Christmas cards and a mixed media canvas from Zanka

Today I'm gonna show you some of my first Christmas cards made for this season. They are all based on the same idea and composition but I played with the whole colour scheme of Vintage Christmas line - so I have the green, the red and a combo of both .
All cards are decorated with a mix of plain and glittered or embossed chipboard pieces and trust me, there are no dimensional flowers - only cut outs from the BFS papers! It's easy to create an illusion of dept with the layers of embellishments, while the cards are relatively flat and easy to post.

Supplies: papers Vintage Christmas, BFS glitter Pyrite, BFS embossing powder Cotton pink, chipboards : Blue fern frame (piece) , Floral lattice bits, Garden lattice bits, Twiggy branch, Mini flourishes.

My last November project is a mixed media canvas - I had a blast with this one, layering the paper strips, laces, chipboards and embellishments. Chipboard pieces are brushed with a white texture paste.

Supplies: papers Vintage Christmas, Frolic. BFS mists: Cotton candy, Winter mint. Chipboards Swirly circle, Garden lattice bits, Ironwork edges.

Thanks for staying here for a moment & have a great day!

Sandi's November Inspiration!

Hello, Blue Fern Studios fans! 
I'm here today to share my November projects ... I love sharing what I've created with all these amazing products! 

"Born to be Wild"

First up, I just HAD to scrap this new, funny photo of my granddaughter, Peyton! 
She has such a "goofball" personality that we adore! So, I just had to find a way to incorporate it with my Blue Fern Autumn Anthology papers. I've used Parfumerie as my base and layered in Newsworthy,  Gazebo and Calling Cards. 

The title chippy was first primed and then lightly inked. When that was complete, I used our new Petal embossing powder.  I went for all-out shine this time around. 

You can also see some of the Essential Textures stamping in the upper left corner of this photo.  It is fantastic to work with and adds such depth and interest. 

I'm a big fan of framing my photos, so this new Double Swirl chipboard was an easy choice! 
It was primed and then misted with our Imagine Ink mist in Leaf.  I gave it some variegation with my ink pad.  The Bits of Honey chipboard was left raw except for a touch of gesso for highlighting. 

I love dimension and all these products work together to help achieve that goal.

"The Most Wonderful .."

Next, I decided upon a celebration theme .. New Years Eve, 2014. 
This wintery Christmas Vintage Auld Lang Syne was an obvious choice but so soothing to use! It's neutral background can go so many ways.  I layered, tore and fussy cut using Wonderland and Greeting Cards as well. 

Of course, I had to make it my own with my Imagine Inks in Winter Mint and Leaf. For shine, I used the new Pyrite Glitter. 

My chipboard was all treated the same. I like the cohesiveness that gives a project. It was primed with white gesso and then dabbed thoroughly with Glossy Accents and Diamond Dust. Gives it a real wintery, frosty look .. like glistening snow. The new Blooming Curls chipboard is so unique. I've just been waiting to find the perfect project. 

This is a good close-up of some of the stamping used to provide depth and interest. 

Blue Fern Products Used:

Winter Mint




This one you have already seen when we first introduced the Christmas Vintage collection. 
The Noel paper was treated with clear gesso and then super heavy gesso with a stencil. Imagine Ink in "Winter Mist" was misted and spread with water to enhance the stenciling. The "Carribean" glitter was then scattered over the background paper for lots of shine. 

The chipboard pieces were all primed with gesso and then coated with the Imagine Ink in "Winter Mint" ( Snow Medley), "Leaf" (Eclectic Hearts), "Jingle Bells" (Garden Window) and "Cotton Candy" plus "Persimmon" (Wish, Wonder, Dream).  The Snow Medley piece was enhanced with "Fern" embossing powder, the Wish with "Poinsettia" embossing powder and the Eclectic Hearts with "Lucky" embossing powder. The Garden Window was misted with "Jingle Bells," then dusted with "Pyrite" glitter. 

Paper layers were cut and placed behind the Window. Flowers and bling were added as a final touch. 

Here are some close-ups:

Vintage Christmas with Video Tutorial by Marilyn Rivera

Hello everyone!  Marilyn here with you today sharing two projects and a video tutorial using the new collection Vintage Christmas.  I had a lot of fun playing with the new Blue Fern products glitter, embossing powder and mist.
For my first project, I chose the Sparkle Wreath and the Word Ornaments chipboards that I gave a coat of gesso and then I misted with the new Imagine Ink- Cotton Candy, you will see all my creative process in the video tutorial.

I used the Vintage Christmas-Noel paper and I loved the back side that has gold and red color tones that mix perfect with the mist, glitters and embossing powders.

Supplies list:
Vintage Christmas-Noel
 Imagine Ink-Cotton Candy
Imagine Ink- Glitters- Phoenix, Pyrite
 Sparkle Wreath, Word Ornaments-chipboards
Stamp- Textures 1

Now enjoy the video tutorial!!

"A Moment in Time"
 My second project is inspired in the beautiful November sketch designed by Michele Singh.

I selected The Magical and Deck the Halls papers to make this page about my nieces with the beautiful French Ironwork and for my title the "A Moment in Time" chipboard. I embossed both chipboards with the Petal- embossing powder that has glitter and create a nice effect on the chippies. 

I placed the French Ironwork chipboard behind my photos.

After I embossed my title I distressed the edges with a pen marker. 

I punched the paper and draped one of the paper to create a design inspired in the sketch.

Supplies list:
Vintage Christmas: Magical and Deck the Halls papers
French Ironwork chipboard, A Moment in Time Chipboard
Imagine Ink- Embossing Powder- Petal

Lots of Blue Fern Studios goodness with Bente.

Hi there friends of Blue Fern Studios.
 I am so happy you came to see what I have prepared for you this time :-) Winter is now definitely upon us and what more perfect collection to use for those crisp winter photos than the beautiful Vintage Christmas.

My first page showcases a couple of older photos of my youngest daughter as I wanted to scrap pictures with snow .This year it hasn't snowed yet :-) Sorry the pictures are not great. It's pretty dark up here in the Nordic countries at the moment :-) 

I used the Holiday Vine chipboard and the title Sparkle is from the Winter Titles set.

Here are a couple of close ups:

I used the Petal embossing powder as well as the Pyrite glitter to embellish my page.

My next project is an alterd frame. It was so much fun to make.

 I painted one of the  words from the Delight set and also one of the Vintage Labels. 
The perforated arrow is from the Directions set. The paper collection is Autumn Anthology.

To top off this creation I used the beautiful Ornate Shelf as something similar to a roof.

This next layout you may recognize as it was part of this months sketch reveal  HERE.

Even here I used Vintage Christmas. The French Ironwork-chipboard behind my photos is such a stunning piece! This time I painted it gold and used one of the Blue Fern Studios Texture stamps
 to emboss it.

 I used a mixture of hnd made and bought flowers.
Of course I used the Vintage Christmas papers even for the flowers! :-)

And then my last  page for today,also with the latest collection and some more fabulous chipboard!

I used the Chain link panel ,just lightly covered in gesso and the Framed Winter Words with some added glitter. Here is a closer look at some details :

Again I used a mixture of store bought and handmade flowers using the beautiful red Deck the Halls sheet

I love the look of the chipboard panel peeking out from behind the beautiful paper :-)

That was all for today, well done if you made it all the way to the end!!

I wish you all a wonderful wek end. I knowI am really looking forward to some free time!
Thanks for looking!!
