Wow! What a fabulous giveaway. My favourite card is the first card with the snowy trees and Santa flying overhead. With the layering of the die cuts it looks so 3D. These dies are cut through Cardstock effortlessly to give a really crisp edge which is so important. I'm now a follower of your wonderful blog and already follow Sue's blog. I've posted the photo in my sidebar and have my fingers and toes crossed :D. Debra x

sweetpea said...

It's hard to choose one card but I think the first card because I love those trees. I love to watch Sue and take inspiration from her beautiful cards. These die's cut so easy and they all work so well together. What a fantastic give away and beautiful cards made with them.

All yours cards are really lovely and gorgous, but my favourite is the third card with traditional colours and the poinsettia ministriplet: this die is one of my (so much...) "must have" !!

Gail said...

I'm going to be commenting on the card with the gold bow since our challenge is you have to have a homemade bow on your card.

I love the shape of this red and gold card and the dies you used as well as the Santa and sleigh. The way you put the pearls on the sleigh's reins and the pearl in the center of your bow...wonderful. Those little touches are what make a card go from being pretty to gorgeous. The gold ribbon is beautiful and it appears to have tied wonderfully...your bow is wonderful looking. Thanks for joining us at Craft-Dee BowZ for our August challenge. Hugs, Gail

Carol L said...

I don't wish to be included in the draw, but what you've done with these dies is phenomenal!! I just love the elegant feel of each one of your creations and the colors and dies look amazing! I'm particularly fond of that wavy sentiment panel in the third card, but the Santa and sleigh are just delightful in the way you've used them all! Well done on this wonderful collection of cards!

Robin said...

These are all just so amazing! I don't think I can pick one to be my favorite. I have been following Sue for awhile now and what I love the most about her creations are the gorgeous details. Anyone using these can't help but make something beautiful with them. Thanks so much for offering them in a candy! Hugs, Robin

Rebecca/Sydney's Sentiments said...

These are all so very beautiful! I think I am partial to your first card. I love how you did the trees...so very pretty. I love Sue's dies. They are all so detailed and exquisite! Thanks for the candy offer. Hope you have a great day, Rebecca

Robin Clendenning said...

Yes, indeed I'd like to win! I think I like the silver and black the best! Do you cut each die several times to make it look so 3-D?

America said...

Hi Robin! Yes, I love the look of 3-D and will normally will cut my dies 2-3 times each to glue and layer them together for dimension, (looks fab -especially if you can go shades darker for layers that give the cuts depth). Also great ways to use up scraps! :)

Wendy L said...

Wow these are amazing, love your style, xxxx

Out of your cards the HoHoHo is my favourite as I just adore that colour combo :)

lindagrady said...

Just found your blog recommended by K.Wallace. Love Sue Wilson's dies, esp. the poinsettia strips; so generous to offer the dies as a prize.

sandra wooden said...

I love your dies! I'm finding postage to be really expensive for my Christmas cards because of the volume. In making cards using your dies I am able to keep them flat and avoid extra postage for bulk. The plus is ...my cards are still BEAUTIFULLY made; your designs are so beautifully structured they speak for themselves! They are so intricate my friends marvel over how I made them. I say, "I use Sue Wilson dies!" LOL

Aśko JGM said...

omg, what an amazing candy!!! your cards are so beautiful ;)) I don't have christmas dies so I'm here ;))

Love the cards, but I seem to be attracted to the "HO HO HO" card the most - followed by the trees die.

I don't own any Sue Wilson dies. We don't have them here at either one of the only two stores in town.

Keep Up the great work !!!
