Woodware – Thank You – take 2

This week on Woodware Witterings we are saying Thank You


and for this card I have used the Francoise Collection Distressed Thank You Background.


First I stamped on the Woodware Mixed Media card, it is a nice large stamp.


then I pressed Crafter’s ink pads in Sweet Pea, Blue Berry. and Aruba oon to my hot stuff mat. I used a water brush to pick up the ink and coloured all over with the various colours.


when the card was dry I wrapped some 15mm organza ribbon around it.


I just knotted some extra ribbon at the join.


The layered it on to some dark card.

I mounted it all on to a gate fold card, made from a piece of Mixed Media card cut down to A5 and the scored on the Groovy Board.

Woodware and Crafty Cardmakers – Non Traditional Christmas

Woodware are again sponsoring Crafty Cardmakers this week the theme is Non-Traditional Christmas the theme runs for two weeks on their blog.craftycardmakers2016

Don’t forget to check out the Crafty Cardmakers blog and play along with us all, we have a prize!


Well I think that this is pretty non-traditional, it is a theme that I was not sure about so this card is definitely not a robin or a fireplace.


First I lined up my Woodware Lolly Sticks on my very scruffy cutting mat.


I cut some Double sided sticky sheet to hold them together, and then stick them on the card when I was ready.


I hope that you can see may very elaborate Christmas tree


I have added the Mask-it Sheet


Then i have coloured my tree with Jungle Crafters ink


I have used a stencil brush and I love that you can see the wood texture.


I have glues on some Mini Light Bulbs, I have used Glossy Accents to attach them.


Then I have added the baubles, well some Stickles and some Silver Pearl Pen from Dutch Doobadoo.


I have made my wobbly line with a Sakura Micron Pen.


I have Frantaged my star button for the top of the tree.


The tree truck is just a chopped off lolly pop stick, coloured with Bark Crafters.

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the Woodware Witterings team have come up with for a Non Traditional Christmas week and why not play along at Crafty Cardmakers.

Woodware Sketch 55 – take 2

Here I am again with another take on this weeks sketch for Woodware Witterings, this time a very simple scrap book page, my favourite place to start the day. Only one of the photographs was taken in the evening.


here is the sketch


I cropped the photographs to 3 inch squares. I laid them out on two A4 sheets and printed it off.


My punch cuts 3 inch squares, I should have made the photographs slightly larger, so that they were easier to punch.


The layer is the next size up punch.


I cut a mask from a Woodware Mask-it sheet, it is slightly smaller than the photograph.


then I inked the circle with the Gypsy ColorBox Pigment pad and my Dreamweaver Stencil Brushes.


I inked the edges of the 12 x 12 card too.


I laid out the images and decided that it needed something more.


I drew lines on the card


and added ribbon.

Then realised my boo-boo! nine circles and so too many ribbons.


on a positive when I redid my ribbon I managed to weave them under and over!


Now I wonder if you would have noticed my mistake if I had not told you!

I am trying to think what to use my other page for!

Thanks for visiting see you soon.

Woodware Shaker Cards

This week on the Woodware blog we have been sharing Shaker cards I was inspired by Crafty Debs’  shaker card, which you can see on her blog later this week, and I always love to use my Dylusions Stamps so here we are.


I am really please with how it has turned out, now I just have to decide who to send it too!


To make my shaker section I used one of the new tag top punches, and the 2 inch circle punch


The Tag Top Punches have size guides to help you cut strips, the punch just does the top and so it can be as long as you want it to be.


First I stamped with purple Crafters and edged with Bark Crafters.

The stamp that I have used comes from the Dylusions set Basic Backgrounds.


Then I glued my acetate on to the back of the card, next the hard part…


add the strips of foam tape around the circle, (this is when I was thinking why didn’t I use a square punch?) It is important not to have any gaps, I have cut the strips of tape in half.

Then I added my Daddy Long Legs


and the words

Woodware – Sketch 50

This week on the Woodware blog we have a sketch


I thought that this was perfect for a scrapbook page


I have done an 8 x 8 page.


My only stamping is a border using Jane’s Dotty Flowers I have stamped them with ColorBox Raisin Pigment Ink, I love this colour.


I topped it with a cut down sheet of the Tartan 8 x 8 pad.


I cut my sunset into a circle.


and the picture of my daughter and Peggy the dog was punched with the Super Duper Circle Punch.


some layered journaling written with the Sakura Micron pen in Sepia.


for my flowers I used the tutorial that Kim shared last week and the tartan paper comes from the Tartan Pad and the Contemporary Tartan Pad. I used a brad to join the layers together then spray them with water.


I am really pleased with them. I have some step by step photographs of my first attempt here.


I used silicone glue to attach the flowers to my journaling.


I have framed it in an Ikea frame that is 9 x 9 so I inked the edges of the mount with a mix of the Mossy Mixed Media Pigment Ink and the Raisin Pigment Ink.

Thanks for visiting, why not pop over to the Woodware blog to see what the rest of the girls have been up too?

Woodware Friendship Take 2

Holiday and illness are taking their toll this week on the Woodware design team so another card from me.


and I have used another of the new Christmas stamps!


Francoise has three Christmas baubles in this release that are all really great, but this one I felt could be used for all sorts of occasions (it does have a top on it) This one is called Love Bauble


I have punched it with the bracket punch


Then coloured it with the ColorBox Stylus and a Doodle Bug Pigment Ink.


then edged it with the Wicked Black Archival ink that I had stamped with.


I stamped a second bauble and coloured it in the same way.


then cut out some hearts to cover the words that I didn’t want to show.


For the background I used the Dutch Doobadoo Faded Dots.


I have used the same inks to decorate the background.


and on the inside.


The greeting is from Francoise’s Little Messages Clear Magic set. This is a great little set of words.

There we are a simple but colourful card. Thanks for visiting, don’t forget to visit the Woodware blog to see what the rest of the girls have been up to!

Rustic Cards

This week on the Woodware blog the theme is Rustic Cards


All of the stamping was done with ColorBox Crafter’s Ink.


First I stamped a background with the ColorBox Mini Molding Mats i used some Tombow Glue to attach the stamp to an acrylic block, this means that it just pulls off when you are finished.


I have used 2 stamps and 2 colours of ink.


Then repeated them over the card.


next I punched out a square and stamped it with the background and a greeting from Jane’s Clear Magic In The Frame Ditti’s. The edges have been scuffed up with the Woodware tool.


Next I stamped the Stampedous Penpattern House and stamped it on some scrap paper and cut it apart to make masks.


This meant that I could stamp the sections of the house with different stamps.


I stitched the squares to make them look patchwork. In the corner I stamped the Woodware Just Words Post Card stamp.


and a bow on the ribbon.


and some gingham ribbon under the greeting.

All of the edges have been scruffed up, and then edged with ink.

Thanks for visiting pop over to see what the rest of the team have been up to this week on the Woodware blog.
