Good morning my dear friends!
How are you this gloomy morning?? Well it is gloomy here - autumn has kicked in - not temperature wise but the dark gloomy days have come! Still I guess that does give us time to sit inside and make cards ( well maybe!). Anyway today is Wednesday and WOYWW - I have missed last weeks but I am back now with my desk which is not very interesting and my first lot of Christmas cards! I don't feel Christmassy at all but a crafter has to do what a crafter has to do! Huh!
So to kick off lets look at my ever so boring desk....there is so little room now that I really have to tidy up after every card I make otherwise I can't do anything - how did it get this way I just don't know !
What you can see is a few ink pads from Simon Says Stamp - I have been wanting Doll Pink and Mint for ages and I have them now - then there is some mirror card which I have used on a Christmas card and is still hanging around and there is a beginning of a new card which I have used a cover up die on and you can see here
You will have to wait till my next post to see what happens with it....he, he just like a TV series..a cliff hanger at the end! :-)
Well don't worry I have plenty of cards for you to get some inspiration...I hope...
So number one.....kraft, white and silver combo.... dies from Simon Says Stamp, a bit of stamping and pearls and an embossing folder for the background....
Next up red, silver and white combo - two dies - another Simon Says Stamp and the lovely poinsettia die is from our Slovene company Najlepši par....
Washi tape card up next...I have so much washi tape and I think a few cards like this might make me use up just a little bit....why did I buy so much washi tape anyway??? The word die is from the Frantic Stamper...
Yes and here is another one that follows the similar pattern but is made with a wash of watercolors...the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp and it is covered in glitter glue....simple but I like it!
This last one is a "proper" Christmas one....I did a background with a TH stencil and TH DI Mustered Seed! Then I put vellum over it and then die cut the manger and sentiment in gold mirror card....
And here is my last card for today it was made for a friend who's little grandson TIM was christened last week . I used the same TH stencil for the background - vellum also and lots of bling - I must admit it is one of my favourite cards for a christening - the sentiment is also from Najlepši par ! The stamp for the baby cot is from France but I have no clue what make - it was a gift from my daughter! The cross is a Spellbinders die!
So there - that is all from me today! I will now hook up to the main office - Stamping Ground and you should too if you want to show the world what is on your desk and also want to have a snoop around other desks!
I wish you a lovely day and week! Keep crafting and enjoying it!
Lots of hugs to all,
