First of all, Happy 8th Anniversary to What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday! This is week 416 that this fun weekly blog get together has been taking place. Thanks, Julia of the Stamping Ground for bringing so many together in fun and friendships!
My desk is very busy as I prepare for swaps for our upcoming Fun Stampers Journey 3rd annual Convention, prep for a class on Friday, and more. So much happening! But I got the card kits done and today is the cut off for registering. I have the first of a few "itty bittys" (our version of card candy or embellishments), and got my desk a bit more tidy since this picture was taken yesterday.
Let's see, from left to right, a pack of green paper that I'm die cutting for part of my itty bittys. Where I work on the paper pile on top of my Scor-Pal, the butterfly die cuts and my vine die, then my Ott lamp and then my Amaze machine with a piece of paper with lots of die cuts removed. I'm just using bits of bits. I took this pic so you can see the view I have as I work. So directly in front of my chair are my Copic markers front and center, to the right my rack of ink pads, and to the left my PanPastels in the mesh bags way at the top of the shelf and oodles of stuff right above the Cricut. But I do have a little project I can show...
This card has no stamping but all die cuts. I save the aluminum seal from our coffee cans and used a variety of dies to cut them into the flower and leaves. A few rhinestones for more bling. I mounted the flower on a piece of pearled black paper.
It's very difficult to photo this shiny card but it does just jump out at you. I'll be finishing this into a birthday card for my dad's wife's birthday tomorrow.
So please head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the many desks and crafters taking part in this hop. I'll be working on my trades and swaps all day as convention is in 2 weeks!!!
(And I'm so happy that I'm no longer getting the 30+ hits every 4 hours! After 3 1/2 months whoever must have decided I'm harmless or whatever. Back to the normal hits! Woo Hoo!)
