Fabulous Day

 Good Sunday morning all!  Today's card is a bit of an ombre sort, as I am quite taken with that trend.  I have seen it absolutely everywhere of late and I think it is especially pretty in cards.  I started the card by cutting the Intertwining Circle Striplet without the outside cutting edge three times in a piece of coconut white card to create the background.  I selected three varying shades of aqua coloured card (from my leftover stash box).  This is a great card to use up some of those smaller bits you have.  I cut three strips and covered each one with a sticky adhesive sheet.  I peeled the backing paper off and placed them behind each of the striplets in order from lightest to darkest.  Next I coated them with Diamond Snow from the front of the background piece so all of the exposed adhesive caught the glitter.  I used the Double Pierced Noble Squares (both sets) to create a layered frame with white and aqua card and placed it over the background.  I used the Grace die to cut a decorative frame and backed it in white and seated it over a stamped sentiment, then attached it in the centre of the card.  I used the same three shades of aqua card to cut some small flowers from the Orange Blossom complete petal set.  I glued them around my sentiment as a small accent.  I completed the card in my usual pierced matting and layering.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4" x  7 3/4" in size.
   Just a quick reminder that I will be doing the drawings for the winning dies tomorrow morning, then posting the winners in a separate post in the afternoon.  There is still time to add any comments to posts you may have missed if you do it before Monday morning!  Don't forget to check back in the afternoon too, to see if your name has been drawn!  All for now, Sue x

Lovely card and one of my favourite striplets at the moment, although I love the new zigzag one more - just don't have that one yet.
I tried yesterday's faux leather effect (with a different embossed die) and as a first attempt I'm very pleased with how it turned out. Thanks for showing it.

Nicola Belshaw said...

I absolutely love this card. It reminds me of fabric being dyed from the bottom up and as the dye rises up the fabric the colour is less intense. Amazing

Nice card, Sue, really like the ombre effect. This is so pretty with the flowers but equally can go macho with stronger colours, as you have also shown.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, sorry a bit late this morning. Such a stunning card today, I so like the way you have used up the scraps by using the intertwining circles die, it looks so effective, I use the pierced squares and rectangles all the time on my cards, they are the most used of all my dies, do you think you will be bringing out ovals, circles and hearts like this at some stage.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Hi Sue - this card is absolutely beautiful and the die is one of my favourites - can be used on any type of card. Love the shades and the use of diamond sprinkles.

fab card Sue. The intertwining circle die is my new "go to" die. I must try this ombre style As you say it is everywhere and is so effective. I like John's version with the distress glitter he did on Hochanda

Beautiful card Sue, love like the colours you used.

I absolutely adore this striplet die, it's been on my wish list since it was launched! I ordered it from Julia on Friday, along with a couple of other die sets and more colour cloud inks.

I'm having fun spending gift vouchers and cash I had for my birthday.

Hope everyone has a lovely creative Sunday

CHERYL Brown said...

Morning Sue,

I really love this card it is so delicate and fresh with your choice of green card peeking out. A very suitable layout for those men in our lives.

Tracy, You have come so far in your journey, I admire your stoical comments and courage. Radiotherapy is a doddle after the chemo. Just look out for the fatigue, it can hit you at any time although usually about a week after your first treatment. So make time for R&R, and don't try to push yourself too hard, if you feel tired take an extra nap. I know I had to.

Daily thoughts and prayers to Melody Francis a & Molly.
Comfort blanket hugs to all in pain & discomfort, may your day treat you kindly.

Love & hugs
Cheryl xxx

Hi Sue, a beautiful CAS card and I think the aqua shades suit it perfectly. I will try and make something similar so will have to root around in my 'bit box' for toning pieces.

Wheely Bad - thank you for the explanation, it seems that Google rules the world!

Feeling sad today with the loss of Sir Terry Wogan. He was part of most of my adult life and his last breakfast show was on the same day that I retired although he was much older than I :) He will be much missed.

Hi Sue,

What a coincidence. I need to make 2 Birthday Cards today and was going to use this die. I was wondering if it would overlap to make a continuous design and it looks as though it doesn't although the way you have made the card makes it easier to but different coloured card behind it without the joins showing.

Love the card and thank you for the inspiration.

The colors are so soothing and fresh looking. I'm ready for the spring-like colors. Your background die cuts are very nice...I believe, once again, this die would work for the guy cards. The tiny flowers add just the right touch...really pretty.

BTW...played with my new embossing folder and all the cardstock weights worked beautifully, but I think my favs were the 100# and 110# cardstocks. I like the sturdiness and the detail of the ef was a tiny bit more pronounced...in my humble opinion.

Happy Sunday Sue,

Good afternoon Sue and the Wilsonettes,
Up until now i haven't been taken on with this die Sue, it hasn't been on my most wanted list but todays card is so beautiful in the varying shades of soft greeny/blue that i could see myself wanting this die. Ilove how it has been made into a sort of picture with the frame around the outside of it. I love how you have brought the varying colours that you have used to make the flowers bring out the background colours that bit more. Yes all in all i love this beautiful card, it is stunning flower and i can see making it up for so many different occasions so thank you for yet another WOW.
Have a good day everyone and hugs to all my Wilsonette friends that could really be doing with one and even if you only just want someone to care, im sending hugs your way.

Thanks Cheryl.
It's good to know these things. It has been hard for me sometimes as I'm not used to resting lol and I've had to learn to take it easy!! Which for me was frustrating.
But it's good to know so many of u have came out the other side of it and I will too xx

scrAPpamondo said...

Fabulous card, too!! :) Love expecially the background and the aqua shades, so delicate and feminine!

CraftyJo said...

Very pretty card Sue, had to smile at what I guess was an auto-correct :D

Hombre: a man, especially one of a particular type.
"the Raiders quarterback is one tough hombre"

ombré: Having tones of colour that shade into each other, graduating from light to dark:

We all know what you mean though ;)

Hello Sue.

Lovely Card. I love your background and the hombre colouring, I can imagine this is going to be a favourite technique using many colours and striplet dies. I love your delicate focal point, very pretty. Thanks for sharing.

Bejay Roles said...

Hi, Sue,
What a delightful card today. I've wanted to try the ombre effect for quite some time, both in my card making and my jewellery making but just haven't been able to manage to get it just as I want it. I have to say that using the different shaded cardstock is a LOT easier than using inks, I don't know why I hadn't thought of something so simple lol. I love the dies you've used, really pretty and a great finished project. Thanks so much for sharing with us.

Good morning/afternoon Sue and your amazing Wisonettes. This card is beautiful and I, too, love the ombré effect. As Bejay said, getting the effect with cardstock is so much easier than using inks. (I would have never thought of doing that. lol)

Wheely Bad...enjoy your tea today and keep the birthday celebration going.
Helen Bell...a belated happy birthday to you.
Tracy...hope your treatment goes well on Tuesday and you feel ok afterward. Sending healing hugs.

At first look I thought you'd created the ombré effect with inks - surprised on reading further that you've used 3 different tones of aqua card! The glittering really makes them 'blend'.

I love the graduated colours and wouldn't have thought to use different shades of card instead of trying to blend the inks together.

Sunday Smiles to you Sue. Back from Birmingham after a few very sad and traumatic days saying our final farewell four weeks after our sudden shocking loss - horrendous time and all so unnecessary thanks to her doctor !!
Congratulations on your new collection each new die is just so beautiful. I was dipping in but wouldn't start commenting properly again until the launch was over as you know my feelings about that. I'm lucky enough to have been given two as a thank you gift from my lovely hubby, not necessary, but gratefully accepted and they are gorgeous. Another A4 sheet of paper full of those does still on my wish list !!
Today's card is so delicate with the various shades of blue, a technique I must try once I feel like crafting again.
sending my usual hugs.

Wonderful card in aqua tones, Sue...
I used the intertwining circle striplet die for making a eastercard in yellow-green but have to read your older blog how to do the layering. I´m not very familiar with that.

This die would make a lovely ocean or beach themed card with these colors. It reminds me of bubbles I suppose.

Gorgeous card. Love the different shades of aqua. I've got a mountain of leftover card to try this technique. The striplet looks good with any colour.
Take care everyone.

Gorgeous card! And what a fun way to use the funky intertwining circles die - I just love that die, can't wait to get my hands on it. Thanks for sharing your creativity! Judy from Prosser

I absolutely LOVE how the diamond snow accents the colors you used for this card. Softens it a bit I think.

Hugs,
