Good Saturday morning.  I had a wonderful package of Susan Tierney Goodies in the mail today when I got home from work.  I was especially excited to play with Susan’s Door and Wreath set

Here’s what I came up with.

I applied ink to the inside of the embossing fold with my brayer and embossed the paper placing the top of the embossing folder face down on my Big Shot.  I wanted the brick to be light and the mortar to be a little darker. I attached the brick embossed layer to the card base.  I embossed the door and decided to cut it out so I could pop it up with mounting tape on the brick layer. I liked the door being offset and allowing more of the brick to show on one side.

I cut the petals to create my rose and assembled it following the steps in Susan’s rose video.  I punched a few branches and cut some of the smallest ivy and attached to the door with glossy accents to create a floral spray for the door. I attached tails of pink ribbon to add another element of softness. Here’s a closer view.KC Sizzix Door and WReath Set 1 side

I added a nob to the door using gold paper pen for the finishing touch.  I love that stuff.

I have not heard from Fran Ferguson to claim her blog candy gift.  I don’t have an email to contact her.  If anyone knows how to contact Fran please let her know to contact me at If I haven’t heard from her by Sunday evening I will do another random drawing for a new winner and announce it at the beginning of the week.

I hope you have a great weekend.  Take some time to create and get your fingers inky.  Thanks for stopping by.
