Just For You

Hi crafters!  I just love this new Feltmark textured card and Old Rose is my go to at the moment!  I started by cutting the Matilda Border die.  I used coconut white as the top, Powdered Pink as the second layer and Old Rose as my base.  I cut two of these curved borders and added then with foam mounting tape to the sides of my coconut white card background.  For the focal element, I cut the Vivian die out of Old Rose card.  I backed it in Powdered Pink card and used the two outer cutting edges with the thin circle centre to cut a frame to go around the edge in white card.  I cut the Just For You sentiment then nipped it apart to use it in a stacked orientation in the centre of the Vivian die.  I cut two Petite Forget Me Not flowers out of Powdered pink card and edged them lightly with Victorian Velvet ink before assembling.  I added the flowers in opposite sides with white leaves as accents.  The card was completed with white, Powdered pink and Old Rose mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x 8 1/2" in size.
    I have decided to add a little something extra to the blog every once in a while in the form of a question for you to answer in your comments.  Also, it just let's me know you are actually reading the blog and not just looking at the pictures! LOL  So for today's question, if you were stranded on a remote deserted island and could only have one song that you could play over and over again, what would it be????  If you are struggling to come up with an answer, which song is the first to pop into your head, that should make it a tad easier (plus I won't hold you to it if you are ever stranded on an island, it is just a bit of fun, no stressing over it!  LOL)  All for now, Sue x

Great card and a great question. There are so many songs I would class as my favourites. Think I’m a believer by The Monkees is something I could listen to over and over as it has a good beat to it

Morning Sue. A new week and a beautiful sample to start it with. There new colours are absolutely delightful and when used with your dies, they compliment each other gorgeously.

My song would be - Lean On Me by Bill Withers. I won't go into detail because you've not asked us to, but it has such a back story it's so powerful to me that although I cry whenever I hear it, that's my song ☺
I wonder what your song would be lol. Sending love and hugs to start your day xxx

Hello Sue, a really pretty card today, and a favourite colour combo for me. My chosen song would be Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond. Have a good day everyone. Bx

Marion Scott said...

Beautiful card Sue. I too love the new rose coloured card.
I love all kind of music but I think anything by Elvis Presley or ABBA. There songs have stood the test of time and still sound beautiful.
Perhaps I Have a Dream by ABBA .

Marie P.from Longridge said...

Good morning Sue and all.
A beautiful card and the colours are just right as always. I love the shades of pink which are so femining.

I rarely listen to music these days because of my deafness but if I had to choose it would have to be a choice between YOURS by Vera Lynn or Maggie that is now playing in my Hugs to all.

Hi Sue - just love this rose colour card and the Matilda border is so pretty. If I had to choose a song it would be the Everly Brothers All I Have to do is Dream. Sending best wishes

Muriel said...

Hello Sue and all
Beautiful card again in those lovely pinks, they go together so well
I think God only Knows by the Beachboys, particularly that fabulous scene in Love Actually, brings a lump to my throat every time I see it (every Christmas lol !)

Princess Pixie! said...

Hi Sue
Oh yes, old Rose and Powdered Pink are such gorgeous colours. They are on my hit list. Matilda is now one of my friends (thanks to my boys on Mother’s Day). She is a star and alongside Vivian (an equally beautiful die), this card is wonderful. The Victorian Velvet ink on the Forget me nots is a perfect match for those colours.
Just the one song - that’s like asking you - if you could only ever use one of your dies for the rest of your life which one would it be?! I can think of so many songs from different times in my life. Ooh which one? I think it would be Hold on by Wilson Phillips. It holds a special place in my heart and never fails to make me sing along at the top of my voice!
A hint of blue sky and the sun is shining this morning - hopefully no more frosty mornings - it is the middle of April after all!
Happy Monday everyone

A beautiful card SUE I bought some of the old rose card at Ally Pally
As to a song I am a huge huge Motown fan but I also dance Salsa and then there is the songs we had at our don’s funeral... If I really had to pick one song it woul have to be Chan Chan by Beuno Vista Social Club It is soothing/calming and if I fancy it can dance my socks off too

Ann Topp said...

Good Morning Sue. Gorgeous card Sue. And this old rose colour is beautiful. It's a beautiful combination of dies that all tie in so good together. And I just love the sentiment. I have this ... and I use it quite a lot. Beautiful work Sue.
My song would be. Somebody like you. By Kieth Urban. Would keep my feet tapping as well. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Jean Z said...

Hi Sue, Very pretty. love Jean Z xxxx

Scottydog said...

I’m loving these triple Dies, they really are so effective. Lovely colour combination. Thank you Sue.

My song would be ‘You’ll Never Wallk Alone’ and no I am not from Liverpool! I just love the song.

Crafty Vonnie said...

Good morning Sue,

Gorgeous card.
My song would be slave to love by Bryan Ferry.can you tell us yours?

Clai01 said...

Well the song has to be ...We'll always be together .. Forever in Electric Dreams ... which has been recently used in a UK tv advert, much to my delight !
The song would give me hope, that i could maybe get away? back to some other familiar place and loved ones one day ! back to reality i suppose.
as pretty as the island might be? i'd get fed up of all the hot weather? x
Do look for escapism often though as we all must do sometimes but i think i'm more of a countryside/beautiful garden type place than a beach/sea scene ? x

stitchingranny said...

A gorgeous card and I am loving that dusky rose shade. Ok I admit some days its just a quick look, but I do usually read Sue. It would have to be an old Barbara Dixon one called Caravan, it speaks to my soul. If you have never heard it Sue this is a youtube link

Hugs Helen xx

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Gorgeous post and that old rose is a stunning colour - don't usually do pink but love this one.

Lynne L said...

Hi Sue Fabulous dies the triple layer dies are fabulous I love the rose card gorgeous colour
Difficult to choose a favourite song I love so many but the first one that popped into my head was When a man loves a woman by Perry Sledge But maybe if I was stranded on a desert island Help by the Beatles would be appropriate! !

KarinsArtScrap said...

it's gorgeous and elegant Sue

Janet Kemp said...

Beautiful card, love all the shades of pink. I would choose a George Michael song, Jesus to a child, just love this mans voice, so sad he's no longer here, off to craft and put Georges album on, have a good day Janet K.

Susan Battensby said...

Love your rose coloured card, I've not heard of felt mark texture card before, will have to look that up.
Nutbush City Limits by Tina Turner has always been a favourite of mine or possibly All Right Now by Free, can't choose between them.
I think we might all be giving away our ages a bit depending on our choice of music! LOL!

Anonymous said...

Hi Sue, as always a beautiful creation in soft lush colours. I think I'd prefer to have a audio book (they last longer than a song) and are what I craft to on a regular basis - I get the best of both worlds - crafting and a book at the same time! WakeyL

jean.phillips1 said...

Morning Sue, beautiful card, I have some of that old Rose cardstock but haven’t used it yet. Saving it for best!!! My song would be One Day Soon by Tom Jones. It was the song my late husband Barry had played for me on the radio when he was at sea in the Merchant Navy and was coming home for us to get married. Love Jean xxx

Crafty Cruiser said...

A really lovely card.
My song would be Bridge Over Troubled Waters by Simon and Garfunkel. Many years ago, I had this on a continuous tape and used to play it over and over while doing the ironing, a job which I hated but made more tolerable with this playing!

Kiraneries said...

Hi Sue, a gorgeous card. Very pretty and delicate with the colours dies you have used and the flowers. One song to take on a desert island would be Holding Out for a Hero, Bonnie Tyler.

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
Beautiful card, love the Rose cardstock. And the Vivian die, Matilda goes to frame it beautifully.
My song if I got stranded: I heard it on the Grapevine performed by Tina Turner at the last show in Wembley (before it got pulled down, as a fitting end to her big concert. Boy that was a magical night.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I love this card and I am not surprised that you turn to the Old Rose cardstock so much, it is gorgeous. Well you have certainly got me thinking about a song, there are just so many that I love. Anything by The Carpenters, The Beatles or Johnny Mathis' 12th of Never would do but my all-time favourite is House of The Rising Sun by The Animals. The organ intro gets me every time. It is interesting seeing other people's choices and just proves that there really is a song for everyone.


scrAPpamondo said...

Adorable and so sweet!

Pauline Austen said...

Hi Sue, I will always love you by Whitney Houston, is one of my favourite songs. It's rather like some of your dies ....... , there are so many favourites of them too, so I don't know which one I would choose.
I do read your blog instructions and record your shows off tv and thanks to you, my cards have improved a lot.
Haven't got the dies which you've used today but the card is beautiful. The new coloured card is so pretty.
Have a good week and are you going to let us know your favourite song?. Hugs xx Pauline

A most beautiful card, one of the type I just love to make for someone special, love the colour combination you have used....'Power of Love' by Jennifer Rush is one of my old time favourites, for a specific event in my life....thank you Sue...luv Ursula xx

SuzzieQ said...

Another beautiful Sue Wilson creation today. You never disappoint. I do appreciate the time and efforts you go to for us crafters to share your vision of design with your line of dies and embossing folders, etc as well as sharing card design creations. I am a better card maker because of learning from you. I am with you on the Old Rose colored card stock. It's so dreamy. If I was stranded on an island the song I would play over and over again would be "You Look Good" by Lady Antebellum. This song makes me smile and I can not help but dance. I just get lost in the rhythm and lyrics. As "they" say: "dance like no one is watching!" I can just visualize me dancing down the beach at the water's edge. Unfortunately the radio station I listen to is no longer playing this upbeat song.

Bargain B said...

Hi Sue brilliant card as always anything that lional riche or simply red sing but flying without wings is always a favourite just like all your dies x

dj from kettering said...

Pat L said...

Hi Sue
Beautiful card, I’ve had no luck getting the Old Rose card yet seems to be out of stock on my go to online craft shop. My song for life is Thank you for the Days by the Kinks followed closely by In My Life by the Beatles, I wonder what your song is!!

Love and hugs to everyone

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. If I were stranded on a desert island, I think the song would have to be "Rescue Me".

Today's card is pretty in pink. I would have to say that I do love the colours of the new card and they do suit your triple layer dies enormously.


Lynda's craft's said...

Hi Sue love today's card the new colours are beautiful so are the dies.
My song would be Hay Jude by the Beatles or any of their songs I would love with me.
Love Lynda xx

lindagrady said...

Great question; thought you were going to ask what craft item would you have to have; lol, lol. So fun reading all the different songs people would play, very few duplicates. First song to come to mind is Amazing Grace.

Such a pretty card, Sue; love the soft colors.

Jackie Durrant said...

Love the colour choice for your card Sue. As for music my mind went blank initially!! But coming back and rereading your question the track that came into my mind was Kashmir by Led Zeppelin. I like a bit of noise!!

Patricia Howarth said...

Hi Sue, This is beautiful !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

A beautiful card today and a glorious pairing of color with the new Feltmark card. This color combination is the best of the group in my opinion. They all work so well with the Triple Layer dies.

My song would be "One Moment In Time."

Have great day.


CCM said...

Happy to see a card where you have used Matilda (the die set I won). Lovely design and colors. The Old Rose color reminds me of one my favorite songs:La vie en rose - Edith Piaf.

Hugs from Toronto

theresa w said...

Hi Sue and lovely wilsonettes x
Beautiful card Sue x love the colours and am lucky to have the dies too so really appreciate the inspiration as I do every day x thankyou so much Sue x sorry for not commenting the last couple of days but 'boomerang ' kids have kept us very busy !
As for a song choice , really difficult but Tennessee Whiskey by Chris Stapleton is the first one that pops in my head ,not that I'm much of a drinker mind ! I'm sure if you ask next week it will be totally different x I do hope you will reveal your choice x
Theresa w in Berks xxx

Betty McAlister said...

Beautiful card Sue and I'm loving the new pink. I've lots of favourite songs but guess Wind Beneath My Wings by Bette Midler would be tops at present xx

ahappycrafter50 said...

Love this design and colour.
My song would be ‘Here’s to life’ by Shirley Horn. My husband left it in the CD player when he died so always reminds me of him.

Hi Sue
Lovely card today. The dusky rose is a real favourite of mine!
Fly me to the Moon is one of my many favourites but also love One Moment in Time!

CraftyJo said...

The one song which I love (and play over and over on my sat-nav whilst riding my motorbike) is 'Kindling' by Elbow with John Grant. A love song written by Guy Garvey for his fiancée/wife while they were living apart in London and Manchester.

sued99 said...

What an absolutely beautiful card.
I love anything by Cat Stevens and would find it hard to pick an absolute favourite from his works. X

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, sorry not been on blog for a few days, been on a parchment retreat, only got back last night, the wifi signal was almost non existent. But I have managed to see the pictures but not read the blog.

This sample using the lovely 3d dies is gorgeous, love the colours you have chosen, brilliant.

The first song to spring to my mind was, "We'll meet again", it ties in with the sentiment, and was and still is our families favourite song.

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

Sandra said...

Just like your gorgeous dies, it's impossible to pick a fav9rite. Islands in the Stream by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton would be a fun choice if stranded on an island. Amazing Grace is a song I also love.

DeCor said...

I want to fall from the sky. By Simply Red.
That's a tough ask! I can't get a good idea of the felt mark textured card from the pictures. I am intrigued's a very pretty card.
