Saturday Spotlight with Inspired for Stamping

Hello my dear crafty friends!
It's my week for Inspired by Stamping Saturday Spotlight feature and I made a small background tutorial for all IBS  newsletter readers and all my crafty friends around the world.
This is my finished card with this  special background
  And  now for  my step by step tutorial:

1. Stamp a mix of small and mediums doilies using permanent color inks and Delicate Doilies set.
Make it random and much bigger than your finished size desired card as we never know which part of the background we are going to use after all.

2. Stamp a couple of big large doilies using clear embossing ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. I made like 4-5  stamped images and tried to keep them separated.

3. Mist the heat embossed piece with a dark shade of mist and then wipe the surface with a  baby wipe.
Let it dry or dry it with your heat gun. Trim the best looking piece to your desired card size. Try to keep at least two large doilies seen.

4. Stamp one large doily (different one) over Kraft cardstock with one of the ink colors you used on the background (I used dark pink). Hand cut the doily and trim it as shown. Stamp the sentiment- I used   Sugar and Spice new released set sentiment- with clear ink and white  embossing powder. Punch or die cut a circle and glue it over the  hand cut doily.

5. Trim the basic Kraft card and add the background over it. Glue the sentiment and add a few random pearls around.

Travel canvas with PHP and Plaid

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Today I am going to show you my new altered canvas made with Paper House Productions and Plaid products as a part of our mutual  blog hop. 
 I wanted to use the most gorgeous molds I got with Travel items, so I made this Travel canvas and I think we all can see how  lovely both company products are

Products used:
Old World paper pad
Paris canvas stickers
Journey 3d stickers
Travel 3d stickers

Bark Brown Acrylic paint FolkArt
Yellow Ochre Acrylic paint FolkArt
Travel mold
Mold melts Milk color
 Mod Podge Satin
Sponge brushes

 Stone path stencil- Sweet Stamps com

Step by step:
1. Paint the canvas with a mix of Bark Brown and Yellow Ochre with roller and foam brushes. Let it dry.  Add texture with the same paints using Stone Path mask and let it dry. If you don't want to wait for a long time you can sprinkle clear embossing powder over the masked path and to heat emboss it , as I did after all.
2. Fill Travel mold with Milk color Mold Melts and let it dry . Trim the edges of all molded shapes. Paint the shapes in the desired colors with FolkArt acrylics.
3.Cut  a map circle from Old Word paper and glue it with Mod Podge over the canvas all over the paper piece. Let it dry.Tear a few more strips from the same Map paper and glue them with Mod Podge over the canvas as shown. Add a few  drops of  brown paint to make some shading around the paper strips.
4.Make the upper title with a word World cut out of the same paper, canvas sticker from Paris set and a cut piece of Journey sticker . Add a subtitle " Trip of lifetime", bubble sticker and suitcases as shown. Cluster the molded pieces as shown.

Celebrate with new Die Versions dies

Hello my dear crafty friends!
This is Irit here again with another new card made with a new, just released, cut- out Celebrate die and a new lovely font called  Spaghetti.
 This time I tried to be more artistic and made this kind of a Mixed Media card with Gelli Plate print background and a mixed   sentiment, made with a cut out die and some die cut letters. I made it as
 " Celebrate yourself" one . We often forgot to celebrate ourselves and just celebrate our family and friends. So once a year make it for yourself!
   This time I used just a strip with cut out  sentiment and not the whole piece of paper to cover the background. I glued this strip with 3d foam dots and added this totally funky letters from the new font.

Want to make some similar cards? All new cut out dies and fonts are in Die Versions shop!
Just go and grab some!

Make your own wood tutorial and wall art with PHP

This is my Faux wood tutorial made for those who love wooden pallets on the wall, but can't buy them as they are far away from any craft shops, like I am. So I decided to make my own " wood" and it's quite a success.
Here is my tutorial:
1. Take an old tooth brush and cut every second row with scissors. Add gesso over Kraft cardstock using your new low cost  crafty tool.
2. Add a thick layer of clear embossing powder over the wet gesso and heat emboss it completely.

3. Add strokes of brown Gelato or any other water color brown paint  and wipe it with baby wipe.

4. Add a mix of brown colors with distress ink and copper mists over the first colored layer from step 3. Add as much as you want to make your " wood" darker or lighter. As all colors are not water resist, you can wipe some paint if it's too dark, as I did with my final project.

5. Using the simple metal ruler make black lines with black Gelato or any other black marker you have.
You wooden piece is done. Cut it to strips to make a pallet  as I did for my final project.

And this is my Live- Love- Laugh " wooden"  wall art:
I used a package of Paper House Productions sticker only and it's totally a HIT!
 If you want you can add more  stickers, such as butterflies or birds or flowers. I wanted this project to be mostly clean and simple so we can enjoy both my faux wood and the gorgeous PHP stickers.
