Wow, gorgeous card Sue. It really does look like a sweater background.
Congratulations to our lucky winner Viki, I know you will be thrilled.
I congratulate all who have made all or some of their C cards, afraid I am on the naughty step too, move over Sandy.
Elaine, I hooe Mary is managing well, Andrew is improving and that you are remembering to take care of yourself.
Saba, sounds like you are going to have a busy fun filled week with the family . Duck, well at least he brought poultry, Doh.
Myra thank you for the update on Norah, it will be good to have her back, I have missed her and Patricia.
Maureen I too have no idea who Dodi is but I hooe the girls had a good time.
Well as I write the twins will be boarding their flight to Heathrow then New York with their dad and his wife. I hope they have a wonderful 5 days but I will miss them. Ryan texted me last night and asked what I wanted as a present, bless him. Just want them to enjoy and come back safely.
Dragonsnap, hope you are settling on your new meds, my BP meds have my head throbbing all day.

Good morning Sue. Fabulous card, can't wait until I get home from work and can watch the video too.
Echoing Pam's comments this morning as I'm running late (as usual). Congratulations to Viki on your win. Hugs to all. Sue xxx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, yes I agree with you and Pam it does look like a Christmas jumper, do you know that is something that both my hubby and I do not have!! a Christmas jumper, talk about humbug, well not really because we both love to see the Children at Christmas time, we normally get a skype call with our granddaughter opening her presents, children get so excited don't they, we just sit back and enjoy the day and reflect on the past year.

Anyway I digress, congratulations to Viki, I know just how you will feel when the postie comes to your do with your prize.

Pam I reiterate all you have said above, please take care regarding the blood pressure. I bet the twins are having a great time, yes you will miss them loads but what a great time it will be when they come home full of their adventures.

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel regarding my craft room, well at least I can see the colour of my floor now ha ha. got some more labelling up to do and then tackle my embellishments, they were in lots of different places so now got to sort them out, I think by end of tomorrow evening I would have more or less finished (I hope).

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

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. I feel so dumb and totally thick. When the 'title' of the sample came into view my first thought was - I know I've seen every single die launched since day one of your new venture and have now come to terms with never being able to afford to catch up and own every die, but when on earth did I miss a C jumper die ?!!! Oh dear me there really is no hope. Wollop the penny dropped when the sample appeard lol and how beautiful it is Sue. Your ideas and designs are second to none, you really do deserve the best designer award plus the awards we've voted for. I've seen the most stunning festive samples on this gorgeous blog, but this is just stunning and I'm certainly looking forward to watching the tutorial to this beautiful festive work of art. I can honestly say that this will be the highlight of my day of that doesn't sound daft ! It's too late now to make fluffy cloud and cute animal cards unless my dies arrive today, but thanks to your gorgeous loveable New Arrival collection I was able to make a decent amount of CAS cards to stock up my market baskets for tomorrow, I really don't know where I'd be if it wasn't for your die collections, Phills baby collection stamps and CE goodies.
I'm going to rabble on today and share a fear. Before getting more knowledge from the team and learning about the CE glue, and adding glue to foam not only for 'wiggle time' but to stop the card falling apart I used glue I'd seen in a craft show from a big company who raved how brilliant it was. Move on a year when having an infusion on the ward, I noticed a card I'd sent pinned on the Thank You card board but it has become unstuck and I was suddenly mortified thinking of the previous cards made with this same glue and the 3d gell glue and sold at market !! In fact it's longer much longer than a year ago as I'd not found CE at that time. So as I was making my cards and dotting glue on my foam, that fear came back into mind and it worries me so much how many people have had to either re-stick a card they received years ago or actually thrown it away - although the 2nd option would be better as I can't believe how I had the gaul to sell them in those days as being totally honest, oh boy they were awful then compared to now and even today I can say nowhere near the standard of what I see on Facebook, now that's talent by the bucket load lol. Enough you'll be glad to read.
well done to Viki on winning a beautiful card, enjoy.
Saturday love and hugs on their way xxx

Lovely card Sue, really does remind me of winter jumpers.

Good Morning Sue. This card background looks so real, like hand knitted. So bright and cheerful. And rightly so like a Scandinavian pullover. Love the focal snowflake. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Hello Sue what a cute card, love the red colour on this so rich looking. Must admit first reading it I thought I I've not seen a sweater die before, penny dropped!!! Very realistic and clever of you. Congratulations to winner Carol x

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Craftinettes,

After seeing the title of this sample, I was like Stephanie Cotterill, only I figured you had turned the apron upside down to make a sweater, and used an embossing folder to make it look knitted. As they say apparently around the world, Doh!

I'm amazed that you knew to use blue over red to get gray, and to use broken sticks or whatever to tone down the blue over white. People who can play music by ear are the same to me as visual artists. Do you just know, do you pick things up from a lifetime of noticing what happens after you try something, or do you learn it in school?

The snowflake frames are starting to grow on me. I hope you stop soon, or I might succumb.

Carmen, you rock and roll, having a stash of cards already made!

Helen Bell, you said it! Buying, organizing, blog commenting, watching videos and looking at the creations of others barely leaves time for actually making cards.

Thanks to everyone who shared their progress on making Christmas cards. I'm full of admiration.

Fikreta, if you are new, welcome to our little family. If you're not new, nice to see you comment.

love and huggles,
Donita

Rosemarie said...

Morning Sue, yes, this one ticks all the boxes for me. Really lovely.

Is there room on the naughty step for me as well. I haven't done any Christmas cards. Could we just move Christmas say 6 months further on and I might catch up. I hope your head isn't too bad Pam. It is not fair when they are trying to fix one thing. They give you something else.

Love Rosemarie X X

Hi Sue
Yes it is a sweater background on your card and so adorable, loving it and it would look good in any colour .
Well done to Viki enjoy your card .

Pam i bet the children have a great time , i have never had the chance to visit New York sadly.
Johns meds are not suiting him , they upped from 5mg to 10mg this month he has felt dreadful so i phoned yesterday ,he is to come off them and go back onto the 5mg until he sees his consultant in December .
Andrew had a phone call yesterday from the Dermatology Dept they now know what his skin condition is and can treat it accordingly with antibiotics, nothing to do with his treatment and nothing to worry about they say so we are hoping Andrew will go ahead with Chemo next week .
I think Mary will feel better today when her girls visit , it can be very lonely on your own in the week especially when you are feeling poorly but they have to go to work . Im just off to do Mary some shopping so will have to shoot .
Echoing Pam again today
Huggles to all especially my besties ,missing and poorly peeps .

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I can just imagine snuggling down inside this cosy jumper in front of a roaring fire with snow falling outside. Do you think I watch too many Christmas films? I love the Scandi style of this card and your video shows clearly how to create it, I think it is lovely.

Pam - so sorry your new meds are giving you a headache, if it goes on for more than a few days ask the doctor to change them as they could be too strong to start with. I hope the twins have a lovely time in New York.
Elaine - glad they know what Andrew's problem is and that it is nothing to worry about.
Congratulations to Viki on being this week's Wednesday Winner, enjoy receiving your very first Christmas card!

stitchingranny said...

Like several others here, I too wondered how I missed the sweater die lol. Thankfully after reading some of the other posts I don't feel quite so dumb.
This makes a beautiful card but unfortunately I do not have pennies for everything and this years Christmas buys were the Forest dies and stamps, and if I ever hope to achieve half of the everyday things on my wish list I have to stick to that and be content.

Hugs to those who need them

Hello Sue
I love this and it seems easy to achieve and doesn't necessarily mean Christmas.
Pam I agree with the others don't suffer with the headaches without getting advice.Elaine good news about Andrew fingers crossed but not good about John.Stephanie I like you thought I was using a good glue until I noticed when looking through past cards missing parts.I now only use create expressions the only thing is I noticed that my granddaughter had swopped her glue for mine the other day when crafting at my house as she said it is so much better.MarieP what a lot you have on your plate moving at any age is stressful never mind at 86.Hugs to all.

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue and everyone

Beautiful card. I really like the effect of the blue chalk colourcloud on the ruby card. I have the die set, but not the mask. Loved the video.

Donita, I’m glad you understand what I mean about finding the time to make cards.

I’d like to do some today, but REALLY have to do some more painting. ( decorating, I mean not artistic painting). Glossed three windowsills yesterday, but a tiny fly managed to stick itself to one of them during the night! I have 6 doors ( both sides), architraves, skirting boards and the staircase and downstairs toilet to undercoat and gloss, oh yes and the loft hatch. Started last year, but had a poorly shoulder and op, then some other health issues so it just got left. Oh well, slowly but surely. Doesn’t help I’m such a perfectionist. I’ll just plod on until it’s done.
Right, I’m off to tackle the fly!

Love Helen xxx

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
I’ve watched the video! It’s marvellous I looked at that blue going on to red and thought Hmmmm! However I should have known better - it’s a masterpiece! It’s very clever and so effective! I don’t think I make enough use of masks! I have a confession to make - since watching the video I’ve ordered the Snowflake Dies! I already have some of your snowflakes but this is so eye catching and I think bits could be used all year round!
Stephanie I totally agree about CE Glue. It’s the best and I even use it with my After School Club children. It grabs so quickly so in their case things aren’t sliding around. They have to learn you only need a little bit though! I’ve heard tales about the glue you mentioned before . One friend told me Cards she had made were smelling badly and it was the glue!
Sue - having praised CE Glue for me it would be even better if the black cap and top could be improved on! They do snap off!
That naughty step is some length to fit everyone on it! Maybe you need to sit on one of The Spanish Steps lol.
Helen - that’s a lot of painting! When you mentioned tackling the fly - into my head “ I know an old lady who swallowed a fly, “ you may be 21 for all I know but it made me chuckle!
Crewe Trish - moving house is stressful at any age! My heart goes out to you! Take care!
Elaine - good news - well some good news!
Pam - I’m sure the twins will have a great time! I love New York! Sorry about the headaches! Take care!
Saba - I just think your dear husband fancied Duck !! Have a great time with the family!
It’s Diane’s daughter Emma’s 21st Birthday today!!! Happy Birthday Emma!! Xxxx
Love to all, and hugs for PP , Laine and Norah. Plus one for someone who said they needed one and I’ve forgotten the name! Sorry!
Myra ( Friend of Maureen!” Xxx

Hi Sue Lovely card very Christmassy Yesterdays cards were gorgeous too my favourite was the first one
I have a busy weekend as its our church's harvest supper and concert tonight so I've been making apple crumbles and helping to prepare the salads etc. On top of that we do a silly concert after everyone has eaten its lots of fun but lots of work too
Pam as others have advised don't keep suffering in silence with those headaches if they don't improve contact your GP I'm sure the twins will have a fabulous holiday in New York
Elaine sorry that John's meds aren't suiting him that's a shame, hope Andrews next treatment goes ahead alright
Sending good wishes to all especially our poorly and missing friends

Hi Sue. Although this is not usually the style of card that I would make, I have always admired the Scandi look and this card certainly does not disappoint. Love it.

Lisbeth

Maureen Killen said...

Hello Sue,
What a beautiful Scandi looking card today, and the background is so clever.
Pam, I hope the twins have an amazing time and please get those meds checked quickly as BP and headaches are not good together! Daughter and oldesst granddaughter (13) had an amazing time at the Dodi concert and Eleanor waited to give a letter and some of her artwork to Dodi, but she didn't appear so gave it to the Tour Manager, who was super impressed. I've heard all about it, more than once ha ha.
Marie P, you are a star tackling all that at the age of 86. Good for you!
Saba, Peter is a goose for buying duck instead of chicken ha ha.
Myra, did the curtains survive the pixie powders?
Donita, I meant to say that I always wondered what those big water buckets which hung below planes or helicopters were called. Bambi Buckets, what a good quiz question!!! I've done my neighbours cards, my family cards, but it's the gang cards which are giving me trouble - a bit like them really ha ha.
Elaine, brilliant news re Andrew's rash. He should be able to get his treatment this week. I hope John's meds are sorted soon.
Steph, I agree with your comments regarding glue. There's nothing like CE dries clear but I also agree with Myra in that I wish the nozzle and cap could be improved.
Helen, oh please don't talk about decorating. I suppose we'll have to start soon.
Fluffycat, I was watching Christmas films yesterday while sitting with my youngest granddaughter, then we graduated to Despicable Me 2, for about the fourth time ha ha. It's a Wonderful Life will be coming on in a month or so!!!!
Congratulations to Viki - enjoy.
Love to all,
Maureen (fried Myra's fiend) xxx

Lovely Christmas Sweater card. Didn't realise it was created with a mask until I watched the video and I thought the pattern was red and white. So effective.
Thought I'd be lonely on the naughty step so I'm pleased to have company.
Pam, as others have said, don't let the headaches go on too long before speaking to your G.P.
Elaine, good to hear that they can now treat Andrew's skin condition and that it is nothing to do with his treatment.
Congratulations to Viki.
I'm off to take a refresher course on the Candy Machine as I haven't made one for a few months.
Take care everyone.

Pawprintx4 said...

Good Morning (Sunday)....I stayed up late, actually finishing a Christmas card and watching a movie as hubby wasn't home and then watched the video in bed and got through part of the blog posts and had to call it a night so am behind posting. I guess that fits in with no time for all that is involved in the card making process...made a card, didn't get to the blog...and of course the usual Saturday stuff.
I love this card. Very pretty...the embossing folder is lovely. I have been using embossing folders more this year that I had been. I go in spurts but there are so many beautiful effects using them.
The glue postings were very interesting. I do not have any CE glue! We just don't have access to many of these products here. I do use (I hope) a good glue, have not noticed any of my cards falling apart. I am also a fan of Scor-tape.I have been using glue on the back of foam tape on glitter (thank you Sue). Some of the gals in my group have been using school glue they put on a sponge and store in a Tupperware container. Then they rub their die cut over top. I passed on that...one I do want my cards stuck with better glue and two, I would get glue all over and I hate to see dried glue on cards. I am going to order CE glue next time I order something from England.
Congrats Viki! Way to go. Love to everyone and Pam, hoping the headache left you this AM.
