Woodware Challenge Thanks.......

We will all have a few thanks you cards to do after Christmas and here is a quick and simple idea even the children can have a go.
I have used Stampendous retro alphabet set SSC055. Stamped in black and coloured with Sakura Stardust pens keeping to three colours. I have used a black Sakura Identipen to write the words very much on the pearlescent card background. Its easy to hand write messages with a pen, just draw simple lines to create the letters and add round dot to the end of each line, it transforms a simple letter into a fun letter.
Alphabet stamp sets are so useful, I tend to stamp the letters individually that way I can get my spacing better. If you can't stamp in a straight line then stamp the letters at jaunty angles like I have here.
Some Woodware paper flowers and gems just finish the card off.

Pleas can I have a lap?

For days now (weeks even!) I have been making card samples using the new spring and summer stamps which will be launched in February 2012.
My poor cat Elliot feels very left out as he does like a lap in the afternoons. Here he is waiting to get on my lap while I sit at my very untidy work space. It's not very easy stamping with a cat on your lap!
So if you see any stray ginger car hairs on my new samples, you know exactly where they came from!
He's so cute, just love him to bits.

Woodware Challenge Richness of red

My new peel offs, the same design as the stamps sets JGCL547 Our Special Day, JG546 On Your Wedding and JGCL549 Bubble Hearts. The peel offs come in gold, silver, white, black, red, pink and two shades of purple.

I love the shade of this red, the colour says 'romance' and 'love'! The shine of the peel off gives it a real sparkle to.

To fill the bubbles I have used Card Candi (Very Merry Silver) and green and red gems. I have stuck the Card Candi on to the card with silicone glue as I find that the neatest and easiest way.
I've made the base card, which is A6, with Woodware cream linen finish card. It was easy to make and quite quick, essential if you are making 150 of them!!!

Woodware Challenge Week 29 – Look what I did with my tin!

Here we have a round Woodware tin decorated with felt fusion and the ice cream images from my Ice Cream Parfait set JGCL507. The stamp set has been around for a couple of years now so it's good to go back and use things again.
Make good use of Woodware's chippie tags to add messages to the tin and to stick the ice cream images on. They are strong and with the thickness, make great 3D embellishments. I love to use lots of ribbons in contrasting colours tied in knots on the top of the tags.
The inside pages which come with the tin, I've decorated with patterned papers, again keeping to the colour theme of pinks, pale greens and yellows. The message stamped around the edge are on the stamp set.
Use it for writing down recipes for ice cream based desserts. It will make a fabulous present.

Woodware December Sketch Challenge.....

A minimalist but cute card for this weeks challenge. Using white shrink plastic (just love the stuff!) and my JGCL501 Melting Snowmen stamp set and a few coloured crayons to create the little detail on the snow line across my A6 tent fold card.
The greeting comes from JGCL515 Christmas Sentiments stamped in pale blue to match the background. Finish off with some stickles glitter glue in diamond.

Why not have a look to see what the rest of the girls on the DT have been up to and remember you can play along to pop to the Woodware Blog

Tags for Gifts

For my selection of hand cut tags I have used my Tree Quartet set JGCL550 and Stampendous embossing powder set Merlot EK06 to create the colours for the trees. I've spritzer the background with coloured ink, I've decanted some of the Memories Mists into the Woodware mist-it bottles. The edges of the tags have been inked with a contrasting pigment ink pad.

The other stamp is my Christmas Verses JGCL551 and they too have been embossed with the same powders as before. Decorate the trees with gems and glitter glue. Don't forget to leave a space to write who it's to and from.

The background paper to my photo Magenta paper MEMOR-217.
