Over the last week I have been having a basic play with some of the new dies which we have in. As usual I have tried to look at different ways of using them and different colour combination. Later on I will try using them with other products and more complex cards. The 4 main dies I have chosen are all from the new Sue Wilson collections from creative expressions and we have these in stock.

 Then I also tried a few more for the Woodware stamps board. ( Admittedly some were adapted from their catalogue and our retailer workshop card). All the tree scenes use different powders from Stampendous to create the effects. My favourite snowman is also from Stampendous

I mentioned the woodware retailer workshop last time. We had Fran from Stampendous, Susan from Clear scraps and Kay from Hougie  as well as Jane and Francoise from Woodware doing the workshops. Judith and her team always give us a wonderful couple of days with lots of food and drink (non- alcoholic of course)
These are the cards we produced (with a few other bits filling the board on the bottom row)

Some of these ideas will be used in our workshops (as you can see by the trio of trees last post)
others will be modified slightly and some will just be examples of the products that are available.

woodware stamps

Well I'm sorry not to have posted for 3 weeks - I thought I had scheduled some for the weeks I was away but must have done something wrong!!! anyway back on track now.
The first weekend of September I went on the woodware retailer workshop - cards from that I will try and schedule for a few days time to check it works, but since by return I have tried out some ideas for my woodware workshop using their new stamps Some ideas worked better than others but I've shown most of them to give an idea on the versatility of the stamps. Other variations are still to be tried. The trees use lots of the powders from Stampendous to give the wintery feel.

the trio of trees can be used upside down as baubles as shown.
