WOYWW 581

Good evening friends!

I hope you are all well. They (the government) are now letting us do all sorts of things but the question is do we want to do any of what we are permitet? It almost makes me worried to go out to shops and restaurants - I did take the plunge for one thing - swimming! I will have two sessions next week - there are lots of rules to abide but for me it is vital! I am hoping to go home soon and get my op but we will see... you will be informed ha, ha...
Okay so lets get back to the reason we are gathering today and that is to show our desks...I now have a lot of cards ready for any occassion so I am quite happy with all my lockdown work...I haven't finished my new needle felting project yet - as I am hoping to go home soon I have been busy with other stuff but I am getting there....it will be reveled soon...
Sooo....first up my desk this morning...


and the otherside....

My MISTI there balancing on the big shot....I love the MISTI - I really find it a handy tool as I have messed up so much stamping over the years!
Here is a bit of my desk that is such a mess but I never get round to tidying it up I just push it back...


Spray bottle , a little dish full of die cuts, washi tape, glues, nuvo drops....a right mess....

And now I would like to show you my "spring - summer collection of stamps and dies"

This one box.....
They are all sorted by brands and in the original packaging....I don't put them in new plastic bags as I think one plastic packaging is enough - if it gets damaged I try to fix it with washi tape...
Here is another box full....this is mostly ALTENEW stamp sets and dies and some from the Works - I find their dies are cheep and some very good! 


Now I would like to turn your attention to this little tool I have recently discovered...Do you have a problem with sequins, pearls or jewels always being turned up side down and then really struggling to get them the right side up when you want to put them on the card. Well I do and so I have found this thing - I think it is called the magic triangle....you put your pearls or sequins in the triangle like this...


then you just give them a little shake and magic happens - they are all the right side up...


very practical and I recommend it!
Now to my cards of this week - I have been doing more CAS cards this week - well this is CAS for me....


Washi tape, dies and gold mirror card - love the combination.....



The background stamp is SSS and I bought it last year - first time it has seen the light of the day! This is suppose to be a more boy card...


I really like this one - background is watercolor through a stencil...and those two parrots really look like they have a lot of fun - I don't usually do "character" cards but I just love these parrots...
And now the last one which is my favourite....the dahlia is actually one I have in my garden...



Here is the real dahlia.....


This was a long post - I hope you have stayed with me till the end but I get it if you haven't. Have a lovely week - I will try to get round to all of you but to be honest I never manage it! I will try my best though! Don't forget to link up to the Stamping ground where the queen Julia reigns!
Lots of love and hugs to all 
CARDARIAN

  8. Happy Belated WOYWW. We all want a Magic Triangle now! I will go and search for one, as I know my readers would love it. I love those parrots. Is it just me who would like to rummage through your stamp boxes. Ali x #28

  9. No sign prof swimming allowed here, I expect there’s too much to do to protect everyone so they just aren’t bothering. Lucky you! Beautiful cards as always, can’t believe the CAS one is just washi tape, it looks very convincingly stencilled! I like the parrots too, very fun. Super impressed by the magic triangle, it’s like ‘but how does it know...?!!!
