Woodware Bauble Wreath Stamps ..... with loads 'a Bling !

Hello Fans! (can anyone remember who had this 'catchphrase '? )
I've been having fun with all my 'gem  stones'. Gawd, I wish they were real!

The cards posted today are very quick to make.

Yeah, okay, the small gems were a  little fiddly and I did cheat a bit by using a coloured pen here and there.

But after stamping, heat embossing and sticking on the gem stones ( BTW, I used Glossy Accents to fix them on with, 'cos there's nothing worse than having yer gems fall off! ) they took very little time to complete.

I have decorated the inside of each card to match the fronts.

I have another card like these in Black,White and Silver on another post under Woodware stamps in my labels section .

I purchased the stamps from Which crafts.  However, I cannot see them listed on their site now but you can ring them if you are interested. Great customer service as well.

  1. Hello Eileen,

    I do believe it was seeing your black and white version of these cards that gave me the jaw dropping moment and made me hurriedly start to follow you!
    This stamp and what youve done with it is just sheer beauty!

    Its your gems though, I mean I look at my little collection and its like comparing paste with diamonds compared to yours!! Where on earth do you get such little beauties from?!

    Beautiful post!

  2. Wow these are brilliant and Christmas time is a good excuse for plenty of glitter and bling. I have quite a lot of gems and often just get a few stray ones left on a sheet so this would be a brilliant way to use them up so thanks for the inspiration

  15. Hi Sheila.... I am posting this reply to you here as there isn't an email address in your comment... Thank you for the kind words x

    I bought the gems from loads of different places, craft shops and on line.... Most of the unusual gems you can see were purchased from Create and Craft TV. Years and Years ago .... a huge bargain tub that they had on special offer! There are loads of jewelery sites online Sheila, I hope you find some you like. I'll keep my eyes open for you as well X


Thank you for leaving a comment ... Much appreciated.
