Joy

 Hi bloggers!  How about this one for a rather non traditional Christmas card?  Rusty Hinge and Peacock Feathers (and gold).  Every once in a while, you just have to let go and get wild.  It may get a split decision on this one, but I loved the way it turned out!  Initially, I embossed a piece of coconut white card with the Holiday Magic embossibility.  I found this strip of decorative card in my scrap bin so I thought I would use it and build the rest of the card from there.  I cut a Holly Accent border in white and glued it to the strip.  I cut a Resplendent Rectangle  in white card as a backdrop for my focal element.  I stamped my swirly deer using a clear perfect medium pad and embossed it in gold.  I used an Antique Linen distress marker to add a bit of shadow to the image.  I cut it out with the smallest die in the Grand Large Labels set.  While it was still in the die, I inked the top portion with Rusty Hinge and the lower portion with Peacock Feathers distress ink.  I mounted it with foam so the decorative edge showed from underneath.  I tied a messy bow out of white seam binding and added it to the lower corner.  Using the Sun Kissed Poinsettia stamp by Heartfelt Creations, I stamped it on matching card with a clear perfect medium pad.  I heat embossed it with gold powder and cut it out with the coordinating die.  I put a couple of flowers together with the pieces and added them to the bow and card.  I finished the flowers with flatback pearls and Iced snow on the tips.  Finally, I finished the card with my usual double white pierced mat.  What do you think?  Finished dimensions are 8" x 8 1/4" in size.

Now for the winner of the first Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway.... the name drawn was :
Karen Lotty!!!  
Congratulations!  Email me at americansue1@gmail.com to confirm your address and claim your card. Another giveaway on Wednesday, don't forget!  All for now, Sue x

Joyful card, Sue, like the colours and design but (sorry to be picky) would have preferred no peacock and left it monochrome.
Didn't catch any show yesterday but hope to do better today!

GM Sue - I think you have turned me where christmas cards are concerned - I was very traditional with colours but think I am getting more adventurous since seeing your alternative colour combinations.

alimecca said...

Hi Sue
A really happy card! Love the reindeer stamps - it looks really playful. The colours somehow work but I'm still not sure that I would use them for Christmas though. Managed to watch your shows yesterday & loved all your demonstrations and samples. I always get a little frustrated though because the presenters just waffle on. I know they have to sell the products but I watched the last 20 minutes live of the show you did with Dave and for 15 minutes he just talked - you could have got another card started if not finished!!!!

beachie said...

Hi Sue
Its different ,yes, but its lovely. The flowers are gorgeous. Missed most of yesterdays shows, but the samples were outstanding.

Thank you very much Sue. Mary-Durham.

Joan D said...

Beautiful card, but as you say I think split decisions on this one. Not my cup of tea,as they're not my colours, but it is a very unusual and decorative card. Enjoyed the shows and looking forward to today's X

Pat L said...

Janice K said...

A great sentiment for a beautiful design as the reindeer looks like he's full of joy. The colours are different to the normal christmas ones but look uplifting. x

Jackie Calvert said...

Hi Sue. How lovely to watch you create your magic again. I like the overall design of the card today, but it does not give me that Christmassy feel. I guess I'm a died in the wool traditionalist!
Take care now, love Jackie C XXX

Beautiful card, not sure about the colours for Christmas. Great shows yesterday, just wish you could get in more demonstrations. Perhaps the powers to be could also give us a classroom with Sue like the Barbara Grey one.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. What a fantastic card !! It is beautiful. I love the little reindeer, he is so cute !! I did buy some stuff but not the multibuy stamp set. Now I wish I had done !! I love that you have used the holly border die. I bought these at the end of last year but have hardly used them yet. I love the layout of the card. The poinsettia's look lovely but I already have the spellbinder ones. I really love the colours you have used but for a christmas card I would probably use more traditional colours. (But that is just me.) I loved your shows yesterday and your samples and demos were just out of this world !! You are so clever and your cards are all so beautiful. You are such a pleasure to watch, unlike some of the c+c presenters. I wish they would just stop talking so much and let you get on with more demos. I cannot wait to see more of your shows today. I have so missed not seeing you on tv for such a long time. Good luck for today. Take care Sue. Lots of love Tres x x x

Yes definitely a split decision I first looked at 6.30am and thought - not for Christmas - so went away and now am back on looking a second time its a yes. Sometimes you need to look twice. Why can't Christmas be Retro...
Really enjoyed the shows yesterday and have a huge parcel on its way.

sharon said...

Good morning Sue
I must say I usually like non-traditional colours but this I must admit (imo) just doesn't seem right. I think it's the rusty hinge behind the holly border but I bow to your superior knowledge on the subject and accept that you may be right on this one. Loved your shows yesterday and looking forward to todays.
Sharon K. x

hollyberry said...

So different to yesterdays card but WOW this one certainly inspires JOY with those amazing,wonderful colours.I think different is the way to go sometimes and the two colours go so well together.

Ayelet Barkay said...

Awesome card! I love the flowers.

Shirley Terretta said...

Hi Sue,

Stunning card. Thank you.

My winners card came this morning - WOW. It was lovely on your blog but in real life ....... It was spooky too. That is the card that I printed off your blog to copy for my Christmas cards this year so to see it in real life WOW again.

Much love,

Shirley T. xxxxxxxxx

Lacelady said...

Hmm, not quite sure about it - I like the colour scheme, but somehow not for Christmas. So I would utilise the scheme, but with a different theme, I think.

You seem to have been back and forth on both channels yesterday, so it was hard to keep up with you.

I'll see if I can do better today. Have you finished with Spellbinders in favour of Justrite these days?

Nanna Tina said...

Hi Sue
Lovely card, not colours I would have chosen but they look lovely together.
Been watching parts of your shows in between other things but have them on record so will be watching later
Congratulations to the winner of the card.
Happy crafting

Ok, now then Sue, this is a seriously different Christmas Card, but I LOVE it. You always think outside the box, and as someone told me once always go out of your comfort zone it makes for an all round crafter, and I agree. I often make cards with colours and items that do not appeal greatly to me but there is always someone who will love it. Keep up the great work. hugs x
