Mixed Media Woodouts Heart for Studio75

Welcome to my creative space!

Today I'm sharing a lovely DIY home decor heart featuring the gorgeous Hello Spring Collection on a fabulous Woodouts heart base. This collection has such beautiful colors and amazing images to fussy cut.

I just adore adding a touch of steampunk to my soft, feminine projects, and this Metal Key from the store is so perfect here. Be sure to check out my tips and techniques below to see how I altered the key to coordinate so beautifully.

I used Finnabair Soft Matte Gel to adhere Hello Spring 01 paper to this sweet Woodouts Heart. I often have areas that bubble or don't adhere well when applying paper to hard surfaces this way. I thought of the idea to brush the front and back of the paper with clear gesso first. It really helped the paper to go on much more smoothly. I cut a piece of paper a little larger than the heart, brushed both sides with Finnabair Clear Gesso and allowed to dry completely. Once dry I brushed both the back side of the paper and the front of the Woodouts Heart with soft gel medium and placed the two coated sides together. To make sure the paper was securely attached, I placed a piece of computer paper over the paper covered heart (to prevent transferring any bits of leftover paint from the brayer onto my beautiful paper), then rolled firmly over the entire surface with a brayer. I let it sit overnight for the gel medium to dry completely, then trimmed closely with a craft knife. Finally I sanded the edges to get a nice smooth finish.

I applied Finnabair Pearl Icing Paste using the SnipArt Up In the Air Damask Stencil. Isn't this such a gorgeous design? I also spattered white drawing ink over the paper.

To build the cluster I layered vintage lace, then chipboard and gorgeous Little Birdie Crafts flowers. I cut fabulous flowers and leaves from Hello Spring 06 and Hello Spring 07 and layered them into the edges of the cluster.

The Tim Holtz Quote Chips sentiment is rubbed with Distress Ink to coordinate with the gorgeous lavender in the fussy cut flowers.

The delicate Anemone Dahlia Frame is heat embossed with Stampendous Aged Scarlet embossing enamel, then to soften the color, I rubbed with Finnabair Metallic Wax in several colors including rose gold, vintage gold, white gold, and rose.

This Mitfomr metal key is rubbed with rose gold and vintage gold to give it a lighter and more feminine feel. I also added a sparkling gem to the center and several more around the heart.

Bambino Glue is used to apply lavender and pearl Prills for added texture. It dries clear and is perfect for adding delicate texture materials.

"Journey" Masculine Steampunk Card for Studio75

"Journey" Card by Tracey Sabella for Studio75: #studio75 #littlebirdiecrafts #littlebirdieonline #lindysgang #stampendous #mixedmediacard #mixedmedia #patina #steampunk #finnabair #primamarketing #helmar #prills #7gypsies #diycard #diycards #handmadecard #handmadecards #handcraftedcard #handcraftedcards #stencil #chipboard
Welcome to my creative space!

I'm up on the Studio75 blog with a masculine card created for my dad who had a birthday in June. I've featured the fabulous Cherry Blossom collection that includes some great grungy designs that are perfect for masculine projects. I've also used wonderful chipboard pieces from the Studio75 store HERE

I enjoy putting personal touches on the cards I create. My dad served in the photomapping division of the Air Force, so the wings are a perfect element. He is also an amateur radio operator enjoying a nickname based on his call letters that includes King George, so I couldn't resist including the crown brad.

The background is prepared by stamping the edges randomly with the Agateria Grill 3 stamp using permanent ink. Next a circle design is stenciled with black distress oxide ink, using the Coptic Impressions stencil and spritzed with Lindy's Gang Tainted Love Teal. I just adore the grungy effect!

This Scrapiniec Chained Wings Chipboard piece is painted with Little Birdie Crafts Tinted Metallic Paint in teal, gold, and silver then rubbed with several colors of Finnabar metallic wax to give a shimmery metallic finish. I've also added tiny metal cogs for dimension.

The Journey sentiment is a metal piece from my stash. I've heat embossed Artistiko Cogs with aged silver embossing enamel and rubbed with Finnabair Peacock Metallic Wax. The title fits perfectly across the two cogs.

"Follow Your Heart" Mixed Media Card for Studio75

Welcome to my creative space!

I have a new project for Studio75 to share with you today. I've created a mixed media card featuring the gorgeous Lavender Morning and Violet Love Paper collections along with lovely chipboard, stamps, trim and a stencil from the Studio75 store. The gorgeous flowers are from Little Birdie Crafts available at A.C. Moore. I adore the beautiful images included in the Lavender Morning papers that I fussy cut to use along with the dimensional flowers to embellish the card. These images along with the moss give a beautiful organic feel to the card.

I like to have a variety of cards ready to use for a variety of occasions. This card could be used for nearly any event from anniversaries to graduations or even a birthday.

Tips and Techniques

I painted a Nest Frame and Confetti Hearts with Finnabair Iris Potion Sparks Paint to perfectly coordinate and arranged gorgeous Little Birdie Crafts flowers available at A.C. Moore along with a rosette cut from Organza Rose Trim and natural moss to created a focal cluster. The moss is adhered with Bambino Glue. I also fussy cut flowers and leaves from the Lavender Morning paper set to tuck in around the cluster. Aren't they gorgeous images?

The green background paper is cut from the Lavender Morning 01 sheet to 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches and backed with a paper from the Violet Love 6x6 paper set in a lavender print to frame the card. The edges of the green paper are distressed using the edge of my scissors.

The background is stamped with an Agateria Grille Stamp in permanent grey ink, then stenciled with a Studio75 Brick Stencil using Finnabairs Limestone Stone Effect Paste. I dry brushed lightly with white gesso to highlight the texture, then spattered with Lindy's Gang Tibetan Poppy Teal Starburst  color mist and white ink. 

A Tim Holtz Small Talk sentiment sticker is colored with coordinating ink. I thought this was a perfect sentiment to go with the Scrapiniec chipboard Confetti Hearts cascading across the card.

Mixed Media Birthday Card with a 7 theme for the Studio75 June Challege

Mixed Media Birthday Day Card by Tracey Sabella for Studio75: #traceysabella #studio75 #scrapiniec #littlebirdiecrafts #littlebirdiecraftsflowers #prills #finnabair #agateria #cadence #helmar #artanthology #mixedmedia #shabbychic #mixedmediaart #mixedmediacard #mixedmediacards #shabbychiccard #shabbychiccards #diycard #diycards #handcraftedcard #handcraftedcards #diycrafts #handmadecard #handmadecards #birthday #birdthdaycard #birthdaycards #diybirthdaycard
Welcome to my creative space!

It's time for a new challenge at Studio75. This month is special because Studio75 celebrates its seventh Birthday! We invite you to celebrate together and create a birthday project (the number 7 is optional). 


You can find the challenge details and enter your project HERE.

I have created a birthday card with the beautiful Forever in Love collection along with chipboard from the Studio75 Store. I have also used gorgeous Little Birdie Crafts flowers to embellish. Although this card is not for a 7th birthday, I have incorporated the 7 theme by using 7 flowers, 7 chipboard hearts, and by stamping loads of images onto the background that include the numeral 7.

Tips and Techniques

The gorgeous Scrapiniec chipboard Doily Frame and Confetti Hearts are painted with Cadence Antique Bronze Paint mixed with some Little Birdie Golden Glaze Metallic paint to lighten it up just a bit. I just gave the paint a quick stir so that there would be variations in the paint going from light to a little darker to add visual interest. 

The background stamping is 3rd generation in order to keep it light. (I inked up my stamp and stamped twice on a scrap of paper before stamping on the background.) If you look closely, you will see the numeral 7 repeated in the stamping. I've also used an Agateria Grille 3 stamp to create a border around the edges.

I've arranged 7 gorgeous Little Birdie Crafts flowers to create this beautiful cluster in the center of the chipboard frame, and there are 7 hearts floating across the background as well.

Prills and Finnabair Microbeads are adhered with Bambino Glue to add lovely texture.

The birthday sentiment is cut from the Cutting Accessories 01 page. After stamping, I stenciled the background with Finnabair's Frosty Pearl Icing Paste through the Diamond Grunge Art Anthology Stencil.

One of Finnabair's Mechanicals butterflies, which goes so well with the rest of the card! The card front has been adhered to one of the fabulous Blank Cards from the Studio75 store. These card bases are super heavy duty and stand up well to the weight of my mixed media designs.

"All Things Are Possible" Altered Mixed Media Tin for Little Birdie Crafts

DIY Altered Mixed Media Tin by Tracey Sabella for Little Birdie Crafts:  #traceysabella #littlebirdiecrafts #littlebirdieonline #littlebirdieflowers #diy #diyhomedecor #altered #alteredtin #mixedmedia #chipboard #heatembossing #diy #diyhomedecor #handcrafted #handmade
Welcome to my creative space!

This is my second post today. If you haven't seen the mixed media altered heart I created as a guest designer for the June Mixed Media Academy Challenge, you can view it HERE.

I'm up on the Little Birdie Crafts blog today with this altered mixed media tin featuring flowers and fussy cut images from the gorgeous Woodland Stories Collection.

I adore creating DIY altered projects. This little tin once held CD covers. As I was cleaning out a desk a few weeks ago I rediscovered it and knew immediately that it would be perfect to turn into a beautiful home decor piece. It is the perfect size to hold doily die cuts, so it has found a place in my art studio. 

To see how I altered this tin, please hop on over to the Little Birdie Crafts blog HERE where I have a full photo tutorial. I hope you'll leave some love while you're there.
