Wine Bottle Book

Vicky made a little book / mini album using our Large Wine Bottle stamp.
Embossed in gold twinkle onto purple card twice and then cut out and a concertina piece of card fixed between the two to create the book.

Friday 20 December 2013


Vicky made both these cards using our Large Wine Bottle rubber stamp and some of our sentiment circle stamps.
The bottom card has the bottle embossed in a plain gold powder but the label around the neck is embossed is gold twinkle (not so easy to see in this picture but makes a difference to the finished card).
The script inside the label is from our Potpourri No.1 set.
The cork, the glasses and the engagement ring are all in the set with the bottle.

Simple Elegant Snowflakes

I think Lesley made this card, using our 3D Snowflake Stamp set, Banners and Unmounted Greetings sets.

Chris made this card using the same 3D Snowflake stamp set, which is simply embossed on white onto kraft card.  It also looks really effective in a white sparkle embossing powder.

Gold leaf everything

This scene is from our Bethlehem stamp set.  All these cards have been created by stamping the images with Versamark and embossing with Sticky Stuff Embossing Powder and then covering with gilding flakes/gold leaf.  I use a stipple brush to brush away the excess leaf and to burnish.

Also from our Bethlehem stamp set.

The Wreath is from our Holly Christmas stamp set.

This is our Noel unmounted rubber stamp set.

3D Snowflakes

Lisa West made all these cards using our 3D Snowflaket unmounted rubber stamp set plus greetings from our Greetings Unmounted stamp set.
In this first card Lisa has stamped the large snowflake in black/grey and then then stamped the separate elements overlapping the original image with green and blue ink.

For this card Lisa has used the stame stamps but this time layered over a rosette.

Lisa stamped the large snowflake onto white shrink plastic in blue ink.  The Happy Christmas greeting is stamped inside one of our Banner stamps.

Cling Mounted vs Unmounted Rubber Stamps

We are considering mounting our individual stamps onto cling mount and selling stamps that way instead of just the rubber.  Obviously the cost will increase a little - would you prefer to purchase rubber stamps this way?

Our sets will still be unmounted for now.

Please let me know your thoughts.
