Woodware Sketch 14 – July 2012

We have a sketch challenge for the month of July over on the Woodware blog.

I have done a very simple card even for me this week,  as I am having family things going on.

I have used stamps from Woodware, Stampendous and Magenta.

The main image is from Jane’s Clear Magic set Jewel Garden  I have water coloured the stamped image with a mixture of the Mica Palettes and the background I coloured with the Clear Star Sakura pen.

I have punched the layers with the  two Punches Super Duper Elipse and the Scalloped Huge Elipse, the sizes are designed to layer really well together and I like the way that you can mix the scallop and plain punches.

I have stamped the Stampendous Cling Rubber Dreamy Leaves and embossed it with two of the powders from the Rich and Rugged set from Stampendous. I love using these sets as they have lovely colours of powders in them and you don’t always want the full size jars of the more unusual colours.

The background is a Magenta Fern stamp.

Thank you for visiting, you can see what the rest of the girls have been up too over on the Woodware Blog

Woodeare Challenge Week 47 – Turquoise and Brown

The Woodware Challenge this week is a colour one and Turquoise and Brown and I am first.

I have used a Magenta cling rubber stamp Sketchy Flower I have stamped it twice on brown card with a ClearSnap Watermark pad and embossed it with Stampendous Aqua Powder and once on turquoise card this time I embossed it with Stampendous Chocolate embossing powder. The background I stamped with Stampendous Dreamy Leaves and again embossed it with the Chocolate powder.

I coloured the flowers with Sakura Clear Stardust pen and the leaves with Clear Glaze.

 The greeting comes from the Stampendous Perfectly Clear set Ribbon Hope and the ribbon comes from the box set Stitched Grosgrain, which I have stuck down with double sided tape.

 I have finished the card with self adhesive pearls in 3mm and 5mm.

I am sure that the cards will be wonderful this week over on the Woodware Blog so why not take a look?

Tahnk you for visiting!

Woodware Challenge Week 21 Blue Christmas – Day 3

Hello while you read this I am on holiday, but not sunning myself  having a dip into the culture of Berlin, and perhaps some shopping.

I used the Magenta Rubber Stamp Under the Tree and stamped with a Clear Snap Watermark pad and embossed with Winter Wonderland Powder, it is a white embossing powder with silver glitter mixed through it. I stamped the tree once on navy card and twice on light blue card. I then cut the two light blue trees out and layered them on sticky fixers.  The greeting up the side comes from the Clear Magic set Christmas Sentiments designed by Jane Gill I embossed the greeting in white as I think that the letters are too  fine for the powder with glitter in it.

I have used glossy accents to make blobs in the centre of the baubles so that they have dimension and applied purple glitter, don’t tell anybody else on the Design Team that I cheated with the glitter colour, but it looks dark blue to me! Looks rather messy in the photo but I was not being too rough with it in case I had not let the glossy accents dry for long enough I didn’t want it to run out of the baubles! On the star I used glossy accents and crystal glitter, I used the same glitter on the parcels but I used a quickie glue pen to give me fine lines.

The border was punched with the Crafty Edger and the Star Cassette on the edge of the inside I stuck a strip of the same navy card that my tree is on, I covered the card with double sided adhesive sheet  and added the same two glitters to it.

Just to show off…….

another card done with the same stamp but in different shades of blue. The sparkle was added with the new Stampendous Shaved Ice

Well I think that is about it, I hope that you like my Woodware Challenge Blue Christmas card. The rest of the girls have done wonderful blue cards too so why not keep an eye on the Woodware Blog. Remember you can play along too.

Woodware Challenge A Touch of Pink

I really must start to work faster I really don’t think this is a very complicated card and I have taken ages to do it. I am very pleased with it and it worked out as I expected.

I have done a double easel card with 2 sheets of Magenta paper A Little Bird Told Me and some card.

The paper has 3 flowers in one corner and the bird in the other.

This is a sheet of 12 x 12 card front the Be Unique packs, score and fold the base card like this.

Cut a 6 x 6 panel in plain card and then the section of the paper with the bird on, cut a second bird from another sheet of paper and mount using foam 3d pads. the hearts were cut from the paper and coloured with Sakura pen.

The second panel is done with the flower section of the paper with another three cut out and mounted with 3d foam pads.

The centre section is stamped with a heart from Jane’s Clear Magic Set Now and for Ever and coloured with Sakura pens.

I hope that you like my card to see what the rest of the team have been up to pop over to the Woodware Blog. Thank you for popping in.

Birthday Wishes Woodware Challenge

I am posting first for the Woodware challenge this week, not sure if that is good or bad really.  The stamp that I have used is from Magenta it is called Daisy Corner and is available as a cling mounted stamp. I have again used the USArtQuest Stargazer palette to colour the flowers the palettes are so easy to use with a water brush and the effects are spectacular.

I have stamped the flower twice in Black Stazon and cut around it.

I have then cut out some of the flowers to add the extra ons to the card. I used Glossy Accents to apply the Micro Beads to the centre of the flowers. I have randomly curved the petals of the flowers and used differing highs of sticky fixers to give some movement to the overall effect.

The text is from a clear Stampendous set, Orchid Greetings it is one of my favourite greetings sets as I like the size  and style of the text. The box that the text is in is also from the same set I find the box useful for making a place for the text.

Well I hope that you like my card and that you will have a look at the rest of the cards this week on the Woodware Blog. It is Francoise turn tomorrow. Thank you for popping in.
