You color my word card

 Fancy heat embossed card made with one of my favorite techniques of making rainbow of three colors only.
The background stamp and embossing powders are from WOW! Embossing Powders and the sentiment stamp is from VLVS. I used permanent markers in red, blue and yellow and all other colors are just " done" by mixing those three primary colors. The circles are the negatives from die cuts and I made the whole " home nade" stencil to make the pattern with one cardstock sheet and a few cuts made one ofter another.
I enter this to a couple of web challenges- so far I have time for this , but not for a long time since I got some very happy news about 3 more crafty adventures that I can't  yet share.
Simon Says- Anything goes
 Addicted to stamps- make your  mark (use markers)

Embossing- for AAA Cards

Inkspirational- Geometric (circles)

Casology- distress (as I understand it, so the colors are totally distressed and mixed )

Lucky Makin's Clay necklace

 Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit us here again with my Makin's Clay Lucky necklace.
I think that anyone needs a bit of luck. And games, any kind of them, are the most common way to get some luck together with a lot of fun. So I made a fancy 3 colors only necklace with Makin's Clay using all possible techniques.
Supply list:


Other products:
Stamps- Rubber Dance 
Glaze- DecoArts
Acrylic paint- DecoArts
Jewelry parts and beads- craft shop

Let me show you all of them techniques  used today:
1. Use Ultimate  Clay Extruder with large square disk #28 (you can't  see the disk on this photos, sorry about it) with white and black Makin's Clay to make this " so called" chess game  board.
I used a piece of thin red clay that was rolled to #6 setting on  Makin’s Professional® Ultimate Clay Machine® and dry to make the base for all those extruded squares.

2.Make a free hand  game cube from black clay and making the dots with Makin’s Clay® Professional Clay Tools®  top as shown.

3.Stamp with black permanent ink over wet clay rolled with Makin's Clay roller.I used Rubber Dance stamp to make this playing card Queen image.

4. Stamp with bare stamp  into the wet white clay. I used Rubber Dance stamps again and in my final project the Bingo card was not used after all. But I did used the domino piece as you can see. All piece were hand cut with a cutter from Makin’s Clay® Professional Clay Tools® set. 

5. Use  Makin's Clay small cutters of playing cards signs  from Mini Geo  cutters set to make the small pieces for the necklace. I didn't find the diamond shape(mess is my second name) in my cutters box, so I made it totally free  hand.

7. Make a mold  using a real chess game piece and cast  the chess game piece with black clay.

8.Cover all dry pieces with  glaze. The Domino piece dots were painted with black acrylic paint.
The cube dots were all painted with white acrylic inside the dots.

 And this is my finished pieces added to a fancy multi strings necklace.
 I added the word Lucky over the chess board with stickers and then covered the stickers with glaze again.
So are you Lucky? I hope you are and if not- make this necklace for some extra luck!

Beyond imagination with Rubber Dance

 Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my small altered project made for Rubber Dance and Tando Creative.
This is a kind of " use your leftovers project". The pieces that I added to make this " castle"  are the insides of Tando arches and mini book and I actually added 5 of them one over another to make the shape.
Each piece was covered with one single Tando stencil on the top: this fancy Moroccan roof is a small stencilled piece made with DecoArts texture paste and then heat embossed with gold powder.
Each piece was stamped with Rubber Dance background stamp-Flourishes- using clear embossing ink and the same gold embossing powder. Then  each one of 5 pieces was painted with DecoArts paint and as the stamped images act as resist we still can see the gorgeous embossed background.
I stamped the sentiment with Rubber Dance stamp from ATC Backgrounds 2 (I didn't stamp the name of the author  that is on this stamp, but saying only). Again this was stamped with the same gold heat embossing and painted with the very same dark blue paint.
As my finishing touches I added this clock on the top and two real vintage gold buttons.
You can now imagine that this is your home. Or that you live like 500 years ago in this castle. Just IMAGINE!

ETI Blog hop

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to our ETI BLOG HOP!
Today the whole line of fantastic designers  are going to show you all possible projects made with resin arts products.
And please comment in each an every blog as you can win this delicious prize too:
I hope you came from Heather's blog. If not- go to the first stop and begin the hop there!

So here is my project: I made the fancy recycled jewelry/specks organiser using  a few of ETI products.
I didn't make a whole tutorial, but I took some photos for some steps, just yo make it easy to see the process.
So this is a finished project. 

Now lets see how it was done. First I painted this pretty old and already used Canvas Corps wooden tray with white paint using Earth Safe finishes Chalk It Up Whipped Cream paint. When it was dry I rolled the candle (the color is just what I had , you can use any color of candle as nobody is going to see it later).

Now I painted the " candled" tray with ESF Chalk It Up Rock Candy paint and then distressed it with sand paper. (This step is not shown here, but on the finished project only)

To make the sides pretty I used ESF Texture paste with Tim Holtz stencil and made it over all 4 sides. You need to do 2 sides and then to let them dry and to make two more sides if you don't want to mess the process.

Now it was a time for my ETI play.I didn't take any photos as those steps are easy and each and every of my previous tutorials made for ETI has the very same steps.
So first I casted Plaid molds with Easy Cast resin (mixing  for 2 minutes and then for one more minute in a new glass). I made 4 pieces to use inside my tray with this resin mix and some brown glitter. One single " clear" piece was made with  just a bit of light blue glitter. After almost 24 hours my pieces were hard and ready to use.
First I made a few die cuts using gold cardstock and MFT 4 small doilies dies. The die cuts were arranged inside the box . I added my 4 resin glitters pieces over the die cuts.
Now I mixed about 4 Oz of Easy Cast resin and just added it over the box spots. Some small beads were added randomly for the interest. I also glued the sequin ribbon over the tray with the very same ETI Easy Cast resin leftovers from the big glass. 24 hours later my fancy wooden tray was ready to use.

Here you can see the resin pieces and clear resin over those pieces.

And this is another look on my finished project.

And now to your next stop on the hop:

Celebrate and make a wish card: Oriental style

Hello  my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here again with my new Oriental style card and this time it's a Birthday card full of bright colors and gold using Die Versions Oriental dies collection.
I used light blue card as my base and added a real Japanese paper over it. As this paper has gold  I decided to stay with gold and made the die cut of Whispers - Ginger Jar  die in gold. I kept the negative and used it under the die cut over the card.
The vase was layered over double sided glue sheet and covered with perfect blue glitter.
I added a few  pieces of gold washi tapes and some SRM stickers as stitches and sentiments.  The paper has a bit of red over it. So I added a couple of red rhinestones  and red stitches to make this the complimentary color for my card.

So with just one die  this card is a shiny and full of color and just perfect for both genders.

Love forever Mixed Media card

Still doing things " just because". Just because I  have time; just because I have the right products; just because I have mojo...
This one is a Mixed Media card made for ALTENEW February challenge.
 I made the background panel with a lot of Altenew stamps and then heat embossed the whole piece with clear powder to get this " glass" look. The chipboard window was also heat embossed with white powder and then misted with Tattered Angels golden mist.
The outer flowers from Altenew set are hand cut and the LOVE FOREVER sentiment is from Sizzix.
So this goes for Altenew challenge inspiration

Touch of Magic

 It seams that I still have " me time" and " me time" means making things just for myself. Like for some web challenges. Like to play with products I forgot about as I had to work with " my" companies.
 So this art piece is a bit about forgotten things and a bit about " let play from the heart".
 This is an small, card  size art board I made for a couple of web challenges.
The only new thing here is the stencil I just got and this delight is from Rebecca Baer. You will see much more of them from April, but for now it's just a sample.
I used  very old stamps from the time I was a Guest designer for a few months on 100 Proof Press company. The mists are from Lindy Stamp Gang February challenge colors and lucky me just had 3 of them at hand ( Used Luscious lime mist,Hottie Patottie hot pink, and Delphinium Turquoise). Also used DecoArt Decoupage medium to glue the stamped over tissue images and their Texture paste. Some glitters were the only other medium used.
And the letters are from AC and Michaels.

And those are the challenges that I enter this pieces:

Sending sunshine with Two Paper Divas

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my last February post made for Two Paper Divas.
This was my first ever try to use solid and outline stamps all together. The Two Paper Divas  Sunshine and Smiles new set was just perfect for this try.
I used dye inks and decided not to make it too perfect (kind of watercolor thing and not the perfect one on one stamping). I love the result, but sure need more learning curve.
I stamped the sentiment vertically on the side and added some SMR border and stitches stickers over the card to connect all parts of it. The golden splashes were made with Tattered Angels mist.

Entered to a few challenges:
