Whats on your desk today?


well on my desk there are two cards and some lovely Martha Stewart punches that I treated myself to. I have one of the punch around the page sets and the deep edge fan punch on my desk.




I also got these other punches, yes I bought nearly every set that was on telly the other day and they all came today, so I have stroked them, tested them and created a space to keep them in. If you are a regular desk hopper no doubt you will see the various sets appearing over the next few weeks.


The card is for my niece who is getting wed on Friday, I have used the lovely freebie from Pollycraft, some K and Co paper, the punch around the page set and the fan down the side of the card. I coloured the bears with pro markers and embellished it with little pearls, stones and my ever faithful clear sparkle sakura pen. I was so pleased when I was finished it I'm still smiling as I type, although that was only a few minutes ago, lol.
I am entering this card in



This card is using the freebie from Designed 2 Delight for this week, coloured with my new tablet and photoshop. This is the first time I have tried this so I was quite pleased with the way it turned out. The challenge on Double Delight this week is to use blue and buttons. Blue was easy but I don't have any buttons for crafting with as I never use them so I made my own by punching out some small circles and creating some holes. I did add some on the image digitally but I'm not sure how well that can be seen so I added the paper ones.
If your still here well done you, if you want to join in the desk hopping go to
The Stamping Ground where you will find out all you need to know and any comments you leave will be read with great appreciation and interest.

Morning Tracy, Happy WOYWW!
Great looking desk with two familiar images on your cards. I'm about to post my version of the Designed 2 Delight card and about to print out the gorgeous bride & groom image to colour up:-) Great minds eh :-)
Beautiful cards, love your wedding one, I'm sure you're niece will love it! and how jealous am i about all those fab punches!
In answer to your question on my post, yes i made those paper flowers but i'm dissapointed with them as I thought it'd be a great idea to add some sparkle and put some glitter glue in the centre's but when it dried it looked rubbish, so i've added a wee gem on top...anyhow :-) Sorry i appear to have written a bit of a book!

hope you have a great day
hugs

No, no, no, no, no! I will not be drawn into a punch buying addiction... although I do keep looking at the gloopy looking MS one.

Sarpreet said...

Gorgeous cards, and gorgeous desk. Those punches are fantastic. I love them, Happy WOYWW! Thank you for visiting my desk and my blog, i did not watch the launch either of the SWALK stamps because I knew I would want them to. I changed the channel. But it was everywhere - on peeps blogs, in galleries. Then my local shoo bought them in and I had to have them! They kept it to one side til pay day for me! how fab is that! Now I am looking for the show on TV for inspiration and there does not appear to be any now! I hope they repeat it in the future

I know how late I am this week, but I was glad I made it by to see your new punches and card. I am not a big punch fan, but I do like the ones by MS. Of course, I only admire them from afar. Like on your desk! Happy belated WOYWW.
