WOYWW 541

I'm writing this whilst watching Great British Bake Off and nearly started, good morning bakers...

let's start again.  Good Morning Deskers!  Whizzday or WOYWW day again...   time for another desk sharing get together with Julia and the gang - join in here    and even though I'm early prepping this it seems Julia is earlier still... so it's going to be a live post! 

I had planned to have loads to show today... but of course I haven't done a lot..
 I have rushed together another Christmas card using the new stamps from t'other week!



spritzed the card base with Victorian Velvet distress oxide spray, bit of water, bit of blotting...


stamped another of the leafy stamps just in black on white card

used the teeny greeting as an extra layer of background in pink ink and edged the card scrap with it too.



I have put the other 2 purple ones together too, so I now have a grand total of 4 finished cards!





Kew last Saturday was WET - had a fabulous time!  pics are here   hopefully this weekend will be drier! 

so, even though it's Tuesday, welcome to What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday....

Morning Helen, you really have found a winning combo with that stamp. I'm all for stamps like these. Give yourself a day to just work on more and I think you could get create all you need. Happy WoywW Hugs Tracey x
P.S Fingers crossed for a drier weekend for Kew..

Brilliant cards - I was looking for an easy peasy stamping idea for class next week (very little prep lol, so over die cutting at the mo). Yep I think we might go along those lines..... different stamps of course. I am so over this rain as well, hope it is drier for you this weekend.

Great cards, I like both the positive and negative versions! I've been watching bake off too - the contestants are very poor this year in my opinion, I think the producers went for theYoof market as opposed to people who can actually bake!

Oh I love the stamp you used on that beautiful pink card. I like how the spritz turned out on that background. Enjoy a great week. Happy WOYWW

Diana Taylor said...

I love love love that Christmas stamp - the cards are fabulous and I love the two very different colour schemes. At this rate you could finish making your Christmas cards before October is out!!
Hope you have a great week, I'm off to visit Kew now!

Hi Helen, I really like the design of these Christmas cards you have done so far, everything from the color to the skinny sentiment to those backgrounds :) ~Stacy #24

I know I am supposed to be commenting on WOYWW, but I got distracted completely by your photographs. I shall have to revisit as I was flagging at about 100 :). I love the scene with the seat and tree, and then there were this amazing blue centres to the berries, not to forget the fabulous lizards and those slightly weird glass sculptures. Also the desert flowers and what was the blue and white behind the tree? Would love to use some of these as inspiration if you don’t object. The colours of the autumn are fabulous aren’t they! I love photography, but my health mans I don’t get to do as much as I used to.

Belinda said...

Hi Helen! At least you have a Christmas card complete. My box with the Christmas stamps and cards I began last year are still lost somewhere in my craft room!!! :) I suspect it's in my craft closet and it's a hot mess right now. Thanks for stopping by.

Neet said...

I actually wrote a comment on Tuesday but didn't post it for some reason or another - maybe the shock of seeing you making "C"cards in October! Good on you Helen but what a shock to my system.
Hugs, Neet 3 xx
