Happy Birthday Dad

Now that this card has been received I can post it here :) The entire card started out as plain white card, and only 2 colours of distress ink used :)

 My hand made stamps - using foam for the circles (cut with the big shot) hand cut triangles and stamp lino for the rectangles.

Still here

Hello, remember me? it's been a while huh?
I'm sorry but this is going to be a photo heavy post, so it might take a while to load, but I have a lot of catching up to do :)

Cute eh? 3D origami :)

WOYWW #174

I've not posted for the last couple of weeks as I've not had much to show on my desk, as I've been trying to tidy things up (and not succeeding) so here is my desk as it is now, as you can see I'm being 'assisted' by Billy

Yesterday I spotted an ad in a magazine for a craft shop that's less than 10miles away, so off I trotted today to check it out :) mmmm new dies, I don't think I can walk past dies without NEEDING them.

 And I was playing yesterday colouring this little chap up, it's the first time I've tried stamping the lines with very pale ink so you don't get the black outline, I like the effect but more practice required.

Thanks for stopping by and have a look here http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/whats-on-your-workdesk-wednesday-174.html at more work desks.

Catching up

I was on holiday for a week at the start of this month and I don't seem to be getting anywhere fast now I'm back! I did rearrange all my dies onto magnetic sheets, splitting sets to get all the flowers together, swirls etc. and then getting sidetracked (as you do) and cutting thing out. I have however managed to get a card finished for my next-door neighbours birthday.

60 shape designed on sure cuts a lot, and cut with cricut. After seeing my step-moms card, I borrowed the idea for the inside, so sized the card the match the oval die. I die cut the swirl out of funky foam to make a stamp which I used with versamark and mica powder to create the background. The rolled roses have got glitter glue around the edges and the leaves have got mica powder for sparkle. Thanks for looking :)
