Present Tree

Hi bloggers!  After the whirlwind that was Ally Pally, I am jumping back in the saddle to get ready for the next set of shows that I am doing.  There is a Spellbinders POTD this evening, but Creative Expressions isn't doing those shows (I hope I still have a job demoing! LOL)  I do have three hours scheduled for Sunday the 30th.  I will be doing the tool shed from noon until 2pm and then an hour at 5pm.  I hope you will save your pennies for them as there are exciting new dies and the new A4 size embossibilities too on the shows.  I am very excited about these and have some lovely samples to show.  Don't forget to put it in your diaries.  I will give you a sneaky peek later on in the week.  For today's card, it is a really easy card which really doesn't need a detailed explanation.  I have simply used the small present from the Frosty Forms set, added the swirly bow from the set to it and created a Christmas tree of presents.  I used some of my favourite gold decorative card (which was purchased in Florida at Hobby Lobby), but it just looked like it would make lovely wrapping paper for my pressies.  The background was created using the Lattice embossing folder designed by Sam Poole.  These were supposed to have been on the last shows, but the stock did not arrive in time.  We will have them available very soon though if you are looking for it.  I added a small 3mm black pearl to each of the bow centres on the presents as an accent.  You can see these better in the close up below. I added a double bow at the bottom, tied from the satin edged frilly organza ribbon.  I added a fancy button from my stash to the centre.   I added some 5mm black pearls to the corners as an accent and pierced the edges to complete the card.  Great card if you have lots of scraps to use since those pressies don't take but a bite size piece of decorative card!  All for now, Sue x

Always wanted to be first! Love these little parcels, they would be good for loads of occasions, not just Christmas. I thought we would be seeing you today on C&C, but OK, we will wait for you on the 30th.

Hi Sue, I have just bought the Frosty Forms so will be able to make this card. I also have some beautiful gold patterned card which will made lovely pressies, oh fingers are itching. Sad to her you are not on POTD tonight it won't be the same without you, will have to wait to the 30th :(.

Morning,

As you say quick and easy but it looks so chic and elegant. Really like this creation.
Have put the 30th in the diary and warned the credit card....lol
AS FOR YOUR JOB PRESENTING SPELLBINDERS WOULD NOT BE WHERE THEY ARE WITHOUT YOU - YOUR AMAZING IMAGINATION AND TALENT - SPELLBINDERS AND C&C SHOULD REMEMBER THAT.
Well thats my rant.

Morning Sue

Another easy but very effective card, I love it! So glad I bought that set of dies and I have an embossing folder like that too. Don't think you would ever lose your spot on C&C, you are just too popular Sue! I already have 2 of the A4 embossing folders and love them, no more trying to line up, so hope you will have some on the show that I don't have (nos 2 & 3). love Jean x

Val in Spain xxx said...

Good Morning Sue. Lovely card. As you say, great for using those little bits of card that are so lovely you can't throw them away. Was looking forward to seeing you tonight but never mind see you on 30th.

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, Another beautiful card today, lovely colours, the embossing folder is beautiful and that paper you got from Hobby Lobby on the presents is gorgeous. Such a great 3-D holiday tree, truly beautiful.
Looking forward to seeing you on the 30th, we all look forward to seeing your demo's Sue.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

GM Sue - so Sunday is 'Sue in the Shed' - well it has a certain ring to it! On the plus side its for 2 hours though! Will vid Sunday's progs as we are away for the weekend so will miss you live which is a pity as all the good stuff will have sold out by the time we return!

Have already got the A4 Dainty Dots folders - its lovely - think I will buy all A4 folders from now on.

Either you or Julia mentioned you can get a smaller set of plates for the GC - if so where from?... I think this would be handy when cutting small things like presents and bows etc.. Love the design of this card - simple yet so effective.

Debbie Tinks said...

Lovely card sue must try thanks

Lynne M said...

What a fantastic card, just when I think I have all the dies I need, oh well I'll have to tell hubby its your fault again Sue!!!!. Look foraward to seeing you on the 30th.
NOTE TO SPELLBINDERS & C&C, doing shows without Sue demoing ( except when visiting mom) is NUTS. I only watch when Sue is on because I know Sue will show ways of using dies to get the most value out of them and her cards are always brilliant. It was watching Sue demo that got me started collecting the dies and purchasing a GC. So come on sort yourselves out and make sure that it is Sue that brings us spellbinder shows. ( rant over) Lol Lynne M

Heather T said...

Good morning Sue
I am so disappointed that you are not doing the POD show I have been really looking forward to it, I will have to record the show on Sunday because I am away. I love today's card you have great imagination I would never thought to make a tree out of parcels. I have so many scraps that I could use for the parcels.
Hugs x

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
I cannot believe you are not doing the POD. Anyway will be tuned in on Sunday. What a great idea using the parcel die to make a tree. My scrap box is overflowing so thank you very much for ther inspiration. I do like the look of the background folder.

Lara B said...

Good morning Sue
Lovely card, liking your gold decorative card and the 'ribbon' die on the little parcels.
I love the embossed background & the layout...I must admit, I didn't realise at first that the layout of the parcels was in the shape of a tree (stupid here)!
Your actual ribbon always adds that gorgeous finishing touch!
Looking forward to Sunday's shows!
Have a great day...ignore the weather!

I loved this card when it was shown on C&C.
I have had a very traumatic morning dealing with falling trees now I read that you will not be doing POD.... OMG!! What is this world coming to!!!??? Please tell us all that this can`t be true.
Spellbinders would not be where they are if it was not for you and your fantastic talent.
Hope you can have a Great Day

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a Pick of the Day show without Sue? That's sacriledge! No chance you would be out of a job, your legions of fans wouldn't allow it. Most disappointed we won't be seeing you tonight but will look forward to Sunday instead. I liked this card when I saw it on TV and have been swithering about the Frosty Forms for days (I especially like the reindeer) so by the time I decide to buy they will probably all have sold out.

amelia mc kinlay said...

Good afternoon Sue
What a lovely card saw it last week on your show I was wondering how I could make this card as I haven't got the die so I think I shall put it thrugh my cricut and cut so many squares. Have to get the old brain going to see what I can use for the bows
Thought I would see you on today. I think if it was up to all of us e would have you on every day, but you need a break from us HA!HA!

Hi Sue,

Lovely card (again). Black and Gold is such an opulent combination I think - and what a wonderful idea to make a tree of presents. Never would have thought of using that insignificant little square this way.

hazel said...

Beautiful card Sue.I have the Frosty Forms . will have to try this design..As for the 30th have put it down on my calender and as for your Spellbinders Demos on C&C you just have to do them no one else can make and demo cards like you can.C&C know this also as every time you demo they sell out fast..x

I am so shocked that you or Julia are not doing the POD tonight. You are a fantastic ambassador for Spellbinders and do feel sorry for the person doing the show as they are going to be compared to you!!! Never mind Sue C&C wont know whats hit them if they ever try and replace you.
Looking forward to seeing you on the Tool Shed.

I've just purchased a Grand Calibur and was watching some shows today when it was mentioned that you need a white embossing plate for some of the other folders. I purchased the raspberry plate along with my machine but didn't realise I was going to need another plate for other folders. Can you please expalin this for me Sue? Thanks.

Woo hoo, for once I already have the lattice background and have used it a lot on my cards. Not used it for a few weeks but I think it'll be coming back out of the box. Lovely card!

This is my first time i visit here. I found so many entertaining stuff in your blog, especially its discussion. From the tons of comments on your articles, I guess I am not the only one having all the leisure here! Keep up the good work.
