Woodware – Summer Birthday

Woodware are looking at Summer Birthday cards this week and I have used a Dutch Doobadoo Card Art Present template to make a gift pocket.


I have used a mixture of Stampendous and Woodware stamps to decorate it.


This is the inside section

I have added the the double sided Copenhagen 1 paper I then used a mask cut from the Stampendous Fitted Frames and inked the card.


I then used a mask cut from the Stampendous Fitted Frames and inked the card.


I have added the the double sided Copenhagen 1 paper


I have stamped and embossed the flowers from the Ranunculus Clear Magic stamp designed by Jane Gill.


I have cut the pocket for the outside in green card and then embossed the Ranunculus Clear Magic flower again.


I have decorate it with the Stampendous Cling Rubber Fairy Aviary stamp and the words come from the Francoise Collection You Are Clear Magic stamp set.


The card just pops into the pocket. Here is agreat little video from Dutch Doobadoo to show you much more with this template.

Thanks for visiting see you soon!

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!

Woodware Challenge – Chosen by Kim – Window Cards

This week the Woodware challenge has been chosen by Kim.

Kim has chosen for us the theme of Window Cards the idea for it came from Technique Time Tuesday you will find a great tutorial if you follow the link.

this was fun to do, and I sort of got carried away, but they were very quick cards to make.


I have used Francoise’s Clear Magic Tiddler Sometimes for the greeting.


First I used Dylusions paint in London Blue I applied it with the Baby Wipe method here is a video with Dyan demonstrating it


I used the Dutch Doobadoo Art Bubbles and more of the blue paint.


Then I added some Post Box Red paint.


I cut the front of the card with the Dreamweaver Nesting Ovals Die and stamped it.


I cut another oval and stampeded it too then added some of the blue paint with the same stencil


I closed the card and attached the oval through the hole so that the placement was correct.


the oval that I cut from the card was perfect on a plain card.

The border stamps on both cards come from the Dylusions stamp set Bordering on the Edge.


I liked the method so much that I made another card.


this stencil is the Dutch Doobadoo Mask art Metal 2


I was a bit messy with the paint.


but it was great when I rubbed more over with a Woodware Wipe.


I die cut the Dreamweaver Nesting Frames and stamped it with some words from the Didn’t Hold Back cling rubber Dylusions set.


I love this stamp from the Escape set I have added Glossy Accents to the glasses.

I hope that you like my window cards, and that you have time to take a look at what the rest of the girls have been up too.
