Today is Wednesday and by all words and deeds WOYWW! If you want more information regarding WOYWW pop on over to Julia's blog Stamping Ground and click the link that says WOYWW and all the info is there! I apologize to the folks that visited me last week that I didn't get back to...promise to visit this week!
My desk...I did get into a little crafting after the antibiotics kicked in. My daughter and I skyped and had a good time Sunday night crafting and creating cards! Some aren't as good as what I wished they were but hey...I am a crafting!
|Nothing particularly new or exciting...just addressing the cards to be mailed out today to the swap partners I was assigned!|
Remember the Twist and Popup card from last week that I showed you? I decided I was going to do it till I got it right and made a couple for other swaps!
I made this using some papers Heather gave me from Close to My Heart! I always was a Stampin Up! Fan but I am really getting into these sets and papers.
Inside of the card!
I really love the cool blue green of this paper!
These were fun to make!
I love cards and envelopes that match and have just about as much fun coloring them as I did just stamping in the past. This was a new technique for me this week called a center step card...if you click the picture you can see the glitter from a new product I bought from Crafters Companion called Spectrum Noir Sparkle a while back...a paint brush that glitters...no mess!
|A vintage look card!|
Another new technique this week was the dress pleated card. I tried to "pleat" several different papers but if they were prints they didn't do as well as a solid on one side and a print on the other!
Tried my hand at a monochromatic blue card for a swap...don't know that I like this!
Well that is it for me...better get dressed another appointment this after noon...yesterday's appointment with the urologist for the urodynamics test has left me a bit off on going to today's appointment... Always something as we age isn't it!
