I have had a very quite crafting time for the past few months. I in the autumn I went to a quilting class locally and had fun, so I made a quilt on my own using the same method as I had learnt.
All made from fabric that I had in my stash!
I do like the strip method, but I suppose I should try something else.
But then I have been cheating…
I have made four seat pads that have been stamped and then stitched with a zigzag to make them look quilted. There are great for extra seating or taking outside to add to garden chairs and can just be thrown in the washing machine.
I saw this on pinterest, and think it is a perfect idea for an none traditional card, and of course the Woodware Gingham Ribbon
I cut a triangle (well I folded some thin card in half and chopped it, then I measured and made holes in a rectangle of card, and used my Woodware Pierce it Tool to make evenly space holes. This became my template.
Then I added the ribbon.
I tried various ways to do this.
But in the end I decided that cutting the lengths for each row war the easiest way to keep the ribbon even and not rip the holes too much by putting them under pressure.
I had cut my four cards for the front the same size as my template before I started.
I just used double-sided tape to attach the fronts, although 3D mounting tape would work really well.
I Frantaged my star buttons not sure what I would do without these Woodware buttons
The papers are Time Flies too, I hope that you can see that I have sprayed the background paper with the blue colour from the Rangers Dylusions Mica Sprays, it is very subtile but lovely, of course it shows up more on dark papers.
I have embossed in silver around all of the layers.
I made a mistake when I was putting the card together and had trouble added the ribbon, it should have been added before I put the layers together!
I stamped and embossed the greeting from the same stamp set on the Time Flies paper, and used the Tag Top punch.

I’m back again with some more Christmas tags for Woodware Witterings, this time with a great Stampendous set
Truck Tidings is a cling rubber stamp and die set, by Stampendous, the trees are part of the set, but the truck would make great new home cards or moving cards too.
The trucks were stamped on blue card and cut out. The Stampendous dies all cut on the line, so give perfect results. I have coloured the trucks with Sakura Koi Brush Pens and the Clear Stardust Gelly Roll pen, for the bumper.
I have done the trees in blue paper too. I cut some white ones to write on, but I have not stamped them. The decoration is the White Pearl Pen from Dutch Doobadoo.
The greeting comes with the flower, I have stamped it on the same card and then coloured around the edges with the Purple Crafters Ink. I just run the card gently through the ink pad. It is enough to give the illusion of another layer and very quick!
I small piece of ribbon under the greeting and around the panel finished the card off.
