Jazz it up Mixed Media tag

Hello my dear crafty friends! Today I want to share a Mixed Media tag made with Visible image main stamp and Ann Butler's art screen, inks and background stamp.
As you can see I used Ann Butler's Stars art screen  on the top with texture paste and then painted the background with Ann Butler's Clearsnap Crafters inks in Ocean Breeze and Blueberry. The main image was also stamped with Blueberry ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
The plaid background is one of Ann Butler's Faux Quilting stamps by Unity.

 Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new Two Paper Divas post.
This new for me Feathers set was just perfect for my Mixed Media water colored new card.  As you can see the first layer is just stamped  with black ink and misted over. The outer feather is totally watercolored and added over the first layer. Isn't this sentiment just perfect? I think it is.

Amazed by you: gift card envelope tutorial

 Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here and this is my new small gift card envelope tutorial made for Ann Butler's  blog using Ann Butler's amazing Faux Quilting Stamps (by Unity), her Iridescents paints (ESF) and her Stitches stamps (by Clearsnap).
So here is my tutorial:
1. Arrange a few Stitched Nesting circles dies (Die Versions) over thick white cardstock and die cut them.

2.This is how the negative looks after the die cutting and later I am going to cut it to fit the envelope size.

3. Paint the negative with Ann Butler's Iridescents paints in Lilac, Lip gloss and Ocean Surf. Stamp over the dry painted cardstock  using Ann Butler's Stitches Background Basics Clearsnap stamp and Ranger permanent black ink.

4. Take the die cut circles and stamp over them with Ann Butler's Faux  Quilting stamps by Unity, using VersaMark watermark ink, Clearsnap Balck pigmented ink and heat emboss with black embossing powder. I used 2'' stamps from different sets and you can see the patterns here.

5. And now without any more step by step photos- my final project.
The stamped and heat embossed circles were painted with the same Iridescents colors with the add of yellow Sunshine  paint. Arrange those painted circles inside the painted negative. Cut it to the Kraft envelope size to cover the front. Cut another piece for the sentiment made with stickers.
Add the Makin's Clay fairy that was made with the mold (some Russian company mold , sorry, I can't even spell the  brand name) using Makin's Clay white air dry polymer clay. The fairy was painted with a mix of the same Ann Butler's paints and glued over envelope front.

Cut another piece from the painted cardstock and add as the closure on the envelope back. Add a piece of Velcro to close the envelope.

This technique is great for card making, ATC making and a lot more of easy to make craft projects and I hope you will use it some day.

Bloom with grace card tutorial

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new technical card tutorial.
This time I decided to show you  my try of alcohol inks technique with  heat embossed over transparency stamping.
It's pretty easy to make and the result is looking really outstanding.
 So here we go!
Step by step tutorial:
1. Stamp Inspired by Stamping Magnolias  flowers  with clear embossing ink over thick embossable transparency. If you are not sure that your transparency can be heat embossed, just try over a small piece. Most of thick transparent materials can be heat embossed and the one I used is just from the general non branded kind.Now heat emboss your stamped image with black embossing powder.

2. Die cut or hand cut the piece that you want to use as your entire card background. I used a card sized die, but you can sure hand cut the same piece with your craft knife or trimmer.

3. Use three matching colors of alcohol inks and apply them to the back of your transparency. The heat embossed image is on the front of your die cut piece. Add a few drops of alcohol blending solution to get this splattered look of the inks and stop  when you are satisfied with the result.

4. Arrange your transparency over white cardstock that was cut to the same size. 
Make the basic card in the matching color and glue  both layers over the card base.
Stamp Inspired by Stamping sentiment from the same  Magnolias stamp set with black ink over white cardstock and arrange it over lilac matting (the same color as your basic card).
Try another color combos of alcohol inks with another IBS stamps. Each and every card will become a unique art piece.
