What do you give someone that allready has everything? Well what about some home made feather earrings. They will be absolutely unique and you can be sure the receiver do not have a pair like it before.
Look at this little Cutie!!!!!! I love Christmas and i love making Christmas cards even more. I've stamp a lovely curly whirly border in black and decorated with sweetie themed cardboard embellishments that were free in a magazine. I stamped a snowflake themed background in black ink for behind the ginger bread man, and stuck on some tiny red, white and green christmas dome dots within the pattern to add a feature to the background. Why not get stamping this Christmas......it's so much fun!
Christmas is just around the corner and i'm getting in to the Christmas Spirit. This week i have made a snowman glitzy themed card for a friend. I used clear ink to stamp the snowflake background and then covered it in wow embossing powder - glitter blue. It creates such a lovely snow effect. To accomodate the glitz i used some glitter white and red card to make the Merry Christmas Sign and Snowman.
Have you made the balloon from the amazing June/July Free download? I am using it again and again every where I can fit it in.
On this page I am combining it with paper and decorations from Pink Paislee's Cottage Farm and chipboard from A2Z Scraplets. The picture is of my silly cat that just had to climb the tree we were cutting town I guess to see what the view looked like from the top.
I sprayed the chipboard with Gesso and then I gold embossed the edges.
Photocentrics and Teresa Collins Stampmaker are sponsering this month's challenge from The Studio Challenges. It is a Pinterest Challenge. Get inspired by this picture:
I must start with telling
you I really do not like purple. Nevertheless, I am always up for a challenge
so I decided to get inspired by the mask, the gold, the feathers and the color
My page is made in
different layers. I started with a purple PP from FabScraps Angelic Christmas
on which I placed a slightly smaller water color paper. I placed it a bit skew
and stitched it on.
I then added some stencils
from Crafter's Workshop and a lot of different stamps I made using the Teresa Collins Stampmaker from Photocentric.
Next I cut out two photos
and some FabScraps PP slightly bigger than the photos. I creased the PP in my hand and
then distressed the edges with Dusty Concord distress ink before I smoothed
them out again and added beneath my photos.
The Chipboard is from FabScraps and I altered them first with gold ink and then with gold embossing
powder before I distressed the edges with Black Sooth distress ink.
I stamped with a text stamp randomly on the background.
I fuzzy-cut a cage and
birds from the FabScraps Angelic Christmas PP and added a purple feather. I also punched a purple
stripe from the PP but I made it more like the colors of the photo using Picked
Raspberry distress ink.
And last I mounted
I think the stamps on the background really supports the design of the page and it is so great to have the possibility to design any stamp I want using the Stampmaker.
All old stamps I keep in a plastic yar so I can look through them every time I make a page and choose the once I think will support the page.
will show some cat jewellery that I made using a cat stamp and
some shrink plastic. These were also made for HSN.
This is what you need:
A cat photo
A good scissor
A hole punch
Some jewellery details This is how you do:
1. Trace the cat in the photo and remove the background
2. Make the photo into a negative (check this video out to see how to)
3. Make a stamp
4. Stamp on the shrink plastic
5. Punch a hole
6. Fuzzycut around the stamped image and the punched hole
7. Warm up the plastic so it shrinks
8. Add the jewellery details.
Maybe you have seen Teresa Collins at the HSN show? I missed it due to the time diffrenece. Anyway I had the priviledge to send some creations off to Teresa at the HSN show and now I am sharing them here on the blog.
First I made a celebration tag using a picture of one of my cats Cosinus. First I used Photoshop to remove the disurbing background and then I made the negative and finally the stamp. It is a very easy process.
I will be back in a few days showing a few more of my projects.
