Today we have a super easy, and I hope fun, Challenge - What's On Your Work Table? We want to see what you like to work on.
For this week's "What's On Your Work Desk" Challenge, DT Member Karen Letchworth took a look around her craft table and saw lots of great Kraft Outlet goodies she could use. She started her project with a piece of Half-Size Blackboard Stock Paper which she folded in half using her Bone Folder Tool to create a card. She then used patterned paper scraps and a Vintage Dictionary Page Scrap found on her craft table to create the background and accents to decorate the Small Glassine Bag. She tied a few lengths of Black Baker's Twine around the Small Glassine Bag and tucked a Jenni Bowlin Vintage Mini Deck Journaling Card inside. The finishing touch was a Vintage Memories Wooden Clothespin which she embellished with a bow-tie that was die-cut from a scrap piece of Half-Size Blackboard Stock Paper. Karen was determined to use only things she found on her work desk to create this card, and she looks forward to seeing what YOU will create using what's on YOUR work desk. You're invited to stop by her blog, My Cup Runneth Over, to take a peek and say hello; and Karen hopes you will play along in this week's challenge.
For this week's "What's On Your Work Desk", Tammy took a picture so she had to commit to work with what was there when it was time to start work on this week's challenge. She shared that they were items that actually were waiting to be put away. Her items are her, Peachy Keen Stamp folder, extra die-cuts of a baseball and bat, and a homeless blue sequin. She noted that she could did not work the bat in the design.
Tammy started her card using a Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock. She then took two pieces of patterned paper and joined them together and added them to her base adding a length of baseball grosgrain ribbon to the center. Next she cut a banner from a Vintage Dictionary Page and added it to the left side of the card front. Next she then added the baseball die-cut which she selected one of the cute faces from Peach Keen Everyday Faces and stamped it on the baseball die-cut. Behind the baseball, she added a layered scalloped circle which she stamped her sentiment. Next she die-cut a few stitched stars and added those as well. All that was left was to use the blue sequin, and she added that to one of the red stars as well as add more sequins for a final finishing touch. For additional pictures and a complete supply list, please visit Tammy at Creating Somewhere Under The Sun.
Kristi recently reorganized her craft room including sorting her stamps better. She came across a stamp set that she didn't remember and left it on her work table to play with later. The result was a sweet woodland scene featuring a pair of deer grazing. She began her card with a base made from Brown Kraft Cover Weight Card Stock. After stamping and water coloring her image, she stamp a sentiment in brown on the top right of the panel. She then matted her image in a matching green and brown card stock she then wrapped the card in muslin ribbon and tied it into a knot at the left bottom corner.
