Thinking of You - Woodware Tatty Daisies

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How was your Easter? Did you eat lots of chocolate? We gave up chocolate for Lent so it was nice to have a bit yesterday. We are now waiting for our daughter and her fiance to arrive. The meal is in the slow cooker and it will be ready when they arrive. I love my slow cooker. I think we are going to work on the table plan today that is going to be hard.

When I was at Ally Pally I treated myself to some new Woodware stamps. I was looking at some of the samples Julia Watts had and I just couldn't resist.


This is an unusual card for me being a DL card. It will go through the post really nicely. I created the background with a mix of Pixie Powders, Brushos and Distress ink around the edges.  


This is the Tatty Daisies stamp by Woodware ( which is now under the banner of Creative Expressions). As it is such a long stamp I had to use it diagonally across my largest block. I stamped onto the background with Perfect Medium and I heat embossed with a black detail powder. Then I put some Pixie powders into a well on a tray and added water. Then with this mix I painted the daisies. Don't they look like they are smiling?


The sentiment came in the stamp set and was heat embossed in the same way as the daisies. 

We have also done a bit of work in the garden and a cheeky robin helped us. 


I do love robins, he kept swooping down to find worms and bugs that had been uncovered.


I was very pleased with how this card worked out. I want to do a bit more experimenting I have a few other ideas. 


Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Take care. 

Hugs Jackie

  7. Gorgeous card Jackie - and such a fabulous stamp as well. Woodware do come up with some beauties don't they. Lovely background you made too.

    Good luck with the seating plan - and you'll have earned a glass of wine to go with that scrummy dinner I suspect!

  19. Great stamp and detail Jackie. We have 4 robins visiting the garden at the moment. My husband puts out mealworms for them. They are so tame. I hope we get to see the babies again this year as they are so very cute!
