Tutorial Typewriter Card with Visible Image

I love old typewriter! Welcome to my Saturday tutorial with Visible Image stamps: today I create a couple of simple cards using one of my favourite set One Kind Word.
I've made two versions, on white cardstock and using a book page:

Stamp on a piece of cardstock the typwriter from the set 'One kind word', stamp it also on scrap paper and cut it out.
with this one mask the typewriter
lay the stencil Geometric Maze and dab with a sponge several colours of Distress Oxides
lift up the stencil
add a sentiment, here I used the sentiment stamp set Own It!
for the second card I used the stencil Count me in and a sentiment stamp from the typewriter set

VideoTutorial: Mandala Christmas Decoration and Altered Book

This week in my Etsy shop I put two new mini stencils set "Little Capri" and "Little Sorrento" and I needed to test them!
In this post I show you an altered book (a quick and lucky MixedMedia project made with very few supplies) and some sparkling Christmas decorations, with a video tutorial. Hope you like them :-)
I've found the tiny lovely image, the focal point of this cover, inside this old book, a full color dictionary dated 1970, a treasure bought for 1 € at a second-hand shop.

And the Mandala Christmas decoration, made out of embossing paste and glitter:
Here the video tutorial: 
Let me introduce you the new 'Little Capri' stencil set

And the new 'Little Sorrento' stencil set

Videotutorial: Gel Printed Tag Minialbum with floral felt ribbons

I've been a crafter for so many years now and I confess I've been a craft supply I have in my stash, unused, for a long time, these floral felt ribbons. I thought they could be a nice addition  to my collection of hand-made texture plates for gel printing: I made a video where I create some prints and with these I create from scratch a tag minialbu,inspired by the artworks of @daveykit. Hope you like it :-)
I embellished with stamps byVisibleImage

With this I participate on MiniAlbumMakers challenge blog.
