Compendium of Curiosities #19 - my ATC

Hi Bloggers, today I went to RDS, Dublin for the Knitting and Stich Show and I bought THE book. Finally I got to this stage to buy it. I couldn't wait till I got home to have a quick look what is the challenge over at Studio L3.
This week we had to open the book on page 61 and use the technique (Extreme masking) on the project.
This is what I came up with:

Frankly, I'm very pleased how it turned out. By the way this is my first ever ATC, but definitely not the last one. It is so much fun to create something quite small.
I'm off to read the whole book, I might be back with something else LOL.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend,
Happy Halloween

Prima - Build a Page October

Hi, being home recovering from pneumonia gives me the opportunity to create :D. So what I did was a layout using the Prima BAP sketch.

I used Prima paper: Youth and Pulse collection and also the flower are from Prima. I used one Prima pebbles, but since I didn't like the text in it I altered and stamped 'me' on to paper and adhered it under the pebble. I like how it turned out. I like the dimension of it.
I draw the background shape with Caran D'ache crayons and spritzed some Glimmer mist to create some splatters.
Recently I watched a lot of Donna Downey videos, you can't tell, hm?? LOL

I am also entering this layout into the competition over at CardznSrapz, where you have to include some paper pleating, distressing and lace into your projects.

On the photo: it's me, with short red hair in Moscow (2005) on the Cosmonauts Alley standing in front the Memorial of ValentinaTereshkova, the first woman in space.

After writting a very scientific and education blog post I'd better go to get a hot cup of tea.
I hope you liked my layout, thanks for watching,

Simon Says Stamp and Show - Anything but card

Hi dear blog readers, I hope you keeping fine and had a lovely weekend. Monday is not my favourite day, but I can admit that I like Tuesdays the least. But let's see what will happen tomorrow. There will be one good point anyways, when I'll give this little halloween treatbox to my friend. She asked me to create something for the grandson, so this is what I came up with.

I used a template from Marion Smith Designs. After receiving the template I edited it in Photoshop so I could print it on an A4 paper. I used on page Tim Holt  Lost and Found collection, it went easily through the printer.
I cut out and assembled the box. I kep it simple: heat embossed some green swirls, place some lace on the bottom part of the box. I also heat embossed the AC letters.

As you can see the letters are not solid green. I overheated the embossing power to get this grungy look. On the top there is a handmade tulle flower which I completed with a prima flower and an owl charm.

I hope you liked it, thanks for visiting and leaving lovely comments.

Wedding card with some metal

Over at Simon Say Stamp and Show the challenge of the week is to use some metal on your creation.
I made a card for my friends' wedding. This is not only a card but their present in the same time. 
I used a lot of different things to make this card. Firts I downloaded some old vintage advertisments about travelling to Ireland and also a pic of a pub ( thanks for those who shared them). I edited these into a 6x6 square and printed them. This is the background of the front of the card.

The front is all about travel and journey, because my wedding gift for the couple is a short visit to Dublin.
I made the flower with the TH die and put some metal pieces in the middle to make it like a compass.
The inside of the card is quite simpe, I just put their name, destination, and time as it was a flight ticket.

I used DP from K&Co and also Making Memories. Distress Inks: Rusted Hinge, Brushed Corduroy, VIntage Photo. Text is written with my calligraphy pen.

I hope you like this idea, thanks for visiting me.

Basic Grey - Sparkles

Over at Basic Grey Challenge the theme is: Sparkle. I made this crad using the Eskimo kisses collection. This is a very simple card, no paper layering, not too many embellies. I saw the ruffled ribbon idea somewhere on the internet and I had to give it a try.
The little letter are cut with a Tim Holtz die and I got them in a die-cut swap. Coloured them with Pine Needles distress ink and covered it with stickles.
By the way this is the next card in my Christmas card collection for this year.
I hope you like it, thanks for visiting me,

Just Magnolia - 2x2

Hi Everyone, I am back with a card that I made during the weekend. As I said I had to hurry up with Christmas cards so I made this with a Christmassy Tilda ( I don't know her name). She is from last year's collection.
I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday, but rotated it. I am entering this card to Just Magnolia 2x2 challenge too.

I used two patterned paper, two little blings in the corners and two tags. The papers are from Magnolia also from last years collection. The ponsettia and the tags are from Coredination white wash papers. Ponsettia was cut with a die and the tags I cut out with scissors. Tilda is coloured with distress inks.

I am also entering this to Magnolia Down Under Challenge where the theme is Tag it!. That's why I put two tags on the card. :-D

I hope you like it, thanks for stopping by,

Scrapzville Swap - September

Over at Scrapzville the theme for the monthly swap was a toilet-roll minialbum with a twist to use fairy on the projects. Since my partner already received it I can show it to you now.
I haven't got anything fairy, so I decided to make the mini-album and then figure out how to incorporate a fairy into it.
This is what I came up with:

I used Prima Youth collection papers, and I thought Urban Fairy would be a good name for the mini. I made a little fairy from shrink plastic. The binding is from and old notebook, just reorganised the wires and it became a perfect binding for this album. I kept the inside plain, cause since it is made from toiletroll there aren't too many space in it. If you want to have a deatiled look go to this picasa webalbum.
This is it for today, I hope you like it, thanks for having a look.

Whiff of Joy - Jane's Sketch

Hi everyone, I hope you all have a great weekend. I started to do my Christmas cards, I have done two already. This one is following Jane's Sketch over at WOJ.

I used the Bo Bunny papers which I got free with a magazine, I had to tone the background paper down with a bit of white acrylic, because it was too bright. I made a big ponsettia with my new dies to decorate the base of the easel card. The WOJ image is coloured with Promarkers

This is my second Christmas card this year and have another good few to do ( about twenty), so better hurry 'cause there's only two month left.

I hope you like this one, thanks for visiting,

Squirell picnic

Hi everyone,
I had a great crafty weekend, I have made so many things which I can not show just now. There is one card I'd like to show anyhow. This is an autumn themed card and I got the idea from the Craft Stamper magazine. I never met Squiggle Stamps before and I fell in love with them.
I have used Basic Grey papers for all the background and the trees.

The girl, the squirrel and the fence are digital images and colourde them with markers. I was free hand drawing the trees myself, I am very happy how it turned out.
I am entering this card into Simon Says Challenge where the theme is for the week is autumn.

I hope you like it, thanks for looking
