Cards for "LOVE" month - by Vicky Alberto

My name is Vicky Alberto (aka Simply Paper in the design world). After a 4-year break from being on design teams, I am thrilled to be designing for Blue Fern Studios for 2019... and that I finally get to renew my passion for paper art!  My blog address is http://simplypaperandcreativity.blogspot.com where I chat about my work, and share my various tutorials.  I describe my style as “a little shabby and a lot of chic”, with a vintage approach. 

I enjoy working with vintage/romantic style papers and adore adding distressed layers, doilies, lace, stamping, and putting lots of flowers and chipboard on my projects.  Therefore, Blue Fern is a match made in heaven for me... since they have it all and more!

Sometimes my projects feature handmade flowers and unique gift boxes (all of my tutorials are listed on my blog - quick links in the right sidebar).  Also, my full design gallery can be viewed at http://www.scrapbook.com/profiles/444271.html.  Now, enough about me and onto the beautiful elements I designed with this month...

The first card features a mix of the gorgeous Heartland and Homespun collections, plus love story adornments & 2 hearts set chipboards.  On the chipboard, I primed with gesso, glazed with a glass beads medium and then sprinkled BF pink embossing powder (before it dried).  Look at the gorgeous flowers and adhesive shapes that coordinate with the paper collections... wow Blue Fern makes designing so easy!  The only thing from my own "stash" is that cute heart paper doily.

The second card features once again a mix of the beautiful Heartland and Homespun collections, plus love letters chipboard.  On this chipboard piece, I simply randomly dabbed gesso to leave exposed raw chipboard.  I then dabbed a bit of clear glue and quickly sprinkled blue BF embossing powder (before it dried).  The only thing from my "stash" is the circle paper doily.  More gorgeous BF flowers that perfectly matched this project are featured here! 

Thanks for taking the time to view my projects today.  I cannot wait to create more and share new projects soon.  Blue Fern is a real treat to design for since there are so many amazing elements to design with, that all perfectly coordinate.  Blue Fern is truly one stop shopping!
