The sweet floral cluster includes Magnolia Flowers and an Ivory Mulberry Rose from the store along with a few Wild Orchid Crafts flowers from my stash. I tucked a few Prima Pearls into the empty spots.

The soft Organza Rose Trim is so lovely. Every girl loves some bling, so I added a sparkling rhinestone to the center of each blossom. 

The lovely Anemone Gaja Ornament chipboard is heat embossed with aged ivory embossing enamel, then the edges rubbed with Finnabair's Vintage Gold Wax. Don't be afraid to cut up your chippies. I snipped this one in half to extend out on each side of the cluster. The Scrapiniec Confetti Hearts include a ton of little hearts in three sizes. I heat embossed several in Raspberry and brushed with more of the gold wax.

Of course there needs to be a fluttering insect on any summery project. This Misz Masz Butterfly Chipboard Die Cut is embossed in aged ivory, then edged with raspberry and a touch of white gold wax over the body with a little rhinestone to add more bling.

The Violet Love background paper was dry brushed with white gesso, then stamped with two of the Agateria Grille stamps. I also added some spatter with Lindy's Gang Moonlit Mulberry Moon Shadow Mist and white drawing ink.

This delightful sentiment was cut from the 12 x12 Violet Love Paper Collection and edged with wisteria ink. The Anemone Fabian Chipboard Ornament is so perfect to anchor the sentiment. 

Bambino Glue is used to adhere texture elements from the Prills and Finnabair Microbeads around the flowers to the Confetti Hearts, mica shards, rhinestones, and sequins scattered around the card for texture.

"Dream of Being More" Mixed Media Graduation Card/Home Decor for Scrap & Craft

Summery Mixed Media Graduation Card/Home Decor by Tracey Sabella for Scrap & Craft: #studio75 #handmadecard #mixedmedia #mixedmediacard #shabbychic #shabbychiccard #papercrafting #flowercard #chipboard #lindysgang #lindysstampgang #Finnabair #Primamarketing #wildorchidcrafts #helmar #artanthology #usartquestprills #bluefernstudios  #agateria #scrapiniec #timholtz #rangerink
Welcome to my creative space!

Today I'm sharing a two in one shabby mixed media piece. It's an oversized mixed media graduation card, reinforced with an extra layer of 110lb cardstock so it can be placed on an easel to brighten up a mantel or desk. Rather than using a congratulations or graduation sentiment on the front, I stamped this inspirational sentiment that is perfect for a home decor piece as well as an encouragement to the graduate.

Tips and Techniques

The sweet floral cluster includes Magnolia Flowers, and Pale Pink Mulberry Roses from the Scrap & Craft Store. The gorgeous background paper is from the Craft O'Clock ~ Morning Dreams II Paper Collection. I also fussy cut flower images from the collection to layer under the cluster. The background and borders are stamped with Grille and Grille 3 Stamps from the store. I added a touch of teal color with PanPastels around the edges as well.

Bambino Glue dries clear and is just perfect for adhering texture with Prills and microbeads along with sequins, half pearls, and flakes of teal mica scattered onto the background.

From this angle you can see Pearl Stamens from the store that I tucked in under the rosebuds. I just adore the chipboard from Scrapiniec's Doily Lace Corner Set that I heat embossed in teal, then topped with another layer of blue glittered embossing powder. 

I collect odds and ends to use in my paper crafting from a variety of different sources. The decorative crystal and pearl stick pin is for wedding decor. I also tucked in a couple seashells I found at the shore on one of our vacations as well as a few flowers from my stash. A while back I crocheted some sweet little flowers and came across them recently. I couldn't resist adding one at the edge of the paper flowers.

The sentiment is stamped with Versafine black ink onto watercolor paper. Once dry, I spritzed with water and brushed with M. Graham watercolors, then tore around the words to expose the creamy white paper edges. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Foam Squares are used to raise up the sentiment so it sits nicely over the twine wrapped around the card.

I used Finnabair's Light Molding Paste with the Studio75 Small Brick Stencil to add texture and when dry spritzed with Lindy's Gang Starburst Mist, then spattered with white ink.

I got artsy with these sweet summery dragonflies. They're stamped the dragonfly image from Prima's Stamp-N-Add Butterfly Wings Stamps onto watercolor paper, then colored with blue and teal watercolors. It was a bit of extra work to fussy cut them, but well worth the effort! I wanted something shimmery, so added teal seed beads to the long slender bodies with Bambino Glue.

"Life is Wonderful" Mixed Media Tag for Scrap & Craft

Mixed Media Tag by Tracey Sabella for Scrap & Craft: #mixedmedia #mixedmediatag #shabbychic #gifttag #papercrafting #chipboard #studio75 #lindysgang #lindysstampgang #Finnabair #Primamarketing #agateria #Foamiran #Foamiranflowers #handmadeflowers #handcraftedflowers #timholtz #rangerink #dustyattic #usartquestprills #helmar 
Welcome to my creative space!

I've created a shabby mixed media tag featuring Studio75 The Peony Avenue Collection along with stamps, chipboard, flowers, and trim from the Scrap & Craft store. A complete product list can be found at the bottom of this post.

I am so happy to finally work with Foamiran to create flowers. I created the large rose in the cluster and have a DIY video tutorial for these beautiful roses that you can view HERE. The Scrap & Craft store has a full line of Foamarin and flower making supplies HERE.

 This beautiful focal rose is one of the first flowers I created with Foamiran. You can view my DIY video tutorial with tips on working with this fabulous product HERE.

I tucked in paper roses from the store along with one trimmed from Studio75 Organza Rose Trim. I had a few gaps around my cluster and a single organza rose cut in half filled those empty spaces perfectly. I also fussy cut flower and leaf images from bonus sheets in the Studio75 The Peony Avenue Collection paper set.

I adore mixing up textures and tucked in a couple fluffy white feathers along with one I molded from paper clay brushed with Finnabair's white gold art wax. The cluster is built atop a layer of wispy cheesecloth for even more texture.

The gorgeous Craft Molly Floral Corners Chipboard is heat embossed with Stampendous Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel. I've also added texture with Prima pearls, Prills, microbeads, glitter shards, Dusty Attic mini chipboard butterflies, and sequins.

I stamped the background using Grille stamps from the Scrap & Craft store.

The background was stenciled with transparent crackle medium over a Tim Holz Stone Layering Stencil, then brushed with Lindy's Frosty Forest Green and Alpine Ice Rose Shimmer Sprays. I have a large collection of Lindy's sprays and adore how I can coordinate their gorgeous colors to my papers and elements. I also added spatters with white drawing ink then distressed the edges and colored with PanPastels.

Vintage Mixed Media Father's Day Card for Scrap & Craft with Studio75 Cherry Blossom Collection

Welcome to my creative space!

Father's Day is this Sunday, so I've created a special vintage card for my dad featuring the fabulous Studio75 Cherry Blossom Collection from the Scrap & Craft Store. This collection is great for both feminine and masculine themed projects.

Tips and Techniques
Vintage Mixed Media Father’s Day Card by Tracey Sabella for Scrap & Craft featuring the Studio75 Cherry Blossom Collection:#studio75  #fathersday #fathersdaycard #fathersdaycards #mixedmedia #mixedmediacard #masculinecard #masculinecards #finnabair #finnabairproducts  #primamarketing #primamarketinginc #handmadecards #handmadecard #vintagecard #vintagecards  #steampunkcard #steampunkcards
I used a couple sheets from the Studio75 6x6" Cherry Blossom paper set. The script page was brushed with clear gesso, then lightly dry brushed with white gesso to lighten the script. Liquitex Black Lava Texture Gel is used with a Labrynth stencil from The Crafter's Workshop to add graphic masculine texture. I used the black designed paper to back the lighter paper after trimming out the center which I used to die cut the gears. Several colors of art wax are rubbed over the gears to give a metallic aged, rusty feel. 

I added Finnabair rusty stars and blades layered with gears, snaps, and stars. While the base pieces had a rust finish, the smaller pieces did not, so I brushed them with Finnabair Rust Effects Paste and added water that dripped down onto the paper making them look like they had rusted there. Of course I had to add a bit of rustic texture and used Bambino Glue to adhere Prills and Finnabair Microbeads. This strong glue dries clear and is perfect for this task.

I brushed black gesso over this chipboard hinge and while wet, heated with a heat tool until it bubbled to give a grungy texture. It took several coats of bubbled gesso to achieve this texture. It was then brushed with patina effects paste and then several colors of art wax. The chipboard piece had small holes. I inserted black mini brads through the holes, rusty wire mesh pieces, and background paper to adhere the pieces. A bit of copper art wax over the brads adds to the vintage feel.

The sentiment is stamped onto kraft paper and the torn edges rubbed with distress ink. The boy is from the Tim Holtz Paper Doll pack.

I hope you've been inspired to pull out your Scrap & Craft supplies
to create a card for a special dad in your life.

You can see how my flowers progressed as I learned to work with the Foamiran. I created the large rose in the center first, then the smaller one on the lower right side and the last one I made is on the left with more delicate and realistic petal edges.

I cut out and inked the edges of the center images and fussy cut the doily shape tucked into the cluster. They all came from the Studio75 ~ Cherry Blossom paper set while the background papers are from the Studio75 ~ Cherry Blossom 6x6 paper set.

The background is embossed using Finnabair's Light Paste with a flourish stencil, then when dry I applied Lindy's Frosty Forest Green and Alpine Ice Rose Starburst mists.

I used three different embossing powders for the chipboard pieces. Ivory for the chicken wire, shabby white for the gears, and Verdant for the leaf flourishes.

My First Foamiran Flowers with VIDEO TUTORIAL for Scrap & Craft

Hello my dear friends and welcome to my creative space.

I have created my very first Foamiran flowers and thought it would be fun to share the process with you in a DIY video including some tips I learned as I was creating them. I really enjoyed working with Foamiran and am delighted with the gorgeous and realistic roses I was able to make.



Here's a close up of the flower I created in the video:

Here are some close ups from the project I created with these flowers:

You can see how the rose from the video has more delicate and realistic edges than the large rose on my card. I share the tips I learned about working with Foamiran to achieve these edges in the video.

A selection of stamen can be found HERE.

Mixed Media Mother's Day Card for Scrap & Craft

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

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.

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.
