For You

Hi bloggers!  We are going bright and bold for today's offering!  I started by cutting the Celtic Circle background using Iris card.  I backed it with coconut white card.  Next I made a frame using the Double Stitched Squares out of white card.  I added it with foam over my background.  I stamped the Claire's Sweet Garden Vine Stamp To Die For in black.  I cut it out with the matching die from the Claire die set.  Using Distress Markers, I coloured in the stamp design, then mounted it on the largest die from the set to give it a pretty white decorative border around it.  I added it to the centre of the frame with foam.  I used the For You Shadowed sentiment cut in Iris card and glued it in the centre of the stamped image.  I cut two large and four smaller flowers using the Layered Carnation.  I inked the centres with Chalk Cloud inks to match the stamp (Vanilla Twist, Princess Pink and Gentle Lavender) and mounted them in opposite corners. I added some white leaves as accents around them.  White and Iris card mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue,
Your bright and bold card was lovely to wake up to this morning. I particularly like the floral colours and how the stamped image is echoed by the flower embellishments. X

Hi Sue. Back home from our cottage on the farm so have WiFi to digest this happy colourful beautiful sample for longer which means I smile for longer lol. It's great to see the new launch dies coming through and boy what inspiration to start with. It's black as black outside but certainly bought spring inside, it's absolutely gorgeous from start to the final carnations. I love waking up to your inspiration Sue, thank you and enjoy your day xxx

Hello Sue,

What a bright and happy card to start the day. I love seeing the matching Stamps To Die For incorporated into the cards. It totally changes the look of the card. I like how you have used the colors in the stamp to coordinate with the centers of the carnations. A burst of summer.

Have a great day.

A bright and cheerful card although I feel the blue background die tends to detract from the beautifully coloured stamped image.

Hi Sue, today's bright and bold card is in total contrast to yesterday's soft and gentle one but equally as lovely. I love all the cards that have your stamping and colouring on you do it so well and this one is beautiful.

PP - I hope the visit to the dentist was painless.
