Winter Wonderland Card

Hi bloggers!  Today's video card is a beautiful black and white winter wonderland card.  I will show you how to easily use the matching stamps for the Forest animals die set too.

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

Beautiful card Sue, gorgeous. A proper Christmas card.
Elaine, I hope the skin clinic can help Andrew, he must be in agony. As his Mum it must tear you up inside not to be able to help him but he knows he has your love and support.
Maureen hope Geirge is feeling better and that you can go to your meet up with the Naughties. Have fun ladies, look forward to reading all the gossip.
Rosemary, I'm missing you too, hope you are well. Let us know honey.
I didn't see Lesley and Gary yesterday, they must have been so tired night flight and drive home from Manchester to Hartlepool so I let them rest.
Ann, hope you got your parcel picked up, I know you would have been ecstatic, that was the way I felt when I saw mine, still do. All of the hexagon dies are stunning.
Laine and Yvonne, hope you girls are okay, missing you.
Daily hugs to all and special thoughts for all poorly and missing friends.

Muriel Kelly said...

Hello Sue and all

The forest animals are becoming my favourite Christmas die set and you have done it again - lol - I didn't think I needed the stamp set to go with it but you have just shown that I do !

This is a beautiful card, I don't have all of the dies but with the background, animals and some snowflakes am sure I can do something though not nearly as lovely as todays beauty.

A big hug to all not feeling 100%,

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

The deer and matching stamps as well as this year's angel are top of my Christmas wish list so thank you for another fabulous sample to inspire me when I finally get my hands on these beauties - not too long to wait now!...off to watch the video...

Elaine - like Donita I was going to suggest some tea tree skin wash for Andrew but hopefully the skin specialist can sort the problem out...


Diane Green said...

Hi Sue
What a gorgeous card today, the stamps are wonderful and do detailed. I really must wait until my contact lenses have settled in my eyes properly before I look as my first glance I thought beautiful Christmassy card but interesting to have giraffes on it!!!! Oh dear haha I think I'll go back to bed. Sorry Sue!
Love Diane G xxx

Hi Sue - this is a really charming card and so striking in black and white. Great video, as always. Sending best wishes

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Die Cutting Enthusiasts,

We do tend to like something better when we have the dies to make it. Deer are right up my street, as you guys say, but I decided I'd get more use from the hexagons than from the woodland dies and stamps. I lust after them, though. This sample was almost a no-hitter, because the only die I have from this bunch is the rectangle frame. Did we notice that even the snowflakes this year are hexagons? Yes we did.

So sorry, Deborah Artliff, about the loss of your father. Even if you weren't close, it's still a punch to the stomach.

Rosemary, thanks for popping up to send us a little wave. It must be so frustrating to have to hobble around on crutches. I hope you feel some peace with all the scares you've been having.

Crewe Trish, I'm not one of those who BBQs in winter. I'm afraid to light the grill, for fear of burning down the house. Also, no garage.

Snuffy Sue, it doesn't matter how many dies you have if you can't see them. Isn't it nice to see things clearly!

Laine and Yvonne, sure hope you're keeping each other entertained, consoled and adequately chocolated.

Hello Sue,
Love this gorgeous card.
Pam, and others, thank you for your kind remarks, George is much better this morning so I am quickly finishing my packing and then going for the train. My daughter and SIL are popping in and phoning to make sure he is o.k.
Elaine, sorry to read that Andrew hasn't an appointment yet, I'll send a little prayer to push one along.
Deborah, I'm so sorry to read your news, I'm thinking of you.
Love to all, I have to prepare myself for all the talk and laughter ahead!!
Diane, you know I NEVER talk to strangers ha ha.

Hi Sue, a beautiful Christmas card. Your deer family against the large snowflake and the white and black colours is so different from a traditional Christmas card. Thanks for your video.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I really love this card even with the black snowflake :-) Great video as usual and I can confirm that your tip about taking the die-cut to the stamp works really well and saves a lot of time trying to match them up. As I don't like getting inky fingers I use another flat block on top and press on that; I find it gives me a more even coverage than when I used just fingers. The Forest Animals, stamps and Lattice Ribbon were among the first I bought from this collection and I am loving using them all.

Saba - thank you, so far no ill effects. I hope you and those of the naughty nine that have managed to meet up have a lovely time and we look forward to reading all about it.
Deborah - so sorry for your loss. It will get easier and crafting definitely helps.
Rosemary - hope things improve for you very soon, you are missed :-)


Pawprintx4 said...

I like the black and white coloring of this card...seems peaceful. Very pretty. I do love deer, seem to have many deer stamps. Now Dianne had an idea, a Christmas giraffe. I would have to get that stamp!
Elaine, I hope that your son is feeling better. Rosemary, feel better soon.
Donita, we never seem to have time for barbecuing anymore, winter or summer. I used to have a natural gas grill in a previous house and then I did BBQ all year because it was easy and right out my kitchen door.
Have a great Tuesday everyone.

Saba said...

Hello Sue,
Loved watching your video and the resulting card is stunning. Thankyou for the stamping tip, very clever.
I'm sitting up in bed now after having had a wonderful day. It started with coffee and cake with Myra and her lovely husband before we set off to meet the rest of the gang at our hotel. We've never stopped chatting and I can't remember the last time I laughed so much. The icing on the cake was that Maureen was able to join us. Diane has been in touch and sent her love so in a way she has still been part of our meet up but as Myra said, it's not the same as having her here.
Frances glad your flu jab hasn't caused any more problems.
Deborah sending you a comforting hug and my sympathy.
Love and hugs for all
