Crafty Cardmakers Challenge # 241 - Autum Colours.

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.

Marg is hosting today and our challenge is  Autumn Colours.

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:



If you look closely you might even recognise some of the papers as they are all bits of left-over Masterboard that I've used before just perfect for die cutting these Tim Holtz leaves.


I always admire people who make CAS cards as I think it's one of the most difficult styles to make them look complete and generally when I do them I feel there is something missing but this card worked for me....than goodness!



So I took the left-over Masterboards and die cut them using a Tim Holtz die then positioned then and put a piece of Press and Seal over the top to stop them moving.


Then placed the frame dies in position.


Die cut the sections


Then remove the centre. This can be kept for use on another card.


Keeping the dies in position I placed the design onto the card blank and then into my Misti. Next arrange the sentiment stamp.


Then stamp onto the card blank.


Turn the design over and attach the sticky dots and remove the backings.


Attach the whole design to the card blank and remove the Press and Seal.


I added some Peel Off stickers to complete the design.


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 recently when we took mum and dad for a short holiday to Skegness on the East Coast.



The East Coast is perfect for my parents as the ground is nice and flat so less work for us pushing the wheel chair.


If you know where to look there are some very pretty gardens and the beaches are lovely and clean.


This is our evening walk around the lake while mum and dad have a chat with people they meet in the bar.


Victorian paddling pool which has been well cared for and still looking good, the children love it especially as we've been having such gorgeous weather. This was about 7.00pm so you can guess this was a nice day.


Love the pier too, originally opened in 1881 though not as long as it was then.


 You can't go to the seaside in the UK without seeing the Donkeys it's tradition here.



Scrummy! Yet more seaside traditions.


However this is not something we expected to find but my Steampunk friends will like it.


The Nautilus has landed in Skegness!


Just hope you don't get fed up with the Lincoln Stempunk Festival but I have put a video on my facebook page which you might like here:

And a few more pics to finish the post.


These are a few front and back views.





These were all handmade, gorgeous.


I have to warn you I am no where near the end of these and having looked at the rest I think the best are yet to come!

 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: 536 - 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 to admit to not having done very much crafting recently as other things have got in the way but I have plans Lol!


  I got these dies some time ago but not had them out of the packet yet so I thought if I put them on the desk I might just get round to it.
The papers are half made background papers.


  • The basket on the left holds a few other bits and pieces waiting to be loved.
  • The stack of Tim Holtz dies are sentiments and alphabets and I've got them out because they had got mixed up with the other dies and I couldn't find them easily so they really need a new home. 
  • Towards the back you can just see packets of gems.


  •  This is the right hand side where I keep water jars and sprays bottles, tubs for scissors and other tools.
  • The tin holds buttons and the plastic box has a number of objects which I plan to use on a Masterboard.
  • Right on the back you can see Monkey hiding in his white box. He has never proved to be any good at crafting but he keeps me company.

So that's me done for today, sorry it's not very exciting today though I did make another floating die cut card here.

 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.
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 some left-over Masterboard:


Now I wonder if you've guessed where the topper for this card came from!


You may remember this card from an earlier post here:



And these were the left-over pieces which I have turned round and mounted onto a blank card.
Simple but effective, I'm sure you'll agree.


Just finished it off with a few enamel dots, pearls and a nice sentiment.
So that was one Masterboard and at least four cards!
I am so loving this technique using the Press and Seal and if you missed the original tutorial relating to this you can find it here.

I would love to hear your comments.

Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

Steampunk Festival for 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 but actually a couple of weeks ago now. I still have loads of photographs so here are just a few more.

 
If you are going to dress up do it with gusto!
These two have certainly done that.
 

 
This is just part of our wonderful cathedral here in Lincoln where the Festival takes place.

 
Lots of stalls to buy anything Steampunk.

 
And on with the madness.


Just a bit more madness!


But everyone loves it so no one cares!

 
Even the Queen of Hearts!

 
I spoke to this lady and she told me she had made this dress herself, it was gorgeous.



 
This lady seems to be surrounded by her Octopus, hope he's friendly!


 
And there were some pretty colours too.

 
Gorgeous and floaty.

 
And look at those gorgeous little wings!!!!!

 
I have to say these are some of my favourite pics.
He is so gorgeous.

 
I have been up to other things this week too as we took my parents for a short holiday.
 
 
It was a gorgeous week apart from one evening when we had a massive thunderstorm.

 
More photographs for this too but maybe next week as I think that's enough for now, don't want to wear you out.

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.
