I must apologise for my lack of visiting last week.  I just don't know where the time went.  I am going to visit everyone this week that visited me last week.  It is not like me as I do very much like my WOYWW fix each week.  You can tell how busy I have been as I haven't posted on my blog at all since last WOYWW either (follow the link if you don't know what WOYWW is - after reading this of course!! :-))

So on my desk and endeavouring to keep it short, for a change!!  I bought two fab stamps from the aptly named Gorjuss range and I have been having loads of fun colouring in as you can see.  They are a couple of samples for my class on Friday.  I am hoping that I have done Christmas with a twist.  I am covered in glamour dust as I have been adding just the tiniest touch of sparkle.  As you can see I am almost there - just some of the fiddly cutting with a craft knife left to do.

In my second and final photo my guillotine is acting as a card stand whilst these samples dry off.  I loved doing the splodges to make a snowy background on the bottom card.  I also had fun using the lovely Iced Spruce and Peacock feathers distress inks to get what I hope is another alternative colour combo - the iced spruce makes it look like it could snow for days - I am not sure that that tree trunk will stand up to much more!

I am off to nosy around before I get back to finishing my samples off....colouring in, nosing, colouring in, nosing sounds like a perfect mornings work to me!!!

Thanks for popping by X

  6. That's two great cards Helen. I love the orange and black one. It is such an unusual combo for Christmas, and you colour the images so well!
    I also like the second set of colours. I have those two ink pads so I might give that a go.

  8. Helen these are just beautiful! Love your new stamps, that girl sitting on the bear is just awesome. Never thought of using sponging or drops of water on the ink to create falling snow. That card really dose look like it is snowing. I'm late making rounds today, but thanks for stopping by my blog.
