Life Journey mini album with BoBunny Sunshine Bliss collection


 Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my last for two new BoBunny releases post.
This time I used the most gorgeous Sunshine Bliss collection again and made a cute, card sized mini album that has a different binding from the previous one I made with another BoBunny collection.

This album has a folded spine and is great for " fatty" pages. Each page is actually done as a pocket and you can add whatever you want inside the pockets.
It can be your favorite summer photo or the tickets to water park or even your kids drawing and you still have space to glue photos or ephemera  over the black pages if you wish to do so.
The cover was made with BoBunny Double Dot cardstock and then embellished with Sunshine Bliss cardstocks, layered chipboard, die cuts, stickers and BoBunny flowers.
The title of the album was done with this collection's Thickers and a die cut and it's " Life Journey" as a main title and " Today is a perfect day to be happy" as a sub- title.




 Here are most of page spreads for you to see.
I used mostly paper cuts and stickers and on each and every page front a saying was stamped using our new and must to have BoBunny stamp set-Expressions.
Each quote was stamped over a die cut cardstock piece with hot pink ink from American Crafts Vicki Boutin Mixed Media ink set. This is a pigmented ink and as such it was heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
The page edges were inked with the same ink and as this ink is highly pigmented you have to heat  dry the edges (unless you want some mess that happened to some of my pages, but it looks pretty after all).



 The pink left page is perfect for summer photos to add over it.So are all other left side pages that were left without any embellishments.

Lovely thoughts of you card tutorial with SNS

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit from Irit Shalom Designs is here today  with my second July  Sparkle N' Sprinkle release project.

I made  this card using the most gorgeous Sketched Pear blossom stamp set and added totally glittered background using a stencil and three SNS glitter colors. 


 The main image was stamped over embossable SNS acetate, heat embossed with black detail embossing powder and colored from the back and from ther front with different coloring mediums.


Product list:
Sketched pear blossoms stamp #904
Tim Holtz 5'' mini scissor
 Here are some close- ups to the project:




 And now here is my full step by step tutorial for you to follow:
1.Die cut the square using sticker paper. Add the stencil over and sprinkle Waterfall glitter.



2. Peel off the stencil and add Spirited green on the top. Try to avoid the middle part that will be covered with third color.


 3. Add pink glitter on the middle of the square.


 4. Die cut cardstock rectangles to make your card.


 5. Arrange the rectangles and glittered square as shown using Tear- ific 1/2'' double sided SNS tape.


 6. Stamp the Pear blossoms over embossable acetate  - the large and two small ones- using VersaMark ink and heat emboss with Black detail SNS embossing powder.

7. Color the stamped acetate from the back side with a mix of Ranger alcohol inks.


8. Hand cut the stamped images. Don't try to make it perfect as this is a clear acetate around the stamped images.


 9. Glue the stamped pieces over the card as shown using Tonic glue pen.Remember to glue from the heat embossed side up.


 10. Color the image with acrylic paints. (Green one is not shown on the photo).


 11.  Stamp and die cut the sentiment. Glue it over the card.
Add some random Nuvo drops around the card.


 Thanks for being here today with me and see you in a couple of weeks with my last July release project!

Bravo eclipse card tutorial with CAS-ual Fridyas


Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit from Irit Shalom Designs is here today with my very first post made for CAS- ual Fridays main company team.
About  a year and a half ago I was asked by CAS- ual Fridays owner Michele to make some guest design for the company release.
From there I became a member of their challenge blog design team for a year and now lucky me moved to the main inspiration  blog.
So from here on you will see my CAS- ual Fridays projects made with new releases and oldies all together and some will have a full step by step tutorial.
So today I made a full tutorial for a kind of eclipse card.
Usually we need a larger alphabet single letters dies  to make a proper eclipse card,but as you can see CAS-ual Fri- dies words can make the job too.
So here is my eclipse card and yes, let's say Bravo to all of us who survive the Summer vacation... 
I know that with four small grand kids it makes my Summer a full time job of babysitting, but I still can craft in between.



So in general this card was made with several techniques  (see them all on the following step by step tutorial):
Stamping with VersaMark and heat embossing; masking with die cuts;coloring with water color markers;making faux chipboard with layered die cuts; adding texture with texture paste and stencil; misting around.
 And with all these techniques this card still looks pretty much clean and simple; exactly the way I wanted it to look.



 These are CAS- ual Friday products I used to make this card:

Pretty Posies 

Posies Fri Dies

 And now here is my step by step tutorial:

 1. Die cut or hand cut  your card front from a thick white cardstock. Stamp the largest flower with Memento Luxe black pigmented ink or us VersaMark (whatever works best for you). Heat emboss with clear embossing powder (if you used VersaMark  heat emboss with black embossing powder).




2. Stamp all flowers and leaves from Pretty Posies stamp set and die cut them all with Posies Fri- dies.
I made all masks in advance, also I didn't use them all at the end.




3. Use your die cuts as masks and stamp the flowers cluster on one corner. Then move to the other corner and make another flower cluster.



 This is how it looks after this serial masking, stamping and heat embossing.



4.Water color the stamped images with you favorite water color tools. Mine are Zig Real Brush.



5.  Arrange Bravo cutting die over the colored card front and die cut it.




Die cut the same word 2-3 times from black cardstock to make this your inner layers.
Glue the top die cut layer over the inner ones and make 3d " chipboard like" word.



6. Die cut deep purple background rectangle in the same size as your card front.
Glue the die cut card front over the background dark layer.
Glue the sentiment into the die cut negative part with 3d foam glue.



7. Use stencil and glitter paste over the " white spaces" to add some interest to the card.
 Let it dry.




8. Add few color splashes over the dry glitter paste.
You card is done! Enjoy!


Hope you liked my small tutorial and see in in a couple of weeks with more CAS- ual Fridays inspiration!
