Just For You

Hello there my crafty friends!  I thought I would share a card that uses one of the Stamps To Die For from the latest release.  I stamped the Lesley's Kaleidoscope stamp in black on white card and cut it out with the matching Lesley die.  I used Distress markers (Picked Raspeberry, Peacock Feather, Crushed Olive and Salty Ocean) to colour it in then sprayed it with glue and coated it with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz.  I used the outer decorative die from the Lesley to cut the background for it.  I cut it into the sides of a white card, then added a teal and black mat to it.  I cut the die once more out of another piece of white card, then added a white backing piece to it and taped it in place in the middle of the background and added a thin square frame from the Double Stitched Squares  around it.  I seated the die cut in the centre on foam.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the inner die from the set.  I inked the edges with Peacock Feathers, then cut another inner die in black, cut it in half and used it as a shadow behind it.  I seated it in the centre of the card with foam.  I added small pearls to the design then completed the card with white, black and teal mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  9" in size.    All for now,    Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, such a beautiful sentiment and the die combination is excellent, love the colour choices to match too.

I used a couple of your new dies yesterday at a workshop, oh my goodness - Millie and Triple Layer Wildflower, they are amazing, the dies cut out excellently and have very good embossing on them too, I am very pleased I got these.

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

Steph Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. I do love teal. What a beautiful way to show your new co-ordinating stamps, I know you've always said "you're never too particular " with the way you add your colour and you keep going back to intensify certain areas of the design but your samples always look that you've spent hour's and hour's working on them. Due to severe Raynauds I find holding colouring pencils and other colouring mediums impossible but I do love looking at work that is so beautifully coloured. I'm already seeing pictures coming through using your new collection both dies and the STDF collections and I'm more inspired than ever. Today's sample is a real gift for someone. Enjoy your day whatever you're doing xxx

Hello Sue
This sort of card is why I love your blog,while I still make some large cards I now love smaller ones and that central part is definitely my sort of card

Janice K said...

Good morning Sue,
A very pretty card showing us how versatile your dies and stamps can be. The Lesley stamp and die has made a beautiful large card here but could, if needed, be so easily reduced in size for a smaller card. X

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

What a beautiful card you have created using the Lesley die and the coordinating Kaleidoscope stamp. Your colors make it look like a kaleidoscope of rich jewels. I really enjoy seeing cards done with the matching stamps. It certainly adds another dimension to the card.

Have a wonderful day.

Suzzette Yandle said...

A lovely way to color this STDF as well as adding texture to it. Gives a stain glass effect. Your Lesley die cuts out a beautiful and delicate pattern.

Unknown said...

Very lovely and again I love the frame, to be honest I lost my mojo some time ago after a family upset and haven't made a card for quite some time but seeing the lovely Sue's new release has given me a very needed enthusiastic mojo x Johanna

Teresa "Tres" said...

Hi Sue. Today's card is very pretty !!! I love the colours you have used to colour in your STDF and adding the glitter adds such a lovely sparkle to the focal point. The background is very pretty and Lacey looking. I love the teal colour to. Your Lesley die set is lovely, with lots of lovely detailing. Thanks for sharing your lovely card Sue.

I love the card you showcased yesterday too Sue. A great pixie powder colour combo. I think your Claire die set is truly beautiful and I think it is a very classy, elegant die set. A cute little flower you made to, adding that finishing touch to your card. Just beautiful Sue. Thank you. Lots of love to you from Tres X X X

CCM said...

Mixed feelings about this card: love the background that you have created with Lesley, but don’t love that much the focal point. I am not sure about the whole design either.
