For You

Good Sunday morning all!  It has been a lovely week, full of winners and many more today from the weekly comment game as well!  I have a rather simple card for you but it is very striking I think!  I started by cutting a piece of coconut white card and simply using the cutting edge from the Carina die set on one side of it.  Next I embossed that piece of card using the Bed Of Roses embossing folder.  I cut the Carina die out of another piece of white card using the opposite cutting edge on the bottom of it.  I glued it into place under my embossed piece so the pretty decorative edge showed and the cut edge on the embossed piece lined up with the die cut.  I cut a strip of black card and covered it with a sticky adhesive piece.  I peeled the backing off and coated it with Ebony Ice and glued it in place underneath my die cut edge.  I cut a length of scarlet satin ribbon and made a flower following the same technique in my very first video (called Silver Ribbon Flowers)  I added my red flower with some white Mosaic leaves, black satin ribbon bow and matching stick pins.  I stamped a sentiment tag and tucked it under my flower.  I finished the card off with a black pearl swirl and my paper piercing and matting and layering.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  8" in size.

  Now for the Weekly Comment Game winners.  This weeks winners are:

Sunday Smiles and HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to you. Have a special day with mom Sue, make memories full of love and happiness. Happy Mothers Day to our America and Canadian friends too.

Black, red and white has that ooh la-la look to it or that 'come get me' Valentine look but today this says WOW, elegant and striking. It may have that CAS undertone to it but that big red flower shouts "look at me" its wonderful.

Woohoo a fellow BRUMMY winner from last weeks comment game, well done to ALL of you and enjoy your generous gift that ONLY Sue would give. This maybe a game but its also a heartfelt THANKYOU from a very kind and giving inspirational craft friend - SUE. Im sure that our new friends that joined the launch fun and have found their name listed here plus if your name was chosen for a gift of a nw release die now realise just how amazing Particraft is as a craft blog, its also full of friends that want to welcome you to Sue's family everyday, this is what Sue deserves for all the hour's of hard work she puts into giving us these stunning cards and video days, so to say "thank you" to Sue for being here for us, join in the fun and inspiration this blog gives us each day.

Morning Sue, Happy Mother's Day to you all. Also thank you so much for picking me as a weekly winner I am delighted you have made my day. Congratulations also to all the other winners I am sure they are as delighted as myself. X
Today's card is another absolutely stunning card. Which I hope to give it a try at making as soon as possible.
I am in the process of moving all my craft stuff of which I have found I have a lot and having trouble storing stuff. But I have made books with magnetic strips in to put all of my dies in so I can access them with ease. My room is almost ready so I will be having a play this afternoon with some if not all of your dies I have recently purchased.
I am proud to be a Suewilsondieaholic lol.

Thanks again for picking me I look forward to receiving my prize.
Have a lovely day

It's one very simple but very very striking and oh so elegant. Your colour palette again is bold but beautiful. Once again a gift in No.1 spot.

Izzy said...

Hello Sue,

Gorgeous card, love the simple colour scheme and the red flower really pops...been meaning to try that technique for ages but not sure if I have ribbon that would take any heat...and I like the idea of cutting the Carina separately and then attaching it underneath it's own top edge...

Oh Sue, you may say simple but I say sumptuous! Took a while to get head round Carina cutting, but got there in the end and saw the clever way of doing the embossing and still getting the Carina shape. Gorgeous embellishment, too!
Yes, quite a week and well done to all the comment winners - we are a lucky bunch.

Hello Sue,
I rely like this card, much more my style than yesterdays.
Have been wondering whether to get the roses embossing folder but this card has decided me, I must have one.

Hope everyone in Oz has recovered from the storms and flooding Muriel. I love autumn being an August girl but we have just got the Cherry blossom out now all pink and frilly.

Having a treat today ladies, hubby is taking me out for lunch so someone else does the cooking and washing up...bliss.

Congratulations to al the latest winners.
Love and hugs to everyone

Hi Sue,
First of all, congratulations to all the weekly winners. I love this card, especially the beautiful ribbon rose. It never ceases to amaze me how detailed all your embossing folders are, Sue. So far I only have one of them and really must put more on my Sue Wilson Wish List :). Stick pins always make the cards look even more classy than they already are, if that's possible. As always, thanks so much for sharing with us. x

Hi SUe

A gorgeous card again. Another pretty feminine one.

I was surprised to win a comment prize again, thank you so much. As it was only a few months ago I have e-mailed you to re-draw my gift so that someone else can have a chance to receive a super stamp set from you. I hope you don't mind me asking that, or think that I don't appreciate your generosity because I really do. It's very unusual for me to win anything, let alone twice in a few months!!!!
Congrats to all the other winners.

Yvonne G said...

Hi Sue
I would hardly call it simple. Having said that sometimes, simple says it best.
Loving your colour combo of black white and red. I think it is such a fabulous look. It would look equally stunning in other colour combos as it is such a lovely style.
Adding to my long list of 'to do' cards.

Wheely Bad said...

Hi Sue

First of all, happy mothers day to you, Mom and all the mothers in the US, Canada, Australia and anywhere else you might be celebrating today. Hugs to you all x

Wow Sue, what an absolutely stunning card! Both the die and the embossing folder are on the list and pretty near the top so they shall be ticked off in the next couple of months I should think! Shall definitely try a version of with what I have though as the layout is just so striking. The colours work so well and I shall be trying them out as well as other combinations. A change of sentiment and this would suit many an occasion- thinking the vintage gold and milk for a wedding? I always think wedding when I see that embossing folder for some reason!

Alison, glad we helped a little, thinking of you and sending hugs x

Congratulations to the comment game winners, enjoy your prizes! x

The sun was out and the wind, though still pretty chilly had dropped so Mr W took me in town for an hour, he needed som camping stove canisters and we stopped for a coffee too. When we got home I settled down for a rest and a cuddle with Billy while he did tea then we just caught up with some tv off the sky box. A quiet day but lovely to get out of the house for a while, Billy happily asleep now and hoping I'll do the same!

Happy crafting and hugs to all of you, I have loads extra if you need them :-)

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue,
My imagination is at it again Sue because this reminds me of a spanish dancer. The hair done in a bun with the flower and the hat pins sticking out from it. The filigree of the sticky swirl is the swirl of the dance, the arms up giving it laldie with their movements. Yip i can see this with the colours and the design giving off a dancer and the grace she holds just like this card. Thank you Sue for the memories being brought back to life through your beautiful card.
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)
