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!

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
This week on the Woodware Blog we are looking at hobbies, my hobby is sewing, but my sister loves knitting and for her birthday I have made her an apron to wear when kntting when knitting with wool that is fluffy wool that casts on your clothes.
I only have a childs form so the view is a bit limited.
here is the whole thing.
First I sprayed the apron through the Dutch Doobadoo Fabric Mask Art. I used the Red Fabric Spray a quick effective way to get colour on fabric through a stencil or to dye a small piece of fabric.
For the other colour I used Crafter’s Fabric ink in Aruba
I used the Aruba in a few places.
I used the Stone Crafters on tissue paper and coloured the images with fabric pens.
I have used the new Zig Decoupage Glue this glue is great and makes it possible to put napkins and other papers on to fabric. The stamp is Jane’s Clear Magic Ball of Wool
This one is Knit One Purl One also designed by Jane.
Thanks for visiting see you soon!
This week on the Woodware Blog we are looking at cards for men,
This is one of Francoise’s Clear Magic stamps it is called Boys Toys
First I stamped and embossed with Bark Powder I have used the Bark Crafters ink pad becouae the powder is not opaque. I have used a large stencil brush and added colour from a 6 colour pigment ink pad.
The Woodware Just Words stamps have a brilliant selection of must have words these one are from a set that is perfect for the senior members of the family both male and female Great Grand, works well with other greeting stamps to truly personalize your cards.
I have scuffed the edges and added a touch of Rust Spoonful Frantage Kit then the tool brads
I have given the main card the Rust treatment too.
So well this week I have done a Kim and have a second card!
I am not sure which one I like best.
I have used Mixed Media card for both card and layers. The strip on the card has been made by running the Clear Scraps Gears Border through my Big Shot.
this time I have embossed the stamp in gold
coloured and layered on kraft card I like the Rope on a Bobbin it gives a nice masculine touch.
The words come from a set of Francoise’s called You Are the set has three unusual phrases. My favourite is “being unique is better than being perfect”
Thanks for visiting see you soon!
On the Woodware Blog this week we are looking at punches in apertures
but I have made my aperture on the inside. The greeting stamp is I Hope That… is a Woodware Just Words Stamp.
I have used the Super Duper Circle Punch on the card, first I folded the card in half and then put the punch on half way
The punches have a mark on the side so that it is easy to see the centre.
The spinner in the centre I used the Very Big Size Punch
For the flowers I have used the Multi Flower Punch, I have punched it from a 6 x 6 pad. On the edge I have embossed with the Purple Frantage
Powder Kit. The gems are from the Triple Wave.
I have used Grape Embossing Powder around the edge.
I attached a thread between the 2 circles of flowers, and then attached it in the fold of the card.
then position the card so that the punched piece does not protrude from the closed card. Then fold closed, with tape on the other side of the of the card the insert will be in the correct place.
On the outside I used the Inspire Flower Punch and a Super Circle Punch.
