Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 214 - 'Wet/Dry Embossing'.

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.


  Peggy is hosting today and our challenge is 'Wet/Dry Embossing'.


As usual you can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to be cards, as long as it meets the challenge. 

Hope you will join in.
And here is my project for the challenge just to get you in the mood:


 
Using a variety of Distress Oxide inks and Water Colour paper to create the background.
 
 
I stamped the Imagination Crafts stamp onto one section of this to create the main image.
If you heat from the front as I have done here you will get a nice textured finish. If you prefer the finish smooth then heat from the back.



 
Dry embossing next using an embossing folder by Crafters Companion.

 
Rub over this gently with an abrasive cloth or light sandpaper to distress it and bring out the design.

 
Trim to size ready to distress the edge.


 
Now everything is ready to put together.
 
I used a black card blank for this as I thought it would make the focal image stand out more.
Edge the large section of Oxide card with a matching colour.
The stamped image was layered with both pink and black card and the design completed with black gems and bow.
The sentiment was also layered the same way and the stamp is by Altenew.
 


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.

We saw this at the garden centre and might just have to try it myself Lol!
 
How brilliant is this!

 
Love it!


 
Walking along part of the Viking Way Thursday, what a view.

 
And stopped off at the public Orchard, it's big!


I have some sad news that the swans have lost one of their cygnets so not really good for a fun day I'm afraid but wanted to share this with you.

 
The baby was taken by one of the Pikes in the lake. It seems almost unbelievable but some of the ladies who walk their dogs were there when it happened.
Lets hope this baby remains safe.


 
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.

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:

 
Though it was originally just a mop up card, rather than waste the ink I mopped it up with an A4 sheet of craft card that just happened to be around at the time.

 
I started by cutting a piece to fit a 6x6 card blank and then die cutting the corners.

 
I used a piece of this patterned paper to create the background layer.

 
I used one of the new Tim Holtz 3D embossing folders on the centre of the craft card and rubbed over the design with distress ink on a blending tool and then added a little Stickles Glitter Glue when it was dry.
The die cut sections were attached leaving some of the inner gears loose so that they could stand up a little but flatten to go in an envelope.
 
 
To complete the design I added some Tim Holtz die cut gears, black gems, copper gears and a text stamped tag finished with green ribbon.

 
All finished ready for my father's birthday, just hope he likes it.
 
I would love to hear your comments.
 
Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

WOYWW 470 # 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.


Before I show you my desk today many of my dear friends were interested in the ATC wallet that I showed you last week but hadn't got the die to make the pockets so I have found a website that has a free template which would make the same sort of thing and you can find it here.
You could keep the top flap or cut it off as I did.
Hope that might prove useful and if you still need it the tutorial for making is here.
This is not unique and there are similar wallets to be found on Pinterest and YouTube.

Other than that, back to my desk.

I probably should be feeling guilty but I'm not Lol!

 
My desk is just covered by the nice things that I got at Stamp Magic on Sunday, other than that I've not done much as life has got in the way a bit recently.
As they say that's life but I managed to escape to Doncaster on Sunday and these things have cheered me up so that's good.

 
Mostly stamps and stencils.
There is a half made card on the left which hopefully will be my dad's birthday card....we'll see!

 
So that's me done for today.

 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,

Angela x
