Love

Hi crafty friends!  I am really hoping to redeem myself with today's card after yesterday's flop!  I love the soft muted dusty rose and greys in this one.  It is actually one of the samples for today's shows but I cheated a bit and used the Grand decorative Circles and they aren't on the show so I won't be demoing this one.  However, what I really wanted to show was how you could use basic Christmas type dies and create a card that you could use any time of the year.  I cut a Holly Motif out of pale grey card then I cut a frame using the smallest sizes of the Grand Decorative Circle dies.  I glued them both to matching decorative paper for my background, cutting away the lower portion of the Motif.  I  stamped the word "Love" inside a bit off centred to make room for my flowers.  I embossed the sentiment with silver powder.  I matted this piece on to dusty rose card .  I cut a larger piece of pale grey card and embossed the Holly Accent border at the bottom.  I used a light inking of Pumice Stone distress ink to bring out the embossed pattern.  With my background sorted, I started work on my flowers.  These are the Layered Poinsettia dies, but I have assembled them using the same technique that I used from the Blossom Five dies last month.  I formed an inner bud to the flowers, then added slightly larger dies for the outer parts to the flower.  They don't really look like poinsettias, but I'm not sure what flower they actually do resemble.  I like them though, and now you can hopefully look at your Christmas Poinsettia and think about it for year round use too.  I did two flowers, one slightly larger than the other and added a few leaves too.  I had a bit of fun using the Cherry Blossom dies too as twigs for accents for the flowers (I just love that set!)  I finished the card with Cosmic Shimmer silver PVA glue dots around the edges.  I got a little snap happy with the camera on this one so there are quite a few different angle pics for you too.  What do you say, did I redeem myself? LOL 
Don't forget to tune in to today's shows at 8am, 11am and 3pm and Julia's shows on Thursday at noon, 4pm and 7pm!  All for now, Sue x

This is such a pretty card, Sue and the flowers are gorgeous, they remind me of wild roses. Good luck with todays shows.

Heather said...

Lovely Sue, so pretty and feminine especially the roses. I love the background too!

Don't be disheartened Sue by comments you can't please all the people all the time :) You do very well and are a tremendous inspiration to us all and even when colours don't suit we can take your ideas and try other shades. Thank you!

Good Morning Sue,
Love, Love, Love today`s card, this is really singing to me.
The idea of yesterday`s card was beautiful I think the colours were just a bit different. You know what they say "you cant please all of the people all of the time" however you certainly do please most of us every day. Thank you for sharing your wonderful talent
See you at 8am on TV
Have a Great Day

Hi Sue, yesterday's card was lovely just the colours were overpowering. This one is soft and delicate. It's great to see how Xmas dies can be used in other ways.

Val in Spain xxx said...

Good Morning Sue. Such a pretty card today. The roses are exquisite. Regarding yesterdays card, everyone has different tastes and you can't please all of the people all of the time. You're such a great inspiration and its one of the highlights of my day to see your creations so thank you.

Hi sue, I love this card, the flowers remind me of the wild roses I used to see when I was younger while out walking with my parents. The colours work well together. Looking forward to seeing all the shows today.

Hi Sue
I just love this card, and using any border die would suit any occasion and as for the poinsettia this is not just for christmas and the flowers are divine. Just had a look at next weeks POD and its spellbinders I can hear my bank card crying ha ha.
Have a great day and happy crafting

Hi Sue, this card is really beautiful, love the flowers, and the layout and colours are superb. Bx

Craftyhugs said...

Hi sue. I adore this card! The colours are so girly and subtle but very effective. Saying that I did love the card you did yesterday. It had a vintage feel to it and I thought the colours went well together and that ribbon is to die for. Hope you have a lovely day! All the best sharon xxxx

Celina Dee said...

Wow Sue I love what you did with the flowers. Beautiful.

Karen R said...

Simply beautiful - who would have thought that you could make such lovely flowers with the poinsetta die. I have to try that. Love the colours too so pretty xx

Astrid Maclean said...

Wow, I adore how you have used the various dies on this card! The embossing with the holly accents is super but the flowers blew my mind. Brilliant! Must give that a try very soon, they look amazing!

Jane said...

Sue there is no crafter that gives as much inspiration to their followers. Yesterdays card was something different, not for everyone but that's what makes the world go round. Variate is the Spice of life don't change for everyone.Today's card is amazing, love everything about it. I would never have thought to do that with the poinsettia.

Jane xx

really pretty card love it angxxx

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue,I love this card, the colours are lovely and soft, I always love soft grey and dusky pink together. I can't understand what you have done on the inner part of the larger die, I will have to re-read your instructions ha ha. I love the twigs from the cherry blossom dies, I really need those, I didn't think I would need them but now I know that I do ha ha. I adore how you just emboss with the dies, it is so effective, I still need to try this technique. The poinsettia flowers are stupendous, Sue, you have made a 'new' flower, it is gorgeous.
Looking forward to your shows today and Julia's tomorrow. Lots of love from Patricia xx

Izzwizz said...

Hi sue, I loved yesterday's card and this one is grat too. Glad to see you using different ideas and colour combinations. It would be boring if the crass were all the same. Cherry blossoms is a dab die set. Just bought the poinsettia set so I'm looking forward to having a play, your flowers are wonderful. Maddy x

Carol H said...

Definitely redeemed yourself today, beautiful card, but it is good to see different designs and colours. Love the flowers.

Jackie Calvert said...

Hi Sue, Another lovely card. Yesterdays card was not a flop, believe me. We all have different tastes, but tend to follow inspiration that appeals to us. you have a definative style, so it's not surprising that when you go for something a bit different, you will get a mixed reaction. Flop indeed! if my flops were half as good I'd be well chuffed. Enjoying todays show

Hi Sue, I loved yesterday's card. But today 'flowers' what can I say I am sold already and would not have thought of using the poinsettias like that, they look fantastic.

BRILLIANT Sue,
I would have used the poinsettias anyway, not just for Xmas. But mine would have looked a bit weird, without the inspiration you've given me. Thanks a lot.

Hi sue, Just watched the 8am show. Brilliant!! Loved the look of this card. I am going to have a go at the flowers today. May use a corner rounder on the end of the petals, just to take off the points. I used your tech on some Prima flowers in my stash that were just not getting used. Worked very well and they look like mini Chrysanths. Thanks. Hugs, Carol S.xx
PS.You are redeemed!!!!

magpie said...

This is such a beautiful card Sue, so pretty, feminine & pink! Gorgeous! How can you feel you have to redeem yourself? The world would be a very boring place if we were all the same with the same tastes! We all appreciate the hard work that you do. You post a card on the blog everyday at 6am along with step by step directions & sometimes even a tutorial on how you did it. You do 2 draws for us just for having the pleasure of looking at the cards that you have made. You make cards for the shows that you do, you've got Ally Pally & all that travelling too! Wonder Woman eat your heart out.....! "Thank you" Sue xx Love Karen xx

Yvonne W said...

Hi Sue, lovely card today. Very delicate and feminine. I saw you show it this moring on C&C. I have the poinsettia dies so will be having a play later. Todays card is very different from yesterday's which, although not my cup of tea, after a few tweeks will be. Good luck for the rest of your shows today.

Planetsusie said...

Hi Sue - I had to smile at the start of yesterday's post - you had an inkling that your card would be a 'marmite' one. Never mind though - if we were all the same we would bore ourselves to death!!! I for one like things to be different.

I absolutely love this card today, those roses are the nicest I have seen in a long time. I really think everything about this card is amazing.

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

Hi Sue,
Today's card is G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!!!
Elegant, feminine and fab.
As for Laced Venetians, well, if no-one ever experimented there'd never be anything new. To paraphrase yesterday's sentiment-"We're so Grateful to You".
Off to catch your 3pm show - hope there's something left to buy!
Sue

nikkib said...

I beg your pardon..... all of your cards are beautiful and yesterdays was as lovely as any card you have put on your blog..... personally I loved it, something different in colour and design and which could be used in different ways..... so you do not need to redeem yourself at all..... you are so talented and generous in sharing your ideas with us all. OK, everyone is different and have different tastes, thats why there are so many different styles of cards out there, but in my eyes but the card was not a flop... you are too hard on yourself... loving the shows today Sue and picking up some great tips... x

This card is stunning Sue and only you could think of using the poinsettia die to look as fabulous as this. Another WOW for me, hugs Christine H xx

Hellma said...

Sue what a wonderful card so diffrent from yesterday, although i was not keen on yesterday,s colors i would never say your card was a FLOP far from that infact, your cards are always so inspirational that i for one took some inspiration from the card as i,m sure many people did.

Hi Sue, that's better (hee hee) I really love this card. I haven't got the grand circles but I do have the grand ovals, so I could easily try something similar with the ovals I'm sure. I love the colours, they are really beautiful. Love Sam xxx

Just seen Sue on TV & this blog for the first time & been blown away, am a relatively new crafter & am loving her cards.

Amanda R said...

Hi Sue,

'love' this card and I like that you've shown that the Poinsettia die can be used to make different flowers.

Carolyn B said...

I'm in Canada now visiting family, so missed the shows today, but have just managed to watch the 11pm repeat on the pc. Brilliant show as usual. The card is brilliant, you wouldn't know that the flowers are actually the poinsettia dies.

This is a beautiful card...do you have Utube videos for the flowers?

Vivi Morais said...

Perfect... perfect... perfect again!!! Congrats!!!

Rufus said...

Since I missed yesterday's card, had to go have a look. While the color combo isn't one that speaks to me, loved the laced ribbon. Today's is lovely as well. You always come up with new and different ways to do things. It amazes me how different they are!

Another wonderful card Sue, what great flowers, you would never know they were made with the pointsettia dies if you had not told us, so thanks for all the hits and tips.
