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.

Peek-A-Boo

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!

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.
