White Rose Christmas...

Happy Friday,

Another day another sneak Peak I'm afraid lol!  Today's set to show is The Christmas Rose Sentiments, whilst this set is designed to match with the Christmas Rose set it is also intended to be used on its own.  When I was planing my Christmas Release I thought it would be nice if i matched the stamps and Stamps to Die for to existing dies that you may have.  That means that this, and all of my stamps to die for, will match current die ranges hopefully extending your collection further by allowing them to now be used for your Christmas cards.  The first set to do this is the Christmas Rose sentiments as this matches with the Portuguese collection.  The central shape will match, and Mat and Layer with the central shape that Sue Wilson used for this collection the Sintra die form the range cuts the sentiment out but also the other shapes will create beautiful layers for these sentiments as well.





the reminder of the Stamp to die for Collection, to be launched next week, will match with the Greek collection as I just couldn't resist all the Ivy that goes through that collection.

The card above, which will be demonstrated on next weeks shows, will get a day on the blog but you may notice a new background stamp on this the reverse Ivy lace stamp which will be on next weeks shows as well.

You can see here how I have made the sentiment stamp the main focus of the card along with the background.  I designed each of these sentiment stamps to have a different spray of the Christmas Roses on them, on this stamp it glides down the bottom left and I have emphasised the roses by adding some Cosmic Shimmer glue and sugaring the flowers with Diamond Snow.





I'm reliably informed that All products AVAILABLE NOW at your favourite craft retailer. However the paper pad is nut yet available it is marked as coming soon!

Another peak tomorrow,

Enjoy...

  26. What a great idea to make your stamps co-ordinate with existing dies. The only problem is I don't have the dies! Another birthday is looming so may be my visit to CE Towers will resolve the problem!
    A lovely card, John.

  46. This is stunning John. I know you and Sue often makes card fronts rather than fold cards but I have been wondering how recipients then display them? I have tried to fit 'stands' made of yardstick but they are never strong enough. If you have any suggestions, I would be very grateful since I like to make large cards and card fronts only would be so much easier! Thanks in advance!
