Copper Beech Flowers with Lynnda's Leaves Stamp set.

How to create a flower (or two) using the Beech Leaves from the LYNNDA's LEAVES set of stamps premiered on Hochanda TV recently.

If you want to know more then head over to the OAK HOUSE STUDIO blog for all the details.
I love the deep red of the leaves against the bright green foliage and it goes to show Lynnda's Leaves don't have to be just for autumn or leaves for that matter!!

Oh Christmas Tree!

Well here is December's page for The Craft Barn's Calendar Challenge where the theme is GOLD/SILVER and CHRISTMAS TREES.

I've used the Christmas Tree stamp from Oak House Studio and embossed it in gold on some watercolour paper inked with a mix of Emerald Brushos and Citrus Lime Ink in a Bottle.  For the background I've blended some Triple Fruity Red ink over Tim Holtz's Holiday Knit layering stencil to give that Scandinavian feel.   It's just finished with the December Calendar, some gems for baubles and a Gold Stickles border.

I really need to get on with constructing my calendar but in the meantime here is a photo of all 12 pages together - all completely different but part of a set!

I'm happy that they are all done so I can make the calendar but sad this challenge has come to an end.  If you've visited over the year and maybe left a comment - MANY THANKS!  I'm looking forward to what challenges the New Year brings!

PS:  Just having a new boiler fitted so thought I'd use my time wisely and finish my calendar.  I've left it unstuck at the bottom so that I can pack it flat as a gift. It's a bit front heavy but it will be fine come April when there's 3 months at the front and back!!

Winter Trees

Three posts in three days must be a record but here's another sample for the HOCHANDA TV show on December 4th - 3pm and 6pm.

It's a simple landscape card using the Waterfall Pure Colour ink for the sky and the Oak Trees (large and small) from the WINTER TREES set.  Having made this one I decided to create another as a Christmas card adding Happy Christmas which is another Oak House Studio stamp and some Star Dust Stickles to give that frosty feel.

Don't forget Lynnda is giving away £100 of crafting goodies so to enter visit the OAK HOUSE STUDIO BLOG and comment on all the posts this week for a chance to win.  And don't forget to watch HOCHANDA TV on Friday!!
