So grateful card with SNS

 Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here today and I am going to share a very simple, but yet impressive card that I made with the new Sparkle N' Sprinkle Feathered Friends stamp set.
I am not a vivid colorist, so when I see a stamp that can be just colored a bit or even left as is I am happy and try to show you the way to make a fancy and lovely card without any coloring at all.

As you can see this card was made with just white and Kraft cardstock. The upper image was stamped over the Kraft die cut part with VersaMark and heat embossing. The lower part was stamped in the same way and then I glued both parts.
The white color was added with white pen only. The wood grain was added over the card with Tonic Glimmer paste over stencil. Then some pale pink was added both with Crystal drops and Mica Mist.

Product list:
Feathered Friends set #909P5
1/2'' Tear- ific tape
Stencil- craft shop
Uniball white pen

 As always a full step by step tutorial is HERE in my own blog and your all are kindly invited to visit it.
You are also invited to visit our SNS shop for the products used to make this card and much more!

Step by step tutorial:
1.Stamp the sentiment and the wrap image over white cardstock card using VersaMark and heat emboss with Black Detail EP.

2. Die cut Kraft cardstock topper and stamp the birdies in the same way.

3. Glue the Kraft part over the white card front and add clear Glimmer paste over it as shown using stencil.

4. Color the birds with white pen.

 5. Splash a few random Turkish Rose Mica mist drops over the card.

 6. Add a few pink Crystal Nuvo drops as shown.

Thanks cards with CAS-ual Fridays

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here today and I am going to share two card made with the same Fri- die. The first one was made with the actual die cut. The second one was made with the negative piece that was left after the die cutting. So two card are totally different.
The first card is bright, warm and glittered all over.
I used glitter paste over red patterned cardstock to make the background . Then the stamped with CAS- usal Fridays Starlequin stamp piece was added on the top. 
The sentiment was die cut 5 times and arranged  as a chipboard with gold heat embossed top.
 There is no step by step photo tutorial for both cards, but I made a nice written step by step tutorial for you to see and to use. Just scroll to see them both.

Product list:  CAS- ual Fridays stamps


Dies- CAS- ual Fridays

Smiling Fri- dies

 Inks- Tsukineko
Embossing powders - Sparkle N' Sprinkle
Cardstock- American crafts, Papericious
Stencil- craft shop
Glimmer paste, enamel drops- Tonic Studios

Step by step: 1. Die cut 6*4.5'' black cardstock rectangle as your basic card. Die cut the second smaller light yellow layer and glue it over the basic layer.
2. Die cut Papericious patterned cardstock and cover it with glimmer paste over the stencil. Let it dry and glue it over the two previous layers.
3. Stamp CAS- ual Friday Starleon strip with VersaMark. Heat emboss with gold SNS embossing powder. Add Nuvo black and gold drops and glue the strip over the card.
4. Die cut Fri-die word Thanks (CAS- ual Fridays) several times. Heat emboss the upper layer and glue them one over another. Add the sentiment over the card as shown.

And some close- ups to the card front:

 As I said the second card was done with the negative left after first card die cutting. I just tried to die cut the word die on the corner for the future use.
So this card is totally different and simpler and maybe even a bit masculine.
I stamped some CAS- ual Fridays flowers with VersaMark and heat embossed them with white embossing powder and then partially covered with Fri- dies leaves made from the background green cardstock.The rest of the sentiment was stamped with a same stamp set sentiment.

And if you scroll down you can see the full product list and step by step written tutorial too.

Magenta ATC trio with more than dozen products

 Hello my dear crafty friends! Welcome to my very last post as Magenta DT member.
It was a lovely year long trip with this company and it's over now.
So as my last tribute to this design team I made an ATC trio using not less then 5 Magenta stencils and 8 Magenta stamps just to make those small and adorable art pieces.
I made the backgrounds with white texture paste and 3 different stencils.
Then I added black glitter over two more Magenta stencils.
When it was dry it was Painted with Prima paints.
Stamped imaged were made over white tissue paper with permanent ink and glued with Gel medium over the textured pieces.
As the last, but no least, part of the design butterflies and bees were stamped over white cardstock, painted, glittered and hand cut.
Here are some larger photos of my ATC:

Sparkle card tutorial with SNS

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit from Irit Shalom Designs is here today  with my last July  Sparkle N' Sprinkle release project.
This time I decided to make a card with themed stamps for totally another occasion.
So this is a general " Sparkle" card made with Halloween stamp from the new released 
When black cats prowl SNS stamp set.

 I need to say that it's very hard to take photos when you use mirror Tonic Studios cardstock. So I am sorry  for not getting better photos, unless you would see me all over them. (Mirror it is).
This is an easy to make Mixed Media card and even these who struggle with mediums can do it in totally no time.
I have a full step by step tutorial for you to use and I hope you would try to make the very similar background using Tonic adorable mica mists, glimmer paste and you dies and stencils.

Product list:

 Step by step tutorial:
1.Use dotted stencil (any kind) with Tonic Golden crystal glimmer paste over a die cut black cardstock. Try to find the die that has some edges and not a simple rectangle one.

2. Let the paste dry and mist with three colors of Tonic Mica mists. Add them generously and let them dry.

 3. Stamp the black cat from this Halloween new SNS stamp set on white cardstock using VersaMark and Black detail SNS embossing powder.  Hand cut the image. Then brush some Brushable glue over the stamped cat image and sprinkle Black Ice SNS glitter.

 4. Use same die and same misted black cardstock to make a sentiment strip.

 5. Stamp the sentiment and heat emboss with Golden Sparkle embossing powder.Arrange the sentiment over Gold mirror cardstock.

I hope that you liked my small card making tutorial and see you soon with more SNS inspiration!

Chalkboard card with CAS-ual Fridays

 Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit from Irit Shalom Designs is here again and this time I am going to share a simple, but yet interesting card made with one single large CAS- ual Fridays stamp sentiment from Dream then Do stamp set  in one of my most favorite styles- Chalkboard stamping.

As you can see I used a  stamp from Dream then Do set to make the card front over Mixed Media bottom layers and also it's not a full tutorial I would show you the layers and will explain a bit about this card making process.

CAS- ual Fridays stamp  used:

 The bottom layer was made over thick white cardstock with splashes of alcohol Ranger inks.

 The second acetate layer was made with the same alcohol inks and you can see it around the focal sentiment.

The sentiment was stamped over black thick cardstock with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
Then I added a layer of white ink over the stamped image to make this mute " chalkboard" look.
 The acetate layer were added with staples over the bottom cardstock one.

I hope that you like my vintage looking Mixed Media card and see you next moth with more CAS- ual Fridays inspiration.
