I'm Flipping on My Desk

Yep, I've been making Flip-It cards on my desk.  Catchy title, ya think?  Today is Wednesday again.  A great day as we're supposed to get some rain but to cloudy to see the Blood Moon.  Oh well.  If you are curious as to why I'm showing you my desk please click on the WOYWW (What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday) logo in the sidebar and it's supposed to open a new window to the Stamping Ground blog's explanation.  I love seeing other crafters desks and I get the opportunity to show you mine!

I just finished a card similar to the one I'm showing you today.  These 2 cards are 2 of 4 card samples for a proposed class in November at the AZ Scrapbooking store in Green Valley, AZ.  You can see some of the paper I'm using on the far left and the plastic envy holding the Sizzix Square Flip-Its dies.  Then clear rhinestones in the little box just to the left of my scrap paper covered Scor-Pal.  There are scissors, my ATG adhesive gun, foam mounting tape and all kinds of stuff.  I just recently replaced the bulb in my OTT light and it's being a bit obstinate in lighting when turned on but it gets there.  I am showing you my desk chair covered with my die-holding case covered with a pencil box of kits and stamps for my "Down at the Pumpkin Patch" class kits.  Usually everything is on my desk but it overflowed this time.

This is the 2nd card I made using this die set.  If you want to see my snowflake one you'll have to go back one post.  I was excited to get my hands on this die as I ordered a similar one earlier this year but kept getting a back order notice.  I found this one at Michaels craft store last Friday and did have my 40% off coupon so got it for about $20.00.

Here is the card "flipped".  When closed like the first picture it is 4 1/4" wide by 5 1/2" high, standard A2 size.  When open it's 5 3/4" wide.  Since this will be the first card of the 4 in the class I start with real easy.

And yes, there is bling.  I added some Stardust Clear Gel pen to the small tree on the front.  Pretty cool! I'm using paper from Bella Blvd. from their Christmas Cheer collection.

So now pop over to the Stamping Ground and check out the other desks.  I'll be staying home today so I hope to visit many.  Be prepared to spend some time!
