You've got the dreamer's disease ► VLVS!

 

Hi, peeps!

Me again for your entertainment and inspiration.

I have yet another AMF project for you. You remember …. AMF = Art Meets Function. 

 


This time I used the Display Stand, designed by Eileen Hull together with a bunch of Viva LasVegaStamps:

 10289

14097

14094

14849

14088

Sentiment 20354

 After assembling the Display stand, I cut panels and stamped the leaves and flowers randomly. I stamped the daisy silhouettes in different colors on corrugated board and pimped the edges with just a bit of golden embossing powder. It looks grungy and I love it.




 

This display stand could be used for a calendar, or as in my case for pictures of the loved ones.

Have a good tome, stay safe, find time to craft and look forward to the Halloween season, aren't you excited yet?

Luv ya ♥

Destination unknown ► VLVS!

Hi, my friends,

  today I show you a little page for my Art Journal.

I have used a lot of different stamps:

 19045 from Plate 918

10766 from Plate 850
19019 from Plate 890

20172 from Plate 1495

20165 from Plate 1495

20170 from Plate 1495

19642 from Plate 1459

I stamped my main image and masked it with a piece of scrap paper. I just randomly added all the other stamps and sprinkled some ink on top. 

Kind of reflects my mood nowadays, still not being able to go everywhere due to partial lock downs.

 


You'all have a good time and stay safe

Follow your heart ► VLVS!

Hi, my friends.

 Today I show you a wedding card.

 


I used the following stamps:

 World map

Banksy Love Bug

Sentiment

Flowers

 I started by inking my background, and since they will go on a cruise I added some water drops. As an afterthought I added the flowers also, just to give my car a bit of “ground” and not let it hang in the air.

 After stamping the beetle, I masked the image and stamped the map on top.

 I added the sentiment and now I hope, they will like it and have a fun trip after their wedding.


♥ Please enjoy the summer, 

find time to craft and stay safe ♥

Who's bad - VLVS! Blog

Hi, my friends ♥

My Teamie Natalie has made so many ICAD, I was already a bit jealous. No, just kidding. She's doing great art work.

 

I thought I might try myself and created one with a "wink" in my eyes.

I inked the background with 2 different green distress inks and stamped the star along with the little sheep.

 After adding some interest with the doodle dots, I stamped the sentiment. I thought „fired brick“ was the right color to go with the green.

It’s a bit weird, but I like it, I hope you do too.


I have used the following stamps:

19944

20375

19822 from Plate 1471

19827 from Plate 1471

Enjoy the summer, stay safe and find time to craft. Luv ya 🧡

The usual suspects ► VLVS! Inspiration Blog

Hi, peeps!

Me again for your entertainment and inspiration.

I have yet another AMF project for you. You remember …. AMF = Art Meets Function.

 

 
 
This time I upcycled a box in which I received sunglasses. I kept it because it has magnets to open/close. I love it, it looks so elegant.

I stamped my lovely ladies and masked them. After adding (their) wings I colored the backgrounds and added more stamping for more interest. 

 I rubbed off the masking fluid and colored the ladies. I wasn’t sure about the sentiment, since I tend to give my art work as presents to my friends. Well, for this one I need to find someone special.











 I have used a lot of stamps; I list them for you:

Ladies from plate 1517

Wings from plate 1523 

Sentiment from plate 827

Doodle Dots

You are beautiful from plate 1471

Create Art every day from plate 1459

The small words (nobody saw) ..... also from plate 1517

Thanks so much for stopping over. You guys have a good time, stay safe, take care of yourselves and have fun crafting.

Luv ya 🧡

AMF - Art meets Function ► VLVS!

Hi Peeps!

It’s me again with a little excursion into 

AMF - Art meets function“.

 

You know that I very often combine art with something functional either as home decor and something useful as pen holders or boxes for keepsakes.

Today I show you the new covers of the vaccination passports of JJ and Charly.

I used a water colour paper I had created some time ago; I always have some in my stash. I stamped the cat silhouettes and my most favorite stamp, the doodle dots as well as the sentiment on my panel.

After stamping the scrabble letters, I cut them out and glued them on the cover. I repeated that step to give them some dimension.

Adhered to the passports I must say that I really like the new covers. I bet my vet will be a bit surprised.

 








Wanna see how dull they were before?
 

Sneak of Charly and JJ?


I have used the following stamps:

Scrabble Alphabet

Doodle dots

Cats silhouettes

You are beautiful

Thanks so much for stopping by, my friends. Please stay safe, take good care of yourselves and find joy in your art.

Luy ya ♥

She was a dreamer ► VLVS!

 Good morning, Peeps ♥

Today I show you another addition to my canvas triple.

 

I started it last year and two are already hanging on the wall of my studio.

Again I started with distress ink in warm red and yellow and left out a part in the middle. I stamped the vintage lady and the sentiment on tissue paper and used Mod Podge Matte to adhere it to my canvas.

I used the same colours distress ink to colour her dress and hair.

 For more interest I spritzed some ink on top, added the wooden charms, the metal ring and string and ready is my little canvas.

 


  

I tend to give my creations to friends, those three I’m sure I will keep.

Remember the last two I made?
 

I used the following stamps:

Fed-up Vintage Lady
She was a dreamer
 Both from plate 1459
 Thanks so mch for stopping by, have a great day, find time to craft 
and take good care of yourselves.
 Luv ya ♥

Inhale the future, exhale the past ► VLVS!

Good Morning, my friends,

 today I show you a condolence card. Sometimes it just needs one of them. I created it for a friend, she didn’t want the black & white regular one, so I “pepped” it up a bit.

 


  I stamped and heat embossed the flower on a piece of an old book page and distressed the edges. I stamped the sentiment, matted it and adhered everything on red cardstock. I put another sentiment on the inside as comforting words.

 





 I have used the following stamps:

20036

19892

20224

 Please find time to craft during these difficult times, stay safe and happy
