Cards by Card Designer

Card Designer Joan Morrison has been hard at work making Christmas cards using alot of dies from Sue Wilson's  Creative Expressions 2017 Festive Collection.  Here are several she has come up with so far.  Absolutely beautiful.  These dies as usual, can really make some spectacular cards with little effort.  Joan also likes to use Creative Expressions Cosmic Simmer Metallic Gilding Polish, Gilding Flakes, Glitter Kiss and Pixie Powders on her projects. They make awesome and easy backgrounds. If you would like to order any of these dies or products she used you can call 574-784-9050
or send an e-mail to: myjoansgardens@yahoo.com



 
These cards were made using the CED3090
Stained Glass Poinsettia die.





There are so many different ways you can use
these Stained Glass dies.  You can cut out the 
design and put it on a background brushed with
Glitter Kiss Polish or Gilding Flakes or do in-lay
of different colors if desired.  Many options.
This is CED3091 Stained Glass Robin Redbreast.



 
These 2 cards feature CED3105 Poinsettia
Cluster used in different ways. The embossing
folder used was EF055 Contemporary Poinsettia
brushed with Metallic Gilding Polish in Enchanted 
Gold for shimmer. Also used were CED3098 
Merry & Bright on the top card and CEC839
Christmas Sayings Clear Stamp Set.



I love the look of this Stitched Snowflake Striplet
CED3111 and especially in this color combo.



This card features components from 2 different
dies from the Festive Collection.  The outer frame
is from CED3092 Twinkle Star Frames and then
the inset is CED3089 Three Wise Men.
The background was created with Distress Oxide
Inks in Broken China, Faded Jeans and Wilted Violet.




Two slightly different looks using 4 of the same
dies.  CED3113 Lattice Ribbon, CED3104 Berry
Bough, CED3106 Holly Swirl, CED3008 Classic
Poinsettia, and CED5512 Noble Collection - Dbl.
Pierced Rectangles.  Also featured is CEC839
Christmas Sayings Clear Stamp Set.



Although a little hard to see from the picture,
this card features the new Frosty Frame CED3122.
Also featured is the CED3113 Lattice Ribbon (cut
3 times to create the background) layered over the
striking red and white striped paper.
The CED3106 Holly Swirl and CED3104 Berry
Bough along with CED3008 Classic Poinsettia
were used to embellish.  Love it.



Ohhh...this CED3123 Lace Snowflake is
so pretty. Also featured is one component
of the CED3107 Snowflake Edger.


I have to say, for some reason, this card just put me
in the mood for making Christmas cards!
How awesome is this CED3092 Twinkle Star Frame die?
Also featured is the CED3103 Pine Cone & Greenery,
and the CED3102 Tidings of Comfort & Joy die.



I love the copper and gold tones of this card that
features the CED3125 Holly Lattice Frame.
Also featured are CED3104 Berry Bough, 
CED3008 Classic Poinsettias, and CED3099
From Our House to Yours.
This stunning card features the older Sue Wilson
CED3041 Winter Trees die with this year's
Woodland Collection CED3095 Forest Animals,
CED3097 Winter Wonderland, and CED3107 
Snowflake Edger.
Look how wonderful the deer from CED3095
Forest Animals look when paired with the
CED3096 Birch Tree Forest die. 



 These last 4 cards show the absolute beauty of the
2017 Christmas Angel
 
On this card, Joan cleverly added an extra wing
for added dimension and detail.  Note the great
background with debossed stars that is part of the
Christmas Angel die set.  Simply embellished 
with CED3008 Classic Poinsettia and CED3106
Holly Swirl. 
 


 Beautiful gold and black card.  Look how she
shimmers.  Also featured is the CED3127 Twinkle
Star Background covered with Gilding Flakes,
CED3008 Classic Poinsettia and CED3104
Berry Bough.

 This card was created using a little bit 
different technique.  The angel image was
cut into the mirror card stock and then layered
on top of of the beautiful background.
Would you believe that background is actually
a paper towel?!  Joan used it to wipe off her
craft mat after using the inks and Pixie Powder
to color the paper she cut the CED3008 Classic
Poinsettias out of.  It was too pretty to just throw
away...how clever is that?
The outer frame was made using the EF057 Holly
Lattice Embossing folder and brushing with the
Enchanted Gold or Pearl Lustre Metallic Gilding
Polish then embellished with the poinsettias and
3106 Holly Swirl.

 As you can see, Joan has used the same dies over 
and over on several of these cards.  You can see
their versatility, beauty and worth.
