Peace

 Hi crafty friends!  The response from yesterdays giveaway announcement was lovely!  I really enjoy seeing so many comments from both regulars of the blog and many new names!  Don't forget it is going on each day this week so more chances to win!  The winner from yesterdays list of comments is:

    Jan.Moogie!!!

Email me with your details to claim your prize!

On to today's card now with a classic Christmas design which uses the beautiful Festive Poinsettia stamps from Justrite.  These sold out very quickly during their premiere on one of Julia's shows and I will be showing them again on my Sept. 29th Toolshed shows if you are interested.  I started with the background which uses the Basketweave embossing folder on a piece of coconut white card.  I matted it with soft gold card.  I cut a wide strip of coconut white card and stamped my sentiment (from Creative Expressions set called Winter Greetings) on the side and embossed it with gold powder.  I matted this piece with soft gold card as well and taped it across my background.  Using the Festive Poinsettia stamps, I stamped them on red card using a clear Perfect Medium pad.  I heat embossed them all with gold powder and cut them out with the matching poinsettia dies.  I used a foam mat and a stylus to give them a roundness and glued them together offset to create my flowers.  I stamped the leaves on to green card using a clear Perfect Medium pad and dusted them with gold mica powder for a softer look.  I cut them out with the matching dies as well and tucked them under the edges of my two poinsettia flowers.  I added white flatback pearls to the centres of the flowers and added a pearl swirl across the bottom of my card.  I finished with a double white pierced mat as usual.  Finished dimensions are 8" x 8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Another of your beautiful cards that is right up my street for clean, crisp, elegant. I have had the poinsettia die since i first got my GC and it is one of my favourites. The card you have done today is one that would cost you at least £4.99 in any shop just because of its elegant lines.

Hi Sue. Stunning...I love it! It may be quite traditional colours and image for a Christmas card but your card just has that very special something to make it really stand out. Lovely!

Once I have finished organising and helping with running that I give myself lots of crafting time so can't wait to try this card as I already have both dies and stamps. Take care.

I am just making a poinsettia card at the moment - my first Christmas card this year. I love the colours you have used. The poinsettia stamps embossed in gold look fab. I have just stamped mine with black ink on to red and green card but I think it looks equally lovely using ink or embossing powder. The word stamp is beautiful. I love swirly stamped words. I have your basket weave folder and I love that to. Happy crafting to all. Love Tres x x x

What a fabulously,opulent,striking card! I just luv it so much. The layout could be used for other dies etc. You must eat, breathe and sleep design, do you have a pad by the side of your bed to jot things down when they come to you?
Thank you for such wonderful inspiration you give me.

Good Afternoon Sue

I love what you have done with this die, I'm just getting used to doing this die in white and now you show me this gorgeous creation ! But me thinks I have the perfect paper for this die .heeheehee! Not that it will be anywhere near your standard, but we all have to start somewhere!
Happy Crafting

Hi Sue
This card is absolutely beautiful - it really pushes all of my buttons! I got the poinsettia dies when they first came out and love them, but I really want the stamps too.

Gosh it's taken ages to scroll to the bottom of your blog Sue.

I love the way you have used the gold embossed image on the Poinsettia bracts.
