Well I think that this is pretty non-traditional, it is a theme that I was not sure about so this card is definitely not a robin or a fireplace.

2

First I lined up my Woodware Lolly Sticks on my very scruffy cutting mat.

3

I cut some Double sided sticky sheet to hold them together, and then stick them on the card when I was ready.

4

I hope that you can see may very elaborate Christmas tree

5

I have added the Mask-it Sheet

6

Then i have coloured my tree with Jungle Crafters ink

7

I have used a stencil brush and I love that you can see the wood texture.

8

I have glues on some Mini Light Bulbs, I have used Glossy Accents to attach them.

9

Then I have added the baubles, well some Stickles and some Silver Pearl Pen from Dutch Doobadoo.

11

I have made my wobbly line with a Sakura Micron Pen.

13

I have Frantaged my star button for the top of the tree.

10

The tree truck is just a chopped off lolly pop stick, coloured with Bark Crafters.

Woodware – Sketch 57 – Take 2

I am back again with another take on this weeks sketch over on Woodware Witterings

11

This is the Francoise Collection Clear Magic stamp Flowering Bike

12

I have simply stamped with Bark Crafters ink from ClearSnap I have stamped on A4 Cream Linen card

13

I stamped it again on some pre-cut plain cream card and some pink.

14

Then I put the layers together.

15

I used my Tombow Glue stick so that I can move the pieces around to get them perfectly lined up, well I hope that they are perfectly lined up!

16

I then coloured in with a mixture of Sakura Water colour pencils and my Stardust gel pens.

17

the colours are just slightly darker on the pink card, but you can still see them.

18

I used Sakura Micron pen to add the faux stitching.

11

not a bad take on the sketch even if I say so myself…

I stamped with the Bark Crafters pad on the ribbon and remembered to attach it around the pink panel before attaching it to the card!

Woodware – Christmas Greetings for the Men in our Lives – Take 2

I am back again with another Christmas card that would be suitable for a man,

18

I have used Graffiti Christmas a Clear Magic stamp from the Francoise Collection.

10

I have stamped on the Woodware Hairy Manila card.

11

I coloured with Sakura Brush pens I have used the Burgundy and the Sap Green.

12

I used my Sakura Gelly Roll in Clear Star to add a touch of sparkle

16

I used the same colours of pens to make a wishy washy background on my card. I sprayed water on the card and scribbled my pens on my hot stuff mat and then picked the colour up with a wet paint brush.

13

I have used my trusty Woodware scruffer around the edges.

17

The paper comes from the 8 x 8 Tartan Pad.

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 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 Trio of Tags

This week on the Woodware Blog we are looking at tags, i have cheated and made three giant tags that are the same, I will have to buy very large presents to go with them now!

DD3

The tags I have made from our plain Bunting it is plain white card.

DD2

First I stamped the Snowfakes from the Stampendous delicate Snowflake in blue then embossed Jane’s Funny Snowman in silver.

DD5

I made a small tag for the top by drawing around the top of the tag and cutting around.

DD1

Then I added a touch of colour with the Sakura Glaze pens.

DD4

The tag at the top has been stamped with Jane’s lame joke..

I have added ribbons and a brad so that the top will swivel so that you can write a message underneath.
