Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!! Digi Discounts till the end of the year!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!
Digi Discounts till the end of the year!
That's right, all the digi's in the shop have been reduced by 25% due to the VAT change happening on the first Jan, at which time I will no longer offer digital goods. I am just not able to offer digital goods until the rest of my business can be VAT registered! I will be working on new products which should help against this issue, like pre-printed colouring sheets or CD rom digi's.
Hope you have all enjoyed a beautiful Christmas with family and friends, we had a lovely time, although not quite our usual, Thank you for all your support during this time!
Have a wonderfully creative day!!!

Last minute Christmas cards

I just wanted to stop by today and show off a few last minute card ideas. I managed to have a little time yesterday to get inky with some of my Christmas stamps... They were so quick to make, I do like to mass produce but my limit is probably ten per design.

Here's Snowman with just a few coloured pencils...I have a step by step of this technique in this months Craft Stamper...
and this Santa has a sprinkling of wink of Stella all over, very sparkly and Christmassy!!!
Even more featuring Snowman... for the background I simply dry embossed the snowflakes dies, stamped my snowman in viridian archival ink, masked with frisket film and inked the background with distress inks. Then with a waterbrush and distress ink I added shadows to the scarf and coloured the hat, his body is also covered with glitter, finished of with Christmas wishes sentiment.
I created the background with distress inks, sprinkled water and even added some of the speckles from this set with perfect pearls... The large sentiment stamp was heat embossed in white on vellum. Those fabulous wooden embellishments were a super buy from paperchase.
I was attempting a collage effect with this card, I inked and stamped the background first, using A lot like Christmas script stamp and the Joy Peace Love. The reindeer from Reindeer fusions is stamped in archival and coloured with white paint pen. I added a few birds from the set to his antlers... quite a good manly Christmas card.
And this is a work in progress, stamped in grey ink and coloured using copics!!!

I can't believe it's only five more sleeps till the big day! My children are very excited, although it's going to be a very different Christmas this year without mum! 
I want to thank all of my customers for a wonderful year! I hope you can pop by over the next week to see what I'm doing about the latest VAT assault!!!

Have a wonderfully creative Christmas,

Introducing ~ Witch Pin Up & Prizes

Witch Pin Up
And lastly complimenting our Pin Up collection is this sexy Witch stamp set. She is aimed at the more 'grown up' audience. She will be available as a digital stamp for INSTANT gratification. The set will include various versions, with or without tattoos, just the torso for a great card topper and the faint outline for the no-line colouring as with all my digital stamps in fact I think I counted thirteen images! Hows that for choice? 

The Details:
  • The digi will be available for purchase on Fri 10th Oct.
  • It will retail for £3.50
  • Witch Pin Up contains a total of 13 images, a black and white outline and a faint outline for the no line colouring technique. She has tattoos, a black cat, a broom, just the torso, all included.
Do scroll down to see how you can win the whole of this months new release...
Now onto some samples... 
I've opted for the torso version, I thought she would fill a card front lovely.
But, then created a little easel card so I could add the sentiment without covering her up. The sentiment is from Dillon Batwings.
I have coloured her with copics (of course), 
I struggled deciding what to do with the background but just went for a soft mistiness also using my copics!

Well, I hope you've enjoyed the week of releases, the new stamps will be available to purchase tomorrow yay! and now it's time to head over to see what our talented team have created!

WOW what a week I'm so happy you stopped by to check out the new stamps and if you leave a comment letting me know your favourite you have the chance to win the whole release!!!

Have a wonderfully creative day!
