It's Workdesk Wednesday!

Yep, it's hump day! Well, for me it's workdesk Wednesday.  I've been sharing my desk on Wednesdays for over 7 years, can you believe it!! Wow!  Anyway, this is my desk yesterday afternoon.

I was prepping for a FB Live video that I'll be doing at 10 am my time (Arizona).  I was shown a new (to me) fold called a Corner Flip fold and I decided to give it a try Live.  Yesterday I posted my first ever one and I loved how it turned out.  Anyway, my desk.  You can see stamps and the card base on my glass mat. Otherwise, my desk really needs to be tidied so I can finish prepping for my class of 12 ladies on Friday. Yes, 12.  I'm in shock because I usually only have about 6 so this will be quite the challenge! 

So today's post is pretty short but please head over to Julia's blog, the Stamping Ground, and check out the links to other deskers! You may even get to see some cool projects!

Corner Flip Card

At our monthly local stamp group meeting this past Saturday we were shown a new fold design and challenged to make one.  Rachel called it a Corner Flip Fold and it was so easy peasy!

I don't think I can really explain it here but we cut a corner out of the cover of a double sided folded card base. Huh, you say...

I think I'll be teaching this at one of my classes but to explain it, not so easy.  I used a piece of print card stock from my stash and one of my favorite floral stamp sets from Fun Stampers Journey.  After stamping the petals and center I added a bit more color using my Color Burst colored pencils.

Here's the inside.  You can see the corner that was flipped.  I haven't looked on Pinterest to see if there is anything like this. My friend Angie was at my house when I made this and she was surprised how fast this came together.

I'm getting close to having all 4 of my Birthday cards made for my February class!  Friday I made card 3 and even made a video of the making of it (see my YouTube channel, video dated Jan. 17).

I had to use my Scan 'N Cut for the big sentiment as I didn't have any dies that would work for this card.  But the class card will use a bright yellow instead of the white on this card. I basically just used white card stock to figure out what size I wanted.

 I used Fun Stampers Journey's Birthday Candles stamp set.  Funny that I couldn't get it to be added to my links below. The little sentiment comes from the small Letterboard Minis stamp set (it wouldn't show up either, weird).  The print paper is from my stash.

It's hard to tell but I used my Clear Wink of Stella Brush on the flame. It has a subtle glimmer. The heart embellishments are Rainbow Hearts.

I am now working hard on getting ready for this Friday's class as I now have a bakers dozen coming!!  Woo Hoo!

Late last week I got my Spellbinders Large and Small Die Sets of the Month. Yesterday I finally played with the Small Die set, Bold Love. The link and picture are on my Specials Page.

I think this turned out pretty good considering I have a head cold and thinking, being upright, and functioning are not happening as they should.

The LOVE die cut is cut out of a piece of print card stock from an old paper pack. I chose colors for the flowers and hearts from the bits and pieces of color in the print.

I cut oodles of itty bitty pieces of foam tape (squares) to pop up the die cut on the embossed light purple piece. A few pearl embellishments finished the card.

 Are you getting your Valentine cards made? My class next Friday is up to 12 gals! I'm prepping for a bakers dozen just in case.
