Allsorts challenge week 344 - What's New

Well those two week flew by, didn't they?
Happy New Year Everyone

Just when you thought it was all over and not even Rudolph Day yet, here I am with some more Christmas cards, yes I can here the moans and groans but this is a new stamp (to me) that I have pondered over for a while and put it on my Christmas list so I thought that it was better to make a few cards with it instead of showing my new ink pad, stamping blocks and Sam Taylor's voucher.

So you may have gathered that the first challenge of 2016 is What's new or NBUS, chosen by Mervi.

We have a super prize from Sizzex

and our other Sponsor is 

Here are my cards

Woodware stamp Christmas Bells

The first two cards are coloured then covered with glossy accents
The third card is using white glitter - tried black but didn't work.
Last card is using turquoise glitter.
Pop over to the challenge blog to see my other team mates new items.

I am also entering these into the Snippets Playground as all the white card with the sentiment on are snippets.

Thanks for popping by.

Happy New Year Kath ! Hope it's a happy and healthy year for you and your family!
What a lovely Woodware stamp this is… it looks so different in each card… really stunning and you don't need anything else with it… is perfect with the sentiment! :-)
Chrissie and I really enjoyed the last episode… but it's definitely the end of an era… I consoled myself somewhat with Mr Selfridge… but then found out that this new series is the last!!! seems like everything is ending.
Can't wait until I can get back crafting again! most of all… can't wait for my bed to arrive! Lol
Hope you have a fab weekend!
Love Sue B xx

As soon as I started to read this post I knew the stamps were going to be Woodware!...and very lovely they are too! Fab quartet of the white glitter one, so understated and very classy! At this rate you'll be starting on 2017 cards by the end of the month :D

Great cards there Kath. Liking the stamp.
I shall be making some C cards as there are alot of C stamps on my desk that I didn't get to make due to circumstances. Seems a shame to put them away without inking them up!!

Happy new year Kath. Gorgous cards and just when I'd managed to put this fabulous Woodware stamp to the back of mind... oh, well I guess I'm just gonna have to buy it xx

MaryH said...

Hi Kath! I'm not groaning, I enjoy Christmas cards & yay for you at getting a head start with this fab stamp. Had to chuckle at your logic regarding showing the stamp or the pictures of vouchers or stamp pads! The cards are much lovelier! I'm liking both the colorways, and good for you at inking up this stamp immediately. Beats putting it away and forgetting you have it! Hope your 2016 is off to a great start. I've finally caught up some comments, got a few other 'coming home chores' to finish up, and hopefully can post a card soon. Big hugs & TFS.


A brilliant CAS Christmas design Kath - the stamp looks fabulous in all the colours - I love the matching sentiment!
Hugs, Sylvia xx
(sorry I've not been round for a while - trying to catch up today)!
