"Fly" Mixed Media Card featuring Craft O'Clock for Scrap & Craft



Welcome to my creative space!

I have a new project to share today featuring wonderful products from the Scrap & Craft Store featuring the Craft O'Clock ~ Morning Dreams II paper collection which has such gorgeous colors and fabulous images that can be fussy cut to embellish your projects. I've also used chipboard, stamps, and organza trim from the store.

Most of the cards I create are made with a special person in mind, but I do like to keep a few on hand for those unexpected special occasions. With this encouraging sentiment, it could be used for a birthday or really any kind of celebration or milestone event.

Tips and Techniques
I selected delicate Prima flowers to go with the soft colors on the gorgeous background paper and fussy cut flowers, then tucked in a single blossom from the Organza Rose Trim. I just adore this versatile trim that can be used in a strip or cut apart for individual flowers.

I treasure texture, so used Bambino Glue to adhere metal objects, Prills, diecut leafy flourishes, chunky glass glitter, rhinestones, and Finnabair Microbeads and Mica Flakes, around the cluster and across the page.  Do you have a stash of found items like I do? It's so lovely to tuck in an odd found item or two into mixed media projects for a unique touch. I brushed them with Finnabair's Sparks Paint and Art Alchemy Wax to fit in.

These fabulous Scrapiniec Steampunk Flying Hearts Chipboard Wings are heat embossed in pale gold, a perfect accent to the soft teal and pinks.

The background is stenciled with crackle paste, then spritzed with Lindy's Gang Tibetan Poppy Teal and Frozen Jack Frost Starburst mist. Once dry, white ink is spattered across for soft visual texture.

 
I combined the Agateria Grill 3 Stamp with a flourish stamp from my stash to edge the top and bottom of the card using permanent ink. I thought this sentiment was just perfect to go with the chipboard wings in the cluster.

"Shine Brightly" Shabby Mixed Media Card Featuring Studio75 Paper for Scrap & Craft

Welcome to my creative space!

I just adore playing with color, and this gorgeous teal green paper from the Studio75 Berry Copse 6x6" Paper Collection is a perfect backdrop for magenta and gold accents featuring chipboard and flowers from the Scrap & Craft Store.

 Tips and Techniques

I arranged the floral cluster around this gorgeous Craft Molly Zahia chipboard frame. I wanted a few white accents to add lightness to the card, so simply heat embossed the frame in white. I've used a couple flowers from the store including the delicate ivory rose tucked below the sentiment. 

I've also used 49 and Market, Prima, and Wild Orchid Crafts flowers from my stash in the cluster with Prima pearls tucked in along with a couple Finnabair Mechanical pieces rubbed with her Amethyst Magic Antique Brilliance Wax.

Prima Paper Clay was formed in the Prima Baroque mold then painted with Finnabair's Ginger Magic Sparks Paint and rubbed with her Amethyst Wax.

I colored a white Apple Blossom with color mist and paint to coordinate. Bambino Glue was brushed around the cluster to adhere Prima Finnabair Art Stones, Mini Art Stones and seed beads for texture.

Additional texture was created by mixing Finnabair Gold Mica Powder into her 3D Matte Gel to stencil onto the background. While wet, I sprinkled with Finnabair Gold Microbeads. Since gel medium can work as an adhesive the beads are well adhered to the card.

The Scrapiniec Confetti Hearts are so versatile! I added three layers of color before scattering them around the cluster. I started with a layer of teal embossing powder, followed by teal glitter embossing powder, then one edge is brushed with Finnabair's Gold Metallique Wax. 

I also added pearls, rhinestones, and Finnabair Mica Flakes from my stash adhered with Bambino Glue.

I backed the card front with a fabulous Studio75 15x15cm Blank Card. These white cards are super heavy and hold up the weight of all my embellishments perfectly.

The background is stamped randomly with a script stamp and edged with a leafy scrolled design from Blue Fern Studios, then spattered with white drawing ink. I've also tucked in leafy white die cuts.

Masculine Industrial Mixed Media Tag for Scrap & Craft

“Embrace the Journey” DIY Industrial Steampunk Home Decor Tag by Tracey Sabella for Scrap & Craft featuring Studio75 Paper: #studio75 #scrapiniec #agateria #mixedmedia #mixedmediatag #arttag #steampunk #industrialsteampunk #chipboard #Finnabair #Primamarketing #homedecor #timholtz #rust #rustart #lindysgang #lindysstampgang #rangerink #stampendous #spellbinders #helmar #scrapbookadhesivesby3l
Welcome to my creative space!

I enjoy getting grungy with masculine designs. This tag is a graduation gift for the son of a good friend. I just adore this senior portrait taken of him on a bridge with the industrial red beams. The Tim Holtz tag board is rather large at 6 1/2" wide by 12" high so is a great home decor piece featuring the Studio75 Cherry Blossom Collection as well as chipboardstamps, and brick stencil from the Scrap & Craft Store. A complete product list can be found below.

I wanted to bring in a grungy industrial feel to go with the gorgeous bridge in the photo so the gears in the Scrapiniec Flying Hearts Set were just perfect. This is one long strip of gears that I cut to frame the corner of the photo. The chipboard was heat embossed with Stampendous Aged Taupe enamel for an old metal feel. 

Around the tag edges, I stamped with the Grille and Grille 3 stamp with grey ink.

The Small Brick Stencil with Finnabair's Light Paste is a perfect accent on the background. It's spritzed with Lindy's Black Orchid Silver and Autumn Maple Crimson Starburst spray to highlight the texture. These colors were also used to add spatter texture. The dark paper behind the photo came from the 6x6" Studio75 Cherry Blossom Paper Set and was torn to size then inked with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink to tone down the bright white edges.

The circle piece was diecut from chipboard and enameled with more of the aged taupe powder. I found a roll of back plastic mesh at a flea market that's great for masculine pieces. I cut and brushed a couple bits with art wax to tuck under the photo.

The small stars are from the Scrapiniec Confetti Stars Set. There are just a ton of little stars in this set that can be used so many different ways to go with any project. Here I brushed them with Finnabair's Rust Effect Paste so they look like rusty metal.

I have a bag of rusty washers collected by my friend's husband who knows I adore rust. I just had to use them for their son's gift. At the bottom of the bag I noticed flakes and bits of rusty goodness. I brushed Bambino Glue around the washers and sprinkled the rusty bits into the glue for texture. The washer is topped with a barn star and gear. To make it look like the washer had rusted in place, I brushed some Rust Effect Paste around the washer and spritzed with water.

More rusty goodness. A piece of chunky silver chain from my stash was brushed with more rust effect paste to color.

The tag background is from the 12x12" Studio75 Cherry Blossom Paper Set. I traced and cut the paper then used soft matte get to adhere the paper to the tag. Rolling with a brayer made sure the paper was adhered securely. Once the gel was completely dry, the edges were lightly sanded then inked. 

The vintage key was still somewhat shiny, so I brushed it with Rust Effect Paste and placed it atop another of the fab rusty washers.

This cool gear came from the Artistiko Cogs Set made from HDF board. I just adore the fabulous gear shapes in this set. It was heat embossed with metallic bronze powder with just a hint of black mixed in.
