Good morning Sue.
A stunning card that would certainly grab your attention on a mantlepiece.
I love the effect of the new linx embellishment. Thank you for the great tutorial and inspiration.x

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. What a lovely card for us to wake up to or catch up with after work. And as per, a lovely tutorial to instruct us through the process.
Until I watched it I thought the golden spirals were from an older collection I have which are cute little additions I use from time to time but nope, yet again CE are tempting us with even more new scrummy goodies lol. I'm sure I'll be tempted too after all, what's a festive card without sparkly ribbons etc. A really lovely card to send to anyone that will beat any expensive shop bought card.
Well I was thrown a curve ball yesterday which interfered with my planned Sue day ! We spent most of the day on and off washing parts of the dogs coat as she did what a lot of them do.... found the stinkiest stickiest fox doo doo !!! Oh my word, thank goodness for dog shampoo specifically made for that disgusting habit lol but it took several attempts as she has such thick coats being part German Shepherd so we had to keep washing the areas then keep our nostrils open, 5 partial wash downs later and the additional washing of her collar we'd cracked it but my day had now gone completely pear shaped or should I say pooh shaped that I just didn't find enough time to sit down and relax and enjoy my very much looked forward to Sue day, and today we have the dog sitter paying a visit to introduce herself to the dog ready for our day out on Lottie's first birthday.
So tomorrow will be MY day ☺
Until then take this hug for the day and hope you have a good one xxx

So elegant, as you say Sue, lovely colours with a touch of sparkle and pretty flowers. Just about perfect! Thanks for the video, always a joy to watch.
Thinking of Tracy and June - hope good news.
Laine and PP - chuckled to think of you both tap tapping away at your messages and publishing around the same moment!
Pam - good to see you up top!!
Had a weird dream about a flying black cat trying to overtake a lorry on the motorway, couldn't make it and clung to the wing mirror. We managed to pull alongside and I scruffed it, pulled it through our window and (what do you know?) brought it home. Hope that's not prophetic!
Hugs all round.

Hi sue. And crafty crew

Georgeous card. Love the bling. Canny beat a bit of bling at Xmas time lol and it's fast approaching. Xx

Had my first go with pixie powders yesterday. Oh my word it went everywhere!!! I was trying to re create sues lovely background the one on the show with the star. I know ur not supposed to squeeze but sue u squeezed on this one lol
Effect was pretty good tho but I'd bought the firework instead of the midnight blue. I'll have to get the blue. Hubby really liked the effect but wasn't happy at me buying the pixie powders lol ah well
Just need to get the hang of the gilding polish now. Sue can we have a video on how to use those please??

Steph hope u get ur sue day I was laughing at ur story tho X
June good luck for today!

Lynda b hope ur feeling better soon ma wee pal xx

Diane Green said...

Hi Sue
Love the Christmassy set dressing in your video, I hope you weren't filming it when the temperatures were soaring outside! The card is beautiful, I couldn't work out why you needed the extra layers on the outside edge but the close up photo shows why, lovely. My gilding waxes have gone really hard although I have blending solipution to add I've sort of gone off them although the effect is beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
Love Diane G xxx

Tracey I'm sorry I had a chuckle, I hope you didn't sneeze whilst using them. My husband was fascinated too, told me that's enough but I had to do one more squirt of water! That overlooked it but it's still a lovely effect. Sending hugs xxx
Tina and June I hope appointments go well today xxx

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and the Wilsonettes,
THis is a fabulous card Sue, one that is really special looking and with the gilding wax softly over the white card to allow it to take life just finishes it off beautifully. I haven't got this angel yet but oh how this card would be oh so right for my special friend, so i think an order is required after my wee holiday away. Thank you flower for such a stunning card as i think we all have that special person who it would be right for. Have a lovely day flower whatever you are doing and i wonder what inspiration is going to be next on the agenda.
Well O.H. is having a day off from his tiling adventures thank goodness as it gives me a day off as well, so i will get my special neices' baby shawl finshed today and hopefully the 3ply that i have ordered will be in today as well. I can hardly believe that Monday is my special neice and her husbands first wedding anniversary. I don't know where that last year has gone but i do know that i have had a wonderful year making new friendships that have brought a lot of fun and laughter into my life, so to my very special cherubs thank you and see you all in a fortnight, WHOOPPEEEE.
I hope that you all have a lovely day for whatever you want to do and sending hugs to all the Wilsonettes that need, want or could do with,
love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil Village)

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
Beautiful card, will watch the video later as not possible at the moment! I've ordered the metallic cord last week! Looking forward to using it! Had similar , a few years ago which I used in floral arrangements and gift tags/ bags! Wonder if I used it all? Ha ha!
Pam - whatever are you doing being up so early on holiday? I'm guessing old habits die hard! You would get on very well with my friend Patricia!
Norah - so pleased the Master Tiler is having a day off! Phew!! x
Tracy - so pleased you've plucked up courage and gone for these pixie powders! They are effective aren't they.
.P - I think you need to take more water with whatever you are having!! Lol you made me laugh!
To all going for tests or to get results today - thinking of you!!

Sue - it's me again ! I managed to watch the video! Thank you. The Angel is gorgeous and the colours are perfect!
Love the poinsettias but they are a favourite of mine anyway! The gold Linx is very similar to what I've had before - used to wrap it round a pencil end and make a sort of spiral tube with it! I know what I mean! X

For the most part I don't send religious cards at Christmas but this die is ideal for those occasions when I like to make cards for those friends who are believers. This is a lovely creation, simple but elegant. As always, thanks for the ideas.

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Good afternoon lovely sue and her crafty crew!

What a rich and opulent Christmas card, I love the colour palette, it really suits the beautiful Angel Striplet. The EF provides the perfect base with just a hint of soft gold shimmer....I always struggle with gilding wax and my long nails though I do love the effect. The accent provided by the two other dies works beautifully and fills the space perfectly, do forgive me for not naming them, I've been looking at your festive range and my head gets easily muddled by their fabulousness and I forget the names, blame my age:-)
Your demo was fantastic and I will most definitely be trying this card....just have to buy the dies first! I did buy loads of metallic Linx at Ally Pally in various colours because I felt that they would be really useful on my Christmas cards.
My plans for today were scuppered, I had a caci facial booked, and boy did I need it, but had to cancel because of a sinus infection....I've had it since Ally Pally and it doesn't seem to be clearing:-( I think staying in palace pixie with all the windows wide and fans blowing has played havoc with my immune system...Yvonne has reached that sensitive age where you are prone to sweating excessively whereas I still have at least a decade before I need to worry about that:-) So I'm faced with looking as miserable ,with my sagging jowls ,as I currently feel:-)
Pam, please don't take my jesting to heart, have a lie in on your holiday honey, we will manage in your absence:-) Though in saying that, how long are you away for?:-)
Norah, you must be super excited about your trip, who will you be meeting, not that meddlesome double act Myra and Maureen? Hope you enjoy your day of rest from the tiling, make the most of it honey.
Tracy, hoping you had good news today, thinking of youxxx
To anyone getting results or attending appointments, hope all goes well.
Yvonne, I can't seem to avoid you any longer it appears, I guess I'll just have to tolerate our catch up later, I must do my bit for the 'special' people amongst us:-)
Sending healing hugs to wheely bad, Mick and Tina, Elaine and Andrew and tina and Peterxxxx
Cuddles to all my blog besties, hope you are all well.
Oh and P, that dream was surreal, what on earth did you have for supper the night before....and is it legal?:-)

Princess Pixie! said...

Afternoon Sue
I am always delighted to see your fabulous festive offerings and this is no exception. The video will have to go on hold for now but will look forward to watching with my feet up and a cuppa!
Loving your gold phase. This shade of gold really does rock my boat and is such a soft hue. I need to replenish my stocks as I didn't realise how little I had. Feeling a few gold tinged Christmas cards coming on.
I do hope you are managing to replenish your energy levels after such a hectic time. After all we need you bright eyed and bushy tailed for the weekend. Especially seeing as those of us who have been deprived of Hochanda on Free view are counting down the hours til we will not have to tolerate trying to watch on such small screens. These disruptions always seem to coincide with your dhows - is it some sort of conspiracy?
I really need to pull my finger out and get on with making some cards. Laine and I started well during her stay. Apart from one day of crafting at the beginning of her stay our creative plans were thwarted due to collapsing shelves and over excitement leading to being knackered. That was Sue's fault - the over excitement not the collapsing shelves. When you get to meet the crafty queen at Ally Pally feeling overcome is unavoidable x
Myra - I am touched by your concern for the need to dilute any potent liquid which may pass my lips. I can assure you that the strongest thing to pass my lips is milky coffee. From what you know about me do you think it wise that I abstain from alcohol? Lol. Hugs x
Norah - I know exactly what you mean. Why is it that whenever men decide to do those jobs it creates more work for us. And then they take all the credit without giving us any of the recognition. Bless them. Hugs x
Theresa W - have a lovely holiday with your new hair do x
Tracy - well done girl. It took a while but you got there in the end. I remember when Sue first demonstrated the pixie powders and gave us strict instructions NOT TO SQUEEZE. Then blow me down she ignores her own advice and was squeezing those powders as if her life depended on it. Jokes aside persevere and carry on playing. Laine loved them. She had a go before we went to Ally Pally then bought 7. Need I say more? Try tapping them gently before moving on to the more advanced squeeze method! Lol. Let me know. Hugs x
P - Laine and I had not planned to coordinate our comments but hey -aren't we clever. Hugs x
Maria - how you doing hun? Hugs x
Laine - looking forward to our catch up later. Prepare yourself - I have not spoken to you for almost a week. There is a lot of pent up sarcasm eager to escape. Lol. Hugs x
OK my royal subjects, all for now.
Sending lots of love to everybody specially Wheely, Lesley S, June, Tina and Peter, Pam, June, Lorraine, Fluffy, Elaine and Andrew, Tina and Mick, Jane and anyone else I have forgotten x
Take care

Thank you for another fab video too, always a joy to watch.

Deb Curtis said...

Hi Sue and lovely ladies
I do hope you are all well. So sorry not been able to comment for a few days though I have been keeping my eye on Sue's blog of delights. Been busy clearing out father-in-laws flat as we've given notice on it, he'll be going into a care home - when we can find one that has a room available - till then he remains in hospital, which was 11 weeks on Sunday and counting.
There have been some simply sublime cards in the last few days. I especially liked the Double Fan with sugared flower and gorgeous colour scheme. Today's card is also divine, Hallelujah with a golden glow is the saintly angel, perfect for Christmas.
There's simply too much to catch up with and comment but I wish everyone a great week. Special hello's to Princess P - hope you have recovered from your Ally adventure, Laine - so glad you got home safely, sorry to hear of the delays though. I was choked to see my name listed as a "blog bestie" the other day - thank you, Lynda B, Myra and sending hugs to everyone.
Love & blessings

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW !!! Your card today is absolutely stunning !!! So very elegant and sophisticated. I love it !!! Sorry I have not commented for a couple of days but I have been a bit unwell. I love your video today, it is fab and I love the Star Swirls EF. This one is a "must have" folder as it does not have to be used just for Christmas and I really love the design of it. The milk card with the gilding wax over it looks really elegant. I love all of the dies you have used and in my opinion milk and gold card is perfect for a classic Christmas colour combo. Those Poinsettia's are amazing Sue. So far I have used both sets together or the full Poinsettia, but I have not yet used the open ones by themselves. They look beautiful, and I love the thin ribbon and the metallic Lynx. It looks great fun to use but I could see myself sitting there pulling it and messing about with it first before putting it on my cards !!! Yesterday's card was beautiful to. Thank you for sharing your stunning cards. Sending you lots of love Sue from Tres x x x

Good motning, Sue
A really gorgeous card this morning!
I can just imagine how excited the lucky winner will be when this card drops through their letterbox.
I love the soft look created by using the Vellum over the pretty Duck egg blue card.
Greetings to Yvonne aka Princess Pixie for thinking of me! I will always remember our chance encounter at AP and remember the delight at realising I was actually talking to the famous Princess P and Lorraine and of course the wonderful Sue! I hope we will meet again at AP if the local coach company continues to run a coach next year. . I hope you both enjoyed your chat last night and caught up with all your news and cardmaking achievements.
Well it is a gorgeous day here so I must get out in the garden!
