Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

Hello bloggers!   This is one of my favourite cards as it is pretty and bright and just brings a smile to my face! LOL  If you would like to be included n the drawing to win it, just leave a comment and check back on Saturday when the winner is announced.  I started with a piece of coconut white card and cut the complete petal Sweetheart flowers out in a random pattern across the top of the card.  I added a piece of acetate to the back that covered all open flower areas and added mounting foam to the back as well.  Next I cut another piece of coconut white card the same size and used the Colour Cloud inks across it in a diagonal pattern.  I started with Lemon Meringue, then added Baked Peach, Scarlet Woman, Rose Blush and then Turquoise Pool at the other end.  I mounted the flowers over the inked area so that the different colours showed through the flowers.  Next I cut the coordinating outline flowers out of black card and pieced them into place over the acetate.  I cut the Smile die out of Black Gloss card and added it at the bottom of the card with mounting foam.  I completed the card with my usual matting and layering using black gloss card as the thin mat.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Thanks to the wonderful bunch of ladies on fb I am now framing everything that doesn't move with your first two Noble pierced square dies lol. I know I go on about being the thickest of crafters but I took the gold medal this time lol I've only been trying to make Sue style frames and stepped box frames without using the correct method no bloomin wonder I was getting nowhere fast but thanks to these special ladies, they have given me the kick of knowledge I needed to get my act together lol boy are they patient or what ?
Anyway I will send my usual hugs to you Sue and start to look at what I can frame next lol xxx

Tressa said...

Several people have used the term 'clever idea' to describe this design and this was certainly my initial reaction when I read how the card had been made. The nice thing about this is it could be repeated using different colours and each card would have both similarities and marked differences, ideal for a batch making of cards. I don't have these particular dies but the ideas are so, so useful. Thank you.

June Smith said...

Hi Sue and all Wilsonettes, sorry I am late today, been out with hubby this morning and just got back. Well the card is a real winner, everyone should smile and you cannot resist doing so when you see the card, lovely, I like the way you have used the colour cloud behind it, I wonder what it would look like with the new polish paste, stunning.

Update on me is that I did have a much more comfortable night, only woke up 3 times, hopefully the additional medication is beginning to kick in, not sure if it is this or the pain killers I am taking but it certainly helps.

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

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Oooh I LOVE this card !!! The "Smile" die looks fab. The black card makes the letters look glossy and bold. I love the random sweetheart flowers and they look so pretty and colourful with the different colour cloud inks you have used. I think using the acetate over the appertures makes them look smart and elegant to. You have finished the card perfectly by putting the black outline die cuts of the sweetheart flowers over the appertures. It really makes the card !!! This is a lovely, cheerful, colourful card. When I first saw it, the first thing I did was "smile" myself !!! It is an automatic reaction !!! Thank you Sue for posting another card using your "perspectives" dies. It is really fab. I recieved my winning Gemini Die today and it is lovely !!! Thank you so much Sue for all your kind generosity. Sending you lots of love and hugs from Tres x x x

Sending love to everyone from Tres x x x

Hi Sue

I adore this card, so colourful and I always enjoy a flower/background for up! I hope you're OK and after a busy few weeks with TV, Ally Pally and a release you are able to get in some down time. Big hugs from myself and the furry one xxx

June, glad there has been some improvement, I've been thinking of you, big hugs and I hope you continue to improve xxx

Tracy, it can't have been an easy today but I hope you get what you want from it, I can't begin to imagine what the last 6-7 months has been like for you and I'm sure everything you're doing will be of benefit to you. Big hugs

Lynda, Billy did ask me to send you and your crafty pets some big furry cuddles before he went to sleep, and there's big hugs from me too xxx

In and out of migraine and all the other neurological wonders last few days so while things are just tingly I thought I'd come by and say hi. Short and sweet though as it's late and I'd like to try get sleep in bed instead of flaking out where I'm sat because I didn't get there in time! P.A tomorrow and a big list of jobs to get through.

Sending big hugs to all finding life hard for whatever reason, I have plenty extra and a plus sized shoulder ;-) big hugs to my special blog friends too. I've missed you and your stories. Sending a big hug and goodnight wishes to one and all, see you soon as I can,
