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!
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.
G’day G’day, it’s been a while lol. Lots has been going on behind the scenes! This week I am bringing you projects featuring a stencil from Melinda at Scrapbookingncraft. I even share a discount code in the video! Here is a link to a previous Halloween Collab I did with Melinda.
Melinda sent me the lovely stencil Shattered Circle to use this month so I based my project around that. My first couple of attempts didn’t quite turn out the way I hoped so I kept practicing!
with this first card I used Picked Raspberries and salty Ocean Distress inks with Nuvo Sparkle paste over the top. I used the MFT Radiating Dots stamp in the background with Spun Sugar ink.
The sentiment is chipboard also from Scrapbookingncraft covered in spun sugar oxide and wink of Stella then clear embossed three times.
There be dragons
To switch it up for the video I swapped to Squeezed Lemonade and Barn Door Distress Ink. These two didn’t quite work the way I’d hoped but they still look nice together. This time I used BoBunny glitter paste.
Both the Dragon and the Hello Friend are again chipboard from Melinda. I wished up this time and used Squeezed Lemonade and Barn Door Distress paints to colour them. To these I added three layers of clear sparkle embossing powder for that nice shiny dimensional look. The sentiment strip accross the Dragon is a Spellbinders Glimmer plate from Sentiments II.
I hope you enjoyed this look at the new stencil from Scrapbookingncraft. If you did head over to Melinda’s website with the discount code from the video and check out some of the cool items in the shop. Hope you are creating your own arty crafty alchemy. Bye for now.
Today I am making a Hedgehog Hollow Card Using All Four Boxes. I did not start out by planning it this way but as I was going through the boxes it organically happened. I did cut a lot of the footage of me flipping through the boxes and choosing papers to save time lol. Luckily all the flowers were already cut out so that saved me a tonne of time!
Knowing I was going to use the Hedgehog Hollow Pocket stamps and dies I planned accordingly, finding two papers that looked good together. Hunting through my as yet unsorted ink pad swatches I found a colour that closely matched the papers. At first I was concerned the Milled Lavender Distress ink was too pale. The Tim Holtz stamp platform helped me get around this by allowing me to repeatedly stamp the images on top of themselves, building up the colour.
I die cut the Sweet word die three times on white cardstock backed with Crafts 4 U wide double sided adhesive tape. Layering them up and covering them with Milled Lavender and clear Wink of Stella. The stamped and cut pocket was adhered with foam tape to raise it up.
After quickly shaping a bunch of the precut Lawn Fawn Spring Sprig flowers I adhered them with Helmar glue. After sticking the layered up sweet to the pocket I added some more flowers. Then I added more bling to a card than I ever have before!
Here are the cards I helped my little friend make.
A little crooked but not bad for a 4 year old. The next one uses chipboard from a previous haul that you can get here.
What did you think of my Hedgehog Hollow Card Using All Four Boxes? It didn’t go quite the way it was envisioned, card making is like that though… Hope you are all creating some arty crafty alchemy of your own. See you next time 🙂
Today I am sharing a St Patrick’s Day card that I was determined to get out on time. I even had to film it twice. I really don’t have a lot of items I could use for the challenge I set myself but I’m pleased with how things turned out and even added in the colourless blender ombre technique for her skirt.
