Woodware Craft Collection - new - Noel Reindeer




I used another piece of the background paper that I made with the Stampendous Creative Palette and used with the Curly Christmas stamp I posted yesterday.  The pattern shows more on the reindeer that I paper pieced with Francoise Read's new Noel Reindeer stamp.



The Happy Christmas greeting is included with the Noel Reindeer stamp and polka dot paper from one of the new paper pads.  The star button adds an embellishment along with some crystal self adhesive gems.


Now, if you think we are starting Christmas early, one of the new stamps is for Easter!  You can't get much more ahead in your card making than this!  



I used another piece of the same background paper I made with the Creative Palette and stamped the bunny, the papers you make certainly go a long way for paper piecing.  


The swirly background paper (that matches the bunny in real life) is from the new paper pack Perfect Prints Stack Packs - Fresh - MSP228R - 15 x 15cm - 30 Assorted SheetsAt £1.99 per pack they are really good value! 

If you think that bunny looks a bit wonky, he is, I used a wobble action fixing on the back of the panel so it wobbles, a great idea for any children cards, they will love it. Woodware - Action Wobble (12) - AW01

Francoise has also designed some lovely cute images for young children that I'll show another time.

Thanks for visiting, and have a great Sunday!

Curly Christmas


Woodware Curly Christmas Clear Magic Single - FRS271


I paper pieced this new stamp design by Francoise Read with a background paper I made with the Creative Palette as an alternative to colouring it all with pens or pencils.

I pulled a few A4 sheets from the Creative Palette that I have used with a number of cards I made with the new Woodware Craft Collection stamps that have just been released.

I used Tombow pens to add colour to the holly, berries, stars and the heart.

The polka dot paper  background paper panel is from one of the new paper packs, it's nice to be able to mix and match your own backgrounds papers with pre-printed papers.

The white polka dot ribbon was made using the Brilliant Bowmaker.

The small words are included with the main stamp.

I hope you are enjoying the heatwave, isn't it nice to have proper British summer weather!

New - Woodware Stamp Collection - another Winter Trees card


Here is another card I made for the new Woodware Craft Collection catalogue with the Winter Trees stamps designed by Francoise Read.

I created the background using the Stampendous Creative Palette and embossed the trees with Stampendous detail white embossing powder.  I added a some Stampendous chunky white embossing powder before heating it all.  I pinched some of the chunky powder in my fingers and let it drop randomly onto the card before heating from underneath.  The chunky powder expands when heated to create a snowy effect.

The new stamps are available now, you can find them on our website HERE

Thanks for visiting!

Sneaky Peeks for The Great British Craft Festival - North


Following on from yesterday's post here are a few sneaky peeks that Sarah Anderson has been working on for the Great British Craft Festival - North, next weekend at the Bolton Arena.  
























The card above features Jane's Cow Parsley Stamp by Woodware Craft Collection.  Sarah has used graphic 45 ink pads on the creative palette.



This is a mop up page from paint on the creative palette, Sarah has added doodling to Jane Gill's Georgina flower stamp.  The wording on both cards is Double Birthdays designed by Francoise Read for Woodware Craft Collection.

These are gorgeous Sarah!!!  I will show more another time but if you'd like to visit Sarah's blog to read more about her experimentation with the Creative Palette, visit her blog HERE

We have added a lot of new products to our website, you will find them HERE.  At the time of writing there are still photos to add, but there is a lot to see there already.

Thank you for visiting!
