Christmas Double Day

Hello bloggers!  I have two fun sort of Christmas cards to share with you today.  First up is a card which uses one of the Stamp To Die For range.  I started by embossing a piece of coconut white card with the Twisted Holly embossing folder for texture.  I cut two of the Garland Edgers with the wide border and the scalloped border next to each other and glued them on to the sides of the card.  Next I stamped the Presents Galore Stamp To Die For in black Archival ink.  I used Distress Markers to colour it in (Festive Berries Tumbled Glass, Forest Moss, Spun Sugar) and cut it out with the matching outer die from the Holly Lattice Frame.  I cut another of the same die out of white card using the decorative die then cut it in half and added it to the edges of the stamped image.  I stamped a sentiment and cut it out with the oval from the Frosty Frame and mounted it across the stamped image.  I attached the entire piece in between the borders.  I cut Pine Cones out of kraft card, adding white gel pen accents and Iced Snow and cut the greenery out of card from my stash.  I added them to the corner of the card. White and red mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  8 1/4" in size.  Scroll down for card number two.





Card number two is a cheerful Gingerbread man card.  I started with the background and embossed coconut white card with the same Twisted Holly embossing folder.  I cut one Lattice Ribbon die out of red card and extended the length on it.  I cut it directly down the centre of it to create two smaller pieces then added a thin strip of red card to both of the cut sides. I glued these along the edges, top and bottom, of my embossed background.  Next I cut three gingerbread men out of tan card.  I used Worn Lipstick through the die for their cheeks.  I added red bows and buttons and white icing strips on their arms and legs.  I used red and white Bakers Twine and tied bows between them and string them across the card so they looked like they were attached.  I cut the sentiment from the set and shadowed it in black and added it to the top of the card seated upon the oval from the Frosty Frame die set.  The card was completed with white, red and tan mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/4" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Wonderful cards Sue, love them both. No 1 gets my vote today, so pretty and classic Christmas. Love the little men though.
My Hochanda Industrial chic dies arrived yesterday. They are stunning Sue, so happy with them.
Sharon, it will do you good, Cyorus is a beautiful island.
June Horrocks, sorry to hear you have been ill, hope things brighten for you soon.
June, glad the Duabetic class helped you.
Elaine, special hugs for you and your family, you are a stabilising factor in your family.
Saba, sorry I didn't mean to pry but I'm glad the CT scan result was good. Let's hope they get the problem sorted soon. Might have to start to wear flatties though, those heels can't be good for your back.
Laine, ouch, poor you. Let's hope you are less swollen and sore today and you can have a good nosh. Your outfit sounds perfect for Strictly.
Susan, thanks for the tip about the alternative crackle glaze, will try that.
We have thick frost this morning. My red car looks like it has been glittered with white crystals. Take care everyone.
Hugs to all,especially our poorly and missing friends.

Nanny Joo Joo from sunny Scunny said...

Good morning Sue,

I just adore those gingerbread designs. As I think I’ve said before, I’m using them to make cards for my class this year. I think they are suitable for those gingerbread people fanatic adults too though!

Have a good day,
Nanny JooJoo from sunny Scunny xx

Heather Rogers said...

Hi Sue

Two cute cards. I love the first one a 'sack full of promise!' I just want to know what's in all the presents. :) However the little gingerbread men are so sweet I like how you have joined them together with bakers twine absolutely beautiful.

Have a great day Sue thanks for sharing your ideas. I got my die yesterday and it cuts beautifully!

Hi Sue, two gorgeous cards today. They are both lovely but I think the first ones is probably my favourite.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. I love this build up you treat us to every Friday it's so helpful. I must compliment you on your shading and bringing your stamps to life, it's a talent I'd love to own and it's amazing that with the right kind of tools this is the end product, absolutely beautiful.
What a smile your Gingerbread card would bring to the younger generation it's just cute and lovely all in one envelope. I really wish I'd ordered a few of the newest festive dies, as I'm now thinking gift tags for children's gifts and maybe a few for someone's tree ? These I'll more than likely invest in ready for next November market as I'm in preparation for Sunday's market where I'll have to take both all my festive cards plus my every occasion baskets too ! Think I need to hire a removal van lol
I will finish my thoughts of the day with my usual love and hugs and hope you had an enjoyable day yesterday xxx

Netty The Runner said...

Both cards are equally as nice, but I would have to go for the gingerbread men. They are so cute.

Have a great day.

Ann said...

Good Morning Sue. Wonderful cards this morning. Love them both so I can't choose a favourite. But these remind me of children's christmasses long ago. It's a shame my grandchildren are too old for these now or I would be making them. But I will certainly keep them to mind for other young members of family and friends. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Clai01 said...

Love both cards Sue but got to give my vote to the first card because I love the colouring esp the sack! I would love you to do a colouring and stamping show on Hochanda sometime with Distress markers as i love the way you colour and always have done.
Yes I go back many years to the other channel! kind of feel these lovely stamps get a little overlooked or not much air time? Hope someone from Hochanda reads this as a stamping and colouring masterclass from Sue would be fabulous for beginners also. x
The sack looks wonderful and so realistic ! 10/10 x

Anne said...

Two great cards, Sue, but the first one wins for me.

Lynne L said...

rosemary powell said...

Hi Sue and everyone.
Sue 2 lovely cards, I prefer the first one. I agree with the lady who said a demo on Hochanda would be good for stamps love and huggles.
Pam we too have a frosty start to the day with sunshine, better than the rain. I was very careful with my crutches when taking dog for a walk but hubby is always with me. Love and huggles.
Elaine love and huggles to you all.
Donita and Crewe Trish love and huggles to you both.
Diane hope you are feeling better now. Love and huggles.
Laine .Are you going to strictly? I am sssssooooo jealous. You must let me know all about it. Seeing Gorka up close will be a real treat!!!. Who do you think will go this weekend? Think it might be Susan. What a shocker last week Debbie in bottom two. But on the last dance she made mistakes, Johnny didn't so she should of gone think it's a bit fixed with the judges. Hope you are feeling a bit better today love and huggles and to you all xxxxxxxxx 🌼

Dear Sue and Craftynettes,

The first one is aces for me. But those gingerfolk are sure adorable with their heart buttons and bakers-twine bows.
So glad for this group.

Hi Sue, two gorgeous Christmas cards. I love them both. Your present stamp beautifully coloured in on the first card. The so cute gingerbread men on the second are gorgeous and so much detail.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, two really lovely cards today. I adore the cute little gingerbread people who almost look as though they are dancing and I love the stamped & coloured Santa's sack. I don't remember seeing this stamp before, will have to look for it in readiness for next year.

Like Pam we had a very heavy frost earlier but that has now given way to rain that wants to be snow but thankfully the ground is too wet for it to settle as I have to go out shortly.

Hope everyone manages to stay warm and dry and has a good day.

Hello Sue,
The little gingerbread men is such a sweet card but my favourite today is the first card. Red an d white on Christmas cards always does it for me. The pine cones just add that little bit extra to what is a fabulous card. My cosmopolitan cocktail die set arrived today, thank you so very much, I'm looking forward to using it.

Pam I didn't think you were prying at all, just concerned. You are a sweetie.
Donita I hope you are alright, bit of a short post from you today.
CraftyJo, you're a braver "man" than me, no way would you get me on a motorbike even if it did have 3 wheels.
Carmen hope you are alright too.

Hi Sue. WOW !!! Not one but TWO gorgeous Christmas cards !!! I really love them both, but if I had to pick a favourite one it would be the first one. My most favourite Christmas cards are the traditional ones and the first card says classic, traditional, elegance to me !!! It is stunning Sue. I love the cute little gingerbread people on the second card and the beautiful lattice ribbon die. I think the colour combo of both cards is perfect. I adore the Garland Edger Die on the first card. I can see that both of the Edger dies from both cards could easily be used all year round. Fantastic versatility !!! Thank you Sue for sharing these two gorgeous cards.
