Holidays projects with Two Paper Divas

  Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my first December post made for Two Paper Divas.
This time I am gong to share two projects that were already print published in Just Chrismas cards and Decorations magazine and I never shared them on- line.
So the first one  are those metal fancy bookmarks and I even have a tutorial for you to share.

 Product list: Cardstock- Canvas Corp, Metal foil- Spellbinders, Stamps- Two Paper Divas Embossing folders- Sizzix, Alcohol inks, ink- Ranger, Adhesive- Beacon Adhesives  Zip Dry 
Scrapbook glue, Ribbons- May Arts, Embossing Powders- WOW! Embossing Powders

Step by step: 1.Dry emboss two book mark shaped pieces of silver thick foil with Sizzix folders. 2. Paint over the embossed foil with a mix of three alcohol inks and add some alcohol blending solution for the fancy look. 3. Add matting using Canvas Corp cardstocks and glue the embossed foiled pieces over the cardstock with Beacon Adhesives Zip Dry glue. 4. Stamp the words with Two Paper Divas Holiday Bingo words 2 stamps on one bookmark, using black pigmented ink. Heat emboss it with clear embossing powder. 5. Make holes and add ribbons over each bookmark.

The second one is an altered  cross stitching hoop and as you can see I used the very same stamp set from TPD here too.
It's the most perfect sentiment set named Holiday Bingo Words 2  for all Winter projects and I just love to use it again and again.
 I used Canvas Corp background papers and Paper House stickers together with Two Paper Divas stamped sentiment.

Gift box with IBS

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here today with a small and lovely Gift box tutorial.
I know that this is a Christmas time and everyone makes Christmas presents.
But my present is for all times and can be given on Christmas day, but  it's totally general one and you can make it for any occasion.
 Here is something about this project:
I love shrink plastic a lot, but I barely use as you need pretty big shapes or stamps for this product, unless you really want to see micro mini shapes after the heating.
So those new, just released, Inspired by Stamping roses from Garden Roses stamp set were just perfect for shrink plastic experiment.
Why is it an experiment? Because I used four different coloring mediums on stamped rose before I picked the best version for the final project.
So here is my tutorial for you:
1. Stamp two roses images over  white shrink plastic. As this was an experiment I tried both Memento and Ranger Archival black inks. The  upper roses are stamped with Memento and the bottom with Archival and I like Memento better. I know that the images are not very sharp. But as we are going to cut them from the plastic sheet, it really doesn't matter.

2. First use very cheap acrylic from Plaid to paint the images.

3. Now move to distress markers from Ranger and color the second pair of images.

4. The third medium used were Art Anthology dimensional paints (Sorbet and Velvet).

5. The last paint used was High Impact from Tattered Angels.

6. Let all paints dry and cut our the shapes. Use your heat gun and heat the images.
That's how they look when shrunk.
The upper left are distress markers painted images.
The upper right are Plaid acrylics painted images.
The lower left are Art Anthology painted images.
 The lower left are Tattered Angels painted images.
As you can see the distress marker leaves a very pale color.
The bottom two have these bubbles that maybe interesting, but totally not perfect.
The only images I loved are the cheap plaid acrylic painted ones.

7. So as you can see I make a few more Plaid painted roses and arranged them over distress looked painted old metal box.
I used  Glossy Accents to glue the plastic roses and my small gift box was ready.

And here is a close- up to the roses again:

I really hope that you liked my tutorial and will try this  technique with more Inspired by Stamping stamps!
Any big stamp will work here!

Fall book box with BoBunny

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my first December BoBunny media post.
This time I made a Fall box in the same folded book box shape and used the most delicious Farmers Market collection.
It says Goodbye Summer of the front cover and Hello Fall on the spine (not much seen).
I used a wide range of BoBunny products such as cardstock, stickers, chipboards, stamps, dies, flowers and everything in between.
I also made a full tutorial, but the time is short and I decided to drop it after all.

Christmas cards with Makin's Clay

Hello my dear friends! Today I am going to share a couple of Christmas  cards I made with  embellishments from Makin's Clay.
This is a first card and as you can see this sweet big Angel on the card is made with Makin's Clay White clay in a mold and them covered with clear glitter.
You can make a lot of casting in molds with Makin's air day clay and to use on your Christmas cards and other projects.

The second card is in the very similar colors, but here I made a few Makin's Clay embellishments using Makin's Clay Christmas Nature push molds and Red Makin's Clay.
 All clay pieces were covered with glaze for the shine effect and I added some black acrylic paint over the poinsettia flowers centre.

Shrink plastic flowers box tutorial with Art Anthology

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Welcome to my first Art Anthology post for December.
After making some Mixed Media projects I decided to make something totally different and this time it's an altered small gift box and shrink plastic stamped flowers that were made to embellish this box. Both box  and glower bouquet were painted with gorgeous Art Anthology paints and it's another way to use those paints that I want  to share.
Step by step tutorial:
1. Stamp all flowers from In my Garden Unity  stamp set with black permanent ink as shown on white shrink plastic.

2.Color all stamped images with Art Anthology dimensional paints and don't try to color inside the lines as we are going to cut the images.

3. Hand cut the images and shrink them with your heat gun. That's how small they look after shrinking and the colors are very intense.

4. Paint the small Kraft box with Art Anthology  light green paint and let it dry.

5. Use Art Anthology stencil with Dazzling dimensional clear paint over the green box cover and let it dry.

This is how it looks after the second paint layer.

6. Arrange the shrinked images as you wish over the box and glue them to the cover.

This is how your lovely box looks from the side/top with all flowers on it.
