This month for the Scrapbookingncraft August 2021 Project we are using Flowers & Vines White Medium Leaves. I also decided to have a giveaway for my birthday! You need to watch the video… To see my last project for Melinda click here.
I used several different items from Melinda’s shop which I will link below. There were a couple of different mediums used, Inka Gold, Distress Ink, Distress Spray Stain and Dylusions. I used stamp sets from MFT and Altenew for a couple of the sentiments and the flowers.
Again you need to watch the video to see the giveaway. Melinda has generously provided a 15% off coupon to Scrapbookingncraft as well. I hope you enjoyed this months Scrapbookingncraft August 2021 Project video. Let me know your favourite card below. Hope you’re creating some arty craft alchemy yourself. Bye for now.
Today I am looking at the Couture Creations Glass Mat. I tried a lot of different mediums on it and left them to dry to see how easy to clean the mat is. Grab a drink and pull up a pew and see what’s what!
The Couture Creations Glass Mat has 10 acrylic feet however I may need to glue them on as one has started sliding around already! I also think a coat of gel medium or varnish would be a good addition to the back so it’s harder to damage. Another issue is dried Distress Paint is very hard to get off without a scraper!
Dirty Glass Mat
I ran through a bunch of mediums, Nuvo Embossing Paste, Ranger Alcohol Ink, Distress Ink, Nuvo Glacier Paste, Nuvo Glimmer Paste, Glossy Accents and Nuvo drops. They all cleaned off the glass mat easily while we. It was a little more work when they dried. Still doable though.
I made some cards with the panels I made in the video. I used some Altenew stamps and Lawn Fawn stamps. A bunch of stencils and a Kaisercraft stamp. I made twofer cards using the Wonderful stamp and die set from Crafti Potential.
I hope you enjoyed his look at the Couture Creations Glass Mat. I have previously looked at the Couture Creations Go Press n Foil. Do you have a glass mat you use for crafting? What do you think of it? Thanks for dropping by. I hope you are creating some arty crafty alchemy yourselves. See you all next time.
Today I am sharing with you Jazza’s Jazzy Art Box. It’s taken a good while to get this puppy opened due to well, life! Yesterday ended up being the perfect opportunity when I wasn’t able to live stream on YouTube. Still not happening 😒
There are lot’s of goodies inside the box. My favourites are the pencil case and the sketchbook. Both feel like nice high quality items. I was even able to add some light watercolour to the sketchbook.

I hope you enjoyed this look at Jazza’s Jazzy Art Box. It was fun to get a look at some of Jazza’s favourite art supplies, even though we all know he prefers Copics 😉. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you’re creating your own Arty Crafty Alchemy!
Today I wanted to share how I used contact to make my own specialty papers super cheaply. There is a cost breakdown at the end of the video below. I used many dies and stamps sets to make my cards so if you’re interested in cross brand card making this is the video for you!
For the first two cards I used two different Altenew sets for the sentiments and the die is from the Kaisercraft Rose stamp and die set used without stamping. Using a similar style I also made a card using the Tiger Lily Spellbinders D-Lite die. Last in this batch is a card using a Lifestyle Crafts die that I paired with some Gansai Tambi Starry Colours watercolor.
4 CAS Cards in a similar style
The next two cards use Kaisercraft dies again. The first is using the Circle Posy with a sentiment from the Inkadinkado Expressions set. My favourite card uses the Bouquet die with a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Mom + Me set.
The rainbow card is my fave
The next two cards have an ocean feel. One uses the mermaid from Kaisercraft and a spellbinders label die, the other uses a Fish from find it trading and sentiments from Kelly creates and Your Next stamp. Lastly I made a card with a balloon vellum background and sentiment dies from Crafti Potential.
Fishes and Mermaids and fun stuff
I hope you enjoyed these cards using the DIY Specialty Paper, let me know your favourite below. I hope you’re creating your own arty crafty alchemy. Bye for now.
For the first card I used Catherine Wheel and Storm Cloud Nuvo Shimmer Powders to make a background and then stamped the background stamp with the Clear Mark embossing pad. I then used Stampendous’ detail gold embossing powder to emboss the background and the sentiment strip with the little birdy and Love You.
Valentine’s and Love Cards
The next 3 cards are only shown in the video, I used the stencil from the box with some Distress Oxide and a blender brush. I layered a watercoloured floral heart over one, and added Altenew Build Rose flowers to the other two with sentiment strips. For the other card not made in the video I used the background I did make and layered 3 sets of the LOVE die I got from the range in England.
I made a mess…
This next card was messy! I started by stamping the heart ornaments across the top and colouring them with Nuvo Coral Alcohol Markers. I then embossed My Love with black Nuvo embossing powder and the hearts with Stampendous detail gold. Here’s where things went bad… I used the Nuvo Midas Touch pen to add gold shimmer and it went everywhere! To cover the mess I used some DoCrafts Clear Dimensional Glaze to the hearts and cut an extra one to add over the mess in the corner.
I hope you enjoyed these cards using the Hedgehog Hollow December 2020 box. In the end I had fun making some of them even if I did get frustrated at my constant mistakes! Let me know your fave Below. Thanks for stopping by.
