Friendship Isn't Just One Big Thing


Hi bloggers!  I know that it is always a bit disappointing to go back to one post per day after the blog launches, but I thought I would share another card sample from the January release.  I started with two pieces of coconut white card at once and cut the Friendship All In One.  I kept the top die cut as it always cuts all the way through, but the bottom die cut doesn't.  The bottom card mostly just cuts the outer edge and leaves a deep impression of the die.  I used this one to add the colour.  I used Distress Markers from yellow, to orange to pink to red and deep red and blended them all the way down the design.  I did colour in the leaves with Peeled Paint.  I coated it with spray glue, then added the die cut on top and filled in the remaining exposed adhesive with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz.   I added it onto a white shadow.  I cut the die again and nipped out all the large flowers, then curled them up and added pearls to the centres and glued them back over the flowers in the design.  I made a white embossed background using the Rose Bed embossing folder  and added a multi layered white frame using the Double Stitched Rectangles.  I seated the die in the middle of the frame and completed the card with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x 8" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Hi Sue
I don’t think this blog could ever be described as ‘disappointing’! And today’s card certainly doesn’t disappoint x
Those colours are stunning and blended so beautifully and that sentiment is so true.

Morning Sue.
Thank you a very pretty card.
Sue please don't think I am being cheeky or ungrateful for all your lovely work,
I make my cards for the local charity shop and, they have asked me for New home cards,
Just a thought for the next collection, a new home frame or just a expressions die thank you.
I have been through all your sets and cannot find a new home set.
Take care and have fun Kitty.

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
This is a lovely card, I love the background, and I hadn't realised that the die cuts out at the top but not at the bottom. This gives even more versatility to it.
Great thinking.

This is a lovely sentiment & one we can all use. It makes for an excellent last minute card as it is an all in one die & can just be prettied up as time allows. Lovely colours for such a drab day. Thank you Sue.

Sandra said...

Okay, this is a favorite saying of mine and you’ve gone and made it a die cut! How cool is that! As I’ve said before z, my favorite card to send just let’s the recipient know I’m thinking of them. This die set is perfect to let me friends know how much I appreciate them! I’ve added it to my “must have” list! Once again, thank you for your beautiful collection!

Suzzette Yandle said...

Beautiful card and beautiful sentiment. You surprised me with your background behind the sentiment - embossed AND glitterbitz. Nice ombre coloring with the Distress Markers. I would have thought the markers on the embossed area would have flattened the emboss.
