This week Woodware Witterings we are looking at tags for your wonderful Christmas pressies
I am rather pleased with these tags, very simple and inspired by a card on Pinterest that had used buttons.
Tag Top Punch strikes again, perfect for this weeks posts.
I have used the Mixed Media card and a
Brown Pigma Micron pen
tartan Card Candi
Tartan Ribbon to finish off.
Simple but effective, I am going to wrap the parcels in brown paper and add some tartan ribbon.
Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the team get up too on
Woodware Witterings thanks for visiting see you soon!
I am back with another take on this weeks sketch
Large Snowman Bauble from the Francoise Collection.
I have just stamped him in black and cut him at a slightly jaunty angle. He has been layer on some of the
Amethyst Recycled Card.
I stamped twice more and cut out the scarf, the carrot nose and the hat. I have coloured with
Sakura Koi Brush Pens.
I punched out the
snowflakes and covered them with Stickles, and I then used Stickles as the glue, the fine nib makes it easy to apply and if it squeezes out from underneath it is pretty!
I punched the green tag and the mini heart and star, I coloured the card before punching so that it was the same colour as the rest of the card.
I punched the
Contemporary Tartan tags and attached them so they look as if they are swinging.
a reminder of the sketch.
Thanks for visiting see you soon!
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 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?
I was so impressed with the flowers that Kim and Debbie made last week that I have been having a go, so this is the results of my attempts at Kim’s.
this was my first attempt. Then ink the edges, most things look better with inked edges.
I use an old foam stamp free from a magazine years ago when I want to make a hole in something thick like this complete with a map pin.
stores in a drawer just like this.
then add a
spray with water and scrunch.
Repeat with other papers.
not sure where these are going yet, but I think that I will have fun with all of my scrap papers for a while….
This week over on the Woodware blog the theme has been chosen by
Pam the Pampered Stamper it is great that Pam was able to be back with us this week as she continues to recover from her car smash.
I often use look for Pinsperation it is a wonderful way to spend an evening! The
house canvas that I did a couple of weeks ago when we were doing master boards started with an image on Pinterest, but there they were fabric brooches, you will find them on my Buttons Board.
Here is where I found it
Found on thepaintbrushgoesspottie.blogspot.com
I have made it much simpler
I am pleased with my version.
I have used four punches. The
green daisy, square in the yellow and blue size. and a blue circle.
the circles I punched from
Helsinki 1 all 25 of them, the edges of the circles I coloured on both sides with Mossy Mix’d Media inks by Clearsnap.
the blue square I punched from card to use as a template to fold the circle around.
to give me this shape.
for the centres i punched 25 white squares and ink the edges with the same colour.
The daisy punch I punched from card and inked with
Crafters Canyon ink, my favourite colour, well this week.
I painted the canvas with some acrylic paint that I mixed from
PPA Glue and Gold Finch Metallic F/x
I hope that in this photograph you can see the shimmer on the canvas.
I used my Woodware
Very Useful Ruler to line up the pieces on the canvas. I alternated the paper and added just buttons to some of the shapes and flowers and buttons to some.
I hope that you like my finished piece, thanks for visiting!
This week on the Woodware blog we are looking at a sketch
So here is my take on the sketch
I have used on of the four images from Francoise’s
Wonderful Friend stamp
I think these flowers are rather fun. I used the
Colorbox Wicked Black ink pad and edged the shape with ink.
I have used the same ink to stamp Jane’s
Dorothy Flower and then punched out with a circle punch.
I stamped Dorothy around the edges and then stamped
Happy Birthday from the Just Words range. (sorry about the blurry photo)
I coloured the image with a
Sakura Glaze pen and then added the Sakura Clear Sparkle pen.
Thanks for visiting, why not pop over to to the
Woodware Blog to see what the rest of the team have come up with.
This week on the Woodware blog we are looking at the joy of punches. Lots of people don’t bother with punches as they have so many dies, but punches are so fast to use they are brilliant!
I have made a little box from a
Splitcoast Stampers Tutorial
For inside the box I have made some fridge magnets
I got a bit carried away, but it will make a nice gift.
I have punched the Woodware Magnetic sheets with the Super Duper
Evening Dress and Evening Dress 1 then the fun begins!
I used the Dreamweaver
Petals Background stencil and sprayed through it with ColorBox Spearmint Dye Ink Spray. Then I placed another card over the top of the stencil and got the reverse pattern.
Here are two of the dresses punched out of the sprayed card and the reverse piece.
It was fun using card that was decorated in various ways.
I used the
Alphabet Crystal Stickers and the Multi Coloured Crystals.
it was fun going through my stash of crystals.
I have used silver embossing on some of them and the
cream Self adhesive lace.
These were fun to make!
I have used a Dreamweaver Stencil
Triangle Weave on the box.
this is my box opened out, I have only decorated the front and the flap. I have also used the
Ribbon Border Dots punch on the edge of the flap.
I hope that you like my punched magnets, I am looking forward to seeing the rest of the punch creations from the
This week on Woodware we have a sketch
A very simple sketch this month. and here is my take on it.
I have done a DL shaped card. I have used the Dreamweaver
Zen Flower Stencil.
I started with an A5 piece of card and stenciled with
Aruba Crafter’s ink most of the Zen Flower on it. I had punched out the Scalloped Oval first and used some Sakura Quickie Glue as a temporary glue and attached the punched out piece to the card and stencilled over the top of the 2 pieces. I then trimmed the card so that it fitted exactly on a DL card
translucent embossing paste on the punched section and set it aside to dry. After it was dry I used a stencil brush and added Sweet Pea Crafters with a Stencil Brush. I love the contrast of textures that you get with the paste making the centre shinny.
I inked the edges with the Aruba ink and added one of the strips that I had cut off .
I punched a Very Big size
scalloped oval and stamped a greeting from the Stampendous Perfectly Clear set You Are So Tweet.
I punched out some daisies in Big, Large and mini sizes of
Daisy Flower Punch. I left the min one white and coloured the others to match the colours of the card.
