Floral Mixed Media Card

Hello everyone, it is Linda here. Today and I am sharing a Floral Mixed Media card with you.  With so many beautiful products at my fingertips, these cards are fun to create – the only problem being – when to stop adding products!

I have combined stamping, color sprays, chipboard, flowers, butterflies and sequins – this card is basically a ‘party waiting for somewhere to happen!’

Apply  teal and red inks to the stamp using a sponge dauber and stamp onto white card stock.  Trim around the image leaving a small white border – this is the card front.

Remove the lid from the Color Splash – Lemon Zing, lightly tap the tube to splatter the Color Splash over the stamped image, making sure it is applied to the flower centres.

Colour the Primed Chipboard – Floral Gallery using red,blue and yellow inks, a number of coats may need to be applied depending of the depth of colour you are wanting to achieve. Color the sentiment using red ink.

Glue the  Primed Chipboard – Floral Gallery and the Primed Chipboard – Birthday Wishes sentiment to the card base. Wind red twine around the lower portion of the card front twice and secure with a bow.  Sponge around the petals of an aqua flower, add any details using a White Paint Pen.  Glue the flower to the centre of the bow. Glue Sequins Medley – Pink Sherbert to the centre of the flowers and randomly on the card front.

Sponge around the wings of an Handmade Butterfly – Aqua using teal ink.  Glue near the top left hand corner of the card front.  Add details to the wings using a White Paint Pen.  Pop the card front to the  Plain Cards – Ivory, using foam tape.

Recycled Packaging Tag Book

Hello everyone,

It is Linda here. I am back to share a fun tutorial today – using some of the beautiful packaging from Little Birdie Crafts products – they are too pretty to throw away …

I decided to create a tag book, making the most of the different tags – it is such a fun project and also uses up those little bits that are too pretty to throw away and gather so quickly on our desks.

I have used Little Birdie Crafts handmade embellishments, paper packs, flowers, butterflies and more – so many beautiful Little Birdie Crafts products to choose from.

Start by gathering the packaging you have saved, varying sizes are perfect – it makes the album more interesting.  On all the tags use pieces of patterned paper to cover any wording on the tag – do not cover the whole tag, just the wording.  The aim is to have some of the packaging showing as it is so pretty.

For the first tag I have used Succulents Garden Paper,  along with Cactus Pots.  The sentiment has been hand-cut from the Succulents Garden Paper, The pink flowers are from a pack of handmade embellishments. The fence is from Bloom Fence – Blush.

The second tag has also used Succulents Garden Paper,  Succulent Wreath Embellishments,  Cactus Pots and handmade embellishments.

Each tag is a collage of papers and embellishments from those listed below, but each one is unique.

Images from the Succulents Garden Paper have been hand-cut and added to the tags.  Handmade Embellishments and 3D Stickers have also been added – some have been trimmed to add just a little touch and others added whole.  Ricrac from my stash has also been added.

A small hole has been punched at the top of each card, in the centre and then they are all added onto a ring – the smallest at the front up to the largest at the back.  Ribbon is threaded through the top and secured with a bow,

The tags are great together as a collection and a piece of ‘art from the heart’, or can be used as gift tags, even added to the front of a card base to create a very quick card – the possibilities are endless.

What a Scene – Z-Fold Card

Hello it is Linda here from ‘Down Under’,  thanks so much for stopping by!

I am excited to be back and sharing another project with you – a  Scenic Z-Fold Card  – using patterned papers, chipboard, flowers, stickers and so much more – there is a list below!

Using a white card base, measuring 15cm x 10cm making sure the fold is on the side. Fold the card front in half with the edge on the left side of the card, to form a ‘Z -Fold’.  Cut three pieces of light blue Aqua Medley Paper Pack to fit on the three sections of the card base and attach using double sided tape.

Tear three narrow sections of corrugated cardboard  and attach them to the card base using strong tape, making sure to leave a small gap where the fold is, to ensure the card base folding propery,

Next, tear a 20cm strip of green cardstock,  this will create one long strip of grass to use as the base for the fence.   Cut the side tabs off the Chipboard Shapes Picket Fence, joining the pieces by adhering the end picket over the first on the second piece of fencing using liquid glue. Glue the fence to the  grass;  score the grass/fence section at 10cm and 15cm.  Lay across the card base, but do not adhere at this time, Fold the Chipboard Shape – Picket Fence in at the 10cm score line and out at the 15cm score line.

Add a Blossomy Borders – Gaiety  along the base of the Picket Fence, layer groups of Birthday Blooms on the left hand panel.

Cut one piece of paper from the Texture Brew Paper Pack to 13 cm x  9 cm.  Lay the Flowery Arch Window over the top and use the inside lines to draw a template, cut out the window slightly larger than the template.  Glue the Flowery Arch Window onto the patterned paper from the Texture Brew paper pack.  Adhere a flower to the lower left corner of the  window,  replace the pink flower with a  Beaded Blooms – Arctic Ice  Adhere to the right hand panel,  with the lower edge overlapping slightly onto the corrugated cardboard.

Adhere the chipboard – Picket Fence to the left panel and and to the right half of the right panel.  Adhere the flowers in a jar from the Birthday Blooms onto the right hand end of the chipboard – Picket Fence.

Glue the chipboard – BirdieTalk to the top of the long section of  the picket fence  – next to flowers.  Glue one ‘BirdieTalk’ chipboard to the lower edge of the window.

Adhere a piece of foliage from the Herbage to both the first and second panels.  Adhere flowers onto the Herbage Fern  followed by the Happy Birthday sentiment to the top of the first panel and a Spring Beaded Butterfly to the third panel.
