Happy Bank Holiday and more crafty stuff.

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

I don't normally post new projects at the weekend but as it's a Bank Holiday I thought Why Not!

So I am here today to show you this card made with a Left-Over Masterboard from an earlier project.

These were made using Fresco Paint and stamps by Paper Artsy.

 
For this card I used up one of the left over Masterboard as the background, with the plain Pearlescent die cut card over the top.

As there was still a little of the Masterboard left I decided to die cut some small butterflies to add to the design.
To complete this I mounted a plain matching card to the card blank and then attached the other two sections.
Several of the plants were then finished with Stickles Glitter Glue and the butterflies and a Tim Holz die cut text added.


The dies are by Clarity and this one is called 'Queen Anne's Lace Aperture'
These dies just cut so well and look great.
 

Hope you enjoyed this little extra.

I would love to hear your comments and when I know where you are I'll pop over to see you too.
 
Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

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.

Obviously last Saturday was the Royal wedding and The Football and I found this in the park.

 
Finding these little treasures always makes me smile.

 
The Lincoln Ninjas are an art group who make things and leave them around the city for people to find, I think it's a lovely idea.

 
Wisteria looking pretty.


 
A rather large bug which I'm sure is eating the leaves on my fruit trees!

 
The swans have babies.
Sorry about the brightness but it was just that.

 
They are so cute.

 
We could see there were two but then one disappeared!

 
If you look carefully one of them has hitched a ride under mum's wings.
How sweet is that, wonder if she told him to get on there?
 
 
This was Friday setting up for the wedding.



Big screen so they could watch the wedding and the football.


Other than all that fun, I've been trying to sort the garden too while the weather's nice.
Plenty to smile about this week weather wise.

 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 468# 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!
This is an extra special Workdesk today as it's also the 9th Anniversary and to celebrate we will be swapping ATCs (Artist Trading Cards).

My collection will be winging it's way to all my dear blogging friends.

 
I'm working on some new birthday cards as there seems to be loads in the next couple of months.

 
This is my favourite set at the moment by Concord and 9th.
I'm planning to use up some old Masterboards again.

 
The little brown box has some ATCs in it waiting to be posted though actually they will have gone by the time you see this.
Some old wooden stamps there too.

 This is new too.
 
More old Masterboards to be used up!


Quite liking these.


I'll post the card when it's finished.

 Thought you might like to see this card I made recently and the details for making (if you need them) 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'm off now to see what everyone else is up to.
Have a great woyww  anniversary
and 
happy crafting,

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge - 'Things with Wings'

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.


  Glenda is hosting today and our challenge is 'Things with Wings' .


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:



I'm not normally a big lover of yellow but it must be the warm weather that has made me use these sunny colours.

Take a 6"x6" card blank and fold the front page back on itself.

 
Take a 5"x5" card blank to fit inside and create a fancy fold.

 
Wonder if you remember this which was made with a homemade embossing folder. I decided to include this in the front of the card.

 
 
Next I went on to create a new Masterboard using an A4 sheet which I had coloured earlier with Distress Oxides.

 
A little bit of stamping.
Faux bleaching first with water and some splatters too..



I used a text stamp too and then added some inked images.

 
Cut out the matting card.


 
I also decided to make another sheet of coloured card taking in all the colours used so far.

 
Then I stamped the butterfly onto the card above and heat embossed and die cut it.

 
Once the pieces were ready I started to mount them onto the card blank.
I have also added Faux stitching to the edges of the Masterboard.
I did rub on a little extra purple to match with the other Masterboard.


 
Showing the front flap section above.

 
The inside.

 
And the folded edge stamped with the butterfly (Crafter's Companion Flutterby set) using Oxide inks.
 
And here is the finished card:
 



 
Sentiment stamp by Inkylicious called 'Gentle Breeze'.





 
 I added a little Stickles Glitter Glue to the butterfly and black gems to the mats.

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 has made me smile this week.

Enjoying the sun quite a lot.
Gorgeous!


The fish are enjoying the warm weather too, greedy beasts!


 
The new baby.
Matsuba type.
If you look at him next to the other fish you can see how small he is but he'll grow.

 
 They were replacing the gates this week in the park which were taken down for renovation.


The new café is now open most days.

 
New glass House though we've not been in it yet.

 
New sun dial arrived this week ready for the grand opening of the park.
They are setting up a large screen so visitors can watch the royal wedding and the football on the 19th May.

 
This spaniel is enjoying the water in the fountain despite his owner trying to stop him he was straight in there!

 
And the Wisteria at home is flowering lovely.




 
Not sure if you've seen her before. I love anything Nouveau or Deco.

 
Hope your week has been lovely too.

 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
