WOYWW #211

Hi everyone and welcome…
it’s Wednesday once again (don't they come round quickly) which means thanks to the lovely Julia at THE STAMPING GROUND we go blog hopping around the world to see what you have on your desk.
To join in the WOYWW fun aka 'Whats on your work-desk Wednesday' check out the info over at Julia’s place.

So whats on my desk today? it's fairly tidy as just finished making a wedding card and also a birthday card for an eleven year old boy. Males are always hard to think of ideas for and for an eleven year old even more so - ahhh panic!
I wasn't happy with the one I'd previously made with a design of London, woke up early thinking about it so got up (at 5.30am yawn) to make another.
Desk also shows what I did with some excess rubber.



 
 
Printed out letters with black lines around edges onto card, which I made using Craft Artist software. Then stamped over top of each letter using black archival ink and sport theme mini stamps by Hero Arts and coloured with Inktense pencils.
Used See D's birthday stamp for a border and added some random splodges of Inktense pencils paint also.

 
 
 
cut off some excess rubber from a stamp and wondered if I could use it for anything.
So on two pieces I punched random holes and on the other I painted some structure gel.
Quite like the effects it produced when stamped, the picture not showing the one with the structure gel very well as it was more delicate. Going to have a play with some fun foam next.
 
 
OK that's my lot for now. Will try to visit as many desks as possible next.
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day... Gill x

  2. That's a furbulous card, and the excess rubber turned into funky stamps is genius. Thanks for visiting the bears already today.

  7. Hi Gill! Great card - perfect for an 11 year old! Brilliant idea for re-using your rubber scraps - would work really well on a journal page background. Deeply regretting throwing away the last lot of rubber off cuts I had! Thanks for your visit, have a creative week MMx

  8. Must keep a note of this page as you have given me some great ideas - thanks so much. Have to do a card for an 11 year old - this is perfect - and I was stuck! Love the punched hole idea, now where is that rubber of mine and guess what? I have those cd staps and never use them - now where did I put them?
    Thanks for visiting me earlier and providing me with all this inspiration - Hugs, Neet 16 xx

  16. Hi Gill - gorgeous card! It is a great idea as you can fill in the letters with whatever a person likes - cool. I love the rubber stamp with the holes - great for texture. Reminds me of the holey cheese! Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 78

  19. Hi Gill
    great card for an 11yr old boy what a fantastic idea. I am doing a little happy dance, why because you have played with your structure gel and you have even made holes in some stamp waste, you rock!
    Hope you have a great week, I look forward to catching up with you soon

  20. Great idea with the hole punch and structure gel - works so well! What is it about men and boys that makes us awaken early to re-design..you are so not alone! Turned out great though I have to say, love Kyle's card!

  22. Hi Gill
    Lovely colourful birthday card, I am sure the young man receiving it will love it too, the inktense pencils are fab arn't they?. Great idea to use your left over rubber, I love how delicate that one is with the structure paste giving a soft crackle effect. Hugs Mo x

  23. Great card! Love the edging on it. What a cool idea for that excess rubber. I'll have to remember to save such next time I'm cutting a plate of stamps. Happy WOYWW! Nan G #3

  24. That's a brilliant card for a boy, funny how the best ideas always come along at odd times of the day (or night!).. Love the Craft Artist software, it's solved lots of problems for me.
    Happy (late) WOYWW. Pam#38

  25. Isn't it great when you find a good use for that excess rubber that would normally go in the trash? It's hard to make cards for guys of any age, but you hit this one out of the park. Fantastic card. Have a great slightly late WOYWW from #17.
