Floral card with SSS Beautiful Flowers set

Here is my latest card for my sister who celebrated her nameday lately.




For this card, I used the Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Flowers stamp set.

I stamped the image on a 300gsm watercolour paper (Canson) with Ranger Archival Coffee ink.

First I coloured with Spun Sugar and Bundled Sage Distress inks, then for enhancing the colours I added a little Picked Raspberry and Twisted Citron.

The text is from the My Favorite Things, More Essential Sentiments stamp set and was stamped with Ranger Archival Coffee ink.

I inked the edges with Ranger Distress Antique Linen ink and added some sequins for more interest.

Christmas scene with MFT stamps

Hello everyone, now here is my third Christmas interior with MFT stamps (you can see the first here and the second here).



Here I coloured the tree a little different from the second card where I gave you a full colouring tutorial.

So... first I covered the whole tree with G24 and shaded with G46, then I shaded with YG45. 



Now, here is the difference... I blended the colours with YG61 and that's it, no more colours.


The supply list is the same than at the second card, so please hop on that blogpost if you need the list of the products.

Halloween wine tag with ghosts

This is my fifth Halloween wine tag!!! But I so enjoy making them :-)

If you want to see my earlier tags, please click on the "wine tag" label on the sidebar.




For making this tag, first I cut out the wine tag from 300 gsm watercolour paper with the MFT (My Favorite Things, Die-Namics) wine tag die.

Then I stamped one of the images from the Distress Damask stamp set by Tim Holtz on the tag for making a patterned background. I heat embossed the stamping with Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder.



Then I blended Carved Pumpkin Distress ink onto the surface.




I inked the edges with Gathered Twigs and Ground Espresso Distress inks.




I cut out the ghosts with Sizzix Bigz Die, Ghosts (660963) by Tim Holtz from 300 gsm watercolour paper and inked the edges with Gathered Twigs ink.



Behind the ghosts' "faces" I glued brown paper inked with Ground Espresso.

I adhered the ghosts to the tag, cut off the excess and added my last "open if you dare" text from the Occasions sticker book by Tim Holtz.

Wine tag with Mr Undertaker and dotty background

Now, this tag is a mixture of my two earlier tags with slight changes of course. 



Here I wrote a tutorial on how to make the dotty background with Shifter Stencil by Tim Holtz. But for this tag, I used four colours instead of two. These are the following: Ranger Archival Shadow Grey, Watering Can, Majestic Violet, Tiger Lily.





Here is my other tag with Mr. Undertaker. But since I ran out from the "open if you dare" stickers I used the Regions Beyond stamp set which has exactly the same text :-)

Halloween wine tag with Mr Undertaker

Hello everyone, after my witch wine tag I'm here with another one which is a remake of my earlier tag



For this tag, I took a piece of watercolour paper (Canson 300gsm) and cut out the tag. For the Distress inks, I usually use this paper because it's quite sturdy and when I spritz it with water it's not a problem.

Then I blended the following colours on the surface: Carved Pumpkin, Seedless Preserve, Wilted Violet and later a little Dusty Concorde.




The edge was inked with Ground Espresso and Black Soot.

Then I spritzed a little Distress Spray Stain (Brushed Pewter) on a plastic sheet and I spattered the tag using a brush.



After I decided to add spiderweb to the upper part. For this, I used the Ranger Archival ink, Jet Black colour.

The skull was stamped with the same Archival ink on Neenah Solar White paper and I coloured the bony part with Ranger Distress Antique Linen carefully keeping the teeth white.



I fussy cut the skull and adhered to the tag.

I just thought Mr Undertaker needed something to be more pretty so I cut out some flowers and inked with Wilted Violet.



I added a text sticker and smeared Black Soot ink onto the whole back of the tag. 

And for protection, with my finger, I dubbed Micro Glaze onto the surface (both parts).


What I used:

Stampers Anonymous, Undertaker by Tim Holtz (CMS240)

Stampers Anonymous, Webs&Damask by Tim Holtz (CMS276)

Sizzix Thinlits die, Small Tattered Florals by Tim Holtz

Ranger Distress Spray Stain (Brushed Pewter)

Ranger Distress ink pads (Carved Pumpkin, Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet, Ground Espresso, Black Soot)

Ranger Archival ink pad (Jet Black)

Ranger Distress Micro Glaze

Birthday card with funky florals by Tim Holtz

Since there are two birthdays in the family in October, I decided to make a birthday card for the October challenge of the Country View Challenges. The theme is Plantastic and the lovely Rachel will be your hostess.



I covered with the mixture of DecoArt Light Buttermilk and Spa Blue a 300gsm mixed media paper. 

For the background pattern, I used Tim Holtz latest stamp set, the Craze and Planks and the Ranger Archival Watering Can ink pad.



Inked the edges with the same ink, then I toned back with diluted Light Buttermilk paint.




When it was dry, I spattered the surface with Light Buttermilk paint.


For the flowers, I used the two Sizzix Thinlits sets, the Funky Floral #1 set and the Garden Greens.

I chose two cardstocks (a light yellow and a light rose) that I fished out from the mess on my desk and inked the edges with Tattered Rose ink.

Then I adhered the leaves and flowers to the card.


What I used:

Sizzix Thinlits die, Funky Florals #1 by Tim Holtz (662700)
