Baby Card

This baby card was made using some of my baby Peel Off's. I've gone for white this time as it's more in keeping for a baby. The die cut shapes are Quickutz or Lifestyle Crafts as they are now known.

I've used Sakura Souffle Pens to add colour. The colour is matt and opaque when it dries so you can use the pens effectively on coloured card. I love my tiny baby words!

Thank you

I just wanted to say thank you to those of you that came to The Glitter Pot On Saturday. It's always nice to see friendly faces and to catch up with everybody. I had a great day and I have hopefully inspired you to use Peel Off's more often in the future. If you missed me I will be at The Craft Barn for two days next weekend the 4th and 5th of June.

Love You

This is the second card from the previous workshop that did not run...
FRCL164 Sammy Snail and Friends.
The balloon however comes from set FRCL146 Tweety Birds.
Woodware also stock a tiny tag punch which is really sweet.
You have to do a bit of masking to get the tortoise to hold the balloon!

Demo at The Glitter Pot

Don't forget I'm at The GLitter Pot this Saturday the 28th of May doing a demo
with Sakura Pens and my latest 'Peel off's'. Come and see what it's all about!

Snail Mail

This is a card I prepared for a workshop that did not run. So rather than put it away out of sight I've decided to share it with you here on my blog!
This uses elements from set FRCL164 Sammy Snail and Friends.
If you like this set it works really well with FRCL146 Tweety Birds.
I love rainbows and any paper that creates that look.
It's a fun card.

Faux Mosaic

I thought I would share another Sakura Glaze pen technique with you. I have discovered that you can get a 'faux mosaic' look by drawing little pools of glaze. Take a look at the background around the flowers and you will see what I'm trying to describe!

Introducing Woodware Craft Collection Wedding Challenge

Hello this is the first card in the Woodware Craft Collection Blog Challenge this week we have wedding cards and you will be able to find a new card everyday this week on the Woodware Blog.
The set is FRCL117 also used on this easel card is a button this is a good way to make sure that your card stand up.

In this close up you can see that natural pearls in both 3mm and 5mm sizes have been used. The inverted corner rounder makes a great place for the  5mm pearls 

This card gives lots of places to add bits and pieces like ribbon and punched hearts. I hope you like this  wedding card and will pop to the Woodware Blog to have a look at what the rest of the team have been up too. Jane Gill our Flower Girl is posting her card on Tuesday.

Sharing a Cuppa

As I continue to prepare for my demo down at The Glitter Pot on the 28th of May
I give you my thoughts for today...
'How about a nice cup of tea and a sit down?'
On this card I've used paper piecing and Woodware Clear Magic Stamps

Sakura Glaze Pens

As we met with our colleagues from Sakura yesterday I thought I would post another card using
the Glaze pens and Peel Off's. If you have not tried mixing the colours as you apply them give it a go.
Tip:Always mix when glaze is really wet

Faux stitching

A little bit more paper piecing with my favourite owl from 'Patch an Owl' Clear Magic set. I like to add faux stitching with a fine line black pen.

Authors and Artists

As I'm on a roll I wanted to add the cards that we made at my workshops at Authors and Artists in Fleet on Saturday. I took everyone through the paper piecing technique which is one of my favourite ways to use colour in my stamping. You stamp your image on several sheets of patterned paper and cut out the sections you want to use. Then you either stamp a base on card or use one of the images on the patterned paper and stick the piece over the stamped image.
I've use Woodware Clear Magic stamps 'FRCL193 Patch an Owl' and 'FRCL194 Patch a House'
Everyone liked the brown and blue colour scheme.

Funky flower windows

As the weekend comes to a close I thought I would share another card made with black Peel Off's. I have used Sakura glaze pens to colour the image. These pens are so easy to use with Peel offs. I worked on pearl card so the pens work really well as it's less absorbent than ordinary card. I like the clean tidy finish of the card.

Getting started

Finally getting on with posting some cards on my blog! Well you have to start somewhere....
This card uses Peel Off's from my latest release. I've used black Peel Off's and Sakura pens for the colouring. I have made use of the waste to add a silhouette of a pot in the background. Really pleased with the result.
