's post for the winner's name to be announced.

I am doing the POTD shows today at 12 (on Create and Craft), 1pm  (on Ideal World), 3pm (on Create and Craft), 5pm (on Create and Craft) and 7pm (on Ideal World).  John Lockwood will be doing the 8am, 10am and 4pm shows on Ideal World too.  Please tune in to see all the great demos we have planned!  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue
in reference to the 9pm show which I enjoyed tremendously,
just wanted to say that I loved how you did the weaving dies demo and explained it so clearly.
The technique is fantastic and looks amazing, WOW Brilliant! is all I can say and your dies are all must haves. Each one is just simply gorgeous. x

June said...

Morning Sue, oh I must tell you I feel in love with this card when you demo's it and would love to win it, such a fantastic card, I really love it.

I have been using some of the weaving dies to make a few cards over the past couple of days, hope you like them, they are so versatile you would not believe. Oh and don't throw away the cut outs because they make lovely striplets as well - your tip Sue.

Loved the show last night and am recording todays as out at craft club.

Have a great Wednesday everyone, stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

GM Sue. Fab card. Wow! Saw the launch show last night. Great. But didn't make the 11pm show. Bed was calling! Still suffering with this virus a bit. It just won't give it up it seems. Will be watching later for more fab demos.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

Morning Sue
from a beautiful sunny Burgundy.
I love today's gift when I saw you demonstrate it last time on C&C. It definitely gives a totally different look to your Efolders.
Today's gift is one of those that appears very difficult to create when in fact it's really quite simple and very achieveable just how you want your dies to do for we crafters.

Good luck for today although I know you really don't need it. I can see sell outs everywhere.
As I cannot see you on TV and my net here is very hit and miss sometimes I had a sneak peak last night and made my purchases then so I'm hoping they will be waiting for me on my return to the UK next week.

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

Elaine Sabey said...

Will be watching when I can today , hope you enjoy your day with John and all at C and C ,

Anonymous said...

Great card today, Sue, love the grouting technique (but perhaps not one for me to try!) Used to have silver lace effect bedroom curtains with a shimmer just like this - liked them a lot, too.
Nice to see you and Shaun colour-coordinated with the purple themed set - couldn't have been a coincidence ha ha.
So glad to already have the noble rectangles sets, would have bought them if hadn't got them! Brilliant demo with the weaving dies, all now understood.
Hey Sandra - what a lovely card to have won and Izzy - another show off of your charming bags.
Will look forward to the noon show, can't watch them all unfortunately.

Hope they all go well.

Linda28 said...

Morning Sue, An absolutely beautiful card today, love everything about it. Have not tried the grouting method yet, must buy some! the list gets longer and longer, lol. Did watch your first show last night and it was fabulous, but must admit I did nod off a couple of times. Hectic few days, my Very first Great Grandson made his entrance into the world, a roller coaster time , but wonderful care by our doctors and nurses, so very pleased and exstatic that they are both doing well now, Just seen him the once as yet, but lots and lots of cuddles to come. Hugs to all, Linda.

Well done Sandra and how good of Izzy to put her sweet little bags in for the draw, thank you Izzy : )

An elegant card that is going to make someone a very happy receiver of your gift. This is the first time I have seen the grouting technique. Love the many layers you built up on the card and all of its textures. Sue, you are an amazing designer!

Lorraine Eastwood said...

I am super excited today and plan to overdose on your shows despite the glorious weather outside.
It is wonderful to see you again, I can't get enough of your demos, I especially liked your paper weaving technique last night. I spent an obscene amount on your new dies, it's just so hard to choose though-wish I could have them all! Good luck with the rest of your shows, I have Sky+ them all so I can watch again and again and again:-)xxx

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Stunning card, I think it has a very wintery feel but just love it all the same. Think the grouting technique is brilliant. Have been at work all day so haven't yet seen any of the shows but they are all in for record. Did manage to order a couple of bits missing from my collection though!!!

Deb Curtis said...

Hi Sue, been so busy not been able to check out your blog for a couple of days and only caught snippets of the C&C shows. Got my order in early & can't wait for my dies to arrive. Thank goodness for the DVD recorder, it's been working overtime!!
This card is gorgeous, very frosty look to it. And yesterday's was absolutely stunning.
Thanks so much for sharing all your expertise. It really makes a huge difference having all your demos to show us the potential of each die/Efolder. Have a great evening, blessings - Deb C xx

Gorgeous card Sue
Watched the 9pm show which was fantastic, so glad you did the weaving dies again.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I caught your first show last night and have just finished watching your last one. Both shows were great and now I am going to catch up on the ones I have missed.
I liked this card when I saw you demo the technique earlier in the year but the close-up pictures really tell the story, it is beautiful.
I hope you can relax this evening and put your feet up. Pizza anyone?

Christine Williamson said...

Well I tried so hard to win one of your cards on C&C today but alas, no luck :( Perhaps I'll have better luck on here :) You have had a very busy day but I fully enjoyed watching all of yours and John's shows today!

This is a beautiful card as always Sue. Absolutely gorgeous! x

Hello Sue
I am back home today after a lovely break in Oxfordshire and Wiltshire where the sun shone on us most of the time.
I love your card today with Silver and White. I am looking forward to watching all your shows which I have recorded.
Love Lesley S x

hotpotato said...

Enjoyed your 5pm show Sue, sadly couldn't catch the other shows. I had happy post today as I'd two of your new dies arrive. x

Wheely Bad said...

Hi Sue

I just had to say a big thank you and well done to you, and John. I had the Nobels and a few of the greeks and couldn't pick fron the rest so brought one of each of a diagonal, a gemini and a corner set. I did email in so you knew I'd been mostly watching! Also a huge thank you to Julia Watts, Deborah and Izzy for their amazing samples.

Boiler died again. Hoping it stays cloudy and the temperature stays up! Spent unwelcome parts of the day sorting out my boiler and vacuum cleaner woes. We have temporary traffic lights outside so Billy spent all day barking at the cars that wrre pulling up outside So on top of a back screaming for a day in bed (no such luck- nurse tomorrow and still haven't heard when they're finishing the door job) I have ear ache too thanks to Bills noise! He's like a grizzly, overtired toddler at present as he usually sleeps during the day so I can't be too harsh. Just managed to get him up next to me so hopefully he'll go to sleep. When Mr W goes to bed I can watch back what I missed.

On that note I'll bid farewell to you all. Hugs all round, lots extra if you need them and hoping tvat if you have pain it is reduced soon.
