Jeepers Creepers! Woodware sneaker card.

Welcome back to my crafty little blog.
Today I'm sharing a card design we made at our card making workshop at my shop Out Of The Blue in Chipping Sodbury near Bristol.
This card design went down very well with our craft ladies. They said it would be perfect when they find it hard to come up with a card for a male or someone of that 'inbetween' age.

For this card we used the Jeepers Creepers Sneaker stamp set from Woodware.

The main sneaker image was stamped twice in black ink & heat embossed onto watercolour card & then coloured with koi brush markers.
The images were cut out & holes created to thread twine through for the laces.
One sneaker was layered with 3 d foam onto the other.

The backgrounds were created with the background sneaker stamp & the other stamps in the Jeepers Creepers set.
The sneakers were raised up onto die cut circles along with the sentiment.

Thanks for visiting my blog.
Please leave me a comment & pop back again soon.

Friends are flowers in the garden of life canvas. Paperartsy JOFY stamp set 42

Hello & welcome back to my crafty little blog.
It's been a while since I last posted a project, so today I'm going to catch up a bit by sharing a canvas I made for my friend for her 40th Birthday.
We're both really busy & struggle to find the time to meet up very often so as well as this little gift we went on a spa day!.
It was a lovely relaxing treat with no kids to worry about & we felt really chilled at the end of the day.

Here's the canvas:

I decided to use the Paperartsy JOFY stamp set 42.
 It has the sentiment 'Friends are flowers in the garden of life'.

 I used a 6 x 6 deep edge square box canvas blank & painted it with Paperartsy fresco finish paint which dries quickly with a lovely, even, chalky finish.
I also painted the inside of the back of the canvas as this was going to now be the front!.

I cut some strips of turquoise card to fit the front panels of the box frame & using black ink stamped the loopy edging design across the top & bottom, filling the loops with lilac paint
I used the foliage down both edges & painted those & on a seperate piece of white card stamped the small flower & leaves which I coloured with promarkers.

I stamped the girl twice & coloured both girls with promarkers alternating the colours to match in with my background & flowers.
I cut them out & cut the legs & hair bun off of one of the girls.
I repositioned the hair bun & legs so that the front girl is shorter than her friend & has a different hairstyle.
They were then glued into place on the front of the canvas, one in front of the other.
I stamped & coloured the sentiment onto white card, added some flowers & blended around the edges with distress ink.
This was then glued into the back recess of the box canvas.

I then printed a personalised message onto card & glued it into place on the back of my box canvas along with some polka dot ribbon to hang it with.

Thanks for visiting.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday & I'll be back again very soon with another project to share.
