Vintage Mixed Media Card for ScrapBerry's


Welcome to my creative space. Today I'm sharing a card that I created for a very special scrapbooking friend who is turning 76 this week. She adores birds, so the gorgeous ScrapBerry's Primavera Collection with these sweet bird images was just perfect for this card. I've also used lots of lovely ScrapBerry's embellishments, which you can read about in my Tips and Techniques section below. 

Don't forget, ScrapBerry's is hosting a spring themed challenge through the end of April.
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
I created a sweet cluster with gorgeous Scrapberry's Cherry Blossoms, Lily, Freedom Flair Button, and Curls for Wedding Swirl. To soften the flowers, I dry brushed them with white gesso. 

On the other side I tucked in a Wind of Travel Clock and another Cherry Blossom.

To give a vintage feel, the background paper is dry brushed with white gesso, then splattered with Heidi Swapp Primrose Color Shine mist and white drawing ink.

The Primavera Card pages have so many gorgeous images. I cut out the birds and feather cards along with the blossoms and butterfly to layer as the focal point of the card. The edges are rubbed with Pumice Stone Distress Ink.

You can see just the head of the sweet French Journey Polymer bird. I brushed it with white gesso, then dabbed with Pumice Stone Ink. I added just a bit of blue with ScrapBerry's Blue Stains Ink. To add to the shabby vintage effect, some of the ink is rubbed off.

I tied a triple loop bow with Light Brown Shabby Ribbon - a perfect pairing with the vintage style of this card. Feathers are cut from the cards paper and arranged at the center of the bow.

The Butterflies Wings Clear Stamp is great for backgrounds and the edges of the card are stamped with this beautiful image. Note ~ the dry brushing on the background I mentioned earlier was done after stamping.

For added dimension I scattered silver microbeads and Tu-Tu Pink Prills around the clusters and bow.

My Little Star Bunny Congratulations Tag for ScrapBerry's

 
Welcome to my creative space! I'm not much of a color work artist, but couldn't resist coloring ScrapBerry's adorable "My Little Star" bunny stamp. Isn't this image so adorable? I've paired this sweet bunny with gorgeous paper from the Summer Joy Collection along with lovely ScrapBerry's embellishments.

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.

Close-ups
 
I stamped this adorable My Little Star Bunny image onto watercolor paper and colored it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. These markers blend nicely with each other and with water to achieve the shaded areas

I paired gorgeous Scrapberry's Cherry Blossoms with polymer flowers from the Summer Joy Set then fussy cut images from the Summer Joy Cards 2 image sheet to create this sweet cluster. The Kids' Fun Epoxy Congratulations sticker is layered over a tag from the Dream Land Card Set.

I scattered some Prills around the cluster for texture and painted a couple chipboard butterflies to accent. A snippet of lace from my stash is to the bottom for a delicate touch.

 
The background and stamped daisies are brushed with clear Wink of Stella for a bit of sparkle. 

I hope you'll grab your ScrapBerry's supplies and create a
special project with one of these adorable stamps!!

"You Decorate the World" Mixed Media Card for ScrapBerry's


Spring is the theme of the March/April challenge at ScrapBerry’s, and the design
team has been busy creating projects to inspire you as you join along. 

Be sure to stop on over at the ScrapBerry's blog for all the challenge details
and to be inspired by the rest of the design team creations HERE.

One of my favorite spring holidays is Mother's Day. I'm blessed to have a wonderful mother and created this card to help celebrate this special day with her. The sweet sentiment from the Cherished Jewel collection Romance & Tiaras Tag page is just perfect for this card.

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 cluster is created with a Scrapberry's Pink Gardenia paired with delightful resin flowers and a sweet flair button. I've been trying to use something old from my stash on each project I create and for this card it's a metal butterfly. I brushed it with gesso then added the delightful color with Scrapberry's Pink Ink Pad. I spritzed it with a fixative to keep the gorgeous color from rubbing off. Prills are adhered to the center to create dimension for the body.

I enjoy repeating patterns, and the die cut and printed leaves repeat the shape of the butterfly. The crystal swirl is cut from the Wedding 1 set. 

I've layered a couple sheets from the 6x6" Cherished Jewel collection, distressing the edges and punching the side edge of the floral sheet. The Crystal Sticker from the Floral Embroidery set pairs so perfectly with these gorgeous papers and the polymer Column is a great fit as well. I spattered some white ink across the card for a touch of mixed media.

Don't forget to hop on over to the ScrapBerry's blog for the
challenge details and gorgeous inspiration HERE.

Mixed Media Floral Spring Box for ScrapBerry's



Welcome back to my creative space! Today I'm sharing a mixed media spring floral box featuring ScrapBerry's gorgeous In Bloom Collection paired with lovely blossoms, resin and polymer pieces.

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
A mix of gorgeous ScrapBerry's Cherry Blossoms and Stemmed Lily's with a few flowers and leaves from my stash for a floral spring bouquet to decorate the top of the box. The paper mache box is covered with In Bloom Abundance paper.

The lovely ScrapBerry's French Journey polymer clock and Fairy Tale resin daisies are tucked into the cluster.

I embossed craft metal adhered to a piece of chipboard with a floral design to coordinate with the paper. It was brushed with white gesso, allowed to dry, then randomly rubbed with crackle paint across the surface. I let this sit over night to allow the crackle to dry naturally, then spritzed with two colors of mist.  I also added texture around the cluster with Prills.

**Tip**
If you will be applying gesso or acrylic paint to craft metal, be sure to lightly sand the
surface before embossing to help the gesso stick to the surface.

In Bloom ~ Abundance (SCB220608810)

"Spread Your Wings and Fly" Mixed Media Card for ScrapBerry's

Welcome back to my creative space! Today I have a card to share with you that I created with the gorgeous ScrapBerry's Juliet paper collection. I adore how this collection lends itself perfectly to combining a shabby chic style with touches of mixed media.

It's also time for the new March/April ScrapBerry's challenge. The theme is Spring and is open to anyone is the world using ScrapBerry's products. Hop on over the the ScrapBerry's blog HERE for all the details and to be inspired by projects the talented design team has created.

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 focal point of this sweet card is fabulous ScrapBerry's Flowers. I lightly dry brushed them with white gesso to soften the color. 

I'm trying to use something "old" that's been hanging around my studio for a while (as in years and years) on each project I make. Yes, we all have those treasures in our stash. I picked up a bargain sale pearl and beaded lace cuff several years ago that I thought I'd figure out how to use in my paper crafting. I finally cut it up and tucked pieces into the edges of the cluster. Now, I know you most likely don't have a fancy cuff laying around, but any kind of lace, pearls and beads will get the same effect. Be sure to watch for more bits and pieces of this cuff in future projects.

Several strips are cut from papers in the lovely Juliet collection with the tops and bottoms torn off to place under the flower cluster on the right side of the card for texture. The ScrapBerry's Butterflies Wings clear stamp set is used for the sentiment, "Spread your wings and fly," and I just couldn't resist tucking in a sweet white feather.

The text image from the same set is stamped randomly across the card. I die cut a doily from Juliet paper to tuck beneath the cluster. For visual texture, color mist is spattered across the background. 

I simply adore ScrapBerry's polymer and resin pieces. This sweet rose is from the Colorful Dreams Set. I brushed the piece with white gesso, then spritzed with color mist, and dabbed lightly with brown Distress Ink. Don't you just adore how the color settled down into the crevices? I applied molding paste with two different stencils in layers diagonally across the card and spritzed with color mist and water to highlight the texture. I also scattered a mix of gold microbeads and clear mini marbles around the cluster.

**Tip**
Water based color mediums do not adhere well to polymer or resin. A quick coat of
white gesso that has dried allows the color to cling to the piece.

Mixed Media Thank You Cards & TECHNIQUE VIDEO Featuring Prima Soft Oil Pastels with the February Scraps of Elegance Kit.



Welcome to my creative space!! I'm back to share a technique video with you featuring the Scraps of Elegance Watercolor Wishes February Mixed Media/Creativity Add On.

I'm so excited each month to see what fresh new mixed media product(s) Melinda has included in the kit and add ons. The February Creativity Add On includes Prima Soft Oil Pastels. I've not worked with oil pastels before, so enjoyed spending some time experimenting with several types of paper and inks to see what would work best to color the 49 and Market Gabi's Hibiscus flowers that I fussy cut for the focal flowers on a set of mixed media thank you cards.

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.

Close-Ups
 
The Kaisercraft Oui Oiu paper is dry brushed with white gesso then edged with blue oil pastels. I used the Kaisercraft Cherry Blossom stencil to apply texture then rubbed with Aquamarine Viva Gold to highlight. Pastel Art Gems add such lovely dimension.

 
I wanted a soft backdrop for these sweet flowers, so layered cheesecloth, white feathers, and burlap threads over one of the Momenta Watercolor Doilies.

 
I adore texture so used a mix of Minni Pearl and Coral See Prills sprinkled with Prima Pearl Glass Glitter across the card. You  can see a little of the stenciled texture peeking out from under the cheese cloth too.
