So here is my second visit to the sea this week…

j

I have used the Dreamweaver Sandcastle Stencil and sludge paste.

q

here is my jar of sludge paste, just a mix of all of the odd bits of paste that I had added to a jar.

b

It is a great stencil to paste. I pasted quite a few.

o

To this one I added Stampendous Ice Blue Metallic embossing powder to the wet paste

n

and heated it after the paste was dry.

p

one of them I covered completely with powder.

I had fun playing with these and I have a friend who is planning to buy a house near the sea so I will make the extras into cards for her.

d

I have used the Woodware Post Card Stamp for the background, and again used the Ice Blue powder

m

the background layer I have used my Simple Dots Rollagraph first, then on top I stamped the Stampendous Carte Poste Cling Rubber stamp. I have used the Clearsnap Raisin Pigment ink.

c

I have used the Woodware Scruffer to edge the layers and then inked with the Raisin.

k

I finished the card off with some Light Blue Mosaics they are a perfect match for the embossing powder.

I hope that you have enjoyed Woodware’s By or Under the Sea week and why not play along at Crafty Cardmakers.

Don’t forget to check out the Crafty Cardmakers blog and play along with us all, we have prize!

So I hope that they don’t mind on Crafty Cardmakers but I have a scrap book page to share.

8

I live near the North Sea and walk there regularly with Peggy my mad Collie Dog, this summer we did some beach bagging with family, still the dog has more photographs taken of her than any people that I go out with!

1

I have used Stone Crafter’s from ColorBox for all of my inking, Crater’s is the ink that I go to first, and I decided on the grey as it allows the colours in the photographs to shine, I have used the Stampendosu Cling Rubber Stamp By The Sea and the stencil is the Dutch Doobadoo Fabric Mask Art I think that it looks like a net. I have edges the page with the stone ink too.

9

I have used my Tag Top Punch and a regular corner rounder ( just find this punch so useful, sorry I can’t stop using it). I have really terrible writing so I usually hide my journaling, sometimes I will print it on the computer. The photograph here are all of Rosehearty, this will be a double layout, eventually.

3

So the journaling fits in here.

10

I have mixed double sided tape and foam dots so that the tag is held in place but easy to get out.

11

I love this stamp for a scrap book page Life’s not Measured. The dotty ribbon with the silver dots is perfect for my grey theme.

4

I have used the Regular Corner Rounder on all of the photographs.

I hope that you have enjoy WWoodware’s By or Under the Sea  week and why not play along at Crafty Cardmakers and play along.

Woodware – You can never have too many Gems! – take 2

I love this card, this gem Christmas tree is rather fun I think I will make more of them

14

I have used the Mark Richard Mosaics

8

The Mosaics are pearly little square. First I made my tree pattern so I knew how big it would be.

15

Because I had laid out my tree I was able to start by ripping the card and then building my pot with Mosaics.

11

I used Elements as my decorations for my tree.

12

I have edged the card with Jungle Crafters ink.

13

I think that the Merry and Bright words from Jane’s Clear Magic Snowflake Flower are perfect for my tree.

9

I have folded and A4 card in half and randomly stamped Jane’s Music Notes I have used ColorBox Raisin Pigment ink.

10

I added some Burlap Ribbon.

14

To finish off the card.

Woodware – You can never have too many Gems!

This week on Woodware Wittering’s we are looking at looking at the wonderful selection of of self adhesive gems that we have.

 Who needs anything else?

3

I have drawn around the Dreamweaver Large Open Butterfly with a silver Sakura Gelly Roll pen.

I then spent some time wathching telly and adding my gems. I have used Crystals, Metals, Elements, and Pearls.

5

I cut my white Textura  card 6.5 inches by 12 inches and folded it into a square. Then added some dotty ribbon down the side.

7

I have used the inverted corner and the regular corner rounder punches.

The black card is 12 x 12 Textura and the blue is from the 6 x 6 Glamour Textura pad.

6

The words are a Just Words Clear Magic stamp I hope I have stamped and embossed in silver this on black Textura which I have cut with the Tag Top Punch.

4

Then put the front panel on.

2

and added more pearls and some ribbon to the tag.

Woodware – Black and White take 2

I am back again with a second black and white card. I think that this stamp of Jane’s is perfect for black and white, or red and white or any other colour you fancy!

10

Meet Little Christmas Bird a Clear Magic stamp designed by Jane Gill.

6

I have stamped and embossed with the Stampendous Winter Wonderland powder, it is a lovely white powder with silver glitter in it. I have stamped on the black Textura card which you can see on this solid stamp, then punched him out.

4

For the background I have used the new Holly Scrolls metal stencil designed by Fran of Stampendous, I have pressure embossed with my Sizzix machine on black and white Textura card.

8

I have added Winer Wonderland embossing powder to the black, and punched the corners with the inverted corner punch. The ribbon is the black gingham

5

for the greeting which come with the Little Bird set I have embossed the white circle.

7

I like the way that I have layered it with the ribbon, the same as the background.

9

The gingham bow adds a finishing touch.

Woodware – Black and White

This week on Woodware Witterings we are looking at Black and White cards, I love black and white, this is a very quick card today, even by my standards!

1

I have used Sausage Dog the Clear Magic stamp from the Francoise Collection. He is simply white on black and cut around.

2

The card is white DL size, I have cut some black card and used the inverted corner punch and then tied some of the black Fancy Twine around the card.

3

I have added the Mark Richard Elements in black to the corners.

4

the greeting is from the same stamp set.

A very simple card that I think would be good for any dog lover.

Sausage Dog can be coloured up to make a Christmas card too

Woodware – Sketch 53 – take 2

I am back again with another take on this weeks sketch

16

(hope that you like my new garden furniture)

here is a reminder of the sketch

53

I rather like this one.

6

The main image is a Clear Magic stamp designed by Jane Gill Snowflake Flower. I have stamped with a Watermark Pad and embossed with silver powder. I made the card by folding an A4 sheet in half and the cutting it into a square, o it is slightly smaller than 6 x 6. I Often make my square card this way and I had the spare for my extra bits of stamping.

7

Then I stamped around the card with dye ink I have used the Sky ink from the ColorBox range for Stephanie Barnard.

13

then I inked around the edge with the same ink pad and a stencil brush. I have hight lighted the centre of some of the snowflakes with the White Pearl from the Dutch Doobadoo Pearl Pen range, these pens are so easy to use the impress me everytime!

8

The Happy Christmas and the other stamps come from the Francoise Collection Santa Post Elements.

11

sorry this is a bit blurred. The paper is from one of the Perfect Prints 6 x 6 pads. For the darker stamping I have used my Crafters ink in Wave.

9

If you have good eye sight you will be able to read Francoise’s words about Christmas, I think that she has thought of everything!

14

I have if course used my Tag Top punch this is the scalloped shoulders. The 15mm organza ribbon is the white with silver dots.

15

then add the circle greeting.

I hope that you like my sketch cards this week, have you checked out the Woodware Witterings Blog this week to see what the rest of the team have been up to?
