Vintage New Year2

Another card for the New Year.
I do like the vintage style with the kraft paper.

Starting  with the clock die by Tim Holtz
out of black paper  the clock and the clock hands.
Then using a silver dabber on the paper, but only slightly
and rubbed rock candy distress stickels on top of
the clock and let it all dry.

Next I colored the image with copic markers and 
rubbed a little of the distress stickels on the dresss
and let this dry too.

For the background I used the new and wonderful musical
tissue paper by Tim Holtz idea-ology. I cut out a piece of
cardstock 5 x 5 inch put some glue on it,
wrinkled the tussue paper and gluedit to the cardstock.
Put this in a box and sprayed it with Puerto Rico
blue glimmermist and also set it aside to dry.

Meanwhile I put all the flowers together andadded also
some distress stickels.

The tab is made of double folded kraft paper
with the sentiment printed on it and inkted with
walnut stain all around.

When all was dry, I  glued all the pieces together
and finish the card. I made sure the clock hands
were in between the couple (now they can kiss behind them
at 12 o'clock).

The picture and the sentiment are by

Hanukkah day 8

On the 8th and last day of Hanukkah I have some ATC's for you.
I have wrapped them in this nice folder.
You can find how to fold this in one of my earlier posts here:

 Because the ATC's are a bit bulky, I just sandwiched them
in the booklet. It is great to make a gift like this.

Thee booklet is made out of Tim Holtz Kraftresist
paper  (8,5 x 11 inch) and I used the technique as described on
The blog of Tim Holtz
with the 12 tags for Christmas.

 The stamps used on all the ATC's are
from Club Scrap, Create with TLC,
Stampin'Up! and techniques from the Blog of Tim Holtz.
as i enter this post for Grungy Monday,
who is celebrating Tim Holtz products.
And there are prizes to win from Simonsaysstamp.
 ATC 1: uses Gadget Gear die and tickets.
The Hanukkah wish on the ticket is a
digital stamp from Create with TLC.

How to get the stamp on the ticket?
First I resized it to the size of the ticket
and printed it on a normal piece of print paper.
Than I fastened the ticked with masking tape on
top of the print paper and reentered the paper
in the printer and now it printed the image
on the right place on the ticket.
The image is colored with pencil.
 ATC 2:
Swntiment by Create with TLC,
Menorah by Club Scrap,
embellishment by Tim Holtz.
The background of the tag is like is described
with tag 8 by Tim.
 ATC 3: here I wrapped an old
slide frame in the tissue paper and
rubbed some distress stickles on it like
on tag 12 by Tim. Inside the image by
Create with TLC  as the menorah should
be lighted in front of a window.
This is the back of the ATC's that I made
digitally and colored with pencil and rubbed
some walnut distrss ink around the border.
Have a creative Hanukkah!

Hanukkah day 5

On the 5th day of Hanukkah I have a silver and blue card for you.
For this card I used the
"Paisley"stamps by Michael Strong

them with silver embossing powder and did the same with
one of the larger paisley shapes.
On each shape I glued a silver gemstone.

The Happy Hanukkah sentiment is by Stampin'Up!
and also embossed in silver.
