Exploding Box with Einat

Hi dear crafty friends!

Einat here with a new and fun project to inspire you!

Today I'm sharing an exploding box with a twist. It's not a regular exploding box with space for photos. On each of the box walls I added an interactive mechanism to allow room for more photos and make things a little more interesting!

To create this project I used the beautiful Craft Clock Morning Dreams paper collection. I really love the soft colors of teal, green and yellow. I also added chipboard and flowers to embellish the lid of the box.

Supplies used:

Have fun creating!

Masculine Steam Punk Card with Tracey

Hello dear Scrap & Craft friends!

It's Tracey back with a new project for you featuring the fabulous Studio75 Cherry Blossom Collection. While this is a beautiful feminine collection with lovely floral designs, there are also graphic papers in the collection that are perfect for masculine themed projects. My husband has a birthday this month, and I've created this steampunk card to celebrate.

Tips and Techniques
The card base is trimmed from one of the Studio75 Cherry Blossom 6x6" papers, and the birthday sentiment is trimmed from a strip included in the 12x12" collection. I placed the birthday sentiment on a piece of randomly trimmed black plastic mesh brushed with metallic art wax. I also lightly brushed the black sentiment strip with white gold wax to get a grungy feel.

I used the Studio75 Small Brick Stencil with concrete art medium to add texture. I have quite a collection of found and purchased steampunk elements. I selected some to arrange on the card, so perfect with this graphic paper and brick texture.

The background paper is stamped with grungy crackle and text stamps. The steampunk elements are brushed with several colors of wax, then brushed with rust and patina effects paste. Around the elements, I randomly brushed on Bambino Glue and sprinkled with bronze microbeads for added texture.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

All-occasion card and tag set

hello crafty friends!! Lynne here with a card and tag set made with the beautiful Morning Dreams II collection; I love the warm, homey look of woodgrain papers and the soft patterns set the background off so well.

I added fussy cut flowers from the paper and a little cheesecloth, then did a little stencilling with texture paste before misting lightly with Tattered Angels glimmer mist.
The title piece was created with a stackable label from Gypsy Soul Lasercuts; I heat embossed the bottom layer and covered the top one with paper before adding a diecut sentiment.

I used the same techniques on the tag, distressing and inking the edges and attaching the fussy cut bits with adhesive foam tape.The diecut sentiment was heat embossed like the label on the card.

The larger white flower is from the store, and the smaller one that I found in my stash coordinated quite well with it.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I wish you a wonderful and creative week!

Best Wishes card with Studio 75

Hello everyone!

Emmy here today sharing my very first card I created for the Scrap & Craft blog. I'm really excited to be a member of their amazing design team!

Products used to create this card: 
Studio 75 - Blank cards 14x14 cm white
Silver Rhinestones

To create this card you need one 14 x 14 cm white card base. Then you cut a 13,5 x 13,5 cm panel from a pattern paper from The Peony Avenue Paper Pack and distress its edges using a paper distresses. To adhere the pattern paper panel to the card base, you will need a foam mounting tape. 

As a final touch, I sprinkled bluish mist on top.

For my sentiment I used a sentiment tile from the Cherry Blossom 6x6 paper set and a ticket fussy cut from The Peony Avenue Paper Pack. I added a die cut paper doily and rhinestones to decorate it.

To complete my design I added paper flowers (Peach Cherry blossoms) and fussy cut peonies from The Peony Avenue Paper Pack pattern papers.

Thank you for stopping by today! 

Have a wonderful creative week!

Spread your wings and Fly!

Hello everyone, hope you are enjoying your Sunday! I am so happy to share with you my very first project made for the Scrap & Craft Design Team...Inspired by the blossoming of the trees all around, and the fabulous Studio75 paper 'Cherry Blossom' I have created this mixed media Tag...about blooming and spreading your celebrate Life!

I glued a strip of Studio75 'Cherry Blossom 01' paper to a piece of cardboard, cut to give it a Tag shape and distressed the edges with scissors.
Covered with a thin layer of white gesso, then added some stamping with archival ink. Added texture paste using Studio75 Stencil 'Marocco Clover' and once dry I spritzed few inks in different shades of pink and fuchsia, adding water when needed. I then flicked some drops of colours, both fuchsia and black, and darkened the edges for a more distressed look.

As part of the embellishments I have used a strip of the 'Cherry Blossom 01' paper, showing the pattern of the reverse side, a piece of vellum, die-cuts, bits and pieces from my stash, then attached a piece of ecru Organza Rose Trim, which added the perfect vintage touch... here you can see more details...

I have used the following materials that you can find in the Scrap & Craft shop:

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed this project...and always remember to Spread your wings and Fly!
See you next time...Kisses&Hugs!

Shabby Chic Birthday Card with Tracey Sabella

Hello dear Scrap & Craft friends. It's Tracey here to share my first design team project with you, a shabby chic birthday card featuring The Peony Avenue Collection by Studio75 along with a sweet cherry blossom flower and pearl stamens from the store. 

Tips and Techniques
I fussy cut the leaves from the image page included in The Peony Avenue Paper Pack.  To create the stamen cluster, several of the stamen pieces are folded in half and glued together. The sweet Cherry Blossom is dry brushed with white gesso and set into a rhinestone circle pin I had in my stash.

I ran a line of Bambino Glue down the center of the butterfly and sprinkled with prills to form a dimensional body for this chipboard butterfly.

The edges of the focal paper are distressed and lightly inked.

Family-a heritage layout

Hello dear crafters! I'm excited to be posting here for the first time and sorry to be late, but my box of wonderful goodies had to come all the way to Canada!! I decided to create a layout with the beautiful Craft Clock papers, "Always Together" using a heritage photo from about 1915.

The flowers on the papers just begged to be fussy-cut, and I layered them with foam tape.

 I added loops and spirals made out of the paper as well for extra texture and interest.

Some stencilling with texture paste and a little spray of mist finished things off.

Thank you so much for looking! With lovely papers like these, even a fairly simple layout is such a pleasure to create. Have a wonderful day!
