Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

 Hello there my crafty friends!  This was my first demo of the past weekend, so having an extra card makes it perfect for a giveaway!  Leave me a comment if you would like to be entered into the drawing to win this one.  I started with a piece of vintage gold card and used the Brisbane cutting edge to cut an aperture in the centre of the card.  I embossed the card with the Rose Blooms Pinpoint embossing folder.  Next I cut the decorative portion of the Brisbane die out of coconut white card.  I added a piece of black card behind it, then centred it behind the aperture opening in the embossed gold card.  Next I cut the Rococo Striplet out of coconut white card and I cut the backing out of black card.  I used the decorative part of the die to imprint, rather than heavily emboss, on to a piece of vintage gold card.  I used the impression to hand cut the centre sort of diamond design out.  I glued it behind the cut out white striplet, then added the solid black backing piece behind it.  I used a paper cutter to cut it directly down the centre and I glued each half to the top and bottom of the embossed gold card.  I cut a double strip of pearls down the centre and added them along the edge of each side of the striplet.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the Pierced Flags die and edged it with a gold paint pen.  I created a dimensional flower using the Sweetheart flower, then inked it with a gold paint pen and glittered it with Iced Snow.  I seated it at the end of the sentiment strip on a piece of white tulle and gold cording (from my stash).  I made two matching stick pins to add to the floral element as accents.  I completed the card with white, gold and black mat layers and my usual piercing around the edge.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  7 3/4" in size.  There will be a slight delay in announcing the winner this week as I will be away at Ally Pally for the weekend, but I will announce the winner on Monday's blog post this week.  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue and all
I tried so hard to watch this demo on line on catch up but had to give up about half way through because of constant buffering, so frustrating - so I was thrilled to see it here today, it is so beautiful and now I can still try to do something like it with your detailed instructions. Thank you Sue.
Sooooo lucky the Wilsonette who wins this beauty

Helen Bell said...

Good morning Sue and everyone

Wow, this card is gorgeous. I saw you make it on Hochanda and loved it then too! The embossing is wonderful, but then so is the flower (and extra strong!) and the dies used too. Who would not be over the moon to win this?

Better go and get ready, I have an early appointment at the dentist.

Love Helen xxxx

hettygarlick said...

Chris Curry said...

Wow, what a card, opulent, elegant and striking. I have to say that I think the flower is my favourite part of it, perhaps because of the number of layers and the gold pen finish. Still waiting to get hold of your sweetheart flower dies but have all your others to practise on. Thank you Sue. Xx

Jackie Trinder said...

Good morning Sue today's card is gorgeous I would love to give it a new home. I hope all the prep for Ally Pally is going well. I should be there on Sunday. We are visiting a wedding venue with our daughter and her fiance on Saturday. Have a great day today. Take care. Hugs Jackie

Hi Sue,
Beautiful card!
The gold background looks as though it's leather! And the rose is stunning.
Demo was excellent and I'm looking forward to Ally Pally, I'm coming down from Edinburgh to see my wonderful daughter (well that's what I told her, LOL) it's my birthday today and she's treating me at the show!! :-) The only problem I for see is what to get?? I have such a list, I'll just have to bring all my birthday pennies!
Birthdays are great, meeting a friend today for lunch and shopping, the only thing that would make it better is to win this fabulous card :-)

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. I also saw you make this card on TV and was excited to see how you backed the triplet die cut with 2 different colours. I thought that the only way of doing this would be to cut the die in all the different colours and then to use the waste to fill the various sections in. This is very fiddly and time consuming. Your way is so much easier.

Bejay Roles said...

Hi, Sue,
It's extremely windy down here in my part of Cornwall but as I look out of the window I can see a blue sky and bright sunshine. Of course, the wind makes it too cold to stay outside for more than a couple of seconds and when I took the rubbish out just now I almost took off...yes the wind was THAT strong lol.

Today's card is just amazing. The background looks like pale leather! I love the flower and, of course, any time you add your wonderful stick pins the card is a winner in my eyes.

Hi Sue,

I love this card, really enjoyed the demo and I do love the tulle and stick pins. Gold with black and white is stunning. I got to watch the shows Monday night and Tuesday and thoroughly enjoyed your demos. I know it'll be a busy weekend but do have a good time. I got one of those emails telling about some new... Well, you know... Time to buy some lottery tickets I think! Sending you hugs from Billy and myself XXX

To everyone going to Ally Pally, have a fantastic time. I am very jealous but at least we have Hochanda to soften the blow!

Lorna, happy birthday! Have a lovely day and a great time at Ally Pally, birthday hugs xxx

Tina, biggest hugs to you and the family xxx

Molly, hope you and your family are OK, hugs xxx

Lorna, happy birthday, have a wonderful day and a great time at Ally Pally, hugs xxx

Billy sends wags and woofs to Annie, Bambi and Freddy xxx

Been resting and recovering this week so far. Last week I even sewed in dark glasses during one session as migraines and spine tried their best to stop me. I was so pleased I could help even if I pushed myself to the limit. Oddly, it is quite nice to do that time to time, really push my luck. Almost like saying "F.U" to my body, like a stroppy teenager! Body and brain did decide I needed some time out this week, a couple of visits from Mr Migraine and I have to say at just gone 8pm I'm ready for bed!

Big hugs all around, wishing you all happy crafting and I have lots of extra hugs if you need one, I'll be back soon as I can.

Lovely Card. I like the dies used especially the way you have used the Rococo Striplet die. Nice colour combination. Thanks for sharing.

I hope you have a nice time at Ally Pally.

Best wishes

Fabulous card and yes I bought the ef t after seeing you demo it on Hochanda but I bought mine from my local craft shop.
You bashing the flower was a brilliant moment. Those that missed the shows might be able to get them on Hochanda's catch up.
Happy Birthday Lorna.
I am getting jealous of all this Ally Pally talk I would so love to be there
Sending love n hugs to all my friends.
Wishing good things to all e

Hi Sue
Gorgeous card & looks very elegant & opulent with the stunning colours you have used together.

Evening Sue. Gorgeous card. The black and gold colours are always good together and the embossing on the gold card lifts it to another level. X

Like always, Gorgeous card Sue, The contrast with the gold black and white are well harmonious, like the complements pins.

Wow! Fascinating card, I'm still pondering on how you made it! Perhaps if I won it I could see how???? Cheeky I know but true!

Eunice said...

Wow what a gorgeous card Sue!! Love the Brisban die and the colors you used are awe inspiring!!!!!

Janice Brummett said...

This is a card that needs a "how to video"! Very pretty. I've just made a linen and lace holder for a "special card", and this would be perfect for it. Love the dies you used.

Lovely card, Sue. Sorry I haven't left any comments in a long while.
I have been taking a quick glimpse of your stunning cards from time to time.
Need to take some time to catch up on all the videos I've missed though.
I enjoyed seeing you on Hochanda last weekend.
Had to watch your shows on the web due to Hochanda being off air on
Freeview until the middle of May :-( So unable to record shows aaaaaaaargh !!!!!!

Hugs and Best Wishes to everyone,

Angela in S. Wales Xx

Hi Sue & Lovely Wilsonettes***Wow!!!! Just when I thought you couldn’t get another ‘Wow’ out of me Sue, you go & knock me sideways yet again the instant I saw this awe-inspiring & breathtaking gem, a total knock your socks off creation & to say that it stimulates my every little brain cell (not that many left lol) wouldn’t be wrong at all. I tried so desperately to watch you make this on Hochanda catch up, but alas it wasn’t to be, but now I see it before me I have the privilege of being able to gaze upon all of its wonders, especially the Rose Blooms Pinpoint EF, its beauty & delicacy has totally blown me away x x x

If you wish to withhold my name from the draw on this card Sue I really don’t mind at all, I just wanted to pop by & tell you how eternally grateful I am that you have shared this the ‘eighth wonder’ of the world with us. Thank you x x x

Well must close for now my friends, eyes are heavy. Special (((HUGS))) & cake care to one & all Love Beth B x x x x x
