I’ve been playing with bold bright embossing powders from Wow! This design features the Flower Head stamps from Woodware along with Blue Tang powder, Olive powder, and Pink Lady powder. The word stamps are also Woodware – the Just to Say set. I’ve made a couple of variations of this card – can you spot the differences?
These bold flowers are easy to cut out so are perfect for layering. I have finished each flower with a rhinestone centre.
Join me at this workshop at the shop on Thursday 27th September 5-7pm (£15) or at Creativity in Harleston on 9th November 1.30-3.30.
Back again next time with a pastel version of this design.
I recently attended a training weekend with PaperArtsy and then time has just whizzed past and I haven’t had a chance to do anything with the stamps I got on the day. I’ll be soon getting these new designs in stock – once time allows!! So a quick and easy tag idea for you. I started by stamping and embossing my flower stamp in White embossing powder (have you seen we now stock loads of Wow embossing powders – they are fab!!)… sorry – easily distracted…back to my design. So, once you have embossed, then go over the top with distress inks – I’ve used Blueprint Sketch and a mix of the other paler blues applied with my applicator for smoother blending. A final addition of some ink through a stencil adds a bit of further detail. Finally take a soft cloth and buff up your white embossing to remove any distress ink resting on top of it.
Its a fun technique that can be ideal for a quick card idea.
Playing with the Woodware Persian Flower stamp today. I’ve now created a few different variations using this stamp designs. That’s the nice thing with detailed flower stamps – endless possibilities of ways to colour them!
I’ve been busy playing with some Woodware stamps whilst I’ve been absent from my blog, so you can look forward to seeing lots of new projects appearing over the next couple of weeks. A big hello to everyone who came to meet me at the recent Sincerely Yours Thetford show – you will recognise these cards from my sample boards on the day! They will also be featuring in my workshop this coming Thursday too (give me a call if you want to book your place – details on the website). (more…)
I can’t believe how quickly this stamp sold out at Thetford on Sunday! All gone within the first hour. I will be re-ordering this design, so keep an eye on the website for when it is back in stock.
A simple silver mirri mount and another blue mount and all finished! This design is keeping it simple. I have stamped and embossed the Woodware Bubble Bloom Festive Tree stamp with silver sparkle embossing powder onto a deep blue cardstock, and the greeting is from the same stamp. (more…)
You all know by now how much I love my zentangling! Well of course I knew this stamp would be perfect to zentangle designs into. I’ve tried out some new designs this time – some I made up, some I found on my travels online. (more…)
Back again with the Woodware Bubble Bloom Festive Tree stamp. As you read this the doors will just be opening on the Sincerely Yours show at Thetford and I will be sat at my demo table raring to show you all these lovely stamps and samples! I do love to demonstrate at shows, everyone is always so keen to learn! (more…)
More design ideas with the Woodware Sprig of Holly stamp today. This time I have worked onto vellum/parchment type of paper. I started by heat embossing my design in white. I have then used my white gel pen to zentangle patterns inside. (more…)
This is the second Woodware Stamp I’ve been playing with this week. This one is Bubble Bloom Festive Tree. If you saw what I did earlier in the year with the Bubble Bloom stamp, the same techniques can be applied with this tree stamp too (click on the Woodware category to see my previous posts). (more…)
