WOJ - Preview 2

I am definitely getting into the Christmas spirit early with all these gorgeous Christmas images from WOJ. I have been playing this weekend with the images from WOJ's stamp kit, I have been colouring with Copics, getting messy with embossing powders and having lots of fun with all the Christmas goodies in my stash.

I used a kraft tag and stamped the WOJ snowflakes on the background and then heat embossed them with white sparkle embossing powder. I then blended some Vintage Photo distress ink over the whole tag. WOJ's Henry has been coloured with Copics, fussy cut and finished off with some distress stickles to his wings and a touch to his star.


I created a matching gift box for a special little person and I am going to pop her Christmas present into it, so much nicer than the box the shop gives you :)


A view from the side, simple but added lace and the doily to give it that soft delicate finish.


The Christmas tree die cut is WOJ's Christmas Tree Nested Die-Light and I finished my tag off with some WOJ Vintage Button Twine and WOJ charm Christmas Treasure.


Don't forget WOJ's Fall and Winter stamp kits will be available on the 11th in digi's. Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments.

WOJ Preview Day 2

Today I have WOJ's gorgeous new 'Angel with Harp', this is a new release this month.


I wanted to create a soft vintage Christmas card with this gorgeous image so I went through my papers and found some My Minds Eye 'All is Bright', inked the edges with Distress Ink 'Vintage Photo' and machine stitched all the edges. Adhered a doily and then finished it off with some Prima and Wild Orchid flowers and a button with some WOJ 'Vintage Linen' Button Twine.


The sentiment is WOJ and comes with the 'Angel with Harp' image plus it comes with a second sentiment too!

Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments, don't forget WOJ's blog hop on the 29th!

WOJ October Project

This month's theme is 'Fall Decorations' so I doubled up on this one and decorated a box with a tag for a thank you gift!

For the tag I simply stamped 'Birdie Love' onto kraft cardstock and used white embossing powder, then did the same with the sentiment, the sentiment is WOJ's 'General Sayings II'. I cut around the image and left a border all the way around and created a hole at the top to add some WOJ 'Button Twine' to my tag.


I bought the box from a local store and was already the perfect colour for the Fall theme.


I added some burlap to add to the rustic theme and used Crate papers to decorate the box, perfect Fall colours. The leaf is WOJ's Die-Light 'Leaves Trio' and the rose is WOJ's Die-Light 'Rolled Scalloped Flower'.


I didn't adhere the tag, so the box can be used without my thank you note attached!


Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to pop over to WOJ's Blog to see the rest of the DT's October creations!

Its time for another sketch and this sketch is by the lovely Sandy, you can see it here.

This cutie is WOJ's 'You Colour My World' and its a free digi, you can get it here!

 
I am being very good and have been going through my supplies and trying to use them up instead of cutting into full sheets of papers. And I am actually enjoying it, finding all sorts of treasures, so I guess I am doing some spring cleaning to! So this card has been created from all sorts of goodies from my stash and the image has been coloured with Copics.
