WOYWW - First DT projects

I was full of good intentions for today - I've got a few days off work and the plan was to be up bright and early to catch the beginning of the WOYWW list and then get on with the samples for my first Stamp Addicts Design Team job....but here I am at 12.30pm, having had a lie in, pottered around doing a bit of nothing wondering where the morning went! I am very excited though,  having been chosen to be on the Design Team for Stamp Addicts a couple of months ago I have been eagerly looking forward to my first job and it came in the shape of some beautiful stamps which will feature on a new show going out on Create and Craft on Jan 7th @2.00pm. (You can see a preview of the stamps here - they are gorgeous!) So my desk this week basically contains work in progress for that.
And below is a finished card - I created a background with the music score stamp by stamping in Bundled Sage Distress ink, clear embossing, then applying more Distress Inks over the top (pumice stone, peeled paint and Frayed burlap). I created the corner collage of images by stamping and masking - I stamped the bust first (is that Beethoven?), masked him, stamped the violin and piano keys over the top, masked both of them and stamped the music score over the whole lot. I then applied Distress inks before removing the masks. 
Although this wasn't made with challenges in mind, it does fit a couple so am going to enter it over at Allsorts - Anything Goes , Simon says Stamp and Show - Yesteryear and Sunday Stampers - music.

To join in with WOYWW just head over to The Stamping Ground, run by the delightful Julia and get snooping  sharing !

I hope eveyone had a great Christmas and wish you all a very Happy and Creative New Year, Esther xx


  1. Congratulations on being part of the Stamp Addicts DT. You deserve it. You stamp SO WELL. And you are right. These stamps are drop dead gorgeous, especially the music set.

    I hope you had a great Christmas. Little did I know when I left suddenly last Wednesday that I would not have access to the internet. I didn't even get to wish you a Merry Christmas, after all the wonderful and heart felt comments you have left me over the past few weeks. They were certainly appreciated even when I had no time to reciprocate. I wish you the best in your new DT position in 2011. Have a safe and joyous New Year, dear friend (#2).

  2. Congrats on the DT, your sneak peek looks interesting as does your card x
    Happy WOYWW and wishing you a very happy new year x

  3. Well done on the DT - I love the card, so nice to see some musical influences. Yes, I think that's Beethoven! And it's brilliant.

    Happy New Year to you.

  4. Congratulations on the DT! Love your work desk because you have so many WIPS going on there :)

    I'm #20 on the WOYWW list this week. Stop by when you get a chance.

    And a Happy *almost* New Year to you!!

  5. Big congratulations for being a DT member at Stamp Addicts! Your card is fabulous and I can see why they selected you!

  6. Hi there Esther

    Lovely to have you on the SA team and be working with you. Apols about the following which speaks for itself...........

    I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response - over 600 so far !

    I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

    Wishing you a very Happy New Year.

  13. Congratulations on your new calling! The card is absolutely gorgeous. You should be proud. I think you deserved to sleep in!
