A Friend Is Like A Rainbow

Good Sunday morning all!  This card was quite a funky little demo I did on my last shows.  It is a great way to use up some of those extra scraps of card we all have (and boy do we!) LOL  I attached strips of yellow, blue and raspberry card to a piece of copy paper using some spray glue.  Next I randomly cut small frames from it using the Stitched Hexagons die set.  On another piece of coconut white card, I glued them into place across the corner of the card in a sort of honeycomb fashion.  There was no match to the colours at all, just random.  In the upper corner I added my sentiment which I stamped on to a separate piece of card, then cut around it using the inner die from the Lavish Accented Hexagon die set.  Then I added a multi layered frame around it using a wider white frame and one of the hexagons with colour on it.  I liked that the sentiment related a friend to a rainbow, which is just what the card ended up looking like!  The card was completed with white on white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 1./4" in size.

The winners of this week's Comment Games are :

Pam said...

Love this card,, it's clean, colourful and very modern looking.
Congratulations to comment game winners. Enjoy your prizes.
So many happy recipients of Sues generosity, we are truly blessed on this blog.
Ann Topcards, I'm so sorry to hear that your brothers treatment has been postponed. I hope he recovers enough strength to have his treatment soon. He is lucky to have such a loving sister to help him.
Crewe Trish, what a day you had. Hope Mum and hubby are feeling better now. Now you need a treat and Sues dies would be perfect for you.
Tracy, it's no wonder you are feeling tired honey. You have so much on your mind at the moment. At least when you get your new dies, I bought them too, you may have inspiration to use them. I'm going to use mine on mixed media too. Sending you lots of supporting hugs too.
Donita, loved your bubbles therapy, sounded so beautiful and relaxing.
Saba, no offence meant. My die set with the two cocktail glasses arrived yesterday, it's huge, beautiful and you would love it too.
Carmen, it must have been a huge wrench to leave your family and homeland to emigrate, you have done so well and made a wonderful life for you and your family. You truly have a formidable inner strength to overcome that and a new language to.
Daily hugs to all, hope you are enjoying your weekend. Special thoughts to poorly and missing friends and also the Wiksonettes who are daring for poorly family members.

Good morning Sue. Fabulous card, I saw it and thought how much patience you must have to paper piece the hexagons and then I read how you'd made it! Brilliant way of using up scraps of paper, and I love the sentiment too. Hugs to all. Sue xxx said...

Morning Sue.
Thank you a very happy card so pretty.
Congratulations to all the comment winners, enjoy your prizes.
Take care all and have fun Kitty.

Lyn Cleasby said...

Love this, Sue. What a great way to use scraps or patterned paper.

Steph Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. A colourful simple but happy kind of start to our day. Left over bits !!! Where do I start ? An old plastic small storage box with small leftovers separated into similar blues, shades of pink etc on the bottom of my cardstock shelf, I have an A4 cellobag where I 'play' - a disorganized mess where all sorts of leftover bits get thrown, and a hugh plastic box full, when do you realise its time to stop and have a sort out. Every little corner or strip I keep for tiny centre's of flowers or leaves, I even cut the excess card left from the negative when I've cut a die to use for the smaller daisy or peony etc and the once I did have a sort through, the guilt of recycling my card was ridiculous lol so yes we know what you mean about scraps 😕
A lovely sample with fresh happy colours.
Congratulations to the comment winners, have fun with your gift.
Sending love and hugs and thanks for sharing today's inspiration xxx

Jan on the Fosse said...

GM Sue. Great card. Must try this!

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

What a clever way to use up leftover bits and pieces. And the end result is a very colorful and happy card that would delight anyone.

Have a wonderful day. I hope the weather is better where you are. It's cold and very rainy here.


Unknown said...

Morning Sue

I hope Thanksgiving wasn't a wash out.

Lovely fresh card today - and using leftovers as well. It just goes to show what can be achieved if you just give it some thought. I think Jan is right it would make a great trendy teenager card. This age range especially for boys I find is very difficult. It seems so much easier for teenage girls.

Congratulations to our winners hope you have fun with your prizes.

Happy Sunday

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
Fab card, saw you demo this and can only agree - brilliant way to make use of all the scraps. And so easy to do.
I LOVE the hexagon dies, it is impossible to make a rubbish card with them. And they are extremely versatile.
Hugs, Rose

Hunnymummy54 said...

Morning Sue and all the Wilsonettes
I love this card and did make some with the die after seeing you demonstrate it, its so clean and fresh.

I reiterate all that Pam has said above and send love and healing hugs to all who need them xx

Have good day all

hettygarlick said...

Such a clever idea and very effective.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, such a pretty sample this morning and as you say a great way to use up those left overs. I too have loads of them I try to put the left over bit back into the same packet/box that the card came from that way I don't have loads of different bits and pieces that I have to sort through, have you noticed how many different shades of white and card sizes there are, to me there is nothing worse then putting the wrong white on a card, it shows up so quickly. Anyway I digress, I really like the sentiment, it means so much to so many people.

Pam I reiterate all you have said, and I am giving away free lots of hugs too, just help yourself.

Off to a craft workshop all day today, lots of stamping, inking and flower making, it is our last monthly one of the year so we are having a little Christmas party as well, crafting to Christmas music, looking forward to it. I think hubby is going to put the decorations up today, he is like a little kid and always puts them up so early, but he loves it.

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

Dear Sue and Crew,

How clever! And thrifty! And cute!
Congratulations to the winners of the comment draw. Sue, your generosity is much appreciated.
Crewe Trish, your mother apparently has the pluck to make the best of an upset, but your poor husband, going from cut to fall to bashing his head. I hope he feels like himself soon.
So sorry Ann Topcards about your brother.
Tracy I hope you'll be gentle with yourself while your energy level is low. Almost all of your emotional and physical energy is needed for the basics, with hardly any left over.
Saba, thank you for the jolly rainbow bubble hug.

Best to all the weekending Wilsonettes.

Tressa said...

Someone above used the word quirky to describe this and I agree. It is beautifully quirky. Somehow I must have missed the show in which you demonstrated this so must make a note on how to do it. But then I need to get the hexagon dies to reproduce it.... in time......

Hi Sue, a very modern take on CAS and what a clever way to use up some scraps. You could make this card with multiple differing colours and no two would be the same.

Hello Sue
This is a brilliant idea for using up our stash of card though most of mine now go to Katie for use with her baby machine which she still loves. Hopefully I have dropped enough hints to my husband that your 3 sets of hexagons are top of my wish list.
Mum is feeling a bit battered and bruised bless her and my husband just feels stupid he has a lovely shiner.
Donita I love your bubble idea.Huggles to everyone who needs them

Tooth Fairy Jo said...

Hello Sue,
I absolutely love this card. It's bright, it's cheerful and it's ingenious. I'm not terribly good at random! I'd have been spending ages matching the colours up, I blame the fact I'm a Virgo. I wish I'd seen you demonstrate this, I've been trying to work out just how wide the strips need to be to get the same effect. When I've got a bit more time I'm going to have a go. Thank you for the idea.

Congratulations to the lucky ladies who have won the comment game prize, enjoy your gift.
Pam, no offence taken, Cheers. Enjoy using your dies.
Elaine I hope you are alright, it must have shaken you up. I'm thinking of doing a lot of my Christmas shopping this year on line too.
