May projects by France Ringuette

Good morning bloggers, It's my turn to showcase some fun projects made with various paper collections from Blue Fern Studios. Today, I'll be sharing with you, 2 cards and 2 layouts.

Project # 1 May Mother's day cards

Mother's day is just around the corner and I thought I would provide your 2 different cards that I made for my mother and mother in law.

First Card

For this card, I used papers from Homespun collection, Minis & Picturesque papers, Lace 10, Embossing Powders Cotton Candy, Flowers Christmas & Heartland blooms.

Second Card

For this card, I used the same paper collection, but added different elements like the use of the Honeycomb stamp set, 14 Karat Emblossing Powder, Barb's Medallion chipboard, Chesterville Blooms Flowers & Lace 4.

Layout #1: Cherish

This amazing picture was the inspiration for this next layout, my friend Brittany's daughter is just too cute for words in her peach tutu. I was inspired to use the Amber & Apricot collection for this layout.

From the Amber & Apricot collection I chose to use: Flora, Friendship & Tweet Melody papers

Under the photo I used the Amber & Apricot printed chipboard with a touch of colored cotton cloth. In my floral arrangements I used flowers from the Apricot Blooms & Harvest Lilies sets.

I decided to cut out the little bird and feathers from one of my papers to add onto the side of my picture. I love the softness it was bringing.

The Cherish chipboard is simply stained a bid darker for more contrast with the paper. You will also find under the Amber & Apricot flowers, an embossed image of the Weathered Doily Stamp in Baby Pink embossing powder.


Layout #2: Happy

I've had my heart set on crafting this beautiful picture of my niece with her family for a while now. When going thru my papers, I fell on Pacific Coast from the Wanderlust paper collection and knew that this was the perfect one for this picture.

I started by applying a coat of white gesso under my picture are to highlight the focus. Then added some touched of sepia stamping with the Remnants Collage Stamp Set

I used various papers from the Wanderlust collection to build my layers under my picture. I hear embossed in Breeze color the Happy chipboard title.

The chicken wire chipboard is painted in 2 different colors to give it an old look. 

The last step was to stamp some flowers, add a few drop of white gesso, and there you go an old feel kind of  layout.
