Post 359: Vintage Shabby Chic Card (Bauble)

Hi friends :)
Happy Sunday!

I'd like to share a Vintage Layered Shabby Chic Christmas Card today. This was part of my DT work for Bob n Betty, all the details can be checked out here. I made 2 cards, this is one of them. This one features a Christmas bauble :) The sentiment reads, "with love". 

Synopsis of the Process:

This card is 4.5 by 8.5 inches in size. There are multiple layers in the card, the main panel is made from Decoupage paper (Vintage Wheels Collection). I’ve added hand stitching to the borders, for a finished look & as a textural element. The edges of all the papers and mats were deckled and distressed for a worn out look. Elements used for layering & embellishment include lace, old book papers, torn pieces of scrapbook papers (Woodies Collection), twine, die cuts, wood embellishments, gems, net, gauze, pollens & buttons. Some of the elements were foam mounted to get a 3-d look and white gesso was dry brushed on some of the elements like the pollens to get a more shabby look. In the end, white splatter was created with white acrylic paint, to imitate the look of snow and a few pearls were added using perfect pearls.

List of Supplies:
Bob n Betty Decoupage Papers- Vintage Wheels Collection
Bob n Betty Papers- Woodies Collection
Sizzix Tim Holtz Die- Mini Holiday Greens
Prima Heavy White Gesso
Prima 3d Matte Gel

Post 357: Warm Wishes Card

Hi friends !

I'd like to share a winter themed card today. I did stenciling on the cardbase with a snowflake design stencil using blue and grey inks. Then softened the look by lightly ink blending vintage photo distress oxide on the card base. For the die cut panel, I stamped the tea cup in brown & hearts in dark grey, then did ink blending around the edges of the die cut. The panel was then foam mounted on the card base & a natural jute twine was added in the end. 

List of Supplies:

Winnie & Walter Stamp- Warm Wishes to You
Winnie & Walter Essentials- Lana Cutaways
Snowflake stencil
Distress Oxide Inkpads- Vintage Photo, Peacock Feathers & Broken China
Altenew Crisp Dye Mini Inkpads- Silver Stone, Industrial Diamond

Post 355: Clean & Simple Mixed Media Layout- Amazing

Hi friends!

I'd like to share a Clean & Simple Style Mixed Media Layout today. I wanted to maintain a lot of white space and use minimal layers and embellishments. For this, I created the background with Lindy's sprays and did some stamping with a Kaisercraft butterfly stamp & archival ink. The photos were matted with panels created by using acrylic paints and sprays along with icraft stencils. The layering was done with a few die cuts and a doily. The title is an icraft wooden embellishment colored with a black alcohol marker. In the end, splatter was created with white gesso and ink. 

List of Supplies:

Prima Forest Leaves die
Prima Finnabair Heavy White Gesso
Kaisercraft stamp- Butterflies 
Icraft stencils
Acrylic paints 
Lindys Drop Dead Diva Shimmer Spray set (purple and green used)
Ranger's Archival Ink- Jet Black
Sizzix Tim Holtz Die- Wildflowers
Black & white cardstock 
Canson Watercolor Paper 
Tacky glue

Here is a full photo of the layout:

Post 354: Floral Card- Sending Hugs

Hi folks!

I'd like to share a Floral Card today. I like making cards which have neutral sentiments like "sending hugs" or "thinking of you" since they can be used for many occasions. How about you? 

For this floral card, I blended pink distress oxides onto the edges of the scalloped rectangle die cut (watercolor paper) and then sponged on the picked raspberry distress ink through the Icraft floral stencil. Then stamped on the pretty flower from a Designs by Ryn stamp and sentiment from a HLS stamp and did watercoloring on the flower. The cardbase was stamped with a background script stamp in light grey ink. Finally, the panel was foam mounted on the cardbase. 

List of Supplies:

Designs by Ryn Stamp- Flowers (flower)
Happy Little Stampers Stamp- Doodled Flowers (sentiment)
Icraft floral stencil
Hero Arts Background Cling Stamp- Thanks Script (background)
Winnie & Walter Essentials- Audrey Cutaways
Distress Inkpad- Picked Raspberry
Distress Oxide Inkpads- Picked Raspberry & Worn Lipstick
Versafine Onyx Black Mini Inkpad
Archival Inkpad- Shadow Grey
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers
Canson Watercolor Paper
White Cardstock
Ranger's round blending tool and foams
