This summer since all my kids are grown-up,
 it was my turn to enroll to a summer camp,
actually a summer CARD camp :o)).
it's my 5th  class on "Online Card Classes".
each week we are given a color combo and 3 sketches
and lots & lots of tips, techniques and inspiration.
i've combined the color combo and one of the sketches 
with a wonderful stamping technique of watercolor stripes that 
shari carroll taught us.
i've used my CAMEO to cut the "Happy"word,
once from a blue cardstock and twice from a silhouette chipboard,
and layered them together .
The bees are from UNITY stamp,which i colored
with copics and covered the bodies with Diamond Glaze.
so now i have a "BEE HAPPY" CARD.

           Thank you for stopping by
                                  and visiting my stage !

This card was done many many months ago, 
on a creating morning with my friend Einat.
It was not long before her dearest kitty passed away,and this Tilda's stamp reminded me of her.
If you want you can pop to Einat's blog and see the real Kitty peeking in her blog's header.

As you can see i did some sewing around .

The card goes well with these challenges :

When i was going thru the photos
and i saw this one, i knew right away
how the LO is going to look like ! :o))

The background paper is My Mind's Eye
life stories "Frequency Grid"paper.
The second layer is Bazil's white cardstock
which i distressed by hand and with some
distress ink (tea dye).
The 3rd layer is a jute sack that my boys
brought me from their grandpa's warehouse.
I cut it to the right size and unraveled some fringes all around.
The photo matting is mad of three layers.

The white one is an architect's thick parchment ,
which i distressed with a ruler.
The other two layers are from a take away 
brown bag, that were also torn with a ruler
and distressed with the same ink.
At the left corner i add a wooden element 
and left it in its natural color.
The letters "S" for sister and "B" for brother
are Tim Holtz's "GRUNGEBOARD".

I colored them with GESSO and acrylic paint.
I stamped the letters on them to complete  the words
"sister & brother" and finally put some  diamond glazed.
The gorgeous flowers are hand made, 
and i learned to make them from a super talented friend
ANAT - go and check her tutorial on her blog !

The two white flowers are made of white baking paper
distressed with a "tea dye" ink,
but the greenish one is made of brown silk paper 
which i found in a shoe  box, and distressed with a green ink.
I just fell in love with these flowers :o))!!
The LO fits these great challenges :
Candy Shoppe Designs - "GO GREEN" challenge.

I took part in a color swap. Each one of the participant
had to announce her preferred color. The swap was
a circle one, and the only thing i knew was to whom
i'm sending the swap and what is the desired color .
Since i made a swap before with the same girl,
and made her a sunglasses case, i've decided to complete
 her a set,  by using the same fabric.
I made a key cosy, in a shape of a house.

and since every decent house needs some $$$$$
i made her, a mini purse, from the same fabric of course :o)) !

And now to the scrappy part of this post,
THE CARD !! I made a "never ending card" which i learned
from my dearest friend Anat the "crafty fairy".

Today my LO is of my DD dancing &
posingto the camera.
But the "birth" of this LO started a week
ago when i took part in a five hour
"ONE STROKE"workshop,
with the talented teacher and artist
The workshop was held in DAFI'S sweet 
studio which is also a talented artist 
and the owner of a crafty store 
"MASTIKIM" (in hebrew that means bubble gums).
The five hours flew so quickly thanks to 
the other girls taking part and the 
wonderful and funny teacher.
After exercising on a transparent sheet
and plain paper we had to choose a 
cardstock and start painting.
So here is the cardstock i chose 

and here Is my first ONE STROKE project.

When i brought it home, everyone was 
amazed by the drawing and to tell you the truth so was I :o)) !!
I decided not to leave that cardstock 
empty, and right away i knew, which photos i'll use.

I punched board the mating under the large photo

and put some household coasters underneath the three small photos. 

I added some PRIMA flowers with rhinestones brads on the top, of my"one stroke" 
flowers, to give some dimension to the bouquet .

The title "DANCING" was made of Tim Holtz's Grungeboard swirls alphas, which i colored with white acrylic paint and then stamped over with UNITY  "Distressed Dots", and SU 
"Pink Passion" ink.
The word "flower" was cut with Cuttlebug and Provo Craft die cut "typewriter".
The LO fits those challenges :
Stamp simply -#126 color challenge "purple & green".
Color Combos Galore -#142 color combo . 
Fussy and Fancy Friday - #4 "Duzzle us".
Practical Scrappers - "Brads".
Practical Scrappers - "flowers".
Raise The Bar - #5 "Be Mine Forever".
Clearly istamp - #7 "Glam it Up".
Saturday Spotlight - "use household item on your creation".

היי בנות ! 
היום הדף המעוצב (LO) שלי, הוא של בתי היקרה (DD) ,רוקדת ועושה פוזות למצלמה.
אבל "הלידה" של הדף הזה החלה בערך לפני כשבוע,
כשהשתתפתי בסדנה בת חמש שעות של "ציור במשיכת מכחול אחת" עם המורה והאומנית המוכשרת  רחלי גזית.
הסדנה התקיימה בסטודיו המתוק של דפי שגם היא יוצרת מוכשרת ובעלת חנות ליצירה בנייר "מסטיקים".
חמשת השעות חלפו כל כך מהר תודות לבנות שהשתתפו בה ולמורה הנהדרת והמצחיקה רחלי.
לאחר שהתאמנו על שקף ודף פשוט, בחרנו קארדסטוק צבעוני וחלק והתחלנו לצייר.
כשהבאתי את הדף המצוייר הביתה , כולם השמיעו קריאות התפעלות ולמען האמת גם אני התרגשתי מהתוצאה :o)) !!
החלטתי שהקרדסטוק הזה לא ישאר ריק ומיד ידעתי באילו תמונות אבחר.
ע"י פאנץ יצרתי בורד מסביב למאטינג שמתחת לתמונה הגדולה.מתחת לשלשית התמונות הקטנות הנחתי תחתיות נייר קטנות. מעל הפרחים שציירתי במשיכת מכחול אחת הוספתי פרחי "פרימה" שחיברתי ע"י בראד עם אבן וזאת כדי לתת לזר הפרחים עומק.
את הכותרת Dancing הכנתי מאותיות גראנג'בורד של "טים הולץ".
צבעתי אותן בצבע אקרילי לבן והחתמתי מעל עם חותמת של "יוניטי" 
ועם דיו של "SU".
המילה Flower נחתכה ע"י הקאטלבאג בעזרת תבנית חיתוך של  Provo Craft.
הדף מתאים לכל האתגרים שציינתי למעלה.

חוגגת יום הולדת שנה לבלוג שלה 
ומקיימת בלוג קנדי של מותג התכשיטים
שלה " וינטאג' פלר",
קיפצו אליה ולא תתאכזבו !!
רגע,רגע זה עוד לא הכל יש בלוג קנדי 
נוסף בבלוג של אלונה 114 

תודה שקפצתן להציץ מאחורי הקלעים שלי
ותודה מראש אם תשאירו "עקבות" :O)) !!

לטקסט בעברית נא לגלול למטה

My card today is again a LOVE / VALENTINE theme.
The inspiration for this card , started with
La, La, Land challenge that said "No DP" 
no designer/decorative paper, only cardstock, 
and If The Shoe fits - with a color challenge "pink, red, white". I've used a white cardstock which i've dry embossed with Cuttlebug "Allegro" embossing folder.

The owl and the sentiment are UNITY stamps .
i've cut another pair of the owl's eyes and glued them with 
3D glue , adding two blings to them.

The owl's cardstock and the red cardstock beneath it
were cut with scalloped Nestabilities.
To thread the pink ribbon, i've used Fiskars punch.
To achieve a balance i added a pink ribbon at the top as well.

היי בנות !
הכרטיס שלי היום הוא שוב בנושא אהבה / יום ולנטיין.
ההשראה לכרטיס הזה החלה עם האתגר של La,La, LAND  
 שקבעו שאין להשמש בנייר מעצבים או כל נייר מדוגם אחר,
אך ורק קארדסטוק! ועם האתגר של If The Shoe Fits 
שהוא אתגר של צבע שאמר "ורוד, אדום, לבן".
השתמשתי בקארדסטוק לבן שעשיתי לו הבלטה קרה בתבנית
ספר שקופה- "אלגרו" של "קאטלבאג". 
הינשוף והאמרה הם של חברת "יוניטי".גזרתי זוג נוסף של עיני
הינשוף, הדבקתי אותם עם דבק ספוג והוספתי שתי אבני בלינג.
הקארדסטוק הלבן של הינשוף והקרדסטוק האדום שמתחתיו
נחתכו בעזרת תבנית עם שוליים מסולסלים (scallop) של "נסטאביליטיז".
כדי להשחיל את הסרט הורוד, השתמשתי במחורר של "פיסקארס".
כדי להשיג איזון ,הוספתי סרט ורוד גם למעלה.
הכרטיס מתאים לכל האתגרים שקישרתי למעלה.

תודה שקפצתן להציץ מאחורי הקלעים שלי
ותודה לכן מראש אם תשאירו תגובה .
