WOYWW #159 and misc. cards from the last week...

It's Wednesday again and I honestly thought I was doing pretty good, time wise, but the linky party Julia hosts over at Stamping Ground is already way past #150! Anyways, I have lots of pictures this week so here goes:
Shot of my desk this lovely evening...
 That's 3 stamps I made myself. The first one is from a TH bigshot die, which didn't go all the way through the stamp material but left a good enough impression I could cut it the rest of the way out. The other two pennants I eyeballed off a triangle tool from a math set. One is slightly bigger than the other so it should make an interesting stamp set.
 This is my new *favorite* stamp! I colored him myself. Obvious, huh? ;) I'm still learning about the watercolor pencils and all.
 Cowgirl card is for a super sweet local friend...she is so seems like no matter what trials she is going through she is still so encouraging and cheerful that the saying "Cowgirl Up" just suits her perfectly. She always cowgirl up's.
 Here are a few shots of a card I made for some brethren in my Church, but from my local congregation.

 I was playing with the lighting and fun effects. Kind of a cool picture, though. :)
Same thing, no filters. But these stamped and inked bottles are an embellishment I've been working on today. Next I wanted to share the amazing, and I am understating it, ATC's I feel so tickled to have received! There are just some tremendously talented people out there and I *know* some of them now! Eeeeee! :-D
  Dear Julia Dunnit sent this and it is so fun! It has all kinds of fun Britishy stuff collage style on it...I love it! :)
 Ever so talented Eliza at Queenartoypia. She made the ATC above and the postcard below.
 I really wish it was possible to capture the true colors! Eliza really did a fantastic job on these. :)
I have to say I was really kinda blown away when I opened the package by how awesome the above and below ones are! The pics don't even do them justice. Both were made by Lyndsey over at PlayTime for Mommyle. Isn't she talented?! I wish I could show the dimension in these! I also wish I knew how she made the bodice in front of the wings, but one thing I do know now is that I MUST have some seam binding! :)
Hope everyone has a lovely week crafting to your hearts content!

  14. The ATCs I've received have each been a mini lesson in technique of one sort or another, so I understand your glee! Love the bottle images, great job with them. Would it be wrong to suggest they would look marvellous stamped in dark ink on *one* odf your *few* patterned papers?!!!

    1. Yes, each ATC I received was so unique and used different techniques, really inspiring me to expand my horizons. :)

      Oooh, not wrong at all! In fact I think I'll try that tonight as it hadn't occurred to me yet! :)

      And it's not like I have a shortage of paper to try them out on, eh?! lol

  15. I LOVE your bottles!!! Fantastic!

    Thank you SO much for your beautiful ATC's and your lovely gift!!! I am looking forward to making something wonderful with your embossing folders!

    Have a wonderful week!

  16. Really cool stamps, especially a fan of that cute little garden gnome. :) And yes, I do make jewelry, you guessed it! Happy creating!
