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

 
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.

Tips and Techniques
 
 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.

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:

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.

Tips and Techniques

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.

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.

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

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

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.
