For You

Good Sunday morning all!  I have an unusual colour combo for today's offering, but I thought I would give it a try!  I started by embossing a piece of slate grey card using the Opulent Frame folder.  I used Enchanted Gold Gilding Polish lightly over the top of it.  Next, I cut the Eliza die in white and added an antique gold card backing.  I cut the centre die from the set in white and added a slate grey backing to it.  I used the For You shadowed sentiment in white with a grey offset shadow and backed it with the larger white shadow before adding it to the centre of the card. I used the Layered Carnation to make three dimensional flowers.  The edges were tinged with Enchanted Gold gilding polish to tie in with the card.  I embellished it with gold leaves.   White, grey and gold mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 1/2" in size.

Just a quick reminder, I am finishing up the ODS on Hochanda today with shows at 9am, 1pm and 5pm.   Hope you can join me!   All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue and all
Love the effect of the gilding polish on the slate grey today, it reminds me of a fireplace in my grandparents house too many years ago to say exactly how many lol !
The 3D embossing folders look is is such a lovely and different card, beautiful!

Good Morning Sue. How lovely this card is and so different from you. It looks like antique..... well that's the image I am getting here.... but I just love it. And any sentiment would be appropriate if so wished. Great card Sue. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Morning Sue. It maybe unusual but it really works well. That embossing folder is absolutely lush so much depth and detail, it really cries out for guilding polish and such like. I'm loving today's inspiration Sue. Off to market later so lots to organize and get done before it's time to leave. Will be catching up with today's shows later but yesterday's shows were lovely. Enjoy your day and your massive audience awaits you xxx

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, wonderful, wonderful shows, I am out at a workshop all day today but will catch up when I get back.

Excellent sample, great technique xx

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Hello Sue,

The embossing from the 3D folder is impressive and colored with the gilding polish it looks like antique metal. The card itself is stunning.

Your shows on Saturday were fabulous. It's always exciting to see the samples that you create and the ones you had for your shows were fabulous. The mermaid cards were so magical and fun. Looking forward to your other shows.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

Beverly

A very smart card Sue. I enjoyed your show yesterday and yes, I gave in to temptation 😀. Thank you, enjoy your day.xxx

Hi Sue
A beautiful card, love the colours.
Fabulous mermaid show yesterday. I loved the bubbles background you made for the first demo. I must get some sparkle shakers, they look perfect for me (I’ve tried using glitterbitz but they go everywhere).
Like you I’ve made my own tool for picking up things, but mine is a cocktail stick (toothpick) with a small ball of blu-tak on the end.
Looking forward to catching up with all your shows.

Good morning Sue,
As you say,an unusual colour combination, but one that looks great. The 3D embossing folder and gilding polish really lifts the project and Eliza makes a stunning centrepiece. X

Good Morning sue and all
Amazing card this morning and I love the colours you have used on the card. The embossing folder gives the card great depth and I love the little hint of polish. Having the gold card in the background of the Eliza die works beautifully.
Loved your shows yesterday and was lovely to have you back on honchanda and looking forward to days shows.

Enjoying watching you in action. 3 shows yesterday and 3 more today - feel very spoilt. You are so clever and the way you explain things makes it so easy to understand - even for idiots like me x

Hi Sue. Nice card today, the Eliza die cuts such a delicate design. Am watching your 9:00 show and am so amazed by the dies which I thought may be a little tricky to use, but you have made it look so easy. Must go now before I miss anything.
