Happy Birthday Heather!

Morning all!  Today is my daughter's 26th birthday so I have posted this card in her honour.  Although I will be seeing her while on my next trip to the States, I miss not being able to be with her on her birthday.  So I will just have to celebrate it here on my blog with everyone!  Today's card suffered a little mishap, but I think I salvaged it alright.  I started the card by cutting the centre frame out of card with a sticky self adhesive sheet attached to it. I used the middle piece from the Resplendent Rectangles set for this.   I peeled the backing paper off and laid it on my Blue Tiger Gold leafing sheet (aren't those tones just luscious!).  Using a stiff brush and rubbing in a circular fashion, I burnished the foil to the frame and removed any excess leaf (Remember, don't throw it away.  Keep it in a plastic container as you can use the little leftover bits).  I used some Black Soot distress ink to tone down the brightness to the frame and that is where the mishap occurred.  I forgot to clean my craft sheet and the black soot got on my background piece!  I used the largest size of the Resplendent Rectangles to emboss the pattern and the next size down to cut the aperture in my teal card.  Since it was the last piece of card that I had of that colour,(and I had even gotten it on the back so I couldn't just turn it over) I decided to just add a bit more of the black soot and used it with my die in place to bring out the pattern.  I must say that I preferred the demo card without the inked die pattern, but they whisked that one away before I even had a chance to photograph it!  I mounted the background on foam pieces and recessed the gold leafed frame into the centre.  I had stamped my sentiment to put behind it first though.
 I used the lovely swirl from the Jewelled Flowers and Flourish set to cut several swirls of the teal and paler shade.  I used these as corner accents for the flowers that I made (using the six petalled stamp from the Button Floral set).  I matted everything on matching card and pierced the edges for a completed look.  Happy Birthday Heather, I hope you are checking the blog (but we'll skype later too!)  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue
This was the card that made me decide to buy the resplendent rectangle dies ( as if I needed a reason) lol I love the colour and the gold leaf and it is so much easier to do the gold leaf your way than I have been doing it previously. Happy birthday Heather hope you have a brilliant day.

I cant find the 'button floral set' Sue, but the roses look lovely. I wonder if Blossom 5 would look similar.

Great card. Love the gold leaf. Happy Birthday Heather! Love, Julia xxxx

Vee Cassidy said...

Dear Sue
What a beautiful card to celebrate a special day. It is stunningly gorgeous; the colours and gilding remind me of some renaissance art. The design and flowers are wonderful and as for mishaps - some of the greatest works of art have a tiny flaw and in the past tiny flaws were added to things on purpose so as not to upset the balance.
Good wishes to you and Many Happy Returns to your daughter.
Love and Peace, Vee xxxxxx

alimecca said...

Hi Sue
Saw you do this one on C&C and loved it then. Although this one is lovely, I did prefer the one you made on TV without the black soot ink. I have all of these dies so this is one I can attempt but it will have to be with gilding flakes (which I hope work as well). Happy birthday to your daughter as well.

Abuzz With Creativity said...

Happy Birthday Heather! I'm sure your Mom can't wait to speak with you on Skype later :-)

Sue, I just love these colours & thought your demo on C&C was fabulous! I agree that the one you did for the show looked lovely, but this is fine also. We all have little mishaps when crafting & you did a good job of saving this one! That foiling is gorgeous. I wish I'd ordered that also, but saw the demo after my order as I was going out & recorded the shows that day. Placed my order at 12-12.15 mind to ensure I'd not miss out!!! Should of ordered those stamps just for that scrolly Happy Birthday stamp as it looks really nice. I didn't go for those as have so many stamps already. Could do with half a ton of U-mount for them all, but I just ordered 5x lots earlier in the same week from a different show. I've spent a fortune as it is!!! Must go, My son has lots of hospital appointments today. He's on a trip with school, so my daughter & I will join him & whisk him away at the appropriate moment... Claire xxx

I would not have thought of using the teal for the flower as well as the rest of the card but it is absolutely right - that is why you are the master and I am just learning, slowly.
Happy birthday to Heather and many thanks Sue for the lovely set of flower stamps that came as my lucky 'candy'.

I'm very pleased to say that I won the demo card that Sue was chasing after to photograph! I must admit it is more beautiful (if that's possible) in real life as it was on the screen on create and craft. I especially love the foil, mixed with the general teal card colours.

I hope Heather had a super birthday and that you'll be able to enjoy some cake together soon.

I think this might be my favourite Sue card yet! I LOVE the colour and the gilding flakes are just so sumptious. The roses are perfect to finish it off too.

Thanks for sharing, Sue.
