Happy World Cardmaking Day!
This weekend we actually do not have too much planned, so I have some time for crafting. It is a glorious autumn day, so after purchasing some popcorn from a cute little Cub Scout we know, we went to a park and took a little walk.
Now that we are home, I cleaned up my stamping desk a little. Joy Clair challenged us to show off your craft workspace. I never have shown mine. My desk is a repurposed player piano. It was supposed to be a family heirloom, but it was, in fact, a clunker! So I gifted the ivory keys to my brother-in-law (he sometimes repairs pianos), and DH tore out the rest and put in shelves.
You can see that it never is actually clean. I put out a few stamp sets that are NBUS (never-before-used-stuff). In fact, cleaning and organizing is basically the only way to resist the urge to buy things in all the sales today!
Maybe one day I will give a better tour of my craft area.
Anyhow, here is a card set I finished up. I had a background stamp from Technique Junkies that I thought looked like kitchen wallpaper. And I paired this with a Penny Black cooking stamp set that I also hadn’t used yet. I used all pigment inks here. The kraft ink got washed out in the photos, but it is lovely too.
The inside of this last card has a sentiment that says, “Hope you’re cooking up something fun!” You can see this set has fun sentiments!
I would love to enter Joy Clair’s My Crafty Workspace challenge and SimonSaysStamp’s World Cardmaking Challenge.
