Club Scrap Blog Hop: Woven Strands

Welcome to another Club Scrap Blog hop.
Hope you came here from
and admired her wonderful artwork.

First a little confession:
I have some computer problems
and so I cannot print all the pictures
and things I want and getting this mail
through another computer as not
to dissappoint you today.

My other project I hope to share soon,
for it is just too cute.

Today I have an easel card for you.
Instruction for a card like this can be found 

I made this card for Raymond (my DH), who
had his birthday yesterday.

This is the front panelof the card with
one of the wonderful Woven Strands stamps.

When you open the card,it looks like this
and stays standing up behind the sentiment.

Lots of bling came with this box
and as my DH is a gem, of course I added a lot!
After stamping the square stamp and coloring it,
I akso stamped it agai on apiece of green cardstock,that is
added with foamtape in the heart of the stamp.
The moustache symbolizes my husband
and is done with a die by sizzix.

This way the card looks sideways.

So for mor inspiration you hop on now to

If you loose your way,
you can always go back to
the main Club Scrap blog
where you fnd all the participants and

Happy Hopping!

Stencil Time 8

Sometimes you have a need for sympathy cards
and these days I need a few. I came up with this idea
with the stencil and green and brown ink.

The papers and sentiments are all by Club Scrap.
Sentiments are from March 2014 Trees.

Start with laying your fern stencil on top
of the paper.

Take the green ink and a blending tool
to sponge all around the fern stencil.
Now take the brown ink and just go
around the fern, not the whole panel.

Move the stencil to the other part of the panel
and take the green ink again and
rub again just around the fern.
You will see 2 tones of green when you move
the stencil away.
Stamp on a seperate piece of white paper
your chosen sentiment and mat it on the kraft
paper. Move it onto the place you want it
and use the stencil again. Lightly add some
brown in on the sentiment. 
On the finished cards I added some gemstones that came 
with the Woven Strands kit.

Thanks for looking and remember Blog Hop on Wednesday!
I have a sneakpeek for you tomorrow........

Have a creative day!

Stencil Time: Sunday Scrap Page

Is is Sunday again?
How time flies! And also for Sunday I have a stencil idea.

I have told you before that I have no use
of the Club Scrap Mountains kit theme,
but the colors are lovely.
So I turned the paper and had a lovely cream color
to work on.
So I got the stencils out and some onks and got
to work with a blending tool on this piece of paper.
After som work,this is the result.
Now i get the photo's printed and can finish the page.
And because this page is about our Safari Trip 
with Owen on Omaday I added the giraffe stamp
by Michael Strong. I stamped it on yellow paper
and added some other colors with pencil.

And in my stash I found a piece of giraffe ribbon 
that I had to add with the button on top.

Thank you for looking
and the last stencil idea is tomorrow.
Have a creative day!

Stencil Time 6: Saturday sketch card

This card is made with a stencil by
It came with the Hannah's Busy Bee stamp set.
The giraffe is also by Michael Strong.

For this card I used a sketch from the 

I started by laying the stencil in the
same angle as on the sketch.
Then I added some dark brown ink.
Taking away the stencil and adding
the sentiment stamp with black ink.
(De sentiment is from Club Scrap's
Woven Strand kit)
Then I stamped the giraffe on a seperate piece of
paper in black ink and colored it with pencils.

The leaves are punched out from the
Stampin'Up! bird builder punch.
And on top the giraffe is added.

Thank you for looking.
Tomorrow the last stencil idea on a scrappage.
Hope to see you again.

Stencil Time 5

Are you tired of my stenciling?
I hope not, for I have another idea for you.

Stencil and gesso

The fern stencil is by Club Scrap
and you can find it HERE.

1. I took green paper for this and 
put the fern stencil on top.

2. Take gessoand a soft brush to
cover all of the panel.

3. Take away the fern stencil and let
the gesso air dry.

4. Now take the honeycomb stencil.
you find it HERE
Take a topaz inkpad and color
around the fern.

This is how it looks when you take the stencil away.

Even more close up.

And how can I trow away the cut this is perfect
to use for decoration on the inside!

Thanks for looking and hopefully you come back
for more tomorrow.
Have a creative day!

Stencil Time4

Today's stencil card is made with
Club Scrap Woven Strands for 
this sketch challenge on the 

I already had the idea of showing you how to use
part of your stencil and this sketch is just perfect for it.

So this is how I created the horizontal line:
Paper panel on the craft sheet.
On top a stecil of your choice and post-it notes.
Fasten with washi tape so stencil and papers
keep in place.
I used three colors of ink to make the border.

After taking away the stencil it looks like this.
and I can finish the card.
The doted backgound is a stamp from the Botanical kit
and the little gemstones came with the Woven Strands kit
as well as the sentiment.

Now as you can make one border on the card,
why not two?
Here you see how the panel has more than one border
with the same stencil. I turned it to get
the border on the same pace.

This is the finished card with a sentiment
and a triangle stamp from the 
Club Scrap Woven Strands kit.

Thanks again for looking and
hope to see you for another stencil post tomorrow.

Have a creative day!
