Best friends gift and card with Ann Butler

Hello my dear crafty friends !
Irit is here again and this time I want to show you how to make an easy, fast and even clean and simple gift box and a card using Ann Butler's gorgeous EZ De's Kellycraft set and Ann Butler's Clearsnap Crafters inks.
This is an overall look of this project: a wooden altered box and a matching card made for a friend.  The box was painted with white acrylic paint and then I added black heat embossed edges  for this a bit distressed look.
The front was made with three stamped 1*1'' stamps from the set with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder. This are actually what some of us call " inchies": small inch by inch shapes embellished  to become a piece of art.
I added  three of those inchies over the black cardstock that covers the glass lip of this $1 box and embellished them with two chipboard shapes  of people from Tando Creative. Each chipboard man or woman were inked with Ann's Crafters inks .
The card was made in the same style: black cardstock base, white glitter cardstock second layer and 4 inked stamped inchies , this time embellished with 6 people smaller chipboard shapes in more ink colors. I added a sticker sentiments on the top of the card and I think any friend will like this small and easy made gift.

 And  a box

Hope that you  like my project and see you again next month.

Sweet Stamps Embossing week

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to Sweet Stamps new weekly challenge and this time it's all about embossing.
I love to emboss as it gives a lot of texture other then to use the color inks only.
So this card if  " over embossed" all over as you can see.
I used the new Butterflies set released a month or so ago that I just got and I used a lot of powder colors to make the background.
Then I used Globecraft and Piccolo delicious chipboard butterflies and covered then with most gorgeous Cranberry Wine enamel . I added the stamped sentiment directly over the background ; added a few paint splashes and a few red rhinestones.
I hope you like my card and you will enter yours into our weekly challenge. We do offer some great prizes weekly , but you should be in to win them!

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to our  Sweet Stamps Masculine Birthday challenge!
Irit is here and also it's a last day to enter this challenge, you still have pretty much time to do so.
Here is my card made for this challenge: masculine colors and very general sentiment, but then it's just a good fit for the challenge.

First I made a background with Memory box mask : Texture distressed grid  and distress inks.
Then I made the focal panel with new released Backgrounds stamp using my favorite resist emboss technique: clear ink, white embossing powder and then  a lot of inking over the embossed image.
I used ATC white cardstock and then matted it over ATC black one with a bit of edge cutting.
I made the embellishment with Globecraft/Piccolo bird cage chipboard covered with embossing enamel and layered over the background shape and just added a piece of twine.
The sentiment was made with the new gorgeous sentiment set and my card was all done.
Seams like a lot of techniques, but then it's easy to make card.
Now it's your turn: just  one more day to enter the challenge! Go for it and you can win!

Inspired by Stamping July new release: Art of selfies lo

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to Inspired by Stamping new July release.
Today is the last day of this gorgeous release and we are going to show you Chevrons  stamps set. But as I made a layout, I decided to use at least three of new released sets over this project and also used Planner set and Friends   set.

I made with page with PHP  products- mixed collection and Art 3d sticker title and I think it's very trendy to make a page with Photo booth strip of selfies. Yes, actually the photo booth photos are bad selfies and always were. This is my pretty daughter Nitzan- the dark one- with her good friend Anna- the blond one- making funny faces over the strip.

 I used this Friendship sentiment to show this good friendship; lots of chevrons and other background stamps from all sets over this Mixed Media page. Then I made a kind of stamped journalling with Planner words that can be used here and not for a planning only.

I enter this to Frosted designs Stamp anything challenge

Rainbow bookmark and a card with Faux Quilting Ann Butler's Stamps!

Hello my dear crafty friends! Today I want to share my small tutorial made for Ann Butler's blog.
I made a bookmark and a card  from the single stamped piece and it coordinates in this lovely way and very easy to make.
Step 1: Stamp a few squares with different stamps with black permanent ink  over  white cardstock.

Step 2: Using all 6 Ann Butler's Crafters inks (Clearsnap) make a rainbow over the stamped images as shown.

Step 3: Cut the inked piece into two non even part; one should be a bookmark, so  cut it like one third and two thirds.

Step 4: Make the black matting for the card and for the bookmark. Add some color splashes and stamp the sentiment over both projects. Add ribbons on the bookmark top.
