Vintage Tag

Inspired by the May challenge by Tim Holtz, I decided to create another tag using one of my favorite images from the "Da  VINCI" Rubber Dance Stamps instead of a picture ....

Have a wonderful Sunday ♥

Just a tag ......

I started out quite confident with my tag, then I realized I had chosen the wrong colors for the stenciling, way too dark. All I could come up with was to cover the whole "mess" with word dies and a little sentiment stamp :) 

Next time I will listen closer to Marjie :)

Ir(resist)ible technique

Good Morning, my friends!
 I want to show you how to create a little box with an older technique called “Resist with napkin varnish”. 

I started with cutting my template, it’s a Sizzix Die *Box & Card* and stamped the two beautiful flowers from the Da Vinci Set. Make sure you use permanent ink, as this is going to get wet!

I colored the images with Koh-I-Noor pencils Mondulez and some water. Then I carefully applied the napkin varnish and tried not to get too much outside the image, since this area will not take any color after the application.

I applied different colors of Distress Ink and spritzed & flicked with water. After distressing the edges I assembled my box and tied a little tag around, the word “SEEDS” is computer generated.

 I just love how vibrant the colors of the flowers stand out!

Ready for summer and some new flowers?

You can find the flower images right here at the Rubber Dance Stamps shop!

Today I choose to be happy ....

It's been quite a battle lately, but I will not let the situation put me down (too often).

Today I played with my Rubber Dance Stamps and found one that at least cheered up hubby when he saw my creation.

... and the other sides ....

Yes, I think I will make this a happy day, no matter what :)

Some fun tag for May!

I love burlap and use it a lot on my projects, so it was handy to use it on the May 2015 tag, the wonderful monthly tutorial from Tim Holtz.

Have a good start into the weekend!

Herzlichen Dank!

I used Rubber Dance Stamps *Retro Beach Photo* on my card and I needed a German sentiment (Stamp from Stampin' UP) for a friend :)

The background is embossed with a cracked folder, the little sea horse is a Sizzix die, which I colored with distress ink and added Distress crackle paint!

1-2-3 Get Scrappy

Melina at 1-2-3 Get Scrappy has provided a beautiful board for us to work with and I have used the diagonal row for my layout. 

It`s not one with a lot of fun and laughter, but sometimes life gets in the way and one has to deal with facts .......

Sketch #123 at LCOM

Welcome to sketch #113 at LCOM!

I created a card for my MIL using the fabulous heart stamp from Dina Wakley as well as the sentiment from the set. 

I cut the heart border with a Stampin' Up border punch and added some lace for the special occasion. 

To give the background some texture I  used the circles from the Rubber Dance Stamps set "Round in circles".

Have fun using the awesome sketch, there is a prize to win for you :)

The "Stitch and Frame", the "Round in circles" and the play cards from the "ATC Backgrounds 2".

The sentiment is from the beautiful set "Something wonderful"!
