Artist Trading Cards

Hi everyone

It’s Sarah here and today I am going to share with you three ATC’s. I used papers from the ‘Boho Dreams’ collection.
It is a collection with very joyful colors. That makes it perfect for making pretty cards for beautiful occasions.

Hard Cover Journal with Soft Touches

I love making and using soft cover journals, but I also love the durability of a hard cover. So for today’s project, I’m bringing them together to make a hard cover laminated journal with lots of fabric touches to give it a soft cover feel!

I used some pretty papers from the Boho Dreams collection and the Lime Colour Splash to make some perfectly matching cotton lace for the closure.

I laminated two of the papers to make a cover for a Traveller’s Notebook style journal where I could add some inserts from my own stash that seemed to match perfectly!

It was all so easy that I even added a cute little matching bookmark.

I sprayed some plain ivory cotton lace with the Lime colour splash to get the perfect green (I think it’s my favourite part of the whole journal!) and added some rhinestones for a little sparkle and shine.

If you want to see how quick and easy it is to make this fun project, check out the video below for step by step instructions.

If you’d like to make your own hard cover journal with a soft cover feel, here are the products I used:

Summery Slimline Floral Card with Video Tutorial

Hello dear Little Birdie Fans! It’s Tracey here with a new creation for you. Summer is just around the corner and those warm (hot) temperatures have arrived along with beautiful vibrant flowers coming into full bloom which inspired me to pull out the gorgeous Boho Dreams collection filled with amazing yellows, corals, and pinks!!

Slimline cards are trending these days, so I thought I’d use this popular format to create this summery card filled with gorgeous Little Birdie flowers, chipboard, and mixed media products.

I hope you’ll join me to view this video tutorial and explore how to use paints and waxes to beautifully color resin, add a lovely finish to chipboard with embossing enamel, arrange gorgeous flowers and embellishments to fill a slimline card while creating dimension, and add sparking texture to flowers.

Tips and Techniques

This lovely resin butterfly is painted with Little Birdie’s new Multisurface paints paired with Tinted metallic paint and Metallic wax.
This gorgeous cluster includes these Boho Vibes flowers: Wendy; Francisca; Marisa; and Elira; along with Celebrate Life: Kimberly and Marisa.
Shimmery highlights are added to the flowers with Golden Glaze Tinted Metallic Paint, and sprinkled with Gala Pink and Summer Gold Metal Microbeads along with prills and glitter shards from my stash. Soft Acrylic Matte Gel Medium is used to adhere them in place.
This doily sentiment is fussy cut from the Boho Vibes 6×6″ paper set. A portion of a Little Birdie Primed Chipboard Dreamcatchatcher along with this fabulous Especially Cogs gear are finished with embossing enamel.
This chipboard feather is also heat embossed. The layered and distressed paper is from the Boho Dreams collection.
One final view to show the depth and dimension on this lovely slimline card.
