Ciao a tutti, stiamo per entrare nel mese di Agosto e il caldo continua! L'argomento di Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog per la prossima sfida è decisamente facile e interpretabile in milioni di modi: FOOD AND/ OR DRINK! Non c'è molto da spiegare! Dovete solo ispirarvi o aggiungere qualcosa che richiami cibo o bevande nel vostro lavoro!
 Ultima settimana per la nostra Designer di Luglio, Beulah Bee, per noi è stato veramente un onore lavorare con lei in questo mese! Grazie per i tuoi progetti sempre favolosi!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the You’ve Got The  Edge Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week the challenge is: Food and/or Drink.
This challenge is pretty self explanatory! We would like you to include some food and/or drink on your creation! We will be looking forward to seeing what tasty goodness you serve up for us this week!
It is Beulah’s last week with us in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say a huge thank you for all of your fabulous creations over the past month. it has been a real pleasure to have you along with us again!

Ho scelto le tazze da the di Tim Holtz per il mio lavoro e ho creato un pannello con un arcobaleno di Oxides e Paper Dolls! Per fare da sfondo alle mie tazze   ho utilizzato un foglio di Ranger Cardstock Kraft e il timbro Graph di Tim Holtz usato insieme alla polvere da embossing bianca e qualche piccolo tocco di oxides ( che sul kraft sono fantastici, prima o poi arriverà un progetto fatto in questo modo!)

I chose Tim Holtz's "Tea time" die for my work and I created a rainbow with Distress oxides. To create the background for my cups I used a sheet of Ranger Cardstock Kraft
and Tim Holtz's  stamp  GRAPH. I  used it  with white embossing powder and a few small touches of oxides ( on kraft they  are fantastic, sooner or later will come a project made in this way!)

Avendo  a disposizione i due set di Oxides la prima idea che mi è venuta è stata proprio quella di un arcobaleno! Le tazze sovrapposte a creare una piccola torre si prestavano perfettamente e chi meglio delle Paper Dolls per movimentare il progetto???

I looked (I admit, very pleased!) My new Oxides and the first idea that came to me was just that of a rainbow! The cups stacked to create a small tower are perfect and who better than the Paper Dolls to give life the project ???

Come sempre ho usato Ranger Heavystock per preparare le mie basi e ho fatto diversi abbinamenti ma tutti di una stessa tonalità!

As always I used Ranger Heavystock to prepare my bases and I made several combinations but all with the same hue!

Ho tagliato la cornice con del cartoncino spesso e poi l'ho ricoperta con Ranger Crackle texture paste, una volta ascitta con gli Oxides ho creato anche qui un arcobaleno di colori! Ho ripassato tutti i bordi con Distress crayon Walnut stain.

I cut the frame with thick cardboard and then covered it with Ranger Crackle texture paste, once dry I  created a rainbow of colors with the same  Oxides that I used for my cups! I highlighted  all the edges with  Walnut stain Distress Crayon.

Gli abbinamenti di colore a partire dal basso sono questi : Salty Ocean e peacock feather, Lucky Clover/ Peacock feather e Cracked Pistachio, Twisted Citron e Cracked Pistachio, Wild Honey e Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmaled/ Wild Honey e Abandoned coral, Picked raspberry e Wilted violet.

The color combinations from below are these: Salty Ocean and Peacock Feather, Lucky Clover/ Peacock Feather and Cracked Pistachio, Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio, Wild Honey and Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmaled/ Wild Honey and Abandoned Coral, Picked raspberry and Wilted violet.

Anche questa settimana mi sono lasciata trascinare dalla fantasia, mi rendo conto che non è un progetto esattamente in linea o nello stile di colore con cui di solito uso i timbri e le fustelle di Tim Holtz, ma siamo in estate e la mia voglia di colore ha superato tutto!

Also this week I used my creativity to realize a project  a little bir different from my usual!! We are in the summer and my desire for color has exceeded everything!
