King Of The Grill

 Hello there my crafty friends!  I thought I would share one of my favourite cards from the barbecue themed die set called King of the Grill (in case you didn't see enough of it this past weekend!)  I started by cutting the Celebrations square Shadow Box in milk Ruby Red card.  I added mounting foam to the back and attached it to piece of black and cream dotty paper from my stash.  I decided to add a multi layered frame cut from the Stitched Square Pegboard Frame die set.  I used milk card for the wider base piece then added in a thinner black frame around the outside edge.  For the individual shadow boxes, I cut the barbecue in black gloss card, coloured the flames with distress oxides and added a skewer and  fork off of the edge in the largest section.  Above that, I cut the griddle and added a chicken drumstick and sat the mustard and ketchup to the side.  I cut the chef's hat in white and added it to the smallest section.  The sentiment was cut twice, once in black and once in milk card.  I offset the milk die cut behind the black one and added two utensils to the corner in the upper box.  The card was completed with milk, red and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Great card Sue, perfect for our male cards.
I hope Heather had a lovely birthday, and that her move across country and her new job goes well.
Steph can't believe Lottie is 2, how time flies. You will be missing her, such a delightful age.
Hapoy birthday Marianne for yesterday and everyone else who had family birthdays.
Maureen, Hapoy Anniversary to you and George, hooe he is feeling better.your nursing ethics (braining him) must have him scared. Hope you can make the Naughties meet up this time.
Crewe Trish, hooe you are feeling better.
Donita you do make me laugh, I now look forward to my cruise on the good ship Surgical Procedure
Elaine, hooe you managed to catch up with yourself yesterday.
My daughter and son in law are due backfrom Mexico today, luckily Hurricane Nate missed Mexico although the hotel had gone into emergency prep. They haven't had brilliant weather bless them.
Hugs to all, special thoughts for our poorly and missing friends

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. A new week begins and I'm sure I can smell the delights of sizzling sausages or is that just wishful thinking. A truely fun card full of colour. This is a collection I'm sure the women who visit market will love this for the men in their lives, this is why I need to get it ready for when we see the sun again next year. If I had a £1.00 for every time I hear the words "you don't see these type of cards in the shops" then I'd be wealthy enough to have every single die you've launched - all 600 + and they are right. So thank you Sue.
Well I hear movement from the bedroom so I'll send love and hugs and wish you a happy Monday xxx

CraftySuetoo said...

Good morning Sue. A fun card, and as Stephanie says not one you'd ever see in a shop. I love all the little details such as the ketchup bottles and utensils.
Belated anniversary wishes to Maureen and George, hope he soon feels better and you get to meet up with your group. Hugs to all. Sue xxx

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, delightful card love it and the die is on its way to me, I thought I had ordered it when it was released but can't find it.

Pam I reiterate all you have said, trying to type one 1 fingered because I have been trying to sort out my craft room and there is stuff everywhere.

Dragonsnap2 said...

I love this colour scheme and use it quite a lot. Add to that your fabulous dies and we have one gorgeous card that's a great addition to the male selection.
Hope everyone has the best day possible.

Good Morning Sue. Such a wonderful card for the man with a summer birthday or summer evening get together and such a change from trains boats planes and sport.
I hope your daughter had a lovely birthday Sue and good luck with her move.
Well I am toddling off to the post office sorting place this morning. To hopefully pick up my prize from the die launch. The posts man couldn't get it in the letter box and as we were away he left me a card to say where it was. I can't wait to get my hands on it and have a play. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. What a great card for those difficult men. I am sure they would love receiving a card like this as much as they love to stand over their barbeque LOL.


Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Crafty Crafters,

Because of today's card, I had to order the square shadow box and 16-20 other things, such as more Pixie Powders (that was because of yesterday's card).

In Rhode Island, people BBQ in winter, even in the snow. (The grilling, not the eating). They do it in the garage, next to the open garage door.

Congratulations Maureen and George! And condolences for the urping. (That's how you know you're in real life and not a movie.)

I wonder if tea tree oil (melaluca) would ease Andrew's rash. Pure shea butter is also very soothing.

Best of weeks to everyone, especially those that could use a good week.

I have to admit that this really isn't my kind of thing, but it is very clever, and I'm sure some people will find it invaluable for the men in their lives. Very useful too for people who make cards to sell. I enjoyed the weekend shows Sue. x

Hi Sue and everyone

A fun card today. Love all the little elements. I didn't know BBQs were shiny in America until I watched your shows.

Maureen and George, hope you had a lovely anniversary, even if George was under the weather. I hope he feels better soon, and that you don't get it.

Love Helen xxx

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I love this cheeky card and the die set. I adore all the tiny elements but sadly have no-one to whom I could send such a card so cannot justify the expense. I will just have to admire from afar.

Maureen - Belated Happy Anniversary to you and George. I am sorry that George was not well and hope that he feels better today. I don't think he would dare to be unwell enough to stop you going to the meet-up :-)

I have just got back from having my flu jab and am beginning to feel a little light-headed so I think a cup of tea and a re-watch of one of Sue's shows is in order.

Hope everyone has a good day.


Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
I never tire of your cards, be they of the fun variety or the opulents or the CAS or the just simple exquisitely beautiful ones. So this one's no exception - And King of the Grill - which man wouldn't want to be in charge of the Barbie! :-)
Hugs, Rose

Thank you ladies for your good wishes on our Anniversary, it certainly wasn't the way I thought we'd spend but it was worse for George than me!!
Love to all

Pawprintx4 said...

This is such a charming card that any fellow with a grill should be delighted to receive. I don't even know how to light a charcoal grill but I would be tickled to get this card. BTW, Helen, what colors are grills in England? I have seen red ones here but Sue is correct in saying they are mostly glossy black.I was curious about that comment also....
Elaine, I do hope your husband gets the right cream or salve needed to clear up his rash. It sounds dreadful, poor guy.
A rainy Monday here so will do a few necessary evils known as house work and then finish a birthday card I am making with Sue's weaving first attempt and I do love it. My stamping buddy recipient will be impressed. No one in my stamp group "weaves" but I will bet the orders will go in after they see what can be done. Love them...Julia's demo sold me.
Everyone, have a good Monday,

Hello Sue
I love your square shadow box die it was the first one I bought of your latest collection I have quite a few of the accessories now they mix and match beautifully the tool dies are next on my list.
Pam I hope you are keeping well.Donita barbecues in winter bbrr Elaine poor Andrew he never complains so he must be in agony I hope they can sort him out soon.Rosemary I can't find your comments over the last few days are you alright.

Beryl Treble said...

Lovely card.

Littlelamb said...

A fun card Sue but unfortunately no one to send one to but I do like the look of the square shadow box card. That would be useful. I do hope Maureen gets to the meet up this time. She will be upset if she doesn't and George will be in the doghouse. Elaine that must be awful for Andrew. I remember I came out in a rash when I was having chemo. It was horrible. Echoing all Pam's comments.

Saba said...

Hello Sue,
I just love this card, the pegboard is the perfect backdrop for all the barbecue accessories, and the black and ruby read make a stunning colour combination. Sorry I haven't commented since I got to the Uk, it's been full on since the moment I landed. Belated Happy Birthday to Heather, hope she enjoyed seeing her card., it was gorgeous.

Elaine, I'm so sorry Andrew is suffering, hope they can help him at the skin clinic.
Pam I bet you can't wait to see your daughter, such a shame the weather wasn't kind to them.
Frances hope the flu jab doesn't lay you low.
Only one more sleep and then the fun can begin. Maureen is under strict instructions not to kiss George!
Love and hugs for all

Debbie said...

This is the perfect card for all the men in my life. I live in Wisconsin in the USA. We grill all year round. Snow, sleet, rain, hot summers, it doesn't matter here. You can never go wrong with good meat, seafood and vegetables on a grill. In fact, tonight we are making fish and sweet corn on the cob, on the grill. I'm already drooling just thinking about the yummy flavors.
