Inkspirational #187 Gold dipped

We have a new challenge at Inkspirational and this time Marlena has chosen the theme of "Gold dipped". An interesting theme, right?

I actually thought this was going to be easy-peasy, I love gold, but then I started to complicate things with the "dipped" part.
 As  you can see I "dipped" my reindeer in gold embossing powder. The stars are stencilled with gold glitter paste, I partly dry embossed the background and stapled on some sequins.

In my head I visualized a wintery look - ombré style - going from white to more and more gold. It didn't really turrn out like I hoped it would, and no time to do a remake right now but when I get some more time on my hands I might have another go...
My teamies did a great job -please head over to the challenge blog to have a look.

Twofer Wheels

Today I have two cards to share for the Twofer Card Challenge #16 which is WHEELS. 
For both cards I used dies from Tim Holtz. 
I made a birthday card and a Christmas card. 

 

1) Birthday card
On my first card I inked with a lighter blue for the sky and I used browns with a stencil to make the road. The citscape is cut with a Memory Box die, all others are Tim Holtz ones. The birthday greeting translates "You're not getting old, you're getting better"
This card is also for: Allsorts - #519 Transport


2) Christmas card
For my second card I splattered with white paint and water onto the the inked background. I stamped a greeting and some trees, then I used Tim Holtz dies for the car, tree and snowy hill.
This card is also for: Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas - #437 Anything Christmas Goes - optional theme: Include a tree or two or more

    Inkspirational #185 - Tea photo

    We have a new challenge at Inkspirational and this time it's a photo challenge.
    I was inspired by the theme of beverage, the yellow of the tea label and the neutral colors.

    I used a die set from Creative Expressions to make the coctail. I colored the pieces and added vellum to make the glass (was supposed to be acetate but couldn't find any in my stash). I heat embossed a greeting onto a tag. Paper came fee with a magazine.

    This is the first card I've made in weeks. I've been away on holiday with my mum and have prioritized spring cleaning back home as mojo has taken a hike. But I hope Easter will be a productive time for cardmaking and visits in blogland.

    Gift card holder with penguin

    Monday is ‘anything but a card’ inspiration day over at Catch the Bug. Last Christmas I realized a few gift card holders would have come in handy, so this year I’ll be sure to make some.

    So, my first one is ready. Here I’ve used some papers that have been in my stash for ages, I believe they are from Bo Bunny.  I colored up a penguin and added glitter glue for snow.
    I added the gift tag with twine. This way the gift card holder could easily be regifted to someone else, if the person receiving this decide to do so. In my family I see we reuse gift bags from year to year, I think it’s a beautiful little tradition of ours, and environment friendly too.

    INKspirational - Use your stash

    We have a new challenge at Inkspirational and this time Carol has chosen the theme of USE YOUR STASH.
    I encourage you to head over to the challenge blog for inspiration from the rest of the team.
     
     
    I kind of went 'all in'... 


     So what did I put on this card? 
    There are 3 different papers from a Kaiserkraft pad. The sky I decorated with gold embossed moon and stars - they are hidden somewhere behind all the frantage. 3 die cut snowflakes with liquid enamel dots in the center. I used a Tim Holtz die set to make the village, very fiddly, and I completed the scene with some additional trees and fences made with dies from another set. The sentiment sticker is also T. Holtz and the cute hedgehog is made with a stamp from Penny Black. So lots of stuff on here, even for me.
