Christmas Double Day

 Hello bloggers!  Another Christmas double day again, what a quick week it has been!  I have two very traditional looking  cards for today's offering.  For this first card, I embossed a white background using the Swirling Holly embossing folder to add texture.  I cut two of the Snowflake corners and coated them with spray adhesive and dusted them with Diamond Sprinkles.  I glued them in opposite corners.  Next I cut the Ornate Pierced Design Noble out of white card and backed it with vintage gold card.  I cut  the centre out to create a frame and added mounting foam to raise it.  I embossed a piece of vintage gold card using the Bed of Roses folder to use as a background for my frame.  I decided to paper grout it with Polar White sparkle texture paste to bring out the pattern a bit more.  Once dry, I glued my frame over it and trimmed away the excess from underneath.  I cut the Vertical Joy die out of coconut white card and sprayed it with adhesive and glittered it with Diamond Sprinkles.  I cut the solid letters out of white and glued them in place behind.  I added mounting foam and glued it in the centre of my frame.  I made two poinsettias using both the Classic Poinsettia die and the Open Petal Poinsettia die.  I added them with some Holly spray and white tulle to the lower left side of my frame.  I completed the card by using my piercing ruler to create a pierced white mat layer.  Next I added a thin vintage gold card mat and a final white mat layer.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 1/4" in size.  Scroll down to see card number two.

The second offering today is a silver pearl and sky blue angel card.  I used the Illusion embossing folder with a piece of coconut white card to add texture to the background.  Next, I used the Ornate Pierced Rectangle Noble die to cut an aperture in the silver pearl card.  I used a paper cutter to cut the outside edge into a rectangle.  I used the two largest dies in the set to add a thinner sky blue frame which I glued to the edge of the aperture.  I mounted it on foam over the embossed background.  I cut the Christmas Angel 2015 out of silver pearl card (from my stash).  I added her with foam in the centre of the frame.  I used the various twinkle stars in the set and cut them out of both blue and silver pearl card and glued them to the background.  I added the word "peace" from the Dove of Peace die set.  I completed the card with a white hand pierced mat layer, a thin silver and blue mat and a wider white mat.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  9" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue.
2 lovely cards today but the first has to be 'my kind of card' its my favourite of the two.
Got carried away trying to find some enthusiasm and doing bits n bob's ready for my first market since April this coming Sunday, so forgot your show at 4 but at least I can fast forward all the hard sell and just watch the demo's of both show's.
Have a good day.

karenlotty said...

Both cards are tremendous Can't pick a favourite I enjoyed your shows yesterday and it sparked more interest in some if the sets I thought I could live without

Yvonne G said...

Morning Sue
Both of these cards are absolutely beautiful. Magnificently festive and I can't choose a favourite.
Thank you for another Oscar winning performance on C & C yesterday. You looked absolutely stunning. Just love to watch you. Your fabulous sharing personality is so evident as you inspire us all. Wish it was back to back Sue shows all the time. I would be glued.
You helped me spend all my Birthday money. It didn't take me long. I will now patiently await the delivery of the Noble Collection Classic Adorned Rectangle Dies, Noble Collection Classic Adorned Square Dies, Pierced Tags Dies and Refined Rectangle Frames, Perseus and Delphinius Gemini Dies and Regal and Quilted Blocks Striplet Dies. Didn't I do well? My poor courier will have to endure another extremely excited and shriek filled outburst. She thinks I am a nutter - she wouldn't be wrong!
Have a wonderful time with your mum.
Will you be back in September before or after Ally Pally? I am so hoping to be well enough to make it this time round,

Sandra - I know what a blessing good friends are so it was lovely to read your comment. Sometimes the best and closest friends are the ones that we meet a little later in our lives. I don't think you are alone in wanting to thank Sue for the support that she generates from her fantastic blog. She deserve a medal x

Magpie - Happy Birthday tooooo yoooooo! Happy Birthday tooooo yoooooo! Happy Birthday dear Karen. Happy Birthday tooooo yoooooo! Seeing as you have already won a card this week I think it only fair that if you win Sue's card that you donate it to me - thank you in advance x

Tres - you just got to love flexi pay x

Lorraine - how's your credit card? x

Steph - love it - blending boobies. Made me smile. Hope that cloud is gone or lifting x

Janet - what happens if you forget something really important when you do your shopping? You can't exactly pop back to get it x

Belle - welcome welcome welcome. You did it right x

My 23 year old son Jake is going to France this evening for a fishing holiday. Today he will take over every bit of available space with all his 'stuff'. I will smile sweetly and breathe a sigh of relief when it is all packed in the car knowing that I have a week before he returns to fill the house once again.
Have a fun filled Friday everyone

Good morning Sue and all. Two beautiful cards Sue but number one has to be my favourite. Enjoyed your shows , you are so inspirational. JJxx

CraftySuetoo said...

Hi Sue. Fabulous shows yesterday, it was fantastic to have you back on our screens. I hope you have a wonderful time back in Florida with your Mum. Both cards are lovely, but the first one is my favourite - I love the noble frame and the paper grouting. Sue XXX

PharmacyMichele said...

Two beautiful cards, difficult to choose a favourite. Not able to watch your shows until Sunday but it sounds like I'll enjoy them!


ecco of sheffield said...

Morning Sue
I hope your feeling better after a night's sleep. Unfortunately I didn't get to see your shows because of getting caught up in the French Farmers' blockading the motorways showing their displeasure that the French system are not buying French cattle and when they do not at a good price.

Anyway today's gifts are truly beautiful both in their own way. This week I can choose a favourite and it has to be No.1 as you have just given me some extra inspiration re my special seasonal gifts I will be making.

Well as it's Friday again and yes where do the days go. I cannot believe we have been here for 5 weeks now and it only seems 5mins so although we did the big shop yesterday we are going to Corbigny market as usual so cakes will be bought for tonight.

To all in pain and suffering I hope your day gets better. To everyone please take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.
Janet x

Anne Crawford said...

Both cards are beautiful! but the first just has the edge for me ( what a lot of work involved , not work exactly but you know what I mean)

Hugs to all xo

Gloria Robey said...

Hi Sue loved your shows yesterday I recorded the shows so I can play them over & over again .The 2 cards fantastic .As I have said before I think the noble range are the best .

Good morning Sue & friends,
2 gorgeous Festive treats today, both very pretty, I do love the Christmas 2015 Angel, she is so pretty!
Your shows were brilliant yesterday, a perfect mid week treat!
I confess that I couldn't resist the Brand new Foundation card colours, so I had to buy the pack they had on the show at 4pm
Boy did it sell like 'hot cakes', I was so pleased to see my order go through and my card is now on the way here!
Thank you Sue for all the inspiration you bought us!
Hugs to all,
Sandra xxxxx

I can't pick a favourite as they are both beautiful in there own right. I would be over the moon to recieve either of these card's for christmas. Two great show's yesterday and once again i couldn't sit on my hand's for to long and bought the new foundation card, it has some wonderful colour's in the pack and the expression's die set. You did some beautiful card's and some fantastic technique's. It doesn't matter when i watch you on tv or your video's i alway's learn something new and the sample card's were amazing. Did i hear right when dave said you will not be back until september. You will be missed on our screen's but have a great time with your mom.
Take care everyone and have a lovely weekend.
Best Wishes.

Muriel Kelly said...

Hello Sue and all
two beautiful Christmas cards, cannot choose a favourite.
Very happy that I found a 7 am show on C & C which is 4 pm my time, so got to watch it even if unable to participate. Fabulous to watch your demos Sue and to see so many cards that I hope will be on the blog in the future. Would have loved the noble bunch and the finishing touches - maybe just as well I couldn't join in lol !!
have a lovely weekend everyone and enjoy your family time for the summer Sue
Muriel x

Chris Curry said...

Two beautiful cards Sue, if I had to choose a favourite I think it would be the first one. Loved watching you yesterday on C&C, I understand why we wont see you again on our screens until September but a little sad about it too. How ever that gives us more time to save up for new dies etc, most of the dies you had on yesterday I already have but I did manage to put the diagonal set in my basket and was lucky enough to get two sets of the new card, one for me and one for my sister. LOL Take care. Xx

Hi Sue- two brilliant cards, difficult to choose one but the first one does it for me as I just love poinsettias.

Will have to watch your shows on catch up, had an unexpected visitor yesterday so missed both.

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
I forgot it was a twofer day, you've given us two beautiful cards to start off a dull and wet day. I haven't tried paper grouting yet it's on my never ending list of things to try. I so love all your noble dies they are so beautiful you can't fail to make a fabulous card. Your angel is beautiful and I can see me using this a lot on my Christmas cards this year ( will have to be shared with last years beautiful angel though lol).
Fabulous shows and demos yesterday it was over too quickly, loved your new card pack colours, sadly I missed out this time hopefully I can get them at a later date.

Hi Sue,
Two cards today so different but equally beautiful! Really enjoyed the shows yesterday, watched them both without any interruptions. Love the way you explain everything, giving us lots of tips. I emailed in to say that I hadn't used my cornflower die very much as I was never pleased with the result, that has now changed, after watching your demo I made one that I am really pleased with....I even did the matchstick technique...Brilliant.
Thank you so much.
Hope you have a wonderful time with your Mom.

ros hodgkins said...

Good morning Sue, I am struggling with Christmas in July, and I look and like your blog just as much, but just slipping the cards I like into a Christmas folder 2015, till they are all shown and I can choose from your designs the cards I'm going to be making this year. It's like being at my own fashion show, just having a good look and deciding which folder each card will go into.
Now this card is my favourite of the year, so far. It's stunning so thank you for helping me choose my cards of 2015.
Lovely to see you on the TV Wednesday, it's been a while, but you are one very busy lady, I get thT do a one day wonder is a real treat. Take care, have a lovely weekend. X Ros

Paula said...

Both beautiful cards Sue, but the first has to be my favourite. Don't get me wrong, the second card is wonderful but the first has the edge for me. :) I enjoyed your shows yesterday very much, thank you for all the inspiration!

Hi Sue, two beautiful Christmas cards.

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
Both are beautiful cards but my favourite is the JOY one. I just love everything about it, not least the stunning poinsettias. I love flowers made with vellum, they have a completely different look about them (I think).
Wonderful shows yesterday, so good to see you again on the screens. SUPER DUPER tip about how to make a die fit, it made me think again "why didn't you think of that?". But then I remembered - you are the Queen of Inspiration.
Hugs, Rose

Janice K said...

Happy Crafting!!! :) X X

Diane said...

Hi Sue
Beautiful cards again today, I think the first one just had the edge for me this time. Thank you so much for sharing. It's pouring with rain here today (sorry Janet!) and I've got a card to make so have planned to catch up with your shows from yesterday as I had a visitor at the time you were on. I had to buy a couple of dies before hand to make use of my £10 voucher! What a shame! Safe trip to Florida, I hope it's not too hot and humid there now, love to your wonderful mum too. Love Diane G xxx
Happy birthday Karen xxx

Hi Sue

Two very beautiful cards for the festive season. I think I love the first one just a tiny bit more as it is my style of card......elegant and simple to recreate.

The Christmas Angel 2015 is lovely and I do like the blue you have used.

Would love to receive either card.

Great shows yesterday and am going to watch them over again today!

Two stunning cards for us today. I think No 2 is my favourite, I love the colours you've used on both cards though. Just shows how well your dies work together. I'll be watching your shows later on this morning.

Maggie C said...

Hello Sue. What beautiful cards and I have the angel already so that one is a must to have a go at. Couldn't watch your shows yesterday as I was babysitting - gorgeous grand daughter but not such a fan of crafting as her Granny yet! I shall have a great this afternoon with a pot of tea and Sue on the TV. xx Maggie (better without a bow)

Hi, Sue. I love both cards but the first one is definitely my favourite of the week. I don't have the embossing folder, but would use my favourite snowflake one.

Hi Sue
Two stunning cards, but the first one has the edge for me with the gorgeous poinsettias. Loved your demonstrations yesterday, I don't buy from create and craft so hope I will be able to find the new colours of card on the Internet.

Hugs and best wishes everyone

CraftyJo said...

Beautiful - I love making Christmas cards and you're giving plenty of inspiration :)

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Good morning Sue and the lovely Wilsonettes!

Yippee! It's fabulous Friday and two for the price of one, you are so spoiling us this week Sue. Both cards are very impressive-as always-but I prefer the layout of no. 1, it is more my taste. Note to self..I will really have to try the paper grouting technique sometime soon, it is so effective. I adore the angel die, she is even better than last years and I will most definitely be purchasing her in the near future.
Like Ros, I have a Christmas folder to delve into when inspiration fails me, with all of your previous years creations too-I also separate video tutorials, new die previews and standard cards also...who says I have a touch of OCD!??!
Your shows yesterday were an inspiration, and thankfully you were given plenty of opportunity to demonstrate without too many interruptions. You looked fabulous and positively glowing, what's your secret? It must be hard work, dedication and love of your craft I think.
Yvonne, my credit card took quite a battering yesterday, it is currently in intensive care after haing to be resuscitated twice-like you, I bought the Gemini and striplet collection, the adorned Rectangle and the foundations card, before going on ebay to buy the entire Canadian Collection that I have been lusting after for ages! Even though I wish Sue was back before September, I think it will take till then for my card, and my Mum, to recuperate!
Tres, I too thank The Lord for the wonders of flexi pay...and so does my bank manager!
Magpie Karen, Happy Birthday! You and Yvonne can now duel for the honour of owning a genuine Sue masterpiece, though it has to be said that Yvonne has broken new ground on charm and manipulation and if her tactics work I will be employing them in the near future myself!
Sandra, what a truly heartwarming story about a friendship found through a shared appreciation of Sues blog. It is something we should all take heed of and if anyone in the Stirling area is also interested in meeting up I would be thrilled.
Beth, fortunately my heart monitor has been delayed until next week because I had a seizure yesterday, so any inevitable spikes in heart rate during Sues shows went undetected:-) enjoy your holidays, plenty of time for crafting hopefully!
What a wonderful blog Sue has created it never fails to have me in stitches. Take care everyone, and enjoy your well deserved rest with your Mum Sue, you will be sadly missed but anytime you are able to spend with loved ones has to be cherished

Love and crafty hugs,


Lynn Dalby said...

Hello Sue.

I love the dies you have used on this first card. The colour is lovely and I really like the paper grout effect you have used for your background, I can imagine the sparkle is stunning. The all white Poinsettias are so pretty. I think the Illusion Embossing Folder works really well with Christmas Angel die cut. I think the hint of blue really works and I love your scattering of stars. Thanks for sharing.

Great shows yesterday on C&C have a safe journey home.

Best wishes.

Dawn Holben said...

WOW they are both absolutely beautiful, can't pick a favourite as I love them both.
I do love the detail on the first on especially in the gold as it brings
out the lovely detail in the embossing folders

Jo Gross said...

Hi Sue

Sorry I haven't commented lately but we are busy packing to move and I shan't see my craft stash for quite a few months. I will miss crafting so much, I will be decorating walls instead.

These 2 cards are just beautiful. I have the JOY die and whatever you do with it, it looks lovely.

I will keep up with following the blog as much as I can.

June Ballenger said...

Sorry Sue

My last post came through as my daughter, Jo Gross not sure why?


Pauline A said...

Hi Sue, Rea;;y enjoyed yesterday's shows and recorded them for future reference. I always love your angel dies and have this one too but I love card No 1 as well. The white poinsettias look gorgeous. Like many other followers, I too will have to give the paste technique a go. Travel safely Sue and have a wonderful time ; but a good rest. Best wishes to your mum. Hugs xx Pauline A

Hi Sue, two beautiful cards and although your angel is gorgeous the first card is my favourite. I enjoyed your demonstrations yesterday and will be watching them again over the week-end. Glad both shows went well for you.

Molly said...

Hello sue an everyone I love the cards today the flower one is really pretty an I know my nan will like that one best but o really love the angle one she is so pretty. Thank you to everyone who sent kind words for my grandad. He is on day 3 of his chemotherapy nan as gone with him because it takes 9 hours to put it in him he as got really sick now an we are not allowed to go to see him because 2 of my sisters have colds. I told him about all the people sending him kind wishes and he said thank you. My grandad as really long hair an my nan always puts it in a long plat for him an it hangs down past his bum and now my daddy said he is getting really upset because they told him all his hair is going to fall out. He as not had it cut for 30 years my dad said not since he was 20 years old. Sorry your not going to be here for 2 months sue I have really liked coming on this blog I hope you will come back again. Thank you everyone Molly oxoxox

Hi Sue, love them both, very beaytiful

nannapat said...

Two stunning cards Sue. I love the first one with that gorgeous swirling holly background and beautiful flowers. The angel is lovely, so very effective. I bought last year's angel and have made lots of cards with it as it cuts perfectly. Pat x

Meg said...

It was great to watch you on tv Sue, you look really well, liked your blue cardigan.
The first of today's cards is my favourite, I think you either like Angels or you don't and I'm afraid I don't.

Your Mum will be thrilled to have you visit with her, love and friendly hug from me to her.

Liane sorry to hear of your episode yesterday. I used to have them but after having a monitor they found my heart kept stopping so in with a pacemaker and all is going well - 11 years now. Good for credit card shocks as it kicks in and keeps me ticking over lol.

How great to hear of ladies meeting up. I go to a small group once a week and we chat and craft and drink tea/coffe with chocolate biscuits.
Mmmm did I say coffee and biscuits --- sorry got to go put the kettle on.

Love and hugs to everyone.
Meg xxxxx

Littlelamb said...

Both beautiful cards today Sue. Cannot choose between them. Enjoyed your shows yesterday but internet playing up a bit so hope to watch them properly on Catchup.

Carole Z said...

Beautiful cards Sue, love them both but especially the first one...yesterday was the first time I've put on C&C in a long while, but I was home and couldn't miss your always superb shows! Hugs Carole Z X

Janice Robinson said...

Hi Sue
Both cards are gorgeous.

Yorks butterfly said...

Hi Sue, I like Fridays two fantastic cards for the price of one, difficult to choose between them, but I think I like the first one best
Really enjoyed the C & C shows last night, have recorded them so I can watch them again.

Jackie Meechan said...

Two gorgeous cards. I have just purchased some Xmas dies, the poinsettia and the holly. I'm very pleased with them and hope to make some cards this weekend using them. Can't choose which card I like best both gorgeous.

Jan.moogie said...

Cant choose between the two as they are both gorgeous and stunning. Loved the shows yesterday and had to buy yet some more Sue Wilson dies, I invested in the diagonals as I adored what you did with them. I also added to my finishing touches by getting that bundle as well. Lots of playing to do when my dies arrive. Thanks for sharing. Hugs xxx

Snuffy Snoo said...

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Both beautiful cards and equally stunning in their own way. Can't pick favourite as they a both fab with the dies doing the talking.

Dorothy Macdonald said...

I do like both of the cards, quite different in their own. The first card I would say would be for the older person, and the angel being for a younger recipient.

Any card using one of your dies are lovely always.

Today is very wet here in Hertfordshire, so it is just right for a crafty evening.

Love n hugs to everyone

TOB said...

Hi Sue, After 6 months of not blogging or crafting due to my shoulder I watched your shows on create and craft and just had to write to say how brilliant they were.
Love all the new dies hubby bought me some for when I can craft again after my operation which I hope will be soon. I've gone stir crazy not crafting so can't wait to get back again. Hugs Theresa xxx

Hi Sue,
What a treat, a two for one day. Both cards are beautiful but for me it has to be no.1. I Love effect you have achieved with the paper grouting and the White poinsettia is just stunning.
Fabulous shows yesterday and loved all your samples. Your demonstrations were amazing, I could watch you all day. Have a safe trip, enjoy your stay and have a wonderful time with your Mom.

Belle, welcome to the wonderful world of Sue Wilson,

The first card is my favourite Sue, I do love the noble dies you can do so much with them, thank you, Linda x

Deb Curtis said...

Hi Sue and wonderful Wilsonettes
What stunning cards we have today, they are both absolutely gorgeous and I I'm afraid there is no gnat's whisker between them today, simply can't choose. The frame is so pretty around the beautiful Joy die and the white and gold look gorgeous together. The angel is beautiful in peaceful silver pearl, she personifies "hark the herald" and the EF is delicious, must look for that one.
MAGPIE Happy Birthday for today, hope you've been spoilt rotten- sending birthday hugs x x
SANDRA it was so lovely to hear about your 1 year anniversary and the great friendships you have found, it's amazing and so heart warming.
LYNDA B, I'm OK thanks for asking. I still haven't been able to watch Sue's shows, thank goodness for the Tivo box, been mad busy with work yesterday and then a quick tea and spent all evening putting the finishing touches to my eldest sons costume for ComiCon which he's going to all weekend. He loves having a crafty mum but sometimes the things he thinks I can do are way out of my league. Been out with my youngest son all day today, getting his holiday clothes and new footy boots for the next season.
YVONNE, I got the same Striplet and Gemini set as you but was soooo disappointed that the beautiful new coloured foundation card had sold out before I could get to it. I thought I should also mention that I have a big birthday-with-a-nought-on-the-end later this year, just giving you plenty of advance notice ha ha.
BETH B, thank you for your kind words, my sister-in-law is doing really well and seems in good spirits despite losing all her hair. Thank you for your prayers. You are a lovely lady and I don't know how you manage to spot everyone's news the way you do, I miss so much of what's going on and I am touched that you commented x
LYNDA M, bet you can't wait for your daughter and grandson to come home, does he have a name yet?
LORRAINE, I love reading your comments, they really tickle me, but was sorry to hear you had a seizure, I must say you sound like you just take everything in your stride. Sending crafty hugs x
MOLLY, I was really moved when I read about your granddad's hair, bless him and you and all your family x
I'm off out for a Turkish meal tonight with my hubby and a couple of friends so will catch up with Sue's shows over the weekend, something to look forward to, can't wait to see all the demo's and samples.
Have a fab evening everyone, love and blessings - Deb C xx

Lesley Cann said...

Love both cards but the angel is my favourite, seems like I am in the minority. Watched both your shows last night and really enjoyed them come back soon.

Bejay Roles said...

Gosh, Sue,
Both cards are beautiful. I love the white poinsettia flowers, they are really rather striking aren't they. How scary is it to realise that at the end of next week it will be August! Where has 2015 gone?? x

Hi Sue. WOW, WOW, WOW !!! Both of your Christmas cards today are gorgeous !! I absolutely love the card that uses your new Noble Dies.

Angela Wade said...

Hi, Sue and Wilsonettes, I'm now back home, only to find the power has been off!!!
Something had tripped the fuse box!!!
Everything was fine when we left again just after 4.30pm Wednesday afternoon. ( We'd returned home to attend our eldest son's, girlfriend's Graduation). Thursday's C&C shows failed to record, so the power must have been off since sometime after 2.30pm :-(
I think some things in the freezer have partially defrosted too !!!

I prefer the first of today's two cards, Sue. I hope to catch up with the videos and this week's cards in detail over the weekend.

Hugs and Best wishes to you all,

Angela now back in S. Wales Xx
