Scrapbookingncraft May 2021 Project Chipboard Windows

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.

Worn Lipstick Prototype Card

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.

Tumbled Glass Card

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.

Scrapbookingncraft March\April 2020 DT Project

Hello Fellow Alchemists

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.

Watch for the code

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!

Thinking of you

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.

shiny dimension

The sentiment is chipboard also from Scrapbookingncraft covered in spun sugar oxide and wink of Stella then clear embossed three times.

There be dragons
Squeezed Lemonade and Barn door

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.

Dragon card

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.

Hello Friend

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.

Mixed Media Canvases

Hello Fellow Alchemists,

Today I am sharing with you four canvases that I made a couple of months ago. There is an elephant, a butterfly one, a mermaid one and a steam punk cogs and gears one. The elephant was super quick but the others to ages as my indecisiveness got in the way, lol.

For the butterfly MDF circle I used a Kaisercraft butterfly stencil with Liquetex modelling paste. I gessoed with Aldi Primer and then misted various pink and purple Distress Sprays and Dylusions. I used a Kaisercraft stamp in the background with archival ink. Then I cut letters with a Kaisercraft alphabet and layered them up 3 or 4 times and rubbed over them with Hydrangea Inka Gold. Finishing up with a few pearls. The big butterfly is from a Tim Holtz die set.

Butterfly Canvas

The next canvas is 5″ x 7″ and was nice and quick to do. I used a Kmart Stencil in the background and some Jo Sonja Black Gesso to cover the canvas. The elephant chipboard is from Scrapbookingncraft. In the background and on the elephant is Prima Antique Brilliance. I then added a couple of black rhinestones to add dimension to the eyes.

Elephant Canvas

The next two canvases have multiple layers and are more complicated. The Mermaid again uses chipboard from Scrapbookingncraft, the mermaid and the bubbles. Distress and Dylusions sprays have been used over a spotty stencil and the chipboard was painted with Prima Opal Magic. The little bubbly balls are Prima art stones coated in distress spray then coated with Inka Gold in colours as closely matching as possible to give them a little shine. I used some random bits I had in my stash to decorate, a metal turtle charm, a starfish, a real shell and a piece of coral from a Kaisercraft wood embellishments pack and they have been gessoed and painted with opal magic.

The ones that took the longest!

And finally the most ambitious one. A steampunk industrial fiesta lol. Again I used various cogs and pipes chipboard pieces from Scarpbookingncraft. I also used the Tim Holtz bigz cogs die, Ideaology metal cogs and Kaisercraft Wooden Flourishes cogs. To this I also added an Ideaology key, sentiment banner and accoutrement button. The large circle pieces are repurposed earrings and everything has been coated with white gesso then misted with Dylusions and Distress sprays. Both the pipes and cogs background stencils are from Kaisercraft.

Industrial Steampunk Canvas

Sorry for the really long post lol, it was a lot to fit in! I can’t pick a favourite between the Mermaid and the Industrial Steampunk Canvas. Let me know in the comments which of the four you like best. If I’ve missed an item or you have a question comment bellow. Hope you’re doing some arty crafty alchemy yourself, thanks for stopping by.

Scrapbookingncraft Halloween Collab Week 2

  1. Hello fellow Alchemists,

It’s week two of the Scrapbookingncraft Halloween collab using the chipboard shapes I showed last week. A bunch of lovely ladies are getting their Spooky Halloween vibes going and I will link them all below. Please check them out, they are all very talented!

The Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel dies are really easy to use, the hardest part was choosing which papers to use… I chose some ghosts and eyeballs from the DCWV Spooky Halloween stack. I die cut the ghosts with one of Lawn Fawns Meadow Borders and then with the Reveal Wheel die to make it the right size. Something I had seen on the Lawn Fawn YouTube channel.

I cut the eyeball paper with the Reveal Wheel die and layered the grass at the bottom. Then I misted the cat’s shape onto watercolour paper (probably why the shimmer disappeared) with Tim Holtz Black Soot followed by Heidi Swapp’s Colour Shine. I fussy around it and glued it slightly under the grass.

Halloween Reveal Wheel Card

I used stamps from Lawn Fawns Reveal Wheel Holiday Sentiments set to stamp the  wheel. After that I also stamped a sentiment on black cardstock with an embossing pad and used white embossing powder. Everything surrounding the Reveal Wheel is popped up on foam tape. Watching Lawn Fawns tutorial helped me get it right.

I hope you enjoyed this collab, please check out the other ladies linked below. Hope you are creating your own arty crafty alchemy. Bye for now.
