Friday Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's Sneak Peek (another two-fer) mainly featuring the Woodware Into the Woods Stamp Set designed by Jane Gill and the Woodware Old Letter Stamp designed by Francoise Read.

For the background, I misted a piece of Coconut White Card with water and sprinkled Aubergine Dream Pixie Powder. Once dry, I stamped the Woodware Old Letter Stamp using Jet Black Archival. I made sure it was 100% dry and dusted with an Anti-Static Bag. I stamped the Woodware Into the Woods stamp using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Black Detail Embossing Powder. I matted onto Black Card and popped onto a Coconut White Card blank.

I stamped the sentiment which comes in the Into the Woods onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival and cut out using die #1 from Sue Wilson's Classic Adorned Rectangles Die Set. I cut #2 from the same set out of Black Card. I glued these 2 die cuts together and popped them inside my card. I stamped one of the stamps from the Woodware Small Fennel Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival.

Here's your 2nd card -

For the background, I spritzed a piece of Coconut White Card with water. I sprinkled over Straw Yellow and Burnt Orange Pixie Powders. While still wet, I moved the powders over the card using a Brush to create a wash. Once dry, I stamped the Woodware Old Letter Stamp using Chic Pumpkin Colour Cloud applied using a Smoothie. I also stamped the Woodware Splatters stamp using Chic Pumpkin (although my stamp still had some Sienna Archival on it so it came out a bit darker - happy accident!). I made sure it was 100% dry and then stamped the Into the Woods Stamp using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using die#4 from Sue's Classic Adorned Rectangles Die Set. I drew around the same die onto a piece of Black Card and cut it out using scossors to create a faux mat.

I dusted a piece of Coconut White Card with an Anti-Static Bag. I added Clear Perfect Medium to a Brayer and used it to ink up the #5 die in the same set. I popped this onto the dusted side of my card with the #6 die from the set and ran it through my Spellbinders Platinum Machine. The ink transferred to the deboss design. I added CS Gold Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. I drew around the #6 die in the set onto Black Card and cut it out using scissors to create a faux mat. I popped this onto Coconut White Card, then Black Card and then onto a Coconut White Card blank. I popped an 8mm Black Pearl into the corners.

I stamped the sentiment that is with the Into the Woods stamp onto a scrap of my background using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Gold Detail Powder. I cut it out using die #1 from the same set and die#2 out of Black Card.

Hope you've enjoyed this sneak peek - there'll more another tomorrow.

  1. Just gorgeous Julia. Just the style I like. Must have a go with stamping over pixie powders and I've thought for a while that I need black embossing powder. The gold I use a lot.
