Friends Always

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

This is a simple little card where the Woodware Memories Stamp (back in stock on my website) does all the work for you. I inked up the centres of the stamps on the stamp (lol that sounds weird - hopefully you get what I mean) with Chic Pumpkin Colour Cloud applied using a Smoothie. I added Chic Aubergine Colour Cloud to the remainder of the stamp and stamped onto Coconut White Card.

Once the ink was dry, I inked around the edges with Chic Aubergine Colour Cloud. I distressed the edges with my scissors (I've just gor hold of a Woodware tool to do that! yay!) and inked a little more with Chic Aubergine Colour Cloud. I matted onto Black Card and then onto a Coconut White Card blank.

I stamped the sentiment from the Woodware Bubble Bloom : Curly Sue Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Black Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Sue Wilson's Stitched Flags and inked around the edges with Chic Aubergine. I cut the next sized die in the set out of Black Card. I tied a knot in a little piece of Black Satin Ribbon and popped it at the edge of my sentiment.

I finished my card off by adding a 5mm Black Pearl to each corner of my background.

  21. Hi Julia,
    I really enjoyed your woodware shows. I have been a fan of Woodware stamps for many years, the company has offered good value for money on their products. So pleased that a British based company is not going to disappear.
    Best wishes

  22. Great masculine card Julia. Lovely idea x

  23. Great card Julia. Thank you for sharing it. Really enjoyed your shows. I also like Woodware stamps and have quite a few. So glad that Creative Expressions have decided to stock them and they will not be disappearing. My granddaughter loves ice skating and I have just managed to get the Woodware ice skate stamp.
