Woodware challenge - Christmas collage

Here's my hanging card made from a hand cut heart shape from packaging
card and covered in strips of paper.
I used my rocket tree stamp as my inspiration to cut card shapes
to form the Christmas tree.
Layer almost anything you want from a rosette created with a
score board to greeting, gems and ribbon.
The heart is about 205mm across and 190mm high.

Woodware challenge - White Christmas

I don't think my photo does this card justice! In the flesh it looks very pretty.
I've stamped and used white embossing powder the background words from
Woodware stamp JGS 353 Festive Verse onto white linen card.
I've made a triangle shape from plain white card. Stuck a tree trunk onto it and then rummaged through my ribbon and gems boxes for all things white to stick across the shape.
All the products used here are from Woodware.
The card is 148mm square.

Woodware challenge - Traditional Christmas

For todays card I've used Woodware stamp JGS189 Sprig of Holly.
Stamp and clear emboss the image onto red, green and yellow card and cut each section out.
The scallop and plain circles are die cut and are about 41/4" wide. I've cut the plain circle with deckle scissors to make it looked smaller so you can see more of the scallop circle!
The greeting is from Woodware stamp JGS353 Festive Verse.

Woodware challenge - Christmas decoration

I had planed to show you a lovely glass bauble I had decorated with permanent pens, liquid pearls and punched snowflakes but then I dropped it while taking the photo! It was really pretty.

So instead I made a punched paper bauble.

The finished bauble, its about 4" across.
Using the new Woodware crafty Edger and
cassette that comes with it.
Punch four strips from a 12" piece of scrapbook card.
Cut four 1cm wide strips of the same card.
I cut extra just in case!
Punch a snowflake from same card.
Mark the centre or each strip and make a hole.
Push the brad through the snowflake and make a cross
with the strips, pushing the brad through the holes.
Add the other strips, alternating the punched and plain.
When you turn it over you see the snowflake and brad.
The inside of the bauble showing the secured brad.
Bring up the other ends, overlap and stick with PVA glue. 
All the ends are now stuck to form the bauble shape.
You can always stick another snowflake over this end.
The top of the bauble.
Add some cord to hang the bauble, I wrapped mine under
the brad and wound it round a couple of time.s
Decorate with more punched snowflakes around the bauble.

Woodware challenge - sketch 38

Woodware have a sketch to play with this week

This is a 7" x 5" card. I've used Woodware white linen card for the
background, oval and sentiment.
The trees are from JGS346 Winter Trees set of stamps. They are embossed with crystal embossing powder over black ink and cut out.
Punch or die cut the oval and stick the trees flat except one which can be on foam pads. Add some extra glitter glue for a snowy effect.
The music ribbon is from Woodware and is self adhesive.

Woodware challenge - Christmas is coming...

Here's a pretty quick card that's flat and easy to post!
White card is stamped with black Versafine and embossed with clear the treemendous tree from JGS349. Then taking your brayer and the Caribbean Sea Kaleodacolor ink pad, brayer the ink all over the card. Using thin, cheap bleach and a nylon paint brush, add bleach to parts you want white. Here I've painted it onto the circles, made swirls in the heart and draw a frame around the image.
Stamp the greeting around the edge and finish with glitter glue.
