Just For You

Hi crafters!  Today's card is a nice unisex card that can be used for many an occasion.  I started with a piece of sky blue card.  Using the outer decorative die from the Timeless Striplet, I cut a design down the centre of the card, then flipped the die to cut the design across the centre of the card.  I backed it with white card and added small white pearls to the centre design.  I cut four of the Pacific Ocean corners in white and backed them with black card and added them with foam to raise them.  For the focal element, I cut the Pacific Ocean tag in white and backed it in black.  I added it to the centre of the card with foam.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the smaller oval from the tag set and used the larger oval to cut a sky blue mat for the sentiment.  I added the sentiment to the centre tag and completed the card with white, blue and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  7" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Thank you a great card.
Take care and have fun Kitty.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. Oooo I like this. It's so clever how you are designing your striplet collection to become border patterns too. I'm not sure if I've described that right but hopefully you'll know what I'm trying to say, the cut and flip, I'd probably cut and flop as I'm useless at doing things like this, but it gives the base of the card so much interest. How I love starting my day with beautiful cards and I know just where to find them ☺
So I'll end with my usual hug and thank you for my early smile and hope you have a lovely day xxx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, oh gosh what a cracker today, love it to bits, am certainly going to have a go at this one, easily a male or female card.

Pam, hope you are enjoying your holiday, have missed you in the top spot, what a shame about the champagne and your trousers, well you can say that you have now been christened for a second time,, that poor waitress I bet she was mortified. xx

Lynne, I know you are having a wonderful time with your daughter and family, these are always special times to treasure.

Patricia, would you do a flower making tutorial as Pam said, that would be so nice to share.

Elaine I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of Helen's lovely Mum, my thoughts are with all your family at this time.

PP hope your journey to IOW was a great experience, enjoy your time there.

Special hugs to everyone who needs them. Only 6 more days to the start of AP, hope to be going and seeing you there.

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

Scottydog said...

I love the way you are using the outer edge of these triplets to make such lovely designs as backgrounds for your cards. Unfortunately none of my striplet have decorative edges! However next time I buy a striplet I will be looking not just at the pattern it gives me in the centre but also the edging pattern. You are so clever Sue! Thank you! By the way love the card as you say unisex.

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Crew,

Sometimes I'm agog and read the recipe to see how you performed the miracle. Sometimes I find myself trying to redesign to solve whatever is bothering me. On this one, the corners seem too far apart and too heavy for the spindly striplet edge. I would either use the body of the striplet for a stronger line, or trim one third from the vertical striplet, bringing the corners closer together for one of the dimensions anyway. Looks like the tag will still fit inside the closer corners. Love those corners and that tag, btw. They really do coordinate with each other and especially with the Tahiti set.
Condolences to Helen's family.
Enjoyed cutting flowers this weekend. I laid out all my flower dies on wide clear tape arranged as one piece the size of my cutting plates. Put down a layer of wax paper, a half sheet of vellum and a half sheet of card stock. Got all my flowers on two of those. So during commercials, I cut both arrays of flowers on the machine, then brought them into the living room to free them from the dies during the show. Then back to the cutting room to cut some more. The commercials are so much less annoying if you miss them completely!
So far I have ziploc baggies full of white, two yellows, two pinks and two purples, mixed in with equal parts vellum. Probably need more white. And the pearl colors of card stock.
Another wonderful thing about Sue Wilson dies is they have uniform thickness, so you can load pieces from different sets, as well as the biggest die with the smallest, and they'll all cut on the same pass through the machine.
Later Monday I'm going to the eye doctor, so I took a vacation day since I won't be able to read after they dilate my pupils. Hoping to visit the printers supply store for reams of card stock, boxes of envelopes and more colors of pearlized card stock and paper. I hope they have mirror card.
It used to be that when we were earning money, we couldn't get to a store during business hours to spend it. Now we can go broke at all hours of the day and night, shopping online.
Have a jolly or solemn day, as conditions warrant.

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

What an inspiring card and made from what we would think of as merely "additions" to a main design concept and I love how versatile your striplets are becoming from the original 2 part die sets...they're wonderful value for our hard-earned pennies...

Elaine - sad to read your news about Helen's Mum.

"Small White Pearls" To The Centre Of Your Design, Sue, You Cut Out Four Luxurious "Pacific Ocean Corners"
In "Coconut White Card" Backing Them With "Black Card" To Make Them "POP" You Added "Mounting Foam" For
Dimension Also Adding "White Pearls" You Placed Them Onto The "Sky Blue Background" That You Had Created.

A beautiful card to start the working week! I like it for many reasons. I ove it's elegant simplicity, the fact that it would post easily, would be suitable for male or female , looks difficult but isn't really!! I really like it and I'm very fond of that Die. Love the corners too.
Thank you once again!
June - thank you for your round-up of blog news! You are pretty good at that too! x
Carmen - making flowers - much better than Channel hopping in Commercial Breaks! Trouble is my husband is unlikely to give it a try!!

Saba said...

Hello Sue,
Yet another card which demonstrates beautifully just how versatile one of your dies can be. It would never have occurred to me to use the Timeless striplet in this way, so clever. The Pacific Ocean corners fill in the gaps as if they were made for this design and the matching tag just finishes the whole effect off beautifully. A lovely card Sue. Thank you.

Elaine you are in my thoughts and prayers at this sad time, Helen's mum is at peace now. Sending comforting hugs to you all.
Deputy June you've done a spiffing job, thank you for taking the time.
Carmen belated Congratulations on Canada's achievements. Being a Yorkshire lass I know what national pride is like!
Littlelamb or should we now calmly you Nanny Proud? Well done to all three of your talented grandchildren.
Pam enjoy seeing your family this evening. Don't forget to set your alarm for the morning though.
Patricia sounds like a flower making retreat run by you is on the cards. You'll need to get Hazel onto it, she's a star at organising and arranging our get togethers.

Anonymous said...

Hi Sue,

I feel like you made this card special for me. When you presented the Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway (the aqua card where you used the outer die from the Lotus Striplet to cut a decorative back ground into it) I was wondering if we can make a similar background with a different die from your Striplets collection. Yes, we can. You proved today with this beautiful card. I have the Timeless Striplet die. I will try it later but I won’t mind if I can have your card. The sky-blue color is so soft and the black makes everything to pop up. I love it.

Elaine – So sorry to hear about Helen's mum. My thoughts are with Helen at this time. Sending my daily hugs to all of you.
Pam – Enjoy the rest of your vacation!
Myra – Donita is the one making flowers, I am the one spending money shopping online BUT … I bought only Sue’s dies, nothing else. I am very disappointed my order didn’t come yet.
Donita – Well done. I should follow your example. Hope your doctor appointment went as planned. Take care.
Maria – If you find a way to reduce the book to a list please let me know. Wouldn’t be great to have a sponsor?!
Laine – Hope you are alright.

Have a great Tuesday everyone,
Still a newbie to Craft / Not longer the newest and the only Canadian Wilsonette

What's not to love about this card. I think the Pacific Ocean is my favorite release. I just watched the new video with the port hole card. I bought this set as soon as it came out and was pleased to see I had all the pieces for this card. Love the hinge.
Have a wonderful Tuesday,
