Tag with beer blueprints by Tim Holtz

When I was ready with the beer hanging I thought I might make a tag too for my dad. 





At the hanging, I coloured everything with Distress inks but here I used acrylic paints.

I cut out the tag from chipboard.

Both sides were gessoed and stamped and masked and painted and spritzed and spattered and sealed :-)


What I used:

Stampers Anonymous, Beer Blueprints by Tim Holtz (CMS334)

Stampers Anonymous, Hashtags by Tim Holtz (CMS183)

Sizzix Bigz Die, Tag&Bookplates by Tim Holtz

acrylic paints

Ranger Archival inks (Potting Soil, Jet Black)

Ranger Distress ink (Vintage Photo)

Ranger Distress Collage Medium (Matte)



As you can see, I tried to write the name of my dad's favourite beer on the label. That was not so professional, LOL.

Hanging with beer blueprint

My father has two passions: watching football and drinking beer. Typical, isn't it? On his name-day (27.06), he will be very lucky because he can see his favourite team, the Germans in the world cup and I'm sure he is going to drink beer meanwhile. 

So I made a hanging for his name-day that I have to post soon to arrive on time. From Luxembourg to Hungary it will take a week at least.

I'm not sure if you see it but I tried to visualize his favourite beer, the Paulaner on the bottle.

Canvas with crazy dogs by Tim Holtz

Here is my latest make, a canvas with all the crazy dogs for the vet of my dog, Rozi. So this is for Misi (Mishi) who was also my classmate in the secondary school.



I stamped the dogs on a 18x24 cm canvas board with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink using my stamping platform and mask papers.




I hope he will like it!

Birthday card with rusty background and vintage frame

This is my second inspirational project for the June challenge of the Country View Challenges: The written words. This is means you have to add text to your cards or any other crafty projects. 




My first project was a rusty tag and for that had I made a written tutorial, so now I just add some pics. But you have to know that these pictures belong to another but very similar projects.










And as a protection, I put a layer of Matte Distress Collage Medium.




As for the frame...

I cut out the frame from chipboard and I painted with DecoArt Americana Buttermilk colour. After 2 layers and after drying I inked the edges with Ranger Archival Sepia ink, then I put a thick coat of DecoArt Crackle Glaze on the top.




When it was completely dry, I smeared Ground Espresso ink into the crackles.

The text was written on my laptop, I printed it on a 200 gsm paper and then inked, spritzed and spattered it until I achieved a vintage look. I dried the paper and glued to the back of the frame. And again for sealing, I smeared Micro Glaze on the surface.

And I put together my card.




So if you have a project where you added some text, please join our June challenge because you have a chance to win a £20 voucher.

Card with ice cream blueprint by Tim Holtz

When you got your first three scoops ice cream from your mum or dad, you could feel that you finally became a big girl or a big boy! So it was your #bestdayever!




I must admit that for this card I found the inspiration on Pinterest. Another crafter, Emily made a gorgeous card with Tim's ice cream cone blueprint and she put the scoops on the top of the other. You can see it here.

But otherwise, everything else is mine :-) You know that I love the polka dot background and I use a lot this frame in my projects. 

My chosen colours are very similar to the Ladurée macarons and advertisements.


What I used:

Stampers Anonymous, Treats Blueprints by Tim Holtz (CMS195)

Stampers Anonymous, Hashtags by Tim Holtz (CMS183)

Tim Holtz Layering Stencil, Polkadot (THS068)

Sizzix Bigz Die, Ornate Frame by Tim Holtz

Confectioner by PaperArtsy

Heres is my card with PaperArtsy stamps (ZA22, EEg24). Earlier this year I have made a similar card with this confectioner that I think worth a look too if you haven't seen it already :-)




For the background and the background stamping, I used acrylic paints. 

The text was stamped with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink.

The confectioner was coloured with Copic Sketch markers.




Don't you think that my confectioner has the colours of the Ladurée macarons?

Father's Day card with seahorses

For Father's Day, I like to use the seahorses because they are great symbols of fatherhood. This is a very unique species where the father gets pregnant. 

I've already made similar projects with these Sizzix seahorse dies by Tim Holtz, here I just made some slight changes (colours, number of shells etc.)




The background and all the cutouts were painted with DecoArt Americana acrylic paints. Then I sealed them with Matte Distress Medium.

The sand was a mix of Marabu Coarse-Grain Structure Paste, Schmincke modelling paste and two Americana colours (Buttermilk, Light Mocha).

The seahorses were covered with Ranger Crackle Accents, then I smeared Ranger Distress Picket Fence ink into the crackles.

I added two real shells and some Prima Marketing Art Pebbles (Finnabair Mélange) for more interest.




What I used:

Sizzix Bigz Die, Sand&Sea by Tim Holtz (659576)

Sizzix Movers&Shapers Die, Mini Sand&Sea by Tim Holtz (659582)

Sizzix Thinlits Die, Garden Greens by Tim Holtz (661206)

Sizzix Thinlits Die, Funky Floral #1 by Tim Holtz (662700)

DecoArt Americana paints

Ranger Distress Collage Medium, Matte

Ranger Crackle Accents

Ranger Archival Ink, Coffee

Prima Marketing Finnabair Art Pebbles (Mélange)

etc.

Rusty tag with cogs and red heart

Hello everybody, here is my first inspirational make for our June Challenge: The Written Words





For making this tag, I cut out a tag from chipboard with Sizzix Tag&Bookplates Bigz die by Tim Holtz. Then I cut out several cogs from 300gsm paper with Sizzix Gearhead Thinlits die by Tim Holtz and I glued them on the tag (the back as well).

After this, I put a layer of black gesso on my tag - both sides.

I smeared some rust paste mixed with brown paints onto my tag. 

I inked the edges with StazOn Jet Black ink.



The heart was cut out with Sizzix Primitive Hearts Bigz Die from chipboard. I painted both sides red with acrylic paint.

I embossed a piece of 210gsm paper with Riveted Metal Texture Fades embossing folder by Tim Holtz. I painted it red. I glued this piece of paper on my chipboard heart then I fussy cut the excess.

With archival ink, I highlighted the embossed parts end the edge of the heart.

The text is from the Stampers Anonymous, Simple Sayings set by Tim Holtz. I stamped the text with Ranger Archival ink (Jet Black). I cut out and distressed the edges with a knife. The edges were inked with Ranger Distress Vintage Photo ink.

I glued the text strip and the heart with 3D foam adhesive onto my tag.

The arrow was attached with Tacky Glue Fast Grab.




Here is the back of my tag. Cool, isn't it?



This is why I didn't want to put too many elements on the front. I didn't want to cover this beauty :-)

So if you have any project with a text added, please don't hesitate to join our June challenge where you can win a £20  CVC voucher!
