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.


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


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


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.


then move the mask down and repeat


the three hearts sit nicely on the panel.


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.


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 Challenge Week 26 – Pick a Colour and Go With It!

I have tried not to be predictable this week and have not used purple, which is my favourite colour and would have been so easy to work with!

So I have used brown and shades of it!

First I punched the tags using the multi tag punch I used Oslo 2 paper.   The stamps are from Jane’s Clear Magic Set Dashing Reindeer, I know you are now looking for the reindeer, but I have just used the rather cute parcels. I stamped them with a Vintage Sepia Versafine Pad and then embossed with  Clear Bark embossing powder. I rather like brown embossing. I coloured the parcels with Tombow pens and then added Glossy Accents to add dimension. Some of the parcel were stamped and cut out and some were stamped straight on to the tags.

The greeting is Double Sided sticky peel off Big Happy Christmas which is also available in loads of colours. On the sticky I have used Gildenglitz from USArtQuest, sorry I am not sure what colours as it was just my leftovers from previous projects.

The organza ribbon is the brown with white dots the finishing touches are Mark Richard metals in the 5mm gold.

I cut the brown layer with the deckle blade and the Finger Gusrd Trimmer.

Why not pop over to the Woodware blog to see what the rest of the girls have been up too, thank you for calling see you soon.

Woodware Challenge Week 22 – Spooks and Treats

I am back from a lovely holiday and trying to get into the swing of things. I know that lots of people have reservations about Halloween but I think that it is a great excuse for a party for children. I love the ducking for apples and the dough rings dipped in syrup and hung on a string! Is it just me?

So I have made a party invitation.

The stamp is a Fluffles one from Stampendous Flying Fluffles he is available in wood mounted or cling rubber.

I stamped and embossed Fluffles with Chinese Red embossing powder.

to accent Fluffles rather odd eyes I used a Sakura clear glaze pen, and to highlight the nails and tail I used the Sakura Clear Stardust pen.

For the Party Time bit I used an Orange Glaze pen and added glitter to it while it was wet. Then I outlined it with the clear stardust to make it pop and then used black ink to mess it up a bit.

I used the Super Scalloped Circle Punch to punch out all of the circles and used foam pads to raise them off the cards. The wavy lines in the background are the new velvet peel offs, I think that you can see the fuzzy edges in the close up.

I have also done a party dish.

I used Fluffles again and made a strip with the Star Party Crafty Edger Cassette and attached it to a bowl.  I hope that the eve of all Saints day is a fun day for you.

Thank you for visiting.

Woodware Challenge Week 19 Sketch Challenge 5

This week for the Woodware Challenge we have another sketch.

I like the sketch challenges as I feel that I have somewhere to start.

I have used a Dreamweaver stencil Wisteria. I am sorry I am not sure what colours it should be so I went with my imagination. I enjoy stencilling with a light box but it is so simple to stencil now with a machine!

I used the metal from Mercart that is a new product for Woodware. It is coloured aluminium I have used Brown Latte. I have then coloured the metal with Peel Off Pens.

I have used the Vine Peel Offs in clear glitter at the joins between the card layers.

That is it! Very simple which ever cutting and embossing machine you have you can run Dreamweaver Stencils throught it for fast embossing. I like using the machine with the metal as it is much less forgiving that card so it is nice to be able to quickly run it through and that reduces handling.

Check the Woodware blog to see what the rest of the team have been up too.

Layering Peel Off’s

I got a bit carried away when I was writing up the bunch of flowers post and thought I would like to do a step by step of the glitter on the peel off’s.

This is the finished card, done with the with back to front peel off’s Daisy2 in white and cerise, Chain Letter Birthday peel off’s and the paper is from the Cloisonne 8 x 8 pad

First take your peel off’s off the sheet and lay then sticky side up on your craft sheet.

Add the centre of the flowers by mixing and matching the different colours of peel off’s. Then dip them into the glitter and flock mix. Cover it well and press the glitter/flock onto the peel off’s.

Use foam pads to attach the flowers to the card to give you a raised flower.

The stems were added with a Sakura pen.

Woodware Challenge 4 Bunch of Flowers

Bunch of Flowers

Bunch of Flowers

 This week I have used layered peel offs  for my flowers, they are really good fun and they are a nice thing to play with when you just want to watch telly and fiddle without much effort. The thing that I like about the peel offs is that you can change the appearance and creat 3D cards with them.

This photograph lets you see that the peel offs have had a home made mix of pink flock and glitter added to the sticky side of them. First peel them off and add centres then add the flock glitter mixture. I used pink, blue and purple peel offs but only the pink glitter/flock mixture. By using the various colours of peel offs I got enough colour variety without the mess that I would have had around the kitchen and the dog with lots off different glitter and flock going around.

The stamped image in the background was done with Onyx Black Versafine and is from a Stampendous Shape Shifter set, if you have not tried shape shifting you really should very exciting! Fran’s video will reveal all Shape Shifting.

The edges were done with a sponge and Stargazer Mica watecolour pallet, and the water in the vase was done with the pallet and a water brush.

Here you can see I have been adding the centres to the pale green leaves from the dark green sheet.

I hope that you have enjoyed this card pop over to the Woodware Blog to see what the rest of the team have been up to.

Crafty Edger and Peel Offs

This is a 12inch x 6 inch card the edge was made with the crafty edger. The peel offs I have used are Francoise’s  For the out line portion of the sticker I used black card. The black card has been water coloured with the Sakura metallic gel pens, I love the mixture of water colour and shimmer. With the help of Magi-film I used up the rest of the peel off.
