Best Day Ever card

Hello my dear crafty friends! Irit is here today and after a long few weeks without web connection I am finally back with my new fancy and warm card made with gorgeous CAS- ual Fridays stamp and Fri- die set.

After a few post with Christmas and Hanukkah projects I decided to make something general and not green or blue.
So this card is in all warm colors and made as a grid card.
I punched a lot of rectangles and squares in different sizes first. Then I colored then with warm inks and glued over a piece of sticker paper. The gaps were filled with light pink glitter and my background was done.
It takes some time to punch, color and arrange the pieces over the sticker paper. But then it was almost finished as this kind of a card doesn't need much more, but the fancy sentiment.

 The sentiment was done with CAS- ual Fridays stamp and Fri- die set Best Day Ever.
First I stamped the sentiment and then die cut it and glued over another die cut layer.

The only embellishments added were square rhinestones to keep it in this " angled" arrangement.
The layered die cut was covered with clear 3d glue that is not much seen on the photo.

This are CAS- ual Fridays products used here:

I really hope that you like my card and please visit our CAS- ual Fridays shop as we have a lot of great deals in the shop!

Altered cross stitching hoop : Give Thanks

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here today and I am going to share my Thanksgiving altered project made with totally non fall / non Thanksgiving BoBunny collection.
This week  the DT members were challenged to make Thanksgiving project. I was also challenged  to make Mantel decoration. So from the beginning there were two major problems with this project.
 First of all I didn't even know what this one was. Then I was told that this is a fireplace decor. Living in Israel  the fireplace is the least used thing in our life. So I just made a nice home decoration and took a photo over the only shelf I have in my home. Really. There is a TV screen over each and every other drawer or shelf in my house, so imagine that you have a fireplace and my decoration is a part of your fireplace space.
The second problem was that I never got any Fall or Thanksgiving paper collection.
So this Floral Spice new and most gorgeous collection was the closest to the Thanksgiving that I had and yes, it worked!

I tried to make the simple and affordable and something that any crafter can make with just one BoBunny collection without die cutting, stamping or Mixed Media add- ons.

The background was made with two pieces of cardstock; the upper  circle  edges were covered with BoBunny Gold Glitter paste.
Then some more layers were added using Combo Stickers, cardstock hand cuts, a couple of Layered chipboards etc.
Two flower clusters were made with a lot of hand cut paper flowers from one single cardstock piece and layered with American Crafts foam dots.
The circled saying was made with Thickers from another new and adorable collection- Something Splendid.
The Floral Spice  collection has it's own lovely Thickers, but the color was too dark to be seen over my decoration hoop and I decided to use gold for the brighter color.

 I added some gold glitter paste dots over the paper flowers and around the hoop.
Product list:
Floral Spice collection 12'' cardstock- Floral Spice, Owls, Intrigue, Take Flight, Memories
Floral Spice Combo Stickers
Floral Spice Layered chipboards
Something Splendid Thikers
Gold Glitter Paste

American Crafts:
Sticky thumb glue  runner
Sticky thumb adhesive foam dots

 I hope that you like my " non fireplace" altered piece!
Thanks for being here with me today and see you in a week with my first Christmas project!

Happy Hanukkah with CAS- ual Fridays

Hello my dear crafty friends! Irit is here today and I am going to share one more Hanukkah card.
Hanukkah is just around the corner and as CAS- ual Fridays have the most beautiful Hanukkah stamps and Fri- dies this is a time to get yourself a few new items from the shop and to make a few new Hanukkah cards.
This time I decided to stay with die cutting  only and there is no stamping on this new card. But then there are a few background techniques that can be useful for non  stamping crafters or for these who want to make a set of cards with just dies and to try some Mixed Media easy techniques.

This card was made over the thick white cardstock without any patterned paper (not so much of  Hanukkah cardstock can be found in the shops).
I tried to stay in our traditional Hanukkah colors of blues and silver, but believe me you can use purples and gold, black and white or even reds and oranges of candle flames.
This is how it looks from the side: flat and fits the regular cheap mailing envelope.

And here is the main part- with both CAS- ual Fri- dies.

I used two sets of dies for this card: the first is the new and just released Happy Hanukkah Fri- dies set and the second is the older,but still much loved ........ Fri-n dies set.

Happy Hanukkah

And I made a full step by step photo tutorial for you all too.

1.Cover the card front with 3 strips of painters tape (repositionable tape to use for painting lines).

2.Use inks (I used American Crafts Mixed Media inks for this card) to ink the first strip on the card and then move the strips and ink all other parts with different blue ink colors.

3. Die cut the Star of David as shown and then arrange it inside with colors in the different spots.

4. Cover the card front with the stencil and use translucent texture paste over the stencil.
Let it dry for a few minutes.

5. Heat the dry paste and use silver foil and bone folder to add some distressed silver foil over the stencilled parts. This is not the usual way to use the foil, but  it worked without any laminators or other fancy tools. Anyway all I wanted is the get some silver over the texture paste lines, not to foil the stamped images.

6. Add some silver glitter drops over the die cut star as shown and let them dry.

7. Die cut the Happy Hanukkah and heat emboss it using VersaMark ink and glitter blue embossing powder.

8.Arrange the card and add more glitter glue drops over the card front.
Happy Hanukkah to you!

 I really hope that you like my Hanukkah card and my small tutorial.

Something Splendid Girls Only mini album in the box with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here and today  am going to share my Girls Only mini album in the handmade box that was created with the new and most gorgeous BoBunny Something Splendid paper collection.

Something Splendid collection is vintage style girly collection with friendship orientation and as a such it's a perfect one for girlfriends albums, layouts, cards or tags.
So  as this week the DT members were challenged to make projects using stickers I made this mini album in the box using this paper collection, lots of this collection stickers, layered chipboards and some other BoBunny and American crafts products.

I tried to make this box pretty flat, so the recipient of this box and tag album can  carry it in the handbag.
I used the collection tag cardstock as my reference for the size. There are 8 tags in this cardstock and the size of the box fits the tag mini album that is inside the box.
I didn't add the photos (should be on the back of each tag and trimmed to size), as this is a present for my own girl and she will add the photos of here own girlfriends later.
The front was embellished with cardstock pieces and then a few Combo stickers were added on the " seen" side on the front. The flap was embellished with layered chipboards and one single blue flower was added over the chipboard piece.

The opened flap was embellish with more Combo stickers and I enve used the side leftovers as some sticker strips.

The top was embellished with one more layered chipboards and it actually looks like a book cover.

And now the tags that were connected with a simple binder ring into a mini album.As you can see I added some gold transfer sayings over some of them and some Combo stickers over the others.
Each tag was matted over American Crafts black textured cardstock; the same cardstock was used as the base of my handmade box.

 And now some more of the tags for you to see:

And just to say: this project is easy to make and you don't need any fancy  or expensive tools to make it in just two hours. Just buy Something Splendid BoBunny collection and you are done!

Product list:
BoBunny Products:
Something Splendid cardstock 12''- Ritzy, Attagirl,Something Splendid

CAS- ual Fridays November release-Pear Tree Fri-Dies

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Welcome to Day 6 and last of our new CAS- ual Fridays Holiday release.
Today we release the Pear Tree Fri- die that is the fit for the older Partridge in  Pear Tree stamp set.
This set has two sentiments and one of them is for Christmas.
But then after doing so many traditional colored pieces I decided to go a bit crazy and made this totally colorful card over Kraft cardstock.
And I love it!

The oval was made with Distress Oxides inside the oval die cut.
Then the main image was stamped, die cut and colored and glued over the card front with n3d foam glue.
The sentiment was stamped on the bottom and I also added a few small snowflakes " tone- on tone" over the oval.

CAS- usl Fridays November release-Naughty'isms stamps & Naughty Fri-Dies

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Welcome to Day 5 of our new CAS- ual Fridays Holiday release.
The new Holidays stamp and die set is just a perfect one for a gift card, gift wrapping or...
This time I made  something that is new to me and maybe very new on the web: card with a box on it.
I made the layered card with new BoBunny Holidays collection and made a hand made box to fit the square card. Then the box was embellished as a present with sticker ribbons and stamped embellishments.

 Here you can see the stamped stockings and some of the die cut sentiment.

 More close- ups for you to see:

 And here you can see that the upper layer is a box.
Actually after I glued it I thought that it can stay opened on one side and the gift card or cash can be added inside.
But ... Next time.

 Naughty Fri- dies
