I have a ribbon tree or four for you today
I saw this on pinterest, and think it is a perfect idea for an none traditional card, and of course the Woodware Gingham Ribbon
I cut a triangle (well I folded some thin card in half and chopped it, then I measured and made holes in a rectangle of card, and used my Woodware Pierce it Tool to make evenly space holes. This became my template.
Then I added the ribbon.
I tried various ways to do this.
But in the end I decided that cutting the lengths for each row war the easiest way to keep the ribbon even and not rip the holes too much by putting them under pressure.
I had cut my four cards for the front the same size as my template before I started.
I just used double-sided tape to attach the fronts, although 3D mounting tape would work really well.
I Frantaged my star buttons not sure what I would do without these Woodware buttons
this is the navy gingham
This is the berry gingham.
and the turquoise.
I hope that you like my none traditional Christmas cards, I liked creating this card using the bright ribbon making a very traditional Christmas image non traditional.

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.
Yes Tag Top Punch strikes again, perfect for this weeks posts.
I have used the Mixed Media card and a Brown Pigma Micron pen
Then added tartan Card Candi
With 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!
Here I am again with another card for traveling across the miles.
For this card I have used the Stampendous Folk Tree metal stencil and the double glitter technique. I seem to be rather fond of this technique at the moment you will find step by step photographs in this post Things that go Bump here is the Dreamweaver video again too
The double sided sticky sheet has been attached to some red card and then glittered with the Christmas Micro Glitter kit.
The word stamp is one of Jane Gill’s a Clear Magic set that has lots of long greetings Christmas Sentiments. I have stamped and embossed with Ruby Red powder. Stampendosu have a great range of coloured embossing powders why not give some colours a try? I have stamped on Mixed Media card and then edged the card with Fire Red Crafter’s I have layered it on Spring Green Recycled card, edged with Jungle Crafters. The corners were punched with the regular corner rounder.
I tied some red 15mm organza around the card.
I added a tiny border with paper from one of the 6 x 6 Perfect Print pads.
The layers have all been taped flat.
I like the way that the greeting goes over the ribbon, pretty and practical, it’s holding the ribbon in place!

Over on the Woodware Blog this week we have a sketch
here is the sketch
a very simple sketch for us, as usual, but I do like a sketch to get me thinking.
I have used Francoise’s Awesome 18 Clear Magic stamp. I have embossed it with Grape embossing powder from Stampendous.
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.
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.
I have layered the pieces on to paper from the 6 x 6 pad Lavender Mist and again stapled.
I could only find orange star buttons
but they look great Frantaged
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!
This week over on the Woodware blog it is sketch time again.
a very simple sketch this month and here is my take on it
I have cheated and used on of Francoise’s new word stamps. They will be in the shops very soon, but I don’t have a date at the moment, but I will share as soon as I can.
It makes a wonderful centre piece to a card when you have something important to say.
I am very pleased with my bow, the 40mm Cream Organza has shrivelled rather well with my heat tool, I have topped it with a button from the Coffee and Cream Assortment to top it off.
In order to follow the sketch I used Frantage embossing powder in Aged Green on two sides and Aged Copper on the other two. On the layer in the centre I reversed the colouring so that the green sits on top of the copper.
I hope that you can see the difference in the photograph. The stamp is the border from the Jumbo Hollyhock set. The paper is from Magenta and is called Autumn Leaves. I have mounted it on A4 Craft Card that I have folded and then cut to make a square card.
I taped some copy paper on my Hot Stuff mat so that I could mask the ends of the panel off, and get them to match (more or less)I just slid the panel in so that it was in the same place each time, and the corners are mitred.

Today is going to be a very quick post as I am on holiday and I am off to pack for a trip, and due to the wonders of technology when this goes live I will be in Italy!
I have done a small card 5.5inch square, but it has a very big personality! I have used the Big Doodle Bauble that Jane designed and some of the Burgundy Recycled A4 card I stamped the bauble and then embossed it with Garnet Pearlustre Embossing Powder, if you have not tried the pearlustre powders then they are worth taking a look at, the have a very sophisticated finish a shimmer rather than being metallic. I then cut around the bauble and then edged it with copper embossing powder. The background card was stamped with the 2 snowflakes from Jane’s Doodle Tree Clear Magic set, and again used the garnet embossing powder, and edged with the copper. I mounted the layers on a white card that I had given the same treatment as the layer.
The bauble was mounted on an Action Wobble.
I am really into over the top bows at the moment, this one is white 30mm organza which I have embossed with copper powder I tied the bow first, I love it! I love the way that the organza has crinkled when I have melted the powder!
Well I hope that you like my little red card with the big personality, when not pop over to see what the rest of the girls have been up to on the Woodware blog, see you soon thanks for popping in.
Over on the Woodware blog this week we are saying Good Luck with our cards, and here is my offering.
My card is A4 folded in half I have used Amethyst Recycled Card.
First I stamped with Define It a new Clear Snap Jumbo Rollagraph on the new white Stamping Card, then over stamped where I wanted too with Francoise Bunting Builder Clear Magic set.
I also stamped the bunting on some Magenta 12 x 12 paper called Spring Tapestry. I paper pieced the pink paper with the gingham side of London 5 and then drew in the cross hatching with a Sakura Purple Glaze Pen.
I used foam pads to raise up the bunting.
The ribbon is the Turquoise 7mm Gingham and the bling is Mark Richards light blue dots.
I am really pleased with my Good Luck I did not have a large good luck stamp and normally I don’t do writing but Francoise had given me a book called Zenspirations Letters & Patterning by Joanne Fink and it is brilliant! Well it may not be great by other people’s standards but I really feel I could get the hang of it.
