Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

Hi bloggers!  Today's card giveaway is one that I made with the fallaway pieces from one of the dies!  Can you guess which one?  I started by embossing the background with the Brambled Rose folder and using White Pearl Lustre gilding polish over the top of it.  Next I cut a smaller piece of Blue Dusk card and added a sticky adhesive sheet to it.   I peeled the backing off and added the fallaway piece from the centre of the Rippled Striplet (did you guess it?)  Doesn't it make a nice background design?  I coated the exposed adhesive with Diamond Sprinkles.  I matted it with a white and a black mat and attached it to the centre of the card with mounting foam.  Next I cut the centre of the Atlantic Ocean Background die in black and matted it with Blue Dusk card and cut the centre out.  I turned the frame on the diagonal and mounted it with foam.  I cut the centre of the  Atlantic Ocean Background in black and glued it into lace in the middle of the card.  I stamped a sentiment and cut it  with the Stitched flags die, adding a small butterfly to the end of it.  I placed two more butterflies around the edge and finished the card with a couple of sugared flowers seated on a black satin ribbon bow in the corner.  White, black and blue dusk card mats and layers were added last.  The finished dimensions are 8 1/4" x  8 1/4" in size.  Leave a comment on this post to be included in the drawing to win this one.  All for now, Sue x

Beautiful card, stunning, what a Wednesday giveaway. Looking forward to your shows later on Hochanda.
Cheryl, you have wirked so hard on Fetes, Theatre and everything else I think feet up,bowl of strawberries and a glass of champers watching the tennis is well deserved. Enjoy ...
Elaine, it's not easy to explain on a form, why can't they see the problem. Good luck. Hope Mary is feeling more comfortable today.
Risemary, it us a long wait fir the results but as has been said that could be a good thing. Try not to get anxious, it won't help.
I'm okay, still haven't got prescription yet, will ring again today to see if letter there from hospital. One of my team overhear. My manager and HO whispering,so rude in front of staff, my name was mentioned and more cabinet moves. I'm going to have a word with someone as I think it is getting beyond a joke now.
P Austen, have a lovely stay in Wales, hope your weather is good.
Laine and Yvonne, hope the eye problems are easing, get better soon girls.
Hugs to all including our missing and poorly friends and all of their wonderful carers.

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
it's a WOWSER! I just love the colours, design and didn't realise (up to now) what a lovely background the fallaway from the striplet makes. What a brilliant way to use it! And what with sparkles and polishes it's right up my street.
Hugs, Rose

Denise Bryant said...

Beautiful details on this gorgeous card! Love the embossed layer and the butterflies!

Hello Sue, what a fabulous design, great to see leftover pieces used like this. Beautiful colours. Someone is going to be very lucky to own this card. Have a great day all. Bx

JennyH said...

Stunning as usual Sue, thanks for the chance to win your beautiful card : )

Lyn Cleasby said...

Lovely, Sue. Really like how you used the fallaway Striplet. So clever.

Janice K said...

Good morning Sue,
What a wonderful card for the giveaway! Beautiful colour combo and super flowers all with just the right amount of lovely sparkle-stunning! X

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. Now this is what I call a Sue card, it's simply beautiful. To think that one gorgeous Striplet fall out has made the background is brilliant, what a wonderful crafty brain you own, wish to share a small particle with me please ?
There are the cards I really adore, every little piece is just perfection, whoever is lucky enough to be the eventual owner will spend all day just looking at it from every lovable angle as I did when I was a lucky Wednesday winner, I'll never forget how I felt when I opened that envelope and held my gift - wow ☺
So a very special thank you for these gifts you give us. And a really BIG hug, not bug hug is on its way xxx

Good morning Sue,

Such a beautiful card yet again. I love the delicate blue against the light background and you can really see the lustre of the gilding polish in the light. It's a product I have but often forget to use, so thank you for the reminder!
Have a good day,
Nanny JooJoo from sunny Scunny xx

Dragonsnap2 said...

Gorgeous card for the giveaway and a great way to use the 'bits'.
Pam in my neck of the woods it can take a month or more for a letter to reach the gp from the hospital. I hope you don't have to wait that long and get sorted out soon.
Thoughts and prayers to all who need them.
Crafty hugs,
D xx

Such a Loverly card Sue you never fail to create such beautiful cards xxx

Morning Sue. This is a gorgeous card for the Wednesday giveaway but then again all your cards are beautiful. Didn't get the striplet but it does make a lovely background i just wish i had i your talent. The sugared flowers are stunning with those cute little butterflies. Have everything ready to record all your shows in case i miss something . Which ones are you going to tempt us with tonight lol but it doesn't take much to tempt me when i see all the beautiful things you bring. Have a great night Sue.
Best Wishes.

Maria Illsley said...

Wow what a beautiful card Sue. I love the colours and the background you created is gorgeous, where do you get your ideas from?
Truly brilliant xxx

CraftySuetoo said...

Good morning Sue. Beautiful card. You have a very delicate touch with the gilding polish, and it's lovely to see sugared flowers again. All your shows are set to record in case anyone dares to talk whilst you're on!
Pam, you definitely need to talk to someone, this situation just can't go on. If the bosses are hovering, just drop in the words " constructive dismissal" to a conversation with a trusted colleague. Someone I work with told me to make a file, make sure it had a high KB, password protect it, and name it " evidence of bullying", just to put the bosses in a panic mode!
Elaine, can you send someone pictures of the access point that's the problem, or even better get someone to video you struggling to get in - then tell the housing office that you'll send it to the local news if they aren't prepared to deal with the problem. Hugs to all. Sue xxx

Sue Kinson said...

Hi Sue,
Yet another beautiful card. The colours look so good and the flowers are beautiful.

Hi Sue
Stunning card! What a fabulous use of leftovers! Thanks for sharing. sorry you are having such problems. You should get medication as soon as you need it and those people at work are SO rude.
Have a great day everyone.

Rosemarie said...

Morning Sue, a lovely card this morning and a great background, how clever. Love the sugared flower, looks good enough to eat.

Love Rosemarie X X

Pam, I think things are getting beyond a joke at your workplace. I definitely think you should keep a log of all these incidents, it seems to me like bullying. My thoughts are with you. X

sharon casey said...

Morning Sue and all the Wilsonettes
What a stunning card for giveaway Wednesday and great that it is all from waste bits, loving the flowers too.

Pam I hope you get it sorted at work there beyond a joke I would keep a record as I agree its bullying.

Sending love and hugs to all that need them
Have a good day

Lovely card for the giveaway, Sue, and a good use of your fall away pieces to make a super background. No, didn't have a clue Do like the dusky blue card, so pretty.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, such a beautiful card today, would love to win this one, but I wish everyone good luck.

Pam I reiterate everything you have said above - what are your bosses trying to do, as someone said mention constructive dismissal to them and see what they say, are they trying to get you to leave of your own accord, bullying is a nasty thing in any form.

Will be watching your shows later Sue.

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

Diane Green said...

Good morning asue
What a beautiful card this morning, I was looking around to see if I could spot the use of waste from a die, admiring the backing paper which must have come from a new paper pad we haven't yet seen and blow me down that's the waste!! It makes a gorgeous backing Sue, who would have known. Thank you for sharing that tip and a delightful card.
Love Diane G xxx
Pam echoing your comments today and sending you a big hug. I also think this is getting to be such a joke, can you talk to the union again. Keeping the diary of events is a good idea but I'm sure you're already doing this. Xxx

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Crafty Ones and Wannabees,

What an unusual card! Yes I guessed but the name escaped me, and the closest I could come was Channel Striplet. I like that die best as a background when it's cut like this, with the fats together and the skinnies together, so you get an hourglass figure, rather than with the fats bulging into the skinnies so you get a curving channel.

So can anyone say what flowers these are? Are they the striped nasturtiums without the stripes? And then dipped in Diamond Snow? What about the leaves? Are those the chrysanthemum leaves? Anybody?

Just for the record, the butterflies are from the Cascading Butterflies, right?

Pam, I can't imagine a system in which you have to suffer another month before your prescription can be filled. How do you guys cope? It also seems like your side of the pond has to wait a long time for a funeral, too. Seems like the country could catch up if there were more funeral homes. Is the problem that no one wants to be an undertaker these days?

Oh dear, I need a lighter note to end on. Oh! Justin Trudeau is going to be right across the street from where I work at some point this week. The summer gathering of the National Governors Association will be in Providence, and Trudeau is giving the keynote speech. Vice President Mike Pence will also be there, but with Trudeau in town, who cares about any old U.S. Vice President?

I keep hoping our president will go on a state visit to Russia and defect. Just joking! All the cool presidents can take a joke!

Good luck to all those hoping to win this card.

Thanks, P in Wales, for teaching me the term "gutted." Sounds messy, like field-dressing a deer, not tidy like making a smaller panel from mirror card that would just be wasted when you only need a narrow edge of mirror to show around the outside. It seems like plain card should go in there to fill in the thickness of what you took out in the tidy gutting.

I guess if you already know what I'm trying to say, you can tell what I'm saying. And I call myself a writer! Here's something I learned about writing. It's not enough to make your writing possible to understand; you have to make it impossible to misunderstand. Which is almost as hard as getting good results with Pixie Powders!

Love to everyone,

lydia jordan said...

Morning Sue,
Beautiful card, I love your sugared flowers.

Yorks butterfly said...

Morning Sue, love this card. I have also used the fall-away from the Rippled Striplet as a background and have several more pieces left to use the same way, I have also used them as a frame.

Hi Sue, a beautiful card for the giveaway. No, I didn't guess about the fallaway peices and they do make a lovely background. I think I need to study the dies that I don't have much more carefully to try and see some of the things that you do :-)

Hello Sue and Everyone,
A beautiful card Sue as always, gorgeous in every way.
Sorry have not been here for a few days, so many hospital and clinic appointments. My daighter is a gem using her free time off work to take me.
Catching up on your cards and videos at 3am today.
Love the 'Brolly in a bottle' and the Handbag card, in fact all the cards were lovely.
Just wish I could find where to buy the delicate coloured cardstock.

Pam it happened to me, I was 67 and had been asked if I was retiring, I said no as I loved my job. Then it all started, little things, then more concentrated. In the end I left in a 'strop', just wish I had battled on, but heyho, I have more time to follow Sue's blog and make cards.
Hope all with problems health etc that all gets easier.
Happy crafting all.
Good luck all for the winner today.
Thank you Sue for your dedication to your followers and the inspiration you give us all.
take care.
Best wishes.

I have tried to read and catch up but I've probably forgotten most of it!
However , Pam , I'm sorry to read you are still having problems at work!
PatL - glad you have your family back home! What about your " flower ladies " who went to exotic shores! Are they home too? Hope they brought you something nice!
Yvonne and Laine - wow , you have been in the wars! I'm so sorry . Well done Laine's Mum !! Hope you have been able to watch Sue even with your dark glasses! Have you recorded the Shows? Sending love to both of you.
