Christmas cards with Makin's Clay

Hello my dear friends! Today I am going to share a couple of Christmas  cards I made with  embellishments from Makin's Clay.
This is a first card and as you can see this sweet big Angel on the card is made with Makin's Clay White clay in a mold and them covered with clear glitter.
You can make a lot of casting in molds with Makin's air day clay and to use on your Christmas cards and other projects.

The second card is in the very similar colors, but here I made a few Makin's Clay embellishments using Makin's Clay Christmas Nature push molds and Red Makin's Clay.
 All clay pieces were covered with glaze for the shine effect and I added some black acrylic paint over the poinsettia flowers centre.

Shrink plastic flowers box tutorial with Art Anthology

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Welcome to my first Art Anthology post for December.
After making some Mixed Media projects I decided to make something totally different and this time it's an altered small gift box and shrink plastic stamped flowers that were made to embellish this box. Both box  and glower bouquet were painted with gorgeous Art Anthology paints and it's another way to use those paints that I want  to share.
Step by step tutorial:
1. Stamp all flowers from In my Garden Unity  stamp set with black permanent ink as shown on white shrink plastic.

2.Color all stamped images with Art Anthology dimensional paints and don't try to color inside the lines as we are going to cut the images.

3. Hand cut the images and shrink them with your heat gun. That's how small they look after shrinking and the colors are very intense.

4. Paint the small Kraft box with Art Anthology  light green paint and let it dry.

5. Use Art Anthology stencil with Dazzling dimensional clear paint over the green box cover and let it dry.

This is how it looks after the second paint layer.

6. Arrange the shrinked images as you wish over the box and glue them to the cover.

This is how your lovely box looks from the side/top with all flowers on it.

To my cool friend card

Hello my dear crafty friend and welcome to my  inspirational post made for both Tando  and Susan K Weckesser.
This is Tando recipe week and we were asked to use one stencil, 2 stamps and 3 snowflakes.
And it was a time to make some winter cards too. So here is the card I made for both companies.
So I used Sunburst stencil with Susan's Clearsnap ColorBox Mini Pop ink in Ice color for the background.
Then I used Susan's two stamps from Snow Way stamp set co- branded Unity set for the main Snowman image and the sentiment using here other color of ink- Sky.
Three chipboard Tando mini snowflakes were covered with a thick layer of Ice ink and as they are bare chipboards the color is pretty dark after all. I covered the ink with clear embossing powder  for some glossy effect.
The snowman image was stamped twice, hand cut and made into 3d figurine.

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my Two Paper Divas new post.

The sentiment was stamped with permanent ink over the card front.

The second card is for Graduation and I used this YOU DID IT set for the sentiment and DV dies for the whole card combo.

Holiday project with Art Anthology

Hello my dear crafty friends! Irit is here again and this is my small altered Christmas project for your inspiration. I altered the non branded wooden boot in non- traditional Christmas colors using all possible Art Anthology paints , stencils and sprays.
 This is an easy to do project and if you don't find the similar wooden shape you can easily hand cut one from chipboard as the web is full of such templates.

 The full step by step tutorial can be found on Snapguide site HERE:
Check out How to Alter Wooden Christmas Boot by Art Anthology on Snapguide.

 I really hope that you liked my step by step tutorial and will try some non- traditional Christmas colors on your own projects. As you all know we have all possible paints, sprays and stencils in Art Anthology shop and you just need to pick your favorites! See you soon again!

 And some close-m ups for your inspiration: 

Masculine layout tutorial with Papericious

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here with my November tutorial made for Papericious friends and this time I made a layout tuorial for masculine layout.
Making maskuline projects are usually harder than feminine ones.
Even with a gorgeous paper collection you still are out of usual embellishments and you need to think a bit out of the box.
So let me show you how to make this lovely layout with two 6*4'' photos and with a bit of chipboard add- ons only.
I am totally sorry for the bad lighting during the tutorial steps, but that's it. I can't change it after the page is done. The final photos that were maid another day are  much better.

Step by step tutorial:

1.Arrange two cardstock from  The Gentleman collection as shown. Distress the edges with sand paper and ink them with black ink. Glue one cardstock over another as shown.

2. Make cardstock matting for both photos and ink the matting's edges.
Adhere the photos over the matting with 3d foam glue for the dimension.

3. Cu a few cardstock strips and arrange them over the first two cardstocks using 3d foam glue.

4.Use diamonds stencil and texture paste and add the paste over the stencil around the page edges. Let it dry!

5. Glue the photos and outline the diamonds shapes with black pen. It sure takes some time, but we need to add some shades to this page.

6. Paint the diamond chipboard with black paint and add around the page as shown.

7. Cut the clock. Best Dad ever tag and Best Dad circle from the patterned cardstock and glue them over the page.

And this is a final page with more chipboards added around making some eye moving to the elements and a kind of journalling too.
This is my oldest son and his first born son. He sure is the best Dad ever (when he is home as he is an Army colonel)

And as the The Gentlemen collection was already on my desk I added a lovely masculine card  to this post.
