Ruza small

Hi, my name is Ruza Rebel. I’ve been crafting in one form or another since I was a child … crocheting, needlepoint, knitting, scrapbooking, and in August 2009 I started making cards for family birthdays, anniversaries, etc., as a way to stay busy while my daughter was at school, and never stopped.  My blog “Ruza’s Craft Corner” was created in November 2011 so that I could share my designs, and I just recently became Copic Certified.

Thank you for having me as a Guest Designer this month!

Ruza created her gorgeous card using I’m a Raver which you can find in the store here

I’m a social worker, tree hugger and veggie lover. I’m also a lover of coffee. And sheep. And people. Oh and I’m big on crafts (you didn’t see that one coming, did you?). 

At high school I went to the Aesthetic Program – textile/fashion. For several years my crafting was focused on sewing – only. When I had finished high school I was so tired of sewing that my brand new sewing machine was left untouched for a long time. I went to college and didn’t find time for bigger craft projects, such as sewing. Eventually I felt the need to craft again. I started painting… with all the left-overs of my nail polish. Since I worked in the care, I couldn’t use nail polish anymore since that would be against the hygiene regulations. I made small paintings (in post-card-sizes) and I found myself enjoying it. Later I purchased actual paint, instead of nail polish. Then it didn’t take me long before I had discovered the world of scrap-booking/card-making with all the different and fabulous papers, digital stamps and other scrap-booking supplies. I found that it suited me perfectly. It wasn’t too time-consuming or demanding. Also I didn’t have to rip more seams (which my sewing projects had often resulted in). 

Wiola created her fabulous card using Lost Fairy which you can find in the store here
DSCN9347

I have actually painted the fairy in my card with nail polish, except for the skin which I painted with ProMarker – Almond. I still like to paint things (and not my nails) with nail polish. Nowadays I purchase nail polish only for card-making. I guess I’m weird that way. The flowers come from the local craft store Pysselmakaren, and so do the leaves in the corners of my card (I have painted them with green and golden acrylic paint). The little ladybird bead comes from Pärlgården. The background is painted with green, blue, purple, golden and orange acrylic paint mixed with soap (the latter is especially important if you want to create the kind of effect that you can see in the photo). The white stone, which you can see on the right side of my card, was found at the beach. I like to incorporate some natural items in my creations. I love the nature (but I have an irrational fear of ants). I live in the deep forests of Sweden, but you can also find me here: http://chasingfabrics.blogspot.com

Coloring in Distress Ink and Pencil Chalk Tutorial by Valou

TUTORIAL COLORING IN INKED DISTRESS AND WITH PENCILS CHALK

  1. Prepare your material:

    – Brushes: a fine and a bigger one. Personally, I use brushes with reservoir.

    – Your ink Distress.

    – Your box of pencils chalk.

    – An acrylic block.

  1. Prepare your image
  2. 3.Begin by diluting with some ink “Distress Tattered Rose” with some water and recover all the surfaces representing the skin of your character.

 4. With your fine brush, put some ink “Distress Walnut Stain” not diluted on the lines of hair.

  5. Put a little water on your brush then diluted a little ink “Distress Tea Dye”. Pass with this brush on all the hair. Do not add ink! That will allow to have more clear reflections.

6. Prepare your pencils chalk. Take the one which you need. For my part, I choose the pink.

7. Cross withyour pencil chalk on the edges of the zone to color ( the dress). These zones will be the darkest once the ended coloring.

 Val 10

8. Moisten your brush and go back on your lines of chalk by making small circular movements “to pull” well the chalk inward. It gives you more clear reflections to certain places. Continue until the obtaining of the effect for which you wish.

 Val 11

9. Make the same thing with the other zones of your image.

10. Once your image is very dry, rub delicately with a piece of “Scottex”.

Me  - Lucy Gregg

A bit about me? Hmm. Well I’m 33 and live in the beautiful South West of England. I’ve been crafting in one form or another for most of my life. I started card making in 2003 and haven’t stopped since – it’s a bit of an addiction & I’ve now collected a huge amount of card making & crafting stash. I have M.E. so crafting is a great activity for me as it means I can do things on good days but just sit & stroke stash on bad days 😀
I love all sort of techniques but my favourites have to be my Promarker pens & Digi stamps and cutting things with my Cougar Cutting Machine from Thyme Graphics. I generally love making individual things for people.
I’m lucky enough to be on a couple of DT’s including the Digi Galore Challenge blog which celebrates it’s birthday from the 1st August with the help of The Stamping Chef. http://notrealstamps.blogspot.co.uk/
Lucy created her fabulous card using Milk Shake Anyone
13.07.10 - TSC Milkshake
 The sentiment is from Create with TLC http://createwithtlc-createwithtlc.blogspot.co.uk/ and the background is made with Do Crafts Paper Tape. I coloured her with my Promakers.

Thursday Tutorial with Sandy

Hi Friends, Sandy here for The Stamping Chef with another easy tutorial for you to feature your great digi stamps.  Easel cards are a great way to do this and really are easy to do.  I think this will be a Easel Series Tutorial. I guess this would be Easel Part 1.

So lets get started…

  • For basic Easel, Start with 5×10 cardstock and score horizontally at 2.5″ and 5″ and fold.  You will need another 5×5 piece for your picture base to go on front
  •  Now for your Twisted Easel, same measurements but instead of folding straight across, fold from top left corner down to bottom right.  That’s it, so easy!!!!
  •  Here is what it looks like when upright
  •  Now put you adhesive on the bottom triangle
  •  And attach your 5×5 square to the bottom glued triangle
  •  When you start to decorate your card, you are going to fold it in half that way you image is not sideways when you open it
  •  Decorate the front
  •  Decorate the inside
  •  Don’t forget to raise your embellishments with pop dots. This is what will make your easel.
  • And here you go!!!!

Some other great twisted easel cards from The Stamping Chef

Can’t wait to see those Twisted Easels!
