Just For You

Hi crafters!  This is another one of my personal favourite cards.  I just love the silver and dusty rose colour combo.  I started by putting together a background of just silver shine card with a mat of vintage silver card.  I cut a wide strip of coconut white card and matted it with vintage silver card and added foam to raise it. I cut the Sumatra die in white to use as the centre of the focal element.  Next,  I cut the Rose Oval twice in dusty rose card and once in silver shine card. I tucked the sides of the Sumatra die into the centres of the Rose Ovals on either side then cut the silver one in half and added the ends of it behind, but just peeking out of the pink Rose Ovals.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the oval centre from the Indonesian tags.  I cut another in dusty rose and cut it in half to use as a shadow.  I seated the sentiment on the actual tag shape cut out of Vintage Silver card.  I added flatback pearls as accents, then finished with matching mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Gorgeous card Sue, delightful.
Theresa, hope you had a wonderful birthday. Did you get lots of crafty goodies.
June, how did Johns workshop go, hope you had a fab time.
Maria, it is lovely to hear that you and Sharon had a great meet up, firm friends now I am sure.
Muriel, have a wonderful US holiday, most of all have fun.
Elaine, how did the Barbie go, hope you all had a wonderful time and the birthday couple too. Liked your idea of putting all the Christmas dies and stamps in one box or was that a crate.
Donita, I see you live in New England, such a beautiful part of the states. My brother lives in New Hampshire, also very beautiful. I have spent many a lovely holiday there especially in the Fall.
Well I have had 2 chill out days, doing very little but must get going today got 4 special cards to make, craft room to tidy, and I want to sort my drive and patio out. Then again I might not .
Daily hugs to all, have a great day. Thinking of our poorly and missing friends, Yvonne, Laine, Norah, Wheeley and many more, miss you all.

Hello Sue, this card is gorgeous, love the lacy dies, and the way you have used them to hold the focal element. The Dusky pink card is such a pretty shade. Have a great day all. Bx

Good morning Sue. Lovely card, I too like the silver and dusky rose colour combo. Hugs to all. Sue xxx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, wow this is a lovely card, and a great colour combinations too.

Pam I reiterate all you have said today, but be careful if you are doing the patio and drive, you don't want to over do it and make yourself ill, I will stick to crafting if it was me. Well the workshop was absolutely brilliant, I can honestly say it was one of the best ones I have ever been to, John is such a talented person and so knowledgeable, he is so friendly with everyone and most of all I learnt so many new techniques with stamping and also using the pixie powders and kitchen roll and glitter, I was so pleased with the 3 creations I made. Mind you I was so knackered when I got home I went to bed at 8pm and apart from waking up for about 20 minutes in the night I then slept until 6am this morning, I think the 3 full days of crafting had taken their toll. I did manage to have a quick word with our birthday girl Theresa yesterday which was lovely too.

Today I have got to prepare the instructions for my Wednesday craft group, so enjoy your day everyone.

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

I would love to see this in the flesh as it looks quite grey on my screen Very pretty layout

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Wilsonettes,

Patricia and P Austen have my vote, to do this in white or whites and silvers. I'm concluding that for me, two thirds pink is too much, unless the pinks are subtle.

Happy Belated Theresa!

Pam, everyone in Rhode Island goes to New Hampshire for vacation, and vice versa. Traffic jams both waupys on Friday and Sunday. Also everyone in Connecticut comes to Rhode Island beaches, but Rhode Islanders don't believe thEre's any such thing as Connecticut, except as a long delay in getting to New York City.

Rosemary Powell, sending you love and encouragement. Depression moves in with a mind of its own, and sometimes you have to call on outside forces to back it down again. My meds were increased this spring when I started to go under. You had good news from your checkup, but a long scare before the good news. That could have upset your balance. Be kind with yourself. Use your efforts to eat regularly, sleep enough, and take at least a little walk every day.

Best to you and everyone who needs a little kindness today.

Very unusual matting on this card. Different. I like it. The rose die is so delicate and ovals are always useful. That Sumatra die keeps popping up...another favorite.
Have a great day. Our good weather is holding.

Sam Smithard said...

To My Wonderful Dear Friend Sue,
Well Sue I Love Today's Outstanding Card I Love The Fabulous Colour Palette
I'm Thrilled You Used The Vintage Silver Card Rather Than Mirror Card Lol!
I Personally Believe The Vintage Silver Is More Sophisticated, Rich, Opulent.
Products Used In Today's Card:-
"Creative Expression Coconut White/Dusty Rose/Vintage Silver/Silver Shine Foundation Card"
"Creative Expression Mounting Foam"
"Creative Expression Cosmic Shimmer Specialists Dries Clear Acrylic Glue"
"Creative Expression White Self Adhesive Flat Backed Pearls"
"Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink Pad"
"Creative Expression Just For You Sentiment"
Star's In Today's Card:-
"Sue Wilson's Sumatra Cutting Dies From The Indonesian Collection"
"Sue Wilson's Indonesian Tag Cutting Dies From The Indonesian Collection"
"Sue Wilson's Rose Oval Cutting Dies From The Frames/Tags Collection"
Sue, You Started By Putting Together Your Exceptional Card By Having A Background Of Silver Shine Card, With
A Mat Of The Vintage Silver Card,Then You Cut Out A Wide Strip Of Coconut White Card You Matted This With
The Vintage Silver Card, You Added Mounting Foam To The Back For Dimension.
Sue, You Then Placed This Onto The Centre Of Your Background, You Then Cut Out The Sumatra Die, Out Of
Coconut White Card, To Use As Your Focal Element, Next You Cut Out The Rose Oval Die Twice In
The Dusty Rose Card Then Again In Silver Shine Card.
You Tucked The Sides Of The Sumatra Die Into The Centres Of The Rose Ovals (Like Holding Hands)
You Did This On Either Side Of The Sumatra Die, You Then Cut The Silver One In Half Adding The Ends
Of It Behind Just Peeking Out Of The Rose Ovals. Sue, You Then Stamped The Sentiment "Just For You"
You Cut It Out Using The Oval Centre Die From The Indonesian Tags You Cut Another In The Dusty Rose
Cut It In Half To Use As A Shadow, You Seated The Sentiment On The Actual Tag Shape Which You Cut
Out Of Vintage Silver Card, You Added White Flat Backed As Accents, You Then Placed Mounting Foam
On Your Background Which You Attached To Your Coconut White Famous/Signature/Piercing Then Using
Acrylic Glue You Attached To Your Final Mat/Layer Of Dusty Rose/Silver/Coconut White.................
Sue, A First Class Extravagant Card I Really Must Purchase The Rose Oval Cutting Die Its Extremely Pretty
Thank You So Very Much For Sharing Today's Extremely Exquisite Card, Thank You For The Daily Inspiration
I For One Truly Appreciate Everything You Do.
Sue, Take Great Care
Wonderful Warm Fond Wishes To Colin Also Heather
Sue, Lots Of Love Also Huge Hugs 🤗
Love From Sam xxx
(Joan I'm Really Pleased You Enjoyed The Workshop With John Lockwood, I Just Hope He Hasn't Forgotten
That If It Wasn't For Sue Plus Being Able To Use All The Tremendous Products From Creative Expression For Example
Pixie Powders Etc He Would Not Be Where He Is Today, Sue Brought Him To Our Television Screens
This Is Just My Opinion)

Sue MacFall said...

Thanks, Sue for another lovely card - great colours too.

Suzzette Yandle said...

Oh, such a lovely design. Your Rose Oval die is beautiful and cuts out so easily. I made a card using this Rose Oval die set and layered behind it the pierced outside part of your Geneva die. I placed flatbacked pearls all around the tiny flowers framing the Rose Oval.
The Rose Oval die and the Geneva die were a perfect match. The recipient of my card said it was the prettiest card she had ever received.

Scottydog said...

Very pretty girlie card today. Love that combination of dies, they work so well together. Thanks Sue!

sued99 said...

What a lovely combination of dies and colours. X

Judy Hollers said...

The Rose Oval is one of my very favorite dies because it is gorgeous and fits an A2 card! Thank you for designing dies for smaller cards!

Good afternoon Sue and everyone
I love the dusky pink colour and I like your colour combo too it's a very pretty card
Thank you for the Belated birthday wishes Donita and Pam I was treated to a meal out with my hubby and a friend and her husband and my friend would not let us pay a penny. Went back to her home and she had me tidying her craft room lol.
....Got to admit I enjoyed it... Don't you enjoy looking through other people's stash lol
As for crafty goodies my hubby has no idea what to get me so he gave me £100 to spend on whatever I want
Our Wilsonett June sent me a crafting voucher I chatted to her yesterday and today she had a great time at Johns workshop
I have to admit and apologise to her for ringing her in the middle of the workshop I forgot she was going .....oops ....Bless her she answered it too
Well I have managed to finish the special card I think it looks ok
Hugs to all that may need one
Take care everyone

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. I completely understand why this is one of your personal favourites, the colours work so well together. If this really were a card, the recipient certainly wouldn't feel as if they had been short changed, there are so many scrummy layers.

Hi Sue. Oooooh this is a beautiful card today !!! I do love your colour combo of the Dusky Rose and silver with a touch of coconut white. Your Rose oval is a very pretty lace - like floral die.

Thank you for sharing this really beautiful card. x x x

Also I would like to say how gorgeous I think yesterday's card is to !!! I really love your colour combo with this one and your Indonesian background die is soooo beautiful !!!! I love the other dies you have used from this collection to but the entire background die set works so well even just on its own !!! Fab little Sweet William flowers you have used as a perfect finishing touch to. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous card. Sending lots of love to you Sue from Tres x x x
