Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway


Hello there my crafty friends!  One of my favourite Christmas dies this year is my 2017 Angel so I thought it fitting that I used her as a Wednesday Card Giveaway.  I started with a little bit of pixie powdering to get a heavenly background for her.  I tapped Midnight Blue, Purple Twilight and White Pearl Pixie Powders on to coconut white card, then spritzed with water to activate them.  You can either allow them to dry naturally or set them with a heat tool, your choice.  I used the background to cut the twinkle stars into it and add a touch of detail.  I created a frame by using the outer and inner cutting dies from the Twinkle Star Background and cutting a coconut white frame.  I taped the die into the frame and laid it on top of an open embossing folder.  This one was Twisting Holly embossing folder.  Do not close the folder, but place a tan rubber mat over it with the cutting edges facing upwards away from the folder, add several sheets of card or paper to shim it and place the raspberry adaptor plate on top of the shims and pass it through the machine.  While still in the die, I lightly ran some White Pearl gilding polish over the embossed areas.  I added mounting foam to the back of the frame and attached it over the pixie powdered background.  I cut the Christmas Angel twice out of white card.   I just used the wing from the second one and added it to the whole angel to make her look like she had two wings showing.  I added her with mounting foam to the centre of the frame.  I created two poinsettias out of vellum using the Classic Poinsettia die set and rubbed the edges with White pearl gilding polish to give them a light iridescence.  I seated them on the corner of the frame and accented with Holly Swirls cut in white.  The card was completed with a simple white on white mat and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 1/2" in size.  Leave a comment to be included in the drawing to win this one.  The winners name will be announced on Saturday's blog post.  All for now, Sue x

Gorgeous card Sue, lovely, I love the Angel. What a great giveaway.
Welcome back Meg, nice to hear from you. So glad that Leo has grown well and strong., they are delightful at that age.
Karen, take it easy and rest your ankle. I hope you are not in too much pain. What is the operation they are planning.
Denise, I too am not confident with stamping so I have a stamp press, makes it so much easier.
June hope Craft Club goes well, sounds so much fun.
Sharon please be careful, you don't want a set back although I know you get a sense of achievement when it looks nice.
Elaine,Meg has taken to hiding in Jacks bedroom, they live in a 3 story house and the boys have the top floor. There is a baby gate on the bottom stairs to stop the puppy getting up, she is really not happy with the new intruder. I hope Andrew and Helen continue to be well. How is Jihn and have you made progress with your entrance problems.
Yvonne, nice to see you, hope you start to recover soon. How is Laine, have you heard from her. Pass on my good wishes please, tell her we miss her.
Daily hugs to all, especially our poorly and missing friends.

Hi Sue
Good Morning someone will be so lucky to win this beautiful card.Your 2017 angel is just wonderful,love that she is smaller this year.The background and frame makes this card special.I love it.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, such a beautiful card today, how I would love to win this, the angel is gorgeous, it was the first die from the 2017 collection that I bought, I have all of them and think they are all fantastic.

Pam I reiterate all you have said, and yes I am off to my craft group today. I also agree that the stamping press (most versions) that are out there really are useful to people who have trouble stamping, I have never looked back since I bought mine, I do have some different ones because it depends on what I am stamping and the size of the card. There are a lot of them on the market nowadays, I have my favourite one though. Here is a little tip I heard recently, if you have the 'TH' one I found that my stamps were not coming out properly, so get a piece of funky foam and put this on the base (where the magnets go) to create a cushion and hey presto problem solved, it just needs an extra bit of cushioning.

Well off to get ready now and pack my bag.

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

Hi Sue
This is such a beautiful Christmas card , i love it !

Pam , poor Meg i expect she may get used to it in time lol, Andrew is at the Hosp today for bloods and seeing the consultant tomorrow ,he has had a really rough fortnight this time .
John has heard nothing yet, i did phone last week to ask how long is it before John will be seen, i was told , the message will get passed on to the consultant .
I was told to have the door up graded would be far too expensive , well they are not going to like me because i am not going to give up yet.

Have a very busy day today so i will echo Pam as usual .
Take care
Big hugs to all

Hi Sue,

I have to agree with everyone else, this year's Angel is your best one yet, she's absolutely beautiful and perfectly placed on that twinkly Pixie background - I do like the extra deep frame you've put around her and the poinsettias are always a winner especially when cut out of vellum.

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
I just love this year's Angel too! ( Yorkie Girl! - I have the stamp too and there is a lovely sentiment stamp with the Angel !).
The Pixie background looks gorgeous Sue. I will need to try that . I have several Angels cut out but will copy your wing tip too!! She is so elegant! Love your frame and vellum poinsettias too! Everyone will want to win this one I think! All the best everyone!
Thanks Pam as always! Poor doggie - he has found a safe haven away from " the interloper!" Hope he comes round as the puppy calms down!
Good to see you Yvonne - sorry you are struggling a bit just now! Love to Laine if you are speaking to her on the phone! We miss her too. It's been a while now.
Elaine - hope all goes well for Andrew this week and he gets over this round of treatment fairly quickly. As for the door - well! That's awful!
Karen - I'm so sorry I meant to say I was sorry to hear you'd broken your ankle and it slipped my mind! A lot of things do !! However , I hope it isn't too painful and that the swelling goes down soon!
Love to everyone,
Myra ( Friend of Maureen!) xxx

I Love How You Created Your Very Impressive Background Using The Pixie Powders On Coconut White Card
Once You'd Tapped All The Powders You Required, You Then Spritzed With A Little Water To Activate Them
(This Is When The Magic Begins, Stand Back To Be Amazed)
Sue, You Mentioned That You Could Leave To Dry Naturally Or With A Heat Tool, I Prefer To Leave Overnight
Doing A Few Sheets At Any One Time, Then You Took Your Pixie Powdered Background To Cut Out The Twinkle Stars
Adding A Touch Of Detail.
Sue Then You Created A Frame By Using The Outer/Inner Cutting Dies From The Twinkle Star Frame Background
Using Coconut White Card, You Then Taped The Die Into Frame Laying It On Top Of The Twisting Holly Embossing Folder
You Didn't Close The Embossing Folder, But You Placed A Tan Mat Over It With The Cutting Edges Facing Upwards
Away From The Folder.
Then You Added Several Sheets Of Card/Paper to Act As A Shim, Then You Placed The Raspberry Plate On Top
Of The Shims, You Passed This Through Your Machine, Then Whilst Still Within The Cutting die, You Lightly Ran
Some White Gilding Polish Over The Embossed Area, Sue, You Added Mounting Foam To The Back Of Your Frame
Then You Attached It Over The Pixie Powdered Background.
You Then Cut Out The Stupendous Christmas Angel Twice In Coconut White Card You Used The Wing From The
Second One Adding It To The Whole One To Make Her Look As If She'd Two Wings Showing.
You Placed Mounting Foam To The Back Of Her Then Placed Her In The Centre Of Your Card, You The Created Two
Splendid Poinsettias Out Of Vellum Using The Classic Poinsettias Die Set, Once Formed You Added A Touch
Of White Pearl Gilding Polish You Added Pearls Within The Centre Of Your Poinsettias, Then Placed Them To The Corner
Of Your Exceptional Card Also Adding The Beautiful Holly Swirls Cut Out In Coconut White Card For Accents
You Placed Your Tremendous Background Onto Your Coconut White Famous/Signature/Piercing Using The Acrylic Glue
Then A Coconut White/Coconut White Mat/Layer.
Sue, Thank You For Sharing Today's Extremely Exquisite Beautiful Card You've Really Inspired Me I Truly Can't Begin To

Oh, such a marvelous card design. The pixie powder background for the angel is perfect. Thanks for reminding me I can emboss while the paper is in the die cut - without closing the embossing folder. I keep forgetting I can do that and I really like the look of it.

Littlelamb said...

Beautiful card Sue . Great freebie card.I don't have these dies yet but thinking I must get them soon before it's too late. Echoing Pam's comments. Have bought a new craft table today. It folds like an ironing board (sorry to use that word) and has different heights. It's 50cm by 70cm so not too big but also not too small. Will be useful for my die cutting machine as the other one was a bit wobbly. More rain today so think it will be crafting.

Crewe Trish said...

Hello Sue
I think I must be the only one who is not a fan of angels they don't say Christmas to me but I love how you have created this card.
Well another roasting day I hate the heat so sitting in the shade with an iced tea the family take it in turns to keep me company.
Elaine I hope Andrew soon feels better and the consultant is pleased with him.It is terrible that they are refusing to do anything about your door problems may be your MP can do something.Pam thank you for keeping me up to date.Rosemary and Donita hugs

Afternoon Sue,just got back from a four hour walk in the pouring rain. Everything was soaked through.Had a warm shower, a lovely quenching beer which will be followed by a glass of wine after having looked at today's offering on your blog. Beautiful Angel which cuts brilliantly and your stamp, frown a couple of years ago makes a lovely watermark background. Vellum poinsettias just finish it off. Hugs xx P Austen

The only thing that would make this better is for this card to be on its way to me! I would make a special shadow box to keep her spotless and save from sunlight while still being able to look at her daily and pinch myself to make sure that I am not dreaming!

Good morning Sue. I think that everyone (including me) has fallen in love with this card. Such a pity I don't get your Wednesday posts until Thursday. Anyone on here know why?
I'm planning on buying one of those stamping tools in the coming week and hopefully will find a tutorial on U-tube. Maybe I should find the tutorial first eh?
Blessings to all
