Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #183 Go Green

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi! back again to tell you that it's time for another challenge over
at Crafty Cardmakers.


  Judy is hosting today and our challenge is Go Green.

As usual you can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to be just cards, as long as it meets the challenge, and doesn't exceed the 15 total challenges entered rule! 

Hope you will join in.
And here is my project for the challenge:

 
I had some green patterned papers which I thought would work well for this design and as the Crafty Cardmaker's challenge this week is Go Green, it seemed like a good time to use it.

 
The sentiment inside is by Hobby Art Ltd.


 The Cat and Balloon dies are by Tim Holtz.


 
The chair stamp is by Art Impressions and the front sentiment by Honey Doo Crafts - Balloon Banner Words.
 The stitching stamp is by Crescendoh - Stitches and Dots. 
I completed the design with the addition of ribbon, pearl gems and stickles glitter glue on the cat's eyes.


I hope you will pop over to see what the rest of the DT have been up to and maybe join in the challenge.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with too.
 Happy crafty card making.

Friday Fun Day With Smiles.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Angela here again to show you what I've been up to this week though not a lot as I am still getting over that stinking cold and trying to catch-up with the jobs I didn't get done.
But I do have a few happy photos to show you.

These two little beauties, so sweet, you've got to love them.
You will recognise my pond in the background and I'm sure you know what these little beauties are.



The Legend of the Christmas Rose
 
According to legend, a young shepherdess named Madelon was tending her sheep one cold and wintry night.
As she watched over them, a group of wise men and other shepherds passed by,
bearing gifts for the newly born Jesus.
Madelon wept, because she had no gifts to bring the Newborn King, not even a simple flower....
An angel, upon hearing her weeping, appeared and brushed away the snow to
reveal a most beautiful white flower tipped with pink - the Christmas Rose.
 
That is such a sweet story I'm sure you will agree.
 
 
And so to our little friend Maisie.
I wonder what she is looking at!
I certainly don't think it's the flowers Lol!
I think she would like to go out and chase something.

 

And Rocky the robin is here too!
Not a brilliant photograph as I took it through the window and he was way down the garden but look at his face.... he knows we are watching him lol!


Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.
 
 
 And if you would like some more smiles you just need to pop over to see what our other friends have been doing this week at Annie's for
"This Week's Smiles" and you can also share your  smiles too.
 
Now I'm off to see what everyone's been up to.

Have a great weekend with lots more smiles.

WOYWW 403 # What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi Workdesk friends. 
Here we are for another Wednesday at the Workdesk. 
I am here again to show you:

"What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday".

If you don't know what this is all about then please visit the
 
Stamping Ground, our host Julia will explain.


So here is my desk for today!

I have cleared the exploding box though it's now filled up again!

 
Sorry it's difficult to see what I'm up to but the photograph below may give some idea.

 
I have stamped this on a sheet of card with clear embossing ink, overlapping the design so that it covers the A3 sheet completely and well....... you will just have to wait and see what comes next my friends!!!!

 So that's me done for today, nice and quick, just how we like it.

 Thanks for stopping by and hope you will pop over and join in the visits around the other desks.

 I'm off now to see what everyone else is up to.
Have a great woyww 
and 
happy crafting,

Masterboard Monday.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

I am here today to show you a card made with this Masterboard:


I've been playing with lots of Seth Apter goodies and some card that I coloured with mica spray inks.
The Masterboard was completed with various Seth Apter stencils and masks using Paper Artsy Grunge Paste and Prima Transparent 3D Matte Gel.
I then went over these areas with Distress Inks.

 
I so love these dies and used them to die cut some of the sprayed card to be used later on this project. 
 
Now I'm not sure what Seth will think of this but I wanted to make a background paper to match the dies I planned to use, so first thing was to make a mask using a Mylar sheet and the above die.
I then used this to mask the card and applied colour with Brilliance ink.

 
 
Finished design.

 
Cut this to size, inked the edges and started to mount the die cuts.
 
 
Then went on to position a small section of the Masterboard.
Before attaching this I distressed the long edges.


I started with the card this way up.

 
But then decided to add one of the words from a Seth Apter  stencil, so turned the card round though it would probably work the other way too.

 
To complete this design I splattered it with Pebeo Artist Marker and added some matching coloured pearls.
 
Of course I still have lots more Masterboard and patterned card just waiting to be made into something new, so see you soon.

I would love to hear your comments.
 
Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

Back to the Craft Barn - Bottled Up and Glazed Over.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi everyone just here to let you know this is another project for the Craft Barn and it would be great if you could pop over and take a look where you will find instructions for making.

Been working on a bottle using Stazon Glazes, shrink plastic and Tim Holtz stamps. Stamping on glass bottles is not so easy but I have a few tricks up my sleeve! If you would like to see how I decorated this then pop over to The Craft Barn for full details.



I would love to hear what you think about my project and any comments will be gratefully received.
Happy crafting, Angela xXx


If you would like to see the full details for making this          just pop over to The Craft Barn Blog where you will find full details.
 
Happy crafting,

Friday Fun Day With Smiles.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Angela here again to show you what I've been up to this week.

I'm back at the Gym now that my cold is starting to clear and trying to catch up with stuff though not many photos to show you other than these:

Two member of the family have been making the most of me not being so active.

This was a sunny morning but I'm not sure which day it was.
Anyway this is Maisie and Stan on the bed in the sun.

 
I think they just get too comfy!

 
Now we are downstairs and Stan is showing you how to recline on the sofa.
 
"Yes ladies and gentleman this is how you do it".
"I know this is how you do it cos. I've seen Him-In-Doors doing it Lol!"
 
Comfy or what!!!
 
 
Oh! is he waking up? No just dreaming Lol!
 
 
And Maisie's practising it too.
 
 
Obviously not quite comfy enough so will need to spread out a bit.
 
 
Now despite the fact that they take so much room up and definitely think they own the place, they make me smile all the time and hope they make you smile too.
 
 Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.
 
 And if you would like some more smiles you just need to pop over to see what our other friends have been doing this week at Annie's for
"This Week's Smiles" and you can also share your  smiles too.
