Use It Tuesday March 27th: Uninked Stamp

Hello, Scrappy Friends, 
the challenge on Use It Tuesday this time is using uninked stamp!
The clear or rubber stamps already bought but never used up!

After digging into my scrap-toolbox, 
I found several mini Prima clear uninked stamps and Kaiser Craft, and decided to use them all at once!
I used a long white cardboard and folded it into 3 parts.
 I rolled on some Distress Ink: Broken China and Rusty Hinge for the background.
As soon as it dried, I stamped on the stamps.
 Add on vintage color eyelets and some natural strings.
I did the same with the back part of the white cardboard.
A simple standing frame is done!
Or you can put some pencils and pens to organize your workspace.
Please join us at Use It Tuesday and play along :)
Thanks for looking!

Use it Tuesday March 13: Use Green

Created especially for Use It Tuesday, as the theme is green, I tried to use up as many as trash, reuse-able and recycled materials on my project. Also green color of course! 
Materials used:
- corned beef can
- Prima's pearl paper package
- a cardboard
- baguette/french bread wrapping paper (for the flowers)
Juneberry organza/tulle flowers
Clay-stamped-words (iClay Amos)
Little Yellow Bicycle clear stamps
Kaiser Craft clear stamps
Studio G rubber stamp
Prima brick clear stamp 
Yellow Tiny Plastic Flowers
Foliage Spellbinders Leaves
White Acrylic Paint
Silver Acryclic Paint
Painting Brush
Dew Drop Brilliance Black Graphite
Dew Drop Brilliance Pearlescent Olive
Stickles Star Dust 
Stickles Icicle
Here's the final look on my project.
Here's the steps how I created them.
I peel off the cardboard to get the textures I wanted.
Then I painted it all white.
Time to create the embellishments! 
I rolled up the iClay from Amos into a small ball.
I stamped it with clear stamp from Little Yellow Bicycle.
Here's the iClay packaging looked like. I bought them in a bookstore. 
The black one, I stamped it with Starlite Silver Dew Drop Brilliance Ink.
I want the rectangle shape, so I cut it that way.
It looked like this. 
I was not really happy looking at the edge, it looked rough.
I added some silver ink later to cover the rough look. :)
Here's the half-done-clay-embellisehments looked like.
I painted the circle with silver acrylic paint, leaving the words white. 
Here's the final look of the circled-one.
I add some stickles on the letters.
Stamping some Black Graphite Dew Drop Brilliance Ink on the words and edges. 
The stamps from Kaiser Craft 
and Little Yellow Bicycle made the can look gorgeous!

The sides of can, I stamped them with Studio G rubber stamp.
Cover them with leaves, cut in Spellbinders Foliage dies 
and some plastic leaves I found on my vase. :)
The close-ups:
A picture of me when I was a kid.. :)
The final look on the rectangle embellishents. 
I painted the letters with the smallest brush in silver acrylic paint, 
to create more brightness.
I added up some Stickles on it for the final touch.
The front side:
The other side: 
 I created this to remind myself, to love the earth, to stay green, to laugh more and be reminded always:
Life is Good.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you could join us here for the challenge.

Scrapbook Challenge #285: Just for Flicka

I created this lay out, inspired by a little girl named Flicka. 
Love the paper line, but sorry I forgot the name of it.
We were going on a field trip at Museum Layang-Layang, 
learning to make and paint kites also learning about pottery.
The sketch I used is from Scrapbook Challenges #285
