Make home decoration with 4 ATC cards

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my July Inspired by Stamping inspiration post.
Today I am going to show you how to make 4 very similar ATC cards and then to make a lovely home deco piece out of them.

 Usually most of us think that ATC cards are just for trading.
But look how lovely is this home decoration piece made over the wooden panel with lovely cardstock, some central embellishments cluster and all 4 ATC  over it.

And  here is a quick tutorial I made for you to use and to make the similar project with Inspired by Stamping stamp set here:

Inspired by Stamping Words Of Inspiration II stamp set

Words of Inspiration 2 set

Step by step tutorial:
1. Arrange 4 stamps from the set inside your Misti tool .Use dark pigmented ink to stamp them all together.
I used dark brown ink as my black was dry, but it actually doesn't matter as I heat embossed it later with black powder.

2.Heat emboss the stamped sentiments and then cut to ATC size.

3.Use 4 different stencils and add texture paste over the cards, but try to leave the stamped images without any white paste over them.

4.When dry use mists (not shown) and sparkling acrylic paints to get this colorful look for your cards.

5.Add some crackle glaze around the cards and sprinkle some micro beads over the wet glaze.

 6. Arrange the cards over the cardstock glued to the wooden  panel. Add the central embellishments spot.

Use spray inks with Tando

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to our Use mists Tando week!
This small project was made over Tando Mixed Media board with other Tando products (shown later) and only MISTS!

I used a mix of copper and dark orange mists over the chipboard pieces that were previously covered with a thin layer of white gesso.
 The first layer was masked with texture paste background.
Then Industrial wing was added on it.
I am not sure that you can see the intermediate layer made with Tando Book plate under  two more layers.
The last  chipboard layer is  very old Tando Dragonfly(not in the shop anymore, sorry) and then metal and resin pieces were added.
I added some more texture with micro beads and made the sentiment with epoxy sticker.

 Mini book plates

Christmas in July with Topflight stamps shop

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second Christmas in July Topflight Stamps shop post.
A week ago I shared my blue colored Winter card made with IndigoBlu most gorgeous "Looks like rain, dear" stamp set.
Today I want to show you how the very same stamp set can be used for traditional colored 3d central table/shelf art recycled piece.

This art piece was made using the clear plastic spool that was left after I finished the ribbon  from this spool.
I covered  the bottom with patterned cardstock and covered the top with stamped and die cut circle using the background stamp from this stamp set:

Stamping was made using black pigmented ink and clear embossing powder and then misted with red mist.
The deer from the same set was stamped  in the same heat embossing technique, hand cut and glued over the $ store plastic Christmas greenery.
The sentiment was stamped with green permanent ink and then die cut and glued over the leftover circle from the previous step.
This is just an example of an easy and frugal kind of Holiday crafting.
Everyone has those plastic spools . Anyone can buy a $ store green leaves.
Now go to Topflight Stamps shop, pick this adorable stamp set and make a few of those altered spools that can be used as place cards stands or table decorations.

 And just to show you how adorable this 3d piece is I took another photo with different staging.

 I really hope that you liked my altered project today and see you in a week with something totally different.
If you want to see more of my work you mostly welcome to my own blog!

ATC deco art - wait for a full tutorial

This is an art piece I made with a full tutorial (will be posted in a couple of days).
For now I just want to use this art piece for some blog challenges- so I post it without the tutorial.

This is a piece made with 4 smae, but different ATC cards  that then were arrnged over the Studio 75 cardstock (glued to wooden panel); then I added the central embellishments spot and made it as an encouragement decoration.
As I already said- wait a couple of days for a full tutorial to be posted here in my blog.

 I enter it to some web challenges:
Studio 75- Home decoration

Lindy's stamp gang- I used most of the challenge colors on this piece to mist the ATC cards

As most of the colors are primary or close to that I got more colors on my pieces when misting wet on wet mists.

Steampunk tag - BoBunny Media post

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second July Media post made for BoBunny.
Most of you think that BoBunny is a company with most adorable. but quite cute products.
To show you your mistake I make dark, industrial and even Steampunk projects with BoBunny and Pentart products and this tag is a good example of all possibilities you get when  you have BoBunny cardstock, dies, stamps and mediums.
So this is my Love today Stempunk tag made with Double Dot BoBunny cardstocks, new dies,  stencil, copper transfers, leftover chipboards frame and a few Pentart mediums and paints.

My favorite medium on this piece is the Iron paste that I used over simple cardstock die cuts. Don't you think it looks like a real rusty iron? It is!

Prickley Pear Summer

 Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my last July project made for Prickley Pear Rubber stamps company.
This is a Summer themed day on the PPRS blog and here is my take for this day:True friend card
I used direst white heat embossed stamping over Kraft cardstock and then water coloring over the stamped images.
The background color was made with distress inks.
The upper flowers were stamped on white cardstock with black powder heat embossing, hand cut and water colored.
The only embellishment I added are some pearls.

 Stamps used:
Bold Daisies
Flowers 2 - Sentiment

Fly away tag

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new post!
This is a tag made with Scrapmatts stencils and chipboards and Papericious paper collection.
It's a kind of encouragement tag and I made the double sentiment saying : Go and find yourself and then fly away".

Both sentiment parts are arranged over the Scrapmatts chipboard pieces made with cardstock and stickers.
Chipboards were painted with Prima Spark and Metallic paints.
I used two stencils for the textured background, but only the lower one is still seen.

 I enter this to some web challenges:
Simon Says Monday challenge- On the edges
City crafter- Something that begins with S- Stencils, sayings, summer
Altered embellishments for Mixed Media Monthly- all chipboards , die cuts and even flowers are altered with paints and mediums

Captured Blessed Moments layout

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Today I want to share a layout made with Scrapmatts chipboards and Kaisercrafts paper collections.

 I scrapped my adorable grand kids again (as always) and made it with Kaisercraft July challenge inspiration.
The 12*12'' cardstock is from Provincial collection; the die cuts are from Treasured Moments and from Generations.
 The only add- ons are Scrapmatts chipboards and s bit of black paint over the chipboards and around the page.

 Here are some close- ups to the different  spots of this page:

I also added some stencilled texture over the " white spaces" of this page- hardly seen as it's pearled white paste on almost white cardstock.

I enter this piece to Kaisercraft blog challenge for July
