Crafty cardmakers Challenge - Halloween.

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.

Glenda is hosting today and our challenge is Halloween.

As usual you can enter anything you fancy, not just cards as long as it meets the challenge theme and doesn't exceed the 15 total challenges entered rule.

Hope you will join in.
And here is my project for the challenge:
 
When making this card I had a look through my left over Masterboards and found this:
 
 
Now I thought this might be good as the base for my Halloween card.
 
So I cut a piece to fit a 7"X 7" card and this is where we ended up.

 
I stamped and heat embossed the spiders web onto acetate.
After attaching Tim Holtz die cut spider, bats, text and metal spider, I
completed it by adding the black brads, layering it with red and white card and attached it to a black card blank.


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.

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 had a great time at Newark last Saturday and Sunday.
On Saturday I went to a great workshop organised by Oyster Stamps.

Iliana from Sweet Petunia gave a great workshop using the Misti stamping tool, not only that but we received a free goody bag! and free stamps.
The workshops that Oyster organise are always good value and it's so nice to have other people to craft with.

So here goes a few photos from the day.

 
This is Iliana who invented the Misti.


 And the lovely Barbara.

 
My desk for the day. 
 
 
Misti in action and yes it should be pink but the sun has faded mine not that it makes any difference to the way it performs.


 

 All done and ready for colouring in.

 
This was just another way to use the Misti.


Wonder if you know who this lady is???
Some of you will know here by all the gorgeous die cuts she uses on her cards.

 
Then we went on to using the corners.


Sample cards using the techniques:
 
 On Sunday I went back for the sales day.
 
 I so love this company from Scotland, Stampers Grove.
They just sell all the stuff I love and it's well worth having a look at them on line here.
 
 

 Ooooh...Paper Artsy stamps...lovely!

 
Loving the sample cards too.

 
Hope to see them again sometime.

 
Of course I managed to buy a few things elsewhere too Lol!
Now all that has got to make you smile, it did me!
 
And this Sunday I'm off to the Doncaster Dome for another craft show, can't wait!
 
Hope you have a great weekend too and
 thanks for stopping by.
 
By the way did you guess who my crafty friend was?
Her blog is here:
If you guessed you will already know what great cards she makes and if you didn't you are in for a treat!
 
 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.

WOYWW 436 # 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!
 

Just not got round to putting everything away after my workshop and shopping at the weekend.

So here are the things I bought on Sunday:

 
 
 
The stamp freebies from the Misti workshop on Saturday:
 
 
Cards we made at the workshop.

 
My winnings from The Artisitic Stamper Challenge arrived this week too.
 
 
A few cards I made with this Masterboard which you may have seen last week.
 
 
 
This close-up reveals the Sparkle Mod Podge I used to seal the surface.
 
 
And I'm making some smaller cards too.
Not quite finished but thought you'd like to see what I'm up to.
 
 
And I still have this piece left to use.
 
 
Oh and if you didn't get chance to see it, I also posted this card during the week.
 
 
Now that's far too many photographs so I had better go before I get told off  Lol!
 
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 my new Masterboard:

Sorry  this is not easy to see but all will be revealed soon.

 
Tim Holtz stencil and Prima 3D gel.
 
 
 More stencilling and it's ready for the Oxides.
A little more stencilling (Art from the Heart) on the top too.

 
 
Same stencil but this time using the Distress Oxides.

 
 Then finished it off with some Text stamping and I think that should do, oh! and sealed it with Mod Podge Sparkle.
 
 
And the cards so far:
CAS with the addition of some Tim Holtz dies cuts and a sentiment.

 
Cards like this make good use of an A3 Masterboard and don't need a lot more detail.
 
You might have guessed that the cards are on top of a new Masterboard.
All will be revealed there soon.
 
Hope you enjoyed watching me make this.

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

Friday Fun Day.

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 have spent some time in the park.

Looks like there may be fairies in there again!

 
Fly Agaric

 
These are just starting to appear this week.



The swans were having a family trip round the lake.
Dad seems to have got over having the tag attached.
He has gone back to his favourite pastime of chasing the geese.
 
And in the garden too though there are still jobs to be done so hoping for some nice weather.
 
More fungus, this time found this one in the garden.


As it was covered in grass when I found it I wasn't quite sure at first what it was.

 
It's quite a big mushroom but not sure what it's name is.


 
And the grapes are doing well though not very big.

 
Quite pleased with them.
 
This bunch had a tiny snail attached. He was so cute!


The Hydrangeas are drying up but still have lovely colours.

 
Not sure what made this hole under the fence but I suspect it is a small rodent.
 
 
Garden looking good and pretty tidy.

 
Fish doing well.
 


 
So that's it really.
 
Off to Newark this weekend.
Workshop Saturday and the craft show Sunday so looking forward to that.

Hope you have a great weekend too 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.
