Door sign

Hey bloggers,

today i wanna show you the door sign i made for the Simon says stamp and show challenge.
This weeks theme: anything but a card.

So i thought i could do the door sign i have for a long time now.
It looked like this when i bought it and it was only 1€.

I painted the whole thing with chocolate brown acrylic paint.

I covered it white crackle medium and then i painted it with white acrylic paint.

Then i cut out some roses from a paper napkin and glued them on the sign with Mod Podge.
I also covered the whole sign with Mod Podge.

After this i stamped on it with a floral stamp and a butterfly stamp. For this i used Archival ink in sepia. On the back of the sign i glued some lace all around the edge..

I also glued some lace on to hang it.

I glued on some Alphabet stickers.

And also flowers.

Now i am working on another tea box. But this time its for me.
Here is a sneak peek

What i did last week

Hello blogging friends.

Some days before New Years Eve i got the message that i could start a new job in march.
For this new job i have to learn a lot new things so i decided to buy a notebook where i can write down important things.
And as i would like to be a bit different from others, i altered it a bit.

The notebook has had 2 acrylic covers. I removed the one on the back for another project.

The front cover i glued together with the red cardboard cover page. For this i used Tim Holtz Tissue Tape. I left the top side open so that i can put in an old book page from an old lexicon.

Then i used archival ink to color the edges.

I then decorated the hole book with some Prima stuff, Bling, an old key old buttons from the fleamarket.....

My notebook fits this weeks Simon says stamp and show challenge:
something old something new.

Happy New Year!

Hey Bloggers,
Happy New Year everybody.
I hope you spend some wonderful days with your family.
I had a wonderful last week. I will get a new job soon. And i am so happy about it :-)
We spend the New Year's Eve with the family, some friends and their kids.
It was very funny, the food was delicious and we talked a lot.

I did not have much time for crafting during the last days, but today i made a tag for my father in laws birthday gift. This tag fits for the Simon says stamp and show challenge:
a Tim Holtz themed tag.

I stamped the background with a text stamp and embossed it. Then i coloured the tag with some selfmade glimmer mist. After this i covered the whole tag with some clear embossing ink and used clear UTEE for embossing.(2 times)
I made a small flower from TH craft glassine paper. The glassine paper was inked , i stamped on it and then headed it to get the ink into the paper.
I also added some rhinestones and a banner made from the glassine paper. I wrote "Happy Birthday" on it and also heated it so the paint stays in the paper. The last thing i added was some twine.
