I can't bee-lieve it's almost Christmas

A while ago I set a challenge for Joanne Wardle to make a Christmas card using the Medium Bee with Small Bee on the Side stamp Jo designed for Stampotique Originals and this is the festive result.

Jo also had a play and produced "We Bee Kings". I am really enjoying these stamps getting new leases of life at Christmas and will be raiding my own stash for inspiration next year.

Helen Chilton has been in the gift making mood. This wood block features the Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology stamps and Helen has done an online class on how to make it.

This will be my last post before Christmas so I do hope you all have a fabulous time, that the weather does not cause any more disrupution (yes we are under a white blanket again!) and that peace and joy reigns all round.

A Very Merry Christmas to you

Slides are About

Having spent 2 weeks now sliding about in snow and ice it's rather refreshing to see a different kind of slide. Here Helen Chilton has made some delicious ornaments for the Christmas Tree using Memory Glass, Old St Nick stamp and Glitz papers. The full instructions to make them are in our online classes "Stamped Projects" section.

We also have a great online class, again by Helen, on making this wonderful Tag Book using the Artisitc Outpost "Oz Collage" stamps.

Hope you are all staying warm in this arctic weather and
having fun with all your Christmas preparations.

Snowy Days

Here at Happy Daze towers we are, literally, knee deep in snow, very beautiful and very Christmassy. Helen Chilton, as you can see, has also been in the Christmas mood making cards using non Christmas stamps. Greetings uses "Home" by Artistic Outpost and "Winter Tree" uses "The Outpost" stamp plate also by Artistic Outpost. Helen says: " although this stamp isn’t from a Christmas plate, by choosing your colours carefully and adding a bit of bling, you get a really seasonal feel!"
