Its all White now !!

This week over at Die cut Dreams Christmas Club Challenge we want you to make a card that is mainly white you can use a dash of colour but that's it just a dash, we want to see a creation with lots of white space.
I have used lovely Tilda as Lucia , what an angel she is...... I coloured her with Copic Markers. The Lovely beaded pin is made by my friend Vikki from Posh Pins & Charms it adds a touch of elegance to this card.
I have also used a Cuttlebug folder to add texture to the layers and break up the white space.
The sentiment stamp & punch is from SU and the lace/ribbon I found on eBay.
Lastly the lovely sparkly gems are from MAMBI, if you could see the sparkle you would agree its worth paying the extra for the great quality they are so lovely.
I made this card with my new plate card & stand kit that I designed , you will soon be able to buy the kit in my shop Die cut Dreams the kit will consist of 15 pieces to make 5 plate cards all you need to do is decorate the front surface in your own style, in the kit you will receive 5 x 6" scalloped circle and 5 x 5" plain edge circles to layer or 3D mount onto the scalloped circle as I have here with foam pads to give dimension, the kit also contains the 5 scored die cuts card stands, I designed the card stand die about 3 years ago to go with my book card and a couple of months ago I decided to makes large circle dies to go with it to make my version of a plate card.
Hopefully this time I won't have my ideas copied, as last week I had a number of emails urging me to look at someone selling die cuts on eBay, when I looked I was very surprised to see someone I had once thought of as a friend who I met through blogging had used their Pazzle cutting machine to try to compete with me, selling die cuts exactly the same shape as one of my new shape die cuts, I wouldn't mind so much but this person has a warning on their listing telling people not to copy her work/ Designs !!! lol what a joker can you believe it, I'm only posting this here to let them know I have seen the poor quality copies so have dozens of other people who have emailed and phoned me, When things like this happen its so nice to know just how many lovely caring friends I have out there thanks guys for letting me know.
Anyway this new kit will be in my shop later this week I hope you like them

Oh Susie, this is gorgeous! really elegant, love it!

Max said...

What a beautiful card Susie, thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
Sorry to hear about the issues with others copying your designs. Sadly it happens all the time and can be very difficult for customers to keep tabs on who did the designs first.
I suppose that others copying is the price designers have to pay when they share their ideas on the internet.

Oh Susie, I love it when you use loads of white! I've never tried it myself but everytime I see you do it, I think I must! You've inspired me yet again :)
Hope all is well.

Hi Susie,
This is stunning hun, I love it. Love white cards with just a splash of colour - soooo sophisticated!!
As for your competition - well let me tell you from my point of view - there is no competition. I suppose imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and you have to feel sorry for someone who doesn't have the brains to come up with these things themselves!!! I for one would only ever buy from you my friend!! Talking of which, I am putting an order together as we speak!!
