''Christmas Wishes'' - Set of ATC's for 2Crafty Chipboard with a Video Tutorial



My second project is these four ATC's made with several chippies
and Lindy's Stamp Gang mists and embossing powders.

You can see the procedure on my VIDEO...


2Crafty Chipboards used...
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars
Deer Head Set
Stellar Snowflakes
Chicken Wire Panel



I based my cards on the Mixed Media & Art December challenge.



And a closer look on the details...


I made the background with a white cardstock colored with ''Tibetan Poppy Teal'', ''Time Travel Teal'', ''Lucky Shamrock Green'' and ''Bayou Boogie Gold'' Lindy's mists.
I also made a little embossing on the modeling paste, which I had applied with a stencil, with ''King Midas Gold'' Lindy's embossing powder. 
To give an extra texture I added a little light paste here and there with a spatula.


 Then, I heat embossed the chipboard pieces of the ''Chicken Wire Panel'' with ''Desert Moon Copper Pine''. The ''Stellar Snowflakes'' with the ''Spanish Moss Green'' and the ''Deer Head Set'' chippies with the ''Cleopatra's Copper''. Half of the ''ATC Tiny Stars'' I used with  ''Cleopatra's Copper'' and the other half with the ''Spanish Moss Green'' Lindy's powder.


The stickers are from the ''Yeletide'' 7dots Studio collection.


 I added sisal in natural color and some micro beads in bronze with gel medium.


Lastly I added a few splatters with a white splash ink.


Well, that's all for today...

''Believe...'' (in Christmas spirit) - A Layout for 2Crafty Chipboard with a Video Tutorial


Hello my scrapy friends!
Today, I will share with you two projects and two video tutorials, I made for December Inspiration at 2Crafty Chipboard

The first one is a Christmasy layout designed with 7dots studio papers from
''Homegrown'' collection and Prima Marketing flowers.


I have also made a VIDEO TUTORIAL with the procedure.



I based my layout on December challenges over at 7dots Studio 
and at More Than Words challenge blogs. The word ''Traditions'' made my thing of Santa Claus... and for something handmade I used two resin embellishments.  




2Crafty Chipboards used on this project...
Stellar Snowflakes
Mini Reindeers
Glenda's Swirl
Xmas Mini Word Pack



Some close ups...

To design my background I used modeling paste with two stencils. Because I wanted to make an extra texture and I heat embossed the modeling paste before it gets dry with the ''Purely White'' Lindy's powder. And... I loved the result!!!
Then, I colored the background with ''Rudolph's Nose Red'' and ''Peony Scarlet Red'' Lindy's Stamp Gang mists and made a few splatters of ''White'' 13arts Splash ink to make it look like it's snowy. 


I heat embossed the the title and the ''Glenda's Swirl'' chipboard with ''Queen Sheba's Silver'' Lindy's powder. The ''Stellar Snowflakes'' and the ''Mini Reindeer'' chippies were also embossed with ''Angel Wings Ruby''.  


When everything were glued down, I added ''Frosted'' mica flakes and silver microspheres with gel medium to give my layout a wintery frosted feeling.


A final touch with some more white splatters and my snowy background was ready.

 Thank you for stopping by...

...and stay tuned for the second layout...

I wanted to give my page a frosty feeling so I used white gesso on my background paper and I heat embossed the modeling paste with ''Purely White'' Lindy's embossing powder to make an extra texture.


Then, I gave some color with the ''Baby blue eyes aqua'' and ''Salt water taffy'' Lindy's mists. Lots of 13arts white splash ink splatters and a little random stamping completed my frosty background.


 I heat embossed the title and the corner chipboard with ''Hibiscus rose orange''. The circle frame and the viney chippies were also embossed with ''Morning glory azure'' powder.
 

Some 13arts hologram glitter and art stones made my page look like it's snowy.

”Season’s Greetings” - DT Layout for Maja Design


Merry Christmas everyone!!!

May your Christmas be filled with lots of happiness, peace and love!

Today I'm up on the Maja Design blog and I have a layout to share with you. I used papers from the ''I Wish'' collection which matched perfectly the beautiful photo I found on Pinterest. Is there anyone who doesn't believe on Santa? I still believe... and this photo was just perfect for a Christmasy post. 
But, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.


 For my background, I used the ”I wish you a Happy Holiday” paper and I made the layers behide my photo with torn papers from the ''I wish we will deck the halls'', the ''I wish for a holly jolly Christmas''. I also placed some pieces from an old book and two photos from the ''I wish - Ephemera''.


I applied on the center of my paper white gesso and then I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Before it gets dried I heat embossed it with ''Purely White'' embossing powder. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists, ”Rudolph’s Nose Red” and ”Bayou Boogie Gold” with some water to make a watercolor effect. I also added some splatters with 13arts white splash ink.


I heat embossed the frame and the floral chipboards with ”Desert Moon Copper Pine”, the words and the dotted baubble chippies with ”King Midas Gold” Lindy’s embossing powders. All the chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing. The metal embellishments are ”Scrap Unlimited”.


As a final touch, I made some splatters with white splash ink and when dried I added some bronze microbeads.
