Friendship

This week the Woodware theme is friendship and I am very excited to be sharing one of the brand new stamps designed by Jane Gill.

6

This stamp is called Curly Sue JGS411 and is one of the latest of Jane’s Bubble Bloom collection.

5

for the background I have used the Dreamweaver Daisy Background stencil. I have coloured it with the Balloons 6 colour pigment pad from ColorBox, and a stencil brush.

1

The image has been stamped with the Bark Crafters Ink then the leaves coloured with Tombow Dual Brush pens.

3

I then coloured some Card Candi with three orange pens and then topped them with Crackle Accents, this was taken before the glass had dried.

2

I really like how they look once they were dry.

4

They fit so well into the bubbles of Jane’s stamps.

I hope that you like the look of this new stamp from Jane, they are on sale this week so look out for them!

Thank you for visiting see you soon!

Woodware – House-Mouse® Week

This week on the Woodware Blog we are looking at the cute and cuddly House-Mouse®

Front

This little fella is Fall Float. I have coloured the leaves green, since it is supposed to be summer at the moment.

2

on the front I have stamped just the leaf part of the stamp.

4

I did the colouring with Tombow Dual Brush Pens.

1

I stamped more on another sheet of the Woodware Mixed Media card.

3

For the inside I have used the Stampendous Build a Pop Up Die. The border comes from the same die set.

5

The cut out leaves have been added to the tabs at the top.

6

I really love the pop up die it is my favourite thing at the moment! Stampendous have an ever growing range of stamps that have been designed to work perfectly with it, but it works so well with lots of other stamps too.

Thanks for visiting, and don’t forget to check out the Woodware Blog for lots more House-Mouse® fun.

Woodware Sketch 43

This week on the Woodware blog we have a sketch to follow.

43-June_2015

I have turned the sketch on it’s side

1

I have used the very cute House-Mouse stamp Trimming the Tree for the main image.

6

First I stamped it on a folded piece of A4 card, the drew around it with a diner plate.

4

and cut out the oval

5

Then I stamped the image in roughly the same place on a piece of the new Woodware Mixed Media card, the card is great for water colouring

7

I coloured it with Tombow pens and a water brush.

2

I used the Crafty Edger and the Star Party cassette.

3

On the outside I used the Merry Christmas from Francoise’s Funky Christmas Clear Magic set. The holly leaves are from the Cling Rubber Jumbo set Holly Stocking. I have inked it with the same green Tombow pen that I coloured the tree.

Thanks for visiting see you soon!

Mirror Crack’d – Challenge Shadow Box

This month we are again sponsoring the challenge over on the Mirror Crack’d blog.

FB-Logo

The theme this time is Shadow Boxes. I had a look at the inspiration from their design team and was inspired to use my sardine tins by the work of Luli. her blog is really inspiring.

8

I have been saving lots of tins with no idea what I was going to use them for.

3

So I have painted a few, I have painted them with some paint from B&Q that I had in the house, then painted them with Dylusions Paint.

4

I have a bag of flakes, that are just bits from gold, silver and copper sheets I have used USArtQuest Duo glue on a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and put the tin in the bag, I hope that you can see it. I find this the easiest way to contain my flakes, and when I use a sheet I just add the bits to the bag.

6

Then rub of the loose bits while the tin is still in the bag.

5

I have used the flowers from the Woodware Chippies Paisleys and embossed them with Stampendous powders.

7

I glued the flowers into the tin with glossy accents, raising them to different heights with some extra bits of Chippies.

I hope that you join in with this challenge which is open all month, perhaps I will get around to using the rest of my tins!

Pop over to The Mirror Crack’d and join in the fun

Woodware Challenge – Chosen by Kim – Window Cards

This week the Woodware challenge has been chosen by Kim.

Kim has chosen for us the theme of Window Cards the idea for it came from Technique Time Tuesday you will find a great tutorial if you follow the link.

this was fun to do, and I sort of got carried away, but they were very quick cards to make.

15

I have used Francoise’s Clear Magic Tiddler Sometimes for the greeting.

9

First I used Dylusions paint in London Blue I applied it with the Baby Wipe method here is a video with Dyan demonstrating it

10

I used the Dutch Doobadoo Art Bubbles and more of the blue paint.

12

Then I added some Post Box Red paint.

13

I cut the front of the card with the Dreamweaver Nesting Ovals Die and stamped it.

14

I cut another oval and stampeded it too then added some of the blue paint with the same stencil

15

I closed the card and attached the oval through the hole so that the placement was correct.

16

the oval that I cut from the card was perfect on a plain card.

The border stamps on both cards come from the Dylusions stamp set Bordering on the Edge.

6

I liked the method so much that I made another card.

1

this stencil is the Dutch Doobadoo Mask art Metal 2

2

I was a bit messy with the paint.

3

but it was great when I rubbed more over with a Woodware Wipe.

5

I die cut the Dreamweaver Nesting Frames and stamped it with some words from the Didn’t Hold Back cling rubber Dylusions set.

8

I love this stamp from the Escape set I have added Glossy Accents to the glasses.

I hope that you like my window cards, and that you have time to take a look at what the rest of the girls have been up too.

Woodware Challenge – Travel

This week on the Woodware blog we are looking at travel, I am a really bad scrap booker, well infrequent would be a better description, so I love it when I am pushed to do it.

In the summer of 2013 I was lucky enough to take a trip to Las Vegas, my third trip to this interesting city, this was work I went to do the Dreamweaver Certification course and attend a CHA trade show. The bonus was I was with 2 of my favourite people! (the whole thing was great, I love to learn crafty stuff and love to see what is new, so it can not really be discribed as work)

1

This photo collage sums up the outside of Las Vegas to me, and the photograph of us, was really funny as it was taken by the shop assistant in one of my must visit shops in the US. (It sells handbags and jewellery don’t tell Francoise that we went with out her)

My scrapbook page is going in an Ikea frame.

2

I have collaged two photographs, I played about with other photographs, but this two said what I wanted the photograph to say.

3

You can see the whit gap that I had when I added the mount, so how to get this to work?

4

Since it was a Dreamweaver trip I had to use a stencil I have used Corner Flowers and embossed it with Matte Black Paste.

5

While the paste was still wet I sprinkled on Metallic f/x I have used Nouveau Orange, Navajo Sky and Purple Satin. I wanted bright colours and black to symbolise Las Vagas, and us!

6

I heated the embossing paste with a heat tool to get it to bubble and wrinkle.

7

I used the Dylusions Paint in Post Box Red, and the ColorBox Blending Tool the paint blends so beautifully that it is very easy to get a good effect.

8

My flowers don’t quite cover the white space, but enough to take your eye away from it.

9

I used the Dreamweaver Dual Alphabet die set for the title. I used Metallic f/x on the red and black card through the flower stencil before die cutting.

11

The words I think are very apt for the 3 of us! They come from one of they Dylusions Stamp sets. The words are grouped so that you can stamp them and use them as one, but also they have plenty of space so that you can cut them apart.

10

The card that they are mounted on has been edged with Metallic f/x.

The finished project will be hanging on my bedroom wall once it has been painted!

Woodware – Boys and Their Toys

This week on the Woodware blog we are looking at cards for men, it is almost time for fathers day and male cards seem to be a hard topic for many card makers.

1

I have used Francoise’s Clear Magic Single Huge Fishing.

2

First I stamped the Fishing.

3

I have Zentangled in some of the letters.

5

and then paper pieced in the S and the G.

4

The bubble stamp is from the Dylusions Graphic Background set.

6

The greeting comes from a Francoise Clear Magic set called Male Relatives.
