Glittery Pastel Star

Today I’ve got a glittery Christmas decoration to share with Franchville’s range of Glitter Sets.  I chose the assorted brights set with the White glitter to build upon my glittery star.

Franchville materials: Brights Glitter Set (Purple, Blue, Green, White)

Bella materials: Purple Swirls Bling, Purple Fancy Flourish Bling, Purple Borderlines Bling, Purple Florals

I started with a blank star and generously coated this with glue.

 

I then liberally sprinkled the purple, blue, green, and white Franchville Glitter in different sections of the star.

I then adhered some purple Bella Bling around the star to compliment the purple glitter.

I then built my cluster from the middle of the star, matching the glitter shades.

I then added some texture around, with some more sprinkling of glitter on top.

I finished it all off by adding some more purple bling and voila!

The best thing about this star decor is that the colors are not only suited for Christmas, but also any day of the year.

I just love the sparkle and shades of Franchville’s Glitter Sets.  These little beauties are available to purchase at a Spotlight store near you.

Thanks for popping in and I hope you enjoyed looking through my glittery pastel star decor and I’ll be back soon for more glittery inspiration.

Cheers,

A Bright Merry Christmas Card

Hi there.  Do you know there’s only eight more weeks until Christmas? Today I get to share with you my bright and glittery Christmas card which features Franchville’s Bright Cardstock and Neon Glitter Pack.

Franchville materials: Bright Franchville Cardstock, Neon Glitter Pack

Ruby Rock-It materials: Joyeux Noel Paper and Ribbon

Bella materials: White Glittered Cardstock, Bella Bling Pearl Hearts

I added some glittery bright pink stripes to the background of the card with Franchville’s bright pink glitter from the Neon Glitter Pack.  They are very handy, less mess, and easy to use with the convenient shaker cap.

I’ve die cut some flowers and sprinkled some white glitter on the middle of each flower, and some bright blue and bright pink on the edges of the petals.  I then added some bright blue glitter in the middle of each flowers once it has all set.

I’ve fussy cut an image from the Joyeux Noel paper pack and inked the edges with Ranger’s Peacock Feathers Distress Inkpad and applicator, then framed it with Bella’s White Glittered Cardstock.  I also slightly inked some parts of the flowers with the Abandoned Coral Distress Inkpad.

I punched some chains with the same White Glittered Cardstock and added these to the card.  I then sprinkled a wee bit extra of the bright blue glitter on the card and finished it all off with the addition of the Joyeux Noel ribbon and Bella Pearl Hearts.

Thanks for popping in and I hope I’ve inspired you to get your glitter on.  The colorful range of Franchville Cardstock and Glitter Packs are available at a Spotlight store near you.

Think Pink Panel

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and this has inspired me to create a pink project with Ruby Rock It’s fab Bolt collection and Ranger’s Distress Inkpads.

Ruby Rock-It Materials: Bolt Papers (Patterns, Floral, Myriad); Clear Stamp Set, Chipboard Buttons

Ranger Distress Inkpads: Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar, Weathered Wood, Hickory Smoke

I connected 3 wooden panels together and then added a lick of white paint.  Once dry, I the then added some strips of Pattern Paper on the panels.

I added some stitch stamping on the painted wooden panels with the versatile Bolt Clear Stamp Set.  I then applied and blended Ranger’s Distress Inkpads Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar, and Weathered Wood with a Foam Applicator on the panels.

I’ve fussy cut some strips from the Myriad paper and layered these on top of the Pattern Paper.  I then  fussy cut some pretty flowers from the Floral Paper and added these to the cluster amongst a couple of Bolt Chipboard Buttons.

So there’s my Think Pink Panel Display.  It’s now ready to be displayed in a sewing/quilting room for an extra touch of pretty!  Will this month’s Breast Cancer Awareness month inspire you?  I sure did.

Stained Love Card

It’s time to share another Ranger Distress Ink creation alongside Ruby Rock-It Brands, and I’m excited to share with you my stained card using brown Distress color palette together with Franchville Basic Cardstock.

Ruby Rock-It materials: Franchville Basic Card Set, Faded Empire Clear Stamp Set, Bella Fabric Trim, Fundamentals Alpha Wood Veneer, Fundamentals Bitty Bows

Ranger Distress Inkpads: Vintage Photo, Antique Linen, Walnut Stain

I used 2 Kraft cardstocks from the Franchville Basic Card and Envelope Set.  One is for the base of the card, and the other punched into strips and layered on top of each other using my trusty Martha Stewart border punch.  I then blended the Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Inkpads with the Ranger Applicator on the edges of the lacy borders.

I stamped the gorgeous bird banner from the Faded Empire clear stamp set twice for a subtle shadow effect, using the Walnut Stain Distress Inkpad.  I then added the Love sentiment on top of this stamped image by stamping the Fundamentals Alpha Wood Veneer with the same inkpad.

I then roughly cut some Bella Fabric Trim into smaller strips and shaded them with the Antique Linen and Walnut Stain inkpads.  I did the same process with the Fundamentals Bitty Bow, giving it a lighter application.

Some more blending of the Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain inkpads are added around the card for definition, and it’s all done.  I just love the distress stained look on kraft, with a pretty bitty bow on top.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my stained love kraft card.  You can purchase Ruby Rock-It Brands and Ranger’s Distress Inkpad range at a Spotlight store near you.

Cheers,

 

Fly, Be Fearless

Ruby Rock-It Brands and Ranger have teamed up to share some creative projects for the next couple of months.  Ranger has brought out a line of Mini Distress Ink Pad Sets, and today I’m sharing a mixed media layout with the Rusty Hinge, Victorian Velvet, Broken China, and Gathered Twigs set with the Mini Ink Blending Applicators.

I started with a plain white cardstock and came up with a fun, grungy, and rusty mixed media page, featuring my youngest daughter.  Check her out…she always encourages me to fly, spread my wings, and be fearless!

“Fly, Be Fearless”

Ruby Rock-It Brands materials: Borderlines Bling, Blue Butterflies Bling, Gold Florals, Blue Florals, Pink Corrugated Cardstock, Raw & Rustic Clear Stamp Set, Faded Empire Clear Stamp Set, Bolt Clear Stamp Set, White Lettering On Kraft Alpha Sticker Set, Gelato Butterflies

First, I applied the Broken China and Gathered Twigs through some Scrapmatts Hexagon Stencil with the Ink Blending Applicator around the photo.  I then added some stamping with the Victorian Velvet, Rusty Hinge, and Gathered Twigs around the page.

The versatile Bella Borderlines Bling are then added for touches of texture and Bling around the page.  Some more texture has been added on top of these and some splattering of the Broken China and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.

A cluster of Gold and Blue Bella Florals are then added beside the photo, along with some Fundamentals Gelato Butterflies and Kraft Alpha Stickers.  I also used these Alpha Stickers as a stencil, inked with the Victorian Velvet using the Ink Blending Tool/Applicator.  The Scrapmatts Hexagon Chipboards are inked with the Rusty Hinge.

The edges of the page are then inked with Victorian Velvet, Rusty Hinge, and Gathered Twigs using the Ink Blending Tool.  It’s finished off with the addition of drops, gold glitter, and a Blue Bella Butterfly Bling.

This layout is inspired by More Than Words’ September Fearless & Grunge Challenge:

Oh how fun it was to create this fearless rusty grungy page! Thanks for popping in and I’ll be back for more Ranger Distress Ink-spiration soon.

Cheers,

 

Delight Book Box

Hi everyone.  Today I’m sharing a fun off the page project which features one of my favourite Bella collections.  Can you guess which one it is?

Bella Materials: Raw & Rustic Papers (Bunting; Timberland; Sparkle), Watermelon Glittered Cardstock, Swirls and Flourish Bling, Gold Fabric Trim, Chocolate Fabric Trim, Gold Florals

I love the feather prints of the gorgeous Raw & Rustic collection, which is why I made it the cover of this book box.

I’ve added a subtle hint of sparkle at the right side with the help of Bella’s Watermelon Glittered Cardstock.  I’ve whitewashed the top of this glittered cardstock to give it a nice sanded look.

I’ve primed and painted the rest of the corners and sides of this book to match the colors of the Raw & Rustic collection.  All paints and mists are Tattered Angels paints.

This book box is filled with more Raw & Rustic feathery and pretty prints inside.

The muted watercolored stripes paper is very versatile and complemented the fresh feel of the feathers.

The Bella Trim added some softness inside the book box.

There’s heaps of fun feathers for fussy cutting to choose from the Raw & Rustic paper collection.

The Bella Florish and Swirls Bling added some pearly texture and prettiness to the cover.

The Gold Bella Florals and extra fussy cut feathers comprises the floral cluster, surrounded by some golden yellow color.  It’s topped off with a chipboard word which is from Scrapmatts, along with the chipboard rose inside and the fishing net stenciling on the cover.

I had so much fun creating this book box, which is now proudly owned by my eldest daughter.  She couldn’t wait to get her hands on this and it’s so good to see that she’s put it to good use.

Thanks for popping in and do check out the full range of fab Bella products HERE.

Cheers,

 

 

Dear Santa Christmas Card

Hi there and happy August to you! Do you know that there’s only 20 more weeks to go before Christmas?  This has got me started, gradually creating my Christmas cards.  This year I plan on making each card extra special, and today I get to share with you my 2017 Christmas Card #1:

Franchville materials: Metallic Card and Envelope Set

Bella Materials: Raspberry Glittered Cardstock, Black Flourish Bling, Black Bella Florals, True Love 3D Sticker Sheet, Round Buckle

Fundamentals Materials: White Lettering on Black Sticker Sheet

Other: Tattered Angels Paints and Mists

The White Metallic Franchville Card is the perfect base for this frosty feel Christmas card.  I’m also pleasantly surprised on how well it held amongst all the wet mediums I’ve layered on top.

For added glitz and color all in one, I’ve layered some of Bella’s gorgeous Raspberry Glittered Cardstock.  It’s such a lovely shade of pinkish red that’s not overly bright.

To perfect the color combination, I added a cluster of pretty Black Bella Florals on the middle of the card.  I then surrounded it with some more glitzy touches of Black Flourish Bling.

I also added some pieces from the True Love 3D Sticker Sheet amongst the florals, together with a Round Bella Buckle.

The numbers and alphas for the title is from Fundamentals’ Alphabet Sticker Sheet.  These are perfect little additions to any project and come in different sizes per pack.

It’s all finished off with lashings of Tattered Angels’ paints and mists around the red, black and white frosty Christmas card.

Thanks so much for popping in and I hope I’ve inspired you today.  Check out all the range of Bella, Fundamentals, and Franchville goodies HERE.

Cheers,
