Mixed Media Cards with Katherine

Hello everyone!

Katherine here with a host of mixed media cards from Little Wonders and Sunshine Bliss.

Here they are all together - I had lots of fun with the die cuts and also some of the new stamps and inks.  I'll take you through all the cards.


On this card I had a play with Vicki Boutin's Set 1 ink set and the Traveler Stamp set.  I used the inks and stamps to create my own background paper - using the mint green, which is quite a pale color and the large compass stamp.  I then stamped another compass in the navy blue and the phrase "not all who wander are lost" in the turquoise blue.  Whilst the ink was drying I used the picture and chose some of the papers from the Little Wonders collection to use - you can see Elliot and Max.


I added some of the copper foiled star rub ons to add a little more sparkle, and coloured the stones with the Sugar and Frost mists.  I also tucked in gems, sparkly thread and a few sequins to add even more interest.


My next card started with the Dream Big frame from the Noteworthy collection in Sunshine Bliss, I then had a play with the Portrait Frames and Darling Doily dies, adding my layers on foam pads.  I used the Fanciful Flourishes stickable stencil and blush glitter paste, then layered up all my die cuts, adding some of the Think Pink gems and one of the Wood Shape Birdcages.



I was enjoying playing with all the cards and papers that I made another card too using some of my left-over die cuts.  The phrase on the Happiness paper really caught my eye, so I made this the focal point and then layered lots of the other papers behind, as well as a layer of the trellis die.  This is a fab little die - I cut it up so you couldn't see the square shape that it comes in and then added little pearls to each area where it crosses - I think this looks really effective.  


I thought I would leave you with this phrase.

Katherine

Explore Adventure Layout with Ulrika

Hi from sunny and beautiful Sweden!

Ulrika here to show you this layout I made with pictures of my two sons 14 years ago.

Little Wonders Layout Ulrika Wandler Jul16

I started with splashing on some Glimmer Spray. That blue, shimmering color is amazing!

Then I added some stamping with both some of the "older" stitched stamps, and some of the brand new ones from the Little Wonders collection.

Life Journey Mini Album with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends!

This time I used the most gorgeous Sunshine Bliss collection again and made a cute, card sized mini album that has a different binding from the previous one I made with another BoBunny collection.


This album has a folded spine and is great for bulky pages. Each page is actually done as a pocket and you can add whatever you want inside the pockets. It can be your favorite summer photo or the tickets to water park or even your kids drawing and you still have space to glue photos or ephemera  over the black pages if you wish to do so.

The cover was made with BoBunny Double Dot cardstock and then embellished with Sunshine Bliss cardstocks, layered chipboard, die cuts, stickers and BoBunny flowers.

The title of the album was done with this collection's thickers and a die cut and it's "Life Journey" as a main title and "Today is a perfect day to be happy" as a subtitle.




Here are most of page spread for you to see.

I used mostly paper cuts and stickers and on each page front. A quote was stamped using our new BoBunny stamp set-expressions. Each quote was stamped over a die cut cardstock piece with hot pink ink from American Crafts Vicki Boutin Mixed Media ink set. This is a pigmented ink and as such it was heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

The page edges were inked with the same ink and as this ink is highly pigmented you have to heat dry the edges (unless you want some mess that happened to some of my pages, but it looks pretty after all).


The pink left page is perfect for summer photos to add over it. So are all other left side pages that were left without any embellishments.






Thanks for being here with me today and see you in a month with new and exciting BoBunny releases!

Sunny Tags Sunshine Bliss Video Tutorial with Elena

Hello everyone!

Elena is here again.
This Summer is quite hot and sunny as usual in my place, so I am keeping playing with the sunny and bright Sunshine Bliss collection.

Tags_Sunshine_Bliss_Elena_July13_Image1.jpg


This time I decided to make the bright tags using the papers from the Sunshine Bliss collection and the Color Wheel Inks by Vicki Boutin.

Tags_Sunshine_Bliss_Elena_July13_Image2.jpg

I started with creating the layers on the tags, then I primed some areas with gesso and applied the inks using the soft paper towel, you can use the dry baby wipe too.

Tags_Sunshine_Bliss_Elena_July13_Image3.jpg

I mixed the colors of green - pink and yellow of the inks, so that they repeat the tones of the colors on paper

Tags_Sunshine_Bliss_Elena_July13_Image4.jpg

I made the layers in the tag using the die cuts from the Noteworthy pack as well some fussy cuts from the papers I made.

Home Sweet Home Embroidery Hoop with Katherine

Hello BoBunny fans!

I wanted to share some altered art using an embroidery hoop and the beautiful Sunshine Bliss papers to make a decoration perfect for any home.


There are lots of layers to this project, I started with Sunshine Bliss as my base, roughly cutting it to size and then I used some of the orange Vicki Boutin stamp ink from set 2 and teamed this with the Fanciful Flourishes stamps.  I added some Blush Glitter Paste using the Lots of Love Stickable Stencil and then set to work on the embellishments.


I find the easiest way to stitch words is to print out the phrase in your font and attach it to the paper using some washi tape.


Then using a foam base pin prick the words through the paper.  Once this is done the stitching is easy - I used 3 strands of embroidery thread.



I used lots of blossoms using some from Buttercup Bouquet and some from Natural Earth and Buttercup  Dahlia, and I added punched leaves from the Serene paper.  I added a few more words using the new Expression Stamps and mixed up the colours with the Vicki Boutin inks - I trimmed the print so I could add it amongst my flowers - the phrases in this set are beautiful.


I also added a few die-cuts - here you can see the Sweet Heart and Darling Doily dies as well as one of the elements from the layered chipboard.  Again I replicated the glitter paste and a little bit of stamping on this side of the hoop too.

I hope you've enjoyed the hoop, they make a great gift!
