A couple more patchwork cards

I also made these two samples for Joanna.  I used the Joanna Sheen Everyday Patchwork stamps on both of them
 Teddy Bear card
 I printed out 4 teddy outlines.  I stamped the 3 different coloured parts using the little hearts patches stamp on 3 bears.  I then cut out the parts and paper pieced them onto the 4th bear.  The background was stamped using the grid technique.  I glittered the edges of the background and the topper with stickles glue.

 Heart frame
I made the frame first, but you could use any frame that you have for this. I lightly drew around the heart onto black paper with pencil and used this as a guide to where I wanted to stamp my patchwork to look even on the frame, then I used the grid to stamp - embossing with silver and clear powders as I went. Then I cut it out and glued to front of frame adding lots of sparkly gems around the edges.

Thank you for visiting my blog to day.  I will be back later with more sample cards using the Vintage flower stamps.

Joanna Sheens Victorian Christmas Cards CD Samples

Joanna launched a brand new Christmas CD on Friday

I loved making these samples for the show

This one uses the large topper on the printed sheet. I layered it onto gold and red and for the background I used torn papers to continue the snowy scene in the picture.

 I used the larger topper on the printed sheet plus one of the star decorations from the decorations section on the CD.  I scored lines and folded the star to make it 3D.  I put an acetate sleeve over the picture adding white dots all over for a more snowy effect. Both the backing papers are on the CD.

 I used the large topper and a smaller one from the sheet.  I made a shaker bauble with the smaller one adding a frilly lace edge.  I added tiny blue stars and gems all over the card! The backing papers are from the CD.

 I used a larger topper and smaller one on the sheet plus the backing paper and sentiment. This card is simply matting and layering with a lovely bright polka dot ribbon bow.

 I used the large topper and the backing paper that already had the small round image in the corner. The snowflake frame is punched out as is the red border at the bottom.

 I used one of the smaller images on the printed sheet with one of the sentiments. Everything else is cream card embossed and gently highlighted with Antique linen distress ink. The background was scored on my hougie board. I added punched holly, some gold papers and gems to finish.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope I've inspired some of you to have a go at CD crafting.

I'll be back later with my samples from the Vintage floral stamps.

Christmas Patchwork Stamps and samples

Congratulations! to Joanna, I am delighted that the Christmas Patchwork stamps that are New - SOLD OUT during the TV shows on Create and Craft today.
I really enjoyed designing both these stamp sets

I used the Grid technique with the patchwork stamps for all of these samples.  I created the grid to help stamp each square in the right place when creating a pattern with the patchwork stamps.
You can download the grid with instructions here  

Here are the samples made by me that were on Joanna's Shows today.  

Tree easel card
First I cut a template for the tree shape then drawing round it onto white card to use as a guide to  stamp my patchwork pattern with versamark and WOW GLOW IN THE DARK embossing powder.
I then water coloured each green square with distress inks using 2 colours.  Only the green tree is glow in the dark.  The embossing on the base is normal white powder.This card is great fun, I couldn't stop looking at it glow in the dark Lolol!
This is how much it glows in the dark!!

Snowman Hearts
This card was so simple to do.  I die cut 8 hearts - Stamped half with the snowman and half snowflake stamps and the other half using the full snowflake and half snowflake stripe stamps all with a lovely pigmant ink pad  in blue shades. - placing them around the card that makes a star shape in the middle. I used a glue pen and sparkly foil to add faux stitching and the Merry Christmas is from an embossing folder - I used a pen to add dots to look like stitching on the letters.

Blue and white quilt card
I stamped the outer part first using the grid to guide to keep it all square, then on another piece of card I stamped the 9 square piece, cutting out and layering it on top of the base pattern.  The very middle is the star stamp from the Joanna Sheen I love knitting stamp sheet that I designed for Joanna last year.  I stamped it 4 times in blue layering it up and adding glitter to the top star finithing off with a gem in the centre and a few punched snowflakes in the corners.  the faux stitching was done with glue pen and silver holo foil.

Christmas patchwork Stockings
I cut out 2 stocking shapes one green, one grey.  I stamped a patchwork pattern onto each one embossing with white powder.  The white tops and toe/heel parts are cut out of felt. The rest of the card was done with embossing folders and punches.

Patchwork sampler
I decided to stamp a selection of 8" x 8" blocks using both the Everyday and Christmas stamps.  I used the grid to keep everything in line as I stamped.  These show how pretty the stamps can look and it is really simple to do.


Paper 3D star
I used this fabulous pattern that I got from the web a few years ago.  I cut out 5 of the larger pieces and stamped the patterns using 2 triangle stamps and 2 colours.  I embossed every time using a lovely gold sparkle opaque powder for a glimmer of gold.  All the lines are done with a versamark pen and gold embossing powder.  Once all 5 were stamped, embossed and scored, I folded each one and glued together with wet glue as per the instructions from the link above.  I think this makes a wonderful decoration.  These stars look fabulous stamped or unstamped and I am quite hooked on them LOLOL!!

Patchwork Cushion
I stamped the pattern onto 2 6" x 6" squares of white cotton.  I used distress inks but versacraft inks would have been so much better but I didn't have any.  I still ironed each one after stamping to set the ink although this will never be able to be washed... as the ink would vanish Lol!  I made 2 tassels with bright red wool.  I stuffed and sewed the cushion adding 2 sparkly buttons in the middle.

Raffia wreath patchwork card
I stamped and embossed with white part of the pattern onto kraft card,  I then stamped and embossed with red onto cream card, I cut the red ones out and pieced them onto the kraft card to finish the pattern I wanted.  I stamped a small square in the middle with 4 triangle corners layering this on top.  I made the raffia wreath by twisting the raffia in and out as I turned it. 

Stained glass look
Used a free STAINED GLASS template.  Printed out 8 – used promarkers to add one colour on  each sheet. I then stamped and embossed with clear powder on each coloured part using different stamp designs. Cut out each portion of the design and PAPER PIECED them onto the last  printed template using it as a guide. Once together I inked with distress ink
Advent Calendar
Stamped-embossed in Gold all the squares. Painted each of them according to the patterns.
Stamped and cut out inside of doors -sticking the advent squares to fronts. Glued whole design  onto 12” paper - Matt and layered  design onto papers and board. Added die cut numbers inside the doors.
