Sunday, 7 May 2023


Good Sunday morning all!  I pulled out the alcohol inks for this one!  I started with a Silver Sparkle Alcohol ink card base and used Sailboat Blue, Sunshine Yellow, Citrus and Wild Plum alcohol inks applied on the diagonal.  I cut the Noble Baby sentiment out of Black Gloss card then I die cut it out of the centre of the alcohol inked card.  I do have to admit that I misplaced several of the fall away pieces so I decided to add a white backing behind the inked piece and then paper pieced the word cut in black back into the area.  ( I did use the sentiment on another card which you will see at some point).  I used the Double Stitched Rectangles and made a white double layered frame and added it around the sentiment.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 5 3/4"  x  7 1/2"  in size.  All for now Sue x

Hi Sue and all that visit.
Although I love the rainbow effect, my personal thoughts are that it maybe slightly harsh to welcome a newborn, although I suppose it depends on the parents, I'm a 'it's a girl so delicate pink or other pastel shades are made for these happy occasions, it's a lovely design but a little 'powerful' for a new family addition.
Hope everyone who indulged in the coronation yesterday had a lovely few hours and it carries over to today for you xxx

A stunning card today, but like Steph, I think
the colours are a touch too bright for me.

We enjoyed the Coronation, didn't watch all of
it, but what we watched we enjoyed.

Hello Sue
This card is for the newer generation,they like bright colours. I enjoyed the crowning of the king yesterday it was brilliant. Hugs to all that visit today x said...

Morning Sue.
I think the card is brilliant it does'nt have to be for
a new born, my friend calls her hubby baby so it would be
an ideal card for him from her, Thank you for the inspiration.
Take care Kitty.

Hi Sue
Love the vibrant colours of the alcohol ink background and the Noble sentiment makes a statement perfect for the younger generation of parents. Will be travelling home tomorrow so won’t get to comment on the blog

Love and hugs to everyone

Hi Sue
Happy Sunday everyone x
Love the rainbow effect. It is another card that with a change of sentiment would be suitable for so many occasions. Bright and cheery - just what’s needed x
Well I thoroughly enjoyed the Coronation. Watched it all, then watched the highlights, then watched the news with more highlights. What a day x
Take care everyone x
Sending positive thoughts to all x

Hi Sue, apologies for not leaving a comment yesterday, I was so engrossed in the Coronation that I totally forgot. No other country puts on a display like we do, it was fantastic. I did like your tower of presents on the embossed balloons. I usually love your rainbow background cards but like some others I feel that the colours today are a little strong for a baby but maybe that is just my age showing :-)


Steph Cotterill said...

Ohh June I'm so sorry you're not well. You must be feeling awful for you not to comment like you normally do love. Sending gentle hugs and hope tomorrow brings a better day for you. Lots of love xxx

I love the bright colours and the whole effect but think I would use something more traditional for a baby card. X

A bright cheerful post, but to be honest I'm not sure. Love the the concept though and maybe I would use different colours or sentiment.....
