Ornamental Accents

Good Sunday morning all!  I don't usually do cards without some sort of sentiment, but this one was just so pretty, I didn't feel that it really needed one!  I started by cutting the decorative die from the Atlas Striplet into a piece of coconut white card.  I added mounting foam to the back and seated the piece over a piece of blush card.  Next I selected the Ornamental Accents die set and cut five of the wider die using both the decorative die and the outer cutting edge.  I displayed them in a fan shape and glued them together at the bottom.   I cut several of the Orange Blossom Leaves out of white card then inked the veins through the die with Forest Moss.  I removed them from the die and inked the rest of the leaves with Peeled Paint.  I cut several of the Exquisite Poppy die to create one flower.  I used a thin black marker through the die to add veins.  I inked the edges with Spun Sugar after removing them from the die, then assembled them.  I tied a bow with black jute then added the flower to it and glued it in the centre of the leaves at the bottom of the fan.  I completed the card with a simple white on white mat.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  7" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Lovely card Sue, it's gorgeous. Love that flower.
Maureen, so glad you are home and why shouldn't you be mentioned in dispatches, taking a tumble in Northumberland Street deserves mention. 3 cheers for Sainsburys and Primark, the "posh" shops would have asked you to stop blocking their doorways. I hated my Zimmer Frame when I had my ankle op, I didn't feel safe with it. Rest and take care.
Rosemarie, thank you for mail, did you get my reply, hope so.
Elaine, so good that we finally got through to each other. Hugs to you and Andrew and Helen.
Laine, I couldn't leave you and your poorly Mum out now could I. Hope you are both feeling better.
Sharon, hugs for you and fingers crossed that all goes well with the scan, it's a long time to wait and worry.
CreweTrish, hope your brother is going to be alright, that was a very long day, you both must have been exhausted.
CraftySueToo, how is your mum, is she home yet?
Well the saga goes on, drove over to the other pharmacy yesterday and it's closed on a Saturday so no antibiotics till Monday, not a happy bunny.
Hugs to all, take care, especially our poorly and missing friends.

Lovely card Sue, always useful to have cards with no sentiment, for the unexpected.

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

Your card today is "sheer elegance." I'm not seeing the blush card on my computer screen but the white on white is stunning with just a little color from the flower and leaves.A beautiful creation. It's nice seeing some of the older dies.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

Kitty Davies said...

Morning Sue.
Thank you so much a lovely card.
We don't always need a sentiment sometimes you send a card "just because".
Take care Kitty.

Lyn Cleasby said...

Lovely card, Sue. A sentiment really would spoil the effect. The blush card doesn't show up very well but the overall effect is very pretty.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, such a very pretty card, love the striplet and the way you have done the leaves, very effective.

Pam what a fiasco you are having with the prescription, that will now be 3 days without the medication all because a silly person sent the prescription to the wrong place, special hugs to you. I also reiterate everything you have said above, your so good to us.

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

Denise Bryant said...

Elegant card! Love the flower and leaves!

Craftynetty said...

A lovely card and, without a sentiment, suitable for so many occasions. Thank you

Jennie - The Crafty Wife said...

A lovely 'just because' card today. Sometimes we need them just to let people know we care.

Anonymous said...

Hi Sue,

What a beautiful card this morning. It is suitable for many occasions and shows how versatile your dies are. You can use your striplets in so many ways adding so pretty details to a card! Thanks for another daily dose of inspiration. It’s a must try!

Have a great Sunday ladies!
Still a newbie to Craft / not longer the newest, or the only Canadian Wilsonette

Hazel said...

Good morning Sue. Just my kind of card, it's stunning and versatile.

It's great having our Maureen back. Yes why not be mentioned in dispatches, she I think brought the street to a stand still. Ha. Ha. Royality now oh dear we are going to have to raise our standards even more for the meet ups. A castle to stay in next I think? No red silk ballooon either she will be needing a Rolls Royce! We would do anything to have her with us this week.
Pam, that is not good reference your prescription! Someone's head will roll I fear. Just rest and keep warm in the mean time.
Have a good day what ever you are doing.
Hazel x

Dawn Searle said...

Good morning Sue,
A stunning card this morning, I really love how you have inked through the die to how the veins on the leaves. The fan effect is fabulous, will have to try this. I too can't pick up the blush colour on my iPad screen, but it is beautiful nonetheless, thank you.
Hugs xx

Happy Sunday Sue. A beautiful ray of sunshine is radiating out of this beautiful sample to go with a bright sunny morning. Who needs words with this beauty, the recipient would be lost for words too. I see a Beverly Beauty rising from this work of art. Off to market in just over an hour so better get a shimmy on. Have a nice Sunday Sue, sending love n hugs as usual xxx

Dragonsnap2 said...

Gorgeous, elegant card today and a greeting would spoil it completely. As others have said it's always handy to have a few cards without greetings for emergencies too. My friend couldn't believe that the dies she was looking at in my stash made such a beautiful fan but she is now a convert.
Thinking of all missing and ill friends. Crafty hugs to all and an extra one to Pam. Stay warm.

Good morning Sue,
Oh! WOWSER!!! I just LOVE todays "work of art" right up my street.
I love all your cards, and do use lots of your ideas.
I might be stuck in my ways but today's card is the kind of card I love to be making.
As Hazel says we will really miss our Maureen next week.
Hazel is the one who finds the fantastic Hotels we use .... her next task will be looking for that Castle for our October Meet Up!!
Pam as always I echo your brilliant summary .... what would we do without you!! Fine for a few days others do a great job but we do expect to see your comment on top in the morning.

sharon casey said...

Morning Sue and all the Wilsonettes
Lovely card this morning i definately want to do some design like that with the fan its so eye catching and I agree it doesn't need a sentiment on it.

Pam what a pain having o go over and there shut, hope you get them ok on Monday and you start to feel better soon, thank you yes it is a long time to wait but that's the norm these days with the hospitals isn't it, I do try and keep positive but it does get to me some days since my op in October its just been one thing after another so really want to get back to normal (well as near as i can lol).
Reading all the lovely messages its so nice to see some of our International friends on here it brings us all closer, I love this blog everyone is so nice friendly and caring about one another.

Love and healing hugs to all who need them and who are poorly

Have a good day everyone

Donita Naylor said...


(That's short for hi, all you guys) (Not sure if it's regional from one of the places I grew up in or just me.).

My favorite part is the fan. Appealing in every way. But if I did only things I like best, all my cards would look the same, with the same flowers and foliage, only in different colors. So I appreciate the variety. But I might not do this.

Today the stamping group got together for about 8 hours of laughing, making, talking, eating and admiring. Usually, some of us bring the ingredients for a card that we can teach. I brought the Posh Door and we Distress Inked the stone work with a Tim Holtz stencil. We made some cards that, when you pull on the insert, the focal element pops up and the sentiment slides into the window so you can read it. The newest among us brought one that she said was easy, but it wasn't. We suddenly realized she may be a genius in spatial intelligence. If you can imagine a wedge of card stock folded into a Z, and a matching but opposite wedge folded into a Z and slits cut into both wedges, down from the top of one and up from the bottom of the other, then the slits matched up so it makes like a box baffle. I think we were supposed to decorate that, but I got in a frenzy of cutting butterflies for everyone with the Cascading Butterflies and some great card stock printed with a watercolor effect that the Box Baffle Girl brought. And I'm not exaggerating how much we were baffled. I undertook cutting the butterflies because I needed a copper doorknob to match my copper topiary pots, and I could see the large middle butterfly gives doorknob fallout pieces like the Atlantic Background does, only they're easier to cut and collect.

BTW, has anyone tried making fruit by cutting the door's half-circle window in white and backing it with lemon, orange or lime? You get half slices of citrus. I'm picturing it but haven't done it. Not sure what I'd do with them.

Big day after an exhausting week. Finally, time to rest!


PS, the North American distributor finally got their shipment of dies from the April release. Whew! Thought I was going to miss out!

Sarah Wrightson said...

Morning Sue, a stunning card - love it xx

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

Amazing what you can do with a couple of dies, a flower and some scraps from your ribbon box!...and you're right this doesn't really need a sentiment, it's lovely as is...


Anonymous said...

Love this card, Sue, quite unusual - fan shape really makes it. Don't always need a sentiment, more often than not don't put one on as the design looks better without it.
Pam, oh my still no antibiotics - fingers crossed for tomorrow. Echoing you again, thank you.
Hugs to all - happy Sunday.

Hello Sue.

Lovely Card. I think this has a very natural look to it. I really like the fanned Ornamental Accents die cuts and the pretty floral decoration. Thanks for sharing.

Best wishes

WOW! I have to agree that this needs no sentiment to make it more beautiful! I think ,
Letting the die cutting speak for itself is the perfect way to go! Absolutely breathtaking and perfect in my book! TFS!

This card is so very pretty. I didn't even notice that there wasn't a sentiment until I read your description.

Hi Sue

Nice to see the splash of colour just for a change. Like you, I usually do a sentiment and get a bit flumoxed as to what to do if one just doesn't seem to fit.
