Frosty Wintry Mixed Media Card for Studio75

Welcome to my creative space!

I have created a frosty winter card to share with you featuring Studio75's gorgeous Peony Avenue Collection. I drew inspiration from the polar vortex we experienced here in January with sparkling ice crystals and white snow banks reflecting frosty blue skies.

Tips and Techniques

This blue paper from The Peony Avenue 6x6" paper set is a perfect backdrop for this wintry card.

I clustered Little Birdie Crafts crafts flowers from  A.C. Moore. The diecut leaves were dabbed with Finnabair's Snowflake paste and while wet sprinkled with silver glitter.

The shimmering chipboard wing is from the Scrapiniec Steampunk Flying Hearts Set of Wings found in the Studio75 Store. It is brushed with Finnabair's Magical Pond Sparks Paint and while still wet sprinkled with more of the silver glitter that was used on the leaves.

The round frame was brushed with white gesso then a layer of Finnabair's White Crackle Paste before spritzing with Heidi Swapp Ocean Color Shine, drying well between each layer. I have found that the crackle paste mediums that I have tried get more cracks when allowed to air dry rather than drying with a heat tool.

Bambino Glue from the Studio75 Store is dries perfectly clear and matte, so works perfectly to adhere the Prill and microbead bling around the cluster.

This chipboard snowflake has the same media applied to it as the round frame. I received these sweet snowflakes as a gift with a recent order from Joggles.com. 

On the card base I brushed the center portions with white gesso, then stenciled with Finnabair's Frosty pearl and Mystic Turquoise Icing Pastes swirled together using her Wild Berries Stencil.

I applied Frosty Pearl Icing Paste to Scrapiniec Confetti Stars from the Studio75 Store using a palette knife to swirl the paste for a textured effect, and once dry, rubbed lightly with Finnabair's Old Silver wax to highlight the texture.

I just adore these little chipboard stars that come in three different sizes. A perfect way to add another bit of texture to any project.

"You Are in My Heart" Altered Heart for Studio75 DT for February Challenge

"You Are in My Heart" Altered Mixed Media Box by Tracey Sabella for Studio75 February 2019 Challenge #studio75 #littlebirdiecrafts #49andmarket 49andmarketflowers #finnabair #finnabairproducts #primamarketing #prills #thecraftersworkshopstencils #helmar #thermoweb #mixedmedia #mixedmediaart #mixedmediabox #alteredbox #mixedmediaartist #shabbychic #shabby #shabbychiclover #shabbychicbox #papercrafting #chipboard #altered #homedecor #handcrafted #handmade ⠀

Welcome to my creative space!!

It's time for the first Studio75 challenge of 2019.


The theme:
Make any box, in any technique. The box, you will fill with love.

For challenge details and to enter stop by the Studio75 Challenge blog post HERE.

I adore altering trinket boxes and this oval paper maché box is covered with paper from the gorgeous Studio75 Violet Love Collection

Tips and Techniques

In addition to covering the box with Violet Love paper, I fussy cut the sweet flowers and leaves from one of the add on papers as well as the "You are in my heart" sentiment strip. The filigree heart tucked in is an Anemone Fantiazja Corner Chipboard piece topped with Ranger Pale Gold embossing powder. 

The top of the lid is stenciled using Mini Many Textures TCW Stencil with Finnabair's Rose Gold Icing Paste. More icing paste is stenciled around the sentiment using the Mini Well Rounded and Mini Texturized TCW Stencils. A touch of lace is adhered around the top of the lid with Bambino Glue.

*****Tip*****
When covering a box with paper, make sure the lid fits loosely, or one you add the paper, you may not get the lid to fit back on over the layer of added paper. If the lid fits tight, you could cover to box just to the edge of the lid.

The sweet pale pink roses are from the Studio75 store and the other flowers are from Little Birdie Crafts and 49 and Market. I also tucked in a couple metal leaves I found in the jewelry department of my local craft store. The floral heart is one I've had in my stash for several years. I gave it new life by painting it with white gesso and then rubbing with Finnabair's Rose Gold Metallique Wax. Finally, there's a bit of texture with Prills and Finnabair's Microbeads adhered with Bambino Glue

"Be True" Mixed Media Valentine Wall Hanging for Studio75

Welcome to my creative space!

Valentine's Day is just around the corner. I created this sweet wall hanging with the holiday in mind. Here in the US we have candy conversation hearts with fun sentiments like "Be Mine." I thought this "Be True" sentiment was perfect for love themed decor and the gorgeous Violet Love Collection paper has perfectly romantic colors.

Tips and Techniques

Do you remember the BoBunny shaped chipboard mini albums? I have some odds and ends pieces from those books and used one as the base for my wall hanging. I traced around the chipboard shape onto the gorgeous Violet Love paper, then cut it out. Soft get medium was brushed on both the chipboard and the back of the paper to adhere. Once dry, I lightly sanded the edges to blend the paper nicely on the chipboard. 

I clustered lovely 49 and Market flowers over a butterfly chipboard frame that I heat embossed, then tucked in Artistico Cogs from the Studio75 Store. The cogs are rubbed with Finnabair's Vintage Gold and Amethyst Magic waxes to color and give a metallic sheen.

Here's a close-up shot of the gorgeous textures. The background is stenciled using Finnabair's White Crackle paste and allowed to sit overnight to dry and crack. I have found that most crackle mediums work best when allowed to air dry. Once dry, I misted lightly with Lindy's Jazy Jivin' Purple mist and water to fill in and highlight the cracks.

I used fabulous Bambino Glue to adhere bits of lace along withFinnabair's Art Stones and microbeads for texture. Since it dries matte, it's perfect to apply mixed media texture products. The edges are rubbed with the same waxes.

A nice way to add texture is to wrap randomly with twine. 

I misted the white flowers with water then brushed a little bit of Lindy's spray to the centers. I also lightly brushed a little color onto the sentiment chip.

Dreamy Shabby Mixed Media Card Featuring Violet Love

"Own Your Dreams" Mixed Media Card by Tracey Sabella for Studio75 #studio75 #mixedmedia #mixedmediacard #shabbymixedmedia #shabbychic #shabbychiccard #finnabair #primamarketing #49andmarket #timholtz #thecraftersworkshop #helmar 
Welcome to my creative space.

I am so delighted to be part of the 2019 Studio75 Design Team
alongside these talented artists.


I simply adore working with Studio75 products.
Today I'm sharing my first DT project with you.

The gorgeous Violet Love Paper Collection is perfect for this romantic, dreamy card. There are hints of golden yellow in the paper so I accented with beautiful flowers and embellishments in this color.

Tips and Techniques

One of the gorgeous Violet 6x6" papers is the base for my card.

I like to have cards on hand for special events and with this "own your dream" sentiment, it would be perfect for a variety of events from a birthday, to graduation, or even a job promotion.

The Violet Love 07 page from the 12 x12" collection includes the gorgeous leaves and doily which I fussy cut to tuck under and around the cluster which includes lovely 49 and Market Flowers, pearls, Anemone chipboard flourishes, and metal embellishments from my stash.

Bambino glue dries matte and perfectly clear, so is perfect to adhere bling like these Prills and Finnabair Microbeads.

The beautiful paper has hints of warm golden yellow, so I edged the base with gold pastel color and before adhering the embellishments, I spattered the background with white drawing ink.

Here you can see more of the texture details and the chipboard was painted with Finnabair Sparks paint for shimmery finish.

The background is stenciled with Finnabair Light Paste using a bubble wrap stencil, and while the molding paste was still wet, I sprinkled it with super fine glitter to add some lovely sparkle.  Once dry, I spritzed with Lindy's Jazzy Jivin' Purple color mist and water to settle into the crevices and highlight the texture.

The Misz Masz chipboard butterfly is painted with more Sparks paints.

The embellished card front is adhered to a Studio75 6x6" Heavy Weight Card which is nice and sturdy to hold the heavy embellishments.

Enjoy the Journey Masculine Mixed Media Card

"Enjoy the Journey Card by Tracey Sabella #mixedmediacard #mixedmedia #rust #steampunk #finnabair #primamarketing #49andmarket #timholtz #helmar #scrapbookadhesivesby3L

Welcome back to my creative space.

I've been busy traveling to India and with Christmas activities, so it has been a couple months since I've posted a project. 

I had an amazing time teaching Master Classes for Itsy Bitsy's Creativity Carnival in December. Rashmi and Harish have a wonderful company with quality products. I simply adored working with their gorgeous Little Birdie Crafts products to create projects for my classes. 

The Creativity Carnival was fabulous. The open air venue was gorgeous and the event attracted 20,000 people for the two day event. An amazing feat for the first ever Carnival celebrating 10 years since they opened their first Itsy Bitsy Craft Store.

Since my trip, I've been busy with Christmas activities and planning a baby shower for our daughter, Elizabeth, who is expecting their first child. Dominic is due to arrive in March. We are so excited for the birth of our first grandson who will be joining our sweet granddaughter, Avery, who will be two in February. (Our son and beautiful daughter-in-law's girl.)

I created a quick card last week that I wanted to share with you. A young man we know is moving out of state and his friends had a going away party for him. I snuck in some time one morning to create a quick card for him. I grabbed my 49 and Market Vintage Artistry 6x6" Paper Pack, loads of Prima Finnabair products and embellishments, and some flea market finds to create the card. I hope you like it.

Tips and Techniques
"Enjoy the Journey Card by Tracey Sabella #mixedmediacard #mixedmedia #rust #steampunk #finnabair #primamarketing #49andmarket #timholtz #helmar #scrapbookadhesivesby3L
I just adore creating masculine cards and wanted to keep with a color palette that a guy would enjoy. Finnabair's rust pastes added just the right color with the metal gears and embellishments. I also added some Turquoise Rust Effects Paste from the Northern Lights Set for a patina effect. The rust pastes are primarily used on the molded wings which I brushed with black gesso first. I used the rust pastes directly on the metal elements. While the paste was still wet, I misted it with water so it would flow down onto the background paper and look like the elements had rusted in place. I just adore this effect. Once dry, I lightly rubbed the wings and steampunk blade piece with Aged Brass Metallique Wax to highlight the texture.

I added some water to the stencil brush I used for the rust paste and added a bit of color around the edges of the paper.

"Enjoy the Journey Card by Tracey Sabella #mixedmediacard #mixedmedia #rust #steampunk #finnabair #primamarketing #49andmarket #timholtz #helmar #scrapbookadhesivesby3L
The background paper was brushed with clear gesso to help reduce warping, then stenciled with Finnabair's gorgeous Manuscript Stencil using her White Gold Icing Paste. I just bought the Icing Pastes and this is the first time I have had a chance to work with these luscious, shimmery pastes. They are so rich and creamy, a real delight to create with. 

I used a soft brush to add just a little Aged Brass Wax to the light bulb so it looks like it is glowing.

"Enjoy the Journey Card by Tracey Sabella #mixedmediacard #mixedmedia #rust #steampunk #finnabair #primamarketing #49andmarket #timholtz #helmar #scrapbookadhesivesby3L
Black microbeads are added for grungy texture. I thought this Quote Chip from Tim Holtz was just perfect for the occasion. I added some of the watered down rust pastes to color.

"Don't Forget to Fly" Shabby Mixed Media Card for Scrap & Craft

"Don't Forget to Fly" Shabby Mixed Media Card by Tracey Sabella for Scrap & Craft: #studio75 #snipart #Finnabair #Primamarketing #49andmarket #artanthology #wildorchidcrafts  #rangerink #mixedmedia #mixedmediacard #shabbychic #shabbychiccard #papercrafting #flowercard #chipboard #helmar #timholtz
Welcome to my creative space!

I'm here to share my final post as a designer for Scrap & Craft. Thank you Aneta, for the wonderful opportunity to create with such gorgeous products from your amazing shop! The store remains open, so please return often to pick up your favorite supplies. 

This sweet card features gorgeous Studio75 Berry Copse paper along with beautiful chipboard and flowers from the store. I just had to use this "don't forget to fly" sentiment with the fabulous SnipArt hot air balloon chippie making this a card that can be used for a variety of occasions.

This lovely floral cluster includes a Magnolia Flower, Ivory Mulberry Rose, and Pale Pink Mulberry Roses from the store along with some beauties from 49 and Market. I dry brushed the flowers and stamen with white gesso, then applied Finnabair's Soft Matte Gel Medium and sprinkled lightly with white gold microbeads to add sparkle and texture. 

I used Bambino Glue to adhere the Prills that I tucked in for color and texture.

The lovely Craft Molly Floral Corners Chipboard was snipped in half, then heat embossed in white, then again with sparkling holographic embossing powder. 

I used fabulous Studio75 The Berry Copse paper from the 6x6" pad for the background. To add texture and more sparkle, I stenciled Finnabar's Light Paste through an Art Anthology Lotus Stencil across most of the background and then while the paste was still wet, I sprinkled generously with Donna Salazar's Pralines & Cream Twinkle Dust Glitter to give a golden shimmery glow.

***Tip***
Once the glittered molding paste is completely dry,
used canned air to blow off any excess glitter.

Ah, this is my favorite part of the card. I cut a piece of coordinating paper from the Berry Copse pack to fit the back of the balloon and heat embossed the chipboard with bronze embossing powder. This tiny Finnabair Mechanicals Tin Heart fit perfectly over the basket of the hot air balloon. It is rubbed with metallic paint and Finnabair Waxes to give a grungy vintage feel. 

The background is stamped with 49 and Market's 1797 stamp in sepia ink, then spattered with white drawing ink.
