You Are So Kind

Good Sunday morning all!  I know that after the flurry of multiple posts for the past week and a half, a single post may seem a bit dull!  I hope this card won't let you down, though, as the Stamp To Die For is so pretty!  I started with the Roxy die and cut the decorative die into the upper right corner, then the lower left corner in the opposite direction.  Yes, there was an over cut area, but not to worry, it was easily hidden.  I backed the piece with vellum to have a soft see through to it. Next, I stamped the Roxy's Forget Me Nots STDF in black and used Distress Markers to colour it in.  I used the outer die from the Roxy to cut it out and I mounted it in the middle of the card with foam.  I cut the sentiment from the Garden Delight Frame and glued it into the centre of the stamped image.  I added white pearls in the opposite corners as accents.   The card was completed with white on white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue and all
Another beautiful example of your STDF and colouring. Roxy is a great die and this card is fabulous. I really hope I can colour even half as well when my new stamps turn up in the post.
What a shame, 24 hours until the next post lol ! But really enjoyed the release,
Hugs

Hi Sue. What a fabulous week or so you've given us. So many gorgeous dies I thought I didn't want, until you showcased your stunning samples then the list multiplied then doubled and that's without the stamps to match ! So although it's going to take some getting use to only having one post it means less work scheduling 4 posts a day for you, but even one post per day is worth looking forward to that's for sure. Roxy, I will admit is not a favourite of mine but I know she has a place in 100's of homes, for me she over powers but saying that I've seen some spectacular cards made with her and the STDF. Whatever your plans, wherever you are hope your day is a good one xxx

Hello Sue,
Really pretty card this morning. Always enjoy admiring your cards with STDF and wish I could colour as well as you.
Have really enjoyed the past week and a half with multiple posts and want to thank you for all your hard work. Some dies really need to be showcased to show their beauty.

Hi Sue
I don’t think that dull would ever be a word that could be used to describe your blog or any of your cards!!
And this card is no exception. Roxy in her own right is a beauty and here she has been enhanced with a blaze of glorious colour to make a fabulous work of art. Exquisite x
Happy Sunday everyone

Morning Sue, fabulous colouring and such a lovely stamp. I would love this card in a frame, displayed on a wall.
Thank you for all your hard work during the past 8/9 days. We have seen some beautiful cards.
Now we can spend a little more time admiring them whilst arranging and rearranging our 'To buy'dies from your launch. Who wouldn't want them all if guns allowed?
Hugs xx Pauline in S.A.

Pauline Austen said...

Sorry about the mistake. Obviously it should read 'funds' instead of guns. oops! Pauline xx

Marie P.from Longridge said...

Good Sunday morning Sue.
A beautiful card to start the week and I do so love your colouring. I am not a stamper yet I have enough stamps and colouring pens and pencils to open a shop! I wish you could come and spend a week at my house to get me started in the right way.
I have thoroughly enjoyed your launch and have pinned many of your samples for future inspiration.
Thank you so much.

Hello Sue
You have never posted a dull post. This card is definitely ornate perhaps a little too fussy for me but that is the beauty of your cards you can pick out different elements.

Hi Sue
Thank you for spoiling us this past week and a bit but I’m sure you’re glad to be back to just one post a day. Love how you’ve cut the Die into the background and backed it with vellum and I always admire your stamps even though I’m not much of a stamper.

Love and hugs to everyone
Pat

Hi Sue what a delightful card xx

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, you never let us down so don't even think it. Roxy may not be my favourite die but I do like the way you have used her on this card and the STDF do what is says on the tin lol. Beautiful colouring and I look forward to being able to see flowers like these outside rather than frost and snow.

Eunice Astle said...

Like your background Sue, and the fact that it isn't perfect but can be covered over by Roxy die is great. Always wondered if you could use bits and pieces of card stock and I now have my answer!!! Thanks for the wonderful January launch.

Sue MacFall said...

Great colouring. What a great new collection you have put together, Sue.

Teresa "Tres" said...

Hi Sue. I love your gorgeous card today !!! The Roxy die is absolutely beautiful. Very classy looking. The STDF is beautiful to. I wish I was as good at colouring in as you are Sue. I am hoping to learn some useful colouring techniques this year as I have a few lovely stamps now and I just want to improve. Lovely colour combo you have used on this card Sue. I loved every minute of your amazing new die launch and I have really enjoyed seeing the way your dies mix and match together. You have some fab ideas and inspiration. I have also noticed that you have used some fantastic colour combinations with this launch, especially with your new triple layer dies. Thank you Sue for everything you have done. You have worked so very hard, and there are now so many dies on my wish list that I want !!! The mermaid sets are high on my wish list along with Millie ( which I have fallen in love with), several sentiment dies and some triple layer dies to. It is just so hard to know where to start !!! All my love from Tres X X X

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

How delightful to see a card using one of your STDF. Roxy's Forget Me Nots remind me of a lovely country walk in the Springtime with all of the wildflowers starting to bloom. I have loved every stamp released with this collection and it has been my mission to use every one. I have one left to do. You make your coloring seem so easy and your results are always so pleasing to the eye. My coloring is always a challenge that I'm not giving up. I love the vellum behind your die cuts, it really adds a gentleness to the card.

Have a great day.

Beverly

Karenladd said...

Wow is this a beautiful card. I love how you combined a stamp with the dies for a design that pops!

I am always a sucker for the stamped cards and this one just shows how beautiful the die looks in conjunction to its stamp sister.Perfection.
