This card was made for Challenge blog "Paint your World" as a DT member
The schallenge is to make a "painting" using large stamps.
I do like this card a lot. Stamp is from Hertfelt Creations
a bit of old lace as a whitewater, a star fish from a shrink plastic, a hydrangea flower and a "water" droplet
Tim Holtz sticky tape with words... it's so reminds me of a beautiful place I know and miss dearly: Shelter Cove... Lovely place.... Peaceful and romantic, but very fun during storms too )

For my husband

It is really tough to find a present for my husband either for Bday, or Xmas... well, at least I have made a card for him, which I HOPE he'll like it. Idea isn't mine, I saw this card at my VERY good friend Olga-Liola, and she gave me her permission to do a variation of my own. Thanks Olechka!!!
This is a traditional movie that we watch as a couple at  New Years.

I cut the frame of the window from card stock 5 times, added a piece of shrink plastic as a glass, cut out a piece of black paper and glued a cut out from a magazine as my TV, Christmas lights and Tree is a die cuts, a piece of sheer ribbon is my curtains.
A lovely swirls of snow is a die cut as well.
At the last moment -since I had a "helper" I glued my window a bit crooked, but, oh well.... I am not going to re do it.
Thanks for visiting me!
Leave me a dot, I'll know you have been here)

This card was made for a "secret" person in a "Secret Message" game. Only I know, who will recieve her.
She was printed on acetate, colored with Copic markers and Smooch ink.
Leaves were stamped, cut out and colored with distress ink, and covered in crackle.
Flowers, brads, and half pearls are just the finishing touch it needed.
I hope... I really! hope that person will like her, because I had a hard time parting with her.

Dryads (Δρυάδες, sing.: Δρυάς) are tree nymphs in Greek mythology. In Greek drys signifies 'oak,' from an Indo-European root *derew(o)- 'tree' or 'wood'. Thus Dryads are specifically the nymphs of oak trees,[1] though the term has come to be used for all tree nymphs in general. "Such deities are very much overshadowed by the divine figures defined through poetry and cult," Walter Burkert remarked of Greek nature deities.[2] They were normally considered to be very shy creatures, except around the goddess Artemis, who was known to be a friend to most nymphs.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! Lovely to see you.
And... don't be lazy-tell me what you think ;)

Paint your world

In a new blog  Paint your world where I am currently a member of DT new challenge is to make a portrait using stamps.
Here is my take on this:
Here I die cut corner pieces, stamped girl into the Anna Griffin frame, and embossed that frame with gold.
Die cut felt flowers and glued in some half pearls. Girl was colored with dry chalk and Copic markers.

Stamps: Santa-Crafty Secrets
Background stamp-Tim Holtz
Frame stamp on all 3 cards- Anna Griffin
Stamps Happen, INC

Christmas ornament Tutorial

Holidays are right around corner, aren't they?...
So many things we want to do....
We want to make everyone we love to feel special.
Well, I want to suggest making Christmas ornaments together as a family, or as a personal ond loving gifts to your family members and friends.

I got on e-bay plain circle coasters, they are so cheap! :)
And you'll need some doilies, pretty picture like the one I have used from Crafty Secrets,
 pieces of ribbons,
flowers, buttons, feathers-whatever you have around the house:)

You'll also need some glue,
double sided sticky tape
and if you really want to be fancy, or you are a scrapper like me-UTE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel)
Heat gun
Eyelet and eyelet stetting tool
circle puncher might be of a use ;)
and here is what you do:

Take the coaster, and a pritty patterned paper (I have used Anna Griffin Willow collection) from patterned paper I cut out a circle larger then my coaster (about 1inch larger in diameter)
Then I glued coaster to the paper, right in the center

Then I have cut up sections of paper into "flaps" and glued all around coaster.

When I was done with that , I glued my doily right in the center with double sticky tape
set the eylet with eylet setting tool
Next step you might want to skip, if you are the begginer, and just glue your image in the center of the doily.
But, if you are willing you can do heat embossing with UTEE( I did 3 layers of UTEE on my piece), afterwards the heating process place your image in the refregitrator for a few minutes,then remove from cold  and push with your finger as much as you can, to crack the enamel

Then I used some of the wet chalk to make my image more "vintage"
just by rubbing chalk over the cracked image
Proceed to decorate to your taste
Here you can see the crackle effect of UTEE
And, this is my finished gift:

Could be a lovely and memorable gift to someone who has a new baby  boy in the family;)
Happy crafting everyone!
For russian speakin readers I had this MK done in russian, and you can read about it here:
