DT Deni - Animals

Good Afternoon Everyone,

DT Deni here today sharing a card with you following on from our theme of "Animals" for the month of August.

I have used a stamp set from Stampendous House Mouse Collection called Cling Balloon Surprise.

The image has been stamped on Mondi Color Copy 250GSM with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink using Misti Stamping Tool (with rubber removed).


I must say how impressed I was with this stamp, I don't think I have ever used any of these stamps previously but the stamping of this image was absolutely spectacular..it was a crisp clean stamp and I was super impressed with the details on the first stamping in that I didn't even need to stamp it a second time.

I coloured up the image using Copic Markers. I did have a Copic Colouring and Process Video but unfortunately lost it all in the editing process, can't even tell you how upset I was :-(, after many days of computer issues I was slightly let down.

**EDIT - How lucky am I!! I found my videos and was able to save them woohoo! So at the moment I have the Copic Colouring process for you here, and the process video here.



So unfortunately this is a quick blog post with not much information as everything was thrown out after the video was made (I will make sure I start writing everything in a book from now on hahah).

Thanks For stopping by,

DT Teresa - Animals

Hello everyone!

This month we are sharing projects featuring animals on the Auzz Trinklets and Crafts blog. Many companies have brilliant creature stamps and Neha has numerous styles of animal stamps in the store, from Katzelkraft critters to Clearly Besotted beasties to Lawn Fawn fauna - you are sure to find something to suit your style!

Today I am again working with stamps from one of my favourite companies, My Favorite Things.

This card uses Neenah Classic Crest 110lb Smooth Solar White Cardstock for the base which is cut with a paper trimmer at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored with a teflon bone folder at 5 1/2" to make a top folding card of 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".



I die cut a frame with a Sizzix Big Shot Machine from My Favorite Things Dienamics Stitched Cover-Up Companion - Vertical four times from Neenah Classic Crest 80lb Smooth Solar White Cardstock and adhered these together on top of each other using Ranger Multi Medium Matte. I stamped the sentiment from the new My Favorite Things Happy Hippos on the centre of the frame with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and then adhered the frame to the card base. 

I used the same die to cut a small rectangle piece from My Favorite Things Calm & Cozy Chevron 6x6 Paper Pack to fit inside the bottom rectangle of the frame. I first adhered it to one piece of Neenah cardstock left over from the frames I cut earlier and adhered it in place to the card base. I then diecut a piece of Simon Says Stamp 100lb Cardstock - Green Apple with Lawn Fawn Stitched Mountain Borders and a piece of Simon Says Stamp 100lb Cardstock - Seaglass with the same die. I pieced these together, adhering them to one larger rectangle piece of Neenah cardstock from the top of the frame. I then cut away the overhanging pieces of coloured cardstock with Tim Holtz Kushgrip Scissors and placed the rectangle back into the larger rectangle of the frame and ran it through the Sizzix Bigshot Machine again in order to have the stitched edge on the rectangle piece. I adhered this in place onto the card base.

I cut the sun from the Simon Says Stamp 100lb Cardstock - Sunshine with the Mama Elephant Stitched Sky die set and trimmed the rays off a little at the top and on the right using a mini guillotine, similar to the Tonic Studio guillotine. This enabled me to tuck it snugly into the corner inside the frame.




I then stamped the hippo, birds and balloons from the My Favorite Things Happy Hippos in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, using my Misti Stamping Tool onto X-Press It Blending card. I coloured these using Copic Markers and cut each image using a Brother Scan n Cut as I did not have the coordinating dies on hand. I placed these onto the card using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape to add dimension.

I completed the card by adding Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins - 4mm and 6mm.

Thankyou for following along with me today. If you cannot find the items I have used (listed below) in the Auzz Trinklets and Crafts store, be sure to drop Neha a message via email or Facebook and she will do what she can to order the product in for you.




Happy crafting and have a great day!


Teresa

DT Deni - Monday Focus

Hi Everyone,

DT Deni here with you tonight.

Not a normal monthly DT post here. But some of you may know that I have decided to start trying to make You Tube videos of my colouring and card process. I have finally worked all this out. There is a few little hiccups along the way but I feel like I am getting better and better.
A few people have been awesome and given me feedback on things I can do to make them better. I am hoping in my latest video that I have been able to do exactly that.

My first video - the turtle is horrible! Yes I am being honest hahah. I wasn't sure how to make a you tube video.. I started out videoing in one program and then in a second, this has made my video jump around and the background music cut in and out. **EDITED this video has been removed apparently the music in the background which was part of the editing software was a breach of copyright laws**

Anyway onto the good stuff.. Video 2 is a Copic Colouring video, I have coloured up the My Favorite Things Space Explorer stamp set that I recently received in an order from Auzz Trinklets n Crafts. I'd love for you to pop by my You Tube channel and check it out.

Here is the card I created using the image from Video 1.



Once you have watched it, i'd love for you to watch video number 3 which I have just finished editing tonight. I have made a few improvements on this one - I slowed the video down a little, I added pictures of the completed project at the end, I am focusing on my nerves.. had all my supplies written down so I didnt feel on the spot too much when I was doing the voice over. I have also had my ventolin before talking and concentrated on my breathing haha. I am still struggling a little after being sick two weeks ago. I would love your honest feedback if you think there is something else I can improve on.

Thanks for stopping by and we hope to see you again over the next few days as the DT Girls share their "Animal" themed projects. I will see you on Saturday with a project and hopefully another video to go with it.

DT Kerry - Animals

Hello everyone,


This weeks theme is "animals" so I thought I would make something other than a card and produce a scrapbook page.  Its been a while since my last layout and I have been wanting to scrap a page of our relatively new dog (now 2 years old) since we bought her home.


The kids absolutely love her and she brings so many laughs (and who's turn it is to feed her arguments) to our home.


I hope you find some inspiration to create a page of one of your pets (if you have one).


Thanks for looking!




 I started off by using some Strathmores Bristol Smooth cardstock and stamping the fox stamp from the Altenew Origami stamps with Versamark ink several times and embossed with the Ranger Super Fine embossing powder in white.  I then blended some Tim Holtz Oxide inks in Broken China and Cracked Pistachio colours over the page.  After splattering some water to distress the background and flicking some Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron, I was ready to start laying out my design.



I wanted to include more than one photo (so I could include both children) and felt that it was too congested with them all being visible, so I added a "flap" so you could lift it to see the other pictures.  Having the die cut leaves and flowers also made it fun by adding some more detail... almost like 2 layouts in one ;-)

Happy crafting, Kerry.
