May Your Day Be Filled With Sunshine


Hi crafters!  I have a beautiful autumnal card to share today!  I started with a piece of white Yupo card and used Red Pepper, Sunshine Yellow and Citrus Alcohol inks all over it.  I added a couple of drops of Ranger blending solution to a blending tool with felt to add some unique blending of the colours.  Once dry, I used the Leafy Frame die to cut it.  This did take several passes through the die cutting machine o get through the thick coating on this type of card.  I added mounting foam to the back to raise it for dimension.  I used an old JustRite stamp that I had with Black Archival ink.  I stamped it in the centre of a piece of white card, then added the frame over it to centre it in the middle of the frame, then trimmed away the excess card.  I completed the card with a white on white mat and layer.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/4" x  7 1/4" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Monday again and what a warm cosy start this is adorable and although the colder weather doesn't suit me I just really love the autumnal beauty and you've caught it magically in today's inspiration. This frame smiled at me on its launch so it's there with about 40 other dies on my list. Hoping you have a beautiful day xxx

Today’s card is beautiful Autumn/Spring are my favourite seasons so anything with an Autumnal colour is a winner for me. I haven’t tried Yupo card yet so something to go on my list.

Morning Sue,
This is a lovely frame and shows autumnal colours at their best. Having just returned from the Lakes, we walked among fallen leaves just like these. So uplifting!
Still haven't managed to source Yupo paper yet.

Good Morning Sue.
A beautiful card with beautiful Autumn colours.Reminds me so much of my 23 years in Canada.
I wonder what made you use Yupo paper/card and wish there was a forum where these questions could be asked.
Anyway Sue the card is truly beautiful and I do appreciate your blog every day.
Hugs.

Wow what an amazing card the autumnal colours are superb

Scottydog said...

That is beautiful. That was my favourite die on your last launch, it does all the work, nothing else needed bar the greeting. I must order that & find somewhere selling Yuppo paper as the effect is lovely. Thank you Sue for your inspiration.

prairiecraft said...

I really loved reading your blog. It was very well authored and easy to understand. Unlike additional blogs I have read which are really not tht good. I also found your posts very interesting. In fact after reading, I had to go show it to my friend and he enjoyed it as well!

Hi Sue,
what a fab card that is.
I have this die and alcohol inks but no Yupo-paper.
I will try this with something different.
Thanks for giving me the idea.

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. What a really lovely card. Love the die and love the colours you have used - now if I could just master the alcohol inks on yupo paper technique I should be able to make something similar.

Susan Battensby said...

Wow what a stunning autumnal card today. I just love this time of year with all the wonderful leaf colours.
Must try some Yupo paper sometime but am sure the same effect could be achieved on photo paper.
Love the colours you have chosen and the white background just sets it all off perfectly.

Love it and just got this die.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, this card is glorious. There is a sycamore tree in the street outside my window and it is showing just these colours and the leaves are already falling. I love the effect you have got with alcohol inks and Yupo paper and the leafy frame was one of my favourites from that release.

For anyone searching for Yupo paper, C & C have some in stock.

Hello Sue,

Autumn has arrived right on this page today. A beautiful card that is so colorful and happy. Love the background that you have created with the alcohol markers and Yupo paper. It's just magical. Not much color in the state of Maryland yet although it is getting much colder.

Have a magical day.

Suzzette Yandle said...

Awesome fall colored design. Your alcohol leaves look like the leaves outside my windows today. The Yupo paper certainly gives an unique design when using the alcohol inks. I have only used the Yupo paper as a background. Your design using this paper with a die cut is a great idea. Thanks for the inspiration.

KraftyKazKardz said...

The inks are so effective - totally evokes the veins of a leaf. Wonderful colours too, just a perfect Autumnal card Sue!

Oh my gosh this is beautiful another die on my needed list xx
