You make me happy double tag with Honey Bee stamps

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here again and this time with my altered Mixed Media double tag made with Honey Bee stamps.
I love tags! I think those small art pieces are gorgeous and you can make then combined of two or even more tags one over another for the depth and texture.
So this tag was made with actually two separate tags that were connected then one over another.
So the backgrounds and the texture were made with Tando stencils, DecoArt texture paste and a lot, really a lot of DecoArt paints and mists.
After those tags were totally dry I wanted to stamp with Honey Bee stamps over and it was Mission Impossible as the texture was so massive and I had no free space to stamp.
But wait! There is a great way to add stamping over texture when you make your Mixed Media art and it is to stamp over white tissue paper with permanent ink and to glue the whole tissue piece over the creases with gel medium.
So easy to do and so effective!
And that was what I did: I stamped Honey Bee HAPPY EVERYTHING sentiment over the tissue and glued it in the middle of the textured clock.
Then I added a few stamped flowers with the same ink, but directly on the tags using Honey Bee Color My World flowers and embellished with a few wooden elements.
This tag can be a good one for men in our lives too: colors are not too girly and yes, they can  make us happy sometimes!

And if you want to see more of my art you can follow me over my Instagram account @iritshalom2000!
I enter this to a couple of web challenges too:
Things to alter- finally I used their products too and thanks!

Rubber Dance ATC tutorial

Hello my dear friends! Irit from International design team is here  and  I welcome to my Rubber Dance  tutorial.
Today I am going to share an ATC trio made with the new Rubber Dance stamps.
 Those new stamps are just perfect for the ATC size and it was just fun to make all three ATC cards at once in a very similar way.
So here is my step by step tutorial:
1. Stamp 3 vintage ads stamps from Vintage Ads new set with clear embossing ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder.
Sorry, i just forgot to take the  photo of this step, but it's easy to follow even without the photo.
2. Mist all three cards with  Tattered Angels mists and add a bit of Glam paint. This paint is very watery and reacts just like mists.
Let your cards dry.

3.Stamp butterflies, a bee  and  a dragonfly over white cardstock using clear embossing ink and black embossing powder.I used the following Rubber Dance stamps: Bee, Dragonfly and Butterflies from Antique Botanicals.

4. Hand cut the stamped and heat embossed images and paint them with High Impact paints (very similar to Silk Acrylics).
Glue the hand cut insects over the ATC cards  totally randomly.

5. Add Tim Holtz saying stickers over the cards and ink the edges with red  and teal paints as shown.

Live to create and Create ot live art tag

Hello my dear crtfty friends and welcome to my very first post made for Susan K. Weckesser blog.
This month we, the designers, were asked to make something with houses. So this is my first post for the theme and I just decided to make a nice and creative tag.
Here is a small tutorial I made for you.
1. Make the basic Kraft cardstock tag and add the second tag, a bit smaller size, made from Susan K. Weckesser cardstock named Color Burst.
 the edges with Susan's new Clearsnap Color Pop Mini inks. On this photo I used the Ice one, but later I added the Kiss ink too.
Glue the cardstock tag over the Kraft one and make a hole on the top for the ribbons.

2. Stamp some flowers with Susan's  Unity Celebration of Simple stamp . This set includes 4 flags, but I just wanted the  flowers for this tag. I used Susan's Color Pop Mini Mystery Archival Dye ink  and I didn't try to make the nice stamping as this is just a background add- ons to the patterned cardstock.

3. Mask Tando flat house shaped chipboards with some tape (washi or painter's one, whatever you have) and stamp the lines with another  Susan's stamp from the same  Celebration of Simple stamp set. This time I used clear embossing ink and heat embossed the roof lines with black embossing powder.

4.Cut two cardstock pieces from Susan' s Color Burst  cardstock (the back side this time) and glue them over the houses front.
Paint the roof of each house with Color Pop  Mini Kiss ink, ink the edges of those houses too and heat emboss with clear embossing powders.

5. From this step and on I didn't make any step by step photos as it's clear visible.
I hand cut two sentiment strips using Susan's Live in Color Tags cardstock and inked the edges with the same Kiss  ink.
The small doors and windows chipboards were heat embossed with white embossing powder and glued over the houses.
I also added the white chipboard fence. Both houses were  adhered over the tag and I added some hand cut cardstock  banners under the sentiment.

The double ribbon was tied on the top.

And yes- in my house I live to create and create to live!

I hope you liked my small tutorial and see you in a few days with another Houses inspiration.

Thanks a melon card with Two Paper Divas

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new post made for Two Paper Divas.
This time it's a Summer kind of a card made with the new TPD Melon Love  stamp set both images and a sentiment and colored with watercolors. I used plain solid cardstock that was die cut to make this card and made the circle shape sentiment with Die Versions dies. The smallest possible  red rhinestones were added over the card to fit the watermelon image.
I really hope that you like my almost CAS card.

Tando/ Stampendous week: My sparkle Summer garden

Hello my dear friends!
Irit is here and this is project for Anything goes week- made with my new delicious Stampendous products that I got for our Friday blog hop.
So as this is a Summer time I decided to make a summer project and made this double arch with Tando and Stampendous products all together.
All Stampendous Mixed Media products that I used to make my project can be found on Tando site!
I used Tando arches the frame as a background and added the inside piece over it.
Both background and outter piece were stencilled with Stampendous stencil that is a part of KAFEE KLATCH stamp set and DecoArt White Modelling paste.  Then I heat embossed the wet paste with Spoon full of Midnight and Spoon full of Snow powders.On the background I also stamped with  KAFEE KLATCH  stamp set and heat embossed it with Golden Sand Embossing powder from Frantage Encrusted Jewel Kit Bronze.The outter frame was also stamped with Fiesta  stamp set and teal ink.
The outter frame was heat embossed with Spoonful of Midnight powder.
Both parts were painted with DecoArt Media Line paints inside and then arranged one over another.
Tando Moroccan Grid chipboard piece was painted with DecoArt Turquoise paint and added over the arches as shown.
As the next step I stamped the flower and the leaves from Fiesta stamp set,heat embossed them with black powder and painted with a mix of paints. Some glaze was added over together with Spoonful of Snow powder.

Just add color and have a lovely day!

Hello my dear crafty friends!
This is my small art piece made for Honey Bee Stamps as one of Instagram projects.
I made the stencilled (Tando stencils) card shaped piece with texture paste and a lot of Tattered Angels mists and paint and then stamped over it using Honey Bee Color My Word stamp set and Honey Bee Happy Everything stamp set.
 This is a problem to stamp over glittery paint such as a paint I used here, so the stamping is not much seen unless you enlarge the photos.
The word COLOR was painted inside as this is a bold  stamp and I added this painted chipboard & sign frm Tando to make the statement : Just add Color & havr s lovely Day!
So just add some colors into your life and your days will be lovely!
