My new fancy layout made with Paper House Productions papers and stickers and my dear granddaughter best ever photo.

Layout introduction:
With all Mixed Media scrapbooking, mists, masks and paints, we almost forget the simple and cute scrapbooking style. This layout is just the pure scrapbooking as it was a few years ago. Some cardstock, some patterned paper, some basic punches, a lot of good stickers and one lovely photo are the basic products that actually made this lovely bay page.
Supply list:
Paper House Productions:
Country floral pattern paper
Country girl collection Horse paper
1 st Birthday  girl 3d stickers
Happy Birthday 3d stickers
Other products:
Pink cardstock: AC
Punches: EK Success, Martha Stewart
Ink: Ranger
Bling: Flourish with a Bling, Paper Studio
Step by step instructions:
1. Punch around the floral paper with a mix of punches and tear around the punched edges to make it a kind of a square. Ink the edges with Tea Dye ink. Adhere the punched background over the light pink cardstock.
2. Cut a few random rectangles from Horse paper, punch one and ink them all. Arrange all paper rectangles as your photo matting and glue the 5*7'' photo over the matting. Cut a small rectangle strip of the same floral paper, ink it and adhere on the left lower corner.
3. Glue all stickers as shown around the photos and over the paper strip on the corner. Add bling corners and randomly glue some rhinestones over the black photo

You are " Tie'rific" card with Two Paper Divas


 Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my weekly Two Paper Divas post.


Today I am going to share a masculine card and as hard as it usually is to make those cards, with TPD terrific masculine stamp set called For a Special Guy, it was really easy job.
I used masculine patterned paper from PHP and stamped every image over Kraft cardstock with the same ink colors as the paper ones. Each tie was hand cut and glued with 3d foam glue and I added a few cork stickers to add some more texture and interest.

Stamping on clay with heat embossing

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my small clay adventure.
I am very new to Makin's Clay and this is this stage when you just make small projects to check the techniques.
So I know that we can stamp into the clay and I already made those projects.
I also know that we can stamp over the dry clay with solvent inks (such as Staz-On).
Now it was a time to check if I can stamp over clay before it's totally dry with pigmented ink and to heat emboss the stamped image.
So I made this free hand mag- no cutters or what so ever were used and it's about 4'' tall piece- with White clay and then stamped with Ann Butler's Crafter's Ocean Breeze ink from Clearsnap over the fresh made piece. Those inks are great for any surface, so I was almost sure it will work over clay.
 The stamp I used is a perfect background stamp from Rubber Dance company: Flourishes
This stamp gives us this like " old china" look of this small cup;.


As the next step I used my heat gun and dried the stamped image.
Then I covered the whole piece with clear embossing ink (Ranger) , added Clear embossing powder and heat embossed the piece.
It worked! The image stayed on its place and I got this vibrant blue color. But then I made the previous step two more times and got this shiny enamel look of  of the surface.
Then I added some"coffee and cream" strips using Makin's  Ultimate Clay extruder and some Terra Cotta clay for the coffee look. Not perfect, but it was just a stamping adventure, not the ultimate sculpturing one.


Easy  way to embellish the bare white clay piece: just grab your background stamps and your Clearsnap inks and go for it!

Masculine Birthday card for Inspired by Stamping

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Today I am going to share my new masculine Birthday card and as hard as it is to make masculine cards, it's pretty easy if you have some of Inspired by Stamping most gorgeous Masculine sets.
I used Guy Sentiments set for this card and I used it twice.


First I made book shaped die cuts with 2 frames and two inside parts: one in cream and one in black.
Then I  stamped the same sentiment once with white heat embossing and once with black permanent ink and arranged both frames and stamped sentiments over the Kraft card.
I added a simple stamped masculine image from the same set on the bottom and embellished with a few black and white Candi embellishments .
I think that Kraft, cream and black make the perfect masculine color scheme and we don't need to look for  any patterned paper or more masculine images to make a lovely card for our masculine Birthday boys (adult boys anyway).

Travel card with Rubber Dance


 Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new Rubber Dance post!
Today it's a simple (not so) card made with a lot of RD stamps and masking techniques.
I used Travel set  and it  all is heat embossed with black powder and then colored with a mix of Gelatos over the card. This is my most loved set of RD stamps. Maybe it's because I love Paris, London and Venice and visited all of those cities several times . Maybe it's just because I love to travel. And maybe it's just because those stamps are THE BEST!
