Take One Woodware Christmas stamp......

Howdy Campers n Crafters!

Sheesh! Saturday has sneaked back around Muy Rapido this week lol!  
It is a glorious day here in Cheshire - Hope it is the same with you :-)

Today I am going to share some of those dreaded C word cards with you as there are only 10 Saturdays til it is upon us!  

Yesterday Mum and I took a trip to High Legh Garden centre for coffee and the craft shop. While we there Mum espied a card made using this stamp from Woodware


She isn't a stamper but is beginning to fancy a go. While unpacking our purchases I decided to have a practice with it.........and oops if I didn't get carried away!!

So here is my take on the one stamp challenge I gave myself last night :-)


These first two cards were coloured using the Gorjayous Wink of Stella pens - I really have fallen head over heals for their subtle glimmer factor!
To add more interest the card on the left is decoupaged - it's an ideal stamp for this as it's easy to see where needs cutting.

After this I decided to go for a slightly more glamour-unge style




This time I used Distress Inks and Distress stains to create the backgrounds (I particularly love the metallic stains for adding Christamssey shimmer :-) ) and chose to ink the stamp in parts rather than as a whole.

I hope you like my first Christmas offering - I am sure there will be more to follow - I guess it's inevitable with the silly season bearing down on us!! 

Have a good weekend and I will see you all soon

Crafty Cheers for now

Love 

Rae
