It's just been that kind of week. Other than finishing out a card for a memorial for a friend and finishing another that I used to teach a class.... no creative work going on. But I can show you my boring desk that is waiting for me and the class card that I finally finished. If you're interested in WHY I'm showing you my desk you need to check out Julia's Stamping Ground blog. She started this 251 weeks ago!
Yep, very little happening. But there are some new stamps waiting for me! You can see my Cricut, paper trimmer stamps, work station, ink, scissors, acrylic blocks, and some cards I need to put away. Definitely boring.
This is the exterior of the card. It's about 9" x 4 1/2". It's called a Concertina Card on my "Move It" CD from the Technique Junkies. (I've been a "junkie" for about 9 years and I have learned much and enjoyed it greatly.) I used a lot of my dies to decorate this baby....
I just had to try out this new-to-me butterfly die from Spellbinders. I may have to shim it a bit to get all the pieces cut. Definitely intricate but I love the delicate look. And since I had so much green already on this card I decided to use pink for the branch. Oh, do you see the green sequin? I just won a drawing and got a package in from a friend who is with A|Muse Studios.
Kinda looks like a squash book. Same basic principle. I used left over paper from other classes for this. Dies are from Spellbinders and Heartfelt Creations Stamped images are from old The Angel Company sets.
This is the front and back inside covers. The butterfly is from the same package as the one on the cover.
I cut the white pieces for the stamped texts using the same large scallop die as the green layers.
So, what do you think of my card? I made another last fall for my class sample but I made it more of a photo album with pics of our 2 youngest granddaughters. So, now that you've reached the end of my post please leave a comment, if you're so inclined, then hop on over to the Stamping Ground and check out desks from all around the world. There's usually about 100 deskers so if you don't see that many hop back later. They link all day long. And have your favorite cuppa something, relax and enjoy! You may be inspired! I usually am!
