Woodware Design Team Challenge - Mercart Metal

Hello everybody it is Dorothy posting today, we have locked Francoise up, and she is not getting out until the new Woodware Catalogue is done and dusted and off to the printers! So here goes.....

Of course it had to be a Francoise designed stamp, and with sport in the news all the time at the moment my thoughts turned to The Number One Champ Clear Magic set.

I have used Mercart Metal to make a bronze, silver and gold medal. Of course the silver is just the back of the bronze! I used the green 1" circle punch and then ran the double ended decorative wheel over the punched shape. I used the morse code end across the middle and then the horizontal wheel around the edge.

The greeting is  mounted on red and blue gingham ribbon.

Hopefully Francoise will be back with you next week if not well I will be back! Why not pop over and see what the rest of the girls have been up to on the Woodware Blog?

Woodware Design Team Challenge - Purple and Gold

I'm probably going to get told off for cheating!... this is my interpretation of gold and purple.... the gold being orange and there is some purple there... lol

The set I have used is one of my favourites from the Spring release:
FRCL211 Heart and Home

The images are very simple and solid so they work beautifully with the Kaleidacolor ink pads.

For this card I have used the 'Spectrum' ink pad. The pad itself looks very bright but when stamped out and on cream card the colours are more muted.
I've used pages from an old book bought from Oxfam. The heart is a Woodware punch. As usual I have added some Mark Richards 'Nailheads' for some subtle bling.

Hope you've enjoyed this card. Do pop along to the Woodware Blog for more ideas using gold and purple.

Woodware Design team challenge - Teachers Gifts

 For this week's challenge I have made a special card 'for the best teacher' and to say thank you for all the hard work and help.

I use to be a teacher and cards and gifts... even just a thank you were all much appreciated!

I have used two elements from this set;
FRCL160 School Tots

The tab on the side of the card was made using a woodware punch and I have added Mark Richard gold 'Nailheads'. The tag is also made using another Woodware punch which actually punches three different sized tags. I've used some markers for the colouring and a white Sakura pen for the highlights.

If you have enjoyed my idea why not pop along to the Woodware blog for other designs from the team.

Woodware Design Team Challenge - Sketch

Instead of using the rectangle on the sketch I have added my chubby kitty!

FRS113 Chubby Kitty

I thought it would be fun to do pinks and add some bling...

I've used two Woodware punches for the fish and paw print. Really useful with this stamp
The greeting is included with the stamp. So a purrrrfect card for a cat lover or just for fun!

The chubby kitty is mounted on a Woodware Action Wobble so if you ping it it wobbles. It's a very light plastic spring that as two self adhesive bases for mounting. Very easy to use and great fun.

Pop along to the Woodware blog to see other variations on the sketch.
