Woodware Design Team Challenge - Invitations

For this week's challenge I have chosen to use my cocktail set which would be just perfect if you are having a summer party or BBQ.

FRCL152 Cocktails

In the set there are various cocktails and wordings to compliment. 'Party time' is one of them.
The confetti border that I stamped around the edge of the circular panel on this card is a small stamp in the same set. 
I have layered up the glass as it is an easy shape to cut but if you had quite e few invitations to make you could omit that part.

For the colouring I have used Tombow pens and added some Stickles 'Diamond' glitter glue to frost the edge of the glass.

Pop along to the Woodware blog for more ideas from the design team.

Woodware Design Team Challenge - Sketch

For this week's sketch I have used one of my Peel off's designs in black. I have kept to the sketch and kept it very simple as there is quite a lot of detail in the main image.


To do the doodling I have use a black Sakura Micron pen. To add the colour to the flowers and vases I have used Sakura dark Stardust pens. I like to water colour using these pens. I usually put a line of colour around the inside edge of the Peel Off's and drag the colour out with a brush and water. 
If you are a little scared to doodle freehand you can use Zentangle patterns. The sections in this design are quite small so the doodling is very simple.

Why not pop along to the Woodware blog for other ideas using this sketch.

Woodware Design Team Challenge - A child's card

The set that I have used to create this card is perfect for any cute little monster!

FRCL064 Little monsters

I love all the little elements like eyes and mouths that you can use to make up your own monsters.

I have used an A4 sheet of card which I have cut down the middle into two long strips. I have scored and folded one of the strips into four panel. Finally I cut of the corners for a tag effect.

I used Tombow pens to colour the little monsters. I have added some 'Stickles Diamond' glitter for fun. Pop along to the Woodware blog for some more fun ideas!

Woodware Design Team challenge - Red, white and blue

A quick post... or quick card. I picked up a free paper from Waitrose and really liked the design on the front page. I knew it would make a really nice backdrop for this Stampendous stamp : London Cling Stamp
I stamped the image and then added colour to make the flag and letters pop. I have use a Sakura clear glaze pen over the red on the flag and over the letters.I have added some Mark Richards bling and finished off with some ribbon. 

I really like this stamp and it has a lot of potential for other creative projects. Why not pop along to the Woodware blog to see other examples using this stamp.

Woodware Design Team Challenge - Buttons and bows

I do love buttons and bows!! as most of you probably already know....
On this card I have used Woodware blue buttons and yellow gingham ribbon. The bugs were made up by stamping elements from this set:
FRCL216 Patch a Bug
It's a real fun set that can be used to make up a caterpillar or flowers using the wings as petals. There is also a cute ladybug in this set.
The papers come from the 'London'
collection. I like my ginghams and there are two sheets of it in this collection.
For the flowers I have used the regular and large Woodware Daisy punches. I have highlighted the centres with a white Sakura pen.
For a change from wrapping the ribbon around the card I stuck a length across the card and added a bow at the end made separately.

Pop along to the Woodware Blog for some more inspiration on buttons and bows.
