Heartfelt Thanks

Hi there my crafty friends!  I have a soft custard yellow, black and white offering for you today.  I started by creating a background using the custard yellow card and the outer die from the Lotus Striplet.  I cut it four times around a square, slotting it back into place from a previous cut but turning it a right angles each time.  I backed it with white card then created a frame for it.  I used both the Double Pierced Square Noble sets the original and the B set).  I made a multi layered frame using both white and black card.  I attached it with foam over my background.  I cut the Pacific Ocean Tag in custard and backed it in black for contrast.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the oval from the other tag in the set.  I seated the tag with the sentiment in the centre of the card.  Using the Striped Nasturtiums, I cut several of varying sizes of the solid petal and assembled them so they were cascading across the card.  I added white flatback pearls to all the centres as accents. The card was completed with custard white and black mats and layers. The finished dimensions are 8" x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Tina, it's good that you have your lounge sorted but no more climbing. I hope your family meal brought you some comfort, so good to have friends and family around you at this time, Hugs to you and Owen.
Elaine, Andrew would have enjoyed his walk and Helen is always so careful with him, she is a gem. Big family hugs for you.
Tracey, you so do need a holiday so get saving girl, though like you I can't resist buying Sues lovely dies.
June hope your craft day went well. You are doing so well now, I'm pleased for you.
Norah, thanks for the tip on Ribena Winter Pice, git some and it is a lovely hot drink. Hope you feel better.
Myra, do you know the same devil that dumped stuff in your craft room has been doing that in mine for years now, and I can't catch him.
Yvonne, are you still in Newcastle, hope the parents continue to improve. How is Laine, missing her chatter.
My lovely eldest daughter did a Sunday roast dinner Meaks on Wherks yesterday, to help her sister who moved into her new house this weekend, and dropped a meal off for me. I could get used to that lol.
Hugs to all uncluding missing friends, wrap up well and keep warm, it's very cold out there this morning.,

Fantastic card. I definitely need to have a go at this one but my craft room is still such a mess that I really need to have a clear up first.
Crafty hugs to all who are suffering or in need.
Pam, take care and don't forget the scarf around the nose and mouth when you go out - it helps warm the air going into your lungs according to my daughter's doctors.
Happy crafting.

Good morning. Love the way you created the background with the lotus striplet. A really different colour combination today but very effective. Keep buying your other dies so blow what saved for the Noble dies. ..Must add them!!! They make such great layers. Have a good day.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Happy Monday Sue. A new week of beautiful inspiration from our favourite friendly designer has started with a real beauty. It has that clean fresh look to it with that touch of black to highlight such a happy spring like yellow that in turn highlights your sweet flower dies, who couldn't love starting a new week with your beautiful work. Thank you CE for your magical glue, and thank you Sue for your In The Garden SB collection. I took a card blank plus mats and a SB frame already cut to market yesterday plus my tiny die cutting machine and all your SB accessories. Even before the glue was dry I'd got someone waiting for it lol no pressure !!! I told you they would be moved and I wasn't wrong, so a BIG thank you from me to you. This is the reason your new 'clever' collection will be my first purchases. You are wonderful you know xxx

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, oh yes another super duper card, love the dies used and saw John had made one of these recently too, I am going to fish out my die and cut some out, see how you inspire me Sue.

Had great time yesterday at the workshop, learnt new techniques that I have not tried before, using pencils and water, way out of my comfort zone but so enjoyed it.

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

Bejay Roles said...

Hi, Sue,
Another stunner today. I really like the smart background, striplet dies are so versatile aren't they. The nasturtiums look really classy in white card, it's my ambition to be able to one day have all your flower dies.
Pam, pace yourself on your first day back at work and keep warm.
I need to go to town today and, although the sun is out it's getting pretty close to what we call frosty weather down in my part of Cornwall so I need my fluffy socks as the doc has told me a condition I've never error heard of which means I shouldn't let my toes get cold. It's hard to put trainers on over think so keep though lol.
When I get back its crafting time...if you can call painting my metal bistro table with Hammerite crafting lol. I decided to bring it indoors as I don't have a dining table but noticed some rust spots. As I can't find the right colour, it's verdigris effect, I've gone for a slightly paler green, so instead of patching I'm finding I have to paint the entire thing...the chair got two coats yesterday, crikey that stuff stinks lol.
Happy Monday everyone, hugs to all who need them.

Your card is beautiful and I am looking forward to making a similar card using your attractive colour combination myself.
At my Craft Club on Saturday I played with my new Trellis Edger and although my first attempts at creating one of your lovely frames were not perfect, I can probably disguise "not so perfect" corners with a message or flowers!!!

Hello Sue and all
What a clever background ! Love the way you have used the lotus striplet Sue, now on the top of my list as it makes the most amazing background.

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
Another WOW for us today. I really love the colours as they are so Springlike . We were looking at how big the daffodils in the garden are already and some snowdrops already blooming! I digress - your card reminded me of Spring and the use of the Striplet is stunning . I don't have that one but it is beautiful in its simplicity! As ever really pretty flowers and the touch of black is a bit like the icing on a cake - the perfect finishing touch!
Pam - I'm so pleased I'm not the only one lol!!! Hope today at work goes well and doesn't tire you out!
We have sunshine here just now but it's a bit of a mixed bag in Britain today weather wise.
June - glad you enjoyed your workshop! Like you I have the pencils and obviously the water but the expertise is lacking a bit here! Wish I could have been at that class!
Deb C - good to see you! Missed you!
PP and Laine missing both of you also! Miss your fun and frolics!
Sue - a friend of mine has already pre- ordered a couple of your new Dies! I told her she was no help at all! Lol!
Love as always to Tina, Tina and Elaine .

Congratulations to the winner of the Wednesday card and the comment winners as I've been recovering in a darkened room after meeting PP!! ha ha. Really it's been a hectic 3 days here and I haven't been able to meet and greet you.

Hi Sue. Ooooh this is such a beautiful spring like card today !!! I do love the colour combination you have used. Your Lotus Striplet die is fab !!! Such a versatile die. It is most definitely on my wish list !!! I think you and John have both created fab backgrounds with this die. I love the Pacific Ocean tag dies to. I have this die but I have not used it yet. I made an anniversary card for my parents 52nd Wedding Anniversary yesterday !!! I used some of the dies from my new Pacific Ocean collection and I was very pleased with my finished card. I used the Pacific border dies and the Bora, Bora die set. I used several colours to. Primrose yellow, Mocha, Antique pearlescent gold and the Vanila pearlescent card. Yes you've guessed it Sue. I used the paper piecing tecnique !!! Whenever I get stuck I always end up using that technique !!! I really love the Nasturtiums flower dies. They are so, so pretty. They finish your card perfectly. Thank you for sharing your beautiful card Sue. Sending lots of love to you today from Tres x x x

Hello Sue.

I think this is such a soft delicate pretty card. I like the way you have used the dies and the colour is lovely. Thanks for sharing.

Best wishes

Love the colors of this card--looks cheerful on a gloomy looking winter day. Thanks for the instructions on how to create the background piece.
I may not be online for a while now--after 6 weeks in a cast, my arm has not healed so I am having surgery to have a plate put in to stabilize the fracture.
Hope everyone else is staying warm and healthy.
