WOYWW and those metal shapes

Its Wednesday again and as I missed putting up my desk last week I am here again with my little corner in the back bedroom.   I did visit a few desk last week though and was intrigued with some of the different desks I saw.

Before I reveal my desk though I thought I had better post the two cards I made with the metal shapes which were lurking on the desk a couple of weeks ago.

Decoration cards

I have given the metal pieces a hanging ribbon so that they can be removed from the card and hung on the tree if recipients wish.   The first card I made like this left a very ‘naked’ card so with these I have put a shape underneath the shape so that when you remove the decoration you still have a pretty card to look at.  the metal was cut with a nestability shape before I ran it through the Big Shot in an embossing folder.

Now my desk.   It is very dark and dismal here – again – so even my south-facing desk is not getting too much light.

WOYWW - Oct 6th - week 3 for me

There are two finished cards and two to finish for my next ‘Card Purse’ which is stood up on the right.  I bought myself some new distress inks on Saturday and some ‘Cut and Dry Foam’ so you can see the total collection of my inks near the back – all 5 or 6 of them!!.   I will have to have a really good play with them at some time as I am not using them to their full potential but at least with the foam I will use them a little bit more than I did when I had only 3.   The pink piece of card right at the front is some Craftwork Card cutouts with which I had been making cards with earlier on in the week.   I haven’t posted them yet as I want to do a few more and then post a few bundles.  They are hopefully destined to be sold in fives at the fair.

Am off now to link my desk and have a quick nosey at some of the ones already posted which can be found here on Julies Blog.

Happy Crafting

    Love your busy looking desk, and the cards.

    Hanging cards turned out great, good idea to put something behind them in case they take the decoration off the front. And don’t worry about only having a few of the distress inks, from small acorns do big oak trees grow, or something like that! Perhaps I just made that bit up!!!

    I love the paper you’re using for the cards – I had some in the summer and used it up in a jif – in fact couldn’t stop making stuff wit it – especially the blue side. Your cards are fun. Like the metal idea, they worked out really well!

  27. Great idea – thanks for sharing it with us! #5

  28. Phree says:

    Thanks for sharing the cards you made with the metal shapes, what a great idea to only attach them with some ribbon so they can be used as tree ornaments.

  29. You have about four more of those inks than I have! Actually 5, since I remembered I only have ONE. I know you will use them, though. And those cards are lookiing really good so far. Love the ones from 2 weeks ago, too. (#1)

  30. What a great idea – to make part of the card a usable decoration! And nice to see a peek at where someone else creates.

    Thanks for the peep.
    Luv Joanne xx

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. Yes, I do have to clear everything away after a craft session as Hubby has OCD.
    Lovely idea to have removable trees on your cards. And cupcakes! Cupcakes are great!
