Happy Wednesday! This is WOYWW day. It all starts at Julia's blog over at Stamping Ground. Take a look at all the creative desks from all over the Globe! Some are neat, some not so neat -- each and every one full of inspiration!
A confession. I get distracted easily. In order to get to some of my stamping supplies I had to first remove a pile of stuff out of my craft closet. Oh my - look at this -- oh wow, I forgot I have this... I wonder what I was going to do with that..... you get the idea? It has been a while since I've made any cards. Yes, I got out of practice - need to find the groove again.
I'm not going to even try to list everything on my desk (round kitchen table). Just take a look at all this stuff! Yikes.
Based on my inspiration (see last post) I made an ATC (the first project) and one card. I've started on another card and so far I like how it's looking. The ATC is made on a piece of burlap. I stamped the Eiffel Tower using a brown ink and bronze embossing powder. Then I stamped the flowery stamp using pink ink and sprinkled glitter on it. The pink dots on the left are glitter glue. Added a bit of the green lace at the bottom and I'm done!

Next the card. I used an off white card as the base then added some green mesh for a little dimension. I stamped the Eiffel Tower on an old french book page using the pink ink. The squarish things spell merci. Added the light pink studs in the four corners and that's that.
|Oops - the Eiffel Tower is not quite centered on the mesh|
This is the second card that I've started. I used the same off-white card and them added some TH distress ink. I don't know how to use that stuff.... I may add some more color to different parts of the card so it'll have some depth. Added some green lace and some sequins to the bottom of the card. So far so good.

I had my eyes dilated today so the photos may be blurry - does that make sense?
As always, I'll visit those that end in the same number as me and also those that leave comments (please leave your number so I'll be able to find you). After that then I visit as many others as I have time.
