Woodware Sketch 52

Over on the Woodware Blog this week we have a sketch

8

here is the  sketch

52-April_2016

a very simple sketch for us, as usual, but I do like a sketch to get me thinking.

3

I have used Francoise’s Awesome 18 Clear Magic stamp. I have embossed it with Grape embossing powder from Stampendous.

4

I also stamped the  18 on some textura card from the great 6 x 6 pads I love the texture under the stamping, this time I used the really pretty Ice Blue, which is a pearly metallic Frantage powder. Then punched it with the Huge Oval punch.

5

The greeting comes from the same stamp I have mounted it on some white card that I have punched with the fantastic (my favourite product at the moment, you may have noticed) Tag Top Punch I used the Woodware Mini Stapler to attach the ribbon, which I have zapped with my heat tool.

6

I have layered the pieces on to paper from the 6 x 6 pad Lavender Mist and again stapled.

1

I could only find orange star buttons

2

but they look great Frantaged

7

all of my papers have been given a scuff up with the Woodware Edger.

I am rather pleased with the finished results, I hope that you like it too, don’t forget to pop over too see what the rest of the girls have been up too on the Woodware Blog, thanks for visiting see you soon!

Woodware and Crafty Cardmakers – 1, 2, 3.

Woodware are once again sponsoring and playing along with Crafty Cardmakers

CraftyCardMakers2016Header

The theme for the week is – 1 2 3

that is one stamped image, 2 papers and 3 different embellishments

here is my 1, 2, 3, card

1

Because I usually do much more minimal cards, I found this a really tricky challenge

For my 1 image I have used Relax a Clear Magic stamp designed by Francoise.

2

I stamped it three times (hope that is okay for one image), I have used Lettuce, Moss and Ruby Red embossing powders. The card is textured Textura Card Stock available in black and white. I liked the way that it has not stamped perfectly.

3

I chopped them up and added colour with a Dreamweaver stencil brush.

6

My 2 papers are both from the Perfect Prints 6 x 6 pad Rouge

5

So then we have 3 different embellishments. First I have Frantaged a Jumbo Frame Brad I have attached it to a scalloped oval punched shape. Embellishment number 2 is the dotty ribbon

4

My 3rd embellishment is a Chippie Hearts and Flourishes I have Frantaged this too, but this time in an electric frying pan! I got my electric frying pan after a trip to Samuel Taylors in Leeds with Fran from Stampendous, it is the first time that I have played with it, but I have a video from Fran that will introduce you to the possibilities…

Well next time I will be more adventurous with my hot pan!

Thanks for visiting and don’t forget to check the rest of the Woodware teams 1, 2, 3. and join in the challenge on Crafty Cardmakers, you still have a week to play along.

Vintage and Lace

This week the Woodware theme is Vintage and lace, I am up first and I really struggled with this one, deciding what to do,

7

but of course it had to be the wonderful Aspects of Design Lace Hearts and the Lace Borders.

2

I have simply stamped and embossed with detail black  powder.

5

I have scuffed the edges of all of the layers with the Woodware Edge Crimper,

3

and coloured them with the Crafter’s Spiced Plum pad.

The printed paper is from the Time Flies pad.

1

The flower is one of the Crochet Lace Flowers and the cream self adhesive border. The centre is a Card Candi flower.

4

I have used the Scalloped Top Tag Punch and the stamp is the Just Words May All Your Dreams..

For this card we have Mudpie and Amanda Smelling the Roses the background is the Dreamweaver Large Damask stencil.

7

bet you haven’t seen paste like this before! Well it is sludge paste, yes sludge paste a special jar that you keep of leftover paste, this jar is a mix of  translucent paste that has been coloured with Metallic F/X and made a perfect soft background to go with the stamped image.

6

Just paste as you normally do, dip the pallet knife right down to the bottom of the jar. Can you spot the careless pasting?

5

hidden by turning the pasted pieces in the opposite directions

The greeting and the mice have been layered on the Stampendous Fitted Frames. The stamped image has been coloured with Sakura Colouring pencils.

Woodware – Masking Technique

This week on the Woodware Blog we are looking at masking, and the girls have all had really interesting takes on it.

2

I have used Jane’s Bubble Heart Peel Offs as my mask.

10

I started at the top of the panel and stuck on the heart

9

I have scribbled the colour from Sakura Koi Brush Pens I used 2 shades of pink I have spritz water to blend the patches of colour.

6

then move the mask down and repeat

8

the three hearts sit nicely on the panel.

4

To make the panel to mount the main image I have used Crafter’s ink in Spiced Plum and again spritzed with water and blended it with the Blend-it tool. the panel has been die cut from the Stampendous Fitted Frames.

11

I the heart is on white linen card which I have coloured and cut around, then layered it on the die cut panel and then black card.

Thanks for visiting, and please check out what the rest of the girls have been up to.

Woodware Wearable Art

This week on the Woodware blog we are looking at Wearable art, lucky for me we have just re-introduced a product that I really like Style Stones

1

they are perfect for lots of mixed media projects, and are great for wearing.

3

They are made from cultured stone, they are either natural, white or coated which makes them cream. They can be coloured with inks, paint, alcohol inks, or heat embossed… the possibilities are endless. Her I have used gold Color Solutions Alcohol inks.

5

I have stamped on the plain side the stamp is Francoise’s Clear Magic Old Letter using Crafter’s ink.

7

I have used Aged Copper Frantage Embossing Powder on the words and around the edges.

6

the necklace can be worn on either side.

10

this one has been inked with Crafter’s Barn and then Frantaged.

9

with a plain back.

2

The Frantage, is just a mix that I have.

8

this one has an interesting back.
