*Fishy* Penholder ► Majo

Good Morning, folks!

Majo here today to show you a little tutorial for a penholder. I make them a lot since I always love to have a little present at hand when needed. I fill it with treats, tea bags, herbs pouches or anything you can think off.

This is how I made it:

I cut a piece of watercolor paper the size that would fit the pen holder on all 4 sides, added water diluted distress ink and stamped my images.

I took off some of the ink with some bleach and colored the fishes with Ko-I-Noor Pencils

I colored the edges of the pen holder with acrylic paint.

I cut the panel apart and added some accents with a Viva Paper Pen.

I adhered the panels to the sides and distressed the edges a bit. The upper inside was covered with strips of Washi Tape.

Here you can see all sides of the pen holder ...

Magic Fish Card

Hi Everyone,

Cornelia here today. I love interactive card and especially those magic cards, where the color all of a sudden appears.

So here you see the card with the slider in and below its out.

My Stamp supplies:
 Such a hilarious set, isn't it?

And that's how I made this card:

I stamped the fish

I colored it with Inktense

Stamped the fish again onto a clear acrylic sheet

Took blue card stick and cut it to size

Glued the colored and clear fish in, so they perfectly overlap

Made the slider and added stops to the blue card base, so you don't pull it out accidentally and then glued it all together.
I also added some green paper to the end of the slider, decorated it and decorated my blue frame. It's better to do this beforehand, because if you don't use heat resistant acrylic it can warp...

And now the color magically appears if you pull the slider.

See! You can make this in any size, that 's why I didn't bother with my measurements.

Don't forget our challenge is still going for a few more days, until the end of the month. Play along, if you find time!
It runs all month long over in the Facebook Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge and its  those three colors you see below or anything goes with Rubber Dance stamps.

Happy Rubber Dancing!

Graphic wall hanging with video tutorial by Melina

It´s Melina here today sharing a slightly less colourful make than I
usually do ;) I was of course planning a really colourful make,
but I liked the way the leaves looked in black and white and decided to go with that.

I used the new Things with Wings stamp set, and recorded my 
process making this wall hanging.

You´ll find the video here. Hope you´ll enjoy this easy
home decor idea!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Art journal page tutorial with Think again stamp by Saadia Nawaz

Hi everyone,
Saadia here with a quick and easy art journal page. I hope you like it and give it a try.

Lets start our journal page:

I took a 5.5 x8. 5 inches watercolor paper and sprayed Dylusions ink sprays on it. I wanted a very bright and happy page and so I chose Dylusions sprays.
Next I did a bit of stenciling with different stencils. I used acrylic paints for stenciling.
I also did a bit of background stamping with Archival inks.

After that I stamped stars from Grungy stuff stamp set onto a paper and fussy cut them.

Glued the stars and my sentiment from Think again stamp set, onto my journal page.

Finally added few paint splatters and doodling.
That's all for now.

Thank you for your precious time.

A reminder that we have a challenge that goes all month on our face book page which you can find Here

It is always ANYTHING GOES/ or a colour combo if you wish

Take care and stay blessed.

Saadia Nawaz.

I grabbed the brand new stamp sets Grungy Butterflies and Small Grungy Butterflies and created my journal spread with them. For the sentiments I used the new Mix a Sentiment stamp.
