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.

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.

BoBunny product list:
Sunshine Bliss cardstock collection 12*12'': Delight, Peace, Cheerful, Inspiration, Happiness
Sunshine Bliss Combo Stickers
Sunshine Bliss Layered Chipboards
Sunshine Bliss Noteworthy die cuts
Sunshine Bliss Thickers
Double Dot Berry Vintage cardstock
Expressions stamp
Clover Pansy flowers
Buttercup Dahlia flowers
Color Wheel  Mixed Media inks Vicki Boutin by American Crafts
Clear embossing powder AC
Other- lace

Thanks for being here with me today and see you in a month with new and exciting BoBunny releases.

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!
