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.

New Beginning – Mixed Media Canvas

Hello dear Little Birdie Crafts fans! It’s Tracey here with a new project to inspire you. I have a dear friend who’s going through a rough time recently, and I created this encouraging canvas for her. This sweet sentiment from the ‘Birds and Berries’ ephemera pack is just perfect because everyday is truly a new beginning. I just adore how easy it is to mix and match gorgeous Little Birdie flowers and embellishments to create such a beautiful arrangement.

I’ve used a variety of mixed media techniques to create the canvas background and to color and add texture to chipboard and resin embellishments. I hope you’ll enjoy learning with me as you view this video with lots of details and voice instructions.

Tips and Techniques:

Little Birdie Grainy Texture Paste is applied through the beautiful Fleur-di-lis Trellis Stencil and spritzed with Black Current and Grape Crush Color Splash. Once dry, I added a little script stamping with permanent ink and color is added to the edges.

This photos is at an angle so you can see all the dimension created by layering chipboard, resin, ephemera, and flowers. Metal Microbeads and tiny seed beads are adhered to the flowers and background with Soft Gel Medium to add texture.

A close-up showing the beautiful mix of Little Birdie Flowers including Birds and Berries: Celestina and Nancy; Celebrate Life Flowers, Wendy; Fairy Sparkle Flowers: Wendy and Elvina; Bouquet Mulberry Flowers; and Pearl Pink Micro Jewlled Florettes.

This Primed Chipboard Clock with Design and resin clock are highlighted with golden Glaze Paint.

Molded pieces are colored with Chalk Paint, Metallic Wax, and Gesso for a grungy effect.

This gorgeous Primed Chipboard Swirl Corner and Brick with Window pictured in the previous photo are colored with Color Splash and gesso.

I just adore the glittery shimmer on these Birds and Berries Ephemera pieces!
