Inspiration Sizzix dies Garden shed

Hello to you all, I’m here today to show a couple of tags I made with a garden theme to them. I just wanted some spring time inspiration so I googled quotes about spring and flowers and made mixed media tags just for fun. Since I didn’t have photos of my own, I used clippings from garden magazines as my focal points. And then I decorated with the lovely dies from Sizzix called Garden Shed. This set is so cute and can be used for a variety of styles. Other decorations are stencils and washi from Vicki Boutin/American crafts. Vickis collection almost always contain a lot of botanical elements like flowers and leaves. Hope you enjoy and get some spring inspiration!

When working with such detailed dies a good, strong adhesive that is easy to apply is essential. I really recommend the Nuvo Glue pen from Tonic studios. I use the smooth precision kind, but there are others as well.

Create tags- Use leftovers-Sizzix Alphabet Die

For some weeks ago I showed you a notebook where I have used Sizzix Alphabet Die. Today I will show you what you can do with your leftovers when you have used this die. I think you can use the leftovers on many different projects.

För några veckor sedan visade jag en anteckningsbok där jag hade använt mig av Sizzix Alphabet Die. Idag vill jag visa er att man kan använda det som blir till olika projekt. Jag gillar verkligen när man kan använda upp material istället för att slänga.

It going to be tags- Prima have these chipboard tags that are perfect for mixedmedia.

Kommer att gör tre olika tags. Prima har tags av chipboard som passar perfekt till mixedmedia projekt.

Now I have placed the leftover in three different ways. I have used letters on one, created a cluster on one and on the last one has glue and has it like a texture.

Nu har jag placerat mina bitar på tagsen på lite olika sätt. På den översta har jag använt några bokstäver. En av de andra har fått oilka bitar ihopsatta i ett kluster. En annan är bara fast satt som den är.

There we go with some color, gesso, crackle paste and also some Distress Oxides in the flat background.

Så på med lite färg, gesso, crackle paste och den sista har fått Distress Oxide på den platta bakgrunden.

My tags are totally different. I really enjoyed creating them. I really enjoyed using up my leftovers.

Mina tags blev helt olika. Det var ju bara helt underbart roligt att göra dem. Jag gillade verkligen att kunna ta vara på mitt “skräp”.

Notebook-Sizzix and Prima Products

This time of the year, it is time for a new notebook. I want to have a personal look at it.  Here some fabric on the notebook where I have used Tapestry stencil to give some background pattern. On that, I have take numbers and letters from the Sizzix die- Society give more pattern. I have used different paints like Liquid Acrylic Paints and Metallic Acrylic Paint, from Finnabair. I really like to mix silver shades and gold shades in the same project. So on the top I have used Art Alchemy wax both in Vintage Gold and Brushed Iron.

Den här tiden på året är det dags för en ny anteckningsbok. Jag vill ha en personlig så vad passar inte bättre än att fixa det.  Först lite tyg på baksida och framsida där jag sedan har använt stencilen Tapestry för att ge lite bakgrundsmönster. På detta har jag fäst lite siffror och bokstäver från Sizzix dien- Society. Använt mig både av Liquid Acrylic Paint och Metallic Paint från Finnabair. Jag gillar verkligen att blanda både guld och silver på mina projekt. Så på valda delar lite Art Alchemy wax i Vintage Gold och Brushed Iron.

When you have used your die you receive some leftovers, don´t throw them away you can use them in your projects. I will show here on the blog next week what I have done with them.

När du har stansat ut så blir det en hel del över, och släng inte dessa du kan använda dem i dina alster. Jag kommer att visa här i bloggen nästa vecka vad jag gjort med dem.

Hello – A CAS Card using Tim Holtz Mini Media Marks Stamps

Hi sweet friends! Anna here today sharing some CAS inspiration with you. This time I’ve combined two of my big loves, Green and CAS.

Hej kära vänner! Anna här idag för att dela lite CAS inspiration med er. Den här gången har jag kombinerat två av mina stora kärlekar, Grönt och CAS.

To get my white space between the two lines of leafs (underneath the black hello) I used some masking tape when I stamped my leafs. Also I’ve colored the leafs in three different green shades of Distress Inks.

För att få det vita mellanrummet mellan mina rader av blad (under det svarta Hello) har jag använt maskeringstejp när jag stämplade bladen. Sedan har jag också färglagt bladen med tre olika gröna toner av Distress Inks.

Tim Holtz Cling Stamps 7×8.5 – Mini Media Marks

Tag with Moon Child and Art Daily Collections from Prima Marketing.

Hi! 2019 is here and I am looking forward to giving you some inspiration. Two layers of tags with gorgeous paper, Moon Child from Prima Marketing. The tags I have primed with clear gesso before I start-  On that some Icing Paste that gives clear and glossy effect when it dries.

2019 är här och jag ser fram emot ännu ett år som jag kan få inspirera. Här två tags med underbara papper med Moon Child från Prima Marketing. Tagen har jag grundat med clear gesso innan jag startade. Sedan haft på Icing Paste som ger en klar och blank yta när det torkar.

Its so perfect that paper and flowers  matches the paper. That makes it is so easy to create. Here I have also used stamps from the Art Daily collection. So usable small stamps.

Det bästa med Primas papper och blommor matchar så bra med varandra. Det blir enkelt att matcha ihop saker. Här har jag också använt stämplar från Art Daily. Otroligt fina solar och månar som passar till många olika slags projekt.

Also, the girl and sentiment come from the Art Daily Collection.

I Art Dailys serie hittar man även söta vintage motiv och mycket använbara texter.
