Loving thougths with Topflight stamps

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here again and this week we were challenged to make project with stamps from the most gorgeous Carabelle Studio that you can find in our Topflight Stamps shop.
Each and every stamp set from this company is totally unique and fit for any Mixed Media project, scrapbooking or pretty simple cardmaking.
So here is my Mixed Media card made with  one single stamp set " as is"- I used each and every stamp in the set in different techniques.

The basic background was made with one artistic stencil and texture paste.
Then the background color was added with mists  and the main image was stamped with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder.
The butterflies were stamped over the thick cardstock in the same way and then hand cut  and added with 3d foam  glue over the card.
The sentiment was stamped with white embossing powder over black cardstock  and just a few rhinestones  were added to finish this card.
As  you can see this can be made with totally different colors of mists. If you are in this pink or purple mood you can do this card pink and purple. If you are in this fall kind of mood it can be done orange and  deep red and green. Just pick the color and it's done in no time.
Just remember to jump to our Topflight Stamps shop and to grab this delicious stamp set.

Collect Beautiful Moments shadow box with Penelope collection

Hello my dear crafty friends! Irit is here today and I welcome you to my new craft tutorial made with a video tutorial.
Shadow box with Irit Shalom

 This shadow box is very easy to make and it can be used as a real gift box or as a gift card holder or even as a photo frame.
Just make one or many with the most gorgeous BoBunny new released Penelope collection as as you can see this project has no Mixed Media products or hard to get ones. On the other hand even if you only have this paper collection and a few BoBunny embellishments you can make this beauty in a really short time.
This is how it looks when opened:

 One side is just the embellished side and it should be pretty flat if you want to close the box after all.
The  deep box side is embellished just a bit as we want it to be ready for the small gift or photo or whatever you wish to add inside.

 As you can see the left inside has some depth, but not too much.

 The box right side has the space for anything  you want to add  inside.

 Here is another close- up to the left box side.
I used wooden heart shape, some hand cut from the cardstock flowers and a couple of die cut pieces (the parts of the larger die cut frame from Ever after cards dies.
 The cover was embellished with the same hand cut flowers, die cut leaves and some paper and fabric flowers with the add on of the wooden birdcage and some rhinestones.

You can see all steps on this video link HERE:

And also the products list was added to the video, I add it here again  for the easier  future use.
BoBunny products used to make this project:
Penelope collection 12*12'' cardstock: Moments, Abbey, Grace, Laugh, Live
Ever After card dies
Lovely Leaf dies
Double Dot Aqua jewels
Double Dot Emerald jewels
Licorice jewels
Heart wood shapes
Birdcage wood shapes

Thanks for being here with me today and for watching my video. I am still on my learning curve, but I think it's easy to understand tutorial and hope you would try to make the similar project some day.

Hello my dear crafty friends!
This canvas is a first of a few Mixed Media projects made  this month just for some web challenges.
So this is my door shaped Memories canvas and it's also perfect notebook cover (if I decide to add it over the same size notebook or journal). I made over the stencilled canvas with chipboards  hand made door over. I used a lot of stencils over the piece and a huge mix of mediums, paints, waxes and mists.

Everyone is unique with Magenta

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here today and I am going to share my small stamped altered wooden box.

This is actually a package I used from BoBunny wooden shapes and it's totally perfect to be altered with small stamps and a sentiment.
First the box was painted with simple acrylic paint.
Then I stamped one single stamp with three women images and hand cut them. The images were stamped over Magenta patterned paper, so there was totally no need for any coloring inside the images.
I stamped using black pigmented ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

Two  sheets of Magenta cardstock was used from both sides.
First I made the purple square matting to fit each square box spot. Then I die cut some small doilies to make the second layer in each box. The stamped image were glued with 3d foam glue in three spots of the box.
Magenta sentiment I wanted to use here was perfect, but too big for the last square inside the box. So I cut the author's name and the upper word " always" and it's still the best sentiment that fits three different women's images. It just means that nobody is unique and everyone is pretty much unique after all.
The box was embellished on the corner with a cluster made from silk and paper flowers with  die cut from the same paper leaves and one more flower was added over the upper right stamped face.

This last photo was made to show the depth of the box and the 3d effect.
