working with stencils plus additional Cs globes

There are some new ideas here as well as some old ones but all are useful to any one who wants to get the best out of their stencils. We can use assorted methods to suit at each workshop.
Sorry board so full but it gives some idea of what we can do

Although this stencil from dreamweaver has been out for some time, stampendous have repackaged it and put it in their Christmas catalogue so I thought I'd try this also

Then there are a couple of  different ways of using the globes from the Festive Fun creative stamping magazine stamps.

 and being me I just had to try out a few other ideas...

Using assorted dies and stamps

There is a mixture of workshop cards here/ The top ones are snowy scenes which include stampendous stamps and dreamweaver stencils and the lower ones are using other dies.
I love the effect on the middle row where pixie powders were used in the background, dies added then snow effects with stampendous powders etc. see bottom picture for a bit more detail
The same stamp has been used here with different ways of doing the snow and different frames

Woodware Christmas Stamping

Some of the cards here are the ones we did at the woodware retailer training but then I have looked at using the stamps in other ways. The snowflake flower has been a popular purchase. I have used it with different embossing powders for different effects.

I have also used the metallic gilding polishes and pixie powders from creative expressions with the festive words.
