Woodware Design Team Challenge - Up-cycling

A rather humble offering from me this week as I am so busy completing the Spring designs...

I have chosen to up cycle a large paperclip into a book mark using a stamped image and punches from the Woodware range.... really cute buttons.

The owl is from this set
FRCL141 Owl Greetings

I have used pencils for the colouring and added glitter and glossy accents for a finishing touch.

The large black heart  has been glued to the paperclip using glossy accents. It makes a very good strong glue.

You could attach the paperclip to a card to make a gift.

Woodware Design Team Challenge - Shades of red

One of my favourite stamps from this year's Christmas release. 

FRS218 Huge Jingle Bells

I have used different red patterned papers to paper piece the letters.

I used a Woodware green bell punch for the little bells. I have edged them with black ink to make them pop and added sone little bows.
I have glittered the big white spots with ultra fine clear glitter. Very easy to do using a clear Sakura glaze pen as a gluing medium. 

I'm last to post this week so why not see what the other team members have come up with on the Woodware Blog for this challenge.

Woodware Design Team Challenge - Vintage Christmas

I'm leading the challenge this week... So I chose to use a Christmas bell for my vintage design. I have also done this bell in modern Christmas colours and it works equally well.

FRS101 Holly Bell

I stamped the bell using an ochre die based inkpad and before adding the other colours I bled out the ink with a water brush. This is what gives it a vintage look.

The greeting comes from this set:

FRCL171 All Through the Year

I used the same water colour technique over the stamped greeting.
I have gone over the outline with some diamond 'Stickles' and add some 3 mm and 5 mm red 'Nailheads' for berries.

Do check in over the coming week to see other ideas for 'Wintage Christmas' over on the Woodware Blog.

Woodware Design Team Challenge - Sketch

One of my stamp sets happens to have a window so I thought it would fit in really well with this week's sketch challenge.

FRCL183 House Proud

This set also includes the curtains, cat and flowerpots.

I used the flowers from this set to decorate the curtains

FRCL169 Birdsong
The curtain pole is made out of a strip of brown card and two small punched circles to which I have added some Mark Richards 'nailheads'.

The two small pictures are made from some tiny pieces of Magenta paper.

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