Fancy Key stand

 This project was published in Ready Set Create April 2012 issue
This project was spotlighed nin Prima blog as one of January PPP winners
This project made Top 3 on Lessology challenge
This wood piece is in my room for maybe 6 years. I bought it in Istanbul, Turkey for pennies and just use it a bit as is and them changed for another key holder. But then, this Prima color January challenge was just perfect  for the shape and this altered project was finally made. All papers, chipboards, flowers, blings,leaves, lace are Prima. I used my MS border punch for the paper lace, CLD dies for butterflies and Epiphany Crafts Round Tool , bubble and charm for the  vintage clock on the edge. Am I going to hang our keys on this stand? Not sure  taht it can be really used, too delicate, but lovely.

I enter this to  Scrap it Girl  CHA challenge: clock,hooks, altered project
To Lessology- floral delight- the wood piece is used and upcycled

Sleeping Beauty

Sometimes the old journaling you made is so much loved that you use it again on another page. This happened with this page's journaling when I've seen this Sleeping Beauty title from A2Z Scraplets.
So I made this page about my girls still living in a fairy tale world and feeling my a Sleeping Beauty and please read it to understand the mood of this page.
The whole page is Prima based, but the A2Z chipboard corner and some J. Bowlin script paper, wood clock and plastic buttons.
The green frog is a part of journaling.
The title was inked a bit with brown ink, heat embossed with brown embossing powder and covered with Ranger's 3d glaze. The pink branch is a pure recycling, got it on some wedding table with some candies.

I enter this to Scrap the girls monochromatic challenge- also I have this green frog, but it's all about it in journaling.
Also entered to Catered crop book print challenge

Happy Day card

Sometimes, not so often, I make clean and simple crafts and this is one of those times. This simple card was made for Moxie Fab " Use something from the house" challenge and I used the tooth picks. I actually made pencils from them and  it was a great add of color too as this card is a bit too Kraft.
I used Core'dintaions embossed cardstock, Spellbinders set, a chipboard and stamped sentiment and the book paper and a colored strip was Glitz.

I also made it  for Clearsnap inspiration challenge- mostly the mood and colors.

Life is a game, play it fair

Mt new clean and simple style cards and I love it! I think I need a rest of those messy and shabby projects, so I made this one as a most possible CAS card. This Epiphany Crafts Square Shape punch with bubbles was just perfect and I made this check board and then  the stickers - LB- title and added Eyelet outlet brads and a real playing card.

My Robin's nest glitter garden

Hello, my dear Robin's Nest friends ! Irit is here again with my first post during my second term on this fantastic team.

This time I decided to show you how you can make your own glitter garden, using Robin's Nest most gorgeous glitter cardstocks and glitter chipboards.
The base of this project is this cheap acrylic frame and I actually covered it with home die cut flowers and leaves.
Products used here:
Acrylic frame
Robin's Nest products:
Glitter Chipboards:red, lime green pink, yellow
Glitter cardstock:  Glitter White on white swirls,  Glitter Pink on Pink swirls,Classic Roses, Cindy Loe Stripe
Dew drops:Sun Shower, B/W with Silver 
Other products: Sizzix flower and leaves dies, EK Success flower and leaves punches
Chipboard butterfly (A2Z Scraplets)
Creative Inspiration Paints: Mellow Yellow, Sunshine, Rustic Red, Evergreen, Citrus
Fancy Pants swirl and flowers stamps
Staz-on white ink
How I did it:
1. Stamp some flowers and swirls with Staz- On over acrylic frame top. As you can see only the small portions of it are seen after I covered it with all flowers and leaves.
2. Die cut and punch lots and lot of flowers, leaves and swirls from all papers and glitter chipboards. Use dies to cut your glitter chipboards and punches for cardstock and paper, as chipboards are too thick for punches. Assemble your flowers and begin to glue them over the frame. Fist glue the swirls, then some big flowers, then add leaves and small flowers and try to make it to look as a random collection.

3. Glue dew drops as your flower centers: make a small center flowers over the big flowers and add just one drop over the small ones. Add Tear drops as your leaves over the small leave branches.
4. Now for the painting. As the glitter was too bright, I decided to soften it with a bit of water colors, so I added some light paint layer over the chipboard flowers. The white glitter cardstock was just perfect for resist painting, so I painted over the white flowers and then cleaned the paint from the glitter parts using a baby wipes.
Finally I added this chipboard huge butterfly, painted and glitter covered and my shiny garden was done.

And for the final project

I also enter this to Lessology Floral project- the frame is totally recycled one.

Making wall art or just walls

Hello , My dear creative friends! Irit is here and this time we are going to make some Wall art, or actually just some wall patterns, using those simple and cheap office stickers together with our gorgeous Creative Inspirations Paints.
I made a few different samples of possible walls- all ATC size and one finished ATC just show your how you can use your walls after they are done.
Product list:
Creative Inspirations paints: Chocolate, Beige, Garnet, Sunshine
Office stickers: permanent and non permanent  ones
And now to work:
1. Painted permanent stickers wall
Add some small permanent stickers over your cardstock building a wall pattern.

Cover the whole pattern with a lot of paint. As our stickers are the regular paper, they catch the paint faster and better (the ATC is part glossy), but still all the cardstock is paint covered.

2. Wall made with non permanent  stickers.
I used those big printable stickers, torn and added as a wall pattern. After the whole piece was painted, I just peeled those stickers for this wall look.

3.Misted wall
This time I made a bit of a homemade mist with our sunshine paint and misted the permanent stickers to make my Yellow brick road. The black spots were made with some black ink drops

And my final ATC project- I made the red edges with Garnet paint and stamped with Black ink over the wall

Now go and make your own wall art!

This page was published in SNR April/May 2012 issue
This page was a Favorite on Scrapbookers Anonymous F challenge
A2Z Scraplets January new release is something you need to see !!! The most gorgeous chipboards- all kinds and sizes and this 12*12'' Butterfly frame in in my personal opinion the best of the best.
As the frame is bare brown chipboard, first I covered it all with white gesso, then, after it was dry , I added a fine mix of pastel colors from Creative Inspirations Paints with a sponge.
The next step was to cover the whole frame with Clear Embossing Ink (Watermark) and to heat emboss it with Fine Clear Embossing Powder (Creative Inspirations Paints powders). For the final touch I inked it around with Clearsnap brown ink. 
Click on the close up photo to see this shiny look of the frame.

I used Kaisercrafts papers here and their sketch too- the round one inside the frame, not trimming needed and  I hand cut all those flowers and layered them around.
Journaling tag was stamped  with Inspired by Stamping Butterflies stamp set and all stamped and heat embossed butterflies came from the very same set too.
Some other embellishments used here: Kaisercrafts wood lock, border sticker and small letter stickers, Prima  pearls and AC vinyl alphas for a title.
I hope you like this page and those A2Z Scraplets new releases.

No smile? lo

Small and very simple Pretty Little Studio lo- all embellishments are home made
I made those flags from patterned paper, those rounds with PLS scalloped small tags and Epiphany Crafts Round 25 bubbles- no tool needed for those beauties. The round circle with journaling was made recycling the white plastic left after your Wonder Tape is gone. Keep those plastics- they are  just great for recycling to some embellishments

Paint your shiny garden

Hello, dear artistic friends! Irit is here with my second January tutorial and this time we are going to use some embossing powders over painted chipboards
Here is the product list for this project:
Creative Inspiration Paints: Garnet, Fucsia, Blush, Evergreen, Lime
Flower and leave shaped chipboards (I used Tando Creative ones, but you can die cut yours at home)
White gesso
Clear and yellow embossing powders
Heat gun
And now let's get fun
1. Cover all bare brown shapes with white gesso and let it dry. White shapes doesn't need to be covered with gesso.

2. Paint your leaves with 2-3 shades of greens, add some clear embossing powder over the wet paint

Clear powder covered, not heated yet

3. Heat the powder- you get some bubbles from the heated paint, but I just love the look.

4. Cover the flowers (they are white and don't need any gesso) with red and pink paint

5. Add some yellow embossing powder over the wet paint

6. Heat the colored powder with your heat gun

And now just arrange those painted ad embossed beauties over your project

This is just a portion on my very new LO made for CHA, so I will post the whole one later.
See you next week with my last January tutorial
