Hello snow- with Two Paper Divas

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new Mixed Media card made with Two Paper Divas most gorgeous Tree stamp.
I made the heat embossed " like metal" frame and then added the stamped tree that was embellished with a few kinds of puffy powders and pearl pen to imitate the snowflakes.
The sentiment is the same puffy looked one from PHP and I think it's really looks like a snow over the bare tree.

Makin's clay School days presents

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new post made for Makin's Clay blog!
This month of August we were asked to made some Back to School projects and I made a few small school presents.
As my kids are all grown- ups and my grand kids are still very little, I  am really not sure what those school projects should be. But then, nice altered notebook and an altered pencils organiser can be great when altered with lovely Makin's Clay products.
So here is a small tutorial  and you sure can do it if you are also a paper crafter, like me, and have a die cutting device and some dies too.
I used #3 setting and it was just a try and the great fit for the die cutting the dry sheets of clay with a regular Cuttelbug that I own. So make a few pieces of  rolled clay on #3 setting and let them dry.

2. When your rolled clay is totally dry die cut it with a regular  thin metal dies in your regular die cutting machine. I used Spellbinders Book shaped labels and actually made a mix of colors and sizes.

3. Arrange 4 die cut clay piece by the size and by different color into two die cut books.
Glue all pieces with a good clay and then adhere  your clay books over the general notebook cover.
Those neon colors work perfect over the black/grey covers.
Now the part of your school gift is already done.

4. While waiting for your rolled piece to dry, used the Neon pack leftover to make some cut shapes and to embellish a container that will be used a your pencil holder.
I mixed my Neon clay left overs by hand and made a marbled mix that then was rolled with Makin's roller from Roller and Cutter set.
Do not over mix it! We really want this marbled look and not some muddy color.
Then use your small cutters and cut some lovely shapes. I used a few shapes from Flowers and Leaves cutter set.

5. Let your cut shapes dry and adhere them to the metal container that you like.
So easy to make and so lovely!
If you like the shiny look, cover the shapes with some glaze.

And this is my project here:

I made a very modern style card using American Crafts patterned paper. The background of this card was stamped with round frame and black ink (heat embossed with clear powder ) as a net of circles. The borders  of the second layer papers were punched with EK Success punch .
Then I made a focal stamped point with a mix of flowers from the new set and added a sentiment.
This is a perfect that we can do out sentiments for a numeral occasions with those sentiment small stamps.
The  stamped circle was misted with a few light mists and I added a few mist drops over the whole card.

Vintage post cards-with Rubber Dance

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new Rubber Dance post.
Do you remember this saying about life giving you lemons and you 're making lemonade? So when your crafty life is giving you a new Mail art stamp set and you don't really know what to do with it? Make Post cards and enjoy! Even if those are just some simple stamped creations.
So here is how I did mine:
Products used:
Rubber Dance stamps: Dancing Woman, Violin player from Women collage set - for the front of my postcards
 Love as a sentiment from ArtyHearty set
Envelope stamps for the back of my postcards

Step by step instructions:
1. Cover 2 post card sized white thick cardstock pieces with torn paper leftovers as shown.Stamp the images with black pigmented ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.

2. Using a few shades of natural/brownish distress inks color the inside as shown.

3. Remove the torn paper and this is your post card front.

4. Stamp the word LOVE over each card and ink the edges only.

5. Now make your template as we want the back of the post card to look pretty real.
I made some measurements here just to show you that all we need is the middle of the card and the ends of POST CARD stamp.
6. Use the back  marked piece as your template and just outline the upper long line and a few short ones on the right with fine black marker.
Now stamp the POST CARD title, the Air Mail sign, the stamp and the post cancellation  sign and add one more Air mail stamp on the bottom.
This is a real post card here! We can use it and to snail mail it (cover the faux  post stamp with a real one, please!)

I hope you loved my small tutorial and will make your own simple and fancy Mail Art!
