Hello Friend

Hi bloggers!  I just love the detail in this Magnolia Adornment and thought it would look lovely done as a background.  What do you think?  I used the Magnolia Adornment decorative die without the outer cutting edge to cut the design four times into a piece of Mocha card.  I added a piece of sticky adhesive sheet behind it and backed it with a piece of milk card to show through from the back.  For the  exposed adhesive on the front, I burnished it with Diamond Sprinkles to add a bit of bling, but very subtly.  I wrapped a piece of two tone Mocha ribbon around the left side then added a double bow.  I stamped a friendly sentiment and framed it with the smaller die in the centre of the Melbourne die set.  I added a thin Mocha card frame to it as an accent and adorned it with small cream pearls.  I added a pierced milk mat, a thin Mocha mat and another milk mat to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/4" x  10 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

What a great card, Sue, easy to achieve (apart from tying the bow!) This die is the only one I have from the latest collection and have only done a test cut so far, and very easy it was for such an ornate die.
Pam - you always say what I'd like to - only so much better!! So thank you.
Sue - went on cheesecloth hunt yesterday - the store starting with B and ending with Q duly had its paint aisle visited - only they'd never heard of it. What? So came home and ordered online. Will be fully prepared!! Grunge ahead.
Andrew and Mick - well wishes as ever. Wheely too, a lot to cope with.
Tracy - so hard for you and your Dad, hoping the pain is under control and he can manage some eating. Think of you so much, be brave.

Diane Green said...

Hi Sue
What a beautiful sophisticated card today and such a lovely bow, reminds me of a very expensive box of chocolates ( the sort you keep the ribbon from because we crafters never miss an oportunity do we!!). This die is so pretty and looking at the card you could make it into a simple sympathy card without the bling and bow, we all know these are not the easiest cards to make. So versatile Sue, I'm off to look at my other configuration dies now, although this die is calling to me quite loudly now! Thank you for sharing.
Love Diane G xxx
Elaine Tracey and Tina thinking of you all and sending big hugs xxx
Pam as P says you say just the right things and I know by reading your comment if I've missed something when I've read the comments. You are a stat, sending you a hug too xxx

nattyboots said...

Hi Sue
I think your card is stunning, loving the background and color your ribbon really finishes the card off a treat.

Andrew took a couple of walks yesterday , and his color was a lot better , the staff had trouble getting the intravenous drip in ,after 55mins they gave up so allowed us 10 mins to see him before visiting was over, they said the drip had to go in today so someone was coming later to try, Andrew also had to have a scan as there are a couple of things that need looking into.
We will know the results later today.
When i phoned last night the nurse said they are sure the drip went into the vein but into the back ? not sure what that means , but Andrew was going for an XRay to see how things were looking .
Take Care everyone
Big hugs to all

Tracy Stitt said...

Morning sue and crafters.

Lovely card I don't know how u manage to come up with all the ideas but I guess that's why ur our queen of craft. Lol

Well ladies dad ate a bit more after the hospital yesterday. I guess being told eat more or die quicker seems to have worked. If that wasn't an incentive to get treatment to prolong the cancer I don't know what is. So when we got home he several small meals. Granted they'd gave him liquid morphine and ibuprofen on top of his other drugs. But it's taken the pain away and he's happy. I feel helpless when he's suffering.
Going to a carers day today at the hospice in Ayr to see what's involved and to speak to others who are on the same journey.

Johanna. Thanks for ur support I'm guessing it's bringing back memories for u. I hope u got the support u needed when u went thru it. And any tips u can give I'll gladly take on board xx

Thank u all for ur kind wishes as always xx

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and the Wilsonettes,
This is a real opulent looking card Sue with the mocca card and the choice of ribbon. This is definitely for that friend that we all have who is stylish with their designer clothes and house. Mines is more a but and ben with not enough room so would look decidedly out of place. I think if it came here it would be saying to itself, "Oh (in that posh voice) please do get me out of here, i am not accustomed to living in these sort of surroundings" hee hee hee. Right now i've got my normal head back instead of the silly one i hope you have a great day Sue and thank you for the beautiful card.
Rory's away up to Glasgow with the college today to the transport museum which would be right up my street but unfortunately not Rory's. He was fine going to it when he was at school as Gordon his history cum games cum numerous other hats brought things to life for him and he enjoyed that. I think because he isn't going with Gordon that is why he is not looking forward to it. Gordon like the rest of the teachers at the Secondary Support Service were teachers that wanted to teach these children and because they had more flexability they didn't just stay in class, they went all sorts of places from up the Ochil Hills to Culross(pronunced coo ris). These teachers were multi talented in numerous subjects and very special people. Anyway this is the colleges' idea of a treat for the last day of term for them.
We have had glorious weather the past fortnight and today it is raining, of course because it is Harry's birthday party tomorrow and there is going to be a bouncy castle and barbeque and games. You can always bet your bottom dollar that we will get horrible weather just when you have everything arranged for a party. Oh well just as well Harry's other Gran and Grandad have a large bungalow to accomodate all the people, lol. His party is early because they arranged their "summer" holidays to lord knows where and won't be here for his birthday on Thursday. Now they see him every day and have done since he was born a year ago and they still managed to book a holiday on his special day. They go away again in September and then at the start of December and then again in February so as you can see they just couldn't miss or have it earlier or later than his birthday. I would settle for just one holiday in the year never mind 4 plus weekends away into the bargain. Oh well never mind i can look forward to a couple of days perhaps later on with my friends again for a meet up.
Have a lovely day everyone even if it is raining just think it is saving you going out with a watering can to water all your new borderies that you have all planted and tubs, it is also making them all bright and fresh looking again with a little wash from the rain. Hugs to all the Wilsonettes that need or could do with or maybe just want, you are welcome to them

Lorraine Freeman said...

A really elegant card today. I love the die but not so keen on the colour as it shows on my screen.
Glad your Dad is a bit easier Tracy and I hope you find the carrier's meeting helpful. Hugs for you both.
Elaine, I hope all is well with Andrew's drip.
Hoping Mick continues to go from strength to strength Tina.
I have a horrible head today. It feels like someone is driving a massive nail into it.
I am taking it easy watching The Queen's birthday celebration. I love the royalist but I do find myself thinking about how much money they due do birth. I should have worked harder when I could to make things more comfortable for myself as I am now.
Anyway hubby has kindly said I could book a crafty retreat for myself. Obviously if Sue had done one that's what I would have booked but instead I have booked onto a Anna Marie Designs one in November. I have to book an extra night as it starts at 9 in the morning. Well it's a very swish hotel so that won't be a hardship :)
Wheely, I hope you get a break from the migraines.

Hello Sue
I think using this die as a background is inspired I shall be looking at my dies in a new light in future.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, the bow makes this look such a classy card (I agree with the chocolate boxes other Wilsonettes mention). I love the colours, the dies used, all those little pearls and the bow itself although the card is a little large for me. I wonder if it would look as good as a 7" x 7" with just two diecuts, probably not.

Tracy - so sorry the news yesterday was not better for your dad. I hope he can stay pain free and enjoy eating to where he would be able to undergo an operation. (((hugs))) for you both.

Hello Sue, I feel as if I've been trying to comment on this card all day! I keep being interrupted ! It is beautiful! I love those colours and wear them a lot , lol! I am very fond of that Magnolia Die - it's really very useful! Thank you!
Norah - you are an absolute gem and I hope Harry's party goes well tomorrow! I can't believe he is a year old already! Hope you have a dry day at least and sun if possible!
We had some rain today and it brought our little hedgehog out in daylight! It was lovely to see! I hope he/ she was careful if venturing further afield!
Pam - if I haven't been able to pop back to see how everyone is I know you will inform me of anything important in the morning! You put everything so nicely and over quite a few years now I have appreciated what you do! Thank you!
I hope everyone has as good a weekend as possible! Love to everyone who really needs our support and care!

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Good evening lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

Another showstopper! This card is beautifully elegant, the colour palette is rich and sumptuous with just the right amount of sparkle to enhance the Magnolia adornment die. I love the huge bow, where oh where did you pick up that gorgeous ribbon? It reminds me of that iconic quote "life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you'll get next" :-) I'm also getting flashbacks of the Milk Tray advert with the man in black going to extreme lengths to deliver the box of choccies......ladies of a certain age will remember this:-)
Anyways, back to the card, I love it more than a box from Thorntons....high praise indeed!.....it may be on the large side but who cares, bigger is most definitely better in this instance.
Can I just say that yesterday's card was jaw droppingly fabulous, I love it when you release your inner grunge monster:-) please do more of this style of card, it really suits your style and flair for the magnificent.
Well, good weather has officially ended and the rain is back with a sting in it's tail:-( I had developed quite a routine of having a morning bath, washing my hair, doing a spot of housework before spending the afternoon lounging in the sunshine, now I'm back to reality with a bump....I dearly hope that that good spell wasn't the sum of our summer!
It has been brought to my attention that certain cheeky Wilsonettes ie Yvonne, have been lobbying for their name to be used in your frames and tags range. Can I suggest that since the names have been demure and sophisticated thus far, that this particular name would cast a shadow bordering on 'common' across the range and that something with more class such as Lorraine would be far more in keeping with the theme....just a thought. And while we are on the subject, would Croydon, Yvonne's hometown , really be first choice on a list of potential place names for a future British set? How about cities with cultural and historical significance such as Stirling?
I can't wait until the next release later this month and then your next appearance on Hochanda, it's so exciting:-) What delights will you have in store, how can you possibly top what has been released before? I don't know how but you always do.
Tracy, you must feel overwhelmed by the enormity of your situation, my heart goes out to you. You have proved that you have an inner strength though and that will hopefully carry you through this experience because your Dad needs you to be there for him as his illness develops. I hope the morphine keeps him comfortable and that in turn he is able to eat enough to boost his weight. Thinking of you bothxxxx
Elaine, well done to Andrew, he obviously has drive and determination, hugs to you bothxxxx
Nana Tina, hope Mick is continuing to improve and that you are well tooxxxx
Wheely Bad, sorry to hear that you have been suffering again, I wish that there was some solution to your affliction but you soldier on so bravely regardless. Hoping you have a pain free weekendxxxx
Yvonne, what happened to you yesterday?Still lost under a mountain of washing I assume? I have to question your priorities and claim to be Sues favourite when you prefer to watch another spin cycle rather than visit this wonderful blog!:-). Hope you're okay......
Extra hugs to all my blog buddies, you are a wonderful crowdxxxx
