Blue Fern Studios - Love

Hey friends! I'm here with my third layout for Blue Fern Studios this month. I really enjoyed playing with the brand new Garden Life collection. I hope you'll get your hands on some of it for yourself!


I used the Garden Life - In Bloom paper.  It's treated with gesso, drops of Lindy's Stamp Gang spray ink, and a stamp from Blue Fern's Essential Textures stamp set.


I embossed the Shabby Brick Bits chipboard piece with Snow embossing powder.  The Brick Rings chipboard pieces are first embossed with Baby Pink and then with Pretty in Pink embossing powder.


My flower cluster includes Garden Blooms, Garden Florals, and Spring Florals.  I have also used 3 pieces from the Garden Life Printed Chipboard set.


The "Love" chipboard piece is from the Good Vibes set.  It's embossed with Ebony embossing powder.

Blue Fern Studios - Life is full of Surprises

Hi crafty peeps! Hope you're having a great weekend.  I'm here with my second Blue Fern Studios DT layout for June...I hope it provides some inspiration :)


This layout is made with the Garden Life - Snippets paper.  I treated it with gesso, the Tattered Harlequin stamp, and drops of white paint.


My flower cluster includes Chesterville Florals and Harvest Lilies. I sprinkled some Prima Finnabair microbeads for added texture.


I framed the photo with a chipboard piece from the Splattered Circles set and a negative piece from the Brick Rings set.  They are covered with Sand and Sea embossing powder.  The title piece, Life is full of Suprises, is embossed in Ebony embossing powder.


I also layered 3 pieces of Garden Life - Felicity paper behind the photo.  This was a fun day, by the way... we surprised my daughter with her first trip to the roller rink, and she learned to skate in no time!

Blue Fern Studios - Cute Stuff

Hi, blog friends! It's time to start sharing my June Blue Fern Studios design team layouts.  All three feature the new paper collection called Garden Life.


My first layout features the Garden Life - Wallflowers paper. I treated it with gesso, drops of Lindy's Stamp Gang spray ink, modeling paste through a Prima stencil, the Serendipity Medley stamp, and a stamp from the Forever stamp set.


I clustered some Garden Florals and Garden Blooms with some Petaloo flowers, Prima flowers, and Prima buttons.


I framed the photo with a chipboard piece from the Graduated Circles set embossed with 14 karat embossing powder.  The Garden Lattice Bits and the "Cute Stuff" title from the Good Vibes set were first embossed with Sunlight Rose embossing powder and then embossed a second time with Rusty Rose embossing powder.

Blue Fern Studios - Sassy

Hi blog friends!   I'm here with my third Blue Fern Studios layout for this month!

Sassy

This layout features the Happy Accident - Chance paper.  I prepared the paper with a layer of clear gesso followed by modeling paste through a stencil.  Next, I added color with drops of purple, pink, black, and white sprays.  When dry, I stamped using the Tattered Harlequin stamp as well one of the Essential Textures stamps using black ink.


I embossed the Swirly Circle chipboard piece with Plum embossing powder.  I did the same on the Sassy chipboard piece, but I also added some Rusty Rose embossing powder on it here and there.  I love the beautiful effect!

Above and below, you can also see some of the Happy Accident Printed Chipboard stickers.


The below "Passion" chipboard sticker is also from the Happy Accident Printed Chipboard set.


My flower clusters include Happy Blooms and Happy Roses.

Blue Fern Studios - Together is the Best Place to be

Hello!  I'm back with my second May Blue Fern Studios design team layout.  This features the new paper collection called Happy Accident.

Together is the Best Place to be

This layout features the B side of the Happy Accident - Fluke paper.  I prepared it with a layer of clear gesso and then applied modeling paste through a stencil.  Next I added color with some drops of peach, orange, and yellow sprays. When dry, I added contrast by using black ink with the Tattered Newsprint stamp and a stamp from the Forever set.


I used Stormy Skies embossing powder on the Together is the Best Place to be chipboard piece.  Isn't it a lovely shade of blue?!  Used 14 Karat embossing powder on the Royal Heart Frame chipboard piece that you see peeking out under and around the photo.


I tucked a blue chipboard flower from the Happy Accident Printed Chipboard set into an embellishment cluster.


The flower clusters include beautiful Happy Blooms and Happy Roses.
