So I wanted for a long time to try screen-printing on t-shirts, and last week I finally did!

I got a screen-print stencil from Panduro, and also some paint. Started out making the same print for all of us, only in different colors and combinations. But after making twelve, I wanted to try something different…

So, a deep dig in the cupboard and found some Tattered Angels Glimmer Screens

and Tim Holtz Masks

and I was on the go again!

All you need besides your masks and glimmer screens are a t-shirt and some fabric color – I used the screen-print color from Panduro. To apply the paint, use either a stencil brush or a foam brush.

is easy as 1-2-3! I’ve cut a flourish – which I have stamped, embossed, inked and was ready to use for another project when I accidently damaged it… So I used it as a mask instead!

Put a tacky-drying glue thinly on the back. I’ve used Kläber-fix but Wacky Tack, ZIG two-way or any other glue that dries tacky will do. If it dries too tacky, like Kläber-fix does, just dust it lightly with baby powder. Attach it to your LO or card and start using it as a mask, then take it off and store it on acetate until next time.

The flourish in the upper left corner has been covered with UTEE in black and gold:

The flourish in the upper right corner is in fact the mask… I managed to hide the damaged part under a flower.

Gloria at CropStop challenged us last week to make a Tim Holtz inspired tag, and here’s my take on it:

Alco Inks, UTEE, Distress Inks, a printed picture of a bag, Gazelle cut keysand some jewelry parts.

As I was about to make another project for CropStop on borders, I included the tag in this one:

BossKut border and Wildflowers and a key, all stamped and inked and a little UTEE on the key, Prima flowers and some AC Thickers alphas, some stuff from my stash. I like the BK stuff here, the border is great and the wildflowers are so easy to make in different ways!

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…
