POTD Tuesday Night Launch!

Hi Everyone,
I've had two full days back to work on some samples for the POTD show launch tomorrow night at 9pm and then again at 11pm.  Please tell me that someone is going to be staying up late to watch as it will be way past my bedtime!  I will apologise in advance if I yawn through the second show since it starts almost an hour past the time I am usually in la la land!  I've got to say that, even though the past weekend was crazy busy putting the samples and demos together (and fighting my residual jet lag), I am loving these grand dies and had such a blast playing with them!  I have often had ideas for cards that just didn't work right with the smaller nesties.  I love the fact that this industry is so clever and creative with their innovative products.  It is almost as if one day I think to myself wouldn't it be nice to have a something or other, and there it is!  Practically overnight!  Anyways, the card above is one of the demos that I have planned which shows a fun technique you can do with your nesties.  I hope that you will tune in to see.  I really love the yellow and grey of this card.  I am going to try to do this on the first show if they let me.  I have no idea on the price for the Grand Calibur machine, but I do know that it comes with a set of the Grand Nesties dies and the coordinating smaller sized set of nesties too so you will be well on your way.

Great colour combination Sue. I am liking the grand dies too - my bank manager will be complaining as I now have my Cuttlebug, so NEED all the dies!! Good luck for the shows.

Love the way you have set the nesties together. Can you use a cuttlebug with these larger dies?

This is a very elegant card! I love how you use the grands. I'm just getting into the nesties so it'll be awhile before I get to the grands. But, I love looking at yours, lol! Mimi :o)

KimberleyG said...

Such lovely papers you've used. I'll have to check out this new Grand Caliber.

Jayscrafts said...

Loved the technique for this card. So simple yet so effective. Thanks for sharing. Love, Julia xxxx

Hello and a Happy New Year to you all!
I read all the blogs, but nowhere is there a mention of the technique ( the flowers overlapping) used on the card above being done of the Cuttlebug ...I think it is absolutely beautiful, but I have only recently bought my Cuttlebug so will be a while before I catch up with the Caliber.
P.S. I hope Jo recovers well and soon!
Thank you
Love Marg

margaret driscoll said...

I have still not found the solution to my problem (ABOVE).... can anyone stop me from chopping heads off the Roses.. on the card Sue did on 13th December please !Really looking forward to a reply
Love Marg

Ann said...

Beautiful, I kept the show demo I'd recorded on Sky + but unfortunately deleted it accidentally yesterday, pleased to see the card on the blog.
Also, not sure whether you're aware but the Particraft web site isn't displaying correctly on either Firefox or Explorer so can't order anything.

Gorgeous card! I love the rose and how you layered the ovals.
