For You

Hi crafters!  I have a pretty little number in lilac and white for today's offering.  I started by cutting the Michelle decorative die without the outer cutting edge.into the centre of a piece of coconut white card.  Next I used one of the flower stamps from the Floral Happiness clear stamp set and stamped it on to another piece of coconut white card using Shaded Lilac ink.  I got the flowers as close together as possible without overlapping them.  I added mounting foam to the back of the decorative cut out card and placed it over the stamped piece so they showed through.  In the corners of the top piece, I used the Summer Rose frame to create two corners.  I cut the frame twice out of white card and twice out of wisteria card.  I nipped away the larger corner on both white pieces and added them to the corners with mounting foam.  I cut away just the large roses out of the wisteria card and glued them on top in place on the white corners.  I lightly inked them with Shaded Lilac ink too.  I cut the sentiment from the Rose frame and used it for the centre of the card, seating it on the inside die from the Michelle die set.  I inked it lightly with Shaded Lilac as well.  The card was completed with white on white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

I LOVE how the Floral Happiness stamps do such interesting work behind Michelle's intricacy. Just when we thought we'd seen everything, you come up with a new trick. It really adds another level of elegance.

Wishing you and all your followers the best.

Good morning Sue.
How wonderful to be back from holiday and able to access your beautiful offering (With your help)
I was pretty devastated to get Bloglovin in Spanish whilst away with no way to change it that I could find.
I also realised that I must be addicted to your blog as I couldn't wait to get home.
How many ways are there to say THANK YOU?
Love from
Marie P.

I'm back too from my holidays and loads of
lovely cards to catch up with.

This is stunning, I do like the wisteria

the cut outs is a good idea,

Wow Sue,
This is a lovely design, I've been looking at my Michelle thinking I must really use it and give it the attention it deserves.
I love the background you have given it. As well as the diagonal accents (which I have so might just use them in that way, too).
Beautiful, thanks for sharing.
Hugs, Rose

Kiraneries said...

Hi Sue, a lovely calm card with white and wisteria, love it. Michelle is very pretty and I really like the idea of stamping a background to go behind her, I'll definitely remember this idea.
