WOYWW - Sneaky Preview and a Couple of Pressies

 This is a sneaky preview of my lead DT offering for The Stampman Challenge this time. The theme is "Anything Goes" so I did NOT choose crimble this time, but something more romantic!!!  Sorry the picture is so fuzzy!!! Below are some of the stamps I used, mostly Aspects of Design 1... I LOVE the net you can just spy here... The tag will be posted Friday, if you are interested to see the whole thing!!??

 I LOVE this lady too, I think she is from a Nonsequitur plate from Jill. As always, here are my distress inks with their new pads for distressing edges etc... it's working well as a system, when I can find the right one... got to think of storage now... any ideas guys???

 Been making some more of those key/handbag fob/charms... for my hairdresser, nails girls and daughter's bloke's two children... oozy technique here on the heart, through the punchinella... The amber pendant is UTEE.

 Here are more, draped over a convenient bottle with another oozy heart, this time through angelina fibres!!! I am loving friendly plastic at the moment. Here is also another hint at the DT tag, right at the front - I have done some decoupage...

Here is another friendly plastic piece with some cool flowers, and the hint of another technique I have been trying out - see that silver and copper swirly "bead", well that's done in wire with my new twirler!!! Still mastering that one!!! I did my wire winding by hansd until very recently when I treated myself to the little machine...


More flowers on this one, and hand-made, clay beads in a soft pink for the boyfriend's daughter. There is a horse charm on here too, as she rides...

This last one is done in ep and uses the Elusive Images feather from the peacock plate. I want to say how sad I am at the demise of Graphicus, as I admire Glenda immensely and the designs they come up with... had a fantastic weekend recently which was very inspiring... let's hope they rise like the Phoenix...

So my desk is quite busy this week and will be more so as I have 2 birthday cards to make and a set of drawers to decorate... well the cards are a MUST but the drawers might wait till after crimble!!! Depends how much I can summon up from the depths... Thanks for all your well wishes last week about my SAD... shortest day coming up, hurrah!!! Thanks for looking and please visit the ineffable Julia's blog if you are wondering what on earth I am on about!!!

Love all the charms! Sorry no solution for storage. I have a similar issue.

Your key charms are beautiful; I think they would have to hang on a bag, as they are too gorgeous to be stowed away in the depths of its pockets. Loving the puffy beads.

I love, love, love, love those key fobs/chains, whatever. They are beautiful and I love them. Did I mention that? I've never played with friendly plastic. I sure like how you used yours (#4).

Love the tag Frankie, I popped over to The Stamps Man blog to have a loot. Great bag/key chains, absolutely fantastic, what great stocking stuffers they'd make!

Love all the charms, I bet they will be thrilled with them. If you find a storage idea for the foam and pads I would be interested as well, just started my distress inks collection but finding storing the inks and pads together a problem.

Sherry Goodloe said...

Soooo love your charms! Nice storage ideas too :)
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to you. Stop by when you get a chance. I'm #85 this week.
