Use product recipe with Tando


Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to our Tando recipe week.
This week we were asked to use  one embossing folder, 2 ribbons and 3 gems.
So here is my altered tag with all products on it.
For the tag I used one of TANDO packages'  inside pieces: each Tando product has this packaging " tag" as it's just a perfect product for recycling.
So this " tag" was dry embossed with Sizzix Tim Holtz Postcard embossing folder. Then I decided to add more texture and used Tando Alphabet mask with heavy gel medium for more almost non- seen texture.
Then this tag was painted with DecoArt Mixed Media line paints and highlighted with  gold paint.
Tando new  Rustic Star was painted over and embellished with metal pieces.

The bottom part was embellished with a piece of Tando  Lace effect border and then I added those three gems over it.
The ribbons were added on the top of this altered tag and as your see I made the title as Share Hope. 
So share your own hopes and we all be happy!

Rebbeca Baer Inspiration


 Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second June inspirational post made for Rebecca Baer's blog using her gorgeous stencils.
 And yes, this is a Christmas in June card.
Actually made for some print submissions for the magazine that is not asking for non- seen projects, so I can share it here and to inspire you to make some similar cards in advance.
This card was made with Rebecca Baer's Snow Flurries small  stencil using light texture paste from DecoArt and then blue mist from Tattered Angels for the background. The stencil is 6*6'' size, so I just cut it to fit this 6*4'' size card.
I added the sentiment and felt that it was too " bare". So I made another stencilled  piece , using the very same stencil, but added more saturated mist and let it dry for a long time. Then I just die cut the snowflake pieces from this second textured piece and added them over the card.
As you can see this technique can be used with any Rebecca Baer's stencil and any mist and color. Easy to make a batch and to be prepared for any occasion.



Other products used: Dies- Die Versions
Stamp- Inspired by Stamping
Mediums- DecoArt
Mists- Tattered Angels
Embossing powder- WOW! Embossing Powders
Ink- Clearsnap
 And then, as the lovely stencil was already on my desk, I made another similar Holidays card. Same stencil with crackle paste  and different color gave us a totally different result.

Special delivery Baby boy card

 Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new post for Two Paper Divas!
This time it's a lovely Baby Boy card made with lots of layers, dies cuts and stamping.
I made the card with Canvas Corps  cardstocks and stamped  TPD lovely baby images using Bundle of Joy set  with the bright  blue ink color as my cardstock.
The stamped images were heat embossed and hand cut. I also added a lot of die cut buttons using Die Versions dies and some yellow twine was added for more color.  The huge die cut star was heat embossed for the shiny look. And this is a Baby Boy card for a baby boy star!
Hope you do like my monochromatic baby girl card!



Scrapmats June project Life page

My second Scrapmatts  project for today is my very first of this type. I actually made Project  Life page and I think that i like this format of crafting. As you know Project Life means flat, not too much things added other than paper and photos and Scrapmatts chipboards were just perfect to add over my self made journalling cards.

So this is " about me" travel page that tells some of our Latvia vacation story.
I added  a lot of rub- ons etc over the paper and photos, but almost each and every piece has a bit of Scrapmatts added over.


On this photo I made over the photo frame with the smallest String CircleS 04  chipboard that was painted into black to be seen.
On the next to this photo jorunalling card I added a few words froms Scrap words25 set.



The water lily gorgeous photo was a bit empty, so I painted the Leaf spray chipboard with glitter paint and heat embossing and added horisontally over the photo.


On this piece I made a saying with half and half: half rub- on and half Scrapmatts Journey word from Assorted words 04 set.


On this piece the words were added twice: on the top and on the bottom as a part of my general sentiment over this part of the layout. I used Scrap words 31  and Assorted words 04  set to make this piece.


Back to Scrap words 25 word that was added on this part of the project.


Sorry, my own photo has no chippies. So let it be!


And I really hope that you like my first attempt with Project Life. More to come!

Scrapmats June post Layout


Hello my dear crafty friends!
 Irit is here and this time I have quite a variety of projects made with Scrapmatts delicious chipboards and stencils.
As usual- the first one is a layout.
Those are my gorgeous and still only two grandkids like a year and something ago. 
I made this light Mixed Media layout with Bo Bunny pretty old paper collection and I had to add something new. So Scrapmatts  products are new, aren't they? And they fit this layout a lot.


First the photo was outlined with String Circle 04 circle and another one was added  near. Two kids, connected with blood and love. Two circles- connected with glue and twine.
 The background was made with Circled  stencil and just white acrylic. Again- I stayed in this " circled mood" and as the photo background is dotty, I added lots of dots around the page.


The title  was made in two parts: the first one " TWO" was added over the circle with twine and I used 
Alphabet flags 04 set. The second one " Life Memories" was made with  Assorted words 01 set and heat embossed with black embossing powder.
Love and Laugh sayings were added on the top as a kind of journalling using Scrap words 21 set.

Jazz it up Mixed Media tag

Hello my dear crafty friends! Today I want to share a Mixed Media tag made with Visible image main stamp and Ann Butler's art screen, inks and background stamp.
As you can see I used Ann Butler's Stars art screen  on the top with texture paste and then painted the background with Ann Butler's Clearsnap Crafters inks in Ocean Breeze and Blueberry. The main image was also stamped with Blueberry ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
The plaid background is one of Ann Butler's Faux Quilting stamps by Unity.


And  I enter this tag to some web challenges too:
