Here Comes Santa

Hi bloggers!  Good morning and welcome back!  You saw the Flying Santa a couple of days ago, but I just felt it needed an equally cool sentiment to go with it.  The "Here Comes Santa" die is on offer this post and I think it works so well with the Flying Santa die, don't you?  I have steampunked it up a bit by adding the cog in the centre of the "o" but it is still very pretty and will work with both grungy and elegant cards equally I feel.  If you like the look of this one, please leave your comment on this post.  I would love to know what you think of this mini release so far?  Are you surprised by the non traditional nature of it or embracing it as something different and needed in the Christmas market?  The next post will be online at 12 noon today.  I would love to see you back here then!  All for now, Sue x

Such a clever sentiment to go with the other dies.

Marion Scott said...

Good morning Sue,

Such a fun sentiment that works perfectly with the flying Santa (my favourite so far) but as you say would work as well with other cards.

Morning Sue, a great sentiment die, was wondering on the first card which set it would appear in. Love your card, especially the background with the black silhouettes. Have a great day everyone. Bx

Hello Sue and all
Loved this sentiment on the first sample, your fonts are always so interesting but clear to read Sue. The pixie powder background suits these dies so well

Fab word die. Love the card.

Steph Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. The nicest so far and a sentiment I'd probably use more than any of the new collection but what I love more than anything is the forest of tree's with the dear sweet little cabin tucked away. I did check in with the last post yesterday I just forgot to hit the publish button ! Waiting to see what inspiration you have for the rest of the day and I send my usual hugs xxx

TDQ Karen said...

I loved your previous industrial die but wasn't expecting these. They are definitely different and make a big change to other products for the holiday season. Love the nod to streamlining this sentiment x

Steampunk!

Good morning Sue,
Another lovely card with your sentiment die which I noticed on first post. I love that you are doing steampunk sentiments & not just main dies. Yvonne xx

carol edwards said...

Hello Sue, I like this sentiment very much. The style is great and something different needed by the market. It's good to be different sometimes.xx

rolfi said...

Hi Sue,

your card is fabulous and the dies are unusual but I love them...

Ann said...

Good Morning Sue. Another lovely die. Grunge.. Industrial Chic..traditional..this die can be used for any festive card no matter what style of card craft you like. I have loved all the dies in this mini launch, it has shown us a very different craft style from you Sue, and the samples you have shown us are beautiful. This launch...I think..... could sway any traditional crafter into... "just having a go"... at something different. Good luck with the launch Sue. Someone is going to be very lucky. Sending best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

BenteS said...

Great sentiment! Love the design :))

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

Love the font with the cog in the middle and thank you for showing a card using the flying Santa with the treescape die which I already have, so now I don't have to imagine how they would look together I can see it already made up for me...

Yvonne19856 said...

Hi Sue. Love the sentiment. Seeing the font with steampunk aspects too is lovely.
One thing though. Is it possible that at some point you start doing full alphabets in all your wonderful fonts and scripts that you have designed. I do love the sentiments of a great many of your collections and I have loads of them, but when making personalised cards and gifts, it would be great if I could use the contrasting alphabet to make it all matching. Hope you don't mind my asking.
Can't wait to see the next design. Xxx

stitchingranny said...

Like this sentiment - something different as I haven't actually seen this wording before.

Donita Naylor said...

Oh! The house and trees from Believe in the Magic! I could do that!

I agree your whole Steampunk Christmas launch is inspired. And the script for this sentiment could serve as a sleigh if Santa's sleigh somehow broke.

This year I might as well send each person a different card. Why do I have so many Christmas dies? I know why. Because you keep coming out with even better ones. Could you take a break, maybe?

But if you do come out with more mechanical creatures, I would like an owl, please.

Love this Santa die and the sentiments is just perfect. Super card.

Littlelamb said...

Good Sentiment die to go with the Santa die. As Donita says an Owl would be good. No favourite so far as I like all the new dies. Thank you.

Marie.P. from Longridge said...

I finally got to comment on this card so the queue must have gone.
I actually do like the card although Punk is not my favourite.
It is certainly different from your usual style but you could probably make a 'silk purse out of a sow's ear'.
(A saying of my Mum's)
Bye for now.

Hi Sue
Just got in and Wow! I love the sentiment and the tree silhouette dies! I personally love the steampunk collection and I think there is a need on the market for dies in this style, but I know it's not to everybody's taste.
