Vintage Christmas Cards- Blue Fern Studios

Hi everyone! I can't believe in eleven days it will be Christmas day, so I've been making Christmas cards like crazy but I wanted to make them without dimension, you know sometimes it's hard to mail the card with lot of layers, flowers, etc... So I sat and made four flat cards with the Vintage Christmas 1 and 2 by Blue Fern Studios.
 This collection is so beautiful that I just cut out some of the images, created a little of dimension with foam tape but not too much ;) , added textures with modeling paste, lace, some paint splatter, glitter and although have details, I can mail them by mail in a normal envelope.
I'm going to show one by one ...

I framed this card with lace, added a small soft blooms and in the background I added gel medium with glitter and white paint splatters.

I created a thin layer behind the paper with cheesecloth and lace. I cut out the adorable image from one of the paper and the sentiment from the Holidays card paper.

 I tear the white paper to recreate a snow hill and added white paint splatters and pearlescent for the snow effect.

I painted the village chipboard with distress ink then I added texture paste to recreate the snow in the roof and in the trees. I made the same effect from my previous card and tear white paper to make the snow hills but this time I added glitter. I added the textures in the background with a stencil and modeling paste The sentiment is from one of the papers.

Thanks for stopping by...Until next time!

Let it snow...Studio 75

Hello scrapper friends!
Today I share with you a page and a Christmas ornament that I made with the new Christmas Time collection by Studio 75.
I love Red Cardinals, I have a bird feeder in the balcony and I really enjoy to watch them daily but this photo is from Pinterest.
I chose the Christmas Time 01 as my base paper and the red torn paper is the Christmas Time 03.

I cut in half the Frame chipboard from Studio 75 and painted with gesso then I apply Vintage photo distress ink. I placed it behind my photo and I cut out the words Let it snow from the Christmas Time 06 and used it as my title.

I gave textures with a snow flakes stickable  stencil by Bo Bunny and a mix of gesso with molding paste. After it's dry I apply glitter paste sugar over the snow flakes that create a sparkly effect. It looks so nice in person!

I added art stones with gel medium to create the effect of snow.

Hello everyone!  It's time to show you my first project with the December Limited Edition kit by My Creative Scrapbook. This kit is amazing and I will show you an unboxing kit video at the end of this post, you will see all the products that come in the kit.
My first page is about Winter and all the beauty that surrounds it... I worked this page with the Blue Fern Studios paper that comes in the kit and the Sweet Peppermint collection. I love that this collection doesn't have the traditional Christmas colors so I worked with pink and blues colors here.
The kit this month is featuring: the Sweet Peppermint collection- Frank Garcia for Prim Marketing, Authentique and Blue Fern Studios papers. Also Blue Fern Studios chipboard, Prima flowers, chipboards, sequins and more... American Craft alphabet , trimings, ribbons and more...

I painted and embossed the Blue Fern's chipboard with snow embossing powder then I cut it in three pieces.

I mixed the two styles of flowers from the Sweet Peppermint collection that come in the kit.

I love the antlers chipboard it goes perfect with my page and this beautiful creature in my photo then I added a sticker as my title...Peace on Earth, yes we need it!!!! Peace!!!

To add drama to my page I mixed molding paste with  glitter gel and used a snowflake stencil from Bo Bunny to create the background in my scene...and I love the effect!! If you could see it in person the snowflakes have a pretty sparkle effect!!

A Cold Winter Page....

 Hi everyone! The new Winter Wishes collection by Bo Bunny is very beautiful, I made a white mixed media winter page with it and I also used the Pentart and Bo Bunny mixed media products. Let's take a look....

 I think this collection is perfect to work my photo of last winter, the white trees behind me, the flakes, snow goes perfect with this collection. To create my background I started applying white gesso on the paper, then I added   textures with the Winter Fun Stickable Stencil , Sugar Glitter Paste and white gesso. I couldn't capture the pretty sparkle of the glitter on the photo, but it looked so nice in person.

My title is the layered chipboard, I cut out the scissor from one of the papers.

I added Noteworthy die cut pieces from the same collection and  jewels to add a variety of textures

I used the Pentart 3D powder with the express glue to create the snow effect on my page. It gives a nice texture to the page and it was so easy and fun to make and I will show you how I did it...
