Going to Seed? with Woodware

Hi everyone! well it's sunshine and showers here, washing out, washing in, in out! in out! give up and blog instead, good idea considering that the last shower was full of rather large hail stones but now I am sat in front of my PC of course the sun has come out, you tease you! don't think I will fall for that old trick go back out with the washing and I know what comes next, No Thank You I'm staying right here well at least until it's lunch time. Anyway here are the cards I made on Monday using the Woodware Clear Magic singles Going to Seed and also the Vive La Plume which I featured in last weeks cards (love that stamp!) loving this one tooooooo : ) think I might have to have them all lol!.................

I chose to use a black and whit theme on an 8x8 card base. I thought this would show off the stamp at it's best.
Stamped in Black Versafine ink and although you can't really see it I have highlighted some of the design with Ice Stickles glitter glue.
The die cuts are from Spellbinders.

6x6 card base this time
The background on this card is made using the Vive la Plume stamp and a leaf  stamp from a set by Inkadinkado Leaves Cling.
Distress Ink Pads
Weathered Wood, Antique Linen, Tea Dye.
Main image is stamped and embossed in black powder.

This time keeping it very simple I have stamped and embossed in white powder then added Black Soot to colour the background.
The corners have been stamped and embossed with white powder and black powder.

(click on a photo to enlarge)

Again I have added a little of the Stickles glitter glue which you can just about see in this photo, trust me they look much better in real life.
OK now it's lunch time and I'm off to make some pasta yum! yum! so I will see you all soon x

Vive La Plume - By Woodware

Good morning crafters hope you are all having a good weekend as I am especially since my trip to the dentist on Thursday which I have to say was not as terrifying as I had imagined it would be. He removed my broken tooth and I didn't feel a thing, now I have to decide whether to have the root removed or have a replacement fitted, other than that one small filling and I'm good to go so that's not bad considering I haven't seen a dentist for more than eighteen years plus! Well that's enough talk about that subject my next trip might not be so easy and the cost just don't get me started on that one!
Right down to the nitty gritty, cards for next week -
The image stamp of an elegant lady is from Stampendous but the one I really liked using is the background stamp from Woodware Clear Magic singles and is called Vive La Plume

Distress Inks used - Walnut Stain, Tea Dye, Victorian Velvet.

Versamark ink pad
Gold embossing powder
Quickie glue pen
Glue gun
Woodware crafty edger border punch

Distress Inks used - Victorian Velvet,
Picked Raspberry

 The swirl is from a set of stamps by Creative Expressions and the sentiment is from Woodware ( Going to seed )

Don't say I didn't warn you lol!
OK that's me done for today off to enjoy the rest of my weekend or should I say the next two hours at most before the beloved family gang show up wanting to be fed and watered after all it's Sunday again back to the slaving over a hot stove for me  : 0

A Little bit Sheena - with Berries

Hi!Everyone, I'm afraid this is going to be a rather short post today as I have a problem with a tooth which is something I have not experienced for such a long time so I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later! at this point I would normally LOL but it is too uncomfortable to do so, I will just have to think it in my head instead if that makes sense!!? It's a good job that I have finished the sample cards for next week and we will be using a stamp set by Sheena Douglass from her Paint Fusion range called Berries and also the Doily stamp from last week along with a Clear Magic stamp (Patchwork Butterfly by Woodware) which I have in my collection as I thought it just fitted in nicely...........
