Vintage Handbags

Good Sunday morning all!  A simple card showcasing the Vintage Handbag set.  This one could be use for any occasion for anyone who loves handbags (and who doesn't love handbags! LOL)  I selected milk card for the background and cut four of the Rose Spray corners and glued them into place for a tone on tone look.  I cut a smaller square of pink card (from my stash) and embossed it with the Tulip Twist embossing folder for texture.  I added it in a diamond orientation with mounting foam to raise it.  I cut the Daisy Circle out of milk card.  I cut the centre of it out of pink card and glued it in place inside the Daisy Circle.  Next I cut the handbag out of gold mirror card and backed it in milk card.  I added small pearls to the lattice work on the bag and mounted it in the centre of the Daisy Circle with mounting foam.  I completed the card with milk and pink mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  8" in size.

The winners of this weeks Comment Game are:

Laura O'Connor!!!
Marianne's Craftroom!!!
Lynda Mellor!!!

Congratulations all!  Please email me at americansue1@gmail.com to confirm your address and claim your prize.  All for now, Sue x

A very lovely card Sue, gorgeous. Love the handbag.
Congratulations to comment game winners., especially Lynda, such a boost for her.
Another terrorist attack, very shocking, my deepest sympathies to the families of the victims. Our Police,emergency services and nursing personnel are stretched to breaking point, they are marvellous. I pray for all affected by these vile attacks.
Carmen, good thst the Kid is doing okay. So sorry that you are tired, try to rest today.
Elaine, hope you are getting some rest today too, don't want anything happening to you. Hope Andrew and Helen are enjoying their break.
Maureen, should you be weeding, it's a bad position even on the stool for your injury, but you can do mine when you are finished, I'll bring you coffee.
Well apparently work have decided on a risk assessment where I have to move to a different part of the office when Wirk is being done but no one has to,d me. I asked my manager what was happening and she mentioned it but she doesn't know what she us supposed to do. I think ostriches was too good a term for them.
My daily hugs to all, especially our poorly and missing friends, I too hope Wheeley and Laine are okay.

Morning Sue. Thank goodness we have Particraft, this beautiful vintage bag sample, and the blessing of craft as a hobby/interest to take us away from this ugly evil world ! I don't know what I love more about this sample, the background or your new little bag, it's like the Daisy Circle was made to show off these bags, and I'm enjoying using the beautiful circle myself at the moment it's a beautiful little die, thank you.
I'll finish by congratulating out 3 comment winners enjoy your gift.
Love n hugs coming your way Sue on the day our country was violated yet again xxx

Good morning Sue. Gorgeous card, especially love the tone on tone corners - very classy. As for handbags, I'd rather have more of your dies! I understand from Julia's blog that it's a special day for you today so I'd like to send you the very best wishes for a wonderful time.
Congratulations to the comment game winners and also Pussycats for yesterday.
Pam, moving whilst work is going on is not a solution as the dust etc will still be in the air when you get back to your desk, time for the union to get tough!
Prayers to anyone affected by the latest horrific events in London, hugs to all. Sue xxx

Dear Sue and Blog Friends

That little purse looks so realistic! Those must be teeny tiny pearls. Tomorrow I'm going to buy some mirror card and some acetate. My friends and I are at our big papercrafting convention, about two hours away from my house, 90 minutes from theirs. The Big New Thing this year seems to be powders like Pixie Powders. There are lots of different kinds, but I haven't seen ones that burst into several colors like Pixies do.

It's fun bumping into people we only see at conventions and meeting people while standing in line or admiring the same sample or playing with their new stuff in the motel breakfast area. We had a lovely Italian dinner and came back to bubble in the hot tub, then two kinds of cake with fresh strawberries and whipped cream. There are five of us. One is close to her birthday. One has been coming to this convention for 20 years. They are all grandmothers and one is a great grandmother. I'm the odd bird out. They were pretty happy that my perpetual engagement has ended.

Enjoy your Sunday, everyone, especially the three winners, you lucky dogs!

Love,
Donita

Happy Birthday Sue, have a beautiful day.
Your card is so pretty and what wonderful use of the dies.
Pam, I think incompetent, unthinking ostriches should cover it! I have no idea of what I should be doing as I haven't been told not to things, only been told to walk with aids and have been shown some exercises, so I just go for it and if it hurts, I stop!
Elaine, good to read that Andrew is enjoying his fishing however many he caught, thinking of you.
Donita, sounds like a wonderful time at the Convention and the food at the Motel sounds delicious! If your friends were pleased that the perpetual engagement was called off, then you did the right thing as outsiders can see what we can't recognise ourself!!!
Nanna Tina, it's so lovely to see a post from you, sending love.
Love to all who are missing, poorly or lonely and their carers on this very sad day when evil people try to change our lives.

Pam I reiterate everything you have said, you moving is not going to work as we all know dust flies about in the air so you will still be affected, they really need to sort it out for you, love and hugs xx

Happy Birthday...hope your purse gets filled and your day is special.
I wasn't sure about this die (purse), just isn't something I could see using but after seeing YOU use it, well, it really is an adorable embellishment. I do love the rose corners. I seem to be into corners lately and these are wonderful. All together this is a beautiful card that any gal would love to receive so I have revised my take on this die.
I hope everyone here is safe and has a great Sunday.

veecee said...

What a beautiful card and first time I've seen the bag die😁
Help please.....am new to the blog and to using dies. Is there a link anywhere I can go to see dies used and to possibly purchase. Am in the UK so would need site in UK if I wanted to buy.
Last question,is there anywhere on the blog that show cards made with minimum number of dies? Some of the cards are Devine but to buy all the sets used would cost too much for me as a family card maker not a seller of cards.
Thanks in advance for any help and for all the beautiful cards.

Ps Veecee, if you look at yesterday's post just below the video there is a link to a website - Joanna Sheen - there you can order Sues dies and there is also a section where you can see some of her cards and which products were used and also click on a link to see a video of how they were made. Hope that helps, welcome to the blog.

Got a terrible shock when I turned the tv on this morning to hear about the awful events in London again. My thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected and especially to the victims and their families. I despair at times and can't understand why there are such evil people in this world.
Maureen, do take it easy but I was told with my knee that I could do things and stop when my knee hurt. However I did some planting the other day sitting down and a couple of days later my back was hurting as well as my knee! X

A lovely "Victorian" card today with a pretty combination of card. Love those rose corners, they do fit perfectly when you just need something to fill in that corner.

Thinking of those who have been affected by the horrible tragedy yet again in London. Will the day ever come that we feel safe and unafraid again?

Congratulations to this weeks lucky winners.

Hi Sue. Well first I would like to wish you a very Happy Birthday !!! I do hope you have had a lovely day. x x x
I am sorry that I have not been around for a while again but less than three months after loosing our beautiful little Yorkshire Terrier doggie Fudge we very suddenly and unexpectedly lost our beautiful little black and white cat called Charlie Puss. We were very lucky because we had him for about 16 and a half years but I think it was the shock of it all of a sudden and he was such a real character, such a clever little cat. He was a very important part of our family, as was Fudge. We are now grieving for two fur babies. x x x
I love todays card, my favourite part being the vintage handbag die !!! The Rose corner die looks lovely to, as does the Daisy oval die. Thank you for sharing your beautiful card today. I have to say that I really loved yesterday's card and video to. Just gorgeous. Sending you lots of love and hugs and special Birthday Wishes love from Tres x x x

I have had a sneak peak of your new Christmas die release and they are all gorgeous Sue !!! Major new problems for me Sue, I just don't know what to choose. As always, I want them all !!! x x x

Sending lots of love to everyone from Tres x x x

Hello Sue,
First of all, Happy Birthday to you!! I have just about made it!
I hope you have had a lovely day!
Love today's card and I have the handbag Dies and they are gorgeous! Used them several times already! I must say I do like how you have used just one bag as a focal point .
Congratulations to today's winners!
Sorry this is brief again but I'll explain tomorrow! All being well!
Thanks Pam! Totally agree - it's been another day of sadness for so many homes and people from all over the world been caught up in last night's evil. Thoughts and prayers for those suffering, bereaved and for our brave Emergency Services!
Night Night! God Bless,
Love Myra xx
