Bee 🐝 Happy - Woodware

Hi! Beautiful morning here, blue skies and sunny so what the heck am I doing indoors when I should be out enjoying the sun or at least digging on my allotment cause it certainly needs it lol!
Good job I have got things in order ready for the next classes so that means I can go spend some time out in the fresh air this afternoon but I'm not sure how much digging there will be.
Speaking of 🐝🐝🐝's (hope you all can see the graphics I have inserted, if not they are meant to be bee's) which is the nature of our theme for our next classroom meeting.
BEE HAPPY is the stamp set from Woodware which I have used on this cute little Pocket Pull Out Tag Card along with the latest new range of Chalk Cloud Blending Inks which by the way are now available in the shop.
There are quite a lot of ellements to this project so we might only have enough time to do this one but if it goes quicker than ecpected we shall make a 6x6 card using the same images we shall just have to see what happens on the day.
Lets have a look at what I used........

Here are a few things that I used, please ignore the colour of the main image as I decided to change it as you will see.
 You can see that the card is inside the pocket.

Black Versafine
Clear powder

Gold Glitter Kiss
 Now you can see the different colours I chose as I thought these worked better together.
Flowers coloured with my pencils, background coloured with the chalk inks.

 Happy birthday die is from Sara's new Glamour range.
Pull the ribon and the tag will pop out at the top and bottom of the little pocket.

I have used my Clear Sparkle pen to colour the bee's.
Mini stencil from Creative Expressions.

Once again the photos don't look half as good as the actual finished project.

See you soon x

Marguerite Patch - Woodware

Good Morning! Hope it's bright and sunny where you are, we have some lovely sunshine here today lets hope it will last for a while cause I really do need to pay a visit to my greenhouse as it is looking rather neglected and I so have to get a move on and sort it out.
For our next set of classes I thought that I would be kind and give you something that will be nice and easy and relaxing to do so no die cutting just a little stamping and colouring well actually painting using the delightful Starlight Paints and a couple of the Spectrum Sparkle pens and Voila! Two simple yet pretty cards.
So! One stamp which comes from the Clear Magic range by Woodware and has the name Marguerite Patch.
I have used my Black Versafine and Clear embossing powder on the 7x7 card and my Clear Versamark ink and White embossing powder on the 6x6 Kraft card.
Hope you like them..........

Starlight Paint
 (Imagination Crafts)
 Sparkle pens from the Vintage set by Crafters Companion.
The flower has also been stamped onto Parchment and cut out then added as an extra layer.
 This is the 6x6 card and is from the new Kraft card & envelope packs which Louise sells in the shop.
The background has been made with the sparkle pens painted onto card with a wet paint brush.

Might add a die cut sentiment later.
The photo does not do the card justice!
You can't really see the super effects of the Starlight paint you will have to enlarge the photo to get a better view.
Don't forget to bring a small round paint brush. See you soon x

Potting Shed - Bring your Wellington Boots

Hello! The Potting Shed from Craftwork Cards, this is the lovely 8x8 double sided paper pad that features in our next card classes along with the Colour Me Die Cut Topper Tag pad and a couple of stamps and embossing folders to complete the mix.
Stormy Sky
Pumice Stone
Gathered Twigs
Shaded Lilac

Black Versafine
Black Memento
Clear Powder
Clear Sparkle Pen
Glue Pen
Crystal Glitter
Heather Gilding Polish

 Pen colours.

 As you can see in both photos here I have used some of my Spectrum Noir pens to colour parts of the wellington which I have made using a template.

This is an 8x8 card.

The background is embossed with the A4 Honeycomb folder and the little plant marker was embossed in the Wood grain Texture folder.
 Both cards are still waiting for a sentiment but I just haven't decided on any yet so they look a bit unfinished, will sort them out later before class.

This card is A5
As you might of already noticed I have used the flower stamp from Leonie's Dragonfly set.

The little bumblebee is from a Woodware stamp set that I will be using in the near future called Bee Happy.
Ok lets see who is paying attention, you will need to bring a pencil to draw out your template. Can't wait for class now just to see how many of you have read to the end of this post lol!!
See you soon x

Create in Colour - Fly Free

Afternoon, hope everyone is feeling well. Thought this week I would make things a little more colourful just to cheer every body up. I have chosen a few colours of Distress inks to make the background on our first card for this week which is  by the way 8x8, and thrown into the mix is one of Sheena Douglass's new 8x8 Stencils called Take Your Leaf. As per usual the photos don't do the cards justice. Also used on both cards are the new stamps from Leonie Pujol and Woodware.
Leonie's is Fly Free and the Woodware one is Netting Background.
After making an early start this morning and then having  a major disaster right near the finish of my first card, so having to start from scratch it has taken me twice as long to complete both cards, was not a happy bunny I can tell you and I don't even have the cat to blame this time ☹
Well I got there in the end so lets see what you think.......

Distress Ink Pads.
Ripe Persimmon
Festive Berries
Mustard Seed
Picked Radpberry
Peacock Feathers
Forest Moss
Peeled Paint
Black Soot
Seedless Perserves
What a list that is !!!!

Black Versafine
Clear Powder

Anti-static bag
White Gel Pen

Clear Sparkle Pen

Dark Cherry Gilding Polish

Take Your Leaf Stencil
Blending foam or Smoothies

Card Two is 5x7

Lattice Embossing folder from Sara's Shabby Chic range

Ocean Teal Gilding Polish
Silver Glitter Kiss

Not quite finished yet but I have added some Glossy Accents to the centre of the flowers, it's not dry yet so I can't go any further till it does.

I have coloured my cardstock with the distress inks before stsmping out all of the elements required, each one has been stamped in back ink and embossed in clear powder.

Bring your scissors lol!  You will need them!!!!
See you soon x
