Halloween tag with Canvas Corps

This is an easy to make Halloween tag that was made with a few products from Halloween pad. I used cardstock, burlap, cloth pins and added a tag from another collection that was misted into orange to fit the colors of the tag. I also made my own thin canvas ribbon, used a few of burlap threads as another tied bow on the top and altered the 3d sticker with orange glitter.This is a totally " no tools" project and can be done with just a trimmer and glue.

In LOVE with you- and this is my love for the world!

Just a simple - not so- card made with a background heat embossed stamp, painted with 3 inks to get the rainbow colors and heat embossed chipboard as the sentiment.
This is a tribute to the world: I am in love with my life and with anyone in it.

Gold is a new black: cast you golden jewelry

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my October project made for ETI blog.
This time I really messed at first, but then those lemons gave me a great lemonade.
So here is a story about the mess .
I wanted to make some amber color resin trinkets and beads and I was thinking about the amber part that I already casted in the past.
1.So I mixed a pretty large portion of Easy Cast Resin , like maybe total of 6 oz (3+3 of each part) and then in a second of  bad lighting I added Transparent Red dye into the whole mixture. 

2.So now it was a kind of red and  you don't have much to do, but to put it into your molds and to think it over when it's dry.And you don't have a lot of time to pick your molds or to use your Mold release. You need to move and move fast. So I picked two molds that don't need  any release medium and just filled them with the  this red transparent resin.

3. After like 24 hours those pieces were out and in a great , still red shape.

4. But as this red was dull and not interesting I decided to try gold paint that I had in my stash.
A few were light and non seen. Few were too thick and not nice looking over the resin. And that it was like " BINGO": very old, maybe 8 years old Spanish  liquid gold paint and it was a HIT!
2 seconds to dry over resin pieces and look how gorgeous this golden coverage looks!
And just to add: I don't get any free products from this paint company. I didn't even know they are from Spain; I just Googled them. But after 3-4 tries with well known USA companies  this Spanish gold is  GOLD!

5. As a next step I just arranged my  red- gold beauties into some wearable/useful trinkets.
Some were made as pendants. Some were made into magnets. One was done into a staple book mark.
I also painted all metal parts I used with the very same  liquid gold and as you see it looks like a real thing.
Each piece here was glued with a small mix of the very same ETI Easy Cast Resin and I added the same clear resin into this trinket with white pearls on the bottom.

Let me show you a few of them :

 And some more:

And a few more:

Now that I know how to make this golden glaze over resin pieces, I am sure I will use all other pigments colors and will have a nice trinket collection to use with my future projects.

Make today the best ever- PHP and PagMaps

Making multi photo layouts can be a bit hard. You need good photos of the same event or at least a sample of good photos from the similar events. The only event that I could scrap with PageMaps sketch that was sent to me were my daughter's wedding photos. So I made this fancy black and white with gold wedding page in this very classic and very elegant style.
I am not going to make the full step by step tutorial for this page as it's so self expressive and so easy to follow just by looking on my page sample.
I used two basic cardstocks; the dotted one was cut into the half and punched on its side. The cardstocks were inked around or heat embossed with gold powder.
I used a couple of PHP die cut frames over the trimmed photos and a lot of gold rub- ons , making one as my title between  photos.  The embellishments were puffy gold stickers, some 3d stickers, some die cuts and one died cut from the same paper doily. The only non PHP embellishments here are some blings and one 
hand casted flower made with Makin's Clay and glitter over it.

1. Paint a piece of 4*4'' cardstock with Cherry Jubilee Chalk it Up paint and let it dry.
Paint 5 small chipboard ornaments with the same paint.

2.Glue the red piece over black magnetic sheet. Cover the red paint with a thick layer of ESF Crackle medium. Add small beads over the painted ornaments and snowmen and then cover them with  ESF Gel Glaze and let it dry.

3. Paint over the dry crackle with one layer only of English Tea Cake paint and see the crackles! Not add a piece of magnet on the back of each one of 10 painted shapes and arrange them over the game deck. Add strips of red rhinestones to divide the game into 9 squares.

Makin's clay Fall central piece

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my Fall inspired Makin's Clay post.
When I think Fall- I think fall leaves. Nothing more as here in Israel  we don't celebrate any other Fall holidays. We don't even have a lot of rain. So falling leaves is my fall and this table central piece was made with tons of those leaves made from Makin's Clay with a lot of techniques too.
So here we go!
Step by step  instructions:
1. Use your Makin’s Professional® Ultimate Clay Extruder® with disk #5 and your Makin’s Clay® in Peach and Meriot colors and make 2 similar round extruded pieces as shown,

2. Roll your extruded pieces as shown. Then  fold them into half and roll again.(not shown)

3. Mix Olive Makin’s Clay®  with white clay to get this  light olive color you see  on the left big piece.
Mix Green and Straw colors (in the step 1-2 way) to get the marbled look of the lower piece.
Mix Meriot and olive green to get the piece in the middle and so on.
Use your  Makin’s Professional® Ultimate Clay Machine® on setting #3 to get those piece of clay ready to be die cut.

4. Die cut all pieces of rolled clay with  your leaves' dies. I used two companies for this piece: the big leaves are cut with Sizzix and the smaller with Cherry Lynn Designs.
Let all your  die cuts to dry.

5. Arrange the dry leaves into a circular arrangement using a piece of white clay on the bottom.Use good clear glue to adhere the leaves over the bottom piece and one over another.
Paint them over with shiny paints (I used whatever I had, no special brand).
Try to arrange the large leaves on the bottom and then to move to middle and small sizes on the top.

6. I used the old , used red candle to be my stand.

7. You can also arrange the candle with your leaves into another bowl.

Celebrate today card with DV

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second October post  in Die- Versions blog. 
It is a general Celebration card made in greens and blacks  with a touch of silver colors with this fantastic O'Christmas Tree(s)  from August  Die- Versions release.
 I used PHP Colorways papers and stickers and added this die cut tree on the corner and it was just a PERFECT fit to this card.

 I added some glaze over the tree and some clear glitter and it was the only glue I used to arrange this die cut over my card.

I hope I have inspired you to create something fun today!  Please be sure to check back to the DV Blog often for more great ideas on how to use your dies!  And please share with us what you make on the DV Facebook Page.

VLVS tutorial: You color my world

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my September tutorial made for VLVS blog.
This time I decided to be totally colorful and to use a lot of alcohol inks over my piece as they look gorgeous over acrylic pieces and this altered deco is all acrylic fragments one.
 But first lets see the stamping part of it.
So here we go!   
Step by step directions:
1. Take your Whimsical Jester stamp and stamp over the large (4*4'' ) acrylic fragment with black StazOn ink. Also this ink should be permanent over acrylic it takes some time  to dry, so I added a few blows of my heat gun.

2.Now add some butterflies using Butterfly Specimens stamp in the very same way. As you can see we have a perfect space for this butterflies strip.

3. Now for the fun part: add a mix of your favorite alcohol inks on the BACK of your stamped piece. 

4. Grab some smaller acrylic fragment and arrange them over the stamped piece using a few drops of Glossy Accents. You glue over the stamped surface and not over the colored one.Let the glaze dry for a few minutes.

5. Pick another acrylic piece and stamp this gorgeous " YOU COLOR MY WORLD" VLVS sentiment over it with white pigmented ink and white powder heat embossing.
Glue the sentiment as shown over the main piece. Add a few pearls over the piece. You stamped art deco is done! Enjoy!

And this is how it looks  on a stand!
