Christmas Cards

Hello everybody Kasia here… This is the time of the year when I realise I need to make few Christmas cards for my friends and family. This year’s AB studio Secret Wood Christmas papers were just perfect for this.

Firstly I fussy cut all the elements.

I prepared my layers – black and gold and silver mirri card. I used my sewing machine to create the stitch border.

I distressed the edges using oxides  faded jeans and vintage photo.

I layered up my fussy cut elements and added some sisal, gauze and lace to add more texture. You can find some great items like this for adding texture in the trimmings bags

Some of the background were stamped with musical notes stamps by Kaisercraft.

I added chipboard sentiments.

I still wanted those cards to be flat and ready for posting. I used 7inch square blanks and matching envelopes. I enjoyed making those cards but I need more. I will be back soon with some more Christmas cards ideas.

Mixed Media Cards – Grace

This week I was in need of some cards to send to people, and it’s been ages since I’ve made any mixed media cards – so I thought why not use my beautiful design team kit to make some?

 

I based the designs around the 13 Arts Summer Rhapsody paper pad, and used lots of goodies from my kit, and from previous kits, to create the backgrounds and to embellish.

For the background I used Fabrika Decoru Shabby Velour Paint, and Fabrika Decoru Chameleon Paint. I also added splatters with Fabrika Decoru Chalk Spray, and Distress Oxide Spray in Victorian Velvet.

 

The fabrics, trim,  and flowers are all available in kits – fabrics and trim as part of lucky dip kits, and flowers as part of the flower mixes available in the store.

 

To see the full process of how I made these, you can watch the accompanying YouTube video here.

Shabby Chic Wedding Card

Hello everybody,

Hope you are having a good carfty October…

I am …

Today I want to share with you my DL card in a box for a special wedding occasion.

I used beautiful paper from AB papers Shabby love Symphony… 

I started with cover the base of my card and box with same sheet of paper from that pad. I prepared chipboards flourish from creative embellishments… I used chameleon metalic from Fabrika Decoru. As my chipboard was dark (brown) my paint came out as more gold than pink. You will get more pink shade on white base… but that’s the magic of those paints…

I fussy cut lots of flowers and leaves from the same paper collection… I stained the edges using distress oxides with sponge tool.

I added some texture to the background using prima stencil and white texture paste…

The cake stamps were coloured with prima water colour paints… The cake stamp is from my stash as it matched the team of my project perfectly I just had to use it…

When I had all embellishments ready I started layering…

Please remember to lift some of your paper embellishments using left over chipboard bits or cardboard…

I added the sentiment and personalised the card with names and date later on…

Hope you enjoyed my project…

Have a good day,

Crafty hugs
