Wednesday Weekly Card GIveaway

 Hi crafters!  A black and white beauty for today's giveaway card.  This card was also one of the demos from my last shows (way back when!).  I started by cutting the frame out of the Classic Adorned Squares.  Once cut, I coated the frame with Cosmic Lacquer and spread it all over the frame using my fingers.  I set it aside to dry, them began working on the acetate piece in the centre.  I selected the Lattice mask and taped it to my acetate with removable tape on all four sides.  Using Polar White Sparkle Texture Paste, I pulled it through the mask with a plastic palette knife, removing any excess and returning it to the container.  I carefully removed the mask and set it aside to dry (it takes longer to dry on acetate than it does on card)  Once dry, I attached my frame over the top using mounting foam and trimmed away any excess from below the frame.  I mounted my frame on another piece of white card and matted it with a thin black mat.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the Pierced Flags die set, using a slightly larger die cut in black as a mat.  I mounted it across my frame.  Using both the open and complete petal Camellia die sets, I created three black and white flowers and attached them at the end of the sentiment strip.  I seated them on a thin satin ribbon bow.  I cut a couple of the Splendid Swirls and added them around my flowers.  The card was then finished with a white pierced mat layer, a thin black mat and a final white mat.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  7" in size.  If you would like to be included in the drawing for this one, just leave me a comment. The winner will be announced on Saturday's blog post.   All for now, Sue x

A wow of a mono card today, Sue, new techniques again but doubt I'll try the acetate masking with paste - see a disaster looming! Totally gorgeous embellishment, so pleased to have the splendid swirls, just lovely.

Morning Sue. WOW Another stunning card. I think the black / white or cream card's alway's look very elegant and classy. The little camellia flower's alway's look fantastic they make gorgeous spray's of flower's with any of your foliage die's. Never tried the texture paste on acetate so another must try for me today.
Take care everyone and hoping the wind's have gone today. It's seem's quiet outside at the moment lol
Best Wishes.

Yvonne G said...

Morning Sue
I remember watching you demo this card and loved everything about it. So glad to have your fantastic breakdown so I can pinch your idea properly instead of trying to make it by memory.
I would never have dreamed of using the cosmic lacquer to glaze the frame the way you have and had completely forgotten about it until now. Another technique to add to my 'Sue to do' technique list. Have to say it's a very long list.
Not up to crafting at the moment so a lot of catching up to do when feeling better.
Fingers crossed for winning the draw cos I really really really want this card!
Crafty hugs

Elizabeth Beal said...

Hi Sue and Wilsonettes...hope today finds you all keeping well.

Sue, what an absolutely delicious card. I love everything about it...love the idea of coating the frame with lacquer, as for the mask on Acetate it really gives it a feeling of dimension...what a brilliant idea & definitely something I will have to try. I'm so glad that I managed to obtain your pierced flag set because this really does lift the card in an elegant way. As for the flowers they are really, really stunning and along with the swirls they give a beautiful finished look to the card...thank you deeply Sue for yet again stimulating our card making mojos with fantastic new ideas and of course for sharing your amazing talent with us.

Wheely Bad...I sincerely wish you all the best at the hospital today...hope it helps knowing that so many of us are with you in thought during this time, sending you hugs and smiles x x x

YvonneG...sorry to hear you weren't well yesterday and like me you managed to overcome the Mcaffee risk warning and got to leave a comment, sending you hugs and smiles and hope you are feeling better today. x x x

This question coming from a fairly newbie to this Blog & being a shy person with new people and it will probably sound a bit daft but I noticed that some of you say that you have made some wonderful & best friends through this site...please may I be silly enough to ask how we can do this, how it is possible to get to know other people if the feeling is mutual etc...thank you & apologies for being presumptuous and as I said...daft.

Anyways I wish you all a lovely day, please take care and sending hugs and smiles to you Sue and to your family of Wilsonettes. Love Beth B x x x

Sandra Biggs said...

Hi Sue
Beautiful card. Love the background.

Clare W said...

GM Sue. Lovely,lovely,lovely! Love the glossy frame. Must try that.

CraftySuetoo said...

Hi Sue. Monochrome has such an impact on the eye but you take it further with the acetate and texture paste (my new favourite thing - never happier than when I'm getting messy); the flower is amazing too.
Happy Birthday to Pam's daughter Kelly.
If you're commenting today PLEASE call in to comment tomorrow - it's a very special day! Sue xxx

Monochrome - YES love love love it. This is always a winner in my book and when you do this colour palette Sue your art is always wonderful. As yet I haven't had the courage to put my fingers into Paste. I keep putting it off but I really must come out of my box and sample this product. I'm still in love with your Noble dies so all in all everything on today's gift is beautiful.

Pam - Happy Birthday to Kelly - Hope you all have a good day. How's Robbie doing these days please?
Wheely Bad - good luck today.

Hi Sue - another stunning card today. I do love black and white cards and the texture paste on acetate looks amazing, but I've yet to try this technique, mainly because I know I will end up with it everywhere except in the right places!

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Hiya Sue,

What a truly fabulous creation for this weeks giveaway. Monochrome is a favourite of mine, it is so elegant and sophisticated, just like a little black dress, and suits all genres and sexes.
I am fortunate enough to have all of the featured dies but I have yet to try texture paste since it is an accident waiting to happen really!
I am definitely going to be brave though because the effect is truly stunning-where does all of your limitless inspiration come from I wonder , I am in total awe of your talents because each day you manage to bring us something fresh and unique. Thanks for providing us all with the tools to recreate your vision in our own homes, it is much appreciated.
Take care to Sue and all her faithful legion of Wilsonettes.

Crafty love and hugs,

Hi Sue & All The Wilsonettes! I hope you are all well & enjoying good weather, wherever you are? It is a beautiful day here, in Rosemarket (NEAR MILFORD HAVEN)! Unfortunately, I have had to attend the funeral of a family friend, who was 100! Sadly, she died two days after her 100th Birthday! Well Sue, you have made a wonderful card again! I love the monochrome look, as it makes cards look so elegant! I would love to be the recipient of a card like that! Unfortunately, I will have to leave all you lovely ladies (& gents!), as I have to make a sympathy card for my friend, whose Dad passed away, last week! Take care! Love, Mary Blight XXX

Not usually a fan of acetate but I love this card, the sparkle paste design seems to float in mid air and the black and white flowers are absolutely stunning.

A lovely and sophisticated design today. Thank you. The texture paste on the acetate is a great look and technique. I will have to get some texture paste and try this on a card.

What a very striking card Sue. Love it. I have the dies and the paste but haven't tried it on card yet let alone acetate. Must give it a go. It looks gorgeous.

Hi Sue
Love the monochrome look today with the bling from the texture paste. I've got some but not had a chance to play yet as we are up to our eyes in exam revision in this house! I'm becoming an expert in chemical equations!
Thank you for sharing.
Love Diane G xxx
Mary sorry to hear you have had two recent deaths, at least the lady made 100, that must have been her goal xxx

Gail Chase said...

Lovely contrast on this card today Sue. I haven't used acetate or the texture paste yet, this card makes me want to start trying this right away. Thanks, Gail

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Well I think today's card is absolutely stunning !!! This black and white monochrome look is fantastic Sue. I really love your Classic Adorned Noble Dies and pay day is almost here !! You are really teasing me today with this card Sue !! Another great card using the Noble Dies. I can't wait to get my hands on these dies. I have the Camelia Flowers so this card will definitely be high on my "to make" list !! I love the idea of glazing the frame, and putting the sparkle texture paste on to acetate is another wonderful idea. Such a lovely result. I think your flowers with the Swirl dies and ribbon are very dramatic and really beautiful !! I just love everything about your card today Sue. Thank you so much for all your hard work and fantastic inspiration. Sending you lots of love Sue from Tres x x x

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