Motivational Cards

Hello Little Birdie Craft Friends! I hope you are all doing well.

Today I’m sharing with you my process on how I created these motivational cards using Little Birdie Crafts ‘Boho Dreams’ collection.

  • Step 1 – Cut up 1 piece of 12×12 Boho Dreams cardstock at 4″x3″. You’ll only need 4 pieces of these cut out pieces for this project but you can create more if you like.
  • Step 2 – Use the Floral Pattern stencil and some modeling paste to create some textured pattern.
  • Step 3 – Fill up all 4 pieces like so and wait for this to dry
  • Step 4 – Once dry, tear up some tulle fabric and glue it at the center of the paper.
  • Step 5 – Place large flowers at the center and add in smaller flowers around it for added detail.
  • Step 6 – Add statement pieces that motivate or inspire.

Optional: You can stop here or add in some light pink and some metallic paint onto the background and splatter on some color.

And you are done! You can give these out as gifts to friends and family who need a little encouragement and positivity thrown their way.

Wedding Bells

Hello Again Crafty Friends!

I have for you a sweet card that would be perfect for a bridal sower, wedding, or anniversary.

For this project, I started my background piece on watercolor paper using Brilliant Red Colourcraft Crystals.  After that dried, I added some Gesso using the Mandala Stencil across the center.  I also used some Versamark ink and the same stencil to add some superfine silver glitter from the ‘Silver Fiesta’ bling pack.

I used a sticker from the ‘Marriage Bells’ sticker pack for the cake image and the little flower and heart images.  I added one of the super cute butterflies that I painted with cream coloured chalk paint and more of the fine glitter.

The large flower needed some silver glitter as well so I added that to change the colour of the center from the original shade.

For the Love Story greeting, I used a piece of the primed chipboard “Wedding Bells” and coloured it using walnut cream chalk paint.  Before adhering it to my card, I added some of the silver metallic wax for contrast.

Lastly, I added some embellishments using some of the bright silver mirror pieces from the ‘Bling Fiesta’ pack and also some Pearl Drops in both – Dew Drop and Candy Glaze.

All of this was mounted to a light grey card base.

I hope you enjoyed my love story card and perhaps try some of these ideas on a project of your own.  Thank you for reading!  Enjoy!

Pretty Twine Box

Hi everyone, Tamara here with another great use for the ‘Boho Dreams’

paper pack, Little Birdie chalk paints and handmade flowers!

I realized recently that I had somehow gathered quite a collection of bakers twine and that I needed a better place to store it all. I found this little wooden box at the thrift store and knew that with a little work, it could be the perfect solution!

The first thing I did was paint the whole thing, inside and out with the pretty pink chalk paint from the Muted collection (newly restocked!). Then I created a new window by painting some sparkle decoupage glue right onto a laminating folder and then just ran it through my laminator.

I liked the sparkle effect so much that once I covered the box with the pretty papers from the Boho Dreams collection that I coated it all with a layer (or two) of that same decoupage glue.

Then I used the Color Splash inks to dye my paper doilies to match the beautiful handmade flowers. I added a few coloured rhinestones for a little extra sparkle.

And look at that…. it seems that I have room for a few more spools!!

I hope this fun little project helps you to see your craft storage in a new way and maybe you can give an old box a new life.

Here are the products I used:

Boho Dreams 12 X 12 Paper pad
Acrylic Matte Chalk Paint Set
Color Splash Ink Hot Pink
Color Splash Ink Lime Splash
Handmade Flowers Tulip Bouquet Boho

Have a great weekend!
