Halloween treat bag

Hello my dear crafty friends!
This is my new altered  paper bag made for Halloween.

It's a real up cycled project as  I used Pandora bag and  gave it the very  special treat: I  painted it with black chalkboard paint without any  gesso and as it's a big glossy the paint is not really permanent over. So I got this " blast" and made finger nailed doodling around the front and it looks really unique.
I made the front Halloween House panel with Tando house shaped chipboard and a lot of Paper House Productions stickers and added some IAmRoses flowers to fit their web challenge.

Follow your dreams : Mixed Media art

Hello our dear crafty friends !
This is my Mixed Media project that I made with  Die- Versions dies, 3L adhesives and a lot of WOW! Embossing powders.

The whole project today was an experiment as I never used so much adhesives combined with embossing powders and dies  and some of the effects are cool, some are hard to make and some were just impossible  and not even added to this piece.
So here we go!

I used the thick white cardstock as my " canvas" and  Collage stamp was stamped around with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Bright White powder.
As a next step I  randomly added a lot of glue strips inside the white space using 3-L E-Z runner. Then I heat embossed the strips with Primary Sunny Yellow and Peach Gleam. The result was lovely, but then, as it often happens with Mixed Media layers, it became almost not seen, but as a texture and a bit of yellow rays under the brick wall that I made later.
The brick wall was made with a Die- Versions Bricks Background die  and 3-L Adhesive permanent Sheets.

I die cut the white cardstock over this great and really working adhesive sheet and then used the cut (still with the paper backing) and VersaMark ink to make my background brick wall with Paprika powder.Then I added a few big 3D Foam Squares and heat on the left side of the piece and heat embossed them with the same powder. Sorry, as I said before: not much seen after the outer layers.
 As the die cut was already covered with embossing ink I heat embossed it with Opaque Vanilla White powder and  adhered in two pieces to make my outer brick wall.
The next use of 3L products was those to add some 3D Dotz  around and to heat emboss them with Ruby Romance powder. In between all those layers I used Gelatos, mists and inks to make this colourful textural background.
The main  Butterfly Flourish  die was cut twice. The lower layer was cut with 3d Foam White creative sheet and also the cut was easy, as the die is very delicate it was a hard work to release all small pieces from inside. I am sure that using less delicate die makes the work easier. The second problem with this  foam cut was when I heat embossed it with Olive and Chartreuse, Sherbert, Sunny Yellow  and Ruby Romance powders: it shrinked! Also I really love the result the flowers and the butterflies are much smaller that they were originally.
So I made another regular paper cut, coloured and heat embossed with Clear  Gloss Regular embossing powder and added over the first die cut layer.
The sentiment from the same stamp set was added and my art piece was all done.

Pumpkins anywhere

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my last post of Cornish Heritage Farms DT member.
6 months are gone with a wind and I move to another adventures. I want to thank the owner and the team for a lovely half a year term and I sure will use my stamps and images for free designs in the future.
So here is our challenge this time: use Pumpkin.  I stamped  pumpknis over the glossy paper twice, covered with glue glitter and clustered over this fall paper.

The pumpkins look very rich and real with this kind of coloring.

Sweet Stamps Anything goes week

 Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to our Anything goes week.
This is my new card made with a new, Sweet stamps  stencil and a new Piccolo chipboard frame.
 I made the background with Gelatos pulled over the stencil without any water added over and then misted an upper part with a yellow mist to get this background.
Then I stamped over the background with black permanent ink. The chipboard frame was inked with a mix of Gelotos and heat embossed with clear powder. The last, but not least, was this stamped sentiment that was so perfect for this card.

 And now it's your turn!
Play with us and you can win some gorgeous goodies!

Celebrate Halloween with PHP

We don't celebrate Halloween in Israel, but then, having an American family (my only sister is a New- Yorker for like 25 years) helps a bit. I do have lovely Halloween photos of my 14 years old niece Tamar and I love to make layouts for her. On the other hand I adore Halloween colors and products; really feel connected to them and PHP new Halloween stickers are so adorable that you just use them more and more, as I did on this page.
And now for some scrappy tips from making this page:
1. The cemetery gate packing is fantastic to use as the sticker backing as is; the best possible packaging ever!
2. The gate sticker is perfect as a frame for a small or trimmed to the size photo.
3. You don't need to own any Halloween themed paper and you can do yours with any black/grey/dark purple  paper from any collection and to add some texture with masks, stamps or even doodling.

Products used:
Paper House Productions
Generation paper pad

Eastern Enchantment  pad

Halloween Hauntings 3d stickers

Bats 3d stickers

Cemetery 3d stickers

 Cemetery 3d sticker

Other products:
Cobweb mask- Tando Creative
Mists- Lindy's Stamp Gang
Glitter glue, black gesso, orange ink - Ranger
 Step by step instructions:
1. Use the backside of Family Heritage with books paper from Generation pad as your background paper. Distress Labels paper from the same pad – using the back side of it - around as shown. Use Cobweb mask and black gesso to make cobweb effect on the top half of the page and let it dry.
2. Glue the Cemetery package in the middle of the page and add the Cemetery sticker over. Trim your photo to the size that fit the gate and glue it inside the sticker.
3. Cut the Candles paper from Far East pad and adhere on the bottom of the page over the photo spot. Make a row of 3d stickers making two clusters from both sides of the photo. Add the Halloween Haunting title on the bottom right of your page.
4. Add some acrylic round stickers and bats over the page as shown. Spread touches of orange glitter glue and black and orange mists around the page.
