Art journal page – STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge reminder

Hi there! Have you played along with the STAMPlorations October Stencil Challenge yet? If not, there is still enough time to join the challenge!! As a reminder and additional inspiration, the design team girls are sharing more projects on the STAMPlorations blog today.

Here is my take for today:

A page in my art journal, called „B the magic“. I´ve used the Evolution stencil with texture paste to create this page. For additional texture I added some gelli plate treated paper (green circles here and there).

The faces are stamped on tissue paper and colored with spray inks. There is plenty of Distress Paint added to the background, but this time I kept to very light and soft colours.

I´ve added black stamped sentiments here and there and highlighted parts of the page with Posca pens. They are my go-to pens when art journaling. I had such a great time creating this page!! Now´s your turn to play and when you do, be sure to join the STAMPlorations October Stencil Challenge (HERE). There are great prizes to be won, so don´t miss it!!!

Happy stenciling,

You are appreciated tag – STAMPlorations

Hello lovelies and Happy Thursday! Today I´m again sharing another tag project with you. I love the combination of orange and pink on a craft project! While I was creating for the TAGplorations May challenge, I might have created a few more, than only one tag 🙂 …

For this one I used a premade white tag as my starting point. Next I stamped the sentiment „For everything you are appreciated“ several times onto the left side of the tag with embossing ink. Then I poured white embossing powder over the area and heat set it with a heat tool. After that I inked the left side with pink Distress Ink and the right side of the tag with orange Distress Ink.

I then took the Heartfelt Hibiscus clear stamp and sprayed it with a water mist bottle ever so lightly. Then I pressed the wet stamp onto the orange inked area and lifted it off. This resulted the „ghost“ stamp image on the orange ink. For finishing touches I added an embossed sentiment onto a purple piece of cardstock and matted that with a piece of vellum. As a focal point there is a big layered paper flower and also a matching purple ribbon to finish the tag off.

I hope you have joined the TAGplorations challenge – if not HERE is you chance!!!

Happy crafting,

TAGplorations January challenge reveal

Hello lovelies and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! May this year bring you lots of creative fun, inspiration and happy moments!!! I hope you had time to relax during the holiday season and are now full of energy to get started with new challenges!!

Speaking of challenges, here comes this years first TAGplorations challenge – create a tag with a WNTER theme:

As an additional option you are asked to use some texture paste on your project.

Here is my take for the challenge:

I created a tag in completely white tones this time. There is a white winter landscape on this tag that is dimentional due to two layers of tag on top of each other. I created a window, but left the acetate out this time. Inside the tag, I used some Nuvo Mousse to create the fun star sky to go with the landscape.

The sentiment is die cut with a CUTplorations die cut die and I used Tonic Krafts golden glitter cardstock to add some sparckle to the card. Also some golden sequins, white loose glitter as well as glaze dots by Nuvo add to the shiny, sparckly white winter theme of this tag.

Now it´s again your turn to create a tag for this month´s challenge. Add your projects here and also remember to follow the rules to be eligble for the prize.

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
