"Hearts" birthday card with Violet Love

hello crafty friends! It's Lynne here today with a dimensional card I created with the beautiful Violet Love collection by Studio75. I've been really enjoying hunting down interesting card designs to try with the lovely papers carried here at Scrap and Craft; I definitely want to adapt this one to a Christmas card design

Studio 75 Violet Love 12x12 paper pack
Adhesive pearls, pink

Other than a few adhesive pearls, I kept my embellishments flat so the card would fold flat enough to go into an envelope.

The paper is so delicate and pretty, and comes with a sheet of sentiments, so you can make a beautiful card for any occasion! I'd love to see what you create with Violet Love...have a wonderfully creative week xx

Mixed Media Art Brush with Silk Foam Flower by Tracey Sabella

Hello dear Scrap & Craft friends!

It's Tracey back to share a mixed media art brush featuring silk foam and chipboard from the Scrap & Craft Store. You can find details and close-ups below.

Tips and Techniques
This handcrafted flower is created with Silk Foam, shaped with the Metal Ball Tool Set, and colored with Distress Oxide inks. The white Mini Stamen are also from the store.

The Anemone Fabian Ornaments Chipboard and Artistiko Cog are heat embossed with pale gold embossing powder.

The wings are created with paper clay in a silicone mold, set aside to dry, then brushed with metallic paint and art wax. The metal "Art" piece is also brushed with metallic paint and wax. The brush has several layers of impasto and metallic paints along with gesso and art wax. I used Bambino Glue from the store to adhere regular and mini art stones around the cluster.

 This gorgeous Misz Masz Chipboard Butterfly is brushed with metallic paint and the edges with gold art wax. Bambino Glue is a great way to adhere microbeads for a textured body.

The handle of the brush is stenciled with light molding paste. The decorative metal piece is painted and waxed like the rest of the brush and centered with a coordinating rhinestone from my stash.

I hope you've been inspired to grab your Scrap & Craft supplies
and create something beautiful today.

Daydream Bookmark with Simona

Hello everyone! Simona's here with a new project for Scrap & Craft DT...
Finally my Summer holidays are about to start and one of my favourite things to do on the beach is to relax under the umbrella with a nice book, so I decided to create  a super cute and fast bookmark!

I cut  a 6,5 cm strip from a sheet of  a 30x30 cm WHITE CARDSTOCK, then scored in half, creased well and set aside. Then I have chosen two pages from 'DAYDREAM' 6x6 in. paper pad by Lemoncraft, and cut two strips from each page, slightly smaller than the base, to cover the four sides, and glued them with BAMBINO GLUE 45 gr. tube.

Then glued two small magnets on the inside for closure,  added sentiments stickers, and a beautiful chipboard DREAM-CATCHER by Scrapiniec, painted to match the papers used.

Very simple but romantic, thanks to those beautiful patterned papers...and now I am ready to show it off on the beach!

Here's the supplies used from SCRAP & CRAFT STORE:

- BAMBINO GLUE 45 gr tube

Thank you for stopping by...have a great Sunday and...see you next time!

Yellow roses

Hello crafty friends

It's Monika today with new post and this time I made flower composition out of silk foam. 
First I made the biggest rose by cutting all the petals by hand, it's a very simple and easy and you can see it on one of my old video tutorials ---> HERE
 Once all the petals were ready, I took yellow ink pad and just brushed the colour on the tips of each petal. Rolled and unfolded slightly to create petal like shape and look.

To make leaves I used universal leaf mould and pressed each hand-cutted leaf against it to create natural looking veins and brushed it with a touch of green ink.

For the centre of the roses I used yellow stamens.

Love & Friendship accordion album

Hi crafty friends! It's Lynne here with a cheery little album filled with quotes about love and friendship, made with the sweet and pretty Cherry Blossom collection from Studio75.

I had a bulletin board with these happy quotes and more on the door of t craft room, but I took them down when I needed the space for chipboard, and I missed seeing them, so I thought this little book would be a great way to showcase some of my favourites.
The album itself is the ATC Ticket Journal from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.

 I fussy cut some of the  flowers from the papers, and the larger flowers came from the 12x12 paper set. Some lace, ribbon and punchwork completed the pages, and I added some dimensional artificial flowers to the top page.

 I'm so glad you stopped by to see my latest project and I hope you enjoyed my collection of happy quotes; have a wonderful week, full of love and friendship!

"Fly" Mixed Media Card with Tracey

Hello dear Scrap & Craft friends!

It's Tracey back with a new project for you. The Craft O'Clock ~ Morning Dreams II paper collection has such gorgeous colors and fabulous images that can be fussy cut to embellish your projects. I've also used chipboard, stamps, organza trim from the Scrap and Craft Store.

Tips and Techniques
I selected delicate flowers to go with the soft colors on the gorgeous background paper and fussy cut flowers, then tucked in a single blossom from the Organza Rose Trim. I just adore this versatile trim that can be used in a strip or cut apart for individual flowers.

I treasure texture, so used Bambino Glue to adhere metal objects, Prills, diecut leafy flourishes, chunky glass glitter, microbeads, mica flakes, and rhinestones around the cluster and across the page.  Do you have a stash of found items like I do? It's so lovely to tuck in an odd found item or two into mixed media projects for a unique touch. I brushed them with metallic paint and art wax to fit in.

These fabulous Scrapiniec Steampunk Flying Hearts Chipboard Wings are heat embossed in pale gold, a perfect accent to the soft teal and pinks.

The background is stenciled with crackle paste, then spritzed with teal and white color mist. Once dry, white ink is spattered across for soft visual texture.

 I combined the Agateria Grill 3 Stamp with a flourish stamp from my stash to edge the top and bottom of the card. I thought this sentiment was just perfect to go with the chipboard wings in the cluster.

I hope you've been inspired to grab your Scrap & Craft supplies
and create something beautiful today.

Yesterday Memories... Mixed Media LO by Simona

Hello everyone and happy Sunday! Simona's here with some new inspiration with this Mixed Media Layout...
I love everything Vintage, so I thought that Sheet n.03 from the Studio75 Cherry Blossom 12x12 paper set would have been the perfect base for my project...I decided not to use too many colours in order to keep it simple and give the right importance to the cluster.

I applied Clear gesso on the paper, then started to stamp on the edges and add modeling paste for more texture and already said, kept my palette pretty simple, using only 2 colours: a vintage brown and a black, then splattering with white and black inks.

For my focal point I have ripped few strips  from the Cherry Blossom 6x6 paper pad, distressing the edges, then stamped few clocks images, fussy cut them, distressed and added to the cluster.
I have also used a beautiful Clock chipboard by The Mini Art, embossed it, cut it in 2 and glued it to the paper.
Then some thread, stickers and paper dolls to finish it off.
For a more vintage look I have added also some lace and this lovely organza rose trim.

These are the supplies from SCRAP & CRAFT Store:

- Studio75 Cherry Blossom 12x12 paper set
- Studio75 Cherry Blossom 6x6 paper set
- Studio75 Designer stencil - Marocco Clover 
- The Mini Art Clock with cogs chipboard
- Agateria Grille n.3 stamp
- Organza rose trim - ecru
- Bambino Glue gr.45 tube

Thank you for stopping by, hope you liked today's project! See you next time...

Pure Elegance-layout with Studio75 "The Berry Copse"

Hello there, dear crafty friends! It's Lynne here with a layout I created using the lovely "The Berry Copse" papers and a photo of  one of the beautiful statues my son has visited during his past few years living and going to school in China. I thought the colours set the photo off so well, and I added some paper flowers from the Scrap & Craft store and cut up one of the metal flowers to create leaves.

I flattened the flowers a bit and inked them with moss green ink to coordinate with the papers and the fussy-cut greenery. There were so many lovely floral bits to cut out and they added just enough extra dimension to my page. I used Martha Stewart border punches for my edges. I hope you like my page and I wish you a wonderful week!
