Pop over to Julia’s Stamping Ground to check out all the best crafty desks .. you learn soo much!
My desk today, kind of cleared as just finished a couple of cards, on right is my new cutter. New mini guillotine. I’m an old chalkie as we say here, or schoolie or teacher. We used guillotines so as crafter I love guillotines. One I had was Kaisercraft and ten years old, just wasn’t as good as it was so been looking for ages for new one. Till saw this one (Crafters’ Companion Mini Guillotine), I’d not found one in my price range that was real quality. I bought it for cutting technique, not scoring part as love my Martha Stewart board.
See video demo here (ignore sales pitch, listen to facts 😊). Selling of other items helped pay for this and my new craft machine, which is such a blessing. Very grateful.
I was in midst of card for Daniel in France, he has received card so can share it here now.
It was a pop up slider card (for “How To” details see HERE on this blog post). Used for this one Tin Tin, we’d watched Tin Tin video together at his lovely French farmhouse last Aug. The part on my scoringboard was the slider action for the card and also the colouring of Penny black floral piece I’d stamped out. Sharing both cards here.
First to the Tin Tin card.. must admit these slider cards really work for these cartoon images ... they’re so much fun.
Image courtesy of Google again. Mostly hand cut except CCD pierced rectangle for image background. Wanted to 3D image but ran out of time. It takes a month to get to France from here.
Second card is with the Penny Black Stamp Floral Bouquet multi stamped shared back here. At the time I was not happy with first card I made. I worked out issue in my mind! It was yellow roses on that card, plus didn’t like whiteness of background card. I changed it since then and now happy with it. Here my new version with this stamp .. quite different as you’ll see.
Used SB divine Eloquence centre die for Sweet n Sassy “Wait on Lord” Stamp (actually has typo on it 😐). Lace is ODB Lace border. Colours on stamped floral are with DI and colours intensified with Tombows.
They really made it pop. Cardstock is disc. variety.
Took few Aussie photos today on way home. Our days are glorious and those winter crystal clear lights in sky are evident in these two pickies. Second image if scroll in has a surfer catching a wave as this is good break for surfing..
Well, that’s all for today. It’s late here again, as our Wed is nearly over, never seem to be organised but better bit late than not at all.
Happy WOYWW and may the Lord God richly bless you wherever you maybe.
Prayer hugs, Shaz in Oz.x
Blessings from God’s Word:
How the Lord understands.. when no one else. What a comfort this is, never alone! He's only a prayer away.
Our Refuge and Strength as David says.
