Thank you for today's beautiful gift and for allowing me to join you in your craft room.
I have only once tried today's technique and was not happy with the result but after seeing your video I will certainly be giving it another go.
I love the colour scheme which reminds me of ice and snow.

Have a wonderful crafty day ya'll : )

alimecca said...

Hi Sue
Beautiful card, absolutely gorgeous. Looks very seasonal and wintry. Very unusual for you to make a full card ( with a back!) but it's lovely. Will be trying this one for my sister I think. Great video too.

Joan D said...

Another super stunning card. Will watch video later. Thank you for all the inspiration Sue. Xxxx

AdrienneQ said...

Wells thats the card for the special members of the family sorted. Thanks

Anonymous said...

Enjoyed, Sue?? Yes indeedy!!
Brilliant video of a 'proper' card, just adore it all. You have used the bane of my life, the holly (folly) border which I have a love/hate relationship with - not surprised you didn't cut it live. It is a true beastie to extract without any damage - even the smallest crease really shows but I LOVE it!
This is one to definitely have a go at. Thank you.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue,
What a beautiful card you have made today and with a beautiful shade of blue that doesn't overwhelm the card but compliments the white of the card just lovely. I will have to try this with this set as well as the other matching sets that i have that will come out beautifully. Thank you Sue for yet another inspirational card and video.
Love and crafty hugs

Sam Smithard said...

Morning Sue,
What a "Stunning Christmas Card" I've loved the Video, I watched it twice already, "I always love it when I have the Dies" so then when I watch once more I can have everything ready and make my card while watching the Video again, I love the beautiful "Soft Blue and White" colours you have chosen and the fantastic Micro Beads! I loved how you also created a Beautiful Micro Bead inside to hold your Holly Border and Sentiment so right through the Card you get a Awesome Christmassy feel once again As Always Sue you've ticked all the boxes. Love from Sam x

Hi Sue. WOW !! What a stunning card today !! This is just sooo beautiful. I really loved your video to. This is something I have not tried to do yet myself as I could not get my brain around what is the exact way to do it. ( Symptoms of the illness.) I have seen the tutorial on your blog but seeing you do it as a proper step by step video is going to help me to achieve this type of card at last !! Thank you so much Sue for all your hard work, amazing cards and fantastic techniques and inspiration. Have a lovely day. Love and best wishes, Tres x x x

Have a great day everyone.

Morning Sue,
You've probably been told this so many times but I'm going to say it again....YOU ARE AN AMAZINGLY TALENTED AND GENEROUS LADY!!
Today's card is just so very stunning and to be able to watch how you make it is great! I've never been quite sure how to do that fold and cut with dies and hey presto you come up with a great video showing exactly how it's done.
So many thanks for all you do for us and all the inspiration that you give us.

Love Sheila xx

WOW what a gorgeous card. So much to like about this one, but I'll limit my waffling! What I'd most like you to know is how useful your videos really are. I tried 'Fancy Nestie' a while ago from the blog tutorial and failed miserably to achieve the desired effect. Watching the video was a 'eureka' event for me! Thank you Sue.

Julye said...

very pretty and elegant card but sorry to show my ignorance but why do you use wax paper between your card stock and the dies. I ask as I am relatively new and inexperienced at die cutting and am always looking for advice as to how to get the best from the dies and make the most of diecutting. will definitely be having a play.

Julie Bee said...

Hi Sue

Such a pretty card, going to give this one a try.

The video was great, well done to you and Creative Expressions.

Craftysusan said...

Hi Sue. Lovely card and I love the pale blue card. Any chance of Joanna Sheen stocking creative expressions card stock in different colours? Video was very enjoyable too - you always explain each step so well. x

Anonymous said...

Welcome to the addictive world of crafting Julye (and expensive) we use wax paper for the very detailed dies as it helps them release from the card stock you are using. A very valuable roll of paper if you dont want to waste card stock, or turn the air blue with frustration when your die refuses to part itself from the card. Hope this has helped. Happy crafting xx

Such a wonderful card. Really pretty colours. I'm going to have a try at something similar today.

magpie said...

Awww this is gorgeous Sue! Love the blue and white together. It looks, like Pam has said, wintry and chilly! The other wonderful thing is the video. Even though I have seen you demonstrate this technique, it still wouldn't sink in about how it was done. Now you have done a video showing this technique, thank you so much! I also have these dies so after I have seen the video, I will make a few. Absolutely gorgeous cards yesterday Sue. I liked them both, but the 2nd one more so. But then every one you make by your fair hand is unique so you will make two very happy ladies out there! Hope you and all the family are well and having lots of special time together Sue, take care, xx Love Karen xx

janet said...

Love the soft colours of this card. Please could you put just a list of ingredients in the blog as it would make it much easier to know if one had the necessary things to try and make a similar card. I love to see the card but only watch the video if I think I'd be able to try it.
I really work better from written instructions I can print out - sorry, as I know many prefer the videos.(probably most, but I'm not a 'visual' worker).

nuttinanni said...

Fantastic videos. As much as I like watching C&C, it is so nice to actually listen to you, on a one to one basis,instead of having constant interruptions by the presenters exhorting us to "buy now before stocks run out" & "there is only % remaining" which puts me off so much. Looking forward to the rest of them. For me this is a sure-fire winner. Hugs Cheryl xxx

Jean Johnston said...

Have used this technique when you first showed us the method in your tutorial and was so pleased with the result. This version is really beautiful. Thank you Sue.
