The sweet floral cluster includes Magnolia Flowers and an Ivory Mulberry Rose from the store along with a few Wild Orchid Crafts flowers from my stash. I tucked a few Prima Pearls into the empty spots.

The soft Organza Rose Trim is so lovely. Every girl loves some bling, so I added a sparkling rhinestone to the center of each blossom. 

The lovely Anemone Gaja Ornament chipboard is heat embossed with aged ivory embossing enamel, then the edges rubbed with Finnabair's Vintage Gold Wax. Don't be afraid to cut up your chippies. I snipped this one in half to extend out on each side of the cluster. The Scrapiniec Confetti Hearts include a ton of little hearts in three sizes. I heat embossed several in Raspberry and brushed with more of the gold wax.

Of course there needs to be a fluttering insect on any summery project. This Misz Masz Butterfly Chipboard Die Cut is embossed in aged ivory, then edged with raspberry and a touch of white gold wax over the body with a little rhinestone to add more bling.

The Violet Love background paper was dry brushed with white gesso, then stamped with two of the Agateria Grille stamps. I also added some spatter with Lindy's Gang Moonlit Mulberry Moon Shadow Mist and white drawing ink.

This delightful sentiment was cut from the 12 x12 Violet Love Paper Collection and edged with wisteria ink. The Anemone Fabian Chipboard Ornament is so perfect to anchor the sentiment. 

Bambino Glue is used to adhere texture elements from the Prills and Finnabair Microbeads around the flowers to the Confetti Hearts, mica shards, rhinestones, and sequins scattered around the card for texture.

"Dream of Being More" Mixed Media Graduation Card/Home Decor for Scrap & Craft

Summery Mixed Media Graduation Card/Home Decor by Tracey Sabella for Scrap & Craft: #studio75 #handmadecard #mixedmedia #mixedmediacard #shabbychic #shabbychiccard #papercrafting #flowercard #chipboard #lindysgang #lindysstampgang #Finnabair #Primamarketing #wildorchidcrafts #helmar #artanthology #usartquestprills #bluefernstudios  #agateria #scrapiniec #timholtz #rangerink
Welcome to my creative space!

Today I'm sharing a two in one shabby mixed media piece. It's an oversized mixed media graduation card, reinforced with an extra layer of 110lb cardstock so it can be placed on an easel to brighten up a mantel or desk. Rather than using a congratulations or graduation sentiment on the front, I stamped this inspirational sentiment that is perfect for a home decor piece as well as an encouragement to the graduate.

The sweet floral cluster includes Magnolia Flowers, and Pale Pink Mulberry Roses from the Scrap & Craft Store. The gorgeous background paper is from the Craft O'Clock ~ Morning Dreams II Paper Collection. I also fussy cut flower images from the collection to layer under the cluster. The background and borders are stamped with Grille and Grille 3 Stamps from the store. I added a touch of teal color with PanPastels around the edges as well.

Bambino Glue dries clear and is just perfect for adhering texture with Prills and microbeads along with sequins, half pearls, and flakes of teal mica scattered onto the background.

From this angle you can see Pearl Stamens from the store that I tucked in under the rosebuds. I just adore the chipboard from Scrapiniec's Doily Lace Corner Set that I heat embossed in teal, then topped with another layer of blue glittered embossing powder. 

I collect odds and ends to use in my paper crafting from a variety of different sources. The decorative crystal and pearl stick pin is for wedding decor. I also tucked in a couple seashells I found at the shore on one of our vacations as well as a few flowers from my stash. A while back I crocheted some sweet little flowers and came across them recently. I couldn't resist adding one at the edge of the paper flowers.

The sentiment is stamped with Versafine black ink onto watercolor paper. Once dry, I spritzed with water and brushed with M. Graham watercolors, then tore around the words to expose the creamy white paper edges. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Foam Squares are used to raise up the sentiment so it sits nicely over the twine wrapped around the card.

I used Finnabair's Light Molding Paste with the Studio75 Small Brick Stencil to add texture and when dry spritzed with Lindy's Gang Starburst Mist, then spattered with white ink.

I got artsy with these sweet summery dragonflies. They're stamped the dragonfly image from Prima's Stamp-N-Add Butterfly Wings Stamps onto watercolor paper, then colored with blue and teal watercolors. It was a bit of extra work to fussy cut them, but well worth the effort! I wanted something shimmery, so added teal seed beads to the long slender bodies with Bambino Glue.
