Live The Moments – Scrapbook Layout

Hey there crafty people! Welcome back to the Little Birdie blog, Melissa here with you today and I have a new layout to share with you.

For the bottom of this layout I used the orange card stock from the ‘Woodland Stories’ collection; for the top of this layout I used floral card stock from the ‘Watercolor Floral Ballet’ collection, which I lightly distressed the bottom of and for the matting of my photo, I used a small piece of card stock from the ‘True Love’ collection, which I cut out using a metal die.

Between the top and bottom card stocks, I attached some burlap to break them up a little.

I did some stenciling on my background, using white gesso and I used the ‘Poppies & Roses’ elements around my photo.

I then attached some beautiful red flowers & roses and a couple of yellow ones to cut through the red a bit.

I coloured a chipboard border & the chipboard title using ‘Glimmer Moss’ wax and Matt chalk acrylic paint in ‘Lemon Chiffon’ & ‘Wild Wasabi’ and I coloured some chipboard flower pieces using ‘Lemon Zest’ sparkle paste.

To finish off this layout, I added some glitter paint to some of the red flowers to make them sparkle and some clear crystal drops to the chipboard pieces to make them glossy.

All products used on this layout are from Little Birdie, except the stencil, crystal drops & glitter paint (see product list below).

I hope you liked this layout and are inspired to try something similar. I will be back again very soon with some more crafty inspiration. Until then…happy crafting! 🙂

It’s All About The Good Times

 Hello Crafty Friends!

I’ve got a very cool stained glass looking card for you today.  I learned something new recently where you take ink that has been diluted with water and you transfer it using a piece of plastic to your project.  I adore the “outside the lines” feel that it gives.

For my card, I used this fabulous background stamp from Little Birdie Crafts called Whimsical Garden.  The line art design of this image is very appealing to me and lends itself to many creative uses.  Here I heat embossed the design using Versamark ink and black embossing powder.

I then took several colors of Distress Ink and layered them on my design, drying in between colors so I wouldn’t get too much of a muddy blend in any one place.  I love how the colors, similar to watercolor, just ever so softly blended together.

I used the Metallic Paint in Silver Charm to add some accents to areas of the flowers and leaves in the design to highlight and add some sparkle.  I mounted my background to a piece of turquoise paper from the gorgeous “Songs of the Sea” 6×6 paper pack and brushed some ink on the edges of that cardstock in the color Mermaid Lagoon.  Then everything got glued onto a piece of black card stock.

For the greeting, I used one of the stickers in the embellishments pack called “Good Time” and because they come in a natural and white color, I brushed some ink on the white are that would accent the light green I used in my background.  I also added some of the Metallic Wax in silver glitz to the outside so that my greeting would blend in with my card.  

Lastly, just a few drops of the Pearl Drops in the color Candy Glaze and my card was complete.  I can’t wait to try this again with some other color combinations – what a fun stamp!
