Good morning Sue. A very opulent card today, very Downton-esque!
It's a beautiful morning here, I've broken up for a week, so I'm going to make the most of it and clean the windows! Congratulations to P.Austen on your win. Hugs to all. Sue sxx

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. I'm sure looking forward to learning from the best, so will be off to watch you put this gilded magnificence together once I've clicked publish, although it looks so regal made in these colours I'd love to see how different it would look in bright Summer colours, I just think it's so magical how a change in colour, but replicating every single detail makes a card look so very different. Hope you've managed to grab some of this beautiful weather while it lasts Sue, that's if you're even still in the UK at present.
So I'll send my love n hugs your way before I click the video and congratulate P.Austen on her win, and that's my post complete till tomorrow xxx

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue,

Those building flakes are just stunning! And with diamonds on top, wow!
Not sure I like that central shape at all, but I do love how the black, copper and white really work well with the Antlia in reflecting the flakes.

Pat Austin, you lucky ducky! Congrats!

Best to the healing hubbies and the motivated ones.

Love to you sweet, sweet, dearie hearts for your kind words and hugs.

Three days off in a row! I made it! And no gatherings to attend! Yippee!

Love,
Donita

Jennie - The Crafty Wife said...

Wow! How striking is the centre piece and loving the lace effect too!

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, love the design of this card but despite the gorgeous gilding flakes and glitter it still seems a bit too dark for me. One or two shots on the video did show it seeming to be brighter so I am sure that it is beautiful IRL. Love the chrysanthemum tipped with the bronze distress stain.

Pat L - Congratulations on winning first prize for your floral display. Hope you get your husband home over the week-end and that he is ok.
Doreen - has your new grandson arrived yet? If so, I hope he and mum are both ok.
Maureen - wow, what a choice of aids you have, spoilt or what!
Donita - enjoy your long week-end and when you return to work next week it will be the start of a new, and hopefully happier, chapter in your life.
P Austen - Congratulations on being this week's Wednesday Winner, enjoy your lovely card.

CraftyJo said...

Hmm, not sure about the overall appearance - a bit dark for me. I'll watch the video and see how it's all done though, thank you for that.

Tressa said...

Lovely elegant card.

I love stamping with gilding flakes as the effects are so great, especially on black card as you have shown. And, even better, you have used my second favourite (I use my favourite - Calypso - quite sparingly). I have a birthday card to make soon and this is going to make me rethink my original plan but using another matching stamp/die combo in my collection. It is good to see old techniques being reintroduced.

hettygarlick said...

That's just gorgeous. I love stamping with the gilding flakes. It gives such a wonderful effect and yet it's not really difficult.

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
It's an exquisite card. I must take a leaf out of Hetty's book and try stamping with gilding flakes..............
Calypso is also my favourite colour in those flakes...
I really appreciate you doing all those videos for us, it makes it much easier for us.
Thank you.
Hugs, Rose

Yorks butterfly said...

Hi Sue, another great card and video. I don't very often stamp with gilding flakes but will have to try more often as they do add another dimension to a card.

Hello Sue,
I wasn't sure about today's card until I watched the video! I thought it was rather dark but on watching the video have completely changed my mind! There are some lovely bright colours in the gilding flakes. Really love the EF and the stamp! Thank you once again!
Pat L - Congratulations on winning 1st Prize - well done you! Hope your husband gets home asap!
Doreen - CraftyCruiser - many congratulations on the safe arrival of your grandson. Good to know Mum and Baby are home and doing well.
Norah - hope Harry has a lovely Birthday! He has a lovely Grandma!
Maria - Happy birthday to you!! Hope you have a lovely day and are spoiled a little! x
Have a lovely Bank Holiday Weekend everyone! Hope it doesn't rain on your barbecue!
Love Myra xx

A lovely, shinny and gilded card today. Thank you for the helpful and inspiring video. I love to watch you work. You amaze me with how little "mess" you make while working on your cards. I get "mess" all over my desk, the floor and me when I work on my cards!

Maureen Killen said...

Hello Sue,
This is fabulous, gorgeous and I love it.
Pam as usual you have summed everything up. I hope you are feeling bright today away from the place that shall remain nameless. The physio tried to get me to work hard, but gave up at the finish lol. I now have more exercises to do than Arnie on the set of the Terminator!!!
Elaine, I forgot to mention that I also have a wheelchair and toilet seat ha ha. Sometimes I give a little too much information!!! I've been to the garden centre today with my daughter and used the Wheelie with great dexterity. The Cresta Run will prove no obstacle to us ha ha.
Maria pet, Happy, happy birthday - I hope you are spoilt a lot, unlike Myra who only wishes you to be spoilt a little!!!
Norah, happy birthday to the little Tinker. Have a lovely day but don't tire yourself out.
Doreen R - congratulations on the birth of your Grandson, what is his name?
Pat L - I don't need all these aids, I just like to amass as many as possible so that people think I'm ill and they look good scattered around the house. That way everyone is so busy looking at them, they don't see the dust and crumbs ha ha. (George doesn't see the dust or the crumbs either!!!)
Congratulations to P Austin on winning a beautiful card.
love to all who are poorly or lonely, and their carers.
Maureen xxxx

Nice card, Sue, think it's one that will look better in the flesh as it's so much brighter in the video than the stills. Gilding flakes are the one 'messy' that holds no fears for me - love them! Thanks as ever for the video.
Doreen - congrats on the safe arrival.
Pat L - well done in the floral competition, pleased Mr L has had his twofer op and doing well.
Maria - have a lovely day - Happy Birthday!!!!
P Austen - lucky lady, enjoy your card.
Hugs to all. Extra for Donita. Like Pam, missing the banter... Laine and PP.

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. I love the way you have made this card, I have just watched the video. For me, the best bit (and probably the easiest bit)is what you have done to extend the gemini die. Love the colours.

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

Opulence and elegance describe this card the best. Gilding flakes add such a regal look to whatever you are using it on and it's done so easily. Although I have to admit that I have not tried stamping with them using the flake and glitter glue - that's something I must try. As always, you video is so informative with all of your hints and tips. I always love to see a new video.

Congratulations to P Austen for being the lucky card winner.

To those of you who celebrate Memorial Day, have a wonderful and safe holiday. To the rest of you, have a wonderful weekend.

Hello Sue
Although nice this is not one of my favourite cards I am not sure why I hope you are having a lovely weekend wherever you are.Just a quick post today I am exhausted it appears I haven't had a bug but a big flare up of my rheumatoid arthritis.

liz spooner said...

This is card is gorgeous in its design and colours.xx

P Austen said...

Love using gliding flakes even if I have more on my nails than what should be on the card. Will have to warch the video later as I've been busy stripping wallpaper off the spare bedroom. So, imagine my surprise when I read your blog saying that I had won the Wednesday giveaway card. I still cant belueve it.
Thank you everyone for your kind wishes. It will be treasured.
Hope you're all having a great bank holiday.
My husband has rheumatoid arthritis but has had very little pain since being givenan infusion every 2 months. It has worked wonders.
Hugs xxx P Austen (Pauline)
