Cold Days Warm

Cold Days Warm - that is the name of this stamp from Printworks,
it is a wood mounted stamp available in our store or by telephone.
Lesley made these cards during our Demonstration Day on Saturday.
I believe she coloured them with alcohol pens, including the red border.

I couldn't decide on my favourite between the two 
so I thought I'd share them both with you and let you decide.

Festive Bouquet - Hanging

This is Lesley's Festive Bouquet on a card made by Brenda.
Brenda has stamped the bouquet four times in green ink and then coloured the berries/baubles in red and covered with Diamond Glaze/Glossy Accents for a glossy 3D effect.

It reminds me of waves in the sea - or am I seeing things?
Brenda has used our Paisley stamp with blues and greens to make this fabulous card.
I wish I had time to play as much as Brenda does - maybe when I retire in about 30 years!
