Love is in the air

English / Italiano

Hello Crafters!

Here we are to a brand new challenge over Simon Says Stamp! and to my last project as their Guest Design team! I loved being their Guest Designer for this month and I truly hope I have inspired you to look at these challenges with different eyes!

This week’s theme over Simon Says Stamp Monday Challange is LOVE IS IN THE AIR and you must use RED!

I toned down a bit everything with Dina Wakley Ranger WHITE GESSO Media MDM41689 and I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink Stain AGED MAHOGANY Ranger TDW30980 and Tim Holtz Distress Ink Stain WALNUT STAIN Ranger TDW29908 to add color. I let it dry a bit then with Tim Holtz Layering Stencil MESH THS041 and Tim Holtz Distress Ink Stain AGED MAHOGANY Ranger TDW30980 I wanted to create interest in the background by adding subtle texture.


I modeled the wire to get a figure and an heart balloon and I covered part of the figure with Tim Holtz Idea-ology Postale Tissue Wrap Paper and I used Tim Holtz Distress Marker Aged Mahogany to color the heart. I filled one Tim Holtz Idea-ology Corked Vials with Pretty pink Posh Raspberry Seed Beads.

The sign on the top of the shadow box says “in the air”.

For this challange Simon Says Stamp kindly offers a $50 gift voucher to shop over Simon Says Stamp!

Ciao a tutti!

Eccoci con una nuova sfida su Simon Says Stamp! e al mio ultimo progetto come loro Guest Designer! Mi sono divertita un sacco ad essere la loro Guest Designer per questo mese e spero vivamente di averti ispirato a guardare a queste sfide con occhi diversi!

Il tema d questa settimana su Simon Says Stamp Monday Challange è “LOVE IS IN THE AIR” e dovete usare il colore Rosso!
Per questa sfida ho creato questa shadow box usando We R Memory Keepers 8 x 8 CHIPBOARD The Cinch Book Board 61245-2 che ho ovviamente ricoperto con un mix di Tim Holtz Idea-ology POSTALE Tissue Wrap Paper TH93181 e Tim Holtz Idea-ology 12 x 12 Paper Stash CROWDED ATTIC TH92897 usando Dina Wakley Ranger GEL MEDIUM Media MDM41740 per incollare il tutto alla shadow box.

Ho schiarito un pochino i colori delle carte usando Dina Wakley Ranger WHITE GESSO Media MDM41689 e poi ho usato Tim Holtz Distress Ink Stain AGED MAHOGANY Ranger TDW30980 e Tim Holtz Distress Ink Stain WALNUT STAIN Ranger TDW29908 per aggiungere colore. Ho lasciato asciugare e poi usando Tim Holtz Layering Stencil MESH THS041 e Tim Holtz Distress Ink Stain AGED MAHOGANY Ranger TDW30980 ho aggiunto una velata texture sullo sfondo.


Ho modellato un fil di ferro per creare una figura ed un palloncino a forma di cuore, ho coperto il cuore e questa figura con Tim Holtz Idea-ology Postale Tissue Wrap Paper e ho usato Tim Holtz Distress Marker Aged Mahogany per colorare il cuore. Ho riempito una fiala di Tim Holtz Idea-ology Corked Vials con Pretty pink Posh Raspberry Seed Beads.

Sopra alla shadow box si legge (in teoria) “in the air”.

Per questo challenge Simon Says Stamp offre gentilmente un buono di $50 da spendere nello store Simon Says Stamp!

    Alert! There’s too much creativity in this blog!!!
    Scherzi a parte fa impresisone vedere quanti dettagli di arte sei riuscita a mettere in questa shadow box (o bacheca ahaha).
    L’omino col cuore sembra un opera di Giacometti!

    I really like this very expressive creation. All the lively elements give me the impression of excitement since love is “in the air.” The great distressing and many layers really hold my interest. Nicely done!
