A Sparkly Christmas Angel Card - and more of my stamping room
I made this CAS card for seven challenges: Flutterby Wednesday - Christmas in July and use an angel, butterfly or fairy, Simplicity's One-Layer Wednesday - which is also Christmas in July and one layer, and five SplitCoastStampers Dare to Get Dirty Challenges - to embrace white space, glitter, texture, winter wonderland, and winged things.
I started by sponging color through a brass stencil with a stipple brush. I used Stampin' Up!'s Crushed Curry, Summer Sun, Soft Suede and Blush Blossom. Then I used embossing paste and added the glitter. The sentiment is by katie and co (dollar stamp from Michael's) and is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black. I added a Twinkle over the "i."
I'm also adding a couple - OK, three! - pictures of my stamping space to show more of where I actually "work."
This is, from left to right, my 12 x 12 paper (in the white drawers,) my alphabet stamps, new stamps I haven't put in a book yet (in the shelving of the desk,) my glitters, embossing powders, eyelets and snaps, Christmas stamps, glues and stamp cleaner pads, backup supplies, etc. (in the colorful drawers), my BIGkick, Fiskars guillotine cutter, Scor-Pal, Martha Stewart scoring tool, and then miscellaneous things and a lot of my punches (in the gray drawers.)
This just shows the corner. I have papers and envelopes in the 24-slot shelving. I have a couple "alterables" and some scrapbooking I COULD work on. Also a couple boxes of miscellaneous ribbons and things.
This shelving unit has my ink pads, my three-ring binders with all my Cuttlebug folders and dies, unmounted stamps, Stampin' Up! and Papertrey cardstocks, my SU! markers, pads of patterned paper, some more punches, my "card parts," ATG gun, etc.
I guess I didn't take pictures of my table/desk. It has a Making Memories turning storage thingy with my scissors, tools, brushes, blending tools, glues, etc. I also have spinning CD rack with all my Nestabilities and PTI stamps and some more ink pads. And a small six-drawer unit with my acrylic blocks, small embellishments, etc. That's about it, although I know I've missed a few things. I am a lazy stamper. I have a chair that spins, and I can reach nearly everything without getting up!
Sorry to be so long-winded and boring today! Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
