Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 189 # Floral Profusion Masterboard.

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.


Jackie is hosting today and our challenge is 'Floral Profusion'.

As usual you can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to just be cards, as long as it meets the challenge, and doesn't exceed the 15 total challenges entered rule! 

Hope you will join in.
And here is my project for the challenge:

 
 I started this Masterboard using an A3 piece of card that I had coloured using Distress inks and then applied 3D gel through a stencil to add texture.

 
Stencil by Imagination Crafts.


More texture.
If you have the new Distress Oxide Re-inkers this is one way you can use them by applying a couple of drops to your texture gels.
 
 
If you make sure they are really well shaken, you only need two drops to get really good colour mixing.

 
I used a Kim Dellow stencil by Paper Artsy.

 
Finished of with some text stamping in matching colours.
 
 
I cut the masterboard to size and distressed the edges and rubbed on some Treasure Gold to the raised texture, then mounted it onto matching card.
The flowers and butterfly were made with paper from an old book coloured with oxide inks and then stamped and heat embossed with the Paper Artsy flowers by Kim Dellow.
I generally use WOW! Clear Gloss Regular embossing powder as it's nice and fine and comes in big pots as I like to stamp with colour and emboss clear so there is plenty to go at.
I gave the butterfly a double layer to give it dimension.
 
 
The sentiment is also by Paper Artsy: elenazinski Art.

To complete the design I added coloured pearls and gems.

 
 
 I hope you will be able to 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 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.

In the park everyone seems to be doing well.


 

More work on the bandstand.


Cygnets are getting bigger.



 
They are so sweet.


A bit of tree carving going on here.


 Lovely patterns made by the trees dropping bud bits into the dyke.



More work on the visitors centre.


This was Sunday morning, no sign of life but think they'd had a good night by the look of the cans and the following day they were gone and I'm pleased to report that they had taken all the rubbish with them so that's good.

 
And now something I had never seen before!
We had always been led to believe there were Pike in the lake but never seen them and today the fishermen actually caught this one just as we were walking towards them.

 
It was big!


 I was really impressed with how careful the fisherman was at removing the hook from the fish.

 
And then back in the pond.
 
 
 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 415 # What's On Your Workdesk Wednsday.

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!

 
Please don't look at my exploding box as it is worse than ever this week! So the next photo will not include the box as I am ashamed of it today.
I just seem to have had all sorts of things on the go and kept putting left over bits in the box which has meant it's now overloaded!
In fact the card I'm working on here is using some leftovers from an earlier project, "Waste not Want not!"

 
Anyhow this is some of the stuff I'm using:
 
  • Seth Apter stamps for a card I'm making.
  • Left over card from Seth Apter Backgrounds.
  • Paper Artsy stamps for another card I did earlier in the week, Kim Dellow and Zinskis.
  • 3D gel on the right which I've been mixing with Oxide re-inkers.
  • And of course my Misti.
Other than that it's pretty much the usual stuff that's always on my desk.
Not very exciting I know as I'm in the middle of a project but I'll let you see it when complete.
If you feel cheated cos. there's nothing completed I posted some cards on Monday which I know some of you have seen already and which are here.
Feel free to have a look if you like.
 
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,

Monday - What no Masterboard!.

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

I am here today to show you a card I've made (two actually) which is unusual for me but necessary! and for  a change there will be no Masterboard.

This may give you a clue as to who they are for!

 
As yet we don't know which colour the baby will be but it's due soon.
 
So I thought it would be a good idea to be prepared so I've made two cards.
 
1. Outline the card blank.
Stamps are by Just Rite - 'Special Delivery'

 
Next die cut the mats and layer these on the card blank.


I used a Woodware stamp for the focal image 'FRS104 Pram'
Stamp this several times, cut out the sections and attach to the main piece to create a collage effect.

 
I also wanted to add a little more interest so decided to use this star border.

 
And then mounted it all together after adding small matching brads to the corners, Stickles glitter glue and crackle paste.

 
A tag to complete the design.






Sentiment and we're done, ready for the new arrival.




 I would love to hear what you think.
 
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 photographed the fields as we drove to my mum's the other day and everywhere is covered in Rapeseed at the moment due to the high demand for the oil.



 
It's just everywhere!


 
This is from an article on the Internet.



It is very yellow! and very smelly.
Not a nasty smell though very strong but really brightens up a dull day.
 
In the park are these little beauties, so sweet.
 
 
And the new path round the fountain is growing.
 
 
After showing you some of my bottles the other week, I wondered how many of you still have your milk delivered by the Milkman?

 
Some of my friends can hardly believe that we still do.
 
I also attended a craft workshop on Saturday, great day out making cards using the Misti.
 
Card samples:
 


And the craft show was Sunday and
this was Saturday as they were setting up.

 
And this was Sunday!
Just a bit different!
Great day.


 This is Barbara who did the class for us and demonstrates the Misti for Oyster Paper Crafts.
 
 
 And finally here is Maisie on my cushion! I might say Lol! just showing you that she owns this place and everyone else is just here to look after her every whim or so she likes to think Lol!
She looks like a proper little madam here and I think it's the eyebrows that do it because she's actually quite a sweetie.

 
Gosh that's a lot this week for you to look at!

 Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.
 
Stop Press!!!
Cygnets in the park!!!
 
 
Great success as they lost their only baby last year and now they have four.
 
 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.
