Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

Hello crafters!  I have a bit of a sparkly one for today's card giveaway!  I started with a piece of that now elusive blush card (it has been discontinued) and covered it with a piece of sticky adhesive sheet.  I cut a bunch of Heart sprays in white (maybe eight of them) and placed them all around the edge of the card in random directions.  I pressed them all into place, then trimmed the excess away.  (I was able to use some of the larger pieces to fill in small gaps), then I coated the remaining adhesive areas with Diamond Sprinkles.  I matted it with thin white and black mats.  Next I cut a smaller piece of white card and added a thin black mat.  I cut the Happily Ever After die in Blush card twice and nipped away the inside area.  I offset them and mounted them in the centre of the smaller piece.  I cut one more in black and nipped away the inside and outside ara, leaving a thin circular frame which I glued on to the off set pieces.  I cut several of the sentiment in white and stacked them.  I added one black one as an offset shadow and glued them in the centre of the card.  I completed the card with a white on white pierced mat.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  8" in size.  Leave me a comment to be included in the drawing to win this card!  All for now, Sue x

Beautiful card, gorgeous.
Tina T, so sorry that the diagnosis wasn't better. As you say he has beaten this once and he can do it again. We are all here for you both.
Elaine, how frustrating for Andrew waiting for the call. I laughed at his fish story, is that a typical fishermans tale lol.
Yvonne, I'm a Civil Servant and I work flexi hours so I prefer 7 till 1 daily, and I have the twins in the afternoon while my daughter is at work.
Tracey, I would love to see the pics, how are we going to do this, hmm.
Tina, hope you and Mick are well.
Cheryl Brown, I'm shocked that you are encouraging Yvonne to steal my medals, shame on you lol.
Hugs all round

Morning Sue. This is a gorgeous card. I know what you mean about the blush card, i bought the last six packs from the craft shop that i go to and asked if she could try and get some more but no such luck it has all gone lol. I bought the happily ever after die when i got the arbour gate, wedding couple and the Mr & Mrs, they are all fantastic dies and cut beautifully. Will have a try at making this one later today.
Best Wishes.

Tina T said...

Good morning Sue and crafters all,
Beautiful card today, love the colours and the way you have done the background.
What a pity the blush card has been discontinued, are CE doing a similar colour of the card. There is no wonder I couldn't get any for a wedding card I am making.
The CT scan my hubby is waiting for has still not happened - scanner broken.
Take care in the heat!!!!
Love and crafty hugs,
Tina T xxxx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, another beautiful card today, I must admit I do use a lot of the glitter jewels on my cards, they really do give them that professional look, who needs card shops..............

I am sure there were lots of you who saw our Team GB coming back from Rio with all their medals, the media did them proud as did British Airways, Victorious, and with a gold nose too. Well done to everyone who took part not only in the limelight but also those who work so tirelessly in the background.

Tina T, thinking of you, any news of the scanner being fixed or another hospital doing it?

Laine172, you would be welcome at one of my classes anytime, I am in Chatham, Kent. It started off that I went to a local craft shop and they held classes one evening a week, then they got another warehouse next to the shop and we progressed to having the craft group on a Wednesday morning, unfortunately the lady that used to do it had a few health problems and could not do it anymore, so all the ladies in the craft group asked me to take it over (believe me I was very nervous - but it went swimmingly). This carried on for about 3 years and then the owners decided to downsize so the warehouse had to go, this left us with nowhere to have our craft group, so we looked around and found a local church who rent out a hall to us every Wednesday, I do the instructions each week for the card we are making and the ladies either copy what I have done or do their own take on it, believe me it is amazing what they produce, I am so proud of them. Then I got into Parchment with the Groovi system and we extended the group for another 2 hours to do this, so really you could say I run 2 craft sessions on a Wednesday. If I can do it anyone can, If anyone want's to try it and needs any advice then please let me know.

Anyway that is enough about me, got to get ready soon for craft as I need to go to the local shops before I start there.

Elaine and Andrew, well the little fish got away, never mind, blame it on the weather and try again today.

Tina and Mick hope all is well with you both.

Pam you hold onto them medals...really Cheryl Brown and Yvonne what are we going to do with you, I think you should both sit on the naughty step for a while and no giggling either.

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

Good Morning Sue. Beautiful card such a shame that the blush card has been discontinued. Marion S x

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. Oh my goodness those of us that are iced snow and diamond sprinkles +++ addicts can just imagin how much amazing sparkle this background has, it may even out bling the blushing bride lol talking of blush, how pleased am I that I stocked up on a few packs of blush card it was my all time favourite of the pastel shades - I do hope that CE have something similar on the cards (if you pardon the pun at silly O'clock !) I think it's such a brilliant idea to use these leaves as a background on a celebration card such as this the heart's just add that touch of romance, brilliant. It sure will be a lucky person that is chosen to join the W. W. C. (Wednesday Winners Club) for those that have not viewed Sue's blog before today.
Sending my usual hugs to you for today and hope you have an enjoyable day xxx

Hi Sue
Beautiful card, quick comment as I'm off on holiday to Greece now not sure how often I will get to comment for the next week
Maureen Killen welcome back, I missed you and hope you had a lovely holiday. Thanks for asking after Sarah, long story but outcome was no surgery possible for Sarah as risks were too great. My son was in contact with the Restricted Growth Association and they recommended a surgeon in America so he is hoping to get her medical records from GOSH to forward for a second opinion

The Heart Spray die is on my wishlist! X

Debra K. said...

Oh, what sparkly loveliness! I love the background you've created, definitely something I'll be trying. The whole card is a wonderful design. Sad to see the blush card go, can it be all that difficult to make a similar colour? Debra x

Denise Bryant said...

Love the Heart Sprays! So pretty!

Anonymous said...

Lovely card for the giveaway, Sue, particularly like the way you've made the background, it's so dainty - going to give the holly sprays an outing for something similar.
Tracy - you've always deserved a gold medal for bravery - but now an extra one for pixie powders yay !
Tina T - so sorry for your news, hope CT scan soon and treatment can start quickly. We as a family have a horror story re CT breakdown (worst possible outcome) so know the frustration.
Pat L - good wishes for little Sarah, so disappointing for her not to get further treatment here.
Hugs to all. Missing NannaTina so hope Mick's doing well.

Hi Sue thank you for reminding us how you made this background. I really loved it when I saw you demo it but had forgotten about using small die cuts as backing papers. Am holding on to my few sheets of blush paper for those really special cards. Hope it returns in the future. Sending best wishes

lydia jordan said...

Morning Sue.
Gorgeous card, love the soft colours.

June Horrocks said...

Just stunning sue love everything about this card and the sparkle is just beautiful you are one gifted lady thank you
Love always

Tressa said...

This is certainly a background with a difference, I like the idea of creating one with a spray die. I don't have this spray die but could try it with one of the others.

Like others I am being frugal with my blush card, fortunately I don't have a lot of cards to make except at Christmas, so I reckon I can make mine last until suitable replacement is available!!!

A lovely idea to use the heart sprays as a background. It is such a shamme that the blush card has been discontinued as it sounds as though it is a favourite of so many Wilsonettes including myself!
It is going to be a scorcher here today so off to do some shopping earlier than usual and then I can relax and potter in the garden!

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a delightful card and I love the way you have used the heart sprays to create the background. I think I must have somehow lubricated the little cogs in my brain as I am already seeing the holly spray used in a similar manner on green card for Christmas. If I try really hard I wonder if I can think of anything else :-)

Stunning card love the blush card, I need to get crafting my daughter Kara has a birthday on Saturday and I've not even started it yet
We have a meeting on the 1st with social services and care company to sort out problems, I have stopped the morning call as they would turn up between 9.45-12 so no good to me so I deal with it now so a lot less stress for me, had the worse ever night last night as Mick was suffering with his chest rattling had problems keeping water down so rang district nurse who said ring 111 who after lots of questions told me to ring GP this morning so I did he came and has given him antibiotics and linctus was concerned with SATS as they where between 87-93 and wanted him to go to hospital but he said NO but I've said if he gets worse I will call an ambulance he has asked that dr tomorrow check it again
Thank you all for your kind words, wishes and hugs they keep me going
Tina T same thing happened to Mick got all way to PET scanner to be told not working went back 2 days later he is due another next month hope all goes ahead soon big hugs
Happy crafting

Hi sue and crafters.
Oooh I remember u demoing this one and its spring to my mind to try it with the star sprays for Xmas thanks for a reminder hee hee.
Just superb.

Was talking to our Lynda Brock today via iPad. Now I have a face and voice to the name. We blethered for a good hour too. And did a tour of our craft rooms and a view of some cards too.
Goodness knows why I didn't think to face time sooner as I tend to be forgetful that I have it!! Lol. I might FaceTime hazel soon I just remembered her emails have iPad on the bottom.
Oh no I hear her cry!! Lol.

See u all tomorrow. Love to all xxx

A really beautiful card Sue. I like how you made the background pop with diamond sprinkles.

Evening Sue
I would be over the moon to receive this card so if you could draw my name that would be lovely x
Like many others I am puzzled as to why the blush card has been discontinued. It is such a stunning colour and would have thought it would be a really good seller. Oh well, fingers crossed there will be something else that will come along that will satisfy our needs!
Love the background on this card. I adore the heart sprays and this shows their beauty off perfectly. I also love the star sprays and even though you released them along with your Christmas dies I use them all year round. I think that this card could be tweaked to suit so many occasions. Gorgeous, thanks Sue x
Once again the weather has been soooo hot. Too hot for doing anything. Couldn't sleep last night so feeling a little jaded today. I did manage to make a card this morning. I used the hugs die and one of the backgrounds I made the other day with my lava red, sun yellow and rich gold pixie powders. They just make the most stunning focal point and just in case I have not mentioned it - I LOVE THEM.
The card was for a friend of mine whose birthday it is tomorrow. She used to live opposite but moved 4 years ago. When we were neighbours we used to see each other at least 3 times a week. We saw each other through some pretty tough times and although she has only moved 5 minutes away by car we rarely get the chance to catch up in person. I hadn't seen her since May so it was so lovely to spend some time together. She is going through a bit of a tough time at the moment so a good old talk, a few tears and thankfully quite a lot of laughter and we managed to spend about 4 hours together even though it seemed like only 5 minutes.
I am hoping to see her again over the weekend as Jake said he would take me over there and pick me up. I miss her company and her shoulder since she has moved and she definitely needs my shoulder at the moment.
Consequently I am feeling rather drained so will catch up on news tomorrow.
Lots of love to everyone.
Happy thoughts

That's a brilliant use of the sprays. I thought it was a new background die I had to get hold of. Great for a wedding card too.

Hello Sue,
Sorry I've been missing for a couple of days but have had a friend staying! She is going home tomorrow so has gone to bed a little earlier tonight in order to be fit to face the M6 tomorrow! I haven't been able to read the other posts either but I will try to catch up tomorrow!
Today's card is really beautiful and I can't understand why that beautiful, soft pink has been discontinued either. I have a fair bit left because I bought a lot when I heard it may be discontinued.
Whoever wins this card will be a very fortunate lady or gentleman!
Lots of love to all - missed you!
