You Are Too Kind

Hello bloggers!  I missed this pretty sample from the Sept. release and thought I would share it now with you.  I started by cutting both off the  decorative dies of the Sagitta Gemini die without the cutting edges into the sides of a piece of coconut white card.  I backed it with vellum for a soft look.  Next I cut the larger section of the die in Blue Dusk card twice and used the fall away pieces to paper piece the small teardrops back into the background for a touch of blue.  Next I cut the Jennifer die in white as a backdrop for my focal element.  The Scarlet die was cut in Blue Dusk card and backed with vellum and added to the middle.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the oval from the Scarlet die and backed it with a hand cut faux oval in blue.  I stacked them and added them with foam mounting to the centre.  Three vellum flowers were made using the small flower from the Nasturtium Cluster set and inked very lightly with  Stormy Sky Distress ink and added to the focal element.  White and Blue Dusk card mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  8 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good Morning Sue

Gosh this card looks so complicated on first sight but as you go on to explain how you constructed it I can see that it actually isn't and it is so beautiful.

Hello Sue,

I love this card and the dies that you have used to create it. I have found myself using them over and over so it is nice to see them being shown here in the spotlight. There is delicacy and softness to your design that is very appealing and the color combination is lovely.

Have a wonderful day.

Good Morning Sue and all
WOW card this morning , the effects created from the Sagitta Gemini die are stunning. The hint of the dusky blue card works so well with coconut card. The finishing touches with your flowers are stunning.
Sending crafty hugs and well wishes to all..... Wendy

Steph Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. This is such a beautiful delicate sample. The Sagitta is made for paper piecing, backing with vellum or even Pixie powdered backing, your floral element is just adorable in fact the sample in full is totally adorable thank you for giving it the day on the blog it really deserves. So it was impossible to hide my gifts within an egg (so I thought) the Birthday and wedding frame came as bought but then the rake,glove and tiny flower stalks fell into my lap lol followed by "Dig in" so you've guessed what the 3rd Easter surprise was, all will last longer than the egg so I can't wait to feel up to playing again ☺
Sending hugs for a lovely day xx

Morning Sue, such a beautiful card to brighten this miserable, wet morning. Hugs xx Pauline

Donita Naylor said...

My favorite part of this lovely sample is the blue dusk fallout drops that you have paper-pieced back into the Sagitta. They really do raise the perception of difficulty, without actually being difficult.

Best to all,

Hi Sue

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

Gorgeous card, the Sagitta makes a wonderful statement either side of the focal point dies and the addition of vellum adds a lovely soft-focus touch to the overall design - so glad this card had it's day on the blog...

Ann said...

Good Morning Sue. What can I say..... Blue... Lace.....just my kind of card. I love it Sue.... doesn't need anything else. And I think.... just my opinion.... that any of the gemini dies would have the same results. I have the Antlia and just might have a go with this later today. Lovely card. Sending best wishes to everyone this very wintery snowy morning. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a really lovely card today. The Gemini die is so intricate and paper piecing the teardrops was a real labour of love as well as all the tiny pearls. I do like the way you use vellum as a background and the vellum Nasturtiums are beautiful.
