Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

Hello there my crafty friends!  Today's Wednesday Card Giveaway was actually made using some leftover bits from previous cards, but I love the way it came out!  I started by embossing a piece of coconut white card with the Brambled Rose embossing folder to give the background some texture.  Next I used the two smaller sides of the Atlantic Ocean Background from a previously made card where I had cut them and extended them (waste not, want not!) LOL  I taped them together and backed them with black card.  I added a thin teal card mat before adding mounting foam to the back to raise it and attach it to the background.  I cut the centre of the Gemma die in black and backed it in teal and attached it horizontally in the centre of the card.  I cut the Mia die and snipped away the ends, leaving only the centre section.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with a circle, adding a black mat and attaching it in the centre of the card.  I cut the Cascading Butterfly die in teal and added three butterflies to the card.  A floral element was added to the left using the solid flowers from the Striped Nasturtium dies.  I spritzed them with water and scrunched them and tipped the edges with Peacock Feathers  Distress ink.  I seated the two flowers on a black satin bow and accented with Family Tree branches. White, black and teal mats were added to complete the card.   The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x 9 1/4" in size.   Leave a comment if you would like to be entered into the drawing to win this one.  All for now, Sue x

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. Oh my word I actually recognise those left over bits and how brilliant that they all played nicely to make such a gorgeous gift. Sue, I have an A4 cello bag, an A5 & 6 cello bags plus a small box of 'left overs' and yes I sometimes use them but wow, I get nothing like this as an end result and never will. Remember that folder you had through the post last week, well I couldn't resist, so I'm hoping the rose and jasmin plus a couple of packs of card will come through my post box today, it's going to be a bit difficult to hide though lol. Don't worry Sue, I'll take the blame this time lol.
sending you love n Wednesday hugs xxx

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. Sorry, I forgot to wish you a happy 4th July yesterday. This card shows us how to use up all those left over bits and I am sure if you didn't know what the original die looked like, you would never guess that this was how you made the card. What a good idea.


hettygarlick said...

That's gorgeous Sue. Such a very pretty card. Love the colours. x

GM Sue. Great card. Love the colour.

dorothy cattanach said...

Good Morning Sue and everyone.
A lovely card Sue as always. Your imagination has no boundsmonly you can make a card from left overs and produce a stunner of a card.
I don't yet have this background but I have the Atlantc Ocean Bermuda, and you have given me the idea of cutting it to extend this to make it a background too. So, many thanks for giving me the inspiration to do this.
For some reason I have not been able to get onto this page the last few days to make a comment on the daily blog cards! I was feeling very frustrated as you can imagine.
Bless you Sue.
Have a good day all.

Hi Sue, Lovely card and colours. love Jean Z xxxx

Donita Naylor said...

Hello Sue and Wilsonettes,

Nice to know that peacock feathers is the distress name for teal.

Had a quiet 4th. Forgot it was my cat and my sixth anniversary. FB reminded me. We were both so young then. Both of us could now stand to lose a few. Ounces in his case, pounds in mine.

Laine it was my experience after a seizure that I never had another migraine. Don't know how the neurologist knew, but he said it would happen and he was right. Hope it's the same for you.


SueJ said...

Whoever wins this will be very lucky indeed.
The card is gorgeous Sue and I love the black and teal together.
Good luck everyone.

val jones said...

Beautiful card as a prize this week Sue.
Great colours and love the addition of the butterflies.
Love Val in Spain xxx

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a really lovely card and if I could make such a beauty with left-overs then I would create more! Teal/Peacock Feathers is one of my favourite colours and I love the way you have used it here and the embossing folder is gorgeous.

Rosemary - fingers crossed all goes well for you today.
Laine & PP - hoping you are both better very soon.
Pat L - hope hubby is a quick healer :-)


Maureen Killen said...

Hello Sue,
May I just say that there are leftovers, and then there are my leftovers ha ha. This is brilliant and I love it.
Pam, have you received your inhaler yet?
Pat L, didn't realise Mr L's leg was so bad. My nephew came of his motor bike last month and nearly lost his leg as well as breaking loads of other bones. He's like Mr L, crutches, no weight bearing, and doesn't know how long it's going to take. I reckon you'll be in a Matron's outfit by the end of this. xx
Rosemary, I hope it's not too bad for you.
Laine, I hope you pick up soon.
PP, Come on pet, Laine and the others are missing you.
CraftySueToo, put a smile on your face, they'll wonder what's up!!!
Love to all
Maureen xx

Marie said...

Good morning Sue and all.
Today's card is so beautiful and someone is sure going to be happy to win it. Yesterday my younger Daughter took me out to Inspirations to spend my gift cards from Christmas and Birthday. I had over £100 to spend and was foolish enough to think that would be enough LOL.I doubled the amount and bought 2 Dies from the Atlantic collection,2 dies from the stained glass collection,2 striplets and the Chrysanthemum. I also mistakenly bought a Groovi parchment embossing plate which I thought was an ordinary embossing folder. I may not be taken to Inspirations for another year so I'm probably stuck with it.
I may not be commenting every day for the next 2 weeks as my elder Daughter is coming from Wisconsin tomorrow. Greetings to all. Marie

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
As has been said by others before me " I wish I could create something so lovely with left overs!" Yes, I do keep them but they always seem to be in the wrong shape or colour! I must try harder! Nobody would ever know you had made the card from leftovers. It's beautiful! I particularly like the flowers, leaves and bow! Like the addition of teal too!
Pat L - as so often happens Maureen has stolen my line! I was going to say that you will be a Sister or even Matron by the end of this Nursing stint! Your poor husband must be fed up as well as in discomfort if not pain! Hope he gets well sooner than they think!
Marie - you have had a spending spree! I do hope you enjoy using your new goodies!
Rosemary - thinking of you today. Hope all goes well. Never mind the hair that stuff will wash out - but you may need a shampoo designed to get products out of your hair not just an ordinary one!
Karen M - hope all goes well today!
Love to all, Myra ( Friend of Maureen!!) xx

Beautiful card Sue and who would know it was made from bits. I don't seem to have the right bits to make a card except for lots of squares where I have gutted the card. They are useful. Great idea Sue and a lovely freebie card. Thank you. Hope the inhaler helps Pam and echoing all your comments.

You spoiled us again. What a beautiful card! Nobody would ever know you had made the card from leftovers. I love it, like everybody else and I wish to be the winner, and I am not the only one.
Good luck all!

Pam – If you are not convinced it is asthma, maybe you should ask for a second opinion before using the steroid inhaler.
Rosemary - Thinking of you today.
Karen – Hope everything went all right for your hubby.
Laine & PP – Get well and came back.
Maria – Welcome back. Glad you enjoyed your vacation.
Elaine – We miss you. Hope all is well with you and your family.

Have a good day all.

Love this card. Could even go manly with one in the right colors. But the beach scene yesterday was the perfect Florida card. Love it, sand and all, since we fight sand and humidity and rust daily. Myra from Florida

Another gorgeous card! I love the flowers on this one. I just ordered a bunch more of your dies and am so excited to get them. Hopefully my cards will be half as good as yours.

Hi Sue, Lovely card today. This die is one of the most versatile die, I have seen a lot of cards using it. Maybe I should buy it. Arlyn

Janice Brummett said...

Pretty card again today. I love how you cut and alter your dies. I have such a hard time cutting your designs to make new ones. Guess I need to get some cheap paper and practice "altering" your dies till I get comfortable with it.

Latenight Sandy H said...

Gorgeous design using some of my favourite dies. The butterflies look so pretty in the teal colour. If only my leftovers could turn into a creation like today's card.
Take care everyone.

Hello Sue

Just logged on to your blog and seen this beautiful card........made with scraps!!

Most crafter have a box of 'bits' - not to be thrown away - so this is just what they are saved for in my opinion.

A true crafter wastes NOTHING!!!

Good morning Sue. I'm having a senior moment I think as I thought I'd already commented on this one but can't find it. Maybe I'm too excited as my elder daughter will be arriving into Manchester airport from Wisconsin this evening. The card is beautiful and I gave in to temptation on Tuesday and bought a bunch of Sue Wilson dies.
