Friday 5th November - Afternoon session with Jane.
This session was all based around Jane's Woodware, Christmas Bubble Tree stamps set. Not a new set as it was released 2 years ago now but still packs quite an impact. Once again there are peeloffs also made in the design and available in gold, silver, black and white but this workshop just used the stamp set. As with the bauble and wreath cards the bubbles were filled with anything blingy to hand ....
The first card was a pyramid card cut from a template provided by Jane. The greeting was another of Jane's Woodware stamp sets - Christmas Sentiments A variety of snowflakes were punched ... any make of punch ... from the same card used for the card blank. The tree was stamped onto the middle panel and filled with the bling then snowflakes were stuck on around the remaining card sides with a couple of half snowflakes stuck to the middle panel. The card will fit into an A5 envelope.
The 2nd card is A5 but landscape. To obtain the blank an A4 piece of card was cut in half across the short side. One piece was scored and light folded about an 1.5 inches from one edge and that was then stuck to the other piece of card. DP was cut to size, stuck in place and then 2 holes were punched with a Crop-a-dile to thread ribbon through. The tree was stamped onto a piece of cream/ivory Bazzill which had been cut to size to fit front of card. A toning chalk was used over the stamped image before the tree was blinged up. A strip of matching DP was adhered near the bottom of the card and a greeting, matted, layered and popped with foam pads for a bit of dimension. The greeting was made using the Crafts Too embossing folder - Christmas Greetings. I particularly like this card.
