Christmas Bling and Shrunken Snowmen


I went to another Jane Gill class at the Glitter Pot last Friday. Shouldn't have really, as there were lots of other things I was supposed to be doing, but it was a lovely peaceful break for the day. Lots of fun, and great company as usual. We were 'working' with some of the new stamp sets from Woodware that Jane has designed.

These first two cards are from her snowman set called Melting Snowmen. The top one uses an image that has two snowmen in it, stamped repeatedly across the page, coloured and then cut out before sticking to the silver backing card, with the addition of punched circles for snow. The greeting is also from the sst. The card below has another image of five snowmen, stamped onto white shrink plastic, coloured and then shrunk with great hilarity - lots of inexperienced shrinkers in the class, including me! We got there in the end. Unfortunately one of my snowmen lost an eye in the process, and his hat brim will never be the same again! So don't look too close. (Of course, you all will now!)



This third card was made using another of Jane's designs - a set called Christmas Bubble Tree. Jane gave us each a pot with a variety of shiny things to stick on all the circles on the tree to give it some bling. Kept a group of a dozen women quiet for a little while! Finished off with some micro beads on the trunk. The backing paper was created using a snowflake set from the stamp, and stickles in the centre of the flakes. Time consuming, but very easy!
