John Lockwood New Release

Today I am sharing 2 cards I made recently for classes using some new products from John Lockwood. First one is the Poinsettia stamps and co-ordinating die, together with the Holly Quilt stencil. The foliage die is new from Sue Wilson and is called Christmas Stems. I added some Berry Red PVA from Cosmic Shimmer for the berries and some Mark Richards Gold Nailheads for the centres .





The second card using his new Snow stencil which has been inked through with Versacolor White ink. The tree, from his Winter tree stamp set from last year, has been embossed with Silver Sparkles from Wow. The Oval die is from Presscut and the snow drift at the bottom has been created using the Sue Wilson Hills and Clouds die set.

Stampin Up Blended Seasons

Stampin Up have brought out a stamp and die set called Blended Seasons. Its only available until the end of August. I have made 3 different cards using some of the stamps and dies in the bundle.

On the first one I used the new Watercolour pencils that have also been produced for a limited period.

 
In this card I cut up the holly bough into separate pieces. The paper on the back is from a new collection coming in the new book called Festive Farmhouse .


 
 
Lastly, the leaf stamps were coloured with SU inks in Cajun Craze, Old Olive and Blackberry Bliss. I used the Shimmer cardstock, hopefully you can see better in the closer photo.
