More tiles

Here are some tiles I made this weekend and today, the first one is upside down, the butterfly shouldn't fly downwards LOL. I colored the images with prismacolor premier artist markers and few sharpies. I really liked how these colors blended.I will try to take more pictures tomorrow when it's lighter.

Altered Composition Book

Here is a jornal I made out of a composition book. I used some I think My BIG ideas patterned paper which has been taking dust for years, as I love patterned paper but I am designers paper challenged in sense of using it, lol.
I used regal rose and certainly celery, the inside is kind of cream cardstock (not shown), which is not SU! I used the stamp set Enjoy Every Moment

Tutorial: Dry embossing with punches

Here is a tutorial to make your own dry embossing template using punches.

1.Materials you will need:


stylus or empressor

punches of your choice.2. Punch out the punch you want to use for dry embossing twice and trim the edges to make a square or rectangle

3. Using your SNAIL glue the two parts together so it makes more thick template.

4. Trim the edges

and your template is done.
5. Now using your stylus or empressor you are ready to dry emboss.

6. Put the template where you want to dry emboss and turn it around, you can secure it with removable tape as well.

7: Here is the finished dry embossed boho blossoms. Enjoy and have fun!

One of a kind

I was inspired from the ribbon for the color combo: chocolate chip, regal rose and pretty in pink.
There was a little bit of celery color on the ribbon, but it wasn't visible on the piece I cut, so I didn't use celery.
Except the inks and cardstock in these colors I used regal rose flower eyelets(big-retired), cotton candy and diamond stickles and shimmery white cardstock, classy brass(seeing spots) and empressor for dry embossing, as well a corner rounder punch. I will be posting some more tutorials soon, so keep an eye for them ;)

not my usual colors

Here are few cards I made yesterday, with color combos which are not very "me". I am not that happy with the cards, as I was so tired when I was making them.
This one uses the stamp set Always and chunky glitter, I have had covered this chipboard letter U with chunky glitter 1.5 months ago and I was waiting for an opportunity to use it. The color combos of this card are: ballet blue, whisper white(ep) and rose red.

This one uses the set Pun Fun and the jumbo wheel Sweet Stars, the cardstock used is : tempting tirquoise, real red and whisper white, colored the image with prismacolor markers, added some gems and stickles, some ribbon and stamped the Happy Birthday from All holidays stamp set. This is actually a card for my nephew, as the card I send previously never arrived, and today I received back the card I sent to my aunt for her birthday :(
This one uses the set from the Occassions Mini catalog Live Your Dream, and the color combo is : always arthicoke, perfect plum, kraft and whisper white. I added some kraft taffeta ribbon and lavander stickles in the middle of the flowers. And purple brads which I think are Making Memories ( I don't remember I have had them for years)

One of a Kind

Here is another card I made. I used the color combo of bashful blue, chocolate chip and certainly celery. I sprayed each flower layer with KRYLON Make it Pearl spray which gave the flower shimmer. Unfortunatelly that can't be seen on the picture. As well I used versamart and classic chocolate chip ink, first I dabbed the stamp in versamark, then in chocolate chip and stamped the image and embossed it with clear ep.
On another note, can you believe that at work we work with Prismacolor pencils?!?! I was looking for a marker, and in my draw noticed bunch of prismacolor pencils, I was like I wanna stamp now...LOL

More Unfrogettable Coasters

So today was my first work day at PECO. I got my cubicle, my ID card and a hard hat. Now they are gonna order me some work boots, 6" steel toes, and some coveralls and work clothes for when we go out on the field. I just wonder where are going to find a size for me. I don't think they are making those in 00P or XXSP, LOL, and work shoes in size 5. LOL.
But the first work day was fun.

Here are some tiles I made for the Lansdowne Arts and Crafts show. They are similar as the one I posted while ago, but not smeared. Here are the tiles before I sprayed them with sealant

and this is after I sprayed them. The colors are little darker and more intense, as well the color of the tiles.
and a close up

I have some more projects to share, but I still need to take pictures of those.

I didn't do much creating yesterday, but had so much fun, as friends of ours (the couple who got engaged last week) came over for dinner. We had some good laughs.
Now I think I have too much fun with those onsies cards, this is one I made late last night, and it's for my friend to give to her friend who is going to have a baby girl.
I used pretty in pink and whisper white, and Friendship blooms SAB (now retired) set. versamark and white embossing powder, and dazzling diamonds glitter.

More domino magnets and tutorial

Here are some more domino magnets I made, for the tutorial scroll down.
For the red ones I used: cranberry and butterscotch alcohol inks, for the purple I used eggplant and lettuce and for the blue/green I used lettuce and stream. TUTORIAL :


Adirondack alcohol inks
Adirondac alcohol blending solution
applicator and felt replacements
leafing pen
staz-on ink pad
magnet buttons
E6000 industrial strenght glue

1. Pick the colors you want to use. Usually I use blend of two colors. In this case I used Lettuce and Stream.
2. Drop few drops of each color on the aplicator.
3. Add few drops alcohol blending solution. Sometimes I add a little of the leafing pen for metalic touch
4. Now aply the ink to the domino in pouncing motion, apply until you are satisfied with the result. I have noticed if I go over quite few times, I get little fibers of the felt stick to the domino.
5. Let dry completely.

6. The next step is stamping. Chose your stamps. My choice was Seaside.
7. Apply Staz-on ink on the stamp and stamp the image on the domino, create patter you desire.And let it dry completely.
8. The next step is applying leaf. With the leafing pen carefully color the sides of the dominoe for finish. Be careful to not touch the wet leaf, as it will leave a finger print.
9. Set it aside and let it dry completelly.
10. When it's completelly dry the next step is to glue to magnet. Be careful if you glue few at once to not have them close to one another, as the magnets will attract each other and may glue on a wrong place. With a toothpick I applied E6000 glue to the magnet buttons and pressed them on the middle of the domino, on the back side. Let it dry. And the magnets are ready to go!
