Floral Birthday Card and Tag Set with Heartfelt Creations Petunia VIDEO TUTORIAL featuring the May Scraps of Elegance Creativity Add Ons.

Floral Mixed Media Card/Tag Set by Tracey Sabella with Heartfelt Creations VIDEO TUTORIAL featuring the May 2017 Scraps of Elegance Creativity Add Ons.

Welcome to my creative space!

Do you enjoy creating handcrafted flowers? I simply adore them, so couldn't resist trying out the Heartfelt Creations Petunias in the Creativity and Creativity2 Add Ons. I really appreciate that Melinda does such a great job including supplies in her kits that I will be using for years to come on my projects.

I have several hanging baskets of petunias on our front deck that I enjoy every day as I look out my kitchen window. There is one variety that is particularly appealing to me. I don't know what they are called, but they are a gorgeous fuchsia with yellow/green centers. 
 
I used them as inspiration to color the flowers.

"Mediterranean Dream" Mixed Media Card for ScrapBerry's

Mediterranean Dream Mixed Media Card by Tracey Sabella for ScrapBerry's: Summer

Welcome to my creative space!

Close-ups
 Mediterranean Dream Mixed Media Card by Tracey Sabella for ScrapBerry's: Summer 
 I've used two sheets of the gorgeous Mediterranean Dreams 6x6 Paper Collection for the card base and border. The Borders page had a strip that included the lovely blue flowers that I fussy cut and tucked into the cluster. I added Prills to the flower centers for added texture. The dream sentiment is cut from the Cards 1 page and placed it on a chipboard element to pop it up and create a focal point.

Mediterranean Dream Mixed Media Card by Tracey Sabella for ScrapBerry's: Summer 
Don't you simply adore texture? To color the molding paste, I rubbed Blue Stains Ink onto a craft mat and mixed it into the paste to create a perfectly colored paste to coordinate with the card colors. I used a stencil with a circular design to place this beautiful ScrapBerry's Floral Embroidery Crystal Sticker as well as a few clear domes from my stash. I've also scattered some Prills and chunky glitter for added texture.

The beautiful metal Rosebud Charm and Fairy Tale Resin Flower are painted with gesso, then colored with Blue Stains Ink.

To soften, I've dry brushed gesso lightly across the background as well as over the flowers and leaves.

Steampunk Father's Day Card for ScrapBerry's



Welcome to my creative space!

Father's Day is just around the corner and my husband has always been such a wonderful dad! To celebrate this special day, I've created a steampunk themed card for him featuring ScrapBerry's Words Live Forever Collection. I just adore the opportunity to create masculine projects like this!

Please don't forget!
ScrapBerry's is hosting a family themed challenge during May and June.
Be sure to stop by the ScrapBerry's blog for all the challenge details
and inspiration by the talented design team HERE.

FTC Disclosure: I am currently working as a freelance designer for ScrapBerry's. While I am compensated in product, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of these products and will not recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.

Tips and Techniques 
I hand cut this fabulous stopwatch from the Words Live Together Stopwatches page and popped it up with foam tape to tuck the ScrapBerry's Silver Set of Wings coming out from under each side. I topped it with a chipboard gear from my stash that I heat embossed with dark gold embossing powder and metal clock hands. 

I used the ScrapBerry's Butterflies Wings Clear Stamps to accent around the paper edge for a grungy border. To add texture I adhered silver chunky glass glitter and Prills below the clock.

 
This paper is perfect for a masculine card. The Holiday Romance Chipboard Elements No. 3 collection includes this fabulous arrow. It's so quick and easy to give chipboard a metallic look by heat setting with gold or silver embossing powder.

The grungy background is created by stenciling a grid design with Black Lava Gel Medium. For a subtle touch, I used grey ink to stencil clock designs onto the background paper as well. 

 ScrapBerry’s Supply List:
Words Live Forever Collection ~ Stopwatches (SCB220609308)
Words Live Forever ~ 6x6 Paper Collection (SCB220609310X)

"Precious Moments" Mixed Media Layout and Process VIDEO TUTORIAL with the April Scraps of Elegance Kit



Welcome to my creative space!

Today I'm sharing another project and process video tutorial from the gorgeous April Scraps of Elegance "A Song Of Spring" Kit. I took this sweet photo of our little granddaughter's feet when she was a week old. I did a little Photoshop work by converting the photo to black and white emphasizing these darling feet by leaving them in color. The gorgeous paper and elements in this kit couldn't be more perfect to create a shabby mixed media layout for this precious photo. 

I just adore including handcrafted touches on my projects, so used the leaf image from the 49 and Market Gabi's 49 Texture Stamp Set from the Scraps of Darkenss Store along with the Sage Spectrum Noir Sparkle Marker from the Creativity Add On to create watercolor leaves to tuck into my flower cluster. All the details are in the video.

FTC Disclosure: I am currently working as a freelance designer for Scraps of Elegance. While I am compensated in product, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of these products and will not recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.

In this process video tutorial learn how to:
 ~ Create handcrafted watercolor leaves
~ Prepare your background paper for mixed media with clear gesso
~ Create texture with stencils and modeling paste
~ Add texture to acrylic layered flowers with Prills
~ Add texture with glitter shards and Prills

Enjoy!

New Mom Shabby Mixed Media Card for ScrapBerry's


Welcome to my creative space!

Our son and his beautiful wife, Rachel, gave birth to our first grandchild earlier this year. I created this card to celebrate her very first Mothers Day featuring ScrapBerry's beautiful Mother's Treasure Collection. I can just imagine sweet Avery playing dress up with her doll in a few short years like the girl on the card. Even though Mothers Day is just past, this sweet card would also work as a baby shower card or to celebrate a birthday or other special event for a little girl.

Please don't forget!
ScrapBerry's is hosting a family themed challenge during May and June.
Be sure to stop by the ScrapBerry's blog for all the challenge details HERE.

FTC Disclosure: I am currently working as a freelance designer for ScrapBerry's. While I am compensated in product, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of these products and will not recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.

Tips and Techniques
 
The gorgeous focal flower is a ScrapBerry's Light Pink Gardenia. I've surrounded it with smaller roses from my stash and leaves die cut from scraps of paper then rubbed with green ink to color.

Every card needs a little bling, so I cut up a piece of the ScrapBerry's Wedding 1 Curls set to tuck in around the cluster. I've layered the flowers over a twine bow and a doily inked for a vintage look.

The paper layers are distressed with the edge of a scissors blade, then inked to give a vintage feel. I stenciled diagonally across the card for a touch of soft texture and added a few splashes of white ink.

I hope you've been inspired to pull out your ScrapBerry's products
and find a few moments to create something special.

"Welcome Baby" Mixed Media Layout and Technique VIDEO TUTORIAL with the March Scraps of Elegance Kit



Welcome to my creative space. Our little granddaughter is nearly 3 months old now and just as sweet as can be. I had this photo from her baby shower on my work table the day she was born. It turned out that her newborn photo worked perfectly on the page I had planned out. So now I'm back with a new layout that really works better for this darling photo, a close up of the booties on her shower cake. The pink pairs so beautifully with the browns in the ScrapBerry's Photo Archive Collection papers in the Coordinating Paper Add On. I've also used embellishments and flowers from the Main Kit and Add Ons, as well as items from the Scraps of Elegance Store. You can find a complete product list at the bottom of this post.

FTC Disclosure: I am currently working as a freelance designer for Scraps of Elegance. While I am compensated in product, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of these products and will not recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.

I have a technique video tutorial for you today showing you how to create the Honey Glittered Butterfly embellishments in the top left corner of my layout featuring the fabulous Faber-Castell Honey Resin Kit included in the March Scraps of Elegance Creativity Add On. 

Enjoy!

Tips and Techniques

Here's a close-up of the Honey Glittered Butterflies.


Such gorgeous flowers are included in the kit and add ons to create clusters around the photo. I softened the color of the paper flowers by dry brushing with gesso. I've also tucked in some beautiful Graphic 45 chipboard and cardstock stickers as well as a crystal stick pin from the Main Kit.


Another flower cluster shot. I added a couple wooden hearts from my stash that I enameled with embossing powder.


This gorgeous Blue Fern Studios Chipboard from a previous kit is also heat set with embossing powder. That's a quick and easy way to create an elegant finish on chipboard pieces. I've used Dina Wakley Gel Medium from the store to adhere Prills and microbeads across the page. The You're Invited sentiment from the cardstock stickers sheet was just perfect for this baby shower layout.


I didn't need to do a thing to this gorgeous steampunk butterfly from the store. I stamped a couple hearts and colored them using the Prima Peony Color Philosophy Ink as a watercolor wash.
