Joy Scene Diagonal Card


Hello crafters!  Today's video card uses one of the Snow Globe scenes without the Snow globe die, so you can see how easily it can be used on it's own.   Also, as a quick sneak peek  ( and shameless plug! LOL), the Holly branch that has been used across the diagonal and the poinsettias are on the Hochanda ODS shows which continue today at 9am, 12 noon,  4pm and 7pm.

The winner of this week's Wednesday Card Giveaway is:

Veronique!!!

Congratulations!  Please email me at americansue1@gmail.com to confirm your address and claim your card.











 The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  8 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue. Do you have no shame lol. No plug needed HOCHANDA has steam coming from the building when you are on its that hot ! I know what you mean about mirri card - not that I'm calling you a snob, but I'm a self confessed mirri snob, if it's too bright or brash then it can turn a lovely card into something common and yak and totally cheap looking, so at last, I know I can use good quality mirri for my cards, thanks CE. I have to say how much I like today's sample, another for my Pinterest Sue Wilson Festive Inspiration board which got my brain cell fizzing with lots of scrummy ideas for my mountain of growing orders, but as you are headlining my craft viewing, and we have doggy school, plus our little Lottie is celebrating her first year in this world today (well her parents are celebrating) well I don't see card making being part of my day some how lol. WOW where on earth has that year gone ? It's going to be a whirlwind of a weekend that's for sure. Someone else celebrating is Veronique - well done in gaining entry into the Wednesday Winners Club, as a very lucky member myself I just know how much it will mean to you, it's so wonderful to be a proud owner of a Sue card, many ladies will agree 😊 so enjoy.
Well that's me done, I keep looking at the clock and thinking of my little girl and all she was going through this time last year !! I'm either stupid or extremely sentimental (take the senti) away and you're probably about right lol.
Have a great day Sue, pop this hug in your bag along with your umbrella, I mean ruler sorry 😉 xxx

Wendy L said...

So gorgeous Sue, xxx

marg said...

Good Morning Sue!
Loved the cards on Hochanda and the new Poinsettias are calling me!

congrats to Veronique!!!
Love todays card too!
Love Marg

Chris Curry said...

Love everything about this card Sue. I have the globe dies and this is a great idea. Adore the flowers. Thank you Sue. Xx

Scottydog said...

Another beautiful card today, just waiting to switch on for your 9am show today. Enjoyed last nights & like you not a big Miri fan, but you made it look so classy Sue. How do you do it?

Congratulations Veronique.

Anonymous said...

Morning Sue. WOW This is a gorgeous channel card. Its very elegant and classy. A great idea to use the gold mixative to colour your dazzlers. This is another one to try later. Congrats to Veronique on winning Wednesdays beautiful card i am sure she will treasure it and it will have pride of place in her craft room. Great show last night Sue. Cant believe you are using mirror card so if its good enough for Sue its good enough for me LOL and i must say the two cards you made last night were stunning, the first one was very OTT but right up my street, the second one was very clean and simple and a great one for batch making. Looking forward to the rest of your shows today to see what great hints, tips and ideas you can give me. Have a great day Sue.
Best Wishes.

I set my recorder for your first show (it was a repeat showing), sat down to watch it this morning whilst having breakfast and got another show completely. How irritating. I can't believe you have been using mirri card as I know you don't like it. Will have to watch on catchup.

A lovely card this morning - I do like channel cards.

Good Morning Sweet Sue, Oh I did enjoy your program last night and you really opened my eyes over mirri board I always used it as a mount but actually stamping on it I will definitely have to give it a go. This card is just stunning I must check to see if I have that holly spray it looks just gorgeous on that card. hugs Shirleyxxxxx

Hi Sue, a beautiful card with lots of lovely detail, gorgeous. Great video as always. I am sorry that I did not watch last night's show as promised as I was in the hospital with my husband for 7 hours after he had a minor stroke. Missed this morning's as well as I have a lot to do before visiting time but will hopefully catch up with them all later on.

Maureen - Congratulations on your Golden Wedding Anniversary, no mean feat. We have just celebrated our 46th.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and the Wilsonettes,
Oh this is such a beautiful card Sue in the ivory and gold, it is such a perfect combination of colour. The new leaf die looks so pretty leading it's way up that channel, but like the rest of the last two releases it will need to wait unfortunately so i can envy from afar. I hope that you have a lovely day on Hochanda flower and i will if i can, watch when O.H. decides to relinquish the t.v. Thank you for the wonderful inspiration that you have given again today and have a good day.
Congratulations Veronique on winning this weeks beautiful card, i hope you have it's place of glory all ready and waiting, that is once you have got over the shock of seeing your name, lol.
Sending hugs to all my lovely Wilsonettes that need, could do with or just want one, i hope that you are feeling better than yesterday,
love and crafty hugs

Hi Sue, a gorgeous Christmas card. Beautiful and elegant with the gold. Thanks for your video. I will have to play catch up in a weeks time as we are away again. Congratulations to the lucky card winner.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, a truly lovely card today. I have been watching yesterdays show on Hochanda this morning and then the 9am one which is why I am so late 'on parade' today. You are amazing and I never thought I would hear you say you liked the mirror card, I have ordered some from my CE supplier. Do you think CE will ever do a Christmas Red or Green in pearl card, that would be lovely wouldn't it. I was well impressed with the embossing of the Nordic ef and then the paste, got to try that one out.

Laine -hope you are enjoying your new iPad pro.

I have just been through yesterday's blog and to Laine, Crewe Trish, Lorraine (hope you are feeling better) Frances, Pat, Maureen (whip cracking), Diane, Elaine H, Marg, 'P' in Wales, Tina T, Pam and many more - I would like to thank you for your best wishes regarding my cold and upcoming op, I am feeling a little bit better today, well the sniffles have receded anyway, so I have just got my fingers and toes crossed that the Paracetamol and hubbys ministrations have worked and I am ok for Thursday, thank you again everyone.

Stephanie - happy 1st birthday to little Lottie

Bejay - If you are not feeling any better you have to see the doctor, concussion is not nice.

Tina T - so pleased that Peter is more comfortable after having to call out the DN, and knows what will be happening over the next few months, sending him lots of hugs xx

Congratulations to Veronique on your win, I know you enjoy it

June H - pleased to hear that you are now more comfortable, those pesky stitches were a real pain.

Yvonne PP how is that finger.

Tina and Mick, hope things are well with you.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Tracy Stitt said...

Maureen. Hope u have a fabulous golden anniversary big congratulations xx

Suebak said...

Fantastic video Sue. What I love is that you are able to pull out something different for each card you make. Which means we learn so much from you. Just shows that you don't have to make a snowglobe each and every time with the dies. Personally, I love it when there is a diagonal die on the card. Thanks.

ursula said...

The colour of this card is just so soothing, simple yet so stunning.....thank you Sue....luv Ursula xx

Bejay Roles said...

Hi, Sue,
What a fantastic card this morning, I love the way the Holly snakes across the diagonal, that looks like another for my wish list.
Congratulations to Veronique for being this week's lucky winner.
Pam: you're right of courservice, I should have experience gone to the doctor, I'm feeling a lot better now, no more dizzies or feeling sick and my head only hurts if I touch the impact spot. I still look like I'm turning into Hulk though with me green forehead lol.
I'm actually going out for the first time ever since the collision, only down to the post box though. I may even take the deadly weapon that is my dog lol.
Happy Saturday everyone
Bejay xx

Beautiful card, Sue, pretty with the holly and fab sparkly flowers. Great video too, thank you.
Thought you'd be on repeat at 10 last night as advertised by Hochanda, but it wasn't to be as Sheena was there (like her also) - so watched your show in early hours - just loved that really special gold and red card - and the mirri!
My next neighbours over the field found a wee half-grown kitten up a tree in their garden last night, they're off on holiday very soon so am a foster mum - again! Hoping to find his owner soon. Meanwhile, he's just gorgeous. Temp name is Tacker, he was so hungry he's eaten about half his bodyweight in food in the past 20 or so hours. In love again!!
Sending good wishes to the poorly people. Good to see Sam back.
Well done to Veronique on the card win.
Maureen Killen - big congrats on the Golden Wedding!! Hope it's a great day.

A fabulous video and lovely "JOY" Christmas card. Thank you for the video. I watched you on hochanda. Glad you found a mirror card you like. I like using mirror card for just the right design. The mirror card seems to give a "rich" look on some designs. And of course - more bling!

Beautiful card, love all the sparkle and shine.
Loved your shows and I tried ordering a few bits from Hochanda but their website would not cooperate so I ordered elsewhere. Some pixie powders fell into my basket so I am looking forward to playing with those.
Very strange as at one point yesterday I felt like giving everything crafty away! Thankfully I got over that and have been creating today.
Congratulations to Veronique on her win.
Happy Birthday to Heather and Lottie.
Happy Golden Wedding to Maureen and Hubby, I hope you have had a wonderful day.
Frances so sorry to hear your Husband has been taken ill. It must have been very scary for both of you. Huggles.
Glad to hear the D.N. was so on the ball for Peter.
My apologies that is as far as I got with today's news.
My eldest daughter and my grandson came for a visit this afternoon, that was lovely.
Must go to bed now so take care all xxx

Dawn Holben said...

Sue this is a fab and very pretty card, i love the channel with the holly branch
across it.
There is something about white and gold christmas cards that i love.
The shows were fantastic and i loved every single demo and have to agree with
what you were saying about mirri card.
i find the gold can be a bit too yellowish but i loved the gold and silver you
show and wow i never thought of stamping on it and using embossing powder.
i was stunned at the gorgeous background you did with that technique and will
definately be trying that.
absolutely loved it.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW, WOW, WOW !!! Today's card is absolutely stunning !!! I love the video to. A beautiful, classy, elegant looking Christmas card. I love the milk and gold colour combo. Your " Joy" die looks fab and I love how you framed it with the milk and gold and added the glitter. I love channel cards and this one looks beautiful using your Holly branch dies. I have your Contemporary Poinsettia background EF and it is fab !!! I absoulutely adore Poinsettia's and these ones you have made are just gorgeous Sue. Milk card with the glitter on looks beautiful and I like how you have changed the colour of the Dazzlers but I don't own any Alcohol inks at all !!! Maybe I should consider getting some. I wonder if I could coat the Dazzlers with my sticky ink pad and coat in brilliant sparkle embossing powder and heat set it instead ? I think it may be worth a try. Thank you for sharing your stunning card and video today. I watched your shows all day today Sue and they were all totally amazing !!! I can't believe all the wonderful, clever ideas you have shared with us today. I cannot thank you enough Sue. You are so inspirational and I cannot wait to get started on some Christmas cards. I loved all of your demo's today and your card samples are amazing !!! I just need to make Steve's Birthday card now and then I can get started. It is my Birthday next weekend so I will have to wait another whole week as I know some of my family have bought me some Christmas card making goodies ( mainly your Christmas dies Sue !!! ) Thank you for everything. I would like to say a big "Happy Birthday" to your daughter Heather to. I do hope you get the chance to have a well deserved rest now. Take care, sending lots of love to you Sue from Tres x x x
