Just For You

 Good Sunday morning all!  I hope you are enjoying your bank holiday weekend!  Today's card is another one of those that I made when I first received the die prototypes!  It is a really simple card, but striking nonetheless I think.  I used a piece of aqua card and cut the Ornate Pierced Rectangle Noble outer decorative die, then I switched and used the inner decorative die from the Classic Adorned Rectangle Noble die.  I left the two dies in place then lightly inked around them with Aqua Adirondack ink for a soft tone on tone look.  I stamped my sentiment on white card and cut it out with the smaller oval from the Classic Adorned set.  I added a slightly darker shade of aqua card as a mat that was cut with the slightly larger inner oval from that same set.  I added mounting foam to the back and layered it over the same shade of darker aqua (from my craft stash).  I used some of the teal hand dyed silk ribbon that I picked up at the trade show last July and topped it with a flower cut from the Delicate Daisies open petal die set.  The card was finished in my usual style of a paper pierced mat, a thin aqua mat layer and a final white mat.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 1/4" in size.

Now for the Comment Game winners for the week.  This week's winners are:

Desiree P!!!
Gwen 70!!!
Snuffy Snoo!!!

For the extra qualifying post of Friday May 22nd, the winners are:

Lynne Mills!!!

Nice card, Sue, with the tone-on-tone and do like the idea of double cutting. Why don't I ever think of these things??! See a little play time coming up to try this out. Just love those open daisies but don't have them.
Well done to all the winners.
Alison - pleased you enjoyed your day - hope you got some crafting goodies? Lovely memories of your aunt now. I have a special aunt, too, last of her generation - 102+.

Elizabeth Beal said...

Hi Sue & Wilsonettes

One can never fail to admire your stunning creations Sue and todays card "Just for you" is certainly no exception. I love the Aqua colour way and as for the Noble dies I can see that these are going to be the dies that I use more than any other (along with the gorgeous striplet dies of course), they have such a striking effect however they are used and they are a classic example of less is more...thank you Sue for sharing with us this mornings Beautiful Ray of Sunshine.

Congratulations to all the comment winners, how mighty generous of Sue to delight so many of us wilsonettes when they see their name have been chosen.

Lynda... thank you for my husbands Birthday wishes x x x...he enjoyed his birthday & he said the card I had made him was probably the best I had ever made...was he was it the S W Noble dies and products that made it the star of all couldn't be anything other than the latter... thoughts are with you, as are many others...but thankfully it seems that your family are all celebrating your birthday but at the same time helping each other through a difficult is good that they are bringing smiles into your heart and into your life...take care and wishing you a lovely day today with your family x x x

Needless to say I am sending huge smiles and hugs to all Wilsonettes, especially to those who are in need of some.

Love Beth B x x x

Clare W said...

GM Sue. Another lovely! Especially that ribbon. Rain forecast here today but at least tomorrow should be dry so they say....

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
NOBLES rule ok - what a lovely card. And the two die sets blend together seamlessly. I love them.
Hugs, Rose

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
The Noble dies certainly know how to make an impression! Love the card and the colour too. Congratulations to the winners especially Lynne ( keep your prize away from the pesky critters or your stamping make look a bit odd with teeth mark impressions!!!
Beth B - I'm so sorry I forgot to wish your hubbie happy birthday for yesterday - sending belated hugs to him- pleased he loved his card and that he had a good day.
P - I did get some money as part of my present from my sister which I might use for some of Sue's dies but my hubbie did get me a lovely colouring book - actually it's s too nice to colour in so I might have to scan the designs and keep the book unspoilt!!
Very miserable day here in Durham after a beautiful one yesterday. It might clear up before lunch I hope! Love and hugs to all especially to those in pain or unwell or feeling down. Love to all, Alison xx

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Sunday Smiles to you Sue and to all comment winners today, well done and enjoy your gift from Sue.

You are spoiling me with my all time favourite pastal shades this weekend.Sue, blush yesterday, aqua today (long live FC) lol
I have never tried this way of cutting, it looks so effective, unfortunatly, I dont have all your Noble dies, just one from the collection, so its time to take you into my 'den' to follow your inspiration... Come this way >>>>>

Cant you just tell its a UK bank holiday ? Summer yesterday with the warmest sun so far and people out in summer wear, to waterproof jackets and umbrella's !! So much for planting out my hanging baskets !! Oh well, at least I wont feel guilty working with you in my den, see, out of a wet day can come happiness : )
Wishing all our poorly and unhappy Wilsonettes love for better days soon. Hope the 'Festive' mojo is with you in abundance today Sue !
Love n hugs.

Morning Sue. This is a really pretty card. The colour's go lovely with the ribbon and the flower look's like a little snow flake it's gorgeous. The noble die's are becoming my go to die's as i love making framed card's and you can mix and match them in so many way's. You are a very talented lady as you can see so much more in your die's than what they were actually made for. Can't wait to see what you have in store for us crafter's with your new festive collection. Congrat's to all the comment winner's. Enjoy your prize and have some lovely play time with them.
Take care everyone. The weather doesn't look promising after such a beautiful day yesterday.
Best Wishes.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

Morning Sue
A beautiful gift in absolutely gorgeous colours. Who doesn't want to start their day with a wonder such as this. As Steph always says 'it's a WOW' and this is certainly one.
Sue I fell in love with your noble range as soon as I saw it and I use it constantly. It's a joy to work with and always produces wonderful results.

I had a lovely afternoon at Isobel's party. Far too noisy but then I tend to forget just how noisy, exited and hyper 4yr old get. She had a bouncy castle - this was a surprise for her- with her favourite Disney star from Frozen so most of the noise was at the top of the garden. It was just gorgeous having four generations there as it's not often we all manage to get together. We made some beautiful memories.

Congratulations to all the lucky winners especially Lyn Mills. I can hear the shout from here.

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

Hi Sue. Lovely card and what a great find those ribbons were. Have a lovely day. SueL x

Lynne Mills said...

Hi Sue, gorgeous card and colour. Thought Teal was my favourite colour to use but have to say the aqua from today's card hits all the right spots. Lol lynne m x x x

Omg I'm a winner today, hubby just got an ear full of high pitched whooping and poochies are looking at me as if I've lost the plot ( dippy dogs I never had the plot to begin with).
Alison( extra hugs to you my friend) so true Cully just loves jumping up when the post arrives to ensure it receives her special seal of approval namely teeth marks all over the envelope with a bit of head shaking thrown in for good measure. Made a bit of a boo boo yesterday in that I held a white rose down for the girls to smell because it has a wonderful fragrance, told hubby to go and sniff it when he came home from the airport after picking up our son. Out he goes to the garden and almost instantly comes back in to say there are no white roses fully out yet. Yes there are I say rushing out to point out what's he's missing. Surprise Surprise!!!!!! He's not missing anything for some unknown reason the rose isn't there Just a few petals on the ground. He's now looking at me as if my memory is fading I'm looking at poochies trying to figure out which one is the culprit, I've got no chance finding that out as they are superb actresses. Acting all innocent like butter wouldn't melt in their mouths.
To all the winners congrats.
To all my crafty buddies here have a great day, to all in pain or need extra hugs from devious dastardly doggie divas x x x

Maria Illsley said...

A stunning card Sue I have the aqua card and I must say it's becoming a firm favourite xxx

Lynne Mills said...

Hi Janet, still whooping and running around with my arms in the air. Poochies think it's a new game called " mum is totally crazy" ( they've got that right) lol lynne m x x

Pat S Witney said...

Hello Sue
What a gorgeous vibrant card this morning using the tone on tone aqua shades.

Suzzette Yandle said...

You made a lovely card with the Noble dies using soothing aqua and white colors. I have "inked" the smaller die cut sentiment piece before, but not the larger die cut pieces. The effect is lovely, so I must try this. The shading gives the card more depth without adding another layer of card. Thank you.

Hi Sue. Ooooh this card is absoulutely gorgeous today !! I really love the Aqua colour foundations cardstock. It is such a beautiful shade. I have only one Noble die set at the moment. It is a square set. I just wish pay day would hurry up and arrive !! The Noble Dies are next on my wish list !! This card is simple but very beautiful. It just highlights how brilliantly they mix and match together. I love all your dies Sue. I always find it so difficult on pay day to have to choose which die set I want to get. I just want to get them all !! I love the Open Petal Delicate Daisy you have you used. They make such a beautiful embellishment. I love the ribbon you have used to. Thank you for sharing this gorgeous card today. Sending you lots of love and hugs Sue from Tres x x x

Congratulations to all of the lucky winners of Sue's comment game, especially to Lynne M and her Devious Diva's !! Look after your prize Lynne so that it does not end up with the same fate as the Rose !! Sending lots of love and hugs to you and all the winners today love from Tres x x x

Sending lots of love to everyone today from Tres x x x

Hi Sue and fellow Wisonettes
Don't know if you can use the word serene to describe a card but I'm going to!! Beautifully delicate and serene card. Wonderful colour. Clear blue sky in a card.
So need/want the noble dies. Roll on July as it's my birthday!
Bank holiday tomorrow. An extra day of rest. Or an extra day of crafting - yippee!
Have a good one everyone. Well done to you lucky winners of the comment game.
Crafty hugs
