by Deb Adams | Comments Off on HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY CARDS

Hi There

Today I am sharing some Birthday Cards to brighten up your Winter’s Day.

They feature Scrap FX stamps, stencils, embellishments & transparencies.

The background papers of all these cards were created using my gel press plate & Dina Wakley acrylic paints.

Stamps used were the Star BorderCircle Marks Squared Stamp.   Stencils used were the Polygonic & Puddles.

All the Birthday Sentiments are from the Birthday Transparency sheet  or the Happy Birthday Vellum sheet.

The clouds are heat embossed with Seafoam white powder from Ranger using the Clouds a Happy Stamp.

The flowers are fussy cut after using the Create a Unicorn Stencil & Distress oxide inks.

Embellishments on these cards are highlighted by heat embossing & with White Posca pen used for doodling.

 Number crunch stamp white heat embossed used as an embellishment.
Balloon Words chipboard embellishments are given texture by heat embossing.

Hope you are inspired to make some bright & funky cards too.

Cheers Deb

Mixed media layout Happy Birthday by Lisa

Hi friends!

today I want to show you this mixed media layout, created on a canvas cardboard, in black and white colors with a touch of gold…..I’m in love with this combo!

To start I cutted a piece of scrapbook paper and glued on my canvas cardboard. I brushed clear gesso on all the paper, and then a light coat of white gesso.

Then I made some Harlequin stamps with archival black ink and stencils with white texture paste.

I let it dry and then I colored the background with some mists

I glued my photo and embellishments on multiple layers

On Scrap Fx chipboards I used versamark pad and embossing powder

Here some close ups photos of my layout

In this project I used these Scrap Fx products:

Hi everyone . . . today I am sharing 2 new scrapbook layouts!   I really enjoyed making them using the newest Scrap FX embellishments that are all about celebrating this month!

First, I am sharing a layout that I made using a photo of my daughters, Katie and Anne, taken on Mother’s Day, 2017:

Here is my page, entitled “Sisters,”  which is about celebrating Mother’s Day:

For my background, I used the flower bud stencil, some texture paste, and mists:

And did I tell you how much I love Scrap FX chipboard pieces?  The designs are intricate and fabulous and I find them perfect for my scrapbook pages!  For this page,  I embossed these chipboard pieces with white and  turquoise embossing powder then added some glitter.

Here are the pieces I used:

And here is my completed layout entitled “Party Time!”

I used the following Scrap FX chipboard pieces embossed with cream and apricot embossing powder:

I used Cakes Foam Stamps – I stamped them on vellum and embossed the images with white embossing powder, then cut them out and inserted them onto my page at various places:

Mixed Media Mini Book by Heike´s AugenBlick

by Heike Bruhn | 1 Comment

Hello, hello, hello…

I am back from my vacation in France,

what a fantastic and beautiful country.

But anyway,

I did for my dt member work another mixed media mini book

with lots of stamps and stencil work. For my embellishments

I used chipboards and transparency.

Let´s start.

Happy Birthday…..

My color choice for this book was: Old Holland acrylics in red, blue, black, white and gold.

The ribbon is a piece from my grandmothers tablecloth.

Unfortunately, the tablecloth has so much dirty spots which I cannot get cleaned. But that beautiful fabric in the memory of my grandmother was reason enough to keep it for my art work!!

I cut it in strips for my mixed media work and voila I have a piece of memory art work!

I started with a black paper sheet 30 cm x 40 cm.

Then I scored  horizontally on 15 cm

and I scored  vertically on 10 cm, 20 cm and 30cm.

After that I cut out a piece of paper on the top, exactly from the 10 cm score line to the 30 cm score line.

My next step was collage-work with old vintage paper.

Okay, after my collage-work was done and  completely dried, I started with a layer of clear Gesso.

After that I added a layer of white paint with the palette knife.

Now my favorite part: stencil and stamp work…YAH!!

My next step was another palette knife work with black, blue and red color.

Finally it is time for embellishing with transparency, photos and chipboards.

Mark making with Posca pen and pencils.

On the left site the mandala transparency over the number crunch stamp.

My circle party chipboard as window for the girl photo images and the Happy Birthday vellum.

On the left site I have a red color phototransfer. Can you see it?

I am so in love with the flower bud stencil..

After two days of my background work I thought about it: I miss something else.

So I have attached a piece of vellum-paper 10 cm x 30 cm on the left and right site.

I glued  photos on the vellum-paper also I did a little bit stitching work and words as embellishments.

The photos are from Tim Holtz and Finnabair.

Here you can see, which part was cut out from the black background paper.

I used from ScrapFx:

Mandala stamp

Chicken Wire Stamp

Number Crunch stamps

Chevron Panel stamp

Square collage stamps

Circle collage stamps

Circles & Squares stamp

Art Deco Panel stamp

Flower Buds stencil

Art Phrases transparency

Art Words transparency

Bookprint transparency

Mandala transparency

Circle – Party

2019 Year Pack

Happy Birthday BLUE

So my dear blog readers,

this was my dt member work for June.

I see you in July.

Until then…

xoxo

Magical Birthday by Niamh

by Niamh Baly | Comments Off on Magical Birthday by Niamh

Hi All,

I am still playing with the June release of the Birthday themed products, which has come in extremely handy when scrapping for a little girls third Birthday!  This 12 x 12 layout took no time at all to create, and the chipboard elements add to the magical feel of the page.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I decided that the page needed some black to balance the bold primary colours of the scrapbooking paper, so I heat embossed all the chipboard with black embossing powder. To highlight the magical, unicorn nature of such an important 3rd birthday, I also added shredded iridescent glitter to the embossing powder while it was still warm. This gave a beautiful effect and just the right amount of sparkle! I was also very lucky with he outline stars, and the were the perfect size to frame the stars on the scrapbook paper to begin with. I used both the frames and the inside stars, so nothing went to waste.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To see how this page came together, please click on the process video below:

 

Here are the products used on this layout:

 

 

 

 

Happy creating,

Paint Long and Prosper & Mixed Media stand by Ros Aggett-Madley

by Ros Madley | Comments Off on Paint Long and Prosper & Mixed Media stand by Ros Aggett-Madley

Hi, thank you for joining me again this month.  Today I’m sharing a simple art journal page and and little off the page project.

After painting my background, I have adhered some Bookprint Transparency to my background.  I just cut random pieces of this and used matte medium to stick it down in 3 places to form a visual triangle.

I’ve then taken one of my scrap pages that I started a background on a while ago that I wasn’t happy with.  I think I’ve said before that I always keep these to re purpose them for future projects.   I’ve used a sponge and black paint with the Flower Buds Stencil and once cut, used these to make the bodies/dresses of my Queens.

For my title I have cut a strip from the Art Words Transparency and painted behind this with a posca pen.

Flower Buds stencil  Bookprint transparency  Art Words transparency

My next project began with a desk stand that my friend Deena Otway gave a few of us at a retreat a couple of years ago.  I finally got around to painting it and love how it’s turned out.

After giving it a couple of coats of chalk paint I have used the Paint Brushes Stencil and black paint on the ends of the stand.  I then coloured each brush with paint pens and went over the top of this with the stencil again to neaten the finish.

I added a paintbrush to the front and also the word Create from the Create with Passion Stencil.

I love it so much that I’m going to make a permanent spot on my desk for it.

Hope you’ve been inspired.
