Project:: Shadow frame

I bought a couple of shadow frames at IKEA, so I used one right away for a photo of my niece (who else???) 
The photo is from Karpenissi, where she rode a horse with her mother, for the first time and he was sooo thrilled!
What I did in order to acieve a 3d look is that I printed the photo twice and then I cut out from the second photo my niece and the head horse and adhered them on the whole photo with 3d foam dots. You can't see it here, but it really made the difference.
Then I adhered the photo on a white cardstock and colored on it so as to "expand" the view and then I added the decorative pieces, they were adhered on 3d dot stacks I made and I also varied the depth.
Here I colored the front piece of a horse drawing and adhered it on the project right next to the back of a real one that was in the photo, so as the horse will look whole. I aslo added some glitter on the mane.
I made the "branches" by stamping with the same stamp on various cardstock and paper pieces, and then accented the flowers with Stickles and...ready!

Rania's Layouts: July 2009

Here's a summer layout I did a few days ago, when my brother brought me the photos from their 2009 vacation - better late than never!
The background paper is K & Company, the seashells are stamps from a Hero Arts clear stamps set, I also used some glossy varnish for some shine. The title was cut from a piece of foam pad and I colored the letters with my copics. I also wanted to add something like a net for fish, so I used a kind of tulle I had, I just colored it with a copic in order to achieve the color I wanted.
For the flower I used a stamp from a StampTV stamps set, after coloring it with my copics I heat embossed it with some UTEE and moulded the petals in shape before it was completely cold. Then I added a few of Martha Stewart's microbeads, on top I adhered a foam dot and on top I positioned a charm that I had colored with a copic and then heat embossed with UTEE (this way the color will not fade).
Last touch some free hand doodling with a white pen and...ready!

Card Making: Summer 3d card

After a long fun summer with a few technology hiccups with no apparent reason:
1.laptop crashed and I had to perform something despicable that starts with the letter F, (that is FORMAT, raise your hands in horror!!!)
2.internet connection got lost in space for about a week printer decided to stop doing what it's supposed to do, that is to print
4. memory card mysteriously lost all content 

I felt courageous enough to touch my keyboard without being afraid that it will decide to spontaneously combust just for fun (LOL!!!).

It's been a creative summer nevertheless, and here's a happy birthday card I made for a friend of mine:

It's a cute Sarah Kay stamp, the rest is just the ordinary, you know, inking, stamping etc I also ventured to add some shine and maybe I overdid it a bit but as they say there is no such thing as too much bling!
Here's a side view:
That's it for now, hope you're all well and busy crafting, see you soon!
