A Few Samples




Thank you for all your support today as the POTW shows today turned out to be a smashing success.  So much so, that I am not certain what I have to demo with tomorrow.  Tune in if you want to see me tap dance!  That should be good for a laugh or two at least!  They are sold out of many items, including the fleur de lis set that I had planned on using on several demos on Saturday and Sunday.  I thought I would show a few of the samples (ones that I had relatively good pictures of being the criteria they were picked by!)  I may be allowed to do bits and pieces of cards using some of the dies that are still in stock.  I will just have to wait and see what we have left to work with by Saturday morning. 

                      If you did decide to go for some of the dies, you won't be dissapointed as it is truly a lovely lot.  I only had a week to make samples with them prior to the show and the ideas they inspired are still coming!  I need more time!  Hopefully they will bring them back soon as I really enjoyed having a play with them.  (Plus I have about fourteen more demos prepared I would like to use too!) 
I will try to get some better pics of the cards and get them up on the blog in the next few weeks though so at least you will be able to get a look at them better.  The car stamps are brillant too and so easy to use.  Remember Fathers Day will be upon us before we know it.  Mums are so much easier to make cards for, but Dads and guys in general always require a bit more thought, don't they?
Oh and by the way, after the show was over, they had me pick an email out of the cup and I picked Julie M Crane's name!  Julie's name was drawn during the last candy contest too!  Julie, I think with your luck, I would invest in a lottery ticket! LOL  But seriously, thank you for the lovely email!  They are sending out the card I demoed using the into the box technique with the Aston Martin car so do let me know when you get it.
                                                                                                      
I've got a very early start in the morning so all for now, Sue x

Lovely cards, Sue! The first one is really elegant! I love it! And the third one with so many layers - gorgeous! The card for a man is really good - I don't like doing cards for men! :-)

Fiona said...

I'm not surprised the stock is flying with your demos as inspiration. Looking forward to the tap dance tomorrrow!

Craftetter said...

Enjoyed the shows but did not managed to get the dies as was out on Friday after the price came down but did managed to get the ribbon - hopefully will be able to next time they are on. Loved your demos - if they were not so good maybe they dies would not have sold out!!

nikkib said...

Your cards are just stunning Sue and I was sorry I missed out on POTW... love the out of the box technique and will definately be using that one...

themessycraftroom said...

Hi Sue, recorded your shows but not managed to watch them yet. Glad it went well. Love your cards especially the last one. Look forward to seeing some more. Happy crafting. Hugs x ChrisB

gill said...

Missed the POTW hopefully they will be back soon .Loving all the demos though

PaulineC said...

Out today so I put the shows onto tape. Only the first one taped for some odd reason, so I am annoyed about that. Hope you are on again tomorrow. It must be very disappointing for you Sue, when you have planned lots of demos that you then cannot use.

LellyJelly said...

Hi Sue,
Love the cards - though I was too late to get the fleur de lis nestie.
Counting down the days to Ally Pally.x

Chaffinch said...

WOW Sue what a whirlwind couple of day - I succumbed and bought the multibuy - thank goodness for flexipay! Would have liked to have had a longer look at the two bicycle cards (the orangey one and the one with the ruffled green ribbon - maybe you will be allowed to post them on here eventually).

Rachelsmum said...

Superb cards again, the pink one is so pretty. Watched you make a flower today with the starlight dies, it looked so pretty. Looking forward to tomorrow's shows. I'd love a Grand Caliber for the large dies but already have a cuttlebug and a cricut - can't really buy another, can I ;) xxxsue

Aurora said...

:( Hope they bring it back real soon as a bundle again....I need them all. Loving your samples as always Sue especially the tonal styles.

bernietom47 said...

Blessings Bernie

Dawn said...

I had recorded the Friday shows, and was surprised to see it was a sell out when I managed to catch up and watch them. I loved the bundle but couldn't really of afforded them all. I absolutely love your demo's and your style of cards, I can see lots of things to try on my own cards. Thank you for your inspiration and hard work, it is appreciated by many. Dawn x

furrypig said...

Managed to watch a couple of your shows this weekend but sadly it doesn't look they are being repeated so can't catch up on the ones I have missed! Assume that's because of so many things selling out! Awesome demos as usual thanks so much xxx

Kathleen said...

all the cards you've made over the weekend are beautiful as always sue. you ar truly inspirational.
i absolutely love the tags and the fleur de lys otifs and accents dies (a well as the parisian accents and motifs, but you didn't have them!) so i'll have to save up i think!
Kathleen Mc xx

Karen65 said...

your cards are always magnificent............what a brilliant creative mind you have :-)

Joanie said...

Been watching the shows and as usual Sue you came up with so many techniques. The cards are brilliant. So many dies to choose from! The green eyed monster appeared! I so envy you getting to play with them all lol.

lemonayd said...

Hi Sue, Tuned in today drooling with anticipation of demos. But no! Total sell out. Although Spellbinders are good, it is your marvellous cards and demo's that do the trick!
Thank you so much for re inspiring me to do some more crafting. Cant wait for the postie to arrive with goodies. Will have the equipment, just need the talent now! lol. How about dvd/book?????? Cheek after all the work you put into the shows.
Thank you so much
Tricia xx

gee.r said...

Hi Sue,I never miss a C&C show when you are on.Your cards are an inspiration,I just love them.I too would love you to do a book or magazine or dvd.many thanks.
Best Wishes,Ger x

Buttons said...

Sue, it's been an absolute joy to watch you 'freestyling' - roll on more sell outs if it means you get time to be able to show us some of your 'tricks of the trade'. It also shows everyone how talented you really are by having to go 'off piste without the aid of a safety net' and still produce stunning results. You are going to need a long lie down!

Jac said...

Amazing shows for us, but it must have been so stressful for you dear Sue. Like others, I watched them all ~ thank you for every moment. You really are such a breath of fresh air to watch, with your beautiful samples & the gorgeous cards you make live.
Jac x

Anji78 said...

What fabulous samples. I love the rosettes on the first card.

xxsquigglesxx said...

I absolutely love that first card. It's beautiful.

Granny P said...

Was disappointed to see that your demos were cut short due to sell outs but you've still given plenty to inspire. All the hints and tips are a bonus.Love the organza roses - so delicate. The red and white of the third card is striking while card two is so wonderfully different.

Uta said...

great cards you made. i like your style.

scrapper said...

Absolutely love the third card - just my style and so beautifully put together.
Looking forward to seeing you at Ally Pally

miislucky said...

Great masculine card and I just love the last one you did. And yes, I did get these too, lol.Hugs, Mimi

KimberleyG said...

Beautiful cards! Love the metal look on the masculine one. The white an d red is very dynamic on the second one and it is also very lacey with the nesties you used.
