DTGD & WOYWW # 322

  Col. 3:16-17 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus giving thanks to God and the Father, by him.

Hello Fellow Deskers!  I was so busy with Splitcoast's Dare to Get Dirty Challenges for Fan Club members, all last week, that I forgot about WOYWW !  So on this post I will show you what my work area looked like last week, and show you the 40 cards I made last week for our week of challenges. It was a whirlwind week of 5 or 6 challenges a day for a whole week!  I used stash and stamps I hadn't used in a while and  used a variety  techniques. The challenges were really inspiring.  The good thing about all this is getting cards I need made ahead of time.  Four have already been mailed and an additional 12 have the insides already stamped.  Some of them are for specific people's birthdays, so I hope I am prepared!




Here are a couple of my favorites.  Top left is with some Graphic 45 paper and an old rabbit stamp I have had for 20 years.  Top right is a special cowboy card for a special cowboy.  It is a Lili of the Valley stamp colored with Copics and the banner is with Die-namics from My Favorite Things.. Bottom left is from a SU! set Countrside, and the bottom right is a B-Line Design stamp.  On that card I used the masking tape technique.


Two more favorites;  Left:  I heat embossed with winter white embossing powder this SU!image  Inspired By Nature on Kraft and and layered on red and Kraft and red again using SU! zigzag embossing folder.  The one on the right : I stamped images from Artful Illusions  Mrs. O'Leary's in Always Artichoke and layered on SU! DP To The Nines DP and Always Artichoke card stock, stamped with SU! Print Pattern background stamp.  I added a glass over the sentiment from SU! Edgy Eloquence.  Also added a key and Always Artichoke denim  ribbon and birthday hardware.  This one has already been mailed to my brother-in-law.

Nice of you to stop in!  I don't know what the weather is like where you are, but here it is very hot! So stay cool.  Stop in to see Stamping Ground and see the rest of the WOYWW deskers.
Happy crafting!

  10. I had to keep my mess cleaned up as I went along. Make a card, write down supplies, put them away. Repeat! LOL. I'd not find a thing if I didn't. It was a fun filled week. I should probably do a group shot also! Thanks for sharing.

  11. Forty cards??? OHMYGOODNESS... that's a LOT! I adore the rabbit card (I just love Alice in Wonderland) and I have some of that graphic 45 paper (the small 6x6 inch variant) laying around still. It's just too nice to cut up... I might use it for a card also someday. Happy woyww and a warm hug (it's hot and humid in the Netherlands at the moment!) from Holland, Marit #36

  12. Wow, you certainly were prolific last week! I'm intrigued by your card done with the "masking tape technique" -- do you stamp and then take some of the ink off, when wet, with tape? It looks like it makes a really gorgeous texture. Happy WOYWW (a day late). ~ Laura #48
