Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 187 # Pearls and/or Gems.

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.


   Josephine is hosting today and our challenge is Pearls and/or Gems.  

 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 made this with some left over Masterboard which had been coloured with Oxide inks and embossed using Tim Holtz stencils and gel medium. The dies are by Memory Box which were then decorated with gems to match with the colours in the Masterboard.
The card blank was stamped using Oxide inks.

 
The card was completed with split pin brads to match.

 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 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.

Remember this?

 
Well when trying to get you a photograph of the new plaque that they have put up I'm afraid I ended up with a photo of me instead. Not sure you can even read what it says Lol!

 
More work going on in the new visitors centre, the roof has gone on now.


And they've fenced all of this off so I guess something else is about to happen.


 As the weather was nice we decided to do a bit of gardening this week and I thought you might like to see what is over the fence.

 
We don't go through here very often as it's a bit wild.

 
There is an old Victorian/Edwardian tip/dump and sometimes we get bottle diggers. I used to come in and collect the stuff left behind and we do have quite a collection of bottles.
I could show you sometime if you like.

 
This is the view looking back towards the house.



 
Somebody thought it was funny to shut the gate before I got back in the garden!
Very funny I'm sure!


Anyway we're back in now!
'Him Indoors' who is actually out of doors today even got the ladders out to do some tree pruning!


 I decided while the sun was out, to clean the Bonsai tables and pots.


 
And here they are all back where they belong.


 
 Guess that's it for now, off to see what everyone else has been up to.
 
 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 411 # 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!

 
Desk just as I left it yesterday after finishing a project.
 
These are nice coloured skeleton leaves and there's one of my little rollers and a blank jigsaw waiting to be decorated.
 
 
I'm in-between projects at the moment so not much going on though the stuff left on the desk might be a clue.
Sorry to be a tease again but the boss wouldn't like it if I show you too soon however, I can show you some a card which is now live at The Craft Barn blog which I made a while ago when I first started playing with the Oxide inks.

 
 
There are details on the post below relating to this and where to find the tutorial that goes with it if you want more details.
 
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,

Back to The Craft Barn with Tim Holtz Distress Oxides.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi everyone just here to let you know this is another project for the Craft Barn and it's now live.

Been working with Distress Oxides again and here is a peek of how I used them.
If you would like to see how I made this card then pop over to The Craft Barn for full details and more close-ups.




I would love to hear what you think about my project and any comments will be gratefully received.

Hope to see you over at The Craft Barn.
 
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 applied Prima 3D matte Gel through Tim Holtz stencils and allowed it to dry then added various colours of Oxide inks.
I only chose the lighter colours of ink as I wanted a nice bright spring like finish to the card.


Next I added text stamping, part of which can be seen here again using the Oxide Inks.
Once the ink was dry I rubbed over the stencilled areas to remove the ink giving the effect that the text was behind it.
 
 
Text stamp:


Dies by Memory Box next and then mounted the Masterboard onto matching layers of card which were placed onto a black card blank which I had prepared earlier by stamping using the same inks and text stamp.
I completed the design with matching ribbon, coloured split pin brads, stickles glitter glue on the butterfly's wings and a few extra small butterflies from my stash.
 
 
 Hope you like this as it's not my usual choice of colours but a nice simple card for a spring birthday and if you use some left-over Masterboard, it's fairly quick to make too.
 
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.

Remember this:

 
Well it seems to have become a wishing well as people have started throwing money in there.
How sweet is that.

 
The swan got off her nest the other day and I photographed this. Not absolutely sure but it looks like an egg.

 
The fish are all waking up and getting pretty active.

 
And the trees are waking up too.

 
Now what's all this about!
She's got the sewing machine switched on Lol!
Could it be that's she is making something!

 
I have one other thing to show you today.
 
 
My friend keeps getting up in the mornings to find this on the lawn.
 
 
Quite large holes all over the place.
We're not sure but think it may be foxes.
Have any of you seen anything like this before?
 
 
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
