Mosaic Poinsettia



Hello crafters!  It's time to show off the Mosaic Poinsettia!  I loved the way this card came out myself.  I know that many of you might not be keen on the black card in the centre, but it really shows off the ivory embossed sentiment beautifully.  This card also graces the front of  this month's issue of Creative Cardmaking (issue 72) which was quite a surprise to me when I saw it as I had no idea that it had even been submitted!

I do hope that you will be able to join me during my One Day Wonder shows today.  They have added an extra hour on as well so my shows are at 8am, 11am, 2pm, 4pm and 6 to 8pm.  I will have one of our new team members, John Lockwood with me during my later shows as well so I hope you can tune in to see all of our demonstrations today!

Buy from Joanna Sheen








The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue

Sooo beautiful as always Sue, and the poinsettia is and will always be the flower for christmas. I love how you made this one here, sooo gorgeous and elegant as ever hun.
I´ll definitely be watching as many shows as I can today, thats for sure. Not ten wild horses could keep me away then ha ha ha.

Rosalind McLellan said...

Hello Sue,

I agree with you, the black sets it off beautifully.

Love, Roz.x

Heather Rogers said...

I can't agree more with Vick! Having you to watch Sue will brighten up what looks like being a miserable wet day.

This is a lovely card and you are right the black is just right to set the greeting off.

It is a worthy card to grace the front of the card making magazine. I do think CE shoul have asked you first out of courtesy though if it was them that put it forward.

Anyway big congratulations. Hope your blog got a plug.

Good morning Sue and everyone. Another favourite card, your poinsettias are so much nicer than others I have bought previously. I've seen your new EFs - they're gorgeous. I hate bad weather but I'd love a "snow day" today so I could stay at home and watch your shows, unfortunately it's only raining!
Special thoughts to Susi and Mum, and anyone else in pain today. Sue xxx

I Love Today's Fabulous Striking Card I Love The Black/Red/White, I Love The Stunning Poinsettias Espcially Since Now I've Got Them And They Are Just So Beautiful To Cut As All Your Dies Are. I Love The Fabulous Sentiment You Have Used From JustRite.
I Love How You Shaped Your Poinsettias And I Must Admit I Love The Boldness Of The Black And Red, I Love The Fabulous Twigs And Beautiful Holly Leaves And How You've Added One Of My Favourite Products On The Iced Snow, It's So Beautiful Without Being In Your Face. Sue As Always Thank You For Sharing This Awesome Card And The Fabulous Video As I Know You Must Work Extremely Hard Making Them, I Really Appreciate All That You Do.
I'm So Looking Forward To Watching You On Create And Craft Today, And The Good Thing Is With There Channel I'll Be Able To Continue To Watch Over And Over Again For One Week. I Don't Purchase Many Magazine's As Normally Its Very Little Crafting Its Normally Adverts But I'll Have To Check This One Out.

Good morning Sue
Can you guess how excited the Wilsonettes are? Lol. Today's card is exquisite and after watching your video is so easy to do (but it looks as if it took ages I won't tell if you won't lol). Unfortunately I'll be out this morning but have set all shows on my Sky+ I have already ordered in case everything sells out before I get home.

Really love this card, Sue, saved it to my 'personal Sue gallery' when you showed it at the launch.
Same ingredients as yesterday with the poinsettias and holly sprays, but what a different look - equally fab! Thank you for the video, love the twinkly bits, too.
Looking forward to the shows - and we'll see John, too. Temptation looming!

Hi Sue. This is another stunner. My Mum loved this one so much when we saw it at Ally Pally so I am going to try and make it for her and my Dad so thanks for the excellent video : )
I hope your journeys for todays Tv shows are safe and trouble free. It is going to be a long day for you isn't it. I hope you enjoy yourself and John is very lucky to have you as his mentor for his TV debut : )
Sandra, Pat and myself had a lovely time crafting yesterday, and yes, Pete had hoovered before we arrived!!! (I still can't believe that I managed to keep most of my rubbish on the table last week, as usually I manage to spread it all over the place!)
Sending my daily hugs to everyone. Take care.

Anonymous said...

Hi Sue. Beautiful card, fab video and fantastic 8am show - well half of it, as sky box decided to freeze half way through first demo !!! Was I a little cross ? NO I was fuming !
So Im all ready to watch the 11am show hopefully with no hiccups as after so long being out of my craft room, all enthusiasm has gone ! So I really need a massive kick up the booty as I have 2 birthday cards to do for my 'awkward' but lovely lady - Dr Who on one, Lions and tigers on the other ! Oh Lordie.
Have a wonderful day Sue with plenty of pizza to follow : )
Sending baskets of hugs to all that need them.
Love you.

Norah McPhee said...

Good afternoon Sue and Wilsonette angels,
I know i am now sounding like Mary, Mary, quite contrary,but i really do love this card Sue and as you say the white/ivory in the middle is just shown off to perfection against the black. This card is stunning just how it is with the black, red and white. Thank you Sue for giving us such a beauty to look at and drool over. It's nice to see that someone else has good taste as well as us, well done Sue.
Mrs B, i am feeling sorry for poor Pete, but there again he knows that there is going to be a mess made so not sure why he is so bent on hoovering to make the place nice, honest Pete the ladies are coming to play sorry work not to inspect your tidy carpet.
Pat L, sending big hugs Sarah's way and so happy that she is coming on great although i am quite sure you will be glad when they are all back home again. Safe travels for you and the wee boy tomorrow.
Welcome Sharon to Sue's world of wonderment and beauty. You have arrived at the best blog in the world with the loveliest people that ever lived. I hope you come back again now that you are a Wilsonette.
Maria flower, i am hoping that it will be a double celebration for your son today. I have everything crossed for him.
To Tandy, Susi, Lindsay, Lynn, Cheryl, Alison's aunty, Tina's Anthea, i send my thoughts, hugs and prayers to. I got my invites all finished to be ask if i could make up some more as there isn't enough now. Just as well i had ordered up more of the card as i can at least get on with that part of it but i need to order up more of the diamante hearts for the top again. Today, i am going to finish here and go and knit for a wee while to get my head back in the cawing the handle zone as the ebosser makes a line in the card when cutting my design in the end so it is back to the old fashioned way for these. Hope you are all having a great day and i will see you all again soon
Love and crafty hugs

Marianna Hammer said...

Thank you for another wonderful video. What a stunning card. I do love the colors, and the black in the middle really shows the other colors off. It's my kind of card! :)
It's so lovely to see you on the air today, all day :) I keep writing in to your shows to tell you how wonderful it is to see you, but it doesn't seem as they want to read my e-mails. Well, now you know :)
Best of luck for the remainder of the day.

Hi Sue, love the card today, so dramatic with the red and black my favourite card colours.

Saw you on CnC today too - ordered the embossing folders, so can't wait for them to arrive. I do love embossing folder and the heat embossing and ink pad techniques extend what can be done with them and give so much variety to how they can be used.

Craftihappiness to everyone and love from Pearl.

This is absolutely stunning, Sue. I'm not surprised it made the front cover! I'll have to get my hands on a copy. Your card is perfectly balanced and I love the flowers. The pearls are beautiful too.

Hi Sue, I think I'm in love!!! This card is just totally stunning. I love seeing black in cards and using black again for the mosaic part of the poinsettia just makes it pop out at you. Another for my wish list I think. As always, thanks for sharing with us. x

barbara macaskill said...

This is an absolutely gorgeous creation!! I have been totally, head over heels for poinsettias for the last year or so and these are divine!
Wish I could watch your shows in the US but will have to get my fix here on the blog! I have been pouring over all of your posts and tutorials and cannot wait to get my hands on some of your dies!
One of the stores that I gave your information to has been approved and will soon have your dies available here in the US! I am SOOOOOOOOOOO excited!! One of my first purchases is going to be the bows that you showed in the Fire & Ice tutorial!
I will stop rambling now and sit and wait anxiously or your next blog post!!
Have a GREAT day!

Enjoyed the programmes I managed to see today -though it would have been nice to have had a different presenter in the morning (11am) show. I'll bet you are glad the day is over!
Not keen on the colours of today's card to be honest. Idea can be adapted though! Juat don't see black as a Christmas colour -would have liked soft gold!
Hugs Janet in Kent

Sandie Braithwaite said...

I love this die but can someone please give me some advice as to how to get it out!!! Have tried different materials, e mailed into C and C this morning, just can't spend so much time trying to get it cut or out when cut.

Really enjoyed the shows today.

Barbara said...

Gorgeous card and a fab video.
Had my email read out but no luck with a card this time but cant complain as I won a card the last time Sue was on.
John did well for his first day on TV.

Hi Sue,
Oh Dear! Just spent ages sending you a message of thanks and appreciation for today's video, card and Shows. It all went AWOL !
I was watching the end of your two hour show this evening while writing the post - loved the beautiful blue card you made - flower was gorgeous.
I ordered the border, corner and tag set from the French Collection - it has been calling me for months! Today I responded. Lol
Tres - sorry I missed your Birthday , hope you had a lovely time.
Pat L - have a great day visiting your grand daughter in GOSH tomorrow. What a clever girl she is. Safe travel x
Anne - missing your posts do hope you are well.
Sending love to all - including Pam and Robbie, Norah and Rory, Janet, Alison, June, Sandra, Lynda, Lynne and Lindsay - missing you too.
Take care everyone - love Myra xx

Myra P said...

Ps ! I knew this would happen! Today's video and card are gorgeous. This will be a poinsettia Christmas with some Joy and Believe as well. Last year was a snowflake Christmas. Thank you Sue! X love Myra

Hi Sue, managed to see all the shows today, great demos and cards, sorry we will not be seeing you again on TV this year! Anne x

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, me again. I still have to catch up on the 11am & 2pm shows but really enjoyed the later ones. I was lucky to get my (edited) e-mail read out by Dave but not lucky enough to win a card. Oh well, I'll just have to try again next time :-). John did very well on his TV debut and I hope we will be seeing him again.
Great video and I really will be giving this card a go but maybe with a navy or holly green card rather than the black.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Sorry it is so late. The excitement and stress of the last few days (making a posh card and about five tags to go on my sisters Birthday pressies ) has tired me out and taken its toll on my illness. Unfortunately it will last for several days now, but my sister and I had a lovely evening so it was worth it all x x x
Today's card is sooo beautiful !! I really love it !! The middle focal topper looks great and the Poinsettias are gorgeous Sue !! I will have to watch the video tomorrow as I am feeling too ill right now. I still made myself watch all your shows today though as I just could not miss them !! I have recorded them all to just in case I missed anything. I thought you made some beautiful cards on your shows today and your sample cards were gorgeous !! I thought John did a fantastic job to, and made some lovely cards. He made some great card samples to. My hubby bought me the whole entire Austrian set for my Birthday. I am absolutely over the moon !! I can't wait for it all to arrive so I can play. My parents and sister bought me some more beautiful Sue Wilson dies to so I am very lucky. I just wish I felt better so I could do some card making !!
Thank you for giving me the most wonderful day today Sue. I have really enjoyed it so much. You did a wicked job !!
Sending you lots of love and hugs and many thanks for everything you do love from Tres x x x

Pat L, I am so glad your Grand Daughter is improving. Thinking of you and your family. Sending you lots of love and best wishes from Tres x x x

Thank you to everyone that sent me kind Birthday wishes. It really made my day. I hope everyone had a lovely day today, but then with Sue on the tv today, who would'nt !!
Sending all the wonderful Wilsonettes lots of love and hugs today love from Tres x x x






Gail said...

Hi Sue,
I'm very late today, I did manage to catch a few of your shows on the box today.
I'm not a black sort of person, but you are so right today's card needs the black in the center. I rather like it.
