Double Happily Ever After Sunday

Good Sunday morning all!  Today's double day features the Happily Ever After die set.  This first card was started by embossing a piece of milk card with the Jacobean Floral embossing folder.  I cut a double strip of cream pearls down the centre and ran them along the top and bottom edges of the embossed piece.  Next I cut the Happily Ever After decorative die three times, twice with a dusty pink (from my stash) and once from Chestnut brown card.  I backed all three with the opposite colours and cut the centres out to create three frames.  I staggered the frames and ran a piece of satin ribbon that had similar colours on it through the frames to create a buckle card.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with a small oval then mounted it on top of a decorative die from the Geneva die set.  I added this piece to the centre of the cards and then tied a double bow with the same ribbon and added it to the left side of the card.   I completed the card with a pierced milk mat, then added dusty pink and brown thin mats and a final milk mat.  The finished dimensions are 6" x  9" in size.  Scroll down for card number two.




For card number two, I created a background using a Classic Elegance Paper pad selection in blue.  I cut two strips out of the same paper and mounted them above and below the focal element raised for dimension.  I added a strip of pearls to both sides of each strip as accents.  I cut the same decorative die as above three times out of coconut white card, then mounted white backing pieces on each of them.  I cut one in half directly down the centre and mounted it flush with each edge.  I added a whole one to the centre in a diamond orientation, then cut the last one so that it just nipped away a smaller portion on each side, leaving the centre of the die as waste (at least on this card) and added it on top of the side cut dies.  I cut a circle out of the decorative paper and added it to the centre of the card and then cut and stacked several of the sentiment die and glued them in place atop of the decorative circle in the centre of the card.   I cut several of the Exquisite poppy die in white and scrunched them and made three flowers.  I mounted them around the focal element with Olive branches as accents.  The card was completed with a white on white mat.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  7 1/2" in size.

The winners of this week's Comment Game are:

Lovely cards Sue, both stunning in their own right, love the difference between them too.
Congratulations to comment winners.
June, you sounded so much better yesterday, let's hope that corner us well and truly turned.
Tina, sorry that Peter is not well. I hope he is feeling better. Today.
Elaine, that was a long day for Andrew but a smile here and there from the staff would have helped him. I hope he is not too tired or sick after it all.
Lynda, glad to hear you are being good, although Tracey's version is slightly different from yours. Take it easy, your new dies will still be there. Gentle hugs for you.
Tracey, glad you have your sister to support you, this was a hard time for you both. You are amazing, remember that.
Sharon, glad to hear you are feeling a bit stronger.
Hugs to all, poorly, missing friends too.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, 2 amazing cards today, both lovely but I prefer the 2nd one, it has my favourite colours and is not too long.

I have had a much better night again so I think as many of you have said it could be a turning point for me, the knee is not as painful and I feel much happier in myself, just got to get the bend right, thank you all for such support too.

Thinking of everyone today especially, Tina, Peter, Elaine, Andrew, Lynda, Tracy, Sharon and daughter, Theresa xx and anyone else I have forgotten.

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

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Sunday Smiles to you Sue. Oh my word, what a wonderful start to my day. Two stunning cards today, really breath taking. The chestnut brown card and matching bow is absolutely gorgeous and I need that in my collection as soon as, imagin that mixed with milk card, almost makes your mouth water lol. I can't put into words how much I love sample one, and sample 2 sings the biggest song ever, it's so pretty and delicate, your photography shows every beautiful detail in both the gorgeous design of the Forever After die collection and the end result, your stunning samples. I'm hoping there is or will be a video tutorial covering both these samples as I'm sure I'd have them on a loop lol. Stunning, both absolutely stunning.
Well done to our 3 lucky ladies enjoy your gift ladies, your day has started the best way possible.

Well it's come round to market day ! After a manic week I wonder if it will all be worth all the crazy madness ! By 7pm last night I was being told "enough is enough love" " you won't feel well enough to go at this rate" so I cut mats and layers for the 7x7 children's cards, and put all the other little bits n bob's I was planning to use slipped them all in their separate cello bags with envelope and price tag ready to make up while at market lol. So without further a due here comes my daily hug for you Sue and I'd better take my meds and get the flasks of strong HOT coffee ready for I hope not a long quiet day in the cold !!! xxx

Tina T said...

Good morning Sue and crafters all,
Two lovely cards today, I think no 2 is my favourite. Love the white on white. Both so different using the same die.
Pam - hope you are well now . Peter is a lot brighter today and is planning where he is going to put his workstation so he can use his airbrush in comfort.
June Smith - so pleased you are now sleeping better and finding a comfortable position for your leg.

Congratulations to this weeks giveaway winners.

Nice cards, Sue, great that you can get such different effects from one set of dies. Think preferring the first - mainly because of the opulent bow!

Good morning, Sue
Both of your cards this morning are beautiful and I love your choice of colour palette especially the first one. I even have scarves, jumpers and trousers in the exact colours of the first card!!
I have borrowed the Happily Ever After die from a friend and it is really beautiful!

Hello Sue,
Two exquisite cards today! I love both of them! The ribbon on the first one is gorgeous but I remember thinking that when I saw that ribbon previously! Beautiful colour combinations and lots of inspiration! Thank you!
Pat L - so sorry you have hurt your back !! Whatever have you been doing! Please take care! Sending you a big hug!
Elaine H - I follow your news about Andrew each and every day but was intrigued about his letter from Jose Mourinho! I thought that was lovely! There are a few Man Utd supporters in our family but with your post Mourinho has gone up in my estimation!
It is so still and calm outside today! It's strange because you could actually hear the leaves falling from the trees!! No - I had not been drinking! It must have been the effect of frost and sun!
I'm going before you all laugh at me!
PP and Laine - you are missing again!
Lynda - keep up the good work!
Love to you Sue and everyone,

The first is a great buckle Card and I like your colour combination. The second Card is very pretty and again a lovely colour. It's great to see how a colour change can alter the look of a die. Thanks for sharing.

Congratulations Jan on the Fosse, Karen Derbyshire and Janet Wilson.

Hi Sue and everyone

Two great cards, love them both.

Congratulations to the comment winners.

Sorry not been commenting, but have been looking in when I can. Thank you June for your well wishes for my holiday. I hope you can get to Mexico one day, I'm sure you'd love it. Glad to hear you are doing well and making good progress and have turned that corner.

At this moment I am on a sun lounger, sipping a cocktail, listening to a live band on a gorgeous sandy beach and soon to be going for lunch. How lucky am I? Don't mean to gloat just to explain why my comments are not regular. I am hoping to catch some of Johns shows on my iPad or hotel computers maybe. Have to say this is the best Hotel I've ever stayed in.

Wishing everyone well.

Love Helen xxx

What a beautiful pair of cards showing off the "Happily Ever After" die. I guess I passed right by this lovely die without realizing its versatility. the first card has to be my favorite..I love the take up of the colors from the ribbon. Love the trio of die cuts combination and love the embossing folder used. I don't see many wedding cards in my future but I would still love to own this die set.
Congrats to the three lucky winners!

What's especially nice about the second one is that all the places for mounting foam are well hidden -- still visual interest in the centers but they're not apertures.

Norah McPhee said...

Good evening Sue and the Wilsonettes,
I love the chestnut brown with the dusky pink flower, but there again i have always liked pink and brown as an option as i think they go so well together and this card just highlights that. That gorgeous brown and pink ribbon compliments it just so prefectly. The second card is beautiful also Sue in the pale blue and white with your beautiful poppies on it but i think number one does it for me flower. Thank you for two beautiful cards showing just how different the same die can look done in different colours and the differing effects that can be achieved. I hope that you are getting a wee bit rest along with all the work and play and the days are getting ticked off until your next appearance, although the only trouble with your next appearance, it means that Christmas is literally just around the corner.
Congratulations to all of this weeks winners, enjoy your prize when it arrives.
With love and crafty hugs

Sorry for my late comments, it has been a dreadful few days.
Sue both of these are absolutely stunning and it has been ages since you did a buckle card and this is so delightful.
I can't pssibly pick a favourite because both of these are wonderful and amazing and
i simply adore both of them.
