Wonderful Wednesday! I'm taking the day off to get some work done such as fix Dad's dress slacks (clean with Dryel in the dryer then iron), maybe make some cupcakes, clean the dining room table, and think of something for supper. But first... It's WEDNESDAY! If you've been following me you know that today I'm taking part in a international blog hop about desks. You know, the messy tables where we crafters create... And thanks to Julia at the Stamping Ground who brought this community together.
At the moment my desk is rather inactive. Just the residual stuff from this past week and weekend when I managed to get my 4 card samples completed along with the supply list (sizes of cut papers, inks, etc) and the directions for a class proposal in October. You see my paper trimmer, Cricut, some stamps, my Corner Chomper and a package of rhinestones, my Scor-Pal on the blue mat, then scissors, some scraps, ATG tape gun, and who knows what. And you can see behind the Cricut where I have stuff galore with my Copics, and "stuff". And if you're interested I've shown 2 cards already so here is the 3rd.
I seen a really cool card on Pinterest doing this and was most excited! The blogger who made the original card used punches. I used Spellbinder dies instead. And I just purchased a Copper Wink of Luna brush which has a subtle metallic look which I used on the pumpkin stem. My Corner Chomper got a bit of use to round the corners. I love the option of using either the 1/4" or 1/2" roundings.
Now, isn't this cool??? I never would have thought to "cut away" the inside, just like a jack-o-lantern, but without the face. The blog name is Hands On and you can see the original card by clicking on the blog name. But now that my post is done, please head over to the Stamping Ground and check out all the other desks. (And, if you have time, go back a couple posts on Julia's blog and check out the cool ships!! They are fabulous!) Also, before you leave I'd love to hear from you about my post if you're so inclined.
