Woodware – How Do You Resist?

On the Woodware Blog this week we are looking at resist techniques.

8

I found this on Clear Scraps You Tube and it is so simple.

 

Thanks Susan!

2

I coloured a 6 x 6 piece of Clear Scraps 12 x 12 acrylic sheets, covered it with Color Solutions Alcohol Inks then used the the ColorBox Wicked Black ink pad to stamp Francoise’s Turned Twenty One stamp, then wiped it off with an old tea towel.

1

I stamped May All Your Dreams Just For Words and embossed it in black. I have used the Paper Scruffer to rough up the edges.

3

on the inside of the card I have stamped and embossed the 21 in black so that it was a strong image showing through. To make sure that I get the image in the right place I stamped it on a larger card and the placed the acrylic on top and drew around it then cut the card.

4

This is how I attached it.

7

I positioned it slightly off set.

11

The paper comes from the Perfect Prints 6 x 6 pad Rouge, it has lots of variety in it. The words are part of the 21 stamp.

Candi Flowers – inspired by Crafty Debs

A couple of week ago Crafty Debs made some Card Candi Flowers that I was fascinated by, Kim also had me intrigued that week and I posted my flowers last week so here are my Card Candi Flowers

4

They wer fun to make and a definitely one for in front of the TV.

1

punch a Green size circle, it has to be trimmed when you are finished, but if you use the smaller circle you don’t have anything to hold on to (yes I tried). I have folded up a pile of Card Candi

6

blob some silicon glue on your circle

8

then arrange the Candi

9

place a Candi in the centre

2

Then add glitter to disguise the extra silicon.

I have used the flowers on a Clear Scraps tag. The back has been decorated with Color Solutions Alcohol Inks.

The Candi and Paper are Time Flies The Happy Travels stamp is a Just Words Clear Magic.

Woodware Just One Layer

This week on the Woodware blog the theme is one Layer, I always take that to mean that you stamp directly on the card., so that is what I have done, not without mishap!

4

I have used two of Francoise’s new Clear Magic stamps the Graffiti Thank You and the Patch Tulip.

7

first I stamped the thank you

6

then I made a very lazy mask

2

can you see my mistake

1

I didn’t cut the mask properly so I started again

3

and that is why the finished card is brown and not black! I coloured the image with Koi Brush Pens and the Blender Pen, which worked really well on the Woodware Mixed Media Card I then used the Clear Stardust Pen to sparkle up some of the small areas, mess free sparkle!

Very simple and I expect that you can spot the lazy Mask Making!

Thanks for visiting and don’t forget to check the Woodware Blog in it’s new home for the rest of the team’s cards.

Woodware – Sketch 50

This week on the Woodware blog we have a sketch

50-Jan2016

I thought that this was perfect for a scrapbook page

19

I have done an 8 x 8 page.

9

My only stamping is a border using Jane’s Dotty Flowers I have stamped them with ColorBox Raisin Pigment Ink, I love this colour.

11

I topped it with a cut down sheet of the Tartan 8 x 8 pad.

12

I cut my sunset into a circle.

15

and the picture of my daughter and Peggy the dog was punched with the Super Duper Circle Punch.

16

some layered journaling written with the Sakura Micron pen in Sepia.

8

for my flowers I used the tutorial that Kim shared last week and the tartan paper comes from the Tartan Pad and the Contemporary Tartan Pad. I used a brad to join the layers together then spray them with water.

14

I am really pleased with them. I have some step by step photographs of my first attempt here.

17

I used silicone glue to attach the flowers to my journaling.

1

I have framed it in an Ikea frame that is 9 x 9 so I inked the edges of the mount with a mix of the Mossy Mixed Media Pigment Ink and the Raisin Pigment Ink.

Thanks for visiting, why not pop over to the Woodware blog to see what the rest of the girls have been up too?

Scruffy, Scrappy Flowers

I was so impressed with the flowers that Kim and Debbie made last week that I have been having a go, so this is the results of my attempts at Kim’s.

3

this was my first attempt. Then ink the edges, most things look better with inked edges.

2

I use an old foam stamp free from a magazine years ago when I want to make a hole in something thick like this complete with a map pin.

4

stores in a drawer just like this.

5

then add a  flower brad.

6

spray with water and scrunch.

7

Repeat with other papers.

13

not sure where these are going yet, but I think that I will have fun with all of my scrap papers for a while….

Creating Embellishments

On the Woodware Blog this week we are looking at embellishments

6

I have gone with a very simple technique I have made some flowers with Shrink Plastic.

1

I have used white shrink plastic and I have stamped Francoise’s Clear Magic Patch Daisy. First I sanded the shrink plastic and then I stamped using Black Surfacez Ink

2

Then I used Sakura coloured Pencils to colour in the flower.

3

Then I cut it out and even used a craft knife to get the little gap at the stem!

3a

I have done three flowers.

4

Then you get your heat tool and shrink! Most people who don’t like shrink plastic get to this stage and panic, but just keep heating and it will curl as it gets to it’s smallest size.

5

This is a before and after, you can see that as it shrinks the colour deepens.

9

I have added magnets to the back

10

and used just one foam mini mounting pad on each magnet.

7

the two word stamps are from one of the tiddler sets

8

The stamps Belated Birthday Wishes can be used together or with other stamps.

Funky Shaped Cards – Take 2

Poor Pam the Pampered Stamper is poorly so you have a second post from me this week, and I have stretched the theme a tiny little bit.

31

The card is a normal shape but it is in a funky bag, with a gift!

I have to thank Stampy Gwen from The Stamp Pad for the idea

33

Gwen give me this about a year ago and I had been looking for a reason to make one! (and I didn’t even have to pull it to pieces to work it out, which I am very pleased about, it did take a couple of goes to work it out)

14

first I started with an 8 x 8 inch square, and folded it in half along the diagonal

15

then I added 2 more score lines either side of the centre line

17

then I marked a 10cm centre portion, my Very Useful Ruler is perfect for this

18

I have drawn in the lines so that you can see them but just score them.

19

and fold in both sides.

20

then fold up.

26

My real one shows up the contrast from using double sided paper this is Roundabout

25

here you can see where I have taped it.

27

I decorated with some Peach Grosgrain ribbon.

23

When making the card I cut my Mixed Media to fit the space. Placed the stamps on.

22

Then added the block

24

and stamped! The stamps are Just Words Birthday Kisses and Ranunculus from Jane Gill.

30

When finished you have a double sided pouch

29

I made a card for each side and added some earrings

16

The flower is white and I have coloured it with the ink and added a brad and Steampunk Butterfly.

28

This finishes off one side

32

and I have completed it with a bow.

So thanks to Pam I got around to making this and thanks to Stampy Gwen for the idea!

See you soon
