Frame Greeting Card

Hello friends! It’s Silvia here, with a new project that I want to share with you! On this occasion I have gone completely out of my comfort zone, and I have decorated this beautiful frame, which I wanted to dedicate to my little ones. They had their birthdays during this confinement, so it has not been possible to celebrate the occasions, but I have made this beautiful birthday frame card, so they never stop dreaming. I used Caribbean Teal metallic paint to paint the frame, cut-out elements from the Boho-dreams collection, with which I made a beautiful 3D montage, layer by layer. In the background I used papers from the Birds & Berries collection, chipboard and finally of course the wonderful Little Birdie flowers, which I like so much. I hope you like it and I wish you a nice day!

Love Banner Featuring True Love Collection

 

Hello friends, Maggi here and I am so delighted to share my first project as a designer for Little Birdie Crafts!
Since it is February, I thought a ‘LOVE’ banner would be perfect to show you and Little Birdie some LOVE!  Banners are great decorations for all occasions.
I used a new collection from Little Birdie, True Love, for my banner along with chalk paint, Color Splash, and of course, lots of gorgeous Little Birdie flowers!
I used square tags for my banner and simply layered on pieces of design paper and some of the punch out doilies included in the collection.
To create my letters, I used some old sponge letters stamps that I’ve had forever and stamped with Little Birdie’s Rose Blush Chalk Paint onto design paper.  After the paint dried, I went around the letters with a white paint pen so that the letters would stand out.  Then I popped up the letter with cardboard to create dimension.
I used Little Birdie Colour Splash mist and a stencil to add hearts to the background on this tag.
I used a pretty satin ribbon to string all my tags together.  Before I added the flowers, I glued on a leaf vine ribbon which I think looks so pretty layered over the pink check satin ribbon. I used small clothespins to clip some of the scalloped doilies to the ribbon.
My favorite part of any project is adding the flowers. Little Birdie Crafts has so many beautiful ones to choose from!  I like to use different sizes and colors when I’m embellishing with flowers.

 

This is my favorite flower that I used with this project. I adore the yellow center and the yellow rosebud peaking off on the side.  One thing I really love about Little Birdie’s flowers is that so often the flowers are layered with leaves.

Watercolor Latte Cup

This cute latte cup is just the right size for holding candies or treats at a tea party themed event. It also makes a great gift card holder, or catchall for small jewelry, craft supplies or other trinkets.

What You’ll Need:

Step 1: Apply Ric Rac trim to the bottom of the cup, as shown.

Step 2: Apply a bit of string to serve as the line for the “tea bag” portion of the cup decoration.

Step 3: Embellish the cup with Micro Flowers in an arrangement that is pleasing to your eye.

Step 4: Apply small pom pom trim around the perimeter of the cup, like this trim from Expo International.

Step 5: add embellishments as well to the tea bag. I love these pretty passion colored micro flowers.

Step 6: Add embossed daisies to the side of the cup. This shade of aqua provides a stunning contrast on the cup, and the gold metallic centers of the flower add just the right amount of shimmer.

Step 7: A cascade of Helena Roses in pink add whimsical charm to the decorative tea cup.

Step 8: Gold sequin melange is a great way to add sparkle and shine to this look. I love the way the mix comes in different sizes.

Step 9: Last, place a watercolor Latte sticker inside the cup and fill with your favorite treats!

Thanks for stopping by, and remember to celebrate everything!
