WOYWW – 13/10/2010


I wish I could say that my desk was as clean as last week but it isn’t so! Check out Julia’s blog for more inspirational workdesks every Wednesday!

I’ve found a fun stamp company called Smeared Ink – it nearly appeals to me as much as the Stampotique ones. The images are a bit fun and a bit funky, very gothic and slightly creepy. Here is a card I made from a set called Nevermore. I got them from Make the Day Special here in the UK.

and here is another one, using one of the images and an image from a Corpse Bride colouring book online. The saying is a quote from the movie.  Not sure who I would send it to, but hey-ho!

I found another cool set of digi-stamps too but I think I’ll save that one for my Sunday-someplace-else!

Now all the kerfuffle is out of the way I will def. plan on getting around to the desks I missed out last week.  I felt all out of sorts not getting my weekly hit of inspiration!

  2. What a great stamp company! Thanks for the heads up. Cards are fab as well and I think a clean desk is a sign of an absent muse. 😉 Cheers!

  3. Oh wow – am I glad I stopped by your blog today! Those stamps are fab, so thanks for the hint! I’ve been looking for a decent raven stamp and they have just what I’m after. 😉 I’d have the card!

  4. Lovely stamps and oh my that card! Love the raven with the bright tulip. TFS!

  6. Love the new stamps very quirky! But I can see your dilemma with the last card! Perhaps you need to make some enemies, then you can send them a card!!

  13. Your cards put a smile on my face, and that’s a good thing! Certainly slightly creepy images, though, but love them.

  14. Love the card with the raven and the rose, the other one with the pulse quote… hmmm, not sure who you could send that too either, but its so unusual it would be a shame to just add it to a pile so maybe frame it?

  15. Great stamps. Great cards
