Quarantine Quickies #71 & #72: Picture Perfect / Desert Island

These two were probably the quickest tags to come together in my Quarantine Quickies journal.  They also completed my second book ring of pages.  Following the prompts on Mission Inspiration and using Clarity stamps, dies and stencils as always.

In the Garden - Garden Swing Card with Large Frame

The 'In the Garden' Groovi plates, designed by Linda Williams, have been made into stamps.  I was lucky enough to have a chance to play with some of the new sets.  This is the sample I made with the Garden Swing stamps and mask.

Fusible Fibre Corset Birthday Card

These newly configured and extended Corset stamps from Clarity were crying out to be used with fusible fibres.  I also had some shaving foam marbled backgrounds that I thought would combine well with them.  This is the result.

Uplifting Card using Ocean Swirls Texture Stamps

Sometimes you just want an uplifting card to send to someone to cheer them up or to show support.  I simply used the Ocean Swirls Texture stamps to create a backdrop to Barbara's motivational word stickers from Claritystamp.

Watercolour Flower Wreath With Love & Best Wishes

When I want to create a watercolour effect, but still use a stamp as a starting point, I use a Distress Oxide for the stamping, usually Antique Linen or Tattered Rose.  I used this technique to create the delicate wreath of flowers on this card.

WOYWW 578: Three Weeks To Go

Wednesdays seem to come round quickly, yet the week seems to have crawled by as well.  Welcome to my weekly desk share in accordance with WOYWW (What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday). I shall be linking up with Julia and everyone else at the Stamping Ground as usual.
When I took this photo yesterday, I had lots of good intentions.  I have the materials pack for stamp class 3 from Maria Moorhouse out as I hadn't started any of the four projects this month and also some tags, as I haven't added to my latest ring journal since last week.  However, apart from watching Barbara Gray in the SHAC shack, I did little crafting yesterday and in fact haven't done much in a week.  Somehow, being in school seems to have drained my mojo.  Luckily, I have enough blog projects to keep me posting until the end of term.
I should have been in Berlin this week with Y8 pupils and sharing photos of the zoo and other places.  Perhaps that's why I feel so flat.  A shout out to all the Y7 and Y8 who aren't in school at the moment.
I'll leave you with some photos from last year's trip and the one set of tags which represent the only crafting that I have managed this week.

Stay safe everyone.  Happy WOYWW to you all.  I shall get round to visiting by the weekend I am sure, I managed it last week.
