Banners with Irit

 Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my Banners week. This time I made a card- but it's a totally Mixed Media one, made with my own mono print background cardstock and then stamped over  and Tando banners are the only embellishment over this art piece.
I stamped over them too and heat embossed the stamped words and inked them around.

Tando product used:

Banner Week - Canvas

Hi folks,

for this weeks project I felt the need to go bright and bold with one of my favourite characters, The Mad Hatter...........

If you can't quite read the quote........

"Trust me. I know a thing or two about liking people, and in time, after much chocolate and cream cake, 'like' turns into 'what was his name again?'" (Mad Hatter/Lewis Carroll)

Here is what I used........

Bunting Large Scalloped

Mini Mask - Distressed Diamond

Distorted Harlequin Mask

The Mad Hatter stamp is from The Octopode Factory, the bunting stamp was loose in my stash. The paints used are Decoart Media Fluid Acrylics.

If you fancy playing along with any of our themes this month please check out the link at the top of the page. Any makes shared will be entered in the monthly draw and be in with a chance of winning some gorgeous Tando goodies.

Many thanks for popping by today,

Another Banner!

Helloooo!  Karen here with another banner for you!  I have used the 'Scalloped Banner Singles' for my project and added stamped butterflies to it.

Each pennant has 2 sections.  The bottom section was decorated by spraying some DecoArt Media Mist  (orange & purple) through the 'Diamond Circle' mask.  The top sections was painted and left plain.  I sprayed some white card using the above sprays before stamping & cutting out the butterflies.

Hi Gez here, delighted to be sharing my creation with you today for the 'Anything Goes' theme. I hope you can join in the fun! The Design Team have been sharing lots of gorgeous inspiration this week and I am thrilled to add mine to the fun!

I started out coating {Mums Kitchen Wall Hanging} kit with black Gesso.

'Fly Away'

Hello crafty peeps, it's Lisa here and it's my turn today to show you what I have created for this weeks 'Anything Goes' theme. I've called this creation Fly Away and I've used one of the Tando Mini Printer Trays (152mm x 152mm with cover) along with many other Tando yummy products.

Here is the front of my Printer Tray.

I first assembled the tray then painted everything with white gesso, then gave it a coat of scrummy chocolate brown and sprayed loads of water to give a vintagey look. 

I used a die cut to cut the oval frame shape and layered lots of embellishments. I used the grab bag arrows, mini keys, grab bag hearts, buttons grab bag and the bug set 1 - small along with some other bit and pieces from my stash.

On the inside of the tray, I used some pattern paper for the background then decorated with more wonderful Tando embellishments.

I used some of the embellishments I used on the front and added one of the butterflies from the butterfly grab bag and a bird from the grab bag mini birds. I also used some metal embellishments and played with different techniques to decorate. I painted some with acrylic paint and heat embossed some of them with copper and clear embossing powder. I also filled a couple of the rectangles with crackle paint.

Here are all the Tando products I used which are available on the Tando Website.

NYC that never sleeps

 Hello my dear crafty friends!
Today I am going to share my eternal love aka Tando Printer's trays.
So as you can see this is a tray with a cover and I made it as my NYC love piece.
There are a few places around the world that you can love or hate.  New York is such a place for most of us. Some are just fascinated by this huge never ending city; some, like my husband, visited it a couple of times and would never come back. For me New York is the whole world! I love this city and I am in love with it. I can come back twice a year and still find new places to visit, new food to try or new shops with unbelievable sales. I love the streets, the smell and the lights of this unique city. So making New York deco was a great fun.
Others than the tray Tando products were used here too:
The scalloped frame on the cover and the Grid rectangle background in the  right inside of the cover.
I used PHP  themed papers and stickers and made a few die cuts to add to my deco piece.
