Stylish Reindeer part 2

Good evening, follow this link to see the second card I made using the Woodware Stylish Reindeer stamp .

Back tomorrow with the third card


One stamp three ways

Hopefully this will work, I am sharing one of three cards I made using the Stylish Reindeer stamp from Woodware. This card is completely flat besides the sentiment. I stamped the Reindeer in Walnut Stain ink, the foliage stamps are inked with Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint, Candied Peel and Walnut stain Oxide inks. I created a box with a pencil and then lined post it notes and when it was completed I went over it again with a Brown fine liner pen.

Guess what no its still not letting me upload photos, so follow this link to my blog for photo.

The sentiment comes in the stamp set and is inked with Candied Peel Oxide and mounted onto a scrap of Brown card. I finished off with some Diamond Stickles.

Back tomorrow with the second card


John Lockwood New Release Stencil

Todays card using his new Snow stencil from Johns new collection . It has been inked through with Versacolor White ink. The tree, from his Winter tree stamp set from last year, has been embossed with Silver Sparkles from Wow. The Oval die is from Presscut and the snow drift at the bottom has been created using the Sue Wilson Hills and Clouds die set.

Don’t forget the sale is now on 20% off everything. Bookings also being taken for the Spellbinders Glimmer machine with the fabulous Christine Emberson on Saturday the 15th September. You can choose morning or afternoon times and the cost is £15.00. Here is a link to a little Facebook video she did of the machine. This is a great chance to have a lesson from the UK Spellbinders Ambassador and get to use this wonderful new machine before buying.

John Lockwood New Release

Hi there, what a miserable bank holiday we are having !! hopefully the bad weather has given you an excuse to do some crafting.

My card today uses the new release Poinsettia stamp and die , together with the Holly Quilt stencil by John Lockwood .

The stamp gives you a sheet of flowers and the die matches them exactly so instead of stamping and die cutting individual flowers you can do them all in one go through the machine. I needed some foliage so I used the new Sue Wilson Christmas Stems die and I embossed the stencil and added some Creative Expressions Berry Red PVA. I finished off with Mark Richards Gold nailhead.

Apologies, wordpress wont let me upload photo, here is a link to our FB where I  have posted the photo.
