Thinking Of You

Hello friends!  I thought I would share a pretty card that showcases the Lattice Edging die set.  I started by using a Pixie Powder background that I had in my stash.  I used Midnight Blue, Purple Violet and Peacock Green for this one.  Since the colour was quite intense it works perfectly with the all white die cuts.  I cut the Lattice Edging die in white into a piece of card top and bottom and attached it over the pixied background.  Next I cut the smaller die from the set twice out of  white and backed them with white.  I glued them into place on the top on bottom inside area of the background.  Next I cut the Phoebe die in white and backed it in white that was cut with a sticky adhesive sheet on it.  I put them together and glittered it with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz and mounted it horizontally in the centre of the card with foam.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the inside oval from that set.  I used spray glue on it then added more glitter and mounted it in the centre of the card.  I made a small flower using the leftover bit of the pixied card using the Petite Dianthus die set and mounted it on a white silk ribbon bow (from my stash) and added two leaves.  White on white mats were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  7" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good Morning Sue

A beautiful card for Monday morning and the start of the week. I was only thinking yesterday how many cards you have posted every day over the time that you have had your blog. You have never missed a day, I think Creative Expressions were very lucky to have you on board! On the other hand it must have been lovely working with such great products over the years.

Have a lovely day sweet friend

Very pretty Sue. The dianthus looks so sweet, sitting on top of the bow.

Donita Naylor said...

You must have used half a bottle of blue Pixie to get this deep color, using the other colors for subtle variation. But it sure catches the eye when seen through the lovely lattice.

And I'm with everyone who loves the perky blue dianthus flower, especially with those two stitched leaves perched on top of the grown-up bow.

Hope everyone's week goes well

Best,
Donita

Steph Cotterill said...

Oh my word Sue. A vision of pure beauty and as you enlarge the still photos the brilliant colour and sheen of the background radiates through the intricut die. Then the tiny coloured pearls pop out at each corner with the dianthus being the finale along with the bow. A wonderful way to start the day, beautiful sun and glistening beads of rain, plus your amazing work of art, what more does anyone need - have a lovely happy day xxx

Scottydog said...

A real beauty! Such delicate lace work offset by that rich blue pixie background, then those little finishing touches go together so well. 5 minutes ago I was looking at the lace edger, wondering wether to buy it or wait for your Festive collection. This has made my decision, just off to order it now! Thanks Sue.
