Welcome to my creative space!

We are so blessed with a beautiful daughter-in-law who is an amazing mom to our little granddaughter, Avery. I created this sweet Mother's Day card for her featuring the Craft O'Clock Always Together Collection paired with Mulberry Magnolia Flowers and a Pink Cherry Blossom from the Scrap & Craft store. I've also entered this card in the Lindy's Stamp Gang May Challenge.

I simply adore how the Craft O'Clock collections include such gorgeous images on the back of the package label to use on your projects. I fussy cut a couple of these floral images to tuck in behind the dimensional flowers.

The focal flowers include Magnolia Flowers and Pink Cherry Blossom from the store. They are dry brushed with white gesso for a shabby mixed media feel.

I've also tucked in metal wings, resin flowers, ribbon leaves, die cuts, jewelry pieces, sequins, hand crocheted flower, art pebbles tin hearts, and art stones from my stash. When creating mixed media pieces, you can really combine about anything you might have laying around. I've colored the wings, resin flowers, jewelry piece, and art stones with Lindy's Stamp Gang Autumn Maple Crimson and Tibetan Poppy Teal Starburst mist, then rubbed with Finnabair art wax.

When creating a cluster, it helps to start with the larger pieces in the center, then build out with smaller elements. Here, I built a layer of torn lace down from the center of the cluster and added dimensional items over top.

Here's a close-up to see more of the mixed media background. I added stenciling, a bit of color, and white spatter with drawing ink. The edges are distressed to add to the shabby feel of the card.

Bambino Glue from the store is used to adhere the art stones and sequins.

Mixed Media Mother's Day Card ~ DT Inspiration for Scrap & Craft May Challenge

Mother’s Day card by Tracey Sabella for Scrap & Craft: https://bit.ly/2Fxljl7 #studio75 #mothersdaycard #mothersday #mothersdayhandmade #mothersdayart #flowercard #handmadecard #chipboard #watercolor #mixedmedia #mixedmediacard #shabbychic #shabbychiccard #papercrafting #finnabair #primamarketing #lindysstampgang #wildorchidcrafts  #artanthology #usartquestprills #bluefernstudios #helmar

Welcome to my creative space!

Today I'm sharing my DT inspiration for the Scrap & Craft May Challenge. Mother's day is just around the corner, and I've created this sweet card for my beautiful mom.

In this challenge you need to use any three chipboard pieces in your project. You can create any project you want: layout, card, canvas, art journal page or OTP project.

You need to use at least one product from the Scrap & Craft store
and link that product to the Scrap and craft store.

You can find all the challenge details HERE on the Scrap & Craft Blog.

Tips and Techniques

I used two pieces of chipboard from the Lavender Mist - frame 02 Set. I painted them, spread Bambino glue across the blossom areas, and sprinkled with purple microbeads.

Texture is added to the background with light molding paste using Art Anthology's Lotus stencil, then spritzed with blue and purple color mist to highlight the texture. When dry, I used a script stamp randomly across the background and then spattered with white drawing ink. More texture is added around the cluster using prills and chunky glass glitter. I just had to add a little bling with a few clear rhinestones scattered near the floral cluster.

I've used a Mulberry Paper Magnolia Flower and Pink Cherry blossom from the store as well as a piece of Studio75 ~ Organza rose trim. I cut a blossom from the lace to tuck in and dyed it with some of the purple and blue color mist I used on the background.

I stamped out the leafy Branch stamp onto watercolor paper and used Zig Real Brush Markers for a vibrant watercolor effect. The leaves were then fussy cut to tuck in around the cluster.

I used 4 pieces of chipboard all together. This script beauty piece from Michaels is heat embossed with shabby white embossing enamel. The final piece is the center circle from the Crafty Molly ~ Zahia frame. It is brushed with randomly with metallic paint coordinating with the background and used as a base for the beauty sentiment.

Steampunk Mixed Media Card for Scrap & Craft

Steampunk Birthday Card by Tracey Sabella for Scrap & Craft: https://bit.ly/2J2Izda #steampunk #steampunkcard #mixedmedia #mixedmediaart #birthdaycard #masculinecard #mixedmediacard #studio75 #gears #finnabair #finnabairproducts #primamarketing #rustpaste

Welcome to my creative space!

I have a new project for you featuring the fabulous Studio75 Cherry Blossom Collection from the Scrap & Craft Store. If you have been following me for a while, you have probably figured out that I have a way of changing things up. This paper collection at first glance is filled with lovely floral designs; however, there are also graphic papers that are perfect for masculine themed projects. My husband has a birthday this month, so I've used one of those papers from the 6x6" set to create this steampunk card to celebrate.

Tips and Techniques
Steampunk Birthday Card by Tracey Sabella for Scrap & Craft: https://bit.ly/2J2Izda #steampunk #steampunkcard #mixedmedia #mixedmediaart #birthdaycard #masculinecard #mixedmediacard #studio75 #gears #finnabair #finnabairproducts #primamarketing #rustpaste
The card base is trimmed from one of the Studio75 Cherry Blossom 6x6" papers, and the birthday sentiment is trimmed from a strip included in the 12x12" collection. I placed the birthday sentiment on a piece of randomly trimmed black plastic mesh brushed with metallic art wax. I also lightly brushed the black sentiment strip with white gold wax to get a grungy feel.

I used the Studio75 Small Brick Stencil with Finnabair Concrete Stone Efffects Paste to add texture. I have quite a collection of found and purchased steampunk elements including Finnabair's gears and hearts. I selected a few to arrange on the card, so perfect with this graphic paper and brick texture.

The background paper is stamped with grungy crackle and text stamps. 

The steampunk elements that were bright silver, brass, or copper were brushed with black gesso. Once I had everything adhered, I brushed everything with several colors of Finnabair's wax and then added her Rust and Patina Effects Paste. I spritzed the wet paste with water, so it would ooze down onto the paper and look like those elements had been there a while and had rusted onto the page. 

Around the elements, I randomly brushed on Bambino Glue from the store and sprinkled with bronze microbeads for added texture.

Sweet Floral Bird Card for ScrapBerry's

Welcome to my creative space!

I enjoy creating cards for family and friends and adding personal touches just for them. One of my friends adores birds, so the images in ScrapBerry's Garden of Delights Collection along with one of their Bird on the Perch Charms were just perfect to create a lovely card for her. I've also pulled a chipboard bird frame and a wooden bird cage from my stash to add to the bird theme.

This sweet cluster includes a ScrapBerry's Cherry Blossom and Stemmed Lily as well as a Bird on the Perch Charm. I've also tucked in a few Wild Orchid Crafts Flowers. The Cards 1 page included this darling bird image. 

I added a Blue Fern Studios chipboard frame and KaiserCraft wooden birdcage. The frame is heat embossed with bronze embossing powder while the cage and Blue Fern Bits Of Honey chipboard are embossed in white. The lace is a piece I picked up at JoAnn's a few years back.

I rubbed the darling charm with Finnabair's Butterfly Spells Sparks paint and finished by rubbing with her Vintage Gold and Aged Brass Metallique Wax. The background is stenciled with Finnabair Light Paste and spritzed with Lindy's Creme Brûlée Cream Starburst mist and Blue Fern Studios Sky Color Mist to add texture.

This piece is molded with Prima's IOD Paper Clay and Keyholes Mould, painted with Butterfly Spells Sparks paint then rubbed with vintage gold and aged brass wax. I created more texture on the background with cheesecloth, punchinella mesh, Prills, pearls, and rhinestones.

Shabby Chic Birthday Card featuring Studio75 The Peony Avenue Collection for Scrap & Craft

Shabby Chic Birthday Card by Tracey Sabella for Scrap & Craft #Studio75 #shabbychiccard #shabbychic #papercrafting #finnabair #primamarketing #usartquestprills #distressink #mayarts #chipboard #butterflycard
Welcome to my creative space!

I'm excited to share my first design team project for Scrap & Craft with you, a shabby chic birthday card featuring The Peony Avenue Collection by Studio75 along with a sweet cherry blossom flower and pearl stamens from the store.

Tips and Techniques
Shabby Chic Birthday Card by Tracey Sabella for Scrap & Craft #Studio75 #shabbychiccard #shabbychic #papercrafting #finnabair #primamarketing #usartquestprills #distressink #mayarts #chipboard #butterflycard
I fussy cut the leaves from the image page included in The Peony Avenue Paper Pack.  To create the stamen cluster, several of the stamen pieces are folded in half and glued together. The sweet Cherry Blossom is dry brushed with white gesso and set into a rhinestone circle pin I had in my stash.

I tied a triple loop bow from wrinkle ribbon, which I colored with distress ink and lightly dry brushed with white gesso to enhance the shabby chic feel I was going for.

I ran a line of Bambino Glue down the center of the butterfly and sprinkled with prills to form a dimensional body for this chipboard butterfly. The butterfly is heat embossed in white, then rubbed with Finnabair Rose Gold Wax and adhered atop a decorative resin frame.

I tried to keep this card simple, but couldn't resist spattering white ink droplets across the background.

The edges of the focal paper are distressed and lightly inked. The vintage lace is from my stash, and I added a few half pearls to the floral centers.

"Warmest Wishes" Shabby Mixed Media Card for the March More Than Words Mini Challenge.

“Warm Wishes” mixed media card by Tracey Sabella. https://bit.ly/2uA73YW #49andmarket #finnabair  #primamarketing #mixedmedia #mixedmediacard #shabbychic #shabbychiccard #lindysstampgang #usartquestprills #artanthology #helmar
Welcome to my creative space!

I have several friends and family members with birthday's coming up, so spent some time in my studio this afternoon creating this sweet mixed media card featuring 49 and Market paper, flowers, stamps and die-cuts from my stash. The March More Than Words Mini Challenge this month is to use the word "warm" on a card, tag, ATC, or postcard.

You can find the challenge details HERE.

A floral cluster with 49 and Market flowers. I stamped several small blossoms from Gabi's Hibiscus Set onto watercolor paper, painted with M. Graham watercolor paints, then fussy cut the images to tuck in among the dimensional flowers. The Tim Holtz Gumdrop is colored with alcohol ink to coordinate.

The 49 and Market Wing and Things Die-Cuts have such gorgeous images. I've used the beautiful blue flowers and sweet butterfly here. 

I molded a couple feathers to tuck in and rubbed with Finnabair Wax to bring out the textures. To add subtle visual texture, I stamped across the bottom of the card with the bubble image from 49 and Market's Gabi's Textue Set with Stormy Mix'd Media Inx. Over this I stenciled with Finnabair Light Paste using the Art Anthology Lotus stencil then spritzed with Lindy's and Shimmerz mist to highlight the design.

The sentiment uses the required challenge word and is stamped onto watercolor paper. 

**Tip of the Day**
The sentiment stamp also included "this Easter season" below Warmest Wishes. I covered the part I didn't want stamped with washi tape, inked up the stamp, then removed the tape before stamping onto the watercolor paper.

Welcome to my creative space!

Today I have a spring garden themed birthday card to share with you featuring ScrapBerry's gorgeous Garden of Delights Collection paired with their beautiful flowers, metal dragonfly, polymer watering can, and other embellishments. We have a dear friend who owns a garden center and loves anything to do with flowers and gardening so these papers and elements were absolutely perfect to create a birthday card for her.

Lots of ScrapBerry's flowers and embellishments arranged for this main cluster. I trimmed two cards from the Cards 2 page then distressed the edges for a base to build the cluster on as well as fussy cutting flowers from the Cards 1 page to tuck in among the dimensional flowers. The flowers are dry brushed with white gesso for a shabby chic look.

The polymer flourish and flower are painted with Prima Butterfly Spells Sparks Paint then rubbed with Finnabair Rose Gold wax to bring out the textures. The watering can is painted with metallic silver paint.

This dragonfly from the Wind of Travel Metal Charms Set is so sweet! I painted the wings with Finnabair Mermaid Sparkle Sparks Paint then rubbed the body and raised areas on the wings with Finnabair Vintage Gold Wax.

Background texture is added with Finnabair Light Texture Paste using the Art Anthology Keyholes Stencil. Once dry I spritzed with Lindy's Frosty Forest Green Starburst mist to bring out the texture, then spattered with white ink. More texture is added below the cluster with prills and Finnabair Microbeads. I also scattered ScrapBerry's Colorful Dreams Brads along with sequins from my stash.

"Comfy with My Dad" Mixed Media Layout for More Than Words Challenge

"Comfy with My Daddy" mixed media layout by Tracey Sabella. Entered in the March More Than Words Main Challenge. #49andMarket  #49&Market  #DustyAttic #Finnabair #PrimaMarketing #mixedmedia #scrapbooklayout  #chipboard  #papercrafting #prills

When I saw the March Main Challenge at More Than Words, I knew it would be just perfect for this photo of our handsome son and adorable granddaughter! The Word Inspiration is "Comfortable." Doesn't Avery look perfectly comfortable and happy on her strong daddy's shoulders? 

The colors in this challenge board are so beautiful. I've used all five colors featuring
gorgeous 49 and Market flowers and Scents of Nature Clockworks Paper .

All of the challenge details can be found HERE.

Tips and Techniques

A cluster of gorgeous 49 and Market flowers. The leaves are created with 49 and Market Gabi’s Texture Stamp Set. I stamped and heat embossed the image, then watercolor painted the leaves to coordinate with the focal paper and color challenge. The delightful layered die cut butterflies are also from 49 and Market and fit the color challenge perfectly.

The Dusty Attic Vine Corner Chipboard was brushed with crackle medium and set aside to dry overnight. I find that crackle medium has a way of flaking off, so I thinned gel medium with a little water and brushed it over the crackle. This acts like a glue holding the crackle in place, but thin enough to maintain the crackle texture. Next I painted with metallic paint and rubbed with Finnabair waxes to highlight the texture.

I've been making paper clay shapes lately, and in the process have collected the broken bits and pieces. I painted a few of them to tuck into the clusters.

A close-up of the sweet side cluster. You can see that I lightly brushed the edges of these lovely flowers with Finnabair gold and white gold waxes. I have a drawer of jewelry pieces and findings that I have picked up on clearance at local craft stores over the years. A bit of Amethyst Magic Finnabair Wax and this one is perfect to tuck in amongst the flowers.

The photo is framed with corrugated cardboard with layers of color and shimmer with metallic paints and Finnabair waxes. I added texture by applying Prills, seed beads and Finnabair microbeads to the frame with gel medium and more of the jewelry pieces are tucked in as well.

I found a wonderful distressed typewriter font called Trixie to use for my title. I printed it on white cardstock and colored with distress ink to coordinate.

Texture is created around the frame with frayed cheesecloth dyed dark green with Lindy's Stamp Gang Frosty Forest Green Starburst mist. The frayed edges are adhered by brushing with Finnabair Soft Matte Gel Medium. Before attaching the frame and cheesecloth, I used light molding paste with Art Anthology's Lotus Stencil for background texture. Violet gold metallic paint is thinned with water and brushed around the frame. I spritzed with a little more water and patted the edges lightly with paper towels to blend the color into the background.

I used more bits of dyed cheesecloth as well as mica flakes and an assortment of embellishments to add texture below the photo.

Mixed Media Baby Frame for ScrapBerry's

Shabby Mixed Media Baby Frame by Tracey Sabella for ScrapBerry’s. #scrapBerrys #mixedmedia #shabbymixedmedia #finnabair #primamarketing #dustyattic #letterit Please click photo for details.
Welcome to my Creative Space!

I've created a sweet mixed media baby frame featuring lots of fabulous ScrapBerry's products including cut outs from the darling My Little Star Collection.

 I made this frame for a friend, so I tucked in one of our little granddaughter's newborn photos to photograph it. Can you believe she's already a year old? Time flies by all too quickly!

A sweet floral cluster filled with gorgeous ScrapBerry's flowers. The adorable onesie is fussy cut from the My Little Star Collection New Arrival Tag page. I've also tucked in a sweet polymer rattle from the Kids' Fun Set and centered a Fairy Tale Resin Flower on the butterfly.

I heat embossed the gorgeous Dusty attic heart with white embossing powder then with glittery holographic powder. Then to add a bit of grunge, I rubbed shadows onto the heart with Finnabair's Rose Gold Wax.

Here I used more gorgeous Scrapberry's flowers. I softened them by dry brushing with white gesso, then added sparkle with bits of chunky glass glitter and prills. The darling rolling horse is from the Kids' Fun Set and you can see the pretty Versailles Resin Chrysanthemums. The pram is also cut from the My Little Star Tag page.

The Rose Garden Polymer flower flourish was just perfect to center the stamped and embossed  sentiment. I rubbed the edges lightly with the same color ink used to stamp the sentiment for some soft color. Lot's of texture here with lace, crackle, prills, microbead, and Finnabair's Glass Glitter and Art Stones.

This sweet butterfly is from the Elegy Butterfly Polymer set. I brushed it with gesso, then colored with mist and Finnabair's Art Wax.

The frame was brushed with gesso, then spread with crackle paste and allowed to dry over night for the cracks to fully develop. Crackle has a way of flaking off for me, so I thinned down some PVA glue with water and brushed with it over the dried crackle and set the frame aside to dry once more. The frame was randomly brushed teal and pink color sprays to settle into the cracks, then lightly dry brushed with metallic paints in similar colors over their coordinating colors - ie pink paint over the pink mist areas. Once dry, I lightly dry brushed with white gesso to bring out the texture.

Shabby Mixed Media Wedding Card for ScrapBerry's

Shabby chic, mixed media wedding card by Tracey Sabella featuring ScrapBerry's Winter Joy Collection. Also using Prima Finnabair products, Wild Orchid Crafts Flowers, Lindy's Stamp Gang mists, Art Anthology Stencil, and Dusty Attic Chipboard. Details: http://bit.ly/2CRpHKw
Welcome to my creative space!

Weddings are such special occasions! ScrapBerry's gorgeous Winter Joy Collection was absolutely perfect to create a card for the sweet couple's snowy winter wedding.

Tips and TechniquesShabby chic, mixed media wedding card by Tracey Sabella featuring ScrapBerry's Winter Joy Collection. Also using Prima Finnabair products, Wild Orchid Crafts Flowers, Lindy's Stamp Gang mists, Art Anthology Stencil, and Dusty Attic Chipboard. Details: http://bit.ly/2CRpHKw
You can see the gorgeous ScrapBerry's cream gardenia here used as the focal point of the cluster. I filled out the arrangement with Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. They are dry brushed with white gesso to soften the colors and give a snowy feel. Loops of ScrapBerry's Wax String add so much lovely texture tucked behind the flowers and their Wedding 2 Resin Chrysanthemum is a sweet little touch. White ink spatter adds to a wintry snowy feel, and I've distressed the paper edges to give a rustic, shabby look.

These ScrapBerry's Winter Joy papers have such soft and delightful designs that worked so perfectly for this shabby mixed media wedding card. The ScrapBerry's Polymer wedding sentiment was brushed with gesso, then when dry with gold color spray. It's finished off with a dusting of super fine glitter that reminds me of glistening snow.

I added a chipboard chandelier from Dusty Attic colored with embossing powder, then rubbed with a bit of Finnabair's Rose Gold Wax and bejeweled with teardrop pearls. The background is stenciled with a mixture of gel medium, microbeads and glitter, then dusted with more super fine glitter while still wet. The Art Anthology Lotus stencil reminds me of the wedding ring quilt my grandmother created and gave to us on our wedding day.
