What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #490

Good morning my crafty WOYWW friends! For those of you that aren’t familiar with WOYWW (What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday), head on over to Julia’s Stamping Ground and you will find desks from all around the world for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday where we get to snoop on other crafter’s desks.

Hello! I am not scheduled to post today since I have been trying to post at least every other week but I looked at my hot mess express desk today and said to myself, “Why not?”.

So let’s dig into this clutter. On the left you see my pitcher filled or should I say stuffed with Stampin up markers and some paint brushes. My goal is to move the markers and only have brushes in there since I have been using them a lot more to paint.  Below that, you see my latest purchase – floral wire and tape for an upcoming craft project. Right beside that are some flowers I colored up and need to be placed on a card.  You can also see a completed card peeking out from under the paper cut files from my Silhouette. I am working on a Japanese maple so I need to color them up before assembling them into a home decor item. You can also see some printouts on Copic x-press paper to be colored for a custom order I am working on. I grabbed my container with some of my 6×6 Christmas paper for color combination inspirations. I didn’t clean up my paint from two weeks ago (yes, I said 2) so you can see that and the dirty paint brushes. You can also see a really cool book pin my husband bought me. I am a bit of book nerd and love all things book related.

As I mentioned, I am working on a custom order so I will take a few days to get around to visit your desks.

Have a blessed day and keep crafting!


Happy World Cardmaking Day!

anniversaryHappy World Cardmaking Day! I thought I would share with you a card I made for my sister’s anniversary.  I used the amazing Mo Manning’s digi of this lovely bride and groom and colored them up with my Copics.  I love the fall color of the envelop I used from Paper Source.

anniversary2I have quite a lot of embossing plates (many unused) so I pulled out one that I thought looked elegant and embossed a white piece of cardstock that I attached to the front of the card.

anniversary3Again the beauty of using digital stamps is that you can resize he images. So I decided to make them companion bookmarks. I used an MFT bookmark die to cut the bookmarks. anniversary4Then I used a really great hemp cord to attach these beautiful vintage soaring bird charms from Maya Roads that I bought years ago. I get so happy when I actually use up my supplies!

anniversary5I hope you all have a great day and maybe find time to make a little card today for World Cardmaking Day!


Birthday step card for baby


Hello Everyone! I hope you all are well. Today is a dreary dark and I mean so dark that I have extra lights on to make me think it’s really daytime. The rain is coming down hard and I am dreading pick up today. The idea of standing in a downpour for over 10 minutes is not appealing the least to me. Right now it is coming down so hard it is like a sheet of rain that you can’t see through.

On the sunnier side of things I wanted to share this super cute step card I made for my dear friend Ashley’s baby girl, who just turned 1. I found this cute file on the Silhouette design store and had to have it.babycard2I was so happy when I found the polka dot paper that matched my envelope from Paper Source. The little puffy kitty embellishment is from none other than Crate Paper. The product is called Wonder and it has the cutest puffy stickers in this set. I actually received it in my Gossamer Blue kit.babycard3I used pop dots to give the dresser drawers more dimension and added pearls for the draw pulls. It came together rather quickly and I just love the warm color palette.babycard4I used one of the canvas bags I bought last year on clearance at Target to hold the envelope and used foam letters to personalize the bag.

We had a really nice time at the party and the weather was great so the kids could play outside.

I am off now to get some work completed before that dreadful, drenching I will experience today at pick up!!

Have a blessed day my friends!


12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts: Day 2 – Ornaments card

day2_ornaments1Good morning and welcome to day two of my 12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts!  What a difference one day can be from another. Yesterday the temperature got up to 64 degrees and today it’s barely 40 and cloudy.  Brrr… Makes me want to crawl under a blanket with some tea!


Today’s card I used an old Hero Arts stamp set and stamped several on a sheet of Copic paper and then colored them up with my Copics and cut them out.  I attached them to the card with some brads and used pop dots to add dimension to one of the ornaments. I used Stampin Up paper as the card base and added some corrugated paper for more texture to the card. I left the inside blank.

day2_ornaments3Today’s prop is a wreath that I plan on using in my craft room. I threw some ornaments on it and layed out my card for another view.

I hope you are having a blessed day and I will see you tomorrow with another creation!!
