WOYWW - 705 - What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

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

Hi Workdesk friends. 
We are here for another Wednesday at the Workdesk and here is:
"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!

 
The desk might not look too untidy but I can tell you there's no where left to work so need a tidy up before I can move on.


The exploding box has had to be split into two for now. The stamp there is so pretty, by Kate Crane for Carabelle.

 
I'm still working on a few last minute C. cards (new masterboard), but then remembered some friends have their birthdays this month so had to stop and make Birthday cards. 
I think there should be a law that says you cannot have your birthday in the month of December just when everyone's busy thinking about Christmas cards!
 


Even this side of the desk is starting to look like a dumping ground.
 
 
Yes these are new dies, Christmas pressie from me to me Lol!

And these are going to be from my hubby though he doesn't know it yet!
I couldn't resist them as there was a good discount during Black Friday.

So that's me done for today, don't like to keep you all for too long.

 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 cards made with this Masterboard:

 
Stencilling, stamping and layering Oxide inks.

 

One of Tim Holtz stencils was used and I applied Vaseline (petroleum jelly) through the stencil onto card. When this is left for a while it seals the area where it's been placed on the card and works like a resist similar to the Tim Holtz Micro Glaze.

  

You can see here what happens when inks are applied as you get a ghosting effect.

 
I added more of the stencilling to gradually build up the design and then another green oxide. the inks were applied using ink blending tools.


It's quite a delicate finish but we've not done yet.


This time adding red Oxide ink through the stencil.

 
And as you can see here a sheet music script stamp.
 
 
Then it's just a matter of cutting it up to size and adding your chosen details. This is Memory Box 'Berry Corner Frame' and the snowflake dies are by Tim Holtz.
 
 
Layering everything up.
 
 
And with the addition of a few embellishments they are finished.
 
You may remember me making some of these last cards last week and if you would like more details you can find them here.

I would love to hear your comments.

Many thanks for stopping by and 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.

My main smile this week.

This was Saturday at the Craft Club. 

Last one before Christmas.

 
We were making Christmas Crackers.

 
 
We all had the same template but they were all quite different when finished.

 
I'm sure you'll agree they look brilliant.

 
We included our own gift, hat and Motto.

 
And of couse the snaps too.

 
How lovely are these.


This was my one above.

 
The template and cut out stage.

 
So much fun!


 
I even managed to have a messy desk here too Lol!

If you were around on Wednesday you will know that I've also spent some time in the cabin this week.
 
Been working with some resin.
 

And making Christmas cards and been to my mum's too.
 
Plenty of dog walking.
 
 And when you've finished that you will need a good rest!

 
And something comfy to rest your head on.

 
Lazy girl!
 
Not Schnauzer funnies today but funny just the same so I'm sure you'll like them.
 







 
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.

WOYWW - 704 - What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

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

Hi Workdesk friends. 
We are here for another Wednesday at the Workdesk and here is:
"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!

 
Yes I'm back in the cabin. 
I've been working with resin again, it's a good rest from the C. Cards.

 
The little guy sitting on the top of the mould is a baby dragon. The other moulds are in the middle of being casted. 
You can just see some moulds in the background that are coasters and another baby dragon, it is casted in two parts and then joined together when set.
On the left is a jar of small shells that I'm using in the moulds at the front.
 
 
I've been making some ring holders for Christmas presents with shells and jelly fish. This is one of the smaller ones.

 
Here is a collection of some of the items used in the moulding. Shells, Glitter, sand and artificial seaweed.

 
I remembered when I was in the cabin that I said I would get out my collection of Clarity stamps to show Sarah (at Sarah's Craft Shed) so here they are. Too many stamps that have been hidden away for far too long!
 

Yes there are two big boxes full.
 
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,

Masterboard Monday Use it or Lose it.

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

I am here today to show you a card made with these practice pieces:

If you were around a couple of weeks ago on a Wednesday you will have already seen these.
 
 
I was playing with some colours including the new Tim Holtz Lumbetrjack Plaid. Gorgeous red. 
After applying the ink to the craft mat I sprayed them with water and just covered the ink with an A3 sheet of card without moving it too much keeping the individual colours clean then removed the card and sprayed the remaining ink with water again .......

 
then took an A4 sheet of card and pulled of the remaining inks.
Now we can't just waste these lovely sheets of card so they had to be used as backgrounds for some Christmas cards.
 
 
I do like to batch make Christmasd cards though it's not something I would usually do.
 


I've used lots of die cut snowflakes left over from last year and some white card and sentiment stamps.
 
 
 
I stamped sentiments on the white card and then embossed them with a snowflake embossing folder. Rubbed over this with a lightly covered blending tool and layered everything to create these finished cards.
 
Hope you like them.
You can get a lot of cards from these two sheets of card so great for Christmas batch making.

I would love to hear your comments.

Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,
