How 'bout A Few Quickie Cards?

Just had a few minutes to spare so I thought I would post a few more of the cards for the Spellbinders POTW show on Friday .  I picked these two cards because both are wonderfully simple and quick and easy as well, but I think both cards have a lovely appeal.  The large ornament was made using the largest die in that set and gold metal, which is on the show too.  I cut out the ornament (that may be the American word for the English "bauble", not certain, though), then ran it through an embossing folder to put the musical design on to it.  I won't be able to demo that one because we don't have embossing folders on the show, but hopefully you will be able to see the varied potential of these lovely ornament/bauble dies.  I am planning to demo the other card as I feel it is one of those cards that gives you stunning results with very little effort or time.  Just to give you a quick reminder the POTW show starts off on Friday at noon, then Saturday at 9am and Sunday at 8am and 2pm with Jo Channon and my last live show is Monday at 8am.  There are four brand new never seen nestibility bundles and one other bundle that was very popular from the last Spellbinder's show from which to pick.  I really hope you like what you see!  All for now, Sue x

I watched the show and recorded it to see later. WOW! I was hoping you might do your faux leather demo again. I can remember the peeling the paper apart, but can't remember what you did to it first!!

Rachelsmum said...

Wow Sue, just watched the POTW show Sat morning and the sample cards are fantastic - such a variety of styles and so many superb ideas on how to use the nesties (can you guess I loved it?!) I love the snowflake card and think I may have to try a few of them for myself. Thank you so much for showing all your great techniques. xxsue

Zoechaos said...

Beautiful cards, the POW looks fabulous congratulations. Because of work have yet to see one of the shows but have checked out C&Cs site.

Thank you very much for the draw prize that came this morning sorry if I was a bit of a pain just was not sure if you had received my email. Thrilled to little pieces with all the goodies will make very good use of them thank you. xx Zoe

Amanda said...

Just watched the POTW shows, well the fri and saturday ones...very inspiring...I am tempted with the lables besties.....I loved that snowflake card too....would be good for batch making at christmas as its not too time consuming. I have got your polar bear stamps, was going to use those but am now in a dither lol

Great cards and loved the shows

PaulineC said...

Fabulous, particularly the bird. It was also a great tip about rubbing the metal with the alcohol ink blender. I had no idea that it takes the colour off.

xGemmax said...

Stunning cards and beautiful blog!
hugs and xxx

KimberleyG said...

Fab cards, not sure which I like more!

LellyJelly said...

What clever use of the metal. Love the cards.

miislucky said...

Wow again Sue!!! These 2 cards are just gorgeous! I love the embossing on the bauble card (lol) yes, in America we call it an ornament.I love the paper and distressing on bothe cards. Where did you get the stamp for the first one? Hugs, Mimi

Carole RB said...

Hi Sue
Great cards

Lisa J said...

Perfect idea for my Step Mom's Christmas card (The musical note ornament) as she is a music teacher! Just might have to snatch it up to create one for her! Thank you so much!

Stephanie said...

These are beautiful. I especially love the one with the ornament.

Neet said...

Lovin' that ribbon on the top card - love the card too! What a brilliant idea with the bauble - must try that myself.

Auntie Em said...

Wow, these are gorgeous!!! The gold and black music card with the layers is so elegant and the sweet little bird layered with the verse is so delicate and lacy looking with the shadowed stamping! Love them both!
Thanks for sharing! :o)

Meda said...

Wow! I really love the one with music notes.
