A card ~I Heart {ippity}~

Hi there!
Today I will share with you a card I created for I Heart {ippity}using once again 
the awesome stamp set "Moon Beams & Heart Strings".
Look at all those stamps....Aren`t they just cute?

I firstly stamped the hearts on the card itself. 
Then I stamped them once again on a sheet of pattern paper and cut out only the hearts.
They were adhered with foam tape.
I stamped the hearts for the third time and cut out only a few of them 
which I spread here and there ;-) on the card.
I added blue glitter gel pen to the hearts and the words as a final touch!

I hope you like it!
Have a great day!

Treasured Memories ~Webster`s Pages~

Hi there!
Happy Sunday to you all!
Today I have a mixed media layout for you that I created for Webster`s Pages. I mixed here two gorgeous collections and I hand-made the flowers.

I`ve been busy with Mixed media for a long time and I just checked for FUN when I created one of my first layouts - and yes, I found this one made in October, 2009 ;-)
This layout was actually created for a workshop that I was teaching back then!
p.s. I see lots of cut outs from my Cricut Expression machine which I don`t seem to use anymore ;-)


"GIRL LAND" collection
"SUNDAY PICNIC" collection
"Every moment" unmounted stamps

{IDP 0051}"Treasured memories" phrases

{655268} Sizzix Big Shot machine
{657469} Sizzix Bigz Dies - Holiday Lamppost

And a few close-ups for you...
Please check Webster`s Pages Blog for more inspiration 
from the other Design Team girls!

Thanks for your visit !
Have a beautiful day!

My Little Man ~Imaginarium Designs~

Hi there!
I hope everybody is doing well....just like me :-))))))
This is a layout I created for Imaginarium Designs using their absolutely AWESOME chipboard!


{IDS 0030} Steam Punk Clock 
{IDS 0021} Fence/Rail track
{IDP 0003} My Little Man

{Nature Garden} collection

  • The chippie was first painted with gesso. When it was dry I used brown crackle paint from Rangers. Love the effect that when the brown paint crackles the whit epos up.
  • Because I wanted to have some "movement" on my page I decided to cut the clock in two parts and place them on the left/right side of the photo

  • I cut separately all three words from this phrase. 
  • "My little" was painted with gesso and then with Glimmer Glam. When it was dry I used sand paper to remove the glitter and give more vintage look.
  • The word "man" was also treated in the same way but this time I used black "Glimmer Glam".

  • The Fence was also painted initially with gesso and once it was dry I painted it with green crackle paint from Rangers.

  • The mini mask "chicken wire" was used like a "stamp".
  • I sprayed Glimmer Mist on a piece of aluminum folio. Dipped the mask in the paint and then stamped on the paper.
  • Then I used a black fine liner to outline the chicken wire :-)

Have a beautiful day!
Thank you for your visit :-)
