Hi there everyone, me again sharing yet another set of cards, again created while playing/practicing with the Misti stamp tool. There are layered flower stamps from Stampin´ Up! that I´ve used to create these clean & simple styled cards.
If you look closely, you can see that the positioning is not perfect, but I didn´t want to waste these images, so I created two quick cards with them.
Hello there everyone, today I´m just quickly dropping by to share a wintery card with you. I did my first ever mirror image stamping on this card, using the Misti-tool (there are plenty of videos on YouTube how to do this technique). The stamping part actually was not that hard to create – the coloring is the part I am not very talented at…LOL…
But since these birdies are SUPPOSED to look like they are freezing, I actually can live with the end result. Inside is a funny „stay warm“ stamped sentiment. I think it fits the card theme perfectly.
Sometimes it feels good to do something different – even though the end result is FAR away from the result I aimed for. Oh well, it was still fun :). Want to see how I create my mirror images with the Misti? Here goes:
Hi there everyone, I am up today with one last – although I could go on and on with these coffee themed projects, as I AM a coffee addict 😉 – project for the Spring Coffee Lovers blog hop.
This time I ended up creating a coffee themed tag. Here it is:
And this is how I created it:
First I took a plain white tag and misted it with a Tattered Angels Cardboard toned Chalkboard spray ink. I sprayed the tag really wet so that the color would start „running“ on the tag surface and then quickly dried the surface with a heat gun. That way I got this really cool background look. Looks like spilled coffee :)..! And next I stamped the A Cup Of Roses clear stamp image onto a piece of beige patterned paper. The paper had platters on it, which makes it look like it has been stained by coffee/tea. Perfect for this theme then! I colored the image with markers again – using mainly Copic markers and adding white dots with a white gel pen. Finally I decorated the rose petals and the coffee cup with Rose Gold and Stardust Sticles to add some sparckle to the image. Next I took the Bloomin´ Spring Coffee Basket stamp set and used the sentiment stamps with black ink for the tag background. I repeatedly stamped the images next to each other mainly concentrating on getting the coffee name parts visible on the tag. Then all I did was to fussy cut the Cup of Roses image and adhere it onto the tag. I also stamped a sentiment onto a white paper and inked it with darkish yellow spray ink tone to match the tag colors and adhered the stamped sentiment underneath the rose image. Finally I added some ribbons to the tag and the project was done. I really like the colors on this tag. I am not that big a fan of brown but when I see it on a project, it gets me every time – maybe it´s because it reminds me of coffee 😉 ….
Hello there again, everyone! Time to share another Spring Coffee Lovers blog hop project with you today.
I could not stop with the ATC cards, but had to make another project :). This time, I altered a fabric bag to a customized present bag. Here is what it looks like:
I can fill it with goodies and give it away on a suitable occation. Here is what I did:
I first took a waterproof black ink and applied ink onto the STAMPlorations „A Cup of Roses“ clear stamp. I love this stamp!!! It is soooo pretty!!! Then I took some markers – both water soluble and permanent ones, as I am not going to add anything wet inside this bag, so it does not matter which ones I use. When coloring, I added a piece of thick cardstock inside the bag to keep the marker color from seeping all the way thru the bag and leaving ugly color spots on the backside of the bag. I also stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set on the bottom of the bag.
I don´t have much practise at coloring, so I went for a more „artistic“ look instead of trying to get a realistic result :). Finally after finishing the coloring, I added white gel pen dots onto the coffee cup and added some Frosted Lace Stickles around the rose petals for additional detail and the bag was finished. Here is a close-up of the finished project. I really like how it turned out. I have a few more bags in my stash, so I might make some more to give away :). And now, hop over to the STAMPlorations blog to read more about this fun coffee themed spring hop!! Do join in the fun!!!
Hello lovelies!!! A while back I saw a beautiful home decor piece on Pinterest, created with butterflies. I have been wanting to create a butterfly home decor piece of my own ever since and after finding a reasonably prized glass dome at IKEA, I finally could create one.
Here is what my finished piece looks like:
The fun part about this project is that I´ve used lots of „junk“ to make this piece. The wire is from an old table calendar. I tossed the calendar and kept the wire. The butterflies are punched out of an old notebook paper I found at a local flea market and the bottom wood base (covered with burlap) is a piece of wood from my husband´s crafty project. So basically I just altered those and gave them new life :).
The fun part of this project was to use Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, some Canvas Corp Burlap and punches to bring some life to the old junk objects. I have a full start-to-finish fast forward video tutorial prepared for you to watch! Hope you like it!!!
I hope you enjoyed watching the video and got inspired by it to create a fun spring home decor piece of your own! Don´t forget to add some sparckle to your project with the gorgeous Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist colours!!! Here is a link to the spray ink lines.
A new collection of Joset Designs die cut dies is out and they are so very cute. I have quite a few favorites in this release and have been on a card creating roll ever since I got some of those dies :). Here is what I have been upto:
This is actually a winter release, but the fun thing about these die cut dies is that they can actually be used for various seasons and purposes! Here both the upper and lower card are made using the same die cut set – one with a stand and one without immediately creates a totally different kind of card.
I´ve written more about the creating process on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog, so please hop over there and read more there! And while there, do leave a comment :).
Hello there! Today I´m sharing the fifth altered Christmas tree bauble with you:
As with the previous ones, I started by adding a layer of white gesso with a paint brush over the decoupage bauble surface.
Next I used a paper glue and adhered yellow twine (by Whisker Graphics) and a piece of light blue lace ribbon over the bauble surface. I stopped around the middle and left the bottom part free of any decoration.
After the Glimmer Mist was dry, I added some Stickles glitter glue over the area that used to be the light blue lace/ribbon. After that I adhered some half pearls around the middle for additional detail and the ornament was done.
Now there is only one more left – make sure to come back in two days time to take a look :).
