Don’t forget that Dreamweaver and Woodware are blog hopping together all week! To find out where to start visit Dream it up or Woodware and remember to leave comments as you hop around the blogs to have a chance to win some blog candy.
I am last this week to post for the Woodware challenge and as usual I am at the last minute! I am in a hotel tonight as I have been at Days to Remember in Falkirk doing a demo and I am back there again tomorrow. I have spent all day playing with the Woodware’s Crafty Edger including the new corner punches. It has been fun! I hope the customers had as good a time as I did.
So I came back to the hotel tonight and put together the card that I had the pieces for.
The challenge was take 2 colours I Have used purple and yellow. Or to be more precise lavender and lemon.
The stamps are a new Woodware Clear Magic set designed by Francoise Patch a Bauble. I stamped with VersaMark and embossed one image in Grape and one in Sunny Yellow. I also used Boss Gloss and embossed Grape around the edge of the card. I had not used Boss Gloss for a long time until recently and I am wondering why I stopped using it, it is so useful.
To see what the rest of the girls on the Design Team have been up to have a look at the Woodware Blog.
Mini File Folders
The files come as a die-cut A4 sheet, I started by colouring them with a combination of Orchid Pink Brilliance pad and Russet Chalk Yink, I used a 3/8″ stencil brush on the ink pads and used a circular motion to add the colour.
I used the same ink and brush to colour through Dreamweaver Petals Background Stencil.
The background paper is from a GCD 8 x 8 pad I embossed the border from Stampendous Perfectly Clear Damask Chair and I embossed it with one of the brand new Stampendous Embossing powders Aged Black Embossing Enamel these embossing powders are really yummy.
The tags were punched from a multi tag punch that and I used the largest and the smallest size of tag.
The other stamps all come from the Stampendous Perfectly Clear Charm Collection These are tiny stamps which are fun to use with great detail, they are all available in larger sizes in various sets, and really I want them all!
The crown is dine with Vintage Plum Tinsel.
Oh this was so much fun and I really should be in bed but I got a bit carried away so I will hopefully manage to do some more cards with the bits tomorrow!
Thank you for visiting.
Well I hope that you are having a sunny summer. I spent the weekend in Northumberland, in this small hostel with my family we had the whole place to ourselves and had a lovely time. The sun shone all the time we were there.
I am now back in Aberdeen and my card for the challenge this week is very appropriate.
The Wellies come from an Artemio Clear Set called North Sea and I have stamped it with Pearly Ivy Brilliance Ink. They are a solid stamp and I liked the mottled effect that I got because it was a new stamp.
I hope you like my postcard from Scotland as I sit watching the rain fall again. We have a wide variety of Summer Fun for you this week on the Woodware Blog.
This week it another sketch for the Woodware Challenge, I really like doing these, it makes you think differently about your card.
I have used a Stampendous stamp Tiers of Treats and as usual I have coloured the cakes with USArtQuest Mica pallet , but I have also used Sakura pens and Tombow Pens, I don’t think that the photograph shows up the differences that using the different colouring methods give. The paper comes from a GCD 8 x 8 pad. I really like that these double sided pads. The background paper behind the stamped image was made with Memory Mist spray, the sprays are really good for creating papers I tend to do a selection at a time.
The corners were made with the must have corner rounder. The greeting comes from a Woodware Clear Magic Set by Francoise called Sharing Cuppa and the frame is from is from a Stampendous Perfectly Clear Set. The Woodware Inverted Corner punch is a perfect fit for the frame.
I hope that you like this card, please play along with us and link your card on the Woodware Blog. Please visit again soon.
