WOYWW # 530 - 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!


The card on the desk was posted here on Monday so I know some of you will have already seen it. More details and pics. here:


Started these cards at the Craft Club on Saturday. I will show you them again when I've finished them.


                         I make no apology for the exploding box! 
A new spotty die, a stamped caravan and you can probably just see the yellow packet sticking out which is a new stamp set by Altenew, can't wait to use those.
Everything else is just as you saw it last week.


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

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

I am here today to show you a card made with this Masterboard:

Brusho and Pixie powders and a 'Stencil Girl' stencil.


I had fun making this Masterboard. 
I placed the stencil over the A3 water colour paper and rubbed over it with Tim Holtz Distress Glaze but you can also use Vaseline and as it works in  a similar way to resist the ink.
Next sprayed the paper to dampen it then sprinkled on the powder. More water applied and then left it to spread a little and dry.

I took a dry cloth and rubbed away any colour that was still on the design and reveal the resist pattern.


These were the colours left on the stencil which I pressed onto the paper to clean it before washing the stencil with soapy water.
It always surprises me how different they look so never waste any ink be it left on the craft mat or stencil, there is always a nice surprise if you know where to look for it!
Obviously I will have to use this to make something else later.
Do remember that this will still react with water when dry so it needs sealing which again can be done with the Tim Holtz Glaze or a spray sealant, I'm sure you have your favourite method.


So here we are! There's no need for lots of added detail for a Masterboard like this so I cut a shaped piece, layered it onto a gold card and attached it to the white card blank.


A simple sentiment leaving it suitable for a number of uses, a few gems and a sweet little butterfly finished with Stickles Glitter glue and the card is completed.

And you know what!!! there's plenty left for more cards!

 Hope you like it and enjoyed watching me put this together.
I would love to hear your comments and many thanks for stopping by. 

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.
Well it's been mostly garden stuff again.


My beautiful Vanda Orchid is flowering.
They are one of my absolute favourite Orchids.


Out in the garden we have some new flowers this week.


Snap Dragons which just appear where ever they feel like it!


The daisies are out too this week too.


And the Hydrangea are colouring up nicely.


And now for something slightly different! though still in the garden.


Someone is trying to hide her face from the camera!


And here is why!


I thought she was quiet and while I was busy clearing out some pond weed Princess Maisie had disappeared down the bottom of the garden probably looking for frogs and came back looking like this!


I don't know why Stan thinks it's so funny!
It took me an age to get it all off!
Madam!


Anyway the little grapes are starting to grow.


The Buddleia is starting to flower. This is a particularly lovely colour.


A second flowery for the Wisteria though it's never quite as good as the first set of flowers.


It was a bit sunny when I took this photo but couldn't leave without showing you how big the Cygnets are. I think they aren't cygnets any more and nearly as big as their parents.

So that's it really 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.

WOYWW # 529 - 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've just started a new card using some Tim Holtz stamps.


The exploding box is getting closer to explosion mainly due to the fact I haven't got round to having a tidy up. People keep having birthdays, wedding anniversaries and weddings Lol! Guess it's that time of the year!


These are some left-over bits of Masterboard which I hope to use on this new card....hopefully.


This side of the desk looks a bit better. Empty plastic tubs, Huggies. small jar of water and a few important craft tools.


I can show you this too now. A wedding card that I was working on a couple of weeks ago.

If you want to see how I made this the instructions are 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 have to go out for a while today but I will be back later to see what you've all been up to.

Have a great woyww

happy crafting,

Wedding card.

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

I am here today to show you a card I've made using the pop-up box technique:


Started by measuring, scoring and cutting an A4  sheet of Mirri card.

.
As this is only shiny on none side I have added more pieces of the Mirri card to the opposite side at the top. 


Layering next with some nice patterned Mirri card a kind of silver grey.
I've also prepared the inner support strips and lots of die cut hearts plus a large lace heart which will decorate the back.


I applied the larger heart first leaving one side loose so that it will not effect the fold.


Then tucked the loose section towards the back out of the way.


Then attached a smaller embossed heart and turned the box.


By turning the box it helps you to remember which direction these sections need to be decorated.


Once the outer sections are completed the box can be joined at the sides and the support inserts attached ready to add the rest of the heart embellishments.


I've also added some net to the inside and matching gem stones.


The sentiment is a rub on from my stash.
All that's left to do is to fold it flat and place it in the envelop, just hope the happy couple enjoy it.

If you like this card I do have a set of instructions which can be found here though there are lots on the internet too.

Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting. 
Pleased to hear any thoughts you have about this project.

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.



I went to the craft show at Doncaster last Saturday. This is Create and Craft setting up.


Quite a busy day.


My Hydrangeas are looking well and colouring up nicely.
This was last week.


And here is this week.



Passion flower too.



Fish busy.....


and I have been too.
Lots of gardening.


This is the before trimming.....


And this is after. Just hope you can see the difference. Just a bit more tidy maybe.


Then there are some conifers that have only just got bi enough to start training.
Stupidly I did not take a before photo, silly me.
A bit of topiary going on here.




And here.
They should look nice when they thicken up.


Cut back a load of Bamboo too though I'm not sure you can tell.
My neighbour has kept some of the long stalks which were quite thick and once dried out will be great canes.


And finally to finish the week off we went to see, well listen actually my friend singing in the Be Vox choir again. 
Great evening.


                             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
