Trimming The Tree

I think my favourite designs for Christmas Cards have to be Trees. This stamp, designed by Francoise Read for Woodware and Creative Expressions, is no exception!

Once stamped, you can add a small amount of colour using your favourite medium (I used watercolour markers on this sample) and a touch of glitter! Very quick for batch making if you have lots to send.

Happy crafting!

Let it Snow

This is a fairly easy Festive design, which can be made in lots of different colour ways.

The only part which needs some preparation time is the shaker star treat cup, as the glue takes a while to dry on the acetate.

Let It Snow

Here is a cheeky little Snowman for you!

He is from the Woodware clear stamp, designed by Francoise Read.

This image can be coloured in so many ways and then placed onto co-ordinating card.

If you think the clear circle falling snow looks 3-dimensional, it is! I blobbed on some of the Cosmic Shimmer dries clear acrylic glue and left it to dry. The result are these 3-D domed bubbles.

Happy crafting!
