Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

Hi bloggers!  Today's giveaway card was one of my demos on my shows in February.  I started with a piece of vintage gold card and used the Lyra die (which will be back in stock this week!) and cut it at the bottom of one piece of the card and at the top of the other piece of the card.   I added mounting foam to both pieces to raise them for dimensions.  Using a piece of taupe card, I embossed it with the Bed of Roses embossing folder.  I added some detail by rubbing the pattern with Enchanted Gold gilding wax.  You can see this better in the close up pics below.  I mounted the two die cut pieces of gold card on top, leaving a gap creating a channel.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the inside die from the New York background.  I added a gold mat with the larger die from the background. Using the Camellia complete petal, I made two flowers to add to my sentiment.  I cut some Mosaic Leaves out of taupe and gold card to add to my floral element.  Three flatback cream pearls were added in the upper corner before adding my pierced taupe mat.  A thin gold mat then a wider taupe mat completed the card.  The finished dimensions are 8" 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.  The winner won't be announced until Monday this week, however, as I will be away at the Ally Pally show all weekend.  All for now, Sue x

Beautiful card the dies sold as seen in their packaging do not show their true potential, everyday you create a fabulous card. I have many of your dies and use your ideas to help me create lovely cards. I struggle to make up the flowers they never look as beatiful as yours do. Do you have any tips to recreate the flowers on your blog please.

stunning card

Ecco of Sheffield said...

Morning Sue
We have had a ground frost this morning but the sun is shining so fingers crossed we will get a warm day later on.

I love this gift when I first saw it in February and I'm sure that I'm one of the thousands who have been trying to buy it since then so I'm hoping for success this week-end.
These Gemini dies make all the difference when used as a channel don't they. They just have a very special appeal. As usual my SW space is dusted off in readiness and all that I can cross has been crossed.

Sheila & Nikki - I'm thinking of you both. Just remember one step at a time. Hugs for you.

To all you lucky ladies going to Ally Pally rest for the next 2/3 days and then you can all really enjoy the show.

To all in pain and suffering I hope your days get better. To everyone please take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.
Janet x

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
Today's card is stunning I love your Gemini dies and have used them so many times. Every time you use them differently I always think 'Why didn't I think of that?' Lol.

Hi Sue & friends,
You just cannot beat the gorgeous effect of the Lyra Geminn Die, I guess that's why it sold out, it's just so popular! But when you see cards like this, it's no wonder it's so popular, you really did create a 'winner' there Sue x
I would like to wish Hazel,Jess, Norah & Patricia a fantastic day today, they are all meeting up for the first time, I wish I could join them, I can imagine the laughs that they will be having, it's so fabulous that it all started by just chatting in the Cafe that is my blog,
Of course it was Sue's amazing blog that was inspiration for me to start my own blog!
I hope that you all have amazing day, I am still recuperating from the weekend, trying to get to a good place for Ally Pally at the weekend, anybody who hasn't been before give it a try, it really is a show for card makers and scrapbookers, all of the stands are proper craft stands, there are also some fabulous demonstrations going on all day, it's very accessible for disabled and not too overwhelming either! Give it a try, you won't be sorry!
Love and hugs
Sandra xxxxx

Hi Sue,
Beautiful card - love the Lyra die. Has to be one of my all time favourites. Would make a beautiful wedding / anniversary card.
Didn't get to take my auntie out yesterday - she really wasn't well. Hoping it's just a blip. Might try to take her out somewhere tomorrow if she's up to it.
Maureen, get better quickly.
Love and hugs to all, love Alison xxxx

Hi Sue. Oooh this is a stunning card today !! I love the Vintage Gold and Taupe colour combo. The colours look great together. I really love the way you have used the Lyra Die. I am still trying to get hold of this one so I can't wait until it comes back in stock !! It is so beautiful. You have used a lovely sentiment to. As always your Camelia Dies look fab Sue. I am waiting to get hold of these too !! Your Roses background EF is soooo lovely and is also on my huge wish list !! I am unable to go to Alley Pally on this ocassion and I am very disapointed but I am most certainly going to Alley Palley in September instead. (Hubby has promised to take me and I will be holding him to that promise !! ) Sending you lots of love today Sue Love from Tres x x x

Hi Sue, I popped in early this morning for a quick peek but have only just realised I didn't stop long enough to leave a comment, sorry.
I love today's offering and the soft gold card and roses embossing folder are firm favourites. I hope you are resting up in anticipation of AP, we don't want you having a relapse and ending up in bed again :-)

Alison, so sorry you didn't get to take Auntie out for lunch, fingers crossed for a better day for her.

I like the movement you were able to achieve with the Lyra die cuts. The colors are so rich together. Good job!

Wonderful all over appearance and such elegant colour combo. This is a 'run away winner' in my book.

Very late. Just don't know where the day has gone. Love today's card. So glad I got the Lyra die when I did and the Camillias.
