A Card Tutorial {Sizzix}

Hello everyone!
It`s Sunday and It`s time for my Sunday Sizzix project.
I`m here today to share with you
how I created a card using one of the new Thinlits die cuts as a base for a doily card.
{655268} Sizzix Big Shot Machine
{658947} Sizzix Thinlits Die - Doily & Doily Border
{658951} Sizzix Thinlits Die- Ornate Hanging Sign
{658605} Sizzix Thinlits Die- Doilies, Lovely
{658607} Sizzix Thinlits Die - Flowers, Intricate
{657906} Sizzix Framelits Die Set - Frame, Snowflake
{657524} Sizzix Sizzlits Medium Die - Card Phrases Set #3

As a base for your card prepare folded in two white cardstock with size 13 x 13 cm.
Place on top the Thinlits Doily Die...
Make sure that the doily die comes above the top folded part of the cardstock!
In this way the two doilies will be connected to each other!
This is what the result should be once it's ready.
Use pattern paper to die-cut different embellishments for your card.
N.B. The ornate part of the Hanging Sign Die was cut twice 
- Once using pattern paper and once using white cardstock.
- Remove parts of both sides so they won't come out of the card
N.B. I didn`t use all the die-cuts you see on the photo below.
Create your own background on front of the card by using a floral
stamp, embossing ink, embossing powder and ink (of your choice).
Add Liquid Pearls for decoration.
I left the back side of the card natural i.e. white.
Decorate your card with the die-cuts.
Adhere by using not only glue but also foam squares
which will give a perfect dimension on your card.
Die-cut the phrase "For  You" once using white cardstock
and once using black cardstock.
Use the black die-cut phrase as a shadow.

I Hope you enjoyed my card tutorial today!
Have a Creative Sunday!

Canvas Projects {Imaginarium Designs & Webster's Pages}

Hello Everyone!
Today I`d love to share with you two of 
my last projects I created using totally awesome
chipboard from Imaginarium Designs and
gorgeous products from Webster's Pages
Yes, I love our chippies 
and I always have FUN creating with them!
Both my projects today are made on canvas and on each
canvas you`ll see my girl or my boy smiling.
 As a matter of fact this time my kiddos
requested I scrap them separately and at the same time...ha ha!
This wasn't a difficult task for sure - I had a blast!
{IDDL 0004} Two Hearts with Cross Flourish
{IDP 0036} Wishing You Happiness
{IDBK 0003} Paris Door Album
{IDT 0014} 4 Small Butterflies
{IDFR 00013} Anna Frame
{IDT 0015} Dress (Smaller)

{Everyday Poetry} Collection
{Western Romance} Collection
{Country Estate} Collection
{In Love} Trim Pack

Other Products I used:
{Damask} - 12 x 12 Art Stencil

The cute chipboard dress was painted with white paint twice -
just to be sure that it`s completely covered!
Puffy paint was added only on top and then decorated
with pattern paper, lace and resin (from Webster's Pages)

Love the hearts chippie....I used part of it in previous projects
so I had over the "hearts' mask". 
What I did here was:
1. I applied generously :-) modelling paste to achieve more dimension.
2. Once it was dry I added puffy paint to make it fluffy :-)
3. My final touch was to adhere tiny fussy-cut flourish

And this is the final result...
I added the painted with Glimmer Glam "happiness" 
I used the word "happiness" separately....
Once again the chipboard was treated with puffy paint
so it`d match my hearts.
The bigger butterfly was colored in with liquid paint.
The stunning "Anna Frame" was treated with a few
colors Glimmer Mist and a puffy paint border was added as a final touch.
And my second canvas ....
This is a photo of my son proudly showing his soccer "trophy"
 The photo was edited first black & white
 and after that I "splashed" colour only on the photo he`s
holding of his soccer team.
{IDT 0013} Brackets on Oval
{IDS 0013} Embellishments 4 (6 on board)
{IDW 0017} Congratulations (4 on board)
{IDW 0004} Soccer with Ball

{Game On} Collection
{Ladies & Gents} Collection
{Park Drive} Collection
{Bubbly Background} Unmounted Rubber Stamps
{Diamonds Tag} Unmounted Rubber Stamps

Other Products I used:
{Firefly} 2.5"x3" Clear Acrylic Stamp

Here are a few close-ups for you...
I added slightly Glimmer Glam on the ball 
and added puffy paint.
The "Soccer" word was separated from the ball and the "curve".
And the ball itself was separated from the "curve".

I hope you enjoyed my post today!

Ning.Site you`ll be STRUCK BY all the inspiration! :-)

Mixing Old & New Collections {Glitz Design}

Hello Everyone!
Today I`m sharing with you two layouts
where I mixed Old & New Glitz Design collections.

My first layout is a happy, fun layout where I scrapped photos of
my kids. I matched here different collections and I love
the fact that they work altogether so well!
{Color Me Happy} Paper Collection
{Uncharted Waters} Paper Collection
{Yours Truly} Paper Collection
{Hello Friend} Glitzers
{Yours Truly} Peek-A-Boos
{Love you Madly} Peek-A-Boos
{Uncharted Waters} Whatnots
{Love you Madly} Whatnots
{Yours Truly} Whatnots
{French Kiss} Whatnots
{Hello Friend} Layered Stickers
{Yours Truly} Layered Stickers
{Cashmere Dame} Rubber Stamps
{Love you Madly} Giant Roller Doodle Chevron

I used different embellishments to decorate the photo.
The roses were part of the stickers. 
"Hello Handsome" and "Hello beautiful" words were stamped.
I stamped the chevron pattern on a separate sheet of paper.
Then I cut it out and used it as embellishment.

My second layout is not my usual color combination but I love the
"Stripe" pattern paper from "Uncharted Waters" collection 
and I decided to use it as a base for my layout.
{Uncharted Waters} Paper Collection
{Hello Friend} Paper Collection
{Yours Truly} Paper Collection
{Color Me Happy} Paper Collection
{Hello Friend} Rubber Stamps
{Yours Truly} Paper Collection
{Cashmere Dame} Title Stickers
{Hello Friend} Layered Stickers
{Beautiful Dreamer} Glitzers
{Uncharted Waters} Peek-A-Boos
{Color Me Happy} Giant Rhinestones

The butterflies were stamped and cut out.
The "awesome" word was cut from one of the stickers.
The phrase "You can never have too much happy" is part of 
the "Chalkboard" pattern paper (Color Me Happy) collection. 
It was cut out carefully and then separated in parts so I can decorate 
part of the hand-stitched circle.
I also fussy cut flourishes from the pattern paper.
Other Products I used:
{658948} Sizzix Thinlits Die - Frame, Fancy Rectangle

Thank you so much for visiting me today!
Have a Glitzy Day!
