Image card with Magenta

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Welcome to my second May project made with the most gorgeous Magenta products.

This Mixed Media card was made with stamped and heat embossed image on the background. Then the same stamp was stamped again colored and hand cut. The stencil background was made after the stamping just to add more interest to the background of this card.

I made a small step by step tutorial for you to follow (no step by step photos, but it's an easy steps to recreate).

Step by step:1. Die cut the thick white cardstock card front. Stamp the main Magenta image with VersaMark and heat emboss with black SNS powder.
2. Add small butterflies with texture paste around the stamped image over Magenta stencil and let it dry.
3. Mist the card front with TA mist.
4. Stamp the same flowers again. Hand  cut them and color with alcohol ink and add a bit of red around with marker. Arrange the flowers over the card and glue them with 3d foam glue.
5. Stamp the leaves and cut them. Color with yellow alcohol ink and heat emboss over with clear embossing powder.
6. Arrange and glue the leaves. Add random sequins and stamp the sentiment.

Greateful heart with SNS May reveal

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my third  Sparkle N Sprinkle May reveal post.
This card was made with the new and most delicious Cardinal and Holly stamp set, but yet because of the different sentiments in this set I made it just as Grateful  card.
I made the layered squares background over Sticker paper and left one single square to be covered with red glitter. 
The stamped and heat embossed image was colored with water color markers and clear Nuvo drops were added over the berries and as random drops of water over the card.
The blue mist was added then for more interest over the white frames.

Product list:
Cardinal and Holly stamp set # 895
Zig Brush Markers
Cardstock AC
Blue watercolor mist self made
Dies- craft shop

Here are some close- ups to the card:

And as always - my step by step tutorial for you to see and to use!

  Step by step tutorial:

1. Stamp the main cardinal image with VersaMark and heat emboss with Black Detail embossing powder.

2. Die cut  the nested square frames and die cut the stamped image to the smallest one.

3.Die cut the Sticker paper to the largest square and arrange the frames over it as shown.

4. Color the stamped image with Zig water color markers.

5.  Mist the whole frame with blue water color mist (not shown on photos).
Glue the colored square and fill the square gap left with Fire Engine glitter.

Family mini album with BoBunny and video tutorial

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my BoBunny video tutorial post.
I made a small, card size mini album with a new and most adorable BoBunny collection named Once upon a Lifetime. 

Family mini album by Irit Shalom

This is an easy to make project and I decided  to make it without any fancy Mixed Media add- ons so the crafters on any level can make the same album. 
If you like you sure can add stamping, stencils, mists and more mediums on the cover or inside pages, but I decided to  leave it  as is and the cardstock is so beautiful  that you don't really need to add anything.

Here  are some photos to show it and then you can see the full step by step video tutorial and to make a very similar mini album for your own family and your own memories to keep inside.

 This is how it looks from the top:

And from the spine side- one single layered  chipboard was added to the spine:

More close- ups to the album:

 And here are some of the inside pages:

Cherish the Past door hangers with BoBunny

Hello my dear crafty friends ! Irit is here and I invite  you  to my new BoBunny post.

This time I decided to use  BoBunny new and gorgeous collection Once upon a Lifetime for two similar vintage style door hangers.
Actually it can be used as tags, door hangers or vine bottle embellishments too.

 Both hangers were made in the same Mixed Media way.
First I hand /die cut them from a thick recycled chipboard.
Then I made a cardstock layer and glued it with Sticky Thumb glue runner.
As the next step both tags were covered with a thick layer of crackle paste using BoBunny stencils.
Then, when dry, they were misted a bit to get this vintage look.
Both front embellishment circles were made in the same way.
 I layered cardstock, stickers and more cardstock over one large die cut circle.

 On this hanger I used BoBunny tags die to make a tag and then die cut two crowns for the upper layer.
Both crowns were heat embossed with gold powder.

 On the second hanger I added one more die cut layer (a clock) and heat embossed the die cut key and a key hole with copper embossing powder.

 This is the fine example of this versatile collection.
A bit of mediums make it very grungy and vintage and you can make any Mixed Media project using parts of this collection.

 One last look at both tags:

 Product list BoBunny:
 Once Upon a Lifetime collection:
12''*12'' cardstock:Once upon a lifetime, Ancestors, Generations, Grandparents, Pedigree, Relatives, Traditions
