Quick Card for a Wedding

Hi there creatives!

I want to share a card I made for a friend’s wedding. The Amor Mio Paper collection from Little Birdie Crafts is perfect for wedding cards and layouts.  I used the Pale Gold Fairy Dust to add some glamour and splattered with my favourite: Golden Glaze Tinted Metallic Paint!

Here are a few close-ups of the card:

‘Perfect Together’ Scrapbook Layout

Hi there Creatives!

Ezme here today. The vibrant colours of the Aqua Medley Collection are one of my favourites from Little Birdie Crafts!

For this single page layout, I chose to use a white card-stock background with some mixed media elements.

This is how I created the layout:

I adhered the white card-stock to one of the Aqua Medley patterned paper. I trimmed the card-stock 0.5″ smaller. I painted the background first with Gesso and then added a little watercolor paint.

The Silver Sage Sparkle Paste is one of my favourite sparkle pastes, and so is the Script Stencil. I added the Sparkle Paste to add more layers to the background.

I toned the paper down with white Gesso to use as layering behind the photograph.

The flowers needed some sparkle too, so I repeated the Silver Sage Sparkle Paste on the stamens and toned the green leaves down with white Gesso.

The chipboard embellishment was painted with Terracotta Chalk Paint.

The different sized patterned paper layers were adhered with Gel Medium and I also used the heavy bodied Gel Medium to adhere the Sisal behind the photograph. The photograph was raised on two layers of cardboard.

I created my own embellishments with glass domes and images from the patterned paper. I adhered the dome with gel Medium, let it dry and then cut it out with a small sharp scissor.

The small butterflies were fussy cut from the Aqua Medley embellishment page and the rust ribbon is from my stash.

Greeting Cards with Fairy Sparkle

Hello again creative friends,

Ezme here with you today! This month we have so many family birthday celebrations, I decided to make some quick and easy greeting cards. I like the DL size. It looks very elegant and I always have DL envelopes in my drawer. I also quite like the feminine  Fairy Sparkle paper collection for the cards as it is mostly females celebrating birthdays this month.

I used white card-stock for the base of the cards. I cut it them 19.8cm x 21cm and scored the on 9.9cm leaving me with a 9.9cm x 21cm card. Perfect to fit into a DSL envelope. I also cut 3 pieces from the purple paper as a matte. (9.3 cm x 20.5cm) and 3 pieces with some flower detail measuring 8.8cm x 19.9cm.

The chipboard frames and title was coloured with the Antique Gold wax.

I painted other two titles with some white Gesso.

Every card is different. I arranged the gold frames and titles and embellished with cheesecloth and flowers.  I splattered the white areas with gold paint. (Golden Glaze Tinted Metallic Paint)

The titles  looked a bit bland so I added a little natural Mica powder for some sparkle.

Here are a few close-ups:
