BestWishes

Hello crafters!  It's time to showcase the Roxy die!  I started with a piece of aqua card and used the Boomerang  Mask to create the background.  I taped it in place and then used the Moonlight Silver Luna Paste through it.  I allowed it to dry thoroughly then added a multi layered frame over it using the Double Stitched Squares.  I made a larger white base for it then added a thin aqua frame to the top inside edge.  I cut the Roxy die in white then added an antique silver card backing to it.  I cut a Pierced Flag and seated the Best Wishes sentiment on it cut in aqua with a silver shadow.  I used the Layered Carnation to make a scrunched flower out of aqua card.  I touched the edges of it with a bit of the silver Luna paste on my finger to tine in the tips of the flower.  I added some leaves as accents.  The card was completed with white, silver and aqua mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4" x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now Sue x

Hi Sue hope it's warmer where you are if you're still at Creativation, a word of advice stay there or find somewhere warmer to move onto lol it's rather chilly over the pond ! Anyway - you've used my most favourite pastel shade of blue I love the aqua card and use it whenever I can, I'm pretty certain I'll be the only one that admits to not been over keen on the Roxy die (ducking) the design itself is really pretty but I'd like to see the exact die smaller, I know there are hundreds of crafters that love Roxy and make beautiful cards with her and your sample today is gorgeous with the beautiful background I just see Roxy overpowering everything else, I'm sorry.
I hope whatever you do today is enjoyable and your warmer than us here in the U.K. xxx

Good Morning Sue. Beautiful card today Sue. I love the colours you have used for this card today. And Roxy is a die I like and love to see cards made with it.....but somehow I never got round to buying for myself......that might have changed now. You have so many beautiful dies Sue..... so you don't make it easy for us to decide what to buy..... this is meant in the nicest possible way of course. Just beautiful. Thankyou Sue. Sending best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Marie P.from Longridge said...

Good morning Sue.
Another Masterpiece for us today and I love the colours you have used.
I have never used a stencil since I was a child but I may just try it one of these days. I'm not doing much just now as I'm waiting for hip re-placement which is booked for early March and I never seem to have a week without pre-op work.
I hope you are having fun wherever you are Sue.

Hello Sue
This is lovely but not on my list of need dies. Like Anne says you make so many beautiful dies, on Saturday I ordered one of your Christmas dies and needed to chose another to get free postage it took me over an hour

Kiraneries said...

Hi Sue, a lovely card. Very pretty with your background, Roxy die and carnation flower.

Pauline Austen said...

Hi Sue, had a quick peek at today's card earlier and was excited about your stencil and lunar paste background. Have just spent the best part of an hour looking to buy some but as yet, can't make up my mind which ones/colours, to buy (same as Crewe Trish, in a way).
Such a lovely card! Hugs xx Pauline in S.A.

Hello Sue and all
Lovely stencil background with the lunar paste and of course the favourite aqua. Roxy is a standout, one I missed and now wonder why? Must behave though knowing there is a new release on the way lol !

Hi Sue, I love the aqua and silver background and the layered carnation flower but I agree with Steph that Roxy is rather overpowering, sorry.

Suzzette Yandle said...

Lovely combination of layers and colors. The Luna paste looks great through the Boomerang Mask. I think your Layered Carnation is the best of the carnations currently on the market.

Tressa said...

Like others, I am not so keen on the Roxy die. I do like the background and colour choices here though.

Hi Sue. What a truly amazing card. I love the way the Roxy die sits so nicely on the boomerang embossing folder all tied together by the lovely colours.
