WOYWW #230 - New Stamps and Envelope Punch Board

Hi, guys!  Today is Wednesday, so that means I am sharing what is on my work desk with you!  Thank you to Julia for the desk-hopping fun!   Today I have a new gadget on my desk: an envelope punch board.  I am looking forward to making some envelopes to match my cards.  I understand this tool will make it easy to do.  I currently use templates to do it, but don't make them that often. I wanted something faster.


I also have a new set of stamps on the desk by Hero Arts.  It is not my usual style, but this brush strokes stamp set looks like a lot of fun to work with.

Looking forward to visiting with you today!  If you haven't hopped along, I suggest you give it a try! Lots of fun desks to visit and wonderful people to "meet."

Until next time!

I have those stamps and I must admit they are quite useful! I also have the envelop punch board but I haven't used it much, maybe I will for my Christmas cards!
Enjoy your new toys! :-)
Lots of hugs,

I've seen a lot of people on SCS talking about the envelope score board- now I know what it looks like. I like the look of that stamp set, there appear to be some very useful stamps on it. Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #56 xx

I've seen the envelope board in action, it looks very useful if you need lots of custom envies. Jennifer McGuire has made quite a few cards with the brushstroke stamp set if you're looking for ideas. :-)

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and for the nice comments.

Happy Woyww,

New toys! How fun! I noticed they have one that makes pillow boxes, which I thought would be cool, seeing as I can't get my Cricut to cut and score them correctly! lol

The envelope maker sounds great. Cards with matching envelopes will add an extra special touch. Thanks for visiting us already today. :)

I love that envelope punch board, my last post was on how to use it to make a liner. I am working on posting a video in the next few days of how to make a gift card using it, my first one is sitting on my desk on today's post...it was my first run through. Love Love Love that Envelope Punch Board....wish I had bought the Stampen up one though...I think I am going to sell mine on ebay after I order a new one..kinda disgusted with WeRMemory Makers sending theirs out with bad sizes on them...so if you have not purchased yet, find a stampen up one.

Have a wonderful week playing with it!

Hi Winnie Thanks for stopping by Sparks of Art! Aahh Donny Osmond my teenage crush and he still is. I am 51 and have seen him 3 times and sobbed uncontrollably when he sang Puppy Love! I was transported right back to those dizzy teenage days.
Have a happy week

Wow! Love the look of those stamps! I'm off to find them as they look like they would be great for mixed media. I too just got the envelope punch board...I'll use it to make mini album pages. Thanks for the earlier visit! Happy WOYWW! Nan G #6

I have that punchboard too Winnie! I haven't had a chance to play with it as much as I've liked but I've seen a lot of great tutorials out there for it! Can't wait to see your creations using it. Hope you and your family have a wonderful Halloween! :)

Oh I do love the look of that tool! I am forever pulling out a card, trying to find a matching envelope, finding it all creased and stained from rubbing up agains some OTHER inky painty card and this would be a lot easier than templates or that horrid pink tool. Off for a good google and You Tube browse to see it in action....

Busy with DS's visit yesterday so Happy (late) WOYWW!
