Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here and this is my last post for WOW! Embossing Powders. After 3 years on the team ( and one year on USA WOW! team before) I just decided to move to another crafty adventures.
Those were great 4 years with a lot of blog hops, new and fantastic products and lovely team mates.
So here is my project made for VLVS blog hop, but not my last post for VLVS company. It's like MAGIC: the day I left WOW! team, I was invited to design for VLVS company and this is one of my new adventures.
So this tag I made is a kind of a closure and a kind of the new beginning.
For a long period I wanted to design for VLVS; I even guest designed there a year ago and I always believed that I am a good fit for this company. So the sentiment on my tag just says so : I believe ... Anything I can imagine I can do. And for the closure: there are two WOW! powders that I can't live without: Clear Gloss embossing powder and Opaque Bright White. Those are the powders that I used every single day on every single project as I just love to emboss all my stamped images. So the Banksy Rain under umberlla girl together with this Cracked background were made with resist emboss techniques and double embossing with clear powder over the whole piece.
I really hope that you liked my work and I am sure we will meet again here and there.
I wish the team all the best and I thank you all for a pleasure to be a part of such a great company for a long time.

July means Summer for us here in Israel. Summer means shore and sea. Yes, we live near the sea and also I personally don't like sand and sun as the country we do love it a lot. So today I made a card that is totally dedicated to celebration of sea and sun and it's totally different from the usual cards that I make.
First I don't usually make cards that celebrate general things, such as seasons, nature or life in general. Then usually I don't make cards that have scenes stamped over the themed patterned paper. So this card card is not my usual one, but I like the result a lot.
First I made the die cut with a word CELEBRATE from the patterned paper and outlined it inside.
Then I made a stamped scene with brown pigmented ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. As you understand ALL STAMPS are from Inspired by Stamping new releases. The first set I used is a new Seaside set and it's just a pure pleasure for all who love maritime stamps.
I added some birds stamped with black permanent ink on the top and the the big word SEA was stamped to complete the sentiment . I used the word stamp from the Seaside Sentiments new set and believe me, this is the best sentiment set ever!

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my very first post made for ARTplorations!
This time I decided to make a layout... I was a primary scrapper once and then moved to stamping and Mixed Media, but I still scrap and make layouts and keep own family memories alive.
So this layout is about our cruise to Cyprus last year.
I used Create magazine sketch that was just perfect for 3 photos layout.As we didn't know anyone on the cruise and were too shy to ask to take our mutual photos, the only photos we have are of each other by each other. I used themed paper and embellishments, but altered the background with stencils, texture paste, glitter and inks.
And ARTplorations stencils were just the great fit to this altered background.
I used Bubbles stencil with Peacock Feathers distress ink over the patterned paper and those are all circles you can see as the background.
Then I added Confetti Circles over the upper part of the basic cardstock and those are those lines in the sky.
The last, but not least are my glittered birds in the sky. Made with Some Birds stencil and white texture paste and then clear glitter was added to the wet paste and I heat embossed it a bit. The great thing about stencils is that you can use them from both sides and I really used it from the back to make the birds to fly to the " no photos" side of my layout.
So as you can see- stencils are not just for Mixed Media! If you are a scrapbooker you still can use them on your pages and to make each and every page unique.

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here again and this time I am going to show you how to make you own unique embellishment using a clear stamp you already have and some ETI products.
Lot of times we want to add a 3d embellishment and we only have stamps. Also it's possible to make a good heat embossed stamped image and even to make it like a 3d sticker, it's still a paper embellishment and not something like plastic or metal one. But with a few easy steps and a lot of waiting time we can do own own resin embellishments with any clear or rubber stamp we own.
Supply list for casted piece:
Stamp- Inspired by Stamping Water Lily
Mold- Easy Mold Silicone Putty - ETI
Cast- Easy Cast Clear casting epoxy ETI
Cardstock, glitter cardstock: American Crafts
Stickers: Paper House Productions
Step by step instructions:
1. Make a mold with ETI Easy Mold Silicone Putty and a big clear stamp.
After you take the stamp out it stays a bit dirty (like you have purple stamp), but you can easy clean it with dish soap and warm water.
2. Color the inside of you mold with shimmer pigments. If you ask why I decided to color it before the casting and not after the cast is done- here is the answer. Those pigments are non permanent. If we color over the dry casted piece we need to use some glaze unless we want them to leave pigmented colors all around. With this method of casting over the pigments , the pigments are casted inside the piece and the outer surface is crystal clean.
3. Cast the piece with ETI Easy Cast Clear Epoxy , mixing it according to manufacturer's advice. Let it dry for at least 24 hours. As this is a very thin layer it may take even more.

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my first blog post made for Rubber Dance stamp company for July.
This time I played with a very new , just released Envelope stamps set and I need to say that I am hooked! I love this easy to make Mail art and also I am totally new to it, I am sure I will do much more of post cards, envelopes and package covers in the future. So much fun! So easy! So different and so creative!
I just stamped the stamps from this delicious set over and over with different inks, added some Gelato colors and a bit of post washi tapes and this envelope was made. To keep the address space white I used book shaped die cut (Spellbinders) as a mask. And if you like to make Mail art- Rubber Dance new Envelope set is just the best of the best!

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my very first Die Versions July post in my blog.
This time I am going to share a Mixed Media card. Yes- this card was made with stencils, texture paste, inks, embossing powders and glitter. So this is a true Mixed Media piece. But on the other hand, this card is a card. With a focal point (also a bit cluttered) and a small sentiment and it's not this heavy stamped/misted/painted Mixed Media piece we are used to think of when we see the term " Mixed Media".
So this is my kind of Mixed Media: lots of mediums and no mess. And then I just added a couple of Die Versions June release dies as my large focal card point.
Both Hula girl and Tiki boards were die cut from simple thick white cardstock.
The Hula girl was layered over double sided adhesive piece and glitter was added over the open adhesive (now you can see it inside the die cut ). The Tiki boards die was covered with clear embossing ink and then I used at least 5 colors of embossing powders and embossing glitters to get this look. I also added a simple heat embossed with yellow powder punched circle as a " sun" on the back of my die cut cluster. The " sun rays" background was made with a stencil, texture paste , embossing powders and color mists.
I hope you like this card and the techniques I used with Die Versions new dies.
