Happy 21st Birthday Card by Tania

Hello again everyone! I'm just back from a holiday overseas and it was so great to get back to my desk and make something!!! Not that I didn't have a great holiday!

So, today, I am off to a 21st Birthday Celebration and made a card using some very awesome Memory Maze Chipboard pieces! 

Vintage frame 001 11x14cm BULK 5 PACK unpackaged

This 1st piece, VINTAGE FRAME, I used as a stencil! (See below!)

So the first thing to do, is remove the centre frame piece from the frame, and save for another project. We are going to use the negative part of the chipboard as a stencil!!

Cut a piece of white cardstock, approx. 5.25 x 5.25". Place the negative piece of chipboard over the white card and spray with Black Marble Dylusions, ink, or other brand ink.

So. you end up with this cool background for your card.

Next, cut the chipboard triangle border piece into 3 pieces, like this:

First cut!

2nd cut from large piece!

Then, paint your chosen 2 pieces of chipboard with Black Paint.

I cut a 6 x 6" piece of coloured cardstock, and another piece of black card, slightly smaller, and used this for my base card, adhering the sprayed ink piece on top!

Finally, I decorated my card with the chipboard pieces and had fun with some die cuts and foils from Kaszazz.

I adhered the chipboard triangle pieces with some Glossy Accents!

I'm pretty chuffed with the end reult, just love the stenciled background and making the most out of the chipboard, negative pieces! I hope I have inspired you to think outside the square with your chipboard!

How beautiful is the font for the title.

I have used a triangle arrow border also as and accent.

Butterfly cards with Candy

Hello everyone .....
Its me again ... Candy. 
Today I am sharing with you my butterfly cards
that I have created with the Birds on a branch chipboard.

The card I have made measures 4x8 inches. 
The branch is from the birds on a branch chipboard.
I coloured the leaves with the Lindgrum metallic 3d paint
 and the branches with brown paint.
The paper butterflies I painted with the Hellblaw metallic 3D paint.
Just be careful if you are using paper flowers or butterflies as the are
very fragile and might fall apart.
So let them dry naturally.

I have made a 4x8 inch card base. 
Cut your pattern paper to measure 3 7/8 x 7 7/8 inches
and tape this to the base of your card.
I also roughed around the edges of the pattern paper.
Glue down the branch and add your butterflies, flowers and sediment.

An extra card for inspiration

{my little favourite}

Hi everyone Kylie here
sharing a super cute layout featuring one little cutie pie.......

I have created this bright background using my gel plate and yellow and grey acrylic paint with stencils once dry I used a hot pink paint through a mandela stencil I just loved how it turned out.

I used a black cardstock to matt my photograph this really makes it pop - I have used a patterned tissue paper, black tissue paper and some yellow netting to build the photo up.

To embellish the layout I have used assorted flowers to co-ordinate I have used the pink paint to tone one of the flowers a Pink Paisley arrow and some Heidi Swapp fringe and a cute black and white spotted heart.  To balance the layout I matched the pattern tissue paper, washi tape and yellow netting.

I have used the below Memory Maze frames - selected the frame I wanted to use which was the largest one and painted with black acrylic paint. I journaled on my layout and adhered the frame over my journalling. 

To complete the layout I used Black thread for machine stitching and assorted background stamps with black ink an some gold puffy hearts and stars adhered randomly in the top left and bottom right corner.

I hope you found some inspiration in this layout.....

{just the girls}

Hi Everyone - Kylie here..... 

Sharing with you another colourful creative background layout of course it is embellished with awesome 

To start I have created my 12" layout on white Marshmallow cardstock    assorted acrylic paints, stencils and Gelli Plate..... this sets the theme for my layout.

I love to frame my photograph with Black Cardstock it really frames the photo.

I selected the frame sized I wanted to use from the packet of 3 and painted it with black acrylic paint. 

Junky frames arrows 2 300 x 300 set of 3 

I adhered the photograph to the top of the chipboard frame I placed silver tulle underneath to create more texture. I added a Charms Creations fabric heart and Heidi Swapp Puffy Glitter Heart sticker to the bottom corner of the layout. I also randomly adhered puffy heart stickers around the layout along with assorted washi tapes and some plumbers tape.

To create the title I used a "Just the girls" sticker and a wooden Heidi Swapp "Memory" piece.

I have framed the layout with black machine stitching and added some random background stamping with black ink.

Last but not least I added my journalling to finish the layout.

I hope you ensued this layout - see you next time.....
