Grungy Stuff and Christmas !? by Ellie Knol

Image
Ellie here today..  this is a style I don't do often. The star and the circle gave me an idea: creating a christmas card with non-christmas stamps. The background was created with a roll-off of a brayer with Fresco Finish paints and infusions while gelliprinting. It took me quite some time to figure out the composition and also the placement of the colored stamped images.  In the end it took six stamp sets to finish the collage of stamped images.  I especially like the look of the faux-tissue tape, and the blue of the background peeping through. .  Have a good day!  Rubber Dance Stamps: The Rubber Dance Webshop Grungy Stuff Mixed Media Marks Mixed Media Marks #2 Pick A Number Retro Beach Happy Place

The Gift of Christmas by Samantha Read

Image
Hello, Samantha here and I'd like to share a quick and easy Christmas card, perfect for batch making if you have lots to do. I wanted to do a tutorial but I was enjoying it so much I forgot to take step by step photos so I hope my writing explains for you. My card base is 5 inches square so I mat and layered to make the card more substantial to halp make the gorgeous pink colour pop. I made the top layer using a stencil and distress inks and I stamped the cute Christmas tree from the Textured Christmas Trees stamps set on white card. I added some coordinating coloured splats, pink, turquoise and yellow always work so well together. I coloured the Christmas tree using watercolour paints. To finish I added some pink, sparkly sequins, a sentiment from Watercolour Xmas stamp set, finally using the edge of an old credit card I grounded the tree with lines of paint. Here are the stamp sets I used, just click on them to go Rubber Dance shopping, and there's lots more inspiration on Fa

PAIR OF ATC "POLICE"

  Hi everyone!! Josi Tomàs greets you and stopped by to show you this beautiful ATC pair that I made. Does it also happen to you that you really want to create something but don't have time? Well, this inspiration that I show you today is really simple and if you try to do it yourself, you will realize than you need very little time...      To make the background I used papers that I had saved from a day that I worked with my Gelly Plate.   Then I did a bit of embossing with translucent and shiny powders and stamped with black ink that stamp that I like so much that it imitates a Police concert ticket The final decoration was made with one of the Doodle Flowers painted with watercolor and a piece of the same stamps stamped on tissue paper. Easy right? Well, now it's your turn. I challenge you to do your version and show us your inspiration.   Happy Friday!!! ........ *Stamps that have inspired me for this project... # Mixed Media Marks # Doodle Flowers

Gift Pouches by Angie Coomber

 Hello arty friends, Angie here! I'm always trying to think of alternative ways of wrapping present and trying to avoid materials that can't be recycled, so this time I have been making small gift pouches using book pages, but you could use other papers from your stash. There are a lot of tutorials on the Internet for folding little pouches, and whilst I'm not going into a detailed description here I hope the photos give you an idea of what to do, it really is very simple. I've used double sided scrapbook paper so you can see which way I'm folding, and washi tape so you can see where to glue, but I used double sided tape on the actual pouches. I hope I'm making sense!  After making my book page pouches I used the doilie stamps to emboss white and metallic on black paper,  then stamped in shades of blue/turquoise on white paper.  I cut out the Doilies then arranged them on the pouches. I tried to arrange some of the so that the Doilies would line up on the closed
