Glitter Eggs

Hi everybody,

There's glitter everywhere around here! I've been making glitter eggs. They're really fun to make, but also really messy. :-) Here are some pictures of some of the eggs while they were drying. I love all the sparkle!




I put some of the pastel colored glitter eggs in a "Norgesglass" (mason jar with Norge (Norway) on it) together with some pine cones. I just love how it turned out, and it reminds me of home. :-)



The washi tapes are from my shop, which you can visit by clicking here.

Have you made anything for Easter yet?

Love,
Tone

Masculine Congrats Chalkboard Card

Hi!

I would like to wish you a very happy, healthy and creative 2014! :)

It's really been a long time since I posted anything here on the blog.. Sorry about that!
But that does not mean that I haven't been making cards! Quite the contrary! ;-)

I've been having some fun with the chalkboard technique again. You can see two cards I made previously with this technique here and here.


How to
For this masculine birthday card, I first white embossed the Hero Arts Watch Gears and the sentiment. I did not remove all of the excess embossing powder, so you can see little white speckles on the black pieces. I think that is a nice added detail.
To create the shadow effect, I stamped both again in Hero Arts White Dye Ink, offsetting the stamps a little from the first stamping. I used Colorbox White Frost Ink to distress the black pieces and drew the border with a white colored pencil.
On the card base I stamped the Hero Arts Pinstripe Background, which adds to the masculine feel of the card.

Have you been creative in the new year already? I'd love to see what you have made, so please leave me a link in the comments so I can check it out! :)

Hugs,
Tone

Color Blocking... Twice

Hi and happy Tuesday!

I hope you're having a wonderful day! :-)

Today's cards are made with some leftover card stock strips and only one stamp.

I took two strips of each color and made a color blocking background with them. I was so happy to find that the four strips lined up and covered the front of a card perfectly, no extra trimming was needed! :-)


For my first card, I went with yellow and purple for the background and the flower image stamped in black and clear embossed for extra detail.


The second card has a softer feel with light yellow and light pool card stock strips. I stamped the flower image in grey ink instead of black to match the softer background. My placement is a bit off on this card, but I still like it. ;-)

I really like how both cards turned out! Which one do you like the best?  :-)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,
Tone

Butterfly Card

Hi there!

Today's scramble over at the Hero Arts Flickr Group was butterflies or rainbows or both. I went for butterflies.


This card is a little bit smaller than a standard size card. The background is stamped in Hero Arts Wet Cement Mid-Tone Ink, and the butterflies are stamped in Bubble Gum, Raspberry Jam and Grape Juice Mid-Tone inks. Can you tell I love these inks? ;-)

These two stamps are some of my favorites at the moment. The Heart Butterfly is so cute, and I think the Wood Background matches so well with the little hearts in the pattern.

Thank you so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful day! :-)

Hugs,
Tone

Cool Motorcycle Bird on a Washi Tape Road

Hello!

My boyfriend is a motor biker and he is also very fond of birds, so with that in mind, this card came to be! :-)


I stamped the motorcycle in Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear embossed it to make it shiny. The bird is stamped in HA Tide Pool ink and the three circles in HA Soft Pool ink. I added a strip of Black & Grey Chevron Washi Tape as a road for the bird to ride on. I love that you can see the stamping through the washi tape! :-) The motorcycle and the bird are adhered to the card with pop dots for dimension.

Have a wonderful Sunday and enjoy the rest of your weekend! :-)

Love,
Tone
