LeighSBDesigns Christmas in July Blog Hop #20

        

Once again LeighSBDesigns is hosting a blog hop.
 
This time it is to celebrate CHRISTMAS in JULY

If you read my last post I am sure you want to know what happened
 to the base of the other index card...

I had used a Tattered Lace embossing Folder with rustic wilderness Distress Oxide smeared through it. After adding a piece of white card and running it through my Big Shot, I had enough background to make two index cards, matted on green card.


I decided to make the first one with a focus of a sentiment.


My second one used Santa Sandy Oddleigh, coloured with markers and cut out.
Once I had glued this in position, I added silver sparkle to the hat and bottom of the outfit.


I will add this to Leigh's Linky. 


Happy Holidays!



LeighSBDesigns Christmas in July Blog Hop #19

         

Once again LeighSBDesigns is hosting a blog hop.
 
This time it is to celebrate CHRISTMAS in JULY

I am still making ICADs (Index Card A Day, over June and July) and I am adding a couple to this post...sometimes I have to catch up and make three!

A couple of days ago I joined in with a Zoom Craft and Chat with the UK Stampers Network. Mickey was demonstrating a technique which I tried some time later - these days it is too early to take part at the actual time, with the current time difference - I am usually still in my dressing gown!

The process was to cut a wobbly mask from a piece of acetate and then use it to make a shape using Distress Oxides - blended with brushes.
I then added a chipboard made by layering up diecuts.
I then added splatter using white gloss spray.

I made the create index card but also used a version to add to my mixed media calendar page for September - I am trying to get a little ahead. Last year I was making pages half way through the month...

My next index card is celebrating Christmas in July.
I used a Tattered Lace embossing Folder with rustic wilderness Distress Oxide smeared through it. After adding a piece of white card and running it through my Big Shot, I had enough background to make two index cards, matted on green card.


I decided to make the first one with a focus of a sentiment (like create above).
I printed the sentiment from Santa Sandy Oddleigh, trimmed it and placed it on green card.
I added silver sparkle to the spaces in the letters.


I will add this to Leigh's Linky.

Rain Rain Go Away
Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Brother wants to play
Rain, rain, go away

Come again another day
Sister wants to play
Rain, rain, go away
Rain, Rain, go away
Come again another day
All the family wants to play
Rain, rain, go away

I have made a paper-pieced card on a kraft card base.

The image is Henry's Rainy Day printed on white twice, pink, and a patterned paper from my stash so that I could out the various pieces to layer up the image.

 The first layer was white - I trimmed this to size and added vintage photo Distress ink round the edges. this piece was placed on the kraft card base. I coloured in the rain with pale blue. I then added a layer of acetate and then added the pink layer.

Next I added the patterned paper curtain piece. Finally I cut out all the further pieces and coloured them with markers and stuck them in place.

Finally I stamped the sentiment (Altenew) in black at the bottom edge.

Hope you will join in the challenge...

Happy Crafting!

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 552 for 24 July 2021 - Add ribbon



 A new Christmas Challenge every Saturday!




Today Crafty Hazelnut brings a new weekly Christmas Challenge
with the theme 'add some ribbon'

Do pop over and see the fabulous inspiration from my teamies!

If you enter you could win a prize... 
Every week a prize is given to a randomly chosen winner...

This is the end of my mini-album using instructions courtesy of
It is made from black cardstock and chipboard matted with papers from
 Graphic 45 Christmas Time Collection.


Inside it is basically a concertina of card with 5 pockets inserted in each fold.



I have then made tags to go inside each pocket. This is the final one...


The pockets are quite small so the black card on which I worked was just 10cm tall by 9.5 cm wide.
I chose the image as it involves a ribbon.


This is the reverse of last week's tag...
 

Recipe:

1. Black rectangle of card. 
2. The image is Holiday Bells from klm designs. This is painted with shimmery watercolours and cut out.
3. Ribbon added through punched hole.

  I will add this to LeighSBDesigns blog hop CHRISTMAS in JULY

Color Dare Challenge #454

 This is another make for the



Do pop over to the Color Dare Challenge and take a look at my teamies' makes!

This is today's colour scheme 


This is another card using the velveteen technique where a background, stamped white ink on white card, sometimes heat embossed, is over stamped or stencilled with more inks.
One video I have watched is here.


I used a number of different background stamps used with Brilliance Archival in Moonlight White. Some I embossed using clear embossing powder.
On these I used stencils with the marker airbrush.


One tip I picked up in the above video is that it is a good idea to apply the ink to the stamp and then press the card on top of it. The stamp I used today is the Stampin' Up Tree Rings stamp.

I then used Tracy Scott's stencil in another colour with my marker airbrush.


I trimmed this and added it to a white card blank matted with blue card.

I then added the Dyan Reaveley deer image cut out and sprayed with more marker.

Finally I added the sentiment - words cut into spaces.

Hope you will join the Color Dare Challenge...

Happy Crafting!
