With All Good Wishes

 Good Sunday Morning all!  How are those Christmas cards coming along?  Have we made a good and proper start to them yet?  This is a really easy one if you are looking for something a bit different, non traditional and fun.  I started by embossing a piece of kraft card using the Wild Poinsettia embossing folder from Couture Creations.  I matted it with a piece of black card.  Next I stamped the Striped Holly Background by Justrite Stamps using a clear perfect Medium pad on to kraft card again.  I heat embossed it with white powder.  I trimmed and matted it with a piece of Rich Red card this time.  I matted it with foam onto my embossed background.  I stamped the large bauble from the Christmas Vintage Labels Four set from Justrite using a Black Archival ink pad on to kraft card.  I cut it out with the 2013 Heirloom Ornament die and inked it with Antique Linen before removing it from the die.  I coloured the top red for a pop of colour.  I cut one of the borders from the Frosty Forms set in red card and added it to the bottom of my background.  I added my bauble to the card next using some foam pieces for added dimension.  I stamped my sentiment from the set on kraft card and white embossed it.  I cut it out with a scalloped circle die and inked the edges with  Black Soot.  I mounted it in the centre of the bauble with foam pieces as well.  I made a small poinsettia out of the red felt and added a pearl to the centre.  I seated it with some red and white Bakers Twine bow on the side of the bauble as an accent.  I finished the card with a double white mat with a pierced mat layer as a frame.  Finished dimensions are 7" x 8 1/4" in size.

It's Sunday, you know what that means!  Winners!  Two sets this week.  The first names drawn are:
Marie Densley!!!
Jean Z!!!
Carol Edwards!!!

For the extra qualifying post of Oct. 16th, the winners are:
KP!!!
Tina Eldridge!!!
Rach 83!!!

Congratulations to all!  Please email me at americansue1@gmail.com to confirm your address and claim your prize!   I have just had word that this is the week coming!  It's official, only a few more days now!  I am very excited (still can't tell though!), you will just have to check back! LOL   All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue,
Fantastic Christmas Card on your blog today, without sounding like a broken record, I just love this card, please don't tire of showing us your Christmas Cards as I have many to do and as I've said before I'm thrilled with your help and techniques, I love how you have used your Red/Black card, and stamped using the truly fantastic
"Creative Expressions" Awesome white "Embossing Powders" and the "2013 Heirloom Die" which I've just purchased, another fantastic Card this would have been great for Wednesday Giveaway! Love from Sam x

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue from a very very wet Burgundy - went to bed last night in a thunder storm and it's still on this morning.
Traditional or not - like yesterday's gift I have fallen in love with your card for today.
The colouring is beautiful and as you say simple to make so I will be adding this to my style for this year. I received yesterday some felt so will also be playing for the first time with felt and my GC.

Love this card, Sue, the kraft gives it a sort of vintage feel. Nice one.
Made the 'mistake' of Holiday Tree 2012 + holly borders etc for my theme this year, but both SO difficult to remove successfully from dies even with release aids. Made over 60 and battling on!!

GM Sue - love this card - really lovely. Still haven't started the Christmas cards but this week I will. I dont have many to make as only special people get handmade ones - I just can't seem to get in the mood when the weather is hot and sunny - no excuses now then on that score!

Fab Christmas Card Sue.Love the idea of.bauble and Poinsettia.Feeling a bit smug as I finished making my Christmas cards yesterday.(Just have to write them now ) and that's the bit I don't like as it takes ages of crafting time up ! Xxxxx

lydia jordan said...

Morning Sue,
Lovely card, the holly background stamp is gorgeous. I like traditional colours for Christmas but I do think the kraft card works and I've used it quite a lot myself this year, have made about 60 cards, some for charity, but still have the specials to make.
Congrats to the winners.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. This card is just gorgeous !! I really really love it !! I am still waiting for my christmas vintage labels four stamps and the heirloom ornaments 2013 to arrive. I have been told next week. I received the holly background stamp as a gift for my birthday. This is definately a card I am going to make. It is fab. I like most of your colour combo but just not to sure about the Kraft card, still you are the one who got me using black card which I had never done before in 8 years of crafting and you were right, so maybe I should give it a try. I will be trying out my new christmas felt to. Hope you are having a good time with your family. I met my new nephew baby Josh for the first time yesterday. He is absolutely amazing. Congrats to all the winners. Lots of Love and Best Wishes Sue, from Tres x x x
Ps I cannot wait to hear about your surprise !!

This card is gorgeous. I love the White embossing on kraft card. Going to try this. I have made lots of poinsettias with your felt. It's really fabulous stuff and cuts like a dream. Thank you for sharing.

CraftyJo said...

Hi Sue, so far I've made about 60 cards ready for Christmas - my mother-in-law decided she liked the ones I'd already stashed away so I'm having to make twice as many now! They're nowhere near as complex as those you show here (well, some special ones are) but hand-made makes any card special I think.

I love today's example, thanks for the inspiration.

Thank you for yet another stunning card. Is Christmas really only 10 weeks away? I only make cards for special people as it takes me so long that I never have enough to send to everybody.

You have given me so many brilliant ideas and please release your news quickly as I don't think that i can stand the suspense much longer. Hugs Pauline A x

Today's card is really lovely, and oldy worldy look to it, liking the kraft card.

What a lovely surprise this morning to open your blog and find my name as one of the winners. That's made my day. Thank you so much Sue.

I remember contacting you a while ago to see if you were making another DVD sometime soon, and you said there was something in the pipeline that I'm sure we would like. Then the charity DVD came out so I thought that was the surprise, and now in a few days we will know about that surprise in the pipeline. I can't wait.

Kind regards :-)

Ashamed to say I have only made 1 Christmas card :( Procrastination should have been my middle name! I do seem to spend ages ogling others' creations rather than getting on with my own. However I am now inspired to make a few more and would love to do variations on this one. If I make batches of each element it should be a doddle, right?
