Floral Candle Holder with Patina Crackled Finish for Little Birdie Crafts

Floral Candle Holder with Patina Crackled Finish by Tracey Sabella for Little Birdie Crafts:  #traceysabella #littlebirdiecrafts #littlebirdieonline #littlebirdieflowers #diy #diyhomedecor #altered #candleholder #mixedmedia #rangerink #helmar #chipboard #heatembossing

Welcome to my creative space!

I just adore making something beautiful out of an item doomed for the trash. This wooden candle holder base was rescued from the clearance aisle of a local craft store with a large chip on one edge. Because of the damage, I only paid a mere 25 cents for it. I filled in the chip with texture paste and once it was dry, added texture with Little Birdie Crafts Mixed Media Paste and Crackle Paste for a perfectly grungy finish to color and decorate with these flowers from the gorgeous Woodland Stories collection that will be released later this year. Aren't you excited to get your hands on these gorgeous Little Birdie Crafts flowers?

Please stop by the Little Birdie Crafts blog for a full photo tutorial and close-ups HERE.

I hope you'll pop over there and leave some love.

Heartfelt Wishes Mixed Media Card for Studio75

Welcome to my creative space.

I have a new card to share featuring the gorgeous Studio75 Forever In Love paper collection. I adore working with this gorgeous collection which includes such lovely watercolor backgrounds and images that are so perfect for fussy cutting! I've added a stenciled design and color mist to the background along with dimensional flowers, lace and beaded texture which I talk about in the tips and techniques section below.

Tips and Techniques
I used beautiful Little Birdie Crafts flowers available at A.C. Moore that coordinate with the paper to create this lovely focal cluster and tucked in fussy cut images around the edges. I cut up a section of a vintage lace doily to tuck around the edges as well.

The background is stenciled with modeling paste using the Circle of Life Stencil from AALL & Create in the open areas. I tried not to cover up the gorgeous watercolor floral designs printed on the paper. I spritzed lightly with Lindy's Gang Golden Sleigh Bells Starbust mist to highlight the raised design. Once dry, I spattered with Lindy's Cape Cod Coral which is a perfect match for the beautiful paper below.

Here's a close-up of the fussy cut wreath and heart cut from the Forever In Love papers. Here you can see the lovely glimmer from the Lindy's starburst mist.

And another fussy cut piece with flower buds.

I cut this sweet sentiment from the Die Cuts Elements 02 Sheet which includes wonderful sentiments in both English and Polish.

I twisted together a few Pistachio Stamen from the store to tuck into the cluster and used Bambino Glue to adhere Go ManGo Prills to add texture.

Mother's Day Card for Studio75 DT May Challenge

Welcome to my creative space!

It's time for Studio75 May Challenge.

The theme:
Mother's Day

Create any project with a Mother's Day theme.


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

I am so fortunate to have my lovely mother in my life and have created a sweet mixed media card for this special occasion featuring the gorgeous Studio75 Violet Love collection as well as Scrapiniec chipboard and organza rose trim from the store and beautiful Little Birdie Crafts Flowers that can be found at A.C. Moore stores.

This lavender chipboard from Scrapiniec just called for texture to give the feel of real lavender. First I mixed Finnabair's Impasto paints to brush the blossoms with lavender and the leaves and stems with green. (I have only the basic color set of impasto's, but they can be mixed to create nearly any color I need.) Then Bambino glue was brushed across the blossoms with Prills are sprinkled on for the lovely texture. 

I arranged gorgeous flowers from Little Birdie Crafts available at A.C. Moore below the lavender along with an Organza Rose I cut from a strip of this gorgeous trim available in the Studio75 store. 

The metal butterfly is colored with Finnabair's fabulous new metallic color waxes in Heather Hills and Electric Violet.

This paper is so beautiful that I didn't do too much to the background. I used a script stamp lightly around some of the edges. I also stenciled a delicate design diagonally across the base using the Lotus Stencil from Art Anthology then lightly dry brushed over the design with white gesso to make it a little more visible. Finally I scattered some of these sweet Scrapiniec Confetti Hearts across the card.

Welcome to my creative space!

I have created a floral mixed media birthday card featuring the gorgeous Studio75 Forever In Love Collection that includes beautiful images that are perfect for fussy cutting. I just adore the amazing colors in this paper set, don't you?

Tips and Techniques

The Forever In Love paper collection includes such fabulous neutral background papers with delicate designs like this one from the 6x6" set. I've fussy cut flowers, leaves, and a darling heart to pull in the colors that are prominent in the collection and then found flowers in my stash that are a perfect match to this color palette. I dry brushed the dimensional flowers with white gesso to soften the color.

To create texture on the background I mixed Antique Bronze Cadence Metallic Paint from the store into Finnabair Frosty Pearl Icing Paste to get this fabulous rose gold color to stencil. I also spattered Heidi Swapp Peach Color Shine and white drawing ink for visual texture. The sentiments is stamped onto white cardstock with Brilliance Rocket Red Gold Archival Ink which is a perfect match to these gorgeous flowers by Little Birdie Crafts sold in A.C. Moore stores. And the sweet cherry blossom flower is from the Studio75 store.

This gorgeous Scrapiniec Lavender Mist Frame is heat embossed with bronze embossing powder which looks so great against the stenciled background. I have found that using a foam applicator like Ranger's Emboss It Dauber works great to apply embossing onto large intricate pieces like this works great.

I used Bambino Glue to adhere Coral Sea Prills and Finnabair Copper Microbeads texture around the bottom of the cluster as well as a few microbeads scattered across the flowers. I tucked in gears and metal flowers from my stash and rubbed them with Finnabair's Firebird Metallic Wax.

The card is adhered to one of the 6x6" Studio75 White Card Bases. It's so handy to start with 6x6" patterned paper and have these sturdy card bases on hand that are a perfect fit!

"Enjoy Every Moment" Mixed Media Card for Studio75

"Enjoy Every Moment" Mixed Media Card by Tracey Sabella for Studio75: #traceysabella #studio75 #timholtz #finnabair #helmar #tombo #eksuccess #jillibeansoup #mixedmedia #shabbychic #mixedmediacard #mixedmediacards #shabbychiccard #shabbychiccards #diycard #diycards #fussycut #handcraftedcard #handcraftedcards #handmadecard #handmadecards #springcard
Welcome to my creative space!

I'm up on the Studio75 blog with this floral mixed media card featuring the gorgeous Cherry Blossom Paper Set. I often use the grungy papers from this collection to create masculine cards and projects, but used one of the sweet, feminine papers for this card. Don't you just adore how the pink plays against the black in this gorgeous paper collection?

Tips and Techniques

There are several layers of papers from the Cherry Blossom Set on this sweet card. I've used a background sheet from the 6x6" pack, then cut out the floral print rectangle from the 05 sheet and finally fussy cut the flowers and leaves that I layered with dimensional flowers from the store. I'm often asked what scissors work well for fussy cutting. My favorite go to scissors for this purpose are the EK Success Small Precision Scissors.

The background is stenciled with Finnabair's Rose Gold Icing paste to coordinate perfectly with the cherry blossom pink on the papers.

This close-up of the cluster shows how beautiful the fussy cut leaves look tucked in amongst the flowers. The darling sentiment button is also part of the Cherry Blossom collection. The black wood circles are added as an accent and rubbed lightly with Finnabair's Sweet Rose metallic wax.

Mixed Media Birthday Card for Studio75 DT April Challenge

Mixed Media Birthday Card by Tracey Sabella for Studio75: #traceysabella #studio75 #littlebirdiecrafts #solidoak #rangerink #primamarketing #finnabair #helmar #spring #springcard #mixedmedia #mixedmediacard #mixedmediacards #shabbychic #shabbychiccard #shabbychiccards #handmadeflowers #springisintheair #handmadecard #handmadecards #diycard #diycards #handcraftedcard #hancraftedcards
Welcome to my creative space!

It's time for Studio75 April Challenge.

The theme:
Bingo

Create any project, using any technique, using 3 elements from one line,
either vertically, horizontally or diagonally.


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

For my card, I selected the middle horizontal line using Bird, Green, and Flower. The gorgeous Studio75 Forever In Love Paper Collection worked so perfectly to meet this challenge with it's beautiful floral designs and plenty of amazing flowers and leaves to fussy cut for the project. It also includes warm and lovely greens in the foliage. I tucked in a few branches of lacy moss to highlight the green. All I needed to add to meet the challenge board was a sweet bird charm swooping next to the sentiment. 

Tips and Techniques

I used a circle die to trim out the birthday sentiment from the Forever In Love Paper Collection and fussy cut flowers, leaves, and the sweet heart to add to the floral cluster. I added a small spray of stamen from the Studio75 Store to tuck in as well. 

I just adore the subtle music pattern printed on this paper. I trimmed down the focal paper from the 6x6" paper set just a little and layered it over a second sheet from the collection. The edges of both pieces were inked and distressed.



I added a few items from my stash: a leafy jewelry pendant; a green vial from Solid Oak filled with iridescent seed beads for a bit of sparkle; lace, a bling circle, and bird charm. Just the other day at the craft store, I spied a package containing several varieties of moss, that I just had to buy. Bambino Glue worked perfectly to adhere the moss. Don't you just adore the texture that this natural element adds?

Here you can see the fabulous fussy cut images from the Forever In Love collection. The gorgeous dimensional flowers from Little Birdie Crafts at A.C. Moore coordinate so perfectly!!
