This week we are saying Good Luck on the Woodware Witterings
I have used the Postal Collage (FRS344) Clear Magic stamp from the Francoise Collection and the Happy Travels from the Just Words Collection.
First I stamped out the a black image
then I distressed it with Crafter’s Ink pads Canyon and Desert Sand.
I made a background with the same colours of Crafters and added some Bar, on the Woodware Mixed Media Card.
They look great on the Ribbed Recycled Card
For my Happy Travels stamp I punched some card from the Tag Top Punch the one with the straight shoulders the best thing about these punches is that you can make your tags in a variety of sizes and they can be double ended!
For the Good Luck I have used the Dreamweaver Dual Alphabet and cut it from the 8 x 8 Tartan Pads one sheet from each pad.
Thanks for visiting and don’t forget to pop over to Woodware Witterings to see what the rest of the girls have been up to.

This week on Woodware Witterings we are looking at Colour Blocking simply using blocks of colour on your card.
I have sort of cheated and not used single colours but I thought that my 8 x 8 Contemporary Tartan Pad would be perfect for this.
The idea I got from a tutorial on Split Coast Stampers called star burst background if you follow the link you will find the tutorial. Cut strips of the card or paper that you want to use mine ranged between 1 and 2 inches. then cut them in half on the diagonal. The ends get trimmed and hidden so they do not have to be perfect. I have used black card to stick my tartan strips to, leave spaces between the strips, and then trim the card so that it doesn’t have a black border. I then layered it on white and black card. I have used the 12 x 12 Textura Card.
I wanted something pearly so I have used a card cut from the Stampendous Fitted Frames and embossed it all over with Stampendous Ice Blue Pearl Embossing Powder and then stamped the words
and embossed with Wild Plum powder. The stamp is one from the Francoise Collection You Are Clear Magic stamp.
I love the way that the front has turned out.
I have used my Brilliant Bowmaker with my black twine.
I have made to multi bows that are the same size, don’t think I could manage that with out this handy little tool.
The Happy Birthday is a Woodware Just Words stamp I have edges the layers with the same 2 embossing powders.
I have made it an easel card, I love this they look so effective with out very much work! and here is the inside.

Woodware is again sponsoring the challenge at Crafty Cardmakers
This week the theme is Shabby Chic or distressed, so it should be a fun week, why not join in with us you can play along on the Crafty Cardmaker blog the challenge is open for two weeks.
For my card I have used the Clear Magic Three Houses designed by Jane Gill
yes it is just 3 houses, but I go a bit carried away. The card is 12 x 6 inches I used the black and white Textura Card.
I have paper pieced the houses with papers from the Perfect Prints 6 x 6 pad Lavender Mist.
then I fussy cut the houses, and inked the edges with a Blue Dye ink and a stencil brush.
don’t they look pretty?
then I inked the white layer and scuffed the edges with the Woodware scuffer.
then got the sewing machine out and stitched it with wobbly stitches. On my machine I can vary the length of the stitch as a sew and it is fun to do that , and to make the lines wobble.
then I added the houses to the card
I attached them from either end so that the pale one in the middle stands out.
I hope you like my card as much as I do, thanks for visiting, you can see what the rest of the girls have been up to over on Woodware Witterings

This week on the Woodware blog we are looking at flowers,
I have made some girlie bunting, but I have used Chippies for my bunting, I think that this would be good for a 21st birthday.
I have used the Handbag Chippies and stamped them with Jane’s Clear Magic Ranunculus then water coloured them with inks.
These two have been stamped with the Stampendous Perfectly Clear Fronds set.
The 21 is the number chippies and I have
Coloured them with Mixed Media pigment ink in Wisteria and then Frantaged them with a mix of Chunky White powder and a selection of bits from my mix jar, with extra shaved ice!
I stamped the Ranunculus on card die cut with the fitted frame dies. then coloured with the wisteria pad.
once I had finished I decided that the background had to be darker so that the numbers stood out so I coloured it all with a stencil brush.
I think that it looks effective layered on the green card.
I have edged all of the handbags with green ink.
The hardest part of the project was getting the ribbon to be the same length between the bags!
I have used a touch of double sided tape and jump ring I also knotted the ribbon so that it would not go through the jump ring.

This week on Woodware Witterings we are looking at Cats and Dogs, I thought that it was a good reason to do a scrap book page with my dog.
This is Peggy, and the words sum her up perfectly
yes I know she looks angelic but she certainly has her moments! I love the Dylusions stamps from Dyan Reaveley this one is from the Don’t Hold Back set, they are great for scrap-book pages and of course art journals which are Dyan’s speciality.
The other stamp set that I have used is Huge Dog the Clear Magic set from the Francoise Collection. I have stamped the dog on white card with black powder and twice in white powder on black card. Then I Zentangled the letters with the Sakura White Gelly Roll and a Black Sakura Micron pen on the white card.
I even used my craft knife to cut out the centres of the d and g
I then used foam pads to add depth to the page.
The dogs head and paws are from the same set.
I used a watermark pad and black powder on the black card to make the paws just visible.
I layered the pieces on some white card then started at the top and placed the two photographs and the dog layer down the 12 x 12 page.

The theme this week on Woodware Witterings is Happy Days, and really one of the happiest days on our lives is often our wedding day, once we are relaxed enough to enjoy our selves!
I have used The Bride and Groom designed by Francoise Read. It is a good sized stamp that will make a good big card. My card it 7 x 7 inches, but I have cut it from a sheet of Textura white 12 x 12 card.
I folded the front so that it is 5 inches and the back 7 inches.
I used my circle cutter to get a 5.75 inch circle. I have used Grape embossing powder around the edges, I love using embossing powder for the texture and the shine. The card is from the Glamour Textura Card Stock 6 x 6 pad
the bride and groom have been embossed in Grape too and highlighted with Stickles.
The words are from Jane’s Hedgerow Clear Magic stamp. I have used my Tag Top punch and then rounded the corners of my strips with the regular corner rounder.
The heart is one of the small metal ones and I have Frantaged it with powders from the Purple Encrusted Jewel Kit.
I added a bow at the other end with 15mm organza
and there we are a card for a very happy day!
