Winter Silhouettes

I've got a really fun project to share today using the Winter Silhouettes stamp set from Hero Arts which is a really fun make for Christmas.

All I used to create these ornaments was the stamp set, green, white, black and red embossing powders and a blue distress ink really watered down to give a blue wash sky.  The ornaments were actually upcycled from a couple of waste bins I bought as I didn't really want a heart flopping around on them but thought they'd make great ornaments instead!  You can easily find lots of wooden blanks easily in stores like hobbycraft or online quite inexpensively.

I just used the curved stamp to create my hill line then pressed my embossing ink pad all over the bottom up to the line I'd stamped before covering with white powder and heating.   It's then just a case of stamping and embossing from the background to the foreground in layers finishing with the sentiment in the snow.

There are lots of great little silhouettes in this stamp set so you can get very creative with them.  If you pick up this month's Craft Stamper magazine (on sale Friday 3rd November but subscribers may already have their copy) then you will see that our fabulous Design Team have been challenged to use the set in 6 very different ways!  Do let us know what you think of the article - we think there are some fab ideas for this set in the feature and hope you do too.


We got our delivery from Sugar Pea Designs on Friday so will get that opened and in store this week.

We have an Altenew delivery in transit and providing it doesn't get stuck in customs again we should have it by the end of the week.

Otherwise it will be a quiet week for deliveries as we wait for the November releases to open for orders.

Catch you all next weekend - Happy Halloween!
