Rubber Art Stamping & Card Making.

WOYWW #146

Hi everyone, been MIA for a few weeks- wrapped up in Wedding Stationery, and work. I've really missed joining the weekly workdesk wander, at the Incredible Julia Dunnits,so here I am again. Back on afternoon shift now, so have some more time (at last). I can go to bed when I want, get up when I am ready, and still get stuff done. Right now I am making a wedding card for someone at work who's getting married, I have a mug of coffee by my side, and Disturbed blasting from my PC- all is right with my world! :)
This engagement card was made for some friends, really simple, just a ribbon threaded through a Diamanté heart buckle, wrapped around a square of white card, matted onto another square of white, then navy to match the ribbon. Stamped the Congratulations in Distress Stormy Sky and heat embossed it with clear powder and matted onto a navy strip.

 This is the start of a Christening card for a little girl, using a Creative Expressions medallion stamp I've used for this before.
Been bargain finding again- I've wanted the Raven stamp from Jennie at The Artistic Stamper for a while, and she had a fab sale on Feb 29th, so I took advantage of her generosity, lol. Got some embellishment bits as well, I'll find those again and post a pic.
 The Halloween stamps are from Chocolate Baroque, I don't have any Halloween stamps, and these were a great buy. The little wood mounted Alphabets you can see were probably my best buy to date- we went to Kidderminster recently, as Beloved Husband wanted to go to PC World, and they have a store called The Range there, which has quite a big craft section. These stamps were in their reduced bin, 99p a set! I also got the other two for 99p each, a 'With Sympathy' stamp, and one that reads Thank You in scrabble tiles. The rosettes are done in a sparkly vellum, for the previously mentioned Wedding card, and to everyone who suggested it last time, a glue gun works great, thanks folks.

Last couple of pics, from my youngest son for Mothers Day, a Simons Cat pillow. On my pc desk, there are two Simons Cats, one each from Son & Hubby for Christmas, a Charlie Brown,as I am also a massive Snoopy fan, and sitting next to CB is Boris the Bat, a pressie from Beloved Husband. The tiny little white clay teddy was made by my Daughter in Law Becky a few years ago.

 So thats my little corner of the world today, hope you are all having a great Wednesday, see as many of you as I can get to over the next few days.

Thanks for popping in this morning and for the loan of the It Dept (now on his way home). I was not up early this morning, just up very late last night. It looks as though you had a good time at The Range. I reckon that Rebecca's rose stamp would do well for a Sympathy card too, amongst loads of other uses. Hope you get lots of use from it. If you read all the other comments (when I manage to get through them all) lots of people think it should be sold commercially, and she should design more. She is not sure, but we will see. It could be a good addition to her other craft sales. Have fun with your roof. xx Maggie #5

I had no idea that Simon the Cat jumped off the computer screen to become a plush doll or a pillow. Too fun! I love the simplistic engagement card, the diamond heart is the perfect things for this card. Great bargain finds! Happy creating and happy WOYWW Judy #134 PS. love the WWW-weekly workdesk wander phrase

OOh Shaz, you've got it going on! That Medallion stamp is such a useful one, I've used mine a number fo times and consider it money well spent. And talking of money - lovely collection of new stamps...isn't it delicious!

RosC said...

Hi Shaz, I love Snoopy characters too. Charlie Brown caught my eye straight away. Elegant engagement card. I like the simplicity of having a focal point that the eye returns to.
I've been MIA too, having a lovely holiday.
