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.

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
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
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.

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
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.
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
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
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
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?
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
I have punched it with the
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
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

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.
gingham ribbon under the greeting.
All of the edges have been scruffed up, and then edged with ink.
