Best Wishes

 Hi bloggers!  Yes, it is Thursday and there is normally a video card here each week.  However, from time to time, we need to adjust the video schedule as we either get too far ahead or too far behind!  The goal is to not run out of videos at all so for a few weeks going forward the videos will drop down to twice a week instead of three a week.  It will actually be on Thurs and Sat., but it was my mistake this week by posting the video on Tuesday!  I am definitely a creature of habit!  Today's card is one of those sort of cards that I love to do as they are really quick and easy, but are really pretty too!  I started by covering a piece of black card with a sticky adhesive sheet.  I cut two of the New Zealand Noble Borders in black, peeled the backing off of the sticky sheet and laid them down so they were offset with a small gap between them.  Next I used Summer Meadow gilding flakes and rubbed the into all the exposed adhesive areas.  I refined them with a piece of Rubit Scrubit pad, removing any excess flake, then trimmed the panel, taking off the excess border edges.  I wrapped a piece of white seam binding around it vertically, then added a messy bow.  I made a flower out of the Sweetheart Flowers and added a gold paint pen to the edges.  I seated the flower on the bow and added Lace Edges Leaves in both white and black as accents. I stamped my sentiment and cut it with the Pierced Flags die set, then matted it with a slightly larger one cut in black.  I used the same gold paint pen around the edge then tucked the end under the floral element.  I added my usual paper pierced mat and layers to complete the card.   The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  9" in size. All for now, Sue x

Ooh so opulent with a touch of gold! Lovely card, Sue, and great use of the noble borders. Will miss Tuesday videos but still feel so fortunate to have 2 a week.
Nanna Tina, Tracy, Elaine - special hugs.
fluffycat - oh my, don't know whether to feel sad or glad for you! Guess you may well get to see Jay, as it seems he wants to be with you - wonder why his mum wasn't frantically looking for him? Just hope he'll be happy now.
Another sunny day in Wales - blessed.

GM Sue. Fab card. Love the paint pen effect. Looks like foiling.

Nanna Tina said...

Hi Sue
I so need the noble border die I now have some gilding flakes so once I buy this die I can give this ago I also love the flowers
Mick did manage to eat some ice cream and drink milk but still feels very sick so he's having some repeat scans to see if there's a reason for feeling ill or if it's all down to his medication and antibiotics, they have stopped some tablets and reduced the dosage on others and putting him on a vitamin IV to see if that helps, he has had a visit from his son he hasn't seen for nearly 3 years as he lives away so that brought a smile to his face
Happy crafting
Love and huge hugs to all
Love Tina xxxx

Morning Sue. This is a very dramatic card with the colours you have used but by changing the colours you could make it more femine if you dont like the rich colours. I still cant get the sweetheart flower dies as they are always sold out but i will keep trying. So pleased your son came through his surgery and now on the road to a great recovery. Keeping everything crossed for you all Elaine H.
Best Wishes.

Stunning card sue. I'm sure I've watched u do this one as a demo on a show its so lovely to watch u do it.

Thank u all for ur kind wishes yesterday ladies
Dad was quite perky last night. But I guess getting the fluids into him has helped a lot.
My hubby said he looked a iittle out of it but that was probably the morphone lol.
I'm going for reflexology this afternoon at Ayrshire cancer support so hopefully that'll relax me a bit. Plus the global market has arrived in town do no doubt will buy a few goodies from it.

Love to all xx

Hi Sue
Wow oh wow a fabulous card and yet simple to make with the noble borders, love it. I watch your you tube videos as soon as they come out so this way we get to see another card and appreciate your wonderful designs

Tracy hope the stent helps your dad even to eat a little bit, and the reflexology helps you xxx
Elaine such a long time in theatre for your son, hope he will soon be on the mend
Nanna Tina hugs for you and Mick wish they could find the cause of the sickness
Maureen you must have magical powers, my son got word this morning that Sarah's operation is scheduled for the 21st June so not long to wait. After 2 years waiting and the wheelchair lift finally being installed, the remote control to allow Sarah to operate it herself didn't work, if you didn't laugh you'd cry
Hugs and best wishes everyone

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, beautiful, rich, opulent, stunning - I could go on but I won't lol. Yes, there is a lot of black but the gilding flakes and white finishing touches stop it from being too heavy so as you may have guessed, I like it!

Elaine - so glad the surgery went well, it certainly was a long day for everyone.
NannaTina - seeing his son is sure to boost Mick's spirits.
Tracy - enjoy the reflexology.

Jay was back sunning himself on my shed roof when I left the house this morning so we definitely haven't seen the last of him :-)

Paula said...

This is such a very pretty card Sue! I've never been into gilding flakes, although I bought some not long after I started making cards. The good thing is, I even know where they are, a most unusual event for me. :) For once I don't need to go shopping before I can make this card, my bank manager will be happy!
Hugs for all those in need of them today,

Tracy - I'm so pleased your Dad was a bit brighter last night and I hope the stent will help him . You look after yourself too - or your sister will shout at you too! Lol! Enjoy your reflexology!
Pat L - so pleased you got a date for Sarah's op. Sorry about the remote control! Typical isn't it! Hopefully it will be put right very soon.

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Good evening lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

Don't feel so bad Sue, we have been positively spoiled with three video per week and I for one are more than happy to see any of your gorgeous creations In any format. I can appreciate all of the hard work, preparation and time that goes in to making your videos, I assume that you film multiple ones in a day and thus it must be gruelling for you. Thankyou for all the effort you put in on our
Like others, today's card is rather familiar, I think that I may be confusing it with the demo you did at Ally Pally for Hochanda where you used this particular technique. I love the boldness of the black set against the rich opulent gold tones....I can't get enough of black on a card, I find it striking and sophisticated. The NZ border is beautifully ornate, complimenting the richness of the burnished gold and the floral adornment is simply stunning....the lacy leaves and sweetheart flowers were a welcome addition to my die collection some time ago and an absolute must have.....I can see me blatantly copying your genius if you don't mind my cheek:-)
Yet another scorcher today, we got ready to go out for a coffee with a friend and waited in the sunshine outside. Time passed, and after a while we became fidgety and puzzled...Gill was nearly an hour late which was totally out of character. My mum called her but there was no worry that there has been an accident or something equally horrendous.....I thought, double check the calender, and yes! We were a full day early for our outing!??! My mum felt like such a plonker, and I didn't argue the fact:-)
So another couple of hours was spent blissfully sunbathing and catching up with the don't see each other or speak much from Sept-April, then in the summer months, weather permitting, you become bestest buddies again.
Frances, we don't adopt a cat, rather it chooses us and I think Jay has definitely given you the seal of approval:-) it looks like he's here to stay but I have to agree with P, why wasn't his owner beside herself with worry about his whereabouts? When Darcey went missing I printed over 100 A4 posters of her and stuck them to lamp posts, shop windows and put them through the doors of everyone in the local area and it was because of these posters that she was eventually found:-)
Pat, good news about Sarah's op though annoying about her remote control....have you checked the batteries? Seems obvious but sometimes there is a simple answer.
Tracy, your reflexology session sounds does the market, what kind of stuff do they sell and where exactly is it it Kilmarnock?
Nana Tina, my heart goes out to Mick, persistent nausea is no fun atall and he must be so fed up:-( what a pleasant surprise to see his son though, hopefully that will give him a little boostxxxx
Yvonne, hope you are okay honey, I know all of that rain is depressing, especially when you can't hang out your washing all week but take heart, your new washing machine may have a tumble dryer function:-)xxx
Maria, no danger of burning, my skin has the resistance of a rhinos!:-)
Elaine, glad to hear your sons lengthy operation went well, I hope his recovery is swift and without complicationsxxx
Gentle hugs to Beth, Rebecca, Jan, Theresa, Linda, Lorraine, Lynda, Wheely bad, P, Pam and anyone in need of a little squeezexxxx

No news really except Mr W brought me a lovely carving of a dog that could be Billy, same lazy tail draped on leg, laying on floor with his gremlin ears half cocked. The similarity is uncanny. I adore it. Just woke up so visiting before I go sleep in the bed (instead of sofa where I fell asleep after the football). Busy day with PA here PM so I'm tired and sore but happy that I accepted more help. It meant I got a shower and didn't flake immediately after! Will try and be back soon xxx

Hugs to Wilsonettes everywhere, plenty to go round so if you need extra hug be my guest xxx
