WOYWW - 604 - 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!


Bet you weren't expecting all this mess but I have a box to make which will hold a journal I've just completed so the desk is covered in crafting stuff.


Apart from that I have several AALL and Create stamps in the folder you can see here...birthday cards to make.


Close-up of the box and the little boxes have Christmas bits left over from making the cards. The tub is snowflake stuff as I have an idea for next years cards if it happens. 
I always feel like making cards about now but don't usually do it because we go away which obviously we wont be doing this year so who knows.


This is a piece of watercolour paper decorated with shaving foam and coloured ink. I've stamped onto it with an AALL and Create stamp but not got any further with it yet.

                    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:



The Masterboard is a combination of stamps and stencils by Aall and Create.


The colour on the triangles was Distress oxide smooshed onto white card and the die cut using the triangular dies.
I like to play around with the focal images before deciding how the design will finish.


And once you're happy with the arrangement it's time to add the images to the background and finish with a few decorative items in this case enamel dots.


The sentiment is a die cut by Creative Expressions.


Couldn't resist a small strip of the Masterboard to add interest on the inside of the  card too.


I would love to hear your comments.

Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

Coloured Mica applied with Light Gel Medium, just mix these together and apply with a dry brush.

All finished.

Manic Monday Christmas Cards.

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

I am here today to show you more Christmas cards I've made using Card-io stencils and stamps.



I'm using the large snowflake this week.


I've used a variety of stamps by Lavinia Stamps and Circadesign and Card-io which seem to work well together.


The fairy Lights are by Lawn Fawn Cuts.


Finished these with die cut snowflakes and Stickles Glitter Glue. The die cut deer is by Tim Holtz.

There are more examples from last week which you can find here with instructions for making.

Couldn't leave without showing you one that I slightly adapted from a Tim Holtz die.


They look so much like my two schnauzers.

Hope you liked these and 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.


I can't say we've actually done much this week which is probably for the best. 
Stay home and stay safe seems to be the rule.
We've got the Christmas tree up and Maisie and Stan are cuddling up on the sofa.
Staying at home does give more time for crafting obviously and I'm working on my Craft Academy project.

I have been for a little walk and these two made me smile.


And as you can see the sun had come out which was lovely.


And here's Stan having what seems to be an interesting conversation with my mum!

So time for a few funnies.



I realise this is a cat and a dog but it still reminded me of Maisie and Stan.
Hope some of this helped you to smile a little.

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.

As we will all be a bit busy next Friday I would like to take the chance to wish you all the happiest Christmas possible. 
Stay safe and look forward to seeing you in the New Year.

WOYWW - 602- 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!


Finished my Christmas cards at last...well I hope so Lol!


Working on the dragon box again so you can see my Hot Glue gun at the ready.


On the left is a box of beads and cogs that I'm using with the dragon box.
Some Sizzix dies that I got from their sale.
Tim Holtz Snarky Cat stamps and the exploding box is still tidy! The little white box holds some beads, brads and sequins.
Towards the back is one of the Card-io style cards that I've been making.


Not really got too far with the dragon box but hopefully by next week I should have the first layer of paint on. 
It looks pretty messy at the moment but I can assure you it will look a lot different soon.....very different in fact!
There are a few pebbles at the back there but not had time to play with those either.


And the dies that I got from Sizzix, some of them were in their reduced sale so just had to have them....naughty girl lol!





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,

Manic Monday Christmas Cards.

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

No Masterboard today as it's been manic here trying to get all the Christmas cards made but lots of ideas to show you.


I've been using stamps and stencils by Card-io.


I started by placing the bauble stencil on the card blank and running it through my Big Shot to emboss the card but you could do this with an embossing tool. 
The die cut deer is by Tim Holtz.
For this cards I've also added a mask to create the moon before adding the colour.
The reflection is created by stamping onto a piece of acetate and then press that onto the card.

Keep the mask in place while applying ink with a blending tool then mask off sections and blend in the details of the hills etc. 
Allow the ink to dry and then stamp the chosen images. 
To complete the designs I have added Stickles Glitter Glue, sentiment and tiny die cut snowflakes.

The tree stamps on these cards are by circadesign and the sentiment a freebie everything else is Card-io.
I got a bit carried away with this technique so there will be more to follow before Christmas.

Hope you liked those I certainly enjoyed making them and I would love to hear your comments.

Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

Allsorts Challenge - Week 602 Got to be Christmas.

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.
It's been a busy week for us. 
My mum had a phone call from her doctor about getting the vaccine and she's been a bit worried about that so we've been having to reassure her.
Then I got a surprise raffle prize.


Now that was unexpected. It was only last week that I got the tickets. 
The tickets were on behalf of  Macmillan Cancer Support.
There was so much in there and the basket is lovely too.



The path is all completed and I've been busy trying to get the rest of my Christmas cards made.



And this happened!


Yes, we had snow though it didn't stay for long but was unexpected.


Only just got the path done in time.


And the strawberry patch too.


And then there was the brilliant Zoom meeting on Saturday with all these lovely crafty ladies.


Can't wait to do that again.

So that's me done 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 - 601- 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!

Just realised I'd made my desk sign and that none of you could probably see it on Saturday so I apologise for that but it's still there as proof Lol! though actually I'm not sure you can read it but it's up there on the right.

To the left is one of the Tim style cards that I made and my brilliant Bosch hot glue gun. I even tidied the exploding box!!! Everything else is tidy ready for the new project which I've started below, well tidy for me anyway.


I've just started on my next project from the Creative Craft Academy. I don't normally buy things like this but as I felt a bit lazy and in need of fresh encouragement I decided to give it a go.
All the little tubs are the mica powders and gel mediums that come with it and I'm sure you'll get to see more as I go along.

So that's me done for today and just need to give Julia one more thank you for the brilliant Zoom meeting, can't wait to do it again. 
I'm really missing being able to chat to my friends at the Craft Club I usually go to so this was just what I needed and I'm sure you'll all agree.

 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:



I hate to waste anything so I stuck all last years year's postage stamps (and a few others) to an A4 sheet of card. The images are so pretty, it's such a shame to just bin them.


I liked these so much that I decided to scan them rather than use the original and changed the colours on some of the copies too.


This card was made with the original colours and a snowflake stamp (Visible Image) for the background and finished with Stickles glitter glue. The sentiment was by Apple Blossom Designs.


I changed the colours of the masterboard this time and the background stamp is by Magenta.

Lots more to come which I'll show you soon.
Hope you liked that idea for reusing the postage stamps.

I would love to hear your comments.

Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

Angela x
