Wedding card


This is a wedding card for the sketch time on Sunday stamps 180:


I turned the sketch to the right. I used a grey card blank on to which I layered a piece of Vintage vellum embroidery by inspire me papers (difficult to see in a photo).The middle paper is a cutting from Best Creation Inc Mr & Mrs glitter paper. I used a piece of open weave ribbon for the chevron wrapped with some eyelash trim, which the image layered over this.

The image was stamped with versamark using a lovely old Anita stamp that I've had for years and heat embossed with gold powder, colouring the man's jacket and their faces with promarker flexmarkers. I tore round a perspex oval.

Santoro birthday


This card is another one made with a Santoro decoupage kit, using offcut pieces of paper including more bits originally from HOTP.

I followed the sketch for Creative sketchy girls 24:

For the graduate


This is a commissioned card for a graduate. Part of the card is cannibalised from a card I made some years ago and never used, so bits are upcycled on to this one, addition glittered strip, offcut paper, Anna Griffin sentiment pieces and the chipboard and button flowers.

WOYWW 472


Having returned to What's on your workdesk Wednesday, having been missing for quite a time, I'm determined to take part again this week.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, the head over to WOYWW 472 at Julia's lovely blog and find out ... and I hope you'll join in the fun.

There isn't much of interest on my desk today .. just the remains of making a couple of cards yesterday that were blogged and a few bits of paper left out and another Santoro decoupage  kit waiting to be put together. In an hour or two there probably won't be much actual desk seen because I'll probably have stuff all over the place.



However, someone who commented on my post made for last week's snoop around, mentioned storage of wooden stamps and it made me realise that, although I'd shown most of my craft stuff I hadn't actually opened and shown the drawers where I keep embossing powders, etc ... and also lots of wooden stamps: And I have a supply of pens on top of the chest of drawers:








I have a shelf above a couple of my trolleys that house some really useful boxes, which is a nice way of displaying some of my stamps.

I also have a couple of boxes that house some smaller wooden stamps.


I remember a few years ago, when I started to buy more and more unmounted stamps, I said that was the way to go because they take up far less space and that I wouldn't be buying any more wooden stamps ... well that decision didn't last because my collection has definitely continued to grow ... I just love them.

In a while I'll visit some of the blogs linked for WOYWW 472 and I hope you will too.
