Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

 Hi bloggers!  You probably figured that this card would be the next up for grabs!  Fresh from it's demo appearance on my shows last week, it is looking for a really good home.  Just leave a comment on this post to be entered in the drawing for it.  I will announce the winner of Saturday's blog post.  I cut two of the Regal Striplet using just the inside decorative die to create a background.  I used spray glue to adhere them to another piece of coconut white card, then used Polar White Sparkle Texture paste to grout it and let it dry for several hours.  Next I cut the frame using the Classic Adorned Rectangle set and the new Blue Dusk card (very similar to Periwinkle but a bit lighter).  I raised it with mounting foam and placed it over my grouted background once it was dry, trimming away the excess from below the frame.  Next I used the scalloped edge die that is part of the Lavish Swirls diagonal die set to add a fine border all the way around the edge of a coconut white backing card.  I seated the frame on it and added some pearls in the corners.  I cut the Thank you die in both white and black and offset the black die ever so slightly to look like a shadow.  I backed it with the oval cut out of Blue Dusk card and glued it in the centre of the frame.  Next I made a single Cornflower by cutting 2 each of several sizes and gluing them together and then adding a black 8mm Dazzler to the centre.  I seated it on a blue satin bow, some white tulle and two of the Splendid Swirls as embellishments.  Finally I made two matching stick pins and added them to my bow.  I did my usual piercing around the edge before adding a thin blue and black mat and finishing with a white mat layer.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue
What a wonderful blue that new card is - definitely on my wish list. I don't think it matters how much card/paper we have we always need more.

I love today's gift. Of course it's a winner how can it not be you have used your Noble Dies again. They are just wonderful to use and give fantastic results eg today's gift. I haven't grouted as yet so must get round to trying that technique.
As usual my SW space is dusted off in great anticipation.

We have had rain all night and it's very grey this morning so the fields must be feeling a lot better!!

It's a cooking day today so I'm off to start.

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

I fell in love with this card when I saw it on C&C

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
What a lovely card to wake up to this morning. The colour combination is one of my favourites and the cornflower is gorgeous. Cornflowers are actually one of my favourite flowers and the die was a must have when you introduced it. It does make a beautiful flower. I remember seeing this on the shows last week and really liked it so pleased to see it today.
At last we have a bit of sunshine - let's hope it lasts( although not sure the forecast is that good!)
Have as good a day as possible everyone. Love to you all, Alison xxx

Sandie Braithwaite said...

What a lovely card, Sue. Still have the show recorded. And..... can't believe I posted before my sister today! She won't believe it. LOL.

Rosemary Swainson said...

Beautiful card, looks stunning. I am a recent fan of your dies. I have 6 sets in total and very impressed, I will in the future be adding to my collection. Using the snowflake striplet die atm and just amazed at my results. All down to your wonderful product, thank you x

CHERYL Brown said...

Good morning Sue,

Well, today's card would be very welcome to come and share my home with me. She's so beautiful, loving everything about her from the colour combo to the gorgeous cornflowers.

Back home now after a fantastic 4 day weekend Family Reunion in Bristol. I cannot fault the Hotel or the staff, everything that I had asked from the planning stages to the actual weekend was over and above what I imagined. Family flew in from the USA and Germany to wet rainy weather, but we didn't let that dampen our fun.

Off to the Café now, whatever you are doing remember to leave some time 'me-time' for yourselves.

Love & hugs
Cheryl xxx

Hello Sue

What a pretty card. The grouting technique is new to me so I must look into that further as I like the effect.

Love

TOB said...

gorgeous card Sue. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong, I bought the cornflower die as soon as it came out, but mine look like I've ripped the paper and nothing like Sues card today. I love making flowers but am baffled why mine look so awful. Do I need to cut into the cut leaves to make them thinner, as mine are really thick and don't look very nice at all.
Hope someone can give me some ideas.
Hugs to all
Theresa xxx

Yvonne G said...

Morning Sue
Loved it when I saw you demo this card and love it even more now. I will be able to recreate this exquisite offering once my delivery arrives from C & C. Love a blue white combo and this new blue dusk shade is beautiful
I am more than happy to give this card a good home. I will talk to it every day and stroke it lovingly on a regular basis. After all, a Sue card is for life.

My spa afternoon was really lovely. I have perfectly painted finger and toe nails. Red - classy or possibly tarty - trying to decide. Lol. The jacuzzi was wonderful until 2 tall, young, leggy, bronzed, blonde, non cellulited beauties decided to join us in there. Was feeling quite glamorous up until that point then my straying mind jumped very quickly back into my 47 year old head. We didn't stay in the jacuzzi long after that. Apart from that little episode of feeling old, short and remembering my youth fondly we had a fantastic time.

Theresa - I didn't have bubbly. Decided to have apple juice - I'm a good girl x

Diane - very relaxing thanks. Even uncrossed things for a while x

Lorraine - now now. I'm a little disappointed that you can even imply that you are possibly more superior than the current chair of BCAS. I had been thinking of allowing you to be part of the commitee,but I feel that it might be best if you become a lowly member and then you will have to work your way up the ranks on merit. You may have cheekbones that can cut paper but I have a tongue that can wound severely so prove your worth and I will consider your promotion. On a brighter note did your parcel arrive? Mine didn't but fingers crossed it will today. Hope your hospital visit was ok x

Fluffy cat - apple juice - clear head - BCAS is still in safe hands x

Saba - couldn't possibly offer you a senior position in front of the other applicants - I will give you some thought x

Magpie - you disappoint me - thought you had more fight in you. What about a position in an advisory capacity? x

Deb C - Military training? Well I think I've just found me a bodyguard. A very necesssary requirement I think considering the kind of activities the BCAS will be participating in x

Wheely Bad - not tempted to apply? Happy Birthday to hubby x

I think that there has been enough talk of BCAS. After all we could start giving away secrets to anyone who is thinking of beginning their own rival society. Time to start planning to put your money where your mouth is. Any of you aspiring members hoping to attend Ally Pally? I think it would be lovely if we could possibly make arrangements to have a meeting if anyone is game. Let me know x

Getting impatient for my new toys now. Hope my courier makes an appearance today.
Have a Wowzer Wednesday everyone
Crafty hugs

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue what a stunnin piece of work. Im now addicted to the sparkle texture paste, and it helps make a really beautiful, subtle background to any card.
May do what you suggested, just need the confidence, so the sentiment is returned to you.
Have a lovely day.

Pauline A said...

Morning Sue, Look no further for a good home as we have one here and it would be well looked after. Seriously though, I loved this card when I watched you demo it. Thank you for explaining to us how to prepare ones' card before using texture paste (C&C) so now I will have another go and hope that this time it doesn't seep underneath my mask/die. Lovely card today Sue. Hugs xx Pauline A

Morning Sue. Super card today. Love the colours together. The thank you die us so lively and effective with the shadow. Thank you for sharing and giving so much inspiration. Hugs Heather.x

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

Loved this card when I saw it on C&C - very classy and elegant but I also love how the shaggy cornflower adds that little touch of informality...and texture pastes are great fun to work with and much easier/less messy than I thought when I first bought mine and also surpisingly thrifty as like loose glitter most of it is scraped off and goes back in the pot so a definite must-have in anyone's crafty arsenal...

I loved the demo when you did this card, I still haven't done paper grouting but it's on my list of things to try. I love the cornflower die its amongst my favourites (have to say I have a very long list of favourites lol!).

Good Morning Sue and Wilsonettes
What a lovely card today, did I see this one on your C&C show? The background is stunning, I wonder if I could recreate this with the square Noble die, when my parcel finally arrives, still waiting and the other dies I would need are in there too. I love the colours. the new card is gorgeous and just that touch of black lifts the whole card.
On a flyer today, visiting mum this morning (she's in a nursing home) and then chiropractor this afternoon. Will look in on you all and read comments later.
Have a wonderful Wilsonette day, Sue enjoy your time with your mum and put your feet up.

When my cousin and I had a spa day they said we could come to lunch in our robes they provided - we looked at eachother and laughed because they were about a size 10 and we are more like economy size, more for your money! I'm sure red nail varnish is highly sophisticated too! Xxx

This card is another amazing Sue Wilson creation! I missed this demo on C&C at the time of your originally scheduled time, but pulled it up later to view it. So glad I was able to access this demo in the UK. I did not realize one could grout a die cut! Ummmm, more card making possibilities.

Love this card. I actually have the blue card but am always reluctant to use coloured card as it sometimes looks too much, I am more a white cream beige sort of crafter. However I have all the dies, card stock to make this card so I think I will give it a go. Looking forward to your next shows when you return.

Another wonderful card! Love that blue color. I wish I had been able to see the show. I always love seeing you in action.

KVencel said...

Beautiful card! The layering on this card, along with the "hints" of black, are so elegant.

HI SUE
LOVE THE SHADOW SENTIMENT. REAL NEAT TRICK. LOVE THE FOLD OVER FLOWERS DIE. I HAVE LEARNT TO DO THE FOLD OVER FLOWERS WITH TWO SHADES OF SAME COLOUR AND ROLL TOGETHER. IT LOOKS REALLY GOOD. ALSO CAN CUT THE FOLD OVER TOP WHICH MAKES THEM MORE WISPY AND FULLER.
SMASHING CARD GREAT FINISHING TOUCHES. PERFECT.

Absolutely love the shadowed sentiment, and the scalloped edge! The black is very striking and it draws your eye to the center of the card, awesome!! Beautiful card Sue!

Barbara said...

Beautiful card as usual, lovely colours.

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Loved this card when I saw it demo'd and love it just as much now, but that's because it uses my favourite noble dies.

Bejay Roles said...

Ooh, what a pretty card, Sue. I love the shadow behind the 'Thank You' and of course, it has my favourite things...PINS!!! As always, thanks so much for sharing with us. x

Brooke Bont said...

Such a wonderful card and love the color and the flower.

Good evening Sue and Wilsonette babes!

A little late for me today, where has the day gone? I loved your demonstration last week, the colour-yes, I managed to get the card- the composition- I also managed to get the Noble Rectangle-and the grouting technique is ingenious. Can I just point out that I LOVED IT SO MUCH that I e mailed C&C only to be pipped at the post by another candidate! I am a worthy recipient Sue, I am childless and able to devote the time , care and attention this little gem will need to flourish in its new environment. It will be loved and cherished in a way that an only child would be, so please consider me for adoption, you would make my dreams come true!
Yippee! My parcel was delivered at lunchtime and since I had an afternoon to myself I could play to my hearts content all afternoon, with Brodies help of course, he could see that I was struggling with the triple bow and felt he had to step in and intervene- after a minor cufuffle I retrieved the now frayed ribbon to complete my task in another room!
Yvonne, don't be disheartened by the blonde babes, I find that discreet industrial strength taping in those looser places can achieve a comparablely taught, firm silhouette ! Everything went south when I hit 30 and I find that short of full body reconstruction a bit of deception can go a long way....just don't take your clothes off unless the room is in complete darkness!
Please reconsider my executive post to the BCAS team, I am sure that our joint experience in the field of duty would prove mutually beneficial.
Which brings me neatly on to Deb C, I feel that your military expertise would be invaluable during reconosance duties and your skills would be highly beneficial during interrogation and retrieval of suitable memorabilia!
Wheels Bad, hope your hubby enjoys his day, I find a bottle of Prosecco fits the bill nicely when I want to forget my advancing dotage:-)
Hope everyone patiently awaiting a delivery have been as lucky as I have today, have a lovely evening my lovelies

Crafty hugs and kisses,

Laine1972xxxxxxx

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, another gorgeous card and I love everything about it, from the colours through to the fantastic cornflower. It would be nice to have the opportunity to see the texture paste up close and personal before buying it :D

Saba said...

Hi Sue,
I love everything about this card, the colour, design and layout are altogether perfect. And the base mat with those tiny weeny thin borders, just amazing, so perfect and even.

Good luck to everyone in the draw, but I do hope it's ME.
Love and hugs

Hi Sue, Lovely card, I am gutted as your programs didn't record, I was looking forward to watching them on my return from Leicestershire. x

DeCor said...

Love this card today. The way you used the striplet and grouted it was beautiful. The cornflower die looks so good all layered up. Just a beautiful card again.
Loved your programs on C&C. Thank you again

craftynanna jo said...

A superbly fantastic card Sue, it really is lovely and my parcel came today, the lovely new card and my new dies, the colours in the card is wonderful.
I have been to my local craft shop today, now they only had one thing on my list that i wanted which was very unusual, so I came away with three dozen 6 by 6 envelopes for the Christening card invites i had made, I am dying to have a play with my new dies tomorrow but it will be shopping first, play later. hugs to all Johanna

Chaffinch said...

Got my noble die bundle from your last appearance on C&C today. So perfect timing with this inspirational card.

Janet hampson said...

Hi Sue,
Gorgeous card, thought so when you demoed it on C&C. Love the fabulous background done with the striplet, really pretty.

Janice Robinson said...

Hi Sue
Another stunning card with beautiful colours.

Lynn Dalby said...

Hello Sue.

This is a beautiful card. I love the dies you have used and the Blue Dusk card. I think using a black die cut as a shadow is inspired, it looks great. I am also tempted by the Cornflower dies every time I see them. Thanks for sharing.

Best wishes.

Theresa Pace said...

i missed this demo. lovely card. that dusky blue has a beautiful hue to it. the shadow in thank you works a treat. i would give it a good home and cherish it. i'll get you some references if it helps, lol! hugs xx

Annamieke said...

I agree with Theresa about the shadow. It is total awesome.
The colours are just great.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Oh WOW !! This card is sooo lovely !! You have used such fab dies to make your card today. I did not realise at first, that you had used the Regal Striplet Die to make the background. I really think it looks fab, especially used with the sparkle texture paste and your grouting technique. I love all of your Noble Dies. I am hoping to collect more of them bit by bit. I just cannot choose my favourite ones so have decided to collect them all !! I love your thank you word dies used with the shadow effect behind it. The colours you have used look great together and I really love your beautiful Cornflower Dies. They make such beautiful flowers !! THANK YOU to you Sue for everything you do for crafter's. You are always such a wonderful inspiration to me and I am sure to others to. Sending you and your family lots of love today Sue from Tres x x x

Sending everyone lots of love today from Tres x x x

Another gorgeous card, I love all of the noble dies and I really like the new colours of card too.
I need to try the grouting but wonder how you keep it off the die cut piece without wiping it out
of the cut out bits.
Your cards are always welcome in my house lol

Janice Brummett said...

Lovely card again today. I used the noble dies for a 50th anniversary card using cream and gold. It turned out beautiful. I have a perfect place for this card, if I only would be the lucky lady!

Jean said...

Such a divine color!

Sally-Ann Huson said...

I love this colour blue. The noble dies do make a nice statement on a card. This card being no exception. Great tip about shadowing the sentiment - I will try this out on those dies that I have of yours with expressions. Thanks Sue. As always great reading your blog.

Sandy H said...

Stunning card. Love your sentiment dies.
Take care everyone.
