For You

  Hi there crafters!  A shadowed make for today's blog card.  I cut the Cathedral Background once in coconut white card and a second time in black card, leaving a wide border margin around the edge.  I glued the black die behind the white one and slightly offset it for the shadow.  I glued it to a piece of Blue Dusk card so it showed through the cut out areas.  I cut the centre out of each of them using the smaller oval in the set.  I cut the decorative centre piece out of a piece of white card, placed a sticky adhesive sheet on the back of it and glittered the front with Diamond Snow.  I placed it behind the aperture in the frame and secure it into place.  I used the two ovals to cut a thin frame for it which I mounted up on foam.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the small oval from the Zoe set.  I matted it with blue and a black shadow and glued in the centre of the frame.  I created a seam binding flower by using the redline tape method and cut into the ribbon to create a fringed flower.  I topped it with a Black Dazzler in the centre and seated it on thin satin ribbon and tulle.  I made two matching stick pins as accents.  I pierced a white mat for it, then added a thin blue and black mat and a wider white mat layer to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  9 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, a lovely card today, I don't think I have seen you make the flower using seam binding (or was I asleep at the time), so I will have to check back through your video's to see if it is there. Unless you know exactly which one it was on.

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

Hi Sue. Beautiful card, love the flower and it's great to see your stickpins again.
Alimecca, sorry to hear about Scamp - I hope he makes a speedy recovery.
Lancs Steph - is there another store in this chain apart from the one in the city centre near the market?
Laine- belated condolences on the loss of your Dad, it took me until last night to catch up on all the posts so I didn't know. Sending special thoughts and hugs to all in pain or suffering loss. Sue XXX

Lovely card, Sue, particularly like the dusky blue card. Also the shadowing and flower embellishment. Forgot to say thanks for the video yesterday, always a pleasure to watch.
Alison alimecca - your poor wee Scamp, do hope she's feeling more comfortable soon. Think we feel it as much as they do!

karenlotty said...

Lovely card The shadow is very effective I, too have forgotten seeing you make a seam binding flower I assume it's like the "old fashioned" way of making the rolled felt flowers Oh those were the days lol!

Tressa said...

Lovely card. Like the shadowing of the background. I, too, seem to have missed this method of making the flower, either that or my memory is playing up. Whichever, I must have a go as it is very pretty.

Morning Sue. WOW This is a beautiful card and the colours are lovely. I bought your DVD many moons ago. I got it out the other day to watch and isn't it fun what you forget after crafting for years. The red liner tape flower is on it and i sat and made a few of them. I was so pleased with them. It was great having my little grey cells working again lol. Have a lovely weekend Sue.

Thank you to Denise T for reminding us that your flower using the red liner tape is on your video. I will dig my video out today, although I do remember seeing you demonstrate this not too long ago.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and the Wilsonettes,
This is a lovely card in these colours for a man in our lives that minus the flower and ribbons but there are some, rare i know, but there are some men that would love this card just as it is. What a great unisex card Sue with just the minor of alterations that the other species on our planet would love equally as much. The way that you have staggered the black just to highlight or pop the design is my amount of black i think, lol. It would make a beautiful wedding card as well for art deco weddings and with the lucky blue in it would give the good luck as well as the wedding card. Thank you Sue for another WOW that we can play with and see what we can make differently with the dies. I hope that you are bit better but sending you some hugs anyway just to keep your chin up and know that you are thought about flower.
Well what a day yesterday turned out to be and i can only hope that i don't need to paddle amongst the wet and slush like yesterday that hardly got above freezing. My hills are so dark in their colours today with a tiny touch of snow shaken over the top of them. Anyway i will leave by sending hugs to Claire, Wheelybad and my other Wilsonettes friends that are going through a rough time at the moment and to any others that could just do with that hug.
Love and crafty hugs

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
I really love today's card. I particularly like the flower and when I first looked at it I thought you had used the cornflower dies! I know I'm crazy - but I thought you had made a tulle flower using lots of layers and the cornflower die! Wrong again!!!
Thank you for reminding me of yet another flower .
Still thinking of you Sue and others going through similar difficult times!
Keep going Tracy! You are an inspiration!
Thinking too of those who have been missing for a while now! Molly , I hope you are still crafting!

Hi Sue, a charming card and I love the effect of the shadowing. The seam binding flower is really pretty, a good one to remember.

Alison - oh poor Scamp! We always think they will land on their feet but sometimes the distance just isn't enough for them to right themselves. I bet you both had a nasty shock. Good luck with keeping her contained though, not an easy job at the best of times. I hope she is feeling more comfortable today, please let us know how she is getting on.

Beautiful card Sue. Love the cathedral die too X

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Afternoon dear friend. Isn't it amazing just what a little black shadow can do to 'lift' what would otherwise be a plain card, plain, but still beautiful. I don't think I've seen you actually make that style flower before. I've seen you use red liner tape on sheer ribbon but it's looked totally different, this almost resembles your cornflower die without all the separate cuts if that makes sense !
I've actually been in my craft room for the first time since my similar nightmare at Christmas and in the middle of doing an adaptation of yesterday's card. I've used the same triplet one either side but just cut the small middle diamond die in the middle as my card wasn't cut big enough to accommodate the three cuts, but using the Montreal for the centre still looks nice. Just need to add a few flowers then it's complete. Used one of Phills papers beneath the triplet and it all tones in lovely, so thank you Sue for your inspiration.
I shall send my love and caring thoughts to you this Friday. Still on my mind, especially when that wave appears xxx

Hi Sue. Oh WOW !!! Todays card is absolutely gorgeous !!! I love your new Cathedral background die and it is high up on my wish list along with the New Zeland Collection which I can't wait to start collecting !!!

It really "pops" !!! I can see lots of versatility with this die set with the different dies that are included. I love the design of the middle die to. I think it is really lovely. Great sentiment, flower and the stick pins are back !!! Wonderful Sue. Thanks for another beautiful card Sue.

Hi Sue,
Another beautiful card, love the flower and stick pins. The cathedral background is one of my favourites. Hope you're ok. Xx
Thank you to all the comments about Scamp. She has been more settled today and is eating and drinking well so that's good. However, she is a little incontinent as poor thing can't balance in her tray. The washing machine has been working overtime and I've had to buy some more mattresses for her , but she's worth it. She looks a lot happier today and has come to have her head rubbed and we got some purrs out of her. I know there will be a lot of you out there who think this is really stupid over a cat, but she is a massive part of my family. Thank you for your concern.

Hi sue
I'm late tonight. Lovely card as always an I just love the wee flower. Xx

Alimecca. Allison. Ur poor wee cat. An no it's not stupid to do this for a cat. I have no children yet and when I had my cat (cass) he was my baby and I did everything I could for him towards the end and he was nearly 16. I would've spent every last penny I had if I could've kept him going longer. But they can be just as much part of any family. Sadly he'd had good innings and it was his time but I still can't bring myself to bring a new one into my home and it's been several years.
So yes I understand exactly why ur doing what ur doing and he will thank u for it I hope he gets better soon xx
