You're Special To Me

Hello there my crafty friends!  You had a quick glimpse of this one during one of the blog die launches, but I thought it deserves it's own day on the blog!  You will have to imagine a pretty lavender sort of colour here though, because try as I might, the wisteria card always looks grey when I photograph it!  I do apologise as I know it is the photographer (aka me!) as I just can't get the light right with this colour!   I selected a piece of wisteria card and embossed it with the Butterfly Dreams embossing folder.  I used the centre of the Madeleine die set to create a round frame with detail for my sentiment.  I attached it in the centre of the card with foam.  I cut four of the Starflower Cluster in black and cut the matching flowers in white and attached them behind.  I added mounting foam to all of them and arranged them around the centre sentiment.  I did some further matting with white, black and wisteria to complete the card. and added pearls to all the corners and flowers as accents.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and fellow admirers,

Oh yes! This is so beautiful, it makes me weak in the knees. Well actually my whole body is sore from cleaning all night. Didn't gat anything installed because they discovered they'll need a bucket truck, and they don't know how far up the road they'll have to go to join hands with civilization.
I hope everyone came through the storm in fine shape.
Love,
Donita

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. The sentiment is on its way straight back atcha ☺
Firstly the butterfly folder is just so pretty, adorable in real life I love using it I really do.
Today's card makes a real statement it almost 'shows' off and why not, I too think it needs it's day here, it needs all the compliments it deserves, as for the photographer, you're not alone, I find wisteria so hard to show its true beauty but I think most of us know what a delicate shade it is but for the newer crafters don't be put off by the stills lol believe us all when we suggest adding it to your stash you won't be disappointed that's for sure 😉
Hope you are all prepared for a possible song and dance tomorrow Sue, and I look forward to seeing it lol.
Sending hugs as usual. Happy Friday xxx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, lovely card today, I am rubbish at photographing my cards but it doesn't matter. When I looked at this it reminded me of 2 different things, a giant embellishment that crafters consortium make (I think their name is) the one with the lovely gems all around it, or a wrought iron gate with a crest on it. Amazing what goes through your imagination isn't it, but I really do like it and it certainly does deserve it's day on the blog.

Looking forward to your Hochanda show tomorrow, you so inspire me and everyone who adore your work.

Pam I didn't go out in the storm, watched it through window and on the news, terrible. Now this morning it is a lovely blue sky.

Special hugs to everyone who needs them including the little babies who bring so much joy.

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

Sandra said...

Absolute Winner, love this card, it deserves a day all of its own, if only to give everyone a chance to study it carefully, so as to appreciate every element.
Thanks Sue for the inspiration.

Good morning Sue. Beautiful card, can definitely imagine the wisteria colour. Don't worry about your photography, at least you haven't got a finger in the picture which is something I usually manage to get in!
Pam, you've said everything perfectly, as usual, so I'm going to just echo your comments. Hugs to all. Sue xxx

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

Very pretty card this morning - I love the Starflower Cluster, it's so dainty and works so well as a surround for your focal point...I know what you mean about the Wisteria showing up as grey but I find it works well if I add some pink somewhere in the overall design - that seems to bring out the warmth in that shade...

Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow on Hochanda but why only the one show?...

Tressa said...

Very pretty card. I do like how you have used the starflower die In Such a different way; it just shows what a little imagination can achieve. Something I lack so keep the ideas coming!!!!!!

Just a thought! Would photographing under a white craft light only make any difference to getting the colour? I will have to try, I think I have some wisteria card in my stash.

CHERYL Brown said...

Morning Sue and fellow crafters,

A gorgeous card today Sue, wisteria is such a delicate colour and I can see it clearly. Jamie, No. 1 grandson, altered the colour pitch on my PC and now I can see shades that others can't so much better.

Typing this whilst listening to Herman & the Hermits from the sixties on YouTube.
Bright and cheerful music to start the day.

Well Doris missed us out here in my little corner of Somerset. Was quite windy all morning so washing out on the line and got it all dried to air off inside. Late afternoon the wind changed to very gusty, no damage done this morning upon opening the blinds so I think we got off quite lightly compared to other parts of the country. The poor lady in Wolverhampton's family must be devastated to lose her in such a violent manner. Condolences to any of the family that follow you Sue.

Gurt big hugs to all in need of one. I hope your day becomes kinder to you.

Love 7 hugs
Cheryl xxx

Diane Green said...

Hi Sue
What a beautiful card today, such pretty dies and of course a lovely coloured card. This colour is always sold out in the local craft shop so must be popular! Have you tried using a light wave to add light when you take photoes? They are a great piece of kit. Hope you have fun on the tv.

Hi Sue and everyone

A lovely card. I remember this one from the launch and agree it definitely should have its own day on the blog. I love the wisteria colour, but it does look grey on my screen, but I think it looks nice in grey too. Sometimes grey is so underrated I think and can look really classy.

Looking forward to your show on Hochanda Sue.

Hi Sue, the Starflower Cluster is a very pretty die and you have created a lovely card with it. I have some wisteria card, it is one of my favourites so I am able to imagine the true colours of your card. I have trouble photographing purple, it always comes out blue no matter what type of lighting I use so I don't blame the photographer, I blame the equipment!

Hello Sue,

What a pretty card this morning. Such a interesting way to use the Starflower Cluster, makes me wonder what a card would look like with the clusters facing the opposite direction and done with the Noble Circles. Might just have to try that myself. The Butterfly Embossing Folder is one of my favorites, it is both delicate and whimsical at the same time. Perfect combination.

Have a wonderful day.

Elaine H – The surgery went well and the Kid is doing fine. This is his nick name not only because he is the youngest in our office but we adopted him. His family is thousands of miles away. His mom tried to come here but she couldn’t get her visa. I cannot imagine what she went thru all these months and it’s not over yet. So, we became his second family. Hugs to you, too.
-
Laine – if you really didn’t comment on Wednesday just to give the rest of us a chance to win that beautiful card, all I can say is WOW! Then you are right, you are a kind person and you made me feel bad … no, let me rephrase it, you almost made me feel bad calling you a trouble maker. In the meantime, I did my homework by reading some old posts to figure out who the true Troublemaker Queen is! A difficult task I have to say, but Saba’s comment yesterday made it clear… dear Laine you won the title! It is what it is!
-
PP/Yvonne – feel better and come back. We miss you! We need you. It ‘s not easy to cope with Laine’s “kind, understanding and optimistic monologues”!

You are all special to me!

Hello Sue,
I'm a bit late today! It's been manic Friday again!
Today's card is beautiful. Why didn't I think of doing that??? I don't actually have that actual Die but I have the daisy one which I love ! It's hard photographing cards! Sometimes after I've taken a photo I think the whole card is skew whiff - that's not straight to those overseas!! Lol!
However , when I check the card is straight. - it's my photography!
Oh Sue, I got the Lattice Frame Die set which goes with the Shadow Box Sets and I've made my husband's birthday card this afternoon! The frame makes all the difference in the world! Buy them ladies/ gentlemen , you won't regret it! I know it's what is called a " considered purchase " but it's well worth it! One of the window boxes ( with the tulips) from the latest release fits in the Shadow box! I'm chuffed - can you tell! Oh and the topiary tree - either one- fits too! My husband loves our garden! Your Dies are amazing as are you because the fact that these fit isn't an accident!!
Carmen - so pleased you posted before me as I usually go back to see what you have said and then post on the wrong day!! Thank you for considering the Elderly!! Lol!
Scottydog! - you are right someone had real riled Doris! She wreaked havoc in our garden! I'm just thankful the trees are still standing!
Pam - thanks again for all you do!
I'm sure I've forgotten lots but I'm sorry if it's anything important!
Love to all lovely friends on the blog! Even the troublemakers PP and Lorraine!! Xx
Love Myra xxx

Love the starflower die. I now have one in my stash. very versatile.
Just wondering Sue, do you ever use the small center dies in a different color to accentuate the flowers and leaves??

Hi Sue,

I am very late in commenting on this card. I found it in my e-mail list, ready to be
deleted. How could this happen? I am glad that I found it, as soon as I saw it it is gorgeous Just my kind of card.

Love it !

Love Dorothy
