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.
This month for my Scrapbookingncraft May 2021 Project Melinda sent some chipboard windows to play around with. Watch the video for a 15% off discount code. I made some cards again. The plan was to make a second project but my daughter needed some help during her pregnancy so I didn’t get there.
I did manage to get a prototype made and a second card filmed though. The first was created using Worn Lipstick for the background papers. For the Damask chair from Stampendous I covered it in Frosted Crystal embossing powder from ranger. It didn’t turn out how I hoped. Not enough definition! The cat and dog I had precoloured from lawn fawn. The background brick paper is from The Craft Stall\Rosie’s Studio Flourish paper pad.
On the second card I used Tumbled Glass Oxide but I felt I should have used a darker ink like Broken China instead so that there was more contrast. The background stamp used on both cards is Floral Wall Paper from Kaisercraft. Both use flowers and vines from Art Impressions Birdhouse Cubbies set and the paper is from Prima Fairy Rhymes.
I coloured the cat and dog with Copics and the sentiment is from Hero Arts Operation Write Home. If you’d like to see my previous Scrapbookingncraft project go here and to get the windows here. I hope you enjoyed my Scrapbookingncraft May 2021 Project this month. Let me know below whether you prefer the pink or blue. Hope you are creating some arty crafty alchemy yourself! See you 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 sharing with you the Aldi Watercolour Paint Set and Brush Ink markers. They were quite affordable as most Aldi art products are and worked surprisingly well. To see how they work and what I think of them watch the video below. You can also see how I painted these flowers in this live stream.
I used the Jumbo Amaryllis and Jumbo Peony to paint with the paint set and brush markers respectively. These gorgeous large flowers look absolutely wonderful watercoloured and who doesn’t love a rainbow? Behind the Amaryllis is some Nuvo gold glimmer paste and the stamp is from Lawn Fawn’s Mom + Me. Behind the peony is Inka Gold through a brick stencil.
This time I wanted to see how a proper rainbow would go with the brush markers. It turned out great and over the top I added the Hedgehog Hollows To The Moon and Back stamp with Nuvo black embossing powder. The stencils used are Tile Pattern from Kaisercraft and a Brick pattern from MFT.
Let me know below if you have tried the Aldi Watercolour set or Brush Markers. I hope you enjoyed this post and are staying safe creating your own arty crafty alchemy. Thanks for stopping by.
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.
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 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.
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.
Today I am sharing with you Papercraft Essentials Issue 181 and making a few projects mostly with the 3D embossing folder. This is the first 3D embossing folder in my stash!
I really like this 3D embossing folders versatility from Papercraft Essentials Issue 181 because the embossed side looks like gems and the debossed side looks like honeycomb. The honeycomb side made a great backdrop to the Elizabeth Crafts Buzzin’ Around stamps and dies. With a little Wild Honey Distress Oxide and some sparkly silver vellum the cards was complete.
The next two cards I ran with the Geo theme and used Tim Holtz’ Geo Springtime Butterfly die cuts for one card, blending out some more oxides in the background. Then I used Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet as my colours of choice and Happy Mother’s Day was heat embossed in white finished this card off. The next card has a background of Candied Apple Oxide and some Poppy Crafts Hexagons. The Hedgehog Hollows Finding Your Way Heart is stamped and embossed with Glacier White Nuvo detail embossing powder. The sentiment is from Honey Bee Stamps
The last card showcases both the Geo stamps and 3D embossing folder from Papercraft Essentials Issue 181. The fox was stamped with memento, Coloured with Copics in YR21 YR24 and YR27, then fussy cut out. The vellum looked so pretty as the bee wings that I decided to use a pale blue piece as the backdrop over the 3D embossing folder. I stacked a hello die cut and stamped foxy lady on a banner to finish off the card.
I hope you enjoyed this look at Papercraft Essentials Issue 181. But my one criticism is that my embossing folder has almost split at the crease as a result of running it through the Cuttlebug a couple of times. Some box tape should sort that out because I really want to use it more! Let me know below which is you favourite card bellow. Thanks for stopping by.
