Wonderful Christmas

 Hi everyone!  As promised, here is one of the samples from my show live from CHA in Las Vegas.  This sample shows how pretty it is when you have the stamps and matching dies for your projects.  I stamped a handful of the the holly berry swirl onto milk coloured card.  I coloured them using Distress markers (Forest Moss and Fired Brick).  I cut them out by lining up the matching die (called Ornamental Add Ons) from Heartfelt Creations and taping it into place before running them through the Grand Calibur.  I attached them to a background that I embossed with the Wild Poinsettia embossing folder by Couture Creations.  I added some diamond sprinkles to all the berries for an added extra bling.  To create a focal element, I covered a piece of red card with a sticky adhesive sheet.  I cut it with the Heirloom Ornament 2010, peeled the backing paper off and glittered it with the Diamond Sprinkles as well.    I stamped the sentiment from Heartfelt Creations and cut it out with a circle die and a slightly larger red circle mat for it too.  I used Fired Brick to ink it while in the die.  I added some green to the holly and mounted it in the centre of my ornament.  I matted the piece with a thin red mat and then added my double pierced mat to complete the card. Very traditional (so unusual for me, huh!)LOL 







It's Sunday and you know what that means!  For this weeks winners, we have:
TDQ Karen!!!
Laura O!!!
Hellma!!!

Congratulations!  Please email me at americansue1@gmail.com to confirm your address and claim your prize.   All for now, Sue x

from a very wet and dull Burgundy!!
A truly beautiful traditional C.card for today's gift.
I love the look of these stamps and dies so guess what - yes I feel another purchase coming on - the colours and format are beautiful but for me today it's the sentiment that takes centre stage. These are a must!!

Hi Sue. Gorgeous card. It is very traditional for you but it works so well. Love the diamond sparkle, it adds that extra special bling that Christmas cards can have. Hope you are keeping well. Take care.

Joanna Dickson said...

This is such a stylish Christmas card Sue. I was so tempted to buy these stamps and dies. Was amazed actually as I listened to my heart for once rather than my heart. I'm sure I will invest at some point though.
Congratulations to all the winners, what a lovely fab start to Sunday.
Hope you have a great day
Love

What a lovely bright card. I am not usually a fan of 'traditional' but this could convert me!

Anonymous said...

GM Sue - lovely card - this one caught my eye on the TV of all your samples. I didn't buy the set though as I didnt really want all 6 sets of stamps. I would prefer smaller bundles or pick n mix - £90 to spend in one go is quite alot for most folks I think. Just my opinion though...

Hi Sue - I fell in love with this card when I saw it on tv and also the one you did in white with diamond sparkles. I love the matching stamps and dies and this one is a definite must-have for this Christmas. Thank you for all your wonderful ideas and congratulations to all today's winners.

lydia jordan said...

Hi Sue,
Like Victoria the 2010 Heirloom ornament is my favourite too, and your card is stunning I loved it when you showed at CHA. I also agree with Clare W the bundles are just too expensive for most of us and it would be a good idea to have pick & mix.

Morning Sue, This card is fantastic, I love 'traditional' so this card 'sings to me'. I recorded your show !!! but when I went to watch - the recorder hadn't recorded it - you can imagine the 'air' was 'blue' ha ha, so it is really lovely to see all the cards that you did on the show. I really love these dies and stamps, so effective.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Morning Sue, I loved this card when you showed it, so beautiful for Christmas. I love the swirls. Have to agree with others that these bundles are too expensive to justify buying every time, a pick and mix sounds good. Have a great day.

Jan Caven said...

Hi Sue
It was seeing this card that made me buy the set. I wasn't planning to but my lovely hubby said he would treat me, so didn't need telling twice. I agree with the others that it is a lot to spend when the bundles are expensive and smaller bundles or pic n mix would be great as sometimes you may already have one die from a bundle. The card is stunning and it appealed to me straight away. Right up my alley. Congrats to all the winners. Happy Sunday everyone.
Love Jan x x

Hi Sue
A beautiful card - I love the balance of all the elements. I agree with the comment about the shape of this bauble being the nicest. I've not started my Christmas cards yet but having just booked my next hair appointment for mid-September, I can see how the year is just slipping away! Better make a start.
Best wishes

Hayley Johnson said...

Hi Sue! Hello everyone! Love this card, especially the Holly Berry set. You could go to town with this one in any colour. Just stunning! Have to agree with the other bloggers though, it is expensive buying the bundles. I just love looking at the cards that you make with the mix and match sets. I can honestly say I don't have many of them! But anyway, congratulations to the winners! Enjoy your prizes! Wonderful! xx Love Karen xx

No sooner back online after cable fault than got major virus (or malware as they now say) and had to have the PC stripped and it's just back. So sorry but couldn't comment for days but now on catch up AGAIN!!
Thanks, Sue, for the Vegas pictures - always enjoy others' photos as never go anywhere. Those two works of art are something else.
Now, cards, particularly liked Wednesday's white and Saturday's kraft and today's is just great.
Feel the need coming on!

Hi Sue

I really like the heirloom 2010 die and have been trying to purchase it, with no luck so far,..any thoughts ?

The card today is lovely, I like the foliage and the glitter berries. I think it is the only time throughout the year you can get away with lots of coloured glitter as Christmas is a very sparkly time. Hope you are having a good weekend. :-)

Congrats to all the lucky winners.
