I’m back on the blog today sharing a couple of ATC’s I made featuring various small pieces of chipboard. It was my first ATC’s ever and if you have never tried it I can really recommend you do give them a go. They are loads of fun and super tiny so it’s a nice and quick little project you can easily finish if you only have a short time to create.
I started by cutting some kraft cardstock to 6 litte panels each measuring 2.5 x 3 inches. I then cut 6 panels of 7Dots Cotton Candy to measure 2 x 2.5 inches. Next I cut some chipboard just smaller than the paper to mat each piece of 7Dots paper to the Kraft Cardstock.
I randomly stamped each little panel using Archival Ink and added some molding paste through a stencil.
The next step was to create a little texture. The goal in ATC’S is to keep them fairly flat, however I always need a tiny bit of texture. I attempted to keep it to a minimum and to keep my embellishments to ones that doesn’t add too much bulk.
The following picture shows how each layer was added. First I added some griptape followed by paperstrips, a doily lace and washi tape.
Next I chose my chipboard pieces and painted them with acrylic paint.
Once the paint was dry I selected chipboards and positioned it onto the cards. I added some colour, micro beads and glitter to embellish the area around each piece of chipboard. Last but not least I added some phrases by Tim Holtz .
I hope you enjoyed this post and will be back soon to view more projects by my fellow design team members.
You know those times when you find yourself in a the woods and just feel like it is a magic place. Like and elf cold be peeking out behind a tree or a dragon would pass by in a short distance. Well I found such a place in my surroundings this summer. An old cave with a really interesting story. I used a picture from the entrance of the cave when crating this layout featuring the Enchanted Tree (mini), the Bearded Dragon and the Butterfly Wing Stencil.
I used the Butterfly Wing stencil, together with modeling paste, on both sides of my torn page. Then I used small strips of paper, leaves, buttons, doilies, lace, cheese cloth and pearls to build texture and dimension before adding my picture and the Scrap FX chipboards into place. Splatters of paint and sprayed on Glimmer Mist add extra interest.
Now to my second project today. I made a short tutorial on how to use Mists and one of the Scrap FX foam stamps to create a really cool framable print. Scrap FX has a wide range of quality foam stamps in the shop and I have used one of my top favorites for this project – the Doodled Feather Stamp.
1 – First you will need a set of mists. I have used 3 different Glimmer Mists from Tattered Angels. And then off course – a Scrap FX foam stamp.
2 – Use a brush to apply the mist on your stamp. Start with the lightest color and stamp it on a water color paper.
3 – Now proceed with your next color – I picked a bright blue. Apply with a brush, and stamp on the surface. To get a shadow effect, let the stamping overlap each other a bit.
4 – Now repeat the procedure with your darkest color. Again overlapping the two earlier stamped images.
5 – Now you can choose to make shadow around your images – I blended my mists with water and applied randomly. Then when dry splattered on the dark blue mist.
I have used these products from Scrap FX for my projects:

Hello there! It’s Riikka here with two totally different projects! Normally I try to make the projects I do for my second monthly post fit together some how, but this time it was impossible. I just needed to use the butterflies for a spring or summer page and I really wanted to use the gingerbread houses as well. So I did a layout celebrating the lightest part of the year in Finland and two cards to be used as Christmas cards!
Like I said, the layout is about summer and summer house. As the journaling stages, the cottage and summer somehow go together. We don’t spend that much time there as we are usually working while the kids spend a part of their summer there with my parents, but still it’s nice to visit it, go to sauna and see the fields moving to the breeze.
I chose to go with my favorite color scheme but added some light purple or pink to the mix as well. I started the layout by stenciling the geometric pattern to the background using the “Triangles” stencil. On top of that I stamped the plants using the “Blossom Stem” and the “Leafy Stem” stamps. After drying those I then stamped with embossing ink some of the smaller butterflies from the “Beautiful Butterfly” set and embossed those with turquoise embossing glitter.
Most of the chipboard shapes in the page are painted with white gesso – the big butterfy, the two swirls and the birds. Just the hearts differ, those I treated with Liquid Pearls.
