Donate to Create Sizzix - Thinlits Circle Flip Die

Good Morning Everyone,

Here is my card for Donate to Create this coming Wednesday. The card is made with Sizzix- Thinlite Circle Flip Die. This is a fun and easy way to make a card. I used most of the pieces from the set to make this card. The designer paper is from My Mind's Eye Joyous Collection, this one is called Flourish. I added some pearls and voila. I put a plain piece of cream card stock on the inside, so you can had your own sentiments.

Playing with Gelatos!

Happy Friday! Last week I went to the Art journaling class from Kim and Lori and I learned all about GELATOS!!! They showed us a lot of different ways to use them and we got to try and play with them, way to much fun, let me tell you!I already had a few colours...but I did not have any darker colours so I had to buy the set Steampunk. I had some time to play...and I tried different things at home...for this card I cut a piece of watercolour paper, I put some of the Gelatos on a acrylic block and spritzed it with Lindy's stamp gang mist (silver) because I wanted some bling to it, water would do or any glimmermist you have.
Then I put the piece of wc paper on top of the block and put some colour on, let it dry, and went back it with the Gelatos right on the paper, smeared them with my fingers and a bit of the mist. Then I took a stencil out, it's hard to see in the picture, and I rubbed a babywipe over it, I had to rub hard since this is such a fine stencil but I only wanted a bit anyway. Stamped the sentiment from Paper Smooches with black archival ink, sprayed some dots with a dusty concord distress marker in the spritzer, cut the die from Memory Box , matted the piece on some charcoal paper on a kraft card base and added some Viva cream pearls. 
Hope you like it!! Happy crafting and till next time, Anja

Please specify the five colours that you want when you register for the class. We are also using Gelatos in the class which is a favourite among the designers at the store.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Look what I made at Art Journal night!

Andrea here still glowing from last night's Art Journal Class
We learned different ways to play with Gelatos
also the difference between straight on paper and gesso'd paper
(psssst- much easier on Gesso'd paper)

We finished off our tags with some stencilling and stamping with an uber cute bird set that will be back in stock soon as we started a 'must own this set please order' list ;)

Now I need to build up my gelato stash hee hee

Happy Crafting!

As you can see, I did have some time to craft, and I enjoyed it so much! The top card is for TOONIE TUESDAY, August 19 at 2 PM, this is where you bring a toonie and a basic toolkit and you get to make the card, the stamp is from Penny Black and the sentiment from Paper Smooches.

The second card is for DONATE AND CREATE, on August 20 at 1 PM, for the month of August we are asking for a donation of school supplies, if you can.

Really hope you have a change to join us, if you live close by! Otherwise, I hope you get some inspiration out of those cards. Happy Crafting, Anja

Beloved Stars

Good Morning Everyone,

This up coming Tuesday I will be doing Toonie Tuesday. This will be my first. Hope you can join me. I am using the Beloved Star die from Memory Box. There are so many possibilities with this die. I decided to make a baby card but I couldn't decide whether to make a girl or a boy card so I did both. So you can decide which one you would like to do.  The paper is from Carta Bella line called Baby Mine.

Hope to see you this Tuesday. Thanks for looking and have a great day.
