Another Wednesday, time to peek at each others desks and projects! If you want to know what WOYWW is, just go to http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.ca/p/what-is-woyww.html and all will be revealed!
Greetings to everyone! Our first October post (wait - what happened to September? Time goes by so fast these days!) I've been bitten by the card making bug lately. I may even have enough Christmas Cards this year to send out!
Here was my desk yesterday morning:
But I have been busy!
Here are my new toys that just arrived. I've heard so many good things about these make-up brushes and stencils, I hope they work the way everyone says they do! (I've tried them out since writing this, they are awesome!!!)
Here are some cards I made this week. I was inspired by a couple of you-tube Stampin' Up videos by the Australian couple Kylie and Bruno Bertucci. I'm not normally a fan of SU stamps, once in awhile I see something I like, but their paper and inks are really nice. And I like their card ideas!
This one is called Scrappy Scrap or something like that, I thought it was a great way to use up Christmas paper scraps from last year:
This idea came from them as well, although it is an old technique. I often forget about those old techniques that I should be using! This stamp is from Viva Las Vegas. I got it in a grab bag (I love those grab bags!) and never did find a way to use it that I liked until now!
and this one with the same technique:
They called it "Joseph's Coat technique.
This next one was inspired from a card my local SU representative sent me when I asked for a catalogue. I made this one and the next one. (without realizing it I used a SU snowman stamp!)
You can see how the middle part opens up
I think I will make several more using these 2 techniques!
Hubby and I walked down to the lake (Ontario) on Sunday, and I snapped this view between two trees.
I also harvested the catnip on the weekend. It took the cats about 5 minutes to find where I had hung it up to dry!
Here is Queen Inky on her throne, saying "have a wonderful week, everyone!"
And that goes for Mittsy and me as well!
