Welcome to WOYWW 213! I have two pics for you today.
First up is a pic showing I do make a mess when working by hauling out a bunch of stuff that I think I might need /use. Front and center is an almost finished CASed card.
Next is my desk as I leave it Tuesday night showing all of my Christmas cards for my upcoming Christmas in July extravaganza class!
The two cards up front are the cards I've CASed from Darnell here and a second one whose post I cant find now.
For the card on the left, I've switched the holly wreath stamp and used shiny red card stock. To add some texture to the red, I embossed the curve to follow the curve of the white paper above it. With all the cards I've made, this is the first time I've heat embossed on vellum! ...and I didn't scorch it!
For the deep burgundy card, I've used the bottom portion of a holly bouquet stamp and silver stars, as my primitive stars were way too small. My layout is very close to the inspiration card, wish I could find that post. :/
The reindeer cards are my NBUS (never before used schtuff). Yes I'm borrowing this from Darnell also...I'll call it "knee-bus". :) Anyway, the stamps are very old wood mounted from Memory Box. I've covered them a bit so as not to ruin the surprise for my class in case any of them read my blog. :)
I've also switched out an ATC on my shelf...see it? I bring it out to remind myself how lucky I am to live in a free society/country. My way of celebrating the 4th of July you could say.
And last but not least is a tip of the crafty hat to Julia our hostess with the mostest! Stop by for a cuppa and a good long snoop as all the links are over there.
That's it from me
(edit: boy google+ sure blurries the pics when you click on them for a better view. this happens when I post from the iPad. so sorry folks! I'll switch them as soon as I unbury the laptop. further update: pics have been swapped out so now they will enlarge when you click on them and hopefully stay in focus.)
