Just a quick post so you have something new to look at and another chance to increase your odds of winning the blog candy contest!  These are a couple more of the samples from the POTW shows last weekend that sold out.  Thank you for all your support with those too.  In my wildest, I would never have expected that outcome so quickly.  So needless to say, I have over a dozen demos that I prepared that I never got to use!  Hopefully they will have it on again when they are back in stock as they are truly lovely dies.  If you were able to get hold of them, you will enjoy them no end.  Like I said, I ran out of time long before I ran out of ideas for them.  The top sample uses the lacey oval die to make a stunning rolled flower, which looks very nice when companioned with the vintage ribbon (also another sell out).
The Timeless Journey stamp set is used on the second sample with Labels eighteen (one of my absolute favourites) as well as the fleur de lis border.  I hope you enjoy them both!  Don't forget to leave a comment so you get an entry into the candy contest.  All for now, Sue x

You did a fabulous job at the weekend, thinking on your feet and putting in early starts to prepare demos for unplanned products. Just shows your expertise. Well Done!

What beautiful cards. I loved the samples at the weekend with the bicycle on (pink card) I hope that you get to do your other demos sometime because it must be alot of work to put together and a bit disappointing to not get to do them.

Papercraft By Carole said...

Great shows. Great cards. Great Spellbinders. The POTW was a bit expensive for me but gave me something to add to my ever growing wish list. Cxx

Buttons said...

And just when you thought it couldn't get any better... ! Wow Sue, these two cards and so lovely. Just shows you the versatility of these lovely dies. Can't wait to see you back on C&C. Oh, and the seashells stamp set; the sentiments really seem to lend themselves to sympathy cards that are just that bit different. You just keep on giving us fantastic products, and long may it continue.

Jac said...

Thank you for a lovely weekend spent glued to all your great progs on c&c. Hope you're enjoying a little relaxation now. Really hope we get to see the demos you couldn't do Sue. The nesties etc etc are great! The 2 cards you've posted here are terrific, thanks. I love them both :)

nikkib said...

Fabulous, beautiful, stunning cards Sue... I wasnt quick enough to get the POTW but I was very interested to see how you made the rolled flowers on TV... Love, love, love the cards and the demos you got to do.....

paperpapier said...

I love those rolled flowers...!!! awesome!

Rufus said...

I like both of these, they're so different in "feel"! Lots of special extra touches. Wish I could see your demo's. Probably just as well, though...easier on the 'ole pocketbook!

Terry said...

Beautiful cards Sue!!! Love the flowers!! TFS

Susanne said...

Wow...Gorgeous both of them... my favorite is the second it´s so cool...
Hugs!

Suzanne said...

STUNNING shows - when you were on and wow did they sell out quick - well done for carrying on and producing new samples and demo`s with new dies as the shows went on - it`s hard to believe you had only done another POTW a couple of weeks before this - so hats off to you. I do hope you get a bit of time to recover
Suzanne x

Craftetter said...

Just stunning samples as usual Sue. I do hope that they get them in soon as I think that the dies are their best yet. I was going to order on the Saturday thinking that there would be plenty of time and could not believe that they had sold out! Next time I will have to be quicker but I blame you as it would not have sold out so quickly if your samples were not so good!!

Karen said...

Thanks for the new card to enjoy - just perfect for the lovely sunny day we're having! Fingers crossed for the blog candy!

Sue - said...

Beautiful cards again Sue. I love those flowers.

Sue said...

Beautiful cards Sue as always. Too bad they sold out so early that we didn't get to see anymore samples. Loved the last show with all the quick put together cards and demos, your a star.
Sue.

Amanda said...

ohh I love the second card, stunning!!!! The first is nice too but how beautiful is the second and not too overdone as some distressed stuff can look at times, nice for the arty folks but not so good for a recipient.

Loved the shows, keep up the good work, its great to see shows with interesting and unique demos.

amanda

Granny P said...

More great samples. I'm quite hooked on these rolled flowers at the minute and using the lacey die just adds an extra touch. Really like the vintagey look of the second card. I've been making quite a wish list since the shows aired. Have to agree that Labels 18 is a favourite.

lemonayd said...

Superduper cards as ALWAYS Sue!! What I like is that they have such different looks. Have been waiting longingly for the postie, but today he came, BUT only some dies arrived, others to follow,BUT..... at least I can start now!! Yippee! Cant wait for your next show and more fabulosus ideas. Thanks again Sue for all the inspiration and more cards to come too!!!

Helen said...

Beautiful cards again Sue! Sorry we didn't get to see all your demos :-( next time I hope!

Dawn said...

Your samples are gorgeous, so different from each other, they show the versatility of the dies. I wish c and c had larger quantities of stock as I would of loved to see all your demos, fingers crossed for next time, until then take a well deserved rest and thank you for sharing your cards with all of us x

Joanie said...

Great cards Sue - as usual. Lots of inspiration. Can't wait to play with my new dies when they arrive.

Barbara Phillips said...

Love the cards, the paper flowers really make the cards that bit extra special. Sue when are you going to make a DVD with all your techniques and inspiration? Im sure it would be a sellout on C&C.

Kate Street said...

Debo said...

I was SO looking forward to a week of your demoes - I ALWAYS enjoy them, your samples are beautiful, your demoes are SO instructive and clear. I was going to record them ALL for future reference (couldn't afford to buy everything I want at once, so will gradually build up my collection, and would need to refer back to your demoes and samples)

I can only hope that C&C get lots of stock back in and you can carry on where you were so rudely interrupted!!!!!!

Vicki said...

stunning cards - love watching all your demos on C&C thanks for all the great inspiration

ang said...

lovely cards really enjoy watching your demos on c&c and trying out your brill ideas ang

THE HOOSIER STAMPER said...

Love your cards very pretty. Love those flowers, did you make them? Soooo pretty!

Josie said...

Gorgeous cards as always, it's nice to see samples we didn't see on tv. Thanks

scrapper said...

Love both these cards which are so different from each other. The colours in the first one really stand out and the toning in the second one is really masculine. Love the stitching on the flower card too - THANK YOU for such lovely ideas

mae said...

Hi Sue!!!Gorgeous cards!!!!!

miislucky said...

Hi Sue, again loving these cards!!! They are very nice!!! I did get these new spellbinders. Thanks for inspiring me. Mimi

KimberleyG said...

Wow, I didn't realize til you explained it that you could use a nestie circle or oval to make a rolled flower. What a simple concept and yet it never came to mind, lol!

Ellie said...

Both beautiful cards, but I like the second one most - all the embellishments just give it the finishing touch...

Sheng said...

OMG, I love both these cards, lovely!
