Posts Tagged ‘Faux Dichro’

It’s Friday already – the week has passed quickly and today I’ll make a card for my SIL who celebrates her 40th birthday this weekend.

This weekend we’re blog hopping at CropStop! Read more here!

I promised you yesterday that I would give you something not so pink today… So I will!

Let’s start with something blue, very blue.

I made this LO for a challenge at CropStop a few weeks ago, using plain white cardstock which has been stamped and colored with Distress Inks, and the felt is actually a place mat for the table! The apricot colored flowers are Prima, from their Carribean Collection. Some jewelry parts in silver plated was to finish it off.

More blue, but a winter motif:

The word SNOW gets diverse reactions in our family. DH hates it, it has to be shoveled, while the kids love it, at least for a while. Up here in the north we do get a lot of snow, and it stays usually until mid April. It’s a long winter…

I’ve used Bazzill CS and plain white CS which I cut with the Gazelle to get the lovely edges. Tags, swirl and paper flowers are also Gazelle, the fabric flowers all comes from silk flower arrangements. I’ve used a lot of jewelry parts on this one, from the flower centers to the parade of ice bears! Oh, don’t forget the Distress Inks…

More blue…

Again plain white CS, Tim Holtz mask and Distress Inks, added some UTEE in platinum to the swirl, Crackle Paint on the chipboard alphas. The date tag is colored with Alco Inks. A 7Gypsies Inspection Tag, some Prima flowers and then bits and pieces from my stash. The paper flowers are Gazelle and inked.

Yep, the small pieces down in the right corner are mosaics.

My dining room floor was good enough to scrap!

Looks lovely, doesn’t it? Brown Bazzill CS, handmade paper from Svartvik, with inked edges, a swirl in gold from the Gazelle, some Prima flowers and a few jewelry parts.

Back to blue…

White CS, Tim Holtz masks, Distress Inks and some UTEE in platinum along with Heidi Swapp clock stamps gives the background. The silver colored stuff are all jewelry parts, the blue frame is clear acrylic colored with Alco Inks, the tag is made with the Gazelle and the flowers are Prima (Mini Can). The name tag is made in Faux Dichro technique.

The silver colored net is something I found in my fabric stash.

Yes, you’re absolutely right. No printed paper today, either! I will give you some of that next week…

I have uploaded my LO in their gallery, and it’s here, too. Go check CropStop out – some fun things are going on there!

I found a piece of Madison Avenue PP for this, some handmade paper from Svartvik Paper (this is so lovely to put Distress Inks on!), some lace and ribbon, a Gazelle-cut flourish and tags. And I realized that this was the first LO for weeks I’ve used PP on! Yay! Have a look at the others further down this page – no patterned paper…

I played around in purple… Lots of stuff cut with the Gazelle and I had just got my Dusty Concord Distress Ink. Shows, huh?

Back to pink! That’s Kelly’s color, all the way. Plain white CS, handmade paper, both colored with Distress Inks, the CS also stamped and masked with a Gazelle-cut. Laces, lots of jewelry parts, some UTEE and Prima flowers.

Crackle Paint on the chipboard and UTEE gold on the metal flowers.

Mmm… A walk in the forest in the fall… So nice!

Plain white cardstock with a Tim Holtz mask and Distress Inks, some gold cardstock under the handmade paper from Svartvik and some stamped Alvin flowers and some Gazelle-cuts. Hey, what’s that tucked in with the flowers?

Ooh! Faux Dichro! I will tell you more on this technique later on, I have to check out some other alternatives to do it first. Usually this is made by using dichroic glass and a fusing kiln, but mine isn’t wired, so I have to do it the “faux” way! The buttons I’ve used as flower centers are DressItUp, which I love. Comes in so many colors and shapes!

After a long walk in the forest, one surely is allowed to have cupcakes – especially when you still are outdoors and a bit cold… White CS again, the same Tim Holtz mask and even more Distress Inks… Some flowers of various origin, UTEE in bronze, and that lovely journaling stamp is from Stellas.

img_7397

I’m very into copper at the moment, this is a jewelry part.

img_7398

Luckily I’m surrounded by girls – because I love scrapping in pink! All shades. Pink! White CS with some Glimmer Mist (homemade variety!) on it, a round swirl lace – Gazelle-cut – stamped and inked, two overlays, one is stamped, the other colored with Alco Inks. Some flowers from Prima and Bazzill, and goldplated jewelry parts. And a strange flower…

img_7399

The translucent flower is actually made of melted UTEE, poured into a silicone mould.

img_7403

No, I’m not kidding. More pink! White CS, a swirly lace cut with the Gazelle and then inked and stamped, some lovely pink lace I found at Tradera, and all the other paper embellishments are cut with the Gazelle, too.  The overlay inside the ticket shape is stamped with Staz-On and colored with Alco Inks.  I added some gold plated jewelry parts for the bling…

No, no more pink today – I’m off to bed! I think tomorrow will be blue. Or brown. With some dashes of pink…

Ramsan lärde jag mig under mellanstadiet, när vi precis börjat läsa engelska.

Papperet kommer från K&Co, Amy Butler, cardstocken från CC Hobby, bokstäver från American Crafts (Thickers) och American Traditional Designs (chipboard), texten på de ovala taggarna är gjorda med ett magnetalfabete, stämpeln på manila taggen kommer från Catslife Press (finns hos PaperMaze) som är chalkad och mistad (glimmer mist har jag gjort själv, recept finns här på bloggen), blommorna kommer från Prima och har blivit doppade i smält UTEE, bakom blommorna en glasbit med Faux Dichro, fjärilen är också doppad i UTEE, utstansad och embossad med hjälp av en Cuttlebug die. Epoxybradsen kom i en RAK från Vicki, de blomformade hittade jag hos CC Hobby.
