Finished Card

Here is the finished card from Wednesday's desk.  I used H2Os for the background then spritzed with water and dabbed with kitchen roll.  I stamped the images with black Versafine using the Sheena Douglas, A Little Bit Sketchy - Lakeside Shore stamp set and embossed with WOW embossing powder Black Glint.  The sentiment is from a Hobby Art clear set.  The mat and the hearts are coloured the same way as the background and the heart is cut from a Cuttlebug die. I really enjoyed making this card and am going to use my H2Os a lot more.  They have been hiding in a drawer for ages and I had forgotten about them!   To the bottom right of the top heart you can see a little smudge of paint! Ho hum, I suppose its ok as its handmade?? xx

What's on your Workdesk Wednesday 146

I am pleased this WOYWW as I have actually managed to post in the morning for a change!  On my desk are some new purchases that I haven't managed to put away yet.  From Craftin Charlie, the two paper pads and the Inkadinkado stamps and from the Craft Barn, the two Crafty Individuals stamps.  Later on I am going to have a play with them and see what I come up with.  The plastic pocket to the left just under the paper pad, is housing various bits of embossing I did last Wednesday ready to incorporate into projects.  I hope you have a good day and thank you for stopping by.  If you want to join in the Wednesday desk hopping fun, all you have to do is visit Julia's Place. How can you resist!

Embossed Mother's Day Card

I made this card for my Mum-in law.  Embossing folders seem to get neglected, so I was determined to use one and this Creative Expressions flower pattern is a favourite.  I used Spellbinders Labels twenty and the butterfly is a Sissix Embosslits cut and emboss die called Beautiful Wings which is made for Stampin Up. The pink is much brighter but I cannot seem to get my photo's to come out very clear - but I hope you get the idea.

What's on your Workdesk? Wednesday 145

If you don't know what this Wednesday thing is all about, then pop over to Julia's wonderful blog to join in and have a good snoop at fellow crafters desks.

I have to confess, not much crafting has been done over the last couple of weeks but I have started again this afternoon with some embossing.  Not sure where I am going with it yet but, folders and cuttlebug at the ready and will see where I end up! Towards the back you can see a tub of Flitterglu.  I bought the starter kit containing this, some guilding flakes and the necessary sponges and stuff so I can have a go.  Something to try in the future. If anyone has already tried using the Flitterglu, please let me know how you got on? Thank you. I hope you are having nice weather wherever you are.  Here in Bournemouth it is sunny and warm at the moment. One think I forgot to put on my desk in pride of place was my WOYWW badge - how remiss of me! Thank you Julia.  Have a fab day everyone and thank you for visiting my desk xx
