WOYWW 493: All Over the Place

A quick post today as I have had a bit of a bug which knocked me for six on Monday.  I am feeling better now, although I have a rather irritating cough which tends to get worse when I talk.  Luckily I only have to teach three lessons today before going to a meeting, so will manage somehow.  My desk is rather staged, as I can't show what I was working on yesterday.  It was a tag for a swap and I can't share it, or the other one which I sent, as they won't have arrived yet. If you'd like to pop back tomorrow though, I will be sharing them then.
Instead I'll share some of the Christmas card toppers that I made at the Workshop with Maria Moorhouse on Sunday.  I'm only sharing the ones which I came up with myself, not any that were Maria's designs, although I did copy a few of them.  I made four more which were direct copies of Maria's samples and I've already made a second one my Three Ships topper (see HERE).  I just need to mat them and attach them to suitably sized cards and I will have doubled my Christmas output so far this year lol.
Nothing to show on the other side of the desk today, as Eva was on a course in Birmingham yesterday.  However there are plenty more desks to see over on The Stamping Ground, where we all link up our blogs every Wednesday, thanks to our hostess Julia.

Christmas Card: I Saw Three Ships

I was lucky enough to attend a workshop at the weekend with Maria Moorhouse from Claritystamp.  We were making Christmas card toppers and she had over 20 ideas which she shared.  I decided to go off piste and came up with one of my own, using some of Maria's ideas as a starting point.  I liked this finished topper so much that I made a second one so that I could share a step by step with pictures.

A Quick But Classy Birthday Card

I needed a birthday card in a hurry but didn't want it to look as if it had been made in a rush.  By combining one stencil and one stamp set from Claritystamp,  I produced a card quickly,  but feel it still looks special.

Christmas Gift Tags from a Master Board

I decided to have a break from Christmas cards and instead create some gift tags (or perhaps mini Christmas cards).  I managed to create 12 toppers from one piece of  A4 card.

Mini Scenes on the Theme of 'F'

The prompt for the latest ATC swap over on JJAMMMA (Junk Journals and Mindful Mixed Media Art) is F.  I decided to go with F is for fence and foliage,  F is for family and F is for football fan.  I hope my partner likes them.  As always, I only used Claritystamp stamps for the project.

Christmas Card: Scene Within a Bauble

I haven't made that many Christmas cards yet,  so I bit the bullet and added another one to my stash.  I really enjoyed working with the combination of stencil inner, outer and mask to create a scene within a bauble.
