Bits and pieces of Tando here and there

Sometimes I collect all my " bits and pieces" made with Tando to showcase them here. There are only some small pieces of Tando on every single project, but all together you can see the strenght of those chipboards and the great final touch they add here and there.
So the first one is this mini book I did and I used the medium size Scalloped Nested Square frame
covered with White Fence crackle Ranger paint to frame my darling granson's photo.




The second one is this cute btight card made with Tando banners- again, I know. I just love them so much and they add so much interest to any paper project.



 And here are Tando pieces used here

Cupcake card

I had fun with the cupcake chipboard, but this ended up being a card that can only be hand delivered due to the size of it!


I've used patterned paper for the base and acrylic paint swirled for the creamy bit. Instead of a cherry, I used a flower cut from the flower row, added a flower on top of that which was filled with Viva Decor gels and glitter gel. The whole thing was then sat on a base from the scallop pack.

These are the chipboard bits I used:

Christmas is coming.....

Just look at this adorable Printers Tray that Ann over at Skrapz has decorated.  Isn't it gorgeous!!  So versatile with the stands but these little trays also make ideal special Christmas cards when used with the covers.

I am just so Cute



These speech bubbles are in our ribbon kit for September and they are just so fun to use! I wanted to do a funny layout using them and this pic of our Papillon when she was a puppy was just perfect!

Again I have used Echo Park's Summer Days and have coloured the speech bubbles with ProMarkers, the ribbons and journalling card are also in the kit

Using Tando masks for the second time- and I love it!

This is my second time using Tando new masks and I am in love with them! So easy to use, so great to paint inside, two seconds to clean- just the perfect - perfect ones for scrapbooking.. Or any other crafts you make.
This time I misted the Random  Circles mask with Clearsnap mists and then outlined it with a white pen making some faux stitching.
I also added 3 birdies on branches from the grab bag- as my lost forever home cat Donny was a big fan of birds and was chaising them all the time.. This is his very last photo on his very favorite place for a nap as he just left us and never came back after 15 years, most probably left to die in some far away from home place.

Here are the chipboards I used here

And the mask I love so much!!

Cloud tag

I made a tag using a new stamp and one of the clouds from the ~{Grab Bag of Clouds}~ was a perfect choice to go with it. I used acrylic paint and added a doodled outline.


 I also used some of the ~{Stitches Group Mask}~ to accent the tag, again using acrylic paint.

Fall is here (or Autumn) and needs Tando chipboards to showcase it

When I love something deeply, I can't let it go. So those Journaling Large spots are one of my love ones and this is a second project I make using them in the same wall deco kind of crafting.


All 4 of the shapes were covered with patterned papers and then embellished and I also added some more of Tando pieces here, such as a Small Scalloped Bunting and a smallest Scallopes Nested Square. The first one was just slightly inked , the second one was  inked and covered with Ranger 3D Crackle Glaze . Then the last one of my birdies from Birds on the Branch grab bag was added- covered with inks and some  glitter.



Here are the Tando pieces used here:
