Hi ♥ Hej

Hi, Today I am showing a page with two different stamps. The first is a feather stamp I made. The technique is shown here. Second I used the baloon from the July free stamp design.

On this page I used a stencilet from A2Z Scraplets to make the entire background and then just framed it with a blue pattern paper from FabScraps.

I have stamped 2 feathers on the background and a third on paper that I cut out to create some dimension.I made the feather stamps with my Teresa Collins Stampmaker from Photocentrics with the technique shown in this link.

The chipboard I altered using blue ink and two layoers of jeans colored embossing powder.


I also stamped some ballons and added the title Hi [Hej in Swedish]. The Ballon stamp is also made using the  Teresa Collins Stampmaker from Photocentrics.It is from the July Design found here.

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 purple.

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 everything.

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.

You brighten up my day ♥

This page is used based on the October sketch challenge at A2Z Scraplets. As I had this bike photo I love I wanted to use the bike stamp from the July Free download. I also added a few swirls from the January Free Download to emphasis the happiness in the page.

Bike and swirl stamps are made using the Teresa Collins stampmaker. 
I made the background using a water color paper, lots of distress ink and even more water.

I used a scraplet word "You Brighten up my day" altered with turqouise embossing powder and black sooth distress ink.

Have a scrappy happy day!

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.
9. Enjoy!

Projects from HSN

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.
