Best Wishes

 Good Sunday morning all!  This one almost comes under the heading of clean and simple ( and almost flat too!).  I started with a piece of soft grey card and used the Lattice mask on it.  I taped it into place and used Silver Moon Sparkle Texture paste through it for a tone on tone look.  I allowed it to dry several hours before continuing.  Next I cut the Caribbean border die out of coconut white card and backed it with the soft grey card.  I glued it into place so that it was between my embossed background and a plain area of grey card on top.  I cut three of the Best Wishes die in coconut white card and used spray glue to adhere them all together to raise it slightly.  I glued it into place above my border and to the right side of the card.  I tied a double bow out of white satin ribbon, added a silver twine bow and topped it with a white crystal sparkler (can't have any naked knots, you know! LOL)  I added my paper pierced white border mat using my piercing ruler, then a thin grey mat layer and finally a wider white mat to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7" x 9" in size.

Now for the winners of this week's comment game.  The winners are:
Marlene Kiley!!!
Janet Goodwin!!!

For the extra qualifying post of Monday June 1st, the winners are:

Really like grey card, Sue, and with the silver texture paste it looks stunning. Your sentiment dies are perfect and this one is all that the card needs. Altogether very nice indeed!
Well done to the whole heap of winners - what a lot this week.

anne mather said...

Hi Sue,

This card is so up my street. This is definately my colour choice and I am working on something in the same colours at the moment.
I will look for the mask and the paste to try - although I don't have a lot of success with messy stuff but will give it another try.
I use the Best Wishes die a lot and I love it.
Have a good time everyone and be careful out there.

Elizabeth Beal said...

Hi Sue and Wilsonettes...I have a small stash of grey card which I have never used because I couldn't imagine how I would make a card with thank you for sharing this gorgeous card with us today Sue...the texture paste on this grey colour makes such a lovely difference adding interest...I too will be giving this texture paste a go...sounds like a messy bit of fun and that's what crafting is all about...having fun and letting your ideas flow into your design.

Congratulations to the many, many comment winners today...Sue has been wonderfully generous and I know that you will really love and treasure your prize gift x x x

Maria Alder...I grew up in Devon then in Millbrook, Cornwall...but I moved further up to be with my first husband who later died of stomach cancer and after many years I met my now husband Steve, of almost 7 years...but because of his job and his elderly frail dad wouldn't move down to me so yet again I gave everything up to be with him (Steve I mean not his because I'm a country girl at heart then Steve promised that if his dad is not with us in our retirement years then we are moving back down to Cornwall(can't wait to retire not the rush to get to answer your question Maria I live in Northampton...sigh... x x x

Cheryl...Lynda etc...Thank you so much x x x I will check back on Google+ again later(husband on shift work this weekend)but I didn't see anything from yourself Lynda...sorry...

Mary Lynn sincerely hope that you shared a lovely day with your husband...40th. Anniversary...congratulations and a beautiful achievement in these too modern times x x x

Well folks I will let you get back to your hopefully...non swinging...hanging baskets...if not there is always the top notch card crafting to tuck into...I spoke too soon as we had gale winds aswel yesterday.

Take care to one and all, hugs and smiles to you all and especially to Sue and family...Love Beth B x x x

Hi Sue. A very classy card, love the idea of cutting several sentiments to raise them up without having the depth of foam - I can see this being used a lot to save on postage costs in the festive season!!! Sue xxx

Lesley Griffiths said...

Simple in style but so elegant.
Happy days,

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Sunday smiles to you Sue. Clean and simple, and pure beauty and elegance is how I describe this card today.
Each time you show us a sample using your new texture paste and mask's for a background it makes me wonder if I could do both these product's justice. I just love the way you make it look so different, both yourself and Tina E (Creative Expressions DT member) use it so beautifully it really makes me want to buy and try, Tina is also addicted to this new sparkle paste and I think you maybe to blame Sue lol, she cant put it down and loves it too. So, if my lovely little craft shop has this in stock next week Im going to buy and try, as I find my card backgrounds are in need of some umph, so umph I will try ! Ohhhh dear, what am I getting myself into lol I feel I may need lots's of baby wipes at hand and a lot of patience in the stubby little finger's department !
So for now, I will send many congrats to the long list of comment winner's and wish you lots of extra fun with your gift.
Another day that makes you feel so much better even if you feel pant's lol its amazing how a little bit of sun takes the blue's away, although Im not one for moaning or going on about my health, Im so glad to say goodby to last week and start a new !
So Sunday hugs to you Sue hope you have a lovely day whatever your plans.

The silver looks so effective on the soft grey I will try this layout (if that's ok) using one of your 3D bow strips or a Gemini or a Striplet.....!

Clare W said...

GM Sue. Lovely! Must try that texture paste. Congrats to winners and happy sunny Sunday all!

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
Who would have thought that a grey card would look so gorgeous. I have some grey card and always put it with pink but I love it with white and the added paste it's beautiful. ( something to go on my 'To do' list. I love your Best Wishes die, I would love a Happy Birthday in the same font ( hint hint lol), although I have to say I love the one I have of yours but you can't have too many sentiments I say lol. I must also try layering a few together it looks great done that way. I'll be a 1000 years old before I complete my 'To do' and 'I need' lists lol.
Congratulations to all the winners enjoy your prize.

Morning Sue. This card is right up my street. It's clean, simple,elegance is gorgeous. The texture paste on the background give's it a different look and feel to your creation. The grey card and paste go so well together along with the expression die's. Another one for me to try and put in my stash box lol. Congrat's to all the lucky winner's this week (there is so many of them ). You are such a generous lady Sue, Hope you all have great fun with your prize and many happy hour's of crafting.
Take care everyone. Well the sun is shining this morning but we still have gale force wind's. I just hope it's not going to be like this for the hole of june like the weather man was saying yesterday, but then they usually get it wrong lol
Best Wishes.

CHERYL Brown said...

Good morning to everyone from a gloriously sunny Somerset.

It makes me want to forego the crafting and get some gentle gardening done that I missed yesterday with the biting cold winds, although I do have to be careful of not getting sunburnt. A side effect of the breast cancer last year renders me unable to sunbathe for the next 3-5 years so it's high necked tops with long sleeves for me. And a straw/sun hat.

As always Sue, just when I think I can't get too many techniques under my belt, along you come with another. Well, there's not much I can say about this card that somebody already hasn't done so.
It is simply divine, no clutter just plain & simple with a touch of sparkle. I am seeing this technique as a base for my Christmas cards. Thank you Sue for your marvellous inspiration.

Beth, looking forward to hearing from you on Google+, just add me in a circle and we are off and running.
To all those in pain and discomfort, I hope you improve today.
Love & hugs
Cheryl xxx

Ecco of Sheffield said...

Morning Sue
I love the dies you have used on today's gift and I love the format but I'm still not sure about the Paste. I reminds me of 'flocked wallpaper' of years ago and one of those Victorian decorations I didn't like the feel of. I know it may sound silly but perhaps it will grow on me. As you can guess I haven't bought any of the paste yet so perhaps I might have to invest in a sample and give it a try. Having said all that I also love your colour palette today.

Congratulations to all the lucky winners this week.

We still have sunshine and it's dry this morning but that naughty wind will not go away. To all in pain and suffering I hope your day gets better. To everyone please take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

Hi Sue. Sorry I have not commented for a bit but I have been unwell. I have looked back at your cards and they are all beautiful !! I especially love Fridays card. I think it is really gorgeous. Thank you for sharing them. I love today's card with the grey card stock and the mask using the sparkle texture paste. It is absolutely glorious !! I really must get some sparkle texture paste and give this fab technique a try. I never really thought I needed some grey card stock until now !! It looks lovely with the coconut white card. I have the Best Wishes Die. It is so swirly and pretty. Such a lovely attractive font. As one of the ladies mentioned earlier, I too, would love a Happy Birthday die in the same font as the Best Wishes one. (Please, Please, Please.) I think it would look sooo pretty. I also love the other Happy Birthday Die though !! I love the Caribbean border die and the beautiful bow. A clean and simple but beautiful and elegant card today. Thank you so much for sharing it Sue. Sending you much love from Tres x x x

Congratulations to all the lucky comment game winners today and to yesterday's lucky winner of a Sue Wilson masterpiece !! Well done everyone. I hope everyone enjoys their prize. Lots of love from Tres x x x

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