Woodware – Thank You – take 2

This week on Woodware Witterings we are saying Thank You


and for this card I have used the Francoise Collection Distressed Thank You Background.


First I stamped on the Woodware Mixed Media card, it is a nice large stamp.


then I pressed Crafter’s ink pads in Sweet Pea, Blue Berry. and Aruba oon to my hot stuff mat. I used a water brush to pick up the ink and coloured all over with the various colours.


when the card was dry I wrapped some 15mm organza ribbon around it.


I just knotted some extra ribbon at the join.


The layered it on to some dark card.

I mounted it all on to a gate fold card, made from a piece of Mixed Media card cut down to A5 and the scored on the Groovy Board.

Woodware – Sketch 57 – Take 2

I am back again with another take on this weeks sketch over on Woodware Witterings


This is the Francoise Collection Clear Magic stamp Flowering Bike


I have simply stamped with Bark Crafters ink from ClearSnap I have stamped on A4 Cream Linen card


I stamped it again on some pre-cut plain cream card and some pink.


Then I put the layers together.


I used my Tombow Glue stick so that I can move the pieces around to get them perfectly lined up, well I hope that they are perfectly lined up!


I then coloured in with a mixture of Sakura Water colour pencils and my Stardust gel pens.


the colours are just slightly darker on the pink card, but you can still see them.


I used Sakura Micron pen to add the faux stitching.


not a bad take on the sketch even if I say so myself…

I stamped with the Bark Crafters pad on the ribbon and remembered to attach it around the pink panel before attaching it to the card!

Woodware – Sketch 57

This week on Woodware Witterings we have a sketch


and here is my first take of the week on it


I have used one of Jane Gill’s popular Clear Magic Bubble Bloom stamps this one is called Lilly and is from the July 2016 release.


First I stamped and embossed in silver, and then coloured the petals with Koi Brush Pens, place my foam pads where I planned to put the Card Candi and then started adding the Mark Richards 5mm Pearls.


I realised that I didn’t like the blue of the leaves, so I added another colour on top, you can see the aqua colour on its own too. I rather like the 2 tone effect on the leaves.


The Card Candi is Time Flies and I added Glossy Accents to the aqua bubbles. the tiny bubbles have been Stickled with Aqua.


The papers are Time Flies too, I hope that you can see that I have sprayed the background paper with the blue colour from the Rangers Dylusions Mica Sprays, it is very subtile but lovely, of course it shows up more on dark papers.


I have embossed in silver around all of the layers.


I made a mistake when I was putting the card together and had trouble added the ribbon, it should have been added before I put the layers together!


I stamped and embossed the greeting from the same stamp set on the Time Flies paper, and used the Tag Top punch.

Quick Christmas Cards…time is running out! – take 2

Here I have another quick card for you, this time very plain blue and silver


I love this Clear Magic stamp designed by Jane Snowflake Flower so quick to use, not that it has to be, it could be a much more time-consuming design of card.


I stamped it on the Mid Blue Recycled Card and trimmed it down. I made it into a small card 12cm square.


The greeting comes with the flower, I have stamped it on the same card and then coloured around the edges with the Purple Crafters Ink. I just run the card gently through the ink pad. It is enough to give the illusion of another layer and very quick!


I small piece of ribbon under the greeting and around the panel finished the card off.

Quick Christmas Cards…time is running out!

Here I have a very quick card thanks to the great stamp from the Francoise Collection


The Francoise Collection Clear Magic  stamp is Christmas Collage


First it was stamped in black on the Woodware Water Colour Card, I printed the ink pad on to my Hot Stuff Mat and picked up the colour with my water brush. The ink is ColorBox Crafter’s in Blueberry and Aruba.


I ripped the paper, the edges were water coloured too.


The greeting comes from the Stampendous Perfectly Clear set ‘Tis the Season a great set of Christmas words.

I used the Woodware paper scruffer around the edges of the stamped image and then rubbed it along the Blueberry Pad. I bled the ink out with my water brush.


I taped the organza ribbon on the back of the card, and tied it off at the end. I have used the Water Colour card to mount on to

definitely a very quick card, I hope that you like it!

Extra Christmas Card from the Leftovers

Sometime these are my favourite cards, when you have bits lying about because you have not tidied up before starting again, or is that just me?


When I was doing the post for Mens Christmas cards I had the Graffiti Christmas printed and just lying there. When I cut my Dreamweaver Nested Stockings for my Sketch post I had some extra stockings cut!


I just added a row of brads to hang my stockings and I rather like this card too.


I have added holly leaves to this one the leaves come from a very very old stamp set from the Franocise Collection Wired For Christmas.


This I think is my favourite with the none traditional feel of the colour it is fun and I do live those mini light bulbs from Woodware.


This on is just a funny shape, and I had not used my Tag Top Punch for a least a week!


Hope you like my cards with extra bits today!
