Woodware Shaker Cards

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.

18

I am really please with how it has turned out, now I just have to decide who to send it too!

16

To make my shaker section I used one of the new tag top punches, and the 2 inch circle punch

17

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.

12

First I stamped with purple Crafters and edged with Bark Crafters.

The stamp that I have used comes from the Dylusions set Basic Backgrounds.

15

Then I glued my acetate on to the back of the card, next the hard part…

14

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

Woodware – Hobbies

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.

8

I only have a childs form so the view is a bit limited.

6

here is the whole thing.

2

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.

3

For the other colour I used Crafter’s Fabric ink in Aruba

4

I used the Aruba in a few places.

5

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

9

This one is Knit One Purl One also designed by Jane.

Woodware – Boys Will Be Boys

This week on the Woodware Blog we are looking at cards for men,

5

This is one of Francoise’s Clear Magic stamps it is called Boys Toys

1

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.

3

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.

6

I have scuffed the edges and added a touch of Rust Spoonful Frantage Kit then the tool brads

2

I have given the main card the Rust treatment too.

4

So well this week I have done a Kim and have a second card!

10

I am not sure which one I like best.

9

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.

7

this time I have embossed the stamp in gold

8

coloured and layered on kraft card I like the Rope on a Bobbin it gives a nice masculine touch.

11

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”

Woodware – Apertures and Punches

On the Woodware Blog this week we are looking at punches in apertures

11

but I have made my aperture on the inside. The greeting stamp is I Hope That… is a Woodware Just Words Stamp.

1

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

3

The punches have a mark on the side so that it is easy to see the centre.

6

The spinner in the centre I used the Very Big Size Punch

7

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.

5

I have used Grape Embossing Powder around the edge.

8

I attached a thread between the 2 circles of flowers, and then attached it in the fold of the card.

10

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.

12

On the outside I used the Inspire Flower Punch and a Super Circle Punch.

Woodware’s Clear Magic Bubble Blooms by Jane

This week on the Woodware blog we are looking at Jane’s Bubble stamps they are mainly flowers but not all, today I have used a flower

7

This is Curly Sue I have used her before at the end of last year for white embossing, but no embossing this time.

1

This time I have stamped Sue on a linen square the square is sealed at the edges which makes it easy to use. I have stamped with Evergreen Crafters I heat set it with my heat tool before carrying on.

2

next steep was to stitch the bubbles

3

I used a variation of Rhodes Stitch, well it started off as Rhodes stitch.

4

I used a water brush and the Evergreen pad to colour the leaves. Then trimmed and frayed the fabric. I ironed to heat set and get the creases out.

5

I have used the same stamp to decorate the base card.

6

and my Tag Top punch for the greeting, just for a change! I have also used my Scruffer and edged with ink.

9

I have finished off with some Ric-rac and gingham ribbon.

here is Jane’s video on using Card Candi with the Bubble Stamps

Thanks for visiting see you soon, don’t forget to check what the rest of the girls have been up to on Woodware Witterings.

Woodware Sketch 52

Over on the Woodware Blog this week we have a sketch

8

here is the  sketch

52-April_2016

a very simple sketch for us, as usual, but I do like a sketch to get me thinking.

3

I have used Francoise’s Awesome 18 Clear Magic stamp. I have embossed it with Grape embossing powder from Stampendous.

4

I also stamped the  18 on some textura card from the great 6 x 6 pads I love the texture under the stamping, this time I used the really pretty Ice Blue, which is a pearly metallic Frantage powder. Then punched it with the Huge Oval punch.

5

The greeting comes from the same stamp I have mounted it on some white card that I have punched with the fantastic (my favourite product at the moment, you may have noticed) Tag Top Punch I used the Woodware Mini Stapler to attach the ribbon, which I have zapped with my heat tool.

6

I have layered the pieces on to paper from the 6 x 6 pad Lavender Mist and again stapled.

1

I could only find orange star buttons

2

but they look great Frantaged

7

all of my papers have been given a scuff up with the Woodware Edger.

I am rather pleased with the finished results, I hope that you like it too, don’t forget to pop over too see what the rest of the girls have been up too on the Woodware Blog, thanks for visiting see you soon!

Woodware and Crafty Cardmakers – 1, 2, 3.

Woodware are once again sponsoring and playing along with Crafty Cardmakers

CraftyCardMakers2016Header

The theme for the week is – 1 2 3

that is one stamped image, 2 papers and 3 different embellishments

here is my 1, 2, 3, card

1

Because I usually do much more minimal cards, I found this a really tricky challenge

For my 1 image I have used Relax a Clear Magic stamp designed by Francoise.

2

I stamped it three times (hope that is okay for one image), I have used Lettuce, Moss and Ruby Red embossing powders. The card is textured Textura Card Stock available in black and white. I liked the way that it has not stamped perfectly.

3

I chopped them up and added colour with a Dreamweaver stencil brush.

6

My 2 papers are both from the Perfect Prints 6 x 6 pad Rouge

5

So then we have 3 different embellishments. First I have Frantaged a Jumbo Frame Brad I have attached it to a scalloped oval punched shape. Embellishment number 2 is the dotty ribbon

4

My 3rd embellishment is a Chippie Hearts and Flourishes I have Frantaged this too, but this time in an electric frying pan! I got my electric frying pan after a trip to Samuel Taylors in Leeds with Fran from Stampendous, it is the first time that I have played with it, but I have a video from Fran that will introduce you to the possibilities…

Well next time I will be more adventurous with my hot pan!
