Tag, Your It!

Good morning, peeps!

It's a new week an another challenge at our UYS Challenge Blog.

Stephanie has asked us to create something with a tag. Well, I decided to make a tag, hope that's ok with her :)

All stamps I used for my creation are from Viva Las VegaStamps.

Mini Book for Sentiment Stamps

As probably most of you have seen in our Viva Las VegaStamps Group, I am reorganizing all my stamps. I found a way that suits my working methods best. 

Before, I had all my stamps in plastic containers and had inlets with all sentiments stamped so I knew exactly the size. The inlets are too small for the amount of sentiments I have now.

   I decided to leave the stamps in the container, but have an external index. This is why I created the little book. 

I cut thick Card Stock into two 41/4 x 6" panels and watercolor paper just a tiny bit smaller. I used the Whimsical Tribal Face as my main image, the sentiment from Plate 1490 and the heart from Plate 1480 (One of my favs!) I also used some stencils with Distress Ink on my background.

I made the mini book with my Bind-It-All, haven't used the little machine in ages, so glad I still have it!

Happy Sunday and happy Crafting ♥

Gelli Print Scraps ...

Never throw anything away .....

Today I was making Gelli Prints, this little piece was ready for the trash, but then, on second thought, I turned it into a small tag :)

Never mind the crease in the girls face, it's on purpose ... LOL

 Happy Crafting ♥

*HELLOOOOO* Mail Art for Viva Las VegaStamps

The title says it all: "HELLOOOOO"!

Hi all, it’s my very first posting as a member of the design team 2018 at Viva Las VegsaStamps!

I'd like to show you some mail art with one of my favorite stamps, the little boy in the tub boat.

I started by applying distress ink in three different colors (Stormy Sky, Dried Marigold and Peeled Paint) and spritzed it with some water. After stamping the main image and the word, I stamped the background for some more texture. I used stars, cross stitch and numbers as well as the cute little fish.

I applied some bleach to the main image.

For the address label I used a cross stitch stamp and a sticker from the German Post Office.

Some close ups of the background:

*T* is for technique ♥

 Some snark at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

 Look at the smart Master Board from Sistah Lee, quite an inspiration, isn't it?

Well, I didn't find much snark in my sentiment, but in connection with the smart looking gent I think it goes well!

I used Titan Buff on Dictionary paper and created the circles with an espresso cup dipped into coffee. The sentiment is from Lisa's Altered Art.

I added Washi Tape for the little one to sit on ♥
Happy Weekend and Happy Crafting!

I reached another goal .... and a dream came true!

I had so many goals for 2017, most of them I reached, but this one is very special to me. 

I have always admired not just the awesome stamps from Viva Las VegaStamps, but also the beautiful creations from the design team.

Now I'm part of this wonderful team, and I still pinch myself, I just can't believe it.

Now my dream came true!

I will give my best to meet the expectations :)
