WOYWW 515 # 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! Well actually not! but I knew you would want to see what I brought back with me from the Newark Craft Show.


Woodware, Visible Image stamps and other things too like a couple of dies, tags and gel plates.


I know how much some of you liked the card I made with the last Woodware stamp so I've got another in a similar style.


 Strictly speaking this is the desk today.


Now it's almost tidy.
The turquoise coloured thing on the left is a kitchen scrubby but great for cleaning stamps too. 
That butterfly stamp is still hanging around on the right and the little metal tub below it is full of small stampbord pieces but no idea yet what I intend using them for. 
The paper on the desk is made with bits of left over masterboard that I have woven and attached together and do you know what! I have no idea yet what I will use it for.
And finally the exploding box is filling up again!

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 and a MIni Wallet file.

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

I am here today to show you a project made with this Masterboard:
Not strictly a Masterboard. 
This was left over when I used several similar sheets to create some Halloween Masterboards.

The paper was coloured using Distress Inks not Oxides by applying the ink to a craft mat, spray with water and pull the paper over it. I wanted this to be fairly pale so added more water than usual to create a good background to stamp on.



Today's project is a mini wallet book.
Before starting I warn you this is quite a long tutorial but if you want to make a wallet book then you will want to read this.



I start by getting three 12"x 12" pieces of card scored and trimmed.

Next we need two pieces measuring 12"x 4" for the side flaps.


And two pieces to use as flaps.

I like to edge all round the wallet with silver ink.
No need to be too careful as most of it will not be seen, just the edges.

And we're ready for construction.


I used 7 Gypsies papers to decorate the pages.


I like to position all the pieces before attaching them to ensure I have them all and know where they are going.



These papers are lovely and grungy but I added a little extra texture with the use of some white embossing powder and then added some lace paper doilies.


You can see here how I used the masterboard to stamp the sentiments.


Which fit really nicely into the pockets I've made.


A few more photographs of the finished Book and I will leave you in peace.



You can see here one of the side pocket flaps where the 12"x 4" pieces were attached.


Artist trading cards were made from some left-over pieces as was the belly band that holds them.

When everything is completed it's time to add the embellishments. I use enamel dots to finish this off.

Back.


Front.

 


Close-up of the Tim Holtz moth die cut.


A pretty metal embellishment and Dew Drops.





For this project I used the following materials and equipment.

 Tim Holtz: Tag Dies. Paper Artsy: Eclectica - Alison Bomber Sentiment stamps 2 and 3. 7Gypsies: 8"x8" paper pad. 3 sheets of 12"x12" black card about 250gsm. Ranger: Thinlits Geo Insects. Stickles Glitter Glue-Silver. Stazon Metalic Ink. Inkylicious: Clear Dewdrops. Papermania: Lace Paper. Tombow glue. Altenew Enamel dots, magnets. 

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 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.




Washing! well not quite.


Tea!
You could drink this while doing the washing or you can put it into the water in the sink which is much more fun Lol!


Which is exactly what I did.
Life has been getting in the way of messy crafting but I decided it was time to play.


I need to dry all this and then I'll get back to you for the next exciting instalment of 'How to use those out-of-date tea bags'.



 These two were obviously neither interested or impressed with my plans for this and went to sleep.
Oh well I will just have to play on my own Lol!


Just to finish off, more gorgeous cakes and goodies.


Took mum out again this week and called in for lunch and of course lots of the cakes and desserts this week have an Easter theme.



I think this one looks lush! and very naughty! but clever and could be a great idea for a card!



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 514 # 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!



Things have been a bit hectic this week and I almost forgot it 's Wednesday but here now.
You can probably see everything is just left waiting for me to do something. The dies are by Lavinia Stamps which I'm just getting ready to use.

And in case you missed it here is the card from last week.


And there's info of how I made it here

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.

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge Blog - 231 Easter.

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.


Mary is hosting today and our challenge is  Easter.

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:


I always have some A4 sheets of paper that I use as mop up cloths when I'm applying ink or paint to my Masterboards and decided to use this one to stamp on.


I used Black Archival ink and then clear embossing powder and heat embossed the design.


This will need trimming later.


The stamp set also comes with some separate leaves and I used these to decorate the edge of a square card blank (6"x 6").


I continued the design onto the back of the card,


 stamped the Easter greeting and layered the design with a black card finishing with yellow gems.


And stamped the inside too.
Nearly forgot to say this stamp set is by Woodware.

So that's your lot!

 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 Easter crafting
Angela xXx

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

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 mostly these are photographs from last last Saturday when I spent a great day at the Craft Club with Martine Smith.
Martine makes samples for John Next Door at the moment so you may have seen her work before.


Here I am with my little gang. That's me nearest to you, sorry I have my back to you but we didn't know we were being photographed.


And as you can see there were quite a few people there.


And a few samples of the projects we made.


Pretty or what?


Now I realise you may be thinking this is not my sort of thing but it's nice to do something different occasionally.


I love the background technique we used here on textured card.


These flowers are so pretty.





 A little shopping made the day even better Lol!


Other than that I also went walking again with friends. 


We had a lovely day and of course managed to find somewhere to stop off for a little snack. 


And more food! Took my mum to The Handmade Burger cafe at Meadow Hall. She loves it here as they make real chips and although they are not my thing they do look good.
Like many of the restaurants in Meadowhall they were designed in a way in memory of Sheffield's steal industry with metallic walls and dim lights.

So that's it for today.

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.
