Woodware Traditional Christmas

This week on the Woodware Blog we are looking at Traditional Christmas Cards, Crafty Debs made me think about the meaning of traditional and what it means to everybody, which really made me struggle to decide what to do for this challenge.


So I have gone for an angel and a traditional wish.


The stamp is Elegant Angels a Stampendous Perfectly Clear set. I have embossed it in white, and then cut with the Dreamweaver Long Nesting Ovals, the dies are a very elegant shape.


The background is dark blue 12 x 12 vellum. I have stamped with the Stampendous Delicate Snowflake Jumbo cling rubber set, and embossed with Periwinkle Powder. Around the edge I have used the new Embossing Plus Snow Kit.


For the wording I used the Dreamweaver Dual Alphabet and Numbers Die Set, I stamped the card with the same snowflakes before I cut the letters out.


The white card was stamped with the snowflake too.


I decided to make this an easel card so I made a platform to make a stop.


and added some shriveled ribbon, and my last word.

Woodware Christmas Decorations

Over on the Woodware blog this week we are looking at decorations, I really enjoy making and displaying Christmas Decorations and the selection that we have on show this week I hope will inspire you to get the glue gun out.

I really like the tree that Suzanne from CukyBugCrafts has shared with us, pop over and have a look.

So now here we have my effort….


It is the Craft Works Cards Poinsettia Wreath. The pack contains everything that you need to make two wreaths.


The kit comes with plenty of  the organza ribbon but for this one I used some of the dotty grosgrain

They are very easy to make…


you get 2 rings with pre-punched holes


I sprayed it with ColorBox Artichoke Dye Ink. I think this is an amazing colour.


then add the ribbon


I made my flower into piles so that I new that I liked the way that I had mixed the layers up


shape the flowers with the Floral Punch Craft tools.


My first set of seven flowers I used a a6mm brad to hold them together.


shape the leaves and attach 2 together. I have added Pine Stickles.


The other flowers I stuck together with silicone glue and added a Card Candi on top. the candi is Felicity but I have covered them with Diamond Stickles to add some sparkle and I used Cranberry Stickles on the edge of some of the petals.


 I used the pine Stickles on the embellishment pins too, and used some Card Candi as berries.


I only used 6 flowers so I have made a small card with my spare flower.

Thanks for visiting, don’t forget to pop over to the Woodware Blog to see what the rest of the team have been up too.

See you soon

Woodware Challenge – Week 72 – Monochromatic – Red – Day 5

Today is going to be a very quick post as I am on holiday and I am off to pack for a trip, and due to the wonders of technology when this goes live I will be in Italy!

I have done a small card 5.5inch square, but it has a very big personality! I have used the Big Doodle Bauble that Jane designed and some of the Burgundy Recycled A4 card I stamped the bauble and then embossed it with Garnet Pearlustre Embossing Powder, if you have not tried the pearlustre powders then they are worth taking a look at, the have a very sophisticated finish a shimmer rather than being metallic. I then cut around the bauble and then edged it with copper embossing powder.  The background card was stamped with the 2 snowflakes from Jane’s Doodle Tree Clear Magic set, and again used the garnet embossing powder, and edged with the copper. I mounted the layers on a white card that I had given the same treatment as the layer.

The bauble was mounted on an Action Wobble.

I am really into over the top bows at the moment, this one is white 30mm organza which I have embossed with copper powder I tied the bow first, I love it! I love the way that the organza has crinkled when I have melted the powder!

Well I hope that you like my little red card with the big personality, when not pop over to see what the rest of the girls have been up to on the Woodware blog, see you soon thanks for popping in.

Woodware Challenge Richness of Red

I am last to post for the Woodware blog this week, and it probably was a silly theme that I chose for this week as most people will be finished with Christmas, but well I still have cards to write and parcels to send!

I have had fun with this card

Only one Santa but I think he must have more than one outfit, or he would be very wet and smelly as he makes his way around the world! I think that the most important thing that Santa brings is Love, Peace and Joy no matter what age you are he can deliver that for you as the spirit of giving and friendship.

The stamps come from Francoise Clear Magic set Santa’s Wardrobe I just stamped with Black Versafine ink and then colours with Sakura white souffle, I usually use Fluffy Stuff for Santa’s fur but thought that it would not be fluffy if it was still wet! The belt is a Sakura Identi Pen. I have stamped the images on 2 of the London papers. The washing line is made from Stampendous Champange Glass Glitter and Crafty Glue.

Why not pay a visit to the Woodware blog to see what the rest of the girls have been up to this week.
