Inspired by Stamping card tutorial


 Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my card tutorial made for Inspired by Stamping.
This card  (actually two ) were made with Gelly plate and stencil and as you will see you can make dozens of such cards in no time with the very same paints and one single stencil.

So here we fo to the tutorial:
1. Use a few matching fluid acrylics over Gelli Plate with your favorite stencil.
I used DecoArt Media line paints and Scrapmatts ....... stencil.


2. Make a few prints with those paints over the stencil and without it (the negative mono print). You can see how similar and yet different are those prints.


3. Die cut the piece that you would love as your card base. Try to find one with the light/empty space for the sentiment stamping.


4. Stamp the huge Inspired by Stamping sentiment using the new, just released stamp set named Just for you.My tip for this step:  you don't need to use clear embossing ink or the same color ink as your embossing powder. If you are going to use dark embossing powder, like black one here, you can use any good pigment ink color. I used dark blue and still the sentiment is black after all.
 Also stamp some small stars from the same set  in the same way over the card.



5. Die cut the basic light blue card with Elizabeth Crafts die and add some white acrylic highlights with a think brush as shown.


Actually your card is all done. But to make it more interesting I added a chipboard saying on the corner and a piece of painted chipboard in the same shape as my stencil used here.


And how about second card? Remeber that we had a lot of background prints? So here are the card twins here and I hope you like them!

Going wild art tag


Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second August post made for Susan K. Weckesser blog.
This time I made a small tutorial for this lovely easy to make tag and it's just great technique for all of us who are not coloring artists.
So here is my tutorial for you:

1. Use Susan K.Weckesser's Unity The Garden Whatnot collection  tag (one of three) and stamp the image over the white cardstock with Susan's ColorBox Color Pop mini Mystery black ink.





2. Stamp the second tag from the very same Unity stamp set with the same ink and punch the 2'' circle with a circle punch (or use a die to die cut the circle).




3. Ink the stamped tag and the punched circle with Susan's ColorBox Color Pop mini inks in Ice and Fresh colors as shown. You can wipe the ink if it's too intensive.




4.Hand cut the basic tag from gold cardstock and add the second tag layer using Susan's Live in Color (backside) cardstock. Ink the patterned cardstock edges with ColorBox Color Pop mini ink in Shimmer (gold).



5. Stamp the owl image from Susan's Going Wild new released stamp set with Shimmer ink and heat emboss it with clear embossing powder. Hand cut the image and ink inside with a light layer of Cocoa Color Pop mini ink.
Stamp the sentiment with the same set and the same Shimmer ink; heat emboss the sentiment with clear powder. Hand cut the sentiment and ink with a light layer of Ice  ink and ink the edges with gold ink.
Arrange the tag as shown. Add a small yellow feather and a lace ribbon on the top of your tag. 





I really hope that you liked my small tutorial and Susan's delicious products!

You are loved card with Honey Bee stamps


Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my last Honey Bee Stamps post for August.
This time I made a totally Mixed Media card with tons of mediums, paints, mists and texture and yet it is a totally flat card after all. The Miracles of Mixed Media are here!
I used Rebecca Baer stencil with modelling paste to make the not so much seen background (look close, it's there). Then I  colored the background with a mix of Tattered Angels mists and paints. After the background was all dry I stamped the Honey Bee flowers and a sentiment on white tissue and glued it over the background with Gel Medium.
Stamps used here are Honey Bee Stamps:Country Blooms and  Beautiful life! Perfect, perfect. perfect for any stamping occasion!




Just a few gold sequins were added and this fancy card was all done!
There are much more of my projects on my Instagram account @iritshalom2000 and you are welcome to follow me there!

Mixed Media canvas with BoBunny



Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my Mixed Media canvas first ever video tutorial!



Let's say that this was the hardest thing  I've ever crafted and there are a lot of reasons for this Mission Impossible issue.
First I got my products as BoBunny Round 2 finalist on June 19 ("huge thanks" to Israeli customs that kept my  custom free package for 2 whole weeks without any reason and then sent it to the wrong post office  without the electric power for 3 days and impossible to get the " must electronically sign" package). 
The original date to submit the projects was June 23. Also BoBunny extended the due date my  own due date was June 23, as on June 24 we already had booked and paid vacation trip to Poland. 
So for me it was like " do it today and whatever will be- will be".
For the crafter who never made even a 30 second video clip it was a nightmare.
I had to find a good camera (dear Husband's smartphone). I had to find the spot to film it ( low living room table was the only one that  was a good fit, but  BAD one after all as I worked from the side sitting on my knees). I filmed it three times and the last one was  the best of all poor attempts. 
It took me ages to edit it on the only free program that I had on my pretty old PC that refused to upload the better program.
I made a trial upload  to You Tube without any music or final photos and then the most awful thing happened: my Movie editor died. Like I can't edit on it more and couldn't even think about all new process.
So I added a  bit of music with You Tube and that was it.
We are leaving to Poland in a couple of days. I still had the second, not video, project to make for BoBunny audition.
I had family issues with sick family members that  I needed to take care of. 
I like my final project and I hate this video thing... I am deep on minus infinity spot on my learning curve and don't have any spare time or products to make the new film.
So I made this post with this video link  just to show you my Mixed Media canvas made with my adorable daughter's wedding photo and I cross my fingers for the best. 
At least I tried. I didn't gave up. I made my best with the impossible time lines. My family and friends told me told to give it up. I cried a lot, but I made this video and maybe it will be my very first and my very last one as I am much better with step by step photo tutorials that I really love to make. 
Hope you like my project and thanks for reading this blog post after all.
And this is a video tutorial link here:

So this is my Mixed Media Vintage altered canvas here.
All products are from BoBunny and if there was not right color I just made them with tea and coffee stains.




Look at some close- ups:










Thanks for reading this post and watching my very first video attempt.

Holidays tag with Die Versions

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new Die Versions post.
I know that it's just August. But when you make project form print you mostly craft Christmas in March. And so it was with a few of my projects that I am going to share in a couple of next months.
I still don't know if this fancy tag was print published as I didn't get the issue, but the issue is already in shops, so I can share it and you can try to make a similar  gift tags in advance.
The tag was made with Canvas Corp 7 Gypsies paper and a lot, and I mean ALOT, of Die versions die cuts.
I used two sets of nested dies here:
Nested Stitched circles and Nested Stitched Combo.
The circles were arranged on the top of the tag and the sentiment was layered over rounded squares die cuts.
Usually the basic dies are for matting. I use them as the main embellishments over some of my projects and I am totally in love with this nested stitched line. I still need to buy some more that I don't own yet!




And those are dies used to make this tag:

Whispers - Stitched Nesting Combo
