October - Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Hello Carol with you today, today starts our "Pink bows and threads" week for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Here is my piece:-

The base is an artist trading coin which was painted with acrylic paint - for this project I have used three tones of pink, the medium on the base, then the lighter to stencil thro' the bubbles stencil. The darker pink was added to add "threads".  I tied a small bow with pink ribbon, added some pale pink paper flowers and a sticker quote to finish it all off.

Please pop back during the week for some more Pink bows and threads projects.

Craft Stamper Week by Monika

As you know our team took a part of 3D Challenge featured in November Craft Stamper Magazine. 
Substrate was designed by Di and we had to do the rest :) I have really enjoyed this challenge, it was great to see what other members of our team have created. You can check other projects in latest CS issue which is available now
Here's what I've made...

 I've decided to turn my substrate into an Alchemy Cabinet.

Products list and brief description of my project can be found in Craft Stamper Magazine, page 50.

I hope you like it!

Craft Stamper week with Lisa

Hello lovely lot. Lisa here with today's post. As you have probably heard, the Tando team were given a 3D Challenge to feature in Craft Stamper Magazine. 

We were all given the same 3D substrate, designed by Di to play with and decorate. Being a CS subscriber I have seen all the examples and they are all so different. There are so many things you can do with it. 

Here is my take on it...

I decided to turn my substrate in to a mini stationery kit, so I added some small pieces of paper and mini pencils. I thought this could be a cool little item to keep near the telephone, or next to the noticeboard when a quick list or message would need to made...

If you fancy taking a look at what the rest of the team did with for the 3D Challenge, checkout the November edition of Craft Stamper magazine, which is in shops now!!!

Thanks for popping by the Tando blog today,

Craft Stamper Week By Dee

 Hi Dee, here with my piece for the Craft stamper Magazine, Di designed these little box's for us to use for our 3D piece.
I used illusionary artists dragon fly from the creepy crawley plate and triple embossed with # Stampendous chunky silver embossing powder. 
On the corners I used Deco art Snowtex and little peal seed beads along with stampendous micro glitter. 
Deco art crackle paint and media washes were used to decorate the surface. A few beads from my stash and some snowflake substrate from Tando to complete the piece.
I hope you all like the different pieces that the team have created.
Have a good weekend 
Cheers Dee x

Craft Stamper Week with Jane


I am here today on the Tando Creative blog to share with you the project that I decorated as part of the Design Team article for Craft Stamper Magazine...

I decided to use my box as a double gift box and as the magazine is the November edition I decided to go with a blue and crackly theme.  I used crackle paint and weathered wood as the base to create an aged look and also the Tando diamond mini stencil with crackle paste for even extra texture.
The colour was created using a range of blues from the Decoart Media fluid acrylics, watered down to be make washes of colour...
Stamping was added for extra detail and then I created the butterflies with a stamp and paint which were finished off with some glitter and liquid glass.
For the inside I wanted to create some gifts for the boxes so made two key rings to match the theme of the outside...
You can read about all the projects in the latest copy of Craft Stamper (November Edition) which is available now - and in other good retailers.
Thank you for looking,
Jane xx
